Two young men, P. Aliranta and E. J. Sneck, were working in the woods in Kangaskyla, Kinnula, Finland when Mr. Aliranta noticed a 15 foot wide metallic saucer-shaped object descend and land on four thin legs in a clearing 50 feet away. After it landed a short entity just under 3 feet tall glided to the ground from an opening in the underside. It was dressed in a green one-piece "diver's suit" and wore a helmet with a circular faceplate. It approached the young men, walking on top of the deep snow, and Aliranta moved toward it with his power chain saw in hand. Through three windows in the upper part of the object three more entities could be seen. The humanoid retreated from Aliranta and was levitating into the object from underneath when the young man grabbed it by the heel of its boot with his bare hand. He found that touching it burned like a hot iron and he had to let go at once. As soon as the being was back inside the object it ascended with a slight buzzing or humming sound. Both men felt stiff all over and had difficulty moving. Four landing leg marks and small footprints were left behind in the snow.
On Friday, February 5, 1971, two young men from Kinnula. Petter Aliranta (21) and Esko Juhani Sneck (18), were working in the woods of the village of Kangaskyla in Kinnula, near the borders of the counties of Middle Finland and Vaasa. At about 3.00 p.m. they were about to end their work, for the cloudy day was slowly turning dark. Aliranta had just turned off his motor saw, when he suddenly noticed a strange metallic-looking object at tree-top level which was descending straight down. It had the shape of two saucers on top of each other and was about 5 metres in diameter. At the bottom of the vehicle there were four thin (5-10 cms.) landing feet, more than 2 metres long. Within a few moments the object descended in a small opening between the trees, about 15 metres away from Aliranta and Sneck. The last-mentioned, however, did not notice what was going on at this time as he was still busy cutting branches off a tree with his motor saw.
During the descent, a round opening appeared in the centre of the underpart of the UFO, and from this, immediately the vehicle had settled firmly on the ground, a strange little being glided down. It actually did glide down those two metres to the snow-covered ground; there was no normal falling movement. After this, the being started approaching Aliranta. Its movements were very stiff and the steps short. The being looked like a space-man, or robot, and was less than 1 metre tall, perhaps 90 cms. The body was covered with a one-piece suit of a green colour. The head had the same cover, and in the middle of it was a sort of lens facing forwards. The hands were round at the tips and no fingers could be seen. The "boots'" at the feet were a uniform part of the dress, and green as well.
The humanoid seemed to move in a strange way on top of the snow surface; it did not go down into the deep snow as one would have expected. As this entity was slowly but steadily advancing towards Aliranta, he started his motor saw and began to approach the strange walker with motor saw in hand. At this point, Esko Sneck also became aware of the strange happenings; the turning on of the motor saw had made him turn around to see what Aliranta was up to.
"The little green man" and Aliranta were approaching each other, the distance between them now less than 10 metres. Suddenly the being turned around and started eventually to go back towards the saucer. This made Aliranta braver, and he hurried to catch the humanoid. Within the saucer, other entities were now visible; there were three "windows" on the topside of the vehicle (about 1 metre wide) and through one on the right side three moving forms were visible, humanlike, although no features or details could be seen.
As Petter Aliranta was about to get hold of the humanoid, when about 3 metres from the saucer, it rose into the air in a strange way, floating towards the opening from which it had come. The humanoid having risen to more than 1 metre above the ground, Aliranta reached out quickly and grabbed hold of the heel of the right "boot" with his bare right hand. However, he had lo let go of the foot right away as it burned like a hot iron (the wounds caused by the burning on the thumb, forefinger and inside of the hand were still clearly visible two months later). At the same time, Aliranta automatically took a couple of steps backwards, so the entity was able lo glide back into the craft undisturbed.
The moment the humanoid had got into the saucer, the latter started to give a slight humming or buzzing sound, and it slowly started to ascend from the ground. Aliranta felt a weak gust of air at this moment, but no smoke or smell could be detected, nor any light phenomenon (there were no lights visible on or in the vehicle during the incident). As the saucer rose upwards the round opening at the bottom closed (but the landing feet kept their position) and within some fifteen seconds the whole object had disappeared into the sky.
According to the eye-witnesses, the visit of this strange craft lasted at least three minutes. After the saucer had disappeared the men could not talk, for they were too amazed by the whole incident. They felt stiff all over and had some difficulty in moving, especially Petter Aliranta. It took them close on one hour before they were able to walk away from the woods. Before they left they had a closer look at the markings left in the snow, evidence of this incredible happening.
At the end of each landing foot there had been a round plate. These plates had penetrated the full depth of the snow cover (then about 40 cms.), leaving four round prints (about 35 cms. across) in an even square with a side of about 2 metres. Within this square the snow had melted some 5-10 cms. on the surface. The footsteps left by the humanoid were also clearly visible. They were small (15 cms.) and quite circular in shape. The strides were all along the same length (even those made during the chase): about 20 cms - Tapani Kuningas, excerpt from FSR 1971

Airman Compensated For Rendlesham UFO Radiation Poisoning
An American airman has won a legal bid to force military health chiefs to pay for the treatment of an illness allegedly caused by a UFO encounter in Suffolk.
Airman First Class John Burroughs was involved in an incident in Rendlesham Forest in December 1980 which has become known as "Britain's Roswell".
He was exposed to huge doses of radiation whilst investigating a mysterious craft and claimed this left him in need of "lifesaving" heart surgery.
After decades of being "stonewalled", he has finally persuaded the US Veteran's Association (VA) to pay for his treatment.
His lawyer hailed the dramatic legal about-turn as a "de facto" admission that UFOs exist and can cause "physical injury".
Burroughs told Mirror Online: "I was not looking for anyone to believe me.
"All I have been concerned about was getting care for my illness. That was all that mattered."
The Rendlesham Forest incident is one of the great unsolved UFO encounters of the 20th century.
Several members of the United States Air Force witnessed a strange craft flying overhead on three consecutive nights.
Burroughs and a colleague Jim Penniston ventured from their base to inspect the UFO at close range, with Penniston describing a strange silver craft covered in symbols which resembled heiroglyphics.
Shortly afterwards, Burroughs fell ill with symptoms resembling radiation exposure.
But the real problems started in 2011, when doctors were astonished after the mithral valve of his heart had failed - something which usually happens to men much older than 50-year-old Burroughs.
"I couldn't work and was going downhill fast," he continued.
Neither Burroughs nor his doctor were able to access his medical records, which were classified.
Burroughs even claimed the Air Force denied he was employed with them at the time of the UFO incident.
He asked for the help of presidential candidate Senator John McCain, who was also unable to get his hands on all the medical records.
Finally, Burroughs' legal team found two documents from the British Ministry of Defence which showed high levels of radiation were detected at the site where he encountered the mystery UFO.
The US Veterans Association and Department of Defence then agreed to pay for his treatment.
"I'm still trying to work out what I saw," Burroughs said. "I think this is a phenomenon the government is aware of, but are still trying to work out exactly what it is.
"We had a very weird experience. There is clearly something strange going on."

Burroughs' lawyer said the ruling was effectively an admission that UFOs are real.
"In citing the [MoD radiation documents] and in granting John Burroughs full disability for his injuries in Rendlesham Forest, the US Government has by de facto acknowledged the existence of unidentified aerial phenomena which, in John Burroughs' case, resulted in physical injury," Pat Frascogna said in an email.
Nick Pope, a researcher who spent several years investigating UFOs as a employee at the MoD, told us: "I think this development is hugely significant, whatever you believe about UFOs.
"One moment the US government was saying that nothing happened, but the next, John Burroughs and his attorney get hold of a formerly classified report that says John was probably irradiated by something in Rendlesham Forest."
However, Pope is still baffled about what exactly happened that December night in 1980. - British UFO encounter "gave me heart failure", says US airman after military chiefs agree to pay his medical bills
El Volcan de Colima UFOs
I check the WEBCAM photos of El Volcan de Colima (Colima, Mexico)daily. Today I discovered this triangular shaped UFO hovering beside the volcano. The other photos are of different sightings on different days. All photos are dated and time stamped. - MUFON CMS
Multi-Colored Triangle UFO Over Oklahoma
My colleague David Garrison forwarded the following report from a witness in Wellston, Oklahoma:
I have a story for you! Last night I had to go outside to check our propane. It was right at about 1:45 am, the skies were completely clear over our house for the first time in almost a week. The snow was reflecting the moonlight brightly so there was no need for a flashlight. I looked up and was reveling in the ability to see the stars and the edges of the clouds receding from our area. I saw a dark shape with bright lights that were going in a "circular" pattern around a triangular shape. The triangle got closer and for a split second I thought about going back in the house then thought what the heck, they can get me from the house as easy as from outside.
I stood there and continued to watch this object approach. There was no sound, the temperature was somewhere in the low teens. The lights were green, blue, red and white going around the object which confirmed that it was triangular, but I describe the light sequence as "circular" simply because it was going around the outside of the "ship".
I was the only person awake in my family so there was no one to corroborate what I saw. The ship reminded me strongly of the one that my daughter and I saw a couple years ago.
It took about 3 minutes I think, absolutely no sound and as cold as it was if anyone had been speaking within a mile of the place I would have been able to hear every word.
I spotted it at one horizon and watched it all the way past the trees on the west side of the house.
NOTE: Has anyone seen anything similar to this? Lon
Giant North Texas Spider
I received this inquiry:
Once we were going through North Texas and there was, what I thought was persons clothing or garbage, on the roadway. It was a huge spider giant one. I mean GIANT ONE. Never seen anything like it. We swerved to avoid hitting it. Afraid it would hitch a ride. It was back in the late 90's maybe 1997. We were traveling across country from Phoenix going to Cincinnati. We had crossed into North Texas from New Mexico. On the main interstate. It was a clear day but not a lot of traffic. There it was maybe 1 and a half to 2 feet long. I thought it was trash at first from a distance. As we got closer it appeared to moving into our lane. We got out of it's way. I come from the midwest I have seen large garden spiders the size of the palm of your hand but never anything that size.
PS - I forgot to tell you that when it was directly overhead I saw a circular projection under the triangular portion that also had lights rotating around the outside of the ring portion. JB
NOTE: OK...does anyone have any idea what this was? Are there tarantulas that grow that large? Lon
'Haunted' mansion hits the market on Staten Island
A historic, and possibly haunted, mansion has hit the market on Staten Island. The 10-bedroom home is supposedly haunted by the spirits of the former owner and his daughters, according to local legends. The owners are asking $2.31 million, the New York Post reported. The 7,700-square-foot Italianate villa-style home, located at 2475 Richmond Road, was once owned by Gustav Mayer, a 19th-century inventor whose sugar-cookie recipe is the basis for Nabisco’s Nilla Wafers. After his death in 1918, his two daughters remained in the home, living beyond their 100th birthdays and rarely venturing outside. In fact, the former owners, Paula and Emilie, didn’t leave their bedrooms for decades, using an elaborate pulley system to bring in groceries and mail, according to the Post. The property is currently undergoing an extensive $570,000 restoration. - The Real Deal

In Search of the Unknown
'In Search Of...Bigfoot' with Leonard Nimoy (who took over for Rod Serling, after his death) was a documentary about the search for the legendary homind, rumored to inhabit the forests of the U.S. Pacific Northwest. The show featured Rene Dahinden, John Green, Robert W. Morgan & Sam Melville. Of course, we now know that Bigfoot, Sasquatch, Yeti, etc. is a global phenomenon.
Watch the Video - (Leonard Nimoy) In Search Of.. **Bigfoot** (Season 1 Episode 5) - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gQJAYVbslIE
This episode was first presented (April 1977) a year after I graduated from high school. I had already been investigating haunted locations in south-central Pennsylvania, but this documentary opened my eyes to our mysterious and anomalous world. Then in 1981, I had my encounter in Sykesville, Maryland...and my world changed forever. I was hooked. I needed to find the truth about Bigfoot and other cryptids.
NOTE: The 21-DVD set includes all 144 installments hosted by Leonard Nimoy. Also included are two Rod Serling specials In Search of Ancient Astronauts and In Search of Ancient Mysteries which aired prior to the start of the regular Nimoy series.
