Tennessee UFO / Alien Close Encounters

When I started investigating the David Eckhart alien encounters/abduction case I began to keep a file of various scenarios reported throughout the United States. I continue to add to the file when time permits. Most of the cases orginated from the MUFON CMS, Albert Rosales' Humanoid Sightings Reports and NUFORC...but there are more people coming forward each and every day. The following reports are a series of encounters the occurred in the state of Tennessee. I conducted a confidential interview with one of the witnesses not long after their report to MUFON:


On April 10, 2002 at 5:30 A.M. CDT - Crossville, Tennessee - the witness arose and went downstairs to the kitchen and opened the blinds to look for deer on the lake on her and her husband's property. The weather was clear. She saw a bronze metallic octagon-shaped object about 20 feet across which seemed to float on the lake. The object had darker bronze circles around a central raised portion and an extension that appeared to have windows on it. She moved to the glass door for a better view and to make sure that what she saw wasn't a reflection or illusion. She heard no sound but watched the object for about a minute, then ran upstairs to call her husband to look. By the time the two returned the object had disappeared. The water on the lake did not seem disturbed.

The witness and her husband are teachers, former Miami residents and have been friends of the investigator for more than 20 years. The witness had little interest in UFOs previous to the sighting. She related the incident to me and a few other friends on April 29 when we were visiting in Tennessee. It was noted that at the time of the UFO sighting there were few if any leaves on the trees, affording a better view of the lake than when we were there. Two days later the witness and I walked completely around the lake (which is approximately 300' X 200') but found nothing unusual either in or near the water.

On the night of May 3, at 19:30 CDT the witness saw a light coming out of the lake at the same spot where she had seen the UFO. The light flashed and then was gone in a second. That night she slept poorly, hearing what sounded like coyotes howling and some kind of banging against the house. There were no moon or stars visible that night. We checked for animal paw prints but did not see any. The witnesses' husband, who is hard of hearing and without his hearing aid did not hear any sounds.

On checking the witness' history, it was found that she sometimes sees shadows moving quickly and hears noises as of someone walking in and out of the house. She has a possible "scoop mark" on the side of her calf, of which she does not know the origin. At one time she awoke with bruises on both arms. Toilets in the house have so often flushed by themselves that at times the water had to be turned off. - MUFON South Florida (witness friend)



Reported 4/2010 - undisclosed location in Tennessee - (unedited report): This is an on-going abduction case that started when I was about 5 or 6 years old. I am now 50. This has happened to myself, my brother, my Mother, and my ex-wife.

This case is being investigated by MUFON Tennessee, field investigator S. White. The investigation began in Feb, 2010, and has been quite detailed. I am now going to a hypnotherapist in Knoxville for regressive hypnosis. All of the reports and details were given to F.I. White and he has it all written. I am also willing to take a polygraph to insure my truthfulness.

I have submitted drawings and other detailed information. I have detailed descriptions of the aliens, their ship inside, their symbols, and other things they do to abduct people. F.I. White has copies of all of this and will be submitting it all through the MUFON CMS.



Knoxville, TN - 3/2007 - unedited: I was awakened by a light coming into my bedroom window. I stepped out my back door to see what could have possibly been making the light and a blinding whitish green light came towards me. I have a very vague memory beyond that point but woke up naked in some woods next to my house. When I got back inside it was about 6 am, I had lost about 6 hours and I have no recollection of what happened. I have been having severe rectal bleeding since the incident and feel very nauseated. I feel very compelled towards circular objects and find myself saying the word "obtuse" over and over again without noticing, and even in my sleep.

Yesterday for some reason I began to remember the ordeal. I remembered being drawn to the light and stepping forward. It seems that I fell into a trance and was pulled into this blinding light and I remember entering a large room with many beings inside. They were all staring at me and making this strange sound that sounded like humans moaning during an orgasm. They put me into a container which quickly filled with green liquid that I could somehow breathe in, even when fully submerged. The beings looked like little elves or something. They had humanesque feature but little bodies. Their eyes looked like about the size of an orange. - MUFON CMS



Reported in 2009 - Chattanooga, TN - unedited:

To Whom It May Concern:

It has taken me 25 years to write this down in its entirety and share it with any one else. Please forgive me if I ramble.

I was sixteen years old. I had been up talking to a friend of mine on the phone and decided to go to bed. My mother and step-father and younger sister were already in bed asleep. We lived in a modest size single level rancher in Tennessee. I went to sleep and was woken up at 12:34 (yes, I remember the exact time) by a painfully bright light outside of my window. I remember thinking to myself, "Oh great, Drew (a boyfriend of mine at the time) has wrecked his stupid car in the yard...I'm gonna get in so much trouble" I got up out of bed to go see what was going on. I pulled my hair back because it was just a mess and quietly opened my bedroom door. It was an old house and the floorboards creaked, doors popped, I had to be particularly cautious getting outside. I put my hand over the keys in the lock so they wouldn't make any noise when I turned them, and stepped out onto the back porch. The light was so bright it looked like daylight outside but I knew it wasn't. I opened the back door on the porch and started to step out onto the steps....but instead....I started rising up...very quickly...I was first I couldn't understand what was going on...I looked down and could see my house and street getting smaller...i could feel the wind around me but (even though it was February) I wasn't cold. I also realized that for whatever reason, I was not scared. I saw my high school....everything.....then I realized I was over a nearby park....and looked up. There was an array of three lights tightly together, almost like stars, that I began ascending toward. The lights "opened" into a triangular shape and I seemed to pass through that interior space.

I was in a room of was a huge room. It was FILLED with people. HUMANS. I could see....hundreds of them it seemed. They weren't afraid either. We all stood in lines and there were other people that seemed to be asking each one of the humans a question. Just one question. I could hear voices responding....I knew my turn would be soon and I knew no one knew where I was. I saw, what I thought was a telephone laying on a shelf and stepped out of line and went to call my friend Chris to tell him what was happening because I knew he would call my mom, and my other friends right away. A small woman, older looking than anyone I have ever seen before, came over to me and gently put her hand over mine and said I should "put that down" because "it wasn't what I thought it was". She was kind and gentle and led me back to my line. It was my turn at that moment. They asked me my question...I remember responding...then suddenly I felt like I was being sucked back down FAST.....and was back in my room. Where I fell on my bed and went into a very deep sleep. I never said a word about what happened to anyone....I knew that they would say I was crazy or something. So I kept it to myself.

I have tried for 25 years to remember what my question was, what my answer was....and I can't ever seem to recall. I wouldn't even be writing now, if more had not happened to me in more recent history.

When my daughter was 7 (I was 29) my second husband and I had a small apartment in an extremely rural area of Tennessee that where he and I and my two children lived. It was attached to his sister's main house and was over a work shop. I was woken up, at 12:34 am...yes, I looked...and that is exactly the time it was...again, by a tremendous bright light shining in my second story apartment window. I tried to wake up my husband but I could not get him to rouse. I heard the door to our apartment open...I heard footsteps coming up to our living area from the workshop....I got up to see what was I came out of my bedroom, I heard the footsteps reach the top. I should have been looking AT someone/thing...but there was nothing. There were two or three large skylights in the apartment and I could clearly see the entire room. After a second or two of silence...I heard the steps go right in front of me, pass me and head toward my daughter's room. My eyes kept straining to see what they SHOULD be seeing...but I never "saw" anyone. I saw her door open...I RAN...FAST....through her door and into her room and said out loud..."You stay away from my daughter!". The light blinked out instantly. I was left standing there shaking and still seeing "blue spots" from the light. For the daughter was not home that night...she had decided to spend the night with a friend of hers. Her room was empty. The next morning, I went down to my sister-in-law's house for coffee...and casually asked her if her son had gotten home late that evening. She said no, he had been home all night. She asked me why, so I mentioned that I thought maybe someone had headlights or something and was trying to play a joke on me...and told her about hearing the footsteps.....she laughed...then said, "Oh! You saw the angels too!". I was numb. I asked her what she meant....and she told me that she had a visit from something she decided was an "angel" that night around midnight....and that she has had those visits before. I excused myself from the conversation....I was feeling more than faint. It was the first time I had ever had anyone ELSE verify an experience for left me quite shaken.

Many years have passed. I am now 41. I no longer live in Tennessee. I live in Maryland. I have only told two other people about mother...and my husband. I have never breathed a word of it to my children or anyone else.

A couple of months ago, my youngest child, who is 6, got up one morning and asked me what the bright light outside of his window was during the night. He said it was so bright it woke him up. My husband and I are exceptionally anxious...this time I didn't wake up....I really don't know what else to do. We deadbolt our doors and make sure our home is as secure as possible. But, I am not convinced there is really anything I can do to protect him. I don't even know for sure there is anything to protect him from... I have a couple of loose theories but nothing that really adds up...I just really feel...alone. My experiences don't seem to be like others.

I have read so many of these commercialized experiences of being abducted, etc. I do know several things for facts...1) I was NOT dreaming..nor was I suffering from "sleep paralysis" at any point. 2) This has apparently been going on for some time now....3) I am NOT crazy 4) no "experiments" have been done on me that I am aware of, 5) I have no "traumatic" memory of anything bad happening to me whatsoever, 6) there were no little gray people with big black eyes (although the woman that told me to put the item down was shorter than me and seemed extremely old...), and 7) I was NOT the only human being on that ....ship? I know other people have had this experience...I saw them having it....

I am just scared now...and I don't even know of what. I am sure you must get a million messages like this a day. I thank you for your time and if you do not have any answers, I understand. I don't have any either. I just desperately needed to tell SOMEONE about this... case. - MUFON CMS

NOTE: I was made aware of this case not long after it was reported to MUFON. The witness lives nearby and I was able to conduct an interview. I truly believe that the witness experienced a traumatic ordeal that paralleled their description of these events...Lon



Medina, Tennessee - 10/1/2008 - unedited: I woke up in the street. I gathered myself...and felt extremely disoriented. Very similar to how it feels to wake up from surgery. I began to walk back towards my house. I wasnt really thinking. I was scared. And didnt really try to figure out why I was in the street. I just wanted to get back into my house. I entered the front yard. There was a large tree to my right that stands about...three or four stories high. A pecan tree. Something jumped out of the tree. I should have just ran past it. But I was afraid. I ran the other direction...I turned down a couple roads. I had only lived here for a few months. I didnt know the layout of the town well. I had no idea where I was going...I knocked on someones door. Beat on it actually. I screamed but no one came out of their houses. I knocked on someone elses door. Nothing happened. What ever came out of that tree....there was more of them. Everywhere. I couldnt see them. But I heard them following me. I got on the roof of the garage of the second door I knocked on. I was able to do this because there was a truck in the driveway and the roof began at a low slant. Once I got on the roof I saw a bright light. Then woke up in my bed. I had a vague memory of seeing a bright light through my window. Im scare to investigate this. I thought it was a dream. Now I am unsure. Ive been doing a lot of research and a lot of sources say that they are often remembered as dreams. not sure. Ive been seriously considering hypnotherapy for this event and the event of case number 45370. Im afraid of what Ill find. Ive sent MUFON an Email but they have not replied. A friend of mine has had a relationship with these entities. They approached him one night while he was asleep in a lawn chair in his backyard (he smoked outside and it was late at night). One of these things apparently gripped his shoulders and pushed him down into a chair. While two others walked out in front of him. They told him to pull out his phone and record. He showed us the bruises on his shoulders. The message he recorded was meant for me (thats what he said). I have attached it. I broke it into three parts. The third part is where he drops the phone. I just want to know what all of this means. - MUFON CMS

Just the Facts?: Meteor Blast Largest Since Tunguska -- Woman Invents Ghost -- Lab Rats 'Acquire Sixth Sense'

Russia meteor blast largest since Tunguska

A meteor 15 meters across flared through the skies over Russia's Chelyabinsk region early Friday, triggering an atomic bomb-sized shock wave that injured nearly a thousand people, blew out windows and caused some Russians to fear the end of the world.

It was the largest reported fireball since the Tunguska event in 1908 – an asteroid that flattened millions of trees over a wide area in Siberia – according to NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory.

Multiple amateur videos posted online showed the meteor’s flaring arc – called a bolide by scientists – as it crossed the western Siberia sky. Others from the scene included the sound of a loud boom, followed by a cacophony of car alarms. One video showed the hurried evacuation of an office building in Chelyabinsk.

“There was panic. People had no idea what was happening. Everyone was going around to people’s houses to check if they were OK,” Chelyabinsk resident Sergey Hametov told The Associated Press. “We saw a big burst of light then went outside to see what it was and we heard a really loud thundering sound.”
Another resident described the meteorite's “flash."

"I was standing at a bus stop, seeing off my girlfriend," Andrei, a local resident who did not give his second name, told Reuters. "Then there was a flash and I saw a trail of smoke across the sky and felt a shock wave that smashed windows."

The fireball’s trail, which JPL reported was visible for about 30 seconds and said was “brighter than the sun,” lit up one man’s morning commute. “I was driving to work, it was quite dark, but it suddenly became as bright as if it was day,” Viktor Prokofiev told Reuters. “I felt like I was blinded by headlights.”

Estimates of the number of people injured swelled throughout the day, with early reports putting those hurt around 500, with close to 100 people hospitalized. Chelyabinsk health official Marina Moskvicheva later said as many as 985 people had requested medical assistance in the city, many for injuries caused by flying glass. More than 200 children at Chelyabink schools, which had just opened, were among the injured, according to officials.

Russia’s interior ministry said the shock wave caused the roof of a zinc factory's warehouse to collapse, but that no fatalities were reported.

The fireball entered Earth’s atmosphere at 18 km per second, and released hundreds of kilotons of energy, JPL said. The blast's force was the equivalent of the nuclear weapons dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki during WWII – many times over. - NBC News

NOTE: I bet they first thought it was a nuke headed their way...scary. Lon

Woman invents ghost to keep house in divorce settlement

A Victorian woman claimed her family home was haunted in a bid to keep the price tag low enough that she could keep it in a divorce settlement.

The wife, 52, told her husband, lawyers, a property valuer and a court a ghost had been seen at the property.

But she was happy to remain in the house and wanted the chance to keep it, while her estranged husband wanted it sold.

The wife, through her solicitors, wrote to the valuer saying it was "her belief that the property is haunted" and asking how this would impact on the property's value.

The court heard the valuer appeared "rather amused" by the request and replied: "Exorcism is not one of our many speciality services and unless the ghost was held captive in the room to which we could not gain access, it must have been at lunch."

The woman maintained in court there was a ghost in the house and many people in her street knew it.

She said her nephew had seen the ghost some years ago and she "felt something".

The court heard the haunting was confined to one room of the house, the wife's bedroom.

She raised other problems with the property, including a leaking shower, slugs, termites and a freight line near the house that ran day and night.

Federal Magistrate Stephen Scarlett said it was a blatant attempt to persuade the valuer to reduce the price he put on the property.

"I found this account of the alleged haunting to be unbelievable and I am satisfied that the claim was fabricated for an ulterior purpose, namely, as an attempt to influence the valuer to return a low valuation of the former matrimonial home," he said.

The valuer confirmed none of the wife's concerns had any bearing on his $750,000 price tag.

The court judgment, splitting everything the couple owned, allowed the wife to keep the house if she was able to pay the husband $189,000. - Adeliade Now


Lab rats 'acquire sixth sense'

US researchers have effectively given laboratory rats a "sixth sense" using an implant in their brains.

An experimental device allowed the rats to "touch" infrared light - which is normally invisible to them.

The team at Duke University fitted the rats with an infrared detector wired up to microscopic electrodes that were implanted in the part of their brains that processes tactile information.

The results of the study were published in Nature Communications journal.

The researchers say that, in theory at least, a human with a damaged visual cortex might be able to regain sight through a device implanted in another part of the brain.

Lead author Miguel Nicolelis said this was the first time a brain-machine interface has augmented a sense in adult animals.

"We could create devices sensitive to any physical energy," said Prof Nicolelis, from the Duke University Medical Center in Durham, North Carolina.

"It could be magnetic fields, radio waves, or ultrasound. We chose infrared initially because it didn't interfere with our electrophysiological recordings."

Brain training
His colleague Eric Thomson commented: "The philosophy of the field of brain-machine interfaces has until now been to attempt to restore a motor function lost to lesion or damage of the central nervous system.

"This is the first paper in which a neuroprosthetic device was used to augment function - literally enabling a normal animal to acquire a sixth sense."

In their experiments, the researchers used a test chamber with three light sources that could be switched on randomly.

They taught the rats to choose the active light source by poking their noses into a port to receive a sip of water as a reward. They then implanted the microelectrodes, each about a tenth the diameter of a human hair, into the animals' brains. These electrodes were attached to the infrared detectors.

The scientists then returned the animals to the test chamber. At first, the rats scratched at their faces, indicating that they were interpreting the lights as touch. But after a month - as shown in these videos - the animals learned to associate the signal in their brains with the infrared source.

They began to search actively for the signal, eventually achieving perfect scores in tracking and identifying the correct location of the invisible light source.

One key finding was that enlisting the touch cortex to detect infrared light did not reduce its ability to process touch signals. - bbc

UFO Activity Inquiry: Burnaby Mountain, BC

I received this inquiry recently:

The first UFO sighting I had was in the winter of 1968-69. I was living with my parents in Burnaby B.C. Dad came up from the basement asking Mom and I if we wanted to see a flying saucer. We went to the dining rooom window and saw a red or orange circular object, its approximate position was over the southeast corner of Burnaby Mountain. We watched it for 10 minutes from 7:55 to 8:05 p.m. We didn't see any markings of any kind on the surface as it was entirely smooth. Regrettably we went back to watching Rowan and Martins Laugh-In. At 8:30 I went back to spot the object only to find it had gone. 30 years later I contacted UFOBC about this incident but they didn't have any records of UFO sightings going back that far. Ron

I looked around the internet and through my records and came up with the following reports:



Location/Date: Burnaby, British Columbia, Canada - January 2001 - daytime

Two peculiar strangers visited the witness, who had a previous visit after a UFO encounter. These two visitors were different from the others. They were at least six-feet tall, very bony, with head, hands and feet out of proportion to the rest of the body. They wore gray suits that seemed to be "oily", had black ties and hats plus wrap around sunglasses that they never took off. When questioned about the glasses they remarked that they could see perfectly well. Their ears stood out from their heads and their skin was pale white, whereas their fingernails were gray in color. They never removed the hats during their visit. Throughout the visit only one of them spoke. When asked for ID's they displayed "silver" cases that contained a photo, an unusual symbol, plus their names in small print.

Upon entering the kitchen they asked the witness to please unplug the microwave, they also told him to turn the computer off. The two Persian cats were going crazy dashing around the room and trying to get out of the window, which was closed. Each man carried a briefcase with an inverted L shaped handle. The man that did all the talking asked to see the witness' unusual watch. He then removed from his briefcase four small containers, each had a different colored top. Opening two, he proceeded to pour the contents over the watch. He told the concerned witness that no harm would come to the watch. He was given $250 for the watch and told that they would give him the rest later. He told them that he was moving soon, to this they replied "We know...don't worry, we can find you if we want to."

They soon departed without the common courtesies, staring blankly at the witness as he extended his hand. Once again the witness hurried to the bedroom window only to find, as before, no sign of either man departing, nor could any vehicle be heard leaving. After the visit the witness felt drained, had a severe headache that lasted for two days and a rash on his arms, face and chest.

Burnaby Mountain Burnaby, B.C. White Strobing Light

Date: August 26, 2006 Time: 10:00 p.m.

Another strange object flying east, right at this moment, 22;15 disappearing over Burke Mountain. I had my camera aimed over Grouse and Seymour just to see if I could pick up any thing unusual. Night vision on and set at wide angle.

22:00 approximately noticed white strobe just over Burnaby Mountain appeared to be stationary and I knew there are no towers with white strobes over there. I glanced over there but could not see the strobe with the naked eye. Checked with binoculars and could just make it out, zoomed in with camera and found it to be two white lights which appeared similar in spacing to car headlights, I said strobing but it was more like pulsing and not as bright as a strobe, more like headlights being turned on and off. One thing unusual was the lights did not smear like you get at night with moving aircraft. Also found the lights to be moving very slowly east, much to slow to be an aircraft, could have been a chopper but did look like one. Estimated speed about 5 to 10 miles an hour.

At it's closest point to me which would be beside Heritage Mountain in Port Moody I could see a light colored body behind the lights but not make out any definite shape, when the light dimmed I could still see a dim glow from them. I checked with my big binoculars but could only see the lights and only when at their brightest. Object last seen over Burke Mountain in Coquitlam still headed east. When first seen it was just over Burnaby Mountain at approximately 1500 feet and must have been slowly climbing as it appeared to go over Burke Mountain and not around it. So probably up to 5000 feet when last seen.

UFO Sighting over Vancouver, BC of low flying orb, but NASA cannot explain

Date of sighting: July 27, 2011
Location of sighting: Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada

Eyewitness states:
"Wednesday's night sky over Vancouver, BC played host to a pulsating UFO that was captured on video during skywatching activities from Burnaby Mountain Park on July 27, 2011. The UFO was detected by a night vision camera and tracked for nearly five minutes as it travelled SE to NW before disappearing behind a stand of trees. During this period, the UFO was first seen being overtaken by a second, faster-moving object before amplifying its luminous output in what veteran skywatchers describe as a "power-up" incident. While in flight, the UFO performed multiple power-ups, inviting comparison with another object recorded four nights earlier near Vancouver City Hall."

UFO Seen Between Burnaby And Seymour Mountain British Columbia Canada

Date: 2006
Time: Approx: 6:00 a.m.

Not sure if I sent you the following. When I was doing time lapse video over on Old Yale in N. Surrey. I caught the following object between Burnaby mountain and Seymour mountain, the time was about 6:00 a.m. during summer daylight, clear blue sky and well lit.

I was shooting 2 seconds every 30 seconds or so, object was only there for about 30 frames. I copied it to VHS and promptly lost the tape, but recall it as having one black ball connected by a shaft to a white ball, the black ball had 3 apparent disks sticking out like Mickey Mouse ears with room for a fourth.

I exaggerated the length of the connecting shaft, cut it in half. Those reports you posted recently reminded me, wish I could find the video always meant to send you DVD copy, but most of my equipment broken now so even if I find things I can't play it.



Occurred : 11/14/1997 21:15 (Entered as : 11/14/97 21:15-20)
Reported: 11/24/1997 11:15
Posted: 1/26/2003
Location: Burnaby (Canada), BC
Shape: Delta
Duration:60 sec.

I live on Burnaby Mountain and noticed a large, well lit flying wedged shaped object flying very low over my house without any noise. It was flying at a fast and consistant pace, heading towards the North East. It startled me as I caught a glimpse of it from my bedroom window, as it's unsual to have jets fly that low over my house and usually there is the accompanying sound. There were many lights outlining the wedge shape. They seemed to be about the same brightness although some appeared to be reddish while others blue. It is hard to describe something that is so unusual, as I don't have any frame of reference for it. It definitely appeared to be travelling similar to aircraft, as it travelled in a consistent and fluid manner towards the northeast and out of sight within a minute or so. I was listening to the radio at the time and heard the announcement that some space debris had been reported flying over the lower mainland. While listening to the Art Bell show on Sat. Nov! 22, it was requested that anyone who had a close view of the object send in a report. I hope that this report will be helpful. I am curious as to why the media reports stated that the debris fell into the pacific ocean, as the object was heading away from the ocean?


NOTE: There has been substantial activity reported in the area for quite awhile. I'm sure I have only posted just a few of the sightings. A 30 year-old-sighting is difficult to find for the most part...there were few organizations keeping track of these incidents. The MUFON CMS only had 1 report for the time period but there was no information beyond the date of the event...Lon

Alien Encounter In Connecticut?

I received the following anecdote from a woman in Connecticut:

Thanks for reading my email. I had an incident this past weekend that has me wondering what is fact or fiction. This past Monday night I was driving home from work around 9:45 PM. I live in a very rural area south of Falls Village, CT. and I was only 2 miles from my residence. The roads were still slick from the heavy snow we had received, so I was driving very deliberately. All at once, a deer jumped from behind a snow bank and bolted in front of my car. I slammed on the brakes but still skidded into the back of the deer. I didn't see where the deer went, but I was now stuck in the snow bank. I got out of the car and noticed that my driver's side headlight was smashed as well. I tried to push the car out the snow bank but it was not budging. So I had no choice other than to call for a tow truck.

About 15 minutes after I called for help, one of my neighbors was on his way home and stopped to ask if he could help. I told him I had called for a tow truck but I didn't know how long it be before it showed up. He said that he would go home, grab some chains and return with his 4-wheel drive pickup in order to pull me out. I thanked him and he left.

Not long after my neightbor left, I noticed lights coming toward me on the road. The lights were large and very bright, so I figured that it was the tow truck. As the lights slowly proceeded towards me several more lights illuminated above and below the others. The vehicle, or whatever it was, stopped about 50 yards from me and remained there for several minutes. Then all of a sudden I witnessed a brightly lit 'being' floating through the woods across from me. It reminded me of those bright white aliens from the 'Cocoon' movie though I didn't see any facial features. This being quickly floated through the trees then out onto the road. It started to come towards me but I was petrified. I just could not move. It didn't have arms or legs but there was definitely a head and something on the end that resembled a fish tail. It stopped directly in front of me and hovered no more than 10 feet away. There were no eyes or mouth, but I did feel warmth coming from it. It was very calming and comforting. Then it suddenly whisked towards the lights. After a few minutes the bright lights started to fade until it was completely gone.

My neighbor soon returned, as well as the tow truck operator. I asked them both if they had noticed any vehicle with intense bright lights, but they both looked at me like I was crazy. After they pulled me from the snow bank I drove home, quickly took a bath and headed for bed. I was still feeling a calming sensation and desperately wanted to go to sleep.

I was off work on Tuesday so I decided to go and have my headlight fixed. As I approached the area where I had been stuck the night before, I noticed that the area where the lights were was completely barren of snow and the roadway was dry. Did I have an alien close encounter? To be honest with you, I don't believe in UFOs, aliens or any of that weird stuff. But I am having seconds thought as to what I witnessed. Was it simply a spirit of some kind? I have had dealings with ghosts and spirits since I was young. What is your opinion? Beth

NOTE: I asked Beth why she would believe in spiritual beings but not believe in alien beings. She witnessed enough evidence to form a fairly reasonable evaluation. In my opinion and experience, there is a fine line between spirits and non-terrestrial beings. In some cases, these beings could be interpreted as the same type of entity. I think Beth has awoken to a greater sense of truth...that we're not alone on this plane of existance or beyond. Lon

Just the Facts?: Infected by 'ET Life Form' -- Farm House Experience -- Cliff Barackman BTE Interview

Yukon miner claims infection by an ‘extraterrestrial life form’

A miner of precious metals in Canada’s Yukon territory claims he was infected by an extraterrestrial life form.

The miner, Daniel Sabo, discovered a meteorite in 1986. The National Post explains that, over the next decade, Sabo stored the meteorite in a variety of locations: In a drawer, on a ledge, and even in a felt Crown Royal drawstring bag. He took the meteorite to his parents’ home in Arizona with plans to sell it. But those plans were quelled because he had not obtained a permit, as required by the Canadian Cultural Property Export and Import Act, to legally export the meteorite from Canada.

Sabo believes Arizona’s warm, arid climate induced a change in the meteorite because a “green crust” started growing along the rock’s natural seam. Unable to legally sell the meteorite, Sabo decided to return to Canada. The National Post explains, “As he drove home with it, sometimes balancing it in the crook of his elbow, he developed a terrible rash up and down his arm. He believed he had been infected by some extraterrestrial life form, and was mightily scared.”

Back in Canada, Sabo gave the meteorite to geologists at the Geological Survey of Canada (GSC) for testing in 1999–a decision he soon regretted. For some reason, Sabo became unhappy, and requested the meteorite be returned. And he claims what he got back from the GSC was not only missing the piece containing the green crust, but that the entire meteorite was a replica of the one he had given the GSC. The National Post reports that this resulted in “an epic court battle that featured dramatic claims about a devious geologist, extraterrestrial life, government conspiracy and the black market in space rocks.”

A lower court judge found that the GSC did not switch out Sabo’s meteorite with a replica, and that the green crust was of terrestrial origin. These findings have since been upheld by the Court of Appeal for Yukon. The GSC has been ordered to pay Sabo $1,000 for “failing to return a piece it cut off his meteorite for testing.” But Sabo is not done fighting. He reportedly plans to appeal to the Supreme Court of Canada. - Open Minds

Farm House Experience

I moved into a farm house with my best friend. Her grandparents had owned farmland (in the family for 150 years) and there were three houses on the property. Rent was inexpensive and we had a whole house to ourselves! The layout of the house is there are two bedrooms across from each other, connected by a living room. The living room is connected to the kitchen, and there is a bathroom off of the kitchen. There is a wall that is between the kitchen and living room that a piano is located. It is a relatively small house but perfect for two people. When I moved in little things were occurring. We would hear rattling of dishes in the kitchen when no one was in there, see shadows go across the kitchen and my friend even saw an actual man's figure walk between her bedroom and mine. The scariest occurrence that happened was when I was home alone. It was late at night and my friend was staying with her boyfriend so I was alone, her dog being my only company. I went into the bathroom to get ready for bed, and a couple of minutes after being in there, I heard the piano located outside of the bathroom begin playing. I thought that maybe my friend had come home without me hearing, and when i opened the door the playing stopped. There was no one at the piano. I then was freaked out, so I thought I would get my friend's dog to stay with me so I would at least have something else there with me for comfort. When I went to get her out of my friends room, she was growling at the door and refused to come out of the bedroom. She was looking at the door to the bathroom and backed up as far as she could into my friends bedroom. At this point I was very scared, and went into my bedroom to call my friend. As I did, the lights in the living room only started flickering. I was freaked out, so I just grabbed my keys and bolted to the front door. I looked back to see if her dog had come out into the living room at all. As I turned around, instead of seeing her dog I saw a notebook that was placed on the table in the living room fly across the room and hit the wall, then sitting on the floor. After this incident I felt very uneasy in the house although nothing like this has happened to me again. - Reddit

Would you eat artificial meat?

The next time you’re about to bite into a hamburger, take a moment to consider the resources that went into making it. In a recent Solve for X talk, Andras Forgacs laid out all the statistics, and explained how tantalizingly close we are to a more sustainable method of meat production. Basically, humanity may soon be 3D printing meat instead of growing it in an animal.

Forgacs starts by explaining just how costly a single quarter-pound beef patty is to produce. For that one serving, 6.7lbs of grains, 600 gallons of water, and 75 square feet of grazing land were used. Now multiply that by 1000 to find your (approximate) impact — the average American eats over 220lbs of meat each year. Additionally, at least 18% of greenhouse gas emissions are due to meat production. All this for one burger?

As economic opportunities continue to lift populations around the world into the middle class, demand for meat is rising. With 7 billion people on the planet, we are sustained by 60 billion land animals. When the population hits 9 billion somewhere around 2050 we would need 100 billion land animals. That would be ecologically devastating, so something has to change.

Advances in bioengineering have been able to produce meat analogs, but the process has always been stupendously expensive, and the results were only passable. It turns out that it’s actually very difficult to match the taste and texture of animal muscle tissue by growing cells in the lab. The marbling of fats and connective tissue is integral to the experience of eating a burger.

Applying 3D printing to artificial meats could be the answer, according to Forgacs. If you take tissue engineering and add in some 3D printing, you get the burgeoning field of bioprinting. Researchers are working with cell aggregates as the medium in bioprinting (as opposed to plastics in regular 3D printing). Layer after layer of cells can be laid down to more closely resemble the genuine article. Researchers can basically build a block of muscle that never lived.

So maybe it’s going to be possible to make artificial meat that feels and tastes like the real deal, but what about cost? Well, Forgacs concedes that it does still cost a few thousand dollars to make a pound of meat in the lab. Unless you’re seeking the most expensive burger in the world, that’s no good. Still, the cost of real meat is inevitably going up and the printed stuff will become cheaper as economies of scale kick in. The process right now is taking place in a research lab, not a large production facility.

Printed meats will eventually become cost-competitive with the dead animal kind. Until then, we may all have to take a closer look at what we’re eating. - Geek


North Korea...what you may not know

I am fascinated with North Korea, as some of you may know. Mental Floss posted a list of things that you may not know about the hermit nation:

Recently, the world was set on edge when North Korea tested a multi-kiloton nuclear bomb at a facility in P'unggye. It’s always interesting to know who’s on the other side of the Bomb, so here are ten things you might not know about North Korea.


While a real world occurrence of 2012’s Red Dawn is impossible even by the admittedly low standards of 80s action film remakes, North Korea does have a really, really large military. The country has universal conscription in accordance with its constitution, which states: "Defending the fatherland is the supreme duty and honor of citizens. Citizens shall defend the fatherland and serve in the armed forces as prescribed by law." It is estimated that 1.1 million males are on active duty military status, making it the fourth-largest army in the world. Its reserve force of 8 million is the world’s largest.


Sophie Schmidt recently toured North Korea with her father and provided a fascinating written record of her experience. Among items which must be declared at customs include “killing device,” “exciter,” “hand phone,” and “publishings of all kinds.”


Professor Daniel Schwekendiek from Sungkyunkwan University in Seoul studied refugees from North Korea. Compared with those who live in South Korea, there is a difference in height of 1 to 3 inches. He observed that the disparity is most striking among children. "The height gap is approximately 4 cm (1.6 in) among pre-school boys and 3 cm (1.2 in) among pre-school girls, and again the South Koreans would be taller." Martin Bloem, head of nutrition at the World Food Programme, attributed the difference to the poor diet of North Koreans. He says, "Food and what happens in the first two years of life is actually critical for people's height later.”


Everyone knows that Kim Jong-Il was called “Dear Leader” by the state press. But North Korean journalists could get a little more creative than that. Among other titles, the North Korean leader was called: “Brilliant Leader,” “Guiding Sun Ray,” “Ever-Victorious, Iron-Willed Commander,” and “Dear Leader, who is a perfect incarnation of the appearance that a leader should have.”


The incumbent president of North Korea is Kim Il-Sung. He assumed the office of the Eternal Presidency on July 8, 1994, and he has steadfastly held onto power, even though he’s been dead for 18 years. This makes North Korea the world’s only necrocracy.


If you’re an educated North Korean, there’s a good chance you went to Kim Il-Sung University. (You might even have read the Complete Collection of Kim Il Sung's Works, a riveting hundred volume work.) Sports fan? See you at Kim Il-Sung Stadium. We can get there by crossing Kim Il-Sung Bridge. And just to shake things up, let’s meet at the Immortal Statue of Kim Il-Sung (which is one of 34,000 statues of Kim Il-Sung in North Korea, not including the Towers of Eternal Life in each town). But that’s nothing next to his son, who can reportedly control the weather based on his moods.


In 2009, satellite imagery revealed a lot about the high life of the Kims, and the terrifying subjugation of the North Korean people. Photographs revealed details of Hwasong Concentration Camp, generally known as Camp 16, one of the country’s most notorious prisons. According to the Wall Street Journal, it is roughly 300 square miles. There are 20,000 political prisoners at Camp 16, and it is located near a facility for testing nuclear bombs (because the hell of lifelong forced labor isn’t enough). Things you might expect to find in a North Korean prison include torture, executions both public and secret, starvation, disease, and infanticide (in the cases where expecting mothers were incarcerated).


When he wasn’t orchestrating genocide, Kim Jong-Il was building mansions. He had 32 residences ranging from ornate beach houses to frightful massive mountain top palaces. Presumably, they weren’t returned to the people when he died. After all, the late dictator remains in office as Eternal General Secretary of the Workers' Party of Korea. And what better way to recover from a long day’s work than a few rides down a garish poolside water slide? For what it’s worth, when Kim Jong-Il came to power, the price tag of ceremonies honoring he and his father came to $2.68 billion.


The Supreme Leader of North Korea is Kim Jong-un, who also holds the positions of Supreme Commander of the Korean People's Army, First Secretary of the Workers' Party of Korea—look, I’ll save you some time here. He holds all the titles. The state press has called him the “Great Successor.” He’s the youngest head of state in the world, holds a physics degree, and loves long-range rockets and nuclear weapons. Upon his father’s death, Kim Jong-un was declared the "party, military, and country’s supreme leader who inherits great comrade Kim Jong-il’s ideology, leadership, character, virtues, grit and courage." Great.


Kwangmyong is North Korea’s intranet, available for the browsing of Kim fan pages by the North Korean people. It is not connected to the Internet, because—well if you made it this far in the list I don’t really need to explain why. Kwangmyong has email, news, an electronic library, and scrubbed science material from the world media. The official Internet presence of North Korea wants you to know that “The Democratic People's Republic of Korea is a genuine workers' state in which all the people are completely liberated from exploitation and oppression. The workers, peasants, soldiers and intellectuals are the true masters of their destiny and are in a unique position to defend their interests.” - Mental Floss

Lizard Beings: Encounter & Engagement

During the past months I have collected anecdotes from readers who had personal experiences or were told of cryptids / anomalous encounters in Vietnam and other parts of Indochina. I received a particular narrative that was much different than the others that had been forwarded to I decided to publish it separately. The post is a compilation of 3 emails, which included answers to a few of my questions. The man who provided this information was, at the time of the incident, a U.S. Army corporal...who has since retired from the military after a lengthy career. He did not give me specifics as to his unit and mission...but feels strongly that his experience should be told. He provided two identification references, which checked out. Overall, this man served a distinguished military career and his reputation is quite admirable from what I have seen. Some of the information has been edited at the request of the witness:

In 1970 I was serving as a corporal in the U.S. Army – deployed to South Vietnam in an region about 30 miles south of the DMZ. At the time I was second-in-command of a squad of soldiers. We had setup a bivouac in a jungle area that had a few steep hills. That evening my section was ordered to patrol one of the small valleys west of the encampment. We moved out led by our sergeant.

Not long after entering one of the small valleys we detected movement ahead of us. It seemed to be scattered activity, so we doubted it was VC but we weren’t positive. We hunkered down for about 15 minutes getting occasional glimpses of something moving within the trees and brush. There wasn’t enough light to detect what we were observing even though the moonlight was bright that night.

After awhile the activity halted, so we continued to move slowly through the valley. As we approached a sheer wall on the hill it looked like someone or something had stacked large stones and boulders in the pass in front of us. There was also an opening in the hill side that looked like a cave entrance – approximately 5 foot high and 3 foot wide narrowing at the top. When observing the passageway, it appeared to have been cut away by machinery – the edges were smooth with small even-spaced grooves.

We were puzzled by this because we had never seen enemy caves like this – just underground tunnels. The sergeant suggested that it may be a VC supply depot, so we started to assess how we were going to investigate the cave.

About this time, things got very strange.

We began to notice a putrid odor emanating from the cave entrance – the only thing I can compare it to was rotting eggs and human decay. It was so revolting that a few of the soldiers were becoming ill and started to back away into the jungle – including the sergeant. I was directing a light into the entrance in order to observe anything, but there was a haze that was impossible to see through. We had no idea what was before us.

The entire squad took a position in the heavy brush approximately 150 feet from the entrance – far enough not to be detected but close enough to observe the cave entrance. We quietly remained there for what seemed like forever. The jungle was strangely calm though we heard rumbling sounds coming from the distance. It was really eerie. The sergeant was sitting near me talking to himself - it was obvious that he was frightened. I was looking at the rest of the squad – each had wide eyes and scanning the area. No one was going to doze off during this patrol.

After several hours, dawn was approaching and it started to lighten up. I checked my watch – it was just before 0500 hours. Just then we noticed movement in front of the cave. A being (I first thought it was a man) moved through the entrance into the clearing in front of the cave. As it stood up from a crouch it stood at least 7 foot high and started to look in our direction. At that time, another similar-looking creature was moving out of the cave. They were making hellish ‘hissing’ sounds and looking directly at us.

The only way I can describe these beings is that they looked like upright lizards. The scaly, shiny skin was very dark – almost black. Snake-like faces with forward set eyes that were very large. They had arms and legs like a human but with scaly skin. I didn’t notice a tail – though they wore long one-piece dark green robes along with a dark cap-like covering on their heads. I never noticed if they had anything on their feet.

No one gave the order – it seemed like the entire squad opened fire at once. Every piece of vegetation between us and them was quickly sheared away. I yelled out a cease-fire order – at the same time I was looking in the direction of the cave. There was nothing there. We immediately checked our flank in case these things circled around us – but there was nothing.

As we approached the cave, ready to resume action if needed, it became apparent that the beings had escaped – most likely back into the cave. It was soon decided to set charges and close the cave entrance.

When we returned to camp we all seemed to be in a daze. There was little discussion of the incident and we were never debriefed – so I know the sergeant never filed a report. Then again, if he did, it was kept quiet by the brass.

NOTE: Well...I told you. None of the anecdotes or narratives I received match this one. But then again, I never know what will turn up in my mailbox. I look forward to receiving your well-written sighting and incident reports. Thanks...Lon

Very Crazy, G.I.!: Strange but True Stories of the Vietnam War

Just the Facts?: Mysterious Scar -- Little Boy Vanishes In My House -- Demon Attacks School

Mysterious scar

I've lurked here for a little while now and finally decided to share one of my stories. This is kind of tl;dr, so I'll summarize up here. I saw three things that defy logic in my room one night and woke up the next morning with a scar on my stomach.

When I was almost 16 (28 now for some reference) my mom, step dad, and I lived in a little community in a canyon. It was a two story house with history going back to the Texas-Indian wars. I was friends with most of the other people my age in the area and a few of them were wiccan. It was through them that I developed an interest in the occult. We tried a few 'summonings' but since nothing ever happened I wrote it off as fake.

I was an only child from my mom (my parents divorced when I was three) so I had the entire upstairs to myself. It was a friday night and I was up late watching cartoon network. I turned the tv off and rolled over to face the wall to try and get some sleep. All of the sudden my tv turned itself back on. I didn't know why it did that so I just turned it back off with the remote. But before I could roll over it was back on again, this time the only thing showing was the white static of a dead signal. I reached for the remote again but it turned itself off before I could do it. Then the tv turned off and on rapidly a few times before staying on. By this point I was more than a little unnerved, especially since the channel was now on one we didn't get. Religious programming coming in clear. It was something from the Catholic church talking about demons, an interest I had back then but not something I wanted to be educated about by the church. About 10 minutes passed and I got more irritated than unnerved by the fact that my electronics weren't behaving as I thought they should. I reached for the remote and turned the tv off again, almost daring it to come on. Thankfully it did so I rolled over and tried to go to sleep. It was an old wooden house so there were a lot of random creaks but having lived there for so long I knew where each one was. One in particular was beside the futon I used as a couch. It wasn't out of the ordinary for my mom to come and gripe at me for being up so late so I looked back over expecting to see her. I didn't see anything and I realized that I didn't hear my door open. I stared at the spot for a few minutes before a shape leaned around my futon to look at me. It an imp for lack of a better way to describe it. It couldn't have been more than three feet tall. Then I noticed an unnaturally thin, unnaturally tall thing standing near my doorway, leaned over because it was too tall for the room. Both were watching me and not moving. By this point I was starting to get scared, but I didn't move or say anything. I knew that it couldn't be just my imagination because plenty of moonlight was coming through the window in front of the futon. My room was rectangular with the window and door on the opposite side of the wall where my bed was with the futon in the middle. These things seemed to defy the moonlight because I couldn't see much more than shadowy forms even though the rest of my room was relatively well lit. The third figure was just icing on the cake. It was huge and looking into my room from the second story window. There wasn't a balcony or ledge for anything to be standing on. The tall thing and the big thing both looked like their heads had a bunch of jagged horns coming out of them. That or they were crowns of some sort. They didn't make any moves towards me but I got a feeling that they weren't exactly nice. Then after I blinked they were gone. I got up and turned on a light but there was no trace that anything was there. I tried to force myself to stay awake but eventually I passed out. The next morning I thought nothing of it all until I went to get in the shower and noticed a pinkish scar on my stomach. It's just to the right of my belly button and goes from slightly above my waist to right under my diaphragm at an angle. My parents had no idea about it and couldn't provide any explanation.

Fast forward to when I was 25. I told the story to a good friend of mine that I made in the Army, one who said he knew a lot about things of that nature. After I showed him the scar he got a scared and confused look on his face and kept asking me how I was still alive. When I tried to push for more information he just shook his head and walked away, not wanting to continue the conversation. I still can't get him to tell me what he knows. I was kind of hoping that maybe someone here could help. - Reddit


Brazilian woman laced vagina with poison to kill husband

A Brazilian woman has confessed to trying to kill her husband by putting poison in her vagina and urging him to have oral sex with her, a news agency claims.

The bizarre murder plot, dubbed "cunning cunnilingus" by one commentator, took place in the city of Sao de Jose Rio Preto.

The intended victim, a 43-year-old man who has not been named, says his wife tried to lure him into bed and encouraged him to perform oral sex on her. His suspicions were aroused when he noticed an unusual odour emanating from her private parts and, fearing she was unwell, took her to hospital, Brazil's Tvi24 reports. Medical tests revealed she had doused her vagina with enough of the unspecified toxin to kill both her husband and herself.

Confronted with the test results the woman reportedly confessed to her crime. It is believed she hatched the bizarre plot after asking her husband for a divorce, a request he now seems rather more likely to acquiesce to. Tvi24 says the woman has received medical treatment and sources claim her husband plans to sue her for attempted murder.

Vagina homicide is, needless to say, a highly unusual crime and a local police officer called Walter Coacino Junior has reportedly ordered "further investigation" due to the "nature" of the case. The woman may still face murder charges, he said.

The Jezebel website points out that "poisoning someone through your vagina is not that good of an idea" because "your vagina is fairly absorbent and shoving a bunch of poison in it will probably hurt you as much as it hurts the person you're trying to kill."

But Salon's Katie McDonough says the fact the man rushed his wife to hospital despite her death-by-vagina plotting suggests "chivalry is not dead". - The Week

A little boy vanished in my house - 4 witnesses

(Unedited): I posted this as a reply to an askreddit a while back, but it was so buried i figured it deserved its own post.

A few years ago i was living in a house with some friends. One afternoon 4 people were home: my boyfriend, 2 roommates and myself. The doorbell rang. I heard my roommate answer the door. The exchange i overheard seemed odd, so i went to see who it was. There was a little boy (maybe 4 or 5 years old) standing at the door who seemed to be upset. I'd never seen him before, but just assumed he was a neighbor kid. We didn't really know many of our neighbors, so the fact that we didn't recognize him wasn't alarming. He asked if his mom was there. We told him that she wasn't. He looked really stressed and said he needed to find his mom. We told him we would try to help him out. By now my boyfriend and other roommate also gathered to see what was going on. The boy pushed passed us and just walked into our home. The layout of our house consisted of a living room and a kitchen that you entered into and then their was a hallway leading to 2 bedrooms and a bathroom. One of the bedrooms led to another tiny room (like a sunroom type thing) which had a door leading to the back yard. This door was kept locked with a deadbolt. The kid bolts back into the hallway towards the bedrooms. We are all just in shock that he would just rush into our house like that, so its a few moments before one of my roommates and i follow him back. We check the first room. He's not there. Check the bathroom. Not there. Check the other bedroom and sunroom. Not there. And the back door is still deadbolted, so he couldn't have left. Plus we would have heard it open. We started checking cupboards, closets and under the beds to see if he was hiding. All the windows were closed and too high for him to reach anyway. He couldn't have just run back out the front door either since my other roommate and boyfriend were still in the living room. He. just. disappeared. We still have no idea what happened. Never saw the boy again and never had frantic parents/police officers stopping by about a missing boy lost inside my house.

Also, we were all completely sober. It was an otherwise normal afternoon. And this was a real boy. Not a ghostly apparition of a boy or anything like that. Glitchy, i say. - Reddit

Demon attacks school - Prayer team called in for possessed student

Classes ended prematurely at a Corporate Area high school last Thursday following reports that there were demons at the institution, one of which possessed a female student.

THE STAR understands that the demon revealed himself and discouraged other students from praying for the possessed girl warning them that if they disobeyed he would leave the girl's body and enter theirs instead.

It was also understood that fear hung over the institution forcing the school's administration to seek the assistance of a special prayer team that specialises in demon possession. The prayer team is from a nearby church.

When the team arrived, they were reportedly greeted by a group of Baptist pastors who were eager to lend their assistance to rid the school of the demons.

Subsequently, the school's administration summoned students to a general prayer assembly feeling confident that the scare had ended but they were in for a surprise.

"The pastors said dem feel the evil spirit all over the school so they called the school population to an assembly. In the middle of assembly, suddenly out of the ceiling, a bird's head, cut off from the bird, drop down inna the middle of the assembly. It was chaos after that," a source who witnessed the incident said.

The school's vice-principal was reluctant to elaborate on what transpired at the school on the day of the incident and downplayed it as something minor.

"That's something at the school. I'm not going to disclose what took place. Whatever took place was not something drastic. Whoever told you should have given all the details," she said.

When further pressed in an attempt to determine the credence of the allegations, she remained tight-lipped saying only, " I don't have anything to say about that ". - Jamaica Star
