Duration:5 minutes

On Sat morning me and my wife saw another strange thing in the sunny clear sky.

We were on our way to Prescott AZ to meet some kids at 8:00 am 10.19.13. We got off from I- 40 and went south on Hwy 89. Halfway to Prescott in some hilly area and covered with small trees. I had noticed a white disc object on the N. side of Granite Mt in the distance. It looked like some smoke that was coming out of the Mountain. Granite Mt still looked the same with rocks, it was light tan. I also noticed that there was some flat areas in the valley, but to me it could have been gray smoke. I kept staring at the haze and Mts in the distance as we went around turns and up and down hills. I then remembered that there are no mesa tops in Prescott and told Terrie to look at what I am seeing. She confirmed that they are flat mesa's with protruding tops. We saw two big ones and one small one very clear and square in the distance. It also looked like some pointed poles below the tops, which were very pointed at each end. They were all one med gray color and very large.! There was no shadows or land layers to see. As we drive about 67 mph, we see the left side of the middle mesa start to distort and change. The white disc is now vanished some how and the left areas are distorting and some things can be seen moving. We lost view from trees and rock hill. When we came out, we saw Granite Mt some other hills and Mts in the valley. They had different shades of color and looked normal in the distance. They looked much smaller now with depth. There is No white disc, No mesa's and No pointed poles any where to be seen. - NUFORC

Tales of haunting help, hurt businesses in northeast Kansas

All things ghostly and ghoulish are a boon to candy companies and party stores in October, but the paranormal can be a little more complicated for businesses that some believe have customers who stay after their earthly end.

Lori Ford, who has owned the Hotel Josephine, 501 Ohio Ave. in Holton, for more than two years, said some people specifically come looking for a paranormal experience, like the ghost hunters who have scheduled an evening investigation Oct. 26. Other people are unnerved by the idea and may avoid the hotel, she said, while some don’t believe in the paranormal and don’t seem to factor the stories in when choosing where to stay.

“It’s a blessing and a curse,” she said. “It hurts our business sometimes because people come in and get freaked out. But I also have a draw for it, especially in October.”

Hard numbers on how many Americans seek out an encounter with a spirit (as opposed to a staged “haunted house”) are difficult to come by because of the decentralized nature of the hobby, but almost one-fifth of Americans believe they had come in contact with one. A 2009 poll by the Pew Research Center found about 18 percent of Americans believed they had been in the presence of a ghost, and 29 percent believed they had been in some form of contact with someone who had died.

The idea of contacting the dead clearly is connecting with viewers on the small screen. Syfy’s “Ghost Hunters,” introduced in 2004, still is running, with audiences of 1.1 million to 2.1 million, though some paranormal investigators have called its methods into question. Syfy also has run programs called “Notorious Hauntings,” “Paranormal Witness,” “Haunted Highway,” “Haunted Collector” and “Destination Truth,” and in October the Travel Channel runs features about hotels and travel destinations that are purported to house otherworldly guests.

Ford said she doesn’t market the Josephine as a “haunted hotel,” but people who have done Internet research before booking a room often come across stories. She said there were no signs of haunting when she worked at the hotel as a teenager, but phenomena apparently began somewhere in the intervening years because the previous owner mentioned a ghost when she bought the hotel.

Ford said she personally has heard noises like someone walking upstairs when no one else is there and the spirits seem to make more noise if a living guest is drunk or behaving disrespectfully, but nothing frightening has happened. She said she doesn’t know of any reports of someone dying at the hotel.

“We just feel that people have been on extended stay and they enjoyed staying here,” she said.

Cathy Ramirez, owner of Ghost Tours of Kansas, said some businesses weren’t interested in being involved with ghost hunting when she began offering tours nine years ago, but have changed their minds as the “stigma” surrounding the paranormal faded.

“I do have locations that want to be on the tour now that weren’t receptive nine years ago,” she said. “They thought it would take business away from them.”

Paranormal investigation has become mainstream enough that some companies offer a ghost tour as an outing to their employees, Ramirez said. No one is guaranteed to encounter a spirit on a tour, she said, but most people who attend enjoy hearing a bit about Kansas’s history and legends while they try to collect voice recordings or catch something strange on film.

Not everyone who works at a place rumored to be haunted believes the tales. Mike Bowman, general manager of Blind Tiger Brewery, said some people think that “Helen,” a deceased woman associated with the building, is still around. He said he believes the noises and lights people have observed can be explained by the building’s age and by car lights bouncing off its metal equipment. He says he suggests the natural explanations to people who ask about the rumors of a haunting, but some people still enjoy coming to investigate after hours.

“It’s a 100-year-old building and it makes noises, and people need something to blame it on,” he said.

Ghosts Among Us: True Stories of Spirit Encounters


Ghost of Vera haunts Pacific University

Vera is something of a local celebrity. She haunts Pacific University’s Knight Hall, playing tricks on those inside and flipping on the lights.

Or so the stories say.

Stories of Vera have swirled through Forest Grove for more than a century, said Jeff Grundon, senior associate director of admissions. As a student at Pacific University in the 1970s, he wasn’t sure he believed the stories, even when his friends said they met her at night.

But when his office as an employee was moved to Knight Hall 20 years ago, he started noticing things.

He has etched the date of the first incident into his brain: July 5, 1993. The hairs on the back of his neck stood up, and he couldn’t open a door.

Grundon said a pileup of events made him a believer. Strange smells, silly laughs. Lights on when he turned them off.

Once, he watched his briefcase slide three feet of its own accord. Another time, a fan turned itself on when he was working with a colleague and a student.

Grundon doesn’t really mind her. If he really needs to focus, he’ll say, “Knock it off!” and she does. She’s mischievous and playful, but never mean, he said.

A paranormal psychologist told him two spirits and a poltergeist occupy Knight Hall. Vera is a good and strong spirit, the psychologist said, and she keeps other spirits out.

The psychologist visited after Grundon brought in a Catholic priest to bless the building. That didn’t change anything.

Student groups still camp out in Knight Hall sometimes, he said, trying to find Vera. His young son looks for her every time he visits the office.

Mary Jo Morelli, president of Friends of Historic Forest Grove, talks about Vera during her Halloween ghost tours of Forest Grove.

And when she tells people about Vera on her tours, some of them have Vera stories of their own.

Iranian Fighter Jets Tangle With UFOs (And Lose)

"In one case over Arak in November 2004, the crew... spotted a luminous object flying near the heavy water plant... When the beam of the jet’s radar 'painted' the object, both the RIO and pilot saw that the radar scope was disrupted, probably due to the high magnetic energy of the object increasing the power of the reflected radar waves. The pilot described the object as being spherical, with something like a green afterburner creating a considerable amount of turbulence behind it. The Tomcat crew achieved a lock-on when it was flying a linear and constant flight path. Once the pilot selected [a missile] to launch against it, the object increased its speed and then disappeared like a meteor."
