Daily 2 Cents: Strange Creature in Oregon? -- Mysterious Pentagram Appears in Kazakhstan -- Multiple Eyewitness Encounter

Fact or Faked? Strange Creature In The Forests Of Oregon

Click for video - Strange Creature In The Forests Of Oregon, USA

A reader sent this video to me...and asked for my opinion.

The footage appeared on the Audio Color World YouTube channel and shows an od humanoid entity crouching down at the side of a road.

Appears to be CGI...and not very well one as compared to others I've seen. What do you think?


UK police recall 'paranormal' reports

Police may be used to mysteries but one person rang the Devon and Cornwall force to report he had been visited by the Ghost of Christmas Past.

The caller from Saltash presumably wanted officers to alert the team from the film Ghostbusters – or even Scooby Doo’s gang.

They may have been reading A Christmas Carol, by Charles Dickens, where Scrooge is haunted by the spectre.

Figures released by 17 forces in England and Wales show that hundreds have called 999 to report supernatural activity.

Logs show 277 requests for urgent assistance because of “extra-terrestial” or “paranormal” activity in the last three years.

Most complain of ghosts or spirits which have possessed someone.

One train passenger said there were witches and warlocks travelling on a train from Edinburgh to London.

A caller in Hertfordshire told officers their partner was “some kind of vampire”.

One unfortunate man believed there was a ghost in his house and had found blood on the bathroom door. It later turned out his friends had played a prank.

Though police deal with illegal aliens of a sort, officers would have been pushed to respond to the 999 caller who claimed they had been abducted by aliens. - PlymouthHerald

Sinister clowns roam Britain

Clowns in Britain are up in arms about impostors who are tarnishing their name by scaring people in public places.

The copycat craze, believed to have been started by a man known on Facebook as the Northampton Clown, involves people dressing as circus characters to surprise passers-by in public places.

Police in Derbyshire received 29 reports of clown sightings after social media claims a man in nearby Nottingham was dressing up and carrying balloons and a knife.

One report read: ''Caller scared as someone had tried to get in to their house - posted on Facebook that a clown had been going around village trying door handles.''

Another said: ''Caller reported having received numerous calls from concerned parents about a clown going up to the windows of houses brandishing a gun and knife, frightening residents.''

Tony Eldridge, the secretary of Clowns International, which represents the entertainers in Britain, said the problem had escalated beyond harmless fun.
''The fear of clowns - coulrophobia - is a real thing, some people will react very badly to this.

''This has nothing to do with clowning. It's a small group of people with stupid views and it spoils the fun for everybody else.''

He said most legitimate entertainers followed a code of conduct that included not wearing their costumes in public.

The trend emerged when the Northampton Clown, who posts photos of himself in public places, gained nearly 200,000 ''likes'' on Facebook. - SMH


Mysterious pentagram appears in Western Kazakhstan

A new Google maps mystery has appeared to rack our brains. A five-pointed star or a mysterious pentagram is 200 meters (656 feet) in diameter and is situated somewhere near Aktau and Akshukur village, Tengrinews reports referring to Lada.

The symbol etched on uninhabited lands of Western Kazakhstan can be found at +43°43'46.07'' +51°07'43.02'' on the Google Maps.

No one can explain the origins of the pentagram in Aktau. The symbol has evoked superstitious associations among some internet folks. However, the hard-core realists believe the strokes of the five-point star are the marks of motor delta plane carts.

The Aktau pentagram is not the first one found in Kazakhstan. Daily Mail reported the first pentagram that appeared in Kostanai Oblast, some 12 miles from Lisakovsk town earlier this year. There were several explanations of the mysterious five-pointed star of around 365 meters (1,200 feet) in diameter situated on the shore of a desolate lake in Kostanai Oblast. The Dail Mail quoted Kurt Yates, from Seattle, Washington who claims to be a pilot: “It's probably an abandoned surface to air missile site. I was a military pilot and these things are all over the place in areas that use(d) Russian (Soviet) air defense systems.” He said that the shape is linked with the tracking radars work during the Soviets. However the conspiracy theory was proved wrong, when archeologist Emma Usmanova told LiveScience that the pentagram was an outline of a park created sometime in the 70s. Star-shaped parks were not unusual for the Soviets as the symbol was popular.

But the question remains: is the pentagram in Aktau another remnant of the Soviet Era, or maybe something else? - TengriNews


Multiple eyewitness encounter

Madera, Ca. - 5-1-1991 - unedited: 15 years old maybe, I was coming home to Madera from Disneyland with a church youth group around 1990 in a Chevy Sprint. We had some short range hand-held radios in each of maybe 4 or 5 cars so we wouldnt get separated in Los Angeles. It was about 2am. We got off Freeway 99 out at Ave 12 (southern outskirts of Madera)and turned left going back over the freeway facing west to take the first guy home when some girls in one of the other cars went nuts on the radio talking about a UFO. I was dozing off in the front passenger seat. The driver and the guy sitting behind me were wide awake. The other guy was completely asleep for this entire experience. When the girls started yelling about the UFO I started to wake up. As we came down off the overpass the driver slowed down as he looked at the object. Firstly, I have to say that all I ever saw was a light. My eyes were blurry from sleep. The other 2 guys, who were not prone to exaggeration at all, said that they saw a saucer shape with a rectangular window and 3 or 4 humanoid shapes in the window. Again, I just saw a light and it was about 1000 ft away and 1000 ft up. When I first saw it, it was moving very slowly from south to north (my left to right). Then it stopped still. All at once, our cars engine and lights shut off. So did the cars stereo and the hand-held radio. The driver just said, "Wow!" or "Wo!" or something like that. I asked him what happened, but he just shook his head and said he didnt do it. Then the object/light in the sky shot from its position to about 1000 ft or so to the right (north) and stopped dead still again. It didnt accelerate. It just went from 0 to full speed in an instant then stopped dead still again without slowing down. It stayed there for a second or two then it shot up again, but this time at about a 45 degree angle up and away from us into or through the atmosphere and looked like it shot right into space. Basically, when it left it looked like a shooting star going the wrong way. At the same time, the cars lights and the radios both came back on. The driver just put the Sprint back in Neutral and pushed the clutch in and started the engine back up. The guy that was sleeping was the one we dropped off first and he never even woke up until we were letting him out. I got dropped off 2nd and I ran to my door and almost dropped my keys trying to get inside because I was shaking so badly. Now that Im older I dont believe it was little green men. Im sure there is some form of life out there somewhere, but I think the military was having fun with us or testing something that night. The only thing that isnt easily explainable is the things movements. I often wonder if all I was seeing was some kind of light or projection. It just moved too fast to be believable. What happened to the car was real enough, though. I just wish I had been completely awake and my eyes had been 100%. - MUFON CMS
