I watched an episode of 'Uncovering Aliens' (Alien Invasion) on the Science Channel on Wednesday evening. The show is described as:
Across America, there are more UFO sightings than ever before. 6 million Americans believe they've had an actual physical encounter with an extra-terrestrial. What lies behind this increasing number of reports? Are these UFO's actually extra-terrestrial craft? And do our government know more than they are letting on? A team of four professional UFO investigators has come together to investigate the phenomena. They are travelling across America in attempt to hunt down the truth. This is no ordinary group of investigators. They bring a broad range of skills and experience to the subject to maximise their chance of success. From aeronautics engineering to personal abduction experience this team is unified by one common goal: to uncover the truth behind the growing claims that extra-terrestrial life exists here on planet earth.
Here is the video - 'Uncovering Aliens' (Alien Invasion)
I have worked with several 'experiencers' over the years...and to be honest, many were attempting to hoax me. But there were a few who, IMO, were sincere, detailed and had decent evidence (physical and anecdotal) to back up their stories (ex. David Eckhart).
I have watched 2 separate episodes of 'Uncovering Aliens.' It simply doesn't offer me much confidence in the information relayed by the witnesses. It is possible that these people 'experienced' something....but it seems to me that much of it was embellished for the show.
I'd like to read your interpretation of the show...as well as your thoughts on UFO / alien related TV productions in general. Thanks...Lon
Brazil dolphin is first new river species since 1918
Scientists in Brazil have discovered the first new river dolphin species since the end of World War One.
Named after the Araguaia river where it was found, the species is only the fifth known of its kind in the world.
Writing in the journal Plos One, the researchers say it separated from other South American river species more than two million years ago.
There are believed to be about 1,000 of the creatures living in the Araguaia river basin.
River dolphins are among the world's rarest creatures.
According to the IUCN, there are only four known species, and three of them are on the Red List, meaning they are critically endangered.
It is an area where people see them all the time, they are a large mammal, the thing is nobody really looked.” Read more at BBC
Green Glowing Humanoid Encounter
6/20/2002 - unedited: Me and a friend of mine were in the woods on the south side of Binghamton, NY. we were on a walking trail just off of a main road. the area is fairly populated. we were just hiking at night for something to do. well, on the way back to the car when we reached a spot in the trail that always had given me the creeps for no particular reason. (maybe 75 yards from where the car was parked).
We had both stopped in this spot. so being the jokester i am, i turned off the flashlight for maybe 1 minute at most, it was probably closer to 30-40 seconds. well when i turned around to look behind me, i was encountered by a tall green glowing human like figure. And it was right there in my face. It could not have been standing any more that 6 inches away from me. i was staring nose to nose with this thing. i could not distinguish any facial features. but it had the outline of a human, i could see legs arms and a head. it was glowing so bright it looked like just the outline of a person. no sound no movement just standing there over my shoulder. my friend who was standing right next to me saw the same exact thing. we were not on anything, we had not been drinking. So in pure terror we took off running as fast as we could down the trail to the car. i don't remember ever looking back to see if it was still there. as we were driving away a felt like a burst of energy go through me. my friend did not feel this too. i was immediately overcome by the worst headache i have ever had. out of pain i put my hand on my head, to feel that my forehead seemed to be protruding , like a golf ball sized bulge. my friend could see it at first glance, and drove me directly to the hospital. by the time we arrived there 5 minutes after the incident, the bulge in my head was gone and the headache had subsided. so i decided not to go in to the ER due to fear of being locked up in a mental institution.
this occurred in 2002. just a few days ago i ran into my friend after over a decade later. he told me he was there the following summer, (summer of 2013)and had witnessed the same thing in almost the same location. to this day i have no idea what we saw. but i have never been so scared in my life. - MUFON CMS
Historic $1M haunted house for sale in Florida
A beautiful and unusual home is for sale in Punta Gorda, Fla. It comes with a high price tag and a built in roommate.
The owners of the yellow Victorian say if you don't believe in ghosts, the Sandlin home may change your mind.
"It's a great view so it's a great place to be. And if you have a perpetual 14-year-old teenage girl playing trick on you, kinda fun," said Vander Wynn.
Built in 1893, the historic house in downtown Punta Gorda has a tragic past involving a young girl named Mary Leah.
"So, evidently kerosene spilled onto her, she caught on fire and then the burns ended up taking her life," said Vander.
Ever since the teenager's death, the home is said to be haunted. Homeowners Vander and Natalie Wynn say they've heard footsteps and strange sounds, even the rustling of a young girl's petticoats.
"I hear my wife walk down the stairs, and I call out her name and she says yes from a different part of the house. There's some weird things like that you really can't explain," said Vander.
"She's really not scary she just makes noise. Sometimes I've told her you need to be quiet," said Natalie.
If that doesn't spook you, you could move in. The haunted house is on the market for $1.59 million. But interested buyers should act fast, because even though the couple is leaving the house behind, they're trying to convince their spirited friend to come along with them.
"So we're just gonna leave the door open and the car and if she wants to come she can," said Vander. - KSDK
