I was sleeping in my room when my dog started growling and barking! My window was open and I heard what sounded like a person outside my house walking in the gravel. I very quietly got out of bed and snuck into a area in my house to where I noticed something pass in front of a outside light casting a child size shadow. I then tried to sneak to the window and peer out and I couldn't see anything! I then went into the garage open the garage door thinking that there was someone outside my house trying to steal or do something that they shouldn't be doing around 330am. As I was standing in the door way after the garage door opened something peaked out from behind a tree looking at me. I was then frozen with absolute fear and panic! I am writing you to try to find out if I am having multiple encounters, because I always feel watched at night and am terrified to be at home after dark.I have vivid nightmares about abduction and often awaken from a dream because I feel I am falling I try not to sleep at night and only sleep during the day! I want answers because I am a 28yo male that is 6'5 and I am TERRIFIED of whatever I saw and is going on! I have only told 2 people about what's been going on with me and a total of 4 about what I saw that night. I don't want to be labeled crazy and I really don't want any kind of exposure, I just want help! - MUFON CMS


Maine blue lobster find could be 1 in 2 million

Teenager Meghan LaPlante discovered the crustacean while checking lobster traps at the weekend.

The bright blue lobster, which scientists say is a 1 in 2 million specimen, demonstrates a vivid shade of blue due to a genetic defect that leads to the excessive production of a certain protein.

14-year-old Meghan, who helps her parents out during the summer at Miss Meghan’s Lobster Catch in Old Orchard Beach, is no stranger to finding unusual catches in her traps but admits that she has never seen anything like this one before.

The blue lobster has since gained the attention of marine experts across the United States and will be donated to the Maine State Aquarium for further study.

Despite its rarity however there have been some even more unusual shades of lobster hauled up from the depths of the ocean over the years. The odds of finding a bright red lobster for instance are 1 in 10 million whereas a yellow one is even rarer at 1 in 30 million.

Rarest of all however is an albino lobster with no coloring at all with odds of 1 in 100 million. - Boston Globe


Scientists: Mysterious Kennewick Man looked Polynesian and came from far away

The mysterious Kennewick Man, who died 9,000 years ago in the Columbia River Valley, was a seal hunter who rambled far and wide with a projectile point lodged in his hip, five broken ribs that never healed properly, two small dents in his skull and a bum shoulder from the repetitive stress of throwing spears.

He came from somewhere far away, far up the Pacific Northwest coast, possibly Alaska or the Aleutian Islands. He might even have come to North America all the way from Asia.

That’s the argument of the editors of a new, 688-page, peer-reviewed book, Kennewick Man: The Scientific Investigation of an Ancient American Skeleton (Peopling of the Americas Publications) that will be published this fall by Texas A&M University Press.

Scientists have told their story of Kennewick Man before in lectures and interviews, but the new book represents the most detailed account of research that came about only after scientists sued for access to the bones. The Army of Corps of Engineers, which has custody of the bones, had pressed the scientists to publish their research. Now it has finally arrived, in a volume as thick and heavy as a textbook.
