Daily 2 Cents: Strange Light & Black Helicopters -- F/A-18 Hornet Pilot Recalls Radar Oddity -- Hitchhiking Ghosts Seduce Drivers

Strange Light & Black Helicopters

1/12/2015: I am submitting this report on behalf of the eyewitness who wishes to remain completely anonymous. I felt that these sightings were extraordinary having occurred at the same time of day, 4 days in a row, with multiple witnesses and needed to be reported. The following is a description of what the witness saw.

I live in Sykesville Md, & work in Frederick Md. I travel route 26 quite regularly. Never seen anything like what I saw last week. On my ride to work Monday January 12th I saw a bright light in the sky. At first I thought it was just a plane but as I continued to drive towards Frederick, I knew it was not a plane or anything I knew it to be.

I passed South Carroll High School & sat at the red light and looked slight left or south west of to see if I could figure out what I was looking at. As I started to drive I noticed this bright light was in the shape of a teardrop, with a bright light that didn't really go with the sky canvas that morning. Which is why it really stood out. It got real bright then back to its regular brightness, what I first noticed.

I also noticed below it were smaller lights that obviously were not attached to the light. They were very separate but clearly with the bright light. As I got closer to Frederick, maybe just about to Taylorsville I noticed two helicopters on either side of the light.

They were black. Very synchronized. The helicopters would go towards the light and then the light got brighter and then when they backed off a bit the light went back to its regular brightness. The two lights below were not as big as the bright light. Id say they were as big as the helicopters. This went on for at least 30 mins until I got right outside of Liberty town, then they were gone. Disappeared. This happened at the same time, Tues, Weds, and Thurs.

The only difference the helicopters didn't show up on Weds or Thurs.

Tues morning I had actually pulled over so I could watch what was going on. There were other people as well that had pulled over to see what was happening. - MUFON CMS

NOTE: This occurred just a few miles west of my home. I'm going to try and look into this...if I come across anything, I'll post an update. Lon


F/A-18 Hornet Pilot Recalls Radar Oddity

In the summer of 1999, I was a F/A-18 pilot flying with a tanker escort to Rota, Spain. Our mission was to move 12 of our aircraft to support NATO Operations in combat missions against the Serbian armed forces in Kosovo.

While flying across the Atlantic with a block altitude of FL260-FL290 and approximately 900 nm west of the Azores I had my radar scanning the ocean for ships. I had the radar running in SEA mode to track ships. This mode will give us a contact on the radar display and also a vector of the direction of travel and its speed. My radar picked up a contact 80nm in front of my aircraft and 20 degrees to the right. What struck me, was this contact was at 3,000 feet and tracking slowly east at about 10-50 knots. That was very unusual. I watched it for a few moments changing direction and altitude as low as 1000 feet. I decided to try to lock the object with my radar. I put the radar back in air to air mode and I got a steady lock at 60nm but what happened from there was truly shocking. The object started to accelerate and climb. Within 13 seconds, which is a full sweep of the Hornet APG-73 radar, the object went to over 1,000 knots and climbed to 70,000 feet and still climbing. My radar continued its lock until the object gimbaled the radar and I lost contact. This object reacted to my radar and it appeared to know that it was being tracked. The radar was fully functional. I never saw the object but it did come close to me, less than 20 nm, as it accelerated and climbed. The weather was cloudy with about 3 miles of visablilty As a highly trained fighter pilot, I know that this was not a radar anomaly. I was in shock that this happened. I did not tell anyone in the flight for fear of ridicule. My background was a F/A-18 pilot and flew F-16's with the Air National Guard. It has been some time, but I remember this experience as if it was yesterday. - MUFON CMS


Man Tries to Bury 10-Year-Old Daughter Alive in His Backyard

A man was arrested in Tripura, northern India, for trying to bury his 10-year-old daughter alive in the backyard of his home. The incident happened on Friday afternoon in Putia village close to the India-Bangladesh border.

Police sources say the man's dislike for the girl child led him to commit the alleged crime. The accused, Abul Hussein, allegedly dug a pit in his backyard while his wife was away. He then allegedly put his daughter in the pit, hands tied, mouth taped and filled earth upto her chest level.

Realising that his wife had returned home, Hussein allegedly placed a bamboo-drum over his daughter's head, intending to bury her later. But his wife soon grew suspicious and raised the alarm, following which neighbours rescued the girl. They later thrashed her father and informed the police.

Hussein has been booked for attempt to murder and was sent to judicial custody till January 20 by a local court. "Abul Hussein was roughed up by the people who rescued the girl from half-buried condition. Considering his week physical condition, the court sent him to Judicial Custody for four days reserving directive on our plea for police-remand," said Amal Chakraborty, the officer-in-charge of the local police station. - NDTV


Sleep paralysis can lead to ghost sightings

The terrifying phenomenon may account for numerous sightings of ghosts, monsters, demons and more.

Most people will have experienced sleep paralysis at least once at some point in their lives - that disconcerting sensation of waking up in bed yet being unable to move or call for help.

Researchers believe that sleep paralysis occurs when a person wakes up during REM sleep, a state in which dreams are experienced but during which the muscles are paralyzed, most likely as an evolutionary mechanism to prevent us from physically acting out the movements in our dreams.

While most of the time the paralysis will disappear within a minute or two of waking, for some the experience can continue for some time and bring with it a host of disturbing hallucinations.

Some of the less common symptoms of sleep paralysis can include the feeling that someone is watching you or standing over your bed. The intruder, which may take the form of any horror your mind can conceive, can even climb on top of you, producing the feeling of being crushed.

Some psychologists argue that incidents of sleep paralysis therefore may account for stories of people waking up in the night to see apparitions, dark figures, demons or other entities present in their room while being unable to move or call for help. Read more at Live Science

Hitchhiking Ghosts Seduce Drivers

Sexy hitchhiking ghosts could be seducing lonely travellers on a busy road near Swansea, a paranormal investigator has claimed.

Gavin Davies, the author of Ghost Sex, says he is looking into a series of nightmarish incidents where unsuspecting drivers are lured into sex situations with good-looking ghouls .

One of them involved a local man who told Mr Davies he was tricked by a figure disguised as a beautiful woman hitchhiking on the A40.

He said: "I was approached by a man who did not want to be identified because it could expose him to ridicule, who told me he picked up a hitchhiker who turned out to be a ghost that seduced him, Wales Online reports.

"Now, I’m aware that stuff like this is often intended as erotica and people have fantasies about it. And at first I thought it was a wind up call. But this man genuinely believed he was seduced by a paranormal entity.

"He said that he was driving back from a date that hadn't gone as planned.

"He saw a beautiful woman on the side of the road and he picked her up."

According to Wales Online Mr Davies said the man, known as "John", then pulled over and took the mysterious woman into a public toilet.

He said the ghost then ravished John in terms too graphic to describe.

The man then told Mr Davies: "Then I started to smell something strange, at first I thought it was like a cigarette smell.

"I was choking, and I thought I was going to die. I was crying and everything. I was passing out.

"I just wanted a policeman to start banging on the window and save me.

"I pushed her back with all my force and there was not a pretty girl on me but some haggard, disgusting old woman with some kind of awful skin condition.

"I just screamed and screamed and she just vanished."

Mr Davies said he believes the man could have been affected by sleep paralysis after nodding off.

Sleep paralysis is a condition where the victim feels wide awake but is unable to move a muscle.

It is often accompanied by delusions of being watched by a menacing presence.

"In the renaissance era they believed that the paralysis was caused by succubi, who would seduce people while they were asleep," Mr Davies said.

He is also the editor of Paranormal Chronicles, a website that looks into suspected sightings of ghosts and UFOs.

Mr Davies said: "Writing this book has taken its toll on me.

"This is just one account, and many of the others are far more graphic and quite traumatic to research.

"It is certainly the last time I will write a book about ghost sex." - Randy ghosts prowl Welsh roads to seduce drivers, paranormal author claims
