TRIANGLE UAP Recorded Over Volcano

A large luminous object was captured on video as it ascended from the slopes of the Popocatépetl volcano and receded into outer space, generating a stir on social networks.

The images, shared on various digital platforms, show an incandescent object rising in the darkness of the night, with an upward trajectory that takes it away from the volcano. The shape and brightness of the object, along with its unusual origin, caused many users to identify it as an Unidentified Flying Object (UFO). 

However, the uncertainty soon dissipated. Various sources, including the Chilean Geoscientific Network, confirmed that the luminous object was nothing more than a space rocket launched from China. The rocket, identified as Long March-3B, took off from the Xichang Satellite Launch Center in Sichuan, China, at 9:50 p.m. (local time) on Wednesday, May 8, 2024, to place the Smart Skynet-1 01 satellite.

Skeletal remains with rods clamped across their necks, dirt in their mouths, or spears pinning down their body: These are just a few tactics that Europeans of the past used to ward off the resurrected dead—or zombies if you will.

Several archaeological sites have pointed to “revenant” graves across Europe, where there’s evidence that people were worried about the dead coming back, spanning 18th-century Polish vampires to Ancient Greek zombie burials.

A recent discovery in Oppin, Germany found the remains of a man who was pinned by a large stone “placed over the deceased’s bent legs,” according to the Saxony-Anhalt State Museum of Prehistory, which first broke news of the discovery. The museum suggests that this is an example of a revenant grave, as the rock was placed in such a deliberate way to prevent the corpse from rising.

Ufologist BRUCE MACCABEE Passes

Dr. Bruce Maccabee was a retired physicist who spent his working life at the U.S. Naval Weapons Center. He is best known outside his work environment for his research into the nature of UFOs including an in-depth examination in the Kenneth Arnold UFO sighting that sparked the public interest in flying saucers and flying discs. He used his training to examine the McMinnville UFO pictures, the New Zealand film, the Meier contact claims, the Gulf Breeze photos, and other sightings with a photographic component.

He worked with Dr. J. Allen Hynek, was active in the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON), and was a leader in the Fund for UFO Research (FUF0R).

He was sought out for his expertise and provided a briefing paper for John Gibbons, President Bill Clinton’s science advisor. He participated in the Smithsonian UFO debate in 1980 and appeared on numerous radio and television programs. Read more at Dr. Bruce Maccabee Passes at 82

EL CHUPACABRAS - ALIEN or SOMETHING ELSE? | Join Us For LIVE CHAT | Questions & Answers #Chupacabras

The legend of El Chupacabras (translated as 'the goat-suckers) began in about 1992, when Puerto Rican newspapers El Vocero and El Nuevo Dia began reporting the killings of many different types of animals, such as birds, horses, and as its name implies, goats. At the time it was known as El Vampiro de Moca since some of the first killings occurred in the small town of Moca. While at first it was suspected that the killings were done randomly by some members of a satanic cult, eventually these killings spread around the island, and many farms reported loss of animal life. The killings had one pattern in common: each of the animals found dead had two punctured holes around their necks.

Soon after the animal deaths in Puerto Rico, other animal deaths were reported in other countries, such as the Dominican Republic, Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, El Salvador, Panama, Peru, Brazil, the United States, and, most notably, Mexico.

Both in Puerto Rico and Mexico, El Chupacabra gained urban legend status. Chupacabra stories began to be released several times in American and Hispanic newscasts across the United States.

The chupacabra is generally treated as a product of mass hysteria, though the animal mutilations are real. Like many cases of such mutilations, however, it's been argued that they are often not as mysterious as they might first appear.

Descriptions of the physical appearance of each specimen can resemble descriptions of other specimens or differ from other descriptions. Although they have different appearances, El Chupacabras are typically 3 feet or taller, they are roughly humanoid in shape as they are bipedal with 2 arms and are described as otherworldly creatures.

So, are El Chupacabras an alien entity, or are they something else? Listen to the accounts and form your opinions.
