    Expedition X [Season 3, Episode 6]: Aliens Of The Deep

    Watched this interesting ("if factual") TV programme last night, was impressed in particular with the static video view of the night sky - which supposedly caught a UFO doing some crazy stuff above them. The main gist of this it was catching a supersonic craft flying above the waters off...

    MIA Plane Found? (Folsom Lake; California; 1965 Collision)

    hmmm airplane lost for decades... now found by mistake? https://www.insider.com/plane-crashed-1965-likely-found-bottom-of-california-lake-2021-6 It's kinda interesting that they didn't find it it in the initial search though. I mean, it's easy to say "we don't know where it crashed" when...

    A Funny Thing Happened On The Way Back From San Francisco (Fortean Family History)

    Route 1 offers breathtaking vistas of the ocean along the Central California Coast. Unfortunately, following a sea cliff exposes it to washing out and landslides nearly every winter. Come summer, construction and rubbernecking tourists slow traffic to a virtual standstill on the winding road...

    Dark Watchers (Vigilantes Oscuros): Ominous Figures; Santa Lucia Mountains (California)

    The phenomenon of the 'Dark Watchers' has a long history in the Santa Lucia Mountains of California (along the coast; south of Monterrey Bay). It's difficult to categorize them. They've been described as ephemeral giant figures seen on the horizon, as ominous figures encountered at close...

    The Keddie Murders

    Couldn't see an unsolved murders thread, so any thoughts on the Keddie Murders of 1981? Info: Wiki link Every so often new evidence arises, but it goes nowhere. Most of the suspects are dead now anyway. The witness saying he saw the killings in a dream is a weird part of it. Sometimes the...

    Vanishing Headlights, The Demon Flyer & Other Mojave Mysteries

    The Mojave desert stretches from California to Nevada about 100 miles east of Los Angeles. The Mojave bears a close resemblance to the UK's barren Moorlands,mostly shrubs and grass instead of cacti. It's often called the "High Desert" for its' 2000-4000 foot elevations. A man driving a...

    The Yuba County Five: 'An American Dyatlov Pass' Incident (1978)

    First, sorry if this has already been discussed somewhere- I searched and couldn't find anything. Second, there is hardly any information about this apart from the original Washington Post article and a long thread on Reddit. I'm not familiar with Reddit, and don't know how reliable it is but...

    Fresno Alien / Nightcrawler / Stick Figure

    The original Fresno Stick Alien footage is HERE. I seem to recall the "experts" on Sy Fy's Fact or Faked attempted to recreate the footage and failed. I'm sure someone here has an explanation for it. Seems the Fresno Stick Alien is still out there. On March 28th a retired Fresno couple...

    Need To Flee The Planet?

    Worried by SARS, George W, global warming, or just fed up? This could be your answer. At last someone's building a spacecraft that looks like it might come from a Gerry Anderson series. I want one. Full story at: http://www.newscientist.com/news/news.jsp?id=ns99993645

    The Winchester House

    I first read this in an Alan Moore Swamp Thing (where the rifle concerned was called Chesterfield, I think) but my brother claimed it was based on the Winchester Rifle. The story is that after Mr Winchester died, his widow kept seeing visions or ghosts of everyone who had been killed by a...

    The Patterson-Gimlin Bigfoot Film

    Despite much criticism and analysis, the Bigfoot Patterson film still seems to defy all scepticism. Does anyone out there think it is a real Bigfoot, especially with the analysis provided by the likes of Grover Krantz who believe it to be an unknown biped. Unfortunately, enigmas such as Bigfoot...

    Angel Hair (Stringy Material Falling From The Sky)

    Hmmmm... the last account there reminds me of "angel Hair". It'll be familiar to most as the long, thin hair-like strings that have been noted to fall from the sky during UFO activity. I remember once reading that one hypothesis for that as substances in the atmosphere forming crystal...
