Rare African Golden Cat caught on Video

African Golden Cat in its native land

The elusive, African Golden Cat, who's nocturnal ways have made it nearly impossible to photograph until now, was captured by Panthera, a group of conservationists who have made it their job to get the word out about endangered species.  This little guy (or girl) mainly preys on rodents and birds and was found, as its name suggests, in Africa.

China UFO Mystery Light August 20th 2011

Night of August 20th 2011

5.8 East Coast Earthquake (8/23/2011) and the strange sky 2 weeks ago to the day (8/9/2011)

Colorado & Virginia quakes just hours apart

With the enormous 5.9 earthquake that was felt across the US east coast today, its important to note that a Magnitude 5.3 quake was felt only hours before in Colorado.  The Colorado quake is just as rare as the East Coast quake. Colorado has not felt that kind of activity since 1967 when a magnitude 5.3 struck near Denver and another followed it in 1973 with a 5.7 in the northwest corner of the state.  Mining is blamed on those quakes. The Appalachian mountains are currently undergoing a large amount of surface mining. Could there be a correlation?  

August 9th, 2011 Ohio sunset
Just last week, I saw a strange show in the sky and made a blog entry concerning the unusual clouds, storms and colors that began on August 9th and continued thru into the 13th.  I wrote at the time that I believed that something was happening, that it was a kind of warning, but I did not know what to make of it.  I now think that the sky was alive with what you see in the video below, 'earthquake lights'.  These were recorded in China only 30 minutes before a massive 8.0 quake struck Sichuan ChinaI'm not saying every-time you see a beautiful sunset, that you should fear for your life, but the sunset on August 9th that I saw in Ohio was not your usual sunset.


Hydrogen makes a Sound - Listen

The sound has been pitched down, but this is the sound of hydrogen gas, (as read from the light waves). It's like a Theremin from a 1950's scifi movie.

Strange Skies of Eastern US Sunset - August 9th thru the 13th, 2011

August 9th, 2011 Columbus Ohio
August 9th, 2011 Mount Gilead Ohio

On August 9th 2011, we saw the strangest sunset I have ever seen.  We drove near a field. A cloud was on the ground! We stopped & listened.  Lightning and thunder flashed in the distance. No Tornado took place, thankfully, but the cloud on the ground meant that conditions were ripe.  Unfortunately, we did not have a camera that evening. But the sun was very orange, hazy reddish, apocalyptic.  We were in awe and I don't mind saying, a little frightened.  It was like someone had dropped a nuke or something.     

My friends on social networks posted numerous beautiful shots of the strange pink, orange, green, yellow sky.  Unfortunately, I have not found a shot of the sun that was so unreal.

Earlier that day there had been the largest solar flare in 4 years.  However, I believe that they are suppose to reach the earth with in days, not hours.

My scanning of videos on Youtube has turned up videos that were made between August 10 thru the 13.   

While we drove home and looked at the awesome display, I wondered what the ancient native Americans would have thought. A warning? 

This was the sunrise in NY the morning of August 9th. This is kind of what our sunset looked like that evening, only much more red and not grey but bright yellow clouds around it.

NASA says Comet Elenin will not kill us - then issues a Midwest Meteorite Alert due to Fireballs over OHIO & CANADA

Elenin from NASA Stereo spacecraft Aug 6th 2011

We recently had the very harmless, and very beautiful Perseid meteor shower on August 12th.  Now NASA is saying that a meteor was tracked north of Gustavus Ohio and fragments could be east of Cleveland, and in Cananda a bright fireball streaked over southern Ontario. 

There has also been a lot of buzz on the net about comet Elenin heading toward earth. Some far-out theories suggest that it will end all life as we know it. Whatever you may think, NASA found it necessary to calm nerves this week to calm anyone's anxiety about a killer rock from space, stating that; the comet will not impact earth and is not large enough to destroy all life on the planet.  Comet Elenin wont's kill us, says NASA  Also more here

Either way you look at it, it's a busy time in space near our planet.

Ohio residents should be on the lookout for potential small meteorites that may have been created by a bright fireball that streaked over southern Ontario, Canada, last week, NASA said.

The fireball was detected by all-sky cameras from the Southern Ontario Meteor Network at 1:22 a.m. EDT (0522 GMT) on Aug. 8.

"It was picked up over Lake Erie and proceeded south-southeast over Ohio," said Bill Cooke, head of NASA's Meteoroid Environments Office at the Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Ala.

The meteor was last tracked north of Gustavus, Ohio, and the potential impact zone for meteorite fragments is a region east of Cleveland, Cooke told SPACE.com.

Ex-Astronaut Story Musgrave to speak at UFO Symposium: Aliens are not coming here, but something is out there

Ex-Astronaut Story Musgrave to speak at UFO Symposium: Aliens are not coming here, but something is out there

Former Astronaut Story Musgrave will speak at this years 42nd MUFON (Mutual UFO Network) Symposium in Irvine California.  He will discuss his belief that E.T.s are out there, but they're just not coming here.

The man who flew six space shuttle missions and helped to design the suits made for space walks, said he has looked into the claims of supposed government cover-ups concerning alien visitation to our planet, but he personally could not find any proof.

"I've been as deep in the military as you can go. I was Marine Corps and Air Force and spent all this time with the government - I was on two classified department of defense missions, which got me as deep in the bowels of the military and the intelligence community as you can go," he told the Huffington Post.

"I found no conspiracy in terms of covering up information about extraterrestrial visits. I simply didn't find it!"

He did however add this to his comments; "I feel that they're everywhere out there and they're doing interstellar travel - we'll think differently about ourselves once we accept that."

Musgraves comments are puzzling, considering that in the video below, made over 10 years ago, and in other well documented statements, he has publicly asserted that he saw something like a snake outside the shuttles windows. Though this is not an engineered alien craft, it is something like an ocean life-form in space.

More Snow On The Way For New Zealand

Irish Weather On-Line By Fergal Tierney - Mon Aug 15, 9:56 am

A new blast of cold weather gripped New Zealand over the weekend as the coldest winter in many years continued to affect large swathes of the country. Snow is currently falling in the South Island and in southern parts of the North Island too, with the northern city of Auckland seeing its first snow since 1939. Sunday saw Wellington’s greatest snowfall for 30 years.

July 22 – 25th was previously the coldest snap since 1995, with snowfall causing disruption across the South Island and some parts of the North Island. Today’s snowfall been more widespread, however, and snow was reported down to sea level in the city of Wellington and other parts of the North Island. The New Zealand Met Serviceis predicting falls of 20 – 35 cm above 300 m in the Wellington area, with lesser falls continuing at lower levels.

Irish film-maker Ro Tierney shot the stunned Wellington residents’ reaction to the snow, with some of them having never witnessed it before.

New Zealand blizzards 'heaviest in 50 years'

Wellington and Auckland blanketed by once-in-a-lifetime weather

Guardian.co.uk, Monday 15 August 2011 19.42 BST

Blizzards in New Zealand have grounded flights, closed roads and shut off power in what forecasters are describing as once-in-a-lifetime conditions.

The cities of Wellington and Auckland saw their first snow for decades after an Antarctic blast moved north from South Island at the weekend, with the cold snap predicted to continue until Wednesday.

MetService head forecaster, Peter Kreft, told the New Zealand Press Association: "It's a once in many decades event. We are probably looking at something like – in terms of extent and severity – maybe 50 years," he said.

Services across the country were disrupted on Monday, with electricity cut to thousands of homes in Wellington and north of Auckland. Schools, universities and courts were closed across much of the lower South Island.

Flights and mail delivery had to be cancelled as well.Police warned that the snow would freeze overnight and create unsafe driving conditions.

More UFOs over Cottered?

By Ciaran Gold

Travel broadcaster Joanne Heart 
A NATIONAL radio travel broadcaster has come forward saying she saw something inexplicable in the sky in Cottered the day after a BBC reporter spotted an object.
Last Thursday (August 4) the day after sports reporter Mike Sewell told Radio Five Live listeners about his encounter, Heart Radio’s Joanne Webb, who lives outside Cottered, told her story on presenter Jamie Theakson's breakfast show.

Describing an incident that happened one morning at 4am on her way to work, the 35-year-old said: "A few weeks ago I saw this ball of light, it was bright white and until recently I thought it was a shooting star.

"But it was so low it was like someone fired a firework completely horizontally in front of my car and then it just disappeared."

Lost Thunderbird Photo Found? You have to see this!

Thunderbird / Pterodactyl  photo that emerged in 2011

This latest find, unfortunately with no information attached to it, if real, is the best evidence of the famed Thunderbird of Native American legend. The beak looks like it's adapted for fishing, like a crane, and the chest shows feathers. In my humble opinion, this does not look Photoshopped. By the quality of film and the style of dress, I'm guessing this is from the 1950's or early 60's. 

From the Cryptomundo website.

"The appearances are here and here, but they give no info on the actual source."

July 4th UFO Seaford Long Island, 2011

Long Island NY UFOs, July 4th 2011 

On the comment section of the July 4th New York Long Island UFOs - Video - Multiple Witnesses See Same Lights I recieved the following anonymous report:

I saw 3 of them on the south shore of Seaford Long Island, South of Levittown where Maureen saw the lights. These were also aligned but they were 3 yellowish lights. I pointed it out to my two friends, we were in awe. Kind of bright not blinking, not moving, no noise, nothing, just still. We agreed it wasn't a plane, helicopter, or balloon because they were not flashing or moving very still at first until one by one they started moving. One after the other they came in our general direction still high in the sky and one after another vanished.
This report did not come with photos, video or the date of the sighting, but since it was on the July 4th Long Island post, I assume that is the date. 

Thanks to the above witness for their report.

The witness stated:  "It was in the sky for 2 hours while I watched. I am not sure of the total time. It made no sound and just went from left to right and back and changed colors. At one point it put a light on the ground like a helicopter at 3 different times, but this was before I was filming."

This is not a Chinese lantern. This is something Unidentified.

Ohio UFO: family reports odd object hovering under street lamp - Sighted July 30 2011

Roger Marsh, UFO Examiner
August 5, 2011

An Ohio couple and their two sons report watching something hovering just under their street light that "looked like a bare cut metal object the size of a foot wood ruler" that moved back and forth and at times "looked distorted" as it became "thinner or wider," according to August 5, 2011, testimony from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.

The father went outside and first noticed the object.

"I thought it was a bat eating insects," the father stated. "The flight was odd and shape too big. I got my son to come outside and look. He went toward object and it went toward him and lowered down toward him."
The father asked one of his sons to come outside and look at the object. When the son moved toward the object, the object seemed to react by moving toward the son. But when the son backed away from it, the object seemed to go back to what it was doing. But when the father moved toward the object, "It came toward me and above me going up and down."

When they shined a flashlight on the object, it moved back and forth fast.

Last Surviving Witness of Lincoln Assassination, Appears On Television In 1956 (VIDEO)

Samuel J. Seymour was 5 years old when he was at Ford's Theater in 1865

HUFFINGTON POST - Thanks to YouTube, this gem in American history has been preserved.

In February 1956, two months before his death, 96-year-old Samuel J. Seymour appeared on the CBS television show "I've Got A Secret." His secret: he witnessed Abraham Lincoln's assassination when he was five years old.

Sure enough, Seymour has been widely recognized as the last surviving person in America who had been present at Ford's Theatre the night of Lincoln's assassination on April 14, 1865.

According to the Washington Times, Seymour attended the Ford's Theatre performance as a young boy with family friends. He was told upon arriving in Washington, “Sammy, you and I and Sarah are going to a play - a real play. And President Abraham Lincoln will be there."

Seymour's recollection of the event includes a shot ringing out, someone in the President's box screaming and Lincoln slumping forward in his seat. He also caught a glimpse of John Wilkes Booth jumping from the box to the stage.

A Maryland native who later lived in Arlington, Seymour died on April 12, 1956, two days before the anniversary of Lincoln's death.
