The Great Tunguska Explosion

On June 30, 1908 something exploded over Siberia with a force never before seen on earth, and perhaps, not since. Witnesses to the event said they say a pinpoint of light in the night sky get larger over a ten minute period before it exploded with such force a train conductor thought his train had been derailed from 800 miles away from the center of the explosion! The closest village of Nizhne-Karelinsk had roof damage on many homes and it was 200 miles away.

Whatever had exploded over Siberia had a shock wave that traversed the world twice. The weather on planet Earth was affected for the next year and Earth inhabitants were treated to glorious light shows at night. It was reported that you could even read the London Times at midnight without a lamp. Not since Krakatoa had the world seen anything such as this.

What is not commonly known, is that people of the world really did not know what the cause of this was. Russia was a very closed society and news of this explosion was not leaking out. It was not until the revolution that the full details emerged. In 1921 Russian scientist were doing work on meteorites and discovered the documents that they did not even know existed.

The photo on this post shows that the trees all fell in the same direction indicating a massive explosion. Many have speculated that this was an atomic bomb or a UFO and such.

MY TAKE: It could not have been a comet. They move way to slow. A meteor is more likely or a runaway asteroid. Events in the twentieth century have witnessed the impact on Jupiter of very large space debris proving that Earth could be vulnerable to such a thing.
No UFOs or secret atomic bombs would be needed. Our existence is very precarious.

Dozier School for Boys

This Florida panhandle town is the home of a mystery that has become quite a scandal in recent months. A small cemetery buried deep into the grounds of a now-defunct boys reform school dates back to the early 1900s. Rusting white steel crosses mark the graves of 31 unidentified former students, and approximately 81 boys in total are known to have died there. The location of the remaining bodies is yet unknown, and is the center of investigation even now.

Throughout its 113-year history, the Dozier School for Boys gained a notorious reputation for beatings, rapes, torture, and even killings perpetrated by staff on students. Despite periodic investigations, changes of leadership, and promises to improve, the allegations of cruelty and abuse continued until confirmed by separate investigations by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement in 2010 and the Civil Rights Division of the United States Department of Justice in 2011. These investigations prompted state authorities to finally cl…

Vermont's Loch Ness Monster

This monster isn’t in Loch Ness—it’s Champ, the creature thought to reside in Lake Champlain, the 490-square mile body of water on the border of New York, Vermont and Canada. Early reports of a monster in the lake first surfaced in the late 1800s but really hit their peak in the 1980s. Most evidence up to this point, and a famous photograph from 1977, have been discounted or questioned. But two cryptozoologists, or hobbyists who study unknown animals, on the hunt for the creature have made recordings of mysterious sounds that may constitute new evidence in favor of Champ’s existence.

“It was wild. I had seen Champ before, but getting that communication from this animal made the hair on the back of my neck stand up,” said Katy Elizabeth, a horseback riding instructor from Rhode Island who hunts for Champ in her free time with her boyfriend, fellow cryptozoologist Dennis Hall. “That feeling you get when you know a sound is made by a biological thing, that it’s not a man made sound—that…

Skunk Ape Captured on video

This video was shot by Tim Fasano in a major watershed area in Florida that feeds all the drinking water for Tampa. It happened because I was prepared to find something day by having the camera in my car. I saw a good area and possible movement, and went in. After about three hours, I recorded something of major interest.

The establishment of Bigfoot is going to ignore this, of course. They never liked me because I do what nobody will do. I commit to going into the woods on regular basis. I have been doing so for years.
