Watch Triple Lightning Strike 3 of Chicago's Tallest Buildings At Once

Photographer Craig Shimala was filming a time-lapse of a derecho over Chicago on the night of June 30th when a triple lightning strike touched down on three of the city's tallest buildings: Willis Tower, Trump Tower, and the John Hancock Building.

The whole time-lapse is worth a watch, but the triple strike can be seen at 0:36 and 0:46. Here's the still from the 36-second mark:

"This time [the photograph] was a still from a time-lapse," writes Shimala. (The still, from the 26-second mark, appears above.) He specifies "this time," because he captured another triple-strike – on the same trio of buildings – four years ago:

Dead grandmother's ghost 'took selfie to send family help message from other side' woman claims

Terrified Gina Mihai, 34, believes the spirit of her deceased grandma is reaching out asking her family to pray for her

This supposed ghost selfie 'taken by a dead grandmother' has Romanians spooked.
Petrified Gina Mihai, 34, claims the spirit of her deceased grandma is reaching out in a desperate message for help.
Locals have been packing out churches to pray for her after a fortune teller claimed she was being punished 'in the other life' for her sins.
Gina said: "When I switched the phone on I was horrified to see my dead grandmother's face.
"She had what looked like a snake around her neck, and the whole image looked as if it had been taken through a hole, like it was shot through a tear in the fabric that separates the living from the dead.
"I took it to a fortune teller who told me that my grandmother was sending me a message from the other side, the snake around her neck was a symbol of the fact that she was being punished in the other life for some sin.
"By contacting us she was telling us that if we were to pray for her, we would still be able to save her soul."
Now dozens of other families have joined them at churches across the town to pray for her grandmother.
Shock: The image appeared on Gina's phone
In Romania once a year there is a feast, the Service of Alms, in which Romanians travel to the local graveyard and hand over food as a gesture to the spirits in the afterlife.
Gina said: "My grandmother died three years ago and I haven't taken any food for her to the graveyard.
"I was making doughnuts at the time and didn't want to get the phone dirty so I put it in my pocket, and when I took it out there was the image on the phone.
"The fortune teller told me that was a mistake not to have paid tribute to her with an offering of food, and it was significant that she contacted me while I was cooking. I have taken doughnuts to the cemetery every day since then."
Florica Mihai, 45, another relative, said: "The village priest told me that we need to do 40 Days of Alms to make up for those that we missed and we are doing it now. We want to help her soul to be saved."

In Loja province, Southern Ecuador and Peru border, many strange relics have been uncovered. Bones and full skeletons very similar to those of humans but of incredible size. These artifacts have been watched over for many years by several guardians in the beautiful valleys of that Province.
By far the most famous and well known of these “guardians” was Father Carlos Miguel Vaca, who guarded until his death in 1999, several bones and fragments, unearthed from a site called “Changaiminas” which translated means “Gods cemetery.”
 Several fragments were redirected to the Smithsonian Institution of the United States of America, for people to study their density, age, weight etc. This was broadcast on a television program for Ecuador, which lasted two hours, led by renowned director Alfonso Espinosa De Los Monteros.
Now some pieces from that collection have been shown to the world by renowned UFO researcher Klaus Dona.
Several other important relics and fragments are known to be in private collections, by people who are not interested in sharing them, at least not with the public.
From the aforementioned fragmented skeleton, seven fragments were studied by different scientists and anatomists, and they have confirmed, that they are part of a human skeleton that was seven times the size of a modern human.
Quartz formations porocidades covering the surface of the bones, indicated that the relics were tens of thousands of years old.

Mysterious Ancient Coastal Complex at Chirije

There is a place in Ecuador that can only be reached when the tide goes out. It is the ancient coastal complex at Chirije. When the tide runs low one can take a sturdy vehicle between the water and cliffs over sand and rocks into this vast archaeology complex.Separated from the world by water, jungle, and time this little know site is vastly rich in artifacts from a nearly unknown and unstudied ancient civilization. But this was not always so. For hundreds of years in the remote past, indeed perhaps for over a thousand, Chirije was known by its trade goods over an expanse reaching at least as far north as Mexico and as far South as Chile. A distance that exceeds that of the Inca Empire at its height.
Yet this archaeological treasure trove remains mostly unstudied since a brief period in the 1950’s when Ecuadorian archaeologist Emilio Estrada discovered the site and declared it to be one of the most important sites on the Ecuadorian coast. The Louvre Museum of Paris and the Smithsonian Institution would come again in the mid 90’s to reaffirm the importance of the site. But water, sand, rugged terrain, and time have all served to isolate Chirije from investigation.
Few places in the New World offer such a rich deposit of artifacts. Tiahuanaco, in Bolivia, along the shores of Lake Titicaca comes to mind—but no other. Pottery shards at Chirije lie almost everywhere. Other remains of this ancient culture lie underneath and buried in the rich loose soil. Erosion along the water’s edge only serves to add to the rich cultural deposits as artifacts literally drop down from the cliffs edges onto the rocks below smashing into pieces are lost in the sand.

'Shadow entity' caught on night camera ?

A man who set up a camera to film his sleep paralysis managed to capture something unexpected.

Sleep paralysis, the phenomenon in which you enter a half-waking state during which you are unable to move, can be an unnerving experience at the best of times, but when coupled with the feeling that you are not alone or the appearance of someone in the room with you it can quickly change from a harmless curiosity to the stuff of nightmares.

This was exactly what happened to YouTube user Mike Pike who last week observed what he believed to be a dark shadow figure watching him from the foot of his bed during a sleep paralysis episode. Having described the experience as the most terrifying of his life, Pike decided to set up a camera in his room to film what was there in the event that the same thing happened again.

"I'm a rationalist and a very skeptical person with no previous interest in paranormal activity, but after doing some research it seemed like there was a possibility that this entity is real," he wrote.

Sure enough, after rewatching the footage he noticed that he had indeed caught something unusual on camera. From around the 30-second mark on the video below it is possible to see a vague shape rising up towards the ceiling above the bed having seemingly appeared out of nowhere.

"I have watched the footage over and over trying to figure out some logical explanation for what could have caused the image of what seems to be a ghost, but I haven't been able to come up with a solution," he wrote.

"I am really starting to believe that I captured the entity I saw during my paralysis on video. This terrifies me so much that I can no longer sleep in my room."

Astonishing Unusual Objects Found on Far Side of the Moon

American researcher Steve Wingate was the first person to bring world attention to the anomaly in the far side Lobachevsky Crater by posting the old Apollo 16 photograph and several new views from the recent Clementine mapping mission to the Lunascan Mailing List. Even more recently, eminent German geologist and science writer Dr. Johannes Fiebag confirmed Wingate's discovery of an "unusual and possibly artificial structure" on the mysterious far side of the moon as shown in the 25 year old NASA Apollo 16 orbital photograph, AS16/10075825.

Dr. Fiebag, highly-respected, is the author of two recent books: "Mars - Planet Des Lebens", Econ-Publisher, Düsseldorf 1996; and "Mission Pathfinder", (Econ Publisher, Düsseldorf 1997).

Below is the original NASA Apollo 16 photograph which we will now examine in extraordinary detail.

Upon examination of the photograph, it was apparent that both Steve Wingate and then Dr. Fiebag's claims about the Apollo 16 photograph of the Lobachevsky Crater merited immediate closer examination. The picture was sent to graphics analyst Liz Edwards at IWonder Productions for enhancement and further analysis. Her work quickly underscored the fact that there are indeed some bizarre anomalies in the photograph, in fact there are several.

(Ms. Edwards' most recently exposed what appears to be a tiny missile in a photograph of a New York sunset at the exact time of the TWA 800 tragedy.)

Ms. Edwards made it clear that her multi-stage "enhancement process takes the image to its most critical viewing size without distorting the objects in question." Below, is her first enhancement of the NASA Apollo 16 photograph...

This first enhancement (above) is remarkable in itself in that there are apparently four clearly strange and unusual 'objects' or anomalies in the Lobachevsky Crater.
  • Item "A" demonstrates a strange white rectangular shape along the ridge of the crater rim and includes an unusual shadow below and to its right.
  • Item "B" appears to be a spectacular 'spire' soaring perhaps hundreds of meters straight up from the lunar surface and standing next to what appears to be a rectangular shadowed hole or depression running from its base out to the right.
  • Item "C" smaller but odd, sits in the bottom of the small valley or ravine below the crater rim.
  • Item "D" is set apart from the other objects and projects an extraordinary and bright reflective surface.

According to a Government Agency, This UFO is Real...

The latest case CEFAA investigated --which has received a lot of attention from the Spanish-speaking media this week-- was a series of photographs taken during the mid of April of 2013 at the Collahuasi mine in the north of Chile, located 4,300 meters above sea level.
The images, taken by a digital Samsung camera model Kenox S860, show a silvery 'flattened disk' of approx. 5 to 10 meters in diameter at an altitude of around 600 meters, which was observed by several witnesses (35 technicians & mine workers) performing a series of aerial maneuvers --vertical & horizontal displacements, showing sometimes the disk as a lenticular object, other times as an ovoid-- for a span of 1 to 2 hours, denoting some sort of intelligent control or predetermined flight.
A meteorologist concluded the object could not have been a lenticular cloud, and after an expert analyzed the photographs using a series of filters, the official conclusion of the agency is that the object is a real UFO --which does NOT mean they're saying the disk is an interstellar alien ship; it simply means they object is not a conventional aeoronautical craft, nor a known meteorological event.
In this age of Photoshop & digital manipulation, photographic evidence is barely evidence of anything. Yet it is still comforting to know there are still researchers out there, committed to apply scientific rigor in the analysis of an image showing what very well may be a truly extraordinary phenomenon. Even more comforting, is knowing there are nations not willing to let the United States dictate them what is or isn't of significance to their national security; and if the USA wishes to retain their position as leaders of the world perhaps they should start by getting their head off the sand and acknowledge that, no matter how much they refuse to look up, the UFOs are not going anywhere.

Ancient Archaeological Mysteries That We May Never Solve

Our ancestors left a lot of traces in this world, and not all of them were ever meant to be understood by other cultures. Despite our best efforts, they remain mysteries to this day.

The Paracas Candelabra

The Paracas Candelabra measures about 180 meters (600 ft) across. Despite the close proximity to the Nazca Lines, this geoglyph was likely not built by the Nazca people. Ancient pottery found at the site dates to 200 B.C., which means that the Paracas culture is most likely responsible. But while we have some idea who built the candelabra and when, the question of why leaves archaeologists baffled.

The Uffington Whith Horse

The White Horse in Uffington, a 115-meter (374 ft) hill figure, was created by digging deep trenches filled with crushed chalk. This animal appears to be a horse, and similar depictions appear on ancient coins dated to the Bronze Age. Near the figure are burial mounds from the Neolithic period. These graves were reused up until the Saxon period, leading some to claim that the White Horse is not as old as previously thought.

The Liber Linteus Zagrabiensis

The Linen Book of Zagreb is the longest text written in the Etruscan language. The language had a huge impact on the world since it heavily influenced Latin, but nowadays, it is mostly lost. Only a few ancient documents feature it, so large chunks of the Liber Linteus are still untranslated to this day. From what can be gathered from the book, it appears to be a ritual calendar, although it was initially thought to detail funeral rituals.

White Shaman Rock

The ancient cultures of the Americas still hold many secrets, and one way to decode them is by studying rock paintings. Near the Pecos River in Texas’s Lower Pecos Canyon is one of the oldest and most significant of these paintings—the White Shaman. A 7-meter (24 ft) artwork dated to over 4,000 years ago, the White Shaman is thought to offer information regarding an ancient lost religion.

The Sajama Lines

Sajama has thousands, maybe even tens of thousands of different lines that range from 1–3 meters (3–10 ft) in width and can be up to 18 kilometers (11 mi) in length. The lines cover an area of almost 7,500 square meters (70,000 sq ft)—roughly 15 times larger than the famous Nazca Lines. Despite their giant scale, very little research has been done regarding the Sajama Lines. The true size of the network had been very difficult to gauge until recently, when satellite imagery became available.

The Tartaria Tablets

Most archaeologists used to agree that several regions developed writing independently between 3500 and 3100 B.C. The earliest examples we could find showed photo-writing from cultures such as the Sumerians in Mesopotamia. However, if the Tartaria tablets are genuine, then they predate the other discoveries by 2,000 years.

The Blythe Geoglyphs

The Blythe Intaglios are a collection of dozens of geoglyphs found in the Colorado Desert near Blythe, California. They show various representations of animals, geometric shapes, and giant humans, the largest depicting a 50-meter (170 ft) man. The true scope of the geoglyphs was unknown until 1932, when it was viewed from the air.

The Minaret of Jam

The most intriguing theory regarding the Minaret of Jam is that it might have belonged to the lost city of Firozkoh. Also known as the Turquoise Mountain, the city was the capital of the Ghorid Dynasty and one of the greatest cities in the world. But it was completely destroyed by Ogedei Khan, son of Genghis, and its location was forever lost.


Whistleblower Arthur Neumann and bases on Mars

Arthur Neumann’s verification of the existence of bases on Mars, and of having personally been to Mars, occurred at the end of Command Sgt. Major (USAF retired) Robert Dean’s presentation at the European Exopolitics Summit and can be seen beginning at 54 minutes into the presentation (below video).

During his presentation, Robert Dean showed satellite images of an apparent city under the surface of Mars, as well as an apparent base on the surface of Mars.

Futuretalk interview (below video), during which Mr. Neumann spoke about the details of his teleportation to Mars for a one-hour project meeting on Mars attended by Martian humanoids, was conducted by Bill Ryan and Kerry Cassidy of Project Camelot, with the participation of Robert Dean and Alfred Lambremont Webre.

Astounding Moon Footage Did NASA want you to see this?

The significance of the images has only recently been noticed.

As Apollo 8 orbited 70 miles above the lunar surface, with Earth in the background, it filmed the ground below.

At one point, a small, black object, tall and cylindrical, appears jutting from the moon. Just as the camera is about to pass by, the strange object clearly releases a jet-like cloud. It looks like a smokestack ejecting a puff of smoke. The cloud drifts to the right and then dissipates.

Though the black object appears small on the screen, it must be thousands of feet tall if the footage was taken from such a high altitude.

Alien skull in Baltic Sea?

A startling new video clip showing what appears to be an elongated skull lying on the ocean floor has been released by the Ocean Explorer team in the past few days.
The two minutes and 42 second clip was taken last year by one of the ROVs (Remotely Operated Vehicles) used by the team. The Ocean Modules V8 Sii ROV was being piloted remotely from the ship in an effort to explore the site when the team came across the bizarre discovery. Take a look at the video and let us know what you think, could it really be an extraterrestrial skull, or is this simply a natural rock formation at the bottom of the sea.

For so long have I not been able to tell anyone about this. So this feels good, I remember my heart pounding a bit faster the moment this showed up on the screen.’ – Jimmi Aasberg (OceanX Team)

The object was found lying beside the main 60 metre wide anomaly at a depth of 79 metres – it is thought to be only one of many curious finds that the team have made at the site – most of which are still under a contractual embargo by the TV company who financed the trip and will be revealed later this year when the 60 minute documentary is broadcast.
It is believed that no attempt was made to recover the object at the time as the ROV’s propulsion system kicks up a lot of silt from the bottom and this was severely hindering the divers visibility around the object. A new expedition in 2013 may try and salvage the object along with other objects and samples at the site.

Video: Did you see this UFO hovering over Bushey?

Jackie Noise posted a Youtube video of what she believes may have been a UFO hovering above the town.
She wrote: "I don’t know what these objects are. I am just reporting what I am seeing.
"Today we saw five objects.
"They were black and round and slightly flat, they seemed to be rotating. Sometimes they were stationary and other times they would move.

(Video) Man Claims To Have Captured 'Clear' Photo Of Bigfoot

Virginia man Randy O'Neal says he believes that Bigfoot exists after his father and friend took pictures of what he thinks could be the creature standing at a certain location along the Intracoastal Waterway.
O'Neal posted the pictures in a video to YouTube, including a lengthy story of his experience.
"Finally, a photo that is not blurry nor hidden behind a tree," O'Neal wrote. "A clear photo of Bigfoot standing out in the wide open. You be the judge."
In the video, O'Neal explains that for 25 years his family has discussed one previous encounter with Bigfoot, and that they had always wondered if it would return.
O'Neal explained that on a camping trip with his father and "Uncle Jap" as a teenager, the trio had been fishing and shooting beer cans when they decided to settle down near a creek for the night. They were about five miles from civilization on the Intracoastal Waterway.
When 15-year-old O'Neal and his family gathered around the fire, O'Neal reportedly saw a pair of red eyes observing them from the bushes, which apparently went on for 20 minutes before his father handed him a shotgun. 
"Shoot the damn thing!" O'Neal's father had said.
After being shot, the animal allegedly let out a series of "blood curling" screams, then ran through the woods and into the water. Not another sound was heard that night.
In the morning, the trio found that a path had been cleared through the woods as if a deer had run through it. 
Despite O'Neal's story, observers of the photos remain doubtful that Bigfoot actually made an appearance. Some have called the supposed creature nothing more than a tree stump.

Mystery of the Tayos Cave - Legendary Metal Library Found in Ecuador

In what maybe one of the biggest discoveries ever, a team of explorers is claiming that they have found the legendary golden library and other mysterious treasures in the Tayos Cave system in Ecuador.

The team announced that they accidentally found some hidden tunnels that were obviously dug out artificially sometime in the ancient past while inside one of the main chambers.  The team was able to follow one of these tunnels for approximately ½ mile and came upon a large room containing the golden library and various other treasures.

Below is a list of what the explorers claim to have found in this chamber:
1. A library with thousands of metal books.  The team was unable to specify what metal the books were made of but the look was similar to silver.  Each page had symbols and strange writing on them.
2. Individual plates with writing on them and strange symbols that looked to be made of gold.
3. At least several hundred statues of insects, animals and humans spread throughout the large chamber.
4. Lots of metal bars thought to be both gold and/or silver.  Also found were various children’s toys and jewelry items made from gold or silver.
5. One large sarcophagus containing one human skeleton decorated with jewels and golden jewelry.
6. The team also found at least three doors that could be more tombs but were sealed completely shut.
As of right now, the team has only announced their findings onto a radio show and no other announcements have been made so the jury is still out as too whether their claims are completely true.

The team did claim to have samples of at least one of the metal books, one golden plate and several small statues that they will be submitting to professional testing so hopefully this will give us answers shortly.
