The Rotenburg Cannibal – Internet Killer

Armin Meiwes, a computer technician living in the German town of Rotenburg, was born December 1, 1961. He was described by neighbors as being “very childlike”, friendly, and a sensitive person. He was also called The Master Butcher and the Rotenburg Cannibal after he achieved international notoriety for killing and eating a voluntary victim whom he had found via an Internet forum dedicated to people who fantasized about cannibalism. Meiwes’s childhood was far from normal. He lived alone with his mother until she died. His mother kept a close eye on Meiwes accompanying him on dates and even on Army training excursions. Meiwes described his childhood as “lonely” and he longed for a brother as a companion. Meiwes began posting advertisements on The Cannibal Café website in

The Long Island Serial Killer (aka The Gilgo Beach Killer)

The Long Island Serial Killer (also known as the Gilgo Killer, the Long Island Ripper, and LISK) is a serial killer who is believed to have murdered at least eleven people in the Long Island area.  He targets prostitutes, who were often contacted via the online bulletin board Craigslist, and is believed to have been in operation for at least fifteen years.  The Long Island Serial Killer dumps the bodies of his victims along Ocean Parkway, a fifteen mile stretch of highway that traverses Jones Beach Island on Long Island, New York.  Located near the popular beach towns of Gilgo Beach and Oak Beach in Suffolk County as well as near Jones Beach State Park in Nassau County, the killer dumps his victims, unburied in thick brush, often only

Dead bodies on Mount Everest

  Dead bodies abound on Mount Everest It is estimated that over 200 people have died in their attempt to reach the summit of Mount Everest. The causes of their death vary as widely as the weather at Mount Everest’s peak. Climbers face the dangers of falling off the mountain, tripping into huge crevices, asphyxiation from low oxygen levels, avalanches and falling rocks, and weather that can unexpectedly change drastically in mere minutes. At the summit, winds can reach hurricane strength literally blowing the climber off the mountain. Oxygen levels leave the climbers gasping for breath while their oxygen deprived brains leave them unable to make rational decisions. Some climbers stop for a brief rest only to slowly drift into a deep sleep, never to wake up. All dangers

Belgium UFO Wave

Belgium UFO wave On November 29, 1989, Belgium citizens, including several large groups of people and three groups of police officers, reported seeing a large triangular shaped craft flying at low altitude over the Belgium countryside. The reported UAP (Unidentified Aerial Phenomena) was flat with bright lights underneath that changed colors (red, green, and yellow). The object flew low to the ground without making a sound. Cross checking the various reports revealed that the object travelled from the town of Liege towards the borders of Germany and the Netherlands. Before the night was over, the object would be sighted by over 1,500 people on the ground resulting in seventy different police reports and would trigger a military response from the Belgium military. The UFO sightings begin At 5:15

China’s Kowloon Walled City – the bizarre city of boxes, mazes, and dark alleys

Kowloon Walled City Up until 1994, there existed, just north of Kowloon Bay, a bizarre city in Hong Kong named Kowloon Walled City. Over time the veritable lawless (and unclaimed by any government) Kowloon Walled City, became a curious stack of cheaply constructed boxes through which ran a maze of dark alleys and exposed pipe and wiring and housed drug dealers and addicts, pimps and prostitutes, organized gangs, gambling dens, criminal headquarters, and private citizens all living together in a tangled mess of humanity. Only 6 ½ acres in size, it contained over 30,000 people giving it a population density of over 1 million people per square mile, all living on top of each other in cheaply constructed dwellings with no electrical or water supply, in

Area 51 – U.S. top secret facility and prominent UFO hub hides many secrets

About Area 51 Area 51, located at the corner of a Nevada nuclear test site, has long been rumored to be the home of some of the United States' most highly classified national security projects. Hundreds of people have seen and photographed odd objects around the base including flying triangles, saucer shaped craft, and flying objects that maneuver in ways conventional aircraft could not possibly move. It has also been rumored that the technologies developed here are not of earthly origins but rather reversed engineered from studies of crashed extraterrestrial spacecraft. Area 51, also known as Dreamland, The Ranch, The Box, Watertown Strip, and Groom Lake, is a 6 mile by 10 mile tract of desert land, located between two mountain ranges 120 miles northwest of Las

UFOs spotted over Pennsylvania town on Christmas Day

We received some interesting reports of UFOs seen over the town of Chester Springs, Pennsylvania on Christmas day.  MUFON recorded the event and noted that witnesses reported a black object with flashing lights.  Power outages accompanied the sighting.  One photo (see above) and reportedly two video clips were shot of the unknown object. One witness noted: “We took the kids out to ride their new Power Wheel and I noticed a black spot in the sky that wasn't doing much of anything - just hovering. I pointed it out to my husband and my mother and we couldn't figure out what it could be. After about a 1/2 hour, we went back inside. Every few minutes, wed peek outside to see if it was still there - and it was. Then

The 2009 Norwegian spiral anomaly – spiral-shaped UFO witnessed by thousands in Norway

It is not uncommon to see unusual lights in the skies of Norway.  The Hessdalen Lights have been reported in Norway since the 1800’s.  But in 2009, a light was spotted in the skies above Norway that made other glowing-light UFO sightings pale by comparison.  Called the “Norwegian spiral anomaly” or “Star Gate”, the UFO was visible to thousands of awe-struck Norwegians and photographed extensively, from Norway to Sweden.  The event occurred on December 9, 2009 and lasted from 2-3 minutes (some sources say it lasted up to 10 minutes).  It consisted of a blue beam of light that came from behind a mountain with a grayish spiral-shaped hue of light emanating from it. According to local news sources: “Witnesses across Norway, who first glimpsed the space

Washington UFO caught on CNN broadcast during President Obama inauguration

During the CNN broadcast of the President Obama inauguration (January 20, 2009), an interesting UFO can be seen if your eyes are keen enough.  Watch carefully, right after the segment shifts to the scene of the Washington Monument, you will notice an extraordinarily fast UFO shoot from the right side of the screen towards the left.  The object is very fast and hardly noticeable if you are not paying attention.  Once you spot it, you can easily see that there is indeed a very fast object shooting through the sky.  The CNN announcers briefly mentioned it later in the broadcast. It could be presumed to be an extremely fast drone, albeit potentially faster than any man-made aircraft we have yet to see, but for the fact that no sound was

Triangular-shaped UFO reports – Altered Dimensions explanation of reporting criteria

At Altered Dimensions, we often receive email asking why we have not reported on “such and such”.  Truth is, we almost certainly are aware of the report but in our opinion, do not feel it merits attention.  We try to ensure Altered Dimensions news items are truly paranormal, mysterious, and unexplainable in nature.  If we feel an object or event is explainable, or of course questionable (i.e. a likely hoax), we will normally not report it unless special circumstances warrant its attention. Triangular-shaped UFOs I typically do not report on triangular-shaped UFO sightings because quite honestly, I do not feel they are extraterrestrial in nature but rather are some form of military aircraft or drone.  There are hundreds of photographs and video of triangular-shaped aircraft and thousands
