During the Golden Age of UFO sightings, the time between 1940 and 1970, thousands of UFO reports were submitted to officials, many of which were held for decades before being released to the public. Included in these reports are many notable photographs purported to depict UFO's, or flying saucers as they were known at the time. Below is a collection of the most popular historic UFO photographs from as early as 1870. UFO over Bulawayo, Southern Rhodesia. December 29, 1953 This is widely believed to be a photo of the infamous UFO over Westall Scondary College in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, witnessed by more than 200 students and teachers as it descended into an open, grassy field. The only official explanation to date is "experimental craft". 1966 UFO in
The spooky photograph above was taken in 1900 in Belfast, Northern Ireland and shows a group of linen mill girls in their work clothes, toolsets tied about their waists. One girl, pictured on the second row, far right, appears stand-offish from the others. Identified as Ellen Donnelly, her granddaughter explained: "I don't really believe in ghosts – but there have been a few odd going-ons around this photo!" So what is so unusual about the photo? Look at the girl’s right shoulder. There's an unidentifiable disembodied ghostly hand gripping her shoulder! The family had long wondered about the freakish hand resting on the girl’s shoulder. Experts have said the photo is untouched but have been unable to identify the clearly visible hand-like thing resting on her shoulder. It doesn’t look
It’s believed that a photograph of Ireland's famous ghostly apparition, the Gray Lady, has been captured on film at last. The picture, which shows a ghostlike body hovering above a tree-lined path, was shot at the Dark Hedges in Stranocum, County Antrim, a location recently made famous as King’s Road in the popular HBO series “Game of Thrones”. Local photographer Gordon Watson captured the apparition on October 24, 2014 while shooting landscape photos of the Dark Hedges (an atmospheric, 300-year-old beech tree-lined path in Northern Ireland that approaches the famous Georgian mansion, Gracehill House). Kevin McAuley, a well-known local photographer, examined the original photo and insists that there’s no way the one-of-a-kind photo has been digitally enhanced. “It looks like a dress going towards the shape of a
Ghostly floating head of martyred Saint captured on video shot inside St. Peter’s Roman Catholic Church
Tourists are flocking to St. Peter’s Roman Catholic Church in Drogheda, Ireland after the spirit of Saint Oliver Plunkett was captured on video by a women filming the martyred Saint’s prison cell door, behind which he spent the last years of his life. The video appears to show a masked face, believed to be the ghost of the long-dead saint, suddenly peering through a hatch in the 15th century prison door. The woman told reporters: “I don’t really believe in ghosts or anything like that, so I was a bit spooked out to see it when I was checking my video when I got home. I was just filming the cell door with my camera phone, and didn’t notice anything unusual at the time, but when
A crew shooting a fishing show caught what appears to be a strange water creature on video a few days ago. Shooting in Loch Lough Foyle, Ireland, the crew was taping a segment for Fishing with David Lynch (Lynch can be seen in the video wearing a suit) when a huge creature swam between the fishing boat and the boat that was shooting the video. According to Lynch: “Was shooting in Lough Foyle when this thing went past us. It was massive. Really don't know what it was. There have been whales in the Lough before so maybe that's what it was but Matthew was closer than we were and says it was no whale. Looks like we have our own Loch Ness Monster?! We took
Jasker Power System In what some claim may be the greatest invention since the wheel, an Irish inventor's 23 years of effort may have finally paid off. The 58 year old electrical engineer claims to have invented an electromechanical device that runs on 12-volt batteries and is capable of replenishing its own power supply. Once powered up, it is capable of running indefinitely - or at least until its parts wear out. The device was demonstrated to a group of Reuters reporters in Ireland in early 2002. The device, about the size of a large dishwasher, was hooked up to three 100-watt light bulbs and ran continuously for over 10 minutes with voltage measurements taken at the beginning and end of the cycle.
