Different Alien Races on Earth

Different Alien Races on Earth

 

All through the last century, people came forward with reports involving incidents of ‘beings’ from other planets. UFO activity, Men in Black and even alien abductions – it all kinda snowballed through the 1900’s.

In this article we will be taking a look at the different alien races on Earth that have been mentioned in these reports over the years. Each has their own apparent agenda and may or may not be in collusion with another race…

 


Extraterrestrial Little People


Extraterrestrial Little People

 

Many ufologists believe that the Little People race of ET have been spotted as far back as the 18th century – reports of fairies or sprites seem to back them up. Strangely, they are not often spotted these days, and for some reason regular sightings of them have died out.

The few modern day reports linked to these extraterrestrials seem to be clustered within the Indo-China regions.

They are often reported as being no taller than two foot in height and are very human in their appearance. They are frequently seen in bright tunics or human-like uniforms.

These tiny little alien visitors are well known for being highly inquisitive and for some reason have a fascination with human timepieces. They are not really dangerous in any way, but they do like to play tricks (or test) humans.

 


Goblin Aliens


Goblin Aliens

 

The Goblin Alien race are slightly taller than the Little People, but they do not really have any sort of human characteristics. They appear with pointed ears, unusual skin tones, and sharp pointed teeth.

In South America they have been described as having extremely hairy bodies, but in Europe they are often reported as smooth skinned…and are considered ‘Trolls’.

There was a large spike in Goblin sightings during the 1950’s, but these sightings seemed to die out nearly completely by the end of the 60’s. They were frequently spotted in urban woodland areas.

They are not considered aggressive in any way.

 


Humanoid Aliens


Humanoid Aliens

 

Humanoid Aliens have many, many, different names, depending on the group of ufologists you talk to. For the sake of this article – we are just going to refer to them as ‘Humanoid’. Traditionally, they have blue eyes and blond hair with extremely striking, or even handsome features.

Humanoid Aliens are the only race where both male and female versions are often spotted. They apparently have paranormal powers which allow them to bypass any form of security and enter any home undetected.

They are also well known for alien abductions, but they are not reported to be mean captors – quite the opposite. They apparently try their best to put the abductee at ease, and even go as far as discussing environmental issues with them.

 


The Greys Race of Alien


The Greys Race of Alien

 

Probably the most well-known race of alien to have visited our planet – four foot tall with large heads and large dark almond shaped eyes.

Most reports claim that these beings don’t really have any ears or a nose, and are spindly in build. Their mouths are said to be nothing more than a lip-less slit near a pointed chin area of the head. Their skin is a greyish colour that resembles a parchment paper pattern.

They are a gender-less race that are by far the most sinister of all alien species. They are well known for abducting people at an alarming rate and even operating on these abductees.

They show no compassion or emotion.

 


The Nordic Alien Race


The Nordic Alien Race

 

Some ufologists put the Nordic race in the same category as the Humanoid aliens – they certainly look very similar!

The main difference between the two is height, with Nordic aliens being a lot taller than the humanoid versions (some reports have them as tall as seven foot!). Again, they have blue eyes and blond hair but look very Scandinavian in terms of facial features.

A lot of people that have encountered Nordic aliens claim that they are so beautiful, they have some kind of hold over you. They are not aggressive in any way, and more often than not enter in discussions with us humans.

They are known to sometimes show us the past, and then the future – trying their best to mend our dark ways and change our direction. They ALWAYS talk down about the Grey aliens, and claim that all races should stay away from them.

The Nuremberg 1561 UFO Battle

The Nuremberg 1561 UFO Battle

In this article we will be covering the Nuremberg 1561 UFO battle that was depicted in a wood carving by a early German journalist named Hanns Glaser. Does his controversial woodcut show an actual UFO battle that has courted controversy and debate for nearly 500 years?

Let’s take a closer look…


The Nuremberg Gazette

Hanns Glaser was what is now referred to as an ‘early journalist’ in Germany. Instead of writing about the events he witnessed – he instead opted to carve the accounts out as an illustration in woodcuts.

It is thought that the Nuremberg Gazette used this particular wood carving, along with eye witness accounts, to come up with this article back in 1561…

ufo battle over nuremberg germany 1561

As you can imagine – people were scared.

These days we are all fully aware of the topic of UFOs, and the conspiracies that surround them. But back then, in the 1560’s, people had no reference to what they saw…or what they read.


What Did They Witness?

Well, the most popular explanation is the simplest one – they all witnessed a UFO fight between two alien species above Nuremberg. As you can imagine – this is the theory most ufologists cling onto (and with good reason!).

But many conspiracy theorists believe that the locals that day actually witnessed aircraft in their skies, fighting out a battle scene from the Second World War.

But how could this be?

Well, they believe that a wormhole, or time slip, caused a Allied and Nazi battle in the skies from 1940’s Nuremberg to suddenly appear back in the 1560’s. Somehow a time-travel paradox caused this war event to turn up in the skies four centuries before it actually happened!

Experts are near enough 99.9% sure that this was not a hoax – since the descriptions were so vivid.

nuremberg germany ufo


The Second Battle

A UFO battle popping up in 1560’s German skies is mad enough…but strangely enough another similar recorded event took place in the skies of the Swiss city of Basel just five years after the Nuremberg UFO incident. According to the written records of this encounter, it lasted considerably longer than the Nuremberg sightings.

This Swiss incident took place on the 7th of August, 1566, in the early hours of the morning. Eye witnesses reported seeing strange black balls dart around the skies at astonishing speeds. They seemed to be taking one another out, by just dive bombing and colliding.

So what do you think?

Did the residents of two European cities in the 1560’s actually manage to somehow witness a alien war in the skies above their cities?

Or were they actually watching Second World War battles that were yet to take place?

Lady Lovibond – The Ghost Ship Mystery

Lady Lovibond – The Ghost Ship Mystery

In this article we will be taking a closer look at the strange paranormal case of the ‘ghost ship’ named Lady Lovibond. The triple-masted schooner ended up being run aground on the shifting sands at Goodwin due to feelings of love and jealousy…

But apparently, this was not it’s last voyage…


The Valentine’s Day Voyage

Captain Simon Reed arranged a trip on the Lady Lovibond in 1748 as a honeymoon gift for his new wife, a beautiful lady named Annetta. The trip was due to travel along the River Thames towards the open sea towards the sunnier climes of Portugal.

The first evening of the voyage was pretty much a full on party, with people drinking and and having fun on all levels of the ship.

Everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves and getting drunk…except for one man named John Rivers


John Rivers

John had actually served as best man at the Captain and Annetta’s wedding, and was the first mate aboard the Lady Lovibond. Rivers was apparently secretly in love with Annetta, and jealously had slowly turned into fury when he realised he could not have her.

Six miles off the Deal coast, not far from the Straits of Dover, is a geological feature known as the Goodwin Sands. This feature is known to have claimed numerous sea vessels over the centuries.

John Rivers had basically cracked – his love struck emotions turned murderous, and he decided to steer the ship into the Goodwin Sands.

The Ghost Ship


The Ghost Ship

Five decades on to the day of the Lady Lovibond tragedy, the skipper of another vessel, the Edenbridge, had a strange encounter with a VERY similar ship.

The captain’s name was James Westlake, and his log tells us that his ship almost collided with another vessel with a trio of masts. Apparently the schooner came so close to the Edenbridge that the captain could actually hear the celebrations of a party taking place on board.

On the 13th February and fifty years after this sighting there was another. Locals living near the Goodwin Sands noticed a ship going out of control and heading straight into the infamous Sands.

Similar reports were made in 1898 of an identical incident.

Rescue missions attended both of these strange incidents, but on both occasions, no wreckage was found!

The final report to be filed was made in 1948 by a Captain Bull Prestwick. He bumped into the ‘ghost ship’ on the seas and at first thought it was a real vessel. He did however note, that the ship gave off a strange eerie green glow.

In 1998 a load of sea vessels headed out in the hope that they would catch a glimpse of the ghost of Lady Lovibond…but for some reason it did not show up. Maybe the Lady Lovibond has finally made peace with it’s history?

Famous People Who Believe in Aliens

Famous People Who Believe in Aliens

In this article we will be covering a handful of famous people who believe in aliens. Are we alone in the universe?

These celebrities believe that we are not…


Winston Churchill

The UK’s larger than life Prime Minister, who took the country through the darkest hours of the Second World War.

Did you know that in 1939, Churchill actually wrote a piece of work in which he confronted the idea of alien civilizations?

Winston Churchill

Here’s what he had to say on the matter…

“I, for one, am not so immensely impressed by the success we are making of our civilization here that I am prepared to think we are the only spot in this immense universe which contains living, thinking creatures,” he wrote in the newly uncovered essay, “or that we are the highest type of mental and physical development which has ever appeared in the vast compass of space and time.”

This rare piece of work was apparently only recently uncovered, by a nature journal in February 2017.


Are Aliens Keeping Up With The Kardashians?

Okay, not really going to give this one so much credit…but I thought it was worth mentioning anyway!

Are Aliens Keeping Up With The Kardashians?

Khloe Kardashian posted a tweet back in 2015 where she claimed that both her and her sister (Kendall) were actually witnessing a UFO encounter. The U.S. Navy later said the unusual lights were part of a pre-planned missile test, Kardashian stuck to her guns (good for her!).

Ever since she has apparently been a die hard believer in life visiting us from other planets!


The Hillary Clinton Review Request

Good old Hillary…turns out she’s got a bit of an interest in the paranormal…and if she had got into office, she would have pursued it!

The Hillary Clinton Review Request

In 2016, during her bid to secure the Democratic nomination for president, Hillary decided to attend an offer from the Jimmy Kimmel Live radio show. When she was on the show she declared that she wanted to review files about UFOs and the mysterious Area 51 site in Nevada and make them public.


Ariana Grande

Ariana Grande has had no problem with being as vocal as possible about her beliefs linked to life on other planets. In a 2013 interview she proudly proclaimed that:

“We’d be so stupid to believe we are the only people here.”

Ariana Grande

I take it she meant the universe…not the planet Earth…or did she???

Anyway, people close to the pop act back up the fact that she is obsessed with UFOs and alien evidence.


Ridley Scott

That’s right…The man that brought you the immortal Alien movie from 1979.

While promoting his spin off to the original film, Alien: Covenant, Scott warned that hundreds of alien species are “out there” and cautioned that humans likely won’t fare well if these cosmic interlopers ever decide to pay a visit to Earth.

Ridley Scott

He never really explained what was behind these views/opinions of his…but it’s interesting that he decided to go public with them!


The Return of Dana Scully!

Gillian Anderson is best known for playing FBI Special Agent Dana Scully on the monster TV hit The X Files. In an interview with The Guardian newspaper in 2012, she admitted that to think we were the only lifeforms out there would be stupid.

The Return of Dana Scully!

She then went on to say that “That doesn’t necessarily mean that there are aliens, but there could be. If we’re talking about an advancement of technology, that they’d be potentially further along than us is as conceivable as their existence. So I wouldn’t rule it out.”

Mulder would be so proud…

Max Headroom Broadcast Signal Intrusion

Max Headroom Broadcast Signal Intrusion

Article By Site Contributor Frank Statler

The Max Headroom broadcast signal intrusion occurred on November 22, 1987 on two Chicago television stations. The two stations were WGN-TV channel 9 and WTTW channel 11.


The First Interruption

The first on air interruption was on WGN-TV channel 9 during the 9 0’clock news. It was in the middle of the nightly sportscast when suddenly the television screens of hundreds of thousands of Chicago-land viewers became covered with static.

Then it went black for about 15 seconds and then abruptly ,without out warning, the television character named “Max Headroom” appeared on the screen. The strange figure hopped around for a little bit but did not actually do anything. Little did viewers know that this was just the appetizer for a wild main course that would play out later that night.


More Interruptions…

Around 11:15pm that same night another television program, Dr. Who on station WTTW in Chicago, was interrupted by a similar signal intrusion. The show was interrupted by television static, after which an unidentified man wearing a Max Headroom mask and sunglasses appeared, saying “That does it. He’s a fricking nerd.”

The intruder was speaking about the sportscaster “Chuck Swirsky” whom he said he was “better than”, going on to call Swirsky a “fricking liberal”. The man started to moan, scream and laugh. He continued to bellow foolishly and utter various random phrases. He advised the viewers to “Catch the wave”. Which was the slogan of a soda product called new coke.

All of this while holding a can of Pepsi in his hands (The character known as Max Headroom was promoting New Coke at the time). After holding the soda can up to the camera he tossed it to one side.

More Interruptions

He then held up a gardening glove and said, “My brother is wearing the other one.” After putting the glove on, he continued, “But it’s dirty! It’s like you got bloodstains on it!” He then removed the glove and threw it away in disgust. Then the man was shown with his trousers around his ankles and his buttocks exposed.

An unidentified accomplice wearing a french maid costume then told him to “bend over, bitch.” At this point the man on the television was having his buttocks whipped with a fly swatter and was crying out in mimicked pain.

The transmission then blacked out for a few seconds before resuming the Doctor Who episode in progress; the hijack lasted for about 90 seconds.


Max Headroom Broadcast Signal Intrusion

The most amazing thing about this strange story is that even 30+ years later the authorities have never even come close to finding the electronics genius that pulled this hilarious stunt. I personally feel that we will not find out who this outlaw is until their death. Then again maybe we will never find out.

The Webdriver Torso YouTube Mystery

The Webdriver Torso YouTube Mystery

 

I first covered the Webdriver Torso YouTube videos in an article for the parent website to this site, about three years ago now.

It’s an extremely strange subject that I occasionally see popping up yet again on certain Mysteries or Conspiracies forums – I thought it was about time that I included the incident here on this site.

See what you think…


Webdriver Torso Explained

The confusing mystery of the Webdriver Torso videos started on the 23rd of September, 2013, shortly before 3pm, when a video (11 seconds long) was uploaded to YouTube.

The video displayed one red rectangle and one blue rectangle that moved around the screen in a random fashion, with no real purpose. Some sort of basic slideshow software was used to create the video, and there were 9 slides in total used.

There was a strange sine wave soundtrack running behind the video that was rather unpleasant to listen to.


A Few Hours Later…

Moving on a few hours, and another strange video turned up on YouTube.

This video was near enough identical to the first video…then another video appeared…and another…and another!

This strange frantic uploading continued for just under two whole years – leaving over 33,000 strange rectangle videos on the social platform.

There was no real pattern or rest cycle to this uploading – the videos appeared at all hours, night and day.

Webdriver Torso Explained


France?

One of the videos uploaded to the tube contained three characters from a cartoon called Aqua Teen Hunger Force ( Frylock, Meatwad and Master Shake ). The characters were in a scene where they seemed to be failing at some sort of social quiz.

This unique video was not shown to the whole world – for some reason you could only get it in France and you needed a French credit card to pay for the access.

Another one of the videos included a light show near some sort of tower. Many conspiracy theorists believe that this light show was the New Years Eve celebrations around the Eiffel Tower. Yet another link to France.

This video also came with a message left in it’s comment section by the apparent channel owner. It read: “Matei is highly intelligent”.


The Webdriver Torso YouTube Mystery

The final video which seemed to stand out from the crowd was made up of rectangles with 80’s singer Rick Astley placed inside each one. Fans of the singer insist that all the images were taken from the video for the song Never Gonna Give You Up.

Rick Astley Webdriver

An Italian blogger known as Soggetto Ventuno decided to turn conspiracy theorist and started to look into the subject. After a few months he insisted that there were many other channels like this popping up on YouTube…but as soon as he discovered them they disappeared!

His investigation finally brought him to a man named Johannes Leitner who used to be an employee of Google. Apparently this Leitner dude used to work with a man named Matei Gruber – coincidence?

The truth of the matter is nobody really knows the reasoning behind these videos…and I doubt they ever will.

Many conspiracy theorists come forward with unique theories…but none of them stick in the end.

The Hudson Valley UFO Incident

The Hudson Valley UFO Incident

In this article we will be covering the Hudson Valley UFO incident from December the 31st, 1981, which started with a retired policeman chilling out on his porch at night…


On The Porch

The policeman was sitting out on his porch just before midnight, getting some fresh air and enjoying the night sky…when suddenly he noticed a strange array of lights off to the south.

The lights travelled slowly towards his house and as they got nearer he noticed that they were selectively coloured as red, green and white. He realised that these lights probably indicated that he was looking at a plane…but it was flying awfully close to the ground.

As the lights got even closer, he realised that they were travelling too slow to be a plane, and whatever was in the sky was making no noise whatsoever – no rumble of thrust or engines.

As the lights passed over him he realised that a V-shaped fuselage was holding them together. The strange craft just passed silently over him, and carried on with it’s journey.

UFO On The Porch


The Reports

The ‘policeman’s report’ was the first of many – numerous others came forward to claim they had seen the same craft in the sky.

On March 261983, the Westchester-Rockland Daily Item released a front page story covering all of the UFO reports, and expert ufologists from all over the world started to pick up on the case, and offer their opinions.

One of these experts was named Dr. J. Allen Hynek, and he set up a specialised group and a hotline for people to come forward and give information on their experiences with the UFO.

The hotline eventually recorded over 300 witness statements that all confirmed that the craft was V-shaped.

On the night of March 24, 1983, the city of Yorktown also came alive with reports of this strange UFO activity. The local police stations had a terrible time trying to keep up with all the panicked reports they were receiving.

One of the main roads in the area was completely filled up with stalled cars, that refused to move as a UFO passed over the area.

There were over 5,000 Hudson Valley UFO sightings from the period of 1982 through 1986.

The UFO Reports


The Hudson Valley UFO Incident

The UFO from these sightings was always seen at night – none of the reports came from daylight hours. Also, many of the people that witnessed the craft pass over claimed that it was not one vessel, but more like a dozen smaller vessels making up one huge area in the sky.

There were also further reports that claimed that the ‘vessel’ slowed down when over bodies of water, then used some kind of red beam to scan the water’s surface – what were they looking for?

There were also a handful of reports insisting that the UFO took special notice of the Indian Point Nuclear Plant.

The Black Knight Satellite Conspiracy

The Black Knight Satellite Conspiracy

In this article we will be taking a closer look at the famous Black Knight satellite conspiracy that has been attracting media attention since 1960. Is this satellite nothing more than a Russian attempt at signal jamming or spying?

Or is there something more sinister behind it?

Let’s take a closer look…


Did Tesla Discover the Signal?


Many conspiracy theorists firmly believe that Tesla was the first person to stumble across the strange space signal, back in 1899. At the time he had just developed a high-voltage, radio transmission setup.

Tesla claimed that the signal he discovered was clearly repeated periodically and had some sort of order to it’s broadcast.

He spent a few weeks studying this signal in detail and came to the conclusion that it was a message from a extraterrestrial group.

Tesla claimed that his in-depth studies show that the signal was coming from the planet of Mars…but this claim was quickly rubbished…by his own studies…when he came out and admitted that he got the Mars angle wrong!

Did Tesla Discover the Signal?


The Black Knight Satellite


A strange satellite was discovered in the late 1950’s in orbit around Earth. Initially the Russians were thought to have been behind the vessel, but before long it was determined that the satellite was neither Russian or American.

Experts looking into the vessel then claimed that it seemed way too heavy to have been launched from Earth, and it travelled at speeds much higher than a normal satellite could reach.

They also concluded that the schedule of the satellite was very mixed up – it didn’t seem to stick to a regular orbit pattern at any one time.

The Black Knight


Gordon Cooper


Mercury astronaut Gordon Cooper (1927-2004) eventually came out and claimed that he had picked up the strange satellite signal when he took part in the Mercury flight. He also claimed that his ground control contacts also picked up the strange signal.

Unfortunately Cooper went back on this statement not long after he made it, and signed off on transcripts claiming he was lying and he never heard any sort of signal on his flight.

Why did he go back on his word?

Was he forced into this action by authorities?


The Black Knight Satellite Conspiracy


In 1988 the astronaut team aboard the Space Shuttle Orbiter Endeavour actually managed to take a few photographs of the strange satellite in orbit.

Many ufologists got very excited over the images, but numerous sceptics came forward and claimed that the images were nothing more than a thermal blanket that had escaped it’s latching on the nearby International Space Station.

There are numerous articles online claiming that they have solved the mystery of the Black Knight – some even going as far as claiming the whole subject was/is nothing more than a hoax.

But the truth of the matter is that nobody really knows the answer to this strange space mystery.

The Lake Erie UFO Sightings

The Lake Erie UFO Sightings

This article will be covering the reports linked to the Lake Erie UFO sightings that were experienced on March the 4th, 1988, in the USA.


What The Baker Family Saw

The Baker’s were on there way home from a nice meal out on the 4th of March at around half past eight in the evening. Sheila and Henry Baker had decided to take their three kids out for a meal, and were then driving home along the waterfront of Lake Erie when Shelia noticed something on the water’s surface.

Henry slowed down the car and the family were shocked to see some sort of football shaped object rocking back and forth on the lake.

It hung above the water without making any sort of sound and strange lights shone out of it’s ‘tipped’ ends. The Baker family got out of the car to investigate further, but as they did, the object started to move along the water towards them!

They turned and ran screaming back to the car, jumped in, and drove off as fast as they could.

What The Baker Family Saw


Contacting the Authorities

When the Baker family arrived home they locked all the doors, and peered out of the main living room window. They could still see the strange UFO hovering on the water, but for some reason – it’s lights had changed colour to red and blue.

They decided to phone the police, but the police line unfortunately put them straight through to the coastguard.

Shelia began to explain the incident to the coastguard and suddenly gasped as she noticed the UFO disperse a number of smaller triangular vessels from it’s body. These triangles then began to hover and dart around the main UFO’s area.

Without warning, the triangular objects then began moving towards the nearby Perry nuclear power plant.

Contacting the Authorities


The Coastguard

The coastguard finally arrived in the form of Seaman James Power and Petty Officer John Knaub, they contacted the Baker family who then pointed out where the UFO was spotted.

The decided to get as close as they could to the UFO, and moved in. As they approached the strange vessel they noticed that the icy water’s surface was starting to crack every time the UFO got too close to it.

The coastguards looked worried, and the Baker family heard them radio in a message to their HQ explaining that they were witnessing something extraordinary.

Suddenly, one of the smaller triangular UFOs broke away from it’s fleet and started to dart around the coastguard’s boat. It seemed to spin as it travelled around the boat, as it investigated the vessel. After a minute or so, it then returned to it’s mother ship fleet.

A sudden noise was then followed by all the triangular objects re-entering the main UFO as it’s lights yet again changed colour. Within a blink of the eye – it then disappeared into the night sky.

All that remained was the cracked ice on the lake’s surface.

The Capuchin Catacombs Mummies

The Capuchin Catacombs Mummies

In this article we will be taking a look at the mysterious Capuchin Catacombs mummies, one of which is a rather famous corpse of a young girl that they nicknamed ‘Sleeping Beauty’…


The Most Beautiful Mummy in The World

The Capuchin Catacombs lie silently in Palermo, holding a diverse selection of mummified corpses…and the most beautiful mummy in the world.

Why does this mummy stand out above the others?

Why do people and paranormal experts find it so fascinating?

Well, this beautiful mummy of a little girl…sometimes feels the need to blink at whoever is looking at her!

Rosalia Lombardo


Rosalia Lombardo

When she was alive, the most beautiful mummy in the world was a little girl named Rosalia Lombardo. There’s not that much information on her life but what researchers can gather is that she died around the age of two, back in 1920.

There are rumours that she fell victim to pneumonia and never recovered.


The Master Craftsman

Rosalia Lombardo was apparently embalmed by Alfredo Salafia – a known master craftsman in his day. Many modern-day embalmers still insist that Salafia’s work is still better than anything they can manage with modern techniques.

capuchin catacombs italy

But how could this Italian craftsman have reached this level of expertise over a century ago?

Well rumour has it that he learned his trade by studying the ancient Egyptian techniques of mummifying, therefore he left all the organs untouched inside the dead bodies he was working on.


The Blinking Girl

Many people are drawn to the mummified corpse of this little girl due to her innocence and the beauty Salafia has managed to capture in his work…but she is also known to blink at certain visitors.

capuchin monks catacombs

The reports came through thick and fast, so the owners of the catacombs decided to set up a time lapse camera to see if they could catch this paranormal event.

They managed to catch her blinking – Through the camera frames they clearly witnessed the young girl’s beautiful blue eyes as she blinked.


The Capuchin Catacombs Mummies

There are numerous conspiracy theories linked to the blinking girl in the Capuchin Catacombs – most of them border on the side of the paranormal.

One interesting theory I read came from a man pointing out that the changing humidity in the Capuchin Catacombs was responsible for the eye movement in the girl’s mummy.

But, folklore in Palermo points to the fact that Rosalia’s spirit has been restless inside her mummified body now for nearly a century – the blinking is an indication that it want’s to get out and move onto heaven.
