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.

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?

Haunted Hospitals

Haunted Hospitals

 

In this article we will be covering five world famous haunted hospitals that have made their name through numerous paranormal incidents. Let’s take a look at some of the darkest medical facilities on the planet…

 


Sai Ying Pun

The Sai Ying Pun Hospital was constructed in the later years of the 1800’s and is situated in Hong Kong. In it’s early years it was primarily used as a dormitory for nurses and medical personnel.

During the Second World War rumours began to surface about the Japanese army using the building to murder a selection of hostages…we still don’t know how trustworthy these rumours actually were.

Sai Ying Pun

The first paranormal reports started surfacing in the 1970’s, and locals immediately blamed the legendary ‘murders’ of the war time years. There have been reports of disembodied voices, headless ghosts, and footsteps in empty rooms.

 


St Augustine Hospital

The original St. Augustine’s Royal Hope Hospital was built in Florida but ended up being brought down in the early 19th century due to age and wear. Another hospital was then quickly developed on the same spot of land.

St. Augustine’s Royal Hope Hospital

The hospital has undergone numerous building projects over the last few decades and one of these constructions managed to uncover a ancient American Indian burial site.

The paranormal activity experienced within the hospital walls in now blamed on the angry spirits from the burial site below the building.

 


Severalls Hospital

This English hospital building has a twisted and tragic history of alleged mistreatment of its mentally ill patients. Over the years there have been numerous reports of unnecessary and cruel procedures which involve brain surgery and electric shock treatments.

Severalls Hospital

The hospital was finally closed down and then abandoned in the middle of the 1990’s…leading to numerous trespassers and vandals submitting terrifying reports of paranormal activity witnessed in the old mortuary section of the hospital.

 


The Waverly Hills Sanatorium Ghosts

Based in in Louisville, Kentucky, this infamous building saw more than 60,000 deaths in its history due to the tuberculosis crisis.

The Waverly Hills Sanatorium first opened in 1910 when the disease was at it’s peak. It saw so many deaths the owners had to create a tunnel beneath the building to remove the dead bodies without alarming the other sick patients.

The Waverly Hills Sanatorium Ghosts

The two most famous entities at the hospital are a nurse who committed suicide, and a young boy who is sometimes spotted playing with his toys in the lonely, abandoned corridors.

 


The Taunton State Mental Hospital

Taunton State Hospital in Massachusetts was built in the middle of the 19th century to house psychiatric patients. It is the famous workplace of the dreaded nurse Honora Kelley (1857-1938) who is thought to have murdered over 30 patients.

The hospital also saw a large number of staff members apparently using mental patients in devil worshipping rituals that were held in it’s basement area. These murdered patients, and the occult practices, are now blamed for the high number of paranormal incidents in the building.

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?

Is The McPike Mansion Haunted?

Is The McPike Mansion Haunted?

In this article we will be covering the paranormal reports that have come in from the southwest corner of Illinois…the McPike Mansion.

Situated in Alton, a town now referred to as ‘The Most Haunted Town In Amercia’ – is the McPike Mansion haunted?

Let’s take a closer look…


The McPike Mansion

Henry McPike and his family had the three-story red brick mansion built back in 1869. McPike was a very successful local businessman who had also served as mayor of Alton for three years.

When McPike moved on, the house was purchased by a man named Paul Laichinger, who turned the property into a kind of boarding home. He rented numerous rooms out to tenants looking for somewhere to live.

This is when the first instances of paranormal activity began to seep out of the building.

Many of these boarders or residents, reported strange events that could not be explained. In some cases these events included the sounds of children playing and laughing when there were no children in the area.

Laichinger died in 1945 and the premises sat vacant…before long it became a little on the derelict side.

Passers by began to reports seeing strange white faces in the windows of the once grand property.

red brick mansion


1994

In 1994 the building was finally bought up by Sharyn and George Luedke. They purchased the location in the hope that they could turn it into a famous bed and breakfast spot for the area.

After six weeks of working on the mansion, Sharyn had her first paranormal experience when she was rooting through the main garden…

As she worked she looked up to see a strange man staring down at her from one of the windows. He near enough instantly vanished, but not before Sharyn could take note of his strange attire.

Later, while researching the history of the mansion, Mrs. Luedke was startled as she came across a photo of previous owner Paul Laichinger…who was wearing the exact same clothes as the vanishing man in the window!

Mrs. Luedke


Investigations

After this incident, Sharyn Luedke and her husband decided to let in various mediums and psychics to investigate the property properly. A lot of these studies led to the paranormal experts admitting that they could feel the McPike family and other residents of the estate.

Sharyn now believes that the McPike family and one of their servant girls, named Sarah Wells, haunt the old building.

Numerous other paranormal experts have reported the feeling of being touched in the dark, and a few have even caught a few orbs in photos taken inside the property.

The building’s wine cellar seems to be the hub of the paranormal activity, with numerous reports of a strange mist that seems to follow anyone that is down there.

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…

The Jennifer Groesbeck Call

The Jennifer Groesbeck Call

On the night of Friday, March the 6th, Jennifer Groesbeck and her daughter, Lily, left her parents house to make the drove home from Salem to Springfield. The car would never make it to it’s destination…


Crash

Jenny lost control of her vehicle and plunged into the icy Spanish Fork River located in Utah. A completely shocked fisherman stumbled across the wreckage the following day. At that point, it’s estimated that the car had been in the icy waters for about 14 hours.

The emergency services arrived and immediately figured that the car had been abandoned in the river, probably by joy riders.

When they eventually managed to get close to the car they could see that there was someone inside.

They then heard a female voice call out for help, so they all rushed to vehicle and managed to flip it over. There were two people inside.

Crash


The Call

One of the first respondents reports that he had heard a voice, and he believes one of the others responded with, “We’re trying our best to get in there.”

The adult in the car was dead, and the child looked near enough deceased itself.

They managed to get Lily out of her child seat and safely ashore. The waters were so cold, that the firefighters who had jumped into the river to save the little girl were treated for hypothermia at a nearby hospital.

To this day, none of them really know where that call for help came from.

They later found out that Jenny had actually died on impact, so there’s no way she could have been behind the cry for help. Even knowing that Jennifer couldn’t have called for help, they stand by what they heard.

Jenny’s family are in no doubt that the call they heard came from their dead daughter. She was a devoted mother and she would have found some sort of way to stay with her baby until help arrived.

Lily spent approximately a week in the ICU while recovering.

So what really happened here?

What do you believe?

Did a loving mother find some way to transcend between life and death, to keep her child alive?

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 Ghosts of the Baskerville Hall Hotel

The Ghosts of the Baskerville Hall Hotel

In this article we will be taking a look at the ghosts of The Baskerville Hall Hotel in Hay-on-Wye, Wales, that are actually said to have been the inspiration for the famous Arthur Conan Doyle book…


The Hound of The Baskervilles

Baskerville Hall in Hay-on-Wye is the source of Arthur Conan Doyle’s The Hound of The Baskervilles. He actually had to relocate The Baskervilles to the Cornwall area in order to protect the local people that were involved in the story.

The Baskervilles and the Vaughan families lived very close together, therefore, numerous marriages happened between their family members.

History informs us that the Vaughan family spent about a decade being terrorised by a black dog, and many believe that this incident was behind Doyle’s idea for the book.

However, locals point out that the book could well have been based on an incident that took place on the estate long before the Vaughan family lived in the area…

The Hound of The Baskervilles


The Useless Hound

Local legend states that a past master of Baskerville Hall brought in a large hound to tackle the wolf problem he was seeing on the estate.

One night the hound awoke from his slumber only to see a wolf in the distance, and he started barking and growling immediately. His master was alerted by the noise, and grabbed a spear and walked downstairs in the darkness.

He checked the garden area and failed to notice the wolf cowering in the darkness, then turned to his useless hound in anger – this was not the first time the dog had got him out of bed for no reason!

In his rage he stabbed the hound through the head with his spear…then noticed the wolf bolt off into the countryside…

The dog had been right after all.

Locals believe that this dog’s spirit has never really left the estate, and has been spotted on numerous occasions, prowling the garden areas looking for intruding animals.

past master of Baskerville Hall


The Wronged Dog

Many paranormal experts take the idea of this phantom dog with a pinch of salt, after all, Wales has it’s fair share of ‘the wronged dog’ legends.

But there are those that believe that this is a solid legend. If you look closely at the coat of arms of the Baskervilles, you will notice the head of a canine being pierced by a spear in it’s antique design.


The Ghosts of the Baskerville Hall Hotel

The ghostly hound of Baskerville Hall has plenty of paranormal entities to keep it company during it’s rounds…

Many visitors to the hall have reported bumping into an elegant gentleman on the grand staircase. There are also other reports of a gentleman ghost that tends to sit on the balconies of Rooms 3 to 7.

Some historians believe that these two ‘gentleman’ ghosts are linked to the lady in white that is sometimes spotted in the estate’s gardens.
