CROP CIRCLES - Crop circles that appear in fields today seem to have more and more amazing shapes. Some people are convinced that all crop circles are fake, while others some see them as a message from the universe, something made by aliens who are trying to contact us.

UFO 2015 sightings: What to Expect

UFO SIGHTINGS - In 2014 there were many UFO sightings all over the world. Some of them were hoaxes of course, but that can never be avoided. Honestly, we are looking for real UFO sightings. We want to see facts that can be studied and verified by science.

UFO 2015 sightings

The year 2014 has started with some pretty mysterious UFO sightings. 

Mars Cookie Crater Still A Mystery

MARS EXPLORATION - It looks like a cookie, an apple pie, or anything else that was baked and almost boiled over. NASA’s HiRISE camera captured a mysterious, round feature on Mars. It’s like an “out-of-place object” on the otherwise smooth surface of Mars’ Athabasca region.

NASA calls it a mound and suggests that it was created when lava pushed something up from beneath at some point in time. The organization also states that it seems like material is missing from the mound, possibly ice that melted as the lava approached. The Athabasca region has more of these enigmatic formations. What could they be?

The Orion Spacecraft: One Step Closer to a Mars Mission

SPACE MISSIONS - The Orion Spacecraft is a capsule designed to carry humans deep into our solar system and return them safely to Earth. A basic prototype of the capsule has now been launched for a (very) short trip into deep space, without any passengers on board.

With this launch, NASA wanted to test some of the riskiest steps in an Orion flight, such as separations, radiation effects, and re-entry into the atmosphere. After a successful flight and landing in the ocean, the capsule was picked up by a special amphibious ship and brought back to NASA for analysis.

Hidden Secrets of Ancient Kailasa Temple and Ellora Caves

MYSTERIOUS PLACES - We could be missing the point about the Kailasa temple. This famous underground creationS, one of the Ellora caves in Maharashtra, India, fascinates many people. Everyone is marveling at the construction. Researchers, including ancient alien theorists, try to find out how the Kailasa temple was built, what an effort it must have been to cut it out of the rocks. But what does the Kailasa temple represent, what does it actually tell us?

Kailasa Temple and Ellora Caves

The Kailasa temple is a Hindu temple. It symbolizes Mount Kailash as the home of Lord Shiva. It is very much an elephant place: there are statues and reliefs of elephants in and around the location. An image of the sacred bull Nandi is on the central temple. Like other Hindu temples, the Kailasa temple has a Sikhara (spire), but it looks relatively small compared to the whole structure. On the inside of the temple, there is a ring or flower relief on the ceiling of the central room.

Mysterious Structures Discovered Around Stonehenge

STONEHENGE - Have you seen the images of the latest discoveries around Stonehenge? Over the past four years, an international team of archaeologists has been making x-rays of the ground around the mysterious ancient site in Britain. They have now presented their findings, including many images that look like aerial photographs of crop-circle-like shapes.

The BBC will be airing documentaries with all the details this Thursday and next Thursday . The documentary is called “Operation Stonehenge: What Lies Beneath”.

The archaeologists have scanned some 4.5 square miles of territory, making the Stonehenge project the worldwide largest effort ever. They used a range of x-ray techniques, which allowed them to see objects buried in the ground up to five meters deep. 

Bone-like object spotted on Mars by UFO watchers

UFO SIGHTINGS - One of the images sent back by the Mars rover Curiosity seems to show a human-like thighbone, partly buried in the soil.

At least that's what UFO watchers are making of it.
Indeed is seems to be a fossilized bone. The object is lying near a group of other shapes, that look somewhat like pottery.

UFO watchers have been pointing out more such objects over the last days.  Could Curiosity actually be on to something? Are we looking at the remains of lost life forms on Mars? Let's hope that research can shed light on this.

Ancient Mayan Cities Discovered in Mexico Jungle

ANCIENT MAYA - In southeast Mexico, two ancient Mayan cities have been discovered by a team of Slovenian archaeologists. The first location, Lagunita, has in fact been rediscovered on the basis of notes and drawings left by an American archaeologist in the 1970s.

The second location is a completely new discovery, now named Tamchén. This word means “deep well” in the Mayan language and refers to underground chambers – called chultuns - found at the site, which were supposedly used for collecting rainwater.

UFO Sighting by International Space Station

UFO SIGHTINGS - A new video recorded by the International Space Station’s cameras seems to be showing a close encounter with an unknown spaceship or UFO of some kind.

UFO Sightings

There have been speculations before about white lights and moving objects recorded by cameras in orbit. But there were always other explanations, like reflections of sunlight or satellite debris.

Comb Jellies Are The Ultimate Alien Creatures On Earth

ALIEN CREATURES - Have you seen the news about comb jellies, aliens of the sea? These amazing creatures can regenerate any lost body part in just a few days including their brains. Scientists are trying to catch and study them, to find out how they do it.

Comb Jellies

Now the regeneration talent of comb jellies is one thing, but did you know about their other qualities? Here are just a few of comb jellies’ other amazing features:

The Giant’s Causeway in Northern Ireland

ANCIENT PLACES - There are so many fascinating natural structures around the world. Shapes that are said to be natural, but just seem too special. You would think intelligent beings built them. 

Giant’s Causeway Ireland

A famous one is the Giant’s Causeway in Northern Ireland. This coastline formation consists of a large number of basalt columns that seem neatly cut into hexagonal and other angular shapes. The Giant’s Causeway is the result of ancient volcanic eruptions that happened at least 50 million years ago.

Herodium Ancient Acropolis or Launching Station

ANCIENT SITES - Herodium or Herodion is the highest hill in the Judean desert. It is said to be an acropolis, built by king Herod around 20 BCE to commemorate his victory over the Parthians. Herodium is a spectacular site and an important tourist attraction in the region. 

Herodium Alien Tomb

The hill is 2,487 (758 meters) high and is conical in shape. It served as a fortress for king Herod’s luxurious palace, that was built inside. Excavation of the palace began in 1972. It was a luxurious place at the time, with many special facilities like a theater and bath houses. In 2007, archeologists announced that they had found king Herod’s tomb inside the hill. His sarcophagus is largely destroyed, supposedly by rebels who later occupied Herodium and had no love for the ancient king.

Ancient Giant Virus Revived From the Ice, more Discoveries Expected

ANCIENT MYSTERIES - As climate change causes temperatures to rise, ice is melting in the world’s polar regions. All sorts of objects and creatures that were conserved in permafrost over tens of thousands of years, are now re-surfacing.

This is paradise for scientists. So far intact mammoths have already been unearthed, for example. And the smaller things like plants and micro-organisms could prove to be even more interesting.

Mysterious Pyramid Discovered in Egypt

ANCIENT EGYPT - Near the Egyptian city of Edfu, a previously unknown pyramid has been discovered. It is a so-called step pyramid, originally 43 feet high that dates back about 4,600 years. This type of pyramid was built earlier than the Great Pyramids.

Ancient Pyramid a step pyramid Egypt

Step pyramids are one of the most mysterious in Egypt, because no one understands what they were for. They seem to have no inner chambers, so they must have served simply as monuments. However this sounds a little too simple to be true. The newly discovered pyramid near Edfu seems to have been abandoned shortly after it was built.

The area around it seems to have been offering ground for some time. It is almost identical to other step pyramids in the region. There are some hieroglyphs on the pyramid, but archeologists think these were added as graffiti in a later period. They do not tell us anything about the pyramid’s original purpose.
