Weekender: A Skeptic’s Close Encounter on His Wedding Day

Dimensional Gate

What happens when hardcore skeptics have an inexplicable encounter with the paranormal? Their eyes may open, their heart may soften, and their conviction in the rectitude of their own opinions may be forever shaken – providing they’re intellectually honest. The founder of Skeptic magazine clearly is an honest man; for when Michael Shermer had a close encounter of another kind on his wedding day last year, he let the whole world know about it in his monthly column in Scientific American.

Now that we know that the ‘feeling of being watched’ is not a paranoid delusion, and that we actually are being watched all the time – even through the walls of our homes –isn’t it about time you built your own Internet?

That’s what techno-activists and growing communities of users are doing at this very moment – thanks to the advent of wireless networking. And they want you to join with them.

Solitones y materia oscura pueden estar detrás de la formación de quásares

Científicos taiwaneses, en colaboración con un investigador Ikerbasque de la Universidad del País Vasco, han llevado a cabo simulaciones que muestran como los solitones, ondas solitarias y masivas, podrían explicar el origen de los quásares. Estos son los objetos más luminosos del universo, hasta cien veces más brillantes que nuestra galaxia.

Chile: UFOs Over the Atacama Region

By Carlos Opazo - Red Atacama

Province of Huasco, Atacama Region - In the Commune of Alto del Carmen, the skies are known as being among the most pristine in all Chile. Constellations, stars, satellites and anything crossing the zenith of this cordilleran sector can be seen by the unaided eye at night.

But for some time now, stars and constellations are not the only things visible in the skies of the Valle de Huasco. Strange flying objects have been seen as well, drawing the viewer's attention and causing a bit of fear.

Some stories indicate that a long time ago, locals and residents of Alto del Carmen witnessed a large luminous ball falling out toward the valley, and which caused the same expectation, fear and astonishment as the event that occurred last year in the same community. According to witnesses of the phenomenon, a powerful beam of light crossed the commune and crashed into the cordillera, followed by a strong subterranean tremor. That's not all. There are those who claim having seen extraterrestrial beings in the area, although there is no evidence of this. Likewise, such sectors as Crucecita, Pinte and Chollay report the presence of strange objects over the valley's skies. Julio Inostroza, former radio controller of the commune, notes: "There are many locals who claim having seen flying objects over the commune, but this isn't the first time."

Inostroza follows the UFO subject. He claims to be a contactee whose mission it is to spread the awareness of the existence of these entities. His experience is considerable and he has photographic and audiovisual documentation on sightings.

Another witness to these events, who did not want to disclose his identity, stated that he'd seen strange phenomena over the valley on two occasions. "Once, I was walking in the dark toward my home in a not very well-lit sector of the valley. I realized that there were three lights forming a triangle in the sky, moving little by little in the sky in parallel." He says that he was not frightened at first by the event, but when the lights vanished quickly, he started walking somewhat more briskly to reach his home. The same witness notes that a friend of his from the locality of Mitencillo, 50 kilometers toward the coast, witnessed the same spectacle at the same time in the northern night.

A former municipal official of Alto del Carmen admits having witnessed a phenomenon two years ago, having to do with the light the crossed Valle del Carmen toward the Andean Range, and which caused such fear among locals. "I had the same experience 40 years ago. I was in the interior of the valley when I heard a very loud noise, made by something falling. I didn't see it - I only heard the loud noise, since I was inside a home. The people outside told me that a very bright light had crossed the valley toward the cordillera. The mayor at the time sent a team of municipal workers to scour every corner of the valley, along with Carabineros (state police), and they could find nothing at all.

A few years ago, Vallenar and Alto del Carmen held a UFO convention where distinguished researchers visited the commune to discuss the matter of sightings. Various theories, studies and investigative approaches were put forth at the event, making the UFO phenomenon better known in Chile, but questions still remain: Are we alone? Are we the only living creatures in the galaxy? Are we visited by strange beings? Are we alone in the Huasco?

The answers can be found in each our personal experiences. Seeing is believing.

Mexico: A UFO Recorded at Colima's Volcan de Fuego?

Newsroom - SDPNoticias.com

Wed 28 JAN 2015 18:32 - A photo taken by the Webcams de Mexico website shows an unidentified flying object around Colima's Volcan de Fuego during an emanation recorded this morning.

MEXICO CITY - The activity of Colima's Volcan de Fuego, recorded over recent weeks, featured an unusual element this morning.

The Webcams de Mexico site captured the moment in which an unidentified flying object (UFO) circles the area, which has for days exhibited emanations and explosions of incandescent material and volcanic ash falls.

The image was disseminated this morning and the size of the object is not fully apparent. However, its shape presents a slender upper section, a more protuberant midsection and two extremities in its lower end.

Intense activity at the volcano is ongoing, and is being monitored by the Protección Civil national office. A video was also published yesterday of the phenomenon known as a "golden explosion" in the colossal volcano's crater.

Date: 01.29.2015


Inexplicata contributing editor Guillermo Giménez alerted us this morning to a series of photos appearing in NecocheaHoy.com suggesting the transit of an unidentified object, apparently last Thursday (01.22). The following text accompanies the images:

A UFO passed over Quequén and our reader took several photos.

This happened on Thursday when our reader and friend Mauro H. Sarmiento (missing text) and he sent them to us with the following text: "Hello Walter, it passed over Quequén on Thursday, surveying our lovely sky, and apparently no one saw it. I took these photos and found it striking. Is it a comet?

Bestia, de Gevaudan: El libro

BESTIA. Licántropos, Asesinos en Serie y Devoradores de Hombres

Resolviendo el Misterio de los Monstruos de Gevaudan.

Este es un libro fresco, abundantemente ilustrado, que aúna la biología moderna y la historia para investigar una serie de muertes espeluznantes en la campiña francesa del siglo XVIII. Algo inimaginable ocurrió entre 1764-1767 en las remotas montañas del centro-sur de Francia. Durante tres años, un monstruo, o varios, criaturas reales de carne y hueso, asolaron la región, cobrándose aproximadamente más de 100 víctimas, la mayoría mujeres y niños, y causando heridas graves a muchos otros. Las Comunidades rurales estaban en jaque – así como sus economías – siendo virtualmente secuestrados por el sanguinario merodeador. Mientras, los funcionarios locales y el rey Luis XV, desplegaron de manera masiva tropas y expertos cazadores de lobos de la lejana Normandía y rastreadores reales para tratar de acabar con la hirsuta amenaza.


El reinado de terror que desató la criatura creó las primeras crónicas periodísticas modernas, pudiéndose decir que los feroces ataques en la región de Gévaudan fueron las primeras noticias de gran calado cubiertas de manera total por los medios. A pesar de haber una amplia documentación histórica sobre este impresionante depredador, nadie parece saber exactamente lo que era. Las teorías abundan: ¿Era un animal exótico, como una hiena, que se había escapado de un zoológico? ¿Un hombre lobo? ¿Un híbrido perro/lobo? ¿Una nueva especie? ¿Algún tipo de complot o conspiración? O, como fue propuesto por el obispo local, ¿el azote de Dios? A día de hoy, el debate sobre la verdadera naturaleza de “La Bete”, “La Bestia”, continúan. Con ilustraciones históricas, dibujos científicos del autor, fotografías actuales de la región, el análisis de las autopsias, y muchos más datos, “Bestia” proporciona una mirada fascinante a todas las pruebas, mezclando historia y zoología para proponer una teoría que podría resolver una de los casos cripotzoológicos más extrañas e inexplicables de todos los tiempos: el de la infame Bestia de Gévaudan, Francia.
