Space Shuttle science shows how 1908 Tunguska explosion was caused by a comet
The mysterious 1908 Tunguska explosion that leveled 830 square miles of Siberian forest was almost certainly caused by a comet entering the Earth's atmosphere, says new Cornell University research. The conclusion is supported by an unlikely source: the exhaust plume from the NASA space shuttle launched a century later...

Spain: The Bigfoot of the Pyrenees
Inexplicata has written elsewhere about the "simiots" of Spain's Catalunya and Upper Aragon - creatures that may well find their U.S. counterparts in our very own Bigfoot. Today, Raul Nuñez of the IIEE sends us an interesting article on another supersized inhabitant of the Pyrenees -- the towering "Basajaun", a regular feature of Basque folklore. The article, written by Roberto Aretxaga and J.M. Satrústegui, first appeared in issue 134 of the defunct Karma-7 magazine: "There exist creatures of considerable height, completely covered in hair, that wander the Pyrenees with incredible agility, and even along non-Pyrenaic ares such as Zenauri, in the Basque Country, or the caves of Muskia and Mailuxe. They are collectively known as the "Basajun", the lords of the forests...

The legend of One-Eye
Lake Granbury can look like a vision from a landscaped painting. What comes to mind when you think about Granbury, Texas is wholesome entertaining family fun, historic buildings, a world famous Opera House, a Mississippi River paddle boat, and the final resting place of Jesse James. Sadly there is a strange side to this pleasant community. Slowly more people have come to realize this fact as local newspapers and Japanese television started to feature reports about a prehistoric water serpent living in Lake Granbury...

What lies beyond the Veil?
Paranormal Pastor: Where do we go when we die? Two things spurred me to write this blog today. First was the passing of three American Icons, Ed McMahon, Farrah Fawcett, and Michael Jackson. When legends die most people begin to wonder about their own mortality as well. Secondly an acerbic comment left by 'John', an obviously confused person who by the prejudgment of his Fundamentalist ideology accused me of twisting Scripture to my own ends and urged me in no certain terms to 'repent'. The topic in question for which 'John' had issues with was that of the Scriptural view of 'Ghosts' I examined in my article The Bible and the Paranormal Part 1:Ghosts...

Video: The Brown Mountain Lights phenomena
The Brown Mountain Lights are one of the most famous of North Carolina legends. They have been reported a dozen times in newspaper stories. They have been investigated at least twice by the U.S. Geological Survey. And they have attracted the attention of numerous scientists and historians since the German engineer, Gerard Will de Brahm, recorded the mysterious lights in the North Carolina mountains in 1771...

2009: Rosemary Breen: Survey of Spontaneous Paranormal Experiences
Welcome to The Nature Incidence & Impact of Spontaneous Paranormal Experiences! Originally, this survey was used to collect data for my Higher Degree dissertation at Monash University in Australia and I believe that was the first time the Internet had been used to collect paranormal data on such a large scale. Over 4,000 volunteers participated in the original survey and those who missed out have since asked me to run the survey again. With your help this second round could be even bigger than the first. So, spread the word and let's see how the paranormal is being felt around the world...

Screaming kangaroos: large anomalous marsupials in the USA?
The largest, and perhaps most famous of the macropod family (that is, creatures with large feet) are Australia's iconic hopping delight, the Kangaroo. Used as a national symbol appearing on the Australian coat of arms, some of its currency, and a variety of other places, this unique saltatating (jumping) creature has become a mainstay of Australian culture...

Spirit voices of plants: surprising subtleties of our leafy kindred

House haunted by spirits?
It's the sort of house you might fantasize about. Three stories. A deck with an ocean view. A Laguna Beach address. But like the house in "Amityville Horror" or umpteen other scary movies, it creeped Lori Duarte out...

Twin sisters get the same exam scores: telepathy or not?
Do twins have telepathy? When twin sisters got the same scores on this year's national college entrance examination, villagers in Shaoxing, east China's Zhejiang Province started to wonder if the girls read one another's minds, according to a story on Zjol.com. The twin sisters, Zang Jiahuan and Zang Jiale, took the annual college entrance exams at the beginning of this June. When they received the results showing they both scored 644 points, they were shocked...

Pond disappears while owner walks
When George Terry Dinnie left his Lower Macungie Township house to walk his dog Monday morning, his 2,500-gallon decorative pond was full. When he returned about an hour and a half later, the pond was empty...
