Did a ghost kill tourist Elisa Lam at the Cecil Hotel in Los Angeles (video)

elisa lam elevator Cecil Hotel has a rich, haunted past; it won't leave! Elisa Lam's performance in a spooky elevator surveillance tape reanimates musty memories, undisturbed, but not entirely put to rest.

Is Elisa happy or is she paranoid (on the viral elevator tape below)?

One moment she moves her hands in mellifluous lyrical play, yet in another moment she peers out of the elevator, looking side to side, as if she suspects someone is watching and following her! Cut to footage of police on the Cecil rooftop looking about the Hotel water tanks.

How could a Vancouver resident, Elisa Lam, 21, end up dead in one of these water tanks? Could she have accidentally dropped in there and drown? Highly unlikely! More logical, someone dropped her in there.

Cause of death are inconclusive; more tests may yield better results, but will take weeks to come back.

Was this chilly paranormal experience in a Cecil Hotel elevator (that never moves) very close to the moment of her death? January 31st is apparently the last time she was seen; this is easily explained by her having been killed on this very day. The door to the rooftop was locked; only hotel employees had access.

Legendary Haunted places in California #1-10

1. ANZA BORREGO STATE PARK: Vallecito Station

Once a stop on the Butterfield State Line (which boasted to take passengers from St. Louis to San Francisco in less than twenty-four days), the adobe lodge is now the home to two Texans who killed each other in a gunfight. Also, a spectral white horse appears on moonlit nights, but perhaps most famous of all is the White Lady of Vallecito. It is believed that the White Lady is Eileen O'Connor who was on her way to marry a wealthy man in Sacramento. The trip, however, was too much for her, and she died at Vallecito. She was buried in her bridal gown in the small graveyard on the site. According to local legend, she is sometimes seen rising from her grave and floating next to the stage stop, as if waiting for the next coach to arrive. One man even claims to have received a shock when he touched the White Lady. A laughing cowboy has appeared in a camper's tent and when the foundations of the restrooms were being dug, workers were surprised to discover a woman's ghost hovering above them. Current custodians at the park track the mysterious movement of rocks at the site. Frequently, large rocks are found placed in tree branches or on the corners of picnic tables. No explanation has been given for the phenomenon.

2. BARSTOW: Calico Ghost Town

Tours though an underground mine and Iron Horse train rides to the Old Workings mine in the north are just some of the attractions in Calico, an 1880s silver mining town. The spirit of Wyatt Earp, who once lived here, is said to roam the old wooden sidewalks, and the ghost of a woman named Esmeralda haunts the old Playhouse. Calico is located off I-15 about ten miles northeast of Barstow.

Legend of the Haunted Griffith Park picnic table (video)

Picnic Table still there 37 years later
Minus the blood and gore and crushed corpses and police caution tape, not much has changed in many years.

High up and deep within Griffith Park the scene remains otherwise no different from how it looked on the evening of October 31, 1976, when tragedy literally befell a young Hollywood couple, inconceivably crushed by a nearby tree that toppled over upon them while they made love upon a picnic table just off winding Mt. Hollywood Drive.

As lurid as it was inexplicable, the deaths of 22-year-old musician Rand Garrett and aspring actress Nancy Jeanson, 20, were nonetheless a brief blip on the radars of local newscasts and newspapers, by and large laid to rest after their cremated remains were scattered upon the table and surroundings where the childhood sweethearts died in each others' arms.

Though their ashes have long since blown away, what hasn't been so quick to dissipate is the legend that has grown up around strange events and eerie occurences — especially around the anniversary of their demise — that witnesses claim began happening shortly after their deaths and purportedly continue to occur to this day, bolstering a belief that the anguished spirits of Rand and Nancy are wandering never too far away from the picnic table that simultaneously brought them together and tore them apart.

"People thought I was damn crazy," says retired city tree trimmer Morris Carl when he tried to explain what happened to him a few days after authorization had been given to clear the fallen tree and he was tapped for the duty. "I drove up there with a job to do and I aimed to do it. What I didn't figure on was getting scared out of my wits!"

Carl is quick to add that up to that day he never gave much thought to whether ghosts were real. "But from that point on I certainly don't give any thought that they aren't," he says.

Bigfoot believer shares some hairs (video)

SUTHERLIN, Ore. - Betty Klopp has been holding on to these strands of hair and bits of skin for nearly 45 years.

"Of course I've kept it," Klopp told KPIC News. "I wouldn't give it up for anything."

She believes the clumps came from a bigfoot.

No one has proven the existence of bigfoot - or sasquatch or yeti or skunk ape, as some call the creature.

Klopp is convinced the forest dweller is really out there.

"Oh definitely," she said. "I don't think people should go around shooting him if they find him."

Her sasquatch keepsake comes from her parents. Klopp said her parents were driving along in the 1960s, towing a small trailer, when they swerved off the road to avoid hitting what they believed was a man.

Klopp said her parents stopped at the Porter Creek Store to assess what had happened. They got out of the car and searched the area, but they found nothing.

Mysterious shaking rocks Southern New Jersey (video)

A mysterious ground shaking caused a social media stir Tuesday, with many in Atlantic and Cape May County reporting that they felt some sort of tremor Tuesday afternoon.

Numerous people throughout the region say they felt the shaking, with reports from Wildwood to Egg Harbor Township. A Cape May Court House woman said she felt the first shake at 3:09, and another 15 minutes later.

“Felt it twice thought my windows were going to come crashing in,” one North Wildwood resident wrote on the Wildwood Leader’s Facebook page.

For others, however, the shaking went unnoticed, or was mistaken for a large truck passing.

The US Geological Survey did not have any information about an earthquake in this region at this time. A spokeswoman said she had not heard any other reports, and soon after the shaking a seismologist at the USGS said he had seen no indication of an earthquake, but promised to report back if he found any sign that seismic activity caused the shake.

North Wildwood Mayor Bill Henfey said that the city’s dispatch had received two phone calls about the tremor, and that Lower Township had some phone calls as well.

Many reported feeling two tremors in a row, but nothing too serious.

Ghost wreaks havoc at the Traveler's Rest in England

Vodka, whiskey and gin are not the only spirits at a Workington pub, if recent reports are to believed.

Staff at the Travellers’ Rest on High Street claim that a troublesome entity known only as “George” has been making his presence felt by breaking glasses, closing doors and even pinning down former landlords.

Linda Pettit, 59, of Harrington, claims the events had been going on for some time before she took over the licence three years ago.

She said: “Things do happen. Glasses fly off shelves for no reason.

“I definitely think there is something in it. There are lots of things going on when there shouldn’t be - nothing major or really scary - just little things.”

Linda insisted that it was impossible that a drunken customer could be responsible for the broken glasses.
She said: “No one was any where near them.”

She had also heard stories that a former landlord and his son were pinned down by an unseen presence. Paranormal activity has also been reported around an upstairs room where it is understood that at least one person has died.

Craiglist man selling "Jackass" Ryan Dunn's Haunted car crash parts

It's pretty well established that Craigslist is the de facto place to go to get pretty much anything: slightly vomit-stained sofas, sousaphone lessons, furtive handjobs in cars, the cars themselves, and now it seems even allegedly haunted Porsche bits from the car former Jackass star Ryan Dunn died in.

Dunn and a passenger were killed in 2011 after a 130+ MPH drunk-driving accident in his Porsche 911 GT3 in the area around West Goshen Township, PA. The accident left parts everywhere and we heard people picked them up, but we hadn't heard of anyone trying to sell bits of the car until now.

Yes, if you have $300 you want to get rid of but don't want to, you know, burn the money or give it to a local dog or something, you can as effectively part yourself from those three bills by buying a shoebox's worth of Porsche 911 GT3 scraps from a morbid guy around Philly.

The Ghosts of the Bala Bay Inn in Ontario, Canada

The following is an excerpt from the book, Haunted Ontario — Ghostly Inns, Hotels, and Other Eerie Places by Terry Boyle. Haunted Ontario is published by Dundurn press and can be found in local bookstores or online at
Tiffany and Ken Bol operated the hotel as the Bala Bay Inn from the 1990s to 2004. In the summer, rooms were available for guests and in winter only the restaurant was open. In all seasons they offered the same hospitality that was there with the Sutton family. 

In 1996 I entered the front doors of the 32-room hotel. I could sense the history of the building. The first thing to catch my eye was the elaborate staircase leading from the main lobby to the second floor; a set of doors to the left led to a lounge with a central stone fireplace. Here, the Suttons entertained guests and held festive dances on Saturday nights. At the back of the hotel was the original dining room, where E.B. Sutton lay in state. On the right was the doorway to the bar where once there were rooms for rent. The back section of this bar area had been family quarters for the Suttons. 

Tiffany and the staff openly shared their personal experiences with me. They agreed that “stuff” happens, but theories abound concerning numbers and identities of the spirits. Is it Thomas Burgess, E.B. Sutton, old hotel guests, someone simply in love with Bala? 

Tiffany was a skeptic in the beginning, “I didn’t believe in that at all. A month ago I arrived at work with my 18-month-old son, Shayne. My office is located on the second floor of the building at the top of the stairs. 

Physicist claims aliens dress as humans, visit Las Vegas and use the bathroom,...just like me!

There have been many interesting presentations at the Mitchell Theatre over the years.

There was the Tom Keneally Anniversary Lecture and a talk on the building of the Harbour Bridge, and last month Peter FitzSimons spoke about his latest book, Eureka.

But the lecture scheduled at the Pitt Street venue next month is in a different realm.
Aliens. Tall, white ones, at that.
Charles Hall, a nuclear physicist, ex-military American weather specialist and author is touring Australia with his claims that the United States military has been in contact with an alien species for years.

He says the aliens would dress as humans and visit Las Vegas.

''In 1964, when I was a weather observer at Nellis Air Force Base in Nevada, I witnessed interactions between the military and a group of mysterious tall, white, human-like extra-terrestrials,'' the Vietnam veteran said from his home in Albuquerque.

''Their craft are capable of travelling faster than the speed of light because Einstein was wrong about relativity.''

History Channel's "The Bible" producers deny Satan resembles President Obama

The creators of the miniseries "The Bible" and the network that airs it are denying reports that the character Satan intentionally resembles President Barack Obama.

The couple behind the show, Mark Burnett and Roma Downey, dismissed what they called “foolish” reports that their show’s villain looked like the President.

“This is utter nonsense. The actor who played Satan, Mehdi Ouzaani, is a highly acclaimed Moroccan actor,” they said in a statement sent to FOX 411. “He has previously played parts in several Biblical epics– including Satanic characters long before Barack Obama was elected as our President.”

Downey added: "Both Mark and I have nothing but respect and love our President, who is a fellow Christian. False statements such as these are just designed as a foolish distraction to try and discredit the beauty of the story of The Bible.”

The History Channel set out to put an end to the rumors, saying the show aims to feature “a diverse cast of respected actors.”

The Haunted Herbert Grand Hotel of Kingfield, Maine (video)

KINGFIELD — Guests have told Dawn Sova of a little girl sitting on a bed, asking to leave, then disappearing. Of a ghost man walking a ghost dog down the hall.
Herbert Wing's home, now the Herbert Grand Hotel, was not a business in his day, but a place to stay if he liked you and your politics.

A year ago, a man approached the front desk and asked to see where the murder happened in the basement.

Earthquakes turn water into gold in a flash

Earthquakes have the Midas touch, a new study claims.

Water in faults vaporizes during an earthquake, depositing gold, according to a model published in the March 17 issue of the journal Nature Geoscience. The model provides a quantitative mechanism for the link between gold and quartz seen in many of the world's gold deposits, said Dion Weatherley, a geophysicist at the University of Queensland in Australia and lead author of the study.

When an earthquake strikes, it moves along a rupture in the ground — a fracture called a fault. Big faults can have many small fractures along their length, connected by jogs that appear as rectangular voids. Water often lubricates faults, filling in fractures and jogs.

About 6 miles (10 kilometers) below the surface, under incredible temperatures and pressures, the water carries high concentrations of carbon dioxide, silica and economically attractive elements like gold.
Shake, rattle and gold
During an earthquake, the fault jog suddenly opens wider. It's like pulling the lid off a pressure cooker: The water inside the void instantly vaporizes, flashing to steam and forcing silica, which forms the mineral quartz, and gold out of the fluids and onto nearby surfaces, suggest Weatherley and co-author Richard Henley, of the Australian National University in Canberra.

The top 10 Haunted Irish Hostelries

Ireland's Haunted Hostelries - for that special holiday feeling ... why not drop into a pub with its own ghost? Or even stay a night with things that go bump in the night? Ireland has a fair share of ghostly happenings and finding a haunted hostelry is not a difficult task. Add a dark night with rain lashing the window panes and you are sure to feel some shivers running down your spine. But caveat emptor - while you will have a good pint or night's rest in all mentioned houses, otherworldly apparitions cannot be guaranteed!


1. Ross Castle 

Mount Nugent, Co. Cavan

Situated on the Southern side of Lough Sheelin (where you may fish for the brown trout) Ross Castle is rumored to be haunted by several specters and ghosts. An investigation in the Summer of 2006 provided no conclusive tangible evidence - but the participants agreed that "there was something". By the way ... the haunting is supposed to have started with the tragic love story of Sabrina and Orwin. Honeymooning couples are advised to avoid boat trips!





2. Kavanagh's ("The Grave Diggers")

1 Prospect Square, Glasnevin, Dublin

This pub from 1833 is named after the former landlord John Kavanagh - who fathered no less than 25 children! Commonly known as "The Gravediggers" due to its proximity to Prospect Cemetery and the frequently observed custom to order a pint by throwing a shovel of earth from the cemetery against the pub's wall. The resident ghost is said to be an elderly man in old-fashioned tweeds, sitting at the bar and enjoying a pint ... until he disappears without trace.

My Amityville Horror the documentary, still haunts family member (trailer video)

Of all the unexplained phenomena that swirled through the faddish 1970s, from the ancient aliens in the book "Chariots of the Gods?" to the spoon-bending Uri Geller, few fascinated the public like "The Amityville Horror."

The bestselling 1977 book and the 1979 hit film were based on the allegedly true story of George and Kathy Lutz and her three young children, whose Dutch Colonial at 112 Ocean Ave. in Amityville -- the site of a mass murder 13 months earlier -- turned out to be plagued by oozing walls and demonic spirits. The Lutzes' haunted-house tale became a media sensation, a lucrative franchise (James Brolin and Margot Kidder played them in the first of many movies) and remains the subject of a still-unresolved debate: Was it definitive proof of the supernatural, or just a canny hoax?

Daniel Lutz, who lived through it as a 9-year-old, is publicly telling his story for the first time in "My Amityville Horror," an independently produced documentary opening Friday at Manhattan's IFC Center and available through video-on-demand. Believers and debunkers alike may find that the movie provides fuel for their opposing arguments.

"I'm not a believer in what happened, but I'm not an outright skeptic," says Eric Walter, the film's Los Angeles-based director. "I believe something happened to these people, but we don't know what it was."

'Bigfoot Capital of Texas' Near Houston

Like many celebrities, Bigfoot has his own reality show. It is a huge achievement, considering his existence is still up for debate.

But to a growing number of believers in Texas, Bigfoot lives among us, and they are now out to prove it.

“We know that they’re there,” said Travis Lawrence with the not-for-profit Texas Bigfoot Conservancy.

“We’ve heard them, we’ve seen them, we’ve smelled them.”

Like the characters on Animal Planet’s “Finding Bigfoot,” Lawrence investigates sightings. He claims to have once seen a Bigfoot, as well as its unexplained over-sized footprints.

“Isn’t it incredible that in our backyards in North America there could be a seven, eight-foot tall ape?” he asks. “I mean, if that’s real, if that’s true, that’s incredible. That’s the zoological discovery of all time.”

Sightings in Texas are nothing new and date back to the settlement of Native Americans. But today, the most seem to be happening in the same place. And it is not far from Houston.

11 crazy Bigfoot conspiracy theories...."Because it goes to 11"

Whether or not you believe in Bigfoot, chances are you live pretty close to somebody who does: Sasquatch sightings have been reported in every state but Hawaii over the course of several centuries. In the process, a number of bizarre theories have been put forth to explain how the mysterious beasts came to be, reproduce, and constantly evade us.

1. A DNA test proved that bigfoot is a part-human hybid...and deserves U.S. citizenship!Texas veterinarian Melba S. Ketchum claimed last November to have proved via a Sasquatch DNA sample that the legendary apes are partially human. She even went so far as to insist that the government recognize them as "an indigenous people and immediately protect their human and Constitutional rights."

2. The government secretly removed burnt Sasquatch corpses from Mount St. Helens after the 1980 eruption. Following the disaster, a few witnesses reported seeing federal helicopters carrying off the charred remains of several Sasquatches from the area. Prior to the eruption, Mount St. Helens had already been a hot spot for supposed "ape-men" sightings since the 1920s. In fact, so many of these stories were recorded that a nearby gorge was eventually named "Ape Canyon."

3. Bigfoot is really a caveman.In 2007, Vancouver Island resident Robert Wilson claimed to have seen "what I thought was a bear. I drove down and saw what I could only describe as a large, hairy man who looked cave man-like… with sort of Neanderthal features. As big as a bear, easily." Expanding on his claim, a 2011 History Channel documentary proposed that "[the] sasquatch might not be a giant ape at all, but could be a species of prehistoric human." You can see the segment in question at this video's 55-minute mark.

The British Supernatural Ghost survey map

Ghosts are busting out all over Britain, according to a survey which shows record-breaking rates of spooky experiences.

Research by leading psychologist and paranormal investigator Professor Richard Wiseman reveals that a quarter of British adults - more than 11million people - claim to have experienced a ghost.

In the 1950s, the figure was just 7 per cent, rising to 14 per cent in the 1990s and 19 per cent in 2003.

Prof Wiseman, who does not believe in ghosts, thinks the large number of reports of apparitions, bumps in the night, and eerie sounds may be more to do with TV than psychic activity.

Ghosts have never been so popular on television, with shows such as Most Haunted, Ghost Hunters and Famous And Frightened attracting large numbers of fans.

'It's a surprisingly high figure, and it's interesting that the proportion of people who say they believe in ghosts has remained the same as it has been for many years, which is about a third,' said Prof Wiseman, from the University of Hertfordshire.

'My only thought is that, because there have been a lot of ghost shows on TV, people may just be more likely to attribute certain experiences, like hearing creaky floorboards, to ghosts.

Arkansas man saves city from aliens, but loses clothes.

Russellville police had a close encounter with a man who claimed he fought extraterrestrials Tuesday.

A Russellville resident saw a man who attempted to crawl under her house and reported it to the Russellville Police Department (RPD). When police arrived on the scene, near Spring Lane, the man was observed wearing a dark T-shirt and was using his boxers to cover himself.

The man was disoriented and would only say that he lived in Arkansas when asked where he lived. The man told police he was diabetic.

The report also stated police did not smell an odor related to being under the influence of any substance, such as alcohol or drugs.

Pope County EMS was called to the scene and, shortly after arriving, found the man had a normal blood sugar level, according to test results.

Iconic Imperial Hotel for sale in Australia, ghost included (video)

THE iconic Imperial Hotel in Murwillumbah is for sale and features a ghostly inclusion at no extra cost.

Co-owner Tony Foran has decided to sell the pink pub in the heart of the Tweed town and local rumour dictates that potential purchasers may get more than they bargained for.

Head upstairs from the establishment's popular restaurant and you will come across a series of art-deco rooms, barely changed since they were built in the 30s or 40s.

On the south-west side of the building nestled between rooms four and five, lies a long, cold hallway leading to Room 23, where a ghost purportedly resides.

Bartender and long-time Murwillumbah resident Rod Prentice has been working at the Imperial for three years and believes the spirit of the old lady Mrs Lee, who died in Room 23 in the late 70s or early 80s, still lingers in the hotel.

"I've had people who've stayed up there tell me they've seen things. Said they've seen ghostly white figures in the hallway leading to the room," he said.

"This is where she's been seen. Between room 4 and 5. It was pitch black and she was standing there, like she'd been startled."

The Mysterious Case of the Devil and Don Decker

It was the case that put Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania, on the paranormal map, and now a New Zealand researcher is trying to crack it wide open.

Longtime Stroudsburg residents may recall the 1983 case of Don Decker, who was, according to reports at the time, possessed by an evil force that gave him the power to make it rain indoors.

What makes the case so compelling is that the events were witnessed by at least four police officers and several officers at the Monroe County Correctional Facility.

Witnesses believed Decker was possessed by the devil and even recounted the events for two popular TV shows — "Unsolved Mysteries" in 1993 and most recently "Paranormal Witness," which aired in November on the Syfy Channel.

The case came to the attention of New Zealand medical sociologist Robert Bartholomew after a fellow researcher heard of the events but could find no scientific explanation for them.

Bartholomew, who is originally from Whitehall, N.Y., and is now a teacher at the Botany Downs Secondary College in New Zealand, frequently writes about the paranormal for medical and sociology journals.

"Genuine" Oregon Bigfoot hair being auctioned on Ebay

If anyone is interested a seller on Ebay, from Rhododendron, Oregon by the name Bigfootseeker, is auctioning genuine "Bigfoot" hair. The story below is from the actual listing. So if you want to be part of history feel free to humor this gentleman and buy it today.

From Listing:

In august of 2012, my mother in law told me that she had seen a 'bigfoot creature' on her property and she needed help getting it to leave. I thought for sure she had been mistaken, so i went there to check out the situation. 

She said that she heard screams coming from the woods after dark, and that some of the rabbits she kept in pens had gone missing. I told her that i would stay and keep watch for her, but i really didn't expect anything. I would go there around sunset & stay til between 11pm and 12am. I saw and heard nothing. This went on for a few nights until i told her that i thought she had nothing to worry about. The morning after the first night that i didn't stay i got a call at work.

My mother in law frantically told me that she had gone out to the rabbit pen around dawn and spotted 'one of those bigfoots' taking her last two rabbits. When she angrily yelled at it, she said it looked shocked to see her & in two steps was out of the yard, clearing an old barbed wire fence 'as if it wasn't there'. I went out to her property that afternoon and looked around.

Tsunami survivors in Japan haunted by ghosts turn to exorcists. (video)

HIGASHI-MATSUSHIMA, Japan (Reuters) - The tsunami that engulfed northeastern Japan two years ago has left some survivors believing they are seeing ghosts.

In a society wary of admitting to mental problems, many are turning to exorcists for help.

Tales of spectral figures lined up at shops where now there is only rubble are what psychiatrists say is a reaction to fear after the March 11, 2011, disaster in which nearly 19,000 people were killed.

"The places where people say they see ghosts are largely those areas completely swept away by the tsunami," said Keizo Hara, a psychiatrist in the city of Ishinomaki, one of the areas worst-hit by the waves touched off by an offshore earthquake.

"We think phenomena like ghost sightings are perhaps a mental projection of the terror and worries associated with those places."

Hara said post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) might only now be emerging in many people, and the country could be facing a wave of stress-related problems.

Shinichi Yamada escaped the waves that destroyed his home and later salvaged two Buddhist statues from the wreckage. But when he brought them back to the temporary housing where he lived, he said strange things began to happen.

Mysterious "drone" spotted at New York JFK airport (video)

The pilot of a commercial jetliner spotted a drone aircraft hovering near his plane as he landed at JFK Airport yesterday, according to sources.

The Joint Terror Task Force is now probing the sighting of the mysterious flying object, the sources said.

The Alitalia pilot spotted the unmanned craft — described as “a black drone” — hovering just 200 feet from his jet about three miles east of the airport as he made his approach from Brooklyn.

“He was very clear as to what he saw,” a source said.

The pilot told investigators the object was flying at about 1,800 feet and looked like “a black drone about a meter square, with helicopter rotors on the corners.”

“It didn’t require the pilot of the jet to take any evasive action, and it didn’t interfere with the aircraft,” a source said.

The Hornet Spooklight of Oklahoma (video)

The Hornet Spooklight, named after a town in Missouri that's no longer on the map, is perhaps the most well known and frequently visited anomalous light in the United States. About the nature of the light not much is known, but it's been regularly appearing for visitors since the 19th century. Being in the Tri-State area between Missouri, Kansas, and Oklahoma, the light is actually most frequently seen on Oklahoma land.

Background & History

The light is usually seen at night, especially from 10pm into the early hours of the morning. People who have had close encounters with the light describe it as being anywhere between the size of a baseball and a basketball or larger. It can be almost any colour, and may change colours or have multiple elements, but is most frequently described as orange or yellow. Its light is strong enough to illuminate the surface of a road, and is often compared with a lantern or headlight.

Indeed it usually looks like a lantern or distant headlight, and many people often take it for such until it exhibits unusual behavior such as darting across a field and then suddenly extinguishing itself.

Local residents have seen it in their back gardens, hovering outside their bedrooms, and bobbing along past their porches.

Mysterious light blamed for circle of fire in Australia

Tasmanian police and firefighters are unable to explain the source of a beam of light which reportedly fell from the sky and formed a circle of fire in a Hobart suburb.

Early Saturday morning police and fire crews received calls from concerned residents in Carnegie Street at Claremont, who reported seeing a bright light igniting a fire in a nearby paddock.

Tasmania Fire Service officer Scott Vinen says the blaze was quickly put out, leaving an obvious burnt patch.

He says the bizarre incident has everyone baffled.

"Once we put the fire out, we kind of walked through the fire and tried to find something," he said.

"We thought a flare or something may have landed there, but we couldn't find any cause."

Did UFO stop disaster by blowing up Russian meteor? (video)

UFO (circled) near meteor
In a  twist to the Urals meteor strike in Russia, new footage has sparked claims that the space rock was blown up by a UFO.

In reports from the remote part of Russia where the meteor exploded in February, ufologists claimed they have discovered video evidence that shows the rock being struck by an object before it exploded.

More then 1,000 people were injured when the explosion scattered space rock on towns and villages in the frozen Chelyabinsk region.

Initial reports claimed the mystery object was a missile fired by the Russian military, but those claims have not been confirmed.

As a result, it has been claimed that the UFO saved the day by preventing greater carnage that could have resulted had the meteor smashed intact into the ground.
