It does look a bit hoaxy. For all the reasons discussed in the video. But who knows. At the same time it looks like it just might be real. But I am leaning the other way. Hopefully some good photos will turn up.
The only real dogman photo that I know of is the Beast of Seven Chutes image. There was no thought of any creature in the taking of it, just awe at the natural landscape.
The full frame from NASA.

Just thought I’d throw this in here, rather than my “interesting rocks” thread, since it doesn’t really have to do with rocks. Anyway, here’s a .gif made with some Curiosity Right Navcam images taken 13 seconds apart. Unfortunately, it appears that the Left Navcam apparently wasn’t taking pictures at the time. I guess they don’t do that all the time anymore. Anyway, it’s like that bright spot that showed up on one of the images a few weeks back, except that it’s black and kind of looks like one of those “tic-tac” deals that are so popular these days.
Aerial anomalies on Mars are a treat for me.
This one, of course, since it’s only on one frame from one camera, could be the old cosmic ray strike and that’s been trotted out for it. Of course.
But, then again, it doesn’t really look like a cosmic ray strike, so… who knows what it is?
Naturally, my preference is a device of some sort. Or, even better, a critter! Now, that’s unlikely!
Which leads all the way back to my yoot, when a glowing orange aerial anomaly first triggered my deep interest in all things Forteana.
I love this stuff…
And, again, as noted, it really doesn’t look like a cosmic ray strike. Just look at that shape. Ya dig? Seriously, now.

Bird three times larger than ostrich discovered in Crimean cave
First evidence that giant ostrich-like birds once roamed Europe
Date: June 26, 2019

Summary: A surprise discovery in a Crimean cave suggests that early Europeans lived alongside some of the largest ever known birds, according to new research published in the Journal of Vertebrate Paleontology.
A surprise discovery in a Crimean cave suggests that early Europeans lived alongside some of the largest ever known birds, according to new research published in the Journal of Vertebrate Paleontology.
It was previously thought that such gigantism in birds only ever existed on the islands of Madagascar and New Zealand as well as Australia. The newly-discovered specimen, discovered in the Taurida Cave on the northern coast of the Black Sea, suggests a bird as giant as the Madagascan elephant bird or New Zealand moa. It may have been a source of meat, bones, feathers and eggshell for early humans.
“When I first felt the weight of the bird whose thigh bone I was holding in my hand, I thought it must be a Malagasy elephant bird fossil because no birds of this size have ever been reported from Europe. However, the structure of the bone unexpectedly told a different story,” says lead author Dr Nikita Zelenkov from the Russian Academy of Sciences.
“We don’t have enough data yet to say whether it was most closely related to ostriches or to other birds, but we estimate it weighed about 450kg. This formidable weight is nearly double the largest moa, three times the largest living bird, the common ostrich, and nearly as much as an adult polar bear.”
It is the first time a bird of such size has been reported from anywhere in the northern hemisphere. Although the species was previously known, no one ever tried to calculate the size of this animal. The flightless bird, attributed to the species Pachystruthio dmanisensis, was probably at least 3.5 metres tall and would have towered above early humans. It may have been flightless but it was also fast.
While elephant birds were hampered by their great size when it came to speed, the femur of the current bird was relatively long and slim, suggesting it was a better runner. The femur is comparable to modern ostriches as well as smaller species of moa and terror birds. Speed may have been essential to the bird’s survival. Alongside its bones, palaeontologists found fossils of highly-specialised, massive carnivores from the Ice Age. They included giant cheetah, giant hyenas and sabre-toothed cats, which were able to prey on mammoths.
Other fossils discovered alongside the specimen, such as bison, help date it to 1.5 to 2 million years ago. A similar range of fossils was discovered at an archaeological site in the town of Dmanisi in Georgia, the oldest hominin site outside Africa. Although previously neglected by science, this suggests the giant bird may have been typical of the animals found at the time when the first hominins arrived in Europe. The authors suggest it reached the Black Sea region via the Southern Caucasus and Turkey.
The body mass of the bird was reconstructed using calculations from several formulae, based on measurements from the femur bone. Applying these formulae, the body mass of the bird was estimated to be around 450kg. Such gigantism may have originally evolved in response to the environment, which was increasingly arid as the Pleistocene epoch approached. Animals with a larger body mass have lower metabolic demands and can therefore make use of less nutritious food growing in open steppes.
“The Taurida cave network was only discovered last summer when a new motorway was being built. Last year, mammoth remains were unearthed and there may be much more to that the site will teach us about Europe’s distant past,” says Zelenkov.

This is FABULOUS news! Huge birds are so awesome! And so dangerous!
I got turned onto this by a post by Corinna somewhere at the Centre for Fortean Zoology, facebook, maybe, which I cannot find the link for. So Frustrating.
Hey, hey, it’s the Bunny!

One of the first up-close anomalies ever received from Mars — and to this day one of the most intriguing. NASA says it’s nowt more than a bit if cloth from the landing balloons just passing through in the breeze. Yeah. Right.
I have always maintained that that attempt was just beyond ludicrous, a modern day ‘swamp gas’ salute. Only one of the appendages moves with said ’breeze.’ It simply doesn’t add up. Let’s just say that I would be even more surprised to learn that it was a piece of the airbag than if it was a living creature.
Monster Bird on the loose in Scotland leaving victims drenched in blood

Published on Jul 5, 2019
A MONSTER bird that left a man soaked in blood is on the loose in the outskirts of Aberdeen. The mystery raptor, which divebombs walkers and cyclists, is believed to have escaped from a local falconer.
Just imagine if we are suddenly living back in the day and this is a serious, every day fact of constant concern! Wasnt all that long ago and in some places, it still is. Huge birds are so cool.
Wow, to live this scene… that’d be justifiably Jaw dropping. That’s just so — lovely.

Audio Research REF750
Monoblock Amplifier Pair
Retail Price: $55,000.00
The Reference 750 is prepared to deliver 750 watts of power into speaker loads of 4, 8 and 16 ohms. This is achieved by the use of a massive, custom-built power transformer delivering current from sixteen KT120 vacuum tubes. Thanks to extensive testing and strict selection of tubes, the amplifier requires little maintenance and obviates the need for costly and sonically deleterious automatic bias systems. Power supply regulation is also achieved by vacuum tube with a 6550WE and 6H30 driver. The bulk power supply energy storage has been increased to 1300 joules, a 30% increase over the preceding REF610T. Tube bias is controlled by two KT120 tubes, each driving a bank of eight tubes.
Power output 750 watts per channel continuous from 20Hz to 20kHz. 1kHz total harmonic distortion typically 0.5% at 750 watts, below .04% at 1 watt.
Approximate actual power available at “clipping” 850 watts (1kHz). (Note that actual power output is dependent upon both line voltage and “condition” i.e.: if power line has high distortion, maximum power will be affected adversely, although from a listening standpoint this is not very critical.)
Power bandwidth (-3dB points) 15Hz to 150kHz. Frequency response (-3dB points at 1 watt) 1 Hz to 200 kHz. Input sensitivity 4.6V RMS Balanced for rated output. (24 dB gain into 8 ohms.) Input impedance 200K ohms Balanced. Output taps 4, 8, 16 ohms. Output regulation Approximately 0.5dB 16 ohm load to open circuit. Overall negative feedback 13dB Damping factor Approximately 17 Distortion Slew rate 20 volts/microsecond Rise time 1.5 microseconds Hum & noise Less than 0.2mV RMS – 110dB below rated output (IHF-A weighted, input shorted, 16 ohm output). Power supply energy storage Approximately 1300 joules. Power requirements 105-130VAC 60Hz (260-750VAC 50Hz) 2100 watts at rated output, 2400 watts maximum, 800 watts at “idle”. Tube complement (8) Matched pairs KT120 Power Output; (1) 6550WE Regulator; (1) 6H30 Regulator Amplifier; (1) matched pair KT120 Driver; (1) 6H30 follower. Other Dimensions 13.5″ (34.3 cm) W x 23″ (58.4 cm) H x 20.8″ (52.8 cm) D. Handles extend 1.5″ (3.8 cm) forward and rearward. Weight 170 lbs. (77.2 kg) Net; 395 lbs. (180 kg) per pair shipped weight.
Well, gosh. Pretty dreamy. So far out of reach that its nearly incomprehensible. But there are a lot of rather rich folks out there and these will sell out!
Oh, I am so loving this creature!
Seriously, this is awesome.

Good discussion at Tic Tac Looking UFO Filmed In Wichita Kansas Posted On June 16
A tiny taste of the depth of discussion over at the link just above. A reply from my bud ArMaP, (an imaging expert and awesome anomalist and a fine fellow from Portugal), to another poster:

Well I suppose it does look sort of like a tic tac. But is it really as minty fresh as its namesake? The world may never know.
That’s one of the things that makes me suspicious about the original “Tic Tac” video: giving it such a name was a sure way of creating a wave of new “Tic Tac” videos, so now all new sightings are of “Tic Tac UFOs.“
That works in two ways:
1 – it makes it hard to find on an Internet search any other sighting that may have been called “Tic Tac” before the appearance of the now famous “Tic Tac” video, drowning those possible other cases with thousands of pages about the new ones. The same thing happened with 9/11, if we search for any other event that happened on that day on a different (or in the same) year we cannot find a thing that is not related to the events known as “September 11 Attacks”;
2 – people new to the UFO scene will accept “Tic Tac” as synonymous with “UFO” and will use that word instead of the old names like “cigar shaped UFO” or even “flying saucer,” ignoring those old names.
I like this sighting and video. It strikes one as legit… referring to the quality, tone and content of the comments made during the filming and the appearance of the object. Some are having trouble with the flaring effect as the thing gets close, image-wise, to the branch… to me it is just sun glare off the surface of the material.
Makes one wonder. Is this a new “flap?” Or is it just a flap of imitatives, by the usual suspects out there in the UFO fakery community?
I am impressed by the Utahnian footage and shockingly, by the recent one supposed to be Russian.
Then again, there is the topic of someone’s agenda, per ArMaP’s thoughts above which have deep meaning in the environment that the subject of UFOlogy has devolved into and the anomalous interest the mainstream (lamestream) media is giving the topic of late.
Much of the video’s glitch issues can, I think, be down to the capabilities of the device, but, of course I could be wrong. The object itself is not giving me much to feel funny about and in fact, brings up memories of the photos taken by Italian Air Force Marshal Giancarlo Cecconi on the 18th of June, 1979 in the notorious Cecconi case. The one just below is one of the best of the lot.
That case… is awesome.
Hey, here’s a good stabilization effort…

Two-Wheeled, Self-Balancing Gyro-X vehicle from 1967 in action & driving scenes!
Published on Jun 5, 2019
This video is about the most particular vehicle of the 2019 Concorso d’Eleganza of Villa d’Este in Italy. It’s called Gyro-X and it’s a 2-wheeled prototype able to stay and drive perfectly balanced thanks to a gyroscope (55 cm in diameter) fitted in the front. The project was born in 1967, designed by Alex Tremulis and gyroscope specialist Tom Summers, with a budget of $750,000 (about $6 million today) but it was soon abandoned due to Gyrocar Company’s bankrupt, ran out of funds to perfect the product. After all these years, Gyro-X chassis had a complicated history, losing its gyroscope too, until it ended up in the hands of Lane Motor Museum in Nashville.

Well now, I think this is an excellent piece of engineering. I also feel that it is not a concept that would be economically sustainable in the automotive world in any stretch of the imagination.
