IS THIS A MAN’S SOUL LEAVING HIS BODY AFTER DROWNING?
Shanel Guiterrez claimed she saw the man’s spirit emerge and walk over the water in the Philippines on November 21. Guiterrez filmed the spooky phenomenon in Davao del Norte province on her phone. She said: “It was very creepy because I did not expect to capture that thing on my phone. “I know it was his ghost. It gave me goosebumps when I watched it.” The man, identified as Dondon, reportedly drowned at the quarry site while trying to save a stray dog. Dondon was able to push the animal to safety but continued to slip into the deeper part of the water while doing so.
Based on my studies, it could very well be exactly that.
On the 22nd of February 1970, a photographer named John Gilpin was testing his new lenses at Sydney airport, after developing the images he took he discovered that he’d captured the last moments of Keith Sapsford, a 14 year-old boy who snuck into a plane wheel and it opened mid-air.

This is the original footage I captured with my cannon power shot and my friends coolpix digital camera. The intro should give a good explanation as to what Im filming and where I was. This was on August 4th, 2012 at 11am. Please if anyone has questions about the video post them below, I really want input as to what is in this lake.

Although these incidents are not technically Dark Days, because they only lasted an hour, Dark Days are one of my favorite phenomena.
In any event, I do npt recall ever hearing about this double whammy for some reason. They are incredibly rare and it is so hard to find them or any information or even mentions.
Was the cloud alive?

America Unearthed: Ark of the Covenant Hidden in Arizona (S2, E1) | Full Episode | History
Sep 27, 2020
Scott Wolter gets a call from a man who has a mysterious stone on his property. He’s convinced that it’s the “Stone of Destiny”–the stone that Jacob from the Bible rested his head on, in Season 2, Episode 1, “Ark of the Covenant.”
In “America Unearthed,” host Scott Wolter uses hard science and intuitive theories to explain the most mysterious artifacts and sites in America.
I found this quite interesting, as I have never heard of this theory before. I had been pretty well convinced it was and is at the Coptic church in Axum, Ethiopa.
The Church of Our Lady Mary of Zion (Amharic: ርዕሰ አድባራት ቅድስተ ቅዱሳን ድንግል ማሪያም ፅዮን Re-ese Adbarat Kidiste Kidusan Dingel Maryam Ts’iyon) is an Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo Church in Ethiopia. It is claimed to contain the Ark of the Covenant. It is located in the town of Axum, Tigray. The original church is believed to have been built during the reign of Ezana the first Christian ruler of the Kingdom of Axum (Present-day Eritrea and Ethiopia), during the 4th century AD, and has been rebuilt several times since then.
Yosemite National Park: Strange and Unexplained Disappearances
Nov 22, 2019
► Support the channel over at Patreon! https://www.patreon.com/topmysteries ► Located in the western Sierra Nevada of Central California, bounded on the southeast by the Sierra National Forest and on the northwest by the Stanislaus National Forest; lies a beautiful vast wilderness that attracts over 4 million people every year. Officially, federally protected in 1864, and later declared a National Park on the 1st of October 1890 by a Congressional act, the Yosemite National Park was officially born. This expansive land, covering almost 1,200 squares miles was officially designated as a world heritage site in 1984. Perhaps best known for its captivating waterfalls, it’s also famous for its clear streams, ancient and giant sequoia groves, it’s lakes, mountains, meadows and glaciers. It is also home to one of the worlds natural wonders; Yosemite Valley. According to nationalgeographic.com: “This Valley stretches 8 miles from east to west with granite walls more than twice the height of the Empire State Building. Carved by glacial dynamics and weathering and erosion spanning 30 million years. This is a wonder of the natural world.” The National Park Service describes the Valley as a “shrine to human foresight with the strength of its granite, its persistence of life and the tranquillity of the High Sierra.” But not all is tranquil in the National Park. Yosemite National Park, in recent times has also become well known for its disappearances that many claim to be unusual. Yosemite National Park: Strange and Unexplained Disappearances

Wildlife Photographer Captures ‘Never Before Seen’ Yellow Penguin
FEB 18, 2021
A wildlife photographer has shared a once-in-a-lifetime photo of what he believes is a “never before seen” yellow penguin.
Belgian landscape and wildlife photographer Yves Adams was leading a two-month photo exhibition in the South Atlantic in December 2019 when the group made a stop on an island in South Georgia to photograph a colony of over 120,000 king penguins.
While unloading some safety equipment and food onto Salisbury Plain, Adams noticed an unusual sight he had never seen before: a penguin with bright yellow plumage.
“I’d never seen or heard of a yellow penguin before,” the photographer tells Kennedy News. “There were 120,000 birds on that beach and this was the only yellow one there.”
Very cool! A leucistic penguin!
why no one is talking about this ? an actual image of Mars ( from NASA website ) showing what looks like a ufo.
Well, it certainly does look like it. But it’s too far away for anything but speculation. Video would help.
I don’t like that the image number is not included. Prevents real analysis from happening. That is too common with this sort of posting.
Although very science-based, I do have a soft spot for Martian anomalies… I spent hours and hours back in the day hunting stuff… there are so many fascinating things on Mars… and this one is pretty good, all things considered.

This NASA Probe Did A Flyover Of Mars Moon Phobos And Accidentally Detected This
Feb 26, 2021
This NASA probe did a flyover of Mars Moon Phobos and accidentally detected this. Today, we take a look at this interesting discovery made by a NASA probe. In our modern age, a genuine, mind-blowing discovery is seemingly hard to come by. Our ever-expanding knowledge of our planet and the universe means that we are slowly chipping away at the mountain of questions we have about this plane of existence. But every now and then something truly baffling rears its head, something that throws a wrench in the works of everything we thought we knew. These rare discoveries can be found in the strangest of places, leading to great interest from the public as well as the scientific community.
Thank you for watching! Thank you to CO.AG for the background music!
An excellent presentation and completely woo-free. 🙂

UFO caught on night vision cam
Jan 23, 2020
I was testing my nighttime camera to adjust the lens before putting it back on my telescope mount and decided to stick it straight up at the sky since it was a clear night and lo and behold this is what I caught zooming around making crazy turns. I captured this type of activity over two nights. I am not saying it’s aliens. What I am saying is I have no idea what the heck it is. But I do know for a fact that asteroids and comments and space junk doesn’t re-enter earths atmosphere stop and then make a left or a right hand turn before zooming off out of the picture at some ungodly speed. This was taken in New Jersey in January so I am ruling out bugs. Let me know what you think. Space Force
This has possibilities…

This is interesting.

Kind of ominous, too, eh.

Seems legit, as well, but idk for certain.
It was during my third deployment to Iraq; the platoon had taken up residence in two houses in a village several miles south of Haditha. One day I heard our translator having a heated discussion with two local men. I grabbed my gear and my rifle and walked out to the road to investigate. I ask the translator what was going on. He tells me that these two men are crazy and assures me that they are not dangerous. I ask what they want, and he mumbles about them being superstitious, or something along those lines. He assures me that everything is ok, and my attention is not needed. It took a bit of prying, but the translator finally says that they are having a wolfman problem, but they are afraid that if they shoot at it, the local troops will be alarmed and attack their house. They tell us that this wolfman has been coming around late at night and has already killed a few sheep. And they are worried that it’s going to start attacking their family.
So, I assume somewhere in translation the word ‘dog’ has turned into ‘wolf’ and is somehow being conveyed to me by the translator as ‘wolfman’. So, I try to clarify “do they mean a dog?” The translator is a bit hesitant, almost like he’s embarrassed that his countrymen are wasting everyone’s time by believing in such nonsense. But they are adamant that their house is being besieged by a wolfman. Again, I ask if it’s just a big dog, and no, it’s a wolfman. So, I ask if there are wolves in Iraq and they are all in agreeance that yes, there are wolves in Iraq. But there are no wolves in this part of the country and it’s not a wolf or a large dog that has been killing their sheep; it’s a wolfman.
The translator is trying to usher them away but at this point I am very intrigued, and still a bit confused over the whole “dog-wolf-wolfman” thing. So, I ask them to describe what they are seeing. They tell me that every few nights it comes around, they first see it on four legs, as it skulks around their small compound. But then it stands up like a man, walking on two legs. It growls and it has lunged at the men, but as they retreat, it turns its attention to the sheep. Their own dogs refusing to help protect human or sheep. They tell me the creature has killed a few of their sheep and that they have even found one of the bodies, ripped apart with portions of it eaten away. They have been hesitant to shoot for fear of troop involvement.
The translator says that he has heard of such a creature, and even though this type of story has been spread through the area by various people, it is no more than superstitions and delusions. He assures me that there is no such thing as a wolfman.
I tell the two men that they should feel free to protect themselves and their livestock. And with my interest piqued, I get the men to agree to allowing us to stop by from time to time and set up an observation post while we are out on patrol. A couple nights later I join a night patrol and we head towards the house. We are greeted by one of the men and he gives us entry to the compound. We go up to the roof and set out sentries to overlook a nearby bridge.
About an hour later the homeowner comes up with a panicked look on his face. He’s talking really fast; excitement and concern in his voice and body language. He’s wanting me to come with him. I tell two others to come with me and we all follow the man. He leads us to the other side of the house, and we exit onto an enclosed courtyard where the sheep are being kept. The sheep are making plenty of noise and the man is pointing to a dark corner of the yard. I strain my eyes to see what he’s pointing at. Finally, I see it, a large wolf/dog, just standing in the corner. I ask the other two guys with me if they see it too, and they both agree that it’s a wolf or a dog. It moved behind a small sections on of wall and I could hear popping & cracking noises; like joints or knuckles being cracked. When it stepped out from behind the wall, it was upright on two legs. It swiftly and effortlessly jumped the perimeter wall and we could here it running away on two feet.
I conveyed to the man as best I could, if that thing ever showed up again, feel free to shoot it if he could; and if he did, to please let me know.
I have always found this an interesting case, especially if it was true.
And by chance I now stumble across this fab report!

“The Man from Taured”—Solved
“He’s a real nowhere man, sitting in his nowhere land…”
In 1954, a well-dressed Caucasian man arrives at Tokyo’s Haneda Airport. Everything seems to be going normally until the man gives customs officials his passport.
The passport shows him coming from a country called Taured, you see. And Taured doesn’t exist.
Officials take the man aside and start interrogating him. Someone brings out a map, and the man identifies Taured as a location between France and Spain—where the real-world microstate of Andorra is.
An interrogator asks him if he means Andorra. No, he’s never heard of it. He’s from Taured.
He has money from several different (real) European countries. His passport has multiple stamps, including Japanese ones, and appears real. He claims he has a business meeting in Tokyo. He can speak Japanese and says his native language is French.
Officials take him to a nearby hotel room, on the top floor, and put him under guard. Then they do some checking.
The company for which he claims to work has never heard of him.
The hotel at which he claims to have booked a reservation never received one from him.
Officials go back to the room—and the man has vanished. The guards swear he never came out the door, and the only way out is through the window—which is not only on the hotel’s top floor but also locked.
He’s never seen again.
As you’ve probably guessed, this fun Twilight Zone-esque story is almost definitely bogus. No one has ever been able to find any Haneda Airport documentation or contemporary newspaper articles about it—or any evidence whatsoever. It’s now more or less a copypasta, with little variation between retellings.
But how did it start?
This tale was posted here in 2014, and u/Meginsanity found what I think is the earliest-known reference to the story, in Colin Wilson and John Grant’s The Directory of Possibilities (1981). In the book, Wilson and Grant have one sentence on our Tauredian traveler:
And in 1954 a passport check in Japan is alleged to have produced a man with papers issued by the nation of Taured.
I haven’t been able to find a single earlier reference. So what about the rest of the story?
Well, I think the entire second half can be jettisoned. Even accepting that a man can disappear/transport back to his alternate universe from a locked and watched hotel room (paging the ghost of John Dickson Carr), why would customs officials have brought him to a random hotel in the first place? That section of the story reads like a later addition to make the reader think the guy really did come from an alternate universe.
Did the first half happen, though? If so, the solution may be nothing more than the French-Japanese language barrier. Note that the French word for Andorra, l’Andorre, has some of the same vowel sounds as the made-up Taured. (We don’t know for certain, after all, that the man actually spoke Japanese.) And remember that the Wilson/Grant book says nothing more than that the man produced “papers issued by the nation of Taured.”
That said, I do know one of the book’s authors, Colin Wilson—an interesting, intelligent, and insightful writer who nevertheless “believed almost everything he read about the paranormal, no matter how outrageous,” as skeptic Martin Gardner wrote. Knowing what I do of Wilson, I don’t think he would have made up a reference, but he might have repeated one uncritically. Where he got it, though, I have no idea.
That was originally where I stopped my post, more or less.
But then I found two Reddit posts that—I can say with some certainty—cracked the entire case.
Last year, u/NatanaelAntonioli posted to r/japan about the story. He/she linked to an Aug. 15, 1960, clipping from Vancouver’s The Province, which told the story of conman John Allen Kuchar Zegrus (emboldenings mine):
Mr. Zegrus wanted to travel the world. To impress officials, he invented a nation, a capital, a people and a language. All these he recorded on a passport which he made himself. […]
John claimed to be a “naturalized Ethiopian and an intelligent agent for Colonel Nasser.” The passport was stamped as issued at Tamanrasset, the capital of Tuared “south of the Sahara.” Any places so romantically named ought to exist, but they don’t. John Allen Kuchar Zegrus invented them. […]
[Zegrus’s] gallant gesture for the individualist, unfortunately, ended with the Japanese in Tokyo. They began looking up maps.
This rather tears it, I think. Other than the country’s placement “south of the Sahara” rather than between France and Spain, this basically is the Taured story. And the spelling is close that I can’t believe it’s a coincidence.
Antonioli also linked to a 1960 speech by British M.P. Robert Mathew, published in Hansard. According to Mathew (emboldenings again mine):
My hon. Friend may know the case of John Alan Zegrus, who is at present being prosecuted in Tokio. […] This man, according to the evidence, has travelled all over the world with a very impressive looking passport indeed. […]
The passport is stated to have been issued in Tamanrosset the capital of the independent sovereign state of Tuarid. […] When the accused was cross-examined he said that it was a State of 2 million population somewhere south of the Sahara. This man has been round the world on this passport without hindrance, a Passport which as far as we know is written in the invented language of an invented country.
And then in Nov. 2020, u/taraiochi figured out the last piece of the puzzle. He/she linked to a 1960 Japanese newspaper article that is clearly about Zegrus. As translated by u/johnmasterof, it reads:
A mysterious foreigner of unknown nationality and background, accused of illegal entry and fraud, tried to commit suicide in front of the judge who handed down the verdict, at the Tokyo District Court on April 10. The defendant, John Allen K. Ziegler [sic] (36), was sentenced by Judge Yamagishi to one year of imprisonment…
Zieglass [sic] and his Korean wife entered Haneda Airport with a forged passport from Taipei on October 24 last year, and in December of the same year, he stole about 200,000 yen and $140 in traveler’s checks from the Tokyo branch of the [Chase Manhattan Bank], and another 100,000 yen from the Tokyo branch of the Bank of Korea. The forged passport used to enter the country was handmade and the name of the country, Negusi Habesi Ghouloulouloul Esprit, was completely fictitious, and the characters written on it were also unclear, even after being authenticated by a specialist, as to what language it was written in.
The defendant spoke 14 countries, and in response to the investigation, he stated that he had come to Japan on orders from an Arab-related agency and was working for a U.S. intelligence agency, but there was no such fact, and the district prosecutor, troubled by the fact that the nationality of the defendant was unknown, prosecuted the case. The identity of the riddle was not revealed at the trial, and the English newspaper reported that he was a “mystery man”.
And that’s the solution to the mystery of the Man from Taured. Wow. Full credit to u/NatanaelAntonioli and u/taraiochi for their amazing detective work, and I’m delighted that we’re finally able to put this old chestnut to rest.
EDIT: u/vegetepal and u/tropical_chancer have pointed out that Tamanrasset is a real place in Algeria with a large Tuareg population. It’s probable, therefore, that Zegrus based the name and location of fictional “Tuared” on the Tuareg people and the city of Tamanrasset.
A rather different tale…
Just in at r/cryptids
Posted by u/Personal-Royal
I’m posting this because my curiosity has and probably will always get the better of me. I heard a story a couple years back from my best friends mom that was told by her grandmother. We’re all lovers of cryptids and urban legends so the tales we know are always shared with each other quite regularly. Well, this telling from her grandma was from back around the early 1960s, where they lived in a mobile home in the state of Kentucky. They lived pretty far back into the land where their property was surrounded by woods or corn fields. She said there were normal strange occurrences that happened, but one night she heard what sounded like rustling around outside their home. After a little bit of hearing the noise she said she opened the window to see what it was and she said there was a scarecrow running full speed away from their house and running into/through the cornfield while it screamed at the top of its lungs. I always love hearing this story and I wanted to do some research, but the only thing that comes up is the Bubák which has barely any information on it and is not from the States. I was curious if anyone else has ever heard or had their own experiences with something that resembles a scarecrow??
Well, now, that is one interesting happening!
