Sculpture of a chicken-headed man. China, Tang dynasty, 7th-10th century [3300×4640]

This sculpture was found in a tomb at Gaochang, a Tang city on the edge of the Taklamakan Desert, where Chinese settlers mingled with Persian, Turkic, and other Central Asian peoples.

It portrays the buried man, who was born in the Year of the Chicken, and is thus depicted with a chicken’s head.

Museum. Painted clay, 80cm high.

Nifty keen. I’m putting it in cryptozoology despite the no doubt true explanation above, though, just because. Ha! There are cynocephalitic creatures, so why not aviacephs, too, eh?

 

Bigfoot Footage from Vancouver

This video is about some bigfoot footage taken on Vancouver Island in 2013, but only released recently. My breakdown (like most things I do) is a little different than most breakdowns out there. I try to examine the aspects, big and small, of the footage in general. To me, this film is less than conclusive, but it is still certainly interesting.

MonsterQuest: HORRIFYING 50-FOOT LAKE DEMON (S3, E9) | Full Episode | History

HISTORY
Oct 28, 2020

A fifty-foot monster is said to lurk beneath the isolated waters of North America. The stories from Lake Okanagan date back to the earliest First Nation peoples, who lived in fear of this terrifying creature, in Season 3, Episode 9, “Lake Demons.”

“MonsterQuest” takes a scientific look at reported sightings of cryptozoological creatures (cryptids) and paranormal entities around the world, including the Loch Ness Monster, Bigfoot, and werewolves.

Fifty feet is a world class length for a lake monster. Or any monster, really.

This is a very thorough investigation and well worth the watch.

It’s a coyote with mange. When I think Chupacabra, I think of this illustration that was shown in my local newspaper in the 90s. Or it’s appearance on Unsolved Mysteries. I don’t know why 15 or so years ago people started thinking that COYOTES WITH MANGE resembled any of the established descriptions of the Chupacabra.

The narrative may be unusual. But the details hold highly interesting characteristics.

Well, I can easily see what he’s talking about and I will agree that it is pretty compelling in support of the photo of a critter camp.

Knowledge of the typical primate behaviors in question here is not what one would call common, after all, in the general population. The photos show what is expected of a primate, and well, that is some solid corroboration.

Giant Manta Ray – The Largest Rays In The World

Ultimate Mysterious
Nov 15, 2020

The giant oceanic manta ray, also known as giant manta ray, is the largest type of ray in the world. They can reach a considerable size, with an average width of 4-5 meters and sometimes up to 7 meters. They can weigh up to 3,000 kilograms. It is dorsoventrally flattened and has large, triangular pectoral fins on either side of the disc. In front of the mouth, they have a pair of cephalic lobes which help direct more water and food into their mouths.

The coloring of the dorsal surface is black, dark brown, or steely blue, sometimes with a few pale spots and usually with a pale edge. They can be distinguished from other rays by their coloration. Each manta ray has its own unique color pattern variation that they can be identified by.

The giant manta rays mainly feed on plankton and are harmless to humans. In their gills they have structures called gill rakers that help to filter the plankton from the water. They are distributed in tropical, subtropical and temperate waters all over the world. There are reports of giant mantas living to at least 40 years, but little is known about their growth and development. The most significant threat to giant manta rays is commercial fishing, both being targeted and caught as bycatch.

Relaxing Diarrhea Sounds, Ten Hour Edition!

The Diarrhea God
Jun 22, 2019

First, some not-so-good news: my phone is currently broke as hell, so I may not be able to record any audio, or upload any videos until I can find a workaround. You asked for it, so here it is! Ten straight hours of non-stop diarrhea and explosive, wet toilet farts to help you relax and get to sleep. Pop this video on before you go to sleep and you’ll be dreaming of chocolate waterfalls, and toilet emergencies all night. You might even crap yourself while you sleep! This video contains the original “Relaxing Diarrhea Sounds” video, as well as many added audio clips from past videos, and some new sounds that I didn’t think were good enough to make it into a video, but because they’re soft, quiet, relaxing poop splats, I figured they’d work perfect in this video. I worked pretty damn hard and spent most of my evening last night working on this, so hopefully y’all enjoy this, and you’d better watch the whole thing! I dare anyone to actually listen to the full 10 hours. Maybe there’s a secret message hidden in the video and the only way to find it is to watch the whole thing entirely. Or maybe there’s nothing but glorious explosive ass in this video. One way to find out =) You will NOT find better than this anywhere you look, so this has to get a perfect rating of infinity/10

Fascinating.

Good shit.

I like this one. If this is not a visual creation but a real thing in the sky, then, I am of the opinion that this is a life form, probably, but not necessarily, based on plasma. Notice the behavior, so much like two worms in some sort of reproductive or whatever behavior – and the fluidity of motion.

That’s my take on it, for whatever it’s worth.

In the early 20s and on into later times in the annals of plasma research, it was oft-noted how the behavior of the plasma in their research containers behaved, on it’s own, as if it were alive. That has stuck with me and I find it fits well with this, more ‘organic’ sort of sighting.

Oh, yes, I found this post on my reddit feed:

Snake-Like UFO Divides into 2, Ejects Sphere – Bizarre Sighting filmed over Trenton, New Jersey

🛸UFO Sighted🛸

Over the years there have been unique and somewhat disturbing sightings of what looks like tubular, flexible objects, best described as snake UFOs. Simply enter “Snake UFO” into google search, and click on the image tab to see the results.

When we first saw this footage, that is what we did, as it was mentioned by others on our team that this looked like older footage, but we didn’t find anything.

This sighting has an organic feel to it, the movements and appearance.

Some may say they are balloons however, there is nothing we can compare to in order to review that as a hypothesis.

What do you think? Do you have any interesting backstories to such ‘snake-like’ UFOs..??

This is exciting stuff to me. Ever since I heard of it in the 80s. It just rings true and fires up the imagination. I fully accept that some sightings of aerial oddness are indeed alive and living right here with us.

Here is some reportage from New Scientist in 2003 noting the spheres it forms exhibit every feature of the life checklist.

Plasma blobs hint at new form of life

17 September 2003

Physicists have created blobs of gaseous plasma that can grow, replicate and communicate – fulfilling most of the traditional requirements for biological cells. Without inherited material they cannot be described as alive, but the researchers believe these curious spheres may offer a radical new explanation for how life began.

Most biologists think living cells arose out of a complex and lengthy evolution of chemicals that took millions of years, beginning with simple molecules through amino acids, primitive proteins and finally forming an organised structure. But if Mircea Sanduloviciu and his colleagues at Cuza University in Romania are right, the theory may have to be completely revised. They say cell-like self-organisation can occur in a few microseconds.

The researchers studied environmental conditions similar to those that existed on the Earth before life began, when the planet was enveloped in electric storms that caused ionised gases called plasmas to form in the atmosphere.

They inserted two electrodes into a chamber containing a low-temperature plasma of argon – a gas in which some of the atoms have been split into electrons and charged ions. They applied a high voltage to the electrodes, producing an arc of energy that flew across the gap between them, like a miniature lightning strike.

Sanduloviciu says this electric spark caused a high concentration of ions and electrons to accumulate at the positively charged electrode, which spontaneously formed spheres (Chaos, Solitons & Fractals, vol 18, p 335). Each sphere had a boundary made up of two layers – an outer layer of negatively charged electrons and an inner layer of positively charged ions.

Trapped inside the boundary was an inner nucleus of gas atoms. The amount of energy in the initial spark governed their size and lifespan. Sanduloviciu grew spheres from a few micrometres up to three centimetres in diameter.

Split in two

A distinct boundary layer that confines and separates an object from its environment is one of the four main criteria generally used to define living cells. Sanduloviciu decided to find out if his cells met the other criteria: the ability to replicate, to communicate information, and to metabolise and grow.

He found that the spheres could replicate by splitting into two. Under the right conditions they also got bigger, taking up neutral argon atoms and splitting them into ions and electrons to replenish their boundary layers.

Finally, they could communicate information by emitting electromagnetic energy, making the atoms within other spheres vibrate at a particular frequency. The spheres are not the only self-organising systems to meet all of these requirements. But they are the first gaseous “cells”.

Sanduloviciu even thinks they could have been the first cells on Earth, arising within electric storms. “The emergence of such spheres seems likely to be a prerequisite for biochemical evolution,” he says.

Temperature trouble

That view is “stretching the realms of possibility,” says Gregoire Nicolis, a physical chemist at the University of Brussels. In particular, he doubts that biomolecules such as DNA could emerge at the temperatures at which the plasma balls exist.

However, Sanduloviciu insists that although the spheres require high temperature to form, they can survive at lower temperatures. “That would be the sort of environment in which normal biochemical interactions occur.”

But perhaps the most intriguing implications of Sanduloviciu’s work are for life on other planets. “The cell-like spheres we describe could be at the origin of other forms of life we have not yet considered,” he says. Which means our search for extraterrestrial life may need a drastic re-think. There could be life out there, but not as we know it.

BepiColombo Venus Flyby

About Space Only
Oct 22, 2020

A sequence of images taken by one of the monitoring cameras on board the European-Japanese BepiColombo mission to Mercury, as the spacecraft made a close approach of Venus on October 15, 2020.

This sequence of 64 images was captured by Monitoring Camera 2 onboard the Mercury Transfer Module from 40 minutes before until 15 minutes after closest approach of 10,720 km from Venus. The images were taken every 52 seconds. The camera provides black-and-white snapshots in 1024 x 1024 pixel resolution.

In these images, Venus appears in the top right behind the Mercury Planetary Orbiter’s magnetometer boom and moves across the field of view towards the spacecraft’s medium gain antenna. The shape of the terminator — the boundary between the fully illuminated planet (day) and the fully shadowed area (night) — clearly changes, showing that the spacecraft’s path curves around from the dayside to the nightside.

The images have been lightly processed to enhance the brightness and contrast. The illuminated disk of Venus is so bright that it is saturated in these images, even using the shortest possible camera exposure time. At the planet’s terminator, some very faint structures are visible, but these appear to be due to ghosting in the camera optics rather than features in the atmosphere of Venus. There is also some horizontal striping in the images due to effects in the electronics.

The gravity assist maneuver was the first at Venus and the second of nine flybys overall, which help steer the spacecraft on course for Mercury. During its seven-year cruise to the smallest and innermost planet of the Solar System, BepiColombo makes one flyby at Earth, two at Venus and six at Mercury to brake against the gravitational pull of the Sun in order to enter orbit around Mercury.

BepiColombo, which comprises ESA’s Mercury Planetary Orbiter and the Mercury Magnetospheric Orbiter of the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA), is scheduled to reach its target orbit around the smallest and innermost planet of the Solar System in 2025.

Cliffs in Ancient Ice on Mars

mars ice cliffs

Scientists have come to realize that, just below the surface, about one third of Mars is covered in ice. We study this ice to learn about Mars’ ancient climate and astronauts’ future water supplies.

Sometimes we see the buried ice because cliffs form like the one in this image. On the brownish, dusty cliff wall, the faint light-blue-colored ice shows through. Some of these cliffs change before our eyes and boulders of ice can tumble downhill. We take repeat images of these scenes to check for changes like this.

Devil’s Lake Monster

The Devil’s Lake Monster is a cryptid said to inhabit Devil’s Lake near Lincoln City, Oregon. It has been described as a large, octopus-like creature, though it has also been likened to a large fish and a plesiosaur.

Stories of a monster in the lake date back to the local Native American tribes. There are several accounts of canoes on the lake being attacked and men being pulled under the surface. In 1950, a globster was discovered on the shore of the lake that was nicknamed “Old Hairy.”

This UFO video was just released at MUFON. It was filmed over Utica, New York on 3rd September 2020.

Very strange. Yes…

Real or Memorex…?

Utican UFOs are weird.

Amateur footage showing a supposed Pterosaur recently flying over Boise, Idaho, USA. Is it the work of video editing, or perhaps the return of the extinct reptile!

A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away , this happened.

Time-Lapse of Supernova in NGC 2525

HubbleESA
Oct 1, 2020

This video shows a unique time-lapse of the supernova in galaxy NGC 2525. The supernova is captured by Hubble in exquisite detail within this galaxy in the lower left portion of the frame. It appears as a very bright star located on the outer edge of one of its beautiful swirling spiral arms. This new and unique time-lapse of Hubble images shows the once bright supernova initially outshining the brightest stars in the galaxy, before fading into obscurity during the telescope’s observations. This time-lapse consists of observations taken over the course of one year, from February 2018 to February 2019. NGC 2525 is located nearly 70 million light-years from Earth and is part of the constellation of Puppis in the southern hemisphere. Hubble captured this series of images of NGC2525 in 2018 as part of one of its major investigations; measuring the expansion rate of the Universe, which can help answer fundamental questions about our Universe’s very nature.

The Galaxy is called NGC 2525 and the supernova somewhere in that Galaxy happened 70 million years ago , but because of light speed being so slow we and not the Dinosaurs get to see it today… sweet.

In January 2018, a bright explosion of light was spotted at the outskirts of a galaxy called NGC 2525, 70 million light-years away. In February of 2018, the Hubble Space Telescope turned its Wide Field Camera 3 in the flash’s direction, and started taking pictures.

For an entire year, until February 2019, Hubble continued to take images of the progression of the supernova as it faded over time, until it was no longer visible.

The space telescope just missed the supernova’s peak brightness of about 5 billion times the light of the Sun, but it was still gleaming extremely brightly when Hubble tuned in.

Boom !

Commiserations to any space brothers and sisters in the vicinity at the time.

Fantabulous. Try to imagine the power… the incredible amount of energy released in these events. Difficult to do!

A blast from the past:

Meanwhile, back in the 1950s:
“(john phillip) Bessor later stated that, in his view, UFOs were a form of living creature (which he christened an ideoplasm) composed of a highly attenuated substance, enabling them to materialise or dematerialise at will, utilising telekinetic energy for propulsion. As would be echoed by Constable in relation to his critters, Bessor opined that these entities must be capable of becoming visible, invisible, and changing colour, all very rapidly. He even submitted his thoughts to the U.S. Air Force, and, remarkably, was informed by them that they considered his notion to be “one of the most intelligent theories we have received” regarding the possible nature and identity of UFOs.”

AC Doyle postulated those many years before in a book of short stories “Tales of Terror” if memory serves a really fun book along with The White Company among his largely forgotten works !
