From a possible skunk ape sighting to an Area 51 interview with an alien, join us as we take a cautious peep at 10 paranormal sightings caught on camera.
10. Ghost Scares Dog
In 2008 a man began experiencing some strange things going on in his house. Every day after coming home from work he noticed that the door to his attic had been opened. He decided to set up a camera in his living room to see what was going on.
First his radio plays some eerie noises as it picks up interference. A few moments later, a cupboard door begins opening and closing by itself. Then a roll of kitchen paper flies off the coffee table. The man’s dogs begin looking off camera, clearly unsettled by what’s going on.
9. Floating City, China
In 2015, a floating city appeared in Foshan in the Guangdong province of China. Thousands of eyewitnesses saw this phenomena hovering in the sky. The footage was so striking that it even made the Chinese news.
After the video went viral, many theories began to spring up. Some say it’s part of a top secret operation called ‘Project Blue Beam’, a NASA funded initiative. The technology can reportedly project holograms, which could be used to stage alien invasions or visions of religious figures. Others have speculated that it’s a door to an alternate reality that opened for a period of time allowing stunned on lookers a glimpse of another world.
This isn’t the first time this has happened either. This footage was taken in 2011 in Huanshang City in China’s eastern Anhui province. The footage is even more vivid than the first, clearly showing a detailed city floating in the clouds.
Scientists and other level headed folk waded into the discussion claiming that the phenomena is an optical illusion known as Fata Morgana. This complex mirage occurs when light is distorted through air layers of different temperatures. This does seem like a plausible explanation however Fata Morgana normally occurs at a clear horizon point in polar regions, at sea or in the desert.
The above image is an example of Fata Morgana. In this photo, taken off the coast of Queensland, Australia, it looks as though the boat is hovering above the water. It’s far in the distance with a clear horizon line. The footage taken in China was in the middle of a city at an angle too sharp for Fata Morgana to occur.
What do you think? Is this an optical illusion, government testing or a gateway to another world? Let us know in the comments section below.
8. Chicago UFO
In August, 2016, a pilot took this footage on his phone while flying over Chicago, Illinois. It shows three balls of light hovering in the air beside the plane. They maintain a triangle formation then dramatically take off at extreme speeds below the aircraft:
7. Haunted Mines
These two clips come from a Youtube channel called ‘Exploring Abandoned Mines’. It’s a group of enthusiasts that explore old unused mines. The channel is not normally associated with paranormal happenings but there are two clips where some very unusual activity is captured on film.
This first one shows them exploring the Horton Mine in Nevada, U.S. At first the guy filming says the mine feels very unusual like a strange energy is around. Then climbing further into the abyss he finds a chain swinging on it’s own, back and forth:
Then in this second clip, we see the explorers descending into the Nikolaus Eureka Mine in California. Watching the whole clip, nothing obviously creepy happens. But on review, at the 4:25 mark, while looking up the shaft ladder to the left something very strange is lurking in the shadow. If you slow it down, it looks like the boot of someone climbing down the shaft:
6. Alien Interview Area 51
This footage surfaced in 1997. A man known only as ‘Victor’, claims to have obtained this video from the government. He says it’s an interview with an extraterrestrial being in Area 51:
5. Witch Caught on Film
This strange footage began circulating in December, 2014. Supposedly taken in Devpavan Ghats in India, this video shows a man driving down a dark mountain road. Legends tell of a witch that has been spotted for over 200 years in the very mountains he’s driving through. What he finds on the road is absolutely chilling:
4. Florida Skunk Ape
Uploaded in January, 2015, this clip was taken in Lettuce Lake Park, Tampa, Florida. The man who captured the footage initially thought he had spotted a bear and began filming. But when he later asked a park ranger about bears in the area they said that they tend to stay away from swampy areas. If you take a closer look it appears to have much longer arms than a bear and walks comfortably on its hind legs.
Many say a hominid, cryptid creature known as a ‘skunk ape’ roams the Florida area. It get its name from the foul smelling odour that it reportedly emanates. Numerous witnesses throughout Florida have reported seeing a big, hairy ape-like creature that runs on two legs. Could this be the skunk ape?
3. Prophet Summons UFO for ABC News
In 2009, a self-proclaimed prophet known as Yahweh demonstrated to an ABC news team that he can summon strange flying objects on command. The reporter begins the piece with understandable skepticism but before long the prophet Yahweh goes into some kind of prayer or trance. Then right there in front of the reporter, a strange glowing orb appears in the sky:
2. Ghost Leaving Body
There is very little information on this video. It appears to be some security footage from an old school or possibly a hospital. It looks as though there is someone sleeping on the bed but what the camera captures is terrifying:
1. Fresno Nightcrawler
This video was uploaded to Youtube in 2011. It’s supposedly filmed in Fresno, California near Yosemite national park. An elderly couple were having trouble with some trespassers on their property so they decided to set up a camera. When they reviewed the footage they had no idea what they had captured:
