Loveland Lights in the Sky

Q: On the evening of March 22, 2009, at approximately 19:45 hours, I was traveling southbound on I-25 approximately five miles north of the Loveland, CO area when I noticed a set of lights in the sky that were approximately 250’ above the ground.The craft was perfectly stationary as it “hovered” in the air, neither tilting nor moving in any specific direction. As I traveled closer I was able to see that its dimmed lights were part of an aircraft/mechanical object. Did I just have a close encounter? A: A hovering craft spotted over a place called Loveland (the land…

Books and Other Gift Shop Goods Moving on Their Own

Q: A book hit a woman in the back, a 10 by 10 inch hardback titled “The Confederate Navy: The Ships, Men and Organization 1861-1865.” Books aren’t the only gift shop goods moving on their own: On the front counter, key rings, pins and whistles hang upon a square, black spindle. Workers say sometimes it spins without anyone touching it, and the motion is not spurred by a fan or air conditioner. Bruce Smith, the Port Columbus National Civil War Naval Museum’s executive director, would not go so far as to say the place is haunted. If it isn’t haunted,…

UFO Resembles a Ford Station Wagon

Q: An ABC morning show recently revealed a woman was cut off on the highway to her home at about 4am by two alien beings in a spaceship shaped like a Ford station wagon–before it took off surrounded by green, blue and red flames. She took off, speeding home and slammed the door shut behind her. What kind of UFO resembles a Ford station wagon? A: The only experience I have of a Ford station wagon passing anyone moving was in National Lampoon’s Vacation. As far as the colored flames, my guess is it was the highway patrol chasing the…

Ghost Erasing Photos?

Q: I read where a guy vacationing in New Brunswick took a picture at the mouth of one of the caves along the cliffs there. He later saw that besides his daughters and a couple of tourists, there was the glowing image of a man who hadn’t been there when the photograph was taken. The photographer said he doesn’t believe in ghosts, but has no idea how the image appeared. After sharing it with a media source, the image on his phone went dark. Could the apparition have erased the evidence of his existence? A: I’d like to know how…

Missing Time after a Trip to Walgreen’s

Q: I was at a neighborhood gathering where the conversation of time-lapse came up. This couple shared a story of how they recently went together to a Walgreens, their doctor’s office and several other places with no recollection of any of them. I have heard of examples of people missing time for a few minutes or longer, but not for an entire day. This is disturbing. Are you aware of similar events taking place over an entire day? A: If Walgreens was the first stop, where perhaps they picked up a prescription, what disturbs me most is that they drove…

The Life of People Stricken with Capgras’ Syndrome

Q: Imagine, if you will, that one by one your friends and family (the people closest to you) are being removed and replaced with exact duplicates. Although they are identical in appearance and manner, you are certain that these people are not your loved ones. While most people would become deeply paranoid in such a scenario, there are some individuals who experience such things every day without fear… and just wonder, why? Such is the life of people stricken with Capgras’ Syndrome. Are you faliliar with this? A: Of course. But then, how do I know you are who you…

Animal Communication

Q:  I read an article about “animal communicators,”  a growing number of people who say they have the psychic ability to communicate telepathically with various animals. Primates, most notably Koko, a gorilla who was taught sign language and has a vocabulary of more than 600 words may serve as an example. Koko is able to articulate basic desires as what and when she wants to eat, how she “feels” about many things. Does this prove it is possible to communicate with other animals, like our pets? A: Most men don’t communicate as well as Koko about their feelings. My dog…

JFK’s Ghost & More . . .

Q:  I read an article that claims humans have reached their analytical peak and won’t get any smarter. I look around me and have concluded that indeed people seem to be getting dumb and dumber. It’s like they have reverted back to time when humans were consumed with basic desires like food and drink and lusted for spending their free time betting on gladiator battles. Could it be humans are doomed to a future of grunt work followed by weekend warrior banality? A: Wow–most of what you said went way over my head. Q: The definition of UFO is Unidentified…

Ghosts of Former U.S. Presidents and Others

Q: 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington, D.C. is not only home to the current President of the United States, it is also home to several former Presidents who occasionally decide to make their presences known there, despite the fact that they are dead. President Harrison is said to be heard rummaging around in the attic of the White House, while Andrew Jackson is thought to haunt his White House bedroom. The most frequently sighted presidential ghost has been that of Abraham Lincoln. Any thoughts? A: I have plenty of thoughts, just none on ghosts of former U.S. presidents.   Q:…

Crop Circles and Little People

Q: I understand that a small farm recently had crop circles discovered in the corn field. Investigators do not believe, based on their field work, that the Lawton formation was mechanically made by people. While more people went to investigate the phenomenon, it was destroyed by a young female neighbor who drove through the field with her truck and did donuts. She told one neighbor she thought one of the aliens got her pregnant. Could this be true? A: Sure. Women impregnated by aliens commonly crave strange foods and demonstrate rare forms of morning sickness. Often, donuts are involved. Q:…

UFO Sighting at Myrtle Beach

Q: I had a very odd experience in Myrtle Beach, SC, in September 2003. My wife and I went there for a week on vacation. Around 12:30am, my wife was asleep and I was up watching television. Our balcony door was open, so I could still hear the ocean. Looking out, I spotted a large, bright, red object as large as the full moon hovering way out over the ocean, just above the horizon. Then, out of nowhere, two military fighter jets flew over and made a beeline straight toward the object, which suddenly burst straight up into the sky…

UFO In the Middle of Nowhere

Q: I was walking back to my motor home after wild boar hunting in an unpopulated area in Texas last year. The sky was clear; wind calm and the sun had just set when I saw what I believe was a UFO. The object approached from the south-southwest and while moving north-northeast, passed almost directly overhead making no sound whatsoever. I estimate its altitude to be somewhere about 800 feet and its airspeed speed approximately 30 mph. I aimed my rifle at it and through the rifle scope, which was set on 8.5 power, I could clearly see surface detail…

Are We the Only Planet with Intelligent Life?

Q: I was wondering where you stand concerning UFOs. While many have claimed to have had a close encounter, even a probing, the videos are still indiscernible and not definitive proof of existence. On the other hand, as Tom Cruise stated, wouldn’t it be arrogant to assume we are the only planet with intelligent life on it? A: It’s funny how, with the technological advancements we’ve made and vast the number of individuals who own sophisticated cameras, there has been a decrease in the number of recorded sightings. It’s easier to alter tape than digital recordings. This tends to leave…

UFOs Seen Hovering Above Illawong Beach

Q: I heard about an Australian, Donna Weller, who told The Daily Mercury newspaper that she had seen a UFO hovering above Illawong Beach following her along the Bruce Highway to Rockhampton. “There were three of them,” she said. “One behind the car and two to the side. It was unbelievable.” I’m a bit scared to tell you the truth. Donna captured video footage of the unidentified tailgaters. Do you believe this encounter happened? A: I’ve yet to see the video, reserving opinion. However, Aussies are well known for their humor and beer consumption, especially the women.   Q: A…

Don’t Disturb the Hidden People

Q: I read about a woman, an elf seer, in Boston, Erla Stefansdottir, who named elves, gnomes, dwarves, angels, light fairies, and “the hidden people” as all belonging to classes of what she called elfin beings. Any of the above named entities, Ms. Stefansdottir said, “can get quite upset if we ruin their houses or go against their wishes and we have to face the consequences. They can put a spell on us.” Do you believe “hidden people” exist under the earth and place spells on those who disturb their dwellings? A: I know little people with some pretty serious…

Leash-free

POOCH CORRECT NEWS: The town of Hillsboro, Oregon has built a leash-free dog park named for Hondo, a police dog killed ten years ago chasing a suspect. A fire hydrant was painted as an American flag, as a further tribute to him. The hydrant had to be removed after a number of people complained that dogs did not respect the flag, refusing to salute and by doing what they normally do on fire hydrants. HAUTE CUISINE NEWS: Tim Janus, of New York City, has won the world burrito-eating championship by eating 10-3/4 eighteen-ounce burritos in 12 minutes. Other competitors included…

Tennessee is Bigfoot Country

Q: Tennessee is known for many things, from Nashville’s Country Music and Tennessee Whiskey to the beautiful fall foliage of the Appalachian Mountains. But unknown to many is the fact Tennessee is Bigfoot Country. In the County of Monroe and the town of Madisonville, claims of Bigfoot exist. A book describes the Tennessee Bigfoot, their mating habits and rituals. Are there photos to back up these claims? A: None that we know of. It seems they have not socially evolved enough to sit for a family portrait.   Q: According to some, we live on the earth’s crust, while there…

Definition of Ghosts and Possession

Q: In quantum terms, the device with which you measure a phenomenon has a direct correlation with not only your anticipation, but with your result. Perhaps we have such individuated mechanisms that while not psychological in the strictest sense of measurement but with the context of relationships in our conceptual models, can provide us with unintended results, as we have attenuated our perception toward a bias that allows these interior relationships to manifest in cognition toward an sensate external manifestation, if there is something outside of our visual field that is already present in a theoretical perpetuity outside of the…
