by Sarah Estep FATE Magazine 

My experience with other dimensions goes back to the early age of three or four. Obviously, at that age, I knew nothing about different realities, but frequently I would have unusual waking experiences, in that everything would look strange when I opened my eyes.

All the furniture, the room, the hall were more real. There was added depth to each. I enjoyed this; it gave me a tingly kind of feeling, and after a minute or two, things would revert to normal. Since I thought everyone experienced this sort of thing, I never mentioned it. Forty years later in a book about psychic phenomena, I read a brief reference to it. The author called it "binocular vision," and said it was as if the person were looking through the wrong end of a pair of binoculars. This is an apt description. I know in the field of ophthalmology there is the same term, but that has nothing to do with my experiences.

Two Strange Men

One night when I was about five, these experiences became terrifying. Opening my eyes, I saw to my right two men standing in front of my bedroom dresser, their backs to me. My mother always kept my bedroom door open to the hall, with a light burning, so I could see them clearly. The men looked normal except for the way they were dressed. Both of them had on knee breeches, long-sleeved shirts, and vests, and one had a polka-dotted bandanna tied around his head. They seemed unaware of me but they were fascinated with the objects on my dresser, picking up one thing after another and examining it closely. I screamed.

My parents both came running in as I sobbingly told them there were two men in my room. They assured me it was my imagination; I'd had a bad dream. In the bright light, I had to admit the men were not there. Giving me a kiss and pat, they returned to bed.

Almost immediately, the two men returned. Now they seemed aware of me and came and stood silently beside my bed, looking down at me. I pretended to be asleep but looked at them through barely opened eyes. After a moment, they went back to the dresser, murmuring softly to each other. A small box of pennies was shaken and once more I screamed.

My parents returned, and still crying, I told them the men had come back. I begged them to look in my closet and under my bed, which they did. There was no one there. Continuing to sob, I said I knew they were here somewhere, so my mother said she would sleep with me. As soon as she fell asleep, the men returned. Again, they stood beside me, looking down at my mother and me. Although terrified, I pretended to be asleep.

Why didn't I awaken my mother to see these two strangers standing a foot away? I knew she'd not be able to see them.

In a few minutes, the men left and went downstairs. I could hear them walking around. One of them began playing loud crashing chords on the piano. The other picked up a favorite toy. It was a bird on a stick, and as you whirled it around in the air, it made a whistling sound.

Why didn't I awaken my mother to hear these noises? I knew she would not be able to hear them.

Morning came and my parents and I began to dress for the day. While doing this, I heard the chimes on the front door. Going to my bedroom window, I saw the two men walk down the front steps, turn to the left on the sidewalk, and continue walking until they were out of sight.

The Men Come Calling

My mother and father, hearing the chimes, went to the top of the stairs. Mary, a girl in her 20s, was living with us at the time while going to secretarial school. She slept in another part of the house and was unaware of what had happened during the night. One of Mary's chores was to get breakfast for us each morning. Mother called down the stairs and asked who was at the door. Mary, who appeared in shock, replied, "When the chimes sounded, I opened the door and there were two of the strangest looking men I've ever seen, so I slammed the door on them."

Both parents looked at me as if perhaps seeing me for the first time. Nothing further was ever said, but I know now that this was something so far out of their normal reality they didn't want to examine it further.

Unlike the previous experiences with binocular vision, which lasted just a minute or two, this remained for most of the day. Although no "extra" people were seen, everything in my house had that added dimension to it. By late afternoon it began fading away, and after a night of untroubled sleep, I awoke the next morning to my normal world. Never again did I have such an experience, and my binocular vision happened less frequently and ended completely within a year.

Where Did They Come From?

Strangely, my son Bob, now in his 40s, had a very similar experience when he was five. We have a strong psychic link between us, and although the instances don't happen frequently, when they do, they are a wonderment. One evening Bob woke up screaming. Charlie and I ran to his room. Bob was sitting up in bed crying as hard as only a five-year-old can. "There are animals all over my bed and all over the floor," he said as he pointed here and there.

Charlie told him he was just having a bad dream. "No, No, Dad, I see them. Look, there is an animal! He's climbing up on my bed."

Bob was terrified. Looking at his eyes, I could tell he did see, so very clearly, what I had seen 30 years earlier, except in my case, it had been two men. He was trying to push them off his bed. I told Charlie I felt Bob believed he was seeing what he claimed. He had no objection when I suggested we take Bob to bed with us for the rest of the night. After a final sob, Bob calmed down and slept until morning.

Do I believe the animals were actually in his room as the men were in mine? It could be. I believe Bob went a step too far, as I had done so very long ago, and entered their dimension for a few minutes.

As a result of this and other early experiences, I have always felt that all life, all consciousness, whatever world it exists in, is one. We cannot separate ourselves from each other, even from other worlds. We are all a part of whatever is.

Marcen Journal, January 1979, Vol. II, No. 1

What is being said in the broadcast is constantly being repeated in current contacts. Some of you have heard this before but for the new people it was phenomenal when it happened and applies to today.

Note: A number of people have asked for additional information on the so-called voice from space that blacked out the BBC's Southern TV station for 5 1/2 minutes at 5:12 pm GMT on November 26, 1977 while the following message was delivered slowly and deliberately in a calm authoritative tone. The message interrupted a news bulletin being read by Ivor Mills. The BBC has come up with no positive solutions to the interruption, simply calling it a hoax. MARCEN obtained the message transcript from the BBC for the benefit of the members. The full text, which is reproduced here, is not believed to have been published in the United States previously. The amount of expensive equipment needed to overpower a powerful television transmitter takes the incident out of the realm of a college prank. If indeed it was an elaborate hoax as we suspect it was, it appears to be more on the scale of something perpetrated by some government or agency of one. (and what if it wasn't!)


This is the voice of Gramaha, the representative of the Asta Galactic Command speaking to you. For many years now you have seen us as lights in the skies. We speak to you now in peace and wisdom as we have done to your brothers and sisters all over this, your planet earth.

We come to warn you of the destiny of your race and your worlds so that you may communicate to your fellow beings the course you must take to avoid the disasters which threaten your worlds and the beings on our worlds around you. This is in order that you may share in the great awakening, as the planet passes into the New Age of Aquarius. The new age can be a time of great peace and evolution for your race, but only if your rulers are made aware of the evil forces that can overshadow their judgements.

Be still now and listen, for your chance may not come again. For many years your scientists, governments and generals have not heeded our warnings; they have continued to experiment with the evil forces of what you call nuclear energy. Atomic bombs can destroy the earth and the beings of your sister worlds, in a moment. The wastes from atomic power systems will poison your planet for many thousands of your years to come. We, who have followed the path of evolution for far longer than you, have long since realized this - that atomic energy is always directed against life. It has no peaceful application. Its use, and research into its use, must be ceased at once, or you all risk destruction. All weapons of evil must be removed.

The time of conflict is now past and the race of which you are a part may proceed to the highest planes of evolution if you show yourselves worthy to do this. You have but a short time to learn to live together in peace and goodwill. Small groups all over the planet are learning this, and exist to pass on the light of the dawning new age to you all. You are free to accept or reject their teachings, but only those who learn to live in peace will pass to the higher realms of spiritual evolution.

Hear now the voice of Gramaha, the representative of the Asta Galactic Command speaking to you. Be aware also that there are many false prophets and guides operating on your world. They will suck your energy from you - the energy you all know as money and will put it to evil ends giving you worthless dross in return. Your inner divine self will protect you from this. You must learn to be sensitive to the voice within, that can tell you what is truth, and what is confusion, chaos and untruth. Learn to listen to the voice of truth which is within you, and you will lead yourselves on to the path of evolution.

This is our message to you our dear friends. We have watched you growing for many years as you too have watched our lights in your skies. You know that we are here, and that there are more beings on and around your earth than your scientists admit. We are deeply concerned about you and your path towards the light, and will do all we can to help you. Have no fears, seek only to know yourselves and live in harmony with the ways of your planet earth.

We of the Asta Galactic Command thank you for your attention. We are now leaving the planes of your existence. May you be blessed by the supreme love and truth of the Cosmos.

Something we haven't heard much about recently but what was a big deal in years gone past.

DEFINITION:  Angel hair is a silky, sticky substance that falls from the sky in thin strands that sometimes look like spider webs.  It is very unstable and degrades in oxygen.

What the Believers Say:  Angel hair is some kind of manifestation from another dimension, or a supernatural realm. or it is a substance that falls from UFOs.  Some psychics claim to sense the presence of spirits during and following an angel hair manifestation.

You can touch it, but you can't hold it without it sublimating into nothing.  You can see it, but sometimes it doesn't show up in photographs taken of it.  It looks like spider webs, but there are never any spiders around when it appears.  It often appears after UFO sightings, yet many people who have never seen a UFO report finding it in their yard.  Some manifestations occur in the presence of many witnesses; some are reported by only a single person.  Charles Darwin reported seeing it fall  on his ship, the Beagle, in 1832.

It is called "angel hair" and it has been manifesting on earth for centuries, perhaps eons.  One of the earliest known reports is from the early eighteenth century (September 21, 1741) recent sightings are commonplace, although often not reported.  Some people experience it all the time; others have never even heard of it.  Sometimes it falls on an entire town; sometimes it appears on people's houses.  It can fall in such quantity as to cover cars and entire fields, or it can appear as a single gossamer strand.

In October 1955, a retired Navy man reported seeing ten silvery balls darting about the sky in North Carolina, followed by a fall of angel hair that covered a field and the telephone lines.

On September 21, 1997 (another September 21 sighting), people in Santa Cruz, California reported seeing strands of angel hair falling from the sky.  One witness described them as "three-foot strands.. of a translucent fibrous substance."

On Sunday, August 9, 2001 in Quirindi, South Wales, Australia, multiple witnesses saw approximately twenty silver balls flitting through the sky, followed by a fall of angel hair.

There are many other reports of this weird substance falling from the sky, and what almost all of them have in common is that they are made by credible people, often with corroborating accounts from other witnesses.

So what is this stuff?  And where does it come from?

Several people have managed to preserve a sample of angel hair before it dissolved into nothing.  Some have paid labs to test it and it was often shown to be made of silicon, magnesium, calcium, and boron - but the source of the substance has consistently been reported as "Inconclusive."  The elements of angel hair are common to earth, but the actual substance itself is an anomaly that has yet to be conclusively identified and its origin determined.

Could it be cobwebs from migrating spiders?  Spiders don't fly, yet skeptics claim that spiders are carried aloft by winds, and then discharge the webs while in the air.  There are reports of angel hair covering entire backyards, and draping like tinsel over great lengths of electrical lines.  It would seem that it would take a great many spiders (perhaps millions) floating through the air in a group to create such an outpouring of webs.  I, for one, have never seen giant clouds of floating spiders.  There may be some who have, but such reports have yet to show up in the literature.

Could angel hair be some kind of material created inside tornadoes or plasma vortices, carried a distance, and then dropped?

Maybe, but there are many, many accounts of angel hair occurring in perfectly calm weather, with no reports of turbulent weather for miles.

Can angel hair be a discharge from UFOs?  The connection between UFO sightings and subsequent falling angel hair is strong.  And yet, no one has reported ever seeing a UFO actually dropping the stuff, nor has anyone ever photographed such an event.

It is said that the veil between other dimensions and other realms, is thin, and that sometimes does appear, allowing some to see and experience things alien to our world.  Ghosts, UFOs, manifestations of the Virgin Mary, sightings of creatures like Bigfoot and the Loch Ness monster, and channeled information have all been alleged to come from dimensions parallel, or perhaps above or below our own.

Could angel hair be from such a realm?

Can we be seeing something that is undoubtedly alien to us, but which might be as commonplace "somewhere else" as rain is to us in our world?

Or is it nothing but cobwebs from flying spiders?
The above is from the Weird 100

Angel hair was reported at the Miracle at Fatima on the 13th of September and October 1917.

The most reported incidence occurred in Oloron, France in 1952.

On October 27, 1954, Gennaro Lucetti and Pietro Lastrucci stood on the balcony of a hotel in St. Mark's Square in Venice and saw two "shining spindles" flying across the sky leaving a trail of the angel hair.
In the Portuguese city of Évora on November 2, 1959, angel hair was collected and analyzed at the microscope by local school director and later by armed forces technicians and scientists of the University of Lisbon. Conclusions were not possible although it was formed, apparently, by a small organism featuring 10 'arms' stretching from a central core. It was advanced that it could be a single-celled organism of some kind. This event followed the sighting, by the population of the city, of several UFOs. Angel hair was also spotted in the same day, at the Air Force Base of Sintra, several kilometers to the north.

Sasquatch Are Here, Says Outdoorsman

by Bernice Tick
Citizen staff Prince George CitizenMonday

A Prince George man whose greatest passion has been hunting for big game admits he's hooked on proving the existence of Sasquatch. Leo Selzer, who has spent 41 years hunting in the bush around Prince George, is convinced the illusive creatures are around, and he spends as much time as he can in the bush area where he believes they live. He says he's had one pretty clear sighting and several occasions when he's convinced he was communicating with his" furry friends."

In the mid- 1980s when Selzer was moose hunting in the Gregg Creek area west of the city, he did his loud moose calls that bring in the bulls during rutting season. "after a few calls I heard a response -- like someone banging on a tree about a kilometer away. I would call. Then right away, bang, bang. A small black bear appeared, wandering towards the banging sounds. The bear stopped and stood up on its hind legs looking towards a tall fir tree, and then all of a sudden it hightailed in the opposite direction toward me, veered off and went over the ridge."

It was then that Selzer saw a tall, dark-coloured creature step out from the cover of the fir tree into the open, and then quickly stepped behind the tree and was gone," said Selzer, noting that logged-off has little human activity.

In 2000 Selzer was again hunting at Gregg Creek when, at about 400 metres, he spotted what he first thought was a large bear standing on its hind legs watching the hunters. "It was standing next to a large, broken-off fir tree and was about the same dark colour, maybe greyish around its shoulders and on its chest. Thinking it could be a grizzly, I kept a close eye on it, watching it shift its weight from one leg to the other a couple of times for about a half hour. "All of a sudden it was gone, but later I realized a bear would never stand on its hind legs for that long without getting down and back up again," said Selzer.

After studying that area closely, he's concluded the creatures leave landmarks and directional signs by piling trees into X marks behind closely knit trees, and bending and shaping spindly trees into arches and shaped pointers carefully threaded through willow tops. He believes Sasquatch eat bark from trees like aspens, and has seen markings showing large fingernails and teeth were used to remove bark. He's also seen large footprints, but hasn't been fortunate to be able to photograph then fresh or complete. "One footprint, going up a grade, was pretty clear, about 13 to 14 inches long, eight inches wide at the heel, and about six inches wide at the top of the ball of the foot. There were indications of possible toe impressions about one to three inches beyond the ball of the foot."

In 1994 on the Hoodoo Lakes road he could hear three individual voices give out a holler or two which was responded to by "jabbering type of language." "I thought it must be some drunken people back there on a bush road or something, but I later found out there is no road or clearing in that area."

In mid-June, Selzer came across an area in the Gregg Creek, about 300 to 400 yards long, containing a series of blinds and shelters, and tepee-like frameworks he believes were built by a Sasquatch. The blinds are waist to shoulder height with logs and trees pushed together to form a lean-to like structure. "The frameworks, up to 50 feet high, are made with long spindly trees intricately intertwined to form the structure., "said Selzer.

Brian Vike in Houston, who reports on unidentified flying objects and such matters, has received reports from residents about Sasquatch sightings in the Buck Flats area. "Two Houston women, driving up Buck Flats road, were startled recently when a large animal walked upright across the road in front of their vehicle. "The animal, described much like a Sasquatch, made long strides into the forest, but did not turn to look back at the women."

He said a camping party at Silverhorne Lake reported hearing chilling screams in the night coming from around the lake, which cannot be associated with the known animals in the region. "

One other sighting was reported on the Morice River Road when two people fishing witnessed a large two-legged animal on the opposite bank of a river walk slowly into the forest and disappear," said Vike.

American William Dranginis, said he saw a Bigfoot once - hairy, 7 feet tall, and sprinting through the woods of Virginia.The 12-second sighting changed the life of Dranginis, who outfitted a 24-foot mobile veterinary clinic as a Bigfoot Primate Research lab. Equipped with scopes, radios and a Night-Sight camera that can detect an animal in the dark at 800 yards away, he heads out at least two weekends a month. But still no second sighting for Dranginis, who would like to push legislation to protect the creatures. "Do not shoot it," said Selzer. "They mean no harm, but they are curious, and incredibly intelligent beings."

Selzer's latest reported sighting on July 20 came from a visiting couple from Saskatoon. They told SelzerSelzer, who has added his investigation of the area to his website:

On March 12, 2012, Coast to Coast am Coast Insider, Grant Cameron was the guest for the last two hours.  He lives in Canada.

In 1975 Grant lived above the Canadian border in a little town.  Every night they would see UFOs.  The people from the town would gather outside to watch them.  Thirty years later he went back to the town and looked up the man who was in charge of the local airport back in 1975.  He asked the man why he thought there were so many sightings back in 1975.  He told Grant that it was because of all the missile silos along the border of the US/Canada.  

At that time there was only one anti ballistic missile silo for nuclear weapons and that one was about 80 miles south of where Grant lived back at that time.  It was shut down and the sightings stopped.


Grant calls it Phenomenology.  The aliens pick up on what people are thinking.  Wilbur Smith wrote an article on it.  He was head of the UFO Department in Canada.  He said that the aliens are here not to take over the world, only to watch. If nuclear weapons are to be used they will shut them down immediately because what happens here affects everything in the universe.  They interject ideas into persons heads.  

After Wilbur Smith wrote that article in 1950 two men in black suits showed up in 1951 at his office in Canada.  That was the beginning of MK Ultra.  They told him not to publish the article.


From the beginning in 1950 the US government didn’t know what was going on but there is a pattern.  The government knew there was mental phenomena taking place.  They felt the aliens were controlling us somehow or directing what was happening.  Many persons have felt the same thing.

In 1947 crash at Roswell

1950 - government knew mental phenomena was taking place

1952 - Contactees

1961 - Abductions

1967 - Cattle mutilations

1970 - Landing traces, now they have stopped

1980 - Crop circles

1990 - Triangle shaped craft

2002 - Big triangular ships.

Now we are seeing lighted ship/orbs all over the world.  Discs are controlled by aliens, we are the pawns.  Grant says it is important to be aware of consciousness.  Unless you have a 6th sense you will never know what is going on.  They are not here to take over. Nothing is random from the very beginning.

Congressman Stephen Schiff died of an unknown skin disease as did another woman who worked with him and Stephen Greer.  Stephen Greer also came down with the disease but somehow overcame it.  Stephen Schiff was angry because even with his clout he could not get answers as to what was going on.  He kept pushing and pushing and then he died under mysterious circumstances.

In 1981 Barry Goldwater wrote letters to different senators to try to find out what was going on, he kept pushing too insisting on knowing.  Grant found letters he wrote through Freedom of Information program where he talked about this. Finally he was the Chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee.  At that time he joined the cover up, never to be heard of again about UFOs.  I suppose he knew after that.

Grant said that by his research he can see what the aliens are doing, it is like turning a page in a book.  After each year in the time line they move on to the next thing.

I wonder if they had something to do with the sounds heard all around the world.  Something made the sounds - but why?  If they did it no one knows what it means!

If you are a member of C2C am Coast Insider, then perhaps you can go back and listen to what Grant Cameron said on March 12, the last two hours.

One of my favorite cases!

At about 11 pm on June 22, 1977, gold prospector Albert Smith noticed three lights in the sky.  Silently and slowly they moved down toward him and then nestled in a clump of trees near his camp.  He saw figures emerge amid dazzling lights.

Thus began the most incredible two days in the life of 45 year old Albert Smith, the two days in which he claims he was visited by people from another world at his lonely camp on the Bulloo River in far southwest Queensland.

Smith is not Albert's real name.  But that's what we said we would call him when he agreed reluctantly to an interview last week.

He claims he spoke to the visitors, watched them play games with what appeared to be lightning balls, saw them disappear and then reappear and stood spellbound as the intergalactic travelers created instantaneous rain.

Last week Albert recalled his meeting with the 35 men and women from a place they called Begus.

He said it was in near freezing weather yet the women were wearing summer type clothing.  The men were dressed in what looked like gray business mens suits.  They all appeared very human but their skin was a blue-grey color.  Their craft was about 50 meters high, each with five supporting legs.

The leader said his name was Behnar.  When I touched him it felt like I was touching very soft rubber.

When I asked them questions they seemed to know what I was going to say before I said it.  And I think they only permitted me to ask what they wanted me to.  I'm sure they had control of my mind for those two days.

I think their powers were almost limitless.

Albert said the aliens could speak English but only in whispered tones.  They appeared to be able to communicate with their hands as well.

Only a few of them stayed near the camp.  The rest went down to the river.

One woman told me she was 490 years old.  She looked it too; like a mummy from some sort of Egyptian tomb.

At one stage they all started to play a game with hundreds of these balls which seemed to throw out lightning.

These people could leap 60 meters in one jump.

When they left the only thing that remained was a very heavy smell of kerosene.  There were no marks or objects left to prove their existence.

Just before they finally disappeared the leader told me he was going to make rain.  A short time later it suddenly started to pour.  It was eight days before the rain stopped.

I wanted to see their craft taking off but again I think they controlled me.

I was lying in bed and could not get up.  It seemed like I had 100 kilograms of lead in my legs.

The June visit was the fourth experience Albert has had with visitors from outer space since he began prospecting in the area five years ago.

In the winter of 1973 he saw a fleet of 16 spacecraft hover over the area and then move away.

In May the following year he approached a cigar-shaped craft hovering above the ground.  He saw men in the cockpit and a woman at one of the windows.  It sped away in what appeared to be a flash of light.  And in June 1976 another brilliantly illuminated craft appeared.

Albert said, "I have not yet approached the authorities about this.  A lot of other things happened which I don't want to talk about at this stage.  No one will believe me until I get proof and that's what I intend to get as soon as I possibly can.

I will be going back to the area in late February but this time I will have a camera.  I have begun to to document all these experiences.

I am very scared and frightened about going back but they did not harm me the first time.  I hope they won't if they visit me again.

Long before recorded history, the Loyalhanna Creek formed a gorge through the foothills of the Laurel Highlands between what is now Latrobe and Ligonier.  The hills and creek bed are littered with the rough remains of thousands of years of erosion on sandstone, and the natural beauty of this area is nothing less than majestic.  In all seasons the trees, the rocks and the scenery intrigue travelers on Route 30.

The highway is divided in that stretch in two lanes east and two lanes west.  The Sleepy Hollow crossing, halfway between where the road splits and rejoins, is a quick way to change direction.  The causeway is also a good place to stop and linger for summer picnics or for fishing clear waters.

At around 11:30 p.m. May 15, 1988 Sam Sherry of Ligonier RD1 pulled into the area to go night fishing, like he'd done many times before.

"As soon as I got out of my car I could sense something was wrong," he told the Scene magazine  "I could sense something there, something unusual and it was watching me."

Sherry has been training coonhounds for years and considers himself a seasoned outdoorsman.

"I've been in the woods for 50 years, and I know everything in the woods," he said.  "If I see a track, I know what animal made it."

But, he didn't know what was making a commotion near the causeway.  There was also a bad odor in the air.  Curious, he turned on a big flashlight and found himself looking into a pair of red glowing eyes.

That night, Sherry's half century in the woods didn't do him any good.  This wasn't a bear.  It wasn't a big cat, nor a dog, nor anything he'd ever seen before.  He said, "The face was pretty much human looking, but it looked real old and wrinkled.  The lips were puckered up, and it didn't have any teeth.  It was breathing real noisy, wheezing and slobbering and spitting and this wheezing going on down in its chest."

They were just 25 feet apart, and man and creature began taking steps closer to each other.  Then Sherry turned to go back to his car, but by then the creature was so close that he could feel its breath on his neck and smell the terrible odor, like rotten fish.

"It brushed up against me, into my elbow, and it grabbed at my clothes and let go," he said.  Just before Sherry got into the car, the creature put its arms on Sherry's shoulders, then dropped them.  The man got into the car and the creature continued to stand there, very erect.  As Sherry pulled away, he could see it raise one arm.

Two years later, he can laugh about that gesture, "I thought he was waving bye-bye," Sherry said, "but I learned that a lot of people say that they'll put one arm up."

"They" are the Bigfoot creatures, and Sam Sherry,, until then an unbeliever, drove away knowing that he'd seen something well beyond unusual.

"While I was standing there studying the creature, it occurred to me that I had a problem, that I can't tell this to anybody because nobody would believe this," he said.

But he soon told the story to someone who told him about Stan Gordon, director of the Pennsylvania Association for the Study of the Unexplained based in Greensburg.  Gordon came out to the site and so did John Micklow, a retired Latrobe police officer who volunteers with PASU.

What Sherry said he saw was nothing new.  Each year, dozens of reports of Bigfoot creatures and unidentified flying objects are made to PASU.  Although the cases are no longer making headlines, plenty of people report chilling incidents that can't be explained.  Many of them have taken place in the Laurel Highlands, particularly along the Chestnut Ridge, which has become known as Pennsylvania's Twilight Zone

"That ridge seems to have a pattern (of sightings) for what reason, I don't know," Micklow said, "Maybe it's because it's pretty wild up there and not heavily populated.  If there's any other reason, I don't know what it is."

Alleged UFO and Bigfoot sightings have been known since the worldwide flap of 1973.  Then, it made big news.  Now there are few media reports, but that doesn't mean the sightings have stopped.  Gordon emphasizes that the witnesses are average people and most of them hesitate to tell anyone what they've seen for fear of ridicule.  It's the guaranteed anonymity that allows them to finally get in touch with PASU, often through referrals from the police.

The details from local sightings and from all around the world are always strikingly similar.  In the case of the creatures, they're usually tall, hairy, ape-like, have glowing red eyes, are often foul-smelling, and sometimes emit screams that have been described as sounding like a woman in pain.  In the case of UFOs, they come in all sizes, from small enough to fly through windows to bigger than a house.  They can hover or flit around quickly.  The creatures and UFOs have also been known to suddenly disappear.

The spring of 1990 was a particularly busy time for Bigfoot reports in the Laurel Highlands.  On the ridge above Youngstown (near Latrobe) a witness said that for the last several springs he and some neighbors had been hearing high-pitched screams at night.

"He's hunted all his life and he lives on a farm, right next to the woods," Micklow said.  "He knows just about everything that comes and goes through the area."

What he heard was nothing he'd heard before, and what he finally saw was unlike anything he'd ever seen.  On this night the screams were so close to the house that he couldn't resist investigating.  It was about 3 a.m. when he and his son went out and scanned the yard with a flashlight.  There at the edge of the field was a small, hairy ape-like creature standing upright and staring back at him with intense red eyes.  Unlike most reported Bigfoot creatures, this one wasn't very big.  The witness estimated it to be only about three and a half to four feet tall. 

I froze," he told Micklow.  "It just let out a scream and I shut the light out and didn't know what to expect.  I just shut the light off.  The hair on the back of my head stood up.  That's how scared I was."

The man heard it one more time on another night, and woke up his wife.  Until then, she never believed there was anything out there.  Now she's changed her mind.

In another sighting that spring, a man going night fishing at Donegal Lake pulled into the parking lot, walked to the edge of the water with his little dog and 15 minutes later the dog began barking and twirling around.  When the man got up and shined his light behind him, he saw a huge hairy creature just 50 to 100 feet away.  It let out three shrieks then turned and walked into the woods.  The man gave the usual description: hairy and ape-like but he estimated that it stood seven feet tall and weighed about 400 pounds.

" He was frightened," Micklow said.  "He ran to his car and went directly home, about a mile away, and called the state police, who directed him to us."

In 1988 there were high-pitched screams in a series of incidents near Laughlintown, but the man who heard them said they happened about 4:30 to 5 p.m. not at night.

"He couldn't figure out what it was, but one afternoon he was walking around and heard where it was coming from," Micklow said.  "He knew this wooded area like the back of his hand, and he stood there for about ten minutes looking over the hill."

At first he couldn't see anything, then about 100 yards ahead it looked like a stump where he knew he hadn't cut down any trees.  Then the "stump" started moving away.  PASU has tape recordings of alleged Bigfoot screams.  When Micklow played one, the man said that's what he'd been hearing for a week.

A year or two earlier, a woman who lives on the ridge west of Derry heard similar screaming, but thought her horses were carrying on.  Several nights later she heard the sound again, looked out the window and saw a Bigfoot type creature walk through her yard, cross the electric fence and go into a wooded area.

Micklow has never seen anything himself that couldn't be explained, but he believes there are some things that just aren't natural.  Yes, there are hoaxes, like when someone fabricated footprints at the Sleepy Hollow causeway after media coverage of that reported sighting.  But PASU experts can tell when tracks are faked.  Real footprints leave impressions of muscle and tendon surfaces, and weight distribution.

"We don't go in with the idea that we're dealing with a hoax," Micklow said.  "We go into the investigation with an open mind to determine all the facts, and we try to determine if the incident is really something natural."

Many times people see big dogs or bears, or objects in the sky that are explainable natural phenomena or man-made.  But there's still that intriguing percentage of unexplainable incidents, such as in January of 1990 when an Oak Grove resident (near Ligonier) taking the family dog out at night found eight three-toed footprints in the snow, five and a half feet apart.)

There were nearly 70 five-toed prints left in the snow during a blizzard-like storm on February 13, 1985.  At around 6 a.m. several persons traveling a road on the Derry side of the Chestnut Ridge noticed what they initially thought were bear prints.  However, these impressions were 15 inches long, nine inches wide and showed a stride from 48 to 65 inches.  PASU investigators followed the tracks for a distance, but the severe weather halted their efforts.

Were the impressions left by a known mammal, or once again had something unexplained happened on the Chestnut Ridge?  And what was it that on April 16, 1989, on the southern end of the ridge in Fayette County, disturbed the farmer's livestock and caused his dog to act strange?  The witness swore it was a huge, 8-foot tall hair manlike creature that ran, then easily cleared a high fence at the edge of a field

Indeed, what are these people seeing, and what's leaving behind the footprints?  "We just represent the facts," Micklow said.  "You can draw your own conclusions.
To be continued.

The witness (involved in previous encounters) woke up Saturday night to see a cloaked being standing in the center of his bedroom. It had the same shape as the short fly-head/mantis being (but he could not be certain). He heard a "popping" sound and the being quickly disappeared.

On Sunday night the witness (involved in previous encounters) woke up to see two tall praying mantis type beings standing in the middle of his bedroom. They looked as if they were engaged in a conversation, making high-pitched (almost digital) clicking sounds at each other. The witness was too tired to be afraid so he just concentrated on making a mental description, cross checking it with the ones he'd seen before. Both were extremely thin and tall, well over seven feet high. One was slightly taller than the other. Their necks were long, flexible and tube-like and didn't look strong enough to support their triangular heads. The neck and the head moved in a way that reminded the witness of the old-stop motion monster films or like a lizard. Both were wearing long black robes that again looked like liquid oil. On the side of the face he could clearly see a small round hole just below their eyes. He felt completely drained and couldn't move. He then slipped back into unconsciousness.

Late at night Gonzalo Rodriguez heard strange noises and a ruckus coming from the hen house on his property---a commotion that was far from being normal. He decided to send his son to check with a flashlight to make sure thieves weren't at work. The youth obeyed his father and flashlight in hand approached the large hen house stealthily, becoming terrified upon seeing a strange black animal, standing some 40cm, tall and resembling a small dog with a long tail and standing on two legs. He recalls, among what little he was able to see through the flashlight's beam, that the animal had a very long tongue. Upon seeing the light, the creature fled into the vegetation, skillfully leaping over a wall. An inspection of the hen house revealed that 20 hens had been slain. Police authorities of the nearby town of San Ramon were notified and officer Marcos Hernandez reported to the scene to corroborate not only Gonzalo Rodriguez's account, but also the testimony of frightened neighbors. The birds were whole and the only sign of damage to them were the two small orifices on their backs, through which it is presumed that the strange assailant drove its fangs to remove or suck the blood. Several days before several dead sheep had been found with the same characteristics; twin puncture marks on their necks or back and not a single drop of blood.

Jason McIntosh and two friends were stopped at the end of a road to watch a light in the sky when one of the girls pointed out some orange lights moving in a field. To their left in a fenced yard they saw an image of two people in white "dancing". About 20 minutes later the car was filled with green glowing lights moving around at high speed. They could feel massive charges of static electricity and one of the girls got out and wanted to see the aliens. She came back to the car saying that she had seen strange little men. At the same time the others felt sensations of a craft flying slowly overhead and felt downdrafts of air. Then they saw a bright white light above the house in the field and occasionally smaller lights shooting into it from the sky. They could also see a group of figures in white standing in front of a house. One of the girls and Jason walked up the path to investigate and they stood 15 ft from them and Jason waved at one and it waved back. Suddenly they had an overwhelming sense of danger and went back to the car. Soon they could see gray colored creatures, 4 ft tall leaning in the passenger window. They then drove to the end of a driveway then drove back to the front. They could see that from where the strangers in white were standing what appeared to be large black charges of electricity were being pushed up towards the white light in the sky. Then a big black fog came in and left. The creatures were gone but the little green lights stayed in the car for 2 or 3 hours afterwards.

Several local inhabitants reported hearing a very loud booming noise over the area and what appeared to be a metallic object falling into the beach area. For a while they did not approach the supposed crash site because of fear. However others reported that the object was huge and disc-shaped, apparently metallic, without windows or wings. Soon after the "crash" members of the Mexican Territorial Army cordoned off the area and warned local inhabitants not to approach the area. Others have reported seeing similar disc-shaped craft flying at a high altitude over the area.

Location. Chann Kalan, Pakistan
Date: February 26 2004 Time: evening

Constable Jagdish Parishad who on Thursday was keeping vigil on the international border had seen a flying object like a hot air balloon carrying three persons who disembarked after landing in Pakistani territory.

Since the constable had never seen a para-glider, fan glider or even a hot air balloon during his service tenure, it is difficult to ascertain the authenticity of the matter.

Just prior to the UFO sighting Pakistani troops backed
by helicopter gunships and artillery detained 20 people in raids against suspected Al-Qaeda hideouts in a tribal region bordering Afghanistan.

On a very cold night, the witness, Marina was in her room reading a book when she heard loud scratching noises on her window. Startled she looked at the window and saw a bizarre entity with a very large head and strange red eyes. The entity stared at Marina and mumbled some words, which Marina thought it meant for her to come and open the window because he wanted to talk to her. In a trance-like state she opened the window and the entity then spoke the following words, "Humans less and less value their planet, and each day that goes by they destroy the planet a little more, humans do not realize that they are destroying themselves also." Moments later the entity vanished.

Location. Monte Maiz, Cordoba, Argentina
Date: March 2004 Time: various

A silhouette of a man who walks on rooftops, drags heavy chains and makes strange noises turned into a disquieting "phantom" that has made residents of Monte Maiz restless. Opinions on the "phantom" are diametrically opposed, since some claim having seen "a figure standing over 2 meters tall, dressed in black and with spectacular agility" while others say its all imagination. The local residents call it "the phantom". Those who have seen it say that it is a young person, very tall and slim, with red eye. It dresses in white, sometimes black and others gray. Always wears a hat and covers its face with a mask or hood.

The sounds on the rooftops begin after 2100 hours, as do the calls to the police. Residents claim that it walks on the roof, shuffles and runs, drags chains, scratches at windows and bangs at doors. It doesn't speak or yell---it has only been heard to laugh in the dark or whistle, some claim having heard it imitate the howling of a dog. Locals say that it runs swiftly and jumps over barbed wire fencing and walls without touching them, according to concerned neighbors. Some eyewitness accounts follow:

Ivana Molina had gone out to her yard and saw a man dancing, whistling and slapping his hands. The neighbors heard similar noises. The next day, she went out and the same man tried to grab her. She ran into the house and phoned the police. It then banged on her bathroom window and wrote "mueres" (you'll die) with its finger.

Oscar Gonzalez reported standing in the yard when he saw a shadow walking along. He could see its red eyes. He then went out with another fellow to find it and the "phantom" jumped the neighbor's yard. It was dressed in white. The following day it whistled at the men again. They went out to chase it and it vanished.

Veronica Bertrando reported that her husband saw it as it crossed the patio; he said it was dressed in gray with a hood over its head. When it went by the dog barked, her husband then went outside and it took off running. He searched for it but could not find it.

Local police offered the following additional details on the stranger (or strangers?), 1.8 to 1.9 meters tall, dresses in black, a white face (possibly a mask) wears a black hat, its movements are generally silent and possesses extreme agility, it jumps over fences, walls and climbs up trees with ease. It normally appears between 2130 to 0300 hours

A sort of "inner voice" told the witness to get his camera and go outside. He waited for about 5 minutes then a bright white light shone on his eyes and then he saw three disc-shaped craft surrounding a large cigar-shaped object maneuvering overhead. The discs kept circling around the cigar. He took three photographs then he was again illuminated by a bright white light and suddenly found himself on his bed the next morning. He suffered from nosebleeds after the incident and had strange lucid "dreams" of seeing a little "black man" who enters his bedroom and tells him that they are taking him. He remembers running and then being shot in the arm by a laser-like light. He woke up the next morning shivering and with his arm sore

Steven Nicklin and a friend were walking across Northicote Farm near an old Tudor farmhouse when both men saw a humanoid grayish figure with a human-type head standing on a tree, which formed part of the many trees that bordered the farm, these were tall pine trees, and the figure stood on the top branches. They estimated the size of the figure as being about 2.1 meters in height. It had two legs and two arms connected to membrane-type wings. Its clawed hands seemed connected to the wings, somehow resembling a pterosaur. It moved its head and looked directly at the witnesses, since the moon was full and there was a streetlight not far away. It turned its head from the witnesses and then took one giant leap and glided to the next tree. The tree bent under the creature's weight as it took the impact. It then turned its head to look at them once more. Its gaze felt that "it could look into their very being (soul)". Both men felt quite scared and both fled the area quickly. The men said that it was a creature they had never seen before nor wanted to see again.

The witness was on his paper route and was driving at about 25-30 mph when he saw a real bright light in the sky about the size of the moon. He pulled up to the side to catch a better glimpse of the object. About 1 minute passed when all of the sudden it disappeared. Then after 10 seconds of dead silence a round bright object landed right in front of the witness. It was circular and glowed very brightly. It was probably about 25 ft in height and about 100 ft in diameter. Stunned the witness heard a voice as if someone was talking to him gently in his ear. He looked around and did not see anybody. All of the sudden the craft didn't glow anymore and on the side of the craft it said, "future". The voice then said, "nobody else can see this but you, we are from the future, you are a representative now of the future for this mass (sic), please lead or there will be dire consequences." The voice talked very slowly and clearly in perfect English. He still couldn't see anybody but after the voice stopped talking he shouted, "who the hell are you"! And then everything disappeared. After about 10 minutes of reflecting on what had occurred, the witness drove home.

44-year old Miss Wiktoria Lesniakiewicz was in her bedroom when she suddenly noticed her cat, which had died several days ago. She followed the animal. The cat walked out of the bedroom through the closed door, but feeling very tired Wiktoria went to sleep. That same night she had a strange "dream" about her cat. She woke up feeling the cat's hot body on her legs. At the same time she sensed and heard strange voices and music. Three separate voices were discussing something, speaking in a strange language. The music resembled classical music, very similar to the Mozart symphonies, but it was definitely not a Mozart composition. Afraid, Wiktoria turned the lamp on. The voices and the music then slowly faded away. She was unable to sleep the rest of the night.

The witness, M N, was driving eastward on Wellington Street on the southeastern end of Lake Superior and as he came to the central part of the city (known to locals of the Lake Superior region as Soo, Canada). He noticed a straight beam of light hovering in the early morning sky, from the top of the hill that was on his northern side. His vehicle came to a complete stop at a cross street and he looked all the way down to the end of the street (about 7 blocks away) because the street ended at the base of the hill and has a metal stairwell leading to McDonald Avenue. Although being 7 blocks away his eyes were able to focus on a little dark figure that was standing very still. This caught his curiosity as he slowly drove towards it, and then started moving from side to side using fluid movements as if it was hovering in mid-air. It moved as if it was confused, or afraid and didn't know what to do. As he got closer, the figure's appearance seemed to have metamorphosed into a transparent, shadow like entity that very swiftly flew up the stairs. To his astonishment, the beam of light that he had seen in the sky a few minutes before and a couple of miles away was now at the top of the hill, only about 100 ft away. With his heart racing, he drove as fast as he could eastward along the base of the hill until he came to the nearest hill street and drove up McDonald Avenue to see what was happening. In a matter of seconds, traveling from the bottom to the top of the hill, he arrived at the top of the steps only to find three circle-shaped burn markings on the pavement of the street. Approximately 10 seconds later he heard a very weird kind of gunshot sound, looked up to the sky and saw a bright light shooting up into the stars. As he watched the spectacle a surreal kind of peaceful feeling came upon him and he felt as if every hair on his body as standing on end. The feeling only lasted for what felt like 30 seconds, but when he looked at his watch it was a good 40 minutes later.
