World-Mysteries.com Paranormal Network Transient lunar phenomenon This map, based on a survey of 300 TLPs by Barbara Middlehurst and Patrick Moore, shows the approximate distribution of observed events. Red-hued events are in red; the remainder are in yellow. A transient lunar phenomenon (TLP), or lunar transient phenomenon (LTP), is a short-lived light, color, or change in appearance on the surface of the Moon. Claims of short-lived lunar phenomena go back at least 1,000 years, with some having been observed independently by multiple witnesses or reputable scientists. Most lunar scientists will acknowledge that transient events such as outgassing and impact cratering do occur over geologic time: the controversy lies in the frequency of such events. The term was created by Patrick Moore during his co-authoring of NASA Technical Report R-277 Chronological Catalog of Reported Lunar Events, published in 1968. Description of events[edit] A few of the more famous historical accounts of transient phenomena include the following: Explanations[edit] See also[edit]

Cryptozoology Online: Centre for Fortean Zoology (CFZ) - the world's best cryptozoology organisation - main page Cherubim (Kerubim, Kerubs) The Cherubim were originally the ancient protectors of the Mesopotamian Tree of Life. They were often depicted supporting the thrones of deities and kings.They are closely related to (and often identical to) the sphinx. In the Judeo-Christian tradition, they are the four vast, winged creatures described in the visions of Ezekiel, each winged creature bearing four faces: a lion, a bull, eagle, and human head. In later Christian tradition, the four Cherubim (tetramorphs) are associated with the four evangelists of the New Testament. In ceremonial magic, the four kerubim are the living energy of the tetragrammaton, and rulers of the fixed signs of the zodiac. The chubby baby angels we commonly refer to as “cherubs” are in fact putti, and are carry-overs from Roman paganism.

UNEXPLAINED PHENOMENA - The Alternative Top Ten Over the past decades the designs have become increasingly complex and still remain a mystery as to their origin. Clearly some of the formations are man-made but experts are quick to point out that it is fairly easy to identify these as their construction is often very basic and there is usually evidence of human activity ranging from footprints to vehicle tracks. However, a great many of the formations simply seem to appear as if from out of nowhere - often during the night but occasionally during broad daylight. Crop circles in Wiltshire often appear at the centre of the county and within a 15 mile radius of the megalithic stone circles of Avebury. Mainstream science is generally of the opinion that crop formations are the work of human artists with a few formations being caused by whirlwinds.

Paranormal Zone X Amityville: The True Story In December 1975, George and Kathleen Lutz and their three children moved into 112 Ocean Avenue, a large Dutch Colonial house in Amityville. This was a suburban neighborhood which was located on the south shore of Long Island, New York. Thirteen months before the Lutzes moved in, Ronald DeFeo, Jr. had shot and killed six members of his own family at the house. After 28 days, the Lutzes left the house, claiming to have been terrorized by paranormal spirits and poltergeist activity while living there. Devil's Sea Map of the Izu Islands, centre of the Devil's Sea legend. The Devil's Sea (魔の海, Ma no Umi?), also known as the Dragon's Triangle, the Formosa (Taiwan) Triangle (traditional Chinese: 福爾摩沙三角; simplified Chinese: 福尔摩沙三角; pinyin: Fúěrmóshā Sānjiǎo) and the "Pacific Bermuda Triangle", is a region of the Pacific around Miyake Island, about 100 km south of Tokyo. The Devil's sea is one of 12 Vile Vortices, originally plotted by Ivan T. Sanderson.[1] The size and area varies with the report (the only reports stem from the 1950s), with various reports placing it 110 kilometres (68 mi) from an unspecified part of Japan's east coast, 480 kilometres (300 mi) from the coast, and even near Iwo Jima, 1,200 kilometres (750 mi) from the coast. According to Larry Kusche's investigation, these "military vessels" were fishing vessels, and some of them were lost outside the Devil's Sea, even as far away as near Iwo Jima, 1000 km to the south.

Shadow people An artist's impression of a shadow person as a paranormal entity A shadow person (also known as a shadow figure, shadow being or black mass) is the perception of a patch of shadow as a living, humanoid figure, particularly as interpreted by believers in the paranormal or supernatural as the presence of a spirit or other entity.[1] Many methamphetamine addicts report hallucinations of "shadow people", as a result of sleep deprivation. History and folklore[edit] The Coast to Coast AM late night radio talk show helped popularize modern beliefs in shadow people.[2] The first time the topic of shadow people was discussed at length on the show was April 12, 2001 when host Art Bell interviewed Native American elder Thunder Strikes, who is also known as Harley "SwiftDeer" Reagan. Explanations[edit] Several physiological and psychological conditions can account for reported experiences of shadowy shapes seeming alive. In popular culture[edit] See also[edit] References[edit]
