There’s a History of UFO Sightings North of the Border

Written by: The Overlord

Not all people consider UFO’s part of the paranormal, but around here we think it fits.

For decades, UFO’s have been linked to topics such as time travel, unexplained phenomenon (alleged abductions, crop circles etc.) and a host of other activities.

Unidentified Flying Object

To be clear, we do not believe that alien’s are visiting us, but we do agree that there are an awful lot of photos, videos and eye witness accounts that are difficult to explain.

Hence the name Unidentified Flying Objects. It’s the “unidentified” part that we do not debate.

A recent report shows that there were 986 reported sightings in 2011. The all time record for reported sightings is 1,004 sightings in 2004.

Canada’s history with UFO’s goes back decades. To 1947 to be exact. That’s the year that the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) and the Department of National Defence began receiving and taking note of reports of objects in the sky that people could not identify. 

Perhaps one of the most famous incidence occurred on May 20, 1967 in Falcon Lake Manitoba. Stephen Michalak, a prospector, reported a 35 foot in diameter silver object that he got so close to he was almost able to reach out and touch it.

Soon after the event Mr. Michalak becomes sick, and over the next few weeks he suffers from a variety of ailments from weight loss to headaches and blackouts. Within the year, he collapses and doctors find a series of burn marks on his chest.

To add to the mystery, Michalak’s doctors send him to the Mayo Clinic for tests. The Mayo Clinic claims they have no record of Stephen Michalak having been a patient.

What makes this story important is the amount of consistent detail, as well as, medical documentation seem to support the fact that Michalak experienced “something”. 

So does that mean that aliens, time travelers or some other life form is visiting our planet. That’s somewhat unlikely.

But, one thing is clear.....something unexplained is happening.

Is This Photo Proof That Bigfoot & Humans Share A Common Ancestor?

Bigfoot researchers have long supposed that the legendary cryptid is a primate, and therefore related to modern humans.

Recently discovered photo examinations which originate from Shawnee, Oklahoma may hold an important clue.

William Bradley has long held an interest in Sasquatch. Himself a native of Shawnee, Bradley states that Oklahoma has long been a hot bed of Bigfoot activity.

Bradley claims to have multiple talents which have helped him discover the truth.

When Hunting For Bigfoot, Look Up.
Way up.

Regular readers to ParaNorthern on Facebook or our website know that I am officially a Bigfoot skeptic. Even though I want to believe that a large primate inhabits the considerable wilderness of the North American continent, most of the so called evidence falls into the category of Bollocks. (Ask someone British.)

So when I read recently that some Sasquatch hunters are suggesting that we look to the tree tops for sleeping Bigfoot I laughed out loud. I could not picture something of the supposed mass of of this bipedal cryptid climbing a tree to get a good night's rest.

But then I saw this video.
