A Brief History In the night of February 8-9, 1855, the fresh snow of Devon, England was marked with mysterious, bipedal, cloven-hoofed tracks often referred to as “The Devil’s Footprints.” (Please click on the link for a very informative video.) Digging Deeper The tracks were especially unusual in nature in that they were said to have stretched for 40 to 100 miles over the south-western tip of England and to have gone right over tall objects such as buildings and haystacks rather than going around them.  Mostly in a straight line, the prints were about 4 inches long by 3 inches wide, with a…

Digging Deeper Digging deeper, we find the late 1940s spawning a spate of UFO sightings.  The U.S. Air Force conducted Project Sign in 1947 to study these reports, and Project Grudge in 1948.  In 1952, Project Blue Book became the exhaustive investigation we know of today, the brainchild of Air Force generals who demanded a more thorough approach. Lasting until 1969 (mere months after the first moon landing), Project Blue Book had investigated over 12,000 reported incidents!  The final report…

A Brief History On December 5, 1945, a flight of U.S. Navy TBM Avenger torpedo flew into history, providing grist for the paranormal mill that the Bermuda Triangle became! Digging Deeper The training flight of Avengers took off from Naval Air Station (NAS) Ft. Lauderdale at around 1410 hours (military time) for a routine navigation training flight.  Oddly, although necessary for over water navigation (remember, maps would not help!) each airplane was missing its clock.  Assuming the pilots had wrist watches, the flight took off as normal.  Things seemed to be going as planned, with a practice bomb drop about…
