Alien Captured on Film in 1930’s Alaska by Grandfather Who Disclosed It Day Before He Died!

AlaskaAlien1

The picture above was taken in the early 1930s by the sender’s grandfather, who lived in Alaska. The entity was first seen when the grandfather was on his way to a lake. He chased the entity until he got close enough to take this one picture. It was some four months before the photograph was developed, being in in a remote, sparsely populated area. The sender received the picture from his grandfather only last week. His grandfather died the day after giving him the photo, and relating his story.

Letter from ‘witness’ to UFOCasebook.com:

Subj: Photograph taken by my grandfather

Date: 8/14/2003

Dear Sir,

The included picture was taken by my grandfather in the early 1930s. I scanned the image immediately after he gave it to me last week. I wish to remain anonymous since I don’t want anything to do with any research or whatever on this.

I know it looks like an alien or a Bigfoot and I know my grandfather was telling me the truth about him taking this picture. That’s why I think it should be in the right hands. You are the only one I’m sending this to, so please respect my privacy and don’t contact me about this.

Thanks in advance,

Yours,

(Name withheld)


From UFOCasebook.com editor B. J. Booth:

The only additional information is contained on the bottom of the full size image, which tells us the following:

The picture was taken in the early 1930s by the sender’s grandfather, who lived in Alaska. The entitiy was first seen when the grandfather was on his way to a lake. He chased the entity until he got close enough to take this one picture. It was some four months before the photograph was developed, being in in a remote, sparsely populated area.

1955…

The following alien photos were distributed around the internet after release in 1995 from China. The Chinese translation stated: “Based upon a source from the Japanese UFO Institute, the picture or photograph shows the 1970 alien incident.” The photos of the alien were believed to be taken or the alien body found in Gongzui on Dadu River (southwest of Leshan, China).” OR it’s the prop found in the International UFO Museum Research Center in Roswell, New Mexico.

Welcome to the Starving Writers’ Club!

WELCOME to our new blog: “The Starving Writers’ Club”! We love this new site! AND we know you will, too! There is a writer in you and we want to help that writer grow.

Our Charter:

The Starving Writers’ Club is a writerly advice and inspiration blog where we keep things light & humorous; but still very informative, up-to-date, and always encouraging. We will cover things like writing technique and craft; artsy-fartsy-ness topics; quotes; how-tos; writing samples from classic writers; and maybe even from you and your neighbor! Why not?

Word of the Week:

“Vapors”: In archaic usage, the vapors is a reference to the treatment of certain mental or physical states, such as hysteria, mania, clinical depression, bipolar disorder, lightheadedness, fainting (from publisher rejections), flush, withdrawal syndrome (because no one wants to celebrate your supreme talent), mood swings, etc. where a sufferer lost mental focus. The term was often applied to the melodramatic behavior of women in centuries past who felt light-headed or “faint”. (parentheses, ours).

Our Motto:

‘Don’t let “the vapors” take you down! You ARE a FABULOUS writer. So, get up, dust off your pearls, grab that tumbler of “ambition-on-the-rocks” and kick some ass, Baby!’

So come see us and follow us at: https://thestarvingwritersclub.wordpress.com/

Off the Beaten Path, But…I Came Back Haunted! Don’t Miss Story #1 in Our New Ghost Story Anthology!

GGSETFriends, please don’t forget that I am honored to be publishing the first book by Sanguine Woods Publishing(sm) on my blog @ Haint-Blue Shudders (link below).

I don’t like hype. And so I don’t spin it or any other BS. THIS IS A GREAT BOOK. Rare ghost story reprints (you have not read these I’ll bet, I haven’t) and a few new stories written in the old-fashioned ghost story vein.

The Greatest Ghost Stories Ever Told is a celebration of the places where the Gothic tradition has overlapped with a creative and unique intellect (writers like Le Fanu and Richard Hichens come to mind, and Blackwood and Machen), driven to write about the things that haunt us in the darker hours.

Edited, compiled and Introduced by blogger, writer, and Denver-based poet, Sanguine Woods. Each month, a new story will be published on the blog. (STORY 1 IS ALREADY OUT THERE! HAVE YOU READ IT?) (Link below)

I’m excited!

In late 2017 (if the creek don’t rise) the full ebook (with some new material not published on the blog, and perhaps a surprise or two for supporters of the blog publishing event each month) will be made available; and then, if all goes as planned, in the first half of 2018, Sanguine Woods Publishing(sm)* will publish its first trade paperback edition of The Greatest Ghost Stories Ever Told.

I know Sanguine plans to give 100% of the book’s proceeds to charity and is working on that as we speak. In fact if you have a charity in mind and would share it with us, that would be cool. We want to touch not just readers and lovers of horror and good literature, but also human beings. Because it’s the right thing to do.

Please read Story 1** and comment, share, support this very cool effort. We are doing it for you. And for the ghostly tradition in literature. Cheers!

***************************************************************************

*Sanguine Woods Publishing(sm) will publish its first ebook: The Greatest Ghost Stories Ever Told, ed. by Sanguine Woods in late 2017, with a trade paperback to follow in 2018: please follow this effort and support us as you can here:

New Map Sheds Light on Dark Matter That Binds Universe Together…

zm4btckt-1429123466

‘Dark matter is the most common stuff in the universe. A billion sub-atomic particles of dark matter pass through your outstretched hand every second, yet few if any of these ethereal particles might actually touch and rebound from your hand in your lifetime. Now, studies are beginning to shed some light on this mysterious substance.

Astronomers have known since the 1930s that there is more than just the visible universe. The Milky Way, the galaxy we live in, is spinning too fast to be held together by the gravity between its stars. If stars were all there is, we should have long ago been flung off our cosmic roundabout. Instead, our galaxy contains about six times more material of some kind than is accounted for by every atom of all the elements in the periodic table: material known as dark matter.

Dark matter is invisible and can be detected only though the effect its gravity has on things we can see such as passing rays of light – an effect known as gravitational lensing. This is like looking through an uneven pane of glass which, while transparent, is obvious because of the distortions it produces on objects seen through it. By calculating the extent of the distortion, it’s possible to work out the thickness of the glass.

The recently released Dark Energy Survey used gravitational lensing to generate a huge map of dark matter. As seen from the Blanco telescope in Chile, they saw a crisscrossing web of thick, dark matter filaments.

The dark matter web is the invisible scaffolding that underpins the entire visible universe. The scaffold formed very soon after the big bang, and its gravity began to pull in all the ordinary material of which stars, planets and people are then built. Indeed, the galaxies are all found along dark matter filaments, with clusters of up to a thousand galaxies located wherever filaments cross each other.

So now we know where dark matter is. To find out what it is, we need the Hubble Space Telescope to zoom right in to the dark matter map.

Light vs Dark

On Earth we use particle accelerators to find out what matter is made of, firing particles at each other with enormous energy and seeing what the collision produces. This has been the principle behind experiments from Lord Rutherford’s discovery of atoms in 1908, to mankind’s biggest experiment, the Large Hadron Collider at CERN. But we can’t capture dark matter, nor interact with it at all. Nature, however, provides the experiment for us: we can watch what happens when the dark matter around galaxies or clusters of galaxies smash into each other by chance.

Galaxies are made from three ingredients: stars, dark matter and swirling clouds of gas. When two galaxies collide – an event involving expanses of time and space and size that makes it hard to comprehend – individual stars almost always pass straight unscathed. They are pinpoints of matter separated by vast regions of empty void. Conversely, the clouds of gas smash into each other and are pulled by friction to a stop. Dark matter is expected to behave somewhere in between, and its trajectory out of a collision should reveal its properties.

Astronomical Particle Colliders

In one well-studied collision known as the Bullet Cluster, dark matter appeared to whizz straight through the collision. As close as we can tell, dark matter kept pace with the stars, not measurably slowed by its ordeal. But interpreting only a single collision is difficult. We must reconstruct the 3D scene from just one viewpoint and one freeze-frame from a movie that lasts 100m years.

To crowd-source the full movie, we recently observed 72 high-speed collisions of the dark matter around galaxy clusters. We view some from the side, others head-on and each at a different stage in the crash. Reconstructing the statistical properties of a dark matter collision, we confirmed robustly that dark matter interacts very, very little with anything else.
