City of Heracleion sunk into the Mediterranean sea 1,200 years ago 2013

Heracleion was an ancient Egyptian city near Alexandria. It was known as early as the 12th century BC but its importance grew during the waning days of the pharaohs, the late period. Herakleion was Egypt's main port in the time of the pharaohs.

It was famous because it was believed that Helen of Troy and Hercules had visited the city, and that the city had even gained its name from Hercules. There was also a large temple dedicated to the Greek hero at the city center. Pharaoh Nectanebo made many additions to the temple in the 4th century B.C. In the 6th or 7th century A.D.

It sank, probably due to major earthquakes and floods. The ruins submerged in the sea were finally located and rediscovered by the French underwater archaeologist Franck Goddio in 2001.

In cooperation with the Egyptian Ministry for Antiquities and the support of the Hilti Foundation, the team has recovered important information on the city’s ancient landmarks, such as the grand temple of god Amun and his son Khonsou and the city’s harbours.

Now archeologists are unearthing the mysteries of Heracleion, uncovering amazingly well-preserved artifacts.

So far, 64 ancient shipwrecks and more than 700 anchors have been unearthed from the mud of the bay, the news outlet notes. Other findings include gold coins, weights from Athens (which have never before been found at an Egyptian site) and giant tablets inscribed in ancient Greek and ancient Egyptian.

Researchers have also uncovered a variety of religious artifacts in the sunken city, including 16-foot stone sculptures thought to have adorned the city's central temple and limestone sarcophagi that are believed to have contained mummified animals. Photo's at franckgoddio.org

Photographer took image of holographic anomalies from a parallel universe?

On June 11, 2019 the photographer took several photos within seconds of his family and other people with a beautiful landscape in the background near Slade, Kentucky.


One photo shows something remarkable, (three) rock or bolder like in appearance and shape while these objects cannot be seen in all other photos that were taken at the same time.


Not only some people believe the concept of a holographic universe but simulations back up theory that Universe is a hologram. Theoretical physicists and astrophysicists have also found there is substantial evidence supporting a holographic explanation of the universe.

Besides a Canadian, UK and Italian study has provided what researchers believe is the first observational evidence that our universe could be a vast and complex hologram.


Could it be that the photographer accidentally took an image of a holographic representation of objects from a parallel universe or the objects are just reflections in the camera lens? Mufon case 101069.

Glowing Disk photographed over Peruvian Andes near Machu Picchu, Peru

The photographer who has submitted the image to Mufon states that he as in Peru taking a train back to Cusco from Machu Picchu and was taking pictures of ruins and beautiful mountains.


When reviewing the pictures, he noticed a very geometrical frisbee shaped object in a picture. It’s a copper color that has a glowing/mist coming from. It looks very geometric and not like a reflection.


It is not the first time that UFOs have been photographed near and above Machu Piccchu.

A tourist visiting Machu Picchu has accidentally taken an image of a UFO in the sky above the ancient ruins located in the Andes Mountains in Peru.


A woman who lives in Peru visited Machu Picchu some time ago. After a while she and her friends went on to the mountain when suddenly she saw a weird being hidden behind a rock in front of a cave.


And during a trip to Machu Picchu another tourist took many photos of the site. After back in the hotel she looked at the photos and saw in two photos something that she could no…

Swarms of UFO's seen during Soyuz Docking with the International Space Station

The footage shows the moment the Soyuz arrives at the International Space Station when several unknown space objects come into view and passing the Soyuz and the ISS.


These objects are certainly not ice crystals nor artifacts created by the camera. The most remarkable object is a donut-shaped UFO that appears from the left. Then the object makes various maneuvers while passing the Soyuz.

Next a sphere comes from the right, continues its flight path and passes the Soyuz to disappear into space.

Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon appears over Mieroszow, Poland

FastWalkers is a code name created by the North American Aerospace Defense Command to classify Unidentified Flying Objects which moving and changing directions at high speed and enter or leave the atmosphere at a great velocity.


Sometimes FastWalkers have been captured on the Defense Support Program satellite system as happened on May 5, 1984 when a DSP satellite captured a FastWalker while it was traveling a 22,000 mph.through space, while Fastwalkers caught by drones traveling at a speed of at least 2,000 mph.

Lately these objects or UAPs (Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon) are increasingly being observed and captured especially by drones. The latest sighting of a fastwalker took place in Mieroszow, Poland on May 30, 2019 where a drone captured such an UAP on camera.

Although we do not know what these UAPs could be, it is quite possible that these objects are secret technology belonging to the U.S. military or even deployed by its adversaries.

Below the footage of the fastwalker (UAP) …
