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

Flying Saucer becomes visible over Zagreb, Croatia during thunderstorm

On June 16, 2019 during a thunderstorm over Zagreb, Croatia a huge UFO can be seen in the middle of the thunderstorm.


The photographer who submitted the images to Mufon talks about a pyramid-like object, but after enlarging the object it appears to be a clear flying saucer type UFO.

Massive UFO appears above ancient Ley-line in London, UK

In June 2019, UFO Researcher Miller captured from the 5th floor roof top balcony with his Ipad at 10.27 several images of the sky in all directions.

After reviewing the images, Miller noticed in one of a the images a huge UFO in the cloud formation.


In the second image the UFO is no longer visible; instead we see that a strange triangle has appeared between the clouds.

Since Miller stated that the location is situated on an ancient Ley-line crossing the magnetic world grid is it quite possible that the UFO probably piloted by extraterrestrials has used the invisible powers and energy coming from the Ley-lines for navigation.

Mysterious force of nature known as Ley-lines, invisible geometric alignments that ran across ancient landscapes, connecting both natural and sacred prehistoric structures such as ancient monuments, stone circles and megaliths together.

All Ley-lines run over the electromagnetic fields of the earth and lead to the planetary Grid.

How did that deer ended up on top a power pole?

Conservation worker and C2C listener Bruce shared a bizarre photo on CoastToCoast Facebook page of a deer that somehow wound up atop a power pole in a rural area somewhere in the US northeast.


According to Bruce, the most likely explanation for how the deer wound up there is that it was hit by a train, since there are train tracks several yards away.

However, he notes, "the deer would have to have traveled in the air approximately 45 feet (across) to the pole and reach a height of approximately 22 feet (up) to reach the top of the pole."

But being hit by a train seems unlikely, that kind of impact would have made the picture to gruesome however the deer shows no signs of external wounds.


Could it be that a large and strong bird like an eagle or something like the legendary creature the so-called thunderbird must have tried carrying it and dropped it because too heavy or maybe the deer has fallen victim to a failed alien abduction?

The question remains, how did the deer ended…
