600 kg. Chunk of Chelyabinsk Meteor Pulled from Russian Lake - Oct 16, 2013 (Video)

Eight months after a meteorite exploded over central Russia, divers have hauled a large chunk of space rock out of a lake, giving people a look at the extraterrestrial object that caused damage throughout the region. On Feb. 15, a 17-m-wide, 10,000-ton meteorite exploded over central Russia. When the rock hit the atmosphere, it caused a bright flash, and some residents said their first thought was that they had seen the start of a nuclear war. Thousands of small fragments fell throughout the region of Chelyabinsk, breaking windows and injuring about 1,500 people.

One of the largest pieces of the meteor fell into Lake Chebarkul, tearing a massive hole in the ice. On Oct. 16, divers finally hauled the half-ton piece of space rock from 20 m of water. Once outside the lake, the chunk broke into three large pieces when it was lifted off the ground with rope, making it harder to determine the precise weight, but an unnamed scientist told the website lifenews.ru that the meteorite weighed 570 kg. "And then the scale broke," he said. "We think the whole thing weighs more than 600 kg." Sergey Zamozdra, an associate professor at Chelyabinsk State University, told the Interfax news agency that the chunk is probably one of the 10 biggest meteorite fragments ever recovered.

The Chelyabinsk meteor wasn't Russia's first brush with crashing objects from space. Scientists at the Imperial College of London estimate that meteorites the size of the one in Chelyabinsk hit the earth's atmosphere about once every 50 years, and Russia was the site of one of the best recorded and most destructive meteor strikes in modern history. In 1908, an asteroid or comet (probably intercepted by a UFO) hit the atmosphere and exploded near the Tunguska River in central Russia. In what became known as the "Tunguska Event," the explosion, believed to be 1,000 times more powerful than the atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima, knocked down 80 million trees over more than 5,180 sq km. Scientists estimate that the blast would have measured 5.0 on the Richter scale.

In 1972, a meteoroid entered earth's atmosphere over Utah in the U.S., traveled north and left the atmosphere over Alberta, Canada. Thousands of people witnessed the fireball, which, like Chelyabinsk, was captured on film. The Great Daylight Fireball didn't cause any harm, unlike the Chelyabinsk meteor, which damaged more than 7,000 buildings and captivated observers around the world.

Latest news on meteors/asteroids: 3 days ago (Feb. 15, 2013) an asteroid designated 2012 DA14 with an estimated diameter of 30 meters (98 ft) and an estimated mass of 40,000 metric tons has completed its flyby (about 17,200 miles of Earth's surface, closer than the communication satellites) of Earth.

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.

NEW - "STRANGE SOUNDS" coming from Sky! - Unusual phenomena RETURNS!

Whether it comes to aliens, changes in the earth’s core, chemtrails, HAARP or other weather modification technology, with the latest strange sounds recorded in South East England and Denmark again people wonder what could be the meaning of these noises, but till now nobody has an explanation for the eerie sounds.
