A sighting unseen

Who would ever have imagined that an innocent hike in Leominster State Forest on a warm day earlier this year would lead to a discovery that brought three Leominster residents to be featured on one of televisions hottest new shows.

Bill Penning and his wife, Julie decided to take a hike one June afternoon, and after setting out their planned route, got slightly waylaid on a different path.

“We were just walking and talking, heading up to Notown Reservoir when the path split. I wasn’t sure which path to take, so we choose one and started walking on it,” Bill began…

Footsteps when no one is there, the ghostly laughter of children… Is America’s oldest house haunted?

It's the oldest timber frame house in America, lived in for generations by the same family and lovingly kept just as it was in its early Colonial days.

But what the Fairbanks House lacks in modern facilities it seems to make for with ... strange spirits.

The house in Dedham, Massachusetts, was built between 1637 and 1641 by English settlers Jonathan and Grace Fairbanks…

"Let´s hop across the border and visit Dover Mass. this week to examine a creature called the Dover Demon.

The Dover Demon was first named by Loren Coleman, a cryptozoologist, but it seems a misnomer. The demon actually appeared to be fairly small and frail.

It was first spied on the evening of April 21, 1977, on Farm Street near the outskirts of Dover. A teenager named Bill Bartlett was driving with a couple of friends, just cruising the streets, when one of them spied something strange by the side of the road...

UFO photographs - Salem, Massachusetts, July 16, 1952

This photograph was taken by Shell Apert, a USCG seaman, on July 16, 1952 when he saw four bright lights in formation over Salem, Massachusetts. When he first saw the objects he called another Guardsman to see the lights, but in those few seconds the lights had become dimmer. When they brightened again, he quickly took a single photograph through the window of the office. This photograph was investigated by Project Blue Book and was considered “unexplained”.

USO spotted from casino cruise ship in Massachusetts

Report from MUFON:

Date of event: July 18, 2008
Location of event: Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary, Massachusetts

On Friday July 18, 2008, at about 10:30 PM, a co-worker and I were taking a 15 minute break on the stern of the SS HORIZONS EDGE BOSTON, a casino cruise ship and company I was employed for at the time out of Lynn, Massachusettes. We were drifting on the outer edge of the Stellwagen Bank Marine Sanctuary during casino hours. As we started to make our way back inside the vessel to return to work, we heard a loud "whooshing" sound from about 10 to 15 degrees off the port bow.

This is not an uncommon occurrence as waves continually hit the bow; especially during inclement weather. But we knew right away the sound was a bit "off." We hurried to the port side of the stern and saw what seemed to be a spectral, greenish, faint-glowing, disc-shaped object (at best estimate, about 50 to 100 feet in diameter and about 500 feet out) come clear out of the water and hover for what seemed to be 45 seconds or so.

We both confirmed with each other, that we could "feel" or somewhat "sense" heat coming from the object... (and subsequently would both later suffer from unusual, yet uneventful bouts of dehydration and cold-like symptoms regardless of the amount of fluids we drank.) The object then rose sharply to about 1000 feet and shot away, aft and ascending, until we couldn't see it anymore... that particular movement of the object took less than 10 seconds... there was absolutely no sound of any kind and the erratic movements it made as it came out of the water, was as if someone were hoisting this thing up on the end of a chain and it sawed a bit back and forth.

I have never seen anything like it before or since. Naturally, I have never mentioned this incident to anyone for fear of any social reprisal... and we have subsequently stopped speaking to each other all together. I have only mentioned it here, and will probably never mention it again. I just had to tell someone.
