Shell-Shaped UFO Sighting Over Siberia

Two young Siberians filmed a mysterious bright, shell-shaped UFO flying through the night sky over Siberia. Footage uploaded to YouTube shows the strange UFO as it floated in the sky over Cherlak, in the Cherlaksky District of Omsk Oblast in Siberia, Russia, on Wednesday, June 29, 2016, according to the Siberian Times.

Petr Mironov, 22, described the UFO as a "kind of flame" and said he was "holding it [the camera] firm" as it allegedly passed over Cherlak on Wednesday, the Siberian Times reported. "Look, it's a kind of flame. You see the ball. It is cone-shaped, and we're not seeing this with our eyes," he said.

The bright light allegedly seen in the night sky on 29 June sometimes seemed circular, other times long and narrow, if not square, as it flounced around the sky. Later it appeared to remain more still. The man who filmed the 'visitation' over Cherlak, Petr Mironov, 22, insisted he did not move the camera, and said it was the 'UFO' that was shaking. On the bizarre video, he says: 'Here it is. Wow. I'm filming it. Look, it flounces. Look, we do not see this but the camera does. No, I'm not shaking the camera, I'm holding it firm. 'Look, it's a kind of flame. You see the ball. It is cone-shaped, and we're not seeing this with our eyes.' 


His girlfriend Tatiana Kopylova, 23, who uploaded the footage, said that a number of cone or diamond-shaped objects apparently flew over the Irtysh River for about two hours.

However a local astronomer claims the cameraman may have been focusing as close as he could on the star or a satellite and the movement is the shaking of the camera.

Vladimir Krupko told OmskZdes : "I'm sure that we see a starry sky being filmed. But there is a lack of information on the time of the shooting. This and the fact that they filmed the video using 'close-up' doesn't allow me to say which part of the sky was filmed.

Legend of The Knockers

The Knocker, Knacker, Bwca (Welsh), Bucca (Cornish) or Tommyknocker (US) is a mythical creature in Welsh, Cornish and Devon folklore. They are the equivalent of Irish leprechauns and English and Scottish brownies.

According to Cornish folklore the knocker was the helpful spirit of a previous fatality in the tin mines. A knocker is about 2 feet high, has a disproportionately large head, long beard and weathered, wrinkled skin. Their long arms almost touch the ground and they imitate the miner's clothes in dress, and carry such things as pickaxes and lamps. They inhabited the deepest darkest parts of the mine, and could sometimes be heard knocking and working their own lodes in the darkness. No doubt that any distant creak or rock fall would be amplified in the claustrophobic darkness of the mines. It is no wonder spirits were thought to inhabit these dangerous work places, where thoughts of the supernatural could cause an instant shiver down the spine.
 


The Knockers generally kept to their own company and were thought to be benevolent, knocking at the richest of the lodes and showing themselves only to those that they favoured.

In the 1820s, immigrant Welsh miners brought tales of the knockers and their theft of unwatched items and warning knocks to western Pennsylvania, when they gravitated there to work in the mines. Cornish miners, much sought after in the years following the gold and silver rushes, brought them to California and Nevada.

There were a few musings as to the origin of the Knockers, some thought they were the ghosts of Jews who were working the mines in penance. Another theory suggests they were the spirits of souls who could not gain access to heaven or hell, this is also used as an explanation for wider manifestations of fairies. 
 
The fact that Knockers were also thought to haunt other recesses and wells, suggests the name became mixed in some quarters to describe several types of fairy.

The Curse of the Chain Strangler

In June of 1938, in a little town in Eastern Kentucky, Pruitt returned home after a day of work and expected to find his wife in the kitchen. Instead, he found her in a bedroom with another man. Enraged, Pruitt grabbed a chain and started to strangle her and her lover used the opportunity to flee the scene. After she was dead, Pruitt committed suicide and for pretty obvious reasons, Pruitt’s wife’s family demand that he be buried in another graveyard in another town, and they got their wish. Carl’s body was buried in a cemetery miles away, but that’s when things started getting strange. Carl Pruitt wasn’t exactly resting in peace.

Several weeks later, cemetery workers noticed his grave stone had become discolored in the pattern of a chain, and became frightened. Visitors first began to notice that the patch of grass covering Carl’s grave was always discolored, with the mysterious off-colored grass growing in circular shapes. Eventually the circles began growing together, as many have pointed out, in the shape of a chain. People began to come from all over to see the bizarre markings surrounding the grave of “The Chain Strangler”, and it wasn’t long before someone decided to vandalize Carl’s final resting place. James Collins, a local boy, threw stones at Carl’s grave, and on his way home, the chain came off his bike, strangling him as he wrecked. Jame’s mother, in her grief, destroyed Carl’s grave with a small axe. The next day while hanging out the families laundry, she slipped and strangled on her clothesline.
 
Carl Pruitt

Despite the warnings, there were always a few foolish enough to test the legend themselves, including two police officers who took photos of themselves in front of Carl’s tombstone. After laughing about the silly legend and proving their bravery, the two men left the cemetery only to notice a strange ball of light following their squad car. Terrified, the men began speeding to escape the glowing orb, and in the process, slammed their vehicle into a fence, decapitating one officer with a chain and throwing the other from the car.

By the late 1940s, most people knew better than to tempt Carl’s spirit, but in one final act of disbelief, a man who locals say was intent on destroying the Chain Strangler’s headstone with a hammer was found dead outside the graveyard, the chain used to lock the cemetery gates wrapped around his neck.

Shortly after the incident, a local mining company purchased the land, exhuming the bodies and relocating them to new cemeteries around the country. Carl Pruitt’s infamous marker was removed and disposed of in an unnamed place, and just like that, the murderous ghost of the Chain Strangler seemed to disappear.
