James Fox to Announce $100,000 UFO Reward for Proof of an ET Spacecraft (EXCLUSIVE)

Filmmaker James Fox will award the money to anyone who can prove that some UFOs are alien in origin.

Fox, who previously directed "Out of the Blue" and "I Know What I Saw" is expected to announce the challenge at the 22nd International UFO Congress which begins on February 27th. It is believed the prize is being offered as part of a promotion for his latest film "The 701" which is inspired by the infamous Project Blue Book.

"We're offering a $100,000 reward for the best proof that some UFOs are alien spacecraft," Fox told the Huffington Post. "This material can be in the form of a photograph, video or film footage or debris from an alleged crash site. But it must be able to withstand scientific scrutiny by our chosen panel."

Nearly every day, videos, photos and eyewitness accounts of UFOs pop up on the Internet.
Some are hoaxes. Some are quirks in the weather. Some sightings are never explained and forevermore remain UFOs.

The photo above, taken by Hannah McRoberts on Vancouver Island in British Columbia in 1981, is considered one of the most credible UFO pictures.

Still, never has there been widely accepted positive proof of an extraterrestrial spacecraft, though there are those who believe various government agencies around the world have conspired to hide the truth.
Now, however, if someone can prove otherwise, they will be $100,000 richer.

Filmmaker James Fox will make this announcement as part of the promotion for his upcoming movie The 701, inspired by the Air Force's two-decade UFO study, Project Blue Book.

The massive study into 12,618 UFO sightings, which ended in 1969, was able to explain away all but 701 of these sightings.

Fox, who previously directed Out of the Blue (2002) and I Know What I Saw (2009), will reveal the $100K challenge at the 22nd International UFO Congress (IUFOC), which begins Feb. 27, in Fountain Hills, Ariz.

"One of the aspects that sets our film apart is the producers' commitment to bringing forth never-before-seen evidence. As part of this effort, we're offering a $100,000 reward for the best proof that some UFOs are alien spacecraft," Fox told The Huffington Post exclusively.

"This material can be in the form of a photograph, video or film footage or debris from an alleged crash site. But it must be able to withstand scientific scrutiny by our chosen panel.

"Our intent is not to create another television UFO documentary, but to produce a feature film for worldwide theatrical release -- 'The 701' -- the most compelling film ever produced on UFOs," Fox said.
"701 is the number the government doesn't want you to know about. The U.S. Air Force had a serious problem, starting in the late 1940s. Technological devices were invading our airspace with total impunity. Glinting, metallic discs, which could accelerate and maneuver in ways hard to imagine, were being seen in incredible numbers by reliable witnesses. Many of them were pilots."

Fox, one of the co-stars of National Geographic's Chasing UFOs, will be sharing the IUFOC podium over the five-day event with former nuclear physicist Stanton Friedman; ex-FBI Special Agent (and host of the Syfy Channel's Fact, or Faked) Ben Hansen; skeptical research scientist Ben McGee; former UK Ministry of Defense officer Nick Pope; and regression therapist Barbara Lamb, among others, presenting a compelling variety of topics, including:
  • Ancient Astronauts and Technologies
  • Physics of Space Travel
  • A New Look At The Cosmos
  • ET/Human Hybrids
  • Close Encounters of The 4th Kind: ET Contact
Watch IUFOC's Jason McClellan and Syfy Channel's Ben Hansen talk about a planned night vision skywatch at the upcoming International UFO Congress:

Congress co-organizers Jason McClellan and Maureen Elsberry host "Spacing Out," a weekly web series that explores UFOs, outer space and the search for extraterrestrial life.

McClellan says the IUFOC, now in its 22nd year, fights to maintain credibility, a not-so-easy task given how many people regard the search for extraterrestrial life.

"Putting aside the giggle factor often associated with UFOs, people can come here and share their stories, experiences and personal viewpoints without being ridiculed," McClellan told HuffPost.

An interesting daily conference activity invites people to attend special experiencer sessions, led by licensed therapists, and which is closed to all press and media.

"It's a place where people can go and share their experiences," said Elsberry. "If they think they've had an experience, whether it be an abduction or any type of close encounter, they can tell it to a professional and share it with other people -- anybody can go and share their story. People can try and find some answers to what they're experiencing. Honestly, for many people, that's the main reason they come to the conference."


Once the $100,000 UFO challenge is announced, it's expected that many people will submit items they feel are credible contenders for the reward. On the other hand, the ease by which UFO photos can be made these days may account for many of the entries.

The image above is an enlargement from the main picture at the top of the story. Could this be a candidate for a $100,000 payoff? Let the contest begin.

Big Foot Real?

DENVER (CBS4) – Bigfoot is real. That’s according to a group of Colorado researchers who say they have hard evidence proving its existence.

Researcher Dave Paulides is convinced the reality of Bigfoot isn’t as fuzzy as the photos from people who claim to have seen the mythological creature.

“This DNA is like nothing else in the world,” Paulides said.

Paulides says Bigfoot looks approximately 7 to 8 feet tall and weighs in at a whopping 800 to 1,000 pounds.

“It’s easy to say a lot of things are crazy. If you lived underground your whole life, the belief that 400 people could fly in a plane would sound crazy,” Paulides said.

Paulides says his research group has collected hundreds of samples of DNA evidence. He focused his search in Northern California’s redwoods. He says strands of hair are from a Sasquatch, genetically tested to reveal a previously unknown species.

“This isn’t an animal. This is a subspecies of a human, and we believe they travel in groups,” Paulides said.

Not a single research institution in the country has confirmed the DNA test results, but Paulides says there are thousands of sightings a year, from California to Tennessee, including dozens in Colorado.

“Colorado Parks and Wildlife does not currently list ‘Sasquatch,’ ‘Yeti,’ ‘Bigfoot,’ ‘The Abominable Snowman,’ or ‘Harry’ (of ‘Harry and the Hendersons’) as any of the more than 900 diverse species that are native to Colorado,” the organization said in a statement.

“I think that the government probably is aware of the subject, but it’s difficult to give acknowledgement to something that they obviously can’t control,” Paulides said.

Paulides says he’s surprised more people haven’t seen Bigfoot. He believes there could be as many as 50,000 in the wilderness.

Nam Koo Terrace – The Wan Chai Haunted House

Nam Koo Terrace – The Wan Chai Haunted House
Ghosts and Hauntings

November 2003 a group of eight middle school students decided to visit the local areas haunted location. Their plan was to stay the night in the hopes of getting a glimpse of one of the resident spirits.

Their hopes high for a night of mystery, intrigue and a few steps will have no doubt turned to uncertainty as they crossed the threshold into Nam Koo Terrace. It is said a feeling of appalling loneliness that is also confusingly felt along with the feeling of a crowded space hits those who enter the property.

This abandoned house is also known locally as the Wan Chai Haunted House and its legends no doubt grew to infamy as verbal recounts of what happened this night passed from neighbour to neighbour, through the students of the local schools and child to child in the playground located close by.

That night the students set up their small camp in one of the empty rooms and decided to attempt to contact the spirits through their version of a ouija board. It was during this session that three of the girls in the group became agitated, their minds filling with terrible images.

One of the girls then completely flipped and became psychotic.

The students fled the building but as they made it to the gate the girl who had been most affected took on a strange persona and would not step off the property. It was at this stage the other two girls affected during the ouija session heard a male voice calling them to the second floor.

The police were called and when they tried to forcefully remove the girl she snapped and attacked them. It took both police officers to remove the girl and she was sent off to a hospital for psychiatric assessment and treatment, along with two of the other students who were emotionally affected by the nights activities.

The Oriental Daily newspaper ran the story and soon many other papers and media outlets followed suit. The legend of Nam Koo Terrace was now fully lodged in everyone's psyche but the legends of ghosts and hauntings of this location go back quite a time.

The two story building was built in a period between 1915 and 1921 in the Wan Chai district of Hong Kong, China. The land was purchased and leased by prominent Chinese businessman 'To Chun-man'. The house itself was designed to mimic European style houses while still incorporating facets of feng shui.

In the 1940's the Japanese invaded and occupied Hong Kong. During this period the Japanese military turned Nam Koo Terrace, along with many other buildings in the district, into a military brothel. It remained as a brothel for four years until 1945.

It was during this period that the legends began starting with tales of local women being taken to the 'comfort house' to be repeatedly raped by the Japanese soldiers before being tortured and killed. Many of these women were said to have been decapitated by the soldiers before being dumped to be found by their friends and relatives.

Nam Koo Terrace is also known as a suicide house, a location where people come to end their own lives. As recently as 2010 bodies have been recovered from the rooms of the house or cut down from the branches of the gardens trees. It is not known how many people have ended their lives in the house but estimates put it at higher than 30.

Murder is also said to have taken place on the grounds several times.

Still, even with all the dark history and the hauntings people like to venture to the overgrown building. Urban explorers love to scale the sides of the derelict home or venture into the below ground 'secret' entrance.

The hauntings are made up of visions of headless or bloody women, their cries piercing the mind as blocking your ears does not lessen their impact. A man in black has been seen wandering the building and it is thought it was his voice the girls heard on that night in 2003.

'Spectral fires' have been reported but these at least can be chalked up to the squatters who have called the building home on and off through the years.

People who have entered the building say there is just something plain wrong with the feel of the place. What it feels like at night they are not quite sure as not many people are brave, or stupid enough, to visit it after the sun goes down.

Nam Koo Terrace is a Grade 1 Historical Building and as such is likely to stay around for a long time to come. Hopewell Holdings who plan to develop the area has stated that they aim to restore the old building and preserve its 90 years of history.

The Lady in White of Bachelor’s Grove

The Lady in White of Bachelor’s Grove
Paranormal Photos

In 1991, Ghost Research Society (GRS) investigator Jude Huff took many photos of the Bachelor’s Grove Cemetery located in the woods near Midlothian, Illinois. The GRS team had ventured out to the cemetery to explore the claims of paranormal happenings amongst the overgrown graves.

The team members walked through the cemetery in small groups, each holding a map and were told to record any changes in EMF and any psychic/anomalous experiences they may have had. The maps were compared, and several spots that overlapped showed in the comparisons.

The team members returned to those areas and did more in depth investigating, including taking many photographs.

It was upon development of these photos that the ‘Lady in White’ appeared, sitting on a headstone carved with a checker board pattern. No one was in the shot at the time the photos were taken, and no one in GRS was wearing the clothes seen on the figure in the photograph.

The woman can be seen sitting, legs to the front, with her hands in her lap. She has long hair (many believe this to be brown, although it is only a black and white image) and a full length dress. Many believe the dress to be a burial shroud, while others believe it is just an old fashioned light coloured dress.

The loose parts of her dress and areas around her head appear to be semi transparent. Everyone in the team was understandably stunned, as were the media, who soon snapped up the story and put it into print.
It is considered one of the top ten ghost photos of all time.
Who is this mysterious figure and why can she be seen staring off into the cemetery?

Bachelor’s Grove is no stranger to experiences of a potentially paranormal kind. These stories date as far back as the 1950′s, but with a location such as this, it would not be a surprise to find stories going back even further.

The tales take on many forms. The strangest concerns the road that leads to the cemetery itself. To access Bachelor’s Grove you must travel along a dark, long dirt track chocked by trees encroaching along the path, in many places blotting out the sun as the ancient boughs join overhead.

It is apparently quite freaky in the daytime, let alone terrifying at night. Back in the 50′s a story circulated that those who travelled the path would inexplicably see an old white farmhouse between the trunks and branches of the trees. Upon closer inspection, the house will have inexplicably disappeared. It is likely linked to the death of a farmer, who passed while ploughing the lands near the cemetery in 1870. He, his horse and the plough all fell into the nearby lagoon, drowning. Forest rangers have told tales how they have witnessed a farmer ploughing those fields, appearing and disappearing amongst the trees.

More modern stories concern strange lights in the cemetery. For the past forty-odd years it has been a place for adventurous (and no doubt horny) young people, wanting to hang out and ‘try their luck’. It was also no doubt a place to venture on a dare, or just for thrills.

It was these young people who started to report the lights. White flashes have been seen amongst the now overgrown stones, and paths between graves. Stories of robed monks were shared, though these seemed to die out in the mid-80′s.

In more recent times the stories evolved to include physical contact with unseen entities. The contact is always quite sudden and people claim the hands are clammy/sweaty, with the wetness lingering even as the shock of unexplainably being grabbed by an unseen force works its way throughout the body.
However, the most famous ghost is The White Lady. She has been seen amongst the graves of Bachelor’s Grove for decades. Many believe that her name is Mrs Rogers, a lady who buried in the cemetery next to her son. I can not find out why people believe the figure is Mrs Rogers, but the name seemed to have stuck.
The figure is also referred to as the ‘Madonna of Bachelor’s Grove’, no doubt owing to the light coloured nature of her flowing dress.
Since 2004, the woman has been referred to by another name. Mid West Haunts has spent many years investigating the old cemetery, and on one of these occasions they snapped a photo of the lady in white. She is seen standing amongst the trees in the area of a headstone for the grave of Dora Newman. Since that time MWH has been referring to the Lady in White as Dora Newman, hopefully she now has the correct name!

New planets discovered: Kepler 20 e and Kepler 20 f

The discovery of alien life or Earth-like planets and the implications to the world was a crucial item on the agenda at the annual World Economic Forum, or WEF, in Davos, Switzerland.

World business leaders and prominent politicians gathered to discuss issues or risks that the world may have to confront in the next decade.

So how did ETs become part of the mix?

In conjunction with the international science journal, Nature, the WEF came up with five "X Factor" items which it refers to as "unheralded dangers that sneak up on us."

One of those risk issues that Earth and its inhabitants may soon face is "the possible social consequences of contact with alien life," according to Nature.

The WEF Global Risks report for 2013 states that "Given the pace of space exploration, it is increasingly conceivable that we may discover the existence of alien life or other planets that could support human life. ... In 10 years' time, we may have evidence not only that Earth is not unique, but also that life exists elsewhere in the universe."

A primary reason why astronomers and astro-biologists are leaning in this direction is because of the tremendous success of NASA's Kepler spacecraft.

"It was only in 1995 that we first found evidence that other stars also have planets orbiting them. Now, thousands of 'exoplanets' revolving around distant stars have been detected. NASA's Kepler mission to identify Earth-sized planets...has been operating for only three years and has already turned up thousands of candidates, including one the size of Earth," according to the WEF report.

The risk factor of all of this comes with the long-term psychological and philosophical implications that will accompany the discovery of alien life.

"It will suggest that life is as natural and as ubiquitous a part of the universe as the stars and galaxies," the report continued. "The discovery of even simple life would fuel speculation about the existence of other intelligent beings and challenge many assumptions that underpin human philosophy and religion."

The Voice of Russia notes that the WEF team "urges the global elite to prepare themselves and their nations for such a discovery. The scientists suggest that new funding and new brain power will be needed to overcome the challenges that humanity will face as a result of its encounter with an extraterrestrial civilization."
In case you were wondering, the other "X Factor" risk items considered by the WEF were:

  • Runaway Climate Change
  • Significant Cognitive Enhancement
  • Rogue Deployment of Geoengineering
  • Costs of Living Longer

A new Yeti resort in Siberia is to be opened to encourage tourists to find the elusive Abominable Snowman

By The Siberian Times reporter
15 January 2013
The development is in an area of the world that claims to have one of the highest number of sightings of a legendary creature also known as Bigfoot.

Igor Idimeshev, 48: 'We are building the Yeti Park now, and of course there will be a chance for people who come here to see creature. For me having Yetis here means something much more than the tourist attraction'.
The new Yeti Park will be constructed at Sheregesh ski resort, in the stunning Shoria Mountain area of Kemerovo region in southern Siberia. The development comes with a pledge by the region's governor Aman Tuleyev to offer a one million rouble ($33,000) reward to anyone who can catch a Yeti and prove its existence.

'I'll pay a million to anyone who will find the Yeti and bring it to see the me. I'll sit down with him, chat and have a cup of tea', he promised.

Critics see the Yeti Park - with a hotel and a themed children's playground - as a crude attempt to bring in both Russian and foreign tourists.

'We can see how Scotland exploits the Loch Ness Monster, who why can't we do the same with the Yeti?' admitted one official. 'We hope people will come from all over the world.'

Recent tours to remote caves in the region have found samples of Yeti hair, though various promises of definitive DNA research on them have somehow failed to materialise.

Despite this, local officials insist the Yeti is real, even if Igor Idimeshev, 48, deputy head of the local administration in Sheregesh, and the man behind the new park, has a novel explanation for its existence.
'I've seen this creature several times', he said. 'I think it is most likely of the extraterrestrial origin, not from this world. The Yeti might suddenly disappear and re-materialise. Another extraordinary thing is that Yeti's hair is luminous at night, and also that the Yeti can walk on water.'

Later in an interview with The Siberian Times, he elaborated on his close encounters with the Yeti, despite admitting his mother told him not to tell people because they would not believe him.

'I've met these creatures several times here in Tashtagol district and also in the area where I was born in the village of Toz close to Zelenaya Mountain.

'I saw it several times before I moved here to Sheregesh. Each time I was on my own, I was hunting. The only person I ever told everything in detail to was my mother - and she taught me to keep it to myself.
'People will simply think you've made it up', she told me. 

'We people of Shoria do not use the name 'Yeti', instead we call these creatures Big Men. Every man round here sees him when he hunts. It's all right to mention the fact of meeting - but we don't go into the details of it, like where exactly it was, what he did do, or your luck will be gone forever.

'The feeling is one of fear. It is a fear that you cannot explain rationally. You feel yourself very scared and tense at the same time. One of the closest comparisons is the feeling of looking into a wolf's eyes. If you've ever seen them - I mean a wild wolf,  not a caged animal - you remember a feeling of them being something very unusual, alien.

'Like with a wolf, you can see a Yeti's eyes from a distance of some 100-150 metres. They are quite hypnotising. And when I saw the Yeti's eyes my only thought was that they are not from Earth - they are clearly of an extraterrestrial nature.

'To me, the Yeti is an extraterrestrial creature. I believe that it is like a controller to look over things here on Earth.

I can understand why people do not notice creations like this. We were designed and created to live in a very smart way to protect our minds from information that can damage them. Put it simply - we ignore things that we can't explain, which is very wise, people otherwise would go insane.

On more mundane aspects of the Yeti, he said: 'I would not be able to give an estimate of the Yeti's size.
'It certainly looked big. Bigger than a human. I didn't go to have a look at his footprints, or check for any other material proof of his existence. Believe me, this is not what you want to do right after seeing it. You feel scared.
'We are building the Yeti Park now, and of course there will be a chance for people who come here to see creature. For me having Yetis here means something much more than the simple tourist attraction'.

He stressed: 'We will have a dedicated plot of land for Yeti park, where anyone can see it. We will organise a museum, exhibiting all Yeti-related objects, like the trees they make into arches, and many other things. This location will be used for all future conferences and seminars devoted to the Yeti'.
The Yeti theme is 'important for the region', he said.

Last year Professor Valentin Sapunov claimed a population of 200 Yeti exist in  the Kemerovo, Khakassia and Altai regions of Siberia. Sapunov is a doctor of Biological Sciences and Chief Fellow of Russian State HydroMeteorological University.

But his claims on tests of hair found in a cave in this region, which suggested they belonged to an unknown mammal, were strongly disputed by Professor Oleg Pugachev, Director of the Zoological Institute of Russian Academy of Sciences.

In September last year, three separate sightings of Yeti were reported in southern Siberia.

Mysterious purple spheres found in desert

A couple from Tucson were perplexed when they came across a number of the objects while out sightseeing. The strange spheres were found piled up in significant quantities, some of them watery and others translucent. "We were taking photos around the area and we just.... I mean, how could you miss this ?" said Geraldine

Vargas who discovered the spheres with her husband. Reporters for TV station KGUN-9 were the first on the scene and filmed the spectacle for a televised broadcast One theory to explain the strange objects is that the spheres are a type of slime, mould or jelly. Another suggestion is that they are an artificial product designed to absorb and hold moisture for use in hydrating plants, however there is no explanation for how they turned up in the middle of the desert. "It's just one of those things that you've never seen before," Geraldine added.

The Amityville Ghost Boy Paranormal Photos 1: The Worlds Most Famous Unexplained Photos

At approximately 6:30pm November 13, 1974, 23 year old Ronald DeFeo Jr charged into his local bar in Amityville, New York. The cause for his urgency was that his parents had been shot. Before long DeFeo and a small group of patrons from the bar went to the DeFeo home at 112 Ocean Avenue and soon found that Ronald's parents were dead.

After a emergency phone call to the police the house was searched and another four members of the family were found dead within the house. All were killed with a single shot except for the parents who each bore two bullet wounds. Ronald DeFeo was apparently the only survivor of the massacre.

At first Ronald DeFeo (the eldest son) made claims the murders were carried out by a mob hit man but soon after the police pointed out inconsistencies within his story Ronald admitted his guilt.

A year later DeFeo was trialled, found guilty on six accounts of second degree murder and for each he received a life sentence. The trial was no open and shut case as DeFeo made insanity pleas and testified he heard voices in his head and had been possessed by the devil who forced him to commit the murders.

That would have been the end of that but...

In 1975 George and Kathy Lutz purchased the DeFeo home where they say they spent twenty eight days of terror before fleeing.

It was not long until 'ghost hunters' and 'paranormal investigators' made for the property and according to neighbours the numbers and different persona's of those who travelled to the location were as extreme as the claimed hauntings.

There is plenty of information available online about the hauntings (and claims to the contrary) so we will skip these and get straight to the photo in question.

Twenty days after the Lutz family had fled in terror from their Amityville home investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren took up the case. The paranormal investigation took place without the Lutz's being present as they refused to re-enter the house.

It was on one such investigation that Gene Campbell a professional photographer set up his camera on the second floor landing facing several of the bedrooms (where several of the murders took place). The camera was set to take photos automatically and periodically using infra-red film.

The camera took roll after roll of photos and after the investigation the camera was packed up.

The photo was not found or shown to the world until nearly three years later. Out of all the shots on all the rolls of film none showed anything out of the ordinary except for this one frame which depicts what looks like a young boy peering out over the banister.

Many people say the image resembles that of John Mathew DeFeo who was only nine years old when he was murdered by his older brother just a few short years before hand. Others say it could just be one of the investigators accidentally caught on film.

What do you think?
Could at least one of the DeFeo's still be haunting the home where they tragically lost their lives?
