Paranormal Activity Stafford


(source: Staffs Past Track)

Yesterday this clip was sent to me by the guy who runs a Facebook group called "New Spotted Stafford". Usually, videos of orbs in peoples homes don't really impress me, but as this one comes from a gentleman who lives in a city that boarders Cannock Chase, and as he is a relatively reliable source, I thought i'd post it on the blog and see what people make of it.

You might have to watch the video on full screen to see the objects, but I think it will be worth it.


As these type of clips go, I think this is quite a convincing one, the orbs appear to be moving too fast to be dust particles, and they're movements are too linear to be smoke. 

Could this really be evidence of paranormal activity in whatever form?

Feel free to comment on this post with any suggestions / conclusions. I know the guy who sent it to me really wants to know what you all think.

Thanks guys!

Catch you soon,

Unmanned Drone At Castle Ring




The Iron Age monument at Castle Ring on Cannock Chase has long been an area associated with unusual and unexplained happenings. Werewolves and other monsters are heard and even spotted at the hilltop location almost every year, leaving many local residents fearful of treading on the ancient site after dark. With UFO sightings also occurring there on a monthly basis, I place the ancient site at number one on the Cannock Chase weird list.


A friend uploaded this video to YouTube yesterday and it sincerely blew my mind. It has always been very difficult to accurately describe the Castle Ring monument as it is so damn big. Although there are a few aerial photographs knocking around online, non of them really show the site as a whole, and non of them seem to capture the atmosphere of the location - this video does!

So, give it a watch, and if like me, you think it is a fantastic clip, spread it around.

Enjoy!

It Fell From The Sky



A Cannock Chase resident took this photograph during a particularly bad downpour. She claimed the creature fell out of the sky and landed in her garden. Not recognizing the species, and perplexed by the origin of this alien-looking beast, I was contacted. 

Luckily, thanks to great minds like DR Karl Shuker, the creature was soon identified as a Hawk-moth Caterpillar. This one was apparently ready to shed his skin which helps explain the strange colour and eye shape.

Although the lady believed it had fallen out of the sky (certainly not impossible) it seems much more likely that it fell from a tree in the garden during the heavy rain and lightening.


I didn't really much know about these odd little guys before, but thanks to the picture and the curiosity it caused, you'll be glad to know i'm now a fountain of Hawk-moth knowledge. 


And in other "thunderstorm-related" news....

Over the last few days, with the summer rain falling hard on England, I had a strange feeling that some UFO reports might come in, and it seems I was right....

Local news website Connect Cannock has reported on a UFO sighting from only a few days ago. Although details are sketchy at the moment, I have contacted them and am currently waiting for the witness to get in touch. I hope i'll be able to uncover some more details for you within the next few days, but until then, here is what we know so far:
QUOTE:
"A Connectcannock follower contacted us reporting a potential UFO sighting in the Chase area. The object was described as being a turquoise colour before changing to white, and flying erratically through the sky."
"Is coincidental that the event occurred at the same time as a strong thunderstorm passed through the area?"

Reporting back soon,

Keep watching the skies...... except if it's raining freakishly large insects  ;)
