The following accounts of strange events remain the subject of mysteries and miracles to this day - the stories themselves are truly chilling in their
details. In some of these cases extensive scientific & forensic analysis has been undertaken leaving skeptics and believers scratching their heads as
to the cause and/or anomolies surrounding the case(s).
Although I have provided only a very brief account of the particular event and where possible pictures, I would encourage you to hit the link for the
full story. There is a wealth of information from various sources online if you wish to explore any in further detail.
1. The Bloop
2. The Versailles Time-Slip.
This sound was repeatedly recorded during summer, 1997 on the Equatorial Pacific Ocean autonomous hydrophone array. The sound rises rapidly in
frequency over about one minute and was of sufficient amplitude to be heard on multiple sensors, at a range of over 5,000 km. It yields a general
location near 50oS; 100oW. The origin of the sound is unknown.
It originated from a point about 1,500 miles west of the southern Chilean coast. It was powerful enough to be picked up on sensors located up to
3,000 miles away, making it one of the most powerful noises ever recorded underwater. The sound lasted for just over a minute and has not been
It should be pointed out now that the NOAA has checked with the Navy and other groups to rule out human-made sources in this and the rest of these

3. The Taman Shud Case
In August of 1901, Charlotte Anne Moberly and Eleanor Jourdain decided to visit the Palace of Versailles in France. As they were not impressed
with the palace after touring it, they decided to walk through the gardens to the Petit Trianon. On the way, however, they learned that they were
closed to the public that day and, instead, decided to explore the grounds some more.
Soon, the two ladies were lost and, as they put it, overcome with a feeling of weariness and oppression. Soon, they began to notice things that were
out of place -- dignified officials in three cornered hats, an old plough and farmhouse, and other people and things that appeared as through they
belonged more in a wax museum than the streets of 20th century Paris.
After many specific events, they eventually rejoined the party of other visitors. The strange feelings and visions of the past had vanished.
It was many months before the women told of their strange encounters. Visiting Versailles sometime later, the women were not able to find the
landmarks that they had noticed during the incident.

4. The Cokeville mystery
During the early morning of December 1, 1948, the body of a man was discovered on Somerton Beach in Australia. Little did the the authorities on
the scene realize that they were about to witness the birth of a very strange mystery. The man discovered that day was in peak physical condition and
as dressed very well, but all of the labels on his clothing had been removed. In his pocket was a train ticket for a ride he obviously missed on
account of his being dead and all.
Although investigators believed that the man must have been poisoned, no traces of any foreign agent was discovered during an autopsy. Some still
maintain that the Somerton Man died of some type of undetectable poisoning because there was no other explanation for his death. A month later police
discovered a brown suitcase at Adelaide Railway station that might have belonged to the mysterious Somerton Man. The brown suitcase had its label
removed just like the unidentified man’s clothing and inside were clothes that had also had the labels removed. Inside the bag was a stenciling
brush, electrician’s screwdriver, and a pair of scissors normally used for stenciling. Unfortunately, the suitcase proved to be another dead end.
With all leads non-existent, the months passed by until June of 1949 when investigators had the body reexamined and discovered a secret pocket in the
man’s clothing that contained a scrap of paper with the words “Taman Shud” printed on it.
Upon a closer inspection of the paper it was discovered that the scrap came from a collection of poems entitled The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam. This
discovery led to a media blitz in an attempt to find the book the page was torn from. The campaign was successful as a man stepped forward with a rare
first edition copy of Edward Fitzgerald’s translation of The Rubaiyat, which he said he found in the back seat of his car the night before the
unidentified man’s body was found. In the back of the book scrawled out faintly in pencil was a strange code. Also written in the book was the phone
number of a former nurse who, while serving in World War II, gave a copy of The Rubaiyat to an army officer named Alfred Boxall. Boxall's copy of The
Rubaiyat was still intact, though, and both parties denied any connection to the unidentified dead man.
Even now, after over 60 years, the mystery of the Somerton Man remains unsolved. No one knows who he was, what the phrase "Taman Shud" was supposed
to mean, or what the mysterious code is supposed to represent. There has been speculation over the years that the man was a spy, but none of it has
remotely been proven.
The Cokeville Miracle is about an Elementary School hostage crisis that occurred on May 16, 1986, in Cokeville, Wyoming, United States, when
former town marshal David Young, and his wife Doris Young, took 167 children and adults hostage at Cokeville Elementary School. David Young entered
the school with his wife transporting a large gasoline-filled device that appeared to be a bomb. At one point Doris Young lifted her arm sharply and
the bomb went off prematurely, injuring Doris Young while David Young was out of the room. Returning to the scene, David Young shot his wife, then
himself. All the hostages escaped, though 79 were later hospitalized with burns and injuries.
Bomb experts remained baffled as the explosive should have leveled the entire building. The children maintain that they were visited by Angels whom
told them to remain calm and that they would be saved
