The Jerusalem UFO Video

On January 28th 2011, a mysterious glowing light hovered high above the Dome of the Rock, an ancient Islamic shrine in Jerusalem.The news headlines read: "Holy Smoke - UFO in Jerusalem." Skeptical analyses soon suggested that the video had been faked, but true believers insisted that the videos were legitimate. Finally in March even MUFON, an organization dedicated to proving extraterrestrial visitation, joined the skeptics in branding the whole thing a hoax.

The Mysterious Magnetic Boy

Another weird mystery emerged in February 2011, from the country of Serbia. A seven-year-old boy named Bogdan made international news for his paranormal ability to be ‘magnetic.’ Household objects such as spoons, knives, forks, small plates and small flat glass objects stuck to his skin with almost supernatural ease.It was quite an unexplained mystery until it was pointed out that it was not magnetism, since many of the things were non-metallic. The mysterious ability was in fact due to simple skin friction.

The Beast of Gévaudan

Of all the monsters said to roam the earth, perhaps none was more feared than a mysterious creature that terrorized the French countryside in the 1760s. This monstrous Beast of Gévaudan, killed peasants, farmers, and shepherds.Many believe it was a werewolf; others say it was some sort of supernatural demon, still others insist it was a serial killer. In 2011 the mystery was finally solved; historian Jay M. Smith, convincingly showed that there actually was no singular Beast of Gévaudan responsible for the deaths,in fact the killings were consistent with wolf attacks.

The Chupacabra

Since the mid-1990s, people around the world, and especially in Puerto Rico and Latin America, have reported a bizarre vampire beast which became known as the chupacabra (Spanish for "goat sucker," since it was said to drain blood out of small animals including goats). The monster had long, thin arms and legs, and an alien-like head with red or black eyes. According to the first eyewitness, the chupacabra had two legs, stood 4 to 5 feet tall, and had spikes down its back. Alleged chupacabras sighting in America turned out to be diseased dogs, foxes, and coyotes. New information from researcher Benjamin Radford revealed that Madelyne Tolentino, the original eyewitness, had described a creature she had recently seen in the science-fiction horror film Species as the Chupacabra.

The Russian ET

In April 2011, just a few months after the amazing UFO video footage over Jerusalem came out, a video of what appeared to be an extraterrestrial alien body recovered in Russia. The corpse of the badly-damaged creature which resembles ET is two feet high. Part of the right leg is missing and there are deep holes for eyes and a mouth in a skull-like head. The video's authenticity was fiercely debated, until finally two Russian teens confessed to the hoax; police found the "alien" hidden in one of the teen's bedrooms.
