  • EDITORIAL

    Hello and welcome to out March issue. This months skies have been a bit of a busy one with numerous UFO reports in the area of Kearsley, Bolton UK. There have been UFO sightings reported numerous times described as red and white hovering objects that spin and move side to side silently. During one such recent report I visited the location and was lucky enough to find a rational explanation. After seeing these strange objects in the sky myself and following them. I eventually came across two men flying remotely piloted crafts.

    These crafts were amazing, around a metre in width with colourful bright light-ing. A demonstration by the pilots shown that they were very technical and had the capabilities of remembering their position in the sky if altered by wind etc. Of course, I can well imagine the more available such items are the more UFO reports are going to be generated. At least... This time... There was a rational explanation. For those interested, I will be lecturing at the Mysterious Earth Conference 2013 this April in Preston along with our excellent Sub Editor Brian Allan. For further details see the Conference Advert within this issue. An interesting issue this month with varied subjects. We hope you enjoy it...

    SUB-EDITORIAL Hello All. This edition of Phenomena contains the usual collection of the weird and wonderful, and one item, this time from Bret Leuder in the USA, takes a look at what may (or indeed may not) be hidden in a mythical hidden world deep beneath our feet. Tales of a mysterious inner earth civilisation have been around for eons and it is known that rumours concerning such a possibility have been floated with various degrees of feasibility and success and included such concepts as Agartha and Shamballah.

    Perhaps the most recent encounter with this inner world was the supposed 1947 flight by Admiral James Byrd, which allegedly, not only flew to the North Pole, but succeeded in entering a gigantic hole at the pole itself, which lead right into the planet. Here the admiral supposedly saw what amounted to a lush, subtropi-cal location with abundant greenery etc. There are also claims that UFOs come; not from outer space, but from inside the earth; in other words from hiding places in truly immense subterranean caverns. These UFOs have supposedly Nazi origins and based on tales that at the end of WWII, large numbers of Nazi scientists escaped the fall of Germany in submarines to a last redoubt called Neuschwabenland in the far, frozen north. Then of course came the years of speculation from Richard Shaver in the so called Shaver Mysteries and con-cerned another two mutually antagonistic subterranean races, the Deros and the Teros. A fascinating if unlikely subject, but nonetheless well worth a look. In addition, Robert Snow invites us along to an extremely eventful investigation at the notoriously haunted Woodchester mansion, where our very own editor Steve Mera has recently attended whilst filming for a new BBC TV Series. All this and much more, so pour a cup of coffee, sit back and enjoy...
