A few mysteries ...

Ghost photograph?

This November 28, 1968 photo taken by Greenfield was recently reexamined by James Choron. Upon investigation, Choron wrote to Greenfield:

"My initial findings are as follows:

  1. The anomaly present is not a flaw of processing or initial photographer error.
  2. The anomaly is clearly in focus within the context of the overall photo, and is clearly a separate and distinct entity within the field of focus and target area of the photo.
  3. The anomaly appears to be a semi-solid object, composed of an undetermined material.
  4. The anomaly is not a product of any known flaw of film or chemistry.
  5. The anomaly is not produced by any known flaw such as the common light leak or any known defect of apparatus.
  6. While it is impossible to determine the exact range of the anomaly from camera, it is obvious that the anomaly is a three dimensional object.
  7. Under a magnification of 600x the anomaly appears to be a human figure, apparently female, and partially decomposed. The anomaly is suspended, without any obvious support in mid-air, and is clearly visible only from the shoulders upward. There is no discernable evidence of any wire, prop, support or other means of suspension apparent in the photograph.
  8. At a magnification of 1,800x, viewed in segments of 5 degrees arc per segment, the results are identical to those stated above at lower magnification.

More to come (I hope). This is a GOOD ONE..."


Map of Antarctica

THE ORONTEUS FINAEUS MAP OF ANTARCTICA OF 1532

One of a number of Medieval and Renaissance maps compiled at a time when much earlier source maps from remote antiquity were apparently still available. Antique maps and now lost manuscripts survived until the 1400s and beyond, for example, in Spain, and in Constantinople, which only fell to the Turks in 1453. Some of these materials turned up as recently as World War I. Hapgood's team at Keene State College, who analyzed the Finaeus map, submitted it to Captain (later Lt. Col.) Lorenzo W. Burroughs and his team at the Cartographic Section at Westover AFB. Burroughs wrote Hapgood: "It is our opinion that the accuracy of the cartographic features shown...suggest, beyond doubt, that it also was compiled from accurate source maps of Antartica ...the original source maps must have been compiled at a time when the land mass and inland waterways of the continent were relatively free of ice..." Col. Burroughs later was a leading analyst for the National Photographic Interpretation Center, a joint CIA/DOD high level intelligence asset.
