Apparently whatever happened in Russia in 1908 has scientific explanations...

actually, i just picked up a national geographic at the airport yesterday, and it had a long article about asteroids/meteors/comets that are scheduled to come really close to hitting our planet, and they had a little sidebar page about Tunguska.  apparently some scientist has proven that it was a comet that came in so fast through the atmosphere that it exploded above the surface, heat blasting everything.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dyatlov_pass_accident

Quote
The mysterious circumstances of the hikers' deaths have inspired much speculation. Investigations of the deaths suggest that the hikers tore open their tent from within, departing barefoot in heavy snow; while the corpses show no signs of struggle, one victim had a fractured skull, two had broken ribs, and one was missing her tongue.[1] The victims' clothing contained high levels of radiation.[1] Soviet investigators determined only that "a compelling unknown force" had caused the deaths, barring entry to the area for years thereafter.[1] The causes of the accident remain unclear.[2][3]

Heh...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kelly-Hopkinsville_encounter

Quote
Multiple eyewitnesses would claim that, for several hours stretching over a late evening and early morning, they repeatedly saw five glowing, silvery creatures, each three feet tall and seeming to float above the ground. The witnesses additionally claimed to have used firearms to shoot at the creatures, with little or no effect.

Jerome Clark writes that "nvestigations by police, Air Force officers, and civilian ufologists found no evidence of a hoax. Even Blue Book confessed to being stumped. So was [Isabel] Davis, one of the most hardheaded of UFO investigators."[2] It should be noted, however, that Project Blue Book never formally investigated the case.

Ah...the "Wow" signal:

http://www.planetary.org/news/2001/0117_The_Wow_Signal_Still_Eludes.html

Quote
Whatever happened to the "Wow!" signal, the most promising transmission from space ever detected by SETI? Ever since it was recorded almost a quarter of a century ago, SETI enthusiasts have speculated about its origin and wondered whether it could be a beacon from an alien civilization. The latest attempt to relocate the signal, reported in the January 10 issue of the Astrophysical Journal, was led by longtime SETI researcher Robert Gray with funding from The Planetary Society. But although Gray and his team used the entire Very Large Array in New Mexico, and although they detected many faint objects in the signal's general vicinity, they found no trace of an alien transmission. As of now, the "Wow" signal remains as enigmatic as ever..

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rendlesham_Forest_Incident

Quote
The Rendlesham Forest Incident is the name given to a series of reported sightings of unexplained lights and the alleged landing of an extraterrestrial spacecraft in Rendlesham Forest, Suffolk, England in late December 1980. It is perhaps the most famous UFO event to have happened in Britain, ranking amongst the best-known UFO events worldwide. It has been compared to the Roswell UFO incident in the United States and is commonly referred to as "Britain's Roswell" or the "English Roswell".

The tape is linked at Wikipedia.  Here's a transcript:

the best number station in my opinion is the one thats in the middle of bumfuck russia that did nothing but broadcast a series of 3 tones for 27 years, then, in the middle of the night, the routine was interupted by a voice saying something in russian, twice.

then it went back to broadcasting the tones.

some guy actually managed to record it, ill try to post the link if i can remember the name of the station, its the scariest fucking thing ever if you really think about it.

edit: heres a page on it, its called ubv-76 and it has a recording, i dont know if its the recording of the guy interupting it but you get the jist of how creepy it would be.

I tried to translate, but it's super garbled. Here is my best attempt:

<beginning is super garbled. part of it sounds like "seventy-six". a short part is repeated twice. i think the message is something like "this is site one hundred and seventy six".>

<more garbled stuff>

<something ending in "two">

thirty-six (or 33?), ninety-three, eighty-two

<garbled>

six, two, six, nine, one

<garbled>

<something like "... of the code">

<some names?>

tatiana

three, six, nine, three, eight, two, seven (or 8?), zero

<long pause>

<then the message is apparently repeated, starting with the "seventy six" thing>

seven hundred two (or 602?), six hundred ninety one

<garbled>

thirty six, ninety three, eighty two, <two digit number ending in 0>

<garbled>

six, two, six, nine, one

<garbled>

tatiana

<garbled>

three, six, nine, three, eight, two, <8 or 7>, zero

I want to see the other two!  The police aren't sharing them for some reason... They're probably horrible.
