Creepy drone footage captures abandoned settlement in Greece

Enjoy a flight over a place that as beautiful as it may seem, has a dark history. We fly over the settlement of "Dionysos" near Sitia, Crete. In the late 1990's SOE company presented the ambitious plan for the creation of this settlement. The settlement began to be built, but soon there were quarrels as, among other things, the Analouka Beach next to the settlement collects the most rubbish of the Aegean Sea and so their plans for "idyllic summers in the sand" were reduced to rubble. The current owners are trying to reform the settlement, but it is a difficult project. Check out the cool view from above!

Man Captures Possible Sighting Of UFO Over Sea In Croatia22s

Man Captures Possible Sighting Of UFO Over Sea In Croatia

This is one of those “blink and you’ll miss it” videos where a mysterious silver object appears to emerge suddenly from the sea, soaring high into the air, before disappearing back under the water. Captured on a beautiful, sunny day, the clear blue waters of the ocean look serenely calm. The only sound you can hear is the gently lapping of the water on the rocky shore. On first viewing, it does not look like there is anything unusual happening in this scene at all. The man in the blue shirt emerging from the corner of the shrub appears to be the only subject on the screen. However, if you continue to watch the video, you will probably notice something unusual happening in the background. The three second mark is approximately the place where you will notice something different. In the background towards the left of the screen, you will see a small silver object suddenly comes leaping high into the air, before quickly diving back under the water. When played back at normal speed, it is difficult to tell exactly what it could be. Due to the size of the object and the resolution of the video, it is not clear whether the mystery object is natural or mechanical in nature. At the ten second mark, there is a slow motion, close up of the aforementioned object emerging from the water. Even at this speed and size, it is still not clear what this mysterious object is. It appears to be too fast and large to be a fish, but too small to be a machine. It is unfortunate that the resolution of the video is low, as this limits the amount of details being offered. It is highly likely that the mysterious object made very little noise as the previously mentioned man in the blue shirt, does not seem to have noticed its presence. From the moment that it suddenly blasts out of the water, to the moment it crashes back down with a splash, the man does not seem to have been aware of the presence of the mystery object at all. If it had been an aircraft of some kind, surely the sound of its engines propelling it out of the water, would have aroused the attention of anyone nearby. It could also be sea creature, such as a whale breaching as it comes to the surface of the water to breathe. This seems like the most likely explanation as this is a common sight and normal behavior for many animals such as whales and dolphins. The object does seem to leap abnormally high into the air however, which is why it may appear to be something out of this world. Perhaps it could be a sea creature that has been thrown into the air by another; an unfortunate victim of a hunter killer roaming the seas. This would explain its unnatural movement, and speed as it soars through the air and crash.

When did the Statue of Liberty turn green?1m00s

When did the Statue of Liberty turn green?

The New-York Historical Society and NYC Media, the official network of the City of New York, have partnered to produce a special series of one minute videos that feature the staff of the New York Historical Society as they answer some of the most captivating questions ever posed to them about the City's fascinating and unique history. When did the Statue of Liberty turn green? No one knows the exact date. The Statue of Liberty was erected in 1886. It was brown because of course it was made of copper and copper turns green only gradually. We know it was green by 1920. But before the age of color photography its hard to be exact about colors. By 1910, it was half brown and half green.

Human skull falls from back of truck on highway41s

Human skull falls from back of truck on highway

Motorists making their way to the cottage on a Saturday morning were shocked to see a very unusual object bounce out of the back of a truck as it merged onto the highway. A round, white ball hit the road and bounced along beside the truck and then down the middle of the highway. As the motorists caught up to the bouncing object, Kristy realized that it was what appeared to be a human skull. Surely, it had to be a plastic skull and not a real human skull, but it was completely unexpected and worthy of an exclamation of surprise. Dave, who was driving, didn't believe what he had seen until Kristy remarked that the truck driver had just lost a skull out of the back. Dave then commented that the driver had lost his head. Kristy and Dave laughed in surprise at the humor and ridiculousness of what had just happened. The dash cam in the vehicle picked up the odd event and zooming in on the footage later confirmed what they had seen. You can make out the jaw and the eyes as it bounces closer. The footage is slowed down in the second part of the video to make it more clear what it is. Normally, seeing a skull bounce out of a truck would be a good reason to call police and have them investigate the matter to make sure that it wasn't actual human remains. In this case though, it seems very obvious that a skull made of bone would not stay in one piece as it bounced on the hard asphalt road. The lower jaw of a human skull is weakly attached in the absence of tendons and muscle. It would have been flapping open and certainly would have broken off on the first bounce. This couple didn't believe for more than a moment that they were seeing something that should be taken seriously and reported. It's more likely that the truck driver had been cleaning out his garage and was making his way to the landfill, or else it was a bargain hunter coming from a yard sale with an unusual purchase for Halloween decorating. Either way, this event provided Dave and Kristy with a good chuckle and some interesting conversation on their long drive to the family cottage.

Drone Captures Destitute And Abandoned Russian Village2m04s

Drone Captures Destitute And Abandoned Russian Village

Thousands of abandoned villages are scattered across northern Russia. Many have become uninhabited due to a lack of infrastructure and jobs. Poor quality roads make some regions unreachable, so people have to save food for weeks ahead, especially in early spring when the frozen rivers begin to melt and before ferries are operational. Although rapid urbanisation and industrial farming depopulate rural areas from China to Canada, the situation in Russia is especially catastrophic. Almost 36,000 villages, or one in four, have 10 residents or fewer. Another 20,000 are abandoned, according to Russia's latest nationwide census conducted in 2010. The construction of this village in the Moscow region was almost complete when it suddenly became abandoned. There were rumors of radiation here, but the real reason could be much worse. This ghost village will make you feel like a time traveller: old and ruined houses, and narrow streets are part of the everyday. They say that villages are the soul of a country and the people, and if that a village dies, then the whole country dies. It is very difficult no to agree with this statement. After all, this village is really the cradle of Russian culture and traditions, the Russian spirit and the Russian poetry. Unfortunately, leaving village life is not something that is uncommon in Russia today. More than often, people abandon villages because modern Russians show an increase in preference of urban way of life, breaking away from their roots. And in the meantime villages become degraded and they only appear on the map of Russia. There are thousands of photos with lonely villages which amaze us with their despondency and longing.

Unidentified Triangular Objects Spotted Flying Over Syria3m30s

Unidentified Triangular Objects Spotted Flying Over Syria

There are a lot of things that we can not explain to ourselves. We are drifting in a space and time that is just not close or developed enough to get to the explanation about exactly how we came to be as species, about us after we cease to exist in this form, about other lives in the universe and on our planet and about the reason why someone would invent such a thing as a fidget spinner. But all joking aside, sometimes we just can’t stop but feel that maybe, just maybe, there is something out there waiting for us to find it. What if all of those unexplained sounds and sightings in nature are just a way of communication, a way of telling us that we shouldn’t give up on our search to find the hidden? That being said, there are a lot of times when people have taken matters into their own hands and tried to create an alternate truth for us to believe in. How many times have you seen supposed footages of UFOs and aliens when in reality you just know that they are all a scam. Someone’s been having a bit too much fun with their Photoshop abilities, and you know it. But unfortunately, they would make you question your sight. This brings us to this footage shot in Tadmur in central Syria. It looks like three triangular objects flying over the evening sky. Do you think this is real or has someone had too much fun pasting the illuminati logo on a the sky? Make sure you tell us what you think in the comments down below.

UFO Lurking Behind Mountain Caught On Video1m43s

UFO Lurking Behind Mountain Caught On Video

There are also a lot of mysterious occurrences in nature. There are a lot of species we haven’t yet encountered and a lot of species that just look plain right bizarre. From avians with gigantic wings, neon color spiders and fireflies, if you look closely, they might look quite normal, but the distance can easily fool the eye. Sometimes it’s just our imagination running wild, but we think that we’ve seen something surreal, when in fact, it was nothing more than a reindeer or a bunny traipsing around our backyard. Our made up beasts have long been the villains in folklore ever since the beginning of time. From cyclops to minotaurs, blood-sucking creatures of the night, goblins and evil fairies, if you search through the various collections of epic stories, you will find everything. Amazingly enough, the fiction we come up with is incredibly impressive. It is captivating and sounds so real that you can easily mistake it for a real life occurrence. It can even make you wonder whether your perception of the world is correct. Serve it whichever way you like. Strangle little men with big heads and even bigger eyes, tall humanoid creatures with big feet and a wooly complexion, purported dinosaurs that dwell deep into remote lakes and always appear like serpents on the surface of the water… It really doesn’t matter. Humankind loves a good mystery story, so much so that if it comes packaged in a trio of equally spaced lights across the noon sky, we will bend over backwards, guessing if it is a UFO or just some rogue Chinese lanterns. Both amateurs and “professional” conspiracy theorists can’t get enough of sightings like these and sometimes, the grainier, the better! This footage isn’t really all that grainy to be honest, but the way the vessel moves in the sky does look a bit fishy. Still, we have to take this footage with a grain of salt and give it a fresh, objective view. At first it doesn’t seem like much; someone filming a hill in the distance in the town of Reutlingen in Germany , over the Achalm mountain. When the camera zooms closer to the treetops, we see a triangular-looking object levitating and kind-of gyrating just above and behind them. The man says “Da!”, meaning “There” in German, just as he spots the vessel appear from behind the tres. There is no sound, other that the wish gushing through the greenery and the sounds of surrounding traffic. After about a minute and a half of footage, the flying object comes out of its hiding spot and is literally gone in a flash. From what we could tell, it looked like a stealth plane. But we would rather not speculate. What are your thoughts on this? What did you think about this video? Make sure you tell us more in the comments down below. If you like what you see, don’t forget to share it with others who might like it as well. It just might be the highlight of their day! Enjoy!

Unidentified Water Creature Spotted Plunging In The Sea In Croatia22s

Unidentified Water Creature Spotted Plunging In The Sea In Croatia

It turns out that the world that surrounds us is not so benign after all. Somewhere out there, in the darkness, in isolated forests and in the unfathomable water depths there live mysterious creatures. They appear out of the blue and just as suddenly they disappear into the thin air. Frightened witnesses are dumbfounded and puzzled. We have always known that the world is full of many mysterious things. There are so many things that we cannot yet explain, some of which we cover in the video at the top of the page. From a dragon filmed flying over England to a creature caught lurking in the depths of a sewer, we take a look at something strange leaping out and plunging back into the Adriatic Sea. If you pay close attention to the world around you, it won’t take long to realize that nature is truly incredible. While there is so much we already know about the hundreds of species that populate this earth, there’s also a lot we do not know. And even our research and observations can take us by surprise when we witness phenomena in nature. This is one mysterious video taken in Croatia. Do deep sea creatures interest you? They should. Although these days everyone is obsessed with dogs and cats, some of the strangest and most unique creatures in the universe lie beneath the surface of the waves on our very own planet. An apparent unknown water creature was recently spotted off the coast of Croatia in South-Eastern Europe. This couple wanted to capture the beautiful view of the Adriatic Sea when they realize they have an intruder in the video. In the video, there is an unknown figure that jumps in the air and then back in the water again. At first watching, you might be inclined to wave off the entire thing believing it is a seagull, but on a closer look, you definitely see the mysterious creature soaring in the air is just too big for that nagging bird. In addition to its substantial proportions, it features some bodily characteristics that may lead one to think this could be a ray. In the video, you can clearly see the outlines of what we can call "wings". However, compare the height of its jump from the water to the highest spot it reached in the air. It is absolutely not possible! Moreover, why would a ray jump that high? Is it praying on seagulls? One thing is for certain: the man climbing the rocks is lucky not to have been turned facing towards the sea when this happened. Looking blissfuly at the camera definitely saved him the shock. What do you think it could possibly be? The work of video editing, or something real? Could it be the Croatian Loch Ness monster ? The most famous mystery about Loch Ness surrounds the phenomenon of an enormous creature that is believed to live in the water – known universally as the Loch Ness Monster, or "Nessie" as she’s affectionately known. We believe that we have a case to solve here!

It sounds like a good start to a death metal song with aliens as lead vocals named “hell is opening up”. Would you think this is the sound of a sasquatch-like creature because back in October, a group of researchers claimed they were "95 percent" certain that a Yeti was living in Siberia. However the Yeti evidence was later debunked when one of the scientists who partook in the study told The Huffington Post that the Yeti scenario was likely staged.

Do you have any theories on what it could possibly be? There have been numerous reports of the eerie sound all over the world, but they usually occur by natural causes where this soundtrack is clearly coming from a tape.

But what about sounds that emerge in the middle of the day? Poltergeists, witches and ghosts aren't the only source for spooky seasonal mystery. In fact, scientists monitoring mysterious sounds have uncovered a handful of sounds that can't be explained at least not with any certainty. Train sounds like you might expect a noise named train to sound like the rub of train wheels against tracks. Recorded in 1997, Train is a steady hum that likely originated in Antarctica's Ross Sea. The suspected culprit? An iceberg dragging its keel along the ocean floor, but is it? A mysterious noise coming from the rails is continuing to baffle people at this train station as well as giving those who hear them sleepless nights and uneasy feeling. Sounding like a trumpet or a collective from a brass section of an orchestra, this sound is giving us the creeps.

Secret Waterfall Is The Hidden Gem Shining In The Heart Of New York City3m01s

Secret Waterfall Is The Hidden Gem Shining In The Heart Of New York City

There are plenty of hidden attractions and secret places throughout the massive city that might surprise even some locals. Take for example this 25-foot waterfall flowing in the middle of Manhattan. Did you know there's a waterfall right in Midtown, Manhattan? Many haven’t come across this hidden sanctuary! The funny thing about this hidden gem is that many locals don’t even know about it. How is it possible that a waterfall gets unaccounted for in one of the world’s most visited cities? It is also located in the most densely populated area as well. Incredible! New Yorkers have to elbow their way on teeming sidewalks and streets just to get anywhere. Amazingly, in a city where no space can be taken for granted, a secret waterfall park has emerged on the surface. A new campaign was launched to rezone the heart of Manhattan and protect the afternoon light falling on a beloved park that offers honey locust trees, azaleas, pansies and a 25-foot-high waterfall. It is a lush oasis in a neighborhood starved for green space! A great initiative! The park is located on East 51st Street between Second and Third Avenues and is considered to be the precious hidden gem of NYC. Gail O. Caulkins, the president of the Greenacre Foundation and the granddaughter of the philanthropist Abby Rockefeller Mauze says that the city rezoning would allow taller buildings that could block its afternoon sun, endangering the plant life and making the spot colder, darker and far less inviting. This patch of greenery, which is known as Greenacre Park, a 1971 gift from a granddaughter of the industrialist John D. Rockefeller Sr., Abby Rockefeller, is at the center of a brewing battle between light and darkness as the city grows ever more vertical. Greenarce Park is a privately-owned publicly-accessible vest-pocket park located on East 51st Street between Second and Third Avenues in the Midtown neighborhood of Manhattan, New York City. The park, which is owned by Greenacre Foundation, was a 1971 gift from the philanthropist Abby Rockefeller Mauzé, the daughter of John D. Rockefeller Jr. and the granddaughter of John D Rockefeller. The 6,360-square-foot (591 m2) park was assembled from three lots, which had previously been occupied by a store, a garage, and part of a synagogue. It features a 25-foot (7.6 m) waterfall, a trellis with heat lamps for chilly days, chairs and table, as well as honey locust trees, azaleas, and pansies, which together attract an average of 700 visitors a day.
