Massive Fireball Explodes Over Chelyabinsk Russia

A massive object, thought to be a 55 foot wide and 10,000 ton asteroid, exploded with the force of 500 kilotons of TNT over the central Russian city of Chelyabinsk on February 15th 2013. The explosion was about 30 times the power of the atomic bomb detonated over Hiroshima in 1945.

Thousands have been reported injured as the explosion blew out windows, knocked down building and spread destruction across Chelyabinsk and the surrounding area.

A twenty foot hole was found about 60 miles from Chelyabinsk where it is believed a chunk of the object landed.

NASA is claiming that 2012 DA14 was “a completely unrelated object,” based on data from the trajectory of the object, as it passed with in 17,200 miles of the Earth the same day.

Another object was seen 8 p.m. Friday night throughout the Bay Area in California. An astronomer with the Chabot Space and Science Center in Oakland, said that it appears that the three objects seen Friday are unrelated.

Could the Russian have shot down the object over Chelyabinsk trying to prevent further destruction from the object hitting the ground?

The theory appears to have originated from the Znak newspaper, which quoted an anonymous “military source” who claimed that the object was intercepted by an air defense unit from Urzhumka near Chelyabinsk.

UFOs And Russian Bigfoot Bones

It might be from, but I first saw this story on Bigfoot Lunch Club.

The story goes that on July 13 several students on an expedition to find evidence of Bigfoot saw a UFO while digging for what they believe were Bigfoot bones in the Kuzbass region of Kemerovo Province in Russia.

And there is video!

So is there a correspond between Bigfoot and UFOs?

One of my favorite Bigfoot resources, the Bigfoot Casebook (I highly recommend), has an entire chapter documenting UFOs sightings that correspond to Bigfoot encounters. While most ‘nuts and bolts’ Bigfoot hunters want to lean away from any paranormal association with Bigfoot, we acknowledge ‘the weird’ that too often accompanies Bigfoot sightings, with out getting all ‘airy fairy’ about any relationship between Bigfoot and the supernatural. We classify all the unknown and weird into the ‘paranormal Fortean phenomenon and ultraterrestrial activities’ category.

Buy us a drink some time and we’ll try to explain.

New Voice Transmissions On UVB-76

Something odd is up with the UVB-76 Buzzer, a mysterious 10 kW short wave radio transmitter that has been transmitting a buzzing sound at 4625 kHz since 1982 from outside Povarovo Russia.

Multiple voice transmissions and odd activity has been reported in the past several days.

The mysterious signal is speculated to be either some sort of military signal or possibly a High-frequency Doppler method for ionosphere research that would be looking for changes of an ionosphere state can be caused by solar geophysical or seismic events.

Occasionally, the internet gets all excited about the UVB-76 Buzzer when the rumor goes out that it has stopped broadcasting, as happened in June of this year, but a voice signal from the transmitter is something special, with only 4 or 5 reports of this happening since it was first detected in 1982.

The recorded vocal transmission isn’t the only odd thing to have been reported in August of 2010. lists quite the activity this month.

* On August 20, 2010 at 05:11 UTC, a garbled voice speaking Russian, was detected by amateur listeners. It made a short message with little interference and then repeated itself with noticeably more static. This followed recent activity on the station that included more static than usual and several instances of objects being moved/dropped. All of this was detected by amateur listeners and is unconfirmed at the moment.

* On August 23, 2010 at 13:35 UTC, a voice speaking in Russian was detected. The voice read out a single, short transmission several times before the line went dead, then returned to its normal broadcast. As the message was transmitted on upper side-band, reception with ordinary AM receivers was weak and distorted.
o The message, repeated twice, was: UVB-76, UVB-76 — 93 882 naimina 74 14 35 74 — 9 3 8 8 2 nikolai, anna, ivan, michail, ivan, nikolai, anna, 7, 4, 1, 4, 3, 5, 7, 4[11]

* On August 24, 2010 at approximately 04:00 UTC, a heavily distorted voice was heard by amateur listeners.

* On August 24, 2010 at 13:25 UTC, another heavily distorted voice was detected by several amateur listeners.

* On August 24, 2010 at 17:43 UTC, Hard to hear voices were heard over the transmission.

* On August 24, 2010 at around 03:30 UTC, distorted voices in addition to fast beeps and pulses were heard.

* On August 25, 2010 around 06:13 UTC, Random knocks or shuffles as if someone is in the room, changes in tone randomly.

* On August 25, 2010 at 06:45 UTC, A grumble or garbled sound appeared out of nowhere for 389 ms.

* On August 25, 2010 at 06:54 UTC, Another transmission occurred. (Recording of the fifth voice transmission) A new sequence/pattern with a chirping/crank noise occured on top of the previous buzzer. At times this new noise made the old buzzing noise barely audible. The message content was: “UVB-76. UVB-76. 38, 527. Akkreciya. 36, 09, 55, 73.”.

* On August 25, 2010 at 18:07 UTC, Morse code could be heard behind the buzzer signal. It lasted until approximately 18:20 UTC. At approximately 18:08 UTC A tone was heard in the background followed by a short message.

So what is up that would spark this amazing spike of activity from the UVB-76 buzzer?

Is The UVB-76 Buzzer Still On?

Outside Povarovo, Russia, which is about 25 miles northwest of Moscow, near the village of Lozhki is a 10 kW short wave radio transmitter that has been transmitting a buzzing sound at 4625 kHz that lasts 0.8 seconds, pausing for 1–1.3 seconds, and repeating 21–34 times per minute continuous since 1982 with very few interruptions. The reason for the transmission is unknown, but has been speculated to be either some sort of military signal or possibly a High-frequency Doppler method for ionosphere research that would be looking for changes of an ionosphere state can be caused by solar geophysical or seismic events.

Since 1982, the signal has been interrupted only several times, sometimes changing tone for a short amount of time and at least three times, voices have been heard at that frequency. Once a Russian voice saying “Я — 143. Не получаю генератор.” “Идёт такая работа от аппаратной.” (“[This is] 143. Not receiving the generator (oscillator).” “There’s some work on the hardware.”)

Interestingly, the location on google maps is partially blocked out by a ‘cloud’. Part of one of the buildings can be seen but with no real detail.

At some point in the last several days (around June 5th), it started to pop up on message boards that the signal had stopped, after almost 28 years, the end of the Cold War, and the break up of the Soviet Empire.

After all these year what would cause the still unexplained transmission to stop?

Or did it stop?

Posts on claim the transmission is still going. Another claiming Morse code and voices could be heard on that frenquency.

From that same message board, direction on how to listen to the UVB-76 Buzzer

1. go to The Listening Post – Receiver Controls

[link to]

2. type ‘4625’ into the frequency field

3. click enter link

4. click ‘to shortwave radio’ link

5. click on ‘live audio (10 secs) link.

I tried… and all I heard was a buzz. Not sure if that is it or not or even to trust that link and set of directions.
Does anyone have a shortwave radio on hand? Could you check 4625 kHz?

And if it is off, what does that mean?

If it is a signal related to studying the ionosphere for solar geophysical or seismic events, could the fact it is off or was turned off be a sign of something to come?

Kirsan Ilyumzhinov, Governor of Russian Republic Kalmykia, Was Abducted By Aliens

Kirsan Ilyumzhinov, the governor of Kalmykia, told a Russian TV program he was abducted by aliens who visited him in his apartment on September 18, 1997. Ilyumzhinov is also the former president of the World Chess Federation.

The aliens contacted the Governor telepathically.

Ilyumzhinov claims that the aliens did not make themselves known to the rest of the world because they were not ready, adding that he communicated with them telepathically because there was not enough oxygen on earth to support them.

The report adds that his driver, his minister and his assistant were all present when the aliens made contact and rumor is that Russian president Dmitry Medvedev wants to speak directly to Ilyumzhinov. Medvedev is concerned that Russian security secrets may have been given to the aliens.

Both ABC and FoxNews have picked up on this story, giving different photo of Ilyumzhinov.

Russian Hunter Saves Bigfoot

Did A Russian Hunter Save A Bigfoot?

Russian news agency Itar-Tass is reporting that professional hunter Afanasiy Kiskorov dove into a frozen Siberia river to save a trapped bigfoot.

Kiskorov and a group of other hunters were about 85 miles from the nearest town of Senzaskiye Kichi, when they heard breaking ice and howling. When they investigated, they found a “huge man covered in dark brown fur” trapped in the frozen water, unable to get out.

Kiskorov used a tree branch to help the creature free. The creature then promptly left the area.
