Once again … Strange sounds … this time from a lake … or could these mysterious sounds, like may others we have reported on over the years, actually be coming from UNDER the lake thus actually making them underground sounds? . . . EDITOR
YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK — Yellowstone Lake and the rugged backcountry that surrounds it is a place where millions go seeking solitude and silence. Yet it in a well-documented but rarely discussed phenomenon, some visitors to the Lake area have experienced remarkable celestial sounds of unknown and unexplained origin.
“They resemble the ringing of telegraph wires or the humming of a swarm of bees, beginning softly in the distance, growing rapidly plainer until directly overhead, and then fading as rapidly in the opposite direction,” wrote Hiram M. Chittenden in 1895 in his book, “The Yellowstone National Park.”
Chittenden’s description is one of several in the historical record — as well as many more from popular anecdotal accounts — of strange sounds or “lake music” coming from the skies around Yellowstone Lake and Shoshone lake.
Chittenden was an accomplished engineer with rigorous scientific discipline who built roads and bridges in the park, as well as locks in Seattle’s Lake Washington Ship Canal. He was not given to idle speculation or unsubstantiated gossip about seemingly magical events.
But he is hardly the only — or even the first — prominent Yellowstone visitor to write about the strange and unexplained lake sounds. . . . Read Complete Report
Congress held discussions to sell the National Parks during the government shutdown through the Disposal of Excess Federal Lands Act, spearheaded by Jason Chaffetz (R-UT).
The sale would cover national parks in Arizona, Colorado, Idaho, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Utah, & Wyoming as a measure to “reduce the federal deficit.” We discuss the proposal on this Buzzsaw news clip with Tyrel Ventura and Tabetha Wallace.
Activity at Yellowstone’s supervolcano is ramping-up, causing some in-the-know to prepare for what could soon make two-thirds of the United States uninhabitable.

YELLOWSTONE, WYOMING (INTELLIHUB) — Recently the massive 300 mile wide underground supervolcano and pool of liquid hot magma at Yellowstone National Park has become alarmingly active. So far, mainline scientists and press have kept the cause of the activity tight-lipped, but one thing is for sure, something is definitely going on underground in the region. In fact it has been documented that the ground in and around Yellowstone has risen over 3 inches per year lately, which is scary data to receive for modern researchers. . . . Read Complete Report
Scientists search for the explosive source of a disaster that wiped out almost a third of Londoners in 1258.
When archaeologists discovered thousands of medieval skeletons in a mass burial pit in east London in the 1990s, they assumed they were 14th-century victims of the Black Death or the Great Famine of 1315-17. Now they have been astonished by a more explosive explanation – a cataclysmic volcano that had erupted a century earlier, thousands of miles away in the tropics, and wrought havoc on medieval Britons.
Scientific evidence – including radiocarbon dating of the bones and geological data from across the globe – shows for the first time that mass fatalities in the 13th century were caused by one of the largest volcanic eruptions of the past 10,000 years.. . . Read Complete Report
DIG DEEPER: Supervolcano.the Truth About Yellowstone.
Meet the experts who monitor the behaviour of the Yellowstone supervolcano. They face the awesome responsibility of predicting when the next super-eruption might next take place — and advising on what will happen when it does.
On August 6th, 1848, the Royal Navy frigate HMS Daedalus was cruising near the Cape of Good Hope when the Officer of Watch spotted an object in the sea. He drew the attention of the Captain and several crew members on deck to it. It was a large sea snake, or sea serpent, that they estimated to be sixty feet long, 15 inches in diameter, and moved through the sea with it’s head some four feet out of the water.
Strangely enough it seemed to be able to move quickly through the water with neither vertical or horizontal undulation. The creature was dark brown, shading to yellow-white under the throat. On the back there seemed to be a seaweed-like mane. The Daedalus observed it for about twenty minutes.
In 1937 Alfred Peterson, a nurse aboard a British troopship in the China Sea, spotted what at first he thought was a big tree floating in the sea. A few minutes later he noticed it was still there, keeping pace with the ship. This peaked his interest and he took a closer look. What he saw was a 25 foot long, grey-black, body with a head shaped like a giraffe.
Tales about sea serpents have been told and retold by sailors down through the ages. Skeptics have pointed out that many of these incidents could be the result of misidentifications. A floating log, or in the case of the Daedalus, an abandoned native canoe painted like a snake. Some encounters are so close, though, that it is hard to believe someone could be mistaken: . . .

The only surviving footage of the Sunset Squid sequence (shot by a documentary filmmaker) was in regular screen format. I wondered how it would have looked in widescreen (Leagues was shot in CinemaScope) – so I reformatted it into Letterbox. I think this is pretty close to how the sequence appeared originally, since the documentary cameraman was allowed to place his 16mm Bolex right alongside the ‘A’ Camera during his time on the set.
There’s been a lot of buzz over the last few weeks about strange sounds being heard in the atmosphere. People around the world and here at home have reported hearing some bizarre noises. The latest were recorded in the Battlefords last weekend.
Ian Hamilton, North Battleford’s mayor, says he can’t explain it. “What I experienced was a scraping sound, like a snowplow. . . Read Complete Report
