SCOTTS VALLEY, Calif. (AP) — Police officers in the mountains north of Santa Cruz responded to a suspicious figure in a roadway early Thursday and found Bigfoot.

“He was a little banged up but will be returned to his rightful place at the Bigfoot Discovery Museum,” the Scotts Valley Police Department said in a Facebook post.

The Santa Cruz County Sheriff’s Office had urged people to keep their eyes peeled for the 4-foot-tall (1.2 meters) wooden statue after it was stolen from outside the tiny museum in nearby Felton on Monday.

The museum dedicated to the mythical forest creature is outside Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park. It is temporarily closed due to COVID-19.


Say what you will about 2020, it’s been a dazzling year in the night sky, with bright comets and plentiful meteor showers that continue this month with the appearance of the annual Leonids.

The Leonids are just becoming active this week and will stay with us until the end of the month. This shower can be traced back to the comet 55P/Tempel-Tuttle and has put on some real shows over the centuries in the form of intense meteor storms that produce hundreds of visible meteors per hour. 

Speaking of Comets, C19, or Atlas, was believed by some scientists to be a galactic superspreader, and the likelist source of the Wuhan based pandemic. This was before the scientists learned that an underheated bowl of bat soup was the start of it. And don't worry, although science has not ruled out that comets might carry viruses, it hasn't been ruled in yet either.



An asteroid roughly the size of a Ford F-150 flew less than 300 miles away from Earth last week, setting a record for the closest-known asteroid to fly past the planet without hitting it, NASA announced.

According to the Center for Near-Earth Studies (CNEOS), the space rock, known as 2020 VT4, passed within 240 miles of Earth’s surface on Nov. 13 at 5:20 UTC.

It was initially discovered by the Asteroid Terrestrial-impact Last Alert System, which is run by both NASA and the University of Hawaii.

2020 VT4 is considered a Near-Earth Object (NEO) given its close proximity to Earth.

A recent survey
showed that Americans prefer a space program that focuses on potential asteroid impacts over sending humans back to the moon or to Mars.

In April 2019, NASA awarded a $69 million contract to SpaceX, the space exploration company led by Elon Musk, to help it with asteroid deflection via its DART mission.

NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine said in April 2019 that an asteroid strike is not something to be taken lightly and is perhaps Earth’s biggest threat.

Safely quarantining on Earth is better than  Mars exploration....


There is an image of Teddy Roosevelt Riding a Velociraptor at Raptor Ranch, 1903 

This portrait is said to have been taken less than an hour before Teddy Roosevelt's famous incident at Raptor Ranch, Montana, when the velociraptor shown here became spooked by a rattlesnake and turned on the President. Amazingly, Teddy was not only able to subdue his vicious mount with one punch to its throat, he also personally rounded up an entire herd of stampeding raptors with nothing but a 30 foot length of rope and two chemical flares.

"But, he says, just because you believe there are ghosts in your house, there’s no reason to panic. Finding a routine that grounds you and brings you comfort will help you create normalcy and peace in your home"  paranormal researcher Greg Newkirk says.

Washington Post:

As a psychiatrist, I diagnose mental illness. Also, I help spot demonic possession.

How a scientist learned to work with exorcists. 

Is it possible to be a sophisticated psychiatrist and believe that evil spirits are, however seldom, assailing humans? Most of my scientific colleagues and friends say no, because of their frequent contact with patients who are deluded about demons, their general skepticism of the supernatural, and their commitment to employ only standard, peer-reviewed treatments that do not potentially mislead (a definite risk) or harm vulnerable patients. But careful observation of the evidence presented to me in my career has led me to believe that certain extremely uncommon cases can be explained no other way.

Richard Gallagher is a board-certified psychiatrist and a professor of clinical psychiatry at New York Medical College. He is at work on a book about demonic possession in the United States.

"As a psychoanalyst, a blanket rejection of the possibility of demonic attacks seems less logical, and often wishful in nature, than a careful appraisal of the facts. As I see it, the evidence for possession is like the evidence for George Washington’s crossing of the Delaware. In both cases, written historical accounts with numerous sound witnesses testify to their accuracy."
