A cache of unusual UFO images reportedly taken in March 1971 have UFO researchers and conspiracy theorists in a frenzy. The images were taken near the Arctic, likely from the USS Trepang submarine as it travelled between Iceland and Norway’s Jan Mayen Island, and released anonymous by an ex-military man believed to have been aboard the submarine when the pictures were taken. The pictures were send with a brief background stating the pictures were taken when the submarine came upon the objects by “accident” as they were in the region on a routine joint military and scientific expedition.
New “lost” Van Gogh painting found after spending decades inside the attic of Norwegian collector’s home
A lost Van Gogh painting has been found after spending decades inside the attic of a Norwegian collector, who was told in the early 1900’s that it was a fake. The Vincent Van Gogh painting is the first full-size canvas discovered since 1928. “Sunset at Montmajour” depicts a “dry landscape of oak trees, bushes, and sky, painted with Van Gogh’s familiar thick brush strokes”. Investigators were able to identify the exact day it was painted because Van Gogh described it in a letter to his brother, Theo.
The Hessdalen Lights are an earth anomaly (or UFO phenomena, they’re tough to classify without knowing exactly what they are) commonly seen in the Hessdalen valley in the central part of Norway. The mysterious lights, typically large, bright white, blue, red, or yellow lights floating above the ground or shooting at amazing speeds through the air, have been witnessed since 1811 or earlier. Interest in the lights picked up in 1981 when residents in the area began to see unknown lights in the valley and in the nearby districts. The lights sometimes remain still and sometimes flash, and can suddenly move at extreme speeds up into the atmosphere or down into the ground, or into one of the many lakes in the area.
We’re not quite ready to call it perpetual motion yet but it is indeed an interesting machine. Norwegian artist and mathematician Reidar Finsrud is an outside the box thinker that has devised a machine, called the Finsrud Wheel, that he believes achieves true perpetual motion albeit, even he cannot explain how. The machine reportedly uses a combination of gravity, magnets, pendulums, and a little push to get it started in order to generate continuous motion.
In 2009, a light was spotted in the skies above Norway that made other glowing-light UFO sightings pale by comparison. Called the “Norwegian spiral anomaly” or “Star Gate”, the UFO was visible to thousands of awe-struck Norwegians and photographed extensively, from Norway to Sweden. The event occurred on December 9, 2009 and lasted from 2-3 minutes (some sources say it lasted up to 10 minutes). It consisted of a blue beam of light that came from behind a mountain with a grayish spiral-shaped hue of light emanating from it.
