Pup nodded off for two hours on top of Cruise ship worker Lea McQuillan; The pup, on the South Shetland Islands, weighs as much as an adult man

When you live in a place that’s surrounded by nothing but unforgiving rock and gritty sand, it’s tempting to use anything soft as a pillow – including a passing sightseer.

Cruise ship worker Lea McQuillan had only just sat down for a brief rest during a visit to the Antarctic’s barren South Shetland islands when an elephant seal pup waddled over and snuggled up.

The pup, which weighs as much as an adult man, then nodded off, sleeping for two hours before crawling into the water.

Denver the Guilty Dog strikes again!Denver continues her quest for the Christmas tree foam balls.

Posted in 2014, animals with tags , , , , on December 18, 2014 by theboldcorsicanflame

He is known as Denver the Guilty Dog for his ability to grin while being scolded by his owner.

And it seems the cheeky golden labrador has struck again, this time devouring baubles from the Christmas tree.

The pooch – famous for grinning at his owner when he was caught eating cat treats – once again smiles as his owner questions whether he is the culprit after discovering the broken decorations on the floor.

Denver – whose grinning video amassed 39 million hits of YouTube – can be seen relaxing on the sofa with lips stained red form the Christmas baubles.

But he seems unperturbed as his owner tells him off, grinning up at the camera and wagging his tail.

As his owner approaches, he says: ‘Denver, what the….?’

 

General Ricardo Bermúdez presenting evidence from an official UFO investigation

Posted in 2014, Galaxy with tags , , , , on December 17, 2014 by theboldcorsicanflame

This is an excerpt from Gen. Ricardo Bermúdez’s presentation at the 2012 International UFO Congress, detailing the “Pelican Case,” a UFO encounter that involved two airliners and a navy plane called Pelican.

Ricardo Bermúdez is the director of CEFAA (Committee of Studies of Anomalous Aerial Phenomena), which is part of DGAC, Chile’s Civil Aviation Agency, the equivalent to the U.S. FAA.

The Aeronautical and Astronautical Association of France (3AF) has signed an agreement with Chile’s Committee for the Studies of Anomalous Aerial Phenomena (CEFAA) to cooperate on the study of UFOs. 3AF posted an article on their website late last month explaining their newly founded relationship with CEFAA.

3AF is an important organization in France, and in Europe’s aeronautical industry in general. Similar to the United State’s American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, it is a society for those participating in, or interested in, the aerospace industry.

Surprisingly, 3AF also has a strong interest in the investigation of UFOs. Although, it might not be too surprising to those who know that the French government is one of very few that have an official organization that investigates UFOs. It is called the Study and Information Group on Aerospace Unidentified Phenomena (GEIPAN), and is part of France’s National Center for Space Studies (CNES), their version of NASA

Norwegian Gives Drowned Duck Mouth To Mouth

 

A duck trapped under the ice of a part-frozen lake had a lucky escape after it was spotted by a local man who was planning on taking a dip in the chilly water.

Lars Jorun Langoien, 36, spotted the bird stuck bottom-up in Lake Sognsvann near the Norwegian capital Oslo and quickly realized that it was in trouble.

So he was already wearing his swimming trunks, Lars undressed and dived into the lake where he broke the ice and grabbed the lifeless duck.

Lars, who is a regular swimmer in the the icy water, said: ‘I assumed it was looking for food and knew the way out, and my pal grabbed a photo of it.

‘But then we realized that it was trapped and had forgotten where the hole was that it had come through, and was drowning.

A spectacular meteor shower lit up the skies last night with 100 shooting stars an hour as the celestial firework display reached its fiery peak.

Sky-watchers across the world braved freezing temperatures to enjoy the Geminid meteor shower after astronomers said the weather conditions were close to perfect for the annual spectacle.

Shooting stars were seen streaking across the night sky just after midnight in London and past the Dover Patrol Memorial in St Margarets Bay, Kent.

The meteor shower was visible in both hemispheres and was spotted from Skopje in Macedonia to Washington in the US because of the clear skies. 

At their height, the Geminids produce between 50 and 100 shooting stars every hour and they can be seen glowing in multiple colours with occasional rapid bursts of two or three.

Grand Canyon fills up with sea of clouds during rare weather phenomenon

Posted in 2014 with tags , on December 13, 2014 by theboldcorsicanflame

A rare weather phenomenon known as a “total cloud inversion” had visitors at the Grand Canyon looking out on a sea of thick clouds

A rare weather phenomenon at the Grand Canyon in the US had visitors looking out on a sea of thick clouds just below the rim on Thursday.

The total cloud inversion is expected to hang inside the canyon throughout Thursday. The National Weather Service says the weather event happens about once every several years, though the landmark was treated to one last year.

The fog that has been shrouding parts of northern Arizona is courtesy of recent rains. The Weather Service says the fog is able to stick around and built up in the Grand Canyon overnight when there is no wind.

With an inversion, the clouds are forced down by warm air and unable to rise. The Grand Canyon is expected to gradually clear up in the coming days.
