What does the Paracorder 667 do?
Ghost Detector and Communicator using ION and Electrostatic metering to identify and communicate with ghosts, plus emits a natural EMF Vortex pattern known to attract and energize ghosts. Unlike any other EMF Pumps on the market, this unit uses Tesla coil technology emitting a natural EMF pulsation at a gentle Schumann resonance frequency (Earth's heartbeat) with the added bonus of detecting ghosts!

Paracorder 667 is Great for EVP's
EVP, or electronic voice phenomenon, are some of the best evidence for the existence of paranormal activity. By definition, an EVP is a disembodied voice which is not physically heard at the time of recording, but later heard upon playback. They are typically graded via an A, B, C rating system, with A being the clearest and most likely of being paranormal. At times, a disembodied voice may be physically heard and also picked up by the recording device. These, along with other unexplained sounds, we refer to as audio anomalies.

Paranormalistics HQ is located in Carlsbad Ca North San Diego County. We primarily service California and Nevada, but  will travel as far as it takes.  We now have a  Paranormalistics Las Vegas Nv Chapter and Paranormalistics Boulder City Nv Chapter to better service those regions. Contact us to schedule an investigation for your residence, property, business or if you want to report, study or to obtain help with paranormal activity. All consultations are confidential.

'Montauk Monster' washes ashore in New York

Cryptozoology News (Montauk Monster)
The creature was spotted under the Brooklyn Bridge by Denise Ginley, who sent photos of it to New York-based news website Gothamist on July 22.
Ms Ginley said the animal was about 60cm long from head to tail and asked: "Is this another incarnation of the Montauk Monster, or just the biggest rat in the city?" Photos of the carcass, which Ms Ginley dubbed the "East River Monster", quickly spread throughout US media, with people suggesting it was a washed up rat until the New York City Parks Department claimed it was a pig. But this was quickly disputed, with people pointing out the photos showed the creature had claws and not trotters like a pig. Ms Ginley told ninemsn she was walking to a farmers' market with her boyfriend when she first spotted the carcass and she returned later that day with her camera to photograph it.

 "Several other people were looking and taking photos, and everyone had a different opinion about what it was (suggestions included giant rat, dog, pig, monster, and seal)," Ms Ginley said.

 "Obviously I thought it was gross, but it was just so strange looking I wanted to get closer ... strangely enough, it did not smell, maybe because it had been in the water so long."

The carcass has still not been identified, and Gawker jokingly reported that the New York City Parks Department was "still being cagey" about the animal.
Another unidentifiable animal, the Montauk Monster made headlines in July 2008 when it washed up on a beach in Montauk, northeast of New York.
At the time people suggested the creature was a raccoon, a small dog, a rat and even a bloated turtle without its shell.

Haunted Oceanside CA

The Haunted Hunter Steakhouse in Oceanside CA
This is one of Oceansides most haunted locations. Prior to the restaurant being built, the land was once Oceanside's Buena Vista Cemetery. The first known burial was in 1885 and the last known was in 1906. It's not known why burials stopped at Buena Vista; some people disinterred and moved their loved ones' bodies to the nearby Oceanside Cemetery.
The land the cemetery was on was purchased by a schoolteacher in the 1950s. She wanted to preserve the view of Buena Vista Lagoon from her home located on Stewart Street. The land was later purchased by a developer who wanted to use the site for commercial properties. In January 1970, 17 bodies were disinterred and removed to El Camino Memorial Park in Sorrento Valley while others went to other resting places.
During the grading of the site for use, and during the creation of the ramp for the I-5 freeway, construction workers found human remains and coffins. These discoveries were swept under the rug by developers so the workers took it upon themselves to rebury any remains they found on the site.
Ghosts of the Hunter Steakhouse
The Hunter Steakhouse sits on a hill above the Buena Vista Lagoon. Patrons and employees have constantly reported incidents. The stairwell to the bar area appears to be the home of a female spirit. There is a storage room above the lower dining area and entrance. The room is constantly locked and hardly used. But for some reason the spirits prefer this location when the restaurant gets busy. There are three windows up there, and although they can`t be opened, people feel drawn to gaze at these windows. Also from the second floor an apparition has been reported moving across the room from the fireplace in midair. Several people have heard there names called by both male and female voices. Like many other locations of hauntings, objects moving and power surges have been reported as well. The submitter of this haunted places reports seeing a face of a male form out of the chimney, ever so briefly, but it felt welcoming. 

Paranormal Activity has also been reported at the nearby Amazon Bike Shop. The building was formerly a gas station and strange incidents were reported during that time as well.
A small reminder of the Buena Vista Cemetery remains in the form of a plaque near the entrance of the restaurant, donated by the Oceanside Historical Society. Part of it reads, "Dedicated to the memories of those who were buried at Buena Vista Cemetery. While some bodies were moved before and during construction on this site many remain here or nearby." The names of the people found on gravestones are listed on the plaque.

Scientists Create Artificial Jellyfish

Now Frankenstein can have a pet cyborg jellyfish. A team of scientists has taken the heart cells of a rat, arranged them on a piece of rubbery silicon, added a jolt of electricity, and created a “Franken-jelly.” Just like a real jellyfish, the artificial jelly swims around by pumping water in and out of its bell-shaped body. Researchers hope the advance can someday help engineers design better artificial hearts and other muscular organs.
Young moon jellyfish (Aurelia aurita), which are usually between 10 and 12 cm wide, swim rhythmically. First, they flex their muscles quickly and all at once, expelling water as they take on a dome shape. Then, slowly, their body relaxes and flattens, triggering another round of muscle contractions. Researchers knew which cells helped jellyfish move, and how they work together to push and pull water. What they wanted to find out was how best to recreate this behavior using materials available in the lab.

Bioengineers John Dabiri from the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena, California, and Kevin Kit Parker from the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering at Harvard University adopted a motto: Copy nature, but not too much. “Some engineers build things out of concrete, copper and steel—we build things out of cells,” says Parker.
The duo and their colleagues stenciled out the ideal jellyfish shape on silicon, a material that would be sturdy but flexible, much like the jellyfish itself. They then coached rat muscle cells to grow in parallel bands on the silicon and encased the cells with a stretchy material called elastomer. To get their artificial jellyfish, or medusoid, swimming, the researchers submerged it in a salty solution and ran an electric current through the water, jump-starting the rat cells. The mimic propelled itself rapidly in the water, swimming as effectively as a real jellyfish, the researchers report online today in Nature Biotechnology.
The team went through a lot of trial and error to get everything right, Parker notes. The silicon layer used to mimic the jellyfish’s body had to be strong but not so strong that the muscle cells could not stiffen it, and the fingerlike lobes of the body had to be adjusted to make sure water could flow in between them. In healthy hearts, valves open wide and close tightly. When they malfunction, there can be serious health repercussions. By studying how jellyfish manipulate liquids with their body, Parker says, scientists may be able to come up with more accurate ways to fix or even replace damaged heart valves.
Joseph Ayers, a neurophysiologist at Northeastern University in Boston who was not involved with the study, is impressed, particularly because the researchers were able to use the energy produced by muscle cells and not batteries to power the medusoids, making them practically independent. “This is very much a landmark paper,” he says. “I think in the long run, its greatest impact is going to be in implantable medical devices.”

Haunted Locations in Old Town San Diego

The Haunted Cosmopolitan Hotel is one of Old Town San Diego's most haunted locations. This is part 3 of our series on Hauntings & Ghosts of Haunted Old Town San Diego.

Ghosts of the Haunted Cosmopolitan Hotel 
Isadora Bandini room.  Once the building was converted to a hotel, Bandini’s daughter used to go there to remember her childhood days.  She used to stay in the same room at every visit. A lot of people believe her spirit is still in the room.  The ghost likes to open the curtains, move the position of the mirror and put the bathroom robe on the floor (this is what guest and hotel staff has experienced). Guest can also hear a cat purring at night.  Paranormal investigators have examined the room. When they started to get readings and ask questions, they weren’t getting anything.  Then, they realized that Isadora spoke Spanish when she was alive.  They started to ask questions in Spanish and, at that moment, she told them her name. They also caught the cat and some Indians who lived in the area way before the adobe house was constructed.


History of the Haunted Cosmopolitan Hotel
The history of this building goes back to 175 years. It all started with a pioneer named Juan Lorenzo Bandini.  He settled the area in the 1800s.  Between 1827 to 1829, he built a magnificent and extended residence with the idea of proving maximum comfort to his wife and two daughters.  The result ended up being the largest residence in San Diego at that time.  The house was built in a Spanish Colonial style.  It included abode walls, muslin ceilings and brick lane patio.

When Bandini died, a man named Albert Seeley acquired the property.  His dream was to build a place where travelers could rest, eat and get some entertainment.  In order to do that, Seeley added a second level to the originally adobe structure.  He was able to create a hotel with 20 rooms.  The new edification was built in a Greek Revival style.  Seeley was able to keep the hotel full because he was also in the transportation business. He used to run coaches between Los Angeles and San Diego three times a week.

Haunted Old Town San Diego CA

The Haunted Old Town Cemetery 'El Campo Santo' is one of Old Town San Diego's most haunted locations. This is part 2 of our series on Hauntings & Ghosts of Haunted Old Town San Diego.

Ghosts of Haunted Old Town San Diego Cemetery 
Tales of restless spirits wandering among the graves & haunting the local residents houses.
Cars parked in front of the cemetery (on top of many graves) may suddenly have trouble starting. Unseen hands may set off a wave of car alarms. Surrounding businesses and homes have experienced unexplained problems with lighting, electrical power, appliances and alarm systems.

Native American and Hispanic apparitions have also been known to appear within the graveyard and in the surrounding area, sometimes even fooling the living into thinking they are one of the Old Town employees who dress up in period costumes.

People who leave their cars  parked in front of the cemetery (on top of the many graves) often find them hard to start afterwards. Car alarms can often be heard from cars parked here, set off by unseen hands.

People visiting the cemetery report feeling an icy chill when they walk through some spots.
Some describe the chill as if walking through a freezing, unknown presence.
In the evenings, what looks like an Hispanic or Native American can be seen floating just above the ground.

A misty, glowing figure can sometimes also be seen drifting along the sidewalk, just outside the cemetery wall.

Figures that are seen here are often mistaken for park employees that dress up in period costume.

These ghostly  figures however, quickly vanish without a trace, unlike their living counterparts.
A woman in a white Victorian costume appears, then disappears along the south wall.
Some figures that glide through here are only partially visible. It is not unusual to hear someone report seeing only the upper torso of a man or woman.


History of the Haunted El Campo Santo Cemetery
El Campo Santo Cemetery is San Diego's second oldest cemetery, and dates back to 1849 with the burial of its first resident, Juan Adams. Burials in this Catholic Cemetery continued through 1880, welcoming San Diego dead of all different backgrounds, including Yankee Jim Robinson who was hung at the site of the Whaley House. Located in Old Town, the residents of El Campo Santo have been repeatedly disturbed as the growing city moved the graves to make room for the living. In 1889, the community built a horse-drawn street car line through the cemetery, right over 18 existing graves. This line eventually became a road, San Diego Blvd, and, in 1942, was paved and turned into a modern street.

That first street car line was emblematic of the cemetery’s history. At least thirty graves linger beneath the streets and sidewalks of San Diego Blvd and Lindwood Street. In 1933 the San Diego Historical Society restored El Campo Santo as accurately as possible based on early photographs and descriptions. Now, the cemetery includes an adobe wall, reset markets, rebuilt paling enclosures and a plain white cross in the center of the plot.

Despite the historical society’s goodwill gesture, many believe the ghosts of El Campo Santo were not appeased.

Our next post will be about San Diego's Haunted Cosmopolitan Hotel!

Ghosts of Old Town San Diego

Part 1 of Hauntings & Ghosts of Haunted Old Town San Diego.
The Haunted Whaley House, The Haunted Cosmopolitan Hotel & The Haunted Old Town Cemetery 'El Campo Santo' are Old Town San Diego's most haunted locations.

 
The Haunted Whaley House 
Ghosts of the haunted Whaley house
The earliest documented ghost at the Whaley House is “Yankee Jim”. James (aka Santiago) Robinson was convicted of attempted grand larceny in San Diego in 1852, and hanged on a gallows off the back of a wagon on the site where the house now stands. Although Thomas Whaley had been a spectator at the execution, he did not let it disuade him from buying the property a few years later and building a home for his family there. According to the San Diego Union, “soon after the couple and their children moved in, heavy footsteps were heard moving about the house. Whaley described them as sounding as though they were made by the boots of a large man. Finally he came to the conclusion that these unexplained footfalls were made by Yankee Jim Robinson.”

Many visitors to the house have reported encountering Thomas Whaley himself. The late June Reading, former curator of the museum, said, “We had a little girl perhaps 5 or 6 years old who waved to a man she said was standing in the parlor… We couldn’t see him. But often children’s sensitivity is greater than an adult’s.” However, many adults have reported seeing the apparition of Mr. Whaley, usually on the upper landing. One said he was “clad in frock coat and pantaloons, the face turned away from her, so she could not make it out. Suddenly it faded away.”


Even television personality Regis Philbin reported seeing Anna Whaley in the house. Anna isn't the only female visitors see or sense. Some have claimed to sense a small figure woman in the courtroom. No one has been able to identify this woman but it is believed she is one of the numerous tenants that the house was rented to. A long-haired little girl has also been spotted in the house, particularly in the dining room. According to an urban legend, the little girl is one of the Whaley children's playmates that broke her neck on a low-hanging clothesline in the backyard.

Human spirits aren't the only ones seen at the Whaley House. A parapsychologist reported seeing a spotted dog, perhaps a fox terrier, run down the hall in the house. The Whaley's owned a terrier named Dolly Varden.

History of The Haunted Whaley House
In addition to being the Whaley Family home, it housed a granary, the County Court House, San Diego's first commercial theater, various businesses including Thomas Whaley's own general store, a ballroom, a billiard hall, school, and polling place. Significant events, such as the siezure of the court documents and records in 1871, and the suicide of Violet Whaley in 1885 profoundly affected Thomas and Anna Whaley. These events, as well as the hangings which occurred on the property before the house was constructed, have suffused the Whaley House with an air of mystery and added to its reputation as something more than just California State Historic Landmark.

The Haunted Cosmopolitan Hotel & The Haunted Old Town Cemetery 'El Campo Santo' in Old Town San Diego, will be on the next 2 posts.

Cancer New Moon (Ghost Hunting Weather Report)


Ghost Hunting Weather Report
The July 18 Cancer New Moon (9:24 p.m. PDT) evokes the nurturing power of the Mother, bestowing her blessings at the same time as the T-square ignites. Cancer’s message is to care for ourselves and others, to trust that the Great Mother is watching over us and we are safe. Cancer fosters the deeper heart-to-heart connection we are collectively moving toward, so gather close family and friends around you at this New Moon.
This is also a good time to contact your ancestors and gain their strength and aid. The ancestors (whether they are related to you by blood or not) are awaiting your call. Cancer corresponds to the Family gua (located in the middle of the left wall as you enter the front door), and is related to stability, financial and emotional security and family or domestic happiness.


It’s another New Moon: when the magically minded make wishes and astrologers attempt to divine this cycle’s intentions. But fates are personal. Even if a new moon chart could be forced to describe them all, no single astrologer could tell that many stories. The wishes you make now may indeed be super-powered, but if you don’t have a strong relationship with the archetypes, don’t expect special favors. If you rarely visited your cookie-baking grandmother, don’t expect her to FedEx goodies to your dorm room. New Moons are potent times to forge alliances with the gods. Visit the invisible world. Bow and open yourself to their touch. Make an offering. Humans have been rendezvousing with these archetypes for thousands of years. When you call out to the gods, they do respond!
Water was Cancer’s first language. As a child, she babbled like a brook, thundered like a waterfall, and sank deep into thought like a well. Speaking this way, she learned how to feel all of her feelings completely. When somebody vulnerable is in danger, her heart can storm like the ocean. But most days she flows like a cool mountain stream, soothing harsh edges, blessing the roots, and finding out everyone’s secrets. She’s the Moon’s own daughter. When Cancer smiles her Moon-face smile, you can’t help but feel loved and safe. Into summer’s landscape, she carries safety pins, a damp cloth for soothing brows, colorful band-aids, and a miracle tea that makes you feel like you’ve enjoyed a peaceful sleep with happy dreams.
Visit Cancer and she’ll watch you like a pot that might boil over. “Here, you look like you need this,” she’ll say, handing you something home-baked and delicious. She knows what the birds are thinking. She can cry at the drop of a hat. Her sensitivity used to make me wonder about the durability of her blessings. But over time I learned that she’s nobody’s fool. She has a genuine talent for making things grow. Just look at her garden!  When she sits so calmly next to you, she’s steady as a mother watching a sleeping infant. She’ll feed you with quiet spoons of strength, protection, and the knowledge that wherever you are is your home. If you accept what she offers this cycle, her blessings can nurture you for months to come.
It’s easy to call in Cancer. Just find a safe place and come to stillness. Let your weary mind go, as if you were dropping into a cool bath on a hot summer day. Sink into the good that sustains you. Cancer is a water sign—its energy is fluid, cleansing, and receptive. Water sign cycles are particularly sweet for making tender connections with loved ones. They’re auspicious for spiritual practice too; whatever you sit with now can be more deeply absorbed. Listen to your intuition. Follow the intricate paths of your imagination. Commit to your creativity.
Each Moon cycle brings new energy for growth. But what specifically should you grow now? Astrology typically answers “what” questions by looking at houses. Look to the house of your birth chart with Cancer on the cusp: here’s your personal seed bed this month. This is the place where you usually “do” this sign, where the Moon is most at home, and the dance of her phases is most relevant. The New Moon may bring a unique opportunity here… but you must tune in.

Cancer’s Response
Waiting for Cancer to show up is the fun part. No way can I predict it for you. You may get a brilliant new idea for a creative project—or a sudden urge to really clean your house. It’s amazing what clearing and organizing your space can do. It’s like birds building the nest before the eggs appear. Or perhaps you’ll be asked to act as Cancer’s agent. You might bake a cake for a friend who’s in the doldrums. A child or lost cat might need your help. Cancer’s message? Notice how much you receive whenever you selflessly give.

Haunted Knott's Berry Farm


Ghosts of Knott's Berry Farm
Strange noises and eerie feelings have been described by employees of the Peanuts Playhouse in camp snoopy. It has also been reported that lights turn themselves on and off with no one else present. The old Dinosaur Ride (which was in the area now occupied roughly by the Johnny Rockets in Boardwalk) was also said to be haunted by a former maintanance employee and a young boy.

The upstairs of Virginia's Gift Shop on the exterior of the park is said to be haunted as is the Bird Cage Theater and Mrs. Knott's Chicken Dinner Restaurant.

The lady that was working in the Teddy Bear store told a story about the building when it was still the old Print Shop (when we were there you could still see the faded word print underneath the word shop on the sign to the Teddy Bear store). Apparantly there were stamps (not the kind you mail) on display on shelves on the wall and for no apparent reason some of them started falling off of the shelves.


Knott's Berry Farm & Calico Ghost Town
Calico Ghost Town came to life in 1881 when the Silver King Mine was claimed, just eight short years later Walter Knott was born in 1889.  Both the Town and Walter were born in California in San Bernardino County.  When Walter was young he worked for a short time as a carpenter at Calico and his uncle John King was one of the founding partners in the mine that had his name and spurned the birth of Calico.
These memories must have stuck with young Walter because in the 1920’s after he began his Berry Farm and later the Chicken Dinner Restaurant with his wife Cordelia in the City of Buena Park, California, he built a mock ghost town to entertain the guests that came to their Farm and Restaurant.  In Walter’s own words, from 1942:  “Every time I have the opportunity to get away for a couple of days I like to visit the ghost towns of the west for we are continually seeking materials with which to reconstruct the ghost town here at Knott’s Berry Place. By securing a building here, part of another there, an old bar in one place or something else somewhere else we add to the picture we are attempting to portray – a composite picture of the ghost towns of the west as they appeared in ‘49 and the early ‘50′s. We are not collecting museum pieces nor is it the intention to build a museum. Our thought is to collect a town but as that is impossible we try to do the next best thing – build or reconstruct a ghost town that will be authentic and show life as it was lived in the early days”.  This concept was a total success for the Knott’s and by 1950 they had a replica of a typical ghost town in Buena Park.  It was at this point that Walter Purchased the entire ghost town of Calico in 1951.  Walter then moved some original buildings to Knott’s Berry Farm to add to his already existing ghost town and restored and re-built other buildings at the Calico site.  There are still five original buildings still standing at Calico.  It was at this time there was much going on simultaneously at Calico and Knott’s, thus there were many similarities between the two places.  In 1966 after fully restoring Calico Ghost Town, Walter deeded the whole town to the County of San Bernardino and it became the county regional park that it still is today.
What are these so called similarities between these two places.  First let’s look at the use of the name Calico that Walter used at Knott’s after purchasing the town in 1951.  Walter used the Calico name for many attractions and areas in Knott’s, some of these names were:  The Calico Railroad, The Calico Mine Ride, The Calico Log Ride (on a side note, John Wayne was the first official person to ride this attraction), Calico Square, The Calico Saloon and they also had a scale model of Calico Ghost Town and a mural/painting in Saloon titled, “Saturday Night in Calico”.
A building that stands at both Calico and Knott’s is the Bottle House, this interesting building was not really a Calico remnant and it is doubtful that one ever existed there but Walter had one built at each site because bottle houses were known to exist in the old west.
There was an attraction that graced both places for a number of years, at Knott’s it was called The Haunted Shack and at Calico it is called The Mystery Shack.  This attraction was a walk through experience and guests are treated to the optical illusions that characterized these attractions, water runs uphill, small children tower over their older siblings and chairs stand on two legs.  The Haunted Shack at Knott’s was removed  in 2000 but the Mystery Shack at Calico is still there for all to enjoy.
Knott’s is now owned by a large corporation and It might be sheer coincidence but there is a new connection between the Calico and Knott’s at Halloween.  At Knott’s it was called Knott’s Scary Farm Haunt and at Calico it is called The Calico Ghost Haunt.  Both places decorate for this holiday and have many special “scary” events in the month of October.
Calico and Knott’s are great haunted places to visit, if you want to see what Knott’s used to be like before it became such a large amusement park, visit Calico and have a great time re-living the old west.


Haunted Calico Ghost Town

Calico Ghost Town is one of  the most haunted locations in California, with many types of ghosts & paranormal phenomenon. Calico has Shadow people, orbs, full bodied apparitions, ghost lights & more. 

Quick history
In 1881, three men, Charlie Meacham, Johnny McBride, and Larry Silvia discovered silver in the Calico Mountains. Miners from all around came to work the mines. The town of Calico sprang up, and at one time reached a population of 3,500, not including an additional 1,500 in the greater Calico Mining District. All the silver from Calico was sent to San Francisco to make coins. By 1900, the price of silver dropped half of its value, and most of the silver had been mined out. Miners left to find other fortunes and the town died.


Ghosts of Calico
One of the most often sighted spirits is that of Lucy Bell King Lane, a woman who spent nearly seventy years of her life in Calico. When Lucy was just ten years old, she moved with her parents, two brothers, and a sister to nearby Bismarck, which overlooked the town of Calico. To get to school, Lucy would have to slide down the steep slope in the morning and make the long tiring hike up the hill afterwards. When she was 18 years old, she married John Robert Lane and the two opened a general store that provided not only provisions to the mining population, but also cloth, nails, and hardware. They prospered briefly but when the silver market began to decline, the couple left Calico in 1899. However, the couple returned in 1916, making their old store their home. Four years later, they moved into the old courthouse and post office building. Her husband John died in 1934, but Lucy would continue to live a long life, staying in the same house until she died in 1967 at the age of 93.
Today, their old home has become a museum, that exhibits the life the Lanes lived, as well as a collection of mining materials, photographs, and Native American displays from the times before Calico's silver deposits were discovered. 

Though Lucy died four decades ago, she is evidently fond of her old home town as she is frequently still sighted there. Most often she has been seen walking between their old store and the home that she lived in until her death. When she is spied, she is described as wearing a long black dress, most likely the very lace one that she was buried in. Her favorite rocking chair has also been said to rock of its own accord and often pictures are taken off the wall at night, only to found the next morning in a neat pile on the floor. At Lane’s old store, clerks have often heard unexplainable noises and catch movement out of the corners of their eyes, which they also attribute to Lucy. The Lane house was the longest occupied original structure in Calico.
But, favorite resident Lucy Lane is not the only phantom that lurks in Calico. At that very same school house sitting atop the hill in Calico, a number of people have reported seeing a little girl about 11 or 12 years, most often old smiling through a window. Sometimes she even leans out and waves at passers by.
 
Others have allegedly seen phantom school teachers and another small child who has been known to grab people’s legs or pinch their ankles. Some visitors have also reported seeing a floating red light inside the school. Also a shadow person has been seen on the roof of the school house.

Though the hills surrounding Calico once held dozens of mines, and the many pits and ruins continue to attest to this, Calico features the Maggie Mine, that once produced some $13 million in silver ore, and now its tunnels can be explored by visitors. In the 1,000 feet of tunnels that are open to the public, it should come as no surprise that many believe that spirits lurk within the mine’s depths.
number of visitors have reported extreme cold spots throughout the mine and feelings of "one's hair standing up" in various places, but most particularly where two miners known as the Mulcahey Brothers made their home in the mine. Though portions of the mine are blocked off behind grates, macabre mannequins add to the spooky feeling in the mine.

Near the Maggie’s Mine is Hank’s Hotel, which once belonged to an angry old cowboy whose spirit allegedly once punched a man in the leg who was standing on his fence. But more commonly, people have reported something tugging on their wrists, hands and clothing along the boardwalk in front of the hotel. These antics; however, are not generally blamed on the angry cowboy, but rather on a 4-5 year old child who has been seen roaming the boardwalk and the surrounding area.  


Also said to haunt Calico's boardwalks on Main Street is that of its last marshal, Tumbleweed Harris. A number of visitors have described seeing a big man with a white beard which fits the description of the man who kept the peace in Calico for seven years.
 
At the Calico Corral, a number of people have often heard the voices of crowds and celebration coming from the barn that once hosted regular Saturday night dances.  At Lil’s Saloon, one of Calico's original buildings, sounds of an old-style piano and rowdy crowds have been heard when no one was in the building. Employees have also often reported hearing the jingle of spurs and other noises that can’t be explained.  Another spectral lady in a long white dress has frequently been seen walking near the outskirts of the ghost town and at the building that once housed the town theater, which is now the R&D Fossils & Minerals Shop, a another female ghost named Esmeralda, has allegedly has taken up residence. 

Calico had another famous resident – that of Dorsey, the "mail carrying dog.” Dorsey was found in 1883 by Postmaster Jim Stacy, when the hungry and footsore black and white shepherd was lying on his porch. Stacy quickly adopted him and Dorsey became his faithful friend. In addition to his postmaster duties, Stacy also had an interest in a mine in nearby Bismarck. On one occasion, when Stacy needed to get an urgent message to his partner at the mine, he tied a note to Dorsey’s neck and sent him up there. Before long, Dorsey returned with a reply. Dorsey was soon carrying messages back and forth to the mine frequently, when Stacy had the idea to make the dog a regular mail carrier. Soon, the dog was carrying all the mail from Calico to Bismarck, bearing his load in little pouches strapped to his back. For three years, Dorsey covered the mail route between the two camps and became so valuable that Stacy was offered $500 for the dog, to which Stacy replied: "I'd rather sell a grandson."
Dorsey's legend was revived in a 1972 album entitled "The Ballad of Calico” by Kenny Rogers. The song was called "Dorsey, the Mail Carrying Dog.” And, of course, in haunted Calico, he has been revived in another way – the "spectral dog." On several occasions, Dorsey has been seen as a shadow-like apparition at the cemetery and near the Print Shop that stands near the original location of the post office.

Haunted Ghost Town Locations in Nevada

Here are some of the most haunted ghost towns of Nevada

Haunted Virginia City NV
The Silver Queen Hotel in Virginia City Nevada is said to be one of the most haunted places in Virginia City. When you spend the night in the hotel it is said that people hear the sound of a huge fight some where in the hotel. Many people complain about the noise the next morning but of course it was only paranormal fight. A white mist is also seen floating around the hotel at night. It has been seen for many years. People also see the ghost of a 7-8 year old little girl in a pretty dress.
Many people claim to see the ghost of a cowboy dressed all in black walk into traffic on main street and simply vanish. Many people who see it think its a trick put on for the tourists but its not.No one has ever been able to figure out who he is but he's still being seen by many people.
There is the ghost of a large Collie Dog that people have seen all over town for many years. It has been seen to run into the sides of buildings and simply vanish. 

Haunted Virginia City Cemetery
All kinds of strange paranormal things go on in the Virginia City Cemetery from a glowing tombstone to a tombstone that just won't stay put. People say the tombstone weighs several hundred pounds and it would take several men to moe it. The tombstone has been moved several times and no one has ever seen it move. The strange thing is that you can clearly see the path it takes when it moves.
There is a strange fire in the cemetery that has been seen for years. People say it appears to look like a regular campfire but when you get to it there is no fire and no sign of one. Some people including some police officiers have claimed to see shadows moving around the fire. Some people have also claimed to see and hear horses near the fire. 

Haunted Rhyolite Ghost Town
Hard to imagine that the town of Rhyolite Nevada once had a population of 10.000 plus persons. There is even a house here built of beer and whiskey bottles because lumber was in such short supply. Its interesting to think that people once lived here and went about their normal every day activities and then one day everyone just left. Hard to imagine indeed.
And with every ghost town of course you have ghosts. There are many tales about the ghosts lurking in Rhyolite Nevada and probally more than a few of them are true. There's the brown man said to be a gold prospector who died in the town after he brought huge nuggets in to town to be tested. The legend says he was poisoned by the barber to get the gold. He is seen as a brown shadow with a big floppy hat wandering around town.


Haunted Goldfield NV

The Goldfield Hotel (above) is said to be haunted. The story goes that room 109 is haunted by a pregnant woman. Rumor has it that she was a prostitute named Elizabeth that was chained to the radiator in the room by the original hotel's owner George Winfield. After she gave birth she was left to die in the room and the newborn infant was thrown down a mine shaft, which the hotel was built over. She is said to be seen in room 109 and her presence felt by those who visit that room. The baby is said to be heard crying on lonesome nights.
There are reportedly several other ghosts on the property as well. The ghost of several small children on the lobby staircase, a ghost that "stabs" people who visit the hotel, and even the ghost of George Winfield himself.

Legend of the "Lechuza"

CRYPTOZOOLOGY NEWS, Giant owl photographed at Carrizo Springs

The legend of the "Lechuza" has been told for years. Now, a recent picture has sparked a discussion about whether the picture is real.

The picture believed to have been taken in Carrizo Springs shows two men holding a white owl with a very large wing span.
Our Lauren Kendrick has more in our top story.
The picture has definitely got people interested whether or not they believe in the myth.
We spoke to one of the owners of Petland who tells us this picture has her baffled when it comes to classifying the type of owl.
"I think people would like to believe it's real just like they'd like to believe big foot's real and the loch ness monster and all the other creatures."
Owner of Petland Laredo, Laura Hatton, gives us her take on the picture that's been circulating social networking sites for the past few days.
The picture was taken in Carrizo Springs.
Many people are calling the big white bird "Lechuza" from the urban legend commonly told in the Mexican heritage where the spirit of a woman or a witch turns into an owl.
"Those wives tales are there for a reason. They are a legend. Perhaps there at one time was a much larger species of an owl that was here."
Hatton says it looks like a barn owl but is way too large. She says it's really hard to determine the exact species by the undercarriage. By looking at the picture, she says it's hard to tell if it is indeed real or fake.
"The head is really out of focus so it makes you wonder about photo shop. But the wings itself look like a barn owl."
“Whether people believe in the legend or not, people have been sounding off on Facebook so we decided to go out on the streets and see what people had to say about the owl"
One thing Hatton says doesn't add up is the size of the bird.
"The size doesn't make any sense for the species of an owl because even the largest...a great horned owl doesn't look anything like it and it's still way smaller."

Solar Storm 7-14-2012


(Ghost Hunting Weather Report)
Solar storm will hit the Earth this Saturday 7-14-2012

CAPE CANAVERAL, Florida -- The joint NASA and NOAA Space Weather Prediction Center says that the R3-Radio Blackout Storms (Strong) that occurred at 12:49 Eastern Daylight Time on July 12, 2012 were accompanied by a Coronal Mass Ejection associated with an X-class solar flare that is traveling towards the Earth at 850 miles per second.  Active Region 1520, located close to center disk pictured above, is the culprit on today's events.  

Hampered by limited observations of the event, Space Weather Prediction Center forecasters are now anticipating the passage of the Coronal Mass Ejection by the Earth around 1:00 a.m. Eastern Daylight Time on Saturday, July 14, 2012.

G1 (minor) Geomagnetic Storm activity is expected to then ensue through the rest of the day.  An S1 (minor) Solar Radiation Storm is now occurring, also as a consequence of the solar flare/coronal mass ejection.  The parent active region, NOAA 1520, appears to have retained its ability to erupt, so more solar flares are possible

Radio blackouts occur when the X-rays or extreme UV light from a flare disturb the layer of Earth's atmosphere known as the ionosphere, through which radio waves travel.  The constant changes in the ionosphere change the paths of the radio waves as they move, thus degrading the information they carry.  This affects both high and low frequency radio waves alike. Radio blackouts are rated on a scale from R1 (minor) to R5 (extreme). An R2 radio blackout can result in limited degradation of both high- and low-frequency radio communication and GPS signals.


Great weather for ghost hunting

Some of the best times for experiencing paranormal activity or phenomena is two to three days before or after the full moon and new moon. These are the waxing crescent phase, the waxing gibbous phase, the waning gibbous phase, and the waning crescent phase. Other good times for Paranormal activity and investigations would be during peak geomagnetic fields, solar storms and after thunder storms. Also during the colder months, electrostatic energy is at a high.
