I don't know what culture the artefact comes from, but the image/photo is from the front of Violent Femmes' Hallowed Ground album.

No, sorry. Not at all like what I witnessed. My experience is of a momentary twinkle, not associated with any other object, that starts and stops in the blink of an eye. Iridium flares are quite drawn out.

I changed jobs a couple of months ago & started working in a very different role at a different company. However, the small team (there are 8 of us) are almost exactly like the team I just left (in used to be in a team of 10). Several of my new work mates look/act very much like people I used to work with & one lady had almost the same "back story" as a woman I worked with in my previous job. Whats going on?! Shocked

We are continuing the experiment with some altered parameters.

So, number 9, you see your attempts to escape are fruitless.

(The villain always smiles, of course, at such a moment, so a smiley might be misinterpreted )

I recorded the ambient sound of some Dutch megaliths. Unfortunately I could find nothing strange in the recordings. But it was a nice excuse to linger and enjoy the atmosphere:

You can find the pictures here:

Note:
I tried many tricks to extract something mysterious or ominous, but nothing worked Confused Running the recordings through a noise-removal filter adds some EVP-like side effects but they are not good enough to post here.

A friend of mine reckoned he could hear them make a noise "almost beyond hearing" and that it intensified when he dowsed them.

I know, FOAF and you have to believe in dowsing as having some effect.


This would be late 1970s, early 1980s and I don't know him anynore or I'd offer to go and find out more Embarassed
