There will be a full moon on New Year’s Eve this year, but not just any kind of moon — a blue moon! No, the moon won’t be blue in color. The term blue moon refers to a second full moon within the same month — or does it?
Some think it is an ominous sign that 2010 will be ushered in by a blue moon. While others will probably be getting too drunk to notice what kind of moon is floating above the world on the last night of the year … read more about by clicking the link below:
I was attending a Christmas tree lighting ceremony and celebration in the tiny Minnesota town of Jenkins, when I caught this miraculous picture on camera.
People were standing around a bonfire on a cold, snowy evening, singing Christmas carols and drinking hot chocolate. Suddenly, this magical image of what looks like a dragon leaps up from the flames!
The man in the foreground appears to be bowing before this Christmas apparition. For those of you who are skeptics, I don’t even know how to use Photoshop!
So was this just a lucky click and a trick of the flames, or a true Christmas miracle? You decide!
It was way back in the summer of 1959 — the year I was born, actually — when some local guys were out camping and they stumbled upon something astounding in the remote northern Minnesota words. It was a mushroom the size of a small Toyota … well, not quite that big, but really, really huge! Unnaturally so.
But that’s only the beginning of this fantastic tale, which these men swear is true.

As a professional journalist who is willing to occasionally examine topics of paranormal interest, I get a lot of calls from people who have experienced strange and unexplained events. One of the most frequent calls I get here in northern Minnesota is from people who have seen strange and exotic flying globes of light.
A recent case in point:
As elderly retired dairy farmers from the tiny town of Skime, Minnesota, called to say that he and a friend were startled by a strange object which appeared suddenly to them above a line of trees. This is the way he told it to me, in his own words:
“This was about 10 years ago. We were playing cards at a friend’s house until about 11 o’clock at night. It was wintertime. There were no stars or moon…it was a cloudy night. We were driving home…just as we were crossing where County Road 18 crosses Number 9 this big bright thing just suddenly appeared.
“It was very luminous…a dull orange in color. It had a definite outline to it…I would say it was oval or egg shaped. It was about 400 yards from us. We were due north of it…it was so low we could see the outline of the trees in front of it.

Police and the National Weather Service received numerous phone calls from frightened and/or perplexed people who had no idea about what might have caused the burst of light.
Meteorologists and astronomers are certain it was a meteor — and most likely an early Geminid — which are an annual meteor shower which occurs at this time of year and peaks on Dec. 13.
