Excavations at Peru’s Huaca Prieta archaeological complex have uncovered evidence that habitation in the area stretches back to nearly 15,000 years ago. The site itself is home to a 7,800-year-old pyramid mound, with the area previously believed to have been inhabited for thousands of years. However, this new find is part of a growing body of evidence that humans had settled the Americas far earlier than scientists had originally thought.
One of ufology’s most high-profile cases is 1997’s Phoenix Lights incident, involving the mass sighting of bright lights arranged in a v-shaped formation over Phoenix, Arizona, on March 13, 1997. Amongst the thousands of witnesses to the event, then-governor Fife Symington would later come forward to report that he witnessed the lights as well — an event that he made light of ten years earlier. And now, actor Kurt Russell has come forward, to report that he was a witness to the Phoenix Lights as well.
The United Kingdom’s National Archives has announced that 18 documents pertaining to UFOs that were withheld from release alongside thousands of other UFO documents in 2013 won’t be released until after the UK’s general election in June.
