For centuries, man has sought to reach out to God’s servants and messengers in a real-world, palpable way that leaves no room for spiritual doubt. In the time of Queen Elizabeth I in England, world famous occultist Dr. John Dee and his helper, Edward Kelley, developed a system for contacting angels that came to be called “Enochian Magick.” Dee’s system has survived the centuries and been passed down to us.

“ANGEL SPELLS – THE ENOCHIAN OCCULT WORKBOOK OF CHARMS, SEALS, TALISMANS AND CIPHERS” offers the reader a history lesson on Dee’s method for contacting angels, including its origins in the Jewish and Christian mystical traditions. The book includes an exclusive interview with author Aaron Leitch, who still practices Dee’s methods over 400 years later.

For those not quite ready to dive into the more complex aspects of Enochian Angel magick, simpler – but just as effective – methods are taught here by psychic Maria D’Andrea, who provides step-by-step instructions to petition specific angels for help with any problem, large or small. A dozen talismans created my Ms D' Andrea are provided each corresponding with a different Arch Angel.

And as a bonus supplement, we have included Bishop Allen Greenfield’s classic work, “SECRET CIPHER OF THE UFONAUTS,” to assist in contacting angelic aliens in their own language and to aid in decoding what they have spoken to us!

This fascinating work includes all the talismans and symbols and ciphers you need to set up your own angel alter so that you may proceed with contacting the celestial kingdom in an organized effort.

For subscribers of the Conspiracy Journal Newsletter this book is on sale for the special price of only $20.00 (plus $5.00 shipping).  This offer will not last long so ORDER TODAY!

Divers Retrieve Metal Associated With Atlantis Legend
By Rhodi Lee

A group of divers who were exploring a 2,600 year-old shipwreck off the coast of Sicily discovered ingots believed to be made of orichalcum, a metal that the ancient Greek philosopher Plato wrote to have been forged in the legendary city of Atlantis.

The orichalcum, whose composition and origin remain widely debated, is said to have been invented by a mythological Greek-Phoenician alchemist named Cadmus and was considered very valuable in the ancient times it ranked next to gold.

In the fourth century B.C., Plato, one of the greatest geniuses of all time, mentioned the orichalcum in the Critias dialogue with his description of Atlantis being a realm that flashes with the red light of the mysterious metal.

He said that the orichalcum was mined there and that was used to cover the floors and structures of floors of Poseidon's temple. Many experts today believe that the metal is a brass-like alloy produced in the ancient times using a process known as cementation.

Sebastiano Tusa, Sicily's superintendent of the Sea Office, said that 39 ingots had been found by a team of divers who were exploring a shipwreck that dates back to the first half of the sixth century.

The sunken ship, which was found about 1,000 feet from the coast and at a depth of 10 feet, is believed to have likely been transporting cargo from either Greece or Asia Minor when it sank on its way to the port city of Gela in southern Sicily, probably during a storm.

Tusa hailed the finding as a unique discovery given that no similar object has yet been discovered before.

"Nothing similar has ever been found," Tusa said. "We knew orichalcum from ancient texts and a few ornamental objects."

To determine the composition of the 39 ingots, the archaeological team had the cast metals undergo x-ray fluorescence analysis. It turns out that the metals are composed mainly of copper and zinc with small traces of iron, nickel and lead.  The discovery of these metals implies the presence of artisan workshops in the coastal town of Gela in southern Sicily, which flourished during the time of Greek colonisation in 689 B.C.  The ship that sank 2,600 years ago may have been transporting goods to the island while sailing through stormy tides.

Until now, the components and roots of orichalcum is being contested. Some experts compare it with amber or other copper-based compounds, but most think that this alloy is more like brass. Dr Enrico Mattievich, a retired physics professor and specialist on mineralogy, believes otherwise and posits that orichalcum was made by ancient Peruvians during the Chavin Era from 1200 B.C. to 200 B.C and these were made of 9 percent copper, 15 percent silver and 76 percent gold.

Also, the ancient people of the Andes were known for their advanced skills in metalworking processes.  Mattievich says that the metals found by Sebastiano Tusa and associates are not orichalcum but rather pieces of alloys made of copper, zinc and lead.

While classification of the 39 ingots continues to stir up more scholarly discussions, the archaeological team will push through with next phase of exploring the 6th century sunken ship and its contents. Prior to this discovery, a shipwreck off an Aeolian Island was detected by American divers in 2010 and was explored in 2014.

Contacting Aliens and Angels With Cipher and Symbols
By Sean Casteel

Tim Beckley, the CEO of Inner Light/Global Communications, has always had a healthy interest in helping his customers make their personal spiritual journey to some kind of positive, joyful outcome. While Beckley resists some of the more “preachy” literary paths to salvation, he does inject into the marketplace a goodly amount of information intended to firm up your faith that there are patient, heavenly forces reaching out to those who are open to them.

Not only do these heavenly force reach out to us, we are provided with a method of reaching out to them as well. Which is the subject of a recent release from Inner Light/Global Communications called “Angel Spells: The Enochian Occult Workbook of Charms, Seals, Talismans and Ciphers.”


Perhaps some explanation about what the word “Enochian” in the title means. It refers to an “angel summoning” system first developed by John Dee, the most respected scholar of his day, in the 1500s when Queen Elizabeth I ruled over England. Dee, working with a psychic partner named Edward Kelley, attempted to open communications with the angelic realm.

I learned from my initial research into Dee and Enochian magick that it is an astonishingly complicated subject, so I turned to an expert. Aaron Leitch is the author of several books in the field that attempt to make the study a little easier for the uninitiated. Leitch told me that in the apocryphal Book of Enoch the prophet Enoch is said to have communed with angels on a regular basis and even to have been taken up to heaven and given a tour of the place. The book was later rejected from the Biblical canon and it was impossible to find a copy anywhere after it had been outlawed by the early Church many centuries before Dee’s time.

But Dee knew about the legendary Book of Enoch. He wrote in his journals that if Enoch, Ezekiel, Daniel and all the other prophets old had gotten their wisdom directly from angelic sources, why couldn’t he do the same? So he began to explore occultism, reading medieval Christian magickal texts such as “The Keys of Solomon” and other sources that instructed the practitioner on how to call down angels and command demons.

Dee and Kelley would eventually create their own system for summoning angels that fused together the Jewish mystical work, the Kabbalah, along with the then current trends in Christian mysticism. Dee never called his system “Enochian Magick,” however. That label was later applied by historians in reference to Dee’s dedicated interest in the prophet’s long lost book. But Dee saw himself as a faithful Christian even though his religious practices might have seemed a bit strange to his average fellow believers.

Having summoned the angels, either as a vision in Kelley’s scrying stone (a variation on the more familiar crystal ball) or as audible speaking voices, Dee would write in his journal whatever the angels imparted. The problem quickly arose, however, that something besides the Queen’s English was needed to make the conversations more authentic, more meaningful. What was to Dee a completely unknown tongue (sometimes called “The Language of Eden” because it was believed to have first been spoken by Adam in the Garden) was revealed to him by his angels. The language came to be called “Enochian” because it was given to the world by Dee in the course of his work.

“Angel Spells: The Enochian Occult Workbook of Charms, Seals, Talismans and Ciphers” includes the complete Enochian Keys, which are the requisite invocations to be spoken to summon the angels in both their preferred Edenic language and in English. There are also guides to pronouncing the Enochian words should you wish to experiment with all this a little yourself. According to author Aaron Leitch, who has written a two-volume study and analysis of the language called “The Angelic Language,” one can bypass a great many of the complicated rituals, mathematics and encrypted instructions along with the language and still have a satisfactory angelic contact experience.


And where do aliens fit in all this? The Book of Enoch has long been thought to contain elements of a typical alien abduction experience. Enoch is roused from his sleep by two angels and taken aloft to tour heaven. He is given information on the workings of the cosmos and then returned to his home. There is a school of UFOlogy that equates the angels who abducted Enoch and Biblical stories like Elijah’s journey to heaven aboard a fiery chariot with basic elements of the present day UFO phenomenon. Dee sought to contact the same beings who had so graciously kidnapped Enoch, and it is left to us to wonder if he succeeded.

“Angel Spells” also tells the story of the legendary occultist Aleister Crowley’s experiments with the Enochian magick he had learned while a member of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, an occult society founded in London in 1888. After Crowley broke with the Order, he continued to refine what he was taught until it became his own system. While on vacation with his wife in Cairo in April 1904, he received a surprising response to his many years of practicing Enochian magick: the appearance of “Aiwass,” or “Aiwaz,” a being Crowley regarded as super-human. The drawing that Crowley made in his journal at the time unmistakably resembles the familiar gray alien of our time. One is hard-pressed not to draw the conclusion that John Dee was most likely working with these same beings since he and Crowley were using such similar methods of summoning them. Crowley wrestled all his life with the nature of the Higher Beings he contacted, including Aiwass, and died in poverty in 1947.


The late William Alexander Oribello believed himself to be guided by angels from his childhood on and wrote several books for Tim Beckley that sought to teach others to do the same. Over the years, Oribello studied many sacred texts on communicating with the Angelic Kingdom. He discovered that there are certain times when they would be more readily available to come to our aid as well as offer guidance and support. Oribello always emphasized the importance of casting spells or praying while burning specific colored candles.

Oribello contributes a chapter to “Angel Spells” in which he summarizes his teachings regarding the Archangels, their influences, their association with various Zodiac signs and their relevance to specific days of the week. His chapter also features information about the type of candles to burn that will bring angels into our aura. He is able to make what could have been a strenuously complex cosmology into something charmingly simple and reassuring and even entertaining.

We are next given some female insight into all this by the Reverend Maria D’Andrea, an internationally known professional psychic from Budapest, Hungary. Maria gives simple step-by-step instructions on using some of Dee and Kelley’s ritual objects and combining them with the angel symbols she created and which are included in her chapter. Maria follows that up with another chapter that teaches the reader to pray for safety and protection, how to use certain talismans and exactly which angel to summon for a specific purpose.

Here it is important to explain the “Workbook” part of the book’s subtitle. Some of the ritual symbols in the book are intended to be photocopied onto cardstock or, preferably, virgin parchment. For example, there is a full-page reproduction of a symbol called the Sigillum Dei Aemaeth which was used by Dee in his Enochian rituals and is crucial to the magickal process. The idea is to photocopy the complex design and then use it as an altar in combination with the angelic symbols provided by Maria. This is all simpler than it might sound and does not require anything approaching the machinations of more pure forms of Enochian magick. One can also purchase the symbols already nicely printed out and thus avoid a trip to the photocopy store. Just check the ad in the back of “Angels Spells”  

A special bonus section consisting of a reprint of Bishop Allen Greenfield’s landmark book “Secret Cipher of the UFOnauts” is also part of “Angel Spells.” Greenfield holds the title of bishop in the Gnostic Church and has a long history of active – and contentious – membership in many occult organizations, including the Ordo Templi Orientis, established by Aleister Crowley.

Greenfield’s “Secret Cipher of the UFOnauts” is a provocative magickal text for the modern age that has come to be regarded as a classic in the field and one which might be considered to have a particularly hip cachet. For a long time it was a rare and difficult book to track down but it is included in full in “Angel Spells.”

The book explains Greenfield’s theory that much of the UFO phenomenon can be “decoded” by using a method that draws on the Kabbalah, especially the numerology aspects of its Jewish mysticism, as well as other similar ancient systems. He believes the UFO occupants are an eternal race that has always reached out to certain human adepts by using hidden, obscure linguistic and mathematical symbolism, including elements of Crowley’s version of Enochian magick


Can contact with angels/aliens ever be something where we, as mere mortals, are an independent part of the conversation? Do we have the ability to bring such heavenly beings into our presence and then engage them in a dialogue in which they freely reveal what we are so eager to learn? Or does that sound a little too good to be true? Maybe you can answer that for yourself after reading “Angel Spells: The Enochian Occult Workbook of Charms, Seals, Talismans and Ciphers” and experimenting with some of the tools in the book.

However, be careful to approach all this with caution and to follow the instructions and rituals carefully. If you succeed in summoning an angel or two, you may find yourself in the company of something much more powerful than you ever imagined, an entity who is no respecter of persons and whose concerns and priorities are very different from your own. To quote Aaron Leitch, some of these angels can “fry your brain out with a single thought.” But you may also experience ecstatic visions and draw inexpressibly nearer to God. The decision as to whether to take the risk is entirely your own.

Do Star-Gates Exist?
By Martin J. Clemens

We humans are hopelessly obsessed with death.  We expend an incredible amount of time and energy wondering about, worrying about, and preparing for that inevitable end to each of our lives.  All of our religions are founded upon the idea that there is an afterlife, an existence beyond our corporeal selves.  It’s been that way for a long time, too.

One of the primary indicators of early human culture is whether or not the people in question undertook to bury their dead.  This happened as far back as 100,000 years ago, but the mindset that lead to it is likely much older than that.  As a species, our preoccupation with death and its attendant features is likely as old as our ability to comprehend what it means to be dead.

But, for as long as we’ve believed that there is a place, or several places even, that our loved ones travel to in their long, dark sleep, we’ve also tried to find ways to reach that place without the mess of dying.  This has been done in a number of ways; from mediation and chanting, to psychedelically induced spirit journeys, and to the physical embodiment of portals between this world and the next.  Those portals offer an interesting look at the impact of afterlife belief on our cultures.

In March 2013, a team of archaeologists from the University of Salento (Italy) stumbled across what has been dubbed ‘the gate to hell’ in southwestern Turkey.  It is believed that this portal to the afterlife, in this case the Greek Underworld, is a temple used to worship the Greek god Pluto.  Its traditional name is Pluto’s Gate or the Plutonium, and it was used by priests to demonstrate the power of Pluto and Kore – the lords of the underworld – to steal the life of whomever entered the portal.

A part of the World Heritage site of Hierapolis (now called Pamukkale), the Plutonium (which is Latin for Pluto) consisted of a shallow pool in which priests would sit to prepare themselves for rituals, a series of steps which served as an observatory for congregants, and a crude doorway into a natural underground chamber, from which deadly poisonous gases emanated.  The ceremonies at this site often included animal sacrifices, such as bulls, wherein they would lead the animals into the cave and then drag them back out once the fumes had overtaken them.

There are other, less morbid examples of portals to the afterlife in our history though.

Long have we known that the ancient people of what is now Bolivia and Peru in South America, had a penchant for elaborate temple construction and ritual, all in an effort to please and sometimes to communicate with their gods.

One spectacular example of ancient architecture dedicated to the transition between the here-and-now and the hereafter is the Gate of the Sun in what is now called Tiwanaku (also Tiahuanaco) in Bolivia.  The peoples who built and occupied Tiwanaku are largely unknown, as the settlement is dated to the pre-Incan era of 300-1000 AD, and the culture responsible apparently had no written language.  The Gate of the Sun is a 4 meter wide by 3 meter high stone archway that stands on an open terrace.  The arch is adorned with 48 carved squares, each with an effigy or winged figure looking toward a central character whose identity is unknown.  That central character is a carved figure of a man, with 24 radial lines surrounding its head, which may represent sunlight.  This figure also holds two staffs, which some believe represent lightning and thunder.

As mentioned, we know next to nothing about the Gate of the Sun, but some have presented theories about its use.  From an astrological observation post and primitive calendar, to a portal to the realm of the sky gods.  Author and famed ancient alien proponent David Childress points to similarities between Tiwanaku’s Gate of the Sun and the legendary H-blocks at Pumapunku and claims that these sites are evidence of lost fund-knowledge from unknown prehistoric civilizations, such as Atlantis or Lemuria.  He and others proclaim that the archway of the gate may have been, and perhaps still is, an actual portal to another realm.  The precision of the carvings and block cuts at Pumapunku are widely held to be much too advanced to have been the product of a culture as primitive as the Incas or those before them.  Childress also draws parallels between the Gate of the Sun and the Gate of the Gods.

The ruins of the ancient city state of Tiwanaku, where the Gate of the Sun stands prominently, is situated near the southern shore of Lake Titicaca, which is where the Aramu Muru portal is located.

Aramu Muru is actually found on the outskirts of a small town called Juli in the Hayu Marca hill.  It and Tiwanaku are within the province of Chucuito, which is commonly known as The Rome of America.  Aramu Muru is actually a rock face in the high-altitude mountains of Lake Titicaca that has been smoothed to a nearly flat surface with a roughly six foot high T-shaped alcove cut out of its centre at ground level.

That alcove is called Puerta de Hayu Marca, or in English, the portal of Hayu Marca, or more popularly, the Gate of the Gods.  Most in mainstream archaeology view Puerta de Hayu Marca to be an unfinished construction project, as it consists only of the single rock face and alcove, and has no obvious purpose.  There are traditional stories about the Gate, however, that show it to be quite important in Peruvian/Bolivian culture.

It’s said that the Gate of the Gods is a portal to the underground, and that it was used by a priest to travel to the underworld in order to hide the great golden disc of Coricancha away from the invading warriors of other lands.  Locals have long told stories of strange looking beings – tall, slender and not of this Earth – coming through the portal.  Some think, namely Childress and other ancient alien proponents, that the disc of Coricancha was actually some sort of alien technology used to activate and control the portal, which they believe is some kind of star-gate.  In fact, paranormal writer Jerry Willis claims to have travelled through the gateway himself during his own investigation of the area, though that should be taken with a grain of salt.

puerta-dioses-2Lake Titicaca itself, being the highest altitude freshwater lake on the planet, is the subject of a great many stories involving strange lights, UFO’s and other odd phenomenon.  In fact the whole area of Chucuito holds a wealth of strange stories and archaeological mysteries, and when you add in the various theories about this culture being a remnant of lost cultures the world over, it’s hard not to romanticise the findings and the people of the area.

Did ancient human cultures not only hold a belief in other realms of existence but also find a way to access those realms through some sort of lost knowledge, or perhaps knowledge offered by ancient visitors to Earth?  Mainstream science says, probably not, and that’s based on the lack of evidence for the existence of such knowledge and/or visitors, but there are learned men and women who disagree.

The Indecipherable Rohonc Codex
By M R Reese

The discovery of an unidentified text in Hungary has led to more than 200 years of attempts to determine who authored it and to decipher its contents. Many scholars have studied the text, known as the Rohonc Codex, in an effort to understand its meaning and to determine who wrote it and when it was drafted. However, these efforts have been futile to date, as the meaning and origin of the text still remain a mystery.

The Rohonc Codex was discovered in Hungary in the 1800s. It is believed to have been part of the personal library of Count Gusztáv Batthyány, before he donated his entire personal library to the Hungarian Academy of Sciences. When the Codex surfaced, it initially appeared to be from medieval times. However, the text, which appears to resemble Old Hungarian script, was completely indecipherable. The mysterious text led many to wonder what the writings meant, who wrote it, and what purpose it served. Many of these questions remain to be answered, as the author has not been identified, and the text has yet to be translated.

In total, the Rohonc Codex contains 448 pages of indecipherable text, which is similar to Old Hungarian script, as they are both written with a right-to-left orientation, and have similar combinations of straight and rounded characters. Scholars have asserted that in reality, the writing could be anything from Hindi to Old Hungarian, although it lacks features from each of those written languages. The number of different symbols used is considered to be extremely high, with ten times more symbols than are found in any known alphabet.

The paper within the Codex has the unique characteristic of being watermarked. Each page contains the watermark, which has the appearance of an anchor, which is within a circle, which is within a six-rayed star. The watermark itself appears to date to 1529-1540 AD, although the actual Codex appears to have been written much earlier than that. This discrepancy makes it difficult to determine exactly when the text was written, although it is possible that the book was transcribed after its initial creation.

The Codex contains more than just written text – it is also accompanied by 87 illustrations depicting military battles, landscapes, and religious icons, which are said to hint at several different religions, including Christianity, Hinduism, and Islam. Some have interpreted this to show that whichever culture was responsible for creating the text was one within which the three religions co-existed.

Attempts at translating the Codex have led to several theories. There is much variation in these theories, as scholars have not even been able to agree on the orientation of the text. Researcher Marius-Adrian Oancea has hypothesized that the text is the Old Hungarian alphabet (known as székely rovásírás or székely-magyar rovás), and that the contents revolve around topics from the New Testament.  This is called the Old Hungarian Alphabet hypothesis.

Mahesh Kumar Singh believes that the text is actually a variation of Brahmi script, from India, and that it should be read left to right, top to bottom. This is known as the Brahmi-Hindi hypothesis. Singh claimed to have transliterated the first 24 pages into Hindi, and then subsequently had those 24 pages translated from Hindi to Hungarian. According to this translation, the Codex begins as an apocryphal gospel, followed by a meditative prologue, and then leads into stories of Jesus during his infancy. A portion of Singh’s translation includes:

    he bhagwan log bahoot garib yahan bimar aur bhookhe hai / inko itni sakti aur himmat do taki ye apne karmo ko pura kar sake

Which translated into English, reads:

    Oh, my God! Here the people is very poor, ill and starving, therefore give them sufficient potency and power that they may satisfy their needs.

However, Singh’s translation was quickly criticized as lacking consistency, and most consider his translation to be a hoax.

Viorica Ena(chiuc has attempted a translation as well, leading to the conclusion that the script is intended to be read right to left, bottom to top, and that it is written in the Vulgar Latin dialect of Dacia. This is called the Daco-Romanian hypothesis. This translation concludes that the text originated in the 11th or 12th century, and that it belongs to the Blaki people, who fought against the Hungarians and Pechenegs. Some of his translations include:

    Deteti lis vivit neglivlu iti iti itia niteren titius suonares imi urast ucen

Which translated into English, reads:

    In great numbers, in the fierce battle, without fear go, go as a hero. Break ahead with great noise, to sweep away and defeat the Hungarian!

Ena(chiuc is also criticized as lacking consistency, and as a linguist and historian, her work is denounced for not being “scientific.”

Finally, Attila Nyíri, of Hungary has proposed that the pages, when turned upside down, are a Sumerian ligature. This is known as the Sumero-Hungarian hypothesis. His translation includes:

    Eljött az Istened. Száll az Úr. Ó. Vannak a szent angyalok. Azok. Ó.

Which translated into English, reads:

    Your God has come. The Lord flies. Oh. There are the holy angels. Them. Oh.

Like the others, Nyíri’s translation was criticized for lack of consistency. It is said that he took too many liberties with rearranging symbols, which in essence could lead to an infinite number of translations.

Methodical and computer-based attempts at translation have been conducted as well. However, none of these attempts have been successful in actually translating the text of the Codex. Some researchers, like Levente Zoltán Király, have come to widely accepted conclusions about the structure of the book, and the references it contains to the life of Jesus. While this has not led to a definitive conclusion as to the origins or meaning of the Codex, it has helped to debunk any theories that the book itself is a hoax.

It is possible that with further study, the Rohonc Codex will be more fully understood. For now, it remains a textual clue to some of the mysteries of humankind’s ancient past.

The Tracks of the Mokèlé-mbèmbé

The people around the Congo River Basin have a long oral history of their people and their lands. Among and intertwined with those stories are tales of a gigantic beast that lives in the swamps and rivers of the Congo. Generally it's a harmless beast, uninterested in eating people, and sticking to a type of liana that grows along the river. That isn't to say that it isn't dangerous; the tales say that the Mokèlé-mbèmbé will attack and sometimes kill people and hippos. Strangely, this area of the lowlands has an unusually low hippo population.

So the question arises: what exactly is the Mokèlé-mbèmbé? Simplest answer is that it is the Sasquatch of Africa. The name even means "one who stops the flow of rivers". There are crypozoologists in the world who would say that it/they are real living dinosaurs of the sauropod family still roaming the earth.

They are described as being bigger than a forest elephant with a long neck, a small snake-like or lizard-like head, which was decorated with a comb-like frill. They have a long, flexible tail, reddish-brown skin and four stubby, but powerful legs with clawed toes.

Not unlike Nessy of Lock Ness fame, Mokèlé-mbèmbé just aren't photogenic. There are some pictures that claim to have captured the image of such a creature, but as a rule they are too distant, too blurry, or too dark. Such obstacles are no deterrent to the determined. Expeditions to find the Mokèlé-mbèmbé have come home with photos of footprints and super-sized trails through the flora.

There is a long history of people encountering the Mokèlé-mbèmbé, including:

    * 1776 - French priest Abbé Lievain Bonaventure Proyart described the natural history of the Congo Basin of Africa. He wrote about a creature "which was not seen but which must have been monstrous: the marks of the claws were noted on the ground, and these formed a print about three feet in circumference.
    * 1909 - Naturalist Carl Hagenbeck recounted how two separate individuals: a German named Hans Schomburgh and an English hunter, told him about a "huge monster, half elephant, half dragon," which lived in the Congo swamps.
    * 1980 - An expedition mounted by engineer Herman Regusters and his wife Kia managed to make its way to Lake Tele, where they heard the growls and roars of an unknown creature. They also claimed to have photographed Mokèlé-mbèmbé in the lake, as well as watching it walk on land through the brush. According to Regusters, the creature they saw was 30-35 feet long.
    * 1983 - A Congolese expedition led by Marcellin Agnagna, a zoologist from the Brazzaville Zoo, arrived to Lake Tele. Agnagna claimed to have seen the beast some 275 meters out in the lake. The animal held its thin, reddish head - which had crocodile-looking, oval eyes and a thin nose - on a height of 90 cm and looked from side to side, almost as if it was watching him. According to Agnagna, the animal was a reptile, though not a crocodile, nor a python or a freshwater turtle.
    * 1987 - A piece of blurry video footage filmed by a Japanese film crew supposedly showing the creature in Lake Tele remains disputable evidence of the animal's existence. The film is indistinct and grainy, possibly just showing two men in a boat with one of them standing upright in the front of the vessel, as is common in Africa. This has been interpreted as a head and neck, but this interpretation of the videotape is purely speculative at best.
    * 2000 - Cameroon, Boumba River, Two Congolese security guards spotted a Mokèlé-mbèmbé in the water.

Though there is no conclusive evidence that the Mokèlé-mbèmbé are loitering in the lakes and swamps of the Congo, there are enough hints to make one wonder. Personally, I think it would be keen if such a monster were still out there. Improbable as it is that a beast of such dimension could elude being caught on film for so long, it isn't impossible. New species are still being cataloged in Africa—and other parts of the world—though none quite so big.

Mysterious Booms Rattle Oklahoma

A spate of mysterious booms that has been shaking central Oklahoma returned for a second day Friday, again rattling houses and frightening livestock.

Oklahoma Geological Survey research seismologist Austin Holland said a series of booms, much like a sonic boom, rattled the Norman area starting at 11:19 a.m. Friday. Numerous others had been reported Thursday in the same area at about the same time.

Friday's booms weren't "quite as frequent" as Thursday's, Holland said. "It's quite interesting."

The windows of Anthony Young's home in the town that's the outskirts of Oklahoma City rattled. "We thought some nut was out here, you know, with explosives," Young told KOCO-TV. "It sounded like thunder, you could feel the ground shake, but it was nothing like an earthquake"

Both Holland and National Weather Service meteorologist Matthew Day didn't have an explanation for the booms.

No earthquakes have been recorded in the area, Holland said, noting that "we would have seen them on our seismic stations in the area." And it's unlikely that it's due to a drilling process known as fracking, he said, because the booms were heard and felt over a wide area including Norman, Edmond and Shawnee.

Holland's best guess: It must have been something just above the surface of the earth or in the atmosphere.

Day, who's based in Norman, said a phenomenon known as cryoseisms also isn't likely. Cryoseisms, or "frost quakes," occur when water quickly freezes in soil or rock, then expands and cracks.

"There are some stories going around that's what it was, but based on the research we've done here, it doesn't appear what people heard is related to the cryoseism phenomena," Day told The Norman Transcript. "There's not enough moisture, and the temperatures are not cold enough. That happens in areas where you have a lot of water flowing through a lot of rock," Day said.

"We don't know what it was, we just know what it is not," according to Day.

Holland said the booms occurred on generally regular interval, initially occurring 40 to 60 seconds apart, then about 20 seconds apart.

"It's a mystery to us as well," he said.

It may be just a coincidence, but Texas has recently seen a strange increase of earthquake clusters that has rattled a Dallas suburb. Experts have turned to seismic data to help determine why.

The temblors in the Irving area included three quakes Wednesday morning, the U.S. Geological Survey reported.

Irving police had no reports of injuries or major damage in the 11 earthquakes that hit the area since Tuesday, but asked the public to stop calling 911 to report the shaking unless someone was hurt or there was another emergency.

The magnitudes ranged from 1.6 to 3.6, according to the USGS. Earthquakes of magnitude 2.5 to 3.0 are generally the smallest felt by humans, experts say.

Small earthquakes have become more common in Texas and Oklahoma. In October, Texas officials amended rules for disposal well operators amid concerns that high-pressure injections related to hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, can trigger earthquakes.

Carrieann Bedwell, a geophysicist with the USGS in Golden, Colorado, said scientists would be investigating.

"They will be looking at the parameters, magnitude, depth, location of each of the events," Bedwell said Wednesday. "Right now we're calling it a swarm, because we've had multitude events happen."

Bedwell described a swarm as earthquakes approximately in the same location in a matter of a few days or so.

"Earthquakes of this size, like 2s, 3s, can happen pretty much anywhere in the world at any time," Bedwell said.

The Irving area, with a population topping 250,000, has had more than 25 minor earthquakes since early September, according to Brian Stump, a seismologist with Southern Methodist University.

"SMU's seismology team is committed to helping North Texans understand more about the increasing number of earthquakes felt in our region over the last few years, most recently near the city of Irving," Stump said in a statement Tuesday.

SMU researchers installed a seismometer in Irving on Monday. Other devices were set up earlier near Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport and on the Dallas campus. In a statement, SMU said 15 more were deployed Wednesday in the Irving area, two more will be set up Thursday and five more on Friday.

Separately, the USGS reported a 3.5 magnitude earthquake Tuesday afternoon near Snyder, about 250 miles west of Irving.
