On October 21, 1978, 20-year-old Australian pilot Frederick Valentich rented a single engine Cessna 182L and left Melbourne, Australia, to begin a training flight. During the flight, Valentich told Melbourne air traffic control that an aircraft above him was accompanying him. But neither Frederick Valentich or his plane were seen again.

Texas Blue Dogs

Since 2004, a species of hairless, blue-skinned, blue-eyed, and hunch-backed dogs have been seen in Texas attacking and mutilating livestock and farm animals. The creatures have been caught on film and camera, and their bodies have been found. One Texas doctor even has one stuffed and mounted above her fireplace – but the classification of these creatures is still very much a matter of great debate among experts.
