Today, 3rd May, is International Paranormal Day, a day to honour and explore the mysteries of the supernatural world. Whether you are a believer or a sceptic, you might be curious about the phenomena that defy scientific explanation, such as ghosts, aliens, psychic abilities, and more.
In this blog post, we will take a look at some of the most famous and intriguing cases of paranormal activity around the world, and share some tips on how to experience them for yourself.
The Amityville Horror
One of the most notorious haunted houses in history is located in Amityville, New York. In 1974, Ronald DeFeo Jr. murdered his entire family in the house, claiming that he heard voices telling him to do it. A year later, the Lutz family moved into the house, but fled after 28 days, reporting terrifying events such as demonic apparitions, foul odours, cold spots, and levitating objects. The story inspired several books and movies, and sparked a debate over whether the house was really haunted or not.
If you want to visit the Amityville house, you might be disappointed to know that it has been renovated and its address has been changed to protect its privacy. However, you can still see it from a distance, or take a virtual tour online.
The Roswell Incident
Perhaps the most famous UFO incident in history occurred in Roswell, New Mexico, in 1947. According to some witnesses, a flying saucer crashed near a ranch, and the military recovered the debris and the bodies of alien beings. The official explanation was that it was a weather balloon, but many people believe that it was a cover-up for an extra-terrestrial encounter.
If you want to learn more about the Roswell incident, you can visit the International UFO Museum and Research Center in Roswell, where you can see exhibits, documents, and artifacts related to the case. You can also attend the annual UFO Festival in July, where you can enjoy lectures, concerts, parades, and costumes.
The Bermuda Triangle
The Bermuda Triangle is a region in the Atlantic Ocean where many ships and planes have mysteriously disappeared without a trace. Some of the theories behind these disappearances include magnetic anomalies, underwater volcanoes, wormholes, and even Atlantis.
If you want to explore the Bermuda Triangle, you can take a cruise or a flight that passes through it. However, don’t expect anything unusual to happen, as most experts agree that there is nothing paranormal about the area. In fact, according to some statistics, it is not even more dangerous than any other part of the ocean.
These are just some of the examples of paranormal phenomena that fascinate people around the world. On International Paranormal Day, why not take some time to research your own favorite topic or visit a local haunted spot? You might discover something new or have some fun along the way.
Happy International Paranormal Day!
