    Near Calma are ancient geoglyphs. Archeologists and anthropologists at Universidad Católica del Norte and San Pedro de Atacama’s Padre le Paige Museum have discovered mammoth, millennia-old geoglyphsin the harsh desert landscape near Calama in Chile’s far north. Only fully visible from above, like Peru’s celebrated Nazca Lines, these geoglyphs are the first of their kind found in Chile.

    Giant Stone Balls - Workmen hacking their way through the dense jungle of Costa Rica to clear an area for banana plantations in the 1930s stumbled upon some incredible objects: dozens of stone balls, many of which were perfectly spherical. They varied in size from as small as a tennis ball to an astonishing 8 feet in diameter and weighing 16 tons! Clearly man-made, it is unknown who made them, for what purpose and, most puzzling, how they achieved such spherical precision.

    The July 1889 a find in Nampa, Idaho, of a small human figure during a well-drilling operation caused intense scientific interest last century. Unmistakably made by human hands, it was found at a depth (320’) which would place its age far before the arrival of man in this part of the world. The find has never been challenged except to say that it was impossible.

    South African miners have found hundreds of these metallic spheres, which have three parallel grooves running around their equator. They appear to be man-made, but they were found in a layer of mineral deposit thought to be 2.8 billion years old.

    On December 9, 2009, a strange phenomenon was witnessed over Russia, and photographed in northern Norway and Sweden. The event began when a blue light soared up from behind a mountain in the north end of Russia. The light stopped in mid-air, and then began to move in circles. Within seconds a giant spiral had covered the entire sky. Once expanded, a green-blue beam of light shot out from the center of the object, lasting for ten to twelve minutes before disappearing completely.

    The cathedral in the Spanish city of Salamanca was constructed in 1102, and is therefore one of the oldest such constructions in the world. It features magnificent stone carvings on all its walls, but one of them is a bit more special than the others. It bears the depiction of what appears to be a fully dressed astronaut in a space suit, complete with details such as the sole of his shoes. Nobody knows how he got there, or what a 20th century astronaut is doing on the walls of a 12th c. church.

    Ollantaytambo, Peru. Parts of this ancient city date back at least 12,000 years. Archeologists are still perplexed as to how some of the earliest humans were able to move massive blocks of granite (some weighing 50 tons) without the use of modern machinery. No tools have been unearthed in the area and the rocks appear to be “fused” together.

    Several human skulls with horns protruding from them were discovered in a burial mound at Sayre, Bradford County, Pennsylvania, in the 1880's. With the exception of the bony projections located about two inches above the eyebrows, the men whom these skeletons belonged to were anatomically normal, although at seven feet tall they were considered to be giants. Burial was believed to have been in the neighborhood of 1200 AD.

    Bosnian Pyramid - This was discovered in 2005 but excavation to unearth it didn't begin until years later. Still a long way to go in uncovering, but it's been found that tunnels built under it go for tens of miles. This is located in the town of Visoko and the locals had always thought it was just a hill. It is believed that this pyramid is much larger than the Giza Pyramid and recent carbon dating shows the possible age to be more than 20,000 years.
