Paranormal News of the Week: Sept. 9. 2016

It’s another wild and wacky week of paranormal news — most reported by foreign outlets about America. Not sure if there’s any meaning in that… 1) Did engineers solve the mystery of the spooky Paulding forest lights in Michigan? Locals say, “no way!” 2) A witch robs graves in New Orleans, gets caught. Must it be explained that grave robbing is illegal and wrong? Apparently, it must. 3) Is an Australian house haunted by Jack the Ripper? Since my prime suspect did not retire in Australia, I’m going to say “no.” But still, who’d want this ghost in your house? 4) Move over Extraterrestrial Highway. Is the entire 37th Parallel UFO central? 5) By now you’ve probably heard the sequel to Blair Witch is on its way. But who cares! There’s a spoof trailer! About the Author Kirsten Weiss writes genre-blending steampunk suspense, urban fantasy, and mystery, mixing her experiences and imagination to create a vivid world of magic and mayhem.

Entertainment, fashion, and UFOs! It’s the paranormal news of the week! 1)First up in fashion news, did all those sexy witches on TV and films inspire your desire for magic and mystery? I might have to plead guilty on this one. Nine glam outfits from ’90s witchy film and TV. 2) More proof that paranormal-themed entertainment is not dead. Fox has ordered a pilot for an X-Files-inspired comedy, Ghosted. 3) A skeptic explains why we love to believe in the paranormal.  4) And in more entertainment news, three films you’ve probably never heard of that were supposedly cursed. 5) A Southwest plane recently had to make a (thankfully successful) emergency landing in Florida after an engine blow-out. Some are saying a UFO was responsible.  In more UFO news, some odd videos were taken around the International Space Station. Could they be… UFOs?
