A team of investigators in Russia have found more than a dozen stone discs in the Volgograd region of Russia. The team claims that the discs contain tungsten, a high density metal that has applications in military technology. The nature of the discs remain a mystery.
Russian news site Bloknot Volgograd reports that the finding was made by the Russian UFOlogy and Crytozoology group Kosmopoisk, led by Vadim Chernobrov, during excavations in the Zhirnovsky district of the Volgograd region. The UFO hunters were investigating in the region due its fame for the occurrence of ‘mystical phenomena’.
While the team had previously discovered more than a dozen disc-shaped stones, they recenly found a particularly large one.
“We already found a dozen of these discs of not more than one meter in diameter and in Kuzbass a disc of about two meters in diameter,” Chernobrov told Bloknot Volgograd, adding that the newest one is unique because it is larger than all the others.
“The shape..., which resembles the popular image of a flying saucer, has let the imagination of the conspiracy theorists fly,” reports International Business Times . “Scott Waring of UFO Sightings Daily thinks this is proof that aliens exist and claims the disc is made of tungsten. Tungsten is also known as wolfram, and is used in special military technology.”

The UFO investigation team has made lavish claims about the stone discs, stating that they could be about a million years old, and maintaining that they are most probably military drones that were damaged in an attack on Mars before falling to Earth.
Fortunately, scientists at the Zhirnovsky museum are taking a more rational approach and are studying the largest stone disc to determine its age and material. Some skeptics also believe that the rocks were not even man-made but are simply the result of ordinary rocks shaped by erosion.
Earlier this year, another disc-shaped stone object was discovered in Russia by a coal mining company, this time in Siberia’s Kuznetsk Basin. The strange relic was found 40 meters underground, which suggests it is quite old. Archaeologists who examined the stone disc, which is perfectly circular with a diameter of 1.2 meters, stated that it was man-made.

Bismuth is one of the prettiest crystals on our planet and is known for its complex geometric hopper form and is rainbow colored. Bismuth is 86% as dense as lead and is a brittle metal and has been known since ancient times. It is often confused with lead and tin however it is its own element. These crystals have even been used for healing purposes with many experts in crystal healing stating that Bismuth is a stone of "transformation and change, helping to adapt to change with calm assurance." These stunning crystals are found in Australia, Bolivia and China with a beautiful spectrum of colors that you rarely see in other popular crystals.
Larger than Baalbek: Huge Megaliths found in Russia defy explanation

Researchers state that from the scale depicted by the human figures, these megaliths are much larger (as much as 2 to 3 times larger) than the largest known megaliths in the world. Preliminary studies suggest that there are blocks of stone at Gornaya Shoria which weigh around three to four thousand tons .
The Megaliths of Baalbek are considered by mainstream scholars as some of the most impressive on planet Earth. However, there are numerous other sites that just as Baalbek, are beyond fascinating and completely defy our understanding of ancient civilizations and their capabilities in the distant past.
Update: In 2014, enormous megaliths were found near the two-thousand-year-old temple to Jupiter in Baalbek, Lebanon. One of these megaliths weighs 1650 tons and is 64 feet long. It is now considered the largest megalithic block carved by human hands in the world. On the other hand, the megaliths at Gornaya Shoria could possibly have been created by natural geological processes, according to some Russian scientists.
Baalbek is impressive, it is the ultimate evidence of sophisticated ancient cultures that mastered engineering and architecture, yet it remains a profound mystery in the eyes or mainstream scholars. Mainstream archaeology has different points of view when it comes to the exact age of the site. According to conventional archaeologists, it was a Phoenician sanctuary dedicated to the god Baal, it was a Greek City called Heliopolis (City of the Sun) and since the time of Emperor Augustus, it was a Roman colony. The truth is, the exact age remains a mystery, but some researchers consider this ancient megalithic site as being at least 12.000 years old but could possibly be over 20,000 years old.
The great platform upon which the temple of Baalbek was built is majestic, but today only a few columns remain standing. It is a construction that modern archaeologists and engineers cannot explain given the history and age that have been “officially” accepted. Some believe that history has got it all wrong when it comes to Baalbek.
However, the megaliths located in Russia are even more impressive than Baalbek and have caused confusion among researchers ever since their discovery.
We are talking about the megalithic site of Gornaya Shoria, located deep in the Siberian Mountains, where during one of the expeditions to the site, compasses of the geologists behaved very strangely and for some unknown reason their arrows were deviating from the megaliths. (source)
This impressive megalithic site is one of the largest sites ever discovered in Russia. Located on Mount Shoria in southern Siberia, the site contains some of the largest blocks of stone with flat surfaces, right angles, and sharp corners resembling cyclopean masonry ever discovered. The giant megaliths were found and photographed for the first time by Georgy Sidorov who explored the area for the first time in 2013. Ever since its discovery, this megalithic site has caused great debate among researchers and archaeologists who cannot agree whether or not the mysterious stones with flat surfaces, right angles, and sharp corners are man-made structures or not.
Preliminary studies suggest that there are blocks of tone which weigh around three to four thousand tons. What makes this site, even more, interesting is the fact that this extremely heavy blocks of stone have been stacked up to forty meters in height.
Without a doubt, the origin, purpose, and construction methods used into construction process of this ancient site remain a mystery, but their beauty, precision, and importance will remain a subject of debate in the years to come.
Very interesting comments regarding the megalithic site were made by archaeologist John Jensen:
The super megaliths were found and photographed for the first time by Georgy Sidorov on a recent expedition to the Southern Siberian mountains.
There are no measurements given, but from the scale depicted by the human figures, these megaliths are much larger (as much as 2 to 3 times larger) than the largest known megaliths in the world. (Example: The Pregnant Woman Stone of Baalbek, Lebanon weighs in at approximately 1,260 tons). Some of these megaliths could easily weigh upwards of 3,000 to 4,000 tons.
There is little commentary on Valery’s site, so the images are displayed here without many comments, other than my own limited observations.”
So what are the enigmatic stones found at Gornaya Shoria? Are these structures the result of ancient man’s ingenious construction methods? Or are they the result of mother nature’s incredible constructions.
Cyclopean masonry or not, the enigmatic megalithic blocks of stone of Gornaya Shoria have challenged mainstream archaeologists and researchers once again, forcing them into a debate that seeks to uncover the truth behind numerous similar ancient sites found around the globe.
Here are some images of the megalithic site of Gornaya Shoria:
20 The Bosnian Sphere's Origin Is Debatable
When the Bosnian Sphere was found in a forest near the Bosnian town of Zavidovici, there was some confusion about how it came to exist. Some believed this ball, which according to The Guardian has a radius of between four and five feet, was a natural formation, while others felt it belonged to a lost civilization.
Bosnian archaeologist Semir Osmanagic felt it was the latter, and that the ball was created by an advanced civilization that existed more than 1,500 years ago, The Guardian reports. The ball is described as being brown and red in color, which suggests a high iron content, and others believe that this means the sphere is a naturally formed concentration.

5. Venetian Vampires
In 2006 the skeletal remains of a woman from the 16th century with a brick stuffed in her jaw were discovered in Venice.
Historians first thought the remains belonged to an accused vampire, but now believe the woman could have been deemed a witch.
6. Mount Owen Claw
A severed limb from an extinct bird known as the moa.
Archaeologists discovered the limb in an ancient cave in New Zealand.
Its flesh and muscles were still intact despite the species disappearing thousands of years ago.
7. Baby Disposal
The remains of nearly 100 babies were discovered in an ancient bathhouse in Ashkelon, Israel.
Babies were not considered valuable back in ancient Roman times and it&rsquos widely considered the infants could have belonged to prostitutes.

An ancient wall located in Cusco, Peru, the Sacsaywaman dates back to 1100, with construction continuing for over 100 years.
It consists of several types of rock and was built in a mysterious zigzag design.
A new section of the wall was discovered in 2008.
9. Diquis Spheres
The stone spheres of Costa Rica are a collection of over 300 solid globes, ranging in size.
Some weigh up to 15 tonnes, with both their origin and purpose remaining a mystery.
10. Gobekli Tepe
Located in Turkey, the Gobekli Tepe is considered the oldest archaeological site in the world.
The site was first surveyed in 1963 but wasn&rsquot excavated again until 1994 when large T-shaped pillars were discovered.
It&rsquos believed the area was banned over 10,000 years ago and pre-dates Stonehenge by some 6,000 years.
7. Caravaggio’s “Nativity with St. Francis and St. Lawrence”
Ever since its theft in a 1969 robbery, Caravaggio’s nativity scene has been regarded as one of the art world’s most notorious stolen paintings. The masterwork has not been seen since it was lifted from a chapel in Palermo, Italy, though evidence indicates the Sicilian Mafia may have played a role in the heist. In 1996, a mob informant testified that he and several other men had stolen the painting for a private buyer, only to accidentally destroy it while cutting the canvas from its frame. More than a decade later, another former mafioso claimed the painting had been hidden in a barn for safekeeping, but was irreparably damaged by rats and hogs before being burned. The fate of the nativity ultimately remains a mystery, but if it still exists, the painting would now be worth as much as $20 million.

U.S. Alien-Hunters Identify 1000 Potential Watching Stations
A scientific team of American alien hunters claims that if advanced life does indeed exist on any one of a 1,000 different star systems, they could be watching Earth right now! American alien hunters are probably the world’s most active and advanced when it comes to this kind of hunting: they have the best equipment and are likely also the best funded. This team’s latest findings suggest new possibilities in the hunt for alien life . . .
American Alien Hunters Say: Someone’s Watching
Looking for exoplanets orbiting remote stars requires American alien hunters and astronomers to fix their telescopes on distant suns and monitor them for dimming, which occurs when a planet passes between the star and the telescope. By analyzing how the light changes as stars dim, scientists are able to determine the chemicals present in the passing planet’s atmosphere. But while this method is revealing, it’s also exceptionally restricted as it only works for planets orbiting between Earth and the observed star.
According to a new study published in the journal Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society “1,004 star systems are in a direct line of sight to our planet,” and all of them are all close enough to Earth that if any were, or are, inhabited by an advanced lifeform, “they could detect us.”
Are We Being Watched By Aliens Right Now?
Dr Lisa Kaltenegger, a Cornell University astronomer, published a new paper asking some fascinating questions relating to possible alien life from the perspective of alien hunters. For example, which nearby stars are situated appropriately for any inhabitants to watch Earth cross (transit) the sun and in those star systems, could those life forms detect signs indicating us inhabiting the Earth’s surface? The results of Dr Kaltenegger’s study suggest a great number of nearby stars systems, if inhabited, might have their scientific equipment trained on us right now. And this has also created a lot of excitement among alien hunters.

More than a dozen mysterious carved discs found near Volgograd, Russia
Humans are bound to a location in spacetime in which we have developed five primary senses tuned for survival on planet Earth. When it comes to monitoring microscopic levels of universal existence, and possible life at vast distances in deep space, we build innovative tools to do these jobs. To assist in this new study the scientists used the Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite ( TESS), a scientific weapon on the frontline of space exploration. The scientists said this incredibly advanced satellite would see Earth as “a biosphere in the atmosphere of our Pale Blue Dot.”
Where Could Some Of These Alien Astronomers Be Hiding?
The new alien hunters’ journal study looked at star systems within a distance of 326 light-years from Earth and discovered “1,004” are located in a position from which alien astronomers could see our planet. Furthermore, the researchers stated that “508 have viewing angles that would give them at least 10 hours of observational data every time Earth passed between that location and the Sun.” Based on the study these are the ideal conditions for spotting our little blue-green planet and the signs of life in its atmosphere.
An estimated 5% of these 1,004 stars capable of watching Earth orbiting the Sun are too young for intelligent life to have evolved. However, the research team of alien hunters say the other 95% belong to star categories that can “sustain life for billions of years,” which under the correct conditions is long enough for intelligent life to have evolved.
The Next Steps In The Scientific Quest To Find Alien Life
Most of the 1,004 stars are located at the maximum 326 light-year distance, but the closest one orbiting a sun is only 28 light-years distant from Earth. The alien hunters research team have identified several more that are on a trajectory to enter the Earth’s observation zone by 2044. To advance their research the scientific team of American alien hunters are now planning a reanalysis of the 1,004 stars identified in their paper with SETI’ s Breakthrough Listening program. This program is capable of detecting communications from advanced alien civilizations. SETI scientists look for both microscopic and macroscopic life in outer space with space rovers, orbiters, field expeditions, and radio telescopes.
According to the SETI website, there are “one hundred billion” potentially habitable planets just in our galaxy, and many of the moons, like those orbiting Mars, Jupiter and Saturn , have environments that could also have supported biological life. If you think this is all highly speculative, you would be wrong. This is because with so many potentially life-supporting planets the SETI website says, “it ’s reasonable to imagine that at least some are populated by intelligent beings.” This is good news indeed for all alien hunters!
