On this edition of The Gralien Report, why were FBI agents recently spotted in the forest near Pittsburg, and what did their presence have to do with a legend about lost Civil War gold? Also, a report out of Anatolia, Turkey tells of how concrete was recently poured over parts of the famous Gobekli Tepe archaeological site… and many aren’t pleased about it. Also, what was the mysterious object seen over Phoenix, Arizona recently, and why wasn’t it able to be detected on radar?
Then in hour two, continuing the theme of strange things seen in our skies, we take a look at the secret history of aviation, as we explore stories of technologies that might have been in development before the end of the 1800s in America. Many similar attempts at building airships actually have been documented, and chronicle a push toward flying vehicles on the west coast throughout the late 1800s that didn’t become known until broad access to newspapers and historical documentation in the post-internet era. However, reports of a flying machine seen during the winter of 1896 and 1897 continue to perplex us, and for some may indicate that a technology did successfully produce a flying machine that has been left out of the history books. We explore this idea, and more, on this week’s edition of The Gralien Report.
