North Carolina man encounters blonde, six-fingered Bigfoot on property

He was 10 feet tall, with a long beard and yellowish-blond hair, Tim Peeler says.  And in the early-morning hours of June 5, Peeler told authorities, the creature – a Cleveland County version of Bigfoot – wandered onto Peeler’s property in the rural northwest part of the county.  The Cleveland County Sheriff’s Office has filed the case as a “suspicious person report” but says it is keeping an open mind.

Mysterious cloud appears  behind aircraft 
As turboprop and jet aircraft climb or descend under certain atmospheric conditions, they can inadvertently "seed" mid-level clouds, causing narrow bands of snow or rain to develop and fall to the ground, new research finds.  Through this seeding process, the aircraft leave behind odd-shaped holes or channels in the clouds that have long fascinated the public.  The key ingredient for developing these holes in the clouds: water droplets at subfreezing temperatures, below about 5 degrees Fahrenheit (-15 degrees Celsius).  As air is cooled behind aircraft propellers or over jet wings, the water droplets freeze and drop toward Earth.

It was made of plastic foam and fiberglass over a steel frame, which is all that remained Tuesday
