A Bird's Eye View of Bigfoot

Mounted to a 45-foot-long RC airship called the Aurora Mk II is a camera that William Barnes, founder of Project Falcon, hopes will finally capture evidence of the elusive sasquatch. Well...BETTER evidence.

The gyroscopically-stabilized camera can shoot in high definition, infrared and thermal images. Barnes hopes its silent movements overhead will be less likely to spook potential targets.

A typical surveillance blimp. This one
working in the Manchester, UK area.
I seem to remember a television program headed up by Bigfoot researcher Autumn Williams some years back. She, too, employed a camera-mounted airship made by Floatograph. I don't recall that being very successful.

Halloween Accessories



















Bought these two items from the Disney store. While they make great accessories for Halloween, their longevity outside the holiday is undeniable.

Vintage Horror Comics Are Great!
