The advance in scientific knowledge meant that it was now possible to explain certain phenomena that were considered enigmatic or were attributed to supernatural causes. For instance, diseases were regarded as divine punishments thousands of years ago, but now doctors are able to understand them and associate them with a specific virus or bacteria. Satellites and rockets have also debunked myths about what outer space looked like and what could be found on the Moon. However, various mysterious events continue to puzzle experts because they can’t be explained using modern scientific theories, and some of these rarities have even been captured on film. From ghostly figures inside museums to never-before-seen animal species, get ready to be spooked out by some baffling sights.
Big Foot was seen in this West Virginia wood
The legend of Big Foot began in 1958 when journalist Andrew Genzoni from The Humboldt Times newspaper published a reader’s letter in which they claimed to have found mysteriously large footprints in northern California. What he thought would make “a good Sunday morning story” ended up sparking the curiosity of thousands of readers.
Not long after, this fascinating myth spread all over the country. Some people even said that they had discovered an ape-like figure running through the woods. The picture above was taken in Big Otter, West Virginia, and shows a strange sight standing in the shadow of a tree, which some believe to be Big Foot himself.
