If Magneto from X-Men actually existed, seeing random metal objects levitate would be a common sight, but a new video from China has surfaced, showing what appears to be cars levitating in the air as one drove towards a busy intersection. The vehicles are seen being pulled upwards before one rolls onto its side in the city of Xingtai. The front of another vehicle is pulled upwards, while the back end of a car in another lane moves, at that same time. All three crash back down onto the road, with the first, landing on its side.

At first, this looks like some sort of other-worldly creature, but it's actually just the Black Dragonfish, which lurks at depth of 3,300-feet, where its body shimmers with light, disguising its shape from predators and prey. With long, jaggedy razor sharp teeth, and a wide-opening jaw, it can easily swallow prey that is more than half its size. It also has four rows of photophores - two on each side of its stomach - which emit blue light. Click here to view the first image in today's viral picture gallery.

Scientists have estimated that a human will have about 90-seconds to be recompressed, if exposed to the vacuum of space, after which death may be unavoidable. Unconsciousness is likely to occur within 14-seconds, primarily due to the much lower pressure outside the body causing rapid de-oxygenation of the blood. One incident that occurred in 1966, involved NASA test subject Jim LeBlanc who lost consciousness after approximately 15-seconds of being accidentally depressurized in a ground-based depressurization chamber. Less severe effects include the formation of nitrogen gas bubbles and consequent interference with organ function (decompression sickness), which is less severe in space than in diving.

A passenger aboard an American Airlines flight from San Jose, California to Houston, Texas, managed to snap a series of photographs of a giant metallic disc in the Nevada desert. There was a 'blinding bright light' in the desert below near Luning and Gabbs that caught his eye at first. "I saw a large silver disc that appeared to be in the middle of the desert. This disc was shooting orb like lights into the air. The disc itself had multiple lights that were blinding to the eyes. I pulled out my phone and took pictures until my phone died," said the passenger. Continue reading for a video titled "Top CIA Secrets of Area 51: Real Truth Behind".
People have mistaken this creature for a real-life Pokemon, but in reality, it's just the Venezuelan Poodle Moth, first discovered in 2009 by zoologist Arthur Anker, and the rest is internet history. Its bizarre-looking antenna as well as physical characteristics have caused researchers to believe that it's actually a new species of moth, belonging to the lepidopteran genus Artace. Physical characteristics include white fur, bulging black eyes and a brown antenna. Continue reading for two more videos and additional images.
Here's a fascinating look at the Ghost Shark family, which consists of the dark ghost shark (Hydrolagus novaezealandiae) and the pale ghost shark (Hydrolagus bemisi). Both of these are shortnose chimaera of the family Chimaeridae, found on the continental shelf around the South Island of New Zealand in depths from 30m to 850m. This shark species are taken almost exclusively as a by-catch of other target trawl fisheries. Continue reading for another video and more information.
A bizarre event took place in Los Angeles, CA yesterday, as the ground began moving sideways in slow-motion, and rising 15-feet in a mere 4-hours. The roads in some areas were destroyed, which knocked down utility poles and wrecked infrastructure to boot. The two mile section of Vasquez Canyon Road had to be closed until further notice because of the strange phenomenon. Click here to view more pictures of the destruction. Continue reading for an aerial drone video of the area, broken roads and all.
Traversing across snow and river is tough enough, but imagine having to use a rickety bridge to along the way. Meet the Kuandinsky Bridge, in Russia's Trans-Baikal Region. Spanning 570 meters over the Vitim River, this treacherous crossing is just over two meters wide and has absolutely no railing or other safety features to keep cars or people from falling into the frozen waters. Its decaying metallic structure has not been well maintained, but rather simply covered with old wooden railway sleepers that become slippery when frozen over with ice and snow.

The Black Knight Satellite is a popular topic among conspiracy theorists, and now, there's a full short film about the mysterious object supposedly orbiting Earth. Produced by Pepsi, "Black Knight Decoded" tells the story of a father (David Oyelowo), his daughter (Layla Crawford) and his co-conspirator (Pinto) on their quest to decode radio signals transmitted from the mysterious satellite. Their efforts to respond was thwarted by the government, and so the group relies on support from communities around the world to come together to communicate universal messages of hope, unity and peace. Most of the space footage was captured by UrtheCast's ultra high-definition cameras aboard the International Space Station. Continue reading for a video about the real Black Knight Satellite.
Not a day passes without someone, researcher or an amateur astronomer, spotting something in NASA's archives. This time, it's an object that is flying too close to the sun to be human technology, thus making it an "alien spaceship," or so they'd like to believe. The images were captured by the space agency's specialist telescopic cameras used to monitor solar activity earlier this month. Continue reading for a video of more sun anomalies and information.
