The first camera-equipped smartphone was released in 2000, yet a video has surfaced of an alleged time traveler with one at a 1995 Mike Tyson boxing match against Peter McNeeley. While some may say it's a Casio QV-10 or Logitech Fotoman, the lens and flash placement just do not match up. "I dunno if it's a time traveler or not, but no one can explain what camera it is; a QV-100 doesn't have a silver bit on the right, and this camera doesn't seem to have a black line under the lens," said one commentator.

Apollo 8, the second human spaceflight mission in the United States Apollo space program, was launched on December 21, 1968, and became the first manned spacecraft to leave Earth orbit, reach the Earth's Moon, orbit it and return safely to Earth. Secureteam10 recently came across a strange image from the mission that apparently shows a massive object, possibly a spacecraft. "This is basically the last in this film magazine taken during the Apollo 8 moon mission. As you can see in the photo, there is something massive that appears either over or on the moon. I went back to the Apollo Image Atlas and went through all of the previous frames before this and there was nothing out of the ordinary. In frame 2908 all of a sudden we see this massive triangular-shaped object sitting atop the moon," said the researcher. Continue reading for another moon anomaly and more information.

Sure, using the world's smallest cell phone daily isn't the most practical idea, but for those who require secrecy in their line of work, the Zanco Fly will definitely come in handy. Measuring in at just 71.8 mm in length and 23.5 mm in width, this micro phone does not have any apps, or even a camera, just basic call functionality. "The Zanco Fly phone, is apparently made by Zini Mobiles Ltd, a company established in the UK in 2013, but struck off and dissolved last summer. It was registered to a forwarding address with just one director, who still appears to be selling the phone through online trading site Alibaba (minimum order: 3,000), where Zini is listed as a British company whose purported total annual revenue exceeds $100 million.

It was diamond shaped and it seemed to be changing its shape, but I think that's due to it moving ever so closer to the ISS," said UFO researcher Scott Waring. Continue reading for another video about the dark side of the moon, and possible secret bases. Click here to read about a few bonus UFO incidents and pictures from the past.
