We can all agree that there are some strange things that happen in the world that we won’t ever fully understand. The world is likely going to stay a mystery, but I’m sure that the families and people involved in these five cases wish that they would be solved.
Ghost Ship: The Mary Celeste
On December 4, 1872, a British ship, the Mary Celeste was found adrift in the Atlantic, completely empty. It seaworthy and everything was where it was supposed to be except for a lifeboat that appeared to have been boarded in an orderly manner. Why? We won’t ever find out because those who were supposed to be onboard was never seen or heard from again.
The Voynich Manuscript
The Voynich Manuscript is a 250-page book written in a completely unknown manuscript. It has been carbon dated back to the 1400s and contains illustrations of unknown plants. It is believed that it was meant to be a medical text.
The Flannan Isles Lighthouse Disapperance
Three keeps, in 1900, of the Flannan Isles Lighthouse in Scotland disappeared under strange circumstances. Three men manned the lighthouse while a fourth rotated in from shore. When the fourth man came in on 12/26/1900, none of the three men were there. The only thing out of place was an overturned chair.
The Circleville Letters
The residents of Circleville, Ohio started receiving hate mail in 1976. The letters were postmarked from Columbus and were invasive and accusatory. They talked about an affair between the superintendent and the bus driver Mary Gillespie. Mary’s wife was sent a letter that said he would die if he didn’t put a stop to it. He died in 1977 in a strange accident, but the police ruled it an accident. Another letter was sent saying the police were covering up the accident. The letters continued throughout the 70s and 80s and even after they arrested who they believed were sending them, they continued to come.
The Tunguska Event
On June 30, 1908, 770 square miles in Siberia was flattened by what seemed like an explosion. The only problem is there were no witnesses. It has bee labeled an “impact event” but there has never been a crater found in the area.
