UFO by Golden Gate Bridge

UFO flies through the Golden Gate, a helicopter or?

I discover what appears to be an anomalous silver disc UFO craft flying through Golden Gate Bridge on the documentary film, The Bridge (2006), directed by Eric Steel. I sent a tweet to the director saying he should check it out. What do you think? Is it really an optical illusion or it is a real UFO?!

The film director responded to me and says he think it could be a helicopter. What do you think?

Some FAA flight rules to consider:

According to 91.119
Except for takeoff or landing, no person may operate an aircraft below the following altitudes;
a. Anywhere. An altitude allowing, if power unit fails, an emergency landing without undue hazard to persons or property on the ground.
c. Over other than congested areas. An altitude of 500′ feet above the surface, except over open water or sparsely populated areas. In those areas the aircraft may not be operated closer than 500′ to any person, vessel, vehicle, or structure.

The documentary delves into the morbid subject of suicide and portrays some people jumping to their deaths. I understand Netflix removed the film due to the country of New Zealand having a high rate of youth suicide and this would only encourage more. A hard hitting look why some end their lives.

The object seems to do the impossible and impacts the bridge though could be some kind of optical illusion. Check it out. I have captured some of these anomalous craft doing the impossible. See in previous posts.

Stalked by the Skinwalker

Followed by various phenomena from the UFO Ranch
Youtube video

As a paranormal investigator, I show footage, & recount my own encounters by Skinwalker Ranch etc.; being stalked & followed across the world! I share a personal ufo encounter outside Nelson, Nevada in early 2013 (along with footage). See the piggyback or stalker affect which reporter, George Knapp, has mentioned in his programs. It seem I has been followed across the world by the Bigfoot beings that seem to be associated with UFOs. Watch UFO footage. Hear strange Bigfoot like interactions in the wild captured on cameras & professional microphones by anomalous beings who call my name! You will see/hear why I’m a haunted man!

Hear interviews from two New Zealand Bigfoot witnesses including a DOC (Department of Conservation) worker who saw one on the job.

Humanoids talk of taking me

Various ‘recorded’ strange voices from the wild & ITC bare the same message

I play samples from ongoing I.T.C. research to connect with other realms in an effort to get intel on the phenomena surrounding UFOs, Bigfoot & the paranormal. Humanoids talk of taking me via electronics & in the wild (there is bleed through of info). These recordings support the idea that some people that go missing (411) are taken by extra terrestrials.

Hear the shocking, strange voices and movement in the wild areas!

Some people watch my videos claim “pareidolia” which is a visual illusion that affect all people. Our brains look for patterns, ie. that cloud looks like Jesus or the burnt toast with a likeness to a real object. Though it might be explainable in some cases, complex speech and repeated sentences are far more advanced than a likeness in the clouds or butter. There is too some electronic voice phenomena that is questionable and not clear. As some call my name including first name and last name. One sample I replay from an ITC session around 2017 that says, “Have Faith Marc Coppell” in response to my comment. There are only about 5 people on this earth with my same first and last name (that I have been able to look up).

On the flip side people can have a personal bias and completely refute anything that portrays active intelligence. They totally discount the millions of sightings/accounts of ghosts, near death experiences, out of body experiences, esp, remote viewing etc. Many critics of ITC and the like have not done any experimenting themselves or even gone on investigations into hauntings etc. While it is understandable some people will have a hard time with what others see or experience if they have not had that themselves. Though this is a passive opinion & could be changed by a future event/s.

I have not been able to debunk what has happened or is happening to me. As the case with some former skeptics I have talked with. Some are so troubled by the event that they experience fear and a form of PTSD as a result. We could ask too if some people are having illusions why are adults not reporting seeing Santa Claus or the tooth fairy? I mean this is drilled into us as kids at least in the western culture. Though do any of these adults see any of these as a result of childhood conditioning?


I am quite open to talking to people who have questions or searching for answers. I really don’t spend much time on people who are totally closed, it is a waste of my precious time and theirs. Science previously has done many experiences into quantum physics and anomaly research. There are multiple realms around us. Could some of this be caused by some form P.K. or psycho kinesis in some instances? Is what I am doing really confirmation bias?

The ramifications are immense if what I’m writing about is real.

Making Contact with the etherial

Here I discuss my research, experiences along with an interesting comment from Dr. Colm Kelleher

Watch my latest podcast and hear what other viewers say about their encounters including local Bigfoot phenomena. Taking the ectoplasmic bull by the horns. I am not the only man who has experienced Bigfoot-like phenomena here in New Zealand. I also talk about my experiences back in 2013 by Skinwalker Ranch and being stalked across the world. I discuss also ITC or instrumental trans-communication research.

Do you believe in UFO’s or have you seen one? Included in the podcast are some screen shots from some of my captures over recent years, and some of them are in wild areas where Bigfoot phenomena takes place! I discuss an interesting post made by Dr Colm Kelleher, former Skinwalker Ranch research scientist. Think the paranormal can’t get through to a scientist? Think again. Shake off the dust from your brain.

We are surrounded by other dimensions and many of those beings are acutely aware of us! Doing instrumental trans-communication has shown me time and time again, that privacy is just an illusion. From ET’s, spirit beings (that include some ET’s) including Bigfoot beings can peek in on us. Even touch us etc. From ITC, electronic voice phenomena and anomalous wild voices etc. we can learn that there is a lot more to life. Are we afraid to open the door incase a demon enters?!

Has science shown us that there are other dimensions beyond a theoretical idea? Is CETI the only hope for humanity’s quest to find intelligent life elsewhere? Astronomical distances and our current ‘known’ limited technology makes this seem impossible. Though approaching the subject from a different angle, as in ETs are already here and aware of us. Though they don’t want to become our experiments and for good reason.

Think ghosts are rubbish!? I talk of spirit attack and doing clearings when I lived in Las Vegas. Working with a talented psychic medium who did not want attention.

Mach 1+ UFO NZ, defies explanation!

UFO over Huia Auckland, NZ travels mach one!

600% zoomed video still of unknown object
Youtube video link of footage, also slowed down and magnified to show flight characteristics

Since uploading the video examination footage yesterday of the Huia UFO captured on my Spark drone back in May of 2020, it has had thousands of views. This video is a response to the critics that insist that it MUST be a flying bug or bird. Since I do have a paranormal investigation, photographic & video pro background I had to take this chance to use my skills to review the flight pattern etc.
Why it is not a bird, & I might as well say insect too in the same breath? The challenge is the footage is shot in FHD shooting at 29.97 fps. Anything moving at distance, at high speed, in the background becomes pixelated & blurred upon digital inspection. Ideally the camera would be 8k and shooting at 1000 fps (frames per second) for more info. Such platforms become very expensive particularly on drones. I have been wanting a thermal ‘heat revealing’ range finder for my research efforts.


In the video I zoom in using Adobe Premiere Pro some 600% to show the lack of wing movement at all during the 5 second anomalous appearance. Some argue that the object is much closer to the drone lens and explains the speed aspect. In the video I zoom into to show the start of the visual flight path which is over the background mountain making a ‘bee-line’ for the beach. Observe birds as they come in from a high angle of flight, in-to-land like-a-plane, must take countermeasures to slow their speed to avoid making a hard landing thus getting injured or dying. This object makes no observable attempts to slow down as it nears the ground below.

The object at 600% magnification, at the start of the observable flight path shows that indeed it is traveling up by the distance mountain as it goes through a shadowed area possibly trees. It starts off very small only a few pixels big at this point. At this distance, a bug would not show up—1.2 miles. Too small for an HD sensor.

In the video I show an example of what a seagull flying looks like on the same camera zoomed in. Even when it ‘the seagull’ becomes pixelated the wing movement is still obvious from the sample. On another HD camera, I show what a flying insect looks like slowed down. There is also the flying ‘rod’ phenomena that was discussed by videographers a decade or so back. Rod-like anomalies travel by the camera too fast for the sensor to pick up. These rod-like objects seemed to have fins on them. When captured though on high speed cameras many of these turn out to be moths or other flying insects. I have captured these on camera too.

To seek the truth, we have go in with both eyes, ears and a mind open to examine the item.

The estimated flight speed is the biggest indicator that whatever this is, is not explainable by being called a bird or insect. The speed indicates this is a manufactured object of exotic origin. Even drones don’t fly this fast. There was no ‘sonic boom’ at the time. Coasting over the background mountain, a distance of humbly at least 1.2 miles in some five seconds. It exhibits speeds of roughly 864 mph or 1400 km/h!

It exhibits speeds of roughly 864 mph or 1400 km/h!

According to Google Earth measurements
The ‘Gimbal UFO’, is a product of one of the most sophisticated tracking systems on US military aircraft. It was caught on camera by a US Navy F/A-18 Super Hornet using the Raytheon AN/ASQ-228 in 2015 from the nuclear aircraft carrier USS Theodore Roosevelt, off the eastern seaboard, near the Florida coast.

Above: Gimbal UFO video that was released by the Pentagon on December 16th, 2017. To The Stars Academy has released what it calls the ‘Five Observables‘ for UAP’s or Unidentified Aerial Phenomena or traditionally in recent decades known as UFO’s. Their website lists the following:

The five observables can be categorized as follows: 

  1. Sudden and instantaneous acceleration:  Objects moving in such a manner that they are capable of maneuvering suddenly, deliberately and sometimes in the opposite direction.  In some cases, these maneuvers involve a change in direction and acceleration that is well beyond the healthy limitations of any biological system, that we are aware of, to withstand.  The anticipated effects of these g-forces on material may even defy our current technological ability to manufacture.  
  2. Hypersonic velocities without signatures:  Objects that are traveling well above supersonic speeds and yet leave no obvious signature behind.  Specific signatures normally include acoustic, heat, and electromagnetic and are traditionally recognized as a sonic boom, vapor contrails, and atmospheric ionization.  Currently, even the world’s most advanced military and reconnaissance aircraft have detectible signatures.
  3. Low observability:  Regardless if the object is being viewed electro-optically, electromagnetically, or through the naked eye, the inability to gain a clear target picture remains elusive.  Descriptions by witnesses are often difficult to describe, while radar returns often come back nonsensical or even jammed.  Objects generally appear opaque and semi-metallic in nature, both on camera and live.  In many cases it is nearly impossible to actually see the object and instead reports often include what is seen “around” the object. 
  4. Trans-medium travel:  Objects that have the ability to travel easily in various environments and conditions seemingly without any change in performance capabilities.  Our current understanding of physics requires vehicles to be designed specifically according to their application.  For this reason, there are stark differences between those vehicles that orbit in space, fly in the atmosphere, and travel in the sea.  Objects that can travel in all three mediums using the same design and without compromising performance or degrading lift remains an enigma.   
  5. Positive lift:  Objects that are apparently resisting the natural effects of Earth’s gravity, yet without the normally associated aerodynamic means for lift and thrust.  These objects have no obvious signs of propulsion (engines, propellers, exhaust plumes, etc.) or flight surfaces (wings, rudders, ailerons, fins, etc.), but yet they are able to move in a very precise manner in our atmosphere despite not having any of those characteristics.

Going back to the Huia UFO footage shown at the beginning of this article, the object shows two of these observables: Hypersonic velocities without signatures and Positive lift. For the original video I put out on the Huia UFO follow this link.

New X-File—UFO, What is it!?

Position of UFO from Google Earth
UFO footage, what is it?
UFO starts around top of background mountain
Some say its a bird. Here is what a bird looks like flying on the same drone on an overcast day-Watch in HD

Hello subscribers, thanks for following my blog. Weird stuff happens to me quite regularly (in my research) and it’s even greater when caught on camera, video or audio so it can be studied and dissected for authenticity. Yesterday I was doing B-roll video for my documentary and caught something very strange. Not quite strange that it traveled in a straight line from a mountainous region to sea level. A distance of about 1.2 miles in some five seconds from a mountain top in the video background to virtual sea level. That works out close to 1,400 km/per hour. About four times the fastest a bird of prey can achieve dropping vertically down upon it’s lunch. So unless a new bird that is discovered, can travel supersonic speeds the bird hypothesis doesn’t fit in this case.

I have been getting comments that people can’t see the original flight path up in the high mountain area so I have called out a screen shot (above). Must view full screen, probably not on a cel phone. Hopefully people will see it then. It seemed pretty obvious on my 13″ mac screen and following the direct path back though it decreased in visual size retroactively. Whatever it is not huge. So fits the acronym U.F.O. Another supporting aspect is the lack of sonic boom. I have caught multiple craft traveling faster than this and they still are silent.

I appreciate a genuine search for the truth even if I am left with egg on my face if and when I am wrong.

To note following this capture I have caught other anomalous flying craft in the area. Along with strange voices in the remote bush area that I have recorded. Some call my name! See youtube channel for footage and commentary.

High strangeness follows me across the world! See article/video of what’s been happening!

OMG Moehau Man, New Zealand’s Bigfoot: Fact or Fantasy!?

Moehau Man, New Zealand’s Bigfoot: Fact or Fantasy!? Sightings of the ape-like being were sometimes attributed to an escape gorilla around the mid 20th century. If a gorilla, why are they witnessed around various wild parts of New Zealand’s north and south Island? Maori folklore speaks of these Bigfoot-like giants in mountains and wild areas! Read modern accounts here not found in news reports!

Moehau Man, New Zealand’s Bigfoot: Fact or Fantasy!? Are sightings of Moehau Man, really just an escaped gorilla? Or a real Bigfoot?!

Moehau Man, New Zealand’s Bigfoot: Fact or Fantasy!? Having grown up here in New Zealand, I never heard of the story of the Moehau Man. Though ask locals from the Coromandel region I am sure you will get a chuckle, maybe a blank stare or even an under-the-breath whispered report. It wasn’t until strange phenomena started taking place in a wild bush area, hard to get in and isolated from the general public that I started researching. There is even a children’s TV show called “ The Moe Show” that is centred around the legend.

The Moe Show, a kids program … “In the Coromandel, on top of Mt. Moehau,
lives a furry monster by the name of Moe!”

There have been a number of sightings reported to the media particularly during the mid 20th century onward. Today there are almost none reported! But that doesn’t necessarily mean there are no sightings just most are not willing to bare the jeering scorn from the public. New Zealand is high up on the list for workplace bullying. There is also a small town mentality here and anyone standing out with a bizarre tale could find themselves the target of gossip.

my own family threatened to disown me, if I continued my pursuit of this man beast!

Treading where fool’s dare, I continued my research into the mystery!

One of my own family even threatened to disown me, if I continued my pursuit of this man beast, and had to defend my interest via the courtroom! By some too that report having seen ghosts and UFO’s! One’s own tribe would banish my own existence for wanting answers.  

But how did such a scorn-worthy topic become a soul stirring battle for the truth? As the saying goes: “where there is smoke, there must be fire.” The smoke of the fire was fanned from oral traditions of Maori history as some of their elders warned of these manimal, giant man-like beings who bore a close association with the American Sasquatch. They gave them names such as: Moehau, Matau, Tuuhourangi, Maero etc. There are hundreds into thousands of various names for these man-like giants around the world. I was only too shocked to learn of by accident while exploring wild, historical, gold areas, of something bizarre taking place. To be honest I had been pretty spooked at the start and wondered if I would become a missing 411! After years of researching and exploring, sometimes at night, mostly alone I was never captured or eaten to my relief. My story here!

One shock to this study was anomalous ufo craft in some of these areas (caught on camera) & the voices in remote areas (some calling my name!). In recent months I have upgrading my audio recording gear. I have a paranormal investigator background and use that to study various phenomena. See my youtube channel for media evidence of what is transpiring!

Is there a Bigfoot UFO connection!? This is a video still of hyper-sonic ufo by Mt. Moehau
Holding a recent pro mic set-up for recording nature (shielded against RF and EMF noise). This set-up can pick up sounds 10 times the distance of a regular mic.

The Maori settled in New Zealand around 1100 AD. They reported encountering these fearsome behemoths in the wild, mountainous, bush regions. They warned early prospectors in the Coromandel gold fields not too explore the bush at night. They reported some of their people had been taken. They mention these beings had sharp talons and ‘ate’ people if someone strayed into the wrong area. My eyebrows arose when I read of familiar sign posts of encounters attributed to Bigfoot in the Americas (which Maori were unaware before the Europeans). Especially stone throwing and screams.

Moehau Man named after Mt. Moehau where it is said they inhabit. The tallest mountain in the region reaching a gusty 892m above sea level. Sacred to the Marutūahu peoples. Some of their revered dead were buried at the summit, including Tamatekapua, chief of the Te Arawa canoe. A place that is ‘tapu’ or sacred, off-limits to outsiders.  Also a place of the Patupaiarehe or fair-skinned fairy people which Archaeologist, Gary Cook, has written of.

It is suggested by some that reports of these gorilla like beings were sightings of an escaped gorilla. In 1924, a mascot gorilla escaped from a ship moored off Waiaro. But that doesn’t account for earlier reports and even accounts of finding giant footprints. Rex Gilroy, Australian Cryptozoologist in the 1990’s reported finding giant fossilized footprints at the Karangahake Gorge in the Coromandel Peninsular. Gorilla’s only live to around thirty-five to forty years old, so any sightings late in the 20th century would negate that and then there are sightings in other parts of the country.

Some of the following encounters I have received personally, some can be found online and some can’t be found elsewhere though I have only posted a few of these. A couple I have had video interviews with (most wont speak openly). I have gotten well over two dozen modern reports of sightings! The reports keep coming! I have omitted some old reports in favour of new sightings.

“Strange Hairy Creature Reported on the East Coast Believed by some to be a gorilla”

A newspaper rendition of the mysterious Moehau, New Zealand’s Bigfoot

Persistent reports from Coromandel Peninsula say that a strange hairy creature thought by some to be a gorilla lurks at the back of the Waiaro, in the wild bush country of the Moehau Range. When Dr. Roy Norman of Waikawau, and Mr. Douglas Taiwahana of North Auckland, were pig hunting in the area, they said they caught a fleeting glimpse of a hairy man or possible a gorilla running along a bush track. Mr. F. W. Wenzlick of Amadeo Bay, said tonight that about 30 years ago a ship was lying off Waiaro Bay which had a young gorilla as mascot. The animal left the ship and got ashore. Since then there have been repeated rumors of strange occurrences in the hills. Stories deal with night intrusions into camps, dogs bristling and snarling because of a strange presence and mysterious foot-falls in the bush. A hunter, Mr. H. Beazley has found a cave with evidence of a man or beast living under primitive conditions which contained bones of animals presumably eaten raw and collections of shells. It was possible but highly improbably that the “strange hairy being” believe to be lurking in the Moehau Ranges was a gorilla or in fact any species of the ape family, the director, R. W. Roach of the Auckland zoo said tonight. If the strange creature did exist it was more probably a member of the baboon family. He would regard the story as more feasible if someone had discovered footmarks or nest in the tree-tops very much larger than that made by any known bird. Mr. Roach completely discounted any suggestions that the cave that had been discovered by Beazley was likely to have been the home of the creature. All members of the monkey families lived in nests built in the tree tops although they spent most of their time on the ground, he said.

In 1970 campers in the Milford Sound (on the South Island) claim to have fled their camp after being threatened by a big, hairy man-like creature.


In 1971 a ranger in the Nelson Lakes National Park  finds a trail of giant man-like footprints in the snow which lead into a forest.

In 1972, in the Coromandel Range, pig hunters spot a 2 metre hair-covered creature in far-off scrub. Who then uncover large footprints at the location.

In 1976, three men climbed Mount Moehau and camped over night near the summit. Around 2am they were awoken to a strange ‘howl’ that cause them to flee the mountain. One mentioned being a skeptic and said they could not identify what creature made the sound. They are troubled by the encounter to this day.

In 2001,  An intermediate student saw something large and ape-like “…it was during intermediate school that we went on a camp in the Coromandel, I remember it was a four hour hike up to the d.o.c. (Department of Conservation) cabins we were staying in. It was night time and we were doing the rope trail through the bush, we had made it about half way around the rope trail when I saw a large lumbering figure moving along the ridge line, the camp lights were over the hill behind this creature. As it walked along the ridge line it stopped and turned to face me… at the time i assumed it was a teacher dressed up waiting to jump out and scare us.

We made our way along the rope trail and i was anticipating the teacher jumping out but we got to the end of the trail and no fright…

This thing had the same walk as the Patterson footage almost as if it had basket balls under its arms.

It seemed to be inquisitive and remained silent.

At that time i had never heard about the Moehau Man but later on in life when I heard about the moehau man and it being in or around the Coromandel area things seemed to make sense. What did i see?

I can only say i saw a large bi-pedal creature larger than a grown adult in the bush where the Moehau Man is reported to be.

I understand people struggle to believe my story, i have nothing to gain from it only ridicule but i believe i saw something that night.

If it was truly a savage being it could have easily hurt or killed us but it was just quietly watching and observing us.”

In 2018, an experienced hunter and a friend were camping an hour into remote bush in Russell State Forest when something bi-pedal approached their tent in the night, while they were resting and screamed out similar to a human. The hunter told me “This thing that screamed at us sounded out of this world. Even to this day we both wonder what it was. I’ve spent a lot of time in the bush but this things got me scratching my head a bit.”

In 2021, at Takaka, The Grove as it’s called; A husband and wife were hiking: “Went in for a walk and about quarter of the way up the track I really felt like somebody was watching me and I could hear these noises in the bush really weird noises and there was a real creepy feeling like I was seriously being watched it happened the whole time I was in there, and some parts of it really cold and there was one part where it was really hot in there was heaps and heaps of flies anyway I was thinking about the mohau man it just came to my mind when I heard this noise that sounded like a blooming gorilla it’s hard to explain what the noise was but I thought it was really strange and I just noticed it, it felt like somebody was following me around and you could hear branches breaking in things and then when I got back out to my camper van.

I didn’t want to say anything to my husband cos I thought he would think I was being silly and he went for a walk in there and I heard this massive branch breaking right near the camper huge it sound like a tree being broken actually and he was taking quite a while in there and when he came out he said to me it felt like something was in there watching me all through the place it was really spooky and I was really surprised to hear that from him so we had a conversation about it and I told him about the Moehau Man and how they could be Sasquatch in New Zealand and you know that I read a little bit about it but not too much but it made sense to me because years ago I was in the bush where I went to a clearing we’re all these branches and snapped in half and I didn’t put anything into it at that time…

I asked my husband what the noise was that he heard and he said to me he’s never heard anything like them; they weren’t human noises and they were all different sorts of noise is he could hear it right throughout the track like he was being followed as well”

In 2021, Coromandel (exact location not given)
“I’m still trying to make sense of what happened this morning, so bare with me as I will probably sound completely bonkers here. This morning I was deep in the bush in the Coromandel, middle of fucking nowhere, at least 2.5 hours into my trek.

The only people I saw were contractors cutting the bush back on the sides of the gravel road leading into this particular track.

No other cars parked in the dead end at the start of the track.

I have a habit of hunting rivers for crystals, stones and spending time next to the river deep in the bush away from everything and anything.

This particular walk I ventured about 10 meters off the track to explore the river. I was crouched down, completely silent sifting through stones.  Facing the river with my back to the track, which ran parallel with the river,  I felt the presence of someone, turning around I saw a black figure walking in the direction of the start of the track (keep in mind I’m 2.5 hours up the track) – I found this odd as there were no other vehicles at the start of the track, so where did this person come from as I know that four hours into this hike the track ends and there’s no other connecting tracks or loop? As they walked away I noticed them brush past a large fern branch, which swung rapidly as they went past it, similar to that old “hold the branch and let it go to hit ya mate in the face” trick.

I stood there for a good thirty seconds almost frozen and consumed with a charge of unknown energy. I thought fuck this I’m heading back to the track and getting away from whatever it was. I kept my eyes on the fern for some reason. When I got back to the track, the fern was at least 13ft above the track and I couldn’t reach and grab it (I’m 6″4 with a arm reach upwards of at least 9ft) which tells me that black figure, I saw walk past and body brushing past the fern, was over 12ft tall.

My instant reaction was to head the opposite direction to the “being”, which was deeper into the bush, but after five steps everything was telling me to get the fuck out of the bush. My guides, my soul, my higher self, my guardians, my intuition, my inner, and everything and anything was screaming at me to get the fuck out of there asap, I went into survival mode and conveniently had just found a quartz crystal in the shape of a perfect dagger.

It was a very adrenaline filled dash for the next two hours out of there, and I felt like something was tracking and watching me until the last 15 minutes near the end. At times I thought I wasn’t going to be leaving that bush alive (or at all) or I’d be having the scrap of my life with a 15ft Maero (Moehau).

The track was mud, complete mud and chaos after the recent storms, so I would of seen any other hikers boot prints leaving the track, there were none. What there were though were giant “Pig Type prints” (which I have photos of), minus the two rear prongs of a boar print; but these prints were larger than my hand and went for about 20 metres and dissapeared.

Still trying to make logic of it, I thought if I go fast enough I’ll catch up to the person and it will all make sense, almost running for two hours I saw nobody.

Driving back down the gravel road leaving, I asked the contractors who were sorting the road sides trees; if they had seen anyone drive or walk out… I was the only person who had passed them all day. The track and road are the only way in and out, by foot or vehicle.

I got home and done some research and found articles regarding Moehau Man or did I see a Maero? Part of me feels it was a multi-dimensional “something” due to the way I felt after sighting it and the way it tracked me without noise.

It’s been six hours later and I still feel “shock” and can vividly see the moment. I feel blessed to of witnessed this entity, obviously by accident, but I also feel extremely lucky to be able

I won’t be exposing the exact location because humans being humans will more than likely want to hunt, track, trace and do what humans do to anything of the unknown and hurt it for their own gain.

At first I thought of it as a person, but the more I thought about it, it was tall, dark, and has a huge “hunch” or curved top of their back, but moved smoothly. I saw it for all of three seconds max through the break in the trees between the river and the track. I can’t 100% confirm head shape or look. But I can 100% confirm it was impossible to be a human due to it size and no sign of anyone else entering or leaving the track I was on.”

Finding a strange correlation between ufo’s and Bigfoot

My Skinwalker Ranch ‘hitchhikers‘ & shocking encounters (in the years) following my night observations there were like an earthquake that ricocheted throughout my life. Multiple forms of the phenomena presented themselves on opposite ends of the world. I never had a bigfoot-like encounter until going to the outskirts of Skinwalker Ranch in 2013 (to my surprise & girlfriend) up on UFO hill in the middle-of-the-night (I was there for UFO’s mostly): A heavy rock was thrown by us from the darkness below along with a strange creature sound. At first I thought it was an explosion. That year in early January I had a close encounter with a metallic oblong, tic-tac shaped UFO in the Southern Nevada desert while prospecting. Two strange tall ‘individuals’ checked out my parked car in this remote desert area outside Nelson, Nevada (before living the area in a SUV). I made my way back up and down through the quartz crystal Mars-like landscape, hyperventilating & exhausted after trying to find the location of the silent craft that landed.

He visited the property, where he had a profound encounter with the unknown

George Knapp refers to Dr. James Lacatski from the D.I.A.
or Defence Intelligence Agency

After the shocking encounter, I decided to look for answers in ufology and make a trek to Skinwalker Ranch, the most highly funded scientific study on the paranormal etc. in history of the USA. I joined Las Vegas UFO hunters to go skywatching and learn of others’ sightings. In recent years, revelations have emerged that the US government funded a study into the goings on at the ranch, on UFO’s. The program was called A.A.W.S.A.P. or the Advanced Weapons System Application Program. Investigative Journalist, George Knapp, reveals in an interview with career intelligence analyst and rocket scientist named Dr. James Lacatski  (from the Defence Intelligence Agency or D.I.A.) that it was him, that met with then-owner of Skinwalker Ranch, Robert Bigelow. He “visited the property, where he had a profound encounter with the unknown”. https://www.mysterywire.com/ufo/skinwalkers-inside-the-pentagon/

I already had a background doing paranormal (also personal experiences growing up) investigating so searching for answers was second nature to me. My thirst for answers grew and so did my encounters, some of them even recorded! See some of the UFO’s and hear the strange voices calling me by name from the wilderness as I conduct my research. Finding a strange correlation between ufo’s and Bigfoot as I was capturing craft in historical Bigfoot areas on video. I feel like I am living in an on-going X files episode. In recent months the beings called me to the wild (via ITC electronic communications or instrumental trans-communication), where I have recorded them talking about taking me, some of the voices are very strange. There was a bit of fear on my part but I had not been harmed in-the-past, being in remote areas, where activity had been taking place, including being followed in areas restricted to the general public. They are well aware of what I am engaged in and I have recordings of them asking me to turn off my cameras (heard on the above video). I still managed to record separate audio of the interactions. Welcome to the rabbit hole, I am waiting for cognitive dissonance to manifest now in your mind!

Moehau Man seen today!

New Zealand wilderness is thick and hard to transverse. But not tough enough for Bigfoot.

Moehau Man is not dead!

A startled man contacted me tonight about a sighting of a Moehau Man (or NZ Bigfoot) today on the Coromandel Peninsula while out tramping (hiking). Name withheld.

I’m still trying to make sense of what happened this morning, so bare with me as I will probably sound completely bonkers here.

This morning I was deep in the bush in the Coromandal, middle of fucking nowhere, at least 2.5 hours into my trek. The only people I saw were contractors cutting the bush back on the sides of the gravel road leading into this particular track. No other cars parked in the dead end at the start of the track. I have a habit of hunting rivers for crystals, stones and spending time next to the river deep in the bush away from everything and anything.

This particular walk I ventured about 10 meters off the track to explore the river. I was crouched down, completely silent sifting through stones. Facing the river with my back to the track, which ran parallel with the river,  I felt the presence of someone, turning around I saw a black figure walking in the direction of the start of the track (keep in mind I’m 2.5 hours up the track) – I found this odd as there were no other vehicles at the start of the track, so where did this person come from as I know that four hours into this hike the track ends and there’s no other connecting tracks or loop? As they walked away I noticed them brush past a large fern branch, which swung rapidly as they went past it, similar to that old “hold the branch and let it go to hit ya mate in the face” trick. 

I stood there for a good thirty seconds almost frozen and consumed with a charge of unknown energy. I thought fuck this I’m heading back to the track and getting away from whatever it was. I kept my eyes on the fern for some reason. When I got back to the track, the fern was at least 13ft above the track and I couldn’t reach and grab it (I’m 6″4 with a arm reach upwards of at least 9ft) which tells me that black figure, I saw walk past and body brushing past the fern, was over 12ft tall. 

My instant reaction was to head the opposite direction to the “being”, which was deeper into the bush, but after five steps everything was telling me to get the fuck out of the bush. My guides, my soul, my higher self, my guardians, my intuition, my inner, and everything and anything was screaming at me to get the fuck out of there asap, I went into survival mode and conveniently had just found a Quarts Crystal in the shape of a perfect dagger.

It was a very adrenaline filled dash for the next two hours out of there, and I felt like something was tracking and watching me until the last 15 minutes near the end. At times I thought I wasn’t going to be leaving that bush alive (or at all) or I’d be having the scrap of my life with a 15ft Maero.

The track was mud, complete mud and chaos after the recent storms, so I would of seen any other hikers boot prints leaving the track, there were none. What there were though were giant “Pig Type prints” (which I have photos of), minus the two rear prongs of a boar print; but these prints were larger than my hand and went for about 20 metres and dissapeared. 

Still trying to make logic of it, I thought if I go fast enough I’ll catch up to the person and it will all make sense, almost running for two hours I saw nobody. 

Driving back down the gravel road leaving, I asked the contractors who were sorting the road sides trees; if they had seen anyone drive or walk out… I was the only person who had passed them all day. The track and road are the only way in and out, by foot or vehicle. 

I got home and done some research and found articles regarding Moehau Man or did I see a Maero? Part of me feels it was a multi-dimensional “something” due to the way I felt after sighting it and the way it tracked me without noise.

It’s been six hours later and I still feel “shock” and can vividly see the moment. I feel blessed to of witnessed this entity, obviously by accident, but I also feel extremely lucky to be able.

I won’t be exposing the exact location because humans being humans will more than likely want to hunt, track, trace and do what humans do to anything of the unknown and hurt it for their own gain. 

But if anyone has similar experiences or any input, feel free to join the Korero.

At first I thought of it as a person, but the more I thought about it, it was tall, dark, and has a huge “hunch” or curved top of their back, but moved smoothly. I saw it for all of three seconds max through the break in the trees between the river and the track. I can’t 100% confirm head shape or look. But I can 100% confirm it was impossible to be a human due to it size and no sign of anyone else entering or leaving the track I was on.

Interview with NZ hunter on encounters with Bigfoot ‘moehau’s’

Clint’s property backs up against a mountain range in rural Waima, and is surrounded by wilderness. It appears, Clint is a little afraid at night. He is an experienced hunter and has had from what he reports, years of multiple encounters with New Zealand’s Bigfoot or Moehau’s, one of several names given to them in New Zealand. Clint talks of the dying older generation, of his tribe, who were well aware of these forest giants. Sometimes there were closed door meetings about them in the community.

He says many modern Maori have lost knowledge of them. Though there have been dozens of witnesses who have contacted me, only a few are willing to go on camera. This is one of those interviews, the others are in reserve for the documentary I have been working on…

I have experienced some of what Clint has described as sign posts of interactions from these wild people. My wilderness investigations and recordings are ongoing. See youtube vide below for the interview

Pre-lude to an alien abduction

Using equipment I had used for paranormal investigations (while in the USA) to hunt for Bigfoot & UFO’s after strangeness in the New Zealand bush. Things did not stop but sped up. I asked myself “was I going mad?” but then mics and video recorded some of what I experienced! I then discovered others from NZ who had experienced similar.

One of my graphics I made for my low budget documentary about my Skinwalker Ranch encounters in 2013. Area 51 of the paranormal. Here I had light anomalies approach my face against the gale force winds that shook my car at night. Documentary here: https://youtu.be/jZs4sVm29s0

I can’t believe I am typing this. Back in early 2013 while living in the USA I had a close encounter with a silver oblong mercury-like craft that was silent and flew through some mountains by Nelson, Nevada. As I was driving out there to go prospecting. I had a strong urge to pull over nearly crashing my car in the process. Something told me to pull over and later lead to a UFO close encounter along with seeing two strange individuals. These tall people around 6 foot or taller were checking out my car and were seen as I was leaving the sighting area. From this point in my life I launched myself into ufology, joining Las Vegas UFO Hunters, going to tinfoil hat conventions and going to places like Skinwalker Ranch pursuing answers for myself. Meeting some interesting people along the way. I did not know the ramifications that had a domino affect richocheting into my life.

Did any the previous paranormal experiences have any connections to the craft I saw, was something going crazy within me? Now years later after over a decade of doing ITC or instrument trans-communication research I am wondering if I made contact. I had used ITC and capturing EVP’s or electronic Voice phenomena in paranormal investigating when I was with a team in Las Vegas. I jumped into fringe science sinking deep to the bottom of awareness. I wondered if the Bigfoot phenomena were some how connect to anomalous craft seen around the world? As I explored remote bush areas seeking answers to the strange footprints, wild structures, voices, stone clacking, wood knocks etc. I wondered where it was going to lead. When I realised that these beings had reached out to me even here back in 2015 after returning to my home country my jaw about fell off. A shocking message received during a paranormal investigation in Auckland City of all places. During a shielded Sangean spirit box session a message repeated “Accept the Bigfoot people, big people..” https://youtu.be/ekHweu4CcIA

I decided to wear POV GoPro sports cameras and on body audio recorders trying to document the strange voices and calls I heard in areas that are very hard to access for the public, wild thorny areas were I could easily lose my direction. After years of doing this I decided to try and use I.T.C. to get insight into what was really going on in these wild areas. Old Maori legends would talk of these Bigfoot-like giants of which there are several names. I was being invited by whatever was concealing itself from modern humans. My audio from last Friday is a testament to something very bizarre going on. Was I going to meet these beings? I heard footfalls and strange voices in a wild area where there are no tracks. Voices talk of taking me on their ship, about taking seamen, calling my name and trying to reassure me that they would not kill me. Listen to a small fraction of the audio here (from podcast): https://youtu.be/AUy-BxCsVCI I had been using a professional wildlife mic shielded from radio and electro-magnetic interference.
