Was Tunguska Event a Meteorite?


Tunguska event was an enormous explosion that is estimated to have occurred at 7:14 am plus or minus one minute on June 30, 1908, at an altitude of 5–10 km (15,000–30,000 feet), flattening some 2,000 square km (500,000 acres) and charring more than 100 square km of pine forest near the Podkamennaya Tunguska River in Siberia.

It is widely accepted it was a meteorite that exploded above the land. But was it?

There is a location in the zone called The Devil's Cemetery.

Within this zone, no trees grow. It is a clear meadow in the middle of the forest. 

It is said dead birds and animals lay there, not decomposing. People develop headaches, anxiety, nausea. To remain an area of such active energy, it seems rather odd a meteorite exploding overhead over 100 years ago would create this series of issues.  Hundreds of people that went looking for the meadow went missing. 

LINK:   In 1991 an expedition of ufologists from the city of Vladivostok set off for the search of the Devil’s Cemetery. One of the participants, Alexander Renpel, describes the events:

“My compass’s hand froze and pointed at the North only. By the evening people developed tingling sensation in their bodies, some developed toothache. Everybody noticed growing anxiety. Shortly after 9PM we approached the meadow. Our radio froze, and we turned back.”

The members of fraternal research group “Phenomenon” sent two expeditions to the area of the Devil’s Cemetery. But when they were about to reach the meadow, their equipment broke, and they did not take the risk of moving further.

The leader of the expedition Nikita Tomin says:”After walking two kilometers in that direction, we came across a strange, partly collapsed structure located right on the creek. The examination showed that it was an old water mill. Next to it in the snow we found several forged nails typical for the beginning of the 20th century. We also found a couple of contemporary nails, but they were pretty old, too. Obviously, someone tried to repair the mill about 30-50 years ago.

"It looked bizarre since the closest village was five or six kilometers away, and the mill was built in the thick of the woods. Probably, people who used to live here thought it was appropriate to build the mill right there so city people would not notice it. We left the mill alone and began moving further up the creek. We were walking, looking closely at snowy trees, trying to find an answer to a nearly 100 years old puzzle. But only gloomy silence of taiga was our companion."

This location strangely echoes another location made famous by Josh Gates and "Destination Truth."  Hoia Baciu in Romania.

(LINK) This forest has it all–mysterious disappearances, UFO sightings, ghosts, and even ancient tombs. Hoia Baciu is home to the region’s oldest Neolithic settlement, believed to originate from 6500 BCE. The site includes archaic houses and a burial ground. Hoia Baciu was named for a shepherd who vanished in the forest–along with his flock of 200 sheep. According to local legend, neither shepherd or sheep were ever seen again. Most locals who live near the forest are afraid to go inside, believing they will also disappear. Those brave enough to venture within have suffered from strange rashes, headaches, burns, scratches, and nausea, among other ailments. People reportedly experience a high level of anxiety while in the forest, along with the sensation of being watched. Electronics often malfunction in the area as well.

It might be worth looking at sites around the world that have these characteristics and, like Skinwalker Ranch, find out why these places are "weird magnets."
