PARANORMAL ACTIVITY SURROUNDING UFO ENCOUNTERS AND SIGHTINGS
Over the years, many have regarded what is coined as paranormal activities, such as odd noises, telepathy, apparations, electronic malfunctions and many other anomalies to be associated with that subject exclusively and as being totally separate from UFO investigations. However, a recent review of the files and information for the past twenty years has shed some light and shown there there very likely is a possible connection between the two, with paranormal activity playing a significant role in experiencers' lives.
The term, HIgh Strangeness was coined by Dr. J. Allen Hynek and the defination at this time states that it is the inexplicable effects and synchronicity of events related to and occurring before, during, and after research missions, various Close Encounters or UFO/ETS sightings, some examples being encounters with unknown creatures, MIB's, and the infamous black helicopters often seen by experiencers after an event. High strangeness can include everything from a feeling of time distortion(time slowing down) to items appearing though no one has purchased them to strange unidentifiable footprints to shadow dogs in the moonlight...these and many other strange occurances appear to be somehow related to the UFO phenomena as time and again, events unfold that fall into this category.
Many experiencers have oddities happen that formarly were thought to be of the 'spirit world' but upon further analyzation, have some sort of connection to a sighting or an encounter as evidenced by this recent post in a popular forum:

'Is there anything you've noticed through daily living in your home concerning the presence of an ET, such as particular noises, electrical disturbances, sudden changes in temperature, chills, random television noises when it's off, etc? I feel as though my experience is connected with the odd things I've been sensing/hearing within my home, definitely in the living room when it is silent and in the early hours of the morning (before sunrise). Sometimes I feel as if something is moving about in my home as I go from room to room, and that there is something standing behind my television while I lay on my couch, but not noticeabley when directly looking at it. It's like this half-figure is two-dimensional when looking at it, but with my peripheral, it shows more outline, like it is a dimension of its own that we cannot interact with. But as I said, it just stands there, for hours. I've only started to notice this activity the last year or so.'
Some experiences are disturbing and dangerous, as is illustrated in the following story:
'I was laying in bed, my boyfriend had just gotten up to go to work. All of a sudden I hear an “oh F***” and a very loud electrical popping noise, I jumped up out of bed because it sounded almost like my boyfriend had been electricuted. I came into the kitched to find the stove was on fire. All electrical units in our stove had popped at the same time and were actually burning. It was really scarey, especially since we had our animals and our son all in the house! After we got the fire put out we went outside to go and smoke again. It was around 3:30am (my boyfriend works at a factory and wakes up at 3am to go to work.) I’m looking up in the sky above our house at a really bright star, when that star begins to move. Then it stopped again and hovered, then another appeared next to it, then they both crossed over our house. Needless to say I did not feel comfortable enough to go back to sleep after he left for work.'
An instance like this would have been formerly thought to be either some sort of purely 'paranormal' phenenomon or a very bizarre electronic malfunction. However, due to the fact that this occured right before the experiencer had an incredible sighting of a UFO, one can make a deduction that the two events are quite possibly related. Time and again we have seen that electronic surges have, at times, some sort of connection to UFO activity as demonstrated by the Great Blackout of NIagra Falls, New York in 1965. Originally thought to be an electronic malfunction, it was later determined that an actual power surge had occured from outside their power grid and from an unknown source. That same evening The Syracuse Herald-Journal was inundated with over 100 calls of UFO sightings in that area.
THE SKINWALKER RANCH
Probably one of the most convincing stories in connecting paranormal occurances to UFO activity is the famous Skinwalker Ranch located in Uintah county, Utah. In 1994 Tom Gorman(not his real name) and his wife bought the ranch, a sprawling area in the high dessert plains of Utah.

Soon after they arrived, it was obvious that this was no ordinary homestead. On the day that the Gormans moved their furnishings into the home, they encountered what they would later feel was a foreshadowing of events to come. a wolf, apparently tame, came up to the family and was affectionate; the animal behaved as a dometic canine might. The family stroked the animal and then without apparent cause, the wolf jumped a fence and began to attack one of the family's livestock. The family began to yell at the wolf, and when that did nothing, began to try to shoo the animal away with sticks. Now the livestpck that the wolf was attacking was bleeding and the family became frantic; Mr. Gorman took his shotgun anf fired at the animal, hitting it squarely, and even seeing flesh torn off. Still the animal did not stop it's ravaging of the stock...Mr. Gorman continued to shoot the wolf, each time fhe shot finding its mark, and yet the animal appeared unfazed, eventually loping off in a casual way, seemingly unharmed.
Sightings abound at the Skinwalker Ranch and the surrounding areas...Uintah county is well known for it's UFO activity and unusual traces of evidence found around or near sites. Here on this most unusual 'ranch', High Strangeness reaches new heights.

Strange Footprints at the Skinwalker Ranch
Though not all experiencers have such dramatic events as the Skinwalker Ranch, many report that some sort of 'oddness' will occur before or after a sighting, and it often shakes up the experiencer, and they seek feedback on the forums to confirm that they are not imagining these things. As these occurances continue to multiply, it gives us all pause to wonder how and why these things are connected...some appear quite 'personal' as if someone or something 'knew' what would upset the individual, while others are random things that do not appear to have any rationale behind it..
As the 'high strangeness' continues to grow, we can only observe and analyze these events, perhaps attempting to see if it is part of a bigger picture...
