    'USA: MYSTERIOUS NAZI SUBMARINE FROM WWII DISCOVERED IN GREAT LAKES'

    HISTORY

    Niagara Falls| Divers from the U.S coast guard took part this morning, in a delicate wreck recovery operation to bring to the surface a Nazisubmarine discovered two weeks ago at the bottom of Lake Ontario.

    The U-boat was spotted for the first time by amateur scuba divers in late January and they had contacted the authorities. Archaeologists associated with Niagara University of and master divers from the U.S Coast Guard were mobilized on site to determine what it was, and they soon realized that they were dealing with a German submarine that sank during World War II.

    A wreck recovery vessel of the Great Lakes Shipwreck Historical Society was mandated to refloat the ship and bring it back to Niagara Falls, where it must be restored before becoming a museum ship. The delicate recovery operation took nearly 30 hours to complete, but the submarine was finally brought down on the bank with relative ease.

    The divers of the U.S. Coast guard braved the frigid water temperature to go attach cables to the wreck for the recovery operation.

    The submarine was identified as the UX-791, a unique experimental German submarine, based on the U-1200 model, and known to have participated in the “Battle of the St. Lawrence”. It was reported missing in 1943 and was believed to have been sunk near the Canadian coast.

    Professor Mark Carpenter, who leads the team of archaeologists, believes that the U-boat could have traveled up the St-Lawrence River, all the way to the Great Lakes, where it intended to disturb the American economy.

    A report from the dated from February 1943 suggests, that the ship could have attacked and destroyed three cargo ships and two fishing vessels, even damaging the USS Sable (IX-81), an aircraft carrier of the U.S. navy that was used for training in the Great Lakes, before finally being sunk by anti-sub grenades launched by a Canadian frigate.

    “We have known for a long time that the Nazis had sent some of their U-boats in the St-Lawrence River, but this is the first proof that they actually reached the Great Lakes,” Professor Carpenter told reporters. “This could explain the mysterious ship disappearances that took place in the region in 1943, and the reported “Battle of Niagara Falls” which had always been dismissed as a collective hallucination caused by fear.”

    The restoration of the submarine could take more than two years, but once completed, the museum ship is expected to become one of the major tourist attractions of the region.

    The Battle of the St. Lawrence? I don't remember that one from school or anywhere. You really can learn something new every day.

    Arizona: Buried Dead ‘Zombie’ Cat Comes Back to Life After 14 Days

    Sun Valley, AZ | An Arizonian family was utterly shocked when their cat reappeared 14 days after they had buried the family pet.

    Gonzo, a three-year-old cat, had recently been hit by a car and was believed to be dead when the family decided to bury the animal near Petrified Forest National Park, a few miles away from the family home.

    “I almost had a heart attack when I saw my little Gonzo in the window,” admits Tania Harding. “He looked in pretty bad shape, but it was definitely our little Gonzo” she remembers, visibly surprised.

    A 14-mile trek

    As well as having the surprise of finding their cat alive, the family was astonished that the cat walked over 14 miles to reach the family home.

    “How did he find his way back home?” asks Peter Harding, husband and father of two. “I’ve heard weird stories of cats and dogs walking hundreds of miles to reunite with their owners, but we buried the cat, then it had to find its way home and it did all that in an extremely bad shape, this is plain inexplicable” he adds, visibly mystified by the whole affair.

    An ancient Navajo burial ground

    The mysterious reappearance has stemmed a lot of rumors in the small community, admits Petrified Forest National Park ranger, Adam Goldman.

    “People have been calling a lot and asking where the cat was buried, some even say that it was buried on an ancient Navajo Indian burial ground. Although they are right that the area of the park where the cat was buried has shown archeological evidence of Navajo presence in the past, there is no certainty that it is the location of an ancient Navajo burial ground,” he acknowledges. “If people want to believe that the cat was brought back to life by an evil omen or something, they are entitled to believe that. As long as people don’t start burying their dead pets all over the place,” he told local reporters with a grin.

    An ancient Navajo Indian belief warns of disrupting the sleep of the dead, as wandering spirits were believed to haunt the burial grounds at night and could take possession of one’s body, particularly on nights of the full moon.

    From the photo, it does not appear to be a UBoat, nor is it a U-1200 type boat, nor a type VIIc UBoat

    It's a Japanese spacecraft and that's not Earth.:2 thumbs up:

    Actually I'm inclined to think this looks a lot like K-159.
