The Space Dragon Eclipse

R&H fortean editor Raven Akki and his mate Edgar with the hat track down a dragon doing an egg.

Edgar and I were given a tip-off that a lunar eclipse was going to break out at 01:00 Cornwall time t'other day (4/4/15), so rather than verifying this first we decided it would be a good idea to test our cameras out for some night work instead.

As we got to our secret location, Edgar felt the cold quite badly (even quoting a song of ice and fire at one point, Winter Is Coming).

After setting up I was reminded that space dragons come out of moon eggs, so the whole night was renamed 'the Space Dragon Eclipse'.

So sit back, relax and check out what followed.

Chief hacks note: And also some thermal undies for Edgar. In the meantime, if you want to know more about the planet Nibiru, which gets a mention in the vid, have a click of this and this for starters, although whether any of it's true or not is yet to be proven. Hey, that's what mysteries are all about, yeah? Otherwise, they wouldn't be mysteries. Spooky, huh?

The above vid is embedded here on the fortean-tastic Rake & Herald from Raven's top-notch YouTube channel, which you can check out and subscribe to by having a clicksy of this. And while you're about it, please give Raven and Edgar's FaceBook page a like. Go on, you know you want to.

What mean fortean?

The terms fortean and forteana derive from the work of Charles Hoy Fort (1874-1932), an American journalist who catalogued anomalous and paranormal reports, ranging from frog falls and spontaneous human combustion to ghosts, cryptids and UFOs. Spending much of his time sifting through "the data of the damned" in the New York Public Library and the British Museum Library, he wrote four seminal texts based on his findings and theories, viz The Book of the Damned (1919), New Lands (1923), Lo! (1931) and Wild Talents (1932). To learn more about this home-brewing inventor of topeacho, have a read of this.
