At the beginning of the 21st Century monsters still roam the remote, and sometimes not so remote, corners of our planet. It is our job to search for them. The Centre for Fortean Zoology [CFZ] is - we believe - the largest professional, scientific and full-time organisation in the world dedicated to cryptozoology - the study of unknown animals. Since 1992 the CFZ has carried out an unparalleled programme of research and investigation all over the world. Since 2009 we have been running the increasingly popular CFZ Blog Network, and although there has been an American branch of the CFZ for over ten years now, it is only now that it has a dedicated blog.

ON THIS DAY IN WEIRD



On This Day in Weird, December 23...

1909: Thousands watch a mysterious "airship" passing over Boston, Marlboro, Framingham, Natick, Needham, and Newton, Massachusetts, sometimes decreasing altitude to an estimated 100 feet above ground, then rising and moving on. Some witnesses claim they see two men aboard the craft, one standing forward near its "headlight," a second in the rear. The ship reaches Newton shortly after 7 p.m. and hovers over the city for 25 minutes before departing.
