Welcome to B.E.A.M.S.

Founded in 1991, our society consists of a
team of active reporters and field investigators who
factually gather, study and disseminate evidence relating to Earth Mysteries, (e.g. Ley Lines, Terrestrial Energies and Ancient Site Anomalies), Strange Aerial Happenings, (e.g. Unidentified Flying Objects or UFOs), and The Paranormal, (e.g. Spirit and Psychic Phenomena).

This is a faithful photographic reproduction of a two-dimensional, public domain work of art. The image itself is in the public domain because the copyright has expired, due to the fact that its first publication occurred prior to January 1, 1925.

This file is a stereogram. Stereograms are stereoscopic images or animations which combine left and right frames showing slightly different visual angles to allow for 3D perception.

The sterogram uses the side-by-side cross-view method. The left frame shows the right eye's perspective, and the right frame the left eye's perspective. It might be possible to view this image without a viewing device by crossing your eyes to visually combine the frames, or a stereoscope may be used.

Comment: Looking at it closely, it's not a chunk of wood (too much structure at one end), it's not crud on the lens, it's not a smudge. It must be real. After all, it's not like a photographer taking a picture of a really large ice formation might have wanted to put something there for scale, is it?
