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).

Accidentally Captured UFO Photo: 1983 Appletreewick, Near Skipton, Yorkshire, UK

This photograph was taken in 1983 in a little village called Appletreewick near Skipton, Yorkshire England.

There has been quite a debate regarding this object which wasn't seen at the time; some think it's a UFO, or a portal others that it is something paranormal.

Whatever it is... it certainly isn't a hot air balloon; that possibility has been excluded following local enquiries.

The Craven Arms is the location where this mysterious image was taken in 1983, well before the age of digital photography.

A local resident took a photograph with a Kodak camera of traditional Morris Dancers outside the pub. When the film was developed she was shocked to notice a large, glowing, orange orb behind the tree in the middle ground of the picture.

The circumstances here are slightly reminiscent of the now famous 1964 Solway Firth 'Spaceman' image, in that no one saw that out-of-place visitant at the time either, until the film was developed; and we think that is what has happened here with the Appletreewick photo; somehow the camera has managed to capture something that was invisible to the naked eye; impossible you may think, but it seems according to all of the evidence we have acquired, (all available on the BEAMS site) that on rare occasions, such things do happen!

The area surrounding Appletreewick also has a fascinating history... indicated by several ancient sites, such as this Bronze Age standing stone circle, located on a sloping hillside overlooking Hebden Moor and Grimwith Reservoir.
