Classified UFO

A self-proclaimed “flying saucer enthusiast,” 20-year-old Frederick Valentich disappeared on a solo training flight. During the trip, he radioed air traffic control to report another aircraft flying about 1,000 feet above him, adding that his own engine had begun running loudly and roughly. Suddenly, he then uttered, “It’s not an aircraft.” He was never heard from again.

4. Toynbee Tiles

Toynbee Tiles


Found in major cities around the U.S. and South America, the “Toynbee Tiles” are embedded in roadways seemingly overnight. They first appeared in Baltimore in 1984, and people have been trying to decipher their meaning ever since. “Toynbee” possibly points to the book Fahrenheit 451, while the other references might have something to do with Stanley Kubrick. To date, though, no one knows who leaves the tiles or how they manage to do it.
