Site Closing:

Hi guys,

Gav and I have decided that it's no longer economic to keep SupernaturalUFO running so there won't be any new articles from today except on Twitter. We've both been funding the site out of our own pockets since we began 5 years ago to give our readers the best reading experience and we're against advertising so bottom line is, we're closing down.

We'd like to personally thank our readers, contributors and anyone else who has been involved with the site, your input has been invaluable in us publishing nearly twenty thousand news articles.

If anybody has any questions, queries or simply wants to keep in touch, I can be contacted at and Gav at

If you're interested in potentially taking over the site and its content then please contact

Thanks guys, you've been awesome!!

Chris & Gav

‘The dust and greenhouse gases released from the crater, the seismic shock and the initial fireball would have incinerated large parts of the Earth,’ said Andrew Glikson, visiting fellow at the Australian National University. He added: ‘The greenhouse gases would stay in the atmosphere for tens of thousands of years.’

Evidence of the ancient catastrophe was only discovered after another researcher alerted Dr Glikson to unusual mineral deposits in the East Warburton Basin in South Australia. As the ages have passed, the mammoth impact zone has been buried beneath nearly 2.5 miles of earth…
