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 Kurhah@Hotmail.co.uk and Gav at gavin@supernaturalufo.com


If you're interested in potentially taking over the site and its content then please contact gavin@supernaturalufo.com


Thanks guys, you've been awesome!!


Chris & Gav

Although the 150-foot (45 meters) space rock is nowhere near as large as the asteroid thought thought to have killed off the dinosaurs — that behemoth was likely about 6 miles (10 kilometers) wide — it could still cause some serious damage, experts say.

“The asteroid is about 150 feet in diameter and has a mass estimated at about 143,000 tons,” NASA astronomer Don Yeomans wrote in a Feb. 9 opinion piece for The New York Times. “Should an object of that size hit Earth, it would cause a blast with the energy equivalent of about 2.4 million tons — or 2.4 megatons — of TNT explosives, more than 180 times the power of the atomic blast that leveled Hiroshima.”….
