UFOs are unidentified flying objects, but no one really knows what they are. The chances for seeing a

UFO are greater for those people who live in small towns or in the country and are outside late at night. UFOs come in all shapes and sizes. Some are only small spots of light that move in strange patterns across the night sky. Some that can be seen in the daytime are often disk- or saucer-shaped.

(Picture 2) Where

is Himalayas? What’s the weather like there? Why do some people make great efforts to climb it? Yeti is reported to be half-man and half-beast, have you heard of it? Do you think some climbers’ disappearance have some connections with Yeti?

The Yeti is a humanlike creature which is supposed to live in the Himalayas, the highest mountain in the world. Several sightings, mainly of footprints, have been reported by westerner explorers over the years. Yet none of them have been supported or proved with evidence in any way.
