Virgin Mary.( up on the hill)

If in case you aren't aware, it's possible to buy a copy of that program at Amazon.com. Using the search terms "Unsolved Mysteries" and "Miracles " will lead to a box set consisting of 4 discs for $25.99. It's an accumulation of the program's best investigations regarding miracles. If I'm recalling correctly, the segment about Valley Hill is on the 3rd disc under the title "Kentucky Visions." My experience was similar, except I first saw it in October of 1996. I wasn't paying much attention, just flipping the channels and came upon it at the precise moment that part of the show began. From what I gather it was reran on that night with the original broadcast date being October 27, 1995. Regards,  (Mar 11, 2013 | post #18)

How do Mr. Stupid, To so sweepingly accuse others of ignorance is rather ironic considering your facts. The primary incident which resulted in Valley Hill’s reputation had nothing to do with hearsay (hopefully your not representing someone in court anytime soon). That segment on Unsolved Mysteries regarding a miracle at Valley Hill arose from first hand testimony involving 8 girls and their Sunday school teacher. For those who don’t know, upon reaching the hilltop there in April of 95, this group suddenly encountered a sequence of strange visions which began after glancing at the sun. After that incident the crowds of people and some investigators started visiting the location. During the Unsolved Mysteries segment about Valley Hill they interviewed those very girls who experienced that event. I wouldn’t give you a definition of it, and I would suggest looking it up before using it again, but that is hardly hearsay. As for Valley Hill being haunted, I’ve never made any such assessment - my interpretation of the Skull-Flame has nothing to do with spirits and apparitions. That in my opinion is an explanation overly simplistic for those events back then. As for Iona Wright dieing in a psych ward, if true such evidence is of interest to me. However, I wouldn’t be at all surprised if this were just another wild rumor espoused by ignorant people. Personally I saw her at Valley Hill on a number of occasions years ago, but I never had any contact with her or their group which met monthly on the 3rd and 23rd (unintentionally on a few occasions I happen to stop by on the days they were meeting). Like yourself I find it hard to swallow Mother Mary’s rigid schedule. However, I wouldn’t be in the least surprised if Mrs. Wright genuinely encountered visions at that locations. I myself encountered something there that was visually extraordinary, but the problem can rest upon a persons ability/opportunit y to distinguish the physical from illusions of the psyche. If Mrs. Wright did end up in a psych ward at the end, I wouldn’t be entirely surprised considering the types of dangers present in such phenomena. Furthermore, if she were a nun at some point I’d like to document that too. Unfortunately it wouldn’t surprise me if this was just another ignorant rumor. My reason for questioning this pertains to information associated with her having grandchildren. Regarding the photographic evidence presented on Unsolved Mysteries, at least on that point your not entirely ignorant. The program presents a thorough evaluation appearing to debunk the possibility of anything paranormal in those images (although I’ve never reviewed them beyond the video). There is however something the programs photo analysis tends to overlook: authenticity. This is profoundly displayed by one photo where a girl who, along with everyone there, perceived the presence of gold radiating from the ground and rising up to cover her body. From a mythic/archetypal context the symbolism in that aspect of their collective vision is to me extremely interesting. What strikes me as interesting is the reaction such facts can evoke in skeptical zealots. They tend to most often gloss over such facts, and can make insinuations akin to something along the lines of mass hysteria, while eagerly shifting the discussion to some other incidental attribute more easily disproven. For me, their vision was the most phenomenal attribute encountered that day by those girls at Valley Hill, and similar to the 1917 Fatima miracle it appears there is no physiological explanation that serves to scientifically account for what appears to be some sort of mass hallucination. In my opinion, anyone who can unquestioningly brush aside such facts as nothing special or worthy of investigation, serves to in turn suggest an inability to critically evaluate reality. Sorry to be so blunt Mr. Stupid, but like you I too can get a little annoyed by ignorance. Regards,  (Feb 28, 2013 | post #13)

Actually it's not possible to zoom in on either of the anomalies I've posted here without loosing detail. They are both very low in resolution and attempting to enlarge them will produce a pixelated distortion of the true image effect. Regards,  (Feb 27, 2013 | post #10)

I attempted to post the following in response to the comment on your site, but it never showed up. Feel welcome to re-post it there for me if you like: "Just seeing it wouldn't be a problem, I also have 4 more interesting images from Valley Hill. I'm not entirely clear on how you produced the enlarged Skull-Flame image. If it's derived from the image containing the chair, that then accounts for the extremely poor quality. The image containing the chair is a low-res JPEG intentionally used on the net to inhibit high quality productions. Enlarging it will result in an overly pixelated effect that poorly represents the actual anomaly. I'll send you a better close up of the anomaly. I'll also try and send a 1995 clip of an Unsolved Mysteries segment regarding Valley Hill - if possible. Regards,"  (Feb 27, 2013 | post #9)

Have you checked all the comments under the Valley Hill photos here? If not, you might find more info of interest. I'm currently heading out of town for a few weeks and will have to contact you later. Not sure if you noticed, but there's no need to zoom in on this image to better identify the Skull-Flame. There's an enlarged crop of the anomaly here that's far more revealing. As for paranormal activity at Valley Hill, you never know. There was something going on there once (no question), but I've encountered almost nothing of interest there since 1999. Good luck if you go, I'd very much like to see something of interest occur there again. Regards for now,  (Feb 9, 2013 | post #6)

skull-flame anomaly

As was the case in the other thread, so to is the originally intended size of this image altered (if one enters this thread from the "Forums" category). In this case the image becomes enlarged. Again, just click the image to produce the intended size effect. Regards,  (Jul 4, 2012 | post #2)

Hello Stephanie, The primary relevance of this image is to indicate the setting around which the anomaly appeared. The second photo submitted gives an enlarged view of the anomaly. This image was captured on 35mm film, and the effect on photo paper is stunning. Reproducing that effect in digital form uploaded to the net is difficult---partly due to variances in website settings respective to the color and brightness of each individual monitor. Also, I've noticed when this thread opens it yields a smaller image. By clicking that image, it will then revert to the originally intended size. Even in that final result, and knowing what to look for, I can just barely identify the skull. Try the next image of the enlarged anomaly, the skull is more apparent.

My understanding of the trailer is this. I seem to recall someone saying years ago that Iona Wright (who has now past on) was planning to stay there. Although she owned the land, she lived in Louisville. When I first went there in 1996, the place was far more attractive and mysterious. Over the years, that effect from nature surrounding the hill was replaced by structures far less attractive. In that vain the trailer was a crowning achievement. At some point over the past few years it burnt down (not sure what happened there). Thankfully all its remains are now gone. Regards,  (Jul 1, 2012 | post #14)
