The Real 1408 Story – The Hotel del Coronado
From The Paranormal
Behind every good ‘story’ lies, at the very least, a small amount of truth. The movie 1408[, and the Stephen King short story from which it was adapted, follow] horror writer Mike Enslin’s discovery of, and subsequent terrifying stay, within the Dolphin Hotel’s room 1408. The ‘real’ events that inspired Stephen King to pen this masterpiece of horror, occurred within the ‘Hotel Del Coronado’. A luxury beachfront hotel located in the city of Coronado, San Diego County, California.

“1408” is a short story by Stephen King. It is the third tale in the audiobook collection titled Blood and Smoke, released in 1999. In 2002, it was collected in written form as the 12th story in King’s collection Everything’s Eventual.
In the introduction to the story, King says that “1408” is his version of what he calls the “Ghostly Room at the Inn”, his term for the theme of haunted hotel or motel rooms in horror fiction. He originally wrote the first few pages as part of an appendix for his non-fiction book, On Writing (2000), to be used as an example of how a story changes from one draft document to the next. King also noted how the numbers of the title add up to the supposedly unlucky number 13. Continue reading
Earlyne Chaney wrote in chapter 3 in page 43:
“When I probed for more knowledge about Knut (The Great Pyramid) and the Sphinx, which to us were already unutterably, aged, they related a strange tale about the great Beings called the Anaki, the Mighty Ones, who came to Earth ages ago from another solar system, arriving from spaceship. They came from the star Sothis (Sirius). They landed on a land called Aztlan (Atlantis). They brought with them a divine consciousness and knowledge of all the secrets of nature. My father called them the Sons of GOD.
When the Anaki first arrived from their home planet, they brought with them a crucible called an Ark of the Covenant. This Ark contained a peculiar pulsating crystal infused with a living light. Under guidance, it emitted rays of force. It was constructed so as to become an instrument, a device, a store-house, Continue reading

Styx is a small natural satellite of Pluto whose discovery was announced on 11 July 2012. It is the fifth confirmed satellite of Pluto and was found approximately one year after Kerberos, Pluto’s fourth confirmed satellite.
Styx was discovered by a team led by astronomer Mark R. Showalter, using fourteen sets of images taken between 26 June and 9 July 2012 by the Wide Field Camera 3 fitted to the Hubble Space Telescope.
Styx is about half as bright as the dimmest previously known object in the system, Kerberos, and about one hundred thousandth as bright as Pluto. It was designated S/2012 (134340) 1, and informally referred to as P5. Continue reading

Earth’s radiation belt: Van Allen probes reveal ‘zebra stripes’ in space
From Science Daily, March 19, 2014
Scientists have discovered a new, persistent structure in one of two radiation belts surrounding Earth. NASA’s twin Van Allen Probes spacecraft have shown that high-energy electrons in the inner radiation belt display a persistent pattern that resembles slanted zebra stripes. Surprisingly, this structure is produced by the slow rotation of Earth, previously considered incapable of affecting the motion of radiation belt particles, which have velocities approaching the speed of light.

Plasma shield: Natural shield protects Earth from harmful radiation belt
From Science Daily, November 26, 2014
Researchers have found there’s a hard limit to how close ultrarelativistic electrons can get to the Earth. The team found that no matter where these electrons are circling around the planet’s equator, they can get no further than about 11,000 kilometers from the Earth’s surface — despite their intense energy.
High above Earth’s atmosphere, electrons whiz past at close to the speed of light. Such ultrarelativistic electrons, which make up the outer Continue reading
