'Eyes' in the Cave
Phantoms and Monsters received this from Sean Forker on April 8th, 2014. What do you think these are?

This photo was taken in 1895 by an amateur spelunker/photographer named Oren Jeffries while exploring an unmapped section of Grand Caverns, in Southwestern Virginia. At the time it was taken, Jeffries was conducting photographic experiments, using super long exposures to see if anything at all could be captured in the total absence of light—otherwise known as “cave darkness.” He would situate himself on level ground, extinguish his lantern, and then open the lens of his homemade box camera for as long as he could stand the darkness. During one of these experiments, he heard something approach from the deeper recesses of the cave. Frightened, Jeffries abandoned his experiment and set off one of the Blitzlicht flashes he used for taking traditional photos underground. According to the report he later gave to a local newspaper, Jeffries saw three “humanoid” creatures staring at him from the shadows and took off running in the other direction and didn’t stop running until he was topside. Several days later, he returned with three other men to retrieve his box camera. This is the image that was recorded on the film inside.

Cult Calendar – April 19, 1993
The 51 day stand-off ends in a fiery climax,  beginning with the FBI tear-gassing the compound, resulting in more shooting and several fires, the starting of which is attributed to the Branch Davidians. The siege ultimately claims the lives of 76, including two pregnant women and over 20 children. David Koresh and others were later found to have been shot in the head indicating suicide or assisted suicide. 
Two years later, Timothy McVeigh detonates explosives outside of the Alfred P. Murrah federal building in Oklahoma City as revenge for the siege at Waco.

Cult Calendar– March 26
Heaven Can’t Wait
On March 26, 1997, surviving Heaven’s Gate member Rio DiAngelo received a Fed-Ex package with a videotape ("Do’s Final Exit,") and a note:
“By the time you read this, we will have exited our bodies.”
That day, police arrived at a rented 9,200-sq.-ft. mansion in a gated San Diego community to find the other 39 members of the Heaven’s Gate cult dead in the largest and most publicized mass suicide to happen in America. The members, aged 26 to 72, killed themselves in three waves on March 24, 25 and 26 to coincide with the arrival of the comet Hale Bop and a trailing UFO.
Most of the bodies were arranged neatly on their beds with their faces and torsos covered with a purple cloth. Each body, dressed in identical black shirts and sweat pants, brand new black-and-white Nikes, had a five dollar bill and three quarters in their pockets, luggage at their side and armband patches reading “Heaven’s Gate Away Team.”
The group, led by Marshall Applewhite, (pictured above, the third to the last to commit suicide) ate a final meal of turkey pot pie, house salad with tomato-vinagrette dressing, blueberry cheesecake and iced tea, together at Marie Callendar’s earlier that week. Their recipe for death:  phenobarbital in apple sauce, washed down with vodka and a plastic bag over the head.
