AT A GLANCE
Strange phenomena

Nostradamus's prophecies Written in verse, the letters of 16th-century French philosopher Michel de Nostredame have long been credited with predicting historical events, including the French Revolution, the rises of Napoleon and Hitler and the 9/11 attacks on the Twin Towers. The vagueness of the descriptions contained within his almost 1,000 quatrains have only encouraged conspiracy theorists – despite the fact that so many of his prophecies, not least the end of the world in 1999, never came true.
Marie Celeste Speculation over what happened to the crew of the Canadian-built brigantine, found empty and adrift in the Atlantic in 1872, has been fuelled by a lack of evidence to support suggestions of piracy or mutiny. The mystery remains unsolved to this day – but in 2006, a UCL scientist posited that an explosion caused by alcohol leaking from the ship’s cargo, could have caused a “a pressure-wave type of explosion”, which would have killed the crew.
Area 51 A remote area of desert in Nevada is a magnet for conspiracy theorists, many of whom believe it is where post-war US governments hid evidence of alien life. Recently released documents, however, revealed the area as having been used during the Second World War as an aerial gunnery for pilots.
Crop circles There are countless theories about exactly how crops are flattened in elaborate patterns of geometric lines and circles. But rather than being a supernatural phenomenon, or one created by the landing gear of extra-terrestrial spacecraft, the only proven cause is human. However, conspiracy theorists continue to claim they could be caused by magnetism, paranormal activity or weather patterns.
Spontaneous human combustion There are hundreds of accounts of people catching fire with no source of spark, their surroundings untouched. One theory for the phenomenon – which captures the imagination of ghoulish schoolchildren – is due to a build-up of methane that is ignited by enzymes or static electricity. But many scientists believe the victims actually died after falling asleep with a lit cigarette, suffocated and, in a slow-burning process known as the wick effect, are evaporated.
"Is the dress blue or white?" A conspiracy for the internet age. One image polarised the entire internet because individuals perceive colours in different ways. It also depended on the environment and screen the image was viewed on, and how much white balance was applied to it. The dress was blue and black.
