Bored with "natural" phenomenon images such as aurora borealis (the Northern Lights), lightning, lava flows, and such? If so, then show us your unnatural phenomenon captures!

Agreed :-) What would be an example? Would this be Extended Editing and create-your-own phenomenon, or what?

The title is self-explanatory. ;-)

phenomenon: a fact or situation that is observed to exist or happen, especially one whose cause or explanation is in question
unnatural: contrary to the ordinary course of nature; abnormal

The rest is up to the imagination and creativity of the photographic artist.

Sure, could be (Ext. Editing). It's something along the lines of unexplained phenomenon. Also, seeing that Halloween is just around the corner, this would be a good fit around that time.

Examples: UFOs, aberrations, defying nature, etc.

My instinct would be to go to something like this, but I disagree that "unnatural" and "unexplained" are closely synonymous: a rocket taking off would *never* occur in nature but is relatively easy to explain ...

We COULD call it "Unexplained or Mysterious Phenomena" if people thought that as better, but I don't see a real need.

I'm fine with whatever it's called. You guys know what resonates best with the DPC audience. Feel free to name it appropriately. :-)
