13th Century Encounter With Extraterrestrials In Turkey
13th Century Encounter With Extraterrestrials In Turkey
Location: Konya, Turkey Date: 13th century 1207-1273 Time: unknown Kira Hatun the wife of the great Turkish thinker, Mevlana (Mawlana) witnessed her husband encountering “6 imposing men” who came in from a “door” that strangely appeared on the wall of the house. According to her, the men carried roses on their hands and presented them to Mevlana. Then all began to pray. When the prayer session ended the six men vanished in plain sight. Kira took some of the roses and asked her gardener about the origin of these flowers. Amazed he said that these were invaluable Indian roses. (Some speculate that these visitors could have been from Agarta reputed to be an ancient mystical underground civilization in India).

2. Location: Near Konya, Turkey Date: 13th century 1207-1273 Mevlana, the great Turkish philosopher was reported to have encountered “alien beings” near Konya. Even others thought that Mevlana himself was a “space alien”. One of his followers, Kemaleddin, reported witnesses Mevlana communicating with some strange people inside a dome-shaped craft. The craft had a large glass-like transparent section on top in which the strangers and Mevlana could be easily seen. The “aliens” seemed to have been wearing greenish clothing. The witness (Kemaleddin) took the incident as some type of religious apparition and fainted on the spot.

While driving 14-22 miles SW of Las Vegas, country & western singer Johnny Sands saw descending from the sky a rusty orange cigar shaped object with flashing red and white lights on its end and a darker ring around the middle, in which were portholes. It was 60 ft long or longer. Then his car stopped, and he got out to check the engine. 200 ft away he saw 2 men walking toward him who wore silver sparkling one piece uniforms with a diagonal black stripe, and a round white central emblem. He wanted to get into his car, but felt paralyzed. As the men approached, he saw that they were bald and had close set squinting eyes, a gray white complexion, and something like gills under their ears. Their mouths were very small and their noses “puggish.” One of them questioned Sands in English (not using his mouth) in a slow, “robot-like” voice. Asked, “What are you doing here?” he replied, “I am an entertainer”, then “What are your means of communication,” which he was at a loss to answer. 4 or 5 other questions were asked which he has not revealed. They said that they would see him again. Turning to go, the leader brushed his fingertips over the witness hand, which seemed to release him from the paralysis; “his suit was rough, like coarse sandpaper.” They walked away, and the car started again. Many observers reported seeing rust colored cigar shaped objects over the Las Vegas Valley that night.

Meer dan 100 jaar geleden ging de Duitse meteoroloog en aardwetenschapper Alfred Lothar Wegener in tegen alle gevestigde opvattingen door te stellen dat de tektonische platen van de aarde door de tijd heen uit elkaar schuiven. Hij stelde ook dat ze relatief ten opzichte van elkaar bewegen.
Wegener concludeerde dat het bewegen van de platen of schollen wordt veroorzaakt door de uitdijing van de aarde. Hij was echter niet in staat om een goede verklaring te geven voor de krachten en de energiebron die hij verantwoordelijk achtte voor continentverschuivingen. Omdat algemeen werd gedacht dat de aarde een rigide, vast hemellichaam was, hielden zijn theorieën geen stand.
In 1967 stelde de Amerikaanse geofysicus William Jason Morgan dat het aardoppervlak kan worden verdeeld in 12 rigide tektonische platen die onafhankelijk van elkaar bewegen. In korte tijd veranderde continentverschuiving van een vergezochte hypothese tot dé manier om geologische fenomenen te verklaren. De theorie van Wegener heeft een nieuwe dimensie gegeven aan het idee dat de aarde een dynamisch systeem is.
Men is het nog niet eens over de drijvende kracht achter het fenomeen. Op dit moment is er nog weinig steun voor de theorie van de uitdijende aarde. Tegenstanders van de uitdijende aarde doen de theorie steevast af als pseudowetenschap.
Golden Gadzirayi Nyambuya van de National University of Science and Technology in Bulawayo in Zimbabwe laat in het International Journal of Astronomy and Astrophysics zien dat er sterke aanwijzingen zijn voor een uitdijing van de aarde met een snelheid van 0,6 mm per jaar. De aarde moet in dat geval miljoenen jaren geleden een stuk kleiner zijn geweest. Nyambuya verwijst naar onderzoek van F.R. Stephenson uit 1995, waaruit blijkt dat de dagduur ieder jaar 17 microseconden langer wordt. “Als dit klopt verschuift de theorie van de uitdijende aarde van het rijk van de pseudowetenschap naar het rijk van de plausibele wetenschap,” aldus Nyambuya.

News States: Mexico City, April 18, 2014 – A strong earthquake with a magnitude of 7.2 in Mexico. The U.S. Geological Survey reported that the epicenter was 36 kilometers northwest of the city of Tecpan de Galeana, at a depth of 24 kilometers. The site is located northwest of the city of Acapulco, where many Mexicans are spending the Easter holidays and where it was felt distinctly felt.
“This fleet of glowing orbs appeared two days ago over Thailand. The objects fly together at a matched speed. At the end of the video the objects disappear and reappear, which looks like they are passing behind a nearby tree. I don’t believe its the UFOs flashing. I messaged the person and will have an update soon on the exact city in Thailand,” says Scott Waring, author of UFO Sightings Daily.

Interview With Dr. Louis Turi on Predictions UFO and Astropsychology
(Before It's News)
”For those who know me and the Cosmic Code jurisdictions, no explanation is necessary; For those who do not, none will ever suffice… If every 8 year old in the world is taught Astropsychology and meditation, we will eliminate ignorance and violence from the world within one generation.” Watch the future!
~ Dalai Lama and Dr. Turi
As you know we own 3 dogs now, Draco, Macho and Lady and watching them gave me the best advice on how to get INNER PEACE!
If you can start the day without caffeine, if you can always be cheerful, ignoring aches and pains, if you can resist complaining and boring people with your troubles, if you can eat the same food every day and be grateful for it, if you can understand when your loved ones are too busy to give you any time, if you can take criticism and blame without resentment, if you can conquer tension without medical help, if you can relax without alcohol, or weed, if you can sleep without the aid of drugs, then You Are Probably the Family Dog! And you thought I was going to get all spiritual today?
Handle every stressful situation like any of my dogs, thus if you can’t eat it or play with it, pee on it, destroy it and walk away…
How did you develop this technique? How does this tie in with the work of Nostradamus? When asked this question I always respond “do you want the real truth or bull?” Everyone says “the Truth.” Following my 5th kind of UFO encounter in 1991 above the city of Los Angeles, my wife and I were abducted. …
Interview With Dr. Louis Turi on Astropsychology
First of all, I want to thank you Dr. Turi for taking the time with your busy schedule to permit me to interview you!
So tell us Dr. Turi, what exactly is Astropsychology? Astropsychology is a mixture of the ancient art of astrology, traditional psychology and clinical hypnotherapy – one of my students is a Doctor in Psychiatry and told me he learned in my week long crash course than the seven years he spent in an accredited university.
How did you develop this technique? How does this tie in with the work of Nostradamus? When asked this question I always respond “do you want the real truth or bull?” Everyone says “the Truth.” Following my 5th kind of UFO encounter in 1991 above the city of Los Angeles, my wife and I were abducted. The aliens took away the womb and downloaded me with the Cosmic Code secrets. After the ‘meeting’, I could not help myself and painted my entire house with astrological symbols, UFOs and I could not stop studying the work of Nostradamus and anything else metaphysical. While many people have baptized me “The New Nostradamus”, “The Reincarnation of Nostradamus” or “Nostradamus Reincarnated”, born in Provence like him, I only share the same local stars. Meantime, in his prophetic work, 500 years ago, the great Prophet never used a watch or a computer and this is what stimulated me to practice the ancient art the same way, using symbolism, signs and intuition. I have studied mumerous forms of astrology, none of them gave me the degree of accuracy I am famous for.
Can you explain to our readers the meaning of the UCI (Unique Celestial Identity) and how does this tie in with our free will? UCI stands for Unique Celestial Identity or your inherited karmic celestial program at birth. UCI is the spiritual “DNA” of humans as all people are so very different. Each one of us is directly “genealogically” speaking directly related to our ancestry and all our current family members. However within the realm of spirituality, your closest family member’s UCI happens to be your utmost stranger, yet to be uncovered by our infantile scientific community. In the tightest family circle, none of them will think, express, create, behave or agree with each others as man is not born equal, both physically and spiritually. As the soul reincarnate on this dense physical world God “imprint” it with both gifts and shortcomings the person will have to master i.e. gays, bullies, geniuses, criminals etc. I do cover quite a lot on this subject and offer the keys of what it means to human in my newsletters. As far as the human free will is concerned, the part of God in each one of us is much stronger than the stars per say, but without Cosmic Consciousness (understanding the celestial mechanics) one is prone to “act out” the worst of his UCI and simply “act out” or becomes a robot of his stars. 99.09% of the unaware world’s population act robotically judging others through their own overpowering UCI. The will can only be developped when the subject is cosmic conscious and aware of the Supra-conscious forces at work!
“Where Cosmic Consciousness is lacking, religion, conspiracy and imagination does the rest.” There are no accidents just consequences the five logical human senses cannot perceive.” Dr. Turi
You’ve authored several books in the past. Can you share which of the books offer the most guidance to those seeking to explore this subject further? Each one of my book is designed to bring forth “Cosmic Consciousness” at least to a certain degree. My best seller is my yearly Moon Power published since 1995.
“Moon Power”is designed to make people aware that our closest satellite is solely responsible for the dreadful news plaguing humans on earth. In this book I explain in great detail how the moon trigs the human psyche making up all our daily affairs on hearth and how to work in harmony with her. This book is the spiritual human “Farmer’s Almanac” plotting her whereabouts in the belt of the zodiac, all year round where the outmost guidance and predictions where published well before CNN announcements.
“I know All About You” is the fastest simplest way to get introduced to all the signs and get to know everyone around you using Astropsychology through my methodology. It is designed for the kids or those willing to get the most of my expertise but unwilling to do the real mental gymnastics to master the trade. This book will offer the reader a deeper understanding of all the people around him and how they behave, perceive and act out the human experience.
“And God Created The Stars”I wrote this book for all my students where I explain in great details the concept of Nostradamus’ rare methodology by signs and houses. I use very small print thus this 380 page book is more a 500 page loaded of crucial information that will allow the student to navigate through our solar system spiritually. This book is a must read to master the dynamics of our solar system on a high spiritual level and prepare the reader for the study of Astropsychology.
“The Power of The Dragon” Again in this 525 page book, I use very small print trying very hard to pass on a life time of accumulated divine information on the Power of the Dragon. This book is the “Ferrari” of the Spirit where I explain the fate of many famous and infamous people and forever souls that made the human history. From Einstein to serial killers I enunciate how their natal Dragons played a significant part in their endeavors offering them immortality. Knowing and heeding the location of your natal or hidden Dragon’s Head or Tail becomes a major contribution for your success or failure during this particular reincarnation. Much of the human psychology, past lives residue, blessings and karma resides right on the Dragon and does indeed offer the true keys of what it means to be human. “Asia Dragon Prediction” was created for the advanced Oriental part of the world more suited than its Occident religious oriented counterpart. It’s a version of Moon Power depicting the stars and fate of all Asia political Leaders.
“Beyond The Secret” is my biography reflecting my incredible, dramatic life where I explained right from my birth (and my past lives) the how and why I became Dr. Turi. I exposed it all, including my UFO, ghosts and so many barely believable experiences I went through cheating death so many times. In this book I clearly demonstrate how the Supra-conscious acts with the human UCI and create our reality because “The future is nothing else than the reincarnation of the thought.” I explained outside of conventional science, the why, how and what of everything under the sky through some of the most dramatic experiences the people of my life, students, patients, clients, friends and family members including myself had to go through to own true spiritual wisdom. I teach tips and offer explanations that no accredited colleges or universities and traditionally educated professors will ever be capable of.
Based on your work, what was the most profound prediction you made that came to pass? 911 was the top but also both Asia tsunami, Katrina etc… The sad reality is that people reading my work will always remember a bad prediction and with a 98% ratio of accuracy I can assure you that all major news where fully predicted. Again the printing process, dated television and my national radio appearances on Coast to Coast am with George Noory makes my claims unarguable. Here is the sad endless list of my major predictions taken from my website.
N.Y Terrorist Attack – Iraq War – SARS – Asia Tsunami – Mexico Oil Spill – Icelandic Volcano Eruption – Haiti Deadliest Quake Ever, Deadly Hurricane Katrina, California Fires, Deadliest Tornadoes In The US History, ALL major calamities worldwide including the full restructure of the FBI/CIA, the US economy, Mumbai India UK terrorist Attacks etc. ALL Major Earthquakes above 6.0 were FULLY and UNARGUABLY predicted in my book Moon Power and on my radio and television shows. Note also that I am the only Astrophile on the planet posting regularly my “SOS To The World” windows in all major popular websites preparing humankind for its impending fate. Of course people can accurately judge or swear by my predictive gift only if they paid attention to my work and get to know the real me. Until then a newcomer can only be skeptical! Take the time to investigate my mission to translate the Creator’s will upon mankind and understand the “Cosmic Code” because this is the only way God will speak to you. Remember God’s words “I will speak to you but you won’t hear me, I will present myself to you but you won’t see me.” Let me help you raise your Cosmic Consciousness and teach you how to heed God’ signs. You may also appreciate these facts and investigate these claims by visiting his website predictions page.
I understand that you’re also a healer. From my point of view, healing can take on many different forms. Having said that, there are a growing number of people and medical doctors who are shying away from traditional allopathic medicine and the use of prescription drugs in favor of alternative healing. Do you see this as a growing trend in the foreseeable future? Why? Indeed with the Internet access people nowadays are able to investigate pretty much everything and get second opinions on anything, especially with prescription drugs. Again I wrote intensively in my free public Dragon newsletters on this deplorable topic and expose some of my own facts about my own patients becoming paralyzed after ingesting those dangerous medical prescriptions. As a matter of fact, one of my student is a Doctor in Psychiatry told me” Dr. Turi I have learned more in your week long crash course than seven years in college, and he was feed up poisoning people with chemicals.” I have developed my own natural Cabalistic Healing methodology and my Phoenix based “Healing Room” offers quite a lot of relief and information on this subject. My methodology involves a mixture of Nostradamus rare teachings, the American Indian natural healing, a variety of rocks, sounds, Clinical Hypnotherapy, natural food, Astropsychology, traditional astrology, power points chakras pressure, massage etc.
Lastly, I’m asking this question for everyone I interview. What do you see for December 21st, 2012? Update here is the result! “The future is nothing else than the reincarnation of the thoughts” humankind, as of yet does not understand its serious implications and its accumulated applications. Thus I choose the “DAY AFTER” or December 22nd, 2012 as Dr. Turi’s Universal day of prayer marking the awakening of the power of enlightenment, common sense and the liberation of the human spirit from fear. God real Cosmic Identity is on its way for humanity where finally science, the atheists, the Christiansand all other denominations will finally start to see, heed and speak the same Cosmic Code language through my Cyber Cosmic University. On this day NOTHING dramatic will take place, instead a very constructive celestial energy will bless humanity. The Universal gates will open offering humanity a push a rare chance to finally connect with the Divine marking the END of the Age of Pisces (religions/deception/misinformation) and the beginning of the Age of Aquarius (UFO/humanitarian/the truth/the Cosmic Code.) Then, slowly but surely, Jesus’ true spiritual celestial Ministry will be reinstated. Humankind’s cosmic awareness of “Our Father In The Heavens” and God’ signs will be taught and used by all his children of the world promising the long awaited Universal spiritual rebirth of Humanity.

The strictest term for UFO is Unidentified Flying Object. There is no connotations of ownership or origination based solely upon the word. ( Don’t assume UFO means aliens… ) So what did Jeff Templin, an amateur photographer, capture this April 2014 in the skies of Wichita Kansas? You can see the triangle shape, the contrails… maybe a B2 bomber? But according to the original story over at KSN & The Blaze, it was reported as being quiet or silent. The craft was observed doing maneuvers that were extreme. Some have called it a capture of a near mythical black ops project called Aurora an extreme craft possibly even a single stage to orbit space plane… Could this be a drone? or maybe something else…. You Make the Call! See the Full Sized Picture over at the Minnesota Para-Science Web Blog by clicking on the image.
Disk – shaped UFO over Jefferson County, Washington on 15th April 2014
Disk – shaped UFO over Jefferson County, Washington on 15th April 2014
New video footage of a disk – shaped UFO sighting recorded in the night sky above Jefferson County, Washington on 15th April 2014.
Colorful balls of light racing across the night sky are caught on video by a Jefferson County woman. Now she’s trying to figure out what she saw. Amber Wysocki captured the video on her cell phone. “I was shocked. Kind of like, what am I seeing? Am I seeing something I didn’t know what to think?” she stated. Wysocki was driving south Interstate 55 Friday night when she saw lights in the sky near Pevely. She took out her camera and started shooting. There were white blinking lights followed by two balls of light that were blue. All her life Amber has been a doubter when it came to UFOs and aliens. She said, “I don’t find that stuff possible. I’m so skeptical. I guess that’s why I reported it. I’d like to know.”
Another giant fireball was captured on video in Russia, and UFO video capture software caught a few in Japan as well.
Multiple witnesses spotted a giant fireball early Saturday morning over the Kola Peninsula in Russia. According to Russia Today, several people caught the object on their dashcams in the city of Murmansk. At one point the object lit up the night sky as if it were daytime.
Although very impressive, the object did not create sonic booms or blind people like the now famous incident last year in Chelyabinsk. Some twitterers wondered why Russia gets all the good fireballs. Jason Major, blogger for the Universe Today, says it is because it is by far the largest country and dashcams are very prevalent in order to combat insurance fraud.
However, Russia is not the only country to enjoy some spectacular fireballs lately. A video posted on YouTube recently (seen at the top of this story) shows some fireballs over Japan as well. These fireballs were captured using UFO spotting software.
The software is called UFOCapture and is created by SonataCo. The software works on Windows and can be used with any camera attached to the computer via USB or firewire. It will record any movement on the camera. So you can attach a nice camera pointed at the night sky, and if something moves, UFOCapture will be sure to get it, even if it moves as fast as a meteorite or space debris burning up in the atmosphere.
The video, posted by YouTuber Sheilaaliens, is a compilation of fireball videos from the UFOCapture forum between April 17 and 19. Some of them, such as a couple of videos taken on April 17, are quite spectacular.
Japanese UFO video captured with UFOCapture software. (Credit: SonataCo)
The only UFO video I have found on their website thus far is posted in the UFOCatpure sample videos. It was apparently taken on October 9, 2003. Three lights move steadily across the night sky.
The software is really cool, but it isn’t cheap. The HD version is ¥25,920 and the non-HD is ¥19,440. Before you really freak out, this amounts to much less than $20,000 US dollars. It equates to around $252 and $189 respectively. There is a free version, but the manual is in Japanese, and I am not sure what limitations it has, but rest assured I will be trying it out. If you do as well, let us know if catch something cool!
Airline pilot, Captain Jim Courant gives testimony at the Citizen Hearing on Disclosure, a weeklong hearing on unidentified flying objects and encounters with extraterrestrial life before six former members of Congress at the National Press Club Friday May 3. (Shar Adams/The Epoch Times)
WASHINGTON—Airline pilots see unidentified flying objects but very few report it because of ridicule.
According to the National Aviation Reporting Center on Anomalous Phenomena, (NARCAP) there have been over 3,500 documented sightings of “Unidentified Aerial Phenomena” by military, commercial, and civilian pilots. But Captain Jim Courant, a commercial pilot for over 31 years, says there are many more sightings that are just not reported.
“It is almost astounding how many people are in the know on this subject,” he said, speaking before the Citizens Hearing on Disclosure at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. on May 3.
Courant has been researching and studying the phenomena of UFOs for years. He has collected over 3,000 books on UFOs and extraterrestrials, and hosted a television series on the issue titled “New Perspectives” which ran for three years.
He still flies for a commercial airline and because of his exposure on television has became known as an authority on UFO’s and extraterrestrial encounters.He has been contacted, and still is, by many commercial airline and military pilots who are happy to discuss their UFO’s encounters privately but do not want to talk publicly, fearing ridicule and in some cases retaliation.
“They are afraid,” not so much about their status or their retirement benefits, but “they are more afraid for their families,” he said.
He described the experience of one pilot who was flying a 747 over the Pacific in 1980, when he came across a UFO in front of him.
“You won’t believe what we saw,” the pilot had said, according to Courant. “This thing was bigger than a 747.”
Courant said the pilot told him that when he got to his destination in Japan, he “was debriefed and told never to talk about it again.”
Courant told the hearing about his own encounter with a UFO. In 1995, he was flying near Albuquerque, New Mexico, when he and his co-pilot saw a blue green oval shape approaching from the left. “In a flash of burning white light, the object suddenly shot up at a 45 degree angle,” he told the hearing.
Four other pilots reported to the air traffic control tower that they had also seen the object.
“One pilot said it must have been a meteor,” Courant recounted, adding, “I got on and said ‘Since when does a meteor go back up?’”
When asked about his co-pilot’s reaction in a telephone conversation following the Disclosure hearing, Courant said, “He refused to discuss it and has never flown with me again.”
Courant said pilots have reported seeing a variety of craft that appear suddenly and move at speeds impossible with present technology. Reports include cigar-shaped craft, triangular craft, and some that are the size of an aircraft carrier or larger.
He says airline pilots are “very serious in their profession” and not likely to make exaggerations.
The website NARCAP, co-founded in 1999 by Dr. Richard F. Haines, a recognized specialist in UFOs and a former Chief Scientist at NASA’s Ames Research Center, has been effective at documenting sightings, but Courant says more needs to be done.
UFOsightings are only “the tip of the iceberg” in terms of what has been experienced and what is known about extraterrestrials, he said.
“There are certain things I have been privy to, but I can’t get into that here,” he told the hearing.
Courant said it was time for the United States government to come clean with what its agencies have documented and learned through decades of extraterrestrial encounters.
Airline pilots know what they have seen, he said, and should be able to talk about it without fear of ridicule.
Pilots of three passenger planes saw two UFOs above Britain’s Scientology base as they landed at Gatwick
Pilots of three passenger planes saw two UFOs above Britain’s Scientology base as they landed at Gatwick (june 10, 2013)
Three aircraft reports seeing ‘two flat silver discs’ on final approach
Objects showed up on air traffic control radar – then vanished
UFOs were just 100ft below one of the jets, a Boeing 777
They were above Scientology HQ in East Grinstead, West Sussex
Three passenger jets sighted UFOs above Britain’s Scientology headquarters on their approach to Gatwick Airport, a report has revealed.
Their pilots each saw ‘two flat, silver discs’, with some flying within 100ft.
Air traffic control then spotted six UFOs on their radars before they suddenly disappeared.
Spooky: Two UFOs, similar to the onepictured here, were spotted by jets on their approach to Gatwick, right
Eerie coincidence: The encounter happened very close to the British Scientology headquarters in East Grinstead, Werst Sussex
.A Boeing 777 was flying over the Scientology headquarters in East Grinstead minutes from touchdown when all three pilots on the flightdeck spotted the objects about 100ft below them moving slowly or stationary, according to the report.
A following Boeing 767 also spotted the two white or silver discs, which were at approximately 1,000ft above ground. An Airbus A319 then landed before the objects disappeared from ATC screens.
Believer: Tom Cruise follows the controversial church, which says aliens inhabit human bodies
The crew of the first aircraft described seeing ‘some some sort of toy’. The information was passed on to air traffic control and then to police.
Investigators offered the possibility the objects could have been balloons or kites but, with the UFOs remaining untraced, the incidents was deemed unassessable.
The encounter came the day before Scientologists, followed by actor Tom Cruise, carved a message to aliens in hills in New Mexico, America. The cult believes aliens inhabit human bodies.
The Airprox Board primarily investigates near misses between aircraft.
Here are a few more selected reports that detail real-life incursions / encounters by humanoid beings:
SMALL DEFORMED BEINGS
Location/Date: Towakomai, Hokkaido, Japan – July 1973 – 1:30 am
An anonymous 20-year old man, on night guard at a lumberyard, observed a wildly maneuvering light that approached and a point over the nearby ocean, at some 20 meters above the water and hovered, at which time a transparent tube-like extension emerged and descended to the water, apparently taking on water. The operation was accompanied by a strange “cicada-like” sound, and the tube glowed until the operation was finished. The tube withdrawn, the object then approached the witness to a point some 50 meters above his head and he could see through lighted windows around the center several figures. One was visible through a center window, and two more two windows to the right. They were “too small and deformed to be called the shadows of men.” During this the witness experienced a feeling of being bound hand and foot; he then noticed several more ball-like objects in the same vicinity; they were quickly withdrawn into the larger object and the UFO moved off rapidly into the north.
Location/Date: Adelaide, South Australia – 1969 – night
The eleven year old witness, Susan, was abducted from her bedroom by one tall entity, and a group of small, entities that entered the room via the bedroom door. The smaller beings were about 100cm tall, with large bald heads. They had large eye sockets, no visible pupils, with dark blue or black eyes, and a slit mouth, and a small nose. The taller being seemed to be in command and was about 200cm tall.
She was levitated off the bed and taken to a circular “room” where she received a medical examination whilst lying on a metal table. The next conscious recollection was of waking up in her own bed. The witness also recounts numerous lifelong episodes of such things as poltergeist activity, the sense of a presence in one house she lived in, being told she levitated whilst asleep, seeing objects such as childrens’ tricycles moving by themselves, experiencing apparitions, precognitive visions, telepathy and spirit photographs. There are also claims of unusual implants in her face; X-rays were taken by dentists of these. One shows an apparent anomaly, whilst a second more detailed one shows nothing present.

John had been watching television for some time when he glanced at the clock and noticed the time, then back to the TV. It was at that moment that he noticed odd lights in front of the hill opposite to the house. There was an object about 100 yards away at an altitude of roughly 150 feet. The object moved slowly. It had huge lighted windows, thirteen in all, along its side that appeared to be 8-ft wide and 6-ft high. Each had round corners and they were approximately six feet apart. The altitude of the object was lower than any plane that he had ever seen.
He made his way to the bedroom and retrieved a pair of binoculars. The object moved parallel to his position and towards the ocean. It was impossible to see the outline and therefore the shape of the object…a fact that bothers John to this day. The windows were, however, highly visible due to a bright light that appeared to be coming from inside though the source of the light cold not be seen. John opened the living room window and was disturbed to discover that the object did not emit any sound. Through the binoculars he could see people at the left side of the object sitting at tables that were in every window. There were also three or four people walking abreast, to and from the front and rear of the object, sometimes passing as groups without having to make room. There were tables on the other side as well with people sitting at them, mostly three to four people at a table. Everyone was dressed in the same, gray uniforms with high collars, which reminded John of something out of the American Civil War era. None of the people had any hair on their heads and none wore hats or helmets of any sort. They all appeared to be of very similar in size and slightly built. They were also very pale.
Most of the people sitting seemed to be engaged in drinking from extra large white, luminous cups. One group, however, were staring continuously down at the table as if they were watching something that could not be seen by John. By now John says he was sweating and shaking and having a hard time holding onto the binoculars. He was also having difficulty swallowing. The object then continued to move slowly out over the water, it then went towards Conception Bay, disappearing from view.

While Claudia Fuente’s sister felt a warm rush of air enter her room, Claudia left the house and suddenly found herself walking down a long hallway in which she was met by several humanoids, described as having long arms, wrinkled mouths and four fingered hands. The humanoids led her to a place resembling a hospital, removed her lower part of her garments, and placed her on a stretcher. Although Claudia was not aware that she was pregnant, as six-foot tall creature extracted a fetus through her vagina, placed it inside a square jar filled with a bubbling fluid, and walked away with it. Claudia also reported seeing other creatures with similar features but measuring only 3-feet in height. She has no doubt that she spent well over three days in that place, although only 3 hours elapsed in normal time.
When she regained consciousness, she found herself lying in the middle of the town square, where some witnesses claimed seeing a sudden burst of light. There she was found in a semi-conscious state, frightened, weeping and with wet hair.

The day after being instructed by a metallic sounding voice in her phone to go to the small local public library, Jane Paro did as she was instructed. The library was deserted except for the librarian, who struck Jane as being unusual. The woman was “dressed in an old fashioned suit…like something out of the 1940′s with a long skirt, broad shoulders, and flat old looking shoes.” She had a dark complexion, with a fine bone structure, and very black eyes and hair.
When Jane entered, the woman seemed to be expecting her and produced a book instantly from under the desk. Jane sat down at a table and began to riffle through the book, pausing on page 42. The metallic voice had told her to read that page. Suddenly the print became smaller and smaller, then larger and larger. It changed into a message about contact with earthlings. The print became very small again, and then the normal text reappeared. As soon as Jane left the library she became quite ill. In early June she began to see the “librarian” wherever she went.
Unable to sleep one night, Jane got up at the crack of dawn the following morning and went for a walk on an impulse. The dark skinned woman stepped out of an alley and approached her shyly. “Peter is coming,” she announced. Jane asked her a question and she repeated, “Peter is coming very soon.” Next a large black Cadillac came down the street and stopped next to them. It was brand new, very shiny, and polished. The driver was an olive skinned man wearing wraparound sunglasses and dressed in a neat gray suit, apparently of the same material as the woman’s clothes. The rear door opened and a man climbed out with a big grin on his face. He was about five-feet 8 inches tall, with dark skin and Oriental eyes. He had an air of someone very important and was dressed in a well-cut, expensive looking suit of the same gray material that was shiny like silk but was not silk. The stranger said his name was “Apol.”

The witness was driving on US 180 along the desert and was listening to his CB radio when the radio suddenly went silent and he vaguely noticed a patch of white light shining on a rise over the left side of the road. He then heard a voice in his head telling him to “watch out for the smoke.” Thinking it had been the CB radio he replied but there was no answer. Suddenly what looked like a huge luminous cloud of smoke began stretching across the highway ahead, it formed a solid curtain across the road.
The witness drove into the grayish-white vapor for an hour. He stopped his vehicle and walked across the road and into a ditch but was still unable to see anything. He suddenly went into a state of paralysis and sensed the approach of two persons. Each person got on either side of the witness and placed a firm grip on his forearms. The beings had long bony fingers. He was then led to a shiny metallic object, shaped like a flattened arch with rounded ends. A rectangular opening appeared on the side of the craft. Next he remembers sitting back on a chair inside the object feeling dizzy and numb. He was briefly alone then two beings entered the room. One being was a male with a round oval face with two large oval black eyes. He was five-foot tall with a thin torso and limbs. The second being was a female, similar to the male being. The witness was then led to a dimly lit room and placed in a reclining position on a chair. He felt a buzzing stimulating sensation on his facial area and felt as if a small object was being introduced into his nose. He was then released and let outside and floated horizontally towards his vehicle. He resumed the drive and the vapor-like fog quickly dissipated.
The terms alien abduction or abduction phenomenon describe “subjectively real memories of being taken secretly against one’s will by apparently nonhuman entities and subjected to complex physical and psychological procedures”. People claiming to have been abducted are usually called “abductees” or “experiencers”.
Due to a paucity of objective physical evidence, most scientists and mental health professionals dismiss the phenomenon as “deception, suggestibility (fantasy-proneness, hypnotizability, false memory syndrome), personality, sleep paralysis, psychopathology, psychodynamics [and] environmental factors”.
However, the late Prof. John E. Mack, a respected Harvard University psychiatrist, devoted a substantial amount of time to investigating such cases and eventually concluded that the only phenomenon in psychiatry that adequately explained the patients’ symptoms in several of the most compelling cases was posttraumatic stress disorder. As he noted at the time, this would imply that the patient genuinely believed that the remembered frightening incident had really occurred.
Skeptic Robert Sheaffer sees similarity between the aliens depicted in early science fiction films, in particular, Invaders From Mars, and some of those reported to have actually abducted people.
Typical claims involve being subjected to a forced medical examination that emphasizes their reproductive system. Abductees sometimes claim to have been warned against environmental abuse and the dangers of nuclear weapons. While many of these claimed encounters are described as terrifying, some have been viewed as pleasurable or transformative.
Antônio Vilas-Boas (1934–1991) was a Brazilian farmer who claimed to have been abducted by extraterrestrials in 1957. Though similar stories had circulated for years beforehand, Vilas Boas’ claims were among the first alien abduction stories to receive wide attention
The first alleged American alien abduction claim to be widely publicized was the Betty and Barney Hill abduction in 1961. Reports of the abduction phenomenon have been made around the world, but are most common in English speaking countries, especially the United States. The contents of the abduction narrative often seem to vary with the home culture of the alleged abductee

Travis Walton (born February 10, 1953) is an American logger who was allegedly abducted by a UFO on November 5, 1975, while working with a logging crew in the Apache-Sitgreaves National Forest in Arizona. Walton could not be found, but reappeared after a five-day search.
The Walton case received mainstream publicity and remains one of the best-known instances of alleged alien abduction. UFO historian Jerome Clark writes that “Few abduction reports have generated as much controversy” as the Walton case. It is furthermore one of the very few alleged alien abduction cases with some corroborative eyewitnesses, and one of few alleged abduction cases where the time allegedly spent in the custody of aliens plays a rather minor role in the overall account.
UFO researchers Jenny Randles and Peter Houghe write that “Neither before or since has an abduction story begun in the manner related by Walton and his coworkers. Furthermore, the Walton case is singular in that the victim vanished for days on end with police squads out searching … it is an atypical ‘Close Encounter: Fourth Kind’ … which bucks the trend so much that it worried some investigators; others defend it staunchly

January 20 1988 was the day that the Knowles family and their two dogs had an unexplainable experience whilst travelling across the Nullarbor Plain in the early hours of the morning. At about 4.00am, Faye Knowles and her sons Patrick, 24, Sean, 21, and Wayne 18 were between Madura and Mundrabilla with Sean driving and Patrick next to him in the front seat when a bright light was seen ahead of them. Sean thought the light strange and asked his brother if he thought it was a spaceship. This idea was rejected by his brother, but Sean’s interest was piqued and he sped the car up in order to catch up to the object and get a closer look. At about 20 metres from the object the family say they were confronted with a white blinding light that moved along in front of their moving vehicle. It was about 1 metre wide and described as a slightly angular egg in an egg-cup shape with a yellow centre. The object, which at first appeared to be either on the ground or immediately above it then began to move back and forth. Sean swerved the car to the opposite side of the road to avoid a collision with the object, but then nearly collided with a station wagon towing a caravan coming in the other direction. (The occupants of this second car have never come forward) The object then circled around to the right side of their car and appeared to give chase to the second vehicle towing the caravan. The Knowles made at 2 u-turns at this point, the first to give chase to the object, and the second to abandon this idea as they had grown frightened. They had at this point gained the idea that the object was after them. At some point the family felt that the UFO had returned and had landed on their vehicle. They heard a clunking sound and felt that the car was being pushed down by a weight that rested on top of it. By now the family was understandably frightened, and the following events are difficult to unravel in retrospect. The family believed that the car was lifted above the road, though none of them were able to estimate for how long or how high. Mrs Knowles wound down a rear window and reached for the roof. She felt something soft and rubbery that was hot but did not burn her hand, and when she brought her hand back into the car she found it covered in a blackish dust. This event caused a panic in the rest of the family. Patrick wound down his Window, only to be covered in the fine dust, which was accompanied by a foul smell that was likened to dead bodies. A high-pitched sound was then heard, which sent the dogs into a frenzy. The family became disoriented and felt that their voices had become slower, and lower in pitch. They believed at this point that they were going to die. Patrick said that he felt that his ‘brain was being sucked out’, and Mrs Knowles likened it to having something ‘going into our heads’.
A while later, the family felt the car forced back down onto the road, bursting the rear right tyre. Sean brought the car to a sudden stop and then blacked out. The family left the car hurriedly and hid in some bushes by the side of the road. They remained there for 15 minutes before changing the tyre and continuing on to the nearest town. Unknown to the Knowles’, a truck driver, Mr Graham Henley also saw, at the same time and in the same area, a strange light in his rear view mirror. He described as being like a strong spotlight and like a ‘big fried egg hung upside down”. He kept the object in view for 5 minutes and did not see any car headlights beneath it. Shortly after Henley pulled into Mundrabilla, he saw the Knowles’ car arrive, and was confronted by the frightened family all trying to describe their experience. He looked over their car and confirmed the presence of black ash in various areas, both inside and on the exterior of the vehicle, and likened it to fine silicon sand with a burnt odour to it. He also noted four indents in the roof of the car and the damaged tyre. Henley and two of his friends also surveyed the scene of the incident, finding skid marks, footprints and tread tracks that they felt confirmed the Knowles account of their incident. The family had by this time arrived at Ceduna and been interviewed by the police there, who confirmed that the family were visibly shaken. They also reconfirmed the presence of the four dents and the fine dust. UFO Research South Australia was contacted and arrangements were made for the Knowles’ to continue to Adelaide for further investigation. Keith Basterfield was at this stage brought into the investigation, and he stated that it “appeared to be an extraordinary example of a close encounter that had left physical traces.” However, owing to the story reaching the media, serious investigation became obstructed by chequebook journalism, with investigators needing to mediate with a television station to be able to talk to the Knowles’. The TV station did, however, commission a laboratory investigation of the vehicle, which concluded that ‘no significant dust was observed on the vehicle as presented for inspection’. Ufo researchers did manage to obtain samples themselves, which they forwarded to Dr Richard Haines, a NASA scientist at the time, who concluded that the dust taken from the interior of the car was different to the dust sampled from the exterior. Further tests by different analysts have provided no evidence of it being alien or unusual.
Unfortunately none of this is conclusive. There were other UFO reports in the same area at the same time, which tends to imply that something unusual occurred. The only conclusion we can safely come to though, is that something happened, and that the family witnessed an unusual light and were extremely frightened by its effects. All we have is an interesting story, and still no clear idea of exactly what happened. – UFO Research Queensland (Australia)
Location: Taylor Township, Iowa Date: February 1 1876 Time: early morning
It is well known that a number of the best aeronauts in France have been at work for some time endeavoring to perfect an airship by which aerial navigation would be made as safe, and much more speedy, than water navigation. It may be that their labors have been at last crowned with success,… and that the almost incredible story related below is a fact, and the airship reported to have been seen yesterday morning in Taylor Township, possibly, the successful invention on a trial rip around the world. As Mr. Randolph Seegeese went out about daylight yesterday morning to attend to his stock, he was terribly frightened and astonished to hear a voice issue from the gray twilight in the early dawn above him and inquiring in broken English, “Say my friend, what State is this?” Mr. Seegeese is a good Catholic, and, first taking time to devoutly cross himself, he looked up and saw what almost struck him dumb with wonder and surprise. For, poised in the air, not more than one hundred feet over his head, was an immense balloon, or number of balloons, supporting a regular ship or boat that must have been at least seventy or eighty feet in length. He could also distinguish the heads of several people bending over the sides of the remarkable craft, and presently the voice again hailed with the inquiry, “Will you please, tell us, sir what State this is?” By this time Mr. Seegeese had recovered enough in self-possession to answer, “Iowa.” “What city is that over there?” again asked his interrogator, nodding his head towards the south. “Marshalltown,” responded Mr. Seegeese. ““Where is the Missouri River?” was the next question. “You are about half way between the Missouri and the Mississippi Rivers now,” answered Mr. S. “Oui, thank you!” said the voice. A moment after some order was given in a language which Mr. Seegeese did not understand and the huge canvas paddle-wheels, like the arms of an old-fashioned, windmill, slowly revolved, and the monster silently yet, rapidly ascended, and bore off in a westerly direction. Mr. Seegeese said it was hardly light enough for him to see this wonderful machine sufficiently plain to attempt a thorough description of it. there were three immense balloons, the largest above the other two, which were rigged quite close to the boat—apparently a wooden structure built after a ship’s model, and seventy or eighty feed in length by sixteen or twenty feet wide amidships. The vessel was also ten or fifteen feet deep, and, from what he supposed to be the cabin windows in the stern, lights were shining brightly. There were huge paddle-wheels or arms, attached to each side of the ship, that appeared to propel it in any direction desired by those navigating this most singular of all remarkable craft. From behind, an enormous rudder, also of canvas, fastened in a light frame, extended fully forty feet, he is quite certain. This, also, as the strange ship, bore away to the westward, revolved rapidly. That she was operated by steam power, he knows, for he plainly heard the hiss of escaping vapor as the machine, ship, balloon, or whatever it may be called, stood nearly stationary in the air, a hundred feet or less above his head. Just as the aerial vessel moved off, a flask was thrown over the side, which fell near him. Mr. Seegeese hastened to pick it up, hoping that it might contain some account or clue to the mysterious voyagers—where they came from, where they were going, or, to state it in the emphatic language of Mr. Seegeese, “who the devil they were, anyway, sailing around in the clouds at daylight, frightening honest people out of their wits.” The flask Mr. Seegeese brought in the city with him yesterday afternoon, and it is now on exhibition at the Marshalltown Iowa Times office. It is evidently of foreign manufacture, and entirely empty—worse luck! There was a peculiarly pungent odor about it, however, which experts, who examined it this morning, pronounced to have been produced by the presence of ‘absinthe’—a liquor in very common use in France. The fact of its French origin is also conclusively proven by a stamp on the bottom of it containing the words “Louis de Berneau, Rue de Kremlin, Paris.”

A couple was driving in far western Dade County in the rural areas where strawberries and tomatoes are grown. They were looking at the last field, a 4 or 5 acre patch of planted strawberries, with a small house and barn towards the back, and beyond that the Everglades. They pulled to the side of the ro…ad to observe a bright light that was approaching silently from the WNW. It was very bright. It finally came to a stop and hovered over the farm house. With a sharp hissing noise, a beam of light shone directly on the roof of the house for a few seconds, and then disappeared. At this point, once their eyes had adjusted to the intense glare, they could see black spots (maybe windows?) along the widest point of the oval. Suddenly there was a strange distortion developing in the sky over the house as the object became darker and appeared to shrink in on itself. It was a kind of swirling distortion that appeared to increase in size and seemed even to distort the sunlight and clouds as it did, and the object became even darker and smaller. Then there was an audible, low pitched popping sound, almost like one can make by pulling a finger out of one’s puckered mouth and the object disappeared altogether. The distortion effect subsided, and then disappeared after a few seconds more. They then approached the house by passing through the gate and going up the driveway, and detected a strong smell of ozone, like from a strong electrical gadget, as well as an organic kind of repugnant odor. They looked up at one of the windows and saw a grayish reptilian being staring at them. Terrified they made a U-turn right through a flower field and left the area.
On Mar. 10, 2014 Steve Douglass and Dean Muskett took the famous photographs of three mysterious planes flying at very high altitude over Amarillo, Texas.
The images they took showed what looked like an almost boomerang shaped plane, equipped with two engines (or at least two exhaust nozzles).
Noteworthy, something quite similar was spotted in February this year in Wichita, Kansas.
As reported by KSN, Jeff Templin, an amateur photographer who was taking pictures of wildlife back in February, shot a silent triangular shaped plane leaving what looked like an unusual contrail.
Is this the same plane spotted over Texas by Douglass and Muskett or is it just a B-2?
Provided it is really a new black project, there are several theories about the role of the mysterious triangular/boomerang shaped plane: some believe it could be an RQ-180 stealth drone or, more likely, a prototype of the American next generation LRSB (long range strike bomber).
Updated: user Dayanx on Reddit, filtered the image and highlighted the possible shape of the aircraft. Don’t you think it’s quite similar to the shape I created with Ugo Crisponi from the first blurry images taken at Amarillo?
Hi everyone, I just wanted to share some experiences and see if anyone has experienced anything similar somewhere they have worked. I’m going to apologize in advance for how long this might be!
In 2012 my boss acquired a new building that she renovated and turned into a business. The building itself is pretty old for the area I live in. The first half was built in 1913 and was used as a boarding house for traveling rubber workers and the building was expanded in the 1920s. It’s always been a sort of restaurant/bar and for a long time the upstairs was one of the longest running brothels in the area.
When my boss bought the property she mentioned that it was haunted. I thought it was cool, but I wasn’t expecting anything to happen, so of course the first time I was in the building something did. I was upstairs alone (it’s two floors and a basement) cleaning out one of the offices and I heard footsteps down the hall. The floor is old wood and creaks when you walk on it. I looked out into the hallway and saw nothing, but heard the footsteps walking away from me.
For fun in April of 2013 my boss had me organize a paranormal investigation with a local paranormal group who’d actually done an investigation a few years previous and found some evidence. We invited them back and stayed the night and did a bonafide paranormal investigation and they let my boss and my co-worker (who’s a total skeptic) join them. Nothing really happened while we were there, but when they were packing up their gear two investigators said they each saw two different apparitions upstairs.
Fast Forward to the end of 2013 and the renovations are done on the first floor and basement. The contractors told me a few stories of hearing footsteps, tools being moved, but that’s about it.
I’ve been in the building pretty much once a week, if not more, since November and when the renovations are finished upstairs my office will be relocated there. I’ve had a few experiences and they seem to be getting more frequent. When I’m downstairs sitting at the bar I’ve heard footsteps upstairs when I know there’s no one up there and I’m not the only one who’s heard that.
A few weeks ago I was sitting at the bar while my boss was having a meeting at the other end. I was just on my laptop reading emails when I felt something stinging on my arm. I looked down at my wrist and there were three scratches that looked like a cat scratch (I don’t have a cat). I was alarmed and that was the first time I was genuinely freaked out. The mark stuck around most of the day and gone the next. I tried to recreate it, but I couldn’t. A couple days later I was talking to a couple of people that work at the restaurant at night and I told them what happened and showed them the picture I took on my phone and apparently this had happened to another person on the back of his neck.
After that incident I’ve been a little weary of the building. This morning I was in the building alone and getting something from behind the bar. I heard what sounded like someone pushing on the metal bar that opens the door. I thought it was my skeptic co-worker messing with me, but he was at another building. It just about gave me a heart attack and I may have left the building for a little bit and waited for the cleaning crew to show up so I wouldn’t be alone.
Now my boss and I are trying to figure out what’s with the sudden up rise in paranormal activity in the building. All renovation has been suspended since November, so it’s not that. My theory is the weather’s nicer and the ghosts are waking up from hibernation.

Geneseo, IL – 6/1958 – unedited: I was approximately 12 years old living on a farm. My brothers and sister all slept in the basement in different rooms. One night I awoke in a strange room which was approx. 10′X10′ with a two windows and “door” in one wall below which was a metal bench attached to the wall.There were really two windows with the door between them and two benches. The windows were slanted outward and into a hall way which appeared to be about four or five feet wide. In the room in which I found myself was a man, about 25 to 30 years old sitting on the metal bench with his legs spread and his head bent down looking between his legs at the floor. The door did not have a handle or means to open the door from what I could see or figure out. I was walking around the room trying to find some way which to get out of it thinking that I must be sleeping and dreaming as I did so and I would wake soon. About the time I turned toward the man and was getting ready to ask him why he was just sitting there a being which was so tall its head almost rubbed the ceiling walked past the window. The being was covered with reddish orange hair and was not wearing anything else. I was so afraid that I almost got sick however I though that if I was afaid maybe I could “attack” or at least appear to be dangerous so that the being would not come into the room. I jumped onto the bench then stepped onto the ledge in which the window was inset and started growling, scratching & pounding on the glass in an effort to show the being how “dangerous” I was. All the time while I was doing this the man in the room with me never moved or made a sound. The being walking past the window without even turning to look at me and I was so happy. I got down off the window frame and sat down on the bench. I do not recall anything after that point until I awoke in my bed at about 5 AM when it was time to get up and do the morning chores. I do not know who the man was, I had never seen him before nor did I ever recall seeing him again. I do not recall being taken to the craft nor returned from the craft to home. I do recall that I was wearing only my underpants, my normal sleeping wear while the man was wearing jeans and a plaid shirt. – MUFON CMS
Geoengineering schemes, even serious ones, often seem a little wacky. But the latest tops them all: a pitch by a cosmetics company to brighten the surface of the moon.
No, they don’t plan to slather on a little concealer. According to the company’s think-tank Foreo Institute, the idea is to use materials already on the moon to lighten its surface. The goal is to reflect slightly more sunlight onto Earth, making the night sky brighter. A brighter night sky would mean less need for streetlights, which could potentially translate to less electricity usage and thus fewer globe-warming carbon emissions, company representatives say.
“We want to raise public awareness about the project and generate consciousness about the global energy crisis,” said Paul Peros, CEO of Foreo.
The proposal has a hint of “marketing scheme” to it, but precisely why the Sweden-based cosmetics company came up with this idea remains unclear. When asked, a company representative told Live Science that Foreo is an “innovation company” that engages with experts from diverse fields. Nevertheless, scientists are skeptical.
“Making the moon brighter is not something I’ve ever heard of in the geoengineering literature,” said Ben Kravitz, a postdoctoral researcher in the atmospheric sciences and global change division of Pacific Northwest National Laboratory. Read more on Live Science
Sur Mars, les colons pourront faire pousser des plantes
Sur Mars, les colons pourront faire pousser des plantes
Une colonie humaine permanente sur la Lune et plus encore sur Mars devra être autosuffisante. Un chercheur néerlandais de l'université de Wageningen poursuit des études qui tendent à prouver que des plantes pourront être cultivées dans le sol martien par les membres de Mars One.
L’exploration de Mars fait rêver les amateurs de science-fiction depuis longtemps. Nourries par les romans d’Arthur Clarke ou de Ray Bradbury, plusieurs sont prêts à embarquer dans le projet de colonisation de la Planète rouge baptisé Mars One. Mais pour que ce projet réussisse, il faudrait que les colons puissent produire leur nourriture sur place. Cela n’a rien d’évident. Dans l’idéal pour qu’une base martienne soit vraiment autosuffisante et offre des conditions psychologiques permettant à des colons permanents de vivre sur Mars et de l’explorer, il faudrait probablement construire sur place l’équivalent de Biosphère 2.
Pour la production de la nourriture, l’écologiste Wieger Wamelink de l’université Wageningen cherche une solution à ce problème en tentant de faire pousser des plantes dans un sol martien reconstitué sur Terre. C’est la Nasa qui a fourni la recette de ce sol à partir de ce que l’on sait de sa composition sur Mars. Le roverCuriosity a ainsi montré que ce sol ressemblait beaucoup à celui provenant de l’altération des basaltes à Hawaï. Il a donc servi de base à la fabrication d'un sol martien artificiel.
Wamelink a conduit des tests pendant 50 jours avec 14 variétés de plantes dans ce sol martien artificiel. « Je m'attendais à ce que le processus de germination s’effectue sans problème, mais je pensais que les plantes mourraient en raison d'un manque de nutriments » explique le chercheur. Cependant, l'analyse du sol martien avait montré qu’il contient plus de nutriments que prévu. En plus du phosphore et des oxydes de fer, on y trouve de l'azote, un nutriment essentiel pour les plantes. La croissance des plantes n’a finalement pas posé de problème et certaines ont même fleuri.
Le botaniste ne cache pas malgré tout que faire pousser des plantes sur Mars ne va pas de soi. La faible gravité de la planète pose des problèmes que l’on n’imaginerait pas naïvement. Cette faible gravité modifie les échanges de gaz carbonique et d’oxygène des plantes ainsi que les transferts d’eau. Il en résulte que les plantes doivent croître plus lentement et perdre moins d’eau par évaporation. Bien sûr, il y a aussi le problème de l’ensoleillement qui est bien plus faible que sur Terre. On peut le résoudre en utilisant des lampes Led alimentées par des panneaux solaires.
Mais Wamelink est confiant. Pour lui, d’ici dix ans, les membres de son université, parmi lesquels figure son collègue Leo Marcelis, l’un des conseillers du projet Mars One, auront développé un système complet permettant de faire pousser des fruits et des légumes sur Mars.
"One lowlight came along in December 1974 when Dickinson, as editor, penned a story that seriously examined the supposed UFO-abduction story of Betty and Barney Hill in “The Zeta Reticuli Incident.” The Hills had allegedly drawn a star map from memory based on seeing our solar system from the perspective of this nearby star, Zeta Reticuli. The fact that the magazine covered such an absurd thing set back the credibility of the title for a while, and Dickinson left in mid-1975. (Staff members at the magazine later referred to this legendary story as “The Zeta Ridiculi Incident.”)"
"Ithink that there are probably many advanced civilizations within our local neighborhood on planets around some of the 2300 stars within 54 light years, especially the 46 that are very similar to the sun. The driving fact here is that we have only had fancy technology for perhaps 100 years. But the earth is about 4.5 billion years old and has been suitable for life for well over a billion years."
"Just down the street, 39.4 light years away, we find a pair of sun-like stars, Zeta 1 and Zeta 2 Reticuli. These are only an 1/8 of a light year apart from each other, but are a billion years older than the sun. In other words, there has been a great deal of time for other civilizations to establish themselves. Having an easily observable neighbor nearby would provide far more incentive for the development of interstellar travel than we have out here in the boondocks. My view is, per a fine analogy from physicist Beatriz Gabo Rivera, that we are like the gorillas in a nature preserve in Africa who know nothing about what is going on outside the preserve. I think aliens have been traipsing around the neighborhood for a very long time indeed. I think it is hilarious that Dr. Seth Shostak, one of the noisier SETI guys, says there is nobody at ZR 1 or ZR 2, because they were listened to by a Southern Radio Observatory 10 years ago. One would think he knows what equipment and frequency alien communicators way ahead of us would use, and that they are trying to attract our attention, which is totally absurd."
"Chris Gibson has been described as one of the world’s experts in aircraft recognition, and in international recognition tournaments where a long distance shot of an aircraft would be flashed on a screen for a fraction of a second. At the time of the sighting, he was writing an aircraft recognition manual."
"In August 1989, Chris Gibson, a Scottish oil-exploration engineer and, at the time, a member of the British Royal Observer Corps (ROC), was working on the oil rig Galveston Key in the North Sea when he noticed an aircraft in the shape of a pure isoceles triangle refuelling from a KC-135 Stratotanker alongside two F-111s.
The unknown aircraft, cruising in a formation northward through Air-to-Air Refuelling Area (AARA) 6A, is what people have come to believe, is the mysterious Aurora hypersonic spyplane. Another possible aircraft, which could have been seen over the North Sea however, is Northrop's A-17 stealth attack plane. Chris Gibson's observation of the mysterious flying triangle is often cited by UFO researchers when the subject of Aurora rises. Below, Chris Gibson explains precisely what happened, as well as giving an insight into himself."
Hi Lon, I would like to relay an experience I had back in the summer of 2007. To keep this part brief, I was working at a resort 30 mins from Pine Bush, NY. A security guard and myself watched about 8 amber colored diamond shaped lights from the rooftop of the resort. The lights were massive. This took place around 9:30 pm. that night. I reported it on the National UFO Report Center website.
The next day while I was working, I heard a helicopter coming towards the building. I went outside to see it cause it sounded really low. When I got out front, there was a black helicopter hanging above the main entrance. It then went over the building towards the back where there is a small pond. I ran through the building to the back to get a better look. When I burst through the door, the helicopter was hovering about 10 ft above the pond. This thing was a matte black color with no marking whatsoever. It sort of looked like an Apache (Boeing AH-64 Apache helicopter). The thing that made me uneasy was that while I was looking at the helicopter, I could see the pilot. He was in all black with a black helmet and visor, the reason I could tell is because he was staring right at me. That part of his face I could see was a pasty pale color. He stared at me for about 30 seconds then the helicopter lifted up and left towards the east. The weirdest thing was that after it lifted off and went over the building, I could not her the blades anymore. It’s like it wasn’t even there. I’ve seen numerous UFOs in my area but that was the first time I’ve seen that and had a feeling of dread. Thanks for all you do with your site. JW
