Even though many folks may somewhat feel that they cannot trust our government on many (or, most) issues, at least on this particular issue, it is my feeling that the White House (office of Science and Technology Policy), to the best of its knowledge, is telling the truth when it stated (in 2011):
“The U.S. government has no evidence that any life exists outside ourplanet, or that an extraterrestrial presence has contacted or engaged anymember of the human race.In addition, there is no credible information to suggest that any evidenceis being hidden from the public's eye. Many scientists and mathematicians have looked with a statistical mindsetat the question of whether life likely exists beyond Earth and have come tothe conclusion that the odds are pretty high that somewhere among thetrillions and trillions of stars in the universe there is a planet other than ours that is home to life.Many have also noted, however, that the odds of us making contact with anyof them – especially any intelligent ones – are extremely small, given the distances involved.But that's all statistics and speculation.The fact is: WE HAVE NO CREDIBLE EVIDENCE OF EXTRATERRESTRIAL PRESENCE HERE ON EARTH”.
As far as the UFO phenomenon is concerned, we still do not know its true nature. The phenomenon “seems” to be real.
However, to equate it unequivocally with physical extraterrestrialvisitation borders on pseudoscience and is no different from a religious belief. However, religion is religion and science is science. There is nothing wrong in having a religious belief, since it is an intrinsic part of human nature. I, for one, am a strong believer in the existence of God, His creation and His divine plan for our life.
Dr. Jacques Vallee suggested that “there is a spiritual component…the UFO phenomenon is controlled by a nonhuman sort of consciousness”. But he also proposed the possibility that “the UFO phenomenon could even be material photoplasmic projections of the collective unconscious of thehuman family”. But the bottom line is we still do not know.
While suggesting that the government has been just as perplexed by this phenomenon as a segment of the public, I agree totally with Col. John Alexander that there has never been any intentional “cover-up” of this phenomenon.
I also totally agree with my colleague, Tomas Scolarici who said: “The UFO phenomenon is not a threat to our security. The same phenomenon neither was a threat for the Sumerians or Romans, or Indians. There is no such thing as a cover-up, and the authorities know as little about the nature of the UFO phenomenon as ourselves.”
(Despite the often reported “mischievous”, “oppressive”, “tricky”, “deceptive” nature of the phenomenon, in addition to their rather “primitive” modus operandi, such as their alleged “abductions” of humans, definitely not a sign of any physical visitation of highly advanced, intelligent civilizations from outer space……in fact, it almost seems to me that it all tantamounts to “demonic activity” of some kind and, if so, the government would not touch it with a 10 foot pole!! ).
“Many UFO reports seem to pertain more to accounts of poltergeist and….psychic manifestations….I cannot accept the 'obvious' explanations of UFOs as visitors from outer space” – Dr. J. Allen Hynek, Scientific Advisor to the U.S. Air Force.
“An impressive parallel can be made between UFO occupants and the popular conception of demons” -Dr. Jacques Vallee, Astrophysicist, Author and Advisor to the U.S. Air Force.
“Many of the UFO reports now being published in the popular press recount alleged incidents that are strikingly similar to demonic possession and psychic phenomenon that have long been known to theologians and
parapsychologists” – Lynn E. Catoe, Library of Congress Senior Bibliographer.
Perhaps these could be the reasons why the government cannot officiallymake any comments, aside from the likelihood that they are unwilling tomake any statement that goes beyond our present knowledge of empirical
science, going into such areas as “paranormal phenomena” and “religiousmanifestations” (including “beliefs”).
Could the phenomenon be a momentary, holographic intrusion from some typeof a “parallel intelligence”?
Could it be some form of “time-slip”, interdimensional “accident”?
We just don't have the answers.
And the government is not in the business of going into these areas!
Could the entire phenomenon be some form of religious manifestations or religious manipulations by a power which we cannot comprehend simply by physical pursuit, a power which apparently is capable of presenting an “instant” (but only temporay) “appearance” or “illusion” of being a physical phenomenon to the observer?
If so, then the government will never make any statement of that nature.
That is not their business!
By the way, here is a quote from the late Carl Sagan on UFOs: “No amount of anecdotal evidence, unsubstantiated by physical evidence, is worth a single substantive bit of physical evidence. A million reports that the Earth is flat has no veridical value on the shape of the Earth”.
Also, one of the most brilliant minds of our time, Stephen Hawking, said:
“No aliens have ever come to Earth in UFOs”.
Here is my bottom line to all this:
THERE IS NO SINGLE, PHYSICAL, TANGIBLE, SOLID, AS WELL AS IRREFUTABLE DOCUMENTARY EVIDENCE WHATSOEVER THAT PHYSICAL EXTRATERRESTRIAL ALIENS IN PHYSICAL EXTRATERRESTRIAL SPACECRAFT HAVE EVER VISITED (OR, ARE VISITNG) OUR EARTH.
As my son and I were walking Stella, our dog by the River Yare, and having sat down on the seat overlooking the river situated south of Bland Road, Norwich, Norfolk, UK, we were commenting on the fighter jets roaring above our heads at great height. They looked very small when out of the white clouds. I said they were not playing war games, but chasing a UFO radar contact for I knew from previous experiences how to tell the difference. We watched a fighter plane go into a great pulled about fluffy white cloud that was unlike the other clouds and I said to my son to watch for a UFO to come out of the other end of it.
There was a short gap between that cloud and the next and as we watched it a craft of huge size materialized within the gap. It was not moving but just hovering. It was in a shape hard to describe as it seemed that the outer edge was not so visible, but it was long like a cigar and light metallic green in colour with two bars or rails running along ether side underneath that shone a brighter metallic green. After around ten seconds or so it dematerialized and a jet fighter came out of the cloud, which was tiny like a fly in comparison to the UFO. We could hear the jets after burners and see them at times going extremely fast, then slow right down and turn as if trying to find it once again. I got the impression that the UFO was kind of playing games with them. The time of the sighting was 14:20 and the craft was almost overhead and slightly to the east.
I have watched something like this now three times from or near my home, and over the twenty years I have lived here I have seen a few good sightings. Once one has seen them, it becomes a habit to keep an eye on the sky and to learn how to look. I am sure the RAF would just say what they always say, that they were just playing war games or practicing. However, all three times I have seen these happenings it was over built up areas and the flying was frantic. I’m afraid that I did not have the time or togetherness to get my phone out and take a video or photo, for if I had tried to do that I would have missed the sighing. Next time perhaps!
Lubbock, TX - 5/22/2014 - unedited:I was sitting in a dark room looking out into the kitchen area. It was early morning. I suddenly saw something very tall and white move across the kitchen almost in an stroll through the house like it owned the house. It went past the door so I didn't get a good look but I knew automatically it wasn't human. I froze scared to death. My husband and my young daughter were in the living room just about 10 steps behind this creature. It was invisible. Not only invisible but you couldn't hear it moving around, which without some sort of help would be impossible. The creature was at least a little over 6 ft tall if not taller because my first thought when it went by was to make myself believe it was my husband walking over to the kitchen area. It was a wonderful wish but when I finally got my nerve to get up and walk I realized I was right.
The only reason I know it was invisible was because its been here. You could almost feel it knew the house and us more then anything, which is very very disturbing. I could tell from the quick look I barely got that the creature didn't seem to have an ounce of fat on it's body, very very strong looking, muscles, but thin. Lith like. Its body looks like it was covered by some sort of body suit it looked like pale skin. I believe it did not know I saw it and I strongly believe the only reason I saw it was the way the light was shining in the house. I think all the different windows, time of day and the suddenly reflection and the fact I was sitting in a dark room looking out into the dinning room that caused me to be able to see through the cloak it was using. It was headed to the window as if to look out through it in to the outside. I had a since that it was bored and waiting for something.
My feelings. I'm freakin scared to death. I can't tell you how for the first two months I screamed in the car and cried. I had a since that if or when this or these things wanted to kill us there's nothing..nothing we can do. No gun, no knife, no bomb, no weapon...their faster, stronger, smarter..we are nothing. I felt we were cattle to be harvested for food later and as a mother I had a horrible since of hopelessness. I've never in my life had such hopelessness. There's no place to go, no place to hide..nothing..nothing you can do. I hate the feeling. When it happened I swallowed my pride, walked into the kitchen, even though I knew that being was around there, got some coffee and walked into the living room. Looked at my husband and daughter and told them I loved them and watched TV.
I tried contacting a scientist shortly after it happened. I even got out the measuring tape and measured. I figured with his brains maybe the measurements might help our scientist figure out how to cloak or break cloaks or invisible technology. I remember I labeled his e-mail "code black" in hopes to get his attention..but didn't. I erased mine feeling like there's no one else I can go to.
I have not told anyone, not even my husband. I can't. I feel if I utter the words out loud whom ever I tell the story to will die. The since of this is utterly powerful...horribly powerful at least at first. After about a month or so I had two more strange things happen. I never saw the creature again but I did see on two seperate occassions silver balloon like objects in the bed room.
The main one I remember was I woke up, as I always do, around 3:30am and I thought I heard something. Still worried about being slaughtered like a cow for food or killed I stayed still and glanced around the room. I didn't want anything to know I was awake yet. I could feel myself sweat and I had to tell myself to take slow steady breaths to make it look like I was still asleep. I suddenly heard something sliding against the ceiling of the room. I remember my heart was pounding and I could still hearing the steady breathing of my husband next to me sound asleep. The ceiling fan was going and I had the covers pulled up around me still. The sliding was approaching me, then suddenly I caught sight of a silver balloon sliding across the ceiling with it's tail hanging down. I almost laughed outloud. I watched it as it slide around the room and over me slowely thinking how annoying it was and how I'm so glad it was just a balloon. I closed my eyes laughing at myself thinking I'm so silly I'm just being paranoid. I remember thinking I need to tell my daughter not to put her balloon in the room, it could get the tail hung up in the ceiling fan. Suddenly my heart stopped. My daughter doesn't have a balloon, she hadn't had one in months...and never a silverish one..and this one looked metalic though it was hard to see in the darkness. My eyes flew open...and yes it was still there..I could still hear it slide against the ceiling as it tail hung down. "make it a balloon, make it a balloon..it's your kids balloon" I wanted to believe it..so bad! I wanted to cry to scream..I stayed very still. "breath normal, don't move, don't open your eyes to far, don't freak out, don't let it know your awake.." I should have know..any balloon would have been caught up into the ceiling fan, at least the string. this one went over us and to the side of the wall as if it was moved by remote. Suddenly it just slowly started disappearing..and then it was gone. I saw it one other time in the room while we were asleep...this time with a longer string...and it disappeared even faster. The metallic like balloon shaped thing didn't make since to me, because if the creature could keep sound from happening on him, why wouldn't he make his gadgets sound proof also?
So I went into a depression. Didn't know what life was. Couldn't tell anyone anything verbally without giving them some type of death wish....then one day I'm fine. It's strange. I don't mind if the creatures here or if he's not. I feel like I should protect him or them. I feel like if they want to communicate they can, if not I'm fine. I feel like I want to help them. I'm confused about these feelings because I feel like I could love them, protect them..but I still feel if I utter a word verbally and they find out that person will die.
I've searched everywhere for someone else to have the same type of experience. But it seems most everyone else is little gray people or short creatures. Mine are at least 6 feet tall but I'm going to go out on a limb and say 6'5 at least. Pale suits, have no idea if that was skin or not..never got to see the face..heck he might have had a dog face or no face...but I feel from the legs I saw and torso for the few seconds I saw it was human like.
I don't mind protecting something but I want to make sure it's not a false since of protection because my first feelings for the first couple of months was "we are all going to die". I just don't know...but since I can't utter a word to have someone talk to me...thank you for letting me write it down. If you investigators ever call me to talk to me about this..I don't know if I can. I'll answer any questions you have in writing, even let you come measure stuff, but talking...If I say something outloud and suddenly one of you dies...I'd feel like I did it. Because I've been warned. - MUFON CMS
I've always been an “interested skeptic” when it comes to ghosts and other paranormal things. And to be honest I always thought my parents felt the same way. Back when I was younger my siblings and I liked to watch Ghost Hunters or similar shows after dinner and every once in a while my parents would join us. Yes I’m sure a lot of that stuff is fake but it was still entertaining. Well one day after an episode we were all watching together asked my dad if he ever had a paranormal experience or seen a ghost. My parents looked at each other and my dad said, “Yeah I have, a little after you were born.” You can normally tell when my dad is messing around but this was different. His tone was much more serious than when we were talking before. Naturally I needed to know more so I prodded and eventually he told us his story.
When my Great Grandfather immigrated to the US before World War II, he started lumber business and my family has owned this business for three generations. By the time my dad became a co-owner with my Grandpa, my Great Grandmother passed away and my Great Grandfather decided to retire because it became too hard to cope with work and the loss especially at his age. About a year after his retirement while my mother was pregnant with me, my Great Grandfather’s health began deteriorating drastically. He didn't want to leave his house while he was sick so he stayed home and hired people to look after him. I should also mention that he did very well financially throughout his life and he had a large family of 9 children, so he owned a big house. I've never seen the house myself but my parents described it as a big beautiful old-style home that was almost like a mini-mansion.
My Great Grandfather was very close with dad and during his last weeks my dad visited him almost every day and sometimes with my mom. These were sad visits but he was a nice man and the company really made him happy. He passed away during the last week of February and I was born almost a week later in March. Shortly after I was born it was decided by my family that his house would be sold and my parents volunteered to be caretakers until someone bought it. They were house hunting anyway and no one else wanted to take the time to move in so they figured why not? After 2 or 3 months my parents moved out of their small apartment with me and moved into the mini-mansion.
The first days were very eerie and surreal just because of the sheer emptiness of the house. The vastness and of it would often make them feel uneasy and they would find themselves looking over their shoulders in the bigger rooms and hallways. After a couple days exploring and settling in my parents decided to stay in a guest room next to the master bedroom. They didn't feel comfortable sleeping in my great grandparent’s bed. However, because the master bedroom was closest to their room they moved my crib into the master bedroom and outfitted it with a baby monitor and my toys.
The first night in this orientation was surprisingly calm. I was quiet, which was strange because I would usually make more noise throughout the night. On the second night things changed. A little after midnight my dad awoke to the sound of me laughing on the baby monitor which was strange because I was very young and haven’t laughed many times before. So my dad got up and crossed the hallway to check up on me, but the second he opened the door I stopped. I was still awake and moving around but after a few minutes I fell back asleep and my dad went back to his room and nothing else happened.
The next night I started to laugh again around the same time and like before my dad went to check on me and I stopped like before. He really didn't think too much of it, after all he was a first time dad so he wasn't sure if this was really something abnormal so after I fell asleep he left and went back to bed. A couple hours later he woke up of his own accord and was instantly restless. For whatever reason he couldn't get comfortable and sleep so he decided to leave his room and have a walk around the house. He walked down the master staircase to the foyer and was about to check out a music room when he heard my laugh echoing from upstairs. He was starting to get a little freaked out at this point, sure it’s just your kid and all but it was a creepy situation and this time I stopped on my own after a couple seconds. After standing still for a minute or two he decided to return to his room so he slowly retreated back to the steps of the master staircase, but the second his foot touched the first step I started up again. Despite the initial nervousness, he pushed out any fear and quickly climbed the stairs and made his way to the master bedroom.
He reached the door and as he reached out his hand to the doorknob he realized that the door was already open by a hair. He couldn't recall if he shut it completely the last time he was in the room so it was slightly unnerving. I was still laughing when he slowly pushed open the door and walked inside. He saw nothing at first and closed the door behind him, but after his eyes adjusted to the darkness he saw what he described as a dim outline on the opposite side of the crib. He froze in shock and said that it looked like an organized transparent mist; but the more he looked, the more he could make out patterns and shapes. He recognized what looked like a plaid pattern and it dawned on him that it was similar to pattern of his grandfather’s favorite nightgown. Once he realized this, the nightgown was almost like a reference for the rest of the object so he knew where the arms and head should be and slowly the rest of it began to sharpen. He wasn't sure if his eyes were still adjusting or if the outline was doing it on its own but my dad said the area he thought was the head began to move and he was able to make out my great grandfather’s face staring back at him. They stared at each other for what felt like hours, then he then slowly looked down at me in the crib and I started to laugh immediately. He then looked back up at my dad, only this time he was able to make out a gentle smile when they locked eyes. And just like a dimming light the outline faded away until there was nothing but me in the crib alone, silently sleeping at the foot of my Great Grandparent’s bed.
After he regained his wits, my dad quickly moved me and the crib into the guest room with my mom. He woke her up and frantically told her everything he saw. She said she had never seen him this panicked before and he began shaking uncontrollably as he was speaking to her. They stayed up the entire night talking about what happened and for the next month they kept me in their room with them for the night.
The spirit or ghost never made another appearance, and while my parents believed it was my Great Grandfather they decided that even if it wasn't it meant no harm. They moved me back into the master bedroom for the last days of their stay.
While in that room I never laughed in the middle of the night again and I always slept soundly. - Reddit.com
Faith healer jailed for 10 years over massive fraud
A woman described as “pure evil” has been has been jailed for 10 years after swindling £1 million from vulnerable people by claiming to be spiritual healer who could cure cancer or help them to get pregnant by sending money to the Amazon jungle. Juliette D’Souza, 59, extracted huge sums of cash from 11 people across Hampstead and north London – including opera singers, photographers and solicitors – by claiming to be a shamanic healer with links to the rainforest in Suriname.
D’Souza was such a persuasive con-artist that she managed to convince her victims she could cure terminal illnesses, help disabled children or enable them to conceive by sending cash to the South American jungle – to be hung from a sacred tree. Her victims believed she was working with two other shamans in Suriname, known as Pa and Oma, who would hang their cash “sacrifices” on the tree in the heart of the jungle. Instead, D’Souza spent the money on a lavish lifestyle, renting three or four luxury flats at a time in Hampstead and splashing a fortune on Louis Vuitton bags, jewellery, antique furniture and holidays. She boasted of celebrity clients including Princess Diana and Simon Cowell.
Her victims described her as confident, well-spoken and attractive, and said she was incredibly manipulative and persuasive, convincing them that terrible things would happen if they did not hand over cash sacrifices. The victims were so under her spell during the 12-year scam that one woman, who cannot be named, had an abortion at her say so, while another, Ruth Fillingham, sold her home because D’Souza said it was “spooked”. The woman who had the abortion had previously given D’Souza more than £170,000 in the belief it would help her to conceive. Ms Fillingham, had paid £169,000 from 1998 to 2004 to ward off the evil spirit of her deceased brother, save her partner from a nonexistent tumour and ensure her eye surgery would be a success – which it was not.
Her boyfriend, Geoff Wheeler, handed over £195,000 in the same period. Much of the money was supposed to secure his job, but he was still made redundant. Retired opera singer Sylvia Eaves, 83, was conned out of a total of £353,000. D’Souza had multiple identities and a litany of addresses across Hampstead, as well as in West Hampstead, Belsize Park, Kensington and St John’s Wood. She would pay up to a year’s rent in advance – in cash – and occupy several flats at once. It emerged during the trial that she was previously convicted of 28 counts of fraud and four of theft, spending time in Holloway prison in the 1980s. Sentencing her to 10 years in prison for each of 23 counts to run concurently - the maximum sentence allowed by Parliament, Judge Ian Karsten QC said: “It is the worst confidence fraud I have ever had to deal with or indeed that I have heard of”. - Hamhigh
At the European Lunar Symposium held at the Museum earlier this month, NASA officials revealed that the Moon could be used as a practice ground for sending humans to Mars within 20 years.
NASA’s chief scientist Dr Ellen Stofan and deputy chief technologist Jim Adams told the assembled scientists that putting humans on Mars is NASA’s ‘primary mission’.
While there have been many robotic missions to Mars in search of water and signs of life, including Curiosity’s current assignment, Dr Stofan believes it's now essential to send human scientists.
‘To unambiguously settle the questions of whether there was life on Mars it will take scientists down on the surface,’ Dr Stofan said.
However, she admitted there is still a long way to go to ready the technologies for such a mission.
With the exception of those who went to the Moon, the majority of people sent into space so far have been in ‘low Earth orbit’, relying on systems on Earth to keep them alive. A journey to Mars would take months.
Bagging an asteroid
Before taking the plunge and attempting to send people to Mars, and the associated dangers of deep space, NASA plans to use the Moon as an intermediate proving ground, because it is close enough to return astronauts home within a couple of days.
But rather than landing on the lunar surface, the plan is to pull an asteroid close enough to the Moon to allow astronauts to take samples from it.
The Asteroid Redirect Mission aims to find a small asteroid travelling between the Moon and Earth and to ‘snag it, bag it and drag it’ into orbit around the Moon where it can be reached by astronauts.
Robots would perform the capture portion, testing ion propulsion systems - the heavy-duty thrusters that would be needed to get humans and their equipment all the way to Mars.
The budget for seeking out near-Earth objects such as asteroids has already been doubled to find a suitable candidate for the mission.
The human phase would then test new suits designed to protect astronauts from health hazards such as bursts of solar wind. It would also train astronauts in protocols for working in deep space, far from home.
‘We’re working to reduce the risks so that people can arrive on Mars happy and healthy and ready to work.’ Dr Stofan said.
To the disappointment of many of the scientists in the audience, who want to see more lunar exploration, Dr Stofan and Adams said that NASA does not intend to use the Moon’s surface as part of its journey to Mars. They did acknowledge, however, the general importance of research on the surface, both for science and exploration, and said they will work with partners in other space agencies to achieve this.
Research on the Moon could help work out how to gather resources from the surface of an alien world, such as how to extract water.
Adams finished the talk with tantalising inspiration. ‘Where NASA is headed is to the Martian surface in the 2030s,’ he said.
‘It is my dream that once we’ve put boots on Mars and we’ve established that pioneering presence on the surface, we would have already been thinking about where to go next. I hope that you guys will be along for the ride.’ - NHM
Biological Entities Living In Space – The Best Evidence Ever (VIDEO)
Biological Entities Living In Space – The Best Evidence Ever (VIDEO)
It has often been said that Nature abhors a vacuum – and evolution certainly does.
Every conceivable niche upon planet Earth has been populated by life forms – on land, in freshwater and the seas, beneath layers of rock far below the earth’s surface, even buried within the formless ooze on the ocean beds and encircling their scorching water-spewing hydrothermal vents.
Yet, inexplicably, there is one lone but vast ecological niche that has remained totally untouched by such animate activity – the rarefied atmospheric layers above and encompassing our world. True, insects, bacteria, birds, bats, and various other living entities spend varying extents of time in the sky, but there is no known life form that has evolved to live exclusively here, never venturing groundward except to die. There are no sky beasts, or cloud creatures – or are there?
One of the most intriguing UFO explanations on offer is that at least some of these elusive aerial entities are not alien spacecraft or anything else from beyond our planet. Instead, they are living creatures – huge, fast, and exceedingly fragile, but life forms nonetheless, highly-specialised for an absolute existence high above our earthbound domain.
Cutting edge physics, M-Theory predicts a universe that comprises of 11 dimensions. We exist in a 4 dimensional subset of this 11 dimensions. These being 3 spatial and 1 temporal (time). As predicted these extra 7 dimensions may from time to time bleed over into our little corner of the universe.
What you will see in the video (below) is the best evidence ever of entities from beyond our normal 4 dimensional experience.
Keep an open mind, no one really knows what is possible in a 11 dimensional Multiverse…

Two Giant Underwater Crystal Pyramids Discovered in the Center of the Bermuda Triangle
Two Giant Underwater Crystal Pyramids Discovered in the Center of the Bermuda Triangle
With the use of sonar, oceanographer Dr. Meyer Verlag discovered giant glass pyramids at a depth of two-thousand meters. The use of other devices have allowed scientists to determine that these glass giants are both made of a crystal-like substance, and are nearly 3 times bigger than the pyramid of Cheops in Egypt.
Dr. Verlag believes that further investigation into the secrets in the pyramids center could reveal more information regarding the cases of mysterious disappearances associated with the Bermuda Triangle. In a press conference held in the Bahamas, the scientist presented a report with the exact coordinates of the pyramids, and made note that the technology at use is unknown to modern science. A more detailed study may bring results that are difficult for us to imagine. Who knows what will be discovered about these underwater architectural anomalies – perhaps something of shocking significance.
Built on Land – Lost During Last Pole Shift?
There are several Western scholars who argue that the pyramid on the seabed may have been initially made on the mainland, after which a devastating earthquake struck and changed the landscape completely. Other scientists argue that a few hundred years ago the waters of the Bermuda Triangle area may have as one of the cornerstone activities of the people of Atlantis, and Pyramids on the sea floor may be a supply warehouse for them.
A more detailed study over time will give results that are difficult to imagine. Scientists have processed all of the data and concluded that the surface is perfectly smooth for it to look like glass or ice. The size of the pyramids are nearly three times the size of the pyramids of Cheops. This news was sensational, and was discussed at a conference in Florida and even reported to local Florida newspapers.. The journalists present in it, have a lot of pictures and high resolution computerized data, which show three-dimensional pyramids perfectly smooth, without being covered with a surface free of debris or algae or cracks.
Pyramid Discovery Challenges Current Archaeological Theory
A gigantic structure, initially identified by a doctor in the 1960s, has recently been independently verified by diving teams from France and the U.S.
The discovery has rocked scientists around the world. Will they rush to investigate it? No, they’re more likely to studiously ignore it. If pressed, they’ll officially position themselves as highly skeptical—especially in light of the potential ramifications.
The pyramid could confirm some engineers’ contentions that pyramids were originally created as massive power sources, support the claim that the ancient city-state of Atlantis did exist, or even provide answers to the mysterious goings-on that have been recorded since the 19th Century in the region of the Atlantic dubbed the Bermuda Triangle.
According to the history, the pyramid was accidentally discovered during 1968 by a doctor of naturopathy, Ray Brown of Mesa, Arizona.
Brown was in the Caribbean on vacation and making dives with friends in a region off the Bahamas known as “the Tongue of the Ocean.” The area acquired that name because a tongue-shaped portion of the seabed extends out from the island before sharply dropping off into much greater depths.
When relating his discovery, the doctor explained he became separated from his diving friends underwater. While attempting to rejoin them he came upon a massive structure rising from the ocean floor: a black, hulking object silhouetted against the lighter sun-filtered water. The object was shaped like a pyramid.
Because he was low on air, he didn’t spend much time investigating the pyramid, but did find a strange crystal sphere.
He brought it to the surface with him and later when the ancient crystal was studied researchers were astonished by its properties.
Properties of Crystal Pyramids
Some theories of Atlantis propose the island city’s power pyramids were made of crystal, or their tops were capped with a crystalline substance.
Could such a thing actually generate, store, and distribute energy on demand? Yes.
Experimenters discovered decades ago that pyramids do tend to act in some ways like a natural electrical capacitor gathering and storing energy around them. The larger the pyramid, the greater the capacity of gathering and storing energy. A pyramid’s composition is important too. Having one made of crystal, or an apex made of crystal, could vastly increase its power.
Early radio used germanium crystals to capture the radio waves and convert them into electrical signals that could be processed and broadcast through headphones into sound waves duplicating the human voice, music, and other sounds.
Pyramid power, say investigators, is intrinsic to the pyramid shape. It’s an architecture that’s proven to function as an energy accumulator and amplifier of energetic force.
As if to prove the investigators’ assertions true, recently some of the worlds pyramids began discharging beams of raw energy into space. [See: World's Pyramids Beaming Energy]
The bottom line? Pyramids are intrinsically natural generators of power.
Pyramids and the ‘Cavity Structural Effect’
Barry Carter calls attention to another property that pyramids exhibit called the “Cavity Structural Effect” (CSE) by its discoverer, Dr. Viktor S. Grebennikov. The scientist employed the CSE to construct a rudimentary anti-gravitic platform.
Viktor S. Grebennikov demonstrates anti-gravity platform
Carter explains that “Grebennikov also claimed that he could feel energies emitting from the apex of a pyramid: ‘You will soon pick up an active zone, a “clot”, where the Egyptians had their tombs. Another active zone (a “flame”) above the top of the pyramid is also well-perceived by the indicator if you drag its end over the top. The “clot” and the “flame” are well-felt by the finger inserted into the pyramid, or your palm moved above it after some practice. The pyramid effect, which generated many scary and mysterious stories over the centuries, is one of the CSE manifestations.’”
A Bermuda Triangle ‘Energy Vortex’
Another phenomenon pyramids may create: an energy vortex
Besides the time and spatial anomalies reported in the Triangle, some survivors of terrifying incidents there have reported huge, swirling vortices suddenly appearing and disappearing .
Evidence exists that some missing ships may have gone missing because of this phenomenon.
Observations of some of the submerged pyramids reveals they sporadically generate intense vortices in the ocean water flowing around them. Those vortices may be caused by a discharge of internal energy.
If those submerged pyramids also discharge massive energy through their apexes, that could account for the formation of deadly vortices on the surface of the sea that swallows up whole ships along with their doomed crews.
Future expeditions to these mysterious pyramids may finally uncover the truth and reveal amazing ancient technology.

Makhunik en Iran, la cité des nains existe vraiment ?
Makhunik en Iran, la cité des nains existe vraiment ?
L'ancien village iranien dans le sud de la province de Khorasan, connu sous le nom Makhunik, connu aussi sous le nom de Shahr-e Kotouleha (City of Dwarfs), a étonné beaucoup de gens qui sont friands de visiter une vraie ville naine. Personne ne savait à priori qu'il existait une antique civilisation dans ce désert avant 1946. Cependant, suite à des études menées par la faculté de l'Université de Géographie de Téhéran en 1946, des poteries ont été découvertes dans Shahdad comme preuve d'une civilisation qui a prospéré dans le désert de Lut.
Compte tenu de l'importance de la question, un groupe d'archéologues a visité la région et a mené des études qui ont conduit à la découverte de civilisations appartenant à la préhistoire (fin du 4ème millénaire avant JC et au début du 3ème millénaire avant JC).
Des fouilles scientifiques et archéologiques ont été menées dans cette région au cours de 1948-1956. Des Cimetières appartenant aux millénaire avant J.-C. et des fours à cuivre des 2e et 3e ont été découverts au cours des huit phases d'excavation. Les reliques découvertes dans les cimetières de Shahdad incluent de nombreuses poteries et vaisseliers.
Situés à environ 100 kilomètres à l'est du district de Shahdad à Kerman (voisine de la province de Khorasan), les vestiges de la ville antique et les structures découvertes évoquent l'image de "la ville de Liliput (Cour de Lilliput)" décrite dans le célèbre roman de Jonathan Swift, Les Voyages de Gulliver. L'ancienne région de Shahdad est répartie sur 60 km au cœur du désert de Lut. La ville comprend des ateliers, des quartiers résidentiels et des cimetières. Les études archéologiques dans le quartier résidentiel connu sous le nom de la "ville des nains" ont révélé la présence de sous-districts dans lesquels les bijoutiers, les artisans et les agriculteurs vivaient. Plus de 800 tombes antiques ont été fouillées pendant les phases d'excavation.
Selon les rapports des archéologues, l'ancienne ville de Makhunik (Makhoonik) faisait partie de la terre de la civilisation d'Aratta et des humains nains sont également rapportés avoir existé depuis 6.000 avant JC.
La petite taille des structures découvertes dans la ville pourrait être la preuve de cette croyance.
En outre, la découverte d'un nain momifié de 25 centimètres dans la zone en 2005, qui a créé de grandes sensations parmi le public, peut également soutenir la revendication. Le cadavre a été récupéré par deux trafiquants qui voulaient vendre la momie pour environ 3 millions de dollars en Allemagne. Les archéologues ont fait remarquer qu'elle aurait été momifiée par des processus naturels.
Alors que les études médico-légaux ne pouvaient pas aider les archéologues à déterminer l'âge exact du cadavre, il a été estimé que le nain aurait été âgé de 16-17 ans au moment de la mort.
La recherche dans la région a révélé que même il y a assez peu d'années, la hauteur des personnes à Makhunik atteignait rarement les 150 cm, mais maintenant, ils ont une taille normale. Au même moment, le plus ancien drapeau (blason) en métal de l'histoire humaine a également été mis au jour dans cette ville antique.
Les enquêtes archéologiques dans la "ville des nains" indiquent que les habitants ont abandonné la région en raison de la sécheresse il y a 5000 ans et ne sont jamais revenus. Mir-Abedin Kaboli, qui supervise les fouilles archéologiques de Shahdad, a déclaré : "Après les dernières fouilles, nous avons remarqué que les habitants de Shahdad avaient laissé beaucoup de leurs biens dans les maisons et recouvert les portes avec de la boue. Cela montre qu'ils avaient bon espoir de revenir un jour."
Un aspect important sur Shahdad est l'architecture étrange des maisons, des ruelles et des équipements découverts. Les murs, les plafonds, les fours, les étagères et tous les équipements ne peuvent être utilisés que par des nains. Après la découverte de la ville de nains dans Shahdad et des histoires sur les peuples qui y vivaient, des rumeurs ont circulé à propos de la découverte des restes d'un nain.
Le dernier cas portait sur la découverte d'une momie d'un nain avec une hauteur de 25 cm. Les contrebandiers voulaient la vendre pour 80 milliards de rials en Allemagne.
Les nouvelles de l'arrestation des deux contrebandiers et la découverte d'une étrange momie s'est propagée rapidement à travers la province de Kerman. Par la suite, le Département du patrimoine culturel de Kerman et les fonctionnaires de la Police se sont assis pour clarifier l'état de la momie, qui appartiendrait à une personne de 17 ans ".
Certains archéologues sont prudents et nient même que la ville de Makhunik était autrefois habitée par des nains anciens.
" Puisque les études médico-légales n'ont pas pu déterminer le sexe du cadavre, nous ne pouvons pas compter sur eux pour parler de la hauteur et de l'âge du corps, et des études plus anthropologiques sont encore nécessaires pour connaître les détails sur la découverte ", dit Javadi, l'archéologue de l'Organisation du patrimoine culturel et du tourisme de la province de Kerman. " Même s'il est prouvé que le cadavre appartient à un nain, nous ne pouvons pas dire avec certitude que la région de sa découverte dans la province de Kerman ait été la ville des nains. C'est une région très ancienne, qui a été enterrée en raison de changements géographiques. En outre, la technologie n'était pas aussi développée à cette époque et les gens pouvaient ne pas avoir été en mesure de construire de hauts murs pour leurs maisons ", a-t-il ajouté.
" En ce qui concerne le fait que, dans aucun des périodes de l'histoire de l'Iran, nous avons eu des momies, il n'est pas accepté du tout que ce cadavre soit momifié. Si ce cadavre se trouve appartenir à l'Iran, il serait un faux. En raison des minéraux existants dans le sol de cette région, tous les squelettes ici sont pourris et aucun squelette intact n'a été trouvé à ce jour. D'autre part, les fouilles archéologiques de 38 ans dans la ville de Shahdad nient toute ville naine dans la région. Les maisons qui sont restées avec leurs murs de 80 centimètres de haut étaient à l'origine de 190 centimètres. Certains des murs sont restés de 5 centimètres de haut, devrions donc nous prétendre que les gens qui vivent dans ces maisons avaient 5 centimètres de hauteur ? " dit Mirabedin Kaboli, leader des fouilles archéologiques dans la ville de Shahdad ".
Plusieurs mois après la découverte, Payvand Iran Nouvelles a indiqué que les études anthropologiques ont révélé que la petite momie datait en fait de 400 anset n'appartenait pas à un nain du tout, mais à un bébé prématuré qui avait été momifié par des processus naturels. " Le squelette appartient à un bébé prématuré qui, en raison des conditions régionales et sa méthode d'enfouissement, a été momifié sous des processus naturels ", a déclaré Farzad Forouzanfar, un anthropologue de l'Organisation du patrimoine culturel et du tourisme de l'Iran. (YH : On se souvient que, pourtant, un autre spécialiste dit le contraire et qu'il n'a jamais été trouvé de momie en Iran à cause des conditions régionales, justement...)
Alors, que pouvons-nous conclure à propos de Makhunik et la petite momie ? Il semble que la plupart des reportages des médias sur l'affaire ont été stimulés par la rumeur et déformés par le sensationnalisme. Il semble plus probable que la momie soit le reste naturellement préservé d'un bébé, des études anthropologiques l'ont révélé.
Néanmoins, il est curieux que les légendes de «petites gens» n'existent pas seulement en Iran, mais peuvent être trouvées dans de nombreuses cultures à travers le monde. L'Histoire des Petits Peuples perdus, selon le Dr Susan Martinez, auteur de "L'histoire des Petits Peuples : Leurs civilisations avancées spirituellement à travers le monde", une ancienne race de gens qui étaient de petite taille, a autrefois habité la Terre. Elle se réfère à des légendes et des histoires de nombreuses cultures, comme les dieux nains du Mexique et du Pérou, la Menhune d'Hawaï, le Nunnehi des Cherokee, ainsi que les Pygmées africains et le Semang de la Malaisie, et s'appuie sur les découvertes de réseaux de tunnels minuscules, de petits cercueils, de portes basses dans des monticules, et des huttes de la taille de pygmées, comme preuve de cette race ancienne. Alors, pourquoi ces êtres n'auraient pas existé dans l'ancien Iran ?
Après un laps de 5000 ans, depuis le départ des nains de la ville, une large bande de cette région préhistorique est enterrée dans le sol et la migration des nains de Shahdad reste assombrie de mystères. Beaucoup aimeraient savoir pourquoi les nains de Shahdad ont couvert les portes de leurs maisons de boue et ne sont jamais revenus...
Scientists in the United Kingdom have reported findings that could change our understanding of lightning. Researchers have discovered a link between charged particles on the Sun and increased lightning on Earth. Wal Thornhill explains why this is not a surprise to the Electric Universe community.
Source: As one of only a handful of Australian sites that has been reliably dated to beyond 45,000 years, Nawarla Gabarnmang is a significant and increasingly well-known site, both in Australia and internationally. Excavations at this site, which began in 2010, have brought to light some of the oldest currently known evidence for ground edge axe technology (Geneste et al. 2010) and pigment use specifically for art (David et al. 2013).. However, the compelling archaeological stories being told below the ground are equally matched by those above it. The visually stunning nature of this shelter, which is quite literally covered in rock art, rivals some of the best known rock art sites in the world.
The Wandjinas to the aborigines were the rain and cloud spirits. Look a lot like alien greys, eh? They were painted near water holes, no doubt to attract more water in the dought-stricken areas of Australia. They do look strangely like the alien greys and it makes you wonder of all the faces in the world to pray to bring you water - why these?
Then there is this odd piece of erotica below that shows a littl fella with long skinny legs taking this lizard-faced person on all four. Erotic-based cave art is not that unusual but perhaps the way these were designed are just a bit stylized to almost look like anthropomorphs of some kind.
All of this weirdness aside, this is a truly amazing find and the question remains as they just being to pour over it (can only be accessed by helicopter it's so remote on the Jawoyn People's land in Northern Australia) just what else they might find and hopefully document in full light so we can all see it and not try to squirrel away any OOPART items (out of place/out of time).

Humans have long wondered whether we are alone in the universe. According to scientists working with the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI) Institute, the question may be answered in the near future.
"It's unproven whether there is any life beyond Earth," Seth Shostak, senior astronomer at the SETI Institute, said at a House Committee on Science, Space and Technology hearing Wednesday (May 21). "I think that situation is going to change within everyone's lifetime in this room."
Scientists search for life beyond Earth using three different methods, Shostak said. [13 Ways to Find E.T.]
Vancouver reported 116 UFO sightings in 2013, more than any other Canadian city. The city that once played host to The X-Files is also the best place in Canada to spot a flying saucer, according to the Canadian UFO Survey. That’s right: If the truth is out there, Vancouver is probably a good place to find it. Astronomer Chris Rutkowski said the sheer number of sightings – 1,100 in all of Canada last year – demands further research. ““Are we looking at a real phenomenon? Is there a psychological phenomenon accounting for all this?” said Rutkowski, who works with the Canadian UFO Survey. “Why do people persist in seeing something that supposedly shouldn’t be there?” Vancouver has been a UFO hot spot for years, according to the survey, and B.C. was second only to Ontario for sightings in 2013. About 300 UFOs were reported across the province, with sightings peaking between 10 p.m. and 11 p.m. Rutkowski said most UFO sightings can be easily explained as satellites, planes or military exercises, but 10 per cent remain a mystery. Also unexplained are some incidents of crop circles, which have confounded farmers in Northern B.C. in the past. Charles Lamoureux, a Vancouver resident, claims he sees UFOs on a regular basis. “I see them every night,” he said. “I can pretty well tell what’s a satellite and not a satellite. If it’s not a satellite and way up in the atmosphere and it changes direction, there’s not many things it could be.” He claims to have seen his first UFO three years ago and was entranced by the possibility of communication with beings not from earth. Lamoureux has since purchased a Yukon Night Vision Device, which he uses to peruse the night sky, searching for any sign of visitors from another planet. In one memorable incident, he said an orb came about 15 metres away from his balcony seemingly observing him. It hovered for a few moments before shooting off into the night sky. Another time, he shone a light at a mysterious object in the sky with the orb flashing a light in response. Lamoureux says he hopes whatever the UFOs may be, they become comfortable openly communicating with people from Earth. NOTE: The above image is a rendering.
KEN’S NOTE: Personally I feel the percentage of unexplained UFO sightings is more like 30%. Many UFO investigators write off thousands of sightings to birds, bugs, satellites and planes. Of course they are guessing 90 % of the time. We need more investigators with open minds and the passion that comes with investigating a UFO sighting. Many people are not cut out to be a UFO investigator because sometimes people cannot handle the truth. It really opens your eyes to how many and how detailed some of these UFO sightings can be.
There is certainly an alien presence on this earth.
Vulkaanuitbarstingen op Mars hebben er mogelijk voor gezorgd dat er zeer recentelijk nog leven op de Rode Planeet zou zijn geweest, zo heeft de Brown Universty geopperd.
Zowat 210 miljoen jaar geleden waren er uitbarstingen van de Arsia Mons, een vuurberg die bijna twee keer zo hoog is als de Everest en die één van dehoogste bergen van ons zonnestelsel is. In diezelfde tijd was de noordwestelijke flank van de vulkaan bedekt met ijs.
De hitte van de vulkaanuitbarstingen moet ervoor hebben gezorgd dat op de flanken van de vulkaan - met ijs bedekte - meren ontstonden.
Studente Kat Scanlon van de Brown University berekende dat dit alles tot honderden kubieke kilometers smeltwater moet hebben veroorzaakt. En wie water zegt, die denkt aan leven.
Bovendien is het mogelijk dat er onder gesteente of onder de grond nog wat van dat gletsjerijs bewaard is gebleven. "Allen daarheen" kan aldus het motto zijn.
Bijzonder tafereel uit Portugal. Daar legde een fotograaf een gonzende menigte muggen vast die in de vorm van een tornado aan het zwermen was. De afbeelding werd vereeuwigd op een niet nader genoemde plek ten noorden van de Portugese hoofdstad Lissabon en wordt momenteel druk gedeeld op het internet.

UFOs: The Human Mutilation Cover Up! |UFO Sightings Hotspot
UFOs: The Human Mutilation Cover Up! |UFO Sightings Hotspot
The mutilation of cattle and its relation to sightings of unidentified flying objects is a well documented phenomenon, however mutilations have also been found in humans.
There are many cases where unidentified flying objects have been linked to mutilation and removal of organs in humans, phenomena investigated by various authorities and today still unexplained.
The phenomenon of animal mutilation is difficult to explain in conventional terms, and has been linked for decades with UFO's, because strange lights are sometimes witnessed in proximity to sites where animal carcasses are found.
But have human beings suffered similar attacks?
Rumors about human mutilation have circulated the UFO community for years and there are many cases where unidentified flying objects have been linked to mutilation and removal of organs in humans, with some people claiming to have had contact with a military group which is used to acquire the corpses of victims and to hide all evidence of human mutilations. This group of special forces was named 58.
In the next 3-minute videos tercermileniotv discusses several cases of human mutilation.
In the next film we reveal the testimony of a black ops soldier, who was employed by a secret NATO "find and secure" military team. Their job is to search for and then protect sites where human mutilation has taken place. This is the full Movie.

Shungite: de geheime Russische steen
Shungite: de geheime Russische steen
Shungite is zeldzaam en wordt op maar één plaats ter wereld gevonden: in Karelië, een regio die gedeeltelijk deel uitmaakt van Finland, maar voor het grootste deel in Rusland gelegen is. De steen werd voor het eerst ontdekt in de buurt van het plaatsje Shun’ga.
Sommigen zeggen dat shungite in de oceaan is gevormd, terwijl anderen menen dat de steen is meegebracht door meteorieten. In 1985 ontdekten wetenschappers dat de steen fullerenen bevat. Hierdoor is het een interessant studieobject voor wetenschappers, de industrie en de medische wereld.
De bewoners van Karelië maken naar verluidt al honderden jaren gebruik van de helende eigenschappen van shungite. Tot het eind van de twintigste eeuw waren grafiet en diamant de enige bekende verschijningsvormen van koolstof.
Harold Kroto van de Universiteit van Sussex en Robert Curl en Richard Smalley van de Rice-universiteit kregen in 1996 de Nobelprijs in de scheikunde voor hun onderzoek naar fullerenen. In 2003 werd onderzoek gepubliceerd naar medische toepassingen van fullerenen: ze kunnen specifieke antibiotica binden om resistente bacteriën aan te pakken en zelfs kankercellen aanvallen, zoals melanomen. Daarnaast vindt steeds meer onderzoek plaats naar supergeleiding van fullerenen.
Fullerenen hebben een antioxiderende werking en verminderen de concentratie vrije radicalen, die in het lichaam kunnen leiden tot de vernietiging van cellen, versnelde veroudering, schade aan de huid, hartaandoeningen en kanker. Vrije radicalen worden met name veroorzaakt door luchtverontreiniging, kunstmatige toevoegingen aan voeding, stress en zware metalen.
Shungite wordt al sinds het begin van de 18e eeuw gebruikt bij medische behandelingen. Tsaar Peter de Grote opende het eerste Russische kuuroord in Karelië waar gebruikt werd gemaakt van de waterzuiverende eigenschappen van shungite. Hij gebruikte de steen ook om gezuiverd water te leveren aan het Russische leger en op deze manier dysenterie te voorkomen.
In Rusland is op medisch en ecologisch gebied veel ervaring opgedaan met shungite. Om de positieve invloed van shungite op het fysische en psychische welzijn te testen werden verschillende shungite-ruimtes ingericht. De oudste is te vinden in Petrozavodsk, de hoofdstad van Karelië.
Andere zijn te vinden in een militair hospitaal aan de rand van Sint-Petersburg, de Moskouse gevangenis Matrosskaja Tisjina en in Beslan in Noord-Ossetië, waar de ruimte na een gijzelingsactie op een school werd gebruikt om schoolkinderen te helpen bij de verwerking.

Apparently, in June of 1977 Area 51 had a problem with mysterious cattle deaths. The EPA was notified and investigated, but were unable to figure out why these six cows died.
The documents were found by UFO researcher Shepherd Johnson via the digital archives of Congressional ProQuest. The document was difficult to read so I transcribed the document below.
According to the report, the animals had sufficient food and water, and there were no apparent signs of struggle or trauma. The cattle mutilation phenomenon, which was very common in the southwest during the late 70s, usually entailed the animals having strange cuts and missing organs. That does not appear to be the case with these cows.
However, it is apparent by the tone of the report that the investigator was at a loss as to explain how these cows died. The water samples they refer to collecting came back without any toxins. It appears this case was never solved.
Here is the report:
ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY
WESTERN ENVIRONMENTAL RESEARCH LABORATORY
Date: June 23, 1977
Attention of: MSF
Subject: Field investigation of dead cattle in Area 51
To: The files
On June 20, Mr. Jerry Doran, off-site monitor , MOR, was informed by Area 51 security personnel, of a recent series of deaths among the cattle that wander onto the Area 51 complex from the herds of Mr. Steve Modlin who ranches to the east. The security personnel had noted six carcasses within the past two weeks.
After consultation with Mr. Ernest D. Campbell of ERDA/NV, it was decided that Mr. Doran and I should investigate and attempt to determine the cause or the causes of the death of these animals. We arrived at the Area 51 complex at 100 hours on June 21 and talked to security personnel (Mr. Krause). They furnished us with a map showing the locations of the carcasses (see enclosure). They stated that numbers 1, 4, and 5 had been noted about two weeks before and the remaining animals had died within the last week (probably since Friday).
No animals had been note to be sick. Water was readily avaialble at the Area 51 recreation lake and at a corral approximately one mile beyond the east gate. Water had also been available for the last several weeks due to rain runoff on the dry lake bed.
Mr. Doran and I examined each of the carcasses. In all Cases, petrifaction was so advanced to make a necropsy or sample collection impractical. A description of each carcass is as follows:
Animal Number 1: An aged Hereford cow in advanced state of decay (estimate of two weeks) located on edge of dry lake bed. No visible signs of trauma or agonal struggling. Brand on left side indecipherable.
Animal Number 2: Brahman-cross cow with brand D/4 on left side. Estimated dead one week. Age unknown as could not see teeth for maggots. No signs of trauma or agonal struggling.
Animal Number 3: Four- to five-year-old Brahman-cross cow. About same stage of decay as number 2. No visible signs of trauma or agonal struggling. Same brand as number 2.
Animal Number 4: Aged Hereford cow lying on dry lake bed. Advanced decomposition of carcass indicated death about two weeks ago. No signs of agonal struggling or trauma. Water sample collected from lake bed about 100 yards from the animal.
Animal number 5: Aged Hereford cow in advanced stage of decomposition. Desiccation of carcass had begun which indicated it had been dead about two weeks. Again no signs of agonal struggling or trauma.
Animal number 6: Hereford cow dead within last week. Too many maggots to examine teeth. Some slight signs of struggling by rear feet.
All six of these animals were lying on sides with neck and head extended and four feet fully extended. no signs of trauma or agonal struggling were visible. My impression was all animals dies suddenly.
An Angus bull in the same area appeared normal and was in good condition. Graze appeared adequate. Drinking water was readily available. Area 51 personnel denied any severe electrical storms in the last few week. No Poisonous plants were noted except for scattered Halogeton along the roadways.
Water samples were collected at the dry lake bed and the recreational lake and were submitted for analyses. Area 51personnel were asked to report any other deaths to me promptly so a necropsy could be made.
Security personnel were going to notify Mr. Medlin of the deaths of his cattle that evening and secure his permission to bury them.
The cause or causes of death of these six animals was not readily apparent. Possible causes might include one or more of the following:
Lightning strikes – Not too likely in so many different locations as different times.
Trauma – (vehicle or bullets) – no external evidence.
Toxins – toxic plants not overly abundant. Water sources have been used for years previously. However, Mr. John Titus, EPA employee, said that when he was seventeen he rode for a cattle company that ran cattle over the Groom Lake area, and that about 30 to 40 cattle died whose deaths were attributed to drinking the water standing on the dry lake bed after the rain. Water samples were collected for analyses.
Infectious disease – no history of sickness – other animals in area appear healthy.
Starvation – good graze, readily available water.
Metabolic disturbances – bloat, grass tetany, etc., not likely.
Hopefully, if any other deaths occur, a more prompts investigation will shed more light on the causation agent.

When, in 2006, the British Ministry of Defence declassified its three-year study of UFOs known as Project Condign, former USAF Sgt. John Burroughs pretty much skipped it. Initially stamped “Secret UK Eyes Only” by authorities, the 1997-2000 analysis attempted to soft-peddle The Great Taboo by swapping out the UFO acronym for the less incendiary Unexplained Aerial Phenomena (UAP). And it went to great pains to reassure the “Eyes Only” crowd there were no intelligent forces in play, just rare haphazard confluences of meteorological elements broadly referred to as “buoyant plasma formations.”
"(Project Condign) is a cleverly written report interwoven with weather stuff to make it look unimportant" -- USAF veteran John Burroughs/CREDIT: mercuryrapids.co.uk
Based on reported and observed effects, Condign went on to describe what was undoubtedly some of the damnedest and most fearsome highly-localized weather you’d ever want to see. Generating electromagnetic anomalies forcing pilots to take potentially catastrophic evasive action, subjecting observers to radiation exposure, and even provoking hallucinations and “lost time” events, UAP — reported Condign — even held promise for weaponization. “The relevance of plasma and magnetic fields to UAP was an unexpected feature of the study,” wrote the unnamed authors. “It is recommended that further investigation should be [undertaken] into the applicability of various characteristics in various novel military applications.”
At the time, it was all gobbledy-gook to Burroughs. Burroughs was more preoccupied with high technology and hardware, the kind of stuff he and fellow first-responder Jim Penniston insist they confronted in the woods outside a U.S. airbase in southern England in late December 1980. Now regarded as one of the most famous UFO episodes in history, the controversy about what went down in the wilderness separating adjacent American military bases in Bentwaters and Woodbridge has provided grist for documentary and cable-channel programming for years. But it it refuses to go away, because whatever these retired 81st Security Police and Law Enforcement Squadron veterans encountered in Rendlesham Forest continues to plague their health today.
What Burroughs didn’t realize — at least, not until he revisited Condign in 2008 and gave it a more careful read — was that the MoD’s formerly classified assessment also included references to his own life-altering encounter:
“The well-reported Rendlesham Forest/Bentwaters event is an example where it might be postulated that several observers were probably exposed to UAP radiation for longer than normal UAP sighting periods,” it stated. “There maybe other cases which remain unreported. It is clear that the recipients of these effects are not aware that their behavior/perception of what they are observing is being modified.”
Meteorological behavior modification -- really. But wait, it gets worse: “Any pursuit of this process of indentification or elimination [of EM radiation] is pointless if the UAP radiation is other than EM radiation as we know it.” After all, Condign continues, “It is not certain that the radiation/fields are conventional and electromagnetic in nature.”
Reconnecting after nearly 30 years to compare notes of their mutual incredulity, Burroughs and Penniston discovered they were both suffering from multiple health issues. Their subsequent efforts to acquire their military medical records have been stonewalled by the Department of Veterans Affairs. With the VA under fire (again) for screwing veterans over, the timing probably couldn’t be better for the release of Encounter in Rendlesham Forest, their first-person recollections of that almost impossibly complex event, written by former MoD agent Nick Pope.
For now, leave aside all notions about ETs and alien spacecraft. This is an ongoing story about doctored service records, hot-potato buck-passing among allies, and (finally) intervention from Sen. John McCain’s office. With VA critics calling for Secretary Shinseki's scalp and all eyes focused on veteran' grievances, this Cold War mystery might finally gain some traction. We'll take an even closer look next time.
“Now Google has deleted every UFO I have ever reported on their map within 3-6 months of making the video.

Waring says “This glowing orb is most likely a disk. The trail behind it is more of a mist than a contrail. The UFO causes a distortion of space around it and that is the trail we see it leaving.”

Ever hear about a mass murder and think, huh, I wonder if a yeti did it? Okay, probably not your first conclusion. Or second. Or fifty-fifth. But that was the one explorer Mike Libecki found himself drawn to in investigating the cold case of the Dyatlov Incident, a journey documented in “Russian Yeti: The Killer Lives” (a two-hour special premiering on Discovery Sun. June 1 at 9:00 p.m.). Crazy, right? Well, hold on a minute.
There haven’t been a lot of other plausible explanations for what happened on Feb. 2, 1959, when nine college students hiked up the slopes of Russia’s Ural Mountains but didn’t come back down (not on their own steam, at least). Their bodies were later found scattered across their final campsite, some partially naked and with strange injuries including crushed ribs, a fractured skull, and one hiker whose eyes had been gouged out and tongue removed. Libecki doesn’t just pull the yeti idea out of thin air, by the way — it comes from interviews, the diaries of the hikers and the pictures taken before their deaths. Oh yeah, it was a picture of a yeti.
So, if we’re talking about a yeti doing all this damage, it seems only right to pepper the expert featured in the film, Dr. Jeffrey Meldrum, with our burning yeti questions. Currently a professor at Idaho State University, he’s also a Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization (BFRO) curator. He knows from yetis — and he also can explain why you haven’t seen a fossil of one at your local natural history museum. Here’s everything you never knew you wanted to know about these big, furry guys (some believe the yeti and Sasquatch are distinct, like grizzly bears and black bears) that you don’t read about in schoolbooks.

Stanley Romanek to be evaluated before court proceedings continue
The Loveland author of numerous books on the extraterrestrial will be assessed by a psychologist before court proceedings for the felony charges against him move forward.
Stanley Romanek appeared in 8th Judicial District Court on Wednesday with his public defender, who requested that the scheduled preliminary hearing be continued. Romanek was arrested by Loveland police on Feb. 13 on allegations of possession and distribution of child pornography.
According to his attorney, Romanek receives services related to cognitive deficits, and a psychologist hired by the public defender’s office will assess Romanek and determine his competency to proceed.
A Delaware County man has been arrested for allegedly stealing more than $350,000 worth of human skin from a Philadelphia hospital for years.
Gary Dudek, 54, of Wallingford, Pennsylvania, is charged with theft and tampering with records. According to investigators, Dudek repeatedly stole skin grafts from Mercy Philadelphia Hospital between November 2011 and July 2013.
Police say their investigation didn’t begin until January of this year, however, after officials at Mercy conducted an audit of their finances and noticed that skin grafts were missing.
According to investigators, Dudek worked as a sales representative for Organogenesis, a Massachusetts-based regenerative medicine company, between September 2006 and September 2013. Police say he was in charge of managing accounts for Mercy Hospital’s bio-science department and that he also supplied the hospital with skin grafts.
Due to his position, Dudek had an “open purchase order” which allowed him to order the skin grafts whenever he wanted. However, police say Dudek made several unauthorized purchases, and Mercy never received the grafts, leading the hospital to lose an estimated $357,000.
Officials also say Dudek was captured twice on surveillance video taking the skin grafts from the hospital and putting them in his car.
Dudek was arrested and released on Tuesday after posting 10 percent of $10,000 bail. At this point, investigators say they don’t know what Dudek did with the skin or the motive behind the alleged thefts. They suspect, however, that he was trying to make commission off of sales.
NBC10 visited Dudek’s home on Wednesday, but he refused to comment and referred us to his attorney, Eugene Tinari.
Tinari said in a statement that the issue should be a civil court matter and that the hospital has yet to prove his client did anything wrong.
“If Mercy Hospital has suffered losses and they can be deemed to be as a result of Mr. Dudek’s actions then perhaps a civil suit could have been initiated. But to take this into the criminal arena against a man who has been nothing but hard-working and law-abiding his entire life is a bit draconian, in my view,” he said.
Officials at Mercy Philadelphia Hospital told NBC10 they could not comment due to the ongoing investigation. – NBC Philadelphia
The traditional concept of a vampire in popular culture is one of a blood-sucking creature of the night that can turn in to a bat and has no reflection, but outside of books and movies there has been a growing community of people who have come to identify themselves as modern day vampires.
Senior lecturer Dr Emyr Williams has been conducting the first ever academic study in to this unusual subculture and has drafted a questionnaire in an effort to learn more.
“We are talking about a group of individuals who believe they have a psychological need to consume blood,” he said. “Some books say there are between 10,000 and 15,000 people in the UK who call themselves vampires, with maybe another 30,000 being donors. So we’re trying to reach as many of these people as we can to try and understand them better.”
Some modern vampires take their beliefs so seriously that they sleep in a coffin at night and even have their teeth sharpened in to fangs, however most don’t take things to such an extreme.
“This is a subculture that exists in every country, especially in the west,” he said. “It is fascinating and all very real, which is why I wanted to conduct this study.” Read more at Telegraph

She was believed to be sacrificed 500 years ago in a ceremony for the corn festival with other children who were found within a volcano in 1999.
Antjou (Egyptian mummy)
This mummy was thought to be a wealthy landowner.
Yeah, those red-haired mummies show up again - even in Egypt.
Source: Racially speaking, the inhabitants of Egypt at this period in time were separated into three groups. Skeletal evidence from grave sites show that the original White Mediterraneans and Proto-Nordics were in a majority in the area. A well preserved body found in a sand grave in Egypt dating from approx 3000 BC is on display in the British Museum in London with the nickname "Ginger" for his red hair.
Taklamakan mummy (China desert)
Let's talk a little about the "Tarim Mummies" found in the Tarim Basin (HINT - Ancient Giants Loved lakes and basins are dried up lake beds). This find was especially unusual and the called them "Europoid physical type whose closest affiliation is to the Bronze Age populations of southern Siberia, Kazakhstan, Central Asia, and the Lower VolgaIo."
When you hear the descriptions, some buttons are going to go off for you and as I believe Asia was the origin of the giants, this really intrigues me. SOURCE: Notable mummies are the tall, red-haired "Chärchän man" or the "Ur-David" (1000 BCE); his son (1000 BCE), a small 1-year-old baby with brown hair protruding from under a red and blue felt cap, with two stones positioned over its eyes; the "Hami Mummy" (c. 1400–800 BCE), a "red-headed beauty" found in Qizilchoqa; and the "Witches of Subeshi" (4th or 3rd century BCE), who wore 2-foot-long (0.61 m) black felt conical hats with a flat brim. Also found at Subeshi was a man with traces of a surgical operation on his abdomen; the incision is sewn up with sutures made of horsehair.
This blond female mummy found in 1989 in the Taklamakan Desert in China was 3000 years old and believed to have been a sacrifice. Interestingly, the mummies dug up on Catalina Island in California had blond hair and showed women and children sacrifices.
The baby buried in the same grave was believed to be a sacrifice buried alive.
This female was braided and wearing finely woven garments (remember that fine weaving in the characteristics of the "originators" race?) These people were believed to have created the infamous silk roads, bringing horses, saddles, Buddhism and metal work to China. Her red hair and tall stature were assumed to be European.
Source: Meanwhile, Yingpan Man, a nearly perfectly preserved 2,000-year-old Caucasoid mummy, discovered in 1995 in the region that bears his name, has been seen as the best preserved of all the undisturbed mummies that have so far been found.
Yingpan Man not only had a gold foil death mask -- a Greek tradition -- covering his blonde bearded face, but also wore elaborate golden embroidered red and maroon garments with seemingly Western European designs.
His nearly 2.00 meter (six-foot, six-inch) long body is the tallest of all the mummies found so far and the clothes and artifacts discovered in the surrounding tombs suggest the highest level of Caucasoid civilization in the ancient Tarim Basin region.
Ultimately, its becomes obvious that there were some dirty dealings among primitive people with sacrifices and these tall red and blond folks running about in the thousands of years BC with advanced knowledge. How does this all work together with the "originator" culture? Well, the coloring and height and technology fit, but not necessarily with the skull shapes from what I can tell on these photos. So, perhaps the races between earlier man were much more diverse than we assumed that there were races from Homo Erectus in Asia that left long before Homo Sapiens emerged from Africa and these breeds of folks from Neanderthal, Denisovan, and others, were interbreeding and creating hybridized and intelligent folks. It's my sincere hope that scientists go with open minds to find the truth of their origins. It seems if there is hair, there should be DNA....
A coronal mass ejection burst off the side of the sun on May 9, 2014. The giant sheet of solar material erupting was the first CME seen by NASA’s Interface Region Imaging Spectrograph, or IRIS. The field of view seen here is about five Earth’s wide and about seven and a half Earth’s tall.
IRIS must commit to pointing at certain areas of the sun at least a day in advance, so catching a CME in the act involves some educated guesses and a little bit of luck.
The IRIS Observatory was designed by and the mission is managed by Lockheed Martin Solar & Astrophysics Laboratory.

NASA bericht over UFO-waarnemingen in de klassieke oudheid
NASA bericht over UFO-waarnemingen in de klassieke oudheid
Al sinds de oudheid verschijnen er verhalen over ongeïdentificeerde vliegende objecten (UFO’s). NASA-wetenschapper Richard Stothers concludeert dat er een aantal raadselachtige waarnemingen zijn die niet kunnen worden verklaard. Dit fenomeen omvat vele eeuwen en verschillende culturen, aldus de onderzoeker.
Stothers (1939-2011) studeerde aan de Princeton- en Harvard-universiteit en was werkzaam voor het Goddard Institute for Space Studies van NASA. Hij heeft uitgebreid onderzoek gedaan naar 5 onverklaarbare UFO-waarnemingen in de klassieke oudheid.
Strijdwagens in de lucht
De Romeins-Joodse historicus Josephus schreef rond 65 na Christus over een fantastische waarneming boven Judea: “Op de 21e dag van de maand Artemisium verscheen een wonderlijk fenomeen. Ik denk dat deze waarneming normaal gesproken zou worden afgedaan als een fabel, ware het niet dat er veel verslagen van ooggetuigen zijn. Voor zonsondergang werden strijdwagens in de lucht gezien. Gewapende bataljons vlogen door de wolken en daalden neer op de steden.”
Volgens Stothers was Josephus waarschijnlijk zelf getuige van de gebeurtenissen. Door de getuigeverslagen werd zijn geloofwaardigheid versterkt. De omschrijving lijkt niet overeen te komen met een natuurlijk fenomeen, schreef Stothers.
Duizenden Romeinse soldaten zien UFO
De Griekse historiograaf Plutarchus schreef over een onbekend object dat door duizenden werd gezien. In 74 voor Christus marcheerde het Romeinse leger in de richting van de troepen van koning Mithridates VI van Pontus.
“Zonder dat het weer veranderde, scheurde de hemel open en viel er tussen de twee legers een enorm, vlammend object naar de aarde,” schreef hij. “Het had de vorm van een wijnkruik en was zilver van kleur. Beide kampen stonden voor een raadsel en gingen ieder hun eigen weg. Dit wonder geschiedde in Frygië, in een plaats genaamd Otryae.”
Stothers wijst erop dat het waarschijnlijk geen meteoriet is geweest omdat meteorieten zwart zijn in plaats van zilver. Plutarchus schreef nergens over een inslag. Er is een kans dat het een bolide was, een meteoor die vaak explodeert.
Waarneming tijdens de Tweede Punische Oorlog in Rome
Tijdens de Tweede Punische Oorlog (218-201 voor Christus) zijn door de Romeinse geschiedschrijver Titus Livius vele waarnemingen van onbekende objecten opgetekend. De teksten zijn verkregen uit de Annales Maximi (Grote Jaarboeken), die werden gepubliceerd door de pontifex maximus van Rome.
In de winter van 218 voor Christus was boven Rome ‘een vliegspektakel zichtbaar’. In 217 voor Christus verschenen ‘boven Arpi ronde schilden in de lucht’. In 173 voor Christus ‘werd in Lanuvium een enorme vloot gezien in de lucht’.
Het lijkt Stothers sterk dat de UFO’s indertijd zijn verward met wolkformaties, omdat dergelijke formaties toen al geruime tijd bekend waren. De waarnemingen hebben volgens de NASA-wetenschapper ook niets te maken met een parhelium of bijzon.
In een aantal UFO-stukken kan worden gelezen over glasachtige vezels of kalkachtige substanties die door onbekende objecten zijn achtergelaten, ook wel bekend als engelenhaar.
In 196 na Christus schreef de Romeinse geschiedschrijver Lucius Cassius Dio: “Een fijne, zilverkleurige regen viel neer op het forum van Augustus. Ik doopte enkele bronzen munten in de zilverkleurige substantie. Na vier dagen liet de substantie weer los.” In 214 voor Christus en in 98 voor Christus zou het ‘kalk hebben geregend’ in respectievelijk Cales en Rome.
Paus Pius I heeft rond 150 na Christus in de buurt van Via Campana in Italië een UFO waargenomen. “Op een zonnige dag landde een ‘beest’ van een stuk aardewerk met een doorsnee van 30 meter en een gekleurde bovenkant in een stofwolk. Er schoten felle stralen uit en het werd vergezeld door een ‘juffrouw’ gekleed in het wit.”
Stothers concludeert na het bestuderen van UFO-waarnemingen in de klassieke oudheid dat er een klein aantal onverklaarbare (of op zijn minst niet geheel verklaarbare) meldingen is van vermoedelijk geloofwaardige getuigen.
While HAARP and weather control has been called a conspiracy theory by the mainstream media and government officials, during a Senate hearing on Wednesday, David Walker, deputy assistant secretary of the Air Force for science, technology and engineering, dropped a bombshell in answer to a question asked by Lisa Murkowski in relation to the dismantling of the $300 million High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program in Gakona this summer.
Walker said this is “not an area that we have any need for in the future” and it would not be a good use of Air Force research funds to keep HAARP going. “We’re moving on to other ways of managing the ionosphere, which the HAARP was really designed to do,” he said. “To inject energy into the ionosphere to be able to actually control it. But that work has been completed.”
Many believe HAARP was created and has been used for weather control, with enough juice to trigger hurricanes, tornadoes and earthquakes and comments such as this bring about the question of whether conspiracy theorists are more on target than anyone has admitted to date.
This is not the first time a public official has acknowledged that HAARP and weather control is not only possible, but has been and continues to be, used as a “super weapon,” as evidenced by a statement in 1997 by former U.S. Defense Secretary William Cohen, where he said “Others [terrorists] are engaging even in an eco-type of terrorism whereby they can alter the climate, set off earthquakes, volcanoes remotely through the use of electromagnetic waves… So there are plenty of ingenious minds out there that are at work finding ways in which they can wreak terror upon other nations…It’s real, and that’s the reason why we have to intensify our [counterterrorism] efforts.”
Is it still just a conspiracy theory if public officials admit it is true?
EXCLUSIVE: Edward Snowden Tells Brian Williams: 'I Was Trained as a Spy'
Edward Snowden, in an exclusive interview with "Nightly News" anchor Brian Williams, is fighting back against critics who dismissed him as a low-level and offered technical expertise to high levels of government.
Snowden defended his expertise in portions of the interview that aired at 6:30 p.m. ET on Nightly News. The extended, wide-ranging interview with Williams, his first with a U.S. television network, airs Wednesday at 10 p.m. ET on NBC.
“I was trained as a spy in sort of the traditional sense of the word, in that I lived and worked undercover overseas — pretending to work in a job that I’m not — and even being assigned a name that was not mine,” Snowden said in the interview.
Snowden described himself as a technical expert who has worked for the United States at high levels, including as a lecturer in a counterintelligence academy for the Defense Intelligence Agency and undercover work for the CIA and National Security Agency.
“But I am a technical specialist. I am a technical expert,” he said. “I don’t work with people. I don’t recruit agents. What I do is I put systems to work for the United States. And I’ve done that at all levels from — from the bottom on the ground all the way to the top.”
Last year, when Snowden began leaking details of NSA spying programs and left the country, administration officials played down his work history, using descriptions such as “systems administrator” to describe his role at the agency. In June, President Barack Obama himself told reporters: “No, I’m not going to be scrambling jets to get a 29-year-old hacker.”
Snowden told Williams that those terms were “misleading.”
In the Defense Intelligence Agency job, Snowden said, he “developed sources and methods for keeping our information and people secure in the most hostile and dangerous environments around the world.”
“So when they say I’m a low-level systems administrator, that I don’t know what I’m talking about, I’d say it’s somewhat misleading,” he said.
The Defense Intelligence Agency confirmed to NBC News that Snowden, as a contractor, had spoken at three of their conferences. Two intelligence sources tell NBC that Snowden worked for the CIA at an overseas station in IT and communications.
The CIA declined to comment on Snowden’s employment or his role at the agency, instead referring to the testimony of Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, specifically his statement before the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence in January of this year:
“Snowden claims that he’s won and that his mission is accomplished. If that is so, I call on him and his accomplices to facilitate the return of the remaining stolen documents that have not yet been exposed, to prevent even more damage to U.S. security.”
The NBC News interview was conducted last week in Moscow after months of preparation. Russia has granted Snowden temporary asylum.
Williams has described the interview as “months in the making and cloaked in the secrecy of his life as a fugitive living in exile overseas.”
Snowden, now 30, left the government and later worked for private intelligence contractors inside NSA outposts, including in Japan and Hawaii.
While working for the contractors, he downloaded up to 1.7 million secret documents about U.S. intelligence-gathering and partnerships with foreign allies, according to U.S. officials, including some that revealed the extent of data collection from U.S. telephone records and Internet activity.
The United States charged him with espionage and revoked his passport. Snowden flew to Moscow but was unable to continue to Latin America because he no longer had a passport.
Among the revelations in the documents taken by Snowden was the NSA’s bulk collection of phone and Internet metadata from U.S. users, spying on personal communications of foreign leaders, and the NSA’s ability to tap undersea fiber-optic cables and siphon data.
Obama appointed a review board that criticized the domestic data collection. In March the president recommended ending bulk domestic metadata collection, and last week the House passed a bill to end it.

UFO mania: Mysterious Deaths Of College Students Blamed On 'Russian Yeti'
UFO mania: Mysterious Deaths Of College Students Blamed On 'Russian Yeti'
Investigators baffled by the unexplained and gruesome deaths of Russian college students decades ago have come up with a new suspect, albeit an unlikely one: the Yeti.
On February 2, 1959, nine college students climbed the icy slopes of Dyatlov Pass in the Ural Mountains of Russia. They never made it out alive. The students bodies were found with broken ribs and fractured skulls. In one grotesque case, a woman's eyes had been gouged out and her tongue was missing.
At the time of the tragedy, investigators cryptically declared the Dyatlov Pass deaths were due to a "compelling natural force," according to a new televisiondocumentary reexamining the case.
Since the massacre occurred during the Cold War, some have speculated the students were killed by a top secret Soviet weapon. Others claim an indigenous tribe lashed out at the hikers for trespassing.
However, the murder site doesn't seem to jibe with those explanations:
A new documentary, "Russian Yeti: The Killer Lives" airing June 1 on the Discovery Channel explores the remote possibility that a "menk" -- the Russian word for Yeti -- may have been responsible.
Considering the existence of the Yeti has never been proven, blaming it for the grisly deaths is a stretch. But there are some strange aspects to the massacre, according to explorer Mike Libecki, the star of the program.
For instance, one of the tents was slashed from the inside and some of the victims left their clothing behind in subzero weather.
Even stranger to Libecki has been the Russian government's suppression of the autopsy and other reports for 30 years.
“I’ve spent a lot of time alone in the mountains and have had my share of near-death experiences,” he said in a press release. “I know if I went missing, I’d want my family to know what happened to me.”
In order to explore the Yeti theory, Libecki visited Russia to meet with Yeti expert Igor Burtsev of the International Center of Hominology.
"He's the world's leading expert on the Russian Yeti," Libecki said on the documentary. "He's dedicated his entire life to search for this creature."
Burtsev, 73, says he has "mountains of evidences" suggesting the creature's existence in the Ural mountains, but "nobody wants to see them."
Based on his research, Burtsev says the Russian Yeti is most notable for large feet.
"They have bigger foot than the human, and they have short necks, almost without necks," he said on the show. "[The footprints are] everywhere. For last 50 years, I've find signs of Yeti, confirmed by reports of eyewitnesses. They're about 5,000."
Libecki is impressed by Burtsev's data.
"That's a huge number of sightings for a creature that supposedly doesn't exist," he said.
The complete findings won't be announced until the documentary airs Sunday night, but the documentary's title, "Russian Yeti: The Killer Lives," might provide a subtle clue.

Dutch scientists say human teleportation is 'possible' - May 30, 2014
In a paper published on Thursday in the journal Science, physicists at the Kavli Institute of Nanoscience at the Delft University of Technology reported that they were able to transport an atom three metres with 100% accuracy.
Moreover, the scientists are now closer to definitively proving Einstein wrong in his early disbelief in the notion of entanglement, in which particles separated by light-years can still appear to remain connected, with the state of one particle instantaneously affecting the state of another.
They report that they have achieved perfectly accurate teleportation of quantum information over short distances. They are now seeking to repeat their experiment over the distance of more than a kilometer.
If they are able to repeatedly show that entanglement works at this distance, it will be a definitive demonstration of the entanglement phenomenon and quantum mechanical theory.
Nothing in the laws of physics fundamentally forbids the teleportation of large objects, including humans, researchers claim.
Prof Hanson, from Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands: "If you believe we are nothing more than a collection of atoms strung together in a particular way, then in principle it should be possible to teleport ourselves from one place to another." Read full articles here and here
Scientists Report Finding Reliable Way to Teleport Data
By JOHN MARKOFF
Scientists in the Netherlands have moved a step closer to overriding one of Albert Einstein’s most famous objections to the implications of quantum mechanics, which he described as “spooky action at a distance.”
In a paper published on Thursday in the journal Science, physicists at the Kavli Institute of Nanoscience at the Delft University of Technology reported that they were able to reliably teleport information between two quantum bits separated by three meters, or about 10 feet.
Quantum teleportation is not the “Star Trek”-style movement of people or things; rather, it involves transferring so-called quantum information — in this case what is known as the spin state of an electron — from one place to another without moving the physical matter to which the information is attached.
Classical bits, the basic units of information in computing, can have only one of two values — either 0 or 1. But quantum bits, or qubits, can simultaneously describe many values. They hold out both the possibility of a new generation of faster computing systems and the ability to create completely secure communication networks.
A forest of optical elements that was part of the quantum teleportation device used by the team of physicists in the Netherlands.
Moreover, the scientists are now closer to definitively proving Einstein wrong in his early disbelief in the notion of entanglement, in which particles separated by light-years can still appear to remain connected, with the state of one particle instantaneously affecting the state of another.
They report that they have achieved perfectly accurate teleportation of quantum information over short distances. They are now seeking to repeat their experiment over the distance of more than a kilometer. If they are able to repeatedly show that entanglement works at this distance, it will be a definitive demonstration of the entanglement phenomenon and quantum mechanical theory.
Succeeding at greater distances will offer an affirmative solution to a thought experiment known as Bell’s theorem, proposed in 1964 by the Irish physicist John Stewart Bell as a method for determining whether particles connected via quantum entanglement communicate information faster than the speed of light.
“There is a big race going on between five or six groups to prove Einstein wrong,” said Ronald Hanson, a physicist who leads the group at Delft. “There is one very big fish.”
In the past, scientists have made halting gains in teleporting quantum information, a feat that is achieved by forcing physically separated quantum bits into an entangled state.
But reliability of quantum teleportation has been elusive. For example, in 2009, University of Maryland physicists demonstrated the transfer of quantum information, but only one of every 100 million attempts succeeded, meaning that transferring a single bit of quantum information required roughly 10 minutes.
In contrast, the scientists at Delft have achieved the ability “deterministically,” meaning they can now teleport the quantum state of two entangled electrons accurately 100 percent of the time.
They did so by producing qubits using electrons trapped in diamonds at extremely low temperatures. According to Dr. Hanson, the diamonds effectively create “miniprisons” in which the electrons were held. The researchers were able to establish a spin, or value, for electrons, and then read the value reliably.
In addition to the possibility of an impregnable quantum Internet, the research holds out the possibility of networks of quantum computers.
To date, practical quantum computers, which could solve certain classes of problems far more quickly than even the most powerful computers now in use, remain a distant goal. A functional quantum computer would need to entangle a large number of qubits and maintain that entangled state for relatively long periods, something that has so far not been achieved.
A distributed quantum network might also offer new forms of privacy, Dr. Hanson suggested. Such a network would make it possible for a remote user to perform a quantum calculation on a server, while at the same time making it impossible for the operator of the server to determine the nature of the calculation.

"Teleporteren van mensen is mogelijk"
“Teleporteren van mensen is mogelijk”
Wetenschappers van de TU Delft zijn er als eersten in geslaagd om informatie succesvol te teleporteren. Ze verplaatsten gegevens over een afstand van drie meter, zonder dat de informatie door de tussenliggende ruimte reisde.
“We teleporteren de staat van een deeltje,” zei professor Ronald Hanson. “Als je gelooft dat we niets meer zijn dan een verzameling atomen die op een bepaalde manier met elkaar zijn verbonden, moet het in principe mogelijk zijn om onszelf te teleporteren.”
“Het is in de praktijk bijna niet te doen, maar het is tegelijkertijd gevaarlijk om te zeggen dat het nooit zal lukken,” ging hij verder. “Ik sluit het niet uit omdat er geen natuurkundige wet is die het verbiedt. Als het al zal gebeuren, zal dat ver in de toekomst zijn.”
Het team van professor Hanson heeft voor het eerst laten zien dat het mogelijk is om informatie in subatomische deeltjes met een zekerheid van 100 procent over een afstand van drie meter te teleporteren.
De teleportatie van informatie is een belangrijke stap naar een kwantumnetwerk voor communicatie tussen toekomstige supersnelle kwantumcomputers. De informatie werd geteleporteerd door elektronen met elkaar te verstrengelen.
Volgens Albert Einstein kon verstrengeling niet bestaan; hij noemde het ‘spookachtige actie op afstand’. Wetenschappers hebben intussen herhaaldelijk aangetoond dat het fenomeen echt bestaat. Het onderzoek is verschenen is de nieuwste editie van het tijdschrift Science.
Kwantumteleportatie kan worden gebruikt voor een kwantumversie van het internet, een wereldwijd netwerk voor het versturen van kwantuminformatie. Aankomende zomer is Hanson van plan het experiment te herhalen over een afstand van 1300 meter in diverse gebouwen van de TU Delft.
Gehoopt wordt dat het experiment een antwoord geeft op Einsteins bezwaar tegen teleportatie, de mogelijkheid dat een signaal met de lichtsnelheid verstrengelde deeltjes passeert. “Ik denk dat het gaat lukken,” aldus Hanson. “Maar het is een enorme uitdaging. Er is een reden waarom het nog nooit eerder is gelukt.”

Filer’s Files # 22 – 2014 – War of the Sons of Light and Sons of Darkness - PART I
In special reports, this week’s files cover: Mysterious Objects Appear in our Skies, It's a Great Big Wonderful World We Live On, War of the Sons of Light and Sons of Darkness; The War Over Men’s Souls? Captain Robert Durant Passes On, and Edward Snowden NBC Interview
Unidentified Aerial Phenomena sightings were reported over: Arkansas, California, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Hawaii, Michigan, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and Washington. Sightings of UFOs were also reported in: Australia, Belize, Canada, Germany, Mexico, Puerto Rico, and England and Wales in the United Kingdom. The Filer Research Institute feels the scientific study of UFOs is for the benefit of humankind and is an important endeavor. The weekly intelligence report provides you with information on the latest sightings and UFO news that you need to understand the world situation. The purpose of these files is to report the UFO eyewitness and photo/video evidence that occurs on a daily basis around the world and in space. These Files assume that extraterrestrial intelligent life not only exists, but my hypothesis is that the over a thousand UFOs reported each month represent technologically advanced spacecraft conducting surveillance of Earth. I personally became interested in UFOs when London Control ordered me to intercept one over England while flying for the US Air Force and Prince Phillip told me of his personal interest in UFOs. The US Air Force investigated UFOs for more than twenty years under Project Blue Book; and I continue this advanced research. I believe the God of the universe has spread life throughout the cosmos and UFO’s are visiting us in ever-increasing numbers.

"The number of thoughtful, intelligent, educated people in full possession of their faculties who have "seen something" and described it, grows every day... We can... say categorically that mysterious objects have indeed appeared and continue to appear in the sky that surrounds us. General Lionel M. Chassin, Commanding General of the French Air Forces,
It's a Great Big Wonderful World We Live On
We live on one of the great jewels in the universe and that is one of the main reasons we are being visited. The visitors have been giving us a message, but many cannot see it or understand it. Our Creator gave us this Earth to take care of and we must do a better job. The reader should understand, I'm a UFO advocate, and I firmly believe there is enough evidence to launch scientific research into the phenomenon of UFOs. I have studied this field for thirty years, and not one week has gone by without new and significant news on the subject. Many people do not accept the phenomenon as fact, since their life experiences are not equivalent to my own. I understand that we are each given certain wisdom and opportunities. I chased one while in the Air Force and saw this large radar return on my radar screen showing me they were real. My web site started ten years ago and now according to my web master Chuck Warren has one to four million hits a month mostly from people who are searching for answers. As each day goes by, the evidence mounts that something is in our skies besides the normal planets, stars, aircraft, or balloons. We obtain fifty reports from various sources each day. A solid core of 20 to 25 percent appear as unknown and unidentified. There are several likely possibilities of what causes these hard core reports: One is a type of misunderstood plasma or other unknown phenomenon. Others simply point to classified military aircraft or alien life forms thought to live somewhere on Earth, or perhaps in a different dimension or under the sea. One of the most likely causes is that we are being visited by alien space ships. Over the last three years I have attempted to provide the reader with some of the most interesting cases and new evidence, but our resources are limited.
Our skies are being lit up with signs and wonders and orbs of various colors as well as craft of various descriptions. I feel they are sending a message. The message does not appear to be one of destruction, but more of hope, love, rebirth and good news. We are apparently being warned, signaled, given a sign of wonders and given a lamp of guidance. There is also a dark side of evil or at least that may harm and abduct people and animals. Most of the message is to comfort the lonely, an encourage us to protect our Earth and its weakest creatures. I feel they are saying it is time to clean up our act morally, spiritually and environmentally. People from every walk of life including several of our Presidents have seen these signs. Leaders in Chile, Brazil, and France are actively searching for them. The US Air Force spent over twenty years up until 1969 chasing them, and key Generals like Twining and Chidlaw acknowledged they were here. My own search continues. These files are free, but I can always use your help in uncovering the most important secrets of mankind and the universe. I invite you to join our quest and with God's help we will reach our goals. The visitors or angels have come across space and time to bring a message that God loves us and cares. He created this world and its treasures and protects us from most harm, and He has given a set of instructions to live by. If we do as we are asked and grow, we can join with other civilizations in the universe.
War of the Sons of Light and Sons of Darkness
Astronauts have always been distinguished men of valor and exploits. A couple of years ago, Dr. Edgar Mitchell and I had a brief conversation after we spoke to about fifty Congressional staff personnel in Washington DC as part of the Disclosure Hearings. He indicated we may be visited by some type of intelligence from space. I asked Edgar, “What he thought was the real secret to all of this concerning UFOs?” He said, "The answers are all in the Dead Sea Scrolls." I said, "You mean like the Sons of Light and Darkness?"
He said, “Yes but even now not all of the scrolls have not been revealed”. I searched the scrolls myself later to find some meaning. The text of the "War of the Sons of Light and Sons of Darkness" describes where two sides are in an apocalyptic battle for Earth. "Warrior angels are in our muster, and He that is mighty in War is in our throng. The army of His spirits marches beside us. Our horsemen come like clouds or like banks of dew, to cover the earth, or like torrential showers, to rain judgment on all that grows in it. Opposing the good forces are the forces of darkness.
Dead Sea Scrolls Museum Jerusalem, Israel
But for corruption thou hast made Belial, an angel of hostility. All his dominion is darkness and guilt. All the spirits that are associated with him are angels of destruction. They follow only the laws of darkness, and their craving is directed toward it." Pages 414-416 The Dead Sea Scriptures. The Dead Sea Scrolls from this particular parchment also reveals that many inspired Masters as well as teachers will take the lead when that time should arise. This calls for you to exercise faith on a scale which you have never attempted before. Inasmuch as the Lord stated that He would be with us at all times; you will be a victor and never go down to defeat. The Great Creator has given every last one a measure of faith. The more you realize the potential power that has been placed within you, the more you will exercise that power which comes from above. It is also imperative that you know yourself as well as your own human limitations.
The War Over Men’s Souls?
Brett Allen writes, “In 30 years of researching the paranormal, I always believed there had to be some correlating unifying theory to both ghosts and UFOs. My research into the paranormal has proven one thing… spirit orbs I once thought were hooey, are very real. They appear to be the manifestation of the human soul after we die; often visible to ultraviolet and infrared non-filtered cameras.”
Today’s cameras pick them up because it is much cheaper to manufacture them without such filters. This is why both UFOs (who the ancient s said were “spirit” gods who could take human form-cloaked in the UV and IR) and ghosts can be captured by today’s technology, when not visible to the human eye. The ancient Mesopotamia bible spoke of both spirits and the soul. Nearly every ancient civilization makes reference to the soul; Egypt built a technological civilization around them. They were quite obviously doing something with high voltage; Tesla coils and particle accelerators, to harness and launch the soul. From the Zoroastrians, to Mesopotamia, even the Maya and pre-Columbians, all had this knowledge.
My work with spirit orbs, both in my own haunted study location, and in photos sent to me by friends, shows obvious faces show up in these orbs. But perhaps UFOlogist and NASA/CIA insider John Lear puts it all in perspective when he claims there was a soul capturing and processing machine that the alien’s operate on our moon. In fact NASA’s recent bombing of the Moon may have been to destroy one such structure. Recent photos captured over my own home, on a lake where some 4000 graves were opened may also vindicate his claims. A bright light on a rectangular UFO was seen with what the ancients referred to as a GATE hanging off the end of the rectangle. I believe the craft was sweeping the area for “lost souls.” If this is not true, why are there so many references to the soul in ancient cultures. In the Bible there are 457 references to the soul and Christians are promised to go to heaven when their body dies if they believe in Jesus.
The soul or the spirit of humans is immortal. However the soul can be lost Mark 8-36 states, “What good is it for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul?” “We wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against 'principalities,' against 'powers,' against the 'rulers of darkness of this world' , against 'spiritual wickedness' in high places" Eph 6-12 Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather, be afraid of the One who can destroy both soul and body in hell.Matthew 10:28.
There are red orb seen all over the world and in Egypt they are often called serpent of the dragon. In the Solomon Islands, dragon orbs can be seen going in and out of the sea where the Battle of Guadalcanal was fought. Often in war UFOs and Foo Fighters are everywhere. Why is the human soul so important? Extraterrestrials once called Angels are here for one thing, the soul. How many reports come back from abductees saying the aliens seemed to be interested in my soul. It’s as if they separated me from my soul; because they did?. The scary part is I came to this conclusion before over hearing of John Lear or his claim. In the 90s I had a very strange visitor who refused to identify himself, only that we worked with a group that was aware of my work; and if I was deemed worthy, they might release to me the answers. He interviewed me, a journalist and media professional, about my world views on religion, aliens and the paranormal. Since that time, although seeing them since youth, I have seen many more UFOs, and many red orbs.
On 21st, March 2004, John Lear (who brought the world the story Bob Lazar, and has flown all types of aircraft and has 19,000 flying hours) was on the Art Bell Show stating very disturbing information.
Lear stated on Coast 2 Coast AM, that “A massive cube has been found on the moon, and that this cube is responsible for not only holding human souls here on Earth, but that after you die, the cube pulls your soul to it, and then erases your memory, and reinserts your soul into a new baby to repeat the process over again”.
Our moon was brought here from another star system long ago, as part of the experiment. Earth was taken over about 200 thousand years ago, and Humanity is a genetically engineered slave race. It is the souls of light that are the real reason for all of this because Reptilians need a constant supply of emotional food to enable them to do anything. Without a fuel source, negative souls are dead in the water, and are completely powerless." In the Holy Quran at the time of death it is the soul (nafs) which is taken away as in the verse:"And no soul can die but with Allah's permission" (4:144). On the Day of Judgment it is the soul which will appear before Allah: "And every soul comes, with it a driver and a witness"(50:21). This soul will be given a different body after death, and will enter into hell or heaven. In short, since soul is the essence of man, everything that is given in this earthly life is given to the soul, and so too will be the rewards and punishment of the Hereafter. "To Allah belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is in the earth."
Mankind is an alien controlled experiment. The secret government knows about this experiment but is hiding it from us. The aliens refer to us as containers. There is a cube on the Moon with an antenna.
According to Lear, The antenna sends and receives souls. If someone dies an unscheduled death the antenna doesn't pick up their soul and the resulting energy remains on Earth as a ghost. When there is a major disaster like 911 the aliens send down giant soul collectors to recover the souls. Thanks to Brett Allen
Editors Note: I don’t know if these theories are true but they certainly suggest intense research is needed. What do you think?
Snowden Patriot or Traitor
. "The Snowden effect has been a very, very severe one," Stephen Phipson, a director at Britain's Office for Security and Counter Terrorism (OSCT), told a London security conference. Terrorists have substantially changed their methods of communication since leaks by Snowden, hindering intelligence agencies' efforts to track them, a senior British security official told Reuters. He claims National Security Agency's (NSA) controversial intelligence-gathering programs has prevented 54 terrorist attacks around the world, including 13 in the United States.
The NBC TV program “Inside the Mind Edward Snowden” aired on “NBC News” with news anchor Brian Williams on May 28. It is Snowden’s first-ever American television interview. Snowden's decision to leak NSA documents "developed gradually, dating back at least to his time working as a technician in the Geneva station of the CIA. Snowden first made contact with Glenn Greenwald, a journalist working at The Guardian Newspaper, in late 2012. The Washington Post and The Guardian won the "public service award" for exposing the "widespread surveillance" and for helping to spark a "huge public debate about the extent of the government's spying". The Guardian's chief editor, Alan Rusbridger said, "Snowden performed a public service.” Brian Williams traveled to Moscow to interview the former NSA contractor, and CIA operative. “Williams' revealing conversation with Snowden who lives in exile was conducted for several hours. Russian president Vladimir Putin gave him asylum. Snowden is considered a fugitive and the US last year charged Snowden with espionage and has requested his extradition to the States -- a request Russia denied. During his interview with NBC, Snowden claims he destroyed the classified information before he flew to Russia and they have not bothered him. He pays his own way and has not been offered money or threats to talk. Snowden says, “We get our best data from computers.” He worked as a spy living overseas in two countries using false names and identity. He claims, we have lost freedoms based on Espionage Laws put into effect after 9/11. Snowden feels the Government has gone overboard collecting information on almost everyone/ He stated, “It’s the lack of respect for the public — because of the — lack of respect for the intrusiveness of surveillance.” “I’ve never told anybody this. But I was on Fort Meade on September 11th right outside the NSA. I remember the tension of that day. I remember hearing on the radio the planes hitting. And I remember thinking my grandfather, who worked for the FBI at the time — was in the Pentagon when the plane hit it. I take the threat of terrorism seriously. And I think it’s really disingenuous for — for the government to invoke — and sort of scandalize our memories, to sort of exploit — the national trauma that we all suffered together and worked so hard to come through to justify programs that have never been shown to keep us safe, but cost us liberties and freedoms that we don’t need to give up and our Constitution says we should not give up.” He joined the Army Special Forces and broke both legs and was released. He feels the Iraq war was launched on false intelligence. He has seen faults in the intelligence system from within. Snowden claims any cell phone can be turned on, take pictures, record, and follow the pattern of your life. They can even tell who you are sleeping with. NSA has a computer program to get inside your thought process and he is very concerned about the lack of respect for the public’s freedom. He raised complaints and concerns to NSA’s General Counsel at Ft. Mead and Hawaii to change NSA's methods. He claims he did not take any documents that could hurt individuals. He felt anyone could walk into NSA and easily take information since it is not audited. He handed the documents to Glenn Greenwald and various newspapers such as NY Times and the Washington Post and they published the material after checking with the US Government. Snowden stated: “I think the most important idea is to remember that there have been times throughout history where what is right is not the same as what is legal. Sometimes to do the right thing, you have to break a law. And the key there is in terms of civil disobedience. You have to make sure that what you’re risking, what you’re bringing onto yourself does not serve as a detriment to anyone else.” He would like to return but expects a jail sentence. There have been radical changes in Government since 9/11 and he feels he is protecting the country because the mass collection needs to end. Many reforms have already occurred based on his release of this information. He feels senior officials have power they should not have. Snowden described himself as a patriot for trying to stop violations of the Constitution. Secretary of State John Kerry feels he is a traitor and a coward. He is undermining America around the world by stealing Government secrets and revealing the US has been obtaining data from many of its citizens and people around the world. Thanks to NBC
Captain Robert Durant Passes On
PENNINGTON - Captain Robert Joseph Durant was a commercial pilot friend of mine and avid UFO researcher who passed away peacefully at his home in New Jersey on May 21, 2014, following a 2-1/2 year struggle from the effect of a stroke. He was born on July 7, 1938, in Akron, Ohio. He He is survived by his wife, Mauricette; son Stefan R. Durant, and daughter Jennifer L. Mohr. Bob graduated from the Case Institute of Technology in Cleveland, Ohio in 1960 with a degree in electrical engineering and entered US Navy flight training and was commissioned a lieutenant and flew helicopters. Upon discharge, he joined Pan American Airways in 1967 as a pilot, rising to the rank of captain. Bob continued flying internationally with Delta Airlines, retiring in 1998. He was a licensed ham radio operator. He had learned Remote Viewing from Ingo Swan and they had viewed the Moon and saw aliens conducting mining operations in a dark soil. He made a DVD claiming Roswell was the Holy Grail of Ufology, called “Roswell Yes”, the best report ever made about the crash of an extraterrestrial vehicle. A loving and devoted husband, father, grandfather and friend, he will be sorely missed. Condolences for the family may be offered online at www.wilsonapple.com
Holland Tall Grass Crop Circle
Hoeven– Nancy Talbot, BLT Research reports, “Shortly after dark on Tuesday night, April 22nd, Robbert got the feeling that another circle was coming and that it would be near the village of Hoeven where he grew up. As Roy was with Robbert that evening they drove to the farm fields around Hoeven, repeatedly checking a particular field (one with tall grass) which Robbert “saw” in his "mind’s eye” as the one where the new formation would be—but they could find nothing.
When Robbert got back to his apartment, he Skyped Nancy, during which conversation he repeated his strong feeling that a new circle was coming—saying that now he could not only “see” what it would look like, he could also “smell” the grass in which it would appear. I (Nancy) immediately asked him to make a sketch of what he “saw” and hold it up so I could see it through Skype, so I could be a witness to the accuracy of his “vision” when the actual formation appeared. Having worked with Robbert since 1997, he is always accurate about these “knowings” about where and/or what “design” new formations will be. I expected that a new formation would appear soon. He drew a rough sketch of what he “saw” and held it up to his Skype camera so I could see it.
This is the sketch that Robbert showed me through his Skype camera on the night of April 22-23rd— about 24 hours before it appeared and compare it with Yvonne’s aerial photo taken in the morning at the right.
On Wednesday the 23rd Robbert was in meetings with the author of a new book (in Dutch) about him which has just come out and some other visitors, and so was with many people all day. After dinner with this group Robbert was driven back to home around 9:15 pm where he soon “felt the energies” again and “saw” (in his mind’s eye) a flash of light over the same field where he and Roy had looked the night before. Finally his feeling that the new formation was coming was so strong he called Roy again (Roy lives 25 minutes away, by car), to ask if he'd come back so they could go check the field again. Robbert felt the same urgency as would a father-to-be who has just been told his wife has gone to the hospital to give birth — that to him "these crop circles feel like my children.” After an hour or so Roy returned and at midnight they reached the same field and this time could immediately see the new formation in the tall grass that looks just like the drawing that Robbert showed me thru Skype the night before.
There is a large (22m+ overall diameter) thin ring with nine circles and one large ring inside it, forming a lovely cross…with three circles leading up to the edge of the big thin ring (overall length = 28m).
When Roy returned in the morning he spoke to the “overseer" of the fields and stopped to speak to him. This man said, “He has been patrolling his area for decades, day and night, to protect the area from poachers. In all this time he has never seen a formation being made by Robbert (or anyone else); in spite of the fact that many circles have been found in this area over the years. And he told Roy he can find no explanation for how these many crop circles have occurred….that, to him, this is a genuine mystery.” The farmer indicated that he does not want people in the field since the grass is very tall and ready to be mowed and would be cut quickly. He did not mind that Roy took photos.
Robbert said that the “energy” in this formation is very strong and “fresh” and, if he receives a “message” related to the formation he will get that info posted on his website. http://www.robbertvandenbroeke.nl/graancirkelarchief.

Chinese Lunar Images
US and China now have satellites over the Moon and China has landed the Chang'e-3 lander and launched the Yutu Rabbit Rover. The Chinese government is slowly releasing lunar images that confirm structures and tall towers on the Moon. The images are on the official Chinese Army website, and they will likely be released to show the world the US has kept secret alien capabilities.
Chinese TV imagery shows a pyramid like structure and domes indicating the aliens are likely monitoring Earth. “http://chn.chinamil.com.cn/jwjj/2013-12/22/content_5701132.htm

Sightings in the United States
Arkansas Flashing Lights
Hot Springs-- I was sitting in the courtyard at work on May 26, 2014, and looking up and I saw a sudden flash of light in my peripheral vision and attempted to locate the craft. After a few seconds, I saw the light flashing again as it rapidly flashed a white light as it moved silently west. It made a 110 degree turn to the right and was now heading NE. It meandered back to the west again for a few seconds and then turned once again to the NE. At the point, I lost sight of it so I went through the building out to the other side, quickly grabbing a coworker who also saw a flash of light and three streaks of light. Thanks to MUFON CMS
Simi Valley-- My good friend from MIT has been dissecting my photos for the past five days and he can't find any reason for the object in my pictures, so there for it will be unexplained on May 18, 2014. I’m not looking for any gain so it would be fine to post the images. He made it clear to me to disclose that there are photos of an object that is in a curious contrast to current known aircraft and weather phenomenon.
I happened to stop at Rocky Peak with my dog at 5:05 AM and noticed the sunrise over San Fernando/Simi Valley. I grabbed my camera (Nikon D7000) and proceeded to snap a few pictures. This cylinder was the last thing I would have expected to catch on camera. Some hikers asked me, "Did you see the strange "scaffold" in the sky? Thanks to MUFON CMS
Sarasota – On May 21, 2014, the light was going up, down, made turns with all strange movements and was just stopping and hovering. The sighting was near Davis Highway and Highway 90. I took this video with my Galaxy 4 tablet at 6:45 AM Note: The video shows a light moving (relative to stationary background objects), then reversing direction and moving down. An inverted image analysis makes the light easier to see and shows the erratic movements. Thanks to William Puckett, Director http://www.UFOsnw.com
Georgia Red Mass
Conyers -- My friend and I and the dog were standing outside when we both looked up in the sky and saw this massive object. It must have been at a 1,000 feet high. He looked at me and said "Grab your camera" so I did and filmed it. Note -- Photo was increased in brightness. Thanks to MUFON CMS
Kahului -- I was inside our kennel building and my husband called me telling me there was something crazy in the sky and to grab my camera and go outside immediately on May 20, 2014. So I did and took a couple photos. Thanks to MUFON CMS
Aurora-- As I walked outside to photograph Mars to the West I noticed a bright orange orb in the flight path of O'Hare Airport on May 22, 2014. I grabbed my new Nikon camera and tried to snap shots as fast as possible. Within the span of two minutes it was gone but managed to get a few images right in telephoto lens. Thanks to MUFON CMS
Sellersburg-- I saw two lights from about ten miles away on May 26, 2014, as I got closer the object was moving very slow so I pulled into a road and got out of my car, as I stood there I managed to take one very bad picture but I heard no sound and as it flew over me I saw it had three lights, one in the front and two in the back with a dim white light to connect all three, their light was pure white and very bright and it flew right over me as clear as day and was about 100 feet in length and about 600 feet in the air, I watched as it proceeds to fly over the nearby football field without a sound or any flashing lights, I realized that what I saw wasn't from this world and I got back in the car and drove home this whole sighting was around 3-4 minutes in length. Thanks to MUFON CMS
North Carolina Activity
Hickory -- This activity has been observed for the last few years. Activity can only be documented with the aid of a digital camera. I had been recording flying cigars, cones, and discs for some time. On this particular afternoon I was hoping to get more digital shots of the flying cigars. Upon viewing the camera cards on the computer, I realized this was not the usual cigars but something else. It was wide, flat and moved through the sky as if being flown under control. There are 6 digital shots, showing the subject coming into view on the lower left. It would appear that this is a UFO that has under gone morph sis. Thanks to MUFON CMS
Raleigh -- I was photographing the Camelopardalids shower when I noticed these three star like objects moving east on May 24, 2014. They were moving slowly, in a triangle like formation slower than a satellite and had no blinking lights. If they had stopped moving, they would appear as stars, like they were that far away. They continued to move to east and faded away moving out into space. I was shooting long exposures and have two images. I was in awe at what I was seeing and only lost sight when they faded away. Thanks to MUFON CMS
On May 22, 2014, I left work and it was raining and pulled into a gas station and saw the rainbow. I rolled my window down and took a picture and went into the store. On my way back to my truck I took one more picture. Later that night I sent them to my buddy and noticed two rainbows and between the rainbows is a rocket shaped thing with flames. I thought I would like you to look. Thanks to MUFON CMS Note: Looks like a rocket launch.
Vancouver – On May 17, 2014, I was driving home with my seven year old son who yelled, "I see an asteroid.” I said, “No you didn't it is a plane.” My son started screaming in panic "fire, fire, call 911," I stopped my truck and saw a huge round ball with huge flames! I could see it close, because it was low in the sky. My son is still screaming and scared. I drove right up into my yard. My son opened the door screaming. I finally found my cell and recorded what I could. It came from Vancouver going at an angle right towards Portland, Oregon. It had to of landed. I had seen it close up it was a huge ball of fire with flames. Others saw what we saw and took pictures. Note: There was a scattered cloud deck at 5,500 feet and skies were overcast at 8,500 feet. Visibility was 10 miles. The object could have been a meteor, but I think this is an unlikely. There was no defined trail. Also given it was seen for 3 minutes and the skies were overcast makes it less likely to be a meteor. Thanks to William Puckett, Director http://www.UFOsnw.com
Worldwide UFO Sightings
Red Rock Canyon -- I was going through my facebook account today when I came across one of my contact's photos of a trip they took to Red Rock Canyon. I don't think they saw what was in their photos. I have since made a comment on their page about it. Thanks to Robert:
Whyalla -- It was roughly 5 AM, and I was laying in bed on May 14th 2014, I was looking out my bedroom window, at the stars and I saw a bright flash of light similar to a spot light, like someone shinning a torch down to the ground, the light was present for 1-2 seconds, before completely vanishing. Then at 6 AM, I saw an object which looked like a bright star that was slowly moving across the morning sky and it faded out several times. I don't know if it dissipated. Thanks to John Hayes
North Lakes, Queensland-- I woke up and decided to look at the stars at 5:14 AM, and saw a weird flickering fast object in the sky on May 15th 2014. Three minutes later I saw another object that was much closer with three bright yellow lights with a bright yellow ring around it. I definitely knew it was a UFO and I was terrified. Ten seconds later it disappeared mysteriously. It is getting to the point where every morning or night I will put a camera outside and record them. I saw two UFOs last month (15th) near my house. Thanks to John Hayes www.UFOinfo.com
Gulf of Mexico– I got up at 4 AM to go the bathroom in our beach house on May 23, 2014, and noticed a bright light hovering over the sea. I knew this was no star so I woke my wife up and told her to grab her camera. This is the second one we have seen and we did not get a picture of the first one. We went out to the beach and it was moving very fast in a small area. She took three photos of it and zoomed in on two. It only seemed like it was a few hundred yards above the sea. After getting the photos we went back to bed and never did see it leave. Thanks to MUFON CMS
Between Fox Creek and Valleyview, Alberta -- I hit the road again heading home on Highway 43 on May 12th 2014, about 1 AM. I noticed a "white light" straight ahead of me in the sky travelling at a good pace. I thought it was a plane descending into the airstrip at Valleyview. The object then made a slight right hand turn and descended more rapidly. As it turned it changed to a blueish green and yellow orange. It seemed to hover for a few seconds and then the object changed back to white and started accelerating rapidly upwards, then splitting into two identical symmetrical objects travelling apart from each other and me. Both objects continued to accelerate faster than any plane, and disappeared into the upper layers of the atmosphere. I have seen many meteorites in the past and they were different as the "broke-up" into fragments and glowed at different "light intensities" coming into the earth’s atmosphere. This was different as I have never seen a "meteorite" accelerate, and ascend and disappear into space. Mitch a trucker who works for the same company as I do also saw the lights.
Vernon, British Columbia– We saw a transparent spherical object with dots connecting on the bottom on May 12th 2014 at 9:15 PM. It would take about 5 minutes for them to connect into a perfect circle, and then it would restart. There were roughly 15-20 dots. After about 20 minutes, the lights went out and one single dot on the bottom started blinking. It almost looked as if it was sucking something up. And it didn't move an inch. Thanks to John Hayes www.UFOinfo.com
Oberhausen -- I was walking with my girlfriend and our dog and we looked into the sky on May 18, 2014, and I saw a round white UFO flying in a straight line that eventually disappeared. The whole event took 30 seconds. Thanks to MUFON CMS
Perote, Veracruz –The disc was not seen with the naked eye, and only was seen in the photos taken on November 14, 2013. In this area there are craters, lakes and volcanoes my colleagues and I have taken many pictures and there appears like a path or something they follow. Thanks to MUFON CMS
Puerto Rico Lights
Caguas -- We were sitting on the balcony at my brother’s house and I saw lights that looked like fire works on May 16, 2014. I then realized there was no smoke. Then the lights started to move and I showed them to my wife and sister in law. We were all in shock. We took pictures and a video with my new camera that stopped working and I had to throw it out. I also believe I have a day light photo but not sure. We took a daylight picture of a round object. Thanks to MUFON CMS
United Kingdom England Sightings
Risca – Photos were taken over a small mining village in Wales nearby Twmblarn. The pictures were taken in October 2011. Note in pictures 744 and 722 the 'hook' shape object, Nothing unusual seen in the skies when pictures taken. Thanks Matt and www.UFOinfo.com
Molesworth, Cambridgeshire– I noticed two star like objects in the distance coming towards me at 2 AM, on May 13th 2104. One of the lights was brighter than the other and went out. I followed the direction of the other light as they passed. I could clearly see three plane type objects uniformly spaced apart. The rear of them appeared to be of a boomerang shape with orange/yellow glows either side with a red glow in the middle. There was also a very slow red strobe light and made a low hum flying west. I am sure the West Harrow witness also saw it.
West Harrow, London -- At 1.13 AM, I saw a very big and bright light moving fast but not leaving any trail behind on May 13, 2014. It was not a shooting star or meteorite. It lasted for 2 or 3 seconds in greenish colours. As it flew above the houses there was a deep faint whooshing sound like a deep engine. The sound would have easily gone un-noticed if the object did not catch my attention first.
Newton Abbot Devon-- I took these photographs at 11.29 AM on May 15, 2014, of what appears to be a domed saucer. I was taking photos of UFOs as I could clearly see them, but my friend could not. There were airplanes nearby the UFOs. I took many UFO photos the same day. Note: Analysis indicates that the two original photos sent by the witness were not edited and were captured by a Fujifilm Fine Pix F900EXR 16MP Digital Camera. It would have been very difficult to have hoaxed these photos because the object could hardly be seen. Thanks to William Puckett, Director http://www.UFOsnw.com

In de naburige Andromedanevel heeft de Swift-ruimtetelescoop van de NASA gisteren een krachtige uitbarsting waargenomen, zo heeft het NBC News gemeld. Vandaag volgen er echter al berichten als zou het om "vals alarm" gaan.
Eerst dachten astronomen en/of astrofysici dat het om een gammaflits ging. Gamma-uitbarstingen zijn de krachtigste explosies in de kosmos en doen zich zelden voor. Ze worden veroorzaakt door een botsing van neutronensterren of zwarte gaten. Nog nooit is er één zo dichtbij gezien.
Later opperden astronomen dan dat de flits misschien door een minder exotisch type van ultraheldere röntgenstraling (ULX) is ontstaan. Zoiets is al gezien, zelfs in de Andromeda die ook als M31 bekendstaat. Wellicht gaat zo'n stralingsbron terug naar reusachtige zwarte gaten die omgevende materie opslokken.
Een derde theorie is dat de flits te maken heeft met een binair röntgensterrensysteem (LMXB).
Indien de eerste hypothese klopt is het de beste mogelijkheid ooit om één van de meest exotische gebeurtenissen in de kosmos te besturen, aldus NBC.
Als er zich een gammaflits in onze Melkweg zou voordoen en naar ons zou gericht zijn, zou die waarschijnlijk onze ozonlaag wegvegen en aan massale vernietiging van leven doen, schreef Business Insider. De dinsdag geziene uitbarsting zou zich 2,5 miljoen jaar geleden hebben voorgedaan. Het licht heeft ons nu pas bereikt.
Onder de hashtag #GRBM31 zorgde het evenement alvast voor veel verkeer op Twitter.
Maar een en ander zou vals alarm zijn geweest, zo blijkt uit een kort rapport van het Swift-XRT team. Het waargenomen signaal zou van een constante bron in M31 zijn.
Midden op de planeet Jupiter zit al eeuwenlang een gigantische rode vlek, een enorme storm, en die vlek wordt steeds kleiner. De doorsnee is nu nog maar 16.500 kilometer, kleiner dan ooit eerder gemeten. Dat blijkt uit nieuw onderzoek van de Amerikaanse ruimtevaartorganisatie NASA, dat de ruimtetelescoop Hubble naar Jupiter heeft laten kijken. De oorzaak van de krimp is niet bekend.
De Grote Rode Vlek is een storm, die vanaf de aarde te zien is met telescopen. De wind haalt er snelheden tot 680 kilometer per uur. Het is niet bekend hoe lang de storm al raast. In de 17e eeuw zagen astronomen de vlek mogelijk al. Een paar jaar geleden slokte de storm een kleinere storm op.
Eind 19e eeuw was de vlek nog ongeveer 41.000 kilometer in doorsnee. Dat betekent dat de aarde er drie keer in zou passen. Rond 1980 was de doorsnee nog maar 23.335 kilometer. De storm bleek in 2009 verder gekrompen, tot bijna 18.000 kilometer, en is nu dus 16.500 kilometer.
Tussen 1996 en 2006 werd de vlek dagelijks een kilometer kleiner. Nu is dat al drie keer zo veel. Als dat continu door zou gaan, is het kenmerk van Jupiter over enkele decennia verdwenen. Wetenschappers durven echter niet te zeggen of het echt zo ver kan komen.
Het ruimtevaartbedrijf SpaceX heeft gisteravond zijn nieuwe ruimtevaartuig Dragon V2 voorgesteld. Die moet binnen drie jaar Amerikaanse astronauten naar het Internationale Ruimtestation (ISS) brengen. Daarmee zal een einde komen aan de afhankelijkheid van de Russische Sojoez.
Het zal de eerste keer zijn dat astronauten vanop Amerikaanse grond de ruimte ingeslingerd worden sinds de laatste vlucht van de spaceshuttle in juli 2011. Sindsdien zijn de Verenigde Staten afhankelijk van de Russische Sojoez-ruimtecapsules om hun astronauten in het ISS te krijgen. Dat kost ongeveer 70 miljoen dollar per zitje.
De Dragon V2 kan zeven astronauten vervoeren en is een grote technologische sprong voorwaarts, aldus de CEO en stichter van SpaceX, de miljardair Elon Musk, tijdens een persevenement in het hoofdkwartier van zijn bedrijf in Californië. Musk is tevens de man achter het autobedrijf Tesla.
Precisie van een helikopter Dankzij stuwkracht en het gebruik van andere technologie om de afdaling te vertraging en controleren, moet de witte V2 in staat zijn op de meeste plaatsen te landen met de precisie van een helikopter. Parachutes worden bij de daling enkel ingezet in geval van defecten. Bovendien is het ruimtevaartuig herbruikbaar, wat grote besparingen oplevert.
"Zolang we raketten en ruimtevaartuigen blijven weggooien, zullen we nooit echte toegang tot de ruimte hebben", legde Musk uit. "Het zal altijd ongelooflijk duur blijven."
SpaceX is een van de vier bedrijven die door het Amerikaanse ruimtevaartbureau Nasa zijn geselecteerd om een capsule te ontwikkelen die astronauten naar het ISS kan brengen. In het partnerschap zitten ook Boeing, Sierra Nevada en Blue Origin. De druk om een capsule voor astronautenvervoer naar het ISS in gebruik te nemen, is sterk verhoogd door de grote spanningen tussen Moskou en Washington, vanwege de crisis in Oekraïne.
Contract van 1,6 miljard dollar De Dragon was het eerste privéruimtetuig dat zich aan het ISS koppelde. Dat gebeurde in 2012, toen de capsule vracht leverde. SpaceX sloot een contract van 1,6 miljard dollar (1,18 miljard euro) met Nasa om in totaal twaalf vrachtmissies naar het ISS uit te voeren. Daarvan vonden al drie succesvolle missies plaats.
Nasa zelf werkt dan weer aan de Orion-capsule, die op een dag astronauten naar een asteroïde en de planeet Mars moet brengen.
Rode planeet Op Mars is een nieuwe krater waargenomen op basis van 'voor en na'-foto's. De meer dan 45 meter brede krater ontstond eind maart 2012 al, maar werd pas een paar maanden geleden per toeval ontdekt door Bruce Cantor. De Amerikaanse nieuwssite Huffington Post spreekt van een primeur, gezien het om de grootste krater gaat die op dergelijke manier gespot werd.
Cantor was op basis van afbeeldingen van de Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter weersvoorspellingen voor de rode planeet aan het opstellen, toen zijn oog op een donkere vlek viel. De wetenschapper bestudeerde vervolgens oudere foto's van de plek. Hij bemerkte dat de krater ontbrak op foto's die genomen waren op 27 maart 2012, maar wel te zien was op die van 28 maart 2012, oftewel een dag later. Onderzoek met een ander instrument bracht uitsluitsel: op foto's die dateren van januari 2014 waren twee kraters te zien waarvan er in januari 2012 nog geen spoor was. De controle bevestigde dat de donkere vlek een nieuwe inslagkrater is.
In de buurt van beide kraters zijn ook meer dan tien kleinere kraters waargenomen, allicht een gevolg van het ontstaan van de grotere kraters. De grootste put is vermoedelijk ontstaan door de inslag van een object zo groot als een wagen. Het betreft een krater van zo'n 48,5 bij 43,5 meter groot. "Het object moet zo'n drie tot vijf meter lang zijn geweest", aldus nog Cantor.
Descriptions of giants are common among religious books and ancient history texts worldwide and as well in Central America, according to UFO The Truth Is Out There Blog.
Like famous western world ancient giants such as Goliath, Og and the Nephilim primarily documented in the Bible, there is documentation of giants who lived, fought, and lost their lives in Central America in ancient times and until the arrival of the Spanish conquistadors.
Italian translation of a Spanish colonial-era manuscript focused on the Tolteca-Chichimeca culture in the Tehuacan Valley named Codex Ríos (AKA Codex Vatican A OR Codex Vaticanus A) depicting Aztec warriors killing and capturing a giant humanoid. The giant’s name mentioned and written in a text near his image that reads Quinametzin – one of the old ones. The name next to the man roping him is Tolteca/Tulan the people preceded the Aztecs states UFO The Truth Is Out There Blog.
According to the translated Aztec accounts of the Spanish invasion, contained in the fascinating The Broken Spears edited by Miguel Leon-Portilla, one of the Aztec hero’s Tzilacatzin, was a giant.
When the Conquistadors first entered Tenochtitlan with hostile intent, it was Tzilacatzin who with three large stones (it says the kind they built walls out of-whatever that means) threw them at the Spaniards chasing them out of the city.

The description of unidentified flying objects (UFOs) has remained fairly consistent throughout history, stretching back into antiquity. While many could be attributed to natural phenomena, an in-depth study by NASA’s Richard Stothers found “There nonetheless remains a small residue of puzzling accounts, and regardless of what interpretation one places on them, these constitute a phenomenon that spans centuries of time and widely different cultures.”
Stothers (1939–2009) received a degree in mathematics at Princeton University, earned his Ph.D. at Harvard, and was a permanent member of the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies.
Here’s a look at 5 UFO sightings Stothers deemed puzzling in a 2007 report.
1. Chariots in the Sky Witnessed by Many
Historian Josephus wrote around 65 A.D. about a fantastical sighting over Judea: “On the 21st of the month Artemisium, there appeared a miraculous phenomenon, passing belief. Indeed, what I am about to relate would, I imagine, have been deemed a fable, were it not for the narratives of eyewitnesses and the subsequent calamities which deserved to be so signalized. For, before sunset throughout all parts of the country, chariots were seen in the air and armed battalions hurtling through the clouds and encompassing the cities.”
Josephus likely witnessed this event himself, said Stothers, though he bolstered his credibility by appealing to eyewitness accounts. The description does not seem to correspond to any natural phenomena, Strothers wrote.
2. Thousands of Roman Soldiers Witness UFO?
Plutarch wrote of a sighting witnessed by thousands. In 74 B.C., the Roman army was moving to engage the forces of King Mithridates VI in the area of modern-day Turkey.
“With no apparent change of weather, but all on a sudden, the sky burst asunder, and a huge, flame-like body was seen to fall between the two armies,” he wrote. “In shape, it was most like a wine-jar (pithoi), and in color, like molten silver. Both sides were astonished at the sight, and separated. This marvel, as they say, occurred in Phrygia, at a place called Otryae.”
Stothers pointed out that freshly fallen meteorites are black, not “molten silver” color, which suggests it was not a meteorite. Plutarch also made no mention of the impact.
Stothers wrote: “The object must have measured much more than a meter across, since it was easily resolved at a distance greater than half the range of a bowshot. If it had remained on the ground, a meteorite of such size would doubtless have become a cult object in Phrygia, with its long tradition of meteorite worship, yet later historical records referring to Phrygian meteorites are silent about it.”
Nonetheless, there is a chance the UFO was a bolide, a bright meteor that often explodes.
3. Sightings During the Second Punic War in Rome

Many sightings were recorded during and following the Second Punic War (218–201 B.C.) in Livy’s prodigy lists. The lists were derived from the Annales Maximi, published by the Pontifex Maximus of Rome. This source is considered trustworthy and accurate, explained Stothers, because of the time-consuming and thorough procedure required by Roman authorities to investigate claims before they would be recorded.
In Rome, in the winter of 218 B.C., “A spectacle of ships (navium) gleamed in the sky.”
In 217 B.C., “at Arpi, round shields (parmas) were seen in the sky.”
In 173 B.C., “at Lanuvium a spectacle of a great fleet was said to have been seen in the sky.”
It is not likely that suggestive cloud formations would have been mistaken for UFOs, Strother said, since these formations had long been understood and were familiar features. These sightings are also not likely a mock sun, because mock suns are routinely described as “double suns” or “triple suns.”
4. ‘Angel Hair’ Glassy Fibers

In modern UFO reports, it is common to hear about either glassy fibers or a chalky substance left behind by the UFO, known as angel hair. Ancient reports also include angel hair.
In 196 A.D., the historian Cassius Dio wrote: “A fine rain resembling silver descended froma clear sky upon the Forum of Augustus. I did not, it is true, see it as it was falling, but noticed it after it had fallen, and by means of it I plated some bronze coins with silver; they retained the same appearance for three days, but by the fourth day all the substance rubbed on them had disappeared.”
Two other “rains of chalk” were reported in Cales 214 B.C. and in Rome 98 B.C.
5. UFO Inhabited
Pope Pius I’s brother was probably the only witness of this UFO sighting near Via Campana, Italy, around 150 A.D.: “On a sunny day, a ‘beast’ like a piece of pottery (ceramos) about 100 feet in size, multicolored on top and shooting out fiery rays, landed in a dust cloud accompanied by a ‘maiden’ clad in white.”
Stothers concluded “This collection of what might be termed ancient UFO reports has been culled from a much larger number of reports of aerial objects, most of whose identifications with known phenomena are either certain or at least probable. Embedded in the mass of relatively explicable ancient reports, however, is a small set of unexplained (or at least not wholly explained) reports from presumably credible witnesses.”
“Any viable theory must reckon with the extraordinary persistence and consistency of the phenomena discussed here over many centuries.”
Als je in Japan ‘kappa’ zegt, wordt iedereen bang. Kappa is een mythisch wezen dat in het water zou leven en lijkt op een kruising tussen een mens en een reptiel. Binnenkort kunnen geïnteresseerden naar gemummificeerde lichaamsdelen van een kappa gaan kijken in de Miyakonojo Shimazu Residence in de preferectuur Miyazaki op het eiland Kyushu.
Volgens RocketNews24 gaat het om een voet en een arm van een kappa die in 1818 is neergeschoten. Foto’s die van de ledematen zijn gemaakt, zien er bizar echt uit. Mensen beweren wel vaker resten van een kappa te hebben gevonden, maar het bleek tot nu toe steeds te gaan om nepskeletten.
Tot en met 22 juni aanstaande kunnen mensen met hun eigen ogen zien of het gaat om iemand die echt overblijfselen van het mythische wezen in bezit heeft. De kappa zouden zich voornamelijk ophouden in vijvers en rivieren. Ze hebben zich aangepast aan leven in en onder water en kunnen dan ook uitstekend zwemmen.
Het bekendste kenmerk van een kappa is een met water gevulde holte op zijn hoofd. Een kappa krijgt zijn kracht grotendeels van het vocht in deze holte. Kappa vallen graag mensen lastig. Volgens verhalen zouden kappa zich zelfs voeden met kinderen die zich te dicht bij het water begeven en met ingewanden van mensen die gaan zwemmen op plekken waar kappa leven.
Bij sommige vijvers en andere wateren staan zelfs vandaag de dag borden om mensen voor kappa te waarschuwen. Kappa zijn echter niet altijd kwaadaardig. Er zijn er ook die nieuwsgierig zijn naar de menselijke beschaving. Ze kunnen in bedwang worden gehouden met komkommer, het enige voedsel waar ze meer de voorkeur aan geven dan vlees.

Regarding why supposedly intelligent people have such difficulties with the Billy Meier case and its impeccably accurate prophecies and predictions
In recent weeks I’ve been sending information on the Billy Meier UFO case, including the prophetically accurate scientific information, to many different people in the mainstream, including scientists, social commentators, etc. Especially in light of NASA aerospace engineer, Matthew Wiezckiewicz’, recent endorsement of the authenticity of the Meier case, I thought that there’d be some responses, even if they were only polite expressions of lack of interest in the information and its historical implications.
Unfortunately though – and unlike what I used to previously experience a lot – they won’t even write back to tell me how bogus and nonsensical, etc., the information and evidence is. Giving them the benefit of the doubt as intelligent people that know the case is genuine, the obvious reason for their silence is that they don’t see how it can profit them, or why they should risk their “credibility” by acknowledging it.
This attitude seems to extend to all sorts of “hard-hitting journalists”, who even complain about the “mainstream media” not doing its job!
For instance, quoting from the founders of one website (whose motto is, “We don’t cover the news – We uncover the truth”) to whom I submitted the information on the Meier case, “Over the years, however, I have learned how the media gatekeepers, both ‘mainstream’ and ‘alternative,’ will not allow the biggest, most disturbing revelations to see the light of day.”
Kinda like something we’ve been saying for a long time as well! So why have they too simply ignored my attempt to communicate with them? Probably for the very same reasons I stated above, as well as possibly some associations in their minds with the utterly delusional, tabloidesque, idiotic ramblings from the “UFO industry” that pollute everything with their bogus UFO “contactees”, “abductees” and “alien hybrid babies” garbage – all of which gains easy access for public dissemination. I don’t know for sure and I…welcome they’re being courageous enough to respond, as of course I’ll be sending them this article.
We live in a world where there are loud public voices such as Ann Coulter’s, which reflect the opinions of a significant numbers of the populace. In fact, her painfully infantile views, suicidally selfish beyond reason and in complete disregard and defiance of nature and its laws – an inevitably painful losing combination – reflect the majority views of an entire political party. Ironically, for truth “uncoverers”, the fact that Meier long, long ago accurately foretold the entire catastrophic environmental (and geopolitical) mess that is right now just unfolding, is something that they too simply don’t want to…uncover.
And while the good folks who “uncover the truth” may be on the so-called right side of many issues, they too have their limits as to how far they will go. The dead-end game of the religiously derived, insane, advantage oriented system of partisan politics infects even those who may think that they’re immune to it. How can we expect them to make the great leap in awareness that requires the clarity, honesty and real intelligence to confront the very politically incorrect truth that is the Meier case?
We are so used to the inevitability of disappointments in our so-called leaders that calling ourselves out on the real sham, our fake surprise and astonishment at such predictability, our dutifully reading our lines, “Hey, can you believe what those guys just did?”, is really long overdo. Because politics, like diplomacy, is institutionalized lying, because it is designed to go firmly against the laws of Creation itself, we’re indeed stuck in the old “doing the same thing, getting the same results” brand of collective insanity.
Several years ago I told Meier that, based on everything I’d read, I didn’t think that the Plejaren actually understood us very well, as least for too long a time. Surprisingly, he agreed with me and explained that they didn’t understand the enormity, depth, breadth and reality of just how much we lied…to ourselves as well as others. It actually surprised me because they, and their forefathers, have obviously been well aware of what goes on in this asylum for far, far, far longer than we have been.
But Meier said that they weren’t really authorized to look more deeply into people’s personal lives, at least for a very long time. The reasoning had been that to do so was a violation of privacy and possibly free will. In other words for a time they pretty much accepted us, as we seemed to represent ourselves, including a lot of the claims by people who said that they were contacted by extraterrestrials themselves. (The revisions and corrections the Plejaren made pertaining to these alleged contactees have also caused some understandable problems and confusion in the case.)
Now, for those of us who through our own extensive research and reasoning have already concluded that the case and its information is real, credible and true, we must recognize that such discussions about the Plejaren are well outside of the frame of reference of the majority of the population and, let’s be honest, seem bizarre and ridiculous. Again though, it’s only because they either haven’t yet done their own due diligence or lack the courage and intellectual honesty required to do so. We know that it’s going to be an immensely long time before significant numbers of people turn their attention to this information, let alone the specific, brilliant spiritual teaching, and the recommendations and advice that could save humanity untold grief if intelligently considered and implemented.
Nonetheless, I will continue to reach out to any and all reasonably intelligent people where there’s even a glimmer of a possibility that they are capable, let alone willing to really uncover the truth and, through their own public presence, offer the same opportunity to their audiences.

Georgia, one of the most ancient and beautiful countries in the world, is situated at the crossroads of Europe and Asia. The name of the country is Sakartvelo in the Georgian language. Georgia is a mountainous country bordered by the Russian Federation in the north, Turkey in the southeast, Armenia in the south, Azerbaijan in the east and by the Black Sea in the west.
Georgia, according to ancient Greek authors, was a fabulously wealthy land with an advanced civilization. The Georgian language is more than 2000 years old; it is one of the world’s oldest languages with its own unique alphabet.
Georgia developed as a kingdom (Kingdom of Kartli, or the Caucasus Iberia) around the IV century BCE (Before Common Era), and reached the height of its prosperity in the XII and XIII centuries.
Georgian culture evolved over thousands of years with its foundations in Colchian and the Caucasus Iberian civilizations, continuing into the ascent of the unified Georgian Kingdom under the single monarchy of the Bagrationi. The royal Bagratid dynasty claimed to be descendants of Biblical King David of Israel.
Georgia is a relatively small country, but for centuries, Georgia’s geographic position has opened it to religious and cultural influences from the West, Persia, Turkey, and Russia; it was a crossroad between Christian and Muslim traditions, a land of ethnic and religious tolerance. The country had suffered foreign invasions and destruction, it was mortally wounded more than a few times, but like the mythical bird Phoenix, it would rise up, rebuild, and proudly live on.
Mosaic of Queen Tamar
In this article we will look at the strange phenomena that occurred in the sky over Georgia in the XIII and XVII centuries. During the reign of Queen Tamar Bagrationi, the great granddaughter of King David IV, the Georgian Kingdom reached the zenith of its political might. Queen Tamar left to her son and heir, Giorgi IV Lasha (he ruled in the years 1212-1223), a powerful and tolerant multinational kingdom with a unique Georgian Christian culture.
King Giorgi was planning to join the Crusaders and expand his kingdom by liberating Jerusalem, but the emergence of nomadic invaders unified by the iron fist of Chinggis Khan (Lord of the Universe), from faraway steppes and deserts, put an end to his plans. The Mongol Empire of Temuzhin (Genghis Khan or Chinggis Khan in Mongolian) was spreading like wild fire through Eurasia, from the shores of the Pacific Ocean to the heart of Europe.The Mongols of the 13th century laid waste to nations, cities, towns, and villages; to the nomads, Chinggis Khan brought glory, the conquests, a code of conduct and organization.
In the year 1206 CE (Common Era), Chinggis Khan proclaimed himself ruler of the Mongol Empire; in 1211 CE, the Khans’ armies started marching east across the Gobi Desert and assaulted China.
It was the policy of Chinggis Khan and his successors that any city or state that resisted the Mongol armies should be destroyed completely.
In the year 1218 CE, the Mongols captured territory in south Kazakhstan and north and south route of Silk Road in China. In that same year of 1218 CE, the invasion of Transoxiana (modern-day southwest Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan and Tajikistan) had taken place.
A Star with a Tail
Grigol Abashidze (1914–1994) was a prominent Georgian writer and academician. He wrote a series of epic historical novels, including Lasharela (1957), Didi ghame (1963), and Tsotne Dadiani anu kartvelta datsema da amaghleba (1975). In this trilogy, Abashidze masterly discussed the history of 13th century Georgia and the establishment of the Mongol yoke. He continued to write well into his age and published his last works at the age of 80, shortly before his death in 1994.
In his novel Lasharela (citing the 1984 Russian language edition, Chapter 24, page 229),Grigol Abashidze described an unusual phenomenon that occurred in the period of Georgia’s history:
…A redoubtable, heretofore unknown power was approaching the country from the East. Neighboring countries to the southeast of Georgia were shrouded in guarded silence. It was as if stifling heat had descended upon earth, and everything living was suspended. A great storm, all devouring fire was coming from the East. Like birds and animals that feel the approach of forest fire and flee to save themselves, caravans of merchants, pilgrims, and wandering dervishes started moving from the Central Asia to the Middle East, to seek refuge. Sheet lightnings of the faraway fire had not yet appeared on the horizon, dark clouds had not yet covered the clear sky, but the proximity of the terrible disaster was felt everywhere and all over. Astrologers read the unavoidability of the approaching disaster through the unusual movement of the planets, and wandering prophets predicted the end of the world was near. In the middle of August, a star with a tail had appeared in the sky. Initially, it was sighted during the Saturday vespers hour. Its tail grew in size each night. In the beginning, the tailed guest appeared only at daybreak, later it became visible also at midnight, and in a few days it brightly glowed all through the night.
It arrived from the East, and its light at first barely reached the ground, but then it strengthened and started glowing so blindingly as to cause people to fear and tremble when they looked at the star. It grew, and assumed the shape of a spear, and other stars faded in the radiance of its rays. The fear that was caused by appearance of an unusual heavenly body was also intensified due to the powerful earthquake that took place in Georgia at the same time. A great temple was destroyed, and four priests perished under its ruins. The Church and astrologers prophesied great calamities, and predicted that the sword of an enemy will shatter peace and quiet of Georgia.
Grigol Abashidze’s Lasharela
While Abashidze does not state the year, it is clear from the analysis of Georgia’s history in general, and his novel Lasharela in particular that the sighting of the unusual heavenly body, or a UFO, took place in 1219 CE.
Abashidze had used a number of sources while working on his wonderful, gripping novels. Among them were historical chronicles written by Rashid-Ed-Din, Ibn El Asir, Nesevi, and Juvein. The primary source Abashidze had used was Kartlis tskhovreba (Alife of Georgia), which narrates Georgia’s history from ancient times to the XIV century.
This was the book about the heroic past of the Georgian people; and it remains a great source for the history of ancient and feudal, medieval Georgia. The first volume contains historical essays giving an account of events that took place in the XII through XIV centuries. These works are by the historian of Queen Tamar, the historian of King Lasha Giorgi, and an anonymous XIV-century author, who wrote of events that took place in the 13th and 14th centuries. Jamtaagmtsera was the name given by researchers to the chronicle of the unidentified chronicler of Georgia, and Jamtaagmtsereli was the name given to this anonymous, but important writer.
If the spear-shaped UFO sighted in 1219 CE was there to observe the coming disasters that would engulf Georgia and its neighbors, then its mission was not in vain. That year, 150 thousand Mongol warriors had attacked the lands ruled by Shah Muhammed II of Khorezm. Their fierce onslaught crushed ancient fortresses of Otrar, Khogent, Urgench, Samarkand, and then Khorezm. The Shah’s son, Jelal-ad-Din Mingburnu, was chased by Mongols throughout Asia, but valiantly fought back when possible. His armies invaded Georgia years later, burned and pillaged much of it in 1226, weakening the kingdom that would face the Mongol empire shortly thereafter.
In the fall of 1220 CE, a detachment of Mongolian soldiers led by military leaders Zhebe-noyon and Subuda-bagatur who pursued the oustedShah Muhammed of Khorezmto the Caspian Sea, reached Azerbaijan, entered Armenia (part of the medieval Georgian kingdom) and defeated King Lasha’s powerful combined army of Georgians and Armenians in the battle of Khunan at the Kotman River. There were around 20,000 Mongol troops, on a reconnaissance mission against some 60,000 Georgians and Armenians. Giorgi Lasha himself was severely wounded in the chest in the battle against the Mongols; he died of his wounds in 1223. The Mongols could not be stopped by any force, and even King Giorgi’s horsemen were no match for them. The Mongol army mainly consisted of lightly armored but heavily armed horse-archers.
The Mongol generals did not plan to conquer the Caucasus at that time and turned back. They returned with a much greater army in January 1221. The battle at Bardav was fought without a clear winner, and the Mongols withdrew to the Caspian Sea. They knew that it would be extremely difficult to fight the brave Georgians in their land, full of gorges and mountains. Much blood would have to be spilled.
The Mongols returned in 1236 in a full-scale invasion, forcing Georgia (weakened by Jelal-ad-Din’s bloody reign) into submission by 1243.

What was that “star with a tail” over Georgia? It possessed rays that reached the ground, and it hovered over the land for days. Was it a triangular UFO, as the description seems to indicate? I will continue searching through the ancient records and chronicles to learn more of this mysterious UFO that visited the kingdom of Georgia in 1219 CE.
One manuscript from the XVII century mentioned another spear-shaped UFO over Georgia.
XVII Century, Georgia under the Ottoman Empire
In the XV century, Georgia became an isolated Christian country surrounded by the Islamic world. The country descended into poverty, lost touch with its co-religionists, and eventually was fragmented into four smaller kingdoms. To preserve their independence and faith, to safeguard their territories from distant tribes moved there by foreign rulers, the Georgian people had waged a bloody and heroic struggle during the next centuries.
The XVII century was full of hardships and suffering for the people of Georgia. But indomitable Georgians rose up to liberate Georgia from the Sefevide Persia and the Ottoman Turkey, on a number of occasions.
Western Georgia belonged to the Osman Ottoman Empire by the terms of the 1639 treaty.
Deacon Zakaria Sarkawagi was a churchman and Armenian historian. He was known as Zakaria of Kanaker, for he was born in 1626 in the village of Kanaker, now a suburb of Yerevan; he died in 1699 in monastery of Hovhannavank (in the present-day Armenia). His writings dealt with the socioeconomic history of the Ottoman Empire in the second half of the 17th century and describe the wars between the Sefevids and the Ottomans in Armenia and Mesopotamia. His manuscripts are kept in Yerevan, in the Matenadaran Archives. Sarkawagi’s writings were published in 1870, Zakaria Sarkawagi patmagrut’iwn (Chronicle).Khronika, translated by M. Darbinian-Melikian (Moscow, 1969) was the Russian translation based on all available manuscripts.
Mikhail Gershtein, the foremost UFO researcher in Russia today, has mentioned two works of Sarkawagi that contain fascinating descriptions of UFOs (Mikhail Gerstein, Po tu storonu NLO, Saint Petersburg, Russia, 2002). He referred to the article published in the extremely popular Soviet magazine Tekhnika-Molodyozhi (Issue 6, 1991), where a number of articles about UFOs, ancient astronaut hypothesis, and paranormal phenomena had been published by its audacious editors during the scant, less ideologically rigid periods of the Soviet era.
The article, titled Kamennaya letopis’ vtorzheniy was written by Akop Tonakanyan, the Chairman of the Ufology Commission of Yerevan, and Vadim Orlov, the science writer for Tekhnika-Molodyozhi. It mentioned two manuscripts of Zakaria Sarkawagi.
One was titled Regarding the fall of light from the sky, and the other manuscript was titled About heavenly signs in the sky.
The first one contains description of a phenomenon that Zakaria Sarkawagi observed in 1641.
In the day the cross was erected, he wrote, during the sunset, it was not dark yet, and the daylight continued. Suddenly, the ether on the eastern side exploded, and descending was a large and blue light. Wide and long, it descended to approach the Earth, and its light illuminated everything around, brighter than the Sun. And the front part of the light rotated like a wheel, moving to the north, red and white (sic), and in front of the light, at the distance of an open palm (of a hand-P.S.) was a star, the size of Venus. My father sand, crying, six sharakans*; the light was still visible, but later departed and became invisible, and we heard later that this wonderful light was observed in Akhaltsikhe *.
In the other manuscript, About heavenly signs in the sky, Zakaria Sarkawagi described a mysterious phenomenon from 1679.
One night everyone saw in the air something (that looked like-P.S.) like a staff and spear. The ends were like those of a lance. They began to turn gradually east and west. This lasted for 20 days, and then quickly disappeared. After that a star appeared; a very large one, of yellow color, with long and bulky hair that pointed to the west. And the hair radiated and like sparks fell on the ground. This lasted for a month and two days. (The star-P.S)Never moved from the spot, was visible sometimes in the evening, sometimes in the morning, and sometimes at night, but later would disappear.

Perhaps there are more observations about the mysterious spear-shaped UFOs scattered throughout ancient manuscripts.
*Sharakan is the name of a remarkable body of Armenian liturgical songs dating back as far as medieval times; the songs are remarkable not just for their antiquity, but for their exquisite, often heartrending melodies. Sharakan is sung for about two or three minutes, hence, the phenomenon lasted about fifteen minutes.
*Akhaltsikhe is a small city in southwestern Georgia. In 1628 the city became the center of Ahiska Province of the Ottoman Empire. Today, the city is populated by Georgians, Armenians, Jews, Muslims, and Russians.

Complex alien life could exist on 100 million planets
Complex alien life could exist on 100 million planets
(Credit: PHR @ UPR Arecibo, NASA, Richard Wheeler @Zephyris)
A new study asserts that the Milky Way is home to one hundred million planets that could support alien life. And not just simple microbial life, but complex alien life.
A scientific team comprised of Louis Irwin from the University of Texas at El Paso, Alberto Fairén from Cornell University, Abel Méndez from the Planetary Habitability Laboratory at the University of Puerto Rico at Arecibo, and Dirk Schulze-Makuch from Washington State University evaluated the expanding list of confirmed exoplanets (currently at 1,792), then evaluated the density, temperature, substrate, chemistry, distance from its parent star, and age of each planet. The team used this information to compute a Biological Complexity Index (BCI), rating these planets on a scale of 0 to 1.0 according to characteristics assumed to be important for supporting multicellular life.
Professor Schulze-Makuch explained on Air & Space Magazine‘s website:
The BCI calculation revealed that 1 to 2 percent of known exoplanets showed a BCI rating higher than Jupiter’s moon Europa, which has a subsurface global ocean that may be hospitable to life. Based on an estimate of 10 billion stars in the Milky Way, and assuming an average of one planet per star, this yields the figure of 100 million. Some scientists believe the number could be 10 times higher.
Schulze-Makuch is also careful to point out that the study does not claim that complex life definitively exists on one hundred million planets. It only points out that the necessary conditions to support that life could exist on that many planets.

The team’s research was published in the journal Challenges in a paper titled “Assessing the Possibility of Biological Complexity on Other Worlds, with an Estimate of the Occurrence of Complex Life in the Milky Way Galaxy.”

Football field sized UFO stops Alabama I-20 traffic
Football field sized UFO stops Alabama I-20 traffic
An Alabama witness eastbound along I-20 nearing the 205 exit reported stopping her vehicle to watch a silent, triangle-shaped UFO “as large as a football field” moving slowly at the tree top level that terrified her and appeared to cause missing time, according to May 29, 2014, testimony in Case 56669 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.
The incident began sometime between 2 and 3 a.m. on January 20, 2014, as the witness was on I-20 heading toward Georgia with an 18-wheeler about a mile or two behind her.

“About a mile to a mile and-a-half before I reached the 205 exit between Heflin and Ranburne, Alabama, I topped the hill and far in the distance on my right side I saw the most extreme, bright, white lights lighting up the entire side of the road and pasture,” the witness stated. “I was very confused as to what I was looking at.”
The witness first thought she was looking at a police search team possibly responding to a traffic accident.
“But then I realized that I didn’t see any emergency police or fire department colored lights and it was extremely quiet. I began to slow my speed as I approached closer and then I noticed the lights that were shinning straight through the tree line onto the interstate had not only risen to above the tree line, but had also turned from pointing toward the road to pointing toward the ground.”
The witness then completely stopped her vehicle along the interstate, but checked out the roadway for her safety.
“I looked in the rear-view mirror to see where the 18-wheeler truck was in relationship to my car because I wanted to make sure that I was wasn’t going to get hit and also I wanted to make sure that I wasn’t the only person who was seeing this. The 18-wheeler had also come to a stop about one mile behind me and had his cab door open and he also had not pulled off the interstate.”
The witness then turned her attention back to the lights and noticed that they were at the tree top level and the lights were pointing toward the ground.
“The next thing I knew it was completely dark. I then was very confused and began looking about the sky for anything that could have done this.”
The witness then realized that the lights were attached to a very large, triangle-shaped object.
“Still very confused and extremely scarred, I noticed a huge, huge, triangular-shaped object that had rounded edges where the point of a triangle would be. There was no sound at all and no lights on this object were seen now. This object remained about tree top tall as it passed over my car heading northwest.”
The silent object was very large.
“This object was as large as a football field if not larger. And was about 50 to 60 feet thick. I could clearly see the pattern on the bottom and the sides of this object.”
The witness was near this location traveling eastbound along Alabama’s I-20 nearing the 205 exit when she first saw the triangle-shaped object hovering at the tree top level on January 20, 2014. (Credit: Google Maps)
The witness became terrified of her position at this point and looked again for the 18-wheeler.
“I sat at a full stop in the middle of the interstate feeling completely terrified and violated and again looked behind me to check and see if there was any other traffic that the was going to hit me. The truck was nowhere to be seen and he was only about one mile behind me and was stopped with his door open only moments before. He couldn’t have made an exit off the interstate because the 205 exit in front of me was the only exit off the interstate for a few miles. This left me dazed and confused.”
The witness then realized she had experienced missing time.
“I realized that I had time missing from when I saw the object in the field about tree top tall with its lights on and when it was coming over my car without any lights on. When I finally pulled myself back together and began to drive slowly home I realized that the time was now 4:12 a.m.”
The witness described herself as a professional with no problems that would account for the incident.
“I am 47 years old and I am an RN with almost 30 years experience working as a nurse in the ER, ICU, and Dialysis.”
Alabama MUFON is investigating. Alabama has a current UFO Alert Rating of 5 with a low number of recent reports nationally. Alabama had 10 UFO reports in April 2014 – the 20th highest reporting state – while California had 80 reports – the highest reporting state in the nation. The above quotes were edited for clarity.
UFO mania: (VIDEO) Father William Gill About his Encounter With UFO ETs
UFO mania: (VIDEO) Father William Gill About his Encounter With UFO ETs
Father William Gill, an Anglican minister observed a UFO with a group of approximately 30 others in Papua New Guinea over the evenings of June 26-27, 1959. In the video below, Father Gill describes the object he and the others had seen, along with the way they attempted to interact with it:
I recently received this correspondence and image:
Hello from Mexico Lon:
A friend sent me this image…was taken on a mountain called Ajusco, south of Mexico City in 2007.
They spent a weekend camping….but they preferred to return because “something” was observing them one night.
He told me that they saw 2 eyes on the dark forest….but one of the eyes has a vertical movement and the other not. They had a flash light and got closer to the “eyes”, when they saw a big shadow but the flashlight cannot illuminate it. They decide to go back to camp, pack everything and return to the city.
So they took the photo to remember that night. Wasn’t until my friend saw the image on his computer that he realized that “something” was behind one of them. He told me that the guy in the yellow jacket heard the noise of branches breaking, that’s why his head was turned looking to other side.
I put a red circle on the photo B for you can see what I’m talking about.
I send you my best regards from Mexico and I hope you have any idea of what this is.
When I was in 5th grade, I was a pretty popular kid, well liked, and I liked it that way. Before class started, a fellow student brought in a book on witchcraft. He said that there was a page with an incantation and if you say it three times, the devil will appear. Nobody would read it because they were scared, and to be honest, so was I, but I wanted to stay popular so I said I would read it. The gist of it was (as far as I can recall) a prayer to the devil… saying that he was the one true god and that I give my soul to him, etc. On the third time through reading it, I physically felt something pass through my body. It was like my breath was taken away for a split second, I got those cold chills… you know the ones I’m talking about… and I felt faint. I stopped mid-sentence and the kids freaked out. They said they saw something happen to me. My hair blew like a fan was on but there wasn’t. They said that I was still for like two minutes not talking or responding to them. When it was over, I opened my eyes to see the kids in my class with wide eyes and their jaws open asking me if I was okay. I closed the book and told them what I felt, and they said they believed me because of how I was acting. I have never been one for believing in the supernatural, but when I feel myself starting to doubt, I remember back to that day when I was a stupid 5th grader who may have inadvertently sold my soul to the devil for a little popularity. I am Catholic and every time I go to confession, I ask for forgiveness from that, and I try to be a good man, hoping that when my time comes, I don’t find myself on the wrong side of the fence. I have thought that maybe it wasn’t the devil that passed through me, but rather an angel… protecting me and also scaring me straight by passing through me, in a way saying “uh-uh-uhhhh…. don’t do that…” But either way, the story is true, and I will always carry that question with me… did I sell my soul to the devil when I was in 5th grade? – Reddit.com
A passenger on a commercial flight over the English capital this week caught something unusual on camera.
Photographs of UFOs taken from aircraft tend to be some of the most convincing and this latest case is no exception. The images were captured on camera by a passenger flying over London just four days ago on the morning of May 25th.
The object appears to be flying above the cloudline and resembles a dark-colored disc or cigar-shaped craft with lights on either side. The series of photographs show it flying upwards and off in to the distance towards the right.
The sighting has been generating a great deal of interest since appearing online. Some viewers have suggested that it could be the top of a tall building peeking out through the clouds, however the subsequent shots of the craft moving upwards seem to discount this possibility.
After the disappearance of two goats, evidence of attacks on his cows and some mysterious late-night howls, James Newton believes he has found the culprit — the chupacabra, a creature many experts don’t believe exists.
Newton, who owns a farm with his wife, Vanessa, on Dixie Road, had been noticing unusual happenings since taking over the land more than a year ago, including the unexplained loss of two goats in December, and discovering his cows with bloody ears that he believes were evidence of a creature trying to bite the animals.
On Monday morning, Newton said his wife alerted him to what she described as “the ugliest animal you’d ever seen” behind their house.
The creature, which they believe may have been killed by the couple’s German shepherd, was 2-feet long, had short, dark gray hair, a long thin tail, protruding teeth and — according to Newton — an uncanny resemblance to a creature popularly known as a chupacabra.
“I looked it up on the Internet before I called anyone, and sure enough, if you look it up online, you’ll see this looks exactly like the chupacabras people have been spotting,” Newton said. “On the Internet, a man actually shot one on his porch.”
“Chupacabra” is a Spanish word that literally translates to “goat sucker.” Reports of the creature can be traced back to Puerto Rico in 1994, when eight sheep were reportedly attacked and drained of blood. Since 1994, a consensus has been formed on how the creature supposedly looks among those who have claimed to have caught the creature in the act.
The most common features used to describe the chupacabra are dark skin, little to no hair, a long, thin tail and protruding canines.
“What they do is they grab a hold of them and suck the blood out of them,” Newton said. “Every time they find ‘em, the bodies of animals they’ve attacked, they have the blood sucked out of them. This one man had 100 chickens and it just sucked the blood out of every one of his chickens … All it has to do is latch on to an animal and hold on. Now, a goat can be up to 200 pounds. If one of these things can take down a goat, then taking down a full-grown man wouldn’t be a problem. ”
While there have been a number of cases in which people have found an animal, dead or alive, that they believe to be a chupacabra, skeptics have been quick to dismiss these discoveries as dogs, coyotes or some other kind of animal suffering from mange.
In the case of Newton’s chupacabra, both Dr. Curt Locklear of Lumberton’s Southeastern Veterinary Hospital and Tommy Rains, wildlife damage control agent with Cape Fear Wildlife Control, seem to agree, from only viewing photographs, that the body is likely that of a raccoon.
“That is definitely a raccoon, but one that had been under a lot of stress,” Rains said. “Skin disease and malnourishment can make it look like that. It does look a lot like the pictures of a chupacabra though.”
Rains added that in his 16 years of working as a wildlife damage control agent, this was the first time he had been asked to identify a chupacabra. Both Locklear and Rains warn that a raccoon that sickly may have been infected with rabies and have suggested that Newton have his dog checked for the virus. More than a dozen cases of rabies were reported during an outbreak of the disease in Robeson County last year.
“I think that chupacabras may exist, I am not saying they don’t,” Rains said. “Just that I have skinned a lot of raccoons over the years and after you skin an animal, it becomes much easier to recognize the way their body and bones are shaped.”
Newton remains convinced.
“See, it has hair on its back, but no hair on the legs,” Newton said. “I thought it was a ‘coon, but a ‘coon ain’t that color. They have white around their eyes, and he’s got tan color up there.”
Newton and his wife said they will be keeping an eye out for any other chupacabras and keeping a close watch on their four dogs.
“I had never seen anything like that,” Vanessa Newton said. “It is scary to see something that looks like that, and the way I see it, if there is one, then there is another one.” – Your Daily Journal
At the Mihai Kogalniceanu military airport, north of Constanta, several supersonic fighter aircraft pilots of the Aviation Group 57 had witnessed an unidentified aerospace phenomenon. The event took place probably in the second half of March 1989 (there are differences in the timing remembered). Between the hours of 15.00 and 21.00, the unit, consisting then of 18-20 pilots, executed a shooting exercise in two sets: day flight and night flight. “At one point, it was announced that the training flights were halted, although weather conditions were excellent and the visibility was very good” said one witness. At around 21.20, the pilots were stripped of their equipment. Some of them, including the Commander and the Colonel Platon Streja, flight inspector in the Air Force Command in Bucharest, delegate to attend and participate in flights that week, were in the “alarm cell”, a room located in a building, planning the next flight, scheduled over two days. The other pilots were talking on a bench outside this building. The technicians were preparing the aircrafts for parking at night. The sky was “glass clear”, and the visibility perfect. Colonel (ret.) Aurelian Dobre remembers: I was talking with some fellow pilots before the ‘cell’. I was facing the take off terminal. At one point, I saw many lights, appearing actually above the trees. I immediately entered the ‘cell’ to warn those who were inside. When I went out, the lights were already on top of us.” Colonel (ret.) Paul Otelea, commander of the second group, then flying a MIG -23, says:”At one point our colleague Aurelian Dobre entered, calling us: Come out quickly!” We went all; we looked in the sky and saw a triangular sections train at an equal distance between them, bathed in white light silver matte, strong but without giving light around. [... ] They moved from south to north. I appreciate that they were at an angle of about 20-25 degrees and about 7,000 meters high. Along with the passing over him, he heard “a noise that resembled very well with the rustle of a flock of birds in flight over the forest at night. I knew it from childhood, when I was wandering the woods”. “From the first moment I saw them until they disappeared, several tens of seconds passed, then the lights faded out towards Ukraine”. He adds that it is a great mystery the lack of “sonic bang” shock wave. Colonel (ret.) Dan Aioanei, who at the time was flying a MIG-29, says: “From Medgidia, a formation of 7, 8 or 9 flowing objects were approaching. They looked like neon tubing, several kilometers long each, and were thus positioned relative to one another that form a “V”. From the distance, the tubes seem to have a diameter of 15-20 cm, so in reality they have 2-3 meters. Travel speed must have been at least supersonic. They were flying very high, at an altitude of over 3,000 m but may be well over 10,000 meters. Even for us, acquainted with the sky, was hard to estimate, because the reference points, i.e. clouds, were missing. As pilots, we know what shape, texture, dynamics have the clouds, depending on the altitude at which they are. The formation left no trace behind, no light, no trail. The “tubes” have disappeared from the horizon, somewhere east of Tulcea. In 1989, the Group 57 of Air Force, now disbanded, was among the highest rated in Europe in terms of professionalism of the pilots and endowment of the unit. The pilots who witnessed the event were both well qualified and trained to distinguish an airplane, helicopter, balloon, flock of birds, or satellite from whatever.
Exclusive: Found after 500 years, the wreck of Christopher Columbus’s flagship the Santa Maria
Shipwreck found off coast of Haiti thought to be one of the most significant underwater discoveries in history
More than five centuries after Christopher Columbus’s flagship, the Santa Maria, was wrecked in the Caribbean, archaeological investigators think they may have discovered the vessel’s long-lost remains – lying at the bottom of the sea off the north coast of Haiti. It’s likely to be one of the world’s most important underwater archaeological discoveries.
“All the geographical, underwater topography and archaeological evidence strongly suggests that this wreck is Columbus’ famous flagship, the Santa Maria,” said the leader of a recent reconnaissance expedition to the site, one of America’s top underwater archaeological investigators, Barry Clifford.
“The Haitian government has been extremely helpful – and we now need to continue working with them to carry out a detailed archaeological excavation of the wreck,” he said.
So far, Mr Clifford’s team has carried out purely non-invasive survey work at the site – measuring and photographing it.
Tentatively identifying the wreck as the Santa Maria has been made possible by quite separate discoveries made by other archaeologists in 2003 suggesting the probable location of Columbus’ fort relatively nearby. Armed with this new information about the location of the fort, Clifford was able to use data in Christopher Columbus’ diary to work out where the wreck should be.
An expedition, mounted by his team a decade ago, had already found and photographed the wreck – but had not, at that stage, realized its probable identity.
It’s a current re-examination of underwater photographs from that initial survey (carried out back in 2003), combined with data from recent reconnaissance dives on the site (carried out by Clifford’s team earlier this month), that have allowed Clifford to tentatively identify the wreck as that of the Santa Maria.
The evidence so far is substantial. It is the right location in terms of how Christopher Columbus, writing in his diary, described the wreck in relation to his fort.
The site is also an exact match in terms of historical knowledge about the underwater topography associated with the loss of the Santa Maria. The local currents are also consistent with what is known historically about the way the vessel drifted immediately prior to its demise.
The footprint of the wreck, represented by the pile of ship’s ballast, is also exactly what one would expect from a vessel the size of the Santa Maria
Using marine magnetometers, side-scan sonar equipment and divers, Mr. Clifford’s team has, over several years, investigated more than 400 seabed anomalies off the north coast of Haiti and has narrowed the search for the Santa Maria down to the tiny area where the wreck, which the team thinks may well be Columbus’ lost vessel, has been found.
The underwater remains of s flagship (Brandon Clifford)
A re-examination of the photographic evidence taken during the 2003 initial survey of the site by Mr. Clifford and his son Brandon has also provided evidence which is consistent with the vessel being from Columbus’ era - including a probable early cannon of exactly the type known to have been on-board the Santa Maria.
When Clifford and his team returned to the site earlier this month, their intention was to definitively identify the cannon and other surface artefacts that had been photographed back in 2003. But tragically all the key visible diagnostic objects including the cannon had been looted by illicit raiders.
“We’ve informed the Haitian government of our discovery – and we are looking forward to working with them and other Haitian colleagues to ensure that the site is fully protected and preserved. It will be a wonderful opportunity to work with the Haitian authorities to preserve the evidence and artefacts of the ship that changed the world,” said Mr. Clifford.
“I am confident that a full excavation of the wreck will yield the first ever detailed marine archaeological evidence of Columbus’ discovery of America.”
Christopher Columbus (Alamy)
“Ideally, if excavations go well and depending on the state of preservation of any buried timber, it may ultimately be possible to lift any surviving remains of the vessel, fully conserve them and then put them on permanent public exhibition in a museum in Haiti.
“I believe that, treated in this way, the wreck has the potential to play a major role in helping to further develop Haiti’s tourism industry in the future,” he said.
Mr Clifford, who discussed the wreck site with the President of Haiti, Michel Martelly last year, is one of the world’s most experienced explorers of underwater archaeological sites. He has carried out survey work on dozens of historic wrecks in different parts of the world over the past four decades – and was the discoverer and excavator of the world’s first fully verified pirate shipwreck, the Whydah, back in 1984, and more recently discovered Captain Kidd’s flagship off Madagascar.
The Santa Maria was built at some stage in the second half of the 15 century in northern Spain’s Basque Country. In 1492, Columbus hired the ship and sailed in it from southern Spain’s Atlantic coast via the Canary Islands in search of a new western route to Asia.
After 37 days, Columbus reached the Bahamas – but, just over ten weeks later, his flagship, the Santa Maria, with Columbus on board, drifted at night onto a reef off the northern coast of Haiti and had to be abandoned. Then, in a native village nearby, Columbus began building his first fort – and, a week later, leaving many of his men behind in the fort, he used his two remaining vessels to sail back to Spain in order to report his discovery of what he perceived as a new westerly route to Asia to his royal patrons - King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella of Spain.
A leading American maritime archaeologist, Professor Charles Beeker of Indiana University, who accompanied Mr Clifford’s recent reconnaissance expedition to Haiti and who also carried out an underwater visual assessment of the site, says that it “warrants a detailed scientific investigation to obtain diagnostic artefacts”.
“There is some very compelling evidence from the 2003 photographs of the site and from the recent reconnaissance dives that this wreck may well be the Santa Maria,”
“But an excavation will be necessary in order to find more evidence and confirm that,” said Professor Beeker who is Director of the University of Indiana’s Office of Underwater Science.
The investigation into the wreck is being supported by the American TV network, the History channel, which has secured the exclusive rights toproduce a major television programme on the subject.
"Inside the Skunk Works, we were a small, intensively cohesive group consisting of about fifty veteran engineers and designers, and a hundred or so expert machinists and shop workers. Our forte was building technologically advanced airplanes of small number and of high class for highly secret missions."
"We already have the means to travel among the stars, but these technologies are locked up in black projects, and it would take an act of God to ever get them out to benefit humanity. Anything you can imagine, we already know how to do it."
"We now have technology to take ET home. No it won't take someone's lifetime to do it. There is an error in the equations. We know what it is. We now have the capability to travel to the stars. First, you have to understand that we will not get to the stars using chemical propulsion. Second, we have to devise a new propulsion technology. What we have to do is find out where Einstein wentwrong."
"When Rich was asked how UFO propulsion worked, he said, 'Let me ask you. How does ESP work?' The questioner responded with 'All points in time and space are connected?' Rich then said, 'That's how it works!' "
According to xenophilius.wordpress.com, the legendary Lockheed engineer and close friend of Ben Rich, the late John Andrews, confirmed a conversation with Rich in which the Skunk Works director said:
Another Skunk Works engineer, Don Phillips, has publicly said UFOs are real and that he and other Skunk Works members were doing "back-engineering" on recovered crashed UFO materials and devices to develop cutting-edge aeronautical technology. According to xenophilius.wordpress.com, Phillips said: "When I was working at the Skunk Works with Kelly Johnson, we signed an agreement with the government to keep very quiet about this. Anti-gravitational research was going on. We know that there were some captured craft from 1947 in Roswell, they were real. And yes, we really did put them to work. We knew each other from what we call an unseen industry. We can term it black, deep black, or hidden.
"The knowledge I have of these technologies came from here. I didn't see the craft, nor did I see the bodies but I certainly know some of the people that did. There was no question that there were beings from outside the planet." (To view Phillips' statement online, Google: Alien Technology and Don Phillips).
If the testimony of the Skunk Works engineers is valid, humankind faces the greatest discovery in history — the existence of non-human, intelligent, off-planet Earth life forms with stellar propulsion capabilities. Thus, this meeting of cosmic cultures will inevitably affect every segment of civilization, including religion, politics, science, technology, education and agriculture — in short, the complete spectrum of human life will be challenged by the confirmation of a greater reality.
Surely these accounts of UFO/alien technology — and what they portend for the future — by highly respected engineers Phillips, Andrews and Rich are deserving of further professional investigative reporting. Perhaps a University of Missouri journalism alum or a current MU J-School student will accept the challenge. Who knows? There might be a Pulitzer Prize in the offing.

Stanford Physicist: We Have Physical Evidence Of UFOs!
Peter Sturrock is an emeritus professor of applied physics at Stanford University and one of the very few scientists who has publicly expressed a great deal of interest in UFOs and acted on that interest by twice surveying colleagues on the subject which resulted in some very surprising findings. He is also unambiguous on one particular category of UFO evidence which he happens to know a little bit about . . . . radar reports.
"Yes - radar is physical evidence," Sturrock stated in an email exchange he was generous enough to grant me.
Professor Sturrock's involvement with radar dates back to World War II. While studying mathematics at Cambridge University, he interrupted his studies to help in the war effort and joined the Telecommunications Research Establishment in 1942, now known as the Royal Radar Establishment, where he helped develop radar systems.
Skeptics commenting on the UFO phenomenon often claim that a major problem with UFOs is the only evidence are witness sightings, claim they are unreliable and cite a lack of physical evidence. While that is often the case, there are notable exceptions where physical evidence does exist in the form of radar reports and they corroborate the accounts of multiple credible witnesses. There have been a number of famous UFO cases that have involved radar reports and two of the most famous contemporary incidents are the JAL Alaska case from 1986 and the Stephenville, Texas sightings of 2008.
On November 17, 1986, a Japan Air Lines 747 cargo jet, piloted by Captain Kenju Terauchi, was flying westward near Mt. McKinley when he spotted a UFO. "Then there was a kind of reverse thrust, and the lights became dazzlingly bright. Our cockpit lit up. The thing was flying as if there was no such thing as gravity. It sped up, then stopped, then flew at our speed, in our direction, so that to us it looked like it was standing still. The next instant it changed course. There's no way a jumbo could fly like that. If we tried, it'd break apart in mid-air. In other words, the flying object had overcome gravity," Terauchi said.
Terauchi and his crew had the sighting but John Callahan, the FAA Division Chief of the Accidents and Investigations branch, had the data. The radar report covered more than a half hour. Callahan states in the following video interview, "As far as I'm concerned, I saw a UFO chase a Japanese 747 across the sky for over half an hour on radar."
He goes on to say that members of President Reagan’s Scientific Study Team, the FBI and the CIA he met with about the incident expressed excitement at the data.
The Stephenville, Texas case of January 2008 featured dozens of residents of the Texas town and its' surroundings sighting UFOs. Some reported aircraft the size of a football field and larger. Freedom Of Information Act requests were quickly sent to the FAA, National Weather Service and local Air Force bases by radar expert Glen Schulze and Robert Powell, MUFON Director of Research seeking radar data for January 8.
In their summary, Schulze and Powell wrote, "The enormous size of the object, its' complete silence and its' ability to travel at high rates of speed and to also remain stationary or travel at slow speeds is not explained by any known aircraft. Based on approximate distance of the object and witness descriptions of degrees of sky covered by the object indicated an object closer to 1000 feet in size. Twice, radar picked up an unknown object flying at 1900-2100 mph."
I also asked Professor Sturrock if he had a favorite UFO case and he replied, "The Coyne helicopter case." On October 18, 1973, the four-man crew of an Army Reserve helicopter heading towards Cleveland from Columbus had an otherworldly encounter with a UFO at about 10:30 PM as they were flying near Mansfield, Ohio.
Below is a segment about the case from the 1990s TV show Sightings.
Finally, I asked the professor about his own research into UFOs. In 1973, Professor Sturrock distibuted two questionaires, one to members of the San Francisco chapter of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, the other to members of the American Astronomical Society.
The AIAA survey results indicated that "a sample of scientifically trained persons reports aerial phenomena similar to so-called "UFO reports," and the AAS survey revealed that "a small fraction (of order 5%) are likely to report varied and puzzling observations, not unlike so-called "UFO reports" made by the general public," according to the professor.
He also noted that, "if you want to find out whether scientists see UFOs you must ask them, and you probably must guarantee them anonymity. Scientists have no doubt been discouraged from taking the problem seriously by the bizarre nature of some of the reports and emphasis upon the "extraterrestrial hypothesis" (ETH)."
Professor Sturrock's full papers on his finding are available here and here.
Specifically, I asked Professor Sturrock about his opinion on expanding future queries to include social scientists like historians, sociologists and psychologists, professionals who I thought might also have some interest in and be able to contribute to the UFO field.
"I would encourage similar surveys of other professions. Then the results could be compared," he replied.
Finally, I'd like to thank Professor Sturrock for taking the time to answer my questions and I would also like to thank my good friend, fellow UFO researcher and the pride of Surrey in the UK Peter Mandeville for providing the tip that led to this article.
In 2012 stuitte een team onderzoekers in de jungle van Ecuador op een oud bouwwerk. Volgens schrijver en onderzoeker Bruce Fenton is het complex mogelijk de ‘Verloren Stad der Reuzen’, omdat rond het bouwwerk enorme stukken gereedschap zijn gevonden. Daarnaast spreken lokale legendes over een reuzenras dat ooit in het gebied leefde.
Op de vindplaats is een buitengewoon groot piramidevormig bouwwerk ontdekt dat circa 80 meter lang, 80 meter breed en 80 meter hoog is. Het bouwwerk bestaat uit honderden steenblokken, die elk zo’n twee ton wegen. Bovenop de heuvel kunnen vele voorwerpen worden gevonden. Veel van de stenen sluiten precies op elkaar aan, hebben scherpe randen en lijken door mensenhanden te zijn uitgehouwen.
Uit de omvang van het gevonden gereedschap maakt Fenton op dat het mogelijk één van de verloren steden der reuzen is, waar in lokale legendes veel over wordt gesproken. Bij leden van inheemse stammen boezemen dergelijke plaatsen veel angst in omdat ze naar verluidt worden beschermd door geesten of wezens die niet tot deze wereld behoren.
Volgens verschillende legendes werden de steden bewoond door reuzen, die door de tijd heen in de vergetelheid zijn geraakt. In grotten in het gebied – maar ook in andere delen van Ecuador – zijn botten van reuzen gevonden.
De overheid van Ecuador werd op de hoogte gebracht van de vondst. In 2013 organiseerde het ministerie van Cultuur een expeditie. Het overheidsteam concludeerde dat de heuvel een natuurlijke formatie is. Als gevolg hiervan worden er geen opgravingen gepland in het gebied en wordt de vindplaats ook niet aangemerkt als erfgoed.
Fenton en zijn collega’s zijn het niet eens met de conclusies en wijzen op de rechthoekige blokken, het bindmateriaal tussen de stenen, de precisie waarmee ze zijn uitgehouwen en de ontdekking van stenen gereedschap. Bovendien zijn er grote stenen gevonden met ronde gaten in het midden.
“Er is geen twijfel over mogelijk dat we hier te maken hebben met sporen van menselijke bewoning,” schreef Fenton op zijn website Earth4all. “We willen nu monsters gaan testen, dateren en laten onderzoeken door deskundigen.” Hij hoopt in een nabijgelegen dorp een museum te openen waar de voorwerpen veilig kunnen worden bewaard. Bekijk hier een video van de vindplaats.
UFO mania: Ancient Alien Cauldrons in Siberia are Real!
UFO mania: Ancient Alien Cauldrons in Siberia are Real
A team of scientists and researchers have just returned from an expedition in Siberia and the Valley of the Dead and are claiming they have found proof of at least five of the legendary cauldrons that ancient aliens supposedly built.
A team of Russian scientists and researchers have just returned from the “Valley of Death” region in Siberia with startling claims. Lead scientist Michale Visok had this to say in an interview with a Russian newspaper on what they had found:
“We went out into the Valley of Death to really see and investigate the metal cauldrons that people claim exist there and we actually found five metallic objects buried in marsh like swamps”
Michale gave the following details about these metal objects:
They are each submerged in small pools of swamp like water that is anywhere from 2-3 feet deep. They are definitely metallic. The scientists entered each swamp and walked on top of the objects and heard metallic sounds when striking the objects.
The tops of the objects are very smooth to the touch but there are sharp points along the outer edges.
2 of the team members got ill during the investigation.
The team consisted of 3 geologists, 1 astrophysicist, 1 mechanical engineer and 3 research assistants.
Asked what does the team think they have discovered? Could it be something built by ancient aliens like so many people believe? Michale declined to comment other than “there is definitely something weird out there, we have no idea what they are or what they were used for”.

UFO-MANIA : IS TIME TRAVEL POSSIBLE?
UFO-MANIA - IS TIME TRAVEL POSSIBLE?
Pew Research’s recent public opinion pollon technology and the future has been on my mind this week. We’ve already discussed the possibility ofweather controlandteleportation, but what about time travel? Only 9% of Americans polled say they want time travel technology (or, at least, that they’d prioritize it over other futuristic contraptions), which I’m initially inclined to blame on thefact that most of us didn’t grow up watching Doctor Whoand don’t know how cool time travel technology can be.
As was the case with most of the other technologies discussed in the Pew study, time travel refers to something we’re already doing (albeit on an insignificant scale). Due to the effects of time dilation, astronauts and satellites already travel forward in time by tiny fractions of a second. Greenwich Royal Observatory’s Colin Stuart explains how here:
But even if we perfect and amplify this technology, it only allows time travel to the future, and where’s the fun in that? There’s little point in traveling to the future if you can’t come back to the present when you’re done. But traveling backward through time involves a lot more energy and, in Michio Kaku’s words, “punching a hole in the universe”:
A good number of scientists and inventors are trying, in various ways, to figure outhow we can travel through time—but none, as far as we know, have been successful.. Our inability to conquer time travel defines our existence as mortal beings who can only move within brief, finite periods of time—in one direction, and at or near one speed. If we ever could travel in time to change the past, it would be to the human experience what printing our own fake money would be to a game of Monopoly. It would be a game-changer—so much of one that our odds of using the technology responsibly, or even competently, would be slim. Stephen Hawking once remarked that one of the best arguments against future use of time travel is the lack of evidence for time travelers among us. It does, at least, suggest that if future generations have visited us, they had the good sense to keep it to themselves.

Cosmonaut Marina Popovich Discloses What Russia Knows About UFO’s
Cosmonaut Marina Popovich Discloses What Russia Knows About UFO’s
Colonel Marina Popovich
After the changes that occurred in Russia all kinds of things went on sale. The KGB files were sold in their entirety to Yale University, and two U.S. film companies bought the rights to the KGB UFO files. Soviet scientists and cosmonauts also came forward with what they knew. One of the most famous is Colonel Marina Popovich.
In 1990 Colonel Marina Popovich hero of the Soviet Union, who holds 102 world records held a press conference in San Francisco at the Russian Consulate. During the conference she showed amazing photographs of cigar-shaped alien craft in space that were each, fifteen miles long. The photos were taken by a Russian space, probe which mysteriously stopped working, then disappeared completely, shortly after taking the photographs.
Col. Popovich has flown every kind of aircraft there is in the Soviet Union, from large transport planes to MIG-21s. She holds ninety flight records. She’s even been called the Chuck Yeager of the Soviet Union. Popovich has a Ph.D. in technical sciences and her focus now is to get the truth about the existence of flying saucers out to the public.
Here are some of the things she has to say about flying saucers:
Soviet satellites have taken photographs of flying saucers.
Soviet scientists have concluded that flying saucers have been around for as long as our planet.
Popovich has seen photographs of alien / human hybrid children.
Colonel Marina Popovich
Ms. Popovich, who maintained she was not punished nor censored by the Russian military or authorities when she reported her UFO experiences to them and then went public, stated she intends to visit the United States and help convince the US government and Congress along with her fellow U.S. astronauts. U.S. astronauts, the U.S. government, and the U.S. Congress have maintained a 60+ year official embargo on UFOs and extraterrestrials. U.S. Astronauts have been officially reticent to disclose and speak out about their personal experiences with UFOs and Extraterrestrials, and the repressive measures the U.S. government has used to ensure their silence.
She discloses her personal experiences with UFOs and her knowledge of the extraterrestrial presence in an exclusive May 23, 2014 ExopoliticsTV interview with Alfred Lambremont Webre.

REAL ENCOUNTERS, DIFFERENT DIMENSIONS, AND OTHERWORLDLY BEINGS - BOOK REVIEWby Ron Williams.
One of my favorite memories from elementary school was the Scholastic Books flyer. These seemed to come around randomly, almost magically. This was before gigantic booksellers and the internet, and if you were a kid who read, this was the shit you waited for. Four to eight pages of books suitable for kids 12 and younger, all reasonably priced with free shipping to your school. Fiction, non-fiction, puzzles and reference books. You name it, they seemed to have it. I specifically remember a 96-page book on sharks that I used as a reference to write reports (on sharks) well into college. More..
CANADIAN TV NETWORK INVESTIGATES VANCOUVER UFOSby Jon Kelly.
A new video published on May 21, 2014, offers a preview of a special report from CTV News claiming there are more UFO sightings in Vancouver, British Columbia, than anywhere else around Canada. In what is described as an “out of this world story” the preview highlights on-camera interviews featuring both Canadian science writer Chris Rutkowski and Vancouver astronomer Charles Lamoureux. CTV’s coverage follows this month’s publication of results from a 2013 Canadian UFO Survey which ranked Vancouver the number one city in Canada with 116 UFO reports filed in 2012. More..
CALL ME “ANOTHER URI GELLER”by Timothy Green Beckley.
Most of you know how I attract weird synchronicities and coincidences in my life. On Memorial Day my I decided to take a break and go over to Hudson River Park where I had never been before, but I heard was so lovely being on the water and all,and me being a Cancer should be extra special (and it was!). My friend and associate Carol said we could quickly get to the park by taking the 23rd Street cross town bus and if we showed them our senior citizen ID we would only have to pay half the far of $1.25.

ANIMAL MUTILATION IS A SUBJECT WE NEED TO DISCUSSby Chris Holly.
Animal mutilation has been taking place on this planet for hundreds if not thousands of years. Reports of animals found with organs removed, bloodless by methods mankind could not replicate were collected by author Charles Fort going back to the 1800; s. During my research I read claims that reference to the strange findings of bloodless, organ less animals that date back much further than that. This lets us know that we have been collecting data on this subject for at least a few hundred years. More..
DID ALIENS POSSIBLY CREATE ANCIENT ROCK ART? NASA BOOK ASKS!by Carolyn Shield.
A buzz through the internet has caused a 2012 NASA book to be pulled off the shelves. A fascinating article by Professor Edmundson explores ideas on ancient Rock art and explains its potential use in communicating with possible extraterrestrial races in the future if found. I think it’s a brilliant suggestion and a project that needs to be worked on. It’s one thing to call ET but another to communicate with him. More..
CATTLE MUTILATIONS ASSOCIATED WITH A UFO SIGHTING IN ARGENTINA by Scott Corrales.
An investigation by Martin Bertochi and Vicky Ziegler - this case contains nearly-ideal conditions for investigation, but for the inability to gain access to the expert report performed on site.

That advantage could be for a good purpose or a bad purpose, from our human point of view. More...
THE FLYING SAUCER WHISPERER - 1965by Cheryl Costa.
One incident changed forever the way I looked at things. It was a seasonal evening in June 1965, when a couple of school teachers witnessed the Flying Saucer Whisperer. Samuel explained to me that back in the mid 1960’s he taught school in the Corning – Painted Post school district. School had just let out for the summer; Sam and his wife were enjoying some lemonade on their Victorian front porch on the quiet street where they lived on Corning’s Northside. Their eighth grade daughter and some of the neighborhood kids were playing whiffle ball out in the street before sun set. As it got too dark to play ball any more, the kids began gathering on the front steps of the porch. Sometimes Sam or his wife would read stories to the kids. More...
'HITLER’S DOUBLES AT A GLANCE'by Peter Fotis Kapnistos.
The Berlin Chancellery:* Hitler’s head office was the Berlin executive mansion that also served as the Fuhrer’s official residence. The first known Chancellery doppelganger was the SS founder *Julius Shcreck*, who also served as the Fuhrer’s chauffeur. Schreck’s death was reported on May 16, 1936. However, diverse details of his death speciously disagreed. At the fall of Berlin, a Hitler double corpse was discovered in the Berlin ruins. The double was a Chancellery “cook” according to a witness. (In 1936, Max Schreck, a German actor known for his role in the 1922 vampire movie “Nosferatu,” died in a Munich hospital of a heart attack.) Who was buried in 1936 at Munich’s Grafelfing cemetery?

There are mysteries that are so eerie and strange that they boggle the mind for days on end. The case of Elisa Lam is one of them. In February 2013, this 21-year-old student from Vancouver, Canada, was found dead inside the Cecil Hotel’s rooftop water tank in Los Angeles. The L.A. County Department of Coroner ruled the death “accidental due to drowning” and said no traces of drugs or alcohol were found during the autopsy. However, there is much more to the story than what is implied by police reports. The first piece of evidence that needs to be considered is an elevator surveillance tape that recorded Elisa’s behavior only a few moments before she lost her life.
The four-minute video posted on YouTube shows Elisa pressing all of the elevator buttons and waiting for it to move. Seeing that the elevator doors are not closing, starts behaving extremely bizarrely. Here’s the video.
At first, Elisa enters the elevator and apparently presses all of its buttons. She then waits for something to happen but, for some reason, the elevator door doesn’t shut. She starts to look around, as if she is expecting (or hiding from) someone. At 1:57, her arms and hands start moving in a very strange matter (almost not human) as she appears to be talking to someone, something … or nothing at all. She then walks away. The elevator door then shuts and appears to start working again.
Right after the events of the video, Elisa apparently gained access to the rooftop of the hotel, climbed to its water tank and, somehow, ended up drowning in it. Her body was found two weeks after her death, after hotel guests complained about the water’s taste and color. Incredible.
Seeing the surveillance footage, most people would conclude that she was under the influence of drugs. However, Elisa did not have a history of drug use and her autopsy concluded that no drugs were involved. When one looks at the context and the circumstances of this death, things become even more mysterious.
UFO mania: Legends of Mysterious Slant-Eyed Giants
UFO mania: Legends of Mysterious Slant-Eyed Giants
Traveling west out of Asheville, North Carolina and crossing the border into Jackson County, one can trace the Caney Fork River along toward the little Tuckasegee community, following NC Highway 107 heading out of the nearby campus town of Cullowhee. There, off a gravel road running between two pastures, is one of the most underrated–and often overlooked–wonders anywhere in the Eastern United States.
Known today as “Judaculla Rock”, the strange stone mound protrudes from the earth just as it did centuries ago, much earlier even than the Cherokee Indians had begun to inhabit the region. According to most estimates by geologists, the stone’s markings date back as much as 3000 years, though on Raliegh-based group a number of years ago supposed that some of the petroglyphs covering the boulder could be twice as old as previous estimates, if not more.
Of all the curious symbols that appear along the stone’s surface, one particular image stands out among the rest, resembling vaguely a hand-like imprint. According to legend, this portion of the stone marks the place where an ancient Cherokee god of the hunt, known as “Tsul’Kalu’,” had leaped from a nearby mountain, and landing within the valley below, had steadied himself against what is now Judaculla Rock. This is, in fact, merely one of several legends regarding Tsul’Kalu’ that still exist, many of which have some fairly remarkable tie-ins with mysterious discoveries of “giants” alleged to have existed in the ancient Americas.
Brian Williams nabbed an exclusive interview with Edward Snowden for NBC News. Snowden is still wanted for leaking classified NSA data in June 2013, and is currently living in exile in Russia. Williams traveled to Moscow for the interview. In advance of this highly-anticipated interview, NBC News has released a clip in which Snowden details his professional background. He has been alternately labeled everything from a “hacker” to a “low level analyst” in the media, but according to Snowden, the truth is a bit more complicated. He explained to Williams that he was “trained as a spy in sort of the traditional sense of the word.” He went on to explain that he lived and worked undercover under a false name in foreign countries.
In response to the “low level analyst” claims, Snowden said the government is “trying to use one position that I’ve had in a career here or there to distract from the totality of my experience.” He then detailed his background, saying that he’d worked for the NSA and the CIA overseas, and worked for the DIA as a lecturer at the Joint Counterintelligence Training Academy. Snowden did indicate that he worked primarily with computer systems, and not with people, but he said it was “somewhat misleading” to classify him as a “low level analyst.”
Illustrator Hal D. Crawford drew this image for the 1970 book “The Aliens” by Crawford, Hayden Hewes and Kietha Hewes. It depicts a creature associated with 1950s UFO landings. Momo eyewitnesses in Louisiana, Mo., claimed the illustration looked almost exactly like the creature they saw during the summer of 1972.
By Raymond Castile stateofhorror.comWitnesses claim to have seen a huge, hairy, hulking creature stalking the woods and lonely country roads. The creature is similar to the well-known Bigfoot of the Pacific Northwest, only more otherworldly. It has glowing orange eyes, a pumpkin-shaped head, three-fingered hands and leaves three-toed footprints. Unlike the shy Bigfoot, this aggressive creature is known to kill animals and antagonize humans.
Its name is Momo – the Missouri Monster. Momo sightings have been reported throughout Missouri, even in St. Charles County. But the most famous sightings occurred in Louisiana, Mo., a town of fewer than 4,000 people. Located in Pike County, Louisiana lies 75 miles northwest of St. Charles County. Bigfoot-like creatures have been reported in the Louisiana area since the 1940s, but it was not until the early 1970s that Momo attracted serious interest. Bigfoot researcher Loren Coleman describes the now-legendary Momo scare in his book, “Bigfoot! The True Story of Apes in America.” According to Coleman, the Momo saga began in July, 1971. Joan Mills and Mary Ryan were driving along Highway 79, north of Louisiana, when they allegedly saw a hairy creature that made disturbing gurgling noises. The women described the thing as “half ape and half man.” The most notorious sighting took place one year later. On the afternoon of July 11, 1972, 8-year-old Terry Harrison and his 5-year-old brother, Wally, were playing in their backyard at the foot of Marzolf Hill on the outskirts of Louisiana. Their older sister, Doris, was inside the house. Doris heard her brothers scream. She looked out the bathroom window and saw a black, hairy manlike creature, standing by a tree. The thing appeared to be six or seven feet tall. Its head sat directly atop its shoulders, with no visible neck. The face was likewise invisible, completely covered by a mass of hair. The youths reported a chilling detail – the creature, streaked with blood, carried a dead dog under its arm.

A local farmer reported his dog had disappeared. A neighbor reported hearing terrible growling sounds that afternoon. Edgar Harrison, the children’s father, also heard loud growls the evening of July 14. He and several other people smelled a strong, unpleasant odor as they investigated the area around Marzolf Hill. Investigators later reported smelling a similar stench, like rotting flesh. On July 21 Momo revealed itself to Ellis Minor outside his home on River Road. It was around 10 p.m. when Minor heard his dogs barking. He grabbed a flashlight and stepped outside, expecting to see an intruding dog. Instead, he saw a 6-foot-tall monster standing in his yard. The black, hairy creature turned and ran. According to a July 23, 1972 story in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, police sealed off a 200-acre wooded area while a team of 25 hunters searched for the creature, which many believed to be a black bear. Police received reports of a creature crossing the highway with a dog or sheep in its mouth. Another witness told police that the creature lifted the back of his automobile. Not all hunters used guns. Many used pencil and paper. Bigfoot investigators swarmed Louisiana, interviewing witnesses and taking plaster casts of the creature’s unusual three-toed footprints. One of the preeminent researchers was Hayden Hewes, director of the Oklahoma City-based Sasquatch Investigations of Mid America. “What impressed me was the willingness of people to talk to us. Normally people are reluctant to talk about these things,” said Hewes, 61. “This was not just one person spitting in a can, saying `yes sir, I saw it right over there.’ These were good quality people who were enthusiastic about what was going on.” Hewes said he was impressed with the witnesses’ sincerity. “These people didn’t want to sell something. They didn’t want publicity. They just wanted to share their stories. I never got any inkling that there was a hoax.”

The Momo scare lasted only two weeks, but it triggered a media frenzy. Television and newspaper journalists from across the nation descended on the small town. “I did close to 75 television and newspaper interviews,” Hewes said. “They flew me to Chicago to do some television there. There were people around us shooting documentaries. We haven’t had a case that well-documented since.” Sasquatch Investigations of Mid America is an offshoot of the International UFO Bureau, an organization Hewes founded in 1957. “We researched Bigfoot sightings in eight states, mainly to see if there was any connection with UFO sightings,” he said. “With Momo, we found there was no correlation whatsoever with UFOs.” Hewes said his investigations suggest there are families of nocturnal Bigfoot creatures that continuously migrate across the nation from the Pacific Northwest to the southeast. “The path begins around Oregon and Washington state,” he said. “It crosses Oklahoma around the first week of September, then finishes in Florida.” When he is not conducting paranormal investigations, Hewes runs a talent agency and works in warehouse distribution in Oklahoma City. Hewes has a degree in aeronautical and space engineering from the University of Oklahoma. While Hewes and other researchers concentrated on Louisiana, one team of investigators focused on sightings in the St. Charles County vicinity.

John Schuessler was living in O’Fallon during the Momo scare. Schuessler worked for McDonnell Douglas as a group engineer for life support systems on the Sky Lab space station, then later as director of flight operations for the Johnson Space Center in Houston. In 1969, Schuessler helped establish the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON), an international collective of UFO researchers. The 71-year-old Schuessler still directs the organization from its headquarters in Colorado. The Momo scare coincided with a rash of UFO sightings, including reports near his home in O’Fallon. The possible UFO connection intrigued Schuessler, so he joined the Momo investigation. Schuessler found no connection between Momo and UFO activity, but he did investigate two incidents that corroborated the presence of Bigfoot creatures in the region. On June 30, 1972, a month before the Harrison sighting in Louisiana, two young men from Troy were fishing on a secluded bank of the Cuivre River near Cuivre River State Park in Lincoln County. The fishermen, named Vaughn and Tim, stood atop a high bank overlooking an unusually low bank on the river’s opposite side. According to Schuessler, Vaughn noticed a splash and looked up. “They said they saw something wading across the river – a big, hairy thing. They didn’t know what it was,” Schuessler said. “Vaughn said, `Hey Tim, look at that silly hippie wading across the river.’ Then they realized it was not a hippie.” The men described the creature as standing taller than a normal man and hairy all over, Schuessler said. Like the Louisiana creature, the Troy monster’s hair completely covered its face. Its head looked like a dome resting on its shoulders. Tim scrambled up a hillside while Vaughn held his ground. The creature continued its deliberate march toward him. Vaughn finally panicked and ran. The men found a conservation officer and returned to the scene. “All they found were fresh, three-toed footprints where the creature came out of the water,” Schuessler said. Schuessler inspected the area the next day and found the prints. “They were large prints, but I couldn’t tell what made them,” he said. “We looked for hair, but found nothing but tracks.” Schuessler said Vaughn and Tim seemed honest and genuinely frightened. Schuessler also interviewed the conservation officer. “He said he’d gotten a lot of weird reports out of the park, but he didn’t pay attention to them. I think he wanted to stay at arm’s length from it all,” he said.

Another Momo sighting took place July 24 near O’Fallon, just after the final Louisiana sighting. Two teenage girls reported seeing a hairy creature at sunset walking along the edge of a wooded area. The O’Fallon incident is mentioned in “The Bigfoot Casebook” by Janet and Colin Bord, but Schuessler does not remember the details. “It was not as vivid as the Troy sighting,” he said. Momo must have enjoyed his sojourn in St. Charles County, because the creature apparently passed through town again four years later. The “Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization” Web site lists Momo sightings in 29 Missouri counties, including a 1976 report from St. Charles County. According to the report, two people were in a boat on the Missouri River near Highway 40-61 when they saw what appeared to be a 6-to-7-foot tall creature covered in dark brown hair. The creature was drinking from the river when it saw the boat, stood up and ran into the trees. Another local story is posted on the “Bigfoot Encounters” Web site. Mark Richardson, of Modesto, Calif., claims to have seen the creature in 1979 when he was living in St. Peters. According to Richardson, he and a friend were on a railroad bridge over Dardenne Creek one night. Richardson saw shadows moving and assumed it was his friend. To his shock, he discovered it was an 8-to-9-foot-tall creature with long, matted brown hair covering its body and face. Its shoulders were five feet wide. Its three-fingered hands hung below its knees. The creature smelled like rotting hair and screamed like a panther. Richardson claims it lifted the railroad timbers and tried to grab his friend. The two escaped and ran home. Richardson claims he knows other people who saw the St. Peters creature. He could not be reached for comment. So is Momo real? Investigators like Schuessler say the sincere testimony of eyewitnesses cannot be dismissed. “There is definitely something going on,” Schuessler said. “I just don’t know what it is.”
Van crashende computers tot falende satellieten: er is plek in de ruimte, een paar honderden kilometers boven de Braziliaanse kustlijn, die astronauten hoofdbrekens bezorgt. Wetenschappers proberen nu die 'Bermudadriehoek van de ruimte' in kaart te brengen.
Mocht u niet genoeg hebben met de mysterieuze Bermudadriehoek op aarde - een mythe die enkele maanden geleden overigens volledig onderuit gehaald werd door het Amerikaanse agentschap National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) - dan kunt u uw fantasie botvieren op een andere plek die vraagtekens oproept. Het gaat dan wel om een locatie in de ruimte, honderden kilometers boven de kust van Brazilië, zo bericht New Scientist.
Het gaat om een deel van de Van Allen-gordels, twee gordels van geladen deeltjes rond de aarde. Het gebied waar de binnenste van de Van Allen-gordels het aardoppervlak het dichtst nadert, wordt de Zuid-Atlantische Anomalie genoemd (ook wel South Atlantic Anomaly of SAA). De concentratie van hoogenergetische geladen deeltjes is daar op een bepaalde plaats hoger dan elders.
Gevarenzone Astronauten in spaceshuttles merkten eerder dat hun laptops soms crashten wanneer ze langs die plek reisden. Het internationaal ruimtestation ISS is om die reden extra beschermd tegen de straling in de SAA. De Hubble-ruimtetelescoop is zelfs zo voorgeprogrammeerd dat delicate instrumenten op die plek even worden uitgeschakeld om schade te vermijden.
Nu wetenschappers van het Nationale Instituut voor Astrofysica in Bologna een ruimtetelescoop aan het ontwikkelen zijn die geregeld langs die gevarenzone zal passeren, wordt het stilaan tijd om meer zicht te krijgen op het hoe en het waarom van de 'Bermudadriehoek van de ruimte'. Dat doen ze door data van een oude satelliet die er vaak passeerde, BeppoSAX, opnieuw onder de loep te nemen.
In kaart Uit de gegevens blijkt dat het stralingsniveau in het lagere gedeelte van de SAA veel beperkter is dan in de bovenste lagen. Dat komt overeen met de data van een andere satelliet die vijf jaar geleden geanalyseerd werden, maar zorgt wel voor een veel gedetailleerder beeld van de plek. Met de extra informatie wordt de SAA langzaam maar zeker in kaart gebracht, waardoor 's werelds ruimteagentschappen en onderzoekscentra hun missies en apparatuur effectiever kunnen uitrusten als ze door de SAA moeten reizen.

Bermudadriehoek van de ruimte onthult geheimen
Bermudadriehoek van de ruimte onthult geheimen
Er is een gebied boven het aardoppervlak dat astronauten hoofdbrekens bezorgt. Computers crashen er en satellieten slaan op tilt. Onderzoekers zijn bezig deze Bermudadriehoek van de ruimte, die zich op enkele honderden kilometers boven Brazilië bevindt, in kaart te brengen.
Het gebied waar de binnenste van de Van Allen-gordels, twee gordels van geladen deeltjes rond de aarde, onze planeet het dichtst nadert, wordt de Zuid-Atlantische Anomalie genoemd. Deze anomalie is van grote betekenis voor satellieten en andere ruimtevaartuigen die op een paar honderd kilometer boven het aardoppervlak om onze planeet draaien, omdat ze in de anomalie gedurende enkele minuten lang worden blootgesteld aan verhoogde straling.
Het internationale ruimtestation ISS moest vanwege dit probleem extra worden beschermd en ruimtetelescoop Hubble maakt tijdens het passeren van deze Bermudadriehoek geen opnames. Astronauten aan boord van spaceshuttles merkten dat hun laptops soms crashten als ze door de anomalie werden gevoerd.
Wetenschappers van het Nationaal Instituut voor Astrofysica in Bologna willen meer inzicht krijgen in de Bermudadriehoek van de ruimte. Dat gaan ze doen door data van een oude satelliet die er vaak doorheen vloog, BeppoSAX, uitgebreid te bestuderen.
Uit de data blijkt dat het stralingsniveau in het onderste gedeelte van de anomalie veel beperkter is dan in de hogere lagen. Vijf jaar geleden werd een soortgelijk beeld zichtbaar, toen de gegevens van een andere satelliet werden geanalyseerd. Met de informatie kunnen ruimtevaartorganisaties hun apparatuur beter beschermen tegen de Bermudadriehoek van de ruimte.
UFO sighting over Lincolnwood, Illinois on 26th May 2014
UFO sighting over Lincolnwood, Illinois on 26th May 2014
New interesting video footage of a dark UFO recorded in the daytime sky above Lincolnwood, Illinois on 26th May 2014.
Witness said: Chilling on patio on zero gravity chair and observed a fast moving object in the sky. Could be a bird but it moves pretty fast for one. I watched the video many times but I do not have programs to enhance the image. I can not tell what it is.
After a successful 2011 conference in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, we now bring our conference to San Mateo, California, June 28.
Is there a shadow and secret space program?
Join us as we present a carefully selected group of speakers gathered to ask some serious questions about the “deep state” and what is really happening in the world and beyond. We expose the most powerful invisible trends behind global geopolitical and financial trends.
Where did the money go?
Our program will include financial, historical and cultural analysis of the “Breakaway Civilization.” That’s the 1% of the 1% – the group whose wealth is exploding. We will discuss the system of hidden finance that put the American intelligence community in the role of international bankers. Multi trillion dollar financial fraud and market manipulations are actually mechanisms for financing the black budget programs and the privatized, centralized governance necessitated by high-tech secrecy. To what extent are historical amounts of debt and bailouts in the developed world, simply a financial mechanism to transfer wealth to a new “Breakaway Civilization”.
Is the UFO the hidden factor in modern history
Another topic is the implicated UFO Encounters with the World Militaries. Over the years, there have been many confirmed military encounters with UFOs. The energy and technology implications of these crafts and the probable political forces that are blocking changes to our energy paradigm are very much worth researching. Ever wondered how a breakaway civilization could operate with impunity?
Divorcing inner and outer space from each other is the core goal of all elites. When we end this divorce we will be privy to an astounding kind of knowledge. Not just new information, but a new kind of information. We would see with new eyes.
Inner space is consciousness. Eight billion people will need to have their inner space shut down, through mind control, for the outer space program to remain a secret. Is it possible to get out of this mess that is causing so much suffering and destruction on this planet? There are steps that can lead us to a new reality. We should act fast and shift our consciousness. If we wish to be part of an authentic ‘Breakaway Civilization’, we must first attain a ‘Breakaway Consciousness’.
What is really going on out there?
Is there a shadow and top secret space program? What is in space now and what can be? How does space influence all of our lives? Are there Cosmic Cultures and Civilizations, will they land, are they visiting us, are they under us? If so, how will this impact our lives? Midst all the myths and legends, speculations and interpretations, theories and perspectives, fears and “research”, how does one discern the truth? With the spins and twists presented in books, documentaries, conferences and speakers, you might find your answers during this unique conference.
If we manage to ask the right questions and put some of the pieces together we might be getting closer to some kind of answer – what is really going on out there? Who is really running things? What are their goals? Why are they behaving this way?
In the late afternoon, around 5:30 PM, my wife, son and I were out in the backyard. The weather was fair and clear. Approx. 75 degrees with no wind. Unlimited visibility. As we stood together between some trees I noticed a “bird” almost directly overhead. It appeared from overhead a 30″ tree canopy from the E. It moved in various sharp angles to a hover, and then back and forth between sharp angular turns to hover over and over for about 15 seconds. We all watched it. After approx. 15 seconds the “bird” moved off back to the E direction over the tree top it appeared from. The “bird” resembled the size of a large Raven. It was black. It had a segmented body. The body was that of a long tappered elipse with a round head with a long pointed “beak”. The “wings” resembled that of a dragonfly and it moved about like a Hummingbird. We discussed what it might have been and I said a Hummingbird, because I have seen them before and they darted about like that but knew that they are quite small at close range and this was no bird because of it’s size, structure, and movement. I am a skilled observer. As soon as it moved away back to the E over the tree top , immediately at the exact same elevation and area of the sky appeared from over the tree top an off white colored object from the E. It looked round at first. It seemed to be at a very high altitude and it moved at constant speed and direction like that of a high altitude commercial jet. There were about 30 degrees of overhead visibility inbetween the trees. I called it out and my son eventualy picked it up just before it disappeared over the treeline to the west. The elipse was slightly egg shaped, the point was at the front. The edges were clealy defined. There were no lights on it or reflections. I checked the weather conditons the next day with the NWS and the winds were light about 5 mph from the W. My estimation was that it was as large as a commercial jet at altitude. NOTE: The above image is a rendering.
NOTE: This case has been investigated by Ken Liperi of MUFON New Jersey. Since we are not allowed to classify cases as ”alien craft”, Ken classified this case as unknown.
They may not be Godzilla, which reappears in its latest incarnation today in theaters nationwide, but plenty of strange, reptilian-type creatures have been reported in Pennsylvania. None of the reports have been confirmed, and most have not been supported by photos, but multiple reports of each of the creatures have been recorded by cryptozoological investigators.
Giant snakes, from 15-20 feet in length and a foot or so in diameter, have been reported in various areas across southcentral Pennsylvania since the 1830s. They’re generally described as black, dark brown or dark gray, sometimes with yellow markings, and able to crawl along with its head raised several feet.
Multiple people claimed to have encountered one of the giant snakes at Devil’s Den near Gettysburg in April 1833. Several reports of a snake much larger than any known native snake species in Pennsylvania were recorded in the Allentown area in 1870-71. Most recently the reports of giant snakes have been concentrated mostly in The Broad Top area of Bedford and Fayette counties.
Dark maroon to dark green, 35- to 40-foot-long, sea serpent-type creatures, sometimes covered in large scales, have been reported in Lake Erie since the early 1800s. Reports spiked in the 1990s, when reports of Loch Ness Monster sightings also hit a peak. In Ohio’s portion of the Great Lake, the creature is known as South Bay Bessie, and Cleveland’s American Hockey League-team – the Lake Erie Monsters – has a sea serpent mascot.
Something similar was reported in Lake Raystown in Huntingdon County in 1962 and again in spring 2006. The reports also became the focus an investigation by a team from the Syfy Channel’s “Fact or Faked: Paranormal Files” in 2010. The team deemed a couple observers of the beast to be creditable witnesses, attempted to recreate the most recent photo without complete success and categorized the investigation results as undecided.
Thunderbirds, which were recorded in Native American folklore across the continent, sometimes are described as something similar to pterosaurs of the late Triassic and Cretaceous periods and other times as massive, condor-like birds with wingspans of 10 feet or more. A mysterious, vanishing and reappearing, Civil War-era photo that seemed to show several soldiers standing around a “downed” thunderbird has been debated for years.
More recently, reports of giant birds came out of the Allegheny Plateau region of northcentral Pennsylvania in the 1970s and the Greensburg area in 2001.
Other reports have circulated through the cryptozoological community of gargoyle-like creatures standing eight-feet tall and covered in tan or brown, leather-like skin (2011 near East Brady in Butler County) and, at the most extreme edges of the field, reptilian aliens that live in underground bases with the cooperation of the government. – PennLive
On Thursday 22, May 2014 1:30 pm In Phoenix Arizona.
The first part happened in about one minute.
I was mowing my lawn and when coming up to the west block wall to make a turn i noticed that there was an energetic change in the atmosphere immediately around me, then it became difficult to see the wall, there was something like a mirage in front of me. Then i sensed an acute increase in this energy around me and i thought to myself “There is something wrong with me maybe i’m having a stroke”.
Second part. 1-2 min
I was greatly worried and noticed that i had a thought that this was familiar like i had been through this before and then i started feeling panicky and went to turn the mower around and as i did then it hit me “im being abducted again”. Fight or Flight kicked in when i saw the being 4 feet in front of me semi transparent holding something. I tried to ram him with the lawnmower but i was paralyzed – stuck – helpless. The thing he was holding flashed and i was then unconscious.
I felt like i was dropping, yet still unconscious and when i could open my eyes i was on my bed in all of my dirty clothes with my shoes on. IT WAS 5:30pm.
My right arm was hurting so i looked and had a big bruise on my shoulder.
Now at this point my memory was fuzzy and did not know what happened to me.
I went outside and saw that the lawn was not finished and there were grass clippings all over the porch and the mower was in the middle of the porch. I never leave things this way.
I was woozy and perplexed. I sat outside until 2:am wondering what happened to me and why are things this way. I was so dismayed i could not sleep. Finally i did, and at 4:30 am I woke up in a panic because the memories came flooding back to me from the back yard. So i got a pen and paper and wrote the event down. Now i call this an abduction because since i was 5 yrs of age i have had night time abductions. My first experience at five i received 2 scoop marks on my right arm and have the scars to this day.
I don’t ever remember any daytime events before this.This has scarred me to death. There is something more benign about night abductions. Being taken away in the middle of the day while completely conscious. No paralysis and obviously against my will is new to me and i want to know if this has happened to anyone else. – MUFON CMS
Pregnant Pakistani woman stoned to death by family
LAHORE, Pakistan (AP) – A pregnant woman was stoned to death Tuesday by her own family outside a courthouse in the Pakistani city of Lahore for marrying the man she loved.
The woman was killed while on her way to court to contest an abduction case her family had filed against her husband. Her father was promptly arrested on murder charges, police investigator Rana Mujahid said, adding that police were working to apprehend all those who participated in this “heinous crime.”
Arranged marriages are the norm among conservative Pakistanis, and hundreds of women are murdered every year in so-called honor killings carried out by husbands or relatives as a punishment for alleged adultery or other illicit sexual behavior.
Stonings in public settings, however, are extremely rare. Tuesday’s attack took place in front of a crowd of onlookers in broad daylight. The courthouse is located on a main downtown thoroughfare.
A police officer, Naseem Butt, identified the slain woman as Farzana Parveen, 25, and said she had married Mohammad Iqbal, 45, against her family’s wishes after being engaged to him for years.
Her father, Mohammad Azeem, had filed an abduction case against Iqbal, which the couple was contesting, said her lawyer, Mustafa Kharal. He said she was three months pregnant.
Nearly 20 members of Parveen’s extended family, including her father and brothers, had waited outside the building that houses the high court of Lahore. As the couple walked up to the main gate, the relatives fired shots in the air and tried to snatch her from Iqbal, her lawyer said.
When she resisted, her father, brothers and other relatives started beating her, eventually pelting her with bricks from a nearby construction site, according to Mujahid and Iqbal, the slain woman’s husband.
Iqbal said he started seeing Parveen after the death of his first wife, with whom he had five children.
“We were in love,” he told The Associated Press. He alleged that the woman’s family wanted to fleece money from him before marrying her off.
“I simply took her to court and registered a marriage,” infuriating the family, he said.
Parveen’s father surrendered after the attack and called his daughter’s murder an “honor killing,” Butt said.
“I killed my daughter as she had insulted all of our family by marrying a man without our consent, and I have no regret over it,” Mujahid, the police investigator, quoted the father as saying.
Mujahid said the woman’s body was handed over to her husband for burial.
The Human Rights Commission of Pakistan, a private group, said in a report last month that some 869 women were murdered in honor killings in 2013.
But even Pakistanis who have tracked violence against women expressed shock at the brutal and public nature of Tuesday’s slaying.
“I have not heard of any such case in which a woman was stoned to death, and the most shameful and worrying thing is that this woman was killed outside a courthouse,” said Zia Awan, a prominent lawyer and human rights activist.
He said Pakistanis who commit violence against women are often acquitted or handed light sentences because of poor police work and faulty prosecutions.
“Either the family does not pursue such cases or police don’t properly investigate. As a result, the courts either award light sentences to the attackers, or they are acquitted,” he said. – AOL
The ‘details’ bit on my phone states this image was taken at 22:51:22 last night – I am really creeped out because I went to bed about 9:30-10ish last night and can’t remember getting back up! This is the only weird photo on my phone, can anyone help?? – Reditt.com
Oui, vous l’avez bien lu, l’installation militaire américaine en Alaska connue sous le nom de HAARP va fermer cet été. Quel bouc émissaire les conspirationnistes vont-ils bien trouver pour blâmer les anomalies climatiques maintenant, on se demande. Via io9.com:
Est-ce qu’un établissement qui a autant inspiré les théories du complot mondiales peut être désigné site du patrimoine mondial? Si c’est le cas, c’est peut-être la seule façon d’empêcher l’arrêt de l’activité du programme à haute fréquence, Auroral Research (HAARP) en Alaska, qui étudie l’ionosphère ou crée des ouragans mortels en fonction de qui vous parlez.
L’installation HAARP, un peu comme le Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, est un étrange hybride de la science militaire et civile. Elle a été conçue au milieu des années 1980, mais s’est retrouvée sans mission claire au moment où la construction a commencé en 1993 et la guerre froide s’est terminée. Financé conjointement par l’Armée de l’Air, de la Marine, la DARPA et l’Université de l’Alaska, le principal instrument de l’installation (de $ 290 000 000) est un tableau de 180 dipôles croisés qui sont espacés sur une superficie d’environ 30 hectares. Collectivement, le réseau peut transmettre jusqu’à 3600 kW de puissance rayonnée, ce qui a permis aux scientifiques d’étudier la physique de base et la façon dont se comportent les particules chargées dans l’ionosphère, de 80 à 500 kilomètres au-dessus de la Terre.
Les objectifs officiels de HAARP sont d’« identifier, enquêter et, si possible … servir à améliorer l’avenir de commande DOD, de contrôle et des capacités de communication … Les domaines de recherche qui seront explorées incluent la production d’ondes très faibles et de basses fréquences extrêmes, la production d’irrégularités du champ géomagnétique aligné, l’accélération d’électrons, et l’étude des processus atmosphériques supérieures ». Mais, plus tôt ce mois-ci, l’armée a donné un avis officiel au Congrès de son intention de démanteler HAARP cet été. David Walker, le secrétaire adjoint de l’Armée de l’Air pour la science, la technologie et l’ingénierie, a dit que ce n’est « pas un domaine que dont avons besoin pour l’avenir » et que les fonds de recherche serait mieux dépensés ailleurs. « Nous allons passer à d’autres modes de gestion de l’ionosphère, » a expliqué Walker.
NASA has published a report concerning ancient Roman UFO accounts, the report entitled “Unidentified Flying Objects In Classical Antiquity” was compiled by Richard B. Stothers.
Stothers, who was a graduate of Harvard, had four papers published in the Astrophysical Journal, and was also a member of the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies until his death in 2011.
The following is an extract from the report:
A combined historical and scientific approach is applied to ancient reports of what might today be called unidentified flying objects (UFOs).
Many conventionally explicable phenomena can be weeded out, leaving a small residue of puzzling reports.
These fall neatly into the same categories as modern UFO reports, suggesting that the UFO phenomenon, whatever it may be due to, has not changed much over two millennia.
Throughout recorded history, reports of what we today might call unidentified flying objects have been made and preserved.
If more information were available to us, we would perhaps find that conventional scientific hypotheses could explain most, if not all of these.
Certainly this has turned out to be true of most reports from better-documented periods.
There nonetheless remains a small residue of puzzling accounts, and regardless of what interpretation one places on them, these constitute a phenomenon that spans centuries of time and widely different cultures.
What may surprise the serious student of the subject is that, despite the numerous articles and books published by scientists on UFOs over the past six decades, almost no scholarly studies of the very early history of the phenomenon have appeared.
What little has been accomplished was initiated in 1953 by the astronomer Donald Menzel’s naturalistic interpretation of reports in Pliny the Elder’s Natural History.
Menzel’s study, however, proved superficial, and had the unfortunate consequence of inducing UFO enthusiasts to compile long, uncritical lists of all kinds of phenomena seen in the ancient skies and call them UFOs.
Their methodology was roundly criticized in the 1968 Condon Report by Samuel Rosenberg, who did not, however, attempt a fresh start by tracking down and analyzing the primary sources themselves.
Richard Wittmann, ignoring these authors, produced in 1968 a more scholarly, but also more restricted study of ancient “flying shields.”
The subject has languished since 1971 and 1975, when Peter Bicknell published two cautious articles in which UFOs were treated only incidentally.
The most liberal attitude would allow that, to an ancient observer, many aerial phenomena were mysterious and hence to some extent unidentified, despite the observer’s ability to describe them in familiar subjective terms and despite ancient attempts at theorizing about their nature.
Today we can filter out the most obvious cases of conventional phenomena, in spite of the archaic terminology used to describe them.
The approach adopted here will be to search for aerial phenomena in the more reliable ancient reports that look like modern UFOs, but without ignoring other manifestations of “strangeness.”
My working hypothesis will be that most such reports can be explained by conventional scientific ideas and that, among all the reports, only those that defy reasonable interpretation after full analysis can be said to resemble the most puzzling reports made today.

One of my favorite memories from elementary school was the Scholastic Books flyer. These seemed to come around randomly, almost magically. This was before gigantic booksellers and the internet, and if you were a kid who read, this was the shit you waited for. Four to eight pages of books suitable for kids 12 and younger, all reasonably priced with free shipping to your school. Fiction, non-fiction, puzzles and reference books. You name it, they seemed to have it. I specifically remember a 96-page book on sharks that I used as a reference to write reports (on sharks) well into college.
This was back before cable TV, when there were not dozens of TV shows about ghosts, aliens, or other assorted paranormal mysteries available at your finger tips. These topics were not popular and definitely weren't mainstream like they are today. But there, amongst the Choose Your Own Adventure books, were tomes on Secret Knowledge, UFO sightings, Alien Abductions, Ghostly Hauntings, Mysteries of the Mayans, the Loch Ness Monster and the Bermuda Triangle. Books that opened doorways to new worlds, other dimensions. Many of these books were written by a man named Brad Steiger.
Brad Steiger has 170 books to his name. Most of which inhabit the spiritual or paranormal world in one form or another. Steiger is the undisputed Godfather of the paranormal fact genre. He's collaborated on books with other bigwigs of that world, like Whitley Strieber and Art Bell. You've seen him interviewed on TV shows and heard him on Coast to Coast.
POLICEMAN GIVEN MANDATORY RETIREMENT AT A CLOSE ENCOUNTER OF THE THIRD KIND! – PART II
POLICEMAN GIVEN MANDATORY RETIREMENT AT A CLOSE ENCOUNTER OF THE THIRD KIND! – PART II
(Before It's News)
Young Pucheta was found on a rural road parallel to Provincial Route 1 by a farmer returning from the city of General Pico in an area identified by police as “The Triangle”. When we arrived at the site, the farmer was in the middle of the road, away from Pucheta, who rested in a fetal position on the western side of the road, in the direction of Quemú Quemú.
First contact was initiated by Commissioner Ayala, who attempted initial communication without an answer. I approached Pucheta from the right, I knelt to be at his same elevation and noticed that he did not change position and kept his extremities in a visibly rigid position, surely the result of considerable emotional shock.
I tried speaking to him to make him react. I told him that the chief of Regional II was beside him and the person speaking to him was there to help. Subsequently, I asked him to relax by means of a simple breathing exercise, urging him to inhale through his nose and exhale through his mouth. Gradually, Pucheta began to loosen up and I was able to examine his hands without finding any abnormalities. The same occurred with his head, although I couldn’t see his face. He said his eyes burned, keeping his face concealed.
When he stretched his lower extremities, he haltingly began to say: “they followed me all night”. When asked “by who?” he replied: “It was two of them…they had red eyes…”. When asked about his pursuers’ appearance, he said: “They looked transparent…and had red eyes…their eyes made my head hurt…they told me what they wanted me to do…they made me make a phone call…they told me they would come for me tonight…”
Asked about his sidearm, he said: “I don’t know”, a sentence he repeated when asked about his radio and cellphone. “…they followed me all night…” he repeated.
Having relaxed his body considerably, I asked him to stand up, and assisted by Commissioner Ayala, he stood up and began weeping next to his superior. I urged him to do so, in order to relieve his anguish. He concealed his face at all times. He asked to sit down and managed to do so with our assistance. He always kept his face covered with his forearms. Ayala asked him to lift his head, and he did so halfway, but without opening his eyes.
He insisted: “They had red eyes” and that “…they would come for him at night…” His condition was that of a person who had undergone a powerful emotional shock.
He further added that his fingers were burning, but no visible abnormalities were evident. He then said that his feet were burning, and was helped to remove his hiking boots and socks. The soles of his feet presented signs of having walked extensively, with blisters due to perspiration.
A doctor arrived by ambulance, telling him help was on the way, but firmly deciding to convey him directly to Centeno Hospital in General Pico.
We helped him get on the stretcher. He stood up, and covering his face at all times with his forearms, placed himself face down on the stretcher.
His arrival at the hospital prompted readiness in the emergency room. Three nurses assisted him in removing his clothing and Dr. Covella began a surface examination that yielded no abnormalities. I asked whether a sedative was in order, to which the doctor said no, since Pucheta said he was tired and wanted to sleep, leaving unanswered certain questions posed by the physician.
Dr. Covella confirmed that a full workup would be performed (blood and urine) and that he would remain under observation for at least 24 hours. It was ascertained that he had no physical injuries. Pucheta never returned to work again.
The Red Eyes
We are faced with a typology which, while not unknown, has a certain measure of aggressiveness given the aftereffects to the witness. Since the last years of the 1990s, cases had been recorded in the province with the same description: Red eyes. There were several cases in which eyewitnesses claimed seeing something for which “their red eyes” was all that could be described. Some compared them “as if they were two burning coals.”
What if UFO occupants knew years ago that in 2014, humans would be obsessed with smart phones which have apps for placing fake UFOs in pictures? And what if the UFO occupants planned all along to use this stage in human history with these fake videos and pictures, to their own advantage? That advantage could be for a good purpose or a bad purpose, from our human point of view.
If UFO occupants are future humans – or even if they are of other origins – they probably have a method for seeing the human future. I don’t mean this in terms of a fortune teller or psychic; rather, what if they can reasonably predict the march of human technology and perhaps other aspects of our unfolding history?
It seems the march of our technology would be the easiest to predict. Math and thus technology are more “set in stone” than human politics and social development. Of course it is all linked. However, it would seem that on any developing planet with physical beings, it could be a reasonable certainty that the invention of the computer would come along.
Of course, there would also be an older communication device between inhabitants such as the telephone. Then when the moment comes that the computer and the telephone get together, there you have a predictable stage in the timeline of that planet. And here come the fake videos and pictures!
How could the current abundance of fake videos and pictures be used by the UFO occupants to their own advantage? First, let’s take a look at a typical fake which fooled a local television station recently:
May, 2013: California television News WMFD was embarrassed after they were informed that their coverage of an apparent UFO photograph was instead the product of a readily available cell phone app.
The photo showed what appeared to be a disk-shaped craft above a field; it was so amazing that news reporters rushed to the picture-taker’s house. The story took off! Luckily OpenMedia.com recognized the silver saucer and let it be known it was a hoax.
The picture was created using the Camera360 smartphone app. The picture-taker had the same app on the cell phone he used to take his “unexplained” photo. This man stuck to his story that it was a real UFO, but he said he would check to see if the app was accidentally used.
Yes, the man was probably a deliberate hoaxer but apparently these fake UFOs can show up randomly in your pictures from time to time if you haven’t shut off the app which generates them. Of course this app is just great for anyone who intentionally wishes to fake a UFO in a photo.
This is just the tip of the fake iceberg because, of course, fake videos are generated through computer technology all the time. Sincere ufologists have a real headache on their hands, it is almost enough to make one give up (but not quite!). There are now so many fakes that we long for the good old days when cameras had film in them and computer-generated special effects did not exist. Of course even back then, the UFO field had plenty of fake pictures, so we sincere, passionate ufologists must trudge on; we are always going against the wind, anyway.
Back to the big question: If UFO occupants knew we would reach this stage of computer development, how are they now using it to their advantage?
Well, they can show up to their hearts’ content (if they have hearts), and no one will pay any attention. Take all the real pictures and videos you want, a majority of people will just assume it is another fake.
UFO occupants could even land more easily now. Sure, go ahead and take a picture of a saucer which has landed, will anyone believe you? No doubt some commenters on UFO sights will just be snarky and call you bad names.
Do the UFO occupants want to be “here” but not here? That seems to have been their agenda thus far. They have not landed to shake our hands and have not set down on the White House lawn. So the great confusion caused by the flood of fake pictures and videos seems to work into their overall plan all these years, “We are here but we dare you to prove it!”
What is their overall plan? Is it to get humans completely accustomed to the existence of UFO occupants? Or is it to observe Earth, interfering once in a while like when they bother nuclear missile codes, but still remain untouchable by humans?
Perhaps UFO occupants hate the fake videos and pictures as much as we do. One thing is certain, it does seem they could predict that we humans would hit this point in technology. Then “of course” some of us would misuse it for hoaxes. It makes sense that they would use this stage if they could.
What I really hope is that the fakes have absolutely no bearing on UFO Disclosure and on humankind’s entrance into the galactic community as we finally do meet UFO occupants face to face. No fakes allowed!

HAARP verantwoordelijk gehouden voor verdwijning MH370 en polar vortex
HAARP verantwoordelijk gehouden voor verdwijning MH370 en polar vortex
In juni gaat het Amerikaanse militaire onderzoekscentrum HAARP dicht. Velen geloven dat het instituut wordt gebruikt als superwapen. HAARP is één van de meest veelbesproken onderzoeksinstituten. De officiële uitleg van de Amerikaanse overheid – onderzoek doen naar verbeterde technologieën voor radiocommunicatie – werd door diverse complottheoretici niet geloofd, onder wie de in 2007 overleden natuurkundige Bernard Eastlund.
Zij beweren dat HAARP extreme weersomstandigheden en zelfs natuurrampen veroorzaakt. Eastlund zorgde voor sterke wetenschappelijke argumentatie van die stellingen, waardoor in zowel Alaska als binnen het Europees Parlement meerdere hoorzittingen plaatsvonden om de zaak te onderzoeken.
HAARP zou daarnaast ziektes veroorzaken en de antennes op het terrein zouden dienen als wapen om vijandige raketten te vernietigen. Ook de crash van het ruimteveer Columbia, de eerste spaceshuttle van de NASA, zou veroorzaakt zijn door de straling van HAARP. Er zijn genoeg andere theorieën over het ware doel van HAARP. Het Britse tijdschrift The Week heeft de beste en meest ongewone voor je op een rij gezet.
Sommigen hebben voorgesteld dat het onderzoeksinstituut verantwoordelijk zou kunnen zijn geweest voor de crash van vlucht MH370 van Malaysia Airlines. “Kan HAARP het mysterie rond het vermiste vliegtuig verklaren?” vroeg een forumlid van Godlike Productions zich af. Het toestel is mogelijk uit koers geraakt omdat ‘HAARP de radarsystemen beïnvloedde’.
Zeebeving bij Japan in 2011
Uit gegevens van de NASA blijkt dat enkele dagen voor de zware aardbeving in Japan merkwaardige ‘atmosferische anomalieën’ zijn waargenomen, meldde Natural News. De ‘ogenschijnlijk onverklaarbare’ opwarming van de ionosfeer boven het epicentrum van de aardbeving wijst erop dat HAARP mogelijk verantwoordelijk is geweest voor de beving, de daaropvolgende tsunami en de ramp met de kerncentrale van Fukushima.
Afgelopen jaar werd het oosten van de Verenigde Staten getroffen door ijzige koude, sterke winden en nieuwe sneeuwval. Als gevolg van een ‘polar vortex’ kelderde de temperatuur. De burgernieuwssite Before It’s News publiceerde een grafiek met de titel ‘America under HAARP attack’. The Freedom Agenda dacht hetzelfde en beweerde dat HAARP in staat is de ionosfeer en daarmee de straalstroom te beïnvloeden.
Volgens Mysterious Universe was spaceshuttle Columbia een schietoefening voor HAARP. Het is niet duidelijk waarom de VS een eigen vaartuig zou gebruiken als doelwit, maar volgens voormalig NASA-ingenieur Marshall Smith was het een ‘terroristische aanslag uitgevoerd door al-Qaida’.
HAARP is overal verantwoordelijk voor
Noem een natuurlijk fenomeen en iemand zal denken dat HAARP erachter zit, schreef Stephanie Pappas voor LiveScience. Sommigen suggereren dat HAARP het bewustzijn van mensen beïnvloedt of in staat is onze realiteit te veranderen.
Voordat de officiële website van HAARP in 2013 offline ging, zeiden woordvoerders van het instituut dat er nooit geheime onderzoeken zijn uitgevoerd. “HAARP is niet geheim,” stond op de website te lezen. “Er zijn geen geheime documenten over HAARP.”
Volgens een team astrofysici onder leiding van Eric Lerner van Lawrenceville Plasma Physics (LPP) dijt het heelal niet uit. In de ruimte om ons heen – op aarde, in het zonnestelsel en in de Melkweg – lijken objecten steeds kleiner en zwakker te worden terwijl ze van ons af bewegen. Hun oppervlaktehelderheid blijft daarbij constant.
De oerknaltheorie leert ons dat objecten in een uitdijend heelal niet kleiner maar groter moeten lijken, aldus de wetenschappers. In dit geval neemt de oppervlaktehelderheid af met de afstand. Het licht wordt uitgestrekt terwijl het heelal uitdijt, waardoor het steeds zwakker wordt.
In een uitdijend universum moeten de verste sterrenstelsels een veel lagere oppervlaktehelderheid hebben dan nabijgelegen sterrenstelsels, waardoor ze met huidige telescopen niet waar te nemen zijn.
De wetenschappers zagen iets anders, zo blijkt uit hun studie in het International Journal of Modern Physics D. Ze vergeleken de omvang en helderheid van zo’n 1000 nabijgelegen en extreem verre sterrenstelsels. In tegenstelling tot de voorspelling van de Big Bang-theorie ontdekten ze dat de oppervlaktehelderheid van de nabije en de verafgelegen sterrenstelsels identiek was.
Dit was niet de enige verrassende ontdekking. Om de oppervlaktehelderheid te kunnen bepalen moest het team eerst de absolute helderheid van de sterrenstelsels vaststellen. Dit hebben ze gedaan door de roodverschuiving van de sterrenstelsels te bepalen. De relatie tussen roodverschuiving en afstand werd vergeleken met gegevens over de helderheid van supernova’s.
Door de helderheid van verafgelegen supernova’s te vergelijken met die van dichtbij, kunnen astrofysici de afstand bepalen die het licht heeft afgelegd. Door deze afstand te vergelijken met de roodverschuiving van verre supernova’s kan de mate van versnelde expansie van het heelal worden uitgerekend. Het team concludeerde dat de afstand overal proportioneel is ten opzichte van de roodverschuiving.
Als het universum niet uitdijt, neemt de roodverschuiving als gevolg van een andere oorzaak toe met de afstand, aldus de wetenschappers. “Een dergelijke roodverschuiving, die niet wordt geassocieerd met expansie, kan in de toekomst met een ruimtevaartuig worden waargenomen binnen ons eigen zonnestelsel,” besloot Lerner.
UFO mania: UFO and ancient astronaut prehistoric paintings found in remote cave?
UFO mania: UFO and ancient astronaut prehistoric paintings found in remote cave?
The image was found in the Hoshangabad district of the state of Madhya Pradesh only 43 miles from the local administrative centre of Raisen. The caves are hidden deep within dense jungle.
A clear image of what might be an alien or ET in a space suit can be seen in the cave painting along with a classical flying saucer shaped UFO that appears to be either beaming something down or beaming something up, in what might be an ancient UFO abduction scenario. A force-field or trail of some sort is seen at the rear of the UFO.
Also visible is another object that might depict a wormhole, explaining how aliens were able to reach Earth.
Local Archaeologist, Mr Wassim Khan, has personally seen the images. He claims that the objects and creatures seen in them are totally anomalous and out of character when compared to other, already discovered, examples of prehistoric cave art depicting ancient life in the area. As such he believes that they might suggest beings from other planets have been interacting with humans since prehistoric times.
Few years back, three and a half million years old Prehistoric human skull was discovered in Ahthnor village of Madhya Pradesh by geologist Dr. Arun Sonakia. It is possible that the image was drawn by those ancient humans.
Did encounters like this help Indian ancient civilization understand how those alien spaceship worked and later documented in Vimana shastra?
There are likely many more cultures that parallel each other with certain characteristics in separate locations. What is interesting to see is that perhaps a more advanced culture first resided in an region that was ousted from the area by locals who commandeered the knowledge getting credit as “natives” for something an original culture of the region actually began. Paracas: (also known as the elongated skull people of Peru) an Andean society between approximately 800 BCE and 100 BCE, with an extensive knowledge of irrigation and water management. Interestingly, the Nazca culture took over the region after the Paracas (magically) right when the Paracas went bye-bye around 100 BC. Hmm(*an ousted race replaced by the ousters?) HoHoKam: In North America, the Hohokam were the only culture to rely on irrigation canals to water their crops, and their irrigation systems supported the largest population in the Southwest by AD 1300 when they then disappeared off the radar. Archaeologists working at a major archaeological dig in the 1990s in the Tucson Basin, discovered their possible “ancestors.” (source“what we’re doing now is stripping off those canals. We stripped below them to a lower cultural horizon that dates from about 1250 B.C. to around 1150 B.C., 1100. along the Santa Cruz River), identified a culture and people that were ancestors of the Hohokam that might have occupied southern Arizona as early as 2000 BC.” (*Is it possible that this culture just found in the Tucson Basin referred to as possible ancestors for HoHoKam might have actually been predecessors?)
Lovelock Cave: Amazing tule woven duck decoys and other items were found in Lovelock cave in the early 1900s along with the giant skeletons the Paiutes reported their ancestors burning to death in the cave long ago. An unusual skull was hidden away in the basement of a museum and the tule items on display as reportedly Paiute work. Source: Anasazi have been dated back to 12,000 BCE. The latter culture in this region were the Chacoan people who began in the mid 800s and lasted more than 300 years. We can see it clearly in the grand scale of the architecture. Using masonry techniques unique for their time, they constructed massive stone buildings (Great Houses) of multiple stories containing hundreds of rooms much larger than any they had previously built. The buildings were planned from the start, in contrast to the usual practiced of adding rooms to existing structures as needed. Constructions on some of these buildings spanned decades and even centuries. Although each is unique, all great houses share architectural features that make them recognizable as Chacoan…. What was at the heart of this great social experiment? Pueblo descendants say that Chaco was a special gathering place where many peoples and clans converged to share their ceremonies, traditions, and knowledge. Chaco is central to the origins of several Navajo clans and ceremonies. Chaco is also an enduring enigma for researchers. Was Chaco the hub of a turquoise-trading network established to acquire macaws, copper bells, shells, and other commodities from distant lands? Did Chaco distribute food and resources to growing populations when the climate failed them? Was Chaco “the center place,” binding a region together by a shared vision? We may never fully understand Chaco.
Repeatedly, these things are found at the sites of ancient giant skeleton finds -
Intricate weaving Animal effigies, both carved into bowls and pipes and as petroglyphs in rock and geoglyphs on the land Copper mining areas Waterways, major lakes/rivers with access to ocean often Elongated skulls with prominent brow ridges Mounds that appear like sawed off pyramids Sarcophagi, stone burial coffins Adornment with shells, freshwater pearls Astronomical alignment stone structures Unusually built structures ahead of their time Bones found in caves Heiroglyphs that to some look known languages around the world Signs of cannibalism Bodies adorned with red ochre at death
This all gets quite murky when one considers that native cultures have adopted almost all of these characteristics into their heritage. It becomes more difficult to pick apart where the giant culture began the process and where the tribes that moved in took over the giant culture's arts and technology and over time made it their own.
The ironic thing is that we see these universal features in “Native” groups around the globe and they cropped up simultaneously from stone megaliths to human sacrifice, language to use of metals. Either you can believe that, separated by continents, prehistoric man was developing nearly identical technology and arts, or they were influenced by something that was there when they arrived- a universally spread race of primitive-looking people who took their knowledge from perhaps Asia and spread it around the world as they took to the seas to conquer and settle.
My stand on this subject is that this ancient giant culture evolved ahead of homo sapiens (likely a branch of homo erectus) and began all this world travel by sea and industry, taking its knowledge to new places. Then, perhaps a hundred thousands years later, when homo sapiens arrived into these regions, they took on these sites of the giants, likely after skirmishes and wars with these carnivorous kind. This allows for newer and less “artful” versions of reverse engineering what the “originators” did.
What we are likely to see archaeologists mulling over is lesser creations beside better creations, half built sites, crude attempts at recreations nearby, or even “natives” taking on the building and adopting credit by their ancestors.
I believe such things have been found at places like the pyramids and Easter Island, as well as Mexico, Central and South America.
In fact, if you go down the list of characteristics of ancient giant cultures, you also come to realize, these were their contributions to mankind that followed
