'Flying saucer' clouds over Dublin
True believers could be forgiven for thinking they had found proof of extra-terrestrial life over Dublin as strange UFO-like clouds hover ominously over the capital.
A number of the fluffy flying saucers turned up in the sky over the city centre today as temperatures on the east coast soared into the low 20s.
The saucer-shaped 'objects' caused a stir, no doubt in part because seeing something in the sky that is not a giant miserable grey blob is always cause for celebration.
The phenomenon of UFOs is always a fascinating topic and a problematic one as well. While reporting UFO sightings for example, when can get caught up in location, and frequency. It is important for the investigator to understand the geographic area of a sighting and to know a little bit about airline approaches and other such locales that may contribute to mistaken sightings and oddities.
UFO reports that are just reports are good for research and comparison; however the best evidence is what can be gathered with pictures and video recording. Even with recordings of various lights in the sky at night and anomalous aircraft in the day, there will always be an armchair analyst that is willing to make up supposed “proof” of faking or hoaxing in order to thwart investigations into the UFO sighting or possible flap.
Like many ‘fringe’ subjects, there are scattered bits of solid information floating in a frothing sea of mythology, speculation, and disinformation. If the UFO happens to be a falsehood, more than likely an investigator will be ridiculed and accused of perpetrating the hoax.
Internet video captures a lot of attention on YouTube, and so with sophisticated software, would be special effects artists have created some remarkable footage. This footage appears to be so real even experts can be fooled.
The internet video that is created by skilled hoaxers is now part of the new cover up of UFO activity and so those who participate in sophisticated hoaxes are part of the plan to keep UFO sightings secret and are used as disinformation to discourage anyone from even considering that UFO sightings are happening. Investigators call these attempts at hoaxing “noise.”
The sheer volume of noise and confusion in the field of UFOlogy is staggering. There are those attempting to suppress and obfuscate the truth, and even more simply attempting to profit from the tremendous interest by manufacturing hoaxes.
This distracts from unusual or potentially dangerous sightings that are and in some cases give many people the reason to disbelieve or reject that UFO’s, mainly aircraft unidentified do not exist. A belief that all unidentified objects are piloted by aliens does not help the cause of critical investigation either.
The potential danger of UFO’s can be a threat to national security. Unidentified flying craft can very well be missiles, stealth aircraft, or even unknown technology from an enemy of the United States.
There are also many people who mistakenly write off UFO sightings as drones, however drones are rare and in some states are considered illegal to fly anywhere without the right clearances or permits.
There is currently no federal regulation of unmanned aircraft, but Congress passed a law two years ago ordering the FAA to issue national rules legalizing drones for commercial purposes by September 2015.
There are still arguments over recreational drones and whether or not they should be illegal – or considered model aircraft.
In 2011, the FAA penalized drone videographer Raphael Pirker $10,000 for using a drone. Pirker challenged the fine, and a federal administrative-law judge overturned the penalty, saying there was no law banning the commercial use of small drones.
This month The FAA released its interpretation of rules for model aircraft after recent incidents involving reckless use of drones. The FAA states that hobby or recreational flying doesn’t require FAA approval, but recommends following their safety guidelines, which encourage contacting the airport operator when flying within 5 miles of an airport, not flying near manned aircraft or beyond the operator’s line of sight. It also specifies model aircraft as weighing fewer than 55 lbs.
Model aircraft operators were encouraged to voluntarily comply with the standards, which include not flying higher than 400 feet and notifying the airport operator when operating within 3 miles of an airport.
Complacency is the greatest weakness in the security of the USA. A small drone can be used by any terrorist to carry an explosive device to any target inside the USA. If it was sighted as a UFO and not reported, we could easily see the terrorists utilize the cover of a UFO sighting to carry out a terrorist attack.
The national security apparatus is becoming so proficient in protecting us from ourselves that they seem to be ignoring the idea that we may have real enemies waiting at our borders and, in some cases, testing their weapons in plain sight.
The security apparatus is so good at selecting suspects from their own style of homegrown paranoia that they pour a great deal of money into projects that violate civil rights while above us the skies are wide open for unforeseen events. Budgets that would protect us – from the various fireballs, UFO’s and weapons tests that people are now seeing, reporting, and being told to shut up about – have been cut.
The debate continues over exactly what the truth is behind the sightings of anomalous objects that are above the Earth. The U.S. Air Force has explained on many occasions that a lot of what is seen can be explained. However, with the obsession of extra-terrestrial mythology and reality, every bright light, shooting star, experimental plane, and weather anomaly can end up on the front pages of tabloid newspapers and on special fringe news programs labeled as bona fide extra-terrestrial craft with the acronym UFO attached to it.
A mysterious object lit up the dark sky in the southeast about an hour after midnight. The sighting was captured in Georgia, South Carolina, and Alabama.
It was described as a bright ball of light moving fast across the sky. It made a trail and was also seen with other lights accompanying it.
The same can be said of a fireball or UFO that was spotted over Hillsboro, Oregon. Two lights were seen chasing each other. One flashed an eerie green and the other flashed a red and gold light. They eventually disappeared.
Meanwhile a sighting was also reported in Welches, Oregon near Mt. Hood. Dan Coe who works at a hotel in the area said that there was a thunderstorm in the area and as he was looking at the lightning he notice a clearing in the night sky. In that clearing he saw a UFO and happened to snap a picture of it before it disappeared.
NASA informed everyone that the strange lights people were seeing everywhere was space junk coming down into the atmosphere.
NASA has been accused of hiding proof of extraterrestrial life after it cut short a live stream from the International Space Station which, appeared to, show three UFO’s fleeing the Earth. The footage was reportedly captured from NASA’s ISS live cam feed, and shows three objects rising out of Earth’s atmosphere.
NASA was reportedly forced to end a live stream from the International Space Station as three UFOs blasted into space.
But this is not the first time conspiracy theorists claim NASA has inadvertently captured extra terrestrial activity.
Live streams from the International Space Station have triggered hundreds of viral videos showing UFO’s approaching or flying past the station.
One of the more popular videos shows the feed at night, suddenly an arrowhead shaped UFO appears at the ISS Just before the Live Feed is cut 6/8/2014.
Meanwhile there has been debate as to whether or not NASA is waiting to divulge information about extra terrestrial anomalies. There has been a lot of talk online about the sighting of huge pyramid and bright lights on the Dwarf planet CERES and a possible pyramid that has been revealed to be on Mars by the mars Rover.
Earlier this year there was speculation that the Rosetta project’s Philae probe that landed on comet 67P had made communication with aliens and then it inexplicably shut down.
Philae, the first spacecraft to land on a comet, phoned home again on June 14th, 2015 and made contact with the European Space Agency ending its seven month silence.
The next probe that NASA will attempt to launch is the Origins Spectral Interpretation Resource Identification Security Regolith Explorer. Narrowed down to a mere acronym the aircraft will be called OSIRIS REX.
Its destination is the asteroid Bennu. Born in a violent collision millions of years ago, Bennu can tell us more about the story of the solar system, perhaps even the story of our origin.
Bennu is the Egyptian deity associated with the Phoenix. The Bennu was a self-created being said to have played a role in the creation of the world. It was said to be the Ba (that is, the spirit) of Ra and enabled the creative actions of the sun god Atum. It was said to have flown over the Egyptian waters of “Nu” that existed before creation, landing on a rock and issuing a call that determined the nature of creation. It was also a symbol of rebirth and was therefore associated with Osiris the father and Isis the mother goddess. The Bennu was a heron bird that would die and then would be reborn on the “Benben stone” as the first rays of the new dawn would arrive.
Earlier this month, NASA and university scientists hosted a panel in Washington D.C. to discuss the latest advancements in the search for life, with the focus on habitable planets. Another similar discussion – focused on water in the universe – was held on April 7, 2015, also in Washington D.C. At the April discussion, NASA chief scientist Ellen Stofan made a bold statement when she predicted that we would find “strong indications” of microbial life within a decade and “definite evidence” of it within 20 to 30 years.
At the same time, NASA also released an info graphic outlining evidence for or indications of water on a number of worlds in our solar system. Those worlds with possible water include the dwarf planet Ceres, now being orbited by the Dawn spacecraft, a world with two mysterious bright spots that might be icy plumes. And NASA included Jupiter’s moon Europa on its new info graphic. This month, NASA announced that it was moving forward with plans to send a spacecraft to study Europa, which was found recently to have salt water in the dark fractures on its surface. That salt water is presumably from the liquid ocean thought to lie below Europa’s frozen crust.
NASA has now outlined its plan to search for alien life and said it would launch the Transiting Exoplanet Surveying Satellite in 2017.
With all of this interest in extra-terrestrials and possible life and discovery, the question is why NASA insists on shutting down its live feed whenever something unidentified decides to bump up next to the ISS or decides to take off from planet earth.
NASA is good at taking down live feeds, but is becoming worse at covering up the fact that they know something is in space. Either we see it with our telescopes or we can detect it with instruments that can see what we don’t see.
Einstein, along with many, many wise teachers, have all said that the invisible is more important and meaningful than the visible. As a species we are just now evolving into that realization. Maybe 5% of Earth’s population actually understands something of this concept. Most of the rest of us still believe in only what our five senses can convey despite the fact that when we touch, or pick up an object we are holding mostly empty space.
Evolved aliens would likely have grown beyond our archaic and erroneous idea that the material world is all that really matters. Evolved aliens, therefore, would have learned to partner the visible and the invisible in their quantum “technology.”
That being the case, we might well be having visitations on any number of levels and be completely unaware of them.
In the last century anthropologists found a number of “primitive” tribes hidden in the jungles and were delighted to study them, but had no wish to give up what they referred to as “civilization” in order to go interact or live with them.
An accidental hook up or discovery would be kept close to the vest until the technocracy felt it was appropriate to reveal the data.

BIZARRE ‘UFO’ lights filmed over a remote part of Russia have been called “the real deal” after they went viral on YouTube.
The bright and apparently hovering lights were captured in the sky in the Astrakhan region of Russia at dusk.
Onlookers who recorded the footage were puzzled by the fact what appeared to be elongated orbs of light clustered near each other appeared to be static.
And when the camera panned out they appeared to be hovering over a road by a lake in empty countryside.
Around 100,000 people viewed the video on YouTube, with one posting: “I think this could be the real deal.
“A number of reports of UFO sightings and personal witness reports link back to what is pictured here.”
More sceptical observers debated whether they were just Chinese lanterns or a flare.
There is more than five minutes of recorded footage and the lights appear to flicker and, at one stage, even twirl during the video.
There is most definitely something strange captured here. The differences noted are the length of the video, background images shown, as well as some zoom in and out of the object(s). A lot of UFOs have grainy 30 second clips that put the whole thing in question right off the bat.
Latest UFO report submitted. Incident occurred on 2015-05-12 at 12:00AM.
Viewed (unobstructed) from my front deck overlooking the valley after watching television early one evening, about an hour after dark. First time, my wife was on the deck and called me outside to see the orbs — then we heard the jets fly over our area going toward the orbs.
Front Porch where the sighting took place (no UFO in this photo)
I am a retired corporate senior manager and former combat-zone Air Force veteran; observed 3 to 5 orbs in a “V” formation on 3 separate occasions (no pattern to intervals), all located in the general vicinity of the Captain Mountains Northeast of Ruidoso, NM — between Carrizozo and Roswell, NM — above or near the Ruidoso Airport — over approximately a 90-day period.
1st sighting was clear night sky in late February; 2nd was high-altitude thinly overcast night sky late March or early April. I dismissed the first two events — but remained baffled at the cause for the sighting — but wrote them off to “military training” and some sort of new weapons systems.
Both times the orbs were stationary and were east-southeast of my location near Alto, NM; they were NOT falling night-flares, or lights descending or ascending, but had the capability of moving laterally at high speed, then stopping “on a dime”. Appeared 1, then 2, then 4, then 3, then 2 then 3, then vanished one after another; with the 1st orb pausing, then vanishing after the others.
Both times the 1st set of two fighter jets appeared shortly after the orbs appeared. The jets were moving at high speed (sub-sonic) toward the orbs, about 1 minute apart, from west to east directly overhead at my location. As the jets appeared to arrive near the orbs they vanished one at a time. The jets made a wide turn from eastbound and headed to the south and left the area. Those two sightings were nearly identical except the 1st event, there were up to 5 orbs in the same location, and the 2nd event there were only 3 orbs (…possibly 4 because one appeared to vanish and move laterally, slightly out of the “V” shape, with slight separation to the east of the other two orbs).
The third sighting on 11 May 2015 at approximately 7:40 to 7:50 pm (MST) was unique. High thin clouds, night sky. Same orange-yellow orbs — same size, distance, and location in the sky east of my location in Alto, NM. Again, two jets were heard heading west to east overhead (possibly from Holloman AFB) at high speed (sub-sonic)t toward the orbs, roughly 1 minute separation.
As the 2 jets approached, the stationary orbs once again vanished in sequence, with 1 orb pausing, then it vanished last, after the others. They did not move. They simply appeared, one or two vanished for a short period, reappeared, then they all vanished for good — in no particular sequence. Those orbs did not move from stationary position while they were visible and there was NO SOUND — nothing in my experience could maneuver like that — except a helicopter or Harrier-type jet — but there was NO SOUND except for the 2 approaching military jets.
Still during the ongoing third sighting, as the jets sped east towards Roswell and soon were out of sight (and sound range), two of the original orbs re-appeared in the same location as before — stationary and silent. It appeared as though the two jets moving eastward must have made a wide, right-hand turn and re-approached the orbs from the south moving northward at same high speed (sub-sonic).
Two additional jets then appeared in the far northern sky estimated over Vaughn, NM area moving south towards Ruidoso, NM (again, not in formation) at a high rate of speed (sub-sonic) and with about a 1 minute separation (estimated 2 to 4 miles apart like the first pair). It dawned on me that they all may have been approaching in that manner for “safety” reasons, rather than flying in tighter formations. The 1st pair of jets had done the same throughout the event. A 3rd orbs became visible in the same stationary position as the other two to the east-southeast of my location.
Then, all of a sudden, two more orange-yellow orbs of the same size and brilliance, and due northwest of the the other orbs, appeared 90 to 100 degrees west of my location — now there were a total of 5 orbs at two different locations in the sky. They too, appeared suddenly (one first, then the second – not simultaneously – but about 5 seconds apart) due north of my location — and those 2 orbs sat stationary at approximately the same altitude as the other orbs but at a 45-degree angle from my location.
The second pair of jets that were arriving southbound from the north veered west, as the first pair of jets veered off eastward over the Captain Mountains, once again toward Roswell. Each pair of jets were moving in opposite direction. Then the two stationary orbs directly north of my location moved horizontally at exactly the same moment about a mile westward — then stopped — as though “teasing” the jets that came from the north. As those 2 jets moved west then made wide, left-turns headed South, the two orbs “danced” briefly, and then rotated impossibly — at tremendous speed in a PERFECT – VERTICAL CIRCLE, equal-distance from each other, and each with a very faint tail — moving counter-clockwise like you were watching the tips of the hands on a clock move backwards (from my vantage point looking due North).
It was a tight vertical circle estimated at 2-miles in diameter. The speed they were moving was impossible (in my experience) — it was an amazing display! There is no drone or vehicle known in my experience that could do what those two orbs did. They did two revolutions counter-clockwise, then stopped their vertical motion in a stationary, horizontal position about a mile or so apart, then one vanished and the second vanished within about 4 or 5 seconds, later, as the westbound jets turned left again and headed north toward the area of the two “dancing” orbs.
The four jets remained in the area a few minutes after the orbs vanished. Two of them returned northward from the direction they first came; the first two jets to appear on scene, moved Southwest as though headed toward Holloman AFB. The entire event from first sighting the orbs until all the jets were gone and drifted off in the distance (detected by sound) lasted about 15-minutes or less. There was no “hot pursuit” — in fact, the military jets appeared to be keeping their distance from the orbs — intentionally. Once again the sky went silent. I live in a very remote area, and when I say “silent” that is exactly what I mean.
I noted that on the first pass by all 4 jets they were sub-sonic and displayed no lights. As they came near to the orbs (say 3 to 5 miles away) they displayed safety blinking lights for the remainder of the event. There was absolutely no sound from the orbs. They appeared, moved, stopped in stationary position, then rotated, and vanished with no sound whatsoever.
My wife witnessed the first sighting — in fact, she called my attention to it. She was not present to witness the 2nd and 3rd events. I should say, that during all three sightings I did not feel “fear” – however, the orbs moving in the vertical circle was a pretty astonishing sight to see for an old Air Force veteran!
Next time, I will try to film the event if it happens again.
The public rarely hears about interactions between military personnel and unexplained aircraft — especially during wartime.
As time goes on, however, UFO stories stuck behind red tape begin to see the light of day. The Vietnam War saw its share of UFO activity in the 1960s.
One close encounter, in 1968, involved the crew of an American patrol boat that reported two glowing circular craft following them in the demilitarized zone that separated North and South Vietnam (see depiction below).
The crew aboard a second patrol boat later reported seeing the UFOs over the first boat and a flash of light, followed by an explosion that completely destroyed the boat. These Vietnam reports included close observation of the unknown aerial craft which appeared to house pilots (see recreation image at the top of this story).
Wartime UFO stories are recreated in the premiere episode of the second season of History’s “Hangar 1: The UFO Files.” The accounts are drawn from tens of thousands of UFO cases in the archives of the Mutual UFO Network, the world’s largest UFO investigation group.
“The military was interested in [UFOs] because they had capabilities far above anything that we had, and they wanted to find out what the technology was and, frankly, who they belonged to,” according to former Air Force intelligence officer, Capt. George Filer.
While in Vietnam, Filer — who had a top secret clearance — gave daily briefings to Gen. George S. Brown, deputy commander for air operations in Vietnam.
“Frequently, the Vietcong or North Vietnamese would be attacking an outpost and I would explain that, and we would have ground-air support, particularly at night where we’d go in there with these gun ships, and I would give briefings on all of that,” Filer told The Huffington Post. “Some of the time, there would be unidentified craft over the DMZ.”
Filer described a typical report that he’d receive and which he included in his briefings to Brown:
“You’d have an aircraft flying along, doing around 500 knots and a UFO comes alongside and does some barrel rolls around the aircraft and then flies off at three times the speed of one of the fastest jets we have in the Air Force. So, obviously, it has a technology far in advance of anything we have.
“I would be told this unofficially. People tell you a lot of things that they don’t put in writing or sign their name to. There was always this part of UFOs that, if you got too interested, it could mess up your career. And this is true today even with commercial pilots. I’ve also heard from people serving in Afghanistan saying they’ve seen UFOs, and the Iranian news carries UFO reports pretty regularly.”
During a 1973 press conference, five years after the patrol boat UFO encounters, Brown — as USAF chief of staff — was asked about the Air Force’s position on UFOs:
I don’t know whether this story has ever been told or not. They weren’t called UFOs. The were called enemy helicopters. And they were only seen at night and they were only seen in certain places. They were seen up around the DMZ in the early summer of ’68. And this resulted in quite a little battle.
And in the course of this, an Australian destroyer took a hit and we never found any enemy, we only found ourselves when this had all been sorted out. And this caused some shooting there, and there was no enemy at all involved, but we always reacted.
Always after dark, the same thing happened up at Pleiku at the Highlands in ’69.
Many stories about battling UFOs have emerged throughout history.
One early account of UFO warfare was supposedly seen by the citizens of Nuremberg, Germany, in 1561. On a morning in April, the Nuremberg Gazette reportedly described an aerial battle between large “cylindrical shapes from which emerged black, red, orange and blue-white spheres that darted about… All these elements started to fight one against the other.” An artist, Hans Glaser, created a woodcut of the spectacle, seen below:
During World War II, also in Germany, Allied aircraft pilots often reported mysterious glowing, fast-moving, circular lights, which were dubbed Foo Fighters. The New York Times reported it as “military slang for flying saucers.”
Filer — who documents his sightings and other UFO news at the National UFO Center site — was one of several military eyewitnesses to something extraordinary in the sky over England. It was 1962, and he was the navigator on a refueling tanker.
“We were out over the North Sea when London Control called and asked if we would be willing to intercept an unidentified that was over Oxford and the Stonehenge area. We had just finished up our refueling mission, so we said sure, and they cleared all the traffic around us and gave us top priority as we descended towards the UFO. All they really had was a very large radar return, but it was much bigger than a normal aircraft.”
Filer (pictured at right) recalled how his radar scope indicated the UFO was as big as the huge Firth of Forth Bridge in Scotland that he and his crew often used as a regular navigation point.
“The ‘thing’ was at 1,000 feet and we were descending from 32,000 feet. We picked up this huge radar return while we were still about 30 miles out. It was dark out and when we got much closer to the object, we saw lights around it, outlining the shape of a cylinder, like a cruise ship. It then just quickly rose and went up into space.
“We were pretty sure we’d just seen a UFO.”
Filer also told HuffPost that he has heard from air traffic controllers who claimed they were told to “always divert aircraft away from UFOs and deny that it existed. I think they want this whole situation to go away, and I think [the policy] is coming from the National Security Council — they’re at the highest level. It sounds funny, but presidents don’t always know what their National Security Council is doing.”
Upcoming episodes of “Hangar 1″ over the next 12 weeks will focus on folks who’ve held military positions and are willing to come forward and tell their stories.
One of those (hold onto your hats) is a man who claims he was in the Marines (wait for it…) and that he was stationed on Mars for several years. That’s right: the red planet Mars. He’ll describe being part of an off-planet military force. Let’s not pass judgment…yet.
There’s also the story of a retired Army sergeant who says he was assigned to UFO crash and retrieval cases where both ships and ET bodies were supposedly recovered — some dead, some alive.
In case you were wondering, Hangar 1 is an actual hangar where MUFON, for a long time, stored all of its archives. At one point, all of the organization’s files were housed in this airport hangar somewhere in the middle of the country. The images of Hangar 1 that appear in the series are of the real hangar.
The witness first noticed a pulsating object the night of March 18, 2015 while letting his dogs outside.
The witness started to watch it with the naked eye, trying to determine what is was. After a few minutes it was realized that it was not a plane or helicopter.
This is when a camera was introduced and the following images and videos were taken. This object has been returning almost every night to generally the same area, near Okotoks, in Alberta Canada.
The UFO appears in frame and seems to fade in and out, unsure if this is the object itself, or the focus of the camera lens.
This report was submitted to the MUFON UFO reporting database. Good high resolution photos were taken. It would be helpful to know what type of camera was used, and what settings were on when the photo was taken as well. This would be a useful data point in the reporting database I believe.
There is a lack of reference points in these pictures and video, but they are interesting, none the less.
So many UFO sightings get muddied along the way. Here’s a mystery I didn’t know much about until I did a little bit of research. In 1965 something fell from the sky, a brilliant fireball with the flash being seen in Indiana, Michigan, Ohio and Pennsylvania. Grass fires broke out, including one just outside Kecksburg, in south-west Pennsylvania as, whatever it was, came to earth. In Lapper, Mich., the County Sherriff Kenneth A Parks said his office received a report that an unidentified object fell into a field about half a mile south of Lapeer, just east of M 24. Source: Herald Journal – Dec 10, 1965 One of the firefighters at the scene was James Romansky. James Romansky, 57, of Derry Township was then a 19 year old firefighter. He told the Associated Press that he was among those who drove to the landing site. “Now, I’m prepared for a smashed-up airplane … and I’m thinking, ‘What the hell is this?’ I’m looking for wings, propellers, motors, a fuselage – but there’s none of that,” Romansky said, “There’s no rivet marks on it, no windows, no doors – no possible way of getting in and out of this thing that I seen. “There was writing on it, but not writing that you or I could understand. I always referred to it as something like the ancient hieroglyphics. There was dots and dashes and circles,” Romansky said. Source: Observer Reporter – Dec 6, 2003 Other witnesses described a ‘fireball’ and a metallic, acorn shaped object about 12 to 15 feet high and 8 to 12 feet in diameter landed in the woods – as per photo at top of post. Military personnel quickly surrounded the site, removed the object, threatened residents who tried to enquire about it, and left – later calling the object ‘a meteor’. Source: Beaver County Times – Dec 7, 2003 Going back to 1965, Sheriff Kenneth A Parks (previously mentioned) only admitted that his men found some pieces of shiny metallic foil, each four to six inches long and about a quarter inch wide. Source: Spokane Daily Chronicle – Dec 10, 1965 The Sarasota Herald-Tribune – Dec 9, 1965 reported: U.S. Army officials and the Pennsylvania State Police Thursday night sealed off an area in south-west Pennsylvania explaining the ‘is an unidentified flying object in the woods’. A spokesman from the Army’s 662 Radar Squadron said, ‘We don’t know what we have yet.’ After sealing off a wooded isolated area at Kecksberg, officers said Army engineers were being called to the scene. No conclusions can be made from the above – but there is no doubt much more information to be found on the Internet if interested.

While driving home from northern BC between Quesnel and Williams Lake on Highway 97 on June 19, 2015 I spotted a craft that I initially thought to be a huge kite and pointed it out to my wife. The highway traveled in a southerly direction and the craft seemed to be paralleling the highway and the Fraser River, the river being approx. 1/2 mile to our west. As we drove along, the object was traveling nearly at our speed of 60 mph and seemed to be across the river another mile or more. We had a very good view of the object and there was a trailing apparatus below the craft and it appeared to be of a very heavy chain or cable with a little larger object at its trailing end.
That is what made me first think of a kite, but it wasn’t stationary. The trailing cable was at about a 35 degree angle from the bottom of the craft. At a convenient pullout with a clear view of the craft I pulled over and took out my binoculars for a quick look and my camera, a Kodak Easy Share Z950 and zoomed in on the object for a photo, but it wouldn’t seem to focus clearly on it, kept going in and out of focus. It seemed to be somewhat transparent through the viewfinder and with the binoculars, but was clearer with the naked eye.
The trailing tail looked to be at least two hundred feet or more in length and I now suspected the object at its end was an apparatus that may have been collecting data, for I was now positive it was not a Canadian aircraft of any sort I have seen.I am a professional land surveyor with over 45 years of experience, and observations are most relevant to that occupation.
The photo 1 has some nearby pine trees above the craft, a triangular shape with a definite protrusion at the top and bottom of its rear end and a long, elongated additional wing, if I may, at the bottom of the craft from near the front tapering toward the rear. There was a bit of a haze look across the valley, but when I first saw the object it appeared much clearer than the photo and was below the main cloud cover. One lower cloud can be seen somewhat, in front of the object. I got back in the car and traveled on southward and thought if I sped up some I could get a little closer and get another photo. But as I sped up, so did the object and the long heavy trailing cable was now at a 50 degree angle, proving it had speeded up also. I stopped and got the photo 2 at a further distance away, but it doesn’t show a great deal other than its semi transparency.
That tree line on the horizon appeared to me to be two to three miles away and the object appeared to be even further. The tallest trees on that horizon are probably not over 100 ft. in height, which gives the impression that this craft is very large. I kept up my speed as some lower mountains I would enter would obstruct the view and hoped to see the object again as I neared the top of the hill trending down into Williams Lake, but the craft was never seen again.
Op een foto van het Amerikaanse ruimtevaartagentschap NASA is een piramidevormig object te zien. Paranormal Crucible stelt in een video op YouTube, die al bijna twee miljoen keer is bekeken, dat het gaat om het puntje van een veel grotere piramide.
De foto werd op 7 mei 2015 door de Marsrover Curiosity gemaakt. Volgens Paranormal Crucible is er op Mars een piramide van bijna perfecte vorm gevonden, ter grootte van een kleine auto. Het object is het resultaat van intelligent ontwerp en zeker niet het gevolg van een speling van licht en schaduw, zo klinkt het.
Inmiddels heeft NASA zelf gereageerd op de vondst. “Het is een rots,” zei dr. Jim Bell, hoofd van het Marsprogramma van NASA en hoogleraar astronomie aan de Arizona State University. “Het is wellicht een vulkanische steen, zoals de meeste rotsen die we via de Marsrovers zien. En net als veel vulkanische rotsen op aarde, kunnen ze afbreken in scherpe, hoekige vormen. Deze heeft toevallig de vorm van een piramide, iets wat eigenlijk ook niet zo ongewoon is voor harde, dichte vulkanische stenen op aarde.”
Bell voegde toe dat uit een analyse van het Curiosity-team is gebleken dat de rots niet hoger is dan 10 centimeter, en daarmee net zo groot is als een frisdrankblikje.
Astronomen: Parallelle universa zijn mogelijk geschikter voor leven dan het onze
Astronomen: Parallelle universa zijn mogelijk geschikter voor leven dan het onze
Bestaat er leven in andere universa? Over deze vraag heeft een groep astronomen zich gebogen. Ze hebben een paper gepubliceerd waarin ze schrijven dat andere universa veel geschikter kunnen zijn voor leven dan het onze. Het hangt allemaal af van de omstandigheden op het moment dat die universa werden gevormd, aldus de sterrenkundigen.
Er is inmiddels veel bewijs dat we in een multiversum leven, waarin net zoveel universa als sterrenstelsels bestaan. Elk universum wordt waarschijnlijk gekenmerkt door verschillende natuurwetten en eigenschappen. Het gaat dan volgens natuurkundige Fred C. Adams en zijn collega’s van de Universiteit van Michigan met name om verschillen in ‘primordiale dichtheidsfluctuaties’ (Q) in elk universum.
Q beschrijft het verschil tussen dichte en lege gebieden in de ruimte, in dit geval in een universum. Een hoge Q betekent dat er veel fluctuaties zijn, met extreem dichte gebieden en extreem lege gebieden. In ons universum is Q niet zo hoog, wat verklaart waarom de materie redelijk verspreid is en er grote ruimtes tussen sterren en sterrenstelsels zitten.
Wat als we in een universum met een hoge Q zouden wonen? Sterren zouden veel dichter bij elkaar staan zodat je overal zonlicht vandaan zou krijgen, niet alleen van één lokale ster. Het zou er gevaarlijker zijn omdat er veel meer gigantische rondvliegende rotsblokken zouden zijn. En er zouden meer sterren op elkaar botsen.
Maar een sterrenstelsel met een hoge Q zou ook veel warmer en bewoonbaarder dan de huidige sterrenstelsels zijn. Je zou dan op een planeet zonder moederster door het sterrenstelsel kunnen reizen en baden in het licht van honderden nabijgelegen sterren.
Dergelijke planeten zouden niet eens een moederster nodig hoeven te hebben om in de bewoonbare zone te liggen. Er zouden miljoenen verdwaalde, bewoonbare planeten kunnen zijn die worden verwarmd door andere sterren. Leven zou overal kunnen ontstaan, zelfs tussen de sterren.
Ster van Bethlehem? Spectaculaire samenstand van Venus en Jupiter
Ster van Bethlehem? Spectaculaire samenstand van Venus en Jupiter
Venus en Jupiter zijn vandaag en morgen vlak bij elkaar te zien aan de hemel. De planeten, die in werkelijkheid miljoenen kilometers bij elkaar vandaan staan, bewegen zo dicht langs elkaar dat ze lijken te versmelten.
De twee helderste planeten aan de avondhemel zijn het beste zichtbaar rond 23.00 uur richting het noordwesten. De site Sky & Telescope meldt dat Venus en Jupiter zo dicht bij elkaar staan dat ze eruitzien als een heldere dubbelster aan de avondhemel.
Fred Schaaf van Sky & Telescope wijst erop dat deze serie samenstanden tussen Jupiter en Venus doet denken aan een soortgelijke serie in de jaren drie en twee voor Christus. Er wordt gesuggereerd dat de twee planeten samen de ster van Bethlehem vormden.
De planeten draaien in hetzelfde baanvlak om de zon. Wij bevinden ons ook in dat baanvlak. Terwijl planeten rond de zon draaien zien we ze langs dezelfde lijn aan de hemel bewegen. Jupiter staat de komende dagen vanaf de aarde bekeken precies achter Venus. De kans dat dat gebeurt is vrij klein.
Samenstand Venus en Jupiter op 28 juni @ Jonesborough, Tennessee (Mark Marquette)
Met een kleine telescoop of krachtige verrekijker kun je Venus en de manen van gasreus Jupiter op een spectaculaire manier in beeld brengen. Op 1 juli staat Venus slechts 24″ (minder dan een maandiameter) ten zuiden van Jupiter. Venus is de helderste van de twee.
Venus staat nu op iets meer dan 56 miljoen kilometer van de aarde en Jupiter op zo’n 900 miljoen kilometer van onze planeet. Omdat Jupiter 11,8 keer zo groot is als Venus, lijkt het alsof beide planeten ongeveer even groot zijn.
“Dat de twee helderste planeten zo dicht bij elkaar staan is prachtig en zeer ongewoon,” zei Robin Scagell van de Society for Popular Astronomy. “Veel mensen zullen zich afvragen wat ze zien, maar het is gewoon een natuurlijk verschijnsel.”
Harvard-professor: "Ja, mensen worden ontvoerd door aliens"
Harvard-professor: “Ja, mensen worden ontvoerd door aliens”
John Mack was een Amerikaans psychiater en hoogleraar aan de Harvard Medical School, die voor zijn biografie van T.E. Lawrence werd bekroond met de Pulitzerprijs. Mack is vooral bekend geworden door zijn onderzoek naar de ervaringen van mensen die beweerden te zijn ontvoerd door buitenaardse wezens.
Hij was zo ongeveer de enige serieuze wetenschapper die zich met het verschijnsel bezighield. Veel andere academici willen wel, maar zijn bang dat het hun carrière zal vergallen. Daarnaast lijkt de Amerikaanse regering er alles aan gelegen te zijn om de zaak stil te houden.
Over het waarom van buitenaardse ontvoeringen bestaan allerlei wilde speculaties. Volgens de meest gehoorde theorie zouden een aantal machthebbers een deal hebben gesloten met ‘de grijzen’. In ruil voor menselijk genetisch materiaal zouden zij de buitenaardse technologie mogen gebruiken voor hun oorlogsindustrie. Als dit waar is, zal niemand hier natuurlijk openlijk voor uitkomen.
Berichten over defensievoorlichters die toegeven dat UFO’s inderdaad bestaan, belandden in de jaren negentig in bijna alle kranten ergens onderaan op pagina zeven. Nu komen ze vaak helemaal niet meer in de krant te staan. Toch heeft NASA-astronaut Brian O’Leary voor zijn dood bijvoorbeeld gezegd dat er veel bewijs is dat buitenaardse beschavingen ons al heel lang bezoeken.
Professor Mack constateerde dat ontvoerden zich de details van hun ontvoering vaak niet herinneren. Onder hypnose lukt het een stuk beter. Dan weten ontvoerden weer precies hoe de wezens eruitzagen.
Ingrijpend en traumatisch
De gevolgen van een buitenaardse ontvoering zijn ingrijpend en traumatisch, vertelde Mack. Dat komt omdat ontvoerden in het ruimteschip vaak worden onderworpen aan intiem lichamelijk onderzoek. Hij zei dat er geestelijk niets mankeerde aan de slachtoffers. Ze waren ten volle bij hun verstand en vertelden hun verhaal met grote overtuigingskracht.
“Het gebeurt tot op een bepaalde hoogte zowel letterlijk als fysiek en het is tegelijkertijd een psychologische, spirituele ervaring die mogelijk plaatsvindt in een andere dimensie,” zei Mack. “Het fenomeen vraagt ons open te staan voor realiteiten die buiten de letterlijke fysieke wereld bestaan, open te staan voor de mogelijkheid dat er onzichtbare realiteiten zijn waarvoor ons bewustzijn, onze leerprocessen ons in de afgelopen paar honderd jaar hebben afgesloten.”
Buitenaardse basis in het Andesgebergte, Zuid-Amerika ( Video )
Buitenaardse basis in het Andesgebergte, Zuid-Amerika ( Video )
Het is ’s morgens vroeg als een vader en een zoon een aantal vreemde lichten zien in het Andesgebergte in Peru.
De zoon wordt bang, maar de vader zegt dat hij dit soort UFO’s al 45 jaar lang regelmatig ziet.
Het voorval vind plaats in de stad Tarma, de hoofdstad van de gelijknamige provincie, en bevindt zich ruim 200 kilometer ten oosten van Lima, in het Andesgebergte. Deze streek is bekend vanwege de belangrijke beschavingen die hier vroeger hebben gewoond, van de pré Inca tot de Incabeschavingen.
Het is dus een plek waar het wellicht niet zo vreemd is om UFO’s waar te nemen. Zoals we eerder in de week zagen, verschijnen ze regelmatig bij oude monumenten zoals de Piramide van de Zon in Mexico.
De video hieronder is opgenomen op 22 juni 2015, heel vroeg in de ochtend. We kunnen duidelijk de zes en soms vijf verschillende lichten onderscheiden.
Je kunt aan de stem van de zoon horen dat hij toch een beetje angstig is. De vader denkt dat de lichten geen afzonderlijke UFO’s zijn, maar toebehoren aan hetzelfde ruimteschip.
Dit zou ook kunnen verklaren waarom de lichten op dezelfde afstand van elkaar blijven. Interessant is dat de vader ergens tijdens de opname zegt dat hij al 45 jaar lang getuige is geweest van dergelijke objecten.
Natuurlijk zijn er altijd mensen die dit soort lichten af doen als Thaise ballonnen, maar dat lijkt niet erg waarschijnlijk, bovendien niet om vijf uur in de ochtend. Bovendien is er de verklaring van de vader dat hij dit soort UFO’s al 45 jaar lang heeft waargenomen.
Wat meer waarschijnlijk is, is dat er zich daar ergens diep verscholen in het Andesgebergte een buitenaardse basis bevindt.
De volgende twee interessante foto’s ontvingen wij van een lezer (dank!) die het volgende schreef:
Deze foto heb ik gemaakt in augustus 2011. Wij waren toen in de Karpathen in het zuidwesten van Oekraine. Later viel de bruine vlek pas op. Deze is alleen te zien op deze ene foto en niet op de vele honderden ervoor en erna.
Naderhand heeft het verschijnsel zich nooit meer voorgedaan. De foto is gemaakt met een semiprof Nikon D-300 spiegelreflex (niet op de hoogste resolutie). Technische gegevens van de foto, zie de EXIF-gegevens. Ik stel uitdrukkelijk dat de foto inzake de bruine vlek NIET bewerkt is.
De 2e foto is slechts een uitvergroting.
Misschien hebt u een verklaring voor de bruine vlek op de foto?
Nee, een concrete verklaring hebben we niet voor die “vlek”, behalve dat het verdacht veel op een UFO lijkt. Mocht iemand anders een verklaring hebben dan horen we dat graag.
Dancing Lights In The Sky Above Greenwood, Indiana Cause UFO and HAARP Speculations
Dancing Lights In The Sky Above Greenwood, Indiana Cause UFO and HAARP Speculations
While riding a bicycle outside, a man witnessed strange lights in the clouds on June 12, 2015. Thinking that the appearance of lights in the clouds was so weird, the witness pulled out his phone and started recording.
The man said that he had no idea about the mysterious phenomenon until he did some research when he got home. He found out that it’s called HAARP, a research program of the government. When the beam disappears in the video for a second, it seemingly moves part of the cloud upwards them comes back.
The American military and the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) funded the High-Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP).
According to a conspiracy theory, HAARP has created clandestine experiments of weather manipulation, which could trigger freak weather phenomena, such as hurricanes, drought, earthquakes, and other natural disasters.
However, some researchers believe it was a cloaked UFO, having some fun activities at the top of the cloud.
He noticed the light that appears to be curved around a disk at the upper part of the cloud. Some think that the sunset accidentally uncloaked the cloaked UFO.
Meanwhile, scientists said that the “dancing storm clouds” phenomenon, as well as other similar shifting light effects in the clouds, isn’t linked with UFOs or HAARP.
Meteorologists explained that the phenomenon is connected to storm clouds called cumulonimbus clouds. Cloud’s charged water particles move around in response to shifting electric fields as lighting strikes within the cloud below. The phenomenon causes these dancing patches of brightness. However, scientists admitted that more work needs to be done to support further this case.
An expert from Cloud Appreciation Society website, Les Cowley, said they need more reliable evidence, cloud-physics modeling, and more measurements before they can hope to come up with a clear explanation. Cowley admitted that they are nowhere near that position.
Tonight – June 30, 2015 – and tomorrow night, look for the sky’s brightest and second-brightest planets to stage their closest conjunction until August, 2016. Venus and Jupiter will be less than one-half degree apart. That’s less than the moon’s diameter on our sky’s dome.
Venus is currently about to pass between the sun and Earth. It will sweep some 8 degrees S. of the sun on August 15. Meanwhile, Earth passed between Jupiter and the sun in February, 2015. So Jupiter and Venus are nowhere near each other in space.
And yet, as we look outward from Earth, we see these two planets aligned on nearly the same line of sight.
Our friend on G+ Mohamad Fadzli caught Venus and Jupiter tonight – June 30, 2015 – as the sun set over Melaka, Malaysia. Thank you, Mohamad!
Here’s approximately how Venus and Jupiter would look now if you could view them from a larger perspective. Not to scale. Chart via Jay Ryan at ClassicalAstronomy.com. Used with permission.
So Venus and Jupiter are not close together in space. Venus, the second planet outward from the sun, presently resides a little over 0.5 astronomical units from Earth. In contrast, Jupiter, the fifth planet outward, looms way beyond Venus some 6 astronomical units away from Earth.
By the way, one astronomical unit = the mean sun/Earth distance (approximately 150 million kilometers or 93 million miles).
Venus is a small, rocky planet like Earth. Jupiter is a huge gas giant planet.
And yet Venus and Jupiter do have things in common. They both appear bright in Earth’s sky in part because the cloud cover on these worlds is so good at reflecting sunlight.
Jupiter is much farther away than Venus, and yet its sheer size guarantees the king planet’s brilliance. Jupiter’s diameter is nearly 12 times greater than Venus’ diameter. And Jupiter is nearly 12 times farther away from Earth than Venus is tonight. That means, as seen through the telescope, the apparent angular diameters of Venus and Jupiter would appear about equal.
This artist’s concept depicts the relative sizes of Venus and Jupiter. Jupiter is the biggest one. Venus is the little world to the right of Earth – about the same size as Earth.
Jupiter, the largest planet in the solar system, rotates more quickly than any other planet. It spins full circle relative to the backdrop stars in less than 10 hours. Venus, the sixth largest planet, rotates more slowly than any other solar system planet, rotating full circle relative to the backdrop stars in 243 days.
So enjoy Jupiter and Venus tonight! They are very different worlds, but both spectacularly bright in Earth’s sky – and spectacularly near each other!
Also, be sure to circle July 18, 2015 on your calendar. Venus will be almost in conjunction with the star Regulus, brightest star in the constellation Leo the Lion. On July 18, the crescent moon, Venus and Jupiter will all fit within a circle sporting a diameter of less than four degrees (approximately two finger-widths at an arms length). Don’t miss out on this close-knit celestial grouping on July 18, featuring the moon, Venus and Jupiter – the brightest, second-brightest and third-brightest orbs of nighttime, respectively.
Circle July 18, 2015, on your calendar. The waxing crescent moon, Venus, Jupiter and Regulus will convene in the west at dusk/nightfall.
Bottom line: On June 30, 2015 – and on July 1 – shortly after sunset, watch for Venus and Jupiter! They are the sky’s brightest and second-brightest planets. This is their closest pairing in the evening sky until August 27, 2016.
Is it wise to be sending messages to E.T and what would E.T. contact mean?
E.T. Contact!….Friend or Foe? Its not the first time its been done by far, but with new technology coming available we can send them farther and faster than ever before.
The cover of the phonograph record on the Voyager 1 and 2 spacecraft, which contains an interstellar message encoded on a phonographic record.
Many have expressed concern about how SETI will reveal the Earth’s location and expose our planet to other civilizations but a chief scientists at the SETI Institute in California said that these radio messages to aliens will not result in an alien invasion.
Recently, a statement posted online (http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/meti_statement_0.html) asserted that messaging extraterrestrial intelligence (METI) carries “unknown and potentially enormous implications and consequences.” Signed by a number of well-known scientists – and people such as Elon Musk – the missive asks that a vigorous international debate take place before any new messages are sent.
Astronomers have been picking up radio waves from outer space and analyzed then since 1960, but nothing tangible ever came out of that. This new plan to send radio messages intends to switch things up and make us more available.
Director of the Interstellar Message Composition program, Doctor Douglas A. Vakoch, stated he thinks that any civilization who can travel through space can already pick us Earth’s TV and radio signals. These signals have been leaking into space ever since man created them, so Active SETI doesn’t pose any additional risk.
But what if we make contact?
The plan is to follow the The Post-Detection SETI Protocol. See Here:http://www.coseti.org/setiprot.htm
The next question is will they be Friendly and assist in Mankind’s evolution and understanding of the universe?,..or are they a enemy we just announced our location to? Lets take a look at both possibilities.
No one knows how it would happen, but leading scientists believe that some day we will make contact with extra-terrestrial intelligence. And if the aliens make it to Earth, they may not come in peace. In the event of a hostile alien visitation, here’s how it might play out…
WHAT WOULD HAPPEN IF…? Sometime in the future – possibly the very near future – the world will go about its business as usual. But at a remote observatory, a space anomaly is reported. Something unusual – and large – appears to be approaching Earth. Experts aren’t sure how to react. The first sighting alerts sky-watchers around the world…
8 HOURS BEFORE CONTACT Astronomers scramble to analyze an object only 8,000 kilometers from Earth – closer than our moon. It has crept into earth’s orbit with no warning.
The next group to take an interest in the anomaly is military.
US Space Command uses global satellite tracking systems, telescopes and radar to search for any type of airborne or space threat. The object is not natural.
TWO HOURS BEFORE CONTACT At US Space Command, astronomers don’t know if the anomaly is an actual vehicle. Then comes confirmation; in a solar system where every object is constantly in motion, the unknown object stops. Space Command officials agree that it must be powered.
The next step is to establish contact. The UN Office of Outer Space Affairs committee quickly crafts a simple message, transmitted to the spacecraft over television and radio signal. The message is transmitted simultaneously in the most widely spoken languages of the world: Mandarin Chinese, Spanish, English, Arabic and Hindi.
Astronomers see no response to Earth’s communication. Space Command attempts contact using the universal language of mathematics in a sequence of prime numbers.
CONTACT As the craft approaches Earth, screens go blank, data streams cut out, and communications suddenly cease. Cell phone calls are dropped and TV images go out. All of Earth’s satellites fail, but optical and radio telescopes are still receiving information. The aliens have knocked out satellite communication.
THREE HOURS AFTER CONTACT Military’s prepare for the worst. Squadrons of F-18s – possibly our planet’s most effective and versatile air-to-air weapon – scramble into action. But, for alien crafts to travel through the stars, they have propulsion technologies beyond physics that we even understand and can evade F-18 missiles fired at twice the speed of sound.
Military’s try to intercept and decode alien communication. Humvees with broadcast dishes target alien crafts with microwaves to jam signals, cyber-attacking invaders.
On the ground, a desperate military unleashes experimental weapons like the U.S. Air Force’s highly classified X-37B spacefighter. But experimental weapons are no match.
FIVE HOURS AFTER CONTACT While nations of the world combine forces, the alien air force clears the skies then blasts military targets around the world, following our own radar signals before moving on to attack the infrastructure of our society, leaving one last hope: nuclear weapons.
Somewhere in the Atlantic Ocean, a submarine releases a Trident II ballistic missile, carrying nearly 3.5 megatonnes of destructive power. The missile breaks apart into eight self-guided warheads. But, Earth’s mightiest weapon has no impact.
From shielded bunkers and secret locations, surviving military leaders issue orders for a surprising new tactic. Instead of attack, they order their forces to run away.
24 HOURS AFTER CONTACT The alien invasion is complete. The invaders control the skies and ground. Earth’s remaining communications hubs call for civilian evacuation. In the panic to flee, desperate crowds become rioting mobs.
Roadways grind to a halt. A successful getaway demands some other form of transportation. For some, safety from aliens and rampaging humans means going underground. Subway tunnels and sewers provide safe exits from burning cities.
According to the experts, the destruction of civilization is predictable. And, it is accounted for in the plans to fight an alien invasion. But, while military defeat may be predictable, it’s not the end of the war. Among the survivors of Earth – in caves, and forests and deserts – there grows the seeds of rebellion.
FIVE DAYS TO SIX WEEKS AFTER CONTACT With cities destroyed, remnants of humanity are on the run. Urban chaos and failed evacuations kill thousands in the first day. Scavenged supplies, canned food and clean water along with flashlights, batteries and knives become vital. But, the real key to long-term survival is other people.
Surviving groups carry the last remnants of human technology, connecting with simple devices: walkie-talkies, recovered ham radios, and old telegraph lines.
SIX TO SEVEN MONTHS AFTER CONTACT Survivors must fight aliens with low tech guerrilla tactics and small-scale explosives. The alien forces have ventured too far from home to rely on reinforcements, meaning every lost unit won’t be replaced – a critical weakness.
With bacteria and disease rampant among survivors deprived of antibiotics and other medicine, humans are provided with another weapon. Living germ warfare units prepare to be harvested – to spread their deadly agent among the invaders.
Now imagine 20 years after the Invasion whats left of the Human Race?
Lisa Kretz who is the Assistant Professor of Philosophy and a Social Responsibility Fellow at the University of Evansville, Indiana has a great article with a possible scenario:
The Allegory of the Alien Invasion
The first ships landed twenty years ago. The aliens have been increasing their presence exponentially since then. What we call the A.E. (Alien Era) is marked by alien dominance both in terms of the power they exert over us and in their numbers. They now number over ten billion – a population even larger than humanity, hitherto the dominant species.
There are hardly any free humans anymore. You see, these aliens like the taste of our flesh disproportionately more than that of other animals on our planet, so they pen us up and are selecting the most docile and muscular of us to breed. Women are kept pregnant so that they can be milked. Not only do the aliens like human milk, but when they saw what we did with veal calves, they adopted the same behavior, keeping children confined and anemic so that their flesh would become pale and tender.
The aliens are like us in many regards. Physiologically they appear almost mammalian in some senses: they have two eyes, dark fur, a vertebrate structure, and they bleed (blue). They also seem to respond to pain in ways similar to us, giving evidence such as grimacing, screaming – what an awful noise that is – and avoiding the source of pain. They have a language we have not been able to decipher, and sometimes their interactions make it evident that they have telepathic capacities. They have a body language similar to ours, but they refuse to recognize this similarity, and they fail to understand all our attempts at communication. In fact they give no consideration to our social relations, our family times, our romantic desires… we are here to serve their needs. They’ve penned us up in such a way that we can’t even take our own lives to end the pain.
There are also human game reserves where the aliens like to let groups of people roam ‘wild’ within large ‘natural landscapes’ lined by electrified fences. Here we breed and form family units, and they come and pick us off with their lasers during hunting season to ensure we don’t over consume resources. It’s taken to be a demonstration of their prowess to be able to shoot, gut and stuff a human. Since the most impressive specimens are the strongest, the fastest and the smartest – the leaders – those are the ones the alien hunters tend to kill and mount for show. As a result, natural selection is no longer helping our ability to survive in the long term. The fact that the aliens think these bigger pens facilitate our natural species growth is ludicrous.
We know that some of the aliens live off vegetables alone. The aliens are omnivores, and some of them choose not to eat humans. We aren’t sure precisely why. It seems that some of them are partial to treating domesticated humans – that is, the aliens’ pets – well, and so a number of them just refuse to eat humans. Some domesticated humans report having gone with their owners to rallies of angry aliens marching the streets with pictures of factory-farmed humans on placards. Some of the aliens even cry purple alien tears when they look at the pictures. They hold their domestic humans close to their huge alien bodies with their alien arms.
We know they think they’re better than us because they have that telepathic language going for them, and so they find us comparatively mentally slow and brutish. So I’m guessing they generally take the evidence they found of human treatment of ‘lesser species’ as a justification for doing the same sort of thing to us; in fact, it seems they’ve adapted a lot of our technologies used for slaughtering and imprisoning non-human animals to the slaughtering and imprisoning of humans. What I wish is that they all could see it from our perspective, just for a moment. They don’t need to eat us, and if they were in our shoes – if a more dominant, larger population of different aliens touched down on Earth who liked the taste of their flesh, their pregnant females’ milk, their fetuses, and their babies – they’d also wish that dominant species would act with care, not cruelty. Just because we don’t have the capacity to speak their language, and aren’t as intelligent and powerful as they are, doesn’t mean that it’s right for them to do whatever they want with us. It seems one thing humans have that they don’t have is an understanding and valuing of moral behavior. But, I guess, truth be told, when we were dominant, we didn’t have that either.

Yes, this is just one theory or scenario. Military’s in every country run exercises and have multiple contingency plans for every possible scenario for invasions and for invading another country. But what many may not be aware of they also have plans for Alien invasions.
Just this year Israel the IAF’s Ofek cyber unit recently held a training exercise against aliens, in a simulation designed to push cadets to guard the cyber information more tightly then they would normally. The exercise had the recruits hack an “alien” computing system, in order to uncover the loopholes in the software. http://www.timesofisrael.com/idf-soldiers-train-for-ufo-hack-attack/
Many have speculated on the ways in which a friendly civilization might interact with humankind. a highly advanced civilization might teach humanity such things as a physical theory of everything, how to use zero-point energy, or how to travel faster than light.
A friendly civilization could help humanity in many ways:
1) Intervention to avert catastrophe: this would involve occasional limited intervention to stop events that could destroy human civilization completely, such as nuclear war or asteroid impact.
2) Advice and action with consent: under this approach, the extraterrestrials would be more closely involved in terrestrial affairs, advising world leaders and acting with their consent to protect against danger.
3) Forcible corrective action: the extraterrestrials could require humanity to reduce major risks against its will, intending to help humans advance to the next stage of civilization.
Acting only with consent to be a more likely choice than the forceful option. While coercive aid may be possible, and advanced extraterrestrials would recognize their own practices as superior to those of humanity, it may be unlikely that this method would be used in cultural cooperation.
Instruction of a civilization in its “technological adolescence”, such as humanity, would probably focus on morality and ethics rather than on science and technology, to ensure that the civilization did not destroy itself with technology it was not yet ready to use and the technology it already has.
A joint effort between NASA and Pennsylvania State University, answered the question ‘Would Contact With Extraterrestrials Benefit Or Harm Humanity?’
In the best case scenarios put forward, the scientists claim that mankind could swap information to overcome hunger, poverty and disease and more. if ET’s are significantly more advanced than humanity, then the outcome of contact may depend primarily on ETI desires. However, this leaves open speculation as to the specific desires of ET and raises the question of what ethical framework they follow. Much can be said about ETI ethics. Here we focus on one key aspect: selfishness vs. universalism. In rough terms, a selfish ET is one that desires to maximize its own self-interest, whereas a universalist ET is one that desires to maximize the interests of everyone, regardless of which civilization they are part of.
An initial scenario of cooperative ET involves friendly and informative communication between our respective civilizations. Assuming ET are sufficiently interested in humanity (which is not guaranteed, given that they would likely be much more advanced), they may choose to maintain communication at length to discuss mathematics, physics, and chemistry and to learn more about Earth life.
In a more remarkable and unlikely case, we may learn that ET occupy some region of space where different or unknown physical principles apply, which would certainly be a unique discovery for humanity. Thus through such a conversation we may come to acquire a deeper understanding of mathematics or science, and we may also discover specifics about the ET home world or ET biology.
Other factors that would be affected including Religion, and our hierarchy on the Planet and the Universe,..One thing is for sure,…It would change everything!!!
Harvard Psychiatrist On Alien Abductions/Contact: “Yes, It’s Both Literally & Physically Happening.”
Harvard Psychiatrist On Alien Abductions/Contact: “Yes, It’s Both Literally & Physically Happening.”
“Yes, it’s both. It’s both literally, physically happening to a degree; and it’s also some kind of psychological, spiritual experience occurring and originating perhaps in another dimension. And so the phenomenon stretches us, or it asks us to stretch to open to realities that are not simply the literal physical world, but to extend to the possibility that there are other unseen realities from which our consciousness, our, if you will, learning processes over the past several hundred years have closed us off.”– John Mack(source)
John Mack was a Harvard professor, psychiatrist, and Pulitzer Prize recipient. He, like many other academics, became very interested in the alien abduction phenomenon. One can see how this sparked his interest; after all, he was a professor of psychiatry. If you told a psychiatrist you’d had contact with beings from another world, you’d probably be handed a diagnosis of schizophrenia or psychosis along with a handful of medication. This is a disturbing thought, given the tremendous amount of evidence that’s now available to suggest that people are actually having legitimate experiences with extraterrestrial beings, or at the very least, are being completely genuine in their accounts. That’s not to say that some people do not suffer from hallucinations, but there are a lot of people out there who are actually having real experiences as well. John Mack was well aware of this evidence, and this is why he is one of the key pioneers of abduction research.
“There is abundant evidence that we are being contacted, that civilizations have been visiting us for a very long time.” – Former NASA Astronaut and Princeton Physics Professor (source)
Before you continue, it’s important to note that Mack was well aware of the UFO phenomenon, which has been disclosed by dozens of governments around the world by high level officials and documents. You can see some of those documents and statements in articles that are heavily sourced HERE and HERE.
“Just how literally to take this, is one of the most interesting and complex aspects of this. And I want to walk through that as clearly as I can. There are aspects of this which I believe we are justified in taking quite literally. That is, UFOs are in fact observed, filmed on camera at the same time that people are having their abduction experiences.” – John Mack(source)

As a medical professional, Mack’s first priority was the health of his patients. For the most part he considered them to be normal and healthy people who had experienced something mysterious.
“In fact, he considered it remarkable that, despite the obvious trauma they had undergone, most of these people were not medically or psychiatrically disturbed.” – Richard Dolan (1)
Mack had personally interviewed hundreds of supposed abductees, which became the focal point of his book Abduction, published in 1994. One of the most interesting cases came from a supposed encounter with over sixty schoolchildren in the town of Ruwa, Zimbabwe, on September 16th 1994. The children claim to have seen multiple hovering objects that resembled what we would describe as spaceships. All sixty of these school children described and offered drawings of these events with remarkable consistency.
We published an article a few months ago that goes more in depth on that specific case with pictures, interviews, and more. You can read that article HERE. You can view him interviewing the children HERE.
“They describe these events like a person talks about something that has happened to them. I can tell that these are people of sound mind telling me something…” (source)
Through his work, Mack observed most abductees express how they had gained a greater spiritual awareness, or spiritual-type insights, as a result of their experience. He alluded to the idea that contact between human and non human extraterrestrial intelligence could in fact have positive outcomes. He found many commonalities among these reports, and believed people were being completely genuine about what they had experienced.
Another one of these similarities was telepathic communication between aliens and abductees, in which he drew the conclusion that this type of communication is part of altering human consciousness. For example, a lot of this type of telepathic communication (like the case mentioned above in Zimbabwe) has involved implanting images of environmental disasters, earthquakes, or other major catastrophes. As a result, many abductees have pursued humanitarian paths, trying to shift the direction in which our planet currently seems to be heading. (Realted CE Article: Alarming Study: Our Time To Avoid Dramatic Consequences Is Rapidly Disappearing)
Another common experience that supposed abductees describe, which Mack outlines in his book, is the process known as hybridization:
“Scott, one of the subjects in Mack’s book, ‘Abduction,’ had been a skeptic on the matter of extraterrestrials, but then was humiliated to recall how beings had laid him on a table and used various wires to stimulate sexual arousal and ejaculation. In his words, all of this was in order to ‘make babies.’ He felt violated and angry that the beings were controlling his memories and ‘messing with his head.’ On another occasion, he was shown cylinders with tiny babies, presumably from his sperm. He was also taken to an underground facility, where he saw that the alien beings were something like an extended family to him, in the sense that they knew everything about him. Indeed, they knew more about him than any human family would have known. Scott learned, somehow, that these beings were in the process of changing themselves physically so that they could breath on Earth. This is a key part of the hybridization process, he said.” (1) One important factor about Mack was the fact that, although some abduction experiences have been extremely traumatic for some people, and even cruel at times, for him there was still an element of spiritual transformation. Moreover, even if we perceive something to be cruel, it may be borne of good intentions. This view is in contrast to that of many other abductee researchers, and it’s why Mack used the term “experiencer” instead of “abductee.”
Keep in mind, people have reported contact with various types of beings, but human-looking beings, as well as the classic “grey” alien type, seem to be the most common.
“There is a—I believe, a gradation of experiences and that go from the most literal physical kinds of hurts, wounds, person removed, spacecraft that can be photographed, to experiences which are more psychological, spiritual, involve the extension of consciousness. The difficulty for our society and for our mentality is, we have a kind of either/or mentality. It’s either, literally physical; or it’s in the spiritual other realm, the unseen realm. What we seem to have no place for—or we have lost the place for—are phenomena that can begin in the unseen realm, and cross over and manifest and show up in our literal physical world.” – John Mack (source)
With the above quote, it’s fitting to leave you with this video from the Citizens Hearing on Disclosure that took place in May of 2013. It was held at the National Press Club in Washington, DC where military/agency/political personnel shared witness testimony about the UFO/extraterrestrial phenomenon. Also included were statements from a number of academics, researchers, and activists. They gave their testimony to several former members of the United States Congress.
It’s a clip of Dr. Roger Leir, who was a doctor of podiatric medicine, and arguably the best known individual with regards to extracting alleged alien implants. He has performed more than fifteen surgeries that removed sixteen separate distinct objects. These objects have been investigated by several prestigious laboratories, including Los Alamos National Laboratories, New Mexico Tech, and many others. Unfortunately, he passed away in March 2014, but his legacy lives on.
“There is a serious possibility that we are being visited and have been visited for many years by people from outer space, by other civilizations. Who they are, where they are from, and what they want should be the subject of rigorous scientific investigation and not be the subject of ‘rubishing’ by tabloid newspapers.” (source) – Lord Admiral Hill-Norton, Former Chief of Defence Staff, 5 Star Admiral of the Royal Navy, Chairman of the NATO Military Committee
“There is another way whether it’s wormholes or warping space, there’s got to be a way to generate energy so that you can pull it out of the vacuum, and the fact that they’re here shows us that they found a way.” (source) – Jack Kasher, Ph.D, Professor Emeritus of Physics, University of Nebraska.
Scientists confirm: Advanced alien civilizations possible in 50 galaxies
Scientists confirm: Advanced alien civilizations possible in 50 galaxies
Just imagine the possibilities out there.
Leading Astronomers and Scientists have stated that Advanced alien life is possible in 50 galaxies,, after finding they are emitting unusually high levels of radiation. A team of scientists at Penn State University in the US, has been studying observations from Nasa’s WISE orbiting observatory looking for traces of the huge energy produced by technologies from sophisticated extra-terrestrial races.

Just as Planet Earth sends heat and light deep out into space, researchers say a similar signature would be emitted by other advanced civilisations. And after scouring 100,000 galaxies they have come across 50 which hold promise. “We found about 50 galaxies that have unusually high levels of mid-infrared radiation,” said Roger Griffith, a researcher at Penn State and the lead author of the paper “Our follow-up studies of those galaxies may reveal if the origin of their radiation results from natural astronomical processes, or if it could indicate the presence of a highly advanced civilization.”
After scouring 100,000 galaxies they have come across at least 50 which hold promise. “We found about 50 galaxies that have unusually high levels of mid-infrared radiation,” said Roger Griffith, a researcher at Penn State and the lead author of the paper.

Theoretical physicist Freeman Dyson originally proposed in the 1960s that advanced alien civilizations beyond Earth could be detected by the tell tale evidence of their mid-infrared emissions. It was not until space-based telescopes like the WISE satellite that it became possible to make sensitive measurements of this radiation emitted by objects in space.
“The idea behind our research is that, if an entire galaxy had been colonized by an advanced spacefaring civilization, the energy produced by that civilization’s technologies would be detectable in mid-infrared wavelengths — exactly the radiation that the WISE satellite was designed to detect for other astronomical purposes,” said Dr Jason Wright, an assistant professor of astronomy and astrophysics at the Center for Exoplanets and Habitable Worlds at Penn State University, who conceived of and initiated the research.
“Whether an advanced spacefaring civilization uses the large amounts of energy from its galaxy’s stars to power computers, space flight, communication, or something we can’t yet imagine, fundamental thermodynamics tells us that this energy must be radiated away as heat in the mid-infrared wavelengths.
“This same basic physics causes your computer to radiate heat while it is turned on.
“As we look more carefully at the light from these galaxies,” said Wright, “we should be able to push our sensitivity to alien technology down to much lower levels, and to better distinguish heat resulting from natural astronomical sources from heat produced by advanced technologies. This pilot study is just the beginning.”
Could there be civilisations in our next door neighbour Galaxy ‘Andromeda
The team also found new phenomenon in our very own galaxy, The Milky Way. Among the exciting discoveries are a bright nebula around the nearby star 48 Librae, and a cluster of objects easily detected by WISE in a patch of sky that appears totally black when viewed with telescopes that detect only visible light.
“This cluster is probably a group of very young stars forming inside a previously undiscovered molecular cloud, and the 48 Librae nebula apparently is due to a huge cloud of dust around the star, but both deserve much more careful study,” Matthew Povich, an assistant professor of astronomy at Cal Poly Pomona said.
The research team’s first paper about its Glimpsing Heat from Alien Technologies Survey (G-HAT), is published in the Astrophysical Journal Supplement Series.
Perhaps we are looking for where our Alien Visitor’s are travelling from….
Come on let’s get real the Universe is infested with life out there and we can not rely too much on our present day technology to search out other civilizations…..because let’s be honest even the scientists have stated recently that they don’t really know much about anything in reference to space the final Frontier!
This is an exciting discovery and who knows what advanced civilizations lie out there in an infinite Universe!
But one things for sure, if Aliens out there are far more advanced than us then they WILL know where we are in space and probably have for a very long time!
Perhaps we are like a sight seeing holiday for Aliens out there?!…. (kind of a U.I.P joke)
Supreme court forces German parliament to release expertise on UFOs
Supreme court forces German parliament to release expertise on UFOs
The building of the Federal Administrative Supreme Court of Germany in Leipzig.

Leipzig (Germany) – After years of law suits, the Federal Administrative Supreme court of Germany forces the administration of the German Parliament – the Bundestag – to release and give public access to an expertise on „UFOs, the search for extraterrestrial intelligences and Germanys implementation UN-Resolution A/33/426″ (that asked its member states to conduct official research into UFOs) compiled by the parliamentary „Scientifical Service“. So far the Bundestag not only denied public access to this document but also fought and intensive and so far successful legal dispute against its publication. The new court sentence is a big step not only for German UFO-research and disclosure but also for the freedom of information in general.
The function „Scientifical Services“ is „to supply the members of parliaments with factual information, analysis and expertise comments of in their political work in the parliament and their constituencies“. Therefore on should assume that those compiled expertise would be open for public access as well. But that was not so until the recent verdict. It was up to the administration of the Bundestag to release them – or to restrict access to it.
In 2010 the German Exopolitic initiative „Exopolitic.org“ lead by Robert Fleischer learnt of an expertise by the service on „UFOs, the search for extraterrestrial intelligences and Germanys implementation UN-Resolution A/33/426″, that suggested to its member states to conduct official research into UFOs. While several journalists got hold of copies the paper, it was not legal to publish it in its full content. Frank Reitemeyer then asked to view the expertise but his access was denied by the administration of the Bundestag – so he went to court. When he was granted that permission in the first juristically instance, the Bundestag administration successfully appealed on points of law. Since then the lawsuit went through all instances and the Bundestag administration even asked a renowned a big law firm to compile a legal opinion (which under normal conditions costs about 50.000 Euro, as some legal experts estimate).
While the latest and final decisions by the supreme administrative court (Bundesverfassungsgericht) is a big step for the freedom of information, the now released „UFO expertise“ by its Scientifical Service should not be confused with secret UFO-files of research and investigation into UFOs by official German offices, ministries or even the military. It is an informational summary of known facts on UFOs, the search for extraterrestrial intelligences (SETI) and the UN-Resolution A/33/426.
However there are some small ufological gems hidden within this expertise: Most important is the expertise authors conclusion that „as so many other countries, neighboring and allied state did and in parts still do conduct official research programs into UFOs (like France, the USA, UK or Canada…) it should be assumed that the German government and its bodies and institutions should also have official interest into the phenomenon.“ While just a short sentence this little conclusion is of great importance as it contradicts the decade long language regime that repeatedly claimed that the German government and its institutions have no interest in the topic and do not conduct any research or collection of UFO sightings and research. The last time this view was stated by the then German Minister of the Interior and today’s Minister of Finances Dr. Wolfgang Schäuble in 2008.
That the opposite is in fact the case has been shown my the work on many German UFO-researchers and journalists before who uncovered secret documents that demonstrate that – of course – also German official bodies not only have an interest but also conducted – and most likely still conduct – investigation into unidentified flying objects. The last time this has happened was when the frontier-science newsblog „grenzwissenschaft-aktuell“ (www.GreWi.de) uncovered a complete file by the German foreign secret intelligence agency „BND“.
Voyager dans le temps, l’un des plus grands rêves de l’homme, pourrait-il un jour devenir réalité? Des physiciens ont récemment simuler un tel voyage… dans le monde de l’infiniment petit. Une équipe de chercheurs australiens de l’Université du Queensland étudiant le comportement des particules de lumière, ont simulé un voyage dans le temps avec un photon (une particule de lumière). Dans cette recherche publiée dans Nature Communications, les physiciens ont en fait simuler le déplacement d’un photon dans une « boucle d’espace-temps ». Un récit de science-fiction? Pas bien loin…
Sur les traces d’Einstein.
Bien qu’il est amusant de réfléchir au voyage dans le temps, les scientifiques eux, prennent ce sujet au sérieux. Il faut savoir qu’avant la théorie de la relativité d’Albert Einstein, on pensait que le temps était absolu et universel, c’est-à-dire le même pour tous, peu importe les circonstances. Dans sa théorie de la relativité restreinte, Einstein explique que l’intervalle de temps entre deux événements dépend de la façon dont l’observateur évolue. Par exemple, deux observateurs dont les vitesses diffèrent ne ressentent pas les mêmes durées entre deux événements.
Pour expliquer ce phénomène, prenons le paradoxe des jumeaux. Imaginez des jumeaux, Marc et Annie. Annie monte à bord d’une fusée et voyage à très grande vitesse jusqu’à une étoile, tandis que Marc reste sur Terre. Pour Annie, la grande vitesse a laquelle elle a voyagé, fait en sorte qu’une seule année s’est écoulée, tandis que neuf ans se sont écoulés pour son frère Marc. Ainsi, les jumeaux n’ont plus le même âge et on peut dire qu’Annie a fait un saut dans le futur.
Ainsi, en suivant la théorie de la relativité d’Einstein, il est possible d’envisager le voyage dans le temps, ou plutôt, un retour dans le passé en suivant un « chemin d’espace-temps » qui se replie et revient à son point de départ dans l’espace, mais à une époque antérieure. Les physiciens appellent ces chemins, ou boucles temporelles, des « courbes de genre temps fermées » (CTC).

Les chercheurs expliquent avoir mené deux versions de l’expérience. Dans la première version, ils ont observé ce qui pourrait arriver si un photon voyageait à travers un trou de ver (un genre de raccourci à travers l’espace-temps) vers le passé, puis interagissait avec une ancienne version de lui-même. Dans le second cas, les chercheurs ont tenté d’observer ce qui pourrait se produire si un photon voyageait à travers l’espace-temps normal, mais interagissait avec un autre photon emprisonné à l’intérieur d’une boucle temporelle.
Un avenir prometteur?
Les physiciens sont parvenus à démontrer que le voyage dans le temps, au plan théorique en physique quantique et dans le monde de l’infiniment petit, est possible. Évidemment, il faudra attendre encore de nombreuses années avant de savoir si des atomes entiers et des objets complexes peuvent en faire autant.
Si partir à la rencontre de nos ancêtres n’est pas pour demain, notre descendance lointaine en aura peut-être l’occasion…
Voici une vidéo récente appuyant une étude sur les structures de certains temples antiques de Cuzco, principalement les plus anciens dont quelques pierres restaient dans les fondations des actuelles constructions. Toutes ces pierres montrent des découpes, des trous et même des percées longues en formes de tuyaux à travers ces pierres. Des restes de traces de crochets en métal (traces de cuivre) servant à maintenir les blocs entre eux sont encore visibles, et on devine des traces d'entretoises (en métal ?) soutenant probablement des volets en bois, rideaux, etc... Tout le métal a disparu.

La question posée par beaucoup d'internautes à ce sujet est : en quoi sont faites les pierres ? Et n'est-il pas possible que ces pierres soient concernées par les découvertes du français, Mr Davidovits, sur l'utilisation de pierre artificielle pour le revêtement de certaines anciennes pyramides en Egypte ? Les archéologues semblent fermes : " L'examen pétrographique des matériaux ont permis de retrouver les carrières correspondantes à 100 et même 300 kilomètres de là. Ce qui oblige à admettre que des monolithes dont certains pèsent plus de 100 tonnes furent transportés sur des distances considérables à travers des terrains généralement accidentés. " Ces pierres proviennent donc bien de carrières identifiées de granit ou de basaltes, et on n'a jamais découvert quels outils ont bien pu faire ces ouvrages parmi les plus anciens (sans compter ailleurs, en Colombie et Equateur notamment), probablement détruits ou cachés depuis les conquistadors...

After 2000 years the Star of Bethlehem graces the night sky again on June 30, 2015
Star of Bethlehem graces the night sky again on June 30, 2015
Get ready for the most exciting sky event of 2015! After an absence of roughly 2000 years "The Star of Bethlehem" graces the evening sky again from June 27th through July 4th.
Venus and Jupiter are the brightest celestial objects after the Sun and Moon. The two planets spend eight evenings within 2° of each other from June 27th through July 4th. The closest visible conjunction of Venus and Jupiter is on June 30, 2015.
Astronomers refer to a close celestial pair-up like this as a conjunction. "Planetary conjunctions have no effect on Earth or human affairs," notes Sky and Telescope Senior Editor Alan MacRobert, "except for one: they can lift our attention away from our own littleworld into the enormous things beyond. A spectacular conjunction like this often gets people started in the hobby. Once you start, there's no end to how far you can go."
What Was The Star of Bethlehem?
Many Christians see the star as a miraculous sign to mark the birth of the Christ (or messiah). Some theologians claimed that the star fulfilled a prophecy, known as the Star Prophecy. Astronomers have made several attempts to link the star to unusual astronomical events, such as a conjunction of Venus and Jupiter, a comet or a supernova.
The truth is, we don't know the answer, and in fact, no one else does either, in spite of what you might hear.
If there was a clear-cut answer to this question, everyone would already know the answer and wouldn't have to ask.
Some scholars say that the Star of Bethlehem must have been a supernatural event, not a natural occurrence of astronomy.
Indeed, perhaps this is a mystery that modern science can never truly unravel.

Enigmatic symbols and carvings in man-made cave in England confound experts
Enigmatic symbols and carvings in man-made cave in England confound experts
The Royston Cave is an artificial cave in Hertfordshire, England. It is not known who created the cave or what it was used for, but there has been much speculation. Some believe that it was used by the Knights Templar. Others believe it may have been an Augustinian store mine. Another theory is that it was a Neolithic flint mine. None of these theories have been substantiated, and the origin of the Royston Cave remains a mystery.
Royston cave was discovered in August 1742 in Royston. A worker was digging holes to build footing for a new bench at a market. He discovered a millstone while he was digging, and when he dug around to remove it, he found the shaft leading to the cave. When the cave was discovered, it was half-filled with dirt and rock. Efforts were made to remove the dirt and rock, which was subsequently discarded. Some believed that treasure would be found within Royston cave. However, removal of the dirt did not reveal any treasure. There were sculptures and carvings found within. It is worth noting that had the soil not been discarded, today’s technology could have allowed for a soil analysis.

The sculptures found within are believed to be about 800 years old. It is likely that the sculptures were originally colored, although due to the passage of time only very small traces of color remain visible. The images are mostly religious, depicting St. Catherine, the Holy Family, the Crucifixion, St. Lawrence holding the gridiron on which he was martyred, and a figure holding a sword who could either be St. George, or St. Michael. Holes located beneath the sculptures appear to have held candles or lamps which would have lit the carvings and sculptures.

One of the main theories as to the origin of Royston cave is that it was used by the Knights Templar prior to their dissolution by Pope Clement V in 1312. Some believe that the cave had been split into two levels using a wooden floor. Figures near a damaged section of the cave depict two knights riding a single horse, which may be the remains of a Templar symbol. Architectural historian Nikolaus Pevsner has written that the date of the carvings "is hard to guess. They have been called Anglo-Saxon, but are more probably of various dates between the C14 and C17 (the work of unskilled men)."

Another theory is that Royston cave was used as an Augustinian store house. As their name implies, the Augustinians were an Order created by St Augustine, Bishop of Hippo, in Africa. Founded in 1061 AD they first came into England in the reign of Henry I. From the 12th century, Royston in Hertfordshire was a center of monastic life and the Augustinian priory continued without break there for nearly 400 years. It has been said that local Augustinian monks used Royston cave as a cool storage space for their produce and as a chapel.
One theory suggests Augustinian monks used Royston cave as a storehouse. (Wikimedia Commons)
Finally, some speculate it may have been used as a Neolithic flint mine as early as 3,000 BC, where flint would have been gathered for making axes and other tools. However, the chalk in this area only provides small flint nodules, generally unsuitable for axe making, so this may cast some doubt on this theory.
To this date there remains much mystery as to who created Royston cave and for what purpose. It is always possible that whichever group originally created the cave may have abandoned it at some point, allowing it to be used by another group. The mystery surrounding the cave and the sculptures within makes the cave an interesting location for visitors who would like to speculate as to the origins of this ancient wonder.
Royston cave has required regular maintenance and restoration, as it was discovered that insect larvae and worms were damaging the walls and structure of the cave. By August 2014, work to prevent such damage was deemed successful. Rather than using insecticides, the preservation workers removed some of the earth, thereby eliminating the worms’ food supply. Hopefully subsequent repair work to pipes to avoid flooding, and other work to prevent vibration damage from the traffic above, will help to preserve the cave into the future.

It’s a dream scenario for conspiracy theorists: First, mysterious lights are spotted ‘leaving’ Earth, and then Nasa cuts a video stream from the International Space Station (ISS) showing them.
Of course, there must only be one rational explanation - Nasa was trying their best to prevent us knowing about a mysterious alien race.
Well, not quite. The most likely explanation is much more mundane, with the sudden blackout caused by either a camera glitch or a fragment of space debris.
Scroll down for video
Washington-based Nasa cut away from a live ISS stream the other day. The agency often cuts away to change cameras or when it's out of range. But some conspiracy theorists claimed to have seen UFOs in the video. And they claim Nasa ended the stream to prevent people seeing the 'aliens'. The object is seen in the red ring
The video is a short clip taken from Nasa’s ISS live stream, which shows the views from cameras on the space station.
Created by ‘Mister Enigma’ on YouTube, the video advises viewers to watch in full
Watching the video, a small speck of light can be seen very faintly in the distance rising from the atmosphere.
The feed from Nasa then cuts out, with the message: ‘Please stand by.
‘The High Definition Earth Viewing experiment is either switching cameras, or we are experiencing a temporary loss of signal with the International Space Station.’
The video then replays the footage but zooms in, showing what seem to be two rotating dots rising from the atmosphere.
Watching the video, a small speck of light can be seen very faintly in the distance rising from the atmosphere. The video then replays the footage but zooms in, showing what seem to be two rotating dots rising from the atmosphere, shown here
But before proclaiming that humanity has finally made first contact with aliens, it’s probably worth pointing out that there are several more rational explanations.
First, the quality of the video is extremely low. The two specks of light could simply be a glitch in the footage, or a glint of sunlight.
It could also be some space debris orbiting Earth, or even a satellite.
And the timing of Nasa switching off the video, while unfortunate, is certainly not on purpose; Nasa often switches cameras or temporarily turns off the feed.
This can be for a number of reasons, such as the station moving out of range of ground stations.
It’s also highly unlikely that Nasa monitors this feed constantly, as it runs almost around the clock seven days a week, apart from these brief stops.
'I'm a bit suspicious of this video, it could be of "real" objects out there or some form of camera trickery,' Nigel Watson, author of the UFO Investigations Manual, told MailOnline.
'UFO spotters love to see any object or flick of light out there as proof that extraterrestrial craft are monitoring our planet, and are keeping an eye on the ISS at a distance.
'Though if they are piloted by aliens using advanced technology wouldn't they have perfected the means to hide themselves completely from our cameras?'
THE INTERNATIONAL SPACE STATION IN NUMBERS
Construction of the ISS began on 20 November 1998. It supports a crew of up to six, with crews typically split into groups of three.
The station orbits at a height of about 255 miles (410km). It has a total mass of about 990,000 pounds (450,000kg) and has living space roughly equivalent to a five-bedroom house.
It completes an orbit of Earth every 92.91 minutes and moves at 17,100 miles (27,600km) per hour.
It has now been in space for more than 6,000 days, during which time it has completed more than 92,500 orbits of Earth, and has been continuously occupied for more than 14 years.
Shown is the screen Nasa displays when it is switching cameras, or when the ISS is out of range
This latest UFO claim follows another last week, with conspiracy theorists saying they had found a ‘pyramid’ on Mars.
Citing the 'near-perfect design and shape', they argue the 'pyramid' is evidence that an ancient civilisation once lived on the red planet.
While the pyramid is believed to be 'car-sized', alien-hunters say it may be just the tip of a much larger structure buried beneath.
YouTube channel ParanormalCrucible used video footage taken by Nasa's Curiosity Rover on 7 May to back up its claims.
'None of the Curiosity Rover's subsequent photos taken at 20 to 30 sec intervals in the following few minutes and the subsequent photos hours later, included the object,' wrote UFO site Exopolitics.
The pyramid, though, is almost certainly just a chance shaping of a rock on the red planet that happens to look vaguely similar to something familiar to us on Earth.
Something is going to happen on June 30th that hasn’t happened in over 2,000 years
Something is going to happen on June 30th that hasn’t happened in over 2,000 years
Jupiter and Venus will merge into a dazzling ”super-star” in the Western horizon by the end of June, NASA says.
The conjunction of the two planets has been building during the month of June and will culminate in a spectacular display on June 30. “Every night in June, the separation between Venus and Jupiter will visibly shrink,” says NASA.
A conjunction is when two or more objects appear very close together on the sky.
On the evening of June 30, Venus and Jupiter will appear in the sky just a third of a degree apart. “That’s less than the diameter of a full Moon. You’ll be able to hide the pair not just behind the palm of your outstretched hand, but behind your little pinky finger,” NASA enthuses.
Sky & Telescope suggests that a similar rare conjunction of Venus and Jupiter may have been what’s been called the ”Star of Bethlehem” in 3-2 BC.
While the conjunction is certainly visible with the naked eye, Sky and Telescope says viewing it with a telescope or binoculars will offer a different perspective: “Both planets will crowd into same telescopic field of view, Venus appearing as a fat crescent and round Jupiter accompanied by its four large moons. The two planets will appear nearly as the same size, but Jupiter, though much larger in reality, is much farther away…. Their globes will contrast dramatically in brightness, with Venus’s crescent appearing dazzling white compared to Jupiter’s duller, striped cloud deck.”
Pat Hartigan, an astronomer at Rice University, says the conjunction on June 30 is the best one we will have for over a decade, rivaled only by one on March 1, 2023, which will not be not quite as close.
So where and when should we look for it? Look to the west-northwest as soon as it gets dark, says Dr. Hartigan. ”After about two hours for most latitudes the objects will become difficult to observe as they begin to set. They are bright. You might mistake them for airplanes.”
Is this a significant astronomical event? Not really. ”These planetary groupings in the sky have no effect on Earth or human affairs – except for one,” says Alan MacRobert at Sky & Telescope. ”They can lift our attention away from our own little world into the enormous things beyond. That’s what amateur astronomers do all the time.”
Quantum mechanics, though firmly tested, is so weird and anti-intuitive that famed physicist Richard Feynman once remarked, “I think I can safely say that nobody understands quantum mechanics.” Attempts to explain some of the bizarre consequences of quantum theory have led to some mind-bending ideas, such as the Copenhagen interpretation and the many-worlds interpretation.
Now there’s a new theory on the block, called the “many interacting worlds” hypothesis (MIW), and the idea is just as profound as it sounds. The theory suggests not only that parallel worlds exist, but that they interact with our world on the quantum level and are thus detectable. Though still speculative, the theory may help to finally explain some of the bizarre consequences inherent in quantum mechanics, reports RT.com.
The theory is a spinoff of the many-worlds interpretation in quantum mechanics — an idea that posits that all possible alternative histories and futures are real, each representing an actual, though parallel, world. One problem with the many-worlds interpretation, however, has been that it is fundamentally untestable, since observations can only be made in our world. Happenings in these proposed “parallel” worlds can thus only be imagined.
MIW, however, says otherwise. It suggests that parallel worlds can interact on the quantum level, and in fact that they do.
“The idea of parallel universes in quantum mechanics has been around since 1957,” explained Howard Wiseman, a physicist at Griffith University in Brisbane, Australia, and one of the physicists to come up with MIW. ”In the well-known ‘Many-Worlds Interpretation’, each universe branches into a bunch of new universes every time a quantum measurement is made. All possibilities are therefore realised – in some universes the dinosaur-killing asteroid missed Earth. In others, Australia was colonised by the Portuguese.”
“But critics question the reality of these other universes, since they do not influence our universe at all,” he added. “On this score, our “Many Interacting Worlds” approach is completely different, as its name implies.”……
During an overnight patrol, myself and close to 20 other Marines came close to calling a security alert on an object, which was flying over restricted area. A mobile patrol unit of (2) Marines first spotted the object ejecting what looked like sparks into the sky. The mobile unit immediately reported the sighting as a “Rocket Ship” to the Alarm Control Center (ACC) via coded radio. The ACC responded to the mobile unit: “Be advised, at ease on the net”, asking the mobile unit to stop fooling around on the radio.
The mobile unit immediately repeated the aforementioned sighting of a “rocket ship” and included the location of the sighting. I was also part of a mobile patrol unit and had also witnessed the earlier sighting. I however, didn’t witness the object as a “rocket ship”, because rockets leave a trail of smoke, flames, sound, and move at high speeds. This particular object made little to NO sound. I could hear the faint crackling of the sparks, as the object slowly moved south. The sparks had the same duration and look of a common July 4th sparkler, just on a much larger scale. Once I made a positive ID on (the sighting) and not necessarily the craft, I followed up with a call to the ACC corroborating the initial call from the other mobile patrol unit. I was instructed to contact the ACC via landline to keep all chatter off of the radio. I stopped at an observation tower to call the ACC. I described everything we are witnessing and also asked instructions, as the craft was in a no-fly zone and over a nuclear warhead limited area. The sergeant of the guard ordered us to standby as he called the installation commander and/or the Navy. By this time, the object wasn’t ejecting sparks, nor was it moving. It had changed direction and moved east just a bit and was stationary. The sparks had stopped flickering and something else was being ejected from the craft, but it was falling straight down. The best way I can describe the substance falling from the object: Plasma white molten lava. It appeared to fall all the way to the ground, but with the amount and density of the trees, I couldn’t tell for certain.
ALSO…. the sighting seemed to change my perception on the scales of things. It seemed as if the white hot plasma was falling faster to the ground, than any earthly object would from that altitude. Example: The object was (my best guess) a few hundred feet in the air, but the white plasma was falling as fast as a water drop from the spout into the sink. It was very weird and made me feel very small. A group of us Marines had gathered on the East end of the limited area to await instructions and maintain observation of the occurrence. The air was electric. Static-like, is the best way I can describe it. No odor, and no sound of the white hot plasma falling through the trees. I thought it was odd, because of the size/amount that was falling. It could’ve been because of how bright the substance appeared to be…making it seem bigger. I have no clue… It was very strange. The object made a noise, but it was more a feeling you can feel in your body… like an ultra LOW frequency hum or buzz. The object was never in clear view. We were able to track it by the sparks/white plasma it ejected and also the large shadow it cast in the cloud cover.
Although common with most UFO sightings, it didn’t display ANY exterior lights whatsoever. We lost sight of the object once the white plasma stopped falling. We heard the low frequency hum for a few minutes afterwards but that stopped as well. Also the air seemed to change as well. I could smell the ocean and it smelled very fresh.
The Navy didn’t respond until the next day. We never fired on the object because we couldn’t identify it and it didn’t seem to pose any immediate threat. The Navy stated the following day, they were having an airshow, but I never believed it because of the time of the sighting and we are usually notified of any aircraft flying close to our location. It is standard SOP for Marines to list all occurrences into a logbook. Some did and some didn’t. I was one of the Marines that DID. All logbooks are turned in to the Platoon commanders, after the logbook is filled. That was the only evidence detailing the event. That same week, there was an aurora borealis which lasted into sunrise. It was a weird week. I decided to come forward about this sighting, as it may add some confirmation to someone else’s sighting. I’m sorry I couldn’t remember the exact date, but I never witnessed but ONE aurora borealis in 1994. The sighting happened that same week.
UFO Mysterious Fleet Hovering In the Sky, Recorded on Camera
UFO Mysterious Fleet Hovering In the Sky, Recorded on Camera
Unusual lights, odd flying saucers, triangle shaped objects and figure of aliens are one of the most common sighting spotted by different people all over the world. In a recent report, strange lights hovering in the sky have been recorded by a baffled man. When asked, he claimed seeing a strange fleet, which can be identified as a mysterious unidentified flying object. To be specific, he saw a Five ‘double orbed’ lights changing position hovering in the sky in Peru’s central city on June 22. Even though some details about the footage have remained unclear, the video was captured at 5 am according to the filmmaker. The video footage was shared by a website that collects strange videos about the unidentified objects called OVNI.
The footage is being published on June 23, and since the site is shared all over the world, a lot of people can see it. In fact, it attracted attention from social media users. Without a doubt, mysterious and odd objects have viewers appearing enthusiastic about the footage. These observers are very much convinced that it is a proof of alien existence. Due to the number of spectators, the footage has received different comments, such as the question regarding the possible consequence if the object are being flashed by a laser or a flashlight. The commentator further asked if the legs tremble if it is done.
Another person has expressed his gratitude towards the amazing convoys of alien ships caught all around Earth uploaded to a social media account. Earlier this week, a video of a strange ‘Alien’ light shining behind a cloud was baffled by the internet. Despite scientific explanations about the weather phenomenon, lots of viewers remained convinced that the footage is a proof of extra-terrestrial activity.
Without a doubt, thousands of people have already witnessed the strange objects – different shapes, colors, motions, and sizes. Whether it is a mysterious object coming from an alien spaceship or a man-made phenomenon, conclusions cannot be done without profound evidence.
Strange UFO Sighting and Experience in 1665: Fact or Myth?
Strange UFO Sighting and Experience in 1665: Fact or Myth?
There has always been a clash in what we see and what we believe. After all, it is about how people perceive it. People have heard of unidentified flying objects. In fact, a lot of people even claim to have seen such spaceships from the alien world, which some people have never seen. The important question is, do they exist? Or are they just a part of our imagination? Deep research revealed something that proved theexistence of the world. Around 2 pm on April 8, 1665, fishermen anchored near Barhöfft reported seeing mysterious ships in the sky,battling with each other. Once done, a dark object is seen hovering in the sky.
According to the witnesses, they saw a flatrounded plate that appears asan enormous hat of a man. The color is described as the darkening moon hovering over St. Nicolai’s church. Until the evening, it remained stationary. Worried and apprehensive, they didn’t want to look further. In the next days, they experiencedpain and trembling heads and limbs. Erasmus Francisci Francisci gathered several1665 news reports related to the event and concluded that lots of scholarly people have thought about that. But, the “scholarly people” could not distinguish the causes. TheEdgeScience magazine in the June 2015 edition, Martin Shough and Chris Aubeckdetail their investigations.
Was it a Mirage?
The 1665 incident was higher in the sky than a Fata Morgana. Furthermore, there is also no substantial proof that mirage would remain in the evening sinceitcannot remain stable for so long.
Was it a Flock of Birds?
Due to the large differences examined by Aubeck and Shough, a flock of birds cannot be associated with the dark object that stayed until nightfall. For the last question, is there a possibility of the existence of the two unusual phenomena occurred at once? Battling with each other on the first scene and producing mysterious object hovering in the sky?
After UFO Disclosure by UK, Russia, Denmark, Sweden, Uruguay, Chile, Brazil governments in last two years, now New Zealand government finally came forward and publish its own x-files.
Thousands of secret files on New Zealand’s UFO reports are set to be made public, nearly 32 years to the day after our most famous sighting.
The files include every witness account of unidentified flying objects reported to authorities since the early 1950s, including the 1978 Kaikoura mystery.
They had been held by Archives New Zealand, which was to make them available in February after requests from the public, but the Defence Force stepped in, saying it needed to remove personal identification to comply with the Privacy Act.
The Defence Force promised to release the files by the end of this year and is due to make them public this week.
More than 2000 pages of files will be issued in 12 volumes. Squadron Leader Kavae Tamariki said the Defence Force would not comment on the files’ content.
“We’ve just been a collection point for the information. We don’t investigate or make reports, we haven’t substantiated anything in them.”
The Defence Force did not have the resources to investigate UFO sightings, Squadron Leader Tamariki said.
The director of research group UFOCUS NZ, Suzanne Hansen, said she had been trying to get hold of the Defence Force files for nearly two years.
“I started lobbying, and at first they said there was no way in the foreseeable future they’d be released. It’s been a long time coming.”
In August last year The Press sought access to the files under the Official Information Act, and was told by the Defence Force the request “would require a substantial amount of collation, research and consultation to identify whether any of that information could be released”, and it was “not in a position to deploy staff to undertake that task”.
It said public files on UFO sightings were available from Archives NZ.
But when access to those files was requested from Archives NZ, it emerged they had been borrowed by the Defence Force.
Ms Hansen said she hoped the files would reveal more detail about some of New Zealand’s most famous cases, including the Kaikoura sighting on December 21, 1978.
Wellington man John Cordy, 77, was in the air traffic control tower on that night and still maintains there was no logical explanation for what happened.
He and his colleague witnessed inexplicable radar readings at a time when no aircraft were cleared to be in the area.
At the same time, crew on an Argosy cargo plane reported strange lights around their aircraft, which tracked them for more than 60 kilometres. Numerous theories were put forward, but Mr Cordy said none fitted the bill. Ad Feedback
“It wasn’t a squid boat, it wasn’t Jupiter, it wasn’t Venus, and it wasn’t harbour lights. What it was I do not know.”
Ms Hansen, who has investigated UFOs for more than 35 years, said she had witnessed numerous “sightings” in her life, the first when she was eight.
“I was living down in Gisborne in the late 70s, early 80s, around the time of the UFO flap — when there’s quite intense activity, a lot of sightings.
“It’s reasonably easy to tell whether something is an aircraft because in New Zealand, and worldwide, there are certain legal configurations of lights, so if they don’t have those characteristics, it’s not identifiable.
“Then you’re mainly looking at movement, whether it’s able to hover, whether it’s moving erratically.”
Scientist In Hiding Declares: Dulce Base Is Run By ALIENS!
Scientist In Hiding Declares: Dulce Base Is Run By ALIENS!
Dulce, New Mexico – is a small quiet little town located about 7,000 feet on the Jicarilla Apache Indian Reservation. The town is home to approximately about 900 people with only one major Hotel and just a few stores.
Dulce is not your typical resort town, far from it in fact and is in no way bustling with activity. However, this small sleepy town harbours a very dark deep, secret hidden way down below the tangled brush of Archuleta Mesa. A secret so deep, that it apparently involves a joint US government-alien bio-genetic laboratory designed to carry out bizarre experiments on humans and animals (yes it does sound pretty sick doesn’t it!).
The Dulce Base is apparently believed to be the largest Reptilian and Grey Alien base in America where there are allegedly conducting experiments including: atomic manipulation, cloning, mind control, animal/human crossbreeding, chip implantation, abduction, and feeding off of humans…a charming place!?
What lies below!?
The video below is a very important watch which contains extraordinary notes taken by a scientist who was commissioned by the government to visit and provide evidence for alien crash sites and observe alien life (the scientist is now in hiding). In the video below the scientist reveals top secret information on the Dulce Base and its inner workings. Please note, that apparently we must warn you, the information is the video is top secret, and just by reading it, it puts a target on your back, people have been killed for sharing this knowledge. So please watch with caution….although I am pretty sure you will all be perfectly safe!
The pictures below were allegedly smuggled out of the base by a Dulce security officer at the time named, Thomas Costello. He and his family are missing & presumed dead by the public….it seems a common theme people vanishing nowadays!!?
Apparently a real image of Human Hybrids being developed
One of the many underground tunnels
Below is a couple of images showing the layout and position of the supposed Alien base at Dulce:
The document below is the alleged result of the actions of a few scientists creating a covert, unauthorized notebook documenting their involvement with an Above Top Secret government program. Government publications and information obtained by the use of public tax monies cannot be subject to copyright. This document is released into the public domain for all citizens of the United States of America……Basically ‘they’ cannot hide this from us!
I would just like to confirm that U.I.P is now actively investigating Dulce and if possible get boots on the ground near the area so that we can record what kind of activity is going on in this part of the world!
There is definitely ‘something’ about this story as I have heard many stories about people getting arrested for getting too near to the cave areas of Dulce. Lets not forget how cruel humans are to other species, so it is very possible that we could (alongside with the Greys) be doing experiments on humans/animals in the underground base……I have also read that the Aliens are now also supposed to of taken over the base……

peter2011 :My condolences ho out to his wife and his family. I had a good contact with Dirk since years and we did cooperated in changing information about the UFO-phenomenom and his permission to publish The UFO Digest Newsletter on this blog. I lost a good colleague and friend too. R.I.P.
Former NASA astronaut Edgar Mitchell was one of six key players involved in the release of a new 'smoking gun' image said to show one of the aliens that died in the crash near Roswell, New Mexico, in 1947.
The picture is now widely believed to have been false or a hoax.
But despite the 'Be Witness' event last week not changing history in the quest for extra terrestrial life as it had suggested it would, Mr Mitchell remains adamant that more than one alien landed at Roswell nearly 70 years ago - and some of them were captured alive.
He said: "The truth about it is that it was real. I was there when the Roswell incident took place. I was on my way to college and had just graduated high school.
"One day, it was in the Roswell Daily Record, which was a newspaper in Roswell, about an alien spacecraft that had crashed, and the next day that it had been denied by the Air Force, saying that it was a weather balloon.
"I believed that and went off to college.

Mitchell told conference he believed this image was of an alien and not a child mummy
"Many years later, after I had been to the moon and came back, I went out to Roswell to give lectures, talk and meet people I knew since I was a kid.
"Many of the people I knew, along with descendants of the people who had been involved in the Roswell incident, told me their stories.”
He said the descendants included the son of an undertaker who provided "coffins for the alien bodies" and the son of a sheriff who "kept traffic away from the crash site".
Mr Mitchell was meant to attend the 6,000-audience conference in Mexico, but actually appeared via video link, saying at 84 he was too old to travel.
He spoke of why the authorities have kept "alien visitations above top secret" during an interview with HighCountry News ahead of another UFO conference this month.
Speaking of the now panned 'alien' image, Mr Mitchell added: "They're certainly not human - looks like what the little greys look like."
Mr Mitchell also said that we don't know what beings are in the Universe because our planet is like a grain of sand on a huge beach.
He was the sixth man to walk on the moon as part of the Apollo 14 mission in 1971.

Mr Mitchell added: "A family friend who was a major in the United States Air Force told me it was all real.
"I got the stories from all of these various people into my head when I came back from the moon, and I then went to the Pentagon and told them my story about that and said, give me your opinion.
"The admiral who I spoke to said, 'I don’t know anything about it, but I’m going to find out.'
"He went out to New Mexico and checked all around, came back and told me, 'Your stories are quite correct and all real.'”
Mr Mitchell also claimed the US government found dead and live aliens on board the crashed craft.
However, they covered up the Roswell incident because they did not know if the 'visits' were hostile and also did not want Soviet Russia discovering about it.
This image on an 'alien autopsy' carried out at Roswell released in 1995 was later proved fake
Roswell now cashes in on its alien notoriety with tourist attractions and a museum
He told how governmental agencies did not know what to do with the alien crashed saucer and its "superior technology" for fear of it getting into Soviet hands.
He said: "The best course of action was to just lie about it, and keep it to themselves. They labeled it 'above top-secret,' and that created the long running iron curtain separating a secret group within the government, and the American public."
He also claimed to have been made aware of "many UFO visits to Earth during his career with NASA" with each covered up.
The ageing former astronaut is scheduled to lecture on the subject at the Contact in the Desert, a UFO-themed conference at the Joshua Tree Retreat Centre, in Joshua Tree, California, at the end of the month.
The Truth is Back Out There! First Pics of The X-Files Revival
The Truth is Back Out There! First Pics of The X-Files Revival
Here's a nice little weekend gift for all of you X-Files fan: Fox has released the first preview pics of the long awaited TV six-part series revival, along with a few teasing details about the first episode, titled "My Struggle," in which Annet Mahendru (The Americans) is Sveta, a woman "who believes she’s regularly abducted by aliens."
Another new character is Joel McHale, who will play Tad O’Malley, "the anchor of a popular conservative Internet news network who becomes an unlikely ally for Mulder" --Conservative, huh? Biting already at the hand who feeds you, Mr. Carter?
As for the old characters we all loved, Mitch Pileggi and William B. Davis are returning as Walter Skinner and The Smoking Man, respectively. Which is a bit odd considering how he's supposed to have been killed in the last episode of the old series; so either the shadowy villain managed to escape, he'll be shown on playback scenes, or Chris Carter will once again play around with the concept of spirits appearing to the characters.
IMO it would've been nice to see Nicholas Lea return as Alex Krycek, too. Maybe on the next season --if there is one?
The search for life beyond Earth has heated up. Here are some of the ways that scientists have been thinking and talking about it.
In recent years, astronomers have become increasingly certain that planets are common in our Milky Way galaxy. It’s possible that every single star we see at night has at least one planet. That would mean a hundred billion planets, at least, in our Milky Way alone. According to a recent study, it’s possible that most stars have planets in their habitable zones, an area around stars within which liquid water – and therefore life as we know it – can exist. How many of those worlds are inhabited by simple or complex life forms? And when will we on Earth discover alien life? Follow the links below to learn more:
Biologists recently measured chemical fingerprints for 137 different microorganism species, in hopes that astronomers will use the colors to recognize life on distant planets. Here are a few of the 137 microorganism samples used in the catalog. Read more about this study. Image via Hegde et al. / MPIA
Microbial life vs. little green men
It would be awesome if, like Jodie Foster’s character in the movie Contact, scientists involved in the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI) suddenly realized that incoming radio signals could have originated only from an intelligent alien civilization. That discovery would be world-shaking, to say the least.
But – since we have absolutely no idea when or if that discovery might occur – ongoing discussions of life beyond Earth among most astronomers today typically focus more simply. When you hear today’s astronomers speak of finding life on other worlds, they’re most often talking about microbial life.
Microbes are single-cell organisms. They’re so tiny that millions can fit into the eye of a needle. They’re Earth’s oldest form of life, dating back more than 3.5 billion years, hundreds of millions of years before the age of dinosaurs. Could there be microbial life on other worlds in our solar system, and if so how close are we to finding it?
It seems that – according to scientists – we’re pretty close.
Earlier this month (June 16, 2015), NASA and university scientists hosted a panel in Washington D.C. to discuss the latest advancements in the search for life, with the focus on habitable planets. Another similar discussion – focused on water in the universe – was held on April 7, 2015, also in Washington D.C. At the April discussion, NASA chief scientist Ellen Stofan made a bold statement when she predicted that we would find “strong indications” of microbial life within a decade and “definite evidence” of it within 20 to 30 years.
At the same time, NASA also released an infographic outlining evidence for or indications of water on a number of worlds in our solar system. Those worlds with possible water include the dwarf planet Ceres, now being orbited by the Dawn spacecraft, a world with two mysterious bright spots that might be icy plumes. And NASA included Jupiter’s moon Europa on its new infographic. This month, NASA announced that it was moving forward with plans to send a spacecraft to study Europa, which was found recently to have salt water in the dark fractures on its surface. That salt water is presumably from the liquid ocean thought to lie below Europa’s frozen crust.
Remember, water is needed for life as we understand it, even microbial life.
The most intriguing question in astronomy is, in my view, whether life exists in our galaxy beyond the solar system. Thanks especially to the Kepler space telescope, we know that the galaxy is teeming with hundreds of millions of Earth-sized planets in the ‘habitable zones’ of their host stars that allow for liquid water on a rocky surface …
A more powerful telescope will be needed to place meaningful statistical constraints on how common or rare life in the galaxy is. One with a mirror at least 12 meters across and with a resolution 25 times that of Hubble’s would be able to image a planet next to its star and detect spectrally the presence of oxygen and other biosignatures in its atmosphere.
WFIRST/AFTA [Wide Field Infrared Survey Telescope, a proposed space observatory selected by National Research Council committee as the top priority for the next decade of astronomy] should be able to detect a planet 1 billion times fainter than its star; a brightness contrast of 10 billion will be required to image an Earth analogue next to a sun-like host star …
A large sample of planets — around 50 — would have to be tested. Calculations show, for example, that if no biosignatures are detected in more than about three dozen Earth analogues, the probability of remotely detectable extrasolar life in our galactic neighborhood is less than about 10%.
Note Livio’s use of the word biosignatures. That’s an important new buzzword in the alien life search. A biosignature is any substance – any element, isotope, molecule, or phenomenon – that provides unmistakeable scientific evidence of past or present life on another world. Scientists who study extrasolar planets, aka exoplanets – planets orbiting distant stars – are increasingly optimistic that we will eventually find biosignatures on worlds far beyond our solar system, many light-years away.
In July, 2014, NASA representatives said at a public talk on extraterrestrial life that the agency would continue the search for life with the launch of at least three future space observatories. They are:
– The Transiting Exoplanet Surveying Satellite (TESS), scheduled for launch in 2017. It’ll search for exoplanets, using the same technique as the very successful Kepler Space Telescope. Thanks to Kepler, we now know 4,601 exoplanet candidates, with 1,021 planets confirmed, but only eight of Kepler’s discoveries are small planets like Earth in their stars’ habitable zones. TESS is Kepler’s successor. It will use an array of wide-field cameras in an all-sky survey, scanning nearby stars for exoplanets. With TESS data, astronomers will study masses, sizes, densities and orbits of exoplanets, including, NASA hopes, an increased number of rocky worlds in the habitable zones of their host stars. Will they look for biosignatures from these worlds? No, not with TESS. For that sort of study, you need to be able to split starlight into its component colors, or spectra, which is why some astronomers are looking to …
– The James Webb Space Telescope, scheduled for launch in 2018. Kepler and TESS (and a multitude of other searches) reveal exoplanets. But the search for biosignatures will be conducted via the powerful spectrographs of the largest ground-based telescopes and by the James Webb Telescope.
– The Wide Field Infrared Survey Telescope WFIRST/AFTA, mentioned above), hopefully to be launched early in the coming decade.
As we mentioned at the top of this post, astronomers now believe that virtually every stars in our galaxy has at least one planet. It’s easy to see why we haven’t found microbial life on any of these worlds. We haven’t been to very many worlds – or returned samples from many worlds (although sometimes, as in the case of Martian meteorites, interesting samples of other worlds do sometimes come to us).
So we haven’t found microbial life yet because our technology hasn’t advanced far enough to let that happen. But it very probably will happen, and probably within the timeframe – 20 to 30 years – suggested by NASA chief scientist Ellen Stofan in April.
Intelligent extraterrestial life is a different question. Hundreds of billions of planets in our galaxy alone? Surely some have intelligent life. If so, some of those intelligent aliens must have developed interstellar travel by now; we’re discussing how to do it, after all. If we can conceive of it, perhaps some have done it.
Physicists Enrico Fermi and Michael H. Hart thought of many of those same arguments in 1950. The sun is a typical star. There are billions of planets. Assuming Earth is typical, some planets should have intelligent life and should have developed interstellar travel. They added that:
Even at the slow pace of currently envisioned interstellar travel, the galaxy can be completely colonized in a few tens of millions of years.
And, of course, our galaxy is vastly older than that, some 13 billion years old.
Whatever you personally believe about visitations by aliens, Fermi saw no convincing evidence of it. He famously asked:
Where is everybody?
That question is known as Fermi’s Paradox, and while no one knows the answer to it for certain, there are some standard answers. For example, maybe interstellar travel simply uses too much energy, and hence it too costly to undertake. Or maybe we have been – or are being – visited, and, for some reason, alien intelligences have declined to make themselves known.
Many other astronomers, especially young astronomers just entering the field, will likely join in the search for biosignatures among the planets in our solar system and among the thousands of exoplanets discovered so far, orbiting distance stars.
Why search for life? At the June 16, 2015 NASA panel discussion, panelist John Grunsfeld – a physicist and former astronaut and Associate Administrator for the Science Mission Directorate at NASA Headquarters in Washington, D.C. – said:
We’re trying with the science to answer some fundamental questions … where do we come from?
What’s the evolution, the path, by which the Earth was formed in such a way to allow life to form?
What’s the future of the Earth and solar system, and what’s our role in that future?
Are we alone? Is there any other life out there?
As always, there are more questions than answers, but it’s a safe assumption that – in the weeks and months and years ahead – we’re going to be hearing a lot more about this subject!
View larger. | Artist’s illustrations of 12 extrasolar planets, known to orbit in the habitable zones of their parent stars. These exoplanets have the right temperature for water to be a liquid on their surfaces, and so water-based life – like that on Earth – might be able to survive on them.
Bottom line: If you’re looking for a precise answer to the question “how close are we to finding alien life,” you can stop reading. No one knows the answer for certain. However, over the past year, the search for alien life has heated up in the scientific community. This post outlines some of the ways that scientists are thinking about, talking about and implementing the search for life beyond Earth.
SETI's attempt to make contact with other signs of life
SETI's attempt to make contact with other signs of life

Human beings have always wondered if they're alone in the Universe.
In 1960, a young astronomer named Frank Drake decided to find out. He pointed an 85-foot antenna at two distant stars and started listening for signs of life. In that moment, a new discipline was born: the search for extraterrestrial intelligence, or SETI.
The epicenter of this search is the SETI Institute, an unassuming office building in Mountain View, California—the heart of Silicon Valley.
Seth Shostak, director of the Center for SETI Research at the institute, says the search for extraterrestrial intelligence is a lonely corner of science. "Worldwide, the total number of people doing this for a job, if you will, is maybe a dozen, maybe fifteen," he says. "Something like that. It's very small, terribly small."
When the SETI Institute was founded in 1984, its primary purpose was to look for intelligent life using the tools of radio astronomy. But since then, they've expanded into astrobiology, the study of all life in the Universe.
"So could there have been life on Mars, is there maybe life on Mars today, the moons of the outer solar system, how did life get started, things like that," explains Shostak.
Today, most of the researchers at the institute are astrobiologists, funded by outside grants. Oddly enough, only six people at the institute are looking for intelligence – the 'I' in SETI. Shostak leads that small team. He says they've come a long way since Frank Drake's experiment in 1960.
"Instead of having a single antenna listening to one spot on the radio dial at a time, now we can have multiple antennas listening to millions of spots on the dial at the same time."
They use the Allen Telescope Array, a sprawling field of 42 antennas at the Hat Creek Radio Observatory in Northern California. If the technology keeps improving, Shostak expects to make contact by about 2040.
What that contact will look like, we don't know. But Shostak is pretty sure: Hollywood has not prepared us for the real aliens.
"You know the ones on TV, they have big eyeballs and grey skin, no hair, never smile, don't tell any jokes, have no pets," Shostak says, if we want to know what aliens would really be like, he says, we should look at our own civilization.
In about a century, we've gone from inventing radio technology to nearly developing strong artificial intelligence—machines that can learn and think just like humans can. Considering that the Universe is about 13.8 billion years old, it is likely that any civilization we'd be hearing from is highly advanced; they've probably already gone through a similar chapter of history, a similar leap in technology.
"In other words, most of the intelligence in the Universe is probably artificial intelligence," says Shostak. "So if we pick up a signal, my guess is it's coming from a machine."
But so far, SETI hasn't found any intelligence, artificial or otherwise. Which begs the question, where is everybody?
This question was formalized—and immortalized—in 1950 by the physicist Enrico Fermi. As the story goes, he was working on the Manhattan Project at Los Alamos National Laboratory when it occurred to him that if the Universe is as big and old as we think it is, and it's full of intelligent civilizations, somebody probably would've colonized the Milky Way by now.
"If the galaxy has a lot of societies, and if only a few of them are interested in colonization, there's been more than enough time for them to have done that, to have colonized the entire galaxy," says Shostak. "We should see aliens everywhere, and we don't seem to."
The Fermi Paradox has led some to conclude that life is probably rare in the Universe. But Shostak doesn't buy it. In recent years, NASA's Kepler space telescope has surveyed thousands of star systems in the Milky Way, and about 1 in 5 of those stars is orbited by an Earthlike planet.
"That means there's tens of billions of earthlike worlds in the galaxy," says Shostak. "It's a big number."
The odds seem pretty good that there's some life out there. Besides, if we're totally alone, that could mean only one thing..."This place is a miracle," says Shostak. "And, as a scientist, it's very difficult to believe in miracles, because normally if you're believing in miracles you're only fooling yourself. Most things aren't miracles."
Brownlee and his co-author, paleontologist Peter Ward, argue that microbial life may be common in the Universe. But complex life—the kind we have on Earth—is, well, rare.
"There are a number of nice things the Earth has that's promoted the evolution of higher organisms," he says.
Things like environmental stability. We have plate tectonics that recycle carbon, acting like a thermostat to keep Earth liveable. Our large moon may also have an influence on the Earth's axial tilt, helping to regulate the climate as well.
"Also Jupiter, interestingly enough, plays a role," says Brownlee. It's possible that Jupiter has steered asteroids in Earth's direction over time. And without those asteroids, we wouldn't have water. (The role of Jupiter in the Earth's asteroid traffic is complex and contested—see more here.)
The point is, these and other factors have made life on Earth possible. And Brownlee says our planet seems to be the exception, not the rule. "The Universe is actually quite, quite hostile to life. It's either too hot, or too cold, or not enough pressure, no water..."
Some say the rare earth hypothesis relies on a limited definition of "life" that it doesn't take into account alien worlds with life forms we can't even imagine.
"We can speculate about silicon-based life and so forth, life that might live in liquid helium or molten lead, but we have no physical basis for that," says Brownlee. He thinks our theories should be based on the data we have. Which is why he believes SETI is important—because it's looking for data where no one else is. "I don't think it should be a national priority, but you know it's certainly a good thing to do."
Back at the institute, Shostak says SETI is far from a national priority. The SETI Institute used to be funded by NASA. But in 1993, when the Clinton Administration's top priority was dealing with the deficit, the search for ET was an easy target. SETI's biggest opponent was Richard Bryan, a senator from Nevada. He characterized the search as "foolish and wasteful," and successfully urged lawmakers to cut the program's annual budget of approximately $10 million. With the federal money dried up, the SETI Institute was reincarnated as a non-profit research organization, relying largely on donations.
"The money that funds our SETI research is due to people who just send us a check because they think this is an interesting thing to do," says Shostak.
The biggest donors have always been their neighbors in Silicon Valley. The founders of Intel, Microsoft, and Hewlett-Packard have all given money. Most recently, Franklin Antonio, co-founder of the wireless communications company Qualcom, gave $3.5 million. Still, Shostak and the team struggle to bring in just 1 or 2 million dollars a year—the bare minimum they need.
Even on a shoestring budget, one researcher is planning way, way ahead.
Doug Vakoch is the Director of Interstellar Message Composition. He spends a lot of his time brainstorming on the issue with linguists, anthropologists, and other experts who typically aren't involved in the SETI conversation. The goal? To develop the perfect message to send to the extraterrestrials.
After years of just listening, Vakoch thinks it's time to amp up the search, and send a message of our own. This idea is called "Active SETI." And some scientists think it's a really bad idea. "No less a person than Stephen Hawking has said, 'Whatever you do, don't transmit to the extraterrestrials. They may come and strip-mine our planet.'"
Those who oppose Active SETI say we don't know what's out there, so we shouldn't advertise ourselves. (Some experts have even circulated a petition protesting the idea.) But to Vakoch, that fear doesn't make sense.
"Even if another civilization can travel between the stars," says Vakoch, "if they're hostile, if they want to come here and eat us or simply destroy us...sad news is, it's too late."
Earth has been leaking radio and television transmissions into space for decades. Vakoch admits that a targeted broadcast would be more powerful than our unintentional cosmic noise pollution, but the fact is, if anyone's out there listening, they've probably already heard us. So Vakoch believes we might as well send a proper greeting.
"When we think about how to communicate with another civilization, we can't count on them knowing English or Swahili or Russian, so we have to come up with something universal."
If another civilization is receiving our message at all, that means they can build a radio telescope, which means they're engineers; they understand math and physics.
"They probably know at least 2+2=4. So that's a starting point," he says. From there, Vakoch says we might be able to tell them about something as abstract as altruism, perhaps using the language of genetics.
"Or consider music," Vakoch says. "Music captures something quintessential about what it is to be human, but if you think about it, the structure of music is very much a mathematical and physical thing. So once we can communicate something about mathematical ratios and notions of time and frequency and duration, we can start describing our music."
It'll be a difficult task, expressing human experience in truly universal terms. But even if we never make contact, Vakoch says thinking about what we might say is a worthwhile pursuit.
"The reality is, there may be no extraterrestrials out there," Vakoch shrugs. "I hope to god there are, but if at the end of the day, the only thing we have accomplished is learning more about ourselves by trying to make contact, the whole project will still have been worth it."
For now, SETI won't be sending any messages into space. But as long as they have the money, they'll keep doing what they've always done: exploring the Universe through the radio dial, listening for signs of life.
The ancient fortress site of Tiahuanaco (Tiwanaku) in western Bolivia is still revealing secrets thousands of years after its peak as capital of an empire, and home to one of the most important civilizations prior to the Inca.
Archaeologists from the Tiahuanaco Archeological Research Center have discovered an underground pyramid at the site using ground-penetrating radar.
According to Fox News Latino, the Bolivian government has announced excavations are set to begin this summer on the new find at the Kantatallita area of Tiahuanaco, 71 kilometers (44 miles) west of La Paz.
Using ground-penetrating radar, researchers also have reportedly found “underground anomalies” which they suspect might be monoliths, but further analysis will be carried out before reaching official conclusions.
Ludwing Cayo, director of the Tiahuanaco Archeological Research Center told EFE News Agency that Tiahuanaco will be undergoing further investigations over the next five years. This is welcome news to some, as the site and stone monuments may have suffered from exposure weathering 4,000 meters above sea level.
AcercandoNaciones reports that some of the ruins of Tiahunaco have become dilapidated, and some researchers suggest these might benefit from the protection of an indoor museum.
Tiahuanaco has been a United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) World Heritage Site since 2000.

It was the capital of an empire that extended into present-day Peru and Chile, flourishing from 300 to 1000 A.D., and is believed to be one of the most important cities of ancient America.
Andean legends claim the area around Lake Titicaca was the cradle of the first humans on Earth.
According to the myths, Lord Viracocha, the creator of all things, chose Tiahuanaco as the place of creation. It is unknown how old these ruins are, but some researchers suggest that they date to 14,000 years B.C.
Fox News Latino writes that at its height, the Tiwanaku realm covered 600,000 square kilometers (231,000 square miles), and “left a legacy of impressive stone monuments such as Kalasasaya, the semi-underground Templete, sculptures of prominent figures, the Gate of the Sun and ruins of palaces.”

Previous excavations at the site have revealed substantial portions of the Akapana Pyramid Mound.
Archaeology’s InteractiveDig writes that in the ancient past there is evidence that the established infrastructure was razed and rebuilt by the inhabitants, and the city was abandoned.
Researchers say there was a sudden shift in 700 A.D. Previous monuments were torn down, and the blocks were used to build the Akapana Pyramid. However, by the time the city was abandoned, the project had still not been completed, and laid unfinished.

Results from the excavations at Tiahuanaco and the research into the newly detected buried pyramid are expected to be announced later this year.

Hot on the wet heels of the recent discovery of blue pools on Mars comes images via Google Mars of what looks like a blue waterfall cascading over the edge of a Martian crater and down its sides. Before you say “it’s no Niagara,” it’s also not the first waterfall discovered on Mars, just the bluest.
Blue waterfall discovered on the surface of Mars
The waterfall was discovered by Argentine UFO researcher Marcelo Irazusta at the Google Mars coordinates: 7° 38’31.40″N 166°14’3.57″E. That location is the Zunil Crater, a 6.5 mile (10.4 km) wide crater named for a town in Guatemala. First spotted by the Viking 1 and Viking 2 Mars orbiters, the current images were taken by the Mars Global Surveyor’s Mars Orbiter Camera in 2000.
Sharp-eyed observer Irazusta is also know for finding a saucer-shaped object on the Martian surface at Google Mars coordinates: 79°52’20.16″N 166°55’34.16″W.
Saucer-shaped object on the surface of Mars
Images resembling waterfalls have been found on Mars in the past. This image from the Mars Global Surveyor was discovered in 2003 before the advent of Google Mars.
What appear to be waterfalls on Mars discovered in 2003
This image taken by the Mars Express in 2008 is of the Echus Chasma, a massive 100 km by 10 km area that appears to have been formed by either a waterfall or a lava flow or both, possibly forming the Kasei Valles.
Cliffs surrounding Echus Chasma on Mars that may have once been waterfalls
This 3-D enhanced image comes from a 2011 study which speculates that the water that may be flowing over these waterfall cliffs is a salty brine that warms quicker than pure water and could be thawing even in Mars’ freezing temperatures.
Enhanced image of a possible briny waterfall on Mars
What are we looking at in the image discovered by Marcelo Irazusta? Is it a true waterfall on Mars? A frozen one? Why is it blue? The “official” explanation for the recently-discovered blue pools is an optical illusion. Is it frozen brine? Something else?
Yet another anomaly from the surface for the Red Planet. Google Mars is a great tool. Keep looking!
John Kennedy assassiné "parce qu'il s'intéresse aux OVNIS":
John Kennedy assassiné "parce qu'il s'intéresse aux OVNIS":
D'innombrables fantaisies ont été écrites à propos de l'assassinat du président des Etats-Unis John Kennedy. Des thèses allant du fantasque au plus sérieux expliquent diversement les raisons de l'assassinat. Sont ainsi désignés comme instigateurs, la Mafia, Fidel Castro, le KGB, le complexe militaro-industriel Etats-Unien, la droite Etats-Unienne etc.
Dans le monde fou fou fou de l'ufologie conspirationniste, inévitablement, existent des textes sur le web, des courriels sur listes de discussions, des interventions sur des forums, expliquant l'assassinat du Président Kennedy comme ayant un rapport avec la question des OVNIS. Le plus généralement, la thèse est que le président Kennedy allait faire des révélations au sujet des OVNIS, révélations de ce que les Etats-Unis se seraient emparés de débris d'un engin extraterrestre et de ses occupants à Roswell en 1947, par exemple, ou autres révélations non précisées.
Voici le genre de choses qui se racontent, et ce que cela vaut.
1. Une note de la NSA indique que Kennedy voulait partager avec Kroutchev des informations sur les OVNIS.
Cette affirmation est généralement accompagnée d'un lien vers le document censé la prouver.
Mais le document ne provient pas d'une source officielle mais d'un site propageant des documents dits "Majestic 12". Cette histoire de "Majestic 12", démarrant en 1984, était une grosse mystification à base de documents faux censés exposer un programme secret mis en place suivant une récupération d'OVNI accidenté et de ses occupants.
Comme on le voit, l'affirmation est simplement mensongère. Il n'y est absolument pas question de collaboration entre Kennedy et Kroutchev au sujet d'OVNIS. Il y est question de collaboration en matière d'exploration spatiale, de collaboration en matière d'imagerie de la Lune.
Une interview de Sergeï Kroutchev, le fils de Nikita Kroutchev, confirmerait cette collaboration sur les OVNIS et Kennedy aurait donc été assassiné parce que cela ne "convenait pas à tout le monde."
"I walked with him, sometime in late October or November, and he told me about all these things. He told me that we have to think about this and maybe accept this idea. I asked why they would know everything, our secrets? He said it's not important. The Americans can design everything they want. It is a very well developed country, but we will have to save money. It's very expensive…. He thought also of the political achievement of all these things, that then they would begin to trust each other much more. After the Cuban missile crisis, his trust with President Kennedy was raised very high. He thought that it's possible to deal with this President, he didn't think that they could be friends, but he really wanted to avoid the war, so through this co-operation they could sojourn their thoughts on these achievements."
"J'ai marché avec lui, autrefois en octobre ou novembre, et il m'a parlé de toutes ces choses. Il m'a dit que nous devons penser à cela et peut-être accepter cette idée. J'ai demandé pourquoi ils sauraient tout, nos secrets? Il a dit que ce n'est pas important. Les Américains peuvent concevoir tout qu'ils veulent. C'est un pays très bien développé, mais nous devons économiser l'argent. C'est très cher... Il a pensé également à l'accomplissement politique de toutes ces choses, qu'alors ils commenceraient à se faire davantage confiance. Après la crise cubaine des missiles, sa confiance dans le Président Kennedy est devenue très haute. Il a pensé qu'il est possible d'avoir affaire avec ce président, il ne pensait pas qu'ils pourraient être amis, mais il a vraiment voulu éviter la guerre, ainsi par cette coopération ils pourraient partager leurs idées sur ces réalisations."
Cette fois encore, comme on le voit, il n'est absolument pas question d'OVNIS!
Kroutchev parlait simplement de la coopération en matière d'exploration spatiale que Kennedy lui avait proposée...
2. Une note privée indique que "l'Agence" s'inquiétait de demandes répétées de Kennedy pour obtenir des informations sur les OVNIS.
Il est affirmé qu'une note sauvée de la destruction d'archives privées de James Jesus Angleton, qui serait un grand nom du renseignement, mêlé de près aux OVNIS et à "Majestic 12" montrerait que "l'Agence" (laquelle? la CIA) s'inquiétait de ce que Kennedy demande de façon répétée à avoir accès aux informations sur les OVNIS, et que le Directeur de la CIA Allen Dulles voulait l'empêcher. Il y aurait dans le document une directive ordonnant de tuer tout politicien qui s'opposerait aux projets du "Majestic 12".
Outre que la page en question n'est pas le document allégué mais un article de Michael Salla (déjà X fois discrédité, soutien à "Eric Julien" et autres inventeurs d'histoires, affaire des prétendues réunions secrètes sur les OVNI à l'ONU etc. etc.), parus sur un site faisant de la publicité à la "Scientologie", outre que le lien n'est pas le bon car ceci apparaît sur une suite de l'article de Salla, tout ce que l'on trouve là est un paragraphe tapé par Salla disant:
"Draft - Directive Regarding Project Environment - When conditions become non-conducive for growth in our environment and Washington cannot be influenced any further, the weather is lacking any precipitation... it should be wet."
"Brouillon - Directive Concernant l'Environnement de Programme - Quand les conditions deviennent défavorables pour la croissance de notre environnement et Washington ne peut pas être influencé davantage, la météo ne connaît pas de pluie... il devrait faire humide."
Vous ne rêvez pas, c'est cela qui est interprété comme un ordre d'assassiner tout politicien qui voudrait mettre le nez dans des affaires d'OVNIS!
Quant au "document", il y a bien un lien vers un "http://www.majesticdocuments.com/pdf/kennedy_ciadirector.pdf", mais comme par hasard, je n'arrive pas à l'ouvrir.
Et bien évidemment, tout cela provient de nouveau non pas d'archives officielles, mais d'un site web publient moult documents "Majestic 12", lesquels ont été découverts faux il y a belle lurette, et sont douteux au mieux - bien évidemment le site "reçoit" régulièrement de "nouveaux" documents "Majestic 12". Seul quelques lunatiques Etats-Uniens comme Michael Salla prennent encore ces "documents" comme authentiques.
Dans un mémo du 12 novembre 1963 adressé au Directeur de la CIA, Kennedy demande une révision de la classification des "high threat cases" (les cas les plus menaçants). A côté de la signature mécanographiée, on peut lire l'ajout manuscrit suivant: "Response from Colby: Angleton has MJ directive 11/20/63" et cela signifie qu'Angleton doit répondre à Kennedy selon les directives du Majectic 12 c'est à dire en assassinant Kennedy.
Hélas, si cette fois le lien fonctionne, on voit tout de suite qu'il s'agit d'un memo concernant la sécurité des futurs programmes d'exploration de la lune et non des OVNIS.
Certes le mot "UFO" y apparaît, comme un poisson dans la soupe, totalement et curieusement hors sujet, mais il ne faut pas être grand clerc pour deviner qu'il a pu être surajouté à la place de "CIA"!
Quant au mot MJ-12 pour "Majestic 12", il n'y figure même pas, on n'y trouve que "MJ"!
Ce n'est pas la première fois que des documents ne comportant PAS "MJ-12" ou "Majestic 12" sont ainsi récupérés par le conspirationnisme. Un bel exemple est à:
On y trouve cette image de très mauvaise résolution et on affirme y lire "MJ 12", alors que de toute évidence ce n'est pas MJ 12":
3. Une autre référence montre c'est vraisemblablement Angleton, en tant que chef du contre-espionnage de la CIA, qui a introduit Oswald dans le scenario de l'assassinat "comme un arbre qui cacherait la forêt".
Cette autre référence est une même référence déjà donné. C'est encore simplement un article de Michael Salla:
Encore une fois, nous avons là un simple "jpg" comme n'importe quel conspirationniste faussaire peut en produire - comme cela a été le cas avec les prétendus "documents Majestic 12" - et non pas un document de source officielle, mais encore, il n'y est absolument pas question d'OVNI, pas question d'assassiner Kennedy non plus, et encore moins d'assassiner Kennedy parce qu'il aurait voulu des informations sur les OVNIS.
Il s'agit d'un rapport de la CIA au sujet de l'assassinat de Kennedy - qui a alors déjà eu lieu - et dans laquelle la CIA informe que le machiavélique directeur du FBI, Hoover, souhaite que l'on garde secret que Lee Harvey Oswald, assassin désigné de Kennedy, ait été employé par les services secrets Etats-Uniens, entraîné par la CIA, pour des missions d'espionnage à l'encontre de l'Union Soviétique.
Que Lee Harvey Oswald n'ait pas été un personnage ordinaire mais ait eu des activités d'espionnage et même d'agent double est hors de doute et n'est depuis longtemps plus qu'un secret de polichinelle. Mais ce qui est clair est que ce papier n'a strictement rien à voir avec les OVNIS, rien d'une preuve que Kennedy ait été assassiné pour des affaires d'OVNIS!
Et donc, ces "éléments" prétendant justifier la thèse que Kennedy a été assassiné pour des questions d'OVNIS sont totalement douteux, parfois de purs détournements, parfois de probables falsifications.
Je ne peux pas refaire ici toute l'histoire du canular qu'à été "les documents Majestic 12", un canular parmi bien d'autres comme le "projet Serpo" ou "les lettres Ummites". Je préfère utiliser mon temps à autre chose qu'à l'histoire déjà bien assez dite par des enquêteurs au fait comme Kevin Randle de ce qui n'est qu'une fraude qui ne passionne plus que certains milieux ufologiques crédules. Brièvement, l'affaire commence quand Bill Moore diffuse des "documents" venant d'une source inconnue. Le plus "fort" de ces documents aurait prouvé que les Etats-Unis ont récupéré quatre cadavres d'extraterrestres. Un autre prétendait que Jésus-Christ était un extraterrestre.
Les documents ont d'abord été démontré être des faux par l'analyse de leur aspect et de leur chronologie. On a ainsi trouvé que certains étaient tapés sur un modèle de machine à écrire qui n'existait pas encore à leur date prétendue de création. Le plus fort de ces documents a été montré être un faux lorsque Phillip Klass a découvert que la signature du Président au bas du document était exactement la même que sur un autre document, authentique celui-là, ce qui démontre une simple copie de signature car personne ne trace jamais deux signatures exactement identiques.
Enfin, le journaliste et ufologue Bob Pratt a révélé une conversation qu'il avait eu avec Bill Moore: avant de fournir ces documents "MJ-12", celui-ci lui avait raconté à Bob Pratt ses plans pour un livre de fiction qu'il envisageait d'écrire, mêlant les présidents Truman et Eisenhower à deux affaire de "crashes" d'OVNI. Pratt avait ainsi compris qui avait ensuite fabriqué les faux documents "MJ-12".
SpaceX Third Attempt At Reusable Falcon 9 Explodes In Flight - June 28, 2015
SpaceX Third Attempt At Reusable Falcon 9 Explodes In Flight - June 28, 2015
The third attempt by the private space company SpaceX to land a Falcon 9 rocket on a platform in the Atlantic Ocean has ended up exploding during the launch phase before even attempting to land on the platform. This is yet another setback for the SpaceX company but one that will not derail their future plans. NASA wasn't built in a day and by no means will any private space company be able to avoid setbacks. The International Space Station will have to wait a little bit longer for their new supplies.

Answer to the article in the March 2015 issue of Astronomy Magazine entitled “Let’s cut the UFO crap”
Answer to the article in the March 2015 issue of Astronomy Magazine entitled “Let’s cut the UFO crap”
D. J. Eicher wrote an article in the March 2015 issue of Astronomy Magazine entitled “Let’s cut the UFO crap”. The title and footnote of this article are offensive and inaccurate. Answering Mr. Eicher’s letter is necessary, and perhaps will contribute to a constructive debate.
Similar to scientists and skeptics who dismiss and disparage the UFO topic, Mr. Eicher appears to be unaware of how complex and extensive the UFO phenomenon is, and seems to confuse the issue of extra-terrestrial intelligence with the issue of UFOs. Considering Mr. Eicher’s opinion, please also consider this quote from Stanford University Astrophysicist Emeritus Professor Dr. Peter Sturrock’s research: “One also finds that opinions (of members of the AAS – astronomer scientists) correlate strongly with time spent reading about the subject. The fraction of respondents who think that the subject certainly or probably deserves scientific study rises from 29%, among those who have spent less than one hour, to 68% among those who have spent more than 365 hours in such reading.” Perhaps Mr. Eicher should find himself among those who spend more time studying the relevant material before making sweeping statements as in his March 2015 column.
For example, Mr. Eicher is inaccurate when he writes: “…the claims of a businessman who said he spotted nine shiny ”flying saucers” moving at high velocities”. In fact, the witness told the reporters that he had observed during a trip in his own plane a chain of nine peculiar looking aircraft, flying in formation in two lines, and moving “like a saucer would do if you skipped it across the water”. It was the reporters who in their Associated Press dispatch erroneously transformed the description of the movement of the objects into a description of their shape, “saucer-like”.
Science does not require lock-step compliance with popular opinion. There isn’t anything in the principles of scientific endeavor that describes what one may or may not study. Mr. Eicher indicated “People see things in the sky they often don’t understand. That’s the conclusion.” For most scientists, a conclusion that states “something happened and I do not understand it” is hardly the point at which scientific inquiry should end. The nature of science is to study what we do not understand.
Despite the cosmic distance scale, it is not unscientific to consider the hypothesis that aliens have visited the planet versus the null hypothesis which states that they have not. The possibility of visitors operating spaceships in the form of UFOs is just one of several hypotheses to explain the UFO phenomenon.
There are well-documented observations made by many different trained, experienced observers that do warrant further study which, unfortunately, he has recommended against. The scientific problem with these reports is they often are not corroborated by instrument readings, and they cannot be replicated. These are problems to address, and are quite different from the problem that is stated in Mr. Eicher’s article.
Mr. Eicher’s article is puzzling, as its premises are not logically connected to the conclusion that the universe is big, Earth is special, and we should take care of it and our fellow human beings. It is not clear what these insights have to do with scientific study to understand aerial anomalies. Certainly psychologists could argue from sound evidence that if you really want to take care of other human beings, the first and most important step is to not exaggerate differences, deride open-minded curiosity, and demonize anyone who chooses to study that which you choose to discredit. Polemical arguments like the statement in the caption that ends the letter, and the article’s offensive title, are examples of what not to do. There are good scientific reasons to be skeptical about anomalous events in the sky, and even more reason to doubt alien visitation. However, those rational arguments do not justify demeaning and dismissing those who are inclined to study the possibility of alien visitation.
Unknown phenomena happening in the sky above is a call to scientific inquiry. That’s how we learn. Serious ufologists recognize the importance of monitoring unidentified anomalous phenomena in a rigorous and deterministic way. This is the reason new projects for networks of automatic stations for UFO monitoring are currently being defined. Identifying strategic sites and deploying appropriate instruments are crucial activities to enable mainstream scientists to acquire relevant data. Is it unscientific to collect data? We will keep Mr. Eicher informed about such coming endeavours.
I spend a lot of time at the Cabell County library going through old newspapers. Sometimes I'm looking for information on cases we're working on and sometimes I'm looking for information for my blog. Sometimes, I just stumble upon some really weird and awesome things! That's what happened to me last week, when I was doing some personal research on a family member who was involved in a murder.
The following article has been transcribed exactly how it appeared (weird spelling, grammar and all) in the January 13, 1914 edition of the Huntington Herald Dispatch. According to other articles from around the same time period, near this date a meteor was spotted by many over this area of the country. However, this was the only odd tale apparently associated with an otherwise normal event. Several boys who witnessed the meteor near the old C&O Hospital on Huntington's 6th avenue reported it did some pretty strange things! As an added bonus, this article goes on to discuss a haunted house that was located on 20th Street at the time! Note: If you enjoy this story, please check out The East End Pillow Miracle, another newspaper article I found about a bad omen discussed in a local Huntington newspaper.
BOYS SAY THEY SAW BRILLIANT METEOR DESCEND FROM HEAVEN WRITE NAME IN LETTERS OF FIRE, THEN RISE TO SKIES IN FORM OF WOMAN'S HEAD
Strange Story of Youngsters Living Near Chesapeake & Ohio Hospital Startles Their Parents—'Twas But Ordinary Shooting Star, Many Declare—Dark Tale of Haunted House in Same Vicinity Heard.
By R.S. Thornburgh
What many persons in the vicinity of the Chesapeake & Ohio hospital on upper Sixth avenue declared to have been a celestial portent of grave mien, but which others say was nothing more nor less than a huge brilliant meteor that swept the heavens shortly after dusk last night, was seen by several small boys while skating on a pond near the hospital who afterwards told a tale which is as wonderful and wierd as any of the dark mystery stories painted in classical literature.
The shadows had become long and disappeared in the gathering gloom as the youngsters played about an old field close to the hospital where there is a small sheet of ice. About as they were ready to start home one suddenly cried out to the others to behold a great falling star which was zizzagging its way down the heavens. One of them, according to his mother, Mrs. J.W. Terry of Nineteenth street and Buffington avenue, who afterwards related the story to a reporter, ran terrified to his home while the others waited in breathless fear to see what would happen.
This is the story they told to their parents:
The star became brighter and brighter, leaving in its path a tail of fire. Suddenly pausing over a lonely cottage in the vicinity, it spread into a great light.
As it hung like a fiery apparition over the home it silently burst into a flame of illumination.
So stunned by fear that they could scarcely move the boys saw written in letters of fire a strange name over the house. They said it was:
As they watched the letters faded and in their stead was the face of a woman, beautiful and pale. The blazing eyes of fire seemed turned upon them, they told their parents, as slowly the spirit-like form that had come down from the stars rose over the house and finally disappeared in the eastern heavens.
The youngsters, who sought out separately by persons in the neighborhood of the hospital told exactly the same story, are Charles and James Nash, the children of Mr. and Mrs. John Nash of Sixth avenue; Orben Davis, the son of Mrs. N.A. Davis, a nurse, of Sixth avenue, and Llewellyn Terry, the son of the Rev. and Mrs. J.W. Terry. The Rev. Mr. Terry is a traveling evangelist, now in the south. Orville Perry, a small colored boy, also saw the vision, according to his story.
The neighborhood on upper Sixth avenue was greatly excited last night by the story of the boys and credence was given to it by many. The boys were closely questioned by many persons, who expressed fear that the mysterious thing that blazed in the heavens was an omen of ill tidings, that death or deep suffering was to follow to someone. They said that it could not have been sent for nothing.
Strange tales were told there last night of a murder committed near where the wonderful sight was seen, in days long ago when the city was still young, and of a treasure buried by the murderer.
Hinging onto the story it was related that on Twentieth street, some distance away is a haunted house. Several persons have moved into the place and afterwards left because of wierd sounds that startle them from their sleep in the early hours of the morning.
These sounds, the tale goes, take the form of soft footsteps on the stairway and creakings of doors that never moved. None has explained these nocturnal disturbances nor why the sights that would make one's blood run cold have been there, said one woman last night, to whom the ghostly heavenly visitor that frightened the small boys brought to mind the haunted house.
It is the common talk in the vicinity that there is a treasure buried somewhere near this house and that back of this hord lies deep plot of intrigue as dark as any of the narrative of the operations of Kidd, the pirate, in the early days.
Writers of old times in their eastern mystery stories of strange happenings on wide deserts told of beings descended from the skies, of devils and genii risen from the depths of the region of fire, yet none dared conceive a more puzzling “yarn” than that told by the youngsters of what they thought they saw! All insisted that they were telling the truth and were apparently much frightened by what they could not understand.
Many persons in the city saw a flaming meteor just after dark last night. It was described as one of the most brilliant that has ever been witnessed in this part of the Ohio valley, forming a complete arc over the heavens before it finally disappeared in the western horizon.
Meteors, considered by the ancients as forerunners of disaster, famine or war, and almost as greatly feared as were comets, ever have had a romantic supernatural air about them, that leads to many a delightful tale.
However, at this season meteors are not unusual, astronomy tells us. This heavenly body is nothing more than a large shooting star which has become diverted from its course in the space beyond our atmosphere and is hurled through the air. The contact of the body with the air, because of its terrific speed causes the meteor to catch fire, therefore being visible to the eye. Most meteors and shooting stars burn themselves out before striking the earth, but occasionally one reads of one of these bodies reaching the ground with such force as to bury itself in the soil or even to damage property, in case of striking a building. Examination of such fallen stars by scientists have shown them composed of earth and various metals.
There are certain times of the year when falling stars are quite frequent, one of these periods being during the last of this month. At these times one may notice a large number of shooting stars if the nights are clear.
Het alternatieve scheppingsverhaal van de mensheid en de occulte wortels van het nazi-rijk
Het alternatieve scheppingsverhaal van de mensheid en de occulte wortels van het nazi-rijk
Hoog in de Himalaya leven volgens een oude Aziatische legende de ware vorsten van deze wereld. In het oud-Indische sanskriet worden zij de mahatma’s genoemd, de ‘grote zielen’. Ze zijn ontsnapt aan het samsara, het eeuwig draaiende wiel van dood en wedergeboorte. Ze zijn voorbij de limieten die de materie aan gewone stervelingen stelt.
Ze onderhouden volgens de legende interplanetaire contacten met de ruimtewezens die eens hun sporen nalieten op de aarde en aldus de keten van de mensheid in gang zetten, buiten de materie om, langs ‘astrale’ weg, als het ware opgelost in een wolk van losstaande atomen, regeren zij als de oude Griekse goden over de elementen en de mensheid.
Lang bleef de kennis die in Tibet geconcentreerd was, verborgen voor de buitenwereld. Pas in het midden van de 19e eeuw slaagde een westerling erin contact te leggen met twee van deze meesters. Het was de Russische theosofe Helena Anna Petrovna Blavatsky, die een geheel nieuwe zwaai zou moeten geven aan de geschiedenis van de mensheid.
Blavatsky, de oermoeder van de new age, werd in 1831 geboren in de stad Jekaterinoslav (Dnjepropetrovsk). Haar vader was de zoon van een prinses uit het Duitse groothertogdom Mecklenburg en van moederskant ging haar stamboom terug tot groothertog Roerik, de eerste heerser van Rusland.
Haar uitgangspunt was dat alle oude religies ieder op hun eigen manier dezelfde occulte en mystieke boodschappen doorgaven en dat er een goddelijk veld bestond dat via muziek, wijn, cannabis, dans of meditatie door mensen kon worden bereikt.
Dwars door alle religies heen regeerde een geheim verbond over de materie, bestaande uit onder meer de eerste kruisridders en mystiek-christelijke genootschappen als de Rozenkruisers en de vrijmetselaars. De moderne wetenschap was blind voor deze andere bestaansdimensies, waarvan ieder mens toch iets bevroedde.
Blavatsky stelde dat er een nieuwe tijd in aantocht was, het Aquariustijdperk, waarin alle onderlinge menselijke twisten zouden verdwijnen, evenals de dwingelandij van kerk en staat die zo kenmerkend was voor het Vissentijdperk waarin zij leefde. Ze zou als klein meisje zijn ‘bezocht’ door een soort geest, die in feite een heilige man uit de Himalaya was en die zij later ook in levenden lijve zou ontmoeten.
In 1888 publiceerde Blavatsky een alternatief scheppingsverhaal van de mensheid. Dat bestond volgens haar uit zeven ‘wortelrassen’, gebonden aan even veel continenten. Het eerste ras traceerde ze miljoenen jaren terug op de Noordpool. Op die ijskorst vertoefden wezens zonder fysiek lichaam, geheel ‘etherisch’. Dit eerste wortelras kon sterven noch gewond raken.
Het tweede wortelras ontstond iets zuidelijker, op een continent dat zich zou hebben uitgestrekt van Groenland tot Kamtsjatka. Deze ‘hyperboreeërs’ waren de eerste pogingen van de materiële natuur om menselijke lichamen te scheppen.
Lemuria was de naam van het derde continent in de geschiedenis van de mensheid volgens Blavatsky. Het bestond zo’n 18 miljoen jaar geleden en reikte van de Indische Oceaan tot Australië. Dit was het eerste wortelras met echt menselijke trekken.
Nadat ook Lemuria was vergaan, vestigden de overlevenden zich in Atlantis. Dit was een half verzonken continent in de Atlantishe Oceaan, niet te verwarren met het verzonken rijk waar Plato vier eeuwen voor Christus over sprak. Dit was begiftigd met telepathische krachten, samengebald in een zogeheten ‘derde oog’. Hier ontstond voor het eerst een scheuring tussen goed en slecht, tussen rechtvaardigen en onrechtvaardigen.
Atlantis ging zo’n 850.000 jaar geleden aan aardbevingen en vloedgolven ten onder, waarna de lichtdragende tak van de stam zich via Scandinavië en Centraal Europa naar Azië begaf, met als middelpunt de toen nog uiterst vruchtbare Gobi-vlakte.
Zo ontstond het vijfde wortelras, dat van de Ariërs, waarmee Blavatsky was gearriveerd bij de huidige tijd. Nog twee wortelrassen zullen volgen eer de menselijke evolutie tot een harmonieus eindpunt zal komen.
Agartha en Shambhala
Tibet, India en Perzië waren volgens de theosofische leer de bakermat van het Arische ras, met als centra twee verborgen plekken in de Himalaya, te weten Agartha en Shambhala. Deze locaties werden aangeduid als aan elkaar tegengestelde bronnen van enorm telepathisch vermogen, direct gelieerd aan mysterieuze buitenaardse intelligenties.
Het symbool van Agartha was het rechtsdraaiende hakenkruis, in het sanskriet swastika, waarvan de vier armen naar links wijzen zodat het kruis denkbeeldig meedraait met de rotatie van de aarde. Shambhala had als symbool het linksdraaiende hakenkruis, waarvan de armen naar rechts wijzen en dus tegen de rotatie van de planeten indraait.
Het hakenkruis werd onder regie van tsarina Alexandra ingevoerd aan het hof van de laatste Russische tsaar Nicolaas II. Het oudste hakenkruis zou in Transsylvanië zijn gevonden en zou dateren uit het stenen tijdperk. Over de hele wereld treft men het in grotten of gekerfd in stenen aan. Het is gevonden in IJsland, Scandinavië en zelfs op de Waddeneilanden. In de vierde eeuw voor Christus dook het teken op in India, Perzië en Tibet en 800 jaar later verscheen het ook in China en Japan.
Ook Adolf Hitler was erg geïnteresseerd in het symbool en het occulte in het algemeen. De op 20 april 1889 in Braunau am Inn geboren zoon van douanier Alois Schicklgruber en diens nicht Klara Poelzl stamde uit een streek die al van oudsher was vergeven van mediums, zieners en andere mystici.
In The Spear of Destiny laat de Britse historicus Trevor Ravenscroft de Weense filosoof Walter Stein aan het woord, die beweerde de occulte carrière van Adolf Hitler vanaf het begin te hebben gevolgd. Stein was een gerenommeerd kenner van de esoterische traditie, die net voor de oorlog naar Engeland was gevlucht. Tijdens de oorlog was hij persoonlijk adviseur van Winston Churchill.
Volgens Stein zou Hitler zijn ingewijd in een occulte orde, direct gelieerd aan het besloten netwerk van de beruchte Russische magiër Gurdjieff, die zich nadrukkelijk liet voorstaan op buitenaardse contacten. Met dit inwijdingsproces waren zelfs experimenten met psychedelisch werkende paddenstoelen en andere drugs gemoeid, aldus ex-militair Ravenscroft.
Winston Churchill verbood dat deze materie aan de orde zou komen tijdens de Processen van Neurenberg tegen de oorlogsmisdadigers. Het publiek zou er nog niet klaar voor zijn.
Onder leiding van de Beierse grootmeester van de Orde der Germanen baron Rudolf von Sebotendorff werd het Thule-Gesellschaft opgericht. Thule, vernoemd naar de Germaanse naam voor het Atlantis van Blavatsky, tooide zich met een Shambhala-hakenkruis.
Eind 1918 telde het Thule-gezelschap 1500 leden, onder wie gezaghebbende aristocraten als prins Gustav Franz Maria von Thurn und Taxis. Verwant aan de Thule-ideeën was het streven van het eveneens in Berlijn gevestigde Genootschap van de Vril. Volgens dit genootschap was de controle over de geheime energie van de vril, een in de allerkleinste deeltjes van de materie verborgen superkracht, voorbehouden aan de Ariërs.
Een belangrijk lid van Thule en van het Vril-genootschap was de Beierse generaal Karl Haushofer, die lange tijd in Indië en het Verre Oosten was verbleven. Haushofer, de bedenker van de term Lebensraum, viel op door zijn mediamieke gaven: schijnbaar moeiteloos voorspelde hij het tijdstip van de inslag van granaten, de plaats van vijandelijke aanvallen en het uitbreken van stormen.
Haushofer, de jonge architect Rudolf Hess, Adolf Hitler en Dietriech Eckhart behoorden tot de zeven moderne Teutoonse ridders die in 1919 de NSDAP oprichtten, met het Shambhala-hakenkruis in de vlag.
De ontsnapping van Hitler
De Thule-doctrines werden, naarmate Hitlers machtsbasis verstevigde, steeds meer opgenomen in de nieuwe orde, inclusief de Arisch-wetenschappelijke doctrines als de theorie van de holle aarde van Hans Hörbiger. Het wetenschappelijke SS-bureau Ahnenerbe, voor onderzoek naar de nalatenschap der voorvaderen, werd het occulte studiecentrum van de nazi’s.
Het bureau beschikte over een groter budget dan het Amerikaanse team dat de atoombom ontwikkelde en had infiltranten in alle mogelijke vertakkingen van de internationale occulte en esoterische gezelschappen.
Na de laatste onthullingen uit de KGB-kokers over Operatie Mythos, het onderzoek dat Stalin liet uitvoeren naar Hitlers einde, is lang niet iedereen er meer van overtuigd dat de Führer op 30 april 1945 zelfmoord heeft gepleegd.
Honderd procent uitsluitsel dat het inderdaad de overblijfselen van Hitler waren die in de nacht van 4 op 5 april 1970 door enkele KGB-officieren in Magdenburg werd opgegraven, verbrand en in de wind verstrooid, zal er vrijwel nooit komen.
Wijlen Miguel Serrano, oud-ambassadeur van Chili in India, Joegoslavië en Oostenrijk en lid van tal van aan de VN-gelieerde organisaties, publiceerde in 1984 een 600 pagina’s tellende studie genaamd ‘Adolf Hitler, el Ultimo A vatara’. Volgens Serrano ontsnapte Hitler in 1945 in een vliegende schotel van Duitse makelij. Vanuit een ondergrondse centrale aan de Zuidpool zou hij verder hebben gewerkt aan zijn esoterische plannen.
De diplomaat verdedigde de stelling dat Hitler in het diepste van de aarde plannen maakte om met behulp van hoogontwikkelde nazi-UFO’s het Derde Rijk te voltooien. Serrano nam deel aan een wetenschappelijke missie van de Chileense regering naar Antarctica, om daar op zoek te gaan naar UFO-bases.
Nadat we het originele artikel hieronder hadden geplaatst, kregen wij van een aantal lezers de opmerking dat de door professor Ana Luisa Cid gemaakte opname van een UFO bij de Mexicaanse piramide in Teotihuacan niet echt zou zijn.
Naar aanleiding van het feit dat wanneer je de UFO op de afbeelding vergroot, het lijkt alsof deze er later in geplakt zou zijn.
Echter, mevrouw Cid blijft vasthouden aan het verhaal dat deze UFO wel degelijk echt is en heeft nu een video gepubliceerd (helaas in het Spaans) waarin ze verder op dit verhaal in gaat en ook spreekt met een tweetal werknemers die zo ongeveer iedere dag op die plek vertoeven:
Nu zijn er een aantal toeristen die bij diezelfde Piramide van de Zon ook een opname hebben gemaakt van een UFO.
Deze waarneming werd op 25 juni 2015 ingediend bij MUFON en de bovenstaande foto werd volgens de getuige op 4 mei 2015 genomen.
Zij vertelt verder dat haar vriendin tien seconden later eveneens een foto nam waarop niets te zien was.
Wanneer we wat verder inzoomen dan blijkt er niet één, maar twee UFO’s zichtbaar te zijn.
Bovenstaande verhaal wil natuurlijk niet zeggen dat nu ineens de opname van professor Anna Luisa Cid gegarandeerd echt zou zijn, maar het maakt het iets aannemelijker nu ongeveer een maand later door andere mensen een aantal vergelijkbare UFO’s worden gefotografeerd.
The Comeback of Unimpeachable UFO Witness 35 Years After
The Comeback of Unimpeachable UFO Witness 35 Years After
Colonel Charles Halt, the famous UFO saga comes back to Suffolk to tell the story. A former US air force commander, depicted as an “unimpeachable” witness recognized worldwide as the ‘Rendlesham UFO incident’, comes back to Suffolk 35 years after. Halt’s first sighting was in the early hours of December 26, in which Halt is not involved. In the first hours of December 28, 1980, second sighting of the Rendlesham Forest UFO was reported. He will be flying back to Suffolk next back to address the local public with regards to its happenings.
While serving as a Deputy Commander, he prepared a memorandum to the Ministry of Defense telling “unexplained lights”. He also recorded the Halt Tape, which is a documented investigation in the forest which Halt saw strange lights during that time, like those witnessed by John Burroughs and Jim Penniston two nights earlier. He signed an affidavit to claim his encounter as an extraterrestrial matter and had been covered up by the government in 2010. At Woodbridge Community Hall on July 11, a conference has been organized by Dawn Holloway and John Hanson, authors of UFO books entitled Haunted Skies.
According to Mr Hanson, the Rendlesham incident is the most controversial in history. In fact, all the people involved have created their versions. Being an unimpeachable UFO witness, he never came back to speak locally. Fortunately, the comeback was confirmed, and it is great news for everyone who want to know more about the incident. Nick Pope said that he met Colonel Halt many times. He described Colonel as a man of integrity and is an unimpeachable witness. The incident in Rendlesham Forest is the world’s most compelling sightings. The conference will be preceded from 5pm-7pm by a book fair, including a ‘meet and greet’ with Mrs Butler, Mr Hanson and David Bryant.
Hundreds of sightings, abductions and first-hand accounts have made it possible to distinguish several distinct alien species that have been in cahoots with military forces, deciding our future without ever consulting us. Below are the least obscure ones we could find.
1. The Sirians
Hailing from the Sirius B star system, the Sirians are as advanced as they are ancient. Throughout history, they have imparted their knowledge to human civilizations of their choosing. They gifted the ancient Egyptians with medical and astronomical information and the great pyramids and temples are said to have been built with their help.
The Mayans also had a special relationship with the Sirians, who shared information with this enigmatic South American civilization. The extraterrestrial originating from Sirius B are believed to have played a part in the disappearance of the Maya, but not before ensuring they left behind amazing artifacts such as the crystal skulls.
Another earthly civilization that benefited from the Sirian presence were the Atlanteans; it is believed that during the cataclysmic event that sunk Atlantis, the Sirians were instrumental in leading the rescue operations. Other civilizations have been influenced by the Sirians, the most notable case being that of the Dogon tribe of West Africa.
Although they were more involved during our planet’s past, nowadays the Sirians play a more subtle part: technology exchange programs. They are often mentioned in connection with covert or exotic weapons research as well as time travel experimentation.
2. The Short Grays
Also known as the Zeta Reticulums, the Grays are some of the most well-known aliens and commonly depicted throughout alien pop culture. They are the authors of most alien abductions.
According to most descriptions, they stand 3 to 5 feet tall, have bulbous heads and over-sized black eyes. Although they possess a mouth, they seldom speak, as most communication is carried out telepathically. The short Grays are said to be a genetically-engineered worker race that are controlled by their superiors, the Tall Grays. Their telepathic abilities allow them to constitute a type of hive mind consciousness.
Being genetically-designed to carried out scientific missions, the short Grays are emotionless and cruel. They are alo responsible for creating a human-gray hybrid race.
3. The Tall Grays
Standing 7 to 8 feet tall, the Gray Masters are the ambassadors of most meetings between human and alien forces. They are always present at any diplomatic agreements with the global shadow government. Sources claim they originate from a star system in the Orion constellation.
The Tall Grays supervise all abductions and human experiments but are seldom present during these events. They prefer to employ the services of their minions, the Short Grays. As it would seem, they are keen on developing a stable human-gray hybrid race, one worthy of inheriting Earth.
An advanced, self-centered race, they place little value on human life. They consider us their property.
4. The Alpha-Draconians
Corrupt and vicious, the Alpha-Draconians have infiltrated human society thousands of years ago. Although they came to Earth from their colonies on Alpha Draconis, their original home world is unknown.
A decidedly giant reptilian species, they measure anywhere from 14 to 22 feet tall. Weighing an estimated 1,800 pounds, their muscular bodies are covered in green or brown scaly skin. They are an intelligent race, with large heads and reptilian eyes. Some accounts describe them as having tails or even wings.
Contactee Alex Collier says he was allowed to share some details about these extraterrestrials:
The Draconians are the force behind the repression of human populations everywhere in this galaxy, instilling fear-based belief systems and restrictive hierarchies.
[…]they’re extremely clairvoyant and extremely clever, and they can also be extremely sinister.”
The Draconians view themselves as the first intelligent species to evolve in the Milky Way galaxy. Competitive and expansive, they have populated many worlds. Their immense egos allows them to see themselves as the rightful rulers of lesser evolved worlds such as Earth.
Their continuous exploitation of the human race proves they consider us an inferior species.
Reports say there are actually two types of Alpha-Draconians divided into two castes: the giant ones are part of a royal caste called the Ciakar while the smaller ones (8 feet tall) form a well-trained warrior class.
5. The Native Reptilians
Often confused with the warrior caste of the Alpha Draconians, these reptilians are said to be native to Earth. The little information available for this species states that they were originally left behind by the Alpha-Draconians to colonize Earth.
Their interaction with mankind goes back thousands of years, sometimes offering assistance but more often than not using us as a commodity. They have infiltrated almost all aspects of human life and hold positions of power. Reptilians manipulate our elites and rule our institutions and organizations. They built the financial system and influence all religions.
The underground reptilian race is also said to control the media and all corporations. They are behind most crimes against humanity.
6. The Anunnaki
An elite race of beings that originated in another galaxy they called Illyuwn. Their home world was a planet called Rizq. When Rizq was destroyed, they built an intergalactic vessel they named Nibiru.
Before heading to Earth, the Anunnaki colonized the planets in the Orion star system. They arrived on Earth almost a million years ago, in search of gold and other valuable minerals that were scarce in the universe, but abundant here.
In need of a workforce, they are said to have created mankind. Through genetic manipulation and in vitro fertilization, they upgraded the genus Homo to sapiens quality. Present on Earth since our inception, the Anunnaki have influenced every aspect of human life. We’ve inherited their patriarchal culture of violence and vengeance, it’s in our engineered DNA.
The Anunnaki are in direct competition with the Draconians for control over mankind.
Zone of Silence in Mexico is an Unexplained Mystery
By Logan Hawkes
There is much about our world that we still do not understand. Scientists tell us that natural mysteries abound in every corner of the Earth, from the lifeless desert of Chile to the bottomless depths of the Pacific, there are things we simply do not comprehend.
Perhaps this is the best way to describe a place in northern Mexico in the middle of the hot, searing, punishing Chihuahuan desert, a place commonly called the "Zone of Silence" by the few locals, scientists, students and visitors that wander there from time to time in search of answers. It is a strange place to experience, one of those mysterious natural wonders that beg our attention and muddle our senses. It is sometimes difficult to tell what is truth and what is not; to recognize what you see as real or not.
Drive 400 hundred miles west of El Paso and you enter into an unforgiving section of foreboding semiarid desert landscape that begs for mercy but offers none. The nearest settlement is Ceballos, a ragtag community that holds on precariously to its existence some 25 miles across the barren plain from the heart of "The Zone". Here life is challenging, and there is a constant, delicate balance between death and survival.
The region has remained all but undiscovered by the outside world. There are no fancy hotels in the Zone, no beaches or pools, no life except for the most hardy of insects, reptiles and small mammals that suffer its tormenting weather.
But in 1970 a faulty American Athena missile fired from the White Sands Missile Base in nearby New Mexico went off course inexplicably and crashed into the mysterious desert region and made the world aware of the unique and apparently unusual properties of the area. Subsequently a team of U.S. Air Force investigators, with Mexican government approval, journeyed to the crash site and made an unexpected discovery. Within an unspecified and sometimes shifting area within the Zone, radio signals fail to travel through the air, creating a type of dark zone. No television, radio, short wave, microwave, or satellite signals seem to penetrate this zone. The name, Zone of Silence, was quickly adopted, and researchers began flocking to the remote location shortly thereafter.
The Mexican government has since constructed a research complex in "the Zone", a place the scientists assigned there call the biosphere. The primary purpose of the research facility is to study the plant and animal life of the unusual region. But rumors have it that a lot more research is going on there than meets the eye - if there were any eyes in this remote part of the world to see it.
It turns out there may be some natural anomaly associated with the region. High levels of magnetite have been discovered there, and scientist have also found that the area is a hot bed for meteorite activity, raising speculation that there may be some unusual magnetic properties associated with the minerals in the chalky soil. Researchers have been trying to determine whether magnetic ore is naturally occurring or is the product of contamination from thousands or millions of years of meteorite bombardment. And if the high-magnetic properties are a result of natural causes, could this be the reason that so many iron-rich objects from space find their way to this remote spot on Earth?
Theorists are quick to point out that the Zone is geographically located just north of the Tropic of Cancer and shares the same latitude south of the 30th parallel as the Bermuda Triangle, a fact scientist point out is probably a simple coincidence. In fact, scientists at the Mexican research center have dubbed the region, the Mar de Tetys, or The Sea of Thetys, because at one time, millions of years ago, the area lay at the bottom of an ocean.
In defense of the theorists, there have been a number of unusual tales that have come out of the Zone. Strange lights, floating orbs, burning bushes, flying saucers, and alien encounters have all been reported with a degree of abundance considering the sparse population of the region. Ranchers of the area report the night sky is often filled with mysterious lights, and they have reported "floating aircraft" that allegedly landed vertically in the desert, often causing brush to ignite and catch fire.
And there have been reports of encounters with strange humanoid creatures. One ranch family claims they are regularly visited by a trio of blonde, long haired humanoids, two males and a female, that speak perfect Spanish. As the story goes, the visitors only ask for water, never for food or other provision. And when asked once by the rancher where they came from, they reportedly answered "from above".
Then there's the story of the visiting researcher at the "Biosphere" who became lost in the desert. He reports he was directed back to the research center by a similar trio of blonde "strange looking people." Another story has it that a TV news investigation crew was aided by strange beings in the desert after being stuck in the road after an unusual cloud burst. These "beings" reportedly wore long raincoats and ball caps, something, admittedly, you don't often see in the desert wilderness.
How much about the unusual region in northern Mexico is true and how much is the product of human imagination, how much fact and how much fiction, no one can say for sure. But there is little question that there does exist some natural phenomena that appears to evade logical explanation. What the cause and effect may be (science, miracle or magic) remains to be seen. But isolationists and serious researchers of the unusual will find the region of great interest if you're in the mood for a dirty day in the desert.
Just don't plan on watching any TV in Ceballos. There isn't any.
UFO in India? Kanpur boy clicks pictures of a ‘perfect’ Unidentified Flying Object
UFO in India? Kanpur boy clicks pictures of a ‘perfect’ Unidentified Flying Object
June 26, 2015 - Kanpur is no California, but a boy here claims to have snapped photos of a UFO while trying to capture some clouds in his smartphone.
The incident reportedly happened at Shyamnagar locality on Wednesday. Santosh Gupta now wants scientists to examine the photos clicked by his son Abhijit on his smartphone.
The photos are of a stereotypical flying saucer, the first thing that comes to anyone’s mind when you say UFO. There are some flashy red lights too for good measure. Yes, smartphones these days have apps that lets even kids add all kinds of objects to images, flying or otherwise. But then who has time for skepticism when you can let a story really fly like a kite.
Whether it is a real UFO will be debated till the aliens themselves make a disclosure, but let us tell you that California gets the most other-worldly traffic with 11,202 recorded sightings so far.
In fact, the United States gets so many sightings of unidentified (or unnecessarily) flying objects that there is even a national register of such events with the National UFO reporting Centre. For the record, there have been 338 reports Just in June 2015.
You can report your UFO sightings in our comments section below. Let your imagination fly…
A possible UFO has been photographed over the ancient city of Teotihuacan in Mexico. UFOs and other bizarre aerial phenomena have been reported from many ancient historical sites for decades with many researchers theorizing that there is an extraterrestrial connection with these ancient monuments and cultures.
Mystery of the Tayos Cave - Legendary Metal Library Found in Ecuador
Mystery of the Tayos Cave - Legendary Metal Library Found in Ecuador
In what maybe one of the biggest discoveries ever, a team of explorers is claiming that they have found the legendary golden library and other mysterious treasures in the Tayos Cave system in Ecuador. The team announced that they accidentally found some hidden tunnels that were obviously dug out artificially sometime in the ancient past while inside one of the main chambers. The team was able to follow one of these tunnels for approximately ½ mile and came upon a large room containing the golden library and various other treasures.
Below is a list of what the explorers claim to have found in this chamber:
1. A library with thousands of metal books. The team was unable to specify what metal the books were made of but the look was similar to silver. Each page had symbols and strange writing on them.
2. Individual plates with writing on them and strange symbols that looked to bego made of ld.
3. At least several hundred statues of insects, animals and humans spread throughout the large chamber.
4. Lots of metal bars thought to be both gold and/or silver. Also found were various children’s toys and jewelry items made from gold or silver.
5. One large sarcophagus containing one human skeleton decorated with jewels and golden jewelry.
6. The team also found at least three doors that could be more tombs but were sealed completely shut.
As of right now, the team has only announced their findings onto a radio show and no other announcements have been made so the jury is still out as too whether their claims are completely true.
The team did claim to have samples of at least one of the metal books, one golden plate and several small statues that they will be submitting to professional testing so hopefully this will give us answers shortly.
2nd Director Of Lockheed Skunkwork’s Shocking Comments About UFO Technology
2nd Director Of Lockheed Skunkwork’s Shocking Comments About UFO Technology
It’s quite remarkable how many verified statements we have regarding UFOs (unidentified flying objects) and extraterrestrials from people who have held the highest positions possible within the government, military, academia, politics and more. To be honest, it’s overwhelming, and when you put all of those statements together with all of the previously classified documentation that has been released over the past few years, it paints a startling picture. Anybody who has done even a fair amount of research, and adheres to the philosophy of “condemnation without investigation is the height of ignorance,” would not be able to deny this, and I have yet to come across someone who has done the research that still subjects this topic to the “conspiracy theory” realm.
To view a fraction of these verified quotes, and documents, more you can click HERE.
Below is an example, and a video I’ve used many times before, as it is an extremely powerful statement. I apologize if you’ve seen it before, but it really hits home. There really is an “abundant amount of evidence.”
Again, to view a fraction of these verified quotes, and documents, more you can click HERE. Apart from all the verified statements that come directly from the source, we also have statement made that cannot be completely verified, but are given a great deal of validity from some very credible people. These are also interesting and worth examining. Some of these quotes comes from Ben Rich.
Rich was the second director of Lockheed Skunkwork’s from 1975-1991. He’s been called the Father of Stealth, having overseen the development of the stealth fighter, the F-117A nighthawk. Before his death, Rich made several shocking open statements about the reality of UFOs and extraterrestrials.
“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.” (1)
“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.” (1)
“There are two types of UFOs — the ones we build and the ones ‘they’ build.” (1)
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!” (This seems to be related to Quantum entanglement, you can read more about that here.)
What Are The Sources For These Quotes?
One of the sources is aerospace journalist, James Goodall, who wrote for publications such as Jane’s Defense Weekly, Aviation Week and Space Technology, and Interavia. He is an accomplished speaker specializing in the history, development, and operations of the world’s only Mach 3 capable, manned air breathing aircraft, the SR-71 family of aircraft. (1) (source)(source)(source)
He is also an author, as well as the Associate Curator at the Pacific Aviation Meseum, HI. He was also the restoration manager at the Museum of Flight in Paine Field, Everett, WA.
Goodall interviewed many from the classified black budget world (read more about that world here.) He claimed that some of his contacts told him that “we have things out there that are literally out of this world, better than Star Trek or what you see in the movies.” (1)
From his work alone, James Goodall knew Ben Rich well. In a video interview, Goodall stated that he spoke to Rich approximately 10 days before he died:
“About ten days before he died, I was speaking to Ben on the telephone at the USC Medical Center in LA. And he said, ‘Jim, we have things out in the desert that are fifty years beyond what you can comprehend. They have about forty five hundred people at the Lockheed Skunk works. What have they been doing for the last eighteen or twenty years? They’re building something.'” (1)
Another source comes from John Andrews, who was a legendary Lockheed engineer. He had written to Rich, stating his own belief in UFOs, both manmade and extraterrestrial. Andrews has asked Rich if his own beliefs covered extraterrestrial as well as manmade UFOs. Rich’s reply was as follows:
“Yes, I’m a believer in both categories. I feel everything is possible. Many of our man-made UFOs are Un-Funded Opportunities. There are two types of UFOs, the ones we build, and the ones they build.” (1)
In Rich’s reply, he underlined the U, F, and O in “unfunded opportunities.”
Thirdly, Jan Harzan, a senior executive with IBM, along with Tom Keller, an aerospace engineer who has worked as a computer systems analyst for NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, discusses a talk Ben gave some time ago. On March 23rd, 1993 at a UCLA School of Engineering talk where he was presenting a general history of Sunk Works, he said this:
“We now know how to travel to the stars. There is an error in the equations, and we have figured it out, and now know how to travel to the stars and it won’t take a lifetime to do it. It is time to end all the secrecy on this, as it no longer poses a national security threat, and make the technology available for use in the private sector. There are many in the intelligence community who would like to see this stay in the black and not see the light of day. We now have the technology to take ET home.” (1)
Here is a video of Jan telling the story:
Another source was Bill McDonalds, a forensic illustrator for the aerospace industry, and a good friend of John Andrews (mentioned above). He stated that:
“It was Ben Rich’s opinion that the public should not be told. He believed they could not handle the truth, ever. Only in the last months of his decline did he begin to feel that the international corporate Board of Directors’ dealing with the ‘Subject’ could represent a bigger problem to citizens’ personal freedoms under the United States Constitution than the presence of off world visitors themselves.” (1)
Last but not least, Mr. Don Phillips, a CIA contractor who worked with Lockheed Skunkworks and the USAF. He was one of hundreds of other people with verified credentials who made headlines several years ago at a conference which took place at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C.
He confirms Ben Rich’s statements and beliefs in an interview that you can watch here.
The latest version of this type of major press conference was the Citizens Hearing on disclosure. It took place from April 29 to May 3, 2013 where researchers, activists, and military/agency/political witnesses representing ten countries gave testimony in Washington, DC to six former members of the United States Congress. Their testimony was about events and evidence which point to an extraterrestrial presence engaging the human race and the planet. You can read more about that here.
When it comes to the aerospace industry, UFOs are of high interest. For example, Mike Gold – Director of Operations for Bigelow Aerospace – was recently asked about Bigelow’s involvement with UFO reports. He stated that it’s an issue that “deserves serious attention,” and that he is glad someone is taking these UFO reports. He did mention that he cannot comment on what they do with the reports.

Belief in UFOs is a global phenomenon, with millions of people subscribed to ideas of unidentified flying objects, aliens, abductions and government conspiracies about the likes of Roswell and Area 51.
A survey from the National Geographic Society in 2012 showed 36% of Americans (around 80 million people) believe UFOs exist. A further 47% said they were undecided, while just 17% gave a firm no.
While the survey used UFO in the strictest sense, ie not aliens visiting our planet but flying objects we cannot scientifically account for, the ardent beliefs some people hold is indicative of a wider phenomenon psychologically.
And this belief has led to the creation of World UFO Day on 2 July, an event set up in 2001 to commemorate the supposed UFO crash in Roswell in 1947.
Susan Krauss Whitbourne, professor of Psychological and Brain Sciences at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, says evidence suggests certain personality traits make people far more likely to believe in UFOs and all that goes along with it.
She told IBTimes UK the data suggests people who are open to new ideas are more likely to believe in UFOs. Krauss Whitbourne said: "You get the sense that there's kind of a dimension of suggestibility, so if you're high on that spectrum ... [you may be more] willing to entertain new ideas and fantasies. You start to get into the domain where people believe things that seem highly improbable."
One study that looked into the belief in alien abductions used a false memory test to show a correlation between susceptibility to lures and belief in abductions. In another test called the Australian Sheep-Goat Test, researchers assessed belief in paranormal activities – those who were termed "sheep" believed, while those who did not were termed "goats".
"I was impressed by the personality study because that really puts it into a context psychological phenomenon we can understand that people vary in this openness to experiences," she said. "I think people like to think about all possibilities and therefore are open to these ideas, but are maybe also more vulnerable."
Krauss Whitbourne said people like to look for a larger meaning or purpose and it is this sort of "playfulness" involved in more susceptible personality types that can then become more extreme.
While largely there is no detrimental effect, when the belief becomes something more, problems can arise. She said: "As something you want to entertain as a fun thing to think, there's no really harm in it. If you go really far along the continuum, you reach delusion beliefs those are problematic.
The ever-increasing popularity of social networks and websites dedicated to UFOs has also fanned the flames to some extent – an outlet that has allowed people from across the globe to connect and become a community. "People have more of an outlet now. You can find people to listen to you but you can also get information that feeds those beliefs you already have," she said.
Once this belief system is in place, Krauss Whitbourne added, it can be difficult to see things with an unbiased view point. She said: "I think people who are going to be sceptical will always be sceptical and vice versa. Once you have a belief system, you fit the facts into that belief system, so I doubt if anyone is looking at it rationally.
"This continuum idea is really important. It's like a gateway drug – people might say 'I've had a psychic experience' and continue on from there. Once you start going down that path you're going to find a lot of confirmatory evidence if that's what you're looking for."
And it is this where evidence becomes skewed. Pointing to a recent example where conspiracy theorists pointed to pyramids on Mars being evidence of an ancient civilisation, Krauss Whitbourne said people will use these small scraps to reinforce their beliefs.
She said: "It's the uncritical nature of the judgments people make or the conclusions people reach. Because if you want to believe something and go down that pathway and not be critical. And it is important to maintain a healthy scepticism.
"In true scientific scepticism, that would be that you let the data drive the conclusions. If you go in wanting to believe something, it's going to be pretty hard for you to take that hypothesis-testing approach."
NASA seals a deal with NNSA to use Nukes to destroy Comets and Asteroids posing threat to Earth
NASA seals a deal with NNSA to use Nukes to destroy Comets and Asteroids posing threat to Earth
NASA seals a deal with NNSA and aims at using nukes to deflect Comets and Asteroids that pose threat to Earth
To avert the extinction of human race via doomsday Asteroid or Comet, NASA has joined hands with NNSA to take precautionary steps and deflect the planetary objects from banging onto Earth.
You may have seen a heart wrenching scene in many sci-fi movies, where a Comet is hurtling towards the Earth and the hero, fighting against all odds, plants a nuclear device on it to deflect it away from Earth.
It seems NASA has something similar in mind. According to a report published in the New York Times last week, NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration) made an announcement that it has just sealed a deal with the NNSA (National Nuclear Security Administration) with the major aim of using nuclear weapons or ‘nukes’to deflect the stray Comets and Asteroids which pose a threat to planet Earth.
NNSA, is a division of Department of Energy which is responsible “for enhancing national security through the military application of nuclear science”.
For quite some time, both the agencies were independently trying to understand how nuclear weapons can be put into use to deflect the asteroids or comets so as to avoid the fatal collision with Earth.
This collaboration will now help the rocket specialists from NASA and nuclear scientists from NNSA to work together and thereby accelerate their joint efforts towards national security.
While speaking to the New York Times, Bruce Betts, Director of science and technology at the Planetary Society said: “Often, these agencies focus on their own pieces of the puzzle, so anything that brings them together is a good thing.”
It was just a couple of years back, in 2013, when a 60-foot wide Chelyabinsk meteor exploded over Russia. The alarming fact is that none of the space agency could see this meteor coming towards Earth. The surprise impact resulted into a widespread damage and injuries and it was reported that about 1,500 people were injured and about 7,000 buildings were damaged.
Further, this year in March, another asteroid, 2014 EC, had reached within 38,300 miles of Earth.
Space scientists believe that there could be millions of asteroids that are moving near Earth. For now scientists have been able to detect only a few of them. According to scientists it is these undetected asteroids which pose a danger to the planet Earth.
Researchers believe Chelyabinsk impact occurred due to a relatively smaller meteor and it actually brings a question that if the meteor was much larger then what would have been the possible consequences. Scientists are not sure what would have been the impact however they believe that a precautionary step can be put in place by deflecting these dangerous meteors, comets and asteroids by just “nuking them”.
As per scientists they have already mapped the large sized planetary bodies and these do not pose any major threat in the near future. At the same time even the smaller rocks and comets will not cause any major catastrophic damage to Earth. The medium sized comets and asteroids, ranging anywhere between 164 and 192 feet in diameter, are the major cause of scientist’s concern, as these pose a threat to the planet.
Researchers have given suggestions to blow these medium sized asteroids and thus avoid it from colliding with Earth. However, blowing the medium sized asteroids could result in the formation of rock fragments and it could worsen the situation on Earth if the asteroid is quite close to the planet.
An improvised solution here would be to use a nuclear weapon to deflect the asteroid from its path thus averting the collision. Scientists have also come up with some other solutions which include using gravity tractors, or high-speed spacecraft, or even laser to deflect the asteroid from colliding onto Earth.
New York Times further also mentioned, that way back in 2007, a NASA study had already suggested using nuclear bombs for deflecting the asteroids from colliding with Earth.
The collaboration between NASA and NNSA will mark the first official ‘Asteroid Day’ which falls on June 30. This day marks the anniversary of the 1908 impact of an asteroid in Siberia which resulted in wiping out some 800 square miles of forest.
Scientists hope that an “Asteroid Day” will succeed in reaching out to the government as well as common people and in general raise an awareness of the threat posed by the near-Earth objects. Scientists want the government to understand the gravity of the situation and thus develop a better plan to detect and track these dangerous planetary objects.
DARPA Engineering Organisms To Transform Mars Into Earth-Like Planet
DARPA Engineering Organisms To Transform Mars Into Earth-Like Planet
(Photo By Nasa/Getty Images)
WASHINGTON (CBS DC) — Scientists at the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) are looking to create engineered organisms to eventually transform Mars into a more Earth-like planet hospitable to human life.
The DARPA goal of terraforming the Red Planet includes plans to heat up and potentially thicken Mars’ atmosphere by planting and growing green, photosynthesizing plants, bacteria and algae on the barren landscape, Vice Motherboard reports.
In order to allow for human life to not be confined to indoor activities, Mars’ climate and surface would need to undergo drastic changes to avoid its planet-wide dust storms, thin atmosphere and low gravity. Mars is also further from the sun, dropping average temperatures to -122 degrees Fahrenheit, according to NASA data.
But DARPA researchers are optimistic that the slow process can be successful, allowing for the creation of organisms to gradually transform Mars into something more like Earth.
“For the first time, we have the technological toolkit to transform not just hostile places here on Earth, but to go into space not just to visit, but to stay,” Alicia Jackson, deputy director of DARPA’s new Biological Technologies Office said Monday at a DARPA-hosted biotech conference, Motherboard reports.
Jackson and fellow DARPA researchers are attempting to ease the process of creating genetically engineered organisms outside of e. coli and yeast – commonly manufactured synthetic biology products.
“There are anywhere from 30 million to 30 billion organisms on this Earth. We use two right now for engineering biology,” said Jackson. “I want to use any organism that has properties I want—I want to quickly map it and quickly engineer it. If you look at genome annotation software today, it’s not built to quickly find engineer able systems [and genes]. It’s built to look for an esoteric and interesting thing I can publish an academic paper on.”
Jackson and its DARPA research partners created a software called DTA GView, dubbed the “Google Maps of genomes,” enabling immediate pinpointing of gene locations in genomes.
“This torrent of genomic data we’re now collecting is awesome, except they sit in databases, where they remain data, not knowledge. Very little genetic information we have is actionable,” she said. “With this, the goal is to, within a day, sequence and find where I can best engineer an organism.”
Testing of the synthetic organism project could be tested here on earth in the wake of a natural or man-made disaster, allowing for analysis of whether they could survive in tough environments and restore themselves to a pre-disaster climate.
Two physicists at the University of Southern Mississippi – Lawrence Mead and Harry Ringermacher – announced today (June 26, 2015) that our universe might not only be expanding outward from the Big Bang, but also oscillating or “ringing” at the same time. The Astronomical Journal published their paper on this topic in April.
As many know, scientists today believe our universe – all space, time and matter – began with the Big Bang some 13 billion years ago. Since then, the universe has been expanding to the size it is today. Yet, the universe as a whole has self-gravity, which tries to pull all the matter – all the stars, gas, galaxies, and mysterious dark matter – back together. This internal gravitational pull slows down the universe’s expansion. Mead said in a statement from Southern Miss:
The new finding suggests that the universe has slowed down and speeded up, not just once, but 7 times in the last 13.8 billion years, on average emulating dark matter in the process.
The ringing has been decaying and is now very small – much like striking a crystal glass and hearing it ring down.
The artist’s illustration at the top of this post illustrates the new finding. According to Ringermacher and Mead, the wave amplitude in this illustration is highly exaggerated, but the frequency is roughly correct according to their study and their understanding of the way in which the universe oscillates or “rings.”
Ringermacher and Mead said they’ve determined that this oscillation is not a wave moving through the universe, such as a gravitational wave, but rather it is a “wave of the universe.” That is the universe as a whole is doing it.
Compare the illustration at top to the artist’s illustration below, which represents the current model of the universe (notice: no oscillation).
Artist’s concept representing the events of the Big Bang from the beginning of time to the present day as described by the current, accepted Big Bang model known as Lambda Cold Dark Matter. The Greek letter Lambda stands for Einstein’s ‘cosmological constant,’ which, in this theory, is responsible for the acceleration of the universe. The outline of the “bell-shaped” universe represents its expanding size. The transition time is the point in time at which the bell shape shifts from going inward to outward from left to right.

Ringermacher said he and Mead made their discovery accidentally when, through their collaboration on dark matter modeling of galaxies, they found a new way of plotting a classic textbook graph describing the scale of the universe against its age (lookback time) that did not depend on one’s prior choice of models of the universe – as was traditional. He said:
The standard graph, the Hubble diagram, is constructed by astronomers observing the distances of Type 1A Supernovae that serve as ‘standard candles’ for measuring the expansion of the universe.
Analyzing this new plot to locate the transition time of the universe, we found there was more than one such time – in fact multiple oscillations with a frequency of about 7 cycles over the lifetime of the universe.
It is space itself that has been speeding up its expansion followed by slowing down 7 times since creation.
Mead and Ringermacher say this finding must ultimately be verified by independent analyses, preferably of new supernovae data, to confirm its reality. In the meantime, their work into the “ringing” of the universe continues.
Have you communicated with extraterrestrials, or visited other planets? Or do you have a vague feeling, perhaps even a memory, of having been abducted by aliens, or of traveling in a spaceship before being returned to wake in your own bed at home? Do you believe you can communicate, telepathically, with beings from other worlds while you sleep, waking up a little wiser or, alternatively, feeling a bit disconnected as if something is missing from your life? In summary, how do you feel about your alien encounters – are they real, or dreams?
Here is a example of one persons Experience,..Lea describes a re-occurring dream while in Bed.
I can’t move. I can’t breathe. A sense of dread and panic washes over me as I realize, There’s someone here. It’s pitch black in the middle of the night, and I’m getting yanked out of bed; something or someone is pulling my legs. I try to fight it, but I can’t, nor am I able to come to full consciousness. I want to scream but no sound comes out of my mouth. This is it. I’m going to die tonight.
The nightmares wouldn’t stop — the sudden, bizarre, unsettling nightmares. They were always the same; they seemed almost real:
Lea was sitting in a booth in a small, empty room with gray walls. A monotonic voice behind her said: “Don’t move, or you might be hurt.”
She felt paralyzed. She heard clicking noises, like an X-ray machine. Suddenly she was lying on a table. A bright light shone in her eyes. She sensed people moving around, examining her.
Then she was sitting up, facing a short creature so hideous she could not look at its face. From a box the strange being removed a shiny needle. At the tip was a silver marble. The creature moved closer toward Lea.
At that point Lea would jerk awake in her bed, terrified and drenched with sweat. Her screams would awaken her parents. But her mother, Lea recalls, would always admonish her: “It’s just a nightmare. Everybody has them. You shouldn’t watch all that scary stuff on TV.”
That’s one of the more terrifying experiences I’ve had during my sleep. I never had night terrors as a young child, but as I hit my pre-teens, I started to experience what’s called sleep paralysis—the in-between stage of being asleep and awake, when you’re aware of your surroundings but feel completely paralyzed.
Researchers have come up with a explanation for all of this,..its called Sleep Paralysis.
What Is Sleep Paralysis?
Sleep paralysis is a feeling of being conscious but unable to move. It occurs when a person passes between stages of wakefulness and sleep. During these transitions, you may be unable to move or speak for a few seconds up to a few minutes. During sleep, your body alternates between REM (rapid eye movement) and NREM (non-rapid eye movement) sleep. One cycle of REM and NREM sleep lasts about 90 minutes. NREM sleep occurs first and takes up to 75% of your overall sleep time. During NREM sleep, your body relaxes and restores itself. At the end of NREM, your sleep shifts to REM. Your eyes move quickly and dreams occur, but the rest of your body remains very relaxed. Your muscles are “turned off” during REM sleep. If you become aware before the REM cycle has finished, you may notice that you cannot move or speak.
When Does Sleep Paralysis Usually Occur?
Sleep paralysis usually occurs at one of two times. If it occurs while you are falling asleep, it’s called hypnagogic or predormital sleep paralysis. If it happens as you are waking up, it’s called hypnopompic or postdormital sleep paralysis.
What Can I Do About Sleep Paralysis? Web MD says:
There’s no need to fear nighttime demons or alien abductors. If you have occasional sleep paralysis, you can take steps at home to control this disorder. Start by making sure you get enough sleep. Do what you can to relieve stress in your life — especially just before bedtime. Try new sleeping positions if you sleep on your back. And be sure to see your doctor if sleep paralysis routinely prevents you from getting a good night’s sleep. http://www.webmd.com/sleep-disorders/guide/sleep-paralysis?page=2
To those who suffer from this condition its not very comforting and what if there is more to this phenomenon than what the “Researchers” claim?
Dreams are really interesting and really complicated in my mind. Most people rule dreams out as conjurings of the mind, but I am of the opinion that the dream state can transport your “mind” to another, higher dimension (call it astral travel or whatever). I don’t think that this is necessarily dreaming, it just occurs while you are in the deep state of consciousness where or near where dreams occur. Let me explain, there are 4 different types of consciousness, or 4 different types of waves that one’s brain produces during different actions.
Beta waves: the brain produces these when you are awake and active. Doing chores and such. 12-15 cycles per second and up.
Alpha waves: 6-14 cycles per second, this is where daydreaming, nocturnal dreaming and hypnosis occur. Also, if you believe in that stuff (I happen to), psychic experiences may occur here as well.
Theta waves: Approximately 4-8 cycles per second here. This, it is speculated, is where our “emotional experiences” are recorded and where most psychic activity takes place.
Delta waves: These are during unconsciousness or deep dreamless sleep, anything less than 4-5 cycles per second.
Now, during sleep one generally quickly through beta, alpha, theta and into delta for a short time (transition takes like 30 minutes, generally, and you would stay int delta for like 90 minutes). Then you would cycle up to theta and alpha where you would dream for awhile. That process would continue through the night.
I believe that during the time spent in the Theta area, one is able to mentally travel into another, higher dimension. This is supported by quantum mechanics which says that our brain sees much more than our eyes can process (like having a camera with a cloudy lens). So, I would say that the “astral” dimension is right here on earth, but we are unable to see it with our eyes due to their out-of-date ness, but we are able to see it with our mind, which can be “freed” (so to speak) when our physical body is asleep and dormant.
The Nightmare, a new horror documentary from director Rodney Ascher, previously known for Room 237 (a documentary that analyzes—or rather, over-analyzes—Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining). In The Nightmare, Ascher brings horror to level 11, with reenactments that are as scary as, if not more than, horror feature films. His eight talking head subjects tell stories of their recurring nightmarish experiences with this ‘sleep disorder’—from lurking shadow men haunting their bedrooms, to alien abductions, to one guy even experiencing the pain of his dick being chopped up by a claw machine. (That last one being undoubtedly the most startling of all the reenactments.)
The Nightmare | Official Trailer
For those who have never experienced this phenomenon, the documentary may seem like a bunch of loonies making up wild tales. For those who have, it feels all too real.
In The Nightmare, however, sleep paralysis is something more supernatural, or demonic—a version more in line with the stories that have been around for centuries. Many people believed it was a visit from an incubus, or some sort of alien abduction.
Experienced by millions as supernatural assault, sleep paralysis (SP) often includes realistic, and often frightening, hallucinations that are projected into the waking world.
Here is a Great Read on one persons lifetime of experiences:
Alien Nightmares: Screen Memories of UFO Alien Abductions
Extraordinary true-life chronicles of a UFO alien abductee as revealed through vividly creepy dreams and screen memories. Walk the scary trails with me, haunted by creatures who followed me for decades with night terrors, monstrous visitors, bizarre visions, and fright nights that had me turning on all the lights afraid to go to sleep.
Journey with me into Alien Nightmares full of the dreams, memories, and vivid imagery which led me to believe that extraterrestrials had come calling.
I lived in an amazing world full of terrifying creatures, whirlwinds, bizarre tasks and puzzles, and night visitors who took me and left me feeling drugged. UFOs flew in and out of my dreams for decades and I’d wake up knowing that this dream was not like the others, especially when they left me utterly terrified. There was no such thing as a safe place and I knew it.
The author makes very compelling arguments and offers some really disturbing insights to back up her claims.
One thing I found interesting was the fact that even as a young girl, her dreams bothered her enough that she felt driven to keep a journal of them. The extent to which she is able to correlate her own dreams with the dozens of cases of UFO documented activity is also compelling. The descriptions of feeling drugged after the ‘whirlwind’ dreams was probably the most convincing evidence, in my opinion. I would have liked to see some more scientific evidence; for example, positive pregnancy tests for the two alleged pregnancies she suspects were alien terminated. The connections she makes between alien activity and religious history are not something new.
Over all, this book was a disturbing read. I was a little overwhelmed by the many different dream sequences. It also seemed to me that the “screen memories” were probably a little less traumatic than the real memories would have been. I think that readers who have had similar experiences, will appreciate this book. Whether you are a believer or not, you will find this an interesting read. The author makes it clear that her work is based on memories of dreams, not actual remembered experiences; however, this is not fiction. This is a full-length work, not a short story.
If you are a believer, you’ll relate to these memories from an abductee. If you are a skeptic, you’ll see a child with a big imagination and an adult who experiences extraordinarily vivid nightmares. Either way, God help you if the nightmares ever come and haunt you…

Hubble views a bizarre cosmic quartet
This new NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope image shows a gathering of four cosmic companions. This quartet forms part of a group of galaxies known as the Hickson Compact Group 16, or HCG 16 — a galaxy group bursting with dramatic star formation, tidal tails, galactic mergers and black holes.
This quartet is composed of (from left to right) NGC 839, NGC 838, NGC 835, and NGC 833 — four of the seven galaxies that make up the entire group. They shine brightly with their glowing golden centres and wispy tails of gas,* set against a background dotted with much more distant galaxies.
Compact groups represent some of the densest concentrations of galaxies known in the Universe, making them perfect laboratories for studying weird and wonderful phenomena. Hickson Compact Groups in particular, as classified by astronomer Paul Hickson in the 1980s, are surprisingly numerous, and are thought to contain an unusually high number of galaxies with strange properties and behaviours.
HCG 16 is certainly no exception. The galaxies within it are bursting with dramatic knots of star formation and intensely bright central regions. Within this single group, astronomers have found two LINERs, one Seyfert 2 galaxy and three starburst galaxies.
These three types of galaxy are all quite different, and can each help us to explore something different about the cosmos. Starbursts are dynamic galaxies that produce new stars at much greater rates than their peers. LINERs (Low-Ionisation Nuclear Emission-line Regions) contain heated gas at their cores, which spew out radiation. In this image NGC 839 is a LINER-type and luminous infrared galaxy and its companion NGC 838 is a LINER-type galaxy with lots of starburst activity and no central black hole.
The remaining galaxies, NGC 835 and NGC 833, are both Seyfert 2 galaxies which have incredibly luminous cores when observed at other wavelengths than in the visible light, and are home to active supermassive black holes.
The X-ray emission emanating from the black hole within NGC 833 (far right) is so high that it suggests the galaxy has been stripped of gas and dust by past interactions with other galaxies. It is not alone in having a violent history — the morphology of NGC 839 (far left) is likely due to a galactic merger in the recent past, and long tails of glowing gas can be seen stretching away from the galaxies on the right of the image.
This new image uses observations from Hubble’s Wide Field Planetary Camera 2, combined with data from the ESO Multi-Mode Instrument installed on the European Southern Observatory’s New Technology Telescope in Chile. A version of this image was entered into the Hubble’s Hidden Treasures image processing competition by contestants Jean-Christophe Lambry and Marc Canale.
* A tidal tail is a thin, elongated region of stars and interstellar gas that extends into space from a galaxy. They are a result of the strong gravitational forces around interacting galaxies.
NASA's Great Taboo: Intelligent Extraterrestial Life
NASA's Great Taboo: Intelligent Extraterrestial Life
June 27, 2015- Don’t know about you, but I’m loving those mystery lights on Ceres as NASA’s surveillance probe, Dawn, bears down on the biggest chunk of real estate in the asteroid belt. And not because of the prospects for discovering alien activity – they’re remote, at best – but because of the opportunity to witness, again, the ritual disconnect that characterizes institutional science whenever "The Great Taboo" legitimately insinuates itself into a news cycle.
Let’s go back a few years when, after half a century of logging zilch in the Great ET Radio Signal Experiment, SETI pioneer Jill Tarter proposed a new name for their endeavors, the Search for Extraterrestrial Technology (SETT). This was a tacit grudging concession that maybe radio astronomers had been working with a flawed model. In 2011, the International Journal of Astrobiology published a paper by astrophysicists Martin Elvis and Duncan Forgan proposing an even more specific tack, that maybe Earthlings ought to consider scanning the asteroid belt for evidence of ET “macro-engineering projects.” Translation: mining operations. Made sense. After all, they noted, asteroids are repositories for raw material like gold, platinum and silver, the kind of stuff you'd likely need to repair or refuel extended planetary missions.
And, as Forgan would hypothesize two years later in the IJA, ET wouldn’t even have to bend the known laws of physics to reach the rocky debris zone between Jupiter and Mars, no matter which part of the Milky Way he/she/it came from. Upon crunching the numbers, Forgan and a mathematician hypothesized that robotic technologies could have mapped this galaxy well below light speeds, in about 10 million years. On the cosmic scale of time, that's no big deal.
So here's what's going on. In 2007, NASA hurls an unmanned vehicle toward the asteroid belt to look for clues to the formation of our solar system. Destination: “dwarf planets” Vesta and Ceres. Dawn enters a 14-month mapping orbit over Vesta in 2011, then moves on toward the bigger prize. In February, as it closes to within 29,000 miles of Ceres, Dawn’s cameras detect something totally off the charts – lights on the surface. Their luminosity doesn’t appear to be significantly affected by different sun angles. Two months and 25,000 miles closer, their intensity is still unblinking. Planetary scientists are stumped; at the Jet Propulsion Lab’s website, PR flacks do a very savvy thing by letting visitors vote on the most likely suspects: “volcano,” “geyser,” “salt deposit,” “ice,” “rock,” and “other.” Wonder what "other" could be. Hmm. Anyway, we'll get an even better peek by summer’s end, when Dawn dips to within 900 miles of the surface.
No matter what those lights are all about, this sort of suspense is cool. Talk about a teaching opportunity for schools.
Now let’s review some of NASA’s recent headline-grabbing statements. In 2014, given our ongoing exoplanet transiting searches and the impending exploration of more local worlds like Europa, space agency scientists predicted Earthlings will discover ET life within 20 years. That forecast was reiterated just last week at the Astrobiology Science Conference in Chicago. In fact, NASA Associate Administrator for the Science Mission Directorate (there's a mouthful) and former astronaut John Grunsfeld suggested that ET civilizations might already have detected us, the same way we’re locating and confirming the existence of deep-space planets. Quote:
“We put atmospheric signatures that guarantee someone with a large telescope 20 light years away could detect us. If there is life out there, intelligent life, they’ll know we’re here.”
Left unsaid, what none in that sheltered crowd wants to contemplate: And if they discover us before we discover them, maybe they’re already a lot closer than we think. But of course, there was no room in Chicago for a discussion of UFOs. That would be a little too declasse, like farting in church. Oh, and just to make sure nobody got terribly excited, coverage of last week’s Windy City pow-wow also included a canned statement from NASA chief scientist Ellen Stefan. In April, during a discussion about Mars, she drew distinctions between the discovery of biological life and some other silly alternative like, well, the 2011 peer-reviewed paper's "targeted asteroid mining" scenario. “We are not talking about little green men," she insisted. "We are talking about little microbes.”
Stofan could’ve said “intelligent life.” But she went for the gag line instead. Knowing full well how much everybody loves microbes.
Hey, no one wants to look like an idiot as we approach the biggest discovery of all time, wherever that may be. The solution to the Ceres lights will likely fall far short of little green men. But the language we employ as we draw closer to the inevitability doesn't inspire much confidence; it suggests we’re deeply conflicted in our enthusiasm for confirming The Other. Or at least the people at the top of NASA appear to be. Fortunately, we can console ourselves with the knowledge that science and politics never mix.
People (including some scientists) don't always distinguish between low probability events and the results of a string of high probability events where each step takes a finite amount of time. I.e. Just because something takes a long time to develop, it doesn't mean that the result is a low probability event.
Biological evolution is bounded by physical laws and the need for efficiency (in part due to competition); yet life on Earth has found its way into every environment and makes use of every energy-efficient sensing ability (sight & heat detection, touch & hearing, chemical recognition in smell & taste, even the detection of electrical fields and magnetic fields, the latter through at least two means including the recently posited quantum compass in a robins eye.)
Transmission of sensory information requires something like a nervous system. Processing sensory information requires an evolved nervous system, from which intelligence and self-awareness can emerge. So perhaps 'little green men' and humans are not that far removed from single cell organisms in the grand scheme.
“Some physicists say that the future is already written in today, but I think that they are not taking quantum uncertainty seriously. Quantum uncertainty says the future is not determined until it's happened.”
- George F. R. Ellis, Ph.D. Prof. Emeritus, Mathematics Dept., Univ. of Cape Town, South Africa
June 27, 2015 Cape Town, South Africa - A scientist who studied and expanded his mind about the universe at Cambridge University in England and had long dialogues with the young physicist Stephen Hawking about time and space is George F. R. Ellis, Ph.D., Professor Emeritus now in the Mathematics Department at the University of Cape Town in South Africa.
Like Prof. Martin Rees, Prof. Ellis also received a Templeton Prize honoring his profound insights into the cosmos that have led now to his rejecting the theory that evolved in Albert Einstein mind that space and time are entangled in such a way that time is an illusion.
The implication was that past, present and future are one and that the future is locked in from the Alpha to the Omega. Prof. Ellis says that does not make sense to the reality of existence as we know it. And his rebellion against Einstein’s perspective is the cover story in the June 2015 Discover magazine entitled, “Mysteries in Time: Is the past a myth? Is the future set? Is it all an illusion? Prof. Ellis answers, “The past is real and can have had an effect on us today but the future cannot influence us because it does not yet exist.”
Prof. Ellis is convinced that the key to whether the future is fixed or not, is in the quantum realm where uncertainty changes to certainty — the collapse of the wave function — when there is an observation by consciousness. At the quantum level, Schroedinger's cat is both dead and alive inside a box until Someone Looks in the box.
Observation causes the collapse of the uncertain wave function into a certainty — dead or alive. But the problem is that no one knows what the collapse mechanism is that produces a certainty from many uncertain possibilities. Figuring that out is what Prof. Ellis is trying to do.
George F. R. Ellis, Ph.D., Cosmologist and Professor Emeritus, Mathematics Dept., University of Cape Town, South Africa:“Einstein crystallized the idea of a 4-dimensional space/time with three space dimensions and one time dimension.
What he discovered is that if you change your velocity, you get a different splitting up of the space and time in 4 dimensional space. Time depends on how things move. That was his big discovery.
THE VELOCITY GETTING NEAR THE SPEED OF LIGHT IS WHERE IT APPROACHES INFINITE MASS, AND TIME WOULD STOP.
Yes, what would happen is if you could move at the speed of light, Einstein began thinking about a clock and what he thought about was that he saw the clock as it hit twelve. And he thought, ‘If I was moving away at the speed of light, this particle of light which is bringing the information traveling towards me and I would be traveling away at the speed of light! (laughs) And so I would always see the clock at twelve. Time would stop.
The Mystery of Time
COULD YOU EXPLAIN FOR A GENERAL AUDIENCE YOUR PERCEPTION ON QUANTUM COLLAPSES HAPPENING ALL THE TIME AT THIS MOMENT, AT THIS EDGE BETWEEN THIS EVER-PRESENT TICKING, AS I SPEAK, EACH WORD IS GOING BEHIND LIKE THIS WALL …
AND THEN ON THE OTHER SIDE IS THAT ALWAYS CONSTANT FUTURE THAT SEEMS TO COME AT US, BUT THERE IS THIS BORDER IN BETWEEN.
Yeah. Quantum physics gives us the wave function and the wave function gives us the probabilities of the future, but it does not tell you what the outcome will be. The set of probable futures that comes and crystallizes into a specific thing, which happens and the moment that which that takes place is the instant in which the indefinite future becomes a definite past.
Quantum uncertainty is changing to definiteness all the time. So, for instance, every time that a photon hits a leaf, it frees a specific electron from a specific molecule and travels down and releases chemicals, which turn into sugar and release energy into the plant. So the indefinite future becomes a definite past.
The same as light hits a wall and then receives energy and heats up. All the time everywhere, the indefinite future is becoming the definite past. It’s happening all the time.
THIS QUANTUM COLLAPSE ALWAYS HAPPENING EVERYWHERE AND THEREFORE, THE FUTURE IS UNKNOWN UNTIL ALL OF THESE COLLAPSES — THE PHOTON HITS THE LEAF AND SO FORTH. WHY IS THIS CONSIDERED TO BE SO CONTROVERSIAL IN THE FACE OF EINSTEINIAN PHYSICS?
(Laughs) Einstein — what is controversial about it is that we don’t know the mechanism by which this takes place. We do not understand how quantum uncertainty gives way to classical certainty. That’s the collapse of the wave function. There are various theories about it and some people try to say that it does not happen. And they end up with the quantum Multiverse, which is a very strange thing in which every time a measurement takes place, they think that the whole universe splits into two, which I think is rather strange.
I take a more conservative position that there is a collapse of the wave function due to some collapse mechanism and we do not know at this time what that collapse mechanism is. But I would believe that there is such a mechanism.
If Einstein Is Right About A Fixed Future, How Could There Be Free Will?
COULD WE SHIFT TO THE PHILOSOPHICAL PERSPECTIVE THAT IF EINSTEIN WERE RIGHT, THEN ESSENTIALLY TIME AS AN ILLUSION WOULD IMPLY THAT THE FUTURE IS ALREADY SOMEHOW THERE AND WE’RE JUST MOVING THROUGH IT, ALPHA TO OMEGA.
IT SEEMS THAT WOULD TAKE AWAY ALL CONSCIOUSNESS HAVING FREE WILL.
That is correct, if that is true. And that is one of the reasons why I think Einstein has to be wrong.
THEN HOW HAS THIS PHYSICS PERSISTED WITHOUT OTHER SCIENTISTS RAISING THE QUESTION: THIS DOESN’T MAKE ANY SENSE TO THE UNIVERSE WE’RE IN?
Well, I’ve been thinking about the relationship of physics to complexity and the way that complexity emerges. And there is a fundamental thing that is happening and in fact I have just completed a book about this. The whole of this picture is built on the idea that everything that happens in the universe happens bottom up: - particle physics underlies nuclear physics - underlies atomic physics - underlies chemistry - underlies physiology - underlies the brain.
So, the idea is that all causation proceeds upwards. Now that is not the way things work in the real universe. There is equally a flow of causation downwards from the biggest scheme down to the smaller levels. And that is what was not taken into account by many physicists and I don’t think Einstein ever thought about this.
But If Future Blank, How Is Precognition Possible? See "Feeling the Future" in websites below.
IN MY OWN LIFE, I HAVE BEEN SAVED FROM A MORTAL SITUATION ON A ROAD WITH CARS BY SOMETHING COMING INTO MY MIND AND MAKING ME DRIVE MY CAR OVER TO THE SIDE OF THE ROAD AND SIT THERE NOT KNOWING THAT WHAT WAS GOING TO HAPPEN WAS A BIG SEMI-TRUCK OUT OF CONTROL WOULD BE COMING AROUND A BEND AND THAT WHATEVER IT WAS THAT MADE ME PARK ON THE ROAD WAITING AND THEN SEEING IN HORROR THAT IF I HAD KEPT GOING I WOULD HAVE BEEN DEAD.
Mountain road image by Solomon Gabriel, Fotolia.com.
HOW DO WE DEFINE THESE MOMENTS IN LIFE WHERE SOMETHING SEES A FUTURE THAT IS GOING TO BE MORTAL AND SAVES US?
I cannot answer that one. I accept your description of what happened to you. Someone needs to collect statistics on these kinds of things and try to see if it happens often or? One has to keep statistics of cases when people may have had such a premonition and driven to the side of the road and nothing happened. (laughs) And you tend to remember the ones where you got it right and forget the ones where you did not get it right.
But you are asking me if it could be premonitions, connections. I’m open minded that it’s possible such can happen.
WHAT I’M RAISING IS: IS IT POSSIBLE THAT THERE IS A HYBRID BETWEEN EINSTEIN AND YOUR HYPOTHESIS SO THAT THERE IS SOMETHING GOING ON AT THAT STRANGE BORDER BETWEEN THE TICKING PRESENT AND THE ONRUSHING FUTURE — THAT THERE IS SOME PART OF THE ALWAYS FORMING FUTURE THAT IS THERE IN SOME WAY AND CAN HAVE INFLUENCE ON THAT TICKING PRESENT, LIKE PULLING OVER WHEN A TRUCK IS COMING AROUND A BORDER BECAUSE SOMETHING IN ME DETECTED SOMETHING COMING.
Yeah. You hadn’t seen anything? You hadn’t heard anything before it happened? It was completely out of sight before it happened, right?
Yeah, the mind is always trying to predict what will happen. It’s always looking for patterns of the future and so on, but it sounds like in your case, you can’t explain it that way. This is not the same as the Einstein future fixed and unchanging. And the fact that you would do that (pull over) would have to be written back to the beginning of the universe. I simply don’t believe that.
(laughs) RIGHT. IT MAKES NO SENSE BECAUSE IT TAKES ALL FREE WILL FROM CONSCIOUSNESS FROM ONE END OF THE UNIVERSE TO THE OTHER.
4th Time Dimension and Gravity Waves
This illustration depicts the gravitational waves generated by two black holes orbiting each other. Illustration by NASA.
IS THERE ANY POSSIBILITY IN YOUR MATHEMATICAL PHYSICS MIND THAT THERE COULD BE SOME HYBRID THAT IS CLOSER TO A TRUTH. THAT THERE IS SOME KIND OF WRITING GOING ON IN THE FUTURE, SO TO SPEAK, AND WE’RE MOVING TO IT WHEN IT’S NEAR THIS BORDER BETWEEN PAST, PRESENT AND FUTURE?
It seems unlikely to me, but as I said I’m an open minded guy (laughs). And I’m prepared to try to think about it.
THERE MIGHT BE A RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THE 4TH DIMENSION OF TIME AND GRAVITY WAVES?
The gravity waves are traveling through space time and their oscillations in space time and so the 4th Dimension is involved. It’s all space/time curvature.
WHY IS IT THAT WE’RE IN 2015 GOING FORWARD AND AS I UNDERSTAND IT, WE STILL HAVE NOT DETECTED GRAVITY WAVES?
We’ve got some fantastic gravitation wave detectors coming online and they might detect gravitational waves directly in the next couple of years.
Direct detection? That will happen probably in the next couple of years, ten years maximum.
I’VE ALWAYS WONDERED WHY IS IT THAT GRAVITATIONAL WAVES HAVE PERSISTED MATHEMATICALLY, BUT WE’VE NEVER BEEN ABLE TO DETECT THEM DIRECTLY?
It’s because the amplitude is so incredibly small.
ISN’T A WAVE FUNCTION A FREQUENCY?
It’s a mixture of frequencies. It’s a combination of frequencies all joined together.
JUMPING THE TRACK TO PHILOSOPHY AGAIN, THERE IS IN MANY DIFFERENT RELIGIOUS TEXTS THIS CONCEPT: IN THE BEGINNING WAS THE WORD — WORD IS INTERPRETED AS SOUND FREQUENCY OR FREQUENCIES. IT IS THE IMPRESSION THAT WHETHER YOU ARE LOOKING AT THE PERIODIC TABLE OR ANYTHING ELSE IN PHYSICS THAT FREQUENCIES SEEM TO BE AT THE BASE OF EVERYTHING.
Yeah, waves are at the base of almost everything and that means frequencies.
IF YOU CONCENTRATE, FOR EXAMPLE, ENERGY ON A SPECIFIC FREQUENCY TO CHANGE IT A LITTLE BIT UP OR DOWN, YOU CAN DO IT DEPENDING ON WHETHER YOU RESONATE WITH THAT FREQUENCY OR YOU ARE IN CHAOS OR CONTRADICTION TO THAT FREQUENCY?
Yes, I could accept that description, yeah.
Time of Universe's Existence: Infinite Expansion or Collapse?
DO YOU THINK THE UNIVERSE WILL KEEP EXPANDING ENDLESSLY? OR DO YOU THINK THAT IT IS GOING TO REPEAT A COLLAPSE ON ITSELF?
It will expand forever.
AND WHAT IS INFINITE EXPANSION INTO? (laughs)
It’s not into anything. It’s just getting bigger. This is one of the difficult things to explain, but the universe does not have to be situated in a bigger space. It’s just all that there is and it’s just getting bigger.”
"Feeling the Future: Experimental Evidence for Anomalous Retroactive Influences on Cognition and Affect," 2010-2011 by Daryl Bem, Cornell University, Journal of Personality and Social Psychology about statistical evidence for precognition: http://dbem.ws/FeelingFuture.pdf
All over the globe, people are recording extremely loud sounds coming from the sky. In many instances, these ominous noises sound like someone is blowing a trumpet. So what are we supposed to make of these “apocalyptic” sounds? Should we be concerned? Well, what we do know is that this is truly a global phenomenon. In addition to being heard at locations all over the United States and Canada, these sounds have also been recorded in Germany, Hungary, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Sweden, England, Costa Rica, Ukraine and France. If you go to YouTube and type in “strange sounds”, you will literally get hundreds of results from all over the planet. Of course there are many scientists that insist that there must be a “rational explanation” for these strange sounds. Some theories have suggested fracking, “rock bursts”, venting of high-pressure gas, atmospheric pressure or the natural “background noise” of our planet as the causes of these sounds, but so far none of those theories have been proven. But two things seem certain – these noises sure are creepy, and they just keep on happening.
And this phenomenon is now really starting to get a whole lot of attention. Just within the last month, there have been headlines about it in major new sources all over the planet. For instance, the following is a brief excerpt about this phenomenon from an article in the New York Post…
Video clips from around the world have captured an evil-sounding ‘trumpet’ noise coming from the sky — but no one can explain exactly what it is.
A number of people have filmed the bizarre sound over the past 10 years with the latest coming from Germany.
Video of this most recent incident that happened in Germany is posted below. What do you think could possibly be making this noise?…
As I discussed above, similar sounds have been recorded all over the globe in recent years. Very quickly, let me share four examples with you that were recently included in an article by Melissa Dykes.
Tectonic plates grinding –Tectonic plates are pieces of the Earth’s crust and uppermost mantle, together referred to as the lithosphere. The plates are around 100 km (62 mi) thick and consist of two principal types of material: oceanic crust (also called sima from silicon and magnesium) and continental crust (sial from silicon and aluminium).
Atmospheric pressure –Atmospheric pressure is defined as the force per unit area exerted against a surface by the weight of the air above that surface.
Trains shunting –Self explanatory – noise comes from trains in reaction to the track and overhead wires.
Construction –Building works, especially if going on at the same time across a specific area, can led to similar sounds.
Aliens –Can this be an alien lifeform in the sky, perhaps scouring out Earth?
HAARP weapon –Rumors persist that the U.S. government uses secret weapons in the sky for defence and weather modifying, the High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP). This wouldn’t explain the sounds in other countries however…
The Apocalypse and the Seven Trumpets of Heaven –Seven trumpets are sounded, one at a time, to cue apocalyptic events that were seen in the vision of the Revelation of Christ Jesus, by John of Patmos. Somewhat more worrying as it would signal the end of the world…
The scientists at NASA have a different explanation. What they think is being heard is simply the natural background noise that our planet is constantly producing…
According to NASA, it could be the earth’s ‘background noise’.
A statement from the agency said: ‘If humans had radio antennas instead of ears, we would hear a remarkable symphony of strange noises coming from our own planet. Scientists call them “tweeks,” “whistlers” and “sferics.”
‘They sound like background music from a flamboyant science fiction film, but this is not science fiction. Earth’s natural radio emissions are real and, although we’re mostly unaware of them, they are around us all the time.’
To me, that explanation by NASA doesn’t really ring true, but I don’t have a really good explanation either.
So what do you think?
Do you believe that you know what is causing these strange sounds?

Declassified FBI Report Confirms Beings From Other Dimensions Visited Earth
- By Ian Paxton - June 26, 2015
Almost 70 years ago, an FBI special agent wrote a report about the presence of beings from another dimension here on Earth.
The agent—a lieutenant colonel—labeled the report as “a memorandum of importance” and addressed it to “certain scientists of distinction to important aeronautical and military authorities, to a number of public officials and to a few publications.”
This particular report was kept secret until 2011, when the FBI declassified a series of documents and posted them on their FOIA library, The Vault. Although nearly seven decades have passed since it was written, the issues it dealt with are of even greater relevance today.
The anonymous FBI agent expressed his concern with regard to the flying saucer phenomenon; he acknowledged the fact that the UFOs were examples of technology far superior to that of our own and believed that any attempt to attack one would result in deadly retaliation.
In his opinion such an event would undoubtedly have lead to public panic and “international suspicion.”
Here’s a transcript of some of the most important details in the report:
Part of the disks carry crews, others are under remote control.
Their mission is peaceful. The visitors contemplate settling on this plane.
The visitors are human-like but much larger in size.
They are not excarnate Earth people, but come from their own world.
They do NOT come from a “planet” as we use the word, but from an etheric planet which interpenetrates with our own and is not perceptible to us.
The bodies of the visitors, and the craft, automatically materialize on entering the vibratory rate of our dense matter.
The disks posses a type of radiant energy or ray, which will easily disintegrate any attacking ship. They reenter the etheric at will, and so simply disappear from our vision, without a trace
The region from which they come is not the “astral plane”, but corresponds to the Lokas orTalas*. Students of esoteric matters will understand these terms.
They probably can not be reached by radio, but probably can be by radar, if a signal system can be devised for that.
* Loka and tala are Sanskrit terms first used in the metaphysical systems of ancient India. Loosely put, lokameans “place” or “world” while tala means “inferior world.” Every loka is linked to its corresponding tala and can never be separated.
It’s quite interesting to notice that the FBI would quote such esoteric matters in their official papers. Perhaps these metaphysical concepts are closer to reality than previously thought.
The information contained in this report seems to validate the Interdimensional Hypothesis, a theory that proposes an alternative explanation for the UFO phenomenon.
It was based on the ideas of ufologists such as Jacques Valée, who suggested that UFOs are indeed extraterrestrial in nature, but do not come from this reality.
Instead of mastering interstellar travel and visiting us from distant parts of our universe, the UFOs could be caused by the materialization of visitors from alternate realities or dimensions that coexist independently to our own.
This hypothesis is supported by the strange behavior UFOs exhibit, such as the ability to rapidly materialize/dematerialize.
In the words of UFO researcher John Weldon, “the UFO phenomenon simply does not behave like extraterrestrial visitors.”
You can find the report on the official FBI Vault HERE.
Dan Flynn: Well, many have wanted me to make shorter video’s. So, I’ve gone and created a trailer to the long video’s that I do, ever so, enjoy making. If one expects to find all the evidence neatly fit into one cookie jar? That one is in the wrong supermarket. Are UFO’s ‘more real than you’ll ever know?’ Click this link to find out: This is a trailer to: UFO Military Are Landing On Earth
Dan Flynn:Will earth be invaded by aliens from another planet / galaxy before we’re ever told that they even exist? Why are the masses so ignorant to want to continue to believe that intelligent life does not exist outside of earth when so very many thousands of people are coming forward with video and legal documents stating UFO’s and alien life actually exists. Video’s of Unidentified Flying Objects, the likes of what is now known on earth, dropping pods down to earth? What next? When will the race, as a whole, be able admit that there is more than meets the eye? Are we being invaded? Would we even know? All our nuclear weapons could very well be a ploy to let all aliens life forms know that ‘if you mess with earth, we’re pressing all the buttons? What do you think?
According to this new information the Russians have known about alien civilizations for several decades, to many this comes as no surprise, there have been rumors floating around for many years. Well respected military and government scientist have been trying to speak out on this issue for sometime now. In the vast majority of cases the mainstream media either treats this like a non event, or they treat it like the information is coming from very unreliable sources. This information is a big step in disclosure process for mankind.
With a slow start, the video takes you to a place few even know of. Was there an ancient race that lived in the Antarctic? Do they still live there, and are they ‘not so ancient?’ Do they control the world? Who, are, ‘they?’ Does Atlantis ‘exist, flourish and thrive in the Antarctic, with a race of highly intelligent beings whom control the world? History seems to imply that something is going on in the Antarctic and always has been going on. Are the pyramids under the Antarctic causing the global changes on earth? Strange reports of strange lands, strange, and ancient creatures, aliens, reptilians, and UFO’s, ‘all’ have been reported ‘by those with credentials’ (you see, few without ‘ever’ get to go there. Have you been there?).
Take that into account when doing your research. Research Hollow Earth, and Flat Earth where more evidence seems to imply, strongly, that we are not alone, at all, on this planet earth, and that there may be another species / race of intelligent being so very advanced (even so advanced to move landmasses, and melt ice faster than you ever could), that they appear magical to us mere humans? You be the judge. Around the 25 minute mark of this video, you may be thinking differently (come the half hour mark? You’re watching till the end). Ponder, wonder, think and dream.It’s what we’re here for.
This is part two. UFO’s from Mars? A war going on with the inhabitants of Mars? In March of 2014, a former US Marine named Randy Cramer also known as “Captain Kaye” revealed that he had spent 17 years on Mars as part of a highly classified mission called Mars Defense Force. In an Interview with ExoNews Tv, Captain Kaye reveals that about a year ago he was contacted by his superiors. He was told to make a disclosure about his covert service in Mars and time with the Secret Space Fleet.
In his revelations, Captain Kaye said that he spent three years of training in a secret space fleet called Earth Defense Force, a multi-national organization that recruits military personnel from US, Russia, and China. On his training, he said he flew anti-gravity vehicles throughout the solar system, and he was promoted to Captain. The training took place on a secret moon base called Lunar Operations Command, Saturn’s Moon Titan, and in deep space.
The ex-naval infantryman said he was posted to the Red Carpet to protect five human colonies from indigenous Martian life forms. According to him; the air is breathable on the surface of Mars and at times the temperature is very warm. Captain Kaye also revealed that the primary human colony on Mars is called Aries Prime that it is located inside a crater, and it also serves as their headquarters for the Mars Colony Corporation.
In his retirement ceremony after 20 years of service, he claims that it also took place on the moon, with VIP guests including ex-US Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfield.
Captain Kaye said that there are two indigenous species in Mars. One was the Reptilian species, and the other was the Insectoid species, both are highly intelligent species. Reptilians are aggressive in defending their territory while the Insectoids species are equally capable of protecting their land.
However, Captain Kaye reported that there was an incident that happened that changed all combat personnel from the Mars Defense Force when they retrieved an extraterrestrial artifact from a sacred cave of the indigenous Reptilians. Over 1000 men and women were killed during the battle, and only 28 survived including him. For more information see the website link to ‘Alien UFO Sightings’. This video is NOT for the squeamish. I have a most interesting video that is upcoming. An interactive one that will, when all the dust of interaction has settled, reveal that which the video`s content is all about (can`t say just yet). Stay tuned. It`s March 8th 2015. You have a great week. I splashed up a few video`s too soon for my liking (as I`ve got three others in the making which I feel are more gripping), but I done gone and did it by releasing them. Cheers. I only intend to intrigue. The evidence being gathered seems to point to only one conclusion, that there is a relation between Mars and Egypt. I consider it adult material in the form of knowledge, AND Yes, I’m trying to make my videos shorter. Part one can be found here. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e9a89… Would it be safe to assume that the human race is traveling throughout space, right now, in spaceships the likes of what we have no idea? What else better than a world of slaves, taxed to the maximum and more to pay for all that labor, fuel and materials? You be the judge. Is it an impossible thought? We created the pyramids tens of thousands of years ago. It’s not a crazy assumption, at all. Going to mars, or anywhere in space, is not about finding life, you know? Finding life is secondary. It’s about the potential of resources, and any life, there, out in space, that resists and does not conform to our desires will be annihilated or taught to conform the hard way (like, as history proves to show humans did to their own kind for resources – it’s always about the resources, and that is what human kind must also realize if it is to continue onward consuming and consuming in the amount that it is). What do you think? I think the evidence in this video reveals just what is going on
The Dyatlov Pass incident was an event that resulted in the deaths of nine-out-of-ten hikers in the northern Ural Mountains on the night of February 2, 1959. The incident happened on the eastern side of Kholat Syakhl. Since then, the mountain pass where the incident occurred has been called Dyatlov Pass after the group’s leader, Igor Dyatlov.
Investigators determined that the skiers had torn their tents from the inside out in order to escape from an apparent threat. They fled the campsite, some of them barefoot, under heavy snowfall. Although the bodies showed no signs of struggle, two victims had fractured skulls and broken ribs, absent contusion. Soviet authorities determined that an “unknown compelling force” had caused the deaths; access to the region was consequently blocked for hikers and adventurers for three years after the incident. Due to the lack of survivors, the chronology of events remains uncertain, although several theories exist, some involving a possible avalanche, and a hostile encounter with Extraterrestrial Life.
VIDEO: Italië in de ban van indrukwekkende graancirkel
VIDEO: Italië in de ban van indrukwekkende graancirkel
In de gemeente Cervia in de Italiaanse provincie Ravenna is in de nacht van 19 op 20 juni een indrukwekkende graancirkel verschenen. Dat melden Italiaanse media. Inwoners van het plaatsje Milano Marittima keken ’s ochtends raar op toen in een graanveld aan de kust een enorme graancirkel was verschenen.
Graancirkels worden overal ter wereld gezien, waaronder in Italië, maar het gebeurt zelden dat ze in een badplaats verschijnen. Omdat de graancirkelmakers nooit op heterdaad worden betrapt blijft het fenomeen met veel mysterie omgeven.
Krachtige elektromagnetische velden
De Amerikaanse bioloog William Levengood ontdekte in de jaren negentig dat de gewassen waarin graancirkels werden aangetroffen soms curieuze biologische veranderingen hadden ondergaan. Zo bleken de zaden van graanplanten te zijn misvormd, en was het kiemgedrag van de zaden soms duidelijk anders.
Hoewel Levengood zijn bevindingen meermalen in wetenschappelijke tijdschriften heeft gepubliceerd, zijn er weinig wetenschappers die in zijn voetsporen traden. Hij documenteerde ook talloze vreemde waarnemingen bij graancirkels.
In 1999 publiceerde Levengood in het wetenschappelijke tijdschrift Physiologia Plantarum het artikel Dispersion of energies in worldwide crop formations, waarin hij suggereerde dat graancirkels ontstaan door middel van krachtige elektromagnetische velden.
Geoloog: "Sfinx van Gizeh is veel ouder dan gedacht"
Geoloog: “Sfinx van Gizeh is veel ouder dan gedacht”
Is een groot deel van de menselijke geschiedenis uit de schoolboeken gelaten? Geoloog dr. Robert Schoch bespreekt zijn onderzoek naar de beroemde Sfinx van Gizeh. De meeste egyptologen nemen aan dat de sfinx rond 2500 voor Christus is gebouwd.
Schoch heeft de sfinx recent gedateerd op 6000 tot 12.000 voor Christus op basis van tekenen van regenerosie. Het lichaam van de sfinx vertoont horizontale en verticale goten. Deze goten zouden tekenen van erosie zijn door langdurige en hevige regenval. De laatste periode van langdurige hevige regenval vond rond 10.000 voor Christus plaats.
Rond die tijd zou de sfinx een leeuw zijn geweest, die was gericht op het punt waar ’s morgens een deel van het jaar zijn evenbeeld aan de sterrenhemel opkomt. In de tijd van de farao’s zou uit de leeuwenkop een mensenhoofd zijn gehouwen, wat het veel te kleine hoofd van de sfinx in verhouding tot het lichaam zou verklaren.
De van oorsprong Belgische ingenieur Robert Bauval en Graham Hancock hebben deze theorie voor een breder publiek toegankelijk gemaakt. In de video gaat Schoch ook dieper in op het bergheiligdom Göbekli Tepe in Turkije en catastrofes in de oudheid.

VIDEO: NASA onderbreekt livefeed ruimtestation ISS ‘nadat drie UFO’s langs de aarde vliegen’
De NASA zou de livestream vanaf het internationale ruimtestation ISS hebben onderbroken op het moment dat er drie UFO’s bij de aarde verschenen. Het houdt de gemoederen nogal bezig.
In de video zijn drie ongeïdentificeerde vliegende objecten te zien die uit de atmosfeer tevoorschijn komen. De lichten verlaten onze planeet enkele seconden voordat de livefeed door NASA wordt onderbroken omdat het ‘signaal was verbroken’.
“Bingo, op heterdaad betrapt terwijl ze de aarde verlaten,” schreef iemand onder het filmpje, dat zo’n 50.000 keer is bekeken. “Dit is het soort bewijs dat we nodig hebben.” NASA heeft nog niet gereageerd op de knipperende lichten tijdens de live-uitzending.
Volgens anderen kunnen het ook satellieten zijn of zijn de beelden bewerkt. Mensen die de livefeed vaak volgen zeggen dat de camera’s geregeld worden verwisseld en dat het beeld wel vaker wegvalt.
Het is niet de eerste keer dat complottheoretici claimen dat NASA buitenaardse activiteit heeft vastgelegd op camera. Er staan honderden filmpjes op YouTube waarin wordt beweerd dat er buitenaardse schepen bij het ruimtestation zijn gefilmd. Begin dit jaar werden de live-beelden van het ISS ook al onderbroken toen er een UFO in beeld verscheen.
Een graf met een buitenaards slachtoffer ( Video )
Een graf met een buitenaards slachtoffer ( Video )
In de Amerikaanse staat Texas bevond zich vroeger een kleine plaats genaamd Aurora.
Het was in feite een kleine voorstad van Fort Worth en het enige dat er nu eigenlijk nog van over is, is het kerkhof.
Wel een bijzonder kerkhof want het schijnt dat hier een buitenaards iemand begraven ligt.
Het verhaal begint met een artikel in The Dallas Morning News op 17 april 1897.
In dat artikel wordt verteld hoe lokale bewoners een vreemd zilverkleurig sigaarvormig object in de lucht waarnamen dat heen en weer wiebelde en steeds dichterbij de aarde kwam.
Uiteindelijk botste het tegen een windmolen op het land van de plaatselijke rechter, Judge Proctor, en explodeerde.
Klaarblijkelijk had het object één inzittende aan boord die niet onmiddellijk dood was, maar zwaar gewond. Het was een klein iemand die in een nabij gelegen schuur werd verpleegd, maar desondanks enkele uren later stierf.
Volgens het bericht in de krant was duidelijk dat degene in kwestie “niet van deze wereld was”.
De auteur van het artikel, S.E. Haydon, citeert een officier uit het leger die ter plaatse aanwezig was, met te zeggen dat deze van mening is dat de inzittende van het object afkomstig is van de planeet Mars.
Alhoewel de man een expert op het gebied van astronomie scheen te zijn, wordt verder niet duidelijk hoe hij kan weten of iemand van Mars komt of van een andere planeet.
De scene ter plaatse moet er ongeveer als volgt hebben uitgezien:
UFO onderzoeker Hayden Hewes sprak met talloze ooggetuigen en heeft aan de hand daarvan de volgende tekening gemaakt van de buitenaardse.
Door de jaren heen zijn er diverse illegale pogingen gedaan om het lichaam van deze buitenaardse op te graven, maar zonder succes omdat gewapende lokale bewoners dit wisten te voorkomen.
De vraag is of deze buitenaardse nog steeds daar ligt of door de overheid is opgegraven en meegenomen. Vlak na de ramp met het toestel gingen er verhalen dat er militairen waren gesignaleerd in Aurora.
Alien Spacecraft Sighting: Florida Witness Described Gray Rectangle Hovering
Alien Spacecraft Sighting: Florida Witness Described Gray Rectangle Hovering
The Sebring is a city in Florida with a population of 10,491. It is a peaceful town, but not an exception to the rule when it comes to strange sightings. At Palm Harbor; a Florida witness reported watching a rectangle-shaped strange object hovering in the sky. The occurrence is based on the testimony in Case 63122 from the Mutual UFO Network. When the object first came, the witness was lying in bed while looking out a window. At first, the witness failed to recognize the odd object claiming that it took a few minutes to process the mind. Afterwards, it was clearly seen as a gray, flat and rectangular-shaped object hovering gracefully in the sky. As the witness stared at the object, it finally moved into a better position favourable for viewing.
As the viewer changed its position to compare the object, it started disappearing. The object appeared like a cloud, or maybe a glint of light through a window. As the object is seen clearly from the open window, the object was still present. Therefore, it is not a glint of light. The edges of the object were straight and sharp. Furthermore, the rectangle was constantly hovering as if they were a levitating book. The witness alerted friends about the sighting and returned to view it. A few minutes later, however, when the witness looked at it, the odd object was covered in shadows.
Prior that night, many people across the county had seen three yellow/orange lights hovering in the sky around ten o clock. The witness’ dad explained it as flares, which is a gadget used by the military – he may be right or not. The witness heard that, on the same night, people across the country were seeing military flares hovering in the sky. Please remember that each sighting may be natural or man-made.
Filer’s Files #26 – Flying Saucers Serious Business - PART I
UFO captured over Marina, California on June 20, 2015
Filer’s Files #26 – Flying Saucers Serious Business - PART I
In special reports, this week’s files cover:Flying Saucers Serious Business, Optical and Photographic Technical Component Awareness Part 2, No Decision Yet on East Coast Missile Defense Site Letter from Earth Guardian Susan Signal, Holland Crop Circle in Wheat, and Mars Faces and Dam.
Unidentified Aerial Phenomena sightings were reported over: California, Colorado, Georgia, Illinois, New Jersey, North Carolina, Ohio, Tennessee, and Texas.
Sightings of UFOs were also reported in: Australia, Canada. Chile, China, South Africa, Turkey, England and Scotland 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.
While I was in Vietnam in 1968, the US Air Force modified the weather! I suggest that a few airplanes could modify the strong storms we are having causing tornadoes and high winds.

Flying Saucers Serious Business Director of Canadian UFO Research Wilbur Smith’s Report
People who knew Wilbur Smith claim he was in contact with extraterrestrials and was provided some data on how the propulsion system operated although our technology was too primitive to duplicate the craft.
Wilbur states, “I visited with Admiral Knowles and I had with me a piece that had been shot from a small flying saucer near Washington in July of 1952. I showed it to the Admiral. It was a piece of metal about twice the size of my thumb which had been loaned to me for a very short time by your Air Force. I have handled many pieces of hardware that are much harder than our materials. The pilot was chasing a glowing disc about two feet in diameter. A glowing chunk flew off and the pilot saw it glowing all the way to the ground. He radioed his report and a ground party hurried to the scene. The thing was still glowing when they found it an hour later. The entire piece weighed about pound. The segment that was loaned to me weighed about a third of that. (Analysis) There was iron rust – the thing was in reality a matrix of magnetism orthosilicate.”
The matrix had great numbers – thousands – of 15-micron spheres scattered through it. He returned the piece to a special group much higher than the Air Force. He also stated the Canadian government had recovered a large amount of unknown metal from a craft that crashed about 3000 pounds of it.
If the remains of the crashed craft are not in the hands of the military, they can justly claims they have no evidence. Saucers Are Serious Business Pages 49-50.
On June 25, 1952, Smith submitted an interim report on Project Magnet in which he stated that, “It appeared evident that flying saucers are emissaries from other civilizations and actually operate on magnetic principles, that we have failed to grasp due to our not paying enough attention to the structure of fields in our study of physics. Bremner arranged an interview with Dr. Robert Sarbacher, an electrical engineer and guided missile scientist with an impressive background, but most importantly, who was then a consultant to the U.S. Research and Development Board (RDB). In the interview on September 15, 1950, Sarbacher was to tell Bremner/Smith that Scully was essentially correct, flying saucers existed, they didn’t originate on Earth, and the subject was the most highly classified in the U.S. government, at a level higher than the H-bomb”.
This is all recorded in Smith’s handwritten notes of the meeting and a top secret memo Smith wrote to the Canadian Dept. of Transport on November 21, 1950. Smith’s memo also stated that Dr. Vannevar Bush [the former U.S. head of the OSRD (Office of Scientific Research & Development) during WWII and who created the postwar RDB] was in charge of a small group looking into the “modus operandi” of the saucers. (The latter piece of information was not in Smith’s notes of the meeting and may have come from another government source.)
Note: These small spheres may be like the orbs frequently seen today. They may operate similar to drones sending video back to larger craft. Frank Edwards had insider contacts. Please see Grant Cameron’s website for more details.
Optical and Photographic Technical Component Awareness Part 2
Chuck Reever MUFON’s International Director of Investigation writes, “There is also a condition called ‘Blooming.’ This “saturation” of light occurs when a digital camera “Pixel Array” has been saturated with an excess amount of light through over-exposure”
BLOOMING: (This effect is due to camera design and may be mistaken for structure or object. All digital cameras may incur this effect. Refer to second photograph from the left.)
Saturation of light in one or several sections of a camera “Pixel Array” may result in “blooming.”
The first image on the left shows a single star which has been over-saturated or “bloomed.”
There may be an image with small spikes coming from it (as shown in the second picture) or an elongated star image with tiny spikes (Spikes may also be produced by reflecting telescope “Spiders” which hold a “secondary” mirror in the front of the telescope.)
The second image from the left (with the Spikes) in the photos directly above shows a very dark rectangular area in the center of the image, this is also “blooming.” Very bright object are always suspect. Many Cell phones when pointed at the Sun record a very perfect “Flying Saucer” when a photograph is taken.” This is a result of the cell phone “aperture” and “blooming.”
A very bright Moon may also show a similar rectangular section in “red” or other color as a result of “blooming.” If internal structure is noted in or on an object, the investigator must try to determine if other objects in the same general field of view were in focus when using camera or binoculars etc. Objects in focus near to the witness may be in focus due to camera lens programming and objects in the distance may not be in focus. The investigator must be cautious here.
If the witness has observed the “object” through binoculars and states there is/was structure, be aware of the potential mistake of witness information. Sometimes when photographing objects in the sky even the slightest miss-focus may cause structure to appear. All photographs should be inspected for false focus adjustment and must be very carefully evaluated.
In 2014 I talked to an investigator in Europe. He saw a perfect saucer with what appeared to be a “cupola” in the video. Upon inspection this object only appeared if the camera was just very slightly out of focus. There have been other instances in past investigations of this nature.
OBJECTS NEAR THE HORIZON:
Objects near the horizon may cause witnesses to report activity when there is none. When looking through our atmosphere to the horizon or even somewhat above, there are more atmospheres to look through than if one looks straight up in the sky to the Zenith. This thicker or denser atmosphere may “twinkle” more than the rest of the sky. Due to refraction of light near the horizon objects may appear to have color when in fact this maybe just the effect of the atmosphere. Objects may appear to move about in strange ways due to the turbulence of the atmosphere which causes “Scintillation” or “Twinkling.” Astronomers call this turbulence “Seeing” and rated on a scale of 1-10, with 10 being a perfect night for observation or photography. This is why observatories are built at high elevations. (There are other reasons also.) Just be aware of these effects when reviewing cases that include information concerning the elevation of objects in the sky with color(s) and erratic movements near the horizon.
TESTING BINOCULARS OR TELESCOPE, SPOTTING SCOPE OPTICS:
NEVER LOOK AT THE SUN THROUGH ANY OPTICAL SYSTEM OR WITH YOUR UNAIDED EYE.
One may view Diffraction rings through binoculars. Place the binoculars on a star, (not a bright one but one which is dim.). Roll the focus wheel back and forth through inside of focus through to outside of focus. When the binoculars are in focus there should be no “rings.” (In poor systems there may be some kind of “ring” system observed.) However, notice that as you go back and forth the “rings” probably do not stay round, but rather may appear “squished” or take on a strange shape on either side of perfect focus. This occurs in poor optical system. In good telescope optics the “rings” always stay round. Thanks to Chuck Reever
No Decision Yet on East Coast Missile Defense Site
The Defense Department has not made a decision on the establishment of an East Coast-based missile defense site, the vice chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff said today.
Navy Adm. James A. Winnefeld Jr. focused on U.S. missile defense during a discussion on national security at the Center for Strategic and International Studies here. “We want our adversaries to know that not only is there a price for attacking us or our friends,” he said, “but also that the attack may not succeed in the first place, resulting in pain but no gain.”In improving the entire U.S. defense missile system, Winnefeld said a holistic view must be taken to ensure limited resources are “wisely” invested — not just in ground-based interceptors.“In this light,” he said, “there has been a lot of talk about installing an East Coast missile field. However, Winnefeld said, the only reason to make that investment would be to provide the capability to shoot, assess and then shoot again, which can only be done if the sensors needed to do so are in place.“We need to put our ability to see targets at the head of the line, and therefore, there’s been no decision yet by the department to move forward with an additional [continental U.S.] interceptor site though we very well could do that,” he said.
“Meanwhile,” Winnefeld added, “our current sites — Vandenberg [Air Force Base, California] and Fort Greeley in Alaska — protect the U.S. homeland from the existing and the projected ICBM threat from North Korea and Iran should either of them really emerge.”
At the apex of any country’s national security interests, the vice chairman said, is its own survival — the U.S. is no different. “At the top of the list of threats to that interest is, of course, a massive nuclear attack from Russia or some other high-end potential adversary like China,” Winnefeld said. “This is about existential attacks,” he explained, “attacks that are extremely hard to defend against, and because we prefer to use the deterrent of missile defense in situations where it has the highest probability of being most effective, we’ve stated that missile defense against these high-end threats is too hard and too expensive and too strategically destabilizing to even try.”
Winnefeld said the number of nations trying to achieve that capability is growing rather than shrinking and the department’s principal current concern is North Korea, “because they are closest in terms of capability, followed by Iran.”
He added, “A robust and capable national missile defense is our best bet to defend the United States from such an attack. That’s why the Ground-based Midcourse Defense program, is going to remain our first priority in missile defense.” Thanks to Sgt. 1st Class Tyrone Marshall on Twitter: @MarshallDoDNews DoD News, Defense Media Activity
Letter from Earth Guardian Susan Signal
I receive a series of letters from people who claim they are walk-ins from other planets. They often hold important positions and one ran a multi-million dollar company using some of his off planet inventions. Susan has memories’ that might interest you.
Susan writes, “My experiences started back in 1966-67, when I was 6-7 years old. I was sleeping when I had this dream of flying a ship which entered the Earths’ solar system faster than the speed of light.
Due to the very nature of my dream and its implications, I knew I couldn’t tell my mom like any other child tells their mom because of her not believing in ‘spaceships’. So, I was alone on this one and had to sort it out on my own. This was only the beginning of self re-discovery and a long bonding relationship with them.
A few days later in 1967, after the recall-reoccurring dream, I had a dream where I was in the mother ship being shown a series of cylinders with embryos in them. There was a couple standing in front of me as three aliens (ovoids-not greys) told me what they were. They also made it clear that I’m one of them and those were my real parents. They explained in great detail just how they did the in vitro method and that this method ruled out my Earth dad as my real father, but not my Earth mom as my real mother.
I somehow knew they were my real parents from my past life and felt a very strong maternal bond to both of them. I was in tears and didn’t want to leave the ship. They told me ”Don’t worry you will be with us while you are here, we will always be with each other up in ships, your DNA from your past-life body is you now, we put the past-life body DNA in the Earth mother’s egg and these 2 parents are really your parents from the past-life.” When I heard that I felt real sad like someone stole my life and parents from me. I was also shown the 3 beings that did this. There was also a show of the ethers I was floating around in, in the Earths’ atmosphere when they located my soul. I knew right then that there is such a thing as reincarnation, but again, couldn’t tell my mom because of her beliefs. I would wake up sitting cross legged staring at the closet. As the visits progressed, I was shown the mother ship, my former real people and felt quite at home there. This ship is the main mother ship of our people.
As a result of these experiences, I started reading all kinds of books on physics, reincarnation, quantum mechanics, dreams and psychology. I accelerated my intelligence from average reading level to above average in grade school and 3rd college year reading comprehension level when I graduated high school. I pursued a career in technology and acquiring several degrees in science and certifications in OSHA. I’ve always been driven and still deeply involved with them. Thanks to Susan Signal, email@example.com.
On September 16, 1994, at the Ariel primary school in Zimbabwe, 60+ school children reported seeing a disc shaped craft land in the area beyond the playground, and two beings approach the group. There were also multiple reports of sightings of unusual phenomena by thousands of Zimbabweans during this same time period. This case was so sensational at the time that Dr. John Mack, a Pulitzer Prize winning Harvard psychiatrist, traveled to the school to interview the children. Initially covered by the BBC, Reuters and other world press, this sighting quickly disappeared from the public eye. Until now. American filmmaker Randall Nickerson recently traveled to Africa and around the world to locate and interview the now adult witnesses and others who were key participants in the event. “Ariel Phenomenon” documents the story of this incredible occurrence, then and now, and will show the impact that has lasted for over twenty years.
Join the filmmakers in completing this amazing film. Word of the “Ariel Phenomenon” film has gotten out and several new witnesses have come forward who will need to be interviewed in order to tell the story in its entirety. Help is needed in completing these last interviews and in the remaining post production necessary to complete this extraordinary film this year. An Indiegogo campaign is currently under way, until June 18, 2015. The production team is asking for help to complete these last crucial interviews. The Indiegogo campaign
A film trailer and more details about this historic event can be found at Film Trailer. You can also become part of the film’s team and follow its progress on Facebook at “Ariel School Documentary” and Twitter at “Ariel School Film”.
Holland Crop Circle in Wheat
Zevenbergen — Nancy Talbott, BLT Research Team Inc. writes, “For several days both Robbert and I had been telling each other we felt a new circle was coming…I thought it would come Saturday night, but it didn’t and on Sunday night at 11:02 pm (Dutch time, 5:02 pm E. Coast U.S. time) Robbert skyped, saying he’d called Roy because he was sure it was coming now”. Roy had arrived when Robbert skyped me and, by then, Robbert had gotten an image in his mind’s eye of what the new grain formation would look like near Zevenbergen.
He also “saw” an actual street name this time (Mrenswegje). I got Robbert to hold up his sketch and made sure the clock in his kitchen also showed, so we could demonstrate the day and time.
This is a fairly big formation —146 feet. overall and the big center circle is 84 feet in diameter — and it was quite far into the field. When they arrived Robbert “saw” (in his “mind’s eye”) something really big hovering over this field and then knew this was where they should stop. Although it was very dark Robbert somehow picked the right tram-line the first time and, as they entered the field, both men said they felt “something was following them; something not visible was above their heads and watching them that Robbert felt was a UFO.
In one of Astrid’s fairly close shots I could see a huge elongation of the apical nodes in one of the STANDING center plants (red arrow), as well as clear bending of the bottom nodes at the base of the center swirl.
When Robbert called me after finding the formation he said that as he entered the field he had also felt a “pressure” on his head and shoulders….and then remarked about a “heat” he had felt on his chest—as if the sun, or a heater, was aimed right at his chest. He’s never commented on anything like this to me before. (see BLT report ). As Robbert looked up toward the “energy” Dan’s video camera suddenly began to darken all by itself until its LED screen was almost totally black due to the “energy” present.
It was as I was working on those exact photos that Robbert had just entered the field in Holland—and I, here in Cambridge, also began feeling an intense heat but, in my case, on my back—to the point where I turned around to see if the sun or a heater of some kind was aimed at my back. As Robbert and I told each other this we both recognized another incident during which we were both connected—not just to each other, but to the “energy.”
A woman Robbert doesn’t know who lives in the Utrecht area had emailed Robbert two days before the cc appeared, saying she ALSO had been feeling a new formation was coming…and she actual also enclosed a drawing of what she “saw” it might look like. Apple Report Pt1.

Mars Faces and Dam
The news was reporting a pyramid on Mars, but I do believe that this was just the pinnacle structure of a much larger building that was buried below the dirt or destroyed. There is also a face near the pyramid and two other not far away. The news didn’t report about the faces, so I decided to make my own video to let you know.
This week a UFO researcher who goes by the name of Martian Archeology on YouTube found what looks like to many to be a intelligently made water dam. I have to agree, this does look like it held water and I did find signs of some ancient black structures in the photo a little ways away. Also I found the face of the species that lived in this area of Mars. The face has a beard and mustache and a face similar to humans, but it’s lost a lot of details over the years. I told you, when you find a face.

Sightings of UFOs in the United States
Orange — On June 17, 2015, I was in my back yard when I began to notice a grouping of seven unusual lights to the north. They were already fairly high in the sky when first noticed so I cannot say definitely that they ascended from the ground or descended to the ground. My first thought was that some idiots had let off some Japanese lanterns. But then I noticed that they seemed to move on their own volition and appeared to move around each other too. I also had the feeling they were far away; but they were as bright as the aircraft coming into John Wayne Airport. I got my phone and took a picture; and disappeared. But within a minute only five were back and hovered and played tag with each other. Two more were gone and only three remained, hovering stationary before blinking out. Thanks to MUFON CMS
Marina— My wife took a picture on our way to my son’s baseball game on June 20, 2015, and this object was seen in the picture after we looked at it later.
Thanks to MUFON CMS
Denver — I was outside in my backyard taking photos of the sky on June 20, 2015. Right next to the Sun was a huge contrail left by a plane flying overhead.
I shot directly into the Sun and did not see the object until I uploaded it to my computer. Thanks to MUFON CMS
Hollywood – I was looking toward the airport or Port Everglades and noticed a funny looking rain cloud. It’s entire length seemed to be moving (shimmering actually) like it was filled with rain and moving and in the process of a heavy downpour, only, the sky was very blue all around and no dark or grey clouds were anywhere close. When I took this shot, I did not notice the soft white glows on the top of the formation, nor did I notice the approaching black rectangular object to the left.
Note:The cloud formation is interesting, but not unusual. The upper part of the cloud could be the result of a dissipating thunderstorm. The witness mentioned a rectangular object. The enlargement above likely shows the object mentioned by the witness. It is difficult to say anything definitive about the object (highlighted in the above photo) because it contains only a few pixels. Thanks to William Puckett, Director UFOsnw
Van War–I was grilling outside when I saw the shape of the object on August 4, 2012.It was a strange looking cloud that dissipated and suddenly disappeared. I also have video of black helicopters just after spotting object. Thanks to MUFON CMS
Quincy – On June 20, 2015, I was taking picture of storm clouds. No camera flash and not through glass. I did not notice the lights until looking at picture the next day. Was told to submit photo to this site to see what others think the lights might be. Thanks to MUFON CMS
New Jersey UFO
Mount Laurel — My son and I pulled over into a development to look at some houses on June 20, 2015. We shot a brief video so I could show my wife a couple of the nicer homes. After viewing the video several times, I noticed a very quick blip halfway through. Upon viewing with the slider on slow motion, I thought it could be nothing other than a UFO. After reviewing the footage and examining a couple screen captures I perceived the object as either diamond or triangular in shape. It possibly had a relatively small dome on top. The object had a straight line path and based on my estimates (iPhone 30 fps default video recording and relative distance / distance covered) was traveling 800-1200 mph? We really weren’t aware of the object while the object passed us. In the video, it accelerated and flew out of view of video. Thanks to MUFON CMS
North Carolina Light
Brevard–I was heading into a store. I saw an object moving across the sky on June 11, 2015. I took a picture and went on into the store at 9:49 PM. I told the clerk and he came out to see it, but it was gone.
Note: The adjusted contrast of the photo reveals a possible Chinese lantern. A “candle-like” structure is seen within the object. Thanks to MUFON CMS
Middletown— As a kid, in about 3rd grade, I was staying over at a friend’s house watching the movie Twister. We were in his bedroom with our backs to the window on June 16, 2001 when I suddenly had the urge to turn and look out the window. I stared in awe at a saucer shaped silver/grey object with red and blue lights around it that blinked in a pattern. It was about 50 feet in the air and 50 feet away and descending slowly with three stilt-like landing prongs came from the bottom of a domed part of the craft. It also had a triangular shape structure on top of the craft with two antennas. I motioned to my friend to look as the craft slowly descended and landed in a wooded area that railroad tracks ran through right behind his backyard. He ran to get his dad, who then came and looked out the window seeing nothing, and informed us that it was just our imaginations and to go to sleep. I have had dreams that I had gone out to the backyard and was confronted by “grey” beings who I communicated with me telepathically. We are both sure we saw the UFO and will never forget. Thanks to MUFON CMS
Tennessee Crop Circle
Gray— It’s a little ironic that this circle was discovered in a city call Gray, as if named after the species of aliens that are a meter tall with grey skin and big heads. It may be a message that a UFO wanted to analyze the crop for any DNA modifications of the food on June 1, 2015.Carty said he is sure of one thing, “If the little green men are coming this way, I’m not ready for them, I’m ready for the good Lord to come after me.” Both men said. “There are no tracks, human or machine, anywhere near the diagram so I hope we don’t get any alien abductions and remember to count your cows.” News source
McKinney — I was taking a Morning Prayer walk on June13, 2015, when I noticed the sky open up faster than normal. I took it as an answer to prayer and snapped two pictures. About 5 hours later I pulled them up to show my wife and we noticed a green spot in one of the pics and expanded both pictures and saw the ufo in two positions with different lighting on both pictures.
I only noticed the rapid opening up in the sky with the sun shining through the clouds. It was a dark cloudy morning so the sun shine peaked through brighter than usual. I didn’t notice the ufo until later that afternoon when I pulled the pics up on my phone.Thanks to MUFON CMS
Worldwide UFO Reports
Writs A friend sent me this photo of a UFO rising up from a valley somewhere in Australia on June 7th, 2015 at 6:19 am. The picture was taken from a car window while parked on the side of the road. The yellow/orange light coming from the UFO is reflecting off the guard rail by the roadside into the camera after it was reflected off the side of the car onto the guardrail. The brightness of the light off the guardrail gives you some idea of the intensity of the light coming from the craft. You can see shadows of trees between the craft that the occupants of the car captured in the picture which gives it some scale as does the guardrail in the forefront of the picture. Thanks to Tony Woody
Beckenham Perth– I was at an outdoor birthday celebration as the children were looking at the stars on June 9, 2015. When lights were first noticed I thought it was a domestic airplane flying at a very high altitude. There were three lights grouped something like navigation lights on a commercial airplane but these were much larger and brighter. The lights were flashing at roughly the same rate as normal aircraft moving north at about the same speed as an airplane at high altitude. When the lights were directly above they turned west and after 30 seconds they disappeared. I could see a commercial airplane landing at Perth airport at the same time. I feel it classifies as a UFO because its altitude, right angle change of direction and sudden disappearance. Thanks to MUFON CMS
Wheatley,Ontario — I am reporting this sighting for my sister and her boss that saw four white/pink stars like objects in formation on June 9th, 2015, at 10 pm, for about three hours. Three were forming a triangle with the fourth leading. The leading object was the most active, making weaving and figure eight maneuvers.
These objects had a physical effect on the surrounding clouds, forming a circle of clear space around the formation. Sometime after the sighting, a FM 96 radio station in London, Ontario (London’s Best Rock) shared a listener’s post on Face book, featuring two photographs of the same formation.
Only three of the four objects were sighted at this time.

Summerside Prince Edward — It was a nice sunny day, perfect for a walk on June 16, 2015. two of my friends and I went down to the waterfront and noticed the tide was out. We decided to take a walk across the sea bed to take some photos of the shoreline. As we were leaving I had this feeling come over me to take one last picture of the lighthouse, so I snapped the shot. We hadn’t noticed the UFO at this time because it made no sound. I was about to show the pictures to a friend when I noticed an object in the sky above the lighthouse. It looked as if this triangular-shaped object was either hovering or flying by.

La Raja — A luminous object startled fans enjoying the soccer game at the National Stadium on June 12, 2015. It was crossed the skies over Nuñoa for nearly 3 minutes. It was gone in the same way it appeared. The alleged UFO during the opening ceremonies of the Copa America at the National Stadium was swift and fleeting. The fireworks launched at the sports arena drew the attention of one supporter, who took out his cell phone quickly to capture the moment. However, he never thought he’d find a luminous object moving strangely, from side to side – a movement far from what one would expect of an aircraft.
Could it be a UFO? The images are eloquent. The conclusions are yours to draw. UFO Sightings Thanks to ufosightingsdaily
Foshan, Guangdong Province — One of the things that are interesting is that this UFO was seen during sunset on June 17, 2015. Some UFO cloaks are vulnerable during sunset and this causes them to become visible for anywhere between 30 seconds to 15 minutes. Sunset is the most common time of day to see a UFO. Watch a hundred sunsets and record it. You will see 4-10 UFOs during this time.Most people are not aware how alien technology can create clouds or cloak itself to look like a cloud. We see a UFO rise up out of the cloud so it could view the people below. The object is solid not gases because I see there is a shadow on the UFO that comes from the cloud below it. Scott C. Waring China News states: “The stunning picture, taken on June 17, 2015 shows rare lenticular clouds in the sky over Foshan.LINK

Cape Town— On Sunday night 14th June 2015, I was driving with my son and girlfriend and we saw something like never before three triangular shaped lights in the sky. It was the most amazing sight, in a split second it came together and disappeared so fast. I would like to know if anyone has seen this in Cape Town it was about 8 pm.

Plymouth – It occurred to me I should go out and look at the stars on June 19, 2015, and saw an orange orb in the sky. Then it became apparent this was a trapezium craft; with one on the top and another on the bottom: fitted together perfectly. It flashed a series of white (or gold), red and green lights from its exterior, as it stopped hovering and ascended. It flew up slowly staying beneath the cloud level. When it reached its maximum height at about 200 feet, it hovered for as I took a series of 6 photographs; two of which caught an image of the object. Then, it flew quickly over my house and I saw at the base of the craft a brilliant white light; a circle, like a tractor beam, that didn’t reflect offs any materials. I felt excited and equally scared. Its lights were unfamiliar as it made the sound of a supersonic boom, and I couldn’t see it past that. Thanks to MUFON CMS
Dornoch — My wife and I were walking our dog at “Grannies Heilin Hame” caravan site at Embo, on June 1, 2015, when she noticed a white light slowly moving east across the sky at 60° high. I went to my caravan to get my Canon EOS 600D camera and took a picture zooming right in on the bright silent object. I thought nothing of it until I downloaded it onto my laptop and zoomed in. The bright dot became a delta shape and numerous other worm-shaped “craft” are clearly seen around it. I found out later that adjacent to the caravan site is a military practice bombing range. It’s possible that the objects are linked with the exercises or it just MAY be alien craft checking out the area to see our defenses.
Note: The apparent shape of the light in the photo is probably not real and due to camera “jiggle” or the movement of the object. Thanks to William Puckett, Director Http://www.UFOsnw.com

Artist’s impression of a black hole feasting on matter from its companion star in a binary system. Material flows from the star towards the black hole and gathers in a disc, where it is heated up, shining brightly at optical, ultraviolet and X-ray wavelengths before spiralling into the black hole. Part of the disc material does not end up onto the black hole but is ejected the form of two powerful jets of particles. On 15 June 2015, the black-hole binary system V404 Cygni started showing signs of extraordinary activity, something that had not happened since 1989. The system consists of a black hole about twelve times more massive than the Sun and a companion star about half as massive as the Sun. Image credit: ESA/ATG medialab.
Over the past ten days, ESA’s Integral satellite has been observing an exceptional outburst of high-energy light produced by a black hole that is devouring material from its stellar companion.
X-rays and gamma rays point to some of the most extreme phenomena in the universe, such as stellar explosions, powerful outbursts and black holes feasting on their surroundings.
In contrast to the peaceful view of the night sky we see with our eyes, the high-energy sky is a dynamic light show, from flickering sources that change their brightness dramatically in a few minutes to others that vary on timescales spanning years or even decades.
On 15 June 2015, a long-time acquaintance of X-ray and gamma ray astronomers made its comeback to the cosmic stage: V404 Cygni, a system comprising a black hole and a star orbiting one another. It is located in our Milky Way galaxy, almost 8,000 light-years away in the constellation Cygnus, the Swan.
In this type of binary system, material flows from the star towards the black hole and gathers in a disc, where it is heated up, shining brightly at optical, ultraviolet and X-ray wavelengths before spiraling into the black hole.
This animation show the patch of the sky where the black-hole binary system V404 Cygni is located, as observed with the IBIS instrument on ESA’s Integral gamma-ray observatory. Before the outburst on 19 May 2015: V404 Cygni is not present, and its position is marked with a cross. After the outburst on 18 June 2015: V404 Cygni is the brightest source in the field. The two sources Cygnus X-1 and Cygnus X-3, present in both images, are some of the brightest objects in the X-ray sky. Other transient sources are also present in both images, highlighting the great variability of the high-energy sky. Image credits: Carlo Ferrigno, Integral Science Data Centre, Geneva, Switzerland. AN animation by Ade Ashford.
First signs of renewed activity in V404 Cygni were spotted by the Burst Alert Telescope on NASA’s Swift satellite, detecting a sudden burst of gamma rays, and then triggering observations with its X-ray telescope. Soon after, MAXI (Monitor of All-sky X-ray Image), part of the Japanese Experiment Module on the International Space Station, observed an X-ray flare from the same patch of the sky.
These first detections triggered a massive campaign of observations from ground-based telescopes and from space-based observatories, to monitor V404 Cygni at many different wavelengths across the electromagnetic spectrum. As part of this worldwide effort, ESA’s Integral gamma-ray observatory started monitoring the outbursting black hole on 17 June.
“The behaviour of this source is extraordinary at the moment, with repeated bright flashes of light on time scales shorter than an hour, something rarely seen in other black hole systems,” comments Erik Kuulkers, Integral project scientist at ESA.
“In these moments, it becomes the brightest object in the X-ray sky — up to fifty times brighter than the Crab Nebula, normally one of the brightest sources in the high-energy sky.”
This graph shows variation in the X-ray luminosity of the black-hole binary system V404 Cygni, as observed with the IBIS/ISGRI instrument on ESA’s Integral gamma-ray observatory at energies between 20 and 40 keV compared to the Crab Nebula (pink). On 15 June 2015, V404 Cygni started showing signs of extraordinary activity, something that had not happened since 1989. The renewed activity is likely caused by material slowly piling up in the disc, until eventually reaching a tipping point that dramatically changes the black hole’s feeding routine for a short period.

The V404 Cygni black hole system has not been this bright and active since 1989, when it was observed with the Japanese X-ray satellite Ginga and high-energy instruments onboard the Mir space station.
The 1989 outburst of V404 Cygni was crucial in the study of black holes. Until then, astronomers knew only a handful of objects that they thought could be black holes, and V404 Cygni was one of the most convincing candidates.
A couple of years after the 1989 outburst, once the source had returned to a quieter state, the astronomers were able to see its companion star, which had been outshone by the extreme activity. The star is about half as massive as the Sun, and by studying the relative motion of the two objects in the binary system, it was determined that the companion must be a black hole, about twelve times more massive than the Sun.
At the time, the astronomers also looked back at archival data from optical telescopes over the twentieth century, finding two previous outbursts, one in 1938 and another one in 1956.
These peaks of activity, which occur every two to three decades, are likely caused by material slowly piling up in the disc surrounding the black hole, until eventually reaching a tipping point that dramatically changes the black hole’s feeding routine for a short period.
“Now that this extreme object has woken up again, we are all eager to learn more about the engine that powers the outburst we are observing,” says Carlo Ferrigno from the Integral Science Data Center at the University of Geneva, Switzerland.
“As coordinators of Integral operations, Enrico Bozzo and I received a text message at 1:30 am on 18 June from our burst alert system, which is designed to detect gamma-ray bursts in the Integral data. In this case, it turned out to be ‘only’ an exceptional flare since Integral was observing this incredible black hole: definitely a good reason to be woken up in the middle of the night!”
Since the first outburst detection on 15 June by the Swift satellite, V404 Cygni has remained very active, keeping astronomers extremely busy. Over the past week, several teams around the world published over twenty Astronomical Telegrams and other official communications, sharing the progress of the observations at different wavelengths.
This exciting outburst has also been discussed by astronomers attending the European Week of Astronomy and Space Science conference this week in Tenerife, sharing information on observations that have been made in the past few days.
Integral too has been observing this object continuously since 17 June, except for some short periods when it was not possible for operational reasons. The X-ray data show huge variability, with intense flares lasting only a couple of minutes, as well as longer outbursts over time scales of a few hours. Integral also recorded a huge emission of gamma rays from this frenzied black hole.
Because different components of a black-hole binary system emit radiation at different wavelengths across the spectrum, astronomers are combining high-energy observations with those made at optical and radio wavelengths in order to get a complete view of what is happening in this unique object.
“We have been observing V404 Cygni with the Gran Telescopio Canarias, which has the largest mirror currently available for optical astronomy,” explains Teo Muñoz-Darias from the Instituto de Astrofísica de Canarias in Tenerife, Spain.
Using this 10.4-metre telescope located on La Palma, the astronomers can quickly obtain high quality spectra, thus probing what happens around the black hole on short time scales.
“There are many features in our spectra, showing signs of massive outflows of material in the black hole’s environment. We are looking forward to testing our current understanding of black holes and their feeding habits with these rich data,” adds Muñoz-Darias.
Radio astronomers all over the world are also joining in this extraordinary observing campaign. The first detection at these long wavelengths was made shortly after the first Swift alert on 15 June with the Arcminute Microkelvin Imager from the Mullard Radio Astronomy Observatory near Cambridge, in the UK, thanks to the robotic mode of this telescope.
Like the data at other wavelengths, these radio observations also exhibit a continuous series of extremely bright flares. Astronomers will exploit them to investigate the mechanisms that give rise to powerful jets of particles, moving away at velocities close to the speed of light, from the black hole’s accretion disc.
There are only a handful of black-hole binary systems for which data have been collected simultaneously at many wavelengths, and the current outburst of V404 Cygni offers the rare chance to gather more observations of this kind. Back in space, Integral has a full-time job watching the events unfold.
“We have been devoting all of Integral’s time to observe this exciting source for the past week, and we will keep doing so at least until early July,” comments Peter Kretschmar, ESA Integral mission manager.
“The observations will soon be made available publicly, so that astronomers across the world can exploit them to learn more about this unique object. It will also be possible to use Integral data to try and detect polarisation of the X-ray and gamma ray emission, which could reveal more details about the geometry of the black hole accretion process. This is definitely material for the astrophysics textbooks for the coming years.”

A Neptune-size planet appears to be masquerading as a comet, with a gargantuan stream of gas flowing behind it like a comet's tail.
The bizarre find is the first of its kind ever discovered by astronomers. The strange, cometlike planet, known as GJ 436b, is orbiting a red dwarf star and is about 22 times as massive as Earth. Astronomers detected the giant gas cloud around the planet using NASA's Hubble Space Telescope and Chandra X-ray Observatory.
"I was astonished by the mere size of the cloud of gas escaping from the planet," said study lead author David Ehrenreich, an astronomer at the observatory of the University of Geneva in Switzerland. [The Strangest Alien Planets]
Report submitted to the MUFON database on June 25, 2015
On a trip to Teotihucan in Mexico, I took a photo of the pyramid of the sun. Later when I was reviewing my photo, I saw two objects above the pyramid. I didn’t see or hear them at the time. My friend took an almost identical photo approximately 10 seconds after I did and nothing is in her photo.
The first photo I’ve submitted is mine. The second is my friends photo taken approximately 10 seconds after. In her photo you can see my head in the lower left corner because I was wearing a red and white bandana on my head. Also you can see tourist moving up the steps of the pyramid to show how much time passed between photos.

Illinois might just be one of the most UFO-crazy states in the nation. Using data from the National UFO Reporting Center and the Mutual UFO Network, Metrocosm has created an interactive map that includes more than 90,000 reported UFO sightings dating all the way back to 1905.
Unlike Rachel, Nev., Illinois isn't considered a go-to destination for ET enthusiasts hoping to catch a glimpse of some paranormal activity. But according to Metrocosm's map, UFO hunters might have a better chance at spotting strange lights in the skies of Illinois than anywhere else in the country.
Six of the 10 most corroborated UFO sightings in recent U.S. history have occurred in Illinois, says Max Galka of Metrocosm. Galka assumes the more witness reports there are, the more credible the UFO sighting. Take a look at the map below. The size of the circle represents the number of witness reports.
While researchers, astronomers and scientists say at least 95 percent of UFO sightings can be explained, perhaps the most interesting of UFO sightings in Illinois are the recurring "Tinley Park Lights," sometimes referred to as the "Tinley Park Triangle."
Six of the 10 most-corroborated UFO sightings in the U.S. have happened in Illinois. Here are three:
"Tinley Park Lights"
1. Aug. 20, 2004
Location: Tinley Park
Witness reports: 45
Description: 3 red lights in triangle formation
2. Oct. 31, 2004
Location: Tinley Park
Witness reports: 77
Description: 3 red lights in triangle formation
At about 8:00 p.m., Oct. 31, 2004, three bright red lights were seen in the eastern sky. They started out in a gradual "L" formation. They were moving very slowly. There was no noise, like an airplane or helicopter would make. It then seemed like they were moving closer to one another. They moved into a perfect "L" formation, then a straight vertical formation, and then a triangular formation (one at the top two at the bottom). Then, the top light seemed to fall quickly out of place, going straight down. And eventually you couldn't see it anymore. It seemed to disappear. The other two kept moving slowly, not changing positions. Then they seemed to gradually move away from one another. It was a cloudy/foggy night, so the other two eventually disappeared. Then at about 9:20 p.m. that same evening, another bright red light was seen moving east, all by itself. It was only visible for a few minutes, then disappeared.
GREENWOOD, Ind. -A video shot in Greenwood recently captured a bizarre phenomenon in the sky. YouTube user QuadeM13 posted the video, which has garnered over a million views from people speculating about what it might be.
NOTE: The video contains some profanity. NSFW!
A "crown flash" appears in the small arc to the left.
We showed it to SkyTrak meteorologist Sean Ash, who did some research for us. He found this article from Slate.
The video shows a strange light appearing to dance in the sky. While it's sparked all kinds of conspiracy theories, nothing beats a little old-fashioned science for an explanation.
Slate points out that the phenomenon, known as a crown flash, is caused by ice crystals in the cirrus cloud merging with the electric field of a rising cumulus cloud. As the field changes, the crystals snap and move around - reflecting and refracting sunlight in different directions.
But if you prefer to believe in UFOs or something else, well, we can't stop you!
NASA and the National Nuclear Security Administration are teaming up to try to figure out a way to use nuclear weapons to either destroy threatening asteroids or to at least nudge them off course. This seems very odd considering the fact that just a couple of weeks ago NASA publicly announced that it knew of “no asteroid or comet currently on a collision course with Earth” and that “no large object is likely to strike the Earth any time in the next several hundred years“.
If what NASA told us previously is true, than it would seem that it would be a tremendous waste of time, money and resources to work on a way to destroy asteroids using nuclear weapons.
Why is NASA suddenly so interested in the threat of large asteroids if one is not likely to hit us “any time in the next several hundred years”? Could it be possible that they know something that they are not telling us?
When I first heard that NASA was teaming up with the National Nuclear Security Administration to figure out a way to use nuclear weapons against asteroids, I immediately had flashbacks to two of my favorite movies from the 1990s – Deep Impact and Armageddon. But it disturbs me that our “best minds” haven’t come up with any better ideas since those films first came out.
The following is from a New York Times article about this new development…
The two agencies — NASA and the National Nuclear Security Administration — have long studied such threats on their own. They have surveyed the cosmic debris, designed rocket interceptors and run supercomputer simulations to see if a nuclear blast could nudge a large asteroid off course.
In interviews, federal officials and private experts said the new interagency agreement would deepen the levels of expert cooperation and governmental planning, ultimately increasing the chances of a successful deflection.
“It’s a big step forward,” said Kevin Greenaugh, a senior official at the nuclear security agency. “Whenever you have multiple agencies coming together for the common defense, that’s news.”
It sounds like such a perfectly “American” solution, doesn’t it?
What should we do if a big threat is coming our way?
Just nuke it baby.
But as MSN has pointed out, blowing up a gigantic mountain of rock hurtling toward us at ultra-high speed could create an even bigger problem… Computer simulations suggest that we could successfully blow up a medium-sized space rock.However, the resulting rock fragments could potentially make the situation worse, depending on how far the asteroid is from Earth when it explodes. A better solution might be to use the bomb to deflect the asteroid instead of blowing it to smithereens.
Other (non-nuclear) proposals include gravity tractors, using sunlight to “boil off” parts of the Near Earth Object, and using lasers or high-speed spacecraft to nudge the object off of its collision course with Earth. However, a 2007 NASA studyindicated that nuclear solutions may be the best weapon we’ve got when it comes to fighting killer space rocks.
But this isn’t all that NASA has been up to.
Earlier this year, they conducted a “hypothetical asteroid impact scenario”. The following is what the official NASA website has to say about that exercise…
At the 2015 IAA Planetary Defense Conference (PDC), to be held April 13 – 17, 2015 in Frascati, Italy, a hypothetical asteroid impact scenario will be presented and used as a basis for discussion. NOTE: Although this scenario is realistic in many ways, it is completely fictional and does NOT describe a real potential asteroid impact.
So why is NASA spending so much time and energy on something they say is probably not going to happen “any time in the next several hundred years”?
Of course the truth is that NASA is not being straight with us. As the Daily Mailrecently explained, there are approximately a million near-Earth objects that could potentially be a threat to our planet, and NASA only knows where a small percentage of them are…
Scientists believe there are around one million near-Earth asteroids that could pose a threat to our planet – but only a tiny fraction have so far been detected.
Dramatic proof that any of these can strike Earth came on 15 February last year, when an unknown object exploded high above Chelyabinsk, Russia, with 20 – 30 times the energy of the Hiroshima atomic bomb.
It is true that our ability to detect asteroids that can impact our planet has grown. But it is still extremely limited. Here is more from the Daily Mail…
But existing asteroid detection systems can only track one percent of the estimated objects that orbit the sun, according to asteroid mining firm Planetary Resources, who is partnering with Nasa on the project.
In a session at the SXSW conference in Texas last year, Nasa scientist Jason Kessler said: ‘The likelihood of something hitting us in the future is pretty guaranteed, although we’re not freaking out that there is an imminent threat.’
Yes, without a doubt the chance that a giant space rock will hit us at some point in the future is indeed “pretty guaranteed”. We know that giant asteroids have hit our planet in the past, and there was a pretty significant “near miss” just a few months ago that NASA did not see coming in advance. I wish that they would just be honest with us. NASA cannot see all of the giant space rocks that could be a threat to us, and they definitely should be spending time, money and resources on this problem.
Someday if a giant asteroid were to hit us in just the right spot, like just off the east coast of the United States for example, the consequences would be absolutely catastrophic. We could suddenly be faced with a tsunami hundreds of feet high racing toward our major coastal cities. For much more on this, please check out this articleand this article.
Most people assume that a major asteroid strike is not a threat because one has not happened during any of our lifetimes. But NASA would not be going to all of this trouble if this was something that they were not concerned about.
In the end, what they are not telling us could turn out to be far more of a problem than most of us ever imagined.
