British witness videotapes UFOs over Gosport
British witness videotapes UFOs over Gosport
A Great Britain witness at Gosport reported watching and videotaping three lights that at times formed a triangle low in the sky and made random movements before all disappearing from view, according to testimony in Case 81450 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.
Object image created from witness video.
The witness stepped outside at 10:50 p.m. on January 9, 2017, to dispose of rubbish bags in his work as a cleaner.
“I noticed three green lights at around a 30-degree angle northwest of my position,” the witness stated.“Distance and height were too difficult to estimate from my position, but after checking on Google maps there are mostly only fields in that direction. The postcode I observed from was PO13 0HR.”
The witness described the lights.
“The lights were evenly spaced in a large triangle formation with one more forward than the others when I first noticed them. They then all turned purple and started to move. You can observe in the video how they moved. I had full zoom using a phone camera so quality isn’t great, but they were all bright purple in color and didn’t change again. They seemed to move in a random manor, moving side-to-side and up and down very quickly and turning very sharply. They would pass each other to swap sides, sometimes coming back to form triangles for a few seconds before moving again.”
Object image created from witness video.
The witness stated that several times it looked as though one moved into another and became one light before breaking apart again.
“They disappeared below the houses several times so that I couldn’t see from my position what they were doing until the final time when I waited several minutes before giving up that they wouldn’t appear again. So whatever it was possibly landed because they didn’t appear above the houses again.”
The witness went back inside the building onto the second level to view from a higher angle and could see one light again just above the house, but it quickly disappeared downwards.
“That was the last I saw of them. They never went higher than the initial height I observed them at. There were no other aircraft I noticed in the area, although there is a small airfield behind my position. The weather was dry (although rain earlier in the day), the sky seemed clear, stars were visible overhead but none visible at the angle/height of these lights, presumably because of light pollution. When I left where I was 30 minutes later, the sky around the area where the lights were was a hazy red color. The rest of the sky in the surrounding area was black, but this area specifically was a different color. I thought this might be some kind of heavy light pollution in that direction, but according to Google maps, there are mostly just fields there, nothing that would give off unusual light pollution.”

STRANGE THINGS ARE HAPPENING TO ASTRONAUTS RETURNING FROM SPACE. SEE FOR YOURSELF!
STRANGE THINGS ARE HAPPENING TO ASTRONAUTS RETURNING FROM SPACE. SEE FOR YOURSELF!
To admire the beauty of the earth we need to see it from the outside. This realisation is very strong in the case of these astronauts. Looking at earth from space, these people realise how beautiful and vibrant the earth is.
A LIFE CHANGING EXPERIENCE FOR ASTRONAUTS
It appears most beautiful of all the planets known to mankind. As a bright blue globe with the views of oceans, land, clouds, lightening, city lights, demarcation between day and night, the astronauts realise the true beauty and importance of their own planet. From the top there seems to be no boundary between people and countries, no hate, no fight, no wars, just pure and peaceful experience.
The realisation of belonging dawns and that this planet belongs to mankind, it is a fragile place that needs to be tended carefully for the survival of human species. It is a realisation that there should be unity amongst us, it is a unique place almost like an oasis in the middle of this dark space. The understanding that human race is one and should be united living in peace and harmony.
These are some feelings experienced by these astronauts which they claim as an ethereal experience, almost spiritual and they could gaze at it for hours admiring its beauty. It is the same experience when somebody leave their house and then the realisation dawns on how cosy and warm the house was, the same feeling of belonging was experienced by these astronauts. This experience widened their horizon and their way of looking at mother earth against the backdrop vast universe with billions of stars and galaxies.
A very moving experience indeed for these astronauts and they have learnt to admire and appreciate earth better as this experience have changed their perspective on life. They returned to earth as a changed human being. I wish that every human think that way and unite together, breaking all man made barriers to make our planet a safe place.
NUCLEAR PHYSICIST WARNS: ALIENS ARE HERE ON EARTH AND WILL TAKE OVER
NUCLEAR PHYSICIST WARNS: ALIENS ARE HERE ON EARTH AND WILL TAKE OVER
One of Canada’s top nuclear physicists went on record to admit that aliens are already among us and that they make visits to Earth regularly. Stanton Friedman said that extraterrestrials had visited Earth many times and one day they plan on quarantining people on Earth.
Friedman, 82 years old, said that the government has deliberately been keeping secret evidence of alien visits to Earth, in what he said was part of a truth embargo. The Physicist went on to say that there is enough proof without any shadow of a doubt that Earth is continually being visited by aliens.
Friedman claims that the evidence is being kept from people due to the fact that the world would be in upheaval, as people would find alien visits distressing, and there would be mass panic. He also made it clear that if the aliens wanted people to know they were on Earth, they would.
Part of the proof that Friedman claims are being hidden include CIA files that have been declassified on sightings of UFOs. The physicist believes that aliens want to stop humans colonizing space and he firmly believes that they will quarantine people on Earth to stop humans from venturing out into space.
Friedman said that the track record of humans isn’t good; people are evil and said that the government is taking full advantage of the aliens being on Earth so that they can harness their technology, with the aim of achieving world supremacy. It is the belief of Friedman that the first country able to copy alien technology will be able to rule Earth.
He also pointed out that there was a political aspect to the government keeping aliens on Earth a secret, as the US government would not want to put anything out there if the Chinese or Russians don’t.
Friedman has in the past written extensive documentation on aliens and UFOs, and he said the secrecy was the Cosmic Watergate, which of course was about the cover-up scandal of President Nixon, during the 70s. The physicist tours the world giving talks at conferences and universities about his beliefs, but it seems that there are many skeptics out there who he hasn’t been able to convince.
In similar ways, researchers all around the globe have been hunting for Pyramids and lost structures that have eluded experts for decades.
In 2012, American researcher Angela Micol discovered ‘Pyramids larger than those found on the Giza Plateau, using satellite images.
But countless different discoveries have been made using Google Earth.
Last year we reported about a complex of structures that stretch for a staggering 76 miles at its furthest points.
The formations found off the coast of Baja California include mysterious tube-like constructions that are roughly 2.4 miles in width. Given the curious shape and distinguishable lines, many believe these are just some of the many underwater structures on our planet.
However, these new claims go beyond anything we’ve probably ever come across.
This wall’s sheer size and its adherence to linearity indicate it is not a natural formation to many. In fact, many people are convinced that due to the numerous discoveries made across the globe which completely contradict history as we have been taught in school, something like this is entirely possible. After all—they say—Earth is millions of years old and we are begging to uncover evidence that suggests many ancient civilizations inhabited Earth in our planet’s long history.
But, hold on a sec, this can’t be a wall, right?
Zooming in on the provided coordinates you clearly see what seems to be a MASSIVE structure. But who could have erected such a wall? If it really is an artificial structure, how old is it? What was its purpose?
Many disagree and don’t believe we are looking at an actual wall. In fact, there even might be a perfectly reasonable explanation for the enigmatic finding.
What if we are looking at a Google Earth glitch?
Due to the fact that Google Earth uses different images while ‘mapping the planet’, it isn’t uncommon to encounter parts of the map that just didn’t quite match perfectly, resulting in a MASSIVE wall that encompasses the entire planet.
One of the most likely explanations for this ‘impressive find’ is that we are looking at a digital seem in the mapping of the Poles.
Satellite image stitching error?
Image stitching or photo stitching is the process of combining multiple photographic images with overlapping fields of view to produce a segmented panorama or high-resolution image.
Commonly performed through the use of computer software, most approaches to image stitching require nearly exact overlaps between images and identical exposures to produce seamless results.
Image stitching is widely used in today’s world and was used in the satellite images we are seeing on Google Earth.
But an entire wall that encompasses Earth?
A lot of things can have played a role in creating such an effect. Illumination, point of view, reference, and many other things may have played a crucial role in this massive error. One of the most likely reasons for the seam appearing could be the background changing between two images for the same continuous foreground.
Finding a rock isn't something unusual. We see them all the time, yes some can be beautiful and maybe worth collecting. Some may hold secrets of past life by having fossils found within. But this particular rock which was discovered near one of the two legendary alien crash sites in Roswell, New Mexico is like no other rock ever found before.
The rock which was found by a 56-year-old man by the name of Robert L. Ridge back in 2004 seems to be truly a unique find. According to Mr. Ridge, he discovered the rock while out bow collecting and just happened to catch his eye, with good reason. Although completely covered in dirt at the time there was still something strange about the object that caught his interest. When he took the rock home to be cleaned, he found that it was even more of a mystery than he first thought.
The rock was perfectly smooth and rounded, but this was just the beginning of what was different about it. Turns out that this rock also mysterious symbols on it. The only way to describe the symbols on the rock were that these seem to resemble the unexplained crop circles that have also appeared on the earth with no given explanation. The symbols on the rock were like two crescent moons that were joined in the center corners.
Given the proximity of the rock to one of the notorious Roswell alien crash sites could it be something that was carried on one of the space crafts? According to Mr. Ridge, the look of the rock makes it almost seem impossible that such an object could have an origin to the planet earth given it's smooth and perfect edges along with the pattern. Some who have seen this rock believe that it could have been left by the aliens as a message to the earth. It is believed that maybe the aliens were trying to warn the earth of what could be an impending doom.
These, however, are just theories about what the rock cold mean. So far the origins or even the fact that this rock does have any true purpose is still a mystery that is out. Kind of like the famed alien crash sites in Roswell, New Mexico.
The International Space Station films the Black Knight Satellite in orbit
The International Space Station films the Black Knight Satellite in orbit
A video captured by the cameras aboard the International Space Station (EIS) could finally prove right avid seekers of extraterrestrial life. In the video, you can distinguish a strange formation that— many assure— is an alien spaceship, specifically the so-called Black Knight Satellite.
Even though the image itself isn’t crystal clear (as in most cases), UFO enthusiasts argue that we can clearly see the shape of the Black Knight Satellite.
The enigmatic alien vehicle has created quite a buzz in the last couple of years.
The discovery of the Black Knight Satellite is perhaps one of the most (in) famous space objects to orbit our Planet. This “Artificial Satellite” has caused major media interest since the late 50’s, and it has become one of the most talked about objects in space. First thought to be a Russian spy satellite, the Black Knight has gripped the interest of millions worldwide.
The story of the Black Knight made its media debut in the 1940’s when the St. Louis Dispatch and The San Francisco Examiner wrote about the “Satellite” on May 14th, 1954. The Time Magazine wrote about it on the seventh of March, 1960.
According to UFOlogists, the enigmatic alien satellite has been keeping an eye on our civilization for over 13,000 years.
Over the years—especially since the ISS got its live feed installed—the Black Knight Satellite, and countless other ‘alien’ objects have been identified by millions of people around the globe.
This new video, uploaded by UFO hunter Streetcap1 argues that the enigmatic alien vehicle is clearly visible and that it’s not a thermal blanket as many skeptics have claimed.
In fact, the eery object doesn’t really resemble any known man-made object orbiting our planet. Its orbit is odd, and its design and shape are most definitely what you’d expect to see from an alien spaceship (not that we’d know).
UFO hunters argue that there are no solar panels attached to the main body which has led many to conclude that it must employ and rely on an unknown propulsion system.
NASA doesn’t speak out much about alleged UFO sightings but when it does, the American Space Agency usually agrees that most UFOs are either shadows, lights from the International Space Station, and space debris.
Interestingly, when in 1963 Gordon Cooper was launched into space, on his final orbit, he reported seeing a glowing green object in front of his capsule in the distance moving towards his Spacecraft.
The Muchea tracking station, in Australia, which Cooper reported the object to, picked up this unidentified object on Radar traveling east to West. NBC reported this, but after Cooper had returned to Earth, the Reporter were not allowed to ask Cooper about the unidentified object. The official explanation given to Coopers sighting were “high levels of carbon dioxide, which caused hallucinations”.
Interestingly, in 1957, an unknown “object” was seen “shadowing” the Sputnik 1 Spacecraft. According to reports, the “unidentified object” was in Polar orbit, at that time The United Stated nor the Russians possessed the technology to maintain a spacecraft in Polar Orbit. According to our research, the first Polar-orbiting satellite was launched in 1960.
Polar orbits are often used for earth-mapping, earth observation, capturing the earth as time passes from one point and reconnaissance satellites. This would put the Black Knight in the category of an observational Satellite, the only question here is, who placed The Black Knight in a polar orbit and for what purpose?
ANUNNAKI: THE 'FORBIDDEN' MOVIE THAT NEVER CAME TO THE CINEMAS, WHY?
ANUNNAKI: THE 'FORBIDDEN' MOVIE THAT NEVER CAME TO THE CINEMAS, WHY?
And God said: "Let us make man in our image and likeness ..."
In 2006, an unknown American director of his name Jon Gress began filming what should be the most controversial film of the century (surpassing 2012).
DARWIN ... WAS WRONG! ...
The trilogy about the Anunnaki stays on Earth! Since its arrival 450,000 years ago, the pre and post flood empires, the exit and a likely return, by mid-2012.
A very precise and independent film, based on the books of Zecharia Sitchin, which should have been released in 2007, 2008 and 2009. The official site of the film was disconcerting, and there were pre-production photos.
But, something happened (it is not the first time this happens). It was closed, as well as any link related to the movie.
All images, videos, and information have been deleted from the internet. The Anunnaki film was never released, and the tracks of its existence were erased from the media.
Proof of Alien contact? Experts unearth Ancient Maya statue depicting an ‘Alien’ humanoid
Proof of Alien contact? Experts unearth Ancient Maya statue depicting an ‘Alien’ humanoid
Experts have unearthed a mysterious statue belonging to the ancient Maya civilization. The curious item depicts ‘an alien humanoid’ holding a human head.
The statue consists of a snake that seems to surround the figure of a small ‘ALIEN humanoid’ seen in a profile view holding a human head. Notice the strange head and oval-shaped eyes.
Directors of the museum of Xiutetelco—Puebla, Mexico— have revealed the discovery of an important archaeological piece belonging to the ancient Mayan culture, which inhabited the area sometimes during 400 AD. The ‘controversial statue consists of a snake that surrounds the figure of a small ‘ALIEN humanoid’ seen in a profile view, holding a human head. Notice the strange head and oval-shaped eyes.
The fascinating piece contains four inlays of mineral such as obsidian, turquoise, jade and shell, and was found by public workers in the Maxtaloyan community— in the upper part of the mentioned municipality—while improvement works were being carried out.
According to ‘El Sol de Puebla‘, the discovery is “a fundamental sample of the Mayan culture that for a long time inhabited the region, settling in the present day municipality, leaving important vestiges.”
Rafael Julián Montiel, in charge of the museum of Xiutetelco, said that since this area is adjacent to the archaeological zone of Cantona, among other communities, more pieces of this type could be found. In the near future—and especially during construction works—experts will monitor the area in hopes of discovering similar artifacts and preventing damage to possible future discoveries.
Likewise, the director of the museum added that Maxtaloyan is home to a volcano, similar to that of the community of ‘Los Humeros’ in the municipality of Chignautla, which has already erupted in the past, warning that there is danger of the volcano erupting and burying an entire prehispanic settlement.
”At the moment, more than 5 thousand pieces have been discovered in several points of this municipality. All of them have been taken care of and are exhibited in the museum, which receives a large number of visitors who are eager to learn more about the ancestral wealth that Xiutetelco has.”
Experts have not yet concluded what exactly the newly discovered figurine represents, embodied in the ancient Mayan sculpture.
This has led to the emergence of several theories among those who have had a chance to see it in person.
Some people undoubtedly see a classic “gray” alien that holds a human head while others add that the serpent may symbolize an ancient “reptilian deity.”
Many would agree that the ancient statue clearly depicts a gray alien—with his elongated head, and oval shapedeyes.
4th man to walk on the moon makes surprising claims about Aliens
4th man to walk on the moon makes surprising claims about Aliens
Alan Bean—the fourth man to walk on the surface of our moon—says he ‘knows the truth’ about aliens.
According to the former Apollo 12 pilot, aliens have yet to visit Earth our planet and if they did, they would have made contact already. In an interview, the former astronaut confessed that he does not believe that “someone outside the world has visited the Earth”, but despite that, he is convinced that we are not Alone in the Universe.
Even though there is ‘abundant evidence’ that we are being contact by alien civilizations, one of the few humans to have set foot on Earth’s moon says that he knows the truth about extraterrestrials and that if ‘they’ had visited Earth, they would have already made contact
The former NASA pilot has said that advanced alien civilizations would be ‘more altruistic and friendly’ and would have announced their ‘peaceful’ arrival.
Interestingly, Bean followed the footsteps of some of his colleagues who developed an immense interest in countless theories about alien life.
However, while speaking to Megan Palin with News.com.au, the former astronaut said: “I do not believe that anyone from outer space has ever visited the Earth. One of the reasons I don’t believe they have been here is that civilizations that are more advanced are more altruistic and friendly — like Earth, which is better than it used to be — so they would have landed and said ‘we come in peace and we know from our studies you have cancer that kills people, we solved that problem 50 years ago, here’s the gadget we put on a person’s chest that will cure it, we will show you how to make it’.”
The former NASA moonwalker explained that when we finally obtain the ability to travel to distant alien worlds, ‘ in around 1,000 years’, mankind would help aliens in distant parts of the universe by teaching them all of our cures.
Bean continued: “There are so many billions of stars and these stars have planets around them so there must be statistically many planets around many stars that have formed life,’ he said. Maybe some of them are like our life was 100,000 years ago, and some of them are like we are now, and there are probably some out there that are 10,000 years in the future from where we are now.”
However, Dr. Edgar Mitchell, Apollo 14 Astronaut, Air Force Captain, and Founder of the Institute of Noetic Sciences thinks otherwise:
“Yes there have been crashed craft, and bodies recovered. We are not alone in the universe, they have been coming here for a long time.”(source)
Furthermore, Dr. Brian O’Leary, Former NASA Astronaut and, Princeton Physics Professor said that: “There is abundant evidence that we are being contacted, that civilizations have been monitoring us for a very long time that their appearance is bizarre from any type of traditional materialistic western point of view. That these visitors use the technologies of consciousness, they use toroids, they use co-rotating magnetic disks for their propulsion systems, which seems to be a common denominator of the UFO phenomenon.”(source)
VIDEOHet Amerikaanse ruimtevaartbedrijf SpaceX heeft zijn Falcon 9-raket gelanceerd met een gerecycleerde eerste trap. Dat meldt het bedrijf van Tesla-topman Elon Musk. Het gaat om de eerste lancering ooit waarbij een raket gebruikt werd voor twee verschillende missies. Het bedrijf wil door de recuperatie en recyclage van onderdelen de lanceerkosten drukken.
De draagraket met een telecommunicatiesatelliet van het Luxemburgse bedrijf SES werd gelanceerd vanop de basis in Cape Canaveral om 18.27 uur plaatselijke tijd (23.27 uur Belgische tijd). De eerste trap, die 41 meter hoog is en na 2 minuten en 41 seconden loskomt van de rest van de raket, keerde terug naar de aarde en werd succesvol opgevangen door een platform op zee, dat de naam 'Of Course I Still Love You' kreeg.
De trap werd eerder al gebruikt in april 2016 voor de lancering van een Dragon-capsule naar het internationaal ruimtestation ISS voor een eerste bevoorradingsmissie in het kader van een contract met NASA
Tweede lancering "Ongelooflijk trots op het SpaceX-team om deze mijlpaal in de ruimtevaart te bereiken. Het volgende doel is een tweede lancering in 24 uur", tweette CEO Elon Musk na de lancering, aldus CNN.
SpaceX heeft al veertien pogingen ondernomen om de trap te recupereren, en in negen gevallen lukte dat ook. Volgens algemeen directeur Gwynne Shotwell van SpaceX wil het bedrijf met de recuperatie van de trappen de kosten voor de lancering met 30 procent verminderen. Elke lancering kost ongeveer 62 miljoen dollar (58 miljoen euro).
AUSTRALISCHE ASTRONOMEN VRAGEN HULP AAN PUBLIEK OM ONBEKENDE PLANEET TE VINDEN ( VIDEO )
AUSTRALISCHE ASTRONOMEN VRAGEN HULP AAN PUBLIEK OM ONBEKENDE PLANEET TE VINDEN ( VIDEO )
Op 30 december 1983 verscheen er een artikel in de Washington Post waarin werd gesteld dat er een mysterieus hemellichaam was ontdekt in de richting van het sterrenbeeld Orion.
Op 30 december 2016 verschijnt er een bericht bij NASA waarin wordt geclaimd dat men de net ontdekte Planet Nine kan vinden in de richting van de sterrenbeelden Orion en Stier.
Het is niet toevallig dat Planet Nine net wordt ontdekt. Het is uiteraard dezelfde planeet die in 1983 is ontdekt, alleen was toen de tijd nog niet rijp om dit aan het grote publiek bekend te maken. De reden is onder andere dat de elite voldoende tijd nodig had om haar grote ondergrondse schuilplaatsen voor te bereiden.
Planet Nine is dan ook niets anders dan een voorzichtige bekendmaking van de onbekende planeet Nibiru oftewel Planet X.
“Er is iets net buiten de verste regionen van ons zonnestelsel dat schijnt te trekken aan Uranus en Neptunus. Er is een zwaartekracht actief die de twee reuzenplaneten blijft verstoren, waardoor er onregelmatigheden in haar omloopbanen ontstaan. Deze kracht wijst op een aanwezigheid ver weg van een onzichtbaar groot object dat heel goed de lang gezochte Planeet X zou kunnen zijn”.
“Er is door een ruimtetelescoop van NASA een hemellichaam ontdekt in de richting van het sterrenbeeld Orion, dat mogelijk zo groot is als de enorme planeet Jupiter en dat zich zo dichtbij de aarde bevindt dat het onderdeel is van ons zonnestelsel”.
Men wist dat er “iets” was, omdat dit was ontdekt door de IRAS infrarood telescoop, maar zoals Dr. Gerry Neugebauer, hoofd van het IRAS onderzoeksteam destijds zei: “Het enige dat ik u kan vertellen is dat wij niet weten wat het is”.
Een onbekend object, gevonden in de richting van het Orion sterrenbeeld waar vervolgens de eerstvolgende ruim 30 jaar over wordt gezwegen en waar nu ineens in 2016 een Planet Nine wordt ontdekt in de richting van het Orion sterrenbeeld.
In de loop van 2016 komen er steeds meer verhalen over Planet Nine zoals de vraag op de bekende website Space.com of Planet Nine misschien wel verantwoordelijk is voor het kantelen van de zon. Op Forbes verscheen in dezelfde maand een artikel waarin stond dat Planet Nine wel eens verantwoordelijk zou kunnen zijn voor alle verstoringen in ons zonnestelsel.
En plots schrijft niemand meer over nepnieuws of aluhoedjes, want dan opeens is het wél echt.
Natuurlijk noemen ze deze planeet Planet Nine en niet Nibiru of Planet X, omdat dit een slapende massa teveel wakker zou maken en doen inzien dat ze, op z'n minst, meer dan 30 jaar voor de gek zijn gehouden, terwijl de elite zich bezighield met haar voorbereidingen.
Naast alle andere verstoringen die optreden in ons zonnestelsel zoals steeds heftigere aardbevingen, meer en grotere vulkaanuitbarstingen en een steeds groter wordende stroom asteroïden, doet zich nog iets bijzonders voor.
Een mysterieus “iets” zorgt voor een zodanig heftige zonnewind dat zelfs NASA niet in staat schijnt te zijn om dit te meten.
De zonnewind is een stroom van geladen deeltjes die ontsnapt aan het oppervlak van de Zon.
Het is als een geweldige golf energie die de aarde raakt en ook dit probeert men te verbergen.
Iemand die de voorbereidingen van de elite op de komst van de planeet Nibiru nauwlettend heeft gevolgd, is onderzoeker Bob Fletcher. In de onderstaande video vertelt hij uitgebreid over de verschillende aspecten van die voorbereidingen.
Hoe ze zich voorbereiden op een “grote gebeurtenis” en hoe ze enorme hoeveelheden voedsel en dergelijke hebben overgebracht naar geheime ondergrondse schuilplaatsen.
Ook gaat hij in op de vele miljarden dollars aan “verdwenen geld” (black budget) en de vele redenen waarom hij denkt dat de 1 procent zich al lange tijd heeft voorbereid op een “bijbelse gebeurtenis”.
The MetroSpiritual: Disclosing UFO government secrets could help heal a divided nation
The MetroSpiritual: Disclosing UFO government secrets could help heal a divided nation
If everyone were to demand the government release all UFO and ET files, we just might solve the universe’s greatest mystery.
If America can handle the shock and awe of Donald Trump being the leader of the free world, then the reality of UFOs and extraterrestrials living among us should be easy for most people to comprehend.
With our country so divided, I can't help thinking that now is the perfect time for this subject to finally be moved from the paranormal fringes and into the mainstream norm.
If everyone were to come together and demand under the Freedom Of Information Act that our government should release all UFO/ET files, we might just get some answers to the age-old questions of “Where do we come from?” and “Why are we here?”
This seems like a much better focus for our country instead of Trump's twisted tweets — and may even bring us closer together as a country.
"I occasionally think how quickly our differences worldwide would vanish if we were facing an alien threat from outside this world. And yet, I ask, is there not an alien force already among us?" — Ronald Reagan
Among U.S Presidents, Reagan wasn’t alone when it came to a fascination with, if not an outright belief in, UFOs.
Franklin Roosevelt, Dwight Eisenhower, Richard Nixon and Jimmy Carter have all reported seeing UFOs and likely believed in extraterrestrial beings.
Even former president George W. Bush alluded to the existence of aliens on a recent episode of Jimmy Kimmel’s show. When asked about aliens and if he knew any "really great secrets" that he wasn't allowed to share with anyone, Bush, with a sly smile, admitted that he did.
Many UFO researchers had long hoped Hillary Clinton was going to be the first President to reveal what the government really knows after she hinted about it during her failed run for the White House.
For the truth to emerge, it would now be up to President Trump, though so far he has yet to show any interest in doing so.
But it does seem like ETs have shown an interest in keeping tabs on Trump. On two separate occasions UFOs have been spotted around his aircraft. One witness photographed a UFO following Trump's helicopter back on Aug. 15, 2015, at the Iowa State Fair in Des Moines.
More recently, FOX 10 News in Phoenix aired a video of two UFOs around Trump's plane as it traveled towards Washington for his inauguration in January. Maybe the aliens, like many earthlings, couldn’t believe he was elected and just had to see it to believe it!
Maybe Trump will finally be the one to disclose what’s in all those government UFO files, though most researchers doubt it — which means it may be up to the ETs to decide to make themselves known.
If and when that happens, one thing is for sure: People's differences will seem very small in comparison to finally solving the greatest mystery in the universe.
Of all the pop-punk bands to emerge in the 1990s, few achieved success like Blink-182. Massive hits like “What’s My Age Again?” and “All the Small Things” fueled its distinct brand of cheery-cum-snotty adolescence. By October 2001, the band could draw 15,000 eager fans to Maryland’s Merriweather Post Pavilion. There the crowd watched as Blink-182, then composed of Mark Hoppus, Travis Barker and Tom DeLonge, performed in front of a giant four-letter word set ablaze.
But all flaming swear signs must burn out. The band went on hiatus between 2005 and 2009. In 2015, four years after the New York Times declared that, “no punk band of the 1990s has been more influential than Blink-182,” guitarist and vocalist DeLonge walked away. Hoppus and Barker, in a statement to Rolling Stone, said that DeLonge had left Blink-182 “indefinitely.” The band continued without him.
A different kind of stardom — space, and the aliens who lived there — seduced DeLonge.
Now 41, DeLonge has found success in his post-punk pursuit. In February, the Arizona-based International UFO Congress, which each year holds the largest convention of UFO investigators in the world, awarded DeLonge its UFO researcher of the year award. In March, DeLonge published a book, “Sekret Machines: Gods, Man, & War,” with occult historian Peter Levenda. The book, DeLonge said, marked the first nonfiction entry in a sweeping project that includes science-fiction novels, concept albums and movies.
All of those works are related, in one way or another, to a subject DeLonge calls “the Phenomenon.”
More than 20 years of research and reflection led to the new book. DeLonge’s perspective turned to the heavens in early adolescence, he told The Washington Post in a recent phone interview, after witnessing the conflict between his mother, a devout Christian, and his father, who was “not religious at all.” He began to wonder if something sinister was at work.
“I realized early on there was something odd with the human life experience,” DeLonge said. “There’s all these wars. I had a really difficult, broken family. I got kicked out of high school.”
DeLonge’s phenomenon is a grand unified theory of extraterrestrial encounters. It encompasses virtually all aspects of human culture, including religion, technology, media and science. “It is the UFO phenomenon, to be sure, but that is a box too small to contain it in all its glory,” DeLonge and Levenda wrote in their new book, “as no two experts can agree on what it is.” In “Sekret Machines,” a metaphor for the phenomenon emerges: the human experience as cargo cult.
During World War II, indigenous tribes in the South Pacific, who rarely interacted with outsiders, observed planes airdropping food and medicine. “To this day there are religions based on worshiping those planes,” DeLonge said, “because they did not know what they were.”
There is no question that cargo cults have existed on our planet. One group of villagers in the Vanuatu islands honor a holy savior named John Frum, the spirit of an American who lives in a nearby volcano. (It has been speculated that the name John Frum came from World War II soldiers who greeted the villagers, saying, “I’m John from America.”)
“John promised he’ll bring planeloads and shiploads of cargo to us from America if we pray to him,” one village elder told a Smithsonian magazine reporter who visited the island in 2006. “Radios, TVs, trucks, boats, watches, iceboxes, medicine, Coca-Cola and many other wonderful things.”
Similar events happened on an interplanetary scale, DeLonge said. “Whether it is Joseph Smith meeting an angel and forming the Mormon religion, or it’s the star of Bethlehem or light hovering over a manger,” he said, “what happens is, is people see these things and they create religions off of them. We wanted to say, ‘Well, hey, we are all some form of a cargo cult.’ The question is, why?”
DeLonge’s book will not convince any skeptics about the reality of aliens. Sufficient evidence already exists, DeLonge told The Post, citing the scale of the universe. “There are trillions of galaxies,” he said. “There’s trillions of planets within each galaxy, and people go, ‘Are we alone?’ ” DeLonge dismissed his own question with a word Blink-182 once set on fire.
He also had little time for those who doubt whether aliens had visited Earth. “It’s all out there already,” DeLonge said. “It’s so frustrating when people say they’re waiting for some big person to say something. Well, there’s been a hundred books, national press events in D.C., meetings in Congress and multi-star generals on the record.”
There is no evidence of contact between aliens and humans, according to scientific consensus. “At the moment, life on Earth is the only known life in the universe, but there are compelling arguments to suggest we are not alone,” astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson wrote in 2003.
When Bill Clinton was president, he denied that the White House had proof of aliens. “No, as far as I know, an alien spacecraft did not crash in Roswell, New Mexico, in 1947,” Clinton said during a 1995 speech while in Ireland, responding to a letter sent by Ryan, a 13-year-old resident of Belfast. “And Ryan, if the United States Air Force did recover alien bodies, they didn’t tell me about it, either, and I want to know.”
(As recently as Monday, scientists publicly dismissed the idea. “I do not believe that anyone from outer space has ever visited the Earth,” said Alan Bean, 85, the fourth person to walk on the Moon, to an Australian newspaper.)
In his search for information, DeLonge said he made his way into upper echelons of the American government. In October, the Wall Street Journal reported that DeLonge corresponded with John Podesta, the chair for Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign, according to emails WikiLeaks had released; Podesta, for his part, has frequently advocated for the United States to declassify any information regarding Area 51 or other UFO incidents.
It took DeLonge a year, but he managed to set up “very high level meetings” with members of the Defense Department, he said. “And I got to the people that are in charge of this stuff.” He declined to confirm to The Washington Post whether he had met with Podesta or any specific government officials. “I can’t comment on who I met with,” he said, “or what those meetings were about.”
A Defense Department spokesman said in an email to The Washington Post that neither the Defense Department’s Community Relations nor the Air Force had records of such a meeting. The spokesman “did see one open source story that named generals who supposedly worked with Mr. DeLonge.” Both of the generals mentioned had retired, the representative said, the first in October 2013 and the other in June of 2014.
Several scientists involved in the search for extraterrestrial intelligence, or SETI, are optimistic that any alien life advanced enough to happen upon Earth would also be benevolent. “I doubt aliens would drop what they’re doing to come over here and wipe out Clapham Junction — why would they do that?” Seth Shostak, senior astronomer at the SETI Institute in California, told the Guardian in July. “They probably have what we have at home — except for our culture, maybe they are big Cliff Richard fans or like our reality television.”
But DeLonge’s air of secrecy — and the government’s — stemmed from the danger that alien contact posed, the former Blink-182 guitarist said. It was a pessimistic view of alien intelligence, a fear shared by physicist Stephen Hawking (though Hawking still supports SETI initiatives such as Breakthrough Listen). DeLonge had been “briefed on things” that caused him to lose sleep “for multiple days on end,” he said. “Because it really, really threw me down the stairs.”
DeLonge’s view was not completely dour, however. Far from it. He said that exposing the phenomenon as a malevolent extraterrestrial influence would persuade humans around the world to cooperate. He likened current global conflicts to someone incorrectly fighting a fire. “When I was in high school, I wanted to be a firefighter. I learned that you spray the base of the flame. You squirt water on the fuel, not the flame itself,” DeLonge said.
“I feel that lot of the fighting taking place across the world, when we drop bombs — that’s spraying on the flames. The fuel of all these wars are our belief systems. And the sooner we attack that,” he said, “that we’ve been duped about our belief systems, maybe we’ll start to realize we’re much more connected.”
While UFO sightings are near record highs, those standing up to scrutiny are at record lows, according to the 2016 Canadian UFO Survey.
A total of 1,131 UFO sightings were reported last year across Canada, the fifth year in a row the number has exceeded 1,000.
Only four per cent of those could not be explained, said Chris Rutkowski, of Winnipeg-based Ufology Research, which produced the survey with help from investigators and researchers across the country. That’s the lowest rate in 28 years of study and half the previous low of 8 per cent.
"What that means is we’re doing a better job of investigating cases," Rutkowski said.
"The cases are often reported from very good observers, like pilots and nature photographers, but we are eventually able to explain them."
That doesn’t mean he’s stopped believing in extraterrestrial life.
"As an astronomer, that is my belief. We’re just a matter of five to 10 years away from discovering hard evidence of life outside our solar system," he said.
Nearly 40 per cent of UFO sightings were in June, July and August, the 2016 survey found. Lights in the sky accounted for 55 per cent of sightings, while "close encounters" made up less than one per cent.
Quebec led the country with 38.5 per cent of sightings, even though it accounts for less than 24 per cent of the population. Ontario, with 39 per cent of the population, had 26 per cent of sightings, and British Columbia (13 per cent of population) had 17 per cent.
The most popular shape of UFO reported in 2016 was a simple point of light (57 per cent).
Other shapes reported were triangle (four per cent), ball (nine per cent), cigar (three per cent) and fireball (five per cent). "Flying saucers" were reported only 48 times (five per cent) in 2016.
The annual UFO survey was initiated in 1989. In the past 28 years, 18,038 Canadian reports have been catalogued, significantly higher than the files of the United States Air Force’s infamous Project Blue Book, which investigated and recorded 12,618 UFO reports from around the world from 1947 to 1969.
Here are eight places to head for the best chance of catching a glimpse of a UFO.
1. Area 51, Nevada, USA
Area 51 is one of the most infamous places on the planet. A highly classified Air Force base, some believe the remains of a UFO that crashed in Roswell are hidden inside. Many UFO sightings have been made in the area.

2. The Nullabor, Australia
This remote area in the Australian Outback has been a hotbed of UFO sightings since the 1950s. Many travellers claim to have been chased by UFOs while driving down the area’s empty roads.
3. The M Triangle, Russia
The Molyobka Triangle is located in the the Ural mountains and is considered the place to go to spot alien activity in Russia. For over 100 years, locals in the area have claimed to see lights and strange symbols in the sky, as well as encountering translucent beings.
4. Roswell, New Mexico, USA
For alien enthusiasts, there is no better place than Roswell for UFO spotting. The site is where an alien spaceship allegedly crashed in 1947 (before being secretly transported to Area 51 by shady government officials). Roswell’s UFO Museum and Research Center hosts events where those who claim to have been abducted share their experiences. The area also boasts the world’s only spaceship-shaped McDonald’s.
5. Warminster, England
The Salisbury Plain in Wiltshire is home to the mysterious stone circles of Avebury as well as Stonehenge. Warminster hit headlines worldwide in the 1960s and 1970s when “alien sounds” were heard in the area, attracting UFO fanatics who flocked there from around the globe to watch the skies. In recent years crop circles have also been discovered nearby.
6. El Enladrillado, Chile
Chile’s tourist board created the country’s first UFO trail after a flurry of extraterrestrial sightings in El Enladrillado in 2008. Passing through the Andes, the 30km trail passes through the sites where UFOs have been spotted before finishing at El Enladrillado, which is alleged to be a landing pad for alien spaceships.
7. Wycliffe Well, Australia
The self-proclaimed UFO capital of Australia, Wycliffe Well has been a hotbed of alien activity since WWII. Locals report seeing lights in the sky fairly frequently, and during the Second World War strange happenings were so common that a serviceman stationed there kept a log book of sightings.
8. Bonnybridge, Scotland
Bonnybridge is located in what is referred to as “The Falkirk Triangle” by UFO experts. This area between Stirling, Fife and the outskirts of Edinburgh is apparently an extraterrestrial hot spot – over 300 sightings are reported each year.
Bright lights, light-fingered aliens: all part of annual report on UFO sightings
Bright lights, light-fingered aliens: all part of annual report on UFO sightings

The Canadian Press Published Friday, March 31, 2017 1:51AM EDT
WINNIPEG -- Bright lights, airplane near-misses and light-fingered aliens with a penchant for cool shades are all part of the annual report on UFO sightings in Canada.
The 2016 Canadian UFO Survey produced by Winnipeg-based Ufology Research was released this week. In total, there were 1,131 sightings of unidentified flying objects reported across Canada.
In a first for the 28 years the study has been conducted, only four per cent of the sightings could not be explained. Study author Chris Rutkowski said that record-low rating is likely the result of more careful scrutiny of raw report information available.
Summer is the big time of year for UFO sightings and mostly they were simply lights that people saw in the sky.
The provinces with the largest populations had the most reports, so Quebec led the country with 38.5 per cent of the sightings, while Ontario had 26 per cent and British Columbia had 17 per cent.
The most popular shape of UFO reported in 2016 was a simple point source of light (57 per cent). Other shapes reported were triangle (four per cent), ball (nine per cent), cigar (three per cent) and fireball (five per cent). The classic "flying saucer" was only reported 48 times.
As for what the study calls "unknowns," they included such cases as the "gigantic, disc-shaped object with searchlights" that was seen moving over the mountains in North Vancouver, and the boomerang-shaped "cluster of stars" that moved across the sky near St. Thomas, Ont.
There was also the commercial airplane over Toronto that had a near miss with an object while on a routine flight on Nov. 14.
"The flight crew noticed an object directly ahead on their flight path. The object appeared to be solid, approximately five to eight feet in diameter and shaped like an upright doughnut or inner tube," said the study.
"Cabin crew members received minor injuries when evasive action was taken. While the object was not likely a balloon and was suggested to be a drone, it was noted that drones could not fly at that altitude and distance."
The study said the Transportation Safety Board ruled the incident as "a near collision with an unidentified airborne object."
Close encounter cases are in the minority, but high on the strangeness scale.
Those included a man in Cornwall, P.E.I., who reported that a thin, six-foot-tall, long-fingered white alien in a black suit spoke to him in his bedroom before leaving by walking through a wall.
A man in Lanaudiere, Que., said he was transported into a field of plants and plunged into a bathtub "where he was surrounded by three green, big-eyed humanoid creatures who communicated with him telepathically."
Not all close encouters are so dramatic, however. One person in Tecumseh, Ont., reported that an alien stole his sunglasses and belt, while someone from Rimouski, Que., filed a report which read simply: "They contacted me!"
Brit Rockstar Reveals Encounters With Aliens After Sighting UFOs
Brit Rockstar Reveals Encounters With Aliens After Sighting UFOs
A musician has shared the story of his unexpected encounters with aliens, as well as physic communication with ETs.
Famous British rocker Dave Davies, 70, claimed he first observed UFOs in northern Devon sky. The Kinks guitarist, who is a believer of life in space, even stated aliens have already made contact with humans.
He further said that the government has knowledge of extraterrestrial life, but did not comment on the alleged wide-scale cover-up.
The revelations have come after Apollo astronaut Alan Bean disclosed that he believes aliens exist out there.
The rock musician, however, does not think extraterrestrials have touched down on Earth.
According to Davies, he began receiving physic impressions or communications from ETs after seeing them in the sky.
Davies told in an interview that he had several experiences of seeing UFOs and they were interesting. He shared his UFO sightings in north Devon, England where he spotted lights and zigzags in the skies.
Rolling Stone Magazine named Davies as one of the 100 greatest guitarists of all time. He collaborated with Ray Davies, older brother, in The Kinks.
Dave explained that after experiencing with a UFO, he has been keeping those feelings, and then getting into his subconscious and super-conscious.
He continued that he started to understand those feelings when he got into ufology.

Date of sighting: March 30, 2017
Location of sighting: Unknown
From the sound of it, I would say this UFO was seen in Scotland or England, but not sure on that. Still there eyewitness posted it yesterday and is fantastic! He catches several UFOs and as he is talking and says hello to a second one, the UFO hesitates, as if it can hear him, or read his thoughts, then continues on its way following the other. I will ask him where he recorded this, and will update soon.
Multiple UFOs caught on tape over Atlanta, Georgia 29-Mar-2017
Multiple UFOs caught on tape over Atlanta, Georgia 29-Mar-2017
This UFO video was filmed in the sky above Atlanta in Georgia on Wednesday, 29th March 2017.
The video was shot on an iPhone around 3am on March 29, 2017. For perspective, the camera is shooting south (from NW side of Atlanta). It was 5 orange lights in a “V” formation with one blue light underneath. There were a few other orange lights that flanked the main formation and possibly one in the distance beyond the rest. It’s hard to see clearly because we were filming through the wood line. Once the lights moved into formation, we heard helicopters coming from the north and moving south — but we couldn’t see them. They sounded like they were flying in big circles, and they did that for hours (until I had to leave). The lights moved slightly up and down every so often but always stayed in formation. What I saw with my eyes was very different than on the footage. Very weird. There was no info online talking about why the helicopters were circling all night. That is also weird. Atlanta PD and all the news outlets are very good about letting us know that kind of stuff.
He has BS and MS degrees in Physics from University of Chicago. As a nuclear physicist for a number of major corporations and military contractors, he worked on secret projects to build nuclear aircraft, fission and fusion rockets, and nuclear power plants to be used in outer space. He was the first civilian to investigate the Roswell UFO incident and has since become known as the Father of Roswell and the Flying Saucer Physicist. Is this enough to believe Stanton T. Friedman when he gives this kind of warning to his fellow Earthlings?
I think they are here. I think they are here to quarantine us, keep us from going out there. With our track record – we’re evil.
Uh-oh. In a new interview, Stanton Friedman addresses the recent Wikileaks releases of formerly-classified CIA documents on UFO sightings around the world. He believes these documents should tell everyone else what he already knows.
We have enough to prove without a shadow of a doubt that Planet Earth is being visited [by aliens].
Do we? Even if the redacted portions of those documents were revealed, it doesn’t seem they contain the “beyond a shadow of a doubt” missing link. Perhaps he’s implying that someone or some organization is keeping that crucial piece of information from us.
This is kept from people because who would want the world in upheaval? There would be mass panic and distress.
He’s right about that. Just the announcement of a potential big snowstorm can cause mass panic. Imagine what a prediction of a 50% chance of alien encounters would do. But this time, Friedman reveals that it’s not governments that are keeping the truth from us, it’s the aliens already on Earth themselves.
If they (the aliens) want to make themselves known, it’s easy – they will.
How much more evil do we have to get for this to happen? Are they secretly sabotaging space travel already? Elon Musk might think so after the problems SpaceX has encountered. Or perhaps they have infiltrated the space program and stopped the return of humans to the moon and any exploration beyond. Is Friedman warning the current administration and private space corporations to back off on going to Mars? Or is he predicting a military conflict that will be caused by the first verified revelation that a nation has reverse-engineered alien technology?
The first country to replicate [alien] technology will rule the roost if they can build it. It’s political too – the US says ‘are we ready to put out anything if the Russians don’t or the Chinese don’t.
Would that trigger a war? Probably. Would it trigger the alien “quarantine” Friedman warns about? Who knows? What would that look like? Armed aliens guarding all of the world’s major launch pads? A Dyson sphere around the planet to keep us in?
Friedman has a long history with military and government contractors and in the field of ufology. Is it time for doubters to start listening to him a little more closely?
Researchers in England are growing small human brains in their laboratories. Even more lab-grown-mind-boggling, they grew the brains out of human skin cells. Are these tiny brains thinking that this is pretty…
Despite the epic THX-mastered theatrics of science fiction soundtracks, space is a cold, airless vacuum in which sound does not travel. Nevertheless, celestial objects still produce their own sounds which can sometimes be heard within their own atmospheres or with special instruments. Just as a star’s or planet’s physical composition can reveal much information about its history, so too can the sounds that they emit. To pioneer the study of these sounds, researchers at the University of New South Wales Sydney have devised a method of recording and analyzing the sounds coming from the insides of stars in order to reveal their cosmic origin stories.
Each star technically has its own unique sound that could be used to identify it.
The team of astrophysicists used NASA’s Kepler space observatory to record ‘starquakes’ – the massive, turbulent oscillations of energy and plasma inside the hearts of 48 different Red Giant stars in two clusters. Using these otherwordly sounds alone, the researchers were able to correctly determine the directions of each of the stars’ spins. According to UNSW Sydney’s Dennis Stello, this approach could open up completely new avenues of sound-based astronomical research:
Just as seismologists use earthquakes to understand the interior of our planet, we use starquakes to understand the interior of stars. Our new study provides the first evidence that this approach is a powerful way to gain insights into processes that occurred billions of years ago, close to the beginning of the universe.
The authors of this research published in Nature Astronomy claim that the spins of close to 70% of the stars studied in each cluster were closely aligned, meaning that they likely preserved some of their initial directions and momentum after the violent celestial explosions which created them:
It’s remarkable that the imprint of these initial conditions can still be seen billions of years later, by studying tiny oscillations in stars that are many light years away.
It’s a mystifying thought: the songs of the stars are like the soundtrack of the very origin of the universe. Sounds like one hell of a prog rock concept album if you ask me.
In some ways, the sound of the Big Bang is still being sung by the universe’s oldest stars.
An experimental ‘ink’ has allowed scientists at the University of Bristol to print living human tissues. The team of researchers has published their results in Advanced Healthcare Materials, and believes this new…
A study published this month in the journal Biomaterials has proven once again that spinach is basically the best superfood to ever exist. A team of scientists from Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI), the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and Arkansas State University-Jonesboro have successfully used spinach leaves to grow human heart tissue.
While 3D printing definitely has a future in the medical sciences, the technology is still too new and does not have the ability to generate the intricate vascular systems a human heart needs in order to pump blood effectively. In simple terms, 3D printers can give you sledgehammers when you need needle points. However, using existing biological material, such as a plant, does provide the intricate vein system required, but trying to grow human tissue inside a plant is basically impossible. The trick is keeping the veins, but getting rid of the plant.
Worcester Polytechnic Institute
The authors of the paper wrote,
Plants and animals exploit fundamentally different approaches to transporting fluids, chemicals and macromolecules, yet there are surprising similarities in their vascular network structures… The development of decellularized plants for scaffolding opens up the potential for a new branch of science that investigates the mimicry between plant and animal.
So how did the research team keep the intricate vein system needed? Detergent. Using spinach leaves, the team bathed the leafy salad greens in chemical detergents to remove its plant cells, but maintain the cellulose, the fibrous building block of plants. More importantly, cellulose is biocompatible which means that animal cells can build upon it as effectively as plant cells can. Infact, many medical practices already use plant based cellulose in healing wounds and mending cartilage.
Once the leaf’s plant cells were completely removed, all that remained was the cellulose vein structure of the spinach. The team then immersed the ex-spinach into a bath of human cells, and allowed the cells to form around the veins, creating a sort of mini heart. Once the human cells latched onto and successfully grew around the veins of the spinach leaf, the team pumped fluid and microbeads through the vein system to simulate blood flow. As it turns out, the spinach veins handled the concoction perfectly.
While the team admits there is still plenty of work to be done, the use of plant based cellulose in the production of organs, such as hearts, is incredibly efficient, inexpensive, and has almost no environmental impact compared to creating synthetic organs from plastic or other human made materials. The team concludes by explaining that,
By exploiting the benign chemistry of plant tissue scaffolds, we could address the many limitations and high costs of synthetic, complex composite materials. Plants can be easily grown using good agricultural practices and under controlled environments. By combining environmentally friendly plant tissue with perfusion-based decellularization, we have shown that there can be a sustainable solution for pre-vascularized tissue engineering scaffolds.
In other words, your next heart could be a nice leafy green grown by good old Mother Nature. Until then, keep eating your veggies kids, they are better for you than you know.
Music has long been considered a sort of “universal language,” capable of conveying feeling and emotion within compositions that surpass barriers presented by verbal communication and culture. From the primitive tribal drumming…
UFO and secret alien base reports found in declassified U.S. Forest Service documents
UFO and secret alien base reports found in declassified U.S. Forest Service documents
The UFO files of the U.S. Forest Service (USFS) have been declassified. There are 20 pages in the files, and although there is a dubious claim about the construction of a secret alien base and an unconvincing UFO photo, there is an interesting UFO report from U.S. Air Force personnel at a radar station in Montana.
The Forest Service UFO files were obtained via a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request by John Greenewald. Greenewald runs TheBlackVault.com, a site that houses over one million declassified files obtained via FOIA requests.
Greenewald says he made the request in November, 2016 and received the files in February, 2017.
UFO Photo in Bighorn National Forest
The first report in the file is a letter and photographs from a man who says he caught something “very strange” in a photograph he took while visiting Lost Twin Lakes in Bighorn National Forest. The witness says he did not see or hear anything unusual while taking the picture, but he noticed an odd object in one of the photos when he reviewed them later. He speculates that perhaps it is a drone, but also says he did some research and did not find any drones that looked like the object in the image.

The photograph was taken at about 2:30 pm on September 12, 2015.

It is hard to make out what exactly the object in the image is, but the USFS files did not include a high resolution image. Greenewald says he did inquire if higher resolution images were available, but they were not.

Without better images, this blob of light and shadows could be anything, and is likely a bird in flight. Often vacation photos with weird objects that were not noted at the time of their taking turn out to be birds or bugs that look strange in photographs once they are reviewed back home.
The USFS did not include their response to the UFO photog, or if they responded at all.
UFO Sighting at Yaak Air Force Station in Kootenai National Forest
Following the UFO photos letter and was a copy of an article regarding Yaak Air Base. According to the article, Yaak Air Base was in operation from April, 1952 to July, 1960, as part of a number of stations throughout the country that served as an early warning system during the cold war in case of a potential Russian attack. The base was near Yaak, Montana, in the Kootenai National Forest.

For our purposes, the most interesting paragraph in the article is the last, and in the file provided to Greenewald, is highlighted in yellow.
The Yaak Radar Station also had its share of mystery, on Sept. 1 , 1952, Yaak, Montana. 4:45 a.m: Two USAF enlisted men, and three men using AN/FPS-3 radar set. Report visually sighting two small, varicolored lights becoming black silhouettes at dawn, and flying erratically for one hour. The crew at the radar station saw a, “dark, cigar shaped object,” right where the radar had the UFO pinpointed. What these people saw is a mystery to this day.
This is my favorite part of the USFA UFO files. Unfortunately, no further information is provided.
Alien Base Construction in Tonto National Forest
The most sensational claim in the files, and the one picked up by silly UK tabloids, is a report of a secret government installation being constructed that has something to do with aliens. The subject of the report is “Secret govt installation being built in the Salt River Canyon area on the TNF [Tonto National Forest].”

What is scary is that this is not far from my house. However, it does make it less scary for me that I do not believe an alien base was actually built there.
Here is a report regarding the call that was taken by David of the Forest Service on the morning of December 30, 2013 regarding UFOs, aliens and one detached head.
David received a call this morning at the front desk from a male caller reporting the construction of a secret government installation upstream from the Salt River Canyon past Pinal Creek (upstream from Roosevelt Lake). Aliens and at least one detached head are involved.
Caller claims to have seen construction cranes coming out the side of the cliffs, miniature stealth planes and UFOs, aliens and people working together at the site, aliens eating people. He found a severed head and claims to have pictures of some of this stuff.
Caller reported that he is 60, not crazy, and doesn’t do drugs. He said he had already called the “office at the lake,” but he didn’t know if those people were turning the other cheek or maybe those people have been paid off.
David had him leave a message with Bray.
Please let me know if t here are any Talking Points to be developed. I’m sure the Phoenix media will be all over this.
P.S. David and I aren’t doing drugs either.
The only other item in the files was a report in 2012 of a meteor or space junk that landed in George Washington & Jefferson National Forests and caused a fire. It was determined the fire was caused by a lightning strike. The report states, “Witnesses saw flaming space junk or satellite crash land in these mountains [Massanutten Range, Virginia] which may have caused the forest fire of last year: June 24, 2012, at around 1150PM Sunday.”
Such a "preparation without provocation" strategy would both protect American space assets and help prevent conflicts from flaring up in the final frontier, said Navy Vice Adm. Charles A. Richard, deputy commander of U.S. Strategic Command (USSTRATCOM).
"Just as nuclear assets deter aggression by convincing potential adversaries there's just no benefit to the attack, we have to maintain a space posture that communicates the same strategic message," Richard said on March 22 during a presentation at a Center for Strategic and International Studies conference in Washington, D.C. [The Most Dangerous Space Weapons Concepts]
"I submit [that] the best way to prevent war is to be prepared for war, and we're going to make sure that everyone knows we're going to be prepared to fight and win wars in all domains, to include space," he added.
The United States has long ruled "the ultimate high ground" of space, launching sharp-eyed satellites and other high-tech gear that have given the nation critical advantages on the battlefield. But that supremacy is under threat today, Richard said, citing reports that both China and Russia are developing a range of advanced anti-satellite (ASAT) technologies.
Indeed, space is no longer the "benign environment" it used to be, he said.
"While we're not at war in space, I don't think we can say we're exactly at peace, either," Richard said.
This changed situation in orbit is part of a larger struggle for control that's playing out around the globe, he added.
"Major power competition is back on the table in a way that we have not seen in the world for perhaps 15 or 20 years," Richard said. "That applies in all domains."
The United States should work to deter not just conflict, but also "bad behavior" in space, such as the 2007 Chinese ASAT test that created 3,400 new pieces of trackable orbital debris, Richard added.
"Our goal ultimately is to promote secure access to space so it can be explored for generations to come," he said. "While we view space as just another domain — like land, air, sea and cyber — it is still something special. It is still a domain that people look up to and dream. And it's USSTRATCOM's job to help keep it that way."
In the thin air of Mars, water easily boils. Still, previous research has unearthed ample evidence that Mars was once covered in water, with features resembling dry riverbeds and minerals that could have formed only in the presence of water. This suggests that the Martian atmosphere was once much thicker than it is today, with seas that could have supported life billions of years ago.
To learn more about how the atmosphere of Mars has changed over time, scientists in the new study analyzed data from NASA's Mars Atmosphere and Volatile Evolution (MAVEN) mission. They focused on argon, a gas that almost never chemically reacts with other elements.
The researchers examined two different isotopes of argon: the lighter argon-36 and the heavier argon-38. Each isotope of an element has different numbers of neutrons; for instance, argon-36 possesses 18 neutrons in its nucleus, while argon-38 has 20.
Argon-36 is more plentiful than its heavier counterpart, argon-38, at higher altitudes. This makes the lighter isotope more susceptible to getting stripped from the atmosphere by solar ultraviolet rays and by high-energy winds composed of particles from the sun.
The concentrations of the two argon isotopes at different heights in the Martian atmosphere suggest that 66 percent of Mars' argon has disappeared from there since the Red Planet formed, the researchers said. "The escape of gas to space might have played a major role, if not the major role, in changing the climate of Mars over time," said study lead author Bruce Jakosky, a planetary scientist at the University of Colorado Boulder.
Using this data on argon loss, the scientists then estimated the amount of other gases that Mars had lost the same way. Their findings suggested that the Martian atmosphere was thick with carbon dioxide, with the atmospheric pressure of this gas on Mars about the same as the atmospheric pressure of air on Earth at sea level, the study said.
Carbon dioxide is a "greenhouse gas," meaning it traps heat and can help warm planets. The loss of this carbon dioxide from the Red Planet may "tell us why the surface of Mars could have gone from habitable in ancient times to not being able to support life today," Jakosky told Space.com.
In addition, "we've identified a set of processes that might tell us more in general about the habitability of planets around other stars," he said.
Europe's ExoMars Rover Will Land in 1 of These 2 Spots on Mars in 2021
Europe's ExoMars Rover Will Land in 1 of These 2 Spots on Mars in 2021
By Mike Wall, Space.com Senior Writer
Mission managers have narrowed the landing-site candidates for the ExoMars 2020 rover down to two finalists, European Space Agency (ESA) officials announced today (March 28).
The life-hunting rover and its accompanying stationary platform will touch down at either Oxia Planum or Mawrth Vallis, two locations in Mars' northern hemisphere that harbor evidence of long-ago liquid water activity.
Neither site has been visited by a robotic explorer to date, though Mawrth Vallis was once a candidate for NASA's Mars rover Curiosity. (NASA ended up selecting the huge Gale Crater, inside which Curiosity landed in August 2012). [Photos: Europe's ExoMars Missions to Mars in Pictures]
"Both candidate sites would explore a period of ancient Martian history that hasn't been studied by previous missions," Jorge Vago, ESA's ExoMars rover project scientist, said in a statement.
A third site, called Aram Dorsum, had been under consideration as well. But Oxia Planum was selected for further study back in 2015, and Mawrth Vallis emerged as the second finalist after a recent two-day meeting attended by ExoMars team members and other Mars experts from academia and industry, ESA officials said.
"While all three sites under discussion would give us excellent opportunities to look for signatures of ancient biomarkers and gain new insights into the planet's wetter past, we can only carry two sites forward for further detailed analysis," Vago said.
Mission team members will continue studying the two finalist sites, assessing them from both a scientific and engineering perspective. This latter work will attempt to ensure that the ExoMars 2020 rover comes down in a safe, flat spot free of dangerous boulders. (Mission managers aim to guide the rover down inside a landing ellipse 75 miles long by 12 miles wide, or 120 by 19 kilometers.)
The final decision will likely be made about a year before the rover's planned 2020 launch, ESA officials said.
The rover and landing platform make up the second part of the two-phase ExoMars program, a project led by ESA with help from Roscosmos, Russia's federal space agency. The first part, which launched in March 2016, consisted of the Trace Gas Orbiter (TGO) and Schiaparelli, a landing demonstrator designed to prove out technologies required for the rover's 2021 touchdown.
The ExoMars 2020 rover will study the habitability of Mars and search for signs of past or present life. Part of its work will involve drilling up to 6.5 feet (2 meters) beneath the surface to collect samples shielded from the harsh Martian radiation environment.
Instruments aboard the stationary landing platform, for their part, "will provide context imaging at the landing site, and long-term climate monitoring and atmospheric investigations," ESA officials wrote in the statement.
TGO is currently working its way toward its final science orbit. Later this year, the orbiter should begin searching the Martian atmosphere for methane and other gases that could be signs of Red Planet life. The spacecraft will also serve as a communications link for the ExoMars rover and its handlers back on Earth.
A father-of-two chanced upon an unusual meteorological sighting - as he spotted a fleet of UFO-shaped clouds in the sky.
Miles Davis was driving through the town centre of Morriston, Swansea, when he spotted the spaceship-shaped formations.
The 49-year-old stopped his car and grabbed a camera to capture the natural spectacle - which he says looked 'like something out of a 50s' sci-fi film'.

WHAT ARE LENTICULAR CLOUDS?
Lenticular clouds are more or less isolated clouds, which form in the Earth's troposphere (the lowest level of the atmosphere).
They are saucer- or lens-shaped clouds, which are typically stationary in nature.
Lenticular clouds have been divided into three different categories, altocumulus standing lenticular, stratocumulus standing lenticular, and cirrocumulus standing lenticular, depending on the height at which they may be found above the surface of the Earth.
On account of their typical shapes, lenticular clouds have been mistakenly identified as Unidentified Flying Objects (UFOs) in the past.
Mr Davis, a full time carer for his wife, said: 'We had had interesting clouds all day after blanket grey for days on end.
'But these particular clouds didn't pop up until later on in the afternoon.
'I just happened to be in the right place at the right time.
'I was driving through town when I spotted them and I stopped as soon as it was safe so I could jump out my car and get some pictures.
'They do look very UFO like even if you don't have much of an imagination and the lighting was giving them this technicolour hue.
'They look like something out of a 1950s sc-fi B-movie with a limited budget, like a bad painting of UFOs. It was incredible.
'Trying to get my phone camera to focus on something thousands of miles away was tough but I'm really glad I got the photos.
'Everyone I've shown them to has really liked them and my wife thinks they're great.
'I wasn't keeping an eye on the local news that day so I'm not aware of any claims but I wouldn't be surprised at all if some people thought they'd experienced a UFO sighting.
'One guy I spoke to said he saw the same clouds over the valleys which is 25 - 30 miles away.
'They stuck around for a good few hours before they broke up or moved on.'
The lenticular clouds - lens-shaped clouds that form in the troposphere - are renowned for being confused for UFOs throughout history.
The 49-year-old stopped his car and grabbed a camera to capture the natural spectacle - which he says looked 'like something out of a 50s' sci-fi film'
The clouds are a rare spectacle and a treat for Mr Davis, who is a keen cloud spotter.
He said: 'Some days I will take up to ten photos a day. As soon as the weather is nice, I can just sit and watch the clouds go by, changing from one moment to the next.
Recently, astronomers announced the discovery that a star called TRAPPIST-1 is orbited by seven Earth-size planets. Three of the planets reside in the "habitable zone," the region around a star where liquid water is most likely to exist on the surface of a rocky planet. Other potentially habitable worlds have also been discovered in recent years, leaving many people wondering: How do we find out if these planets actually host life?
At Caltech, in the Exoplanet Technology Laboratory, or ET Lab, of Associate Professor of Astronomy Dimitri Mawet, researchers have been busy developing a new strategy for scanning exoplanets for biosignatures—signs of life such as oxygen molecules and methane. These chemicals—which don't naturally stick around for long because they bind with other chemicals—are abundant on Earth largely thanks to the living creatures that expel them. Finding both of these chemicals around another planet would be a strong indicator of the presence of life.
In two new papers to be published in the Astrophysical Journal and the Astronomical Journal, Mawet's team demonstrates how this new technique, called high-dispersion coronagraphy, could be used to look for extraterrestrial biosignatures with the planned Thirty Meter Telescope (TMT), which, when completed by the late 2020s, will be the world's largest optical telescope.
Using theoretical and laboratory models, the researchers show that this technique could detect biosignatures on Earth-like planets around M-dwarf stars, which are smaller and cooler than our sun and the most common type of star in the galaxy. The strategy could also be used on stars like our own sun, using future space telescopes such as NASA's proposed Habitable Exoplanet Imaging Mission (HabEx) and Large UV/Optical/IR Surveyor (LUVOIR).
"We've shown this technique works in theory and in the lab, so our next step is to show it works on the sky," says Ji Wang, one of the lead authors on the two new papers and a postdoctoral scholar in the Mawet lab. The team will test the instrumentation on the W. M. Keck Observatory in Hawaii this year or next.
The new technique involves three main components: a coronagraph, a set of optical fibers, and a high-resolution spectrometer. Coronagraphs are devices used in telescopes to block or remove starlight so that planets can be imaged. Stars outshine their planets by a few thousand to a few billion times, making the planets difficult to see. Many different types of coronagraphs are in development; for example, Mawet's group recently installed and took initial images with its new vortex coronagraph on the Keck Observatory.
Once an image of a planet has been obtained, the next step is to study the planet's atmosphere using a spectrometer, an instrument that breaks apart the planet's light to reveal "fingerprints" of chemicals, such as oxygen and methane. Most coronagraphs work in conjunction with low-resolution spectrometers. Mawet's new technique incorporates a high-resolution spectrometer, which has several advantages.
One main advantage is in helping to further sift out the unwanted starlight. With high-resolution spectrometers, the spectral features of a planet are more detailed, making it easier to distinguish and separate the planet's light from the lurking starlight.
What this means is that, in Mawet's method, the coronagraph does not have to be as good at sifting out starlight as was thought necessary to characterize Earth-like worlds.
"This new technique doesn't require the coronagraph to work as hard, and that's important because we can use current technologies that are already available," says Mawet, who is also a research scientist at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), which is managed by Caltech for NASA. "With a high-resolution spectrometer, we can improve the sensitivity of our system by a factor of 100 to 1,000 over current ground-based methods."
Another advantage of using high-resolution spectrometers lies in the richness of the data. In addition to providing more detail about the molecular constituents of a planet's atmosphere, these instruments should be able to reveal a planet's rotation rate and provide rough maps of surface features and weather patterns. "It's a long shot, but we might even have the ability to look for continents on candidate Earth-like planets," says Mawet.
In the team's design, the coronagraph is connected to the high-resolution spectrometer using a set of optical fibers. Surprisingly, laboratory experiments revealed that the fibers also filter out starlight.
"This was completely serendipitous," says Garreth Ruane, co-author on the two new papers and a National Science Foundation postdoctoral fellow in Mawet's group. "It's icing on the cake."
Next, the researchers will demonstrate their technique at the Keck Observatory. Although the instrumentation cannot yet study potential Earth-like planets—that will require the larger Thirty Meter Telescope—the system should be able to reveal new details about the atmospheres of larger gas exoplanets, including exotic varieties that are nothing like those in our own solar system.
"This new innovation of combining the coronagraph with a high-res spectrometer gives us a clear pathway to ultimately search for life beyond Earth."
Chilean government releases video of disturbing UFO sighting
Chilean government releases video of disturbing UFO sighting
By JAKE ELLISON, SPECIAL TO SEATTLEPI.COM
This is a screen grab from a YouTube videopublished by “ufosontherecord” taken on Nov. 11, 2014, by a Chilean Navy helicopter (Airbus Cougar AS-532) equipped with an infrared FLIR high-definition camera,
A video from a helicopter flown by the Chilean navy showing an unidentified flying object releasing something into the atmosphere has been confirmed by an agency in the Chilean government to be official and unexplained so far.
"The incident remains open as we cannot be absolutely certain of its nature, contrary to other incidents whose nature has been proved," said Jose Patricio Lay Lagos, acting director of CEFAA, which is an agency within Chile's DGAC (an agency similar to the FAA but part of the Chilean Air Force).
On November 11, 2014, a helicopter from the Chilean Navy (Airbus Cougar AS-532), equipped with an infrared FLIR high-definition camera, was patrolling in the coastal sector between the port of San Antonio and Quinteros a At 16.48 UTC, when the camera operator detected an unknown object, apparently flying at a constant speed similar to that of the helicopter, and moving forward.
The sighting was visually confirmed by the two officers who made up the crew (pilot and camera operator) and lasted more than 10 minutes.
Officers questioned Air Traffic Control whose radar failed to detect the object.
They also received no response from the unknown traffic when trying to interrogate it in the frequency prepared for these cases.
The DGAC's radar control system failed to capture the object but confirmed, in turn, the absence of authorized traffic in the vicinity of the helicopter.
His agency, Lay said, is not seeing UFOs everywhere or jumping to wild conclusions when it runs into one.
"For your information," he wrote in an email exchange, "the Committee's scientific group, all doctorates in diverse disciplines, from Astronomy to Physics, they are all Skeptics. That is of great help for us to keep our feet firmly on the ground and not get carried away by ufologists at large."
Here are three videos clips of the main points of interest in the longer video above.
"The incident did not cause any particular reaction," Lay said. "In Chile the phenomenon is regarded in a natural way, without fuzz or secrecy." He said the pilots didn't make any statements about the sighting. "They just handed over the video and described the situation as rather unusual," he said.
The journalist who broke the story on Huffington Post, Leslie Kean, wrote that several explanations of the UFO as an aircraft discharging water or other liquid waste have been shot down by the Chilean agency.
The agency wrote:
On two occasions, the object seems to throw a trail of some element that could not be specified.
Some analysts have suggested the hypothesis that it is a medium-sized line aircraft and that the stelae of the detachable element may be the reserve water inside the apparatus, thrown by the crew. However, meteorology asserts that neither the altitude at which the object moved, nor the ambient temperature of that moment, allowed such a wake of condensation.
Data from the various reports eliminate other conventional explanations. Meteorologists determined that no weather balloons were in the sky at that time, and noted that a balloon would not move horizontally along with the plane because the wind was blowing from the west towards the shore. Comparing the footage to similar IR satellite imagery with known temperature values, they stated that the object's temperature must have been higher than 122 degrees F (50 C). The object was not a drone; all drones require registration with the DGAC and whenever flown, the DGAC is informed, just like it is with aircraft. Also, radar would register drones. CEFAA staff went up the chain of command to a Navy Admiral who informed them that there were no joint Naval exercises underway with the US or any other country. The Admiral confirmed that this could not have been a US drone, or any type of espionage or secret vehicle from a foreign country.
Whatever the craft was, it's fairly disturbing to wonder just what it was releasing into the atmosphere. Of course, there's no end of conspiracies about contrails ...

People know California has out-of-this world mountains, deserts, beaches and food. But the Golden State is otherworldly in another category as well: UFO sightings.
The state has had more than 12,000 reported sightings of unidentified flying objects, or UFOs, according to the National UFO Reporting Center and the UFO Sightings Desk Reference, a first-of-its-kind book that analyzes such sightings and was released two weeks ago.
According to the center, the latest sightings in California occurred in Van Nuys and Miramar, in San Diego County. The first sighting occurred on March 17, when someone noticed several “items flying in formation, moving very fast in the night sky” silently before disappearing behind some clouds.
“I am very familiar with the night sky and various normal items that one would see, this was not normal and too silent and too fast to be of terrestrial origin,” the person wrote.
On March 21, someone in Miramar reported to the center that they saw “rapid blinking light that appeared to grow in size, first just one light was visible then the formation became visible,” the witness wrote. “It traveled quite low at a fast speed at one point making a u-turn in the opposite direction.”
The curiosity and fascination over aliens and UFOs has created a cultural phenomenon that has translated to books, television shows and movies such as “Communion,” “E.T. the Extraterrestrial” and most recently, “Arrival.”
On YouTube, people have uploaded unexplained sightings. Two years ago, in November, video blogger Julien Solomita noticed a bright cone of light streaking across the sky in Van Nuys and began to record the object with his camera.
Solomita posted his expletive-filled video to YouTube, titling it "Massive Blue UFO Over Los Angeles." More than 2.5 million people viewed the footage and circulated it widely on social media.
Ultimately, it turned out that the spectacle was caused by a U.S. Navy submarine off the coast that had launched an unarmed missile. The launch was one in a series of unannounced tests the Navy had planned, according to officials.
Rectangle-shaped UFO described over California town
Rectangle-shaped UFO described over California town
A California witness at Eureka stepped outside after hearing a loud, jet-like sound, and watched a rectangular-shaped object with odd lighting configuration crossing the sky, according to testimony in Case 81992 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.
The witness moved outside at 10:35 p.m. on February 9, 2017, after hearing jet sounds moving overhead.
“I heard a very loud jet, similar to a common commercial jet sound, except it was much louder,” the witness stated.“I went out the back door onto the deck to take a look. At first I couldn’t figure out where the sound was coming from. I turned around and scanned the sky behind me toward the east. I then saw what at first I took for a really huge jet, like maybe a military cargo jet, until I realized it couldn’t be, as it looked at first like it had two sets of wings stacked one on top of the other like a bi-plane.”
The witness then noticed the object had a pulsing red light in the center and two big, orange lights that seemed too far behind it for it to be a plane.
“At that point, I said, ‘What the hell is that?’ My wife heard me and came out. I pointed at the object. She tells me to hurry and grab my binoculars, so I ran inside and grabbed them, which took about 10 seconds. I came out and the object was further away than I thought it should be, as if it was speeding up.”
The object appeared to be rectangle-shaped.

The witness the looked through his binoculars at the object.
“I saw a very large, square, or possibly a home plate-shaped object. I perceived it to be fairly flat. There were several orange lights on it configured in a sort of arrow shape, and it had a red pulsing light in the center. The orange lights on it were illuminating the surface of the object, which was a light color. My thought was that the light configuration looked like a swept wing bomber jet from the 40s, and that it might be trying to look like a plane, except with the binoculars, I could clearly see there was surface area to it, where there shouldn’t be if it was a plane. It was clearly rectangular.”
The object did not look like anything the witness could identify.
“The lights that would’ve been the tail of the plane were too far back, and too wide for a plane as well. Those lights were actually on the rear corners of the object. It travelled west to east in a straight line. As it got further away, it seemed to accelerate due to how fast it disappeared into the distance, as compared to the standard passenger jet flying by every so often.”
The object seemed to be flat. Pictured: Eureka, California.
The witness has seen similar objects in the past.
“This is the second time I’ve seen this type of object in the last year and-a-half or so. This time it was a lot higher, different light configuration, and traveling much faster, but the flight path was the same. It is rare to see large jets flying west to east in this area. I checked the website flightaware.com and there were no flights in the area except for a local commuter coming into our little airport. That plane was still quite a ways away still.”
Eureka is the principal city and county seat of Humboldt County in the Redwood Empire region of California, population 27,191. MUFON California Assistant State Director Devlin Rugne closed this case as an Unknown. Please remember that most UFO sightings can be explained as something natural or man-made.

Life Outside Our Solar System Might Exist on Exomoons
Life Outside Our Solar System Might Exist on Exomoons
By Elizabeth Howell, Space.com Contributor
As some scientists search for habitable planets outside our solar system, other researchers are tackling a similar question for the moons of these planets. So-called exomoons have yet to be found outside our solar system, and a detection could be a decade away — or more.
But scientists, writing in a new research paper, theorize a Mars-sized exomoon of a gas giant planet and ask whether or not liquid water could be found on its surface.
In our own solar system, the closest analog is Jupiter's Ganymede, the biggest moon in the solar system and about five-sixth the size of Mars.
Do you believe alien life exists elsewhere in the universe?
Yes - We may not have found them yet, but they're out there.
NASA confirmed in 2015 the presence of a liquid ocean on Ganymede after performing Hubble Space Telescope observations of the moon's auroras, which appear to rock back and forth less than expected with Jupiter's magnetic field. The space agency said the attenuation is likely due to a salty ocean under Ganymede's surface.
As for this theoretical Mars-sized exomoon, the picture is murky. The scientists considered energy sources such as stellar radiation (which changes as a function of distance to the star), the stellar reflected light from a Jupiter-sized planet on the moon, the planet's own thermal emission on the moon, and the tidal heating inside the moon that is generated due to the changing gravitational pull of the planet. (This tidal heating would be most pronounced if the moon had an eccentric orbit, like the volcanic moon Io has around Jupiter.)
It's know that tidal heating rates decrease if a moon is molten inside, because lava creates an inherent negative feedback mechanism where the heating sort of switches off, and the moon cools down inside. This is called the "tidal thermostat effect," co-author of the paper Rene Heller said in an email. Heller is an astrophysicist at the Max Planck Institute for Solar System Research in Germany.
"We investigate, for the first time, the interplay of all the possible exomoon heat sources as a function of various distances from the host star," he added. "Actually, we even consider two possible types of host stars: a sun-like star, and a red dwarf star (an M dwarf)."
For a sun-like star, the authors found that any moon around a gas giant beyond three astronomical units, or three Earth-sun distances, would have a high enough energy flux to stop the tidal thermostat effect from happening. But if the moon is volatile enough, it could have global volcanism — just like what we see on Io.
Heller described this situation as "dangerous" for organisms.
"They might have lots of liquid surface water, but their surfaces could at the same time be blotched with devastating volcanoes," he wrote. "Nevertheless, we illustrate that they could be habitable given the right amount of tidal heating, and we show at which distances to their planets these moons would need to be."
M-dwarfs are a common target for exoplanet searches because they are smaller and dimmer, making it easier to see planets passing across their surfaces, or the effect of planets tugging on the star itself. But for exomoons, it's even less clear how habitable they would be in such a system. "Moons cannot be stable in the very inner regions of the stellar habitable zone," Heller said.
The best examples for tidally heated bodies in our own solar system are all moons: Jupiter's Io and Europa, as well as Saturn's Enceladus. While Europa and Enceladus are strongly suspected to have oceans underneath an icy surface, Heller pointed out his research is more focused on habitability on the surface of the moon. A better analog, he said, might be Saturn's moon Titan — but with a much warmer surface. Titan has a thick orange atmosphere, as well as liquid hydrocarbon lakes.
"Due to observational selection effects, which will prefer big moons around low-mass planets, I think the first exomoon will be unlike anything we know from the solar system," Heller said.
"It could be a Mars-like thing around an Earth-like planet, or an Earth around a Neptune, at a distance to their star that could be similar to Mercury's distance from the Sun (sufficiently close so that we have enough transits to find it). It'll probably be something that will be incredible at first glance, like a planet around a pulsar or a hot Jupiter. I'm really curious to know what this object will be like."
While there are several new planet-hunting telescopes joining astronomy in the next decade, Heller said they are not optimized for exomoons. Searching for exomoons is financially risky and the payoff highly uncertain, which means it is likely to remain a low priority for the astronomical community.
The James Webb Space Telescope, a multi-purpose telescope which launches in 2018, is expected to look at only a few exoplanets — so its chances of finding an exomoon are low, Heller said. The Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite, which also launches next year, will only observe very short-period transiting planets. "These planets will be so close to their stars that any moon around the planet would be immediately flung out of the system by the stellar gravitational perturbations," Heller said.
Better other chances could come with the European Extremely Large Telescope, which is currently under construction, or CHEOPS (CHaracterising ExOPlanets Satellite), another European space telescope.
"I know that some people in the CHEOPS Science Team are actively compiling strategies to go and search for moons around transiting planets in wider orbits," Heller said. But he added the "ultimate weapon" would likely be PLATO (PLAnetary Transits and Oscillations of stars), which will launch around 2024. It will conduct dedicated planet searches like the Kepler space telescope, but around more bright stars.
WATCH: We Found New Planets. No, You Can't Live There
Scott Pruitt, the new chief of the US Environmental Protection Agency, certainly seems comfortable dismissing scientific consensus: “I believe that measuring, with precision, human activity on the climate is something very challenging to do, and there’s tremendous disagreement about the degree of impact. So, no, I would not agree that it’s a primary contributor to the global warming that we see.”
From a certain perspective, this is knockabout political theatre. And a little scepticism is prudent, for sure. Blithely accepting whatever we’re told is clearly unwise. Information can be unreliable; cover-ups do occur. But if we dismiss everything we hear in the media, if we assume that scientists and scholars are untrustworthy, we leave ourselves vulnerable to manipulation, misinformation, and rumour. This makes us wonder: are we entering a golden age of the conspiracy theory?
Not that this type of cognitive error is new, of course. The idea that individuals or groups have conspired to commit some crime and then cover it up reaches back centuries — witness, for example, the belief that Jews were poisoning wells and killing Christians or that Roman Catholics were secretly plotting to undermine the Protestant English state. However, if we’re now living in a “post-truth” society, with traditionally trusted sources of information routinely undermined and informal communication possible like never before via the Internet, one of the dubious fruits of this febrile climate may be a growth in the power and reach of conspiracy theories.
As we discovered when we went looking for answers to these questions, specific scientific studies of conspiracy beliefs are few and far between. And so we began by seeing what we could discover from general epidemiological surveys, mining their findings in search of associations between particular social and psychological factors and a belief in conspiracy theories. With Richard Bentall of the University of Liverpool we turned to the rich dataset of one of the largest surveys of psychological health ever carried out: the US National Comorbidity Survey-Replication. The NCS-R is a few years old now: it was carried out in 2001-03, predating the current skeptical turn. But it was large, nationally representative, and scientifically robust. The results of our research are published today.
The NCS-R covers a lot of ground, but one of the statements participants were asked to consider was this: “I’m convinced there’s a conspiracy behind many things in the world.” More than a quarter of those who responded to the item felt that it was true – a statistic that provides food for thought in itself. And that was fifteen years ago.
It wasn’t just demographic characteristics that the conspiracy theorists shared. They tended to report lower levels of physical and psychological wellbeing; and to see themselves as socially inferior, both in comparison to their local community and to the nation as a whole. They were more likely to have seriously considered suicide. Their social networks were weaker (they often felt, for example, that they couldn’t rely on friends and family in times of trouble) and they found it harder to maintain secure relationships.
Childhood relationships with parents had frequently been challenging. Often these individuals hadn’t lived with both biological parents; they’d spent extended periods away from home; or had experienced violence at the hands of their parents.
What we see then is a clear association between a belief in conspiracy theories and a wide range of negative life circumstances and personal distress. So far an association is all it is. Do these types of problems make the people affected especially susceptible to conspiracy theories or is it the other way around? That research hasn’t been done. But our view is that the low self-esteem, smaller social networks, and marginalisation we see in so many of the US sample may play a key role at an early age, providing fertile ground for a distrust of authority: feeling that society has rejected them, they learn to reject the beliefs that society endorses.
Experiences like this in childhood may have a lasting effect on the way we make sense of the world. When an event occurs that doesn’t fit our expectations or that seems threatening, we feel anxious and disturbed. We want certainty and reassurance. Rather than thinking it through, we’re liable to jump to conclusions, to look for the answers that conform to our preconceptions rather than calmly weighing up the evidence.
The upshot of that process may be a conspiracy theory. In the short term, it’s a belief that brings benefits — in place of anxiety and uncertainty, we are soothed by what feels like knowledge. Our bruised self-esteem is boosted by the sense that we are one of the small minority who really know what’s going on. And thanks to the Internet we’re able to connect with these like-minded souls: suddenly we can feel part of a community.
Psychological models of conspiracy theories need testing, for sure. Indeed, we don’t know enough about conspiracy theories full stop. But given the current socio-political climate has this kind of research ever been more necessary?

AMAZING! MYSTERIOUS STATUE DEPICTING AN ALIEN UNEARTHED IN MEXICO!
AMAZING! MYSTERIOUS STATUE DEPICTING AN ALIEN UNEARTHED IN MEXICO!
One of most fascinating ancient civilizations can be found in the American continent and holds some of the most mysterious legends and myths.
The Mayan civilization had built vast cities and also erected monolithic structures during ancient times. They have left many artifacts, and relics behind that is desired among archaeologists and history enthusiasts.
But some of these treasures left behind by such a notorious civilization has a great deal of mystery behind them.
Recently an ancient statue with the appearance of an Alien humanoid holding a human head was discovered in Mexico by public workers in the Maxtaloyan community. There's a snake surrounding the figure with the top head looking like the face of a Grey alien or some reptilian entity.
Perhaps the statue represents a God figure that they worshiped at the time, probably of extraterrestrial origin, and the human head could be a symbol of them being above us as our creators.
The claim is made by lobby group The Disclosure Activists, a new international consortium trying to force the alleged truth about aliens out into the open.
Conspiracy theorists have claimed for years aliens have been visiting Earth and world leaders are aware, but it has been kept from the public under an alleged "truth embargo" amid fears of the impact it would have on religion and the rule of law.
But now The Disclosure Activists claim and number of recent UFO file declassifications, means the lid is about to come off once and for all.
In a statement, the organisation said "the historical stance of widespread denial and misinformation has shifted".
Group, co-founder Russell Calka: "Recently there is a systematic effort from within the US and other world governments to release this information to the public."
Victor Viggiani, the senior strategic adviser to organisation, added: "All of the evidence that has been accumulated by researchers, military witness testimony, and acquired from declassified government documents over the last 70 years points to three very basic conclusions — the planet Earth has been and is being engaged by off-world civilisations.
The Disclosure Activists claim we are aboutto receive big news about aliens.
"Secondly — this information has been hidden from the public in a well orchestrated and systematic embargo on the truth.
"Thirdly, governments know these conclusions are true — researchers of this topic know these conclusions are true, and it is now time for humanity to learn these truths.”
The statement added: "The Disclosure Activists contend that Disclosure is already underway.
"Earlier this month, the Spanish Ministry of Defence released a cache of previously classified UFO documents, similar to documents released by the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) in January 2017, and similar to other document releases from governments in the UK, Chile, and Mexico.
"NASA reported the discovery of additional habitable exoplanets (bringing the total to well over 3000) and just this month, former President George W Bush alluded to his knowledge of the UFO phenomenon in an interview on late night television with Jimmy Kimmel.
Recently there is a systematic effort from within the US and other world governments to release this information to the public.
"There have also been email leaks, via Wikileaks, that indicate this topic is of substantial interest to government and military, as they prepare citizens for disclosure of extraterrestrial visitation."
Group co-founder Dr Lisa Galarneau said: "Through these government disclosures, scientific discoveries of exoplanets, leaks, and hints from insiders, the public is being prepared for official announcements regarding extraterrestrial visitation.
"This awareness building campaign is deliberate in its attempt to prepare humanity for formal Disclosure.
"This is an important step towards open contact with extraterrestrial intelligences who have not shown hostile intentions and could help humanity with some of our most intractable problems, including energy, climate change, pollution, and resource scarcity."
The statement ended saying: "Disclosure is imminent.
"We are not alone in the cosmos and we never have been. Citizens have a need to know."
Sceptics claim there is no truth embargo, because no aliens have ever visited Earth.
They argue that if such a secret had been kept secret for so many years, particularly since the age of whistleblowing websites like Wikileaks began, that tangible evidence of aliens existing would have been leaked.
A new conspiracy theory says, before religious texts like the Bible were written, alien lifeforms visited Earth and were seen as "gods" by the more primitive humans.
In an article entitled "Aliens Are Coming Back To Retrieve 'Their' Religion," the website ufointernationalproject.com tried to explain the theory.
It claims either aliens created the religious texts for the benefit of mankind, or they were written by humans based on the "alien gods" who visited at that time.
It went onto say much more advanced extraterrestrial species were angry that humans had used religions as a reason for waging countless wars across the globe over hundreds of years.
The article said: "Religion was not designed for terrorism
"The aliens quite knew that man is so destructive in nature, that’s the more reason why Religion was bestowed to us, to serve with faith and fear of the unknown, but man has completely failed the experiment."
It went on to list a series of wars carried out in the name of religion, including the bitter conflicts in the Middle East against Islamic State.
The unnamed author of the piece said: "I have studied all religions for over 20 years, and it has led me to nothing more than one vast conclusion.
"Man was not smart enough to write any of the religions, and I mean the eastern spiritualism (the self), western religions (God – which I always have referred to as the extraterrestrial) or American Creationism (Nature itself, including man).
A new theory claims that aliens began religion on Earth.
It went on to say that aliens would want their religions returned, and will quarantine us here on Earth to prevent any cosmic disasters.
It added: "Now be ready to give it back, since humans have no respect for life, ideas, other races and cultures.
"That brings me to my final point - with us humans pointing a cannon at anything different from ourselves, the aliens will not allow us to transverse the Universe.
"We have an idea of how the atom works, and if we ever develop spaceships using antigravity, they do not want us to explore space pointing a cannon at everything alien to us, especially since we failed to master our emotions."
Alien conspiracy theorists have been saying for years that extraterrestrials have already visited Earth, and world leaders know this, but it is kept from us under an alleged "truth embargo" amid fears over the impact the truth would have on religion and the rule of law.
Several people are campaigning for the "embargo" to be lifted and the "disclosure" of all facts about aliens on Earth.
The article finished saying that the only thing that would stop wars on Earth was so-called disclosure.
It added: "Truly the only thing that can put a stop to the wars on earth both religious and others which have killed thousands of innocent people including children and animals, is only one thing – DISCLOSURE!"
Nigel Watson, author of The UFO Investigations Manual, told Express.co.uk: "These ideas are very much like those of the alleged alien contactees of the 1950s, who said they had meetings with space people and had rides in their flying saucers.
"Ironically, it is a bit like the view of some religious groups that say we should not venture into space because that is the domain of God.
"I don't think we will be producing spacecraft capable of visiting nearby alien civilisations for a very long time, and it is still a matter of debate whether they will
welcome us or attack us.
"Certainly, Professor Stephen Hawking says we should be wary of making any type of contact with aliens.
"As for disclosure as a means of uniting humanity, I don't think that will ever happen."
The mysterious Piri Reis Map: Is this evidence of a very advanced prehistoric civilization?
The mysterious Piri Reis Map: Is this evidence of a very advanced prehistoric civilization?
The Piri Reis map is a world map compiled in 1513 from military intelligence by the Ottoman admiral and cartographer Piri Reis.
Approximately one third of the map survives; it shows the western coasts of Europe and North Africa and the coast of Brazil with reasonable accuracy. Various Atlantic islands, including the Azores and Canary Islands, are depicted, as is the mythical island of Antillia and possibly Japan.
The historical importance of the map lies in its demonstration of the extent of exploration of the New World by approximately 1510, and in its claim to have used Columbus’s maps, otherwise lost, as a source.
It used ten Arab sources, four Indian maps sourced from the Portuguese, and one map of Columbus. More recently, it has been the focus of pseudo historic claims for the pre-modern exploration of the Antarctic coast.
The map was discovered accidentally on 9 October 1929, through the philological work of the German theologian Gustav Adolf Deissmann (1866–1937). He had been commissioned by the Turkish Ministry of Education to catalog the Topkapi Palace library’s non-Islamic items.
At Deissmann’s request to search the palace for old maps and charts, the director Halil Edhem (1861–1938) managed to find some disregarded bundles of material, which he handed over to Deissmann. Realizing that the map might be a unique find, Deissmann showed it to the orientalist Paul Kahle, who identified it as a map drawn by Piri Reis.
The discovery caused an international sensation, as it represented the only then known copy of a world map of Christopher Columbus (1451–1506), and was the only 16th-century map that showed South America in its proper longitudinal position in relation to Africa. Geographers had spent several centuries unsuccessfully searching for a “lost map of Columbus” that was supposedly drawn while he was in the West Indies.
After reading about the map’s discovery in The Illustrated London News, United States Secretary of State Henry L. Stimson contacted the United States Ambassador to Turkey Charles H. Sherrill and requested that an investigation be launched to find the Columbus source map, which he believed may have been in Turkey.
In turn, the Turkish government complied with Stimson’s request, but they were unsuccessful in locating any of the source maps.
The Piri Reis map is currently located in the Library of the Topkapı Palace in Istanbul, Turkey, but is not usually on display to the public.
The map was depicted on the reverse of the Turkish 10 million lira banknote of 1999-2005 and of the new 10 lira banknote of 2005-2009.
The map is a portolan chart, as shown by the four compass roses (two large and two small) from which lines of bearing radiate. Some analyses assert that the map is an a zimuthal equidistant projection centered on Cairo, but a 1998 analysis by Steven Dutch of the University of Wisconsin Green Bay shows a better fit with a point near the intersection of the present-day prime meridian and the equator.
There are extensive notes in Turkish around the edges of the map, as well as some interior detail which is mostly inaccurate and fanciful.
The Iberian peninsula and the coast of Africa are rendered accurately; as for the Americas, the northern portion of the South American coast is also fairly accurate and positioned correctly with respect to Africa. Much of the Caribbean is also mapped fairly accurately and appears to reflect Columbus’s maps of the area.
The area representing North America bears almost no resemblance to its real coastline (which is unsurprising, since by this time, it was still almost totally unexplored) except for one projection which might be Newfoundland; an island labelled “Antilia” may actually be Nova Scotia, since it has a note attached which refers to the legendary voyages of Saint Brendan.
There is some suggestion that this area may represent the Asian coast. Island groups in the east Atlantic are accurately placed, but are depicted out of scale.
Although there are frequent claims for the extreme accuracy of this chart, McIntosh, in comparing the Piri Reis map to several other portolan-style maps of the era, found that
The Piri Reis map is not the most accurate map of the sixteenth century, as has been claimed, there being many, many world maps produced in the remaining eighty-seven years of that century that far surpass it in accuracy. The Ribeiro maps of the 1520s and 1530s, the Ortelius map of 1570, and the Wright-Molyneux map of 1599 (‘the best map of the sixteenth century’) are only a few better-known examples.
There are two major discrepancies from known coastlines: the North American coast mentioned above, and the southern portion of the South American coast. On the Piri Reis map, the latter is shown bending off sharply to the east starting around present-day Rio de Janeiro.
A more popular interpretation of this territory has been to identify this section with the Queen Maud Land coast of Antarctica. This claim is generally traced to Arlington H. Mallery, a civil engineer and amateur archaeologist who was a supporter of pre-Columbian trans-oceanic contact hypotheses. Though his assertions were not well received by scholars, they were revived in Charles Hapgood’s 1966 book Maps of the Ancient Sea Kings.
This book proposed a theory of global exploration by a pre-classical undiscovered civilization based on his analysis of this and other ancient and late-medieval maps. More notoriously, these claims were repeated in Erich von Däniken’s Chariots of the Gods (which attributed the knowledge of the coast to extraterrestrials) and Gavin Menzies’s 1421: The Year China Discovered the World (which attributed it to supposed Chinese voyages), both of which were roundly denounced by both scholars and debunkers of fringe works, but which attracted huge popular followings.
A more sober analysis of these claims was published by Gregory McIntosh, a historian of cartography, who examined the map in depth in his book The Piri Reis Map of 1513 (Athens and London: University of Georgia Press, 2000). He was able to find sources for much of the map in Columbus’s writings.
Certain peculiarities (such as the appearance of the Virgin Islands in two locations) he attributed to the use of multiple maps as sources; others (such as the errors in North American geography) he traced to the continued confusion of the area with East Asia. As far as the accuracy of depiction of the supposed Antarctic coast is concerned, there are two conspicuous errors.
First, it is shown hundreds of miles north of its proper location; second, the Drake Passage is completely missing, with the Antarctic Peninsula presumably conflated with the Argentine coast. The identification of this area of the map with the frigid Antarctic coast is also difficult to reconcile with the notes on the map which describe the region as having a warm climate.
It should be kept in mind that maps of the period generally depicted a large continent named Terra Australis Incognita of highly variable shape and extent. This land was posited by Ptolemy as a counterbalance to the extensive continental areas in the northern hemisphere; due to a lack of exploration and various misunderstandings, its existence was not fully abandoned until circumnavigation of the area during the second voyage of James Cook in the 1770s showed that if it existed, it was much smaller than imagined previously.
The first confirmed landing on Antarctica was not until 1820, and the coastline of Queen Maud Land did not see significant exploration before Norwegian expeditions began in 1891. In 1513, Cape Horn had not yet been discovered, and indeed Ferdinand Magellan’s voyage of circumnavigation was not to set sail for another six years.
It is unclear whether the mapmaker saw South America itself as part of the unknown southern lands (as shown in the Atlas Miller), or whether (as Dutch thought) he drew what was then known of the coast with substantial distortion, but in any case, serious scholarship holds that there is no reason to believe that the map is the product of genuine knowledge of the Antarctic coast.
UFO Crash at Aztec – The Roswell Connection | 69th Anniversary
UFO Crash at Aztec – The Roswell Connection | 69th Anniversary
As a kid growing up in Aztec, NM in the late 1940’s to the late 1950’s, I had heard many rumors and talk about the UFO crash north of Aztec. The other kids at school would occasionally discuss the event and when and where it occurred. I also remember going outside at recess and looking at some of the mass UFO formations in the area about 1950.
For the old time Aztec folks, I attended Mrs. Martin’s 2nd grade class in the old 4 room, red brick, 2 story schoolhouse. There were big enclosed fire escape slides from the second floor. It was located on the site where the “new” high school was constructed in the mid-1950’s.
I had heard my Dad and other roughnecks in the oil “patch” discuss the crash and the “little guys inside!” I don’t think my dad seriously believed the event occurred, as he was not witness to the happenings. But the subject of the crash was the topic of many conversations at The Gas Cap Café, The Aztec Café; Bill’s Place Bar, and The Highway Lounge. I went to all of these places with my dad. While we were looked down upon as “oilfield trash,” the so-called “good” people of Aztec had no problem cashing my Dad’s oilfield paychecks.
I went into the US Air Force in March of 1960. Was stationed at Bolling AFB, Washington, D.C. and later at Kunsan AB, Korea. After the isolated tour of duty in Korea, I was allowed my choice of duty assignments. I opted for a consecutive overseas assignment, and I asked for Japan, England, France, or anyplace in Europe. In 1964, I was assigned to the U. S. munitions base at RAF Welford, Newbury, Berkshire, England.
Duty in England was good. I bought a little English car, a Morris Minor. My sister in Farmington, NM mailed me a NM State University window sticker, which I put in the window of the little car.
I was at work at the base motor pool one day when a fellow from the vehicle maintenance shop walked across the street and asked if I was from New Mexico, as he had seen the sticker on my car. We introduced ourselves. His family name was XXXX, with the nickname of “Sam.” We compared past duty stations, and realized that we had both been stationed in Korea about the same time! I was at Kunsan AB, and Sam had been at Osan, AB in 1963/1964, before we were both reassigned to RAF Welford in England.
I told Sam XXXX that I was from the 4-Corners area of New Mexico and he asked me if I ever lived in Aztec? I told Sam XXXX that I had indeed lived in Aztec and that I knew the area and town fairly well. Sam said that he had been in Aztec briefly in 1948. I assumed that he had been in the oilfield. Sam suggested that we meet at the Airman’s Club after dinner and talk. I agreed.
Our conversation was pretty much about Aztec. I asked Sam XXXX why he was so interested in Aztec, NM?
Sam asked me what all I knew about the UFO crash at Aztec in 1948? I told him that I had heard about it for most of my life, but that I had no direct knowledge about it. Sam XXXX then asked me if I thought we were alone in the universe? I replied that I thought there had to be intelligent life out there somewhere. Sam told me that he knew for a fact there was life from elsewhere, as he had seen some actual “little bodies” and that he had been involved with the UFO crash retrieval at Aztec, NM in March of 1948! He had been stationed at Roswell, NM and was flown with a group of USAF personnel to Durango, CO by C-47 (DC-3) aircraft, then driven on down to the crash site.
Sam told me that he had seen the bodies at the Aztec crash site, as they were loaded onto a truck. He did not tell me if the bodies were in body bags, caskets, or preserved in any way, but he thought they were placed in the cargo truck for protection from the elements and out of sight. He thought the bodies were eventually moved to Ohio by road transportation and that the craft was moved by road transportation to the new secure airport at Las Alamos, NM. Sam also related that a light, spring, snowstorm had occurred while the detachment was at the crash site before the craft was dismantled and removed. Sam was amazed that snow and ice accumulated on the military vehicles, but there was no accumulation on the craft’s surface.
I asked Sam XXXX about food and quarters for the troops while at Aztec. Sam said they were on the crash site 24/7 and never left. They were provided food rations and sleeping bags. Sleep in shifts was in, under, or in the cargo bed of some of the military vehicles. No tents or cots or hot chow was available. Latrine facilities were in the brush. Sam XXXX’ main duty was to provide perimeter security of the crash site, to keep unauthorized persons away. Sam XXXX was at the very bottom in the chain of command, and was a very young trooper at the time.
We carried on this conversation for the next three years in which Sam’s story was never changed, enhanced, or embellished. Sam XXXX warned me not to talk about the event at Aztec, as talking about the UFO crash had caused his US Air Force career to suffer badly. He was the only A/2C (E-3) with nearly 20 years of service that I had ever met. I was 22 years old, and Sam was in his late 30’s. Sam XXXX always looked over his shoulder, and always ended our conversations that perhaps “he had talked too much already.”
Sam XXXX and I both were advanced to A/1C (E-4) about the same time at RAF Welford. Sam and I both got married about the same time in 1965. We both moved into the married quarters on the base at RAF Welford, into trailer houses next to each other for nearly three years. Sam is a good friend, and I certainly hope that he can be located. I hope that he survived Vietnam!
I went back to the US for separation from the US Air Force and entry into the US Navy Seabees, in July of 1968. Repeated tours of Vietnam followed. Sam XXXX went directly to an air base in Vietnam, I think, about the same time. Have not seen or heard about Sam XXXX since. As I am now 63 years of age, Sam XXXX will be about 83 years of age or more.
I heard Stanton Friedman on a radio program one evening in 2003 talking about Scott Ramsey and his research into the 1948 UFO crash at Aztec, NM. Mr. Friedman asked for anyone with any knowledge of the event to e-mail him. I sent an e-mail and it was forwarded to Scott Ramsey.
Only 12 individuals from Earth have been fortunate enough to actually walk on the surface of another world ― specifically, our moon.
The historic manned lunar landing in July 1969 gave us Apollo 11’s first moonwalkers, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin, followed four months later by Apollo 12’s Pete Conrad and Alan Bean leaving their footsteps on Earth’s natural satellite.
Lunar module pilot Bean, now 85, became the fourth man to set foot on the moon, and he continued with the space program as a spacecraft commander on the 59-day Skylab Mission II, in 1973. He was later named backup commander for the 1975 joint American-Russian Apollo-Soyuz test flight.
When Bean retired from NASA in 1981, he became an excellent artist who paints the experiences of fellow astronaut-moonwalkers.
Bean’s spacefaring experiences have given him plenty of time to think about the question of whether earthlings are alone in the universe, and specifically, whether aliens have discovered us.
“I do not believe that anyone from outer space has ever visited the Earth,” Bean told the Australian news site news.com.au. “One of the reasons I don’t believe they have been here is that civilizations that are more advanced are more altruistic and friendly ― like Earth, which is better than it used to be ― so they would have landed and said, ‘We come in peace and we know from our studies you have cancer that kills people, we solved that problem 50 years ago, here’s the gadget we put on a person’s chest that will cure it, we will show you how to make it.’
“Just like someday, say, 1,000 years from now, when we can go to another star and see a planet, that’s what we would do, because we will know how to cure cancer, cure birth defects, so we would teach them.”
Bean doesn’t think that we’re alone in the vast expanse of planets.
“There’s so many billions of stars, and these stars have planets around them, so there must be statistically many planets around many stars that have formed life,” he said.
But this raises the question of how Bean could assume that, if aliens have landed here, they would automatically offer to help with our problems. We can’t simply expect an extraterrestrial species to think the way we do, or to understand our thoughts and motivations. And why would he presume that when we are eventually able to travel to other planets, we would go out of our way to help aliens we may find with their problems?
Bean has obviously never heard of the United Federation of Planets prime directive, which forbids Starfleet explorers from interfering with any ET cultures.
Seriously, let’s be fair. Bean was a very accomplished astronaut and is certainly entitled to his opinion. And so is another, well-known astronaut.
In 2009, Apollo 14 moonwalker Edgar Mitchell spoke at a National Press Club news conference about UFOs and the possibility that Earth has been visited by extraterrestrials.
”I don’t have firsthand experience with the ET effort, except the fact that I know there is no doubt we are being visited and I’m suggesting it is now time to put away this embargo of truth about the alien presence, and I call upon our government to open up,” Mitchell told the media.
A year earlier, Mitchell, who died in 2016, appeared on a British radio show, where he proclaimed he was “privileged enough to be in on the fact that we have been visited on this planet and the UFO phenomenon is real, although it’s been covered up by our governments for the last 60 years or so. There’s more nonsense out there about this than there is real knowledge. I have been deeply involved in certain committees and research programs with very credible scientists and intelligence people that do know the real inside story, and I am not hesitant to talk about it.”
Mitchell was an Apollo astronaut whose opinion on whether aliens have been to Earth was the complete opposite of Bean’s. He showed the importance of keeping an open mind about what’s real and what isn’t.
Just because an accomplished astronaut makes a claim about a controversial issue like UFOs or aliens doesn’t make it the truth.
UFO die bromtoon voortbrengt houdt gemoederen bezig in Groningen
UFO die bromtoon voortbrengt houdt gemoederen bezig in Groningen
In de afgelopen dagen is boven de provincie Groningen tot twee keer toe een UFO gesignaleerd die een brommend geluid voortbrengt.
Groningen komt de laatste tijd vaak in het nieuws vanwege de problemen door gaswinning, maar misschien gebeuren er ook wel wat vreemdere zaken.
Afgelopen zaterdag zagen inwoners uit het dorp Meedhuizen een vreemd object dat ze omschrijven als een bal met kleine vleugels:
We zaten in de tuin en onze hond keek ineens erg strak naar boven wat ze normaal bij vliegtuigen nooit doet. Dus wij keken ook naar boven en zagen daar een bol met 2 kleine vleugels erg langzaam voorbij vliegen. Het had geen motor of iets in die richting. Wel maakte het een zacht brommend geluid.
Op 14 maart zag een inwoner uit het dorp Winsum een UFO in de lucht die een lage bromtoon voortbracht:
Gisteravond toen ik wilde gaan slapen keek ik uit mijn raam zoals ik dat vaker ‘s avonds doe.
Hier viel mij gelijk iets geks op, namelijk een bijzonder helder licht en daarbij een bijzonder lage bromtoon. Het zag er apart uit, maar deed weinig met me en ik besloot te gaan slapen.
Rond 3 uur ‘s nachts schrok ik wakker, door mijn gordijnen zag ik een schim. Deze schim had menselijke trekken, maar wat langere armen. Ik ging dan ook direct uit van een inbreker of iets dergelijks.
Ik besloot op dat moment mijn gordijnen open te doen. Hierbij constateerde ik dat er niemand op het dak van de serre stond, een beetje gespannen ben ik verder gaan slapen.
Een klein uur later was ik weer wakker, nu in compleet andere omstandigheden. Ik had het gevoel dat ik vastgenageld aan mijn bed was. Over mij heen hingen drie gedaantes en het heldere licht en het lage geluid waren terug.
Tot hier gaat mijn herinnering en werd ik de volgende ochtend gewoon weer wakker. Direct ben ik op internet gaan zoeken wat het zou kunnen zijn; slaapverlamdheid, lucide dromen, enz.
Dit was helaas niet toepasbaar op mijn ervaringen.
Mijn vraag is: zijn er nog meer mensen met deze ervaring?
Staan deze ervaringen los van elkaar, of is er een verband?

Mysterious Shadows Seen From Space Station, Possible UFO Docking At ISS, March 2017, UFO Sighting News.
Date of sighting: March 2017 Location of sighting: International Space Station Now this shadow really looks like a very large craft is moving behind the space station, blocking out the sun. I have looked at the video over and over again and just can't find any explanation for it other than something large was on the other side of the ISS and casted its shadow onto Earths atmosphere upper layer. Very cool, and if its a UFO...very freaking big. Awesome catch by Streetcap1 of Youtube. Scott C. Waring Eyewitness states:
This is the full real-time actual footage captured on the 19th March, 2017. I still do not have a clue as to what this is. No alterations to actual footage were made in this or the previous video. Streetcap1.

Agency in the Chilean Government Confirmed the Authenticity Of A Disturbing UFO Video
Agency in the Chilean Government Confirmed the Authenticity Of A Disturbing UFO Video
An agency in the Chilean government confirmed the video from a Chilean Navy helicopter showing a UFO releasing something into the atmosphere.
Jose Patricio Lay Lagos, CEFAA acting director, said that the incident has been open since they cannot be certain of its nature, unlike the other events where nature has been proved. CEFAA is an agency within Chile’s DGAC, can be compared to the FAA, but part of the Chilean Air Force.
According to the official report Airbus Cougar AS-532, a helicopter from the Chilean Navy mounted with an infrared FLIR HD camera was patrolling between the port of San Antonio and Quinteros at 4:48 pm UTC on November 11, 2014. The camera operator noticed a UFO moving forward at a constant speed, the same to that of the helicopter.
The pilot and the camera operator visually confirmed the sighting, which reportedly lasted more than ten minutes.
The two officers questioned the Air Traffic Control, but their radar failed to detect the mysterious flying object. They also tried interrogating it in the frequency designed for these cases, but they received no response from the unknown traffic.
The radar control system of DGAC also failed to capture the object.
The CEFAA acting director confirmed the video that made the rounds online in the first week of January to be the real version.
Lay explained that their scientific group, composed of people with doctorates in diverse disciplines, from Physics to Astronomy, are all skeptics and would not jump to wild conclusions.
Lay said that the two officers did not make any statements about the incident. They just instead handed over the video and described the content of it as rather unusual.
An Irish witness at Galway recalled a UFO incident from 1986 now referred to as the Salthill UFO Sighting, according to testimony in Case 82139 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.
The events occurred on March 1, 1986.
“One early spring day I walked up a hill on my way to Salthill beach,” the witness stated.“It looked liked it could rain, even though there were patches of blue in the sky. As I examined the clouds, to judge if it would rain soon, a cigar-shaped object appeared in the sky between the roofs of a row of houses. As I continued walking the object moved in the sky relative to the position of the houses on the ground, due to the perspective.”
The witness attempted to estimate the object’s distance.
“It hovered above the roof tops about one or two miles away, not moving. It’s appearance and color made me think of a Zeppelin. Then I continued walking and the object disappeared behind the roof of a house and some trees, because I moved and the perspective changed. I expected to see it again where it should have reappeared, but it remained disappeared.”
The witness then walked back to where the object was last seen.
“A slow-moving blimp should still have been in about the same position in the sky. But the object was no longer there. All this happened within a few seconds. After I reached the top of the hill I walked down to the beach promenade, I could see that there was a lot of activity in Claude Toft Park, next to the beach. It looked like a festival was going on. At the seafront, I had a clear view of the whole sky, and I asked people about having seen a blimp or if balloons had been launched for the festivities, but no one had seen anything.”
Galway is a city in the West of Ireland in the province of Connacht, population 79,504. Please remember that most UFO sightings can be explained as something natural or man-made. The above quotes were edited for clarity. Please report UFO activity to MUFON.com.
Italian car companies have been renowned for decades for the beautiful sports cars they design. It looks like their designers have turned their eyes to the skies and are getting ready for the next generation in hot ways to travel … sports flying saucers. You’ve seen crafts that are called flying saucers before, but this one will truly make ETs jealous.
The “Identified Flying Object” (IFO) was recently presented to the public by inventor Pierpaolo Lazzarini, the CEO of Jet Capsule, a maker of futurist enclosed jet skis that Lazzarini proudly calls mini-yachts. They and the rest of his designs fully live up to his motto:
Think about the Future, never forget the past.
If his name sounds familiar, it’s because last year Lazzarini unveiled his “Unidentified Floating Object” – a flying-saucer-shaped floating party boat. While it’s cool, it’s not ready yet. On the other hand, the prototype for the Identified Flying Object has been made and the crowd-funding has begun.
The two-seat IFO has a spherical cockpit capsule measuring 2 meters (6.5 ft.) in diameter. The saucer shape surrounding it is a 4.7-meter-wide (15.4 ft.) carbon fiber disc (available in various colors) containing eight electric rotary engines to drive eight rotors. Power comes from eight rechargeable batteries, one for each engine, and a backup for emergencies. The IFO has a top speed of 190 kmph (120 mph) at a helicopter altitude and can stay aloft for up to 70 minutes depending on load, speed, weather, etc.
That takes care of the tech specs. Let’s move on to the beautiful design.
On land, the IFO stands 10 feet high on six fold-in extendable legs. The doors of the cockpit capsule swing upwards for easy access. The cool way to enter the cockpit is from underneath via an electric elevator.
Alternatively, each passenger can enter from their side of the IFO using a detachable stairway, giving it the classic look for the flying saucer in the original version of The Day Te Earth Stood Still.
Once inside the cockpit, the controls are as easy to use as the latest technology in quadcopters. While there are plenty of engines to keep the IFO airborne, in the event of a serious emergency the capsule can quickly separate from the disc and descend safely to the ground via parachute.
That’s all of the info Lazzarini released at the announcement. He did not reveal a suggested retail price but assured potential investors that all components are readily available in today’s market.
Will the Identified Flying Object become the Ferrari of the sky? It looks like we’ll soon find out. To paraphrase Pierpaolo Lazzarini, think about the IFO and forget about hoverboards, jetpacks and flying cars.

For a number of years, reports of unusual, silent moving, triangular-shaped aircraft have presented a recurring motif in UFO lore. Reports of such aircraft have helped foment a number of responses from the public, which range from notions of “alien visitation”, to the more down-to-Earth (and frankly, the more likely) idea that secret military aircraft operate in our skies, representative of “black projects” that fall well beyond public knowledge.
Perhaps, it could be argued, such technologies fall well beyond the knowledge of not just the public, but of a wide variety of military agencies beyond those specialized fields in which development of said craft may occur.
A recent report seems to detail this sort of “cloak and dagger” aviation, as released to John Greenwald of The Black Vault. The query was received from the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) via Freedom of Information Act Request.
The (NRC) “was created as an independent agency by Congress in 1974 to ensure the safe use of radioactive materials for beneficial civilian purposes while protecting people and the environment.” The agency oversees and monitors commercial nuclear facilities, as well as the use of distributed materials which are nuclear in origin, which require inspection and regulation.
According to the documents obtained by Greenwald, between 1986 and 1989, a triangular unidentified flying object (UFO) reportedly violated a protected area on the property of Cooper Nuclear Station, near the Missouri River. The incident, according to the report, was not reported to the NRC as required.
The summary of the report makes for fascinating reading, as it describes multiple witnesses to a pair of sightings made over the course of two consecutive nights, and my multiple members of the security staff.
A portion of the summary reads as follows:
While posted at the intake structure one night, he observed an “unidentified flying object” fly down the Missouri River about 150 feet in the air and hover in front of the intake. He observed it for a few moments and then contacted a fellow security officer who also observed it (he could not recall the individual’s name exactly but his first name was [REDACTED] and his last name was either [REDACTED ]. After they together observed the UFO, it turned and went back up the river and did not come back that shift. He and the other officer shared their observation with their peers who did not believe them.
The next evening he again was posted at the intake and observed the UFO return again. This time he didn’t call anyone until the UFO had traversed into the protected area and hovered above the protected area just north of the Reactor Building. He said it was roughly triangular in shape with a circle of rotating lights on the bottom. He could not hear any propulsion noise from the UFO. He believes that it was roughly 1/3 the size of the Reactor Building. Once the UFO hovered in the protected area. He called the security break room and most of the officers on shift observed the UFO.
The report notes that the observers, whose names were redacted from the document, were all security officers at the facility, all of whom were still employed at the facility in June of 2010 when the report was filed.
“After hovering there for a few minutes,” the statement concludes, “the UFO exited the protected area and returned back up the river to the north as it had the previous night. The [observer] said that he never saw the UFO at the plant again after that evening.”
“The [observer] believes that this incident should have been reported as a violation of the protected area space but was not reported.” The entire report can be read online here.
The nature and origin of such unusual aircraft as these remain mysterious, though they have been consistently reported over the years. In February, KLAS Las Vegas reporter George Knapp, renowned for his interest in unidentified aerial phenomena, reported on massive, triangular-shaped aircraft which have repeatedly been seen over Nevada for a number of years, leading to some speculation about a “super-size stealth fighter” or other similar massive aircraft.
Prominent aviation writers say they’ve heard rumors about a so-called super size stealth fighter, but the program has not been confirmed. Such a plane would be valuable because it could carry more bombs than the stealth we know today. Clark figures the military wanted to show it off “by flying it across the Valley in broad daylight. They can’t have a press conference since they don’t exist”
In the early 1990s, the Federation of American Scientists conducted their own study into claims of unusual aircraft such as this, which had simply been titled “Mystery Aircraft.” According to the Federation’s Government Secrecy Project Director Steven Aftergood, “The study argues that secrecy in military aerospace has exceeded all reasonable justifications. Such secrecy cannot, in any case, be effectively maintained beyond the early research and development phase, and has little point in the absence of a high-tech adversary.”
“Secrecy in aerospace functions above all as a mechanism for enhancing the political fortunes of questionable programs,” Aftergood wrote. “In short, it appears that many black aircraft programs are designed only to penetrate Congressional airspace.”
This is an interesting note to end on, since the idea that a number of secret aviation technologies might operate with little purpose other than for surveillance and monitoring here at home, rather than for use in operations abroad. Naturally, it does seem to constitute a concern with relation to efforts against unnecessary government secrecy.
As for why they appear from time to time? Much like the observers in the Cooper Nuclear Station incident, their testimony was not believed at the time the observation occurred; hence, there is little need for hiding away something that is so seldom seen, and so strange in appearance that it is hardly to be believed anyway.
As the old saying goes, often the best place to hide something is in plain sight.

The crew of an offshore supply vessel reportedly witnessed a massive UFO rise from the Gulf of Mexico and speed away into the skies, according to testimony logged with MUFON and NUFORC, the National UFO Reporting Center. In the NUFORC report, the chief engineer aboard the unnamed craft claims that on March 21, 2017, he and four members of his crew witnessed a UFO rise silently from the ocean just before dusk.
Approximate location of the sighting.
According to the engineer’s testimony, the craft was completely silent and even appeared to repel water as it rose from the gulf:
The scene lasted about 40 seconds. The craft rose up out of the water (Gulf of Mexico) about 40 feet, no water was dripping from the craft. Within a split second the craft disappeared at a 30-degree angle into the sky. Speed appeared to be faster than the speed of a light turning on in a room. Within seconds it had disappeared completely. I can say for sure that the craft was dark colored, oval in shape and made no sound whatsoever.
NUFORC reportedly followed up with the witness by telephone and assures the chief engineer to be a “very capable, and very reliable, witness.” According to the reports, the craft appeared to be over five times the size of the supply ship.
The offshore supply vessel was in the area to provide material support for oil extraction operations.
While there is only one official testimony so far, the chief engineer claims that there are likely dozens of other witnesses aboard an oil rig located near the location of his vessel at the time of the sighting. This incident took place 80 miles southeast of New Orleans – suspiciously close to the location of the 2010 BP Deepwater Horizon oil spill. Are these two events related? Could the oil spill have caused by alien visitors in an attempt to wean our fledgling civilization off of the perilously dirty fossil fuels on which our modern economy depends?
…but why would aliens be interested in fossil fuels to begin with?
Probably not, but conspiracy theories still surround the controversial spill including a slew of allegations of alien interference. More likely, though, was this reported sighting some kind of strange, misguided attempt to draw public attention back to the environmental damage caused by the oil spill? Who knows. Until more testimony is gathered, this one remains unverified.

Dave Davies is a well-respected man. One of Rolling Stone Magazine’s 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time, he was the founder, lead guitarist and occasional vocalist for The Kinks, one of the most influential bands of the 60’s British invasion and a member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Dave Davies has earned his place in music history. Now, like other rock stars, he finally feels comfortable in opening up about his UFO experiences and alien encounters. Could it be that Lola walked like a woman but talked like a man because she was a shape-shifting alien?
Dave Davies today
In a recent interview with Vulture, Dave Davies talks about a screenplay he’s working on (who isn’t?) about a cop in “futuristic New York” and a “mystic-witch” woman who sings to him from another planet. While it wasn’t directly inspired by an alien experience, Davies admits that he’s seen UFOs.
It was really interesting. I saw them in north Devon in England — lights and zigzags in the skies.
That’s not surprising – Devon is a known hotspot for UFO sightings. But Davies believes that his encounters with UFOs were more than just the usual sightings.
Then when I started to dig deeper into my experience, I understood I was also getting communications — psychic impressions — from aliens.
Davies feels that people like himself who have kept their UFO experiences hidden internally for years get strange feelings from them penetrating their “subconscious and super-conscious.” Over time, he decided to get “really into ufology” and determined that his sightings were related to Sirius, the Dog Star, and that the communications he was receiving originated there.
The early Kinks
As with any rock star from the 60’s and 70’s, one wonders if these “communications” may have been the result of the ingestion of certain psychedelic substances. Davies understands, but thinks they’re real and, if they’re not from aliens, they’re from some other beings.
I’m part Irish, and in Irish folktales there are elementals called pookas that communicate with people. There are all sorts of phenomena about consciousness that we can’t quite explain but that give us wisdom and guidance.
Pookas or púcas are shape-shifting creatures from Celtic mythology (Lola?). Fans of the movie Harvey will remember that Jimmy Stewart’s character referred to his invisible rabbit friend as a pooka. Dave admits that he’s a spiritual person and this other-consciousness connection may run in the family – he says he and his brother Ray rarely need to communicate verbally. In fact, he relates a 1982 “out-of-body experience with myself and an inner-body-experience with other intelligences” where the “other intelligences” communicated with him through sense of smell.
While Dave Davies focuses on the spiritual aspects of his UFO and alien experiences, he acknowledges in the interview that he believes the government knows about aliens and covers it up, but he refuses to discuss this or politics any further.
Was Lola an alien? Davies didn’t say, but he hinted that he and Ray have been playing new songs and might possibly release an album … if he gets a sign to do it.
Scientists, in their never ending search for extremities that may find practical use in aiding humankind, have stumbled upon some fascinating discoveries in recent years. Just to illustrate the point,while conductivity is cool, superconductivity is really cool….

“Overheden bereiden burgers voor op onthullingen over buitenaards bezoek”
Volgens The Disclosure Activists, een internationale organisatie, wordt de aarde al minstens 70 jaar bezocht door buitenaardsen.
Hiervoor is veel fysiek en forensisch bewijs, aldus de groep. Mede-oprichter Russell Calka merkt op dat er sprake is van een kentering.
“De laatste tijd worden binnen de Amerikaanse overheid en andere overheden inspanningen gedaan om deze informatie vrij te geven,” zei hij.
“Op basis van het bewijs dat is verzameld door onderzoekers, getuigenissen van militairen en geopenbaarde overheidsstukken komen we tot drie conclusies,” zei Victor Viggiani, strategisch adviseur van de groep.
“Ten eerste werd en wordt de aarde bezocht door andere beschavingen,” vervolgde hij. “Ten tweede wordt deze informatie doelbewust achtergehouden.”
“Ten derde weten overheden en onderzoekers dat dit zo is en is het nu aan de mensheid om achter de waarheid te komen,” benadrukte Viggiani.
Strange new images of Mars suggest that aliens could be building towers on the planet's surface, according to conspiracy theorists.
A Nasa satellite probe has spotted a large spherical object on the red planet.
The sphere was snapped perched on one of Mars's ancient dried up lakes by the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO).

WHAT ARE MARTIAN SPHERULES?
Also known as blueberries because of a blue hue given to the objects in false-colour images, Martian spherules were discovered by the Mars rover Opportunity in 2004.
One theory is that the spheres may have formed when molten rock was sprayed into the air by a volcano or a meteor impact.
Another suggests they formed when groundwater flowed through porous rocks creating chemical reactions that cause iron minerals to precipitate into layered balls.
The satellite has been mapping Mars from the planet's orbit since 2005.
The bright sphere, which casts a long shadow across Mars's dusty surface in the picture, was spotted by Alien hunters MarsMoonSpaceTV.
In the video, the team zoom in on an image taken by Nasa's MRO of a Martian lake that dried up millions of years ago.
The sphere can be seen perched on the edge of what remains of the giant lake in an area that was once covered by water.
'The massive white spherical object is unmistakable,' UFO YouTube channel SecureTeam10 explains in a video about the sphere.
'As you look around the image you don't see anything else like this and that's why it stuck out like a sore thumb.
'From the shadow it's casting I would have to say that this thing is not only large but it may have some height to it, so we may have a tower structure here.'

LINKS BETWEEN CONSPIRACY, NARCISSISM AND SELF-ESTEEM
Over the course of three online-based studies, researchers at the University of Kent showed strong links between the belief in conspiracy theories and these psychological traits.
The results showed that those people who rated highly on the narcissism scale and who had low self-esteem were more likely to be conspiracy believers.
However, while low self-esteem, narcissism and belief in conspiracies are strongly linked, it is not clear that one - or a combination - causes the other.
But it hints at an interesting new angle to the world of conspiracy and those who reinforce belief.
'Conspiracy theorists are fascinated by the idea that there are towers on Mars,' Nigel Watson, author of the UFO Investigations Manual, told MailOnline.
'This would be proof that in the past Mars hosted highly organised and advanced civilisations, unfortunately it seems to be a matter of wishful thinking.
'For me it is a large stretch of the imagination that this sphere provides evidence of a tower structure. Such things are more likely to be caused by natural formations, but until we get boots on the Martian surface we are all left to guess.'
The images most likely show an example of a Martian 'spherule'.
Also known as blueberries because of a blue hue given to the objects in false-colour images, Martian spherules were discovered by the Mars rover Opportunity in 2004.
One theory is the spheres may have formed when molten rock was sprayed into the air by a volcano or a meteor impact.
Another theory suggests they formed when groundwater flowed through porous rocks creating chemical reactions that cause iron minerals to precipitate into small, layered balls.

The strange sphere is not the first to be spotted on Mars's surface this year.
Captured by the Mars Rover Curiosity, an image taken on 1 January shows a small dark sphere looking out of place lying among the familiar red dust and craggy rocks.
Some suggested it was a marble, but experts claimed it was an example of a Martian spherule.
'A number of straightforward geological processes can yield round shapes,' said Dr Hap McSween, an Opportunity science team member from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville.
A black and white picture taken on 20 December 2016 shows the same ball in the same place, although Martian dust appears to have covered surrounding rocks since then.
The pictures were taken by Nasa's Curiosity rover - which has been examining the surface of Mars since it landed in 2011 - using its right mast camera.

Latest alien scoop: Mars images show spoon shaped object
New book will detail how to hunt for micrometeorites
By William J. Broad • New York Times News Service
After decades of failures and misunderstandings, scientists have solved a cosmic riddle — what happens to the tons of dust particles that hit the Earth every day but seldom, if ever, get discovered in the places that humans know best, like buildings and parking lots, sidewalks and park benches.
The answer? Nothing. Look harder. The tiny flecks are everywhere.
An international team found that rooftops and other cityscapes readily collect the extraterrestrial dust in ways that can ease its identification, contrary to science authorities who long ago pooh-poohed the idea as little more than an urban myth kept alive by amateur astronomers.
Remarkably, the leader of the discovery team — and co-author of a recent paper in Geology, a monthly journal of the Geological Society of America — turns out to be a gifted amateur who devoted himself to disproving the skeptics.
A noted jazz musician in Norway, he rearranged his life to include eight long years of extraterrestrial sleuthing. His hunt has now produced a significant discovery, a colorful book for lay readers and what scientists call a portrait gallery of alien visitors.
“I hope and believe this will start something,” the musician, Jon Larsen, said in an interview. His goal? “Making it easy.”
His book, “In Search of Stardust: Amazing Micro-Meteorites and Their Terrestrial Imposters,” due out in August, details the secret of his extraordinarily successful hunts. Its 150 pages and 1,500 photomicrographs, or photos taken through a microscope, tell how Larsen taught himself to distinguish cosmic dust from the minuscule contaminants that arise from roads, shingles, factories, roof tiles, construction sites, home insulation and holiday fireworks.
As his book puts it, “To pick out one extraterrestrial particle among billions of others requires knowledge both about what to look for and what to disregard.”
The diminutive flecks to which Larsen, 58, has devoted himself represent the smallest parts of a cosmic downpour that has lashed the Earth for billions of years.
Careful observers of the night sky are familiar with shooting stars — speeding bits of extraterrestrial rock that plunge through the Earth’s atmosphere, often burning up completely.
The biggest can strike the ground, some forcefully enough to dig craters. In 2013, a relatively small rock exploded over the Russian city Chelyabinsk, releasing a shock wave that injured hundreds of people, mainly as windows shattered into flying glass.
But all that represents a tiny fraction of the downpour. Scientists say most of the cosmic material is remarkably small — barely the width of a human hair. Known as micrometeorites, they rain down on the planet more or less continuously but have proved remarkably hard to find. Some bits are so small and lightweight that they drift down to the Earth’s surface without melting.
The dust consists of tiny remnants from the solar system’s birth, including debris from the lumps of dirty ice known as comets and from ages of smashups among planets and the big rocks known as asteroids. While most of the particles are interplanetary in nature, some contain grains of matter from outside the solar system, or true stardust. Their diversity makes them excellent windows on the cosmos.
Scientists have found micrometeorites mainly in the Antarctic, remote deserts and other places far from civilization’s haze. Starting in the 1940s and 1950s, investigators tried to find them in urban areas but eventually gave up because of the riot of human contaminants.
Significantly, it turns out that specialists trying to establish the cosmic origins of the tiny specks have tended to examine their chemical signatures rather than their overall appearance. That left a large opening for Larsen.
Matthew J. Genge, one of the Geology paper’s four authors and a senior lecturer in earth and planetary science at Imperial College, London, used an electron microprobe at the Natural History Museum in London to determine the chemical makeup of Larsen’s finds and confirm their cosmic origin.
In an interview, he said that, overall, the grains that survive the atmospheric plunge and land on the Earth’s surface add up to more than 4,000 tons annually, or more than 10 tons a day. “He’s done a valuable thing in classifying the contaminants,” Genge said of Larsen’s work. “It has wide-reaching implications.”
Donald Brownlee, an astronomer at the University of Washington who helped establish the field, called Larsen a true citizen scientist whose work will aid the global hunt for the tiny specks.
“Your car is covered with cosmic dust,” Brownlee said. “We inhale this stuff. We eat it every time we eat lettuce. But normally, it’s incredibly difficult to find.”
Larsen came to what he calls Project Stardust as a jazz guitarist in Norway, perhaps known best as the founder of Hot Club de Norvège, a string quartet. His group helped spur the global revival of gypsy jazz.
As Larsen tells the story, he was an enthusiastic rock collector as a child but did so well as a musician that he set aside his early scientific ambitions. Then, in 2009, at a country house outside Oslo, he was cleaning an outdoor table when a bright speck caught his eye.
“It was blinking in the sunlight,” he recalled. He touched the fleck. “It was angular in some way, kind of metallic but so small — a tiny dot.”
Intrigued, Larsen suspected it was a cosmic visitor and began to look for more. He collected dust samples from Oslo and cities around the globe, moonlighting as a scientist while vacationing or touring with his jazz group. He took samples from roads, roofs, parking lots and industrial areas.
Put indelicately, he collected hundreds of pounds of dreck — sludge from drains, gutters and downspouts, the dregs of civilization that most people try to avoid.
“Still, I didn’t find a single micrometeorite,” he recalled. “It was very frustrating.”
Larsen then changed tactics. Rather than looking exclusively for cosmic dust, he taught himself how to classify the dozens of different kinds of earthly contaminants, starting a process of elimination that slowly narrowed the candidates and raised the chances that some tiny fraction of the urban debris might turn out to belong to the cosmos.
The breakthrough came two years ago. In London, Genge studied one of the gathered particles — from Norway, not Timbuktu — and confirmed that it was indeed a traveler from outer space. Larsen quickly identified hundreds more.
“Once I knew what to look for, I found them everywhere,” he said.
In the Geology paper, the scientific team reports the discovery of about 500 micrometeorites — collected mainly from roof gutters in Norway — and tells of the detailed analysis of 48 of the extraterrestrial specks. The team includes two of Genge’s students, Martin D. Suttle of Imperial College and Matthias Van Ginneken of the Université Libre in Brussels.
In an interview, Larsen described his method — sorting through the contaminants in a process of elimination — as “something that anybody can do. It could and should become part of teachings in schools, an aspect of citizen science.”
Brownlee of the University of Washington agreed. He said that, while many schools try to find cosmic dust particles in programs meant to make science classes more inviting and accessible, few if any succeed. “It could help a lot,” he said of Larsen’s method. “For education, it’s pretty cool.”
Genge of Imperial College said Larsen’s techniques, if adopted widely, might also open a new lens on the cosmos.
The gravitational pull of the planets, he noted, appear to tug on the dust clouds of the solar system and slowly change their orbits. He said a wave of new terrestrial finds could help scientists better map the clouds, raising more questions for science about the structure of the universe.
“I consider my microscope a telescope,” Genge said. “It can give you a pretty big picture.”
With his aggressive, distorted guitar riffs for the Kinks, Dave Davies changed a lot of lives, as his playing on British Invasion hits like “You Really Got Me” helped open the path from rock toward punk and metal. He’s also deeply affected people in ways that have nothing to do with music: Davies — who recently turned 70 and has a lovely and reflective new album recorded with his son Russ, Open Road, out March 31 — is a prolific New Age writer and teacher. And, for very personal reasons, he knows an awful lot about UFOs.
Davies shared some of his supernatural experiences — with and without the Kinks — from a sofa at the Gibson guitar showroom in midtown Manhattan, where was taking a break from rehearsals in advance of a tour that begins April 6 in Milwaukee.
I know you’re open to the idea of reincarnation. Assuming you come back around for another go, would you want to live life as a rock star again?
[Long pause.] That’s something to think about, isn’t it? Rock star, I don’t know, but when I come around again, I would hate if music wasn’t part of my existence. But who knows what will happen? Life can be an adventure if you let it. You have to choose to ignore the forces that try and put all these rules on you: where you can park, how you spend your day, what to do with your money. Are all these rules here to help us or tie us into knots?
You and your brother Ray are some of rock’s most infamously combative siblings. Did your problems with him make you at all hesitant to work with your son on the new album? Being in business with your family isn’t easy.
No, I wasn’t hesitant at all. Me and Russ have worked together before and it went beautifully. One of those projects was a mix of science fiction and strange spiritual ideas. I’m writing a screenplay for that now. I’m also trying to turn it into a theatrical piece and take it one the road, but it’s hard to find the time and money.
What’s it about?
It’s about two lovers. The woman is on another planet and the main guy is a disillusioned cop who’s a bit of a drunk. It takes place in a futuristic New York where the whole city is run by crime. These two people know each other from past lives, and the guy keeps having dreams with this woman in them where she’s singing to him from her planet — she’s a mystic-witch type. It’s complicated, but it’s basically about the two of them trying to connect with each other.
Is it based on any experiences you’ve had? You’ve claimed to have seen UFOs, right?
Yeah, I have. I’ve had several experiences seeing UFOs. It was really interesting. I saw them in north Devon in England — lights and zigzags in the skies. Then when I started to dig deeper into my experience, I understood I was also getting communications — psychic impressions — from aliens.
How did you know it was aliens and not just you having a brain blip or something?
I’m sure there are many people in the world who can explain it better than I can. You have an experience with a UFO, and you keep those feelings, and then it gets into your subconscious and super-conscious. When I investigated what those feelings could be, when I got really into ufology, I could’ve sworn I was having connections with the Dog Star, with Sirius. Sirius has very deep connections with Earth. Over time, there’s been contact that developed into — did you ever see the film Harvey?
Yeah. That’s the one where Jimmy Stewart has an imaginary human-sized rabbit friend.
Maybe this extraterrestrial intelligence is my rabbit. I’m part Irish, and in Irish folktales there are elementals called pookas that communicate with people. There are all sorts of phenomena about consciousness that we can’t quite explain but that give us wisdom and guidance.
Does your pooka or alien intelligence have any thoughts about whether or not there’s ever going to be a new Kinks album?
Good question! Come back to Earth, Dave! Come back to the ground! Me and Ray are getting on a lot better now than we have in the past. We always talk about doing things together, but I don’t know. We’re old men now for Christ’s sake. We worked on a few demos not that long ago and maybe we’ll turn those into an album. I don’t want to say much more about it now and talk myself into any corners. If I get a special feeling like I did when Ray wrote that riff for “Sunny Afternoon,” it’ll be a sign we should maybe do new Kinks music.
What does Ray think about your interest in spiritualism and UFOs?
He gives me a hard time about everything. The funny thing is that Ray is a very psychic person. It runs in our family. My mom had so much wisdom. Sometimes I’m just waking up from sleeping and I can swear I hear Ray’s thinking — his ideas and songs. He’s very sensitive. When he and I used to walk into the studio, we’d never really have to communicate verbally. I actually found it difficult when I started playing with other musicians because they wouldn’t know what I was thinking. I’d be feeling, Why don’t they just know what to do? [Laughs.] Life is strange and just gets stranger.
Does the government know about aliens?
But they’re covering it up?
I’m not going to say anything about this.
Do you think it’s possible that our belief in things like pookas and UFOs and New Age spiritualism are metaphors we’ve unconsciously come up with to try and provide a framework for understanding the experience of our lives?
My pooka, my Harvey, is my inner light. I know it exists. It happens a lot that people get irritated when I talk about these things. Nowadays people are much more open-minded, but in the early ’80s when I first started talking about these things people thought I’d gone ’round the bend. Probably I had. I think we try to pretend we all know what we’re doing, when none of us know what we’re doing. Nobody really knows anything. But that shouldn’t prevent us from looking for answers.
Did you have a single revelation or experience that made you believe in esoterica?
I had several. A spiritual journey isn’t one thing, it’s peaks and valleys. When I had my first kind of nervous breakdown at the end of the ’60s, start of the ’70s, I did not feel right about anything.
What caused the breakdown?
It was too much drugs and drinking — the same old rock-and-roll story. My whole system was out of balance. I was like a one-legged man trying to hop through life. Then I discovered yoga and astrology and I liked how they helped me to see that maybe we’re all part of a more cosmic story than the one I was living. Science knows all about this, about alpha waves and such, but it just chops everything up into such small pieces that you never get a sense of the whole. It’s a vast subject we’re talking about.
Can you share a specific revelation you’ve had?
I had a spectacular one in 1982. It was an out-of-body experience with myself and an inner-body-experience with other intelligences. It was as real as you and me sitting here talking. Probably more real.
What information did they give you?
It’s hard to describe. A lot of the information I was given came through sense of smell. Smell is a language. Why do we get inspired by the smell of jasmine? Because it speaks to us.
Does someone with your interests have much to say about politics right now? Or does that seem like mundane earthly foolishness?
I don’t touch on politics. I’m not a political person. [Long pause.] I’m not going to say it.
Say what I’m not going to say?
Politics rules the world in this age, but I don’t think politics works. If the system’s rigged, I don’t think politics are the solution to our problems. There are other ways to learn from each other and help each other without all this confrontation. Why are we in competition with each other? We need to transcend that.
There was a New York Times article recently about how Steve Bannon and these far-right thinkers are into the fascist writer Julius Evola, who was deeply into the occult. It reminded me of how Himmler and some of the Nazi leadership were also fascinated with occult and magic.
On the off chance that some of the new wave of neo-Nazis and alt-right bozos are into magic rituals, is there any good magic we can use against them?
I can’t speak to exactly what you’re asking about, but I’ll say this: Know your enemy. Sometimes, it’s important to know about things like black magic in order to know what to do about it. It’s necessary to go through darkness to find out about ourselves. But if someone wants to bring someone else down, that’s entering into Darth Vader territory — the dark side. There is no great secret to doing good. Everything is energy, we’re all magicians. It seems pretty obvious to me that you can choose the good over the evil. It’s all about balance: left and right, dark and light. Bringing these things into harmony will result in positive energy. And don’t forget we all have aspects of male and female.
Like how everyone is born with nipples?
Yeah. We overcomplicate things because we get fearful and confrontational. These are all vast subjects you’re bringing up. Do you know the answers to all these questions?
Neither do I. That’s the fun part.
What’s the best Kinks guitar riff?
Obviously “You Really Got Me” was an immense turning point for us and for a lot of people. There was nothing like that on the radio before. One of my favorites though is “Powerman.” I came up with all the riffs on that, the chromatic up and down. I played that song recently when I was listening to some old Kinks stuff and thought, That’s really good. We did all right, didn’t we?
Stateside's conversation with UFO enthusiast Harry Willnus.
It began in March, 1966 , with a sighting over a farm in Dexter.
Lights were seen hovering and then zipping across the sky. Reports came in from all over the area. One Washtenaw County sheriff deputy was quoted as calling the objects, whatever they were, “the weirdest things I’ve ever seen.”
The official explanation — flares caused by the burning of gases bubbling up from the area’s swamps — was unsatisfactory to many of those involved. Then-congressman Gerald Ford called for a congressional investigation. It never happened.
It wasn’t long before that UFO mania had swept the nation. UFO reports were pouring in from all over the country. This was the era that sparked Hollywood’s love-affair with aliens, leading to blockbusters like E.T. the Extra Terrestrial and Close Encounters of the Third Kind. Walter Cronkite anchored a 1966 CBS report titled, “UFO: Friend, Foe or Fantasy?” which featured the Dexter incident.
But after the UFO fever subsided, after the Hollywood productions made their millions, after NASA's moon program closed for good—in short, after America moved on — the question remained: what really happened in Dexter that March?
This March 14, 1966 article from the Ann Arbor news described the area's initial UFO sighting.
CREDIT ANN ARBOR DISTRICT LIBRARY NEWSPAPER ARCHIVE
Harry Willnus was a teacher in the area at the time. He has been searching for an answer to that question for the last 51 years.
During the course of that half-century, Willnus has spoken with many of the most important humans involved in the incident.
Nothing he's heard or seen has convinced him that the official version of events is the correct one.
“I’ve been studying this,” Willnus said, “I’m convinced that planet Earth is being observed.”
Willnus described a particularly strange series of events involving Allen Hynek, the scientist brought in by the Air Force to investigate the incident.
One afternoon not long after the sightings, Hynek spent several hours looking for evidence in the Dexter swamp. He was accompanied by Washtenaw County Sheriff Douglas Harvey, who led the local response to the sightings.
Afterwards, on the drive back from the swamp, Hynek told the sheriff he still did not have an explanation for the sightings. But later, back at the sheriff's office, Hynek received a phone call from Washington, D.C.
"Hynek stepped out of the office, took the call, came back in a few minutes later. Harvey described him as looking a bit shaken," Willnus said. "He had his head down and he was mumbling ‘Swamp gas, swamp gas, it was swamp gas.' I don’t think Hynek knew what swamp gas was.”
Listen to our full interview with Harry Willnus above, in which he recounts a UFO sighting of his own.
Classicaly-depicted UFO, features "saucer-like" features. Officially, these do not exist.
HOUSTON- Houston is known as, "Space City", thanks to NASA. Many real life astronauts call it home. Perhaps it's only natural that we'd also be an epicenter for UFO reports. Or, is there something more going on?
Each year the KHOU 11 weather team gets several viewer reports of strange lights in the sky. As meteorology encompasses everything in the sky, we welcome such reports and encourage you to contact us without fear of being stigmatized.
UFO enthusiasts might suggest that strange lights in the sky are the direct result of the presence of our expansive space industry as perhaps our astrophysicists are working directly with, "ET's" to innovate new technologies. That's pure speculation of course, but then again, isn't all talk of UFO's? Maybe, "ET observers" are hovering above, hoping to witness human history being made as we plan a mission to Mars. Maybe aliens know Houston makes the best breakfast tacos in the solar system, so they drop in from time to time.
Even accomplished NASA professionals like astronaut Gordon Cooper (died 2004) and Dr. Edgar Mitchell (died 2016) claimed UFO's were not imagined. They submitted to TV interviews testifying to their experiences adn beliefs on the subject. Dr. Mitchell started a research foundation (FREE). Both fully understood the taboo and stigma associated with such viewpoints -- knowing their professional legacy was on the line.
Skeptics will say the lights are explainable: we have two major airports and several busy secondary air strips, resulting in scores of planes flying in our skies at any one time. They'll point out that when jets are on, "final approach", their landing lights are illuminated and can look like bright orbs, apparently floating in the sky for minutes, relative to the observer. They'll say that we're beyond reach of other solar systems for casual space travel, due to the limitations of the speed of light.
Then there's the actual reports. Just last week, the popular UFO organization, MUFON (Mutual UFO Network) reported an entire maritime crew on a supply ship seeing a large alien craft over the Gulf of Mexico, as emerging from underwater, about 80 miles off New Orleans. Without dripping even a drop of water as it broke the surface, it then zipped off into space, accelerating at unimaginable rate. This report is just one of many around the area.
So what's going on? Is there something about Space City, or do we all have moments where our imagination runs away with our sense of logic?
California is the top state with most UFO sightings, say UFO experts
California is the top state with most UFO sightings, say UFO experts
JAKE ELLISON, SPECIAL TO SEATTLEPI.COM
Think you may have caught a glimpse of a metal, sphere-shaped object looming in the night sky above? Well, you're not alone.
According to a new UFO reference book, self-published by two UFO experts, California is the top state with the most UFO sightings in the country. California is followed by Florida, Texas, Washington and Pennsylvania respectively. New York came in at 6th followed by Arizona, Illinois, Michigan and Ohio.
She used both databases every week looking for New York sightings for her column in the weekly Syracuse New Times, she said, and started publishing tables for number of sightings in each New York county, shape of UFOs, when they were reported, etc.
Response to those stats was strong, she said. So when her spouse and co-author Linda Miller Costa got the idea of working through the reports to see just how far down they could drill for every state in the country, they started digging. The end result a year later is the 374-page desk reference.
She said there have been more than 120,000 UFO sightings reported from 2001-2015 in the U.S. She didn't want to give away all the stats (you know, they do want you to get the book) but she said California holds down the top position with almost 16,000 sightings, and Los Angeles County outranks 40 individual states with 3,200 sightings.
Her interest in UFOs stem from her personal UFO sightings, Cheryl Costa said, but her drive to write about sightings came from reading a short news story claiming UFO sightings had fallen off. The report suggested UFO were clearly not real since fewer and fewer people were reporting them, she said.
"That didn't sound right," she said. "I went out to one of the national data bases and the bar chart (of sightings) goes up like a rocket launch."
And, she added, the reports were not from clearly crazy people.
"I found that the majority of sighting reports where by people who were very sincere, and it had energized them to find a place to report what they saw," she said. "They wanted to get this off their chest."
A couple other trends she noticed were, one, "the people who see the majority of sightings are outside having a smoke, walking the dog or outside smoking walking the dog." And, two, "there's a seasonal pattern." For most of the country, reported sightings begin to climb during spring and summer. In places without notable shifts from winter to summer — Texas, Florida and Arizona, for example — the number of reporting’s stays relatively flat. Basically, she figures, come spring and summer, people are simply outside more.
Virginia witness reports silent, low flying boomerang UFO
Virginia witness reports silent, low flying boomerang UFO
A Virginia witness at Alexandria reported watching a large, boomerang-shaped object with five, large, circle-shaped lights underneath crossing the sky silently over 500 feet, but under the cloud cover, according to testimony in Case 82719 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.
Witness illustration of the object.
The witness was outside sitting on his apartment deck smoking a cigar at 8:30 p.m. on March 19, 2017, when the incident occurred.
“I was facing in a southern direction, looking at the constellation Orion,” the witness stated.“My eyes were well adjusted to the night sky when some movement below Orion (but much closer my location) caught my eye.”
An object in the sky caught his eye.
“I fixed my eyes on the movement, and realized it was a large, boomerang-shaped aircraft moving in a straight southern direction at fairly slow speed. It had five large circles on the underside of the craft that were just a slightly different color than the craft itself. Very dark, charcoal gray circles against a black craft.”
Alexandria sits just south of Washington D.C.
The witness said the object blended in with the night sky extremely well, like camouflage.
“Without catching the movement at that exact moment I did, it would have been impossible to see. It stayed visible for approximately 8-10 seconds before fading into the night sky. The aircraft had no visible lights whatsoever and had no jet noise. Other aircraft were flying in my sight before and after the event. These were all different airliners (flashing lights, jet engine noise) flying at different altitudes and directions. My area gets heavy air traffic due to an airport and military installations nearby, so I’m very used to seeing and hearing several civilian and military aircraft from small planes to large jets and helicopters.”
The witness has a military background.
“I also served in the Air Force and Air National Guard in the past and have never seen an aircraft anything like the one I saw this evening. It was truly unbelievable.”
The object had a light configuration that the witness had never seen. Pictured: Alexandria, VA.
Alexandria is an independent city in Virginia, population 139,966. Virginia MUFON is investigating. Please remember that most UFO sightings can be explained as something natural or man-made. The above quotes were edited for clarity. Please report UFO activity to MUFON.com.
UFO Appears Through Space Station Window On Live Cam, March 2017, Video, UFO Sighting News.
UFO Appears Through Space Station Window On Live Cam, March 2017, Video, UFO Sighting News.
Date of sighting: March 2017 Location of sighting: International Space Station This week an astronaut on board the space station was removing a panel area blocking the view of the window on live TV when the suddenly as she was talking a UFO appeared. The UFO was small or very far away. The UFO also didn't move in a straight line, but headed upward, then curved downward, which is impossible for thinks in space to do, unless of course they are intelligently controlled. Its also possible this is a living creature. You see, Russia last year stated that they were cleaning the outside of the space station solar panels when they discovered that plankton was growing on them. And not just small plankton, but overly large plankton. These plankton travel through space and clung to the first thing they ran into to, the space station. This is also why cameras often show long worm like objects on the lens...plankton. So you see, if plankton can exist in space floating around, the just like in the ocean, life can exist and swim about space like water. Scott C. Waring
There have been many unidentified flying objects sighted throughout history. This list details some of the earlier sightings that have been written down or passed on. Some are exciting, and some are just plain weird. Several surprisingly big names have reported UFOs throughout history.
Daytime UFO caught on tape over Colfax, Washington 27-Mar-2017
Daytime UFO caught on tape over Colfax, Washington 27-Mar-2017
UFO video of a solid object that was hovering in the sky above Colfax in Washington. This was filmed on Monday, 27th March 2017.
Only appeared on recording, did not see with naked eye, but observed while recording on screen. I was driving home through a relatively unfamiliar area and stopped to record some pleasant scenery as the weather was quite nice for a change. As I was taking the video I noticed something strange on my screen but couldnt actually see it with the naked eye I dismissed it as something on my windshield, but then all of a sudden I started to feel as if I was having a panic attack and my heart was beating very fast and erratically so I stopped recording and continued my drive home. Upon review of the video I realized that there was some sort of craft zipping around those wind turbines I was admiring, it appeared quickly out of nowhere, and hovered in sort of a circular motion a considerable distance away, Looked like two discs flying tightly in tandem, with a light radiating around them at times.
When a large asteroid hits water, it can create two tsunamis when it hits the ocean surface and the ocean floor.
The crater, and the thumbprint formation at the site are proof of the ancient tsunamis, the researchers claim.
Professor Costard, study lead, added: "The possibility that a large ocean once occupied the Martian northern plains is one of the most important and controversial hypotheses to have originated for the exploration of Mars."
Although the team did not comment on whether any lifeforms may have existed at the time.
Last year NASA revealed that Mars had lost nearly all of its atmosphere, making it inhospitable now, after the sun stripped it away with solar rays over billions of years.
REVELATION: Alan Bean has revealed his views on aliens
US spaceman Alan Bean became the fourth person to ever walk on the moon in 1969, aged 37.
Now, almost 50 years after the historic Apollo 12 mission, Mr Bean has opened up about his views on aliens
The 85-year-old ex-navy officer does not believe extraterrestrials have ever visited Earth.
He believes intelligent alien life forms would make themselves known, declare “peace” and share advanced “gadgets” with humans.
Because this has not happened, Mr Bean, who retired from NASA in 1981, says aliens have not yet made contact.
MoD expert on aliens: Government knows "more than they let on"
His comments will be a huge blow to truth seekers who are adamant UFOs have been secretly visiting Earth for decades.
Some conspiracy theorists even claim world leaders are covering up the existence of aliens.
But Mr Bean’s views about “friendly and altruistic” aliens contradicts these theories.
He said: "I do not believe that anyone from outer space has ever visited the Earth.
"One of the reasons I don't believe they have been here is that civilisations that are more advanced are more altruistic and friendly — like Earth, which is better than it used to be — so they would have landed and said 'we come in peace and we know from our studies you have cancer that kills people, we solved that problem 50 years ago, here's the gadget we put on a person's chest that will cure it, we will show you how to make it'."

“I do not believe that anyone from outer space has ever visited the Earth.”
Mr Bean believes humans would do the same for aliens if we had advanced space travel technology.
But despite his views, the moonwalker believes there “must be” planets that have formed alien life.
He said: "There's so many billions of stars and these stars have planets around them so there must be statistically many planets around many stars that have formed life.
"Maybe some of them are like our life was 100,000 years ago, and some of them are like we are now, and there are probably some out there that are a 10,000 years in the future from where we are now."
Yet Stephen Bassett, of the Paridigm Research Group, is convinced aliens have visited Earth.
Mr Bassett, who lobbies the US government on alien disclosure, said: “The evidence that aliens have come here is undeniable."
According to an astonishing conspiracy theory, NASA is covering up evidence about “what’s really on the moon”.
The incident took place at night, when the mysterious objects were spotted in the sky emitting an orange light and they appeared to hover in the sky. After a while the leftmost light of the three,is seen disappearing.
The video was shot by a UFO hunter named Richard, who works with a YouTube channel called Finding UFO.
The strange object seemed to be unaffected by factors like wind and gravity. The darkness of the night sky made it hard to figure out whether it was one triangular UFO, or three separate ones.
More mysterious findings have been revealed by alien hunter Tyler from Secure Team 10 in the video. He claimed to have footage revealing an image taken by the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) which was shown by another YouTube channel. The image shows a mysterious spherical object buried in the Martian surface.
And finally, Tyler also talked about the NASA statement, posted by Huffington Post, in which NASA defines the mysterious flying objects spotted near the ISS as debris and not UFOs.
The space agency even bluntly denied seeing any UFO at the ISS , with the aim of rubbishing the last UFO sighting video published by an alien hunter. The video shows two strange craft flying past the ISS.
Previous claims made by UFOlogists and alien hunters have been rubbished by NASA which claimed the 'alien objects' in footage are lens flare or some sort of camera disturbances, and even space junk.
The Disclosure Activists Say Governments Are Preparing Citizens For Extraterrestrial Disclosure
The Disclosure Activists Say Governments Are Preparing Citizens For Extraterrestrial Disclosure
Recent Events, Document Releases, and Leaks Reveal Disclosures From World Governments And U.S. Government Plan For Disclosure Of The UFO/UAP Phenomenon.
New York, NY (PRWEB) March 28, 2017
The Disclosure Activists are an international consortium leading an effort to uncover and disseminate the truth regarding extraterrestrial visitation going back 70 years. This is a widely misunderstood topic, despite a plethora of physical and forensic evidence regarding the extraterrestrial UFO/UAP (Unidentified Aerial Phenomena) issue. The historical stance of widespread denial and misinformation has shifted. Co-founder Russell Calka states: 'Recently there is a systematic effort from within the U.S. and other world governments to release this information to the public'.
Senior strategic adviser to The Disclosure Activists, Victor Vigianni, states: ‘All of the evidence that has been accumulated by researchers, military witness testimony, and acquired from declassified government documents over the last 70 years points to three very basic conclusions — the planet Earth has been and is being engaged by off-world civilizations. Secondly — this information has been hidden from the public in a well orchestrated and systematic embargo on the truth. Thirdly, governments know these conclusions are true — researchers of this topic know these conclusions are true, and it is now time for humanity to learn these truths'.
The Disclosure Activists contend that Disclosure is already underway. Earlier this month, the Spanish Ministry of Defence released a cache of previously classified UFO/UAP documents, similar to documents released by the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) in January 2017, and similar to other document releases from governments in the UK, Chile, and Mexico. NASA reported the discovery of additional habitable exoplanets (bringing the total to well over 3000) and just this month, former President George W. Bush alluded to his knowledge of the UFO/UAP phenomenon in an interview on late night television with Jimmy Kimmel. There have also been email leaks, via Wikileaks, that indicate this topic is of substantial interest to government and military, as they prepare citizens for disclosure of extraterrestrial visitation.
Co-Founder Dr. Lisa Galarneau states: 'Through these government disclosures, scientific discoveries of exoplanets, leaks, and hints from insiders, the public is being prepared for official announcements regarding extraterrestrial visitation. This awareness building campaign is deliberate in its attempt to prepare humanity for formal Disclosure. This is an important step towards open contact with extraterrestrial intelligences who have not shown hostile intentions and could help humanity with some of our most intractable problems, including energy, climate change, pollution, and resource scarcity'.
A more optimistic approach to the question of extraterrestrial intelligence is expressed in The Disclosure Activists' mandate, which includes a manifesto that outlines the mission and activities. The Disclosure Activists also acknowledge that some UFO/UAP and other contact activity is sourced in secret projects run by governments. Truth and transparency is necessary in any functioning democracy, especially regarding extraterrestrial UFO/UAP.
The Disclosure Activists pursue unification of various Disclosure groups and investigators, petitions to governments, calls for investigations and hearings, Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests, and education/outreach to press/media and the broader population. Citizens require information and research in a historical context to prepare for the forthcoming government announcements of extraterrestrial visitation.
Disclosure is imminent. Press and media should be responsible for accurate and open research and reporting of the plethora of UFO/UAP and contact evidence, as well as integrating the history of disclosure that has been unfolding for 70 years. We are not alone in the cosmos and we never have been. Citizens have a need to know.
Aliens Are Already Here And Ready To Take Over: Canadian Researcher
Aliens Are Already Here And Ready To Take Over: Canadian Researcher
UFO sightings a plentiful across Canada and nearly every other country in the world. However, there has NEVER been any real proof that aliens exist, let alone are visiting earth.
Someone on the other hand is fully confident that we actually already have been visited by aliens, the Canadian researcher, and nuclear physicist Stanton Friedman .
Speaking to Australia’s news.com, the Canadian scientist believes that our planet has been visited by aliens several times, but they simply do not have any plans to reveal their existence yet.
According to Friedman dark adds the visits of governments and security agencies worldwide.
– We have enough evidence to prove beyond doubt that the Earth is visited by aliens. The information was kept from us, for who would want to create chaos? There would be mass panic and great concern, says Stanton Friedman told the Daily Star Online.
– What if the aliens want to make themselves seen, it’s easy – and they will do it, continues Stanton.
The 82-year-old scientist is the frontman of the UFO movement and has worked with a number of secret investigations.
His theory is that the aliens choose to stay in the shadows for eventually colonize us earthlings and prevent us from to populate other planets. Friedman argues that it is simply because we humans have proven that we are evil.
Another reason why aliens visit blinded, says he is for political reasons.
According to Friedman’s theory, these are of a race between the US, Russia and China. The first one can copy the aliens’ technology will automatically become the most powerful in the world, says Friedman, according to the Daily Star Online
Columnist Cheryl Costa examines several encounters of extraterrestrials in New York over the years.
A week doesn’t go by that someone doesn’t ask me if off-world beings are visiting Earth, and more specifically, New York state. Of course, I find myself between a rock and a hard place. If I say yes, I get verbally assaulted with lines like, “You have no evidence of extraterrestrials!” If I say no, I get plenty of verbiage to the tune of, “But what about all the reports?”
For the record I believe extra-ordinary beings have visited Earth and specifically New York state. Does that mean they are all space aliens? Not necessarily. But I’ll discuss that topic in a future article. I did a little digging and here are some snippets of what New Yorkers have reported over the years.
1. In the spring in the early 1880s, a group of children was walking down a country road to school near Cameron in Steuben County. As the children were about to cross a bridge over a swollen creek, they saw several little bald men with big eyes and were wearing blue coveralls. The children ran home terrified.
2. In Sullivan County in 1942, a 10-year-old boy was grounded inside the family cottage for an earlier misdeed. While the young man was making the best of his “imposed alone time,” he heard a light tapping on the window. He looked outside and saw a strange, little bald person with huge, dark eyes. No one in his family believed him.
3. In 1954, just outside of Peekskill in Westchester County, a married couple witnessed a female who was wearing clothing that was glowing, including strange goggles. The missus was so emotionally overcome by the experience that she had to be taken to a hospital.
4. In the fall of 1957 in Schenectady County, a woman observed a flying disk coming down from the sky. She said it hovered above the ground and several dark-skinned little men with big eyes exited the craft. She later told investigators that the beings flashed some sort of beam at her and her young child. Both the woman and her child developed a strange rash on their bodies and required medical attention.
5. In the dead of winter of 1957 in Erie County near the village of Depew, a woman was driving down a road in a snow storm when the engine of her car stalled and quit. She looked around to see if there was anyone she could ask for help. That’s when she saw through the falling snow a glowing craft that appeared to be hovering slightly above the snow covered ground. Through the snow she observed two beings. She described them as tall insect like creatures. When the strange beings noticed her in her car, they returned to this craft and it took off, spinning as it did.
6. Finally in the summer of 1964 near the village of Conklin in Broome County, a woman was tending to her kitchen work. Suddenly her two sons, ages 9 and 7, and three of their friends rushed in from outside, all out of breath. They all ask for glasses of water. When she asked why, they breathlessly told her it was for “the space man!” When later questioned about the space man, the boys were hesitant to talk. After must prodding, they described a small, human-like man in a black suit with strange insignia. He also wore a helmet with antennas. The children described a shiny craft parked out in the field. Later, an inspection of that area of the field found grass that had been crushed into a circle by a significant weight.
Black holes aren’t just terrifying objects of total obliteration — they’re also gross as hell. These behemoths have a strange tendency to yak up some the matter they seemingly crush under an ungodly amount of dense mass. They are one of the most mysterious phenomena in the universe. New observations from the European Southern Observatory’s Very Large Telescope (VLT) illustrate that the biggest bad boys, supermassive black holes, will spit up matter like their smaller brethren. But the messy aftermath might actually lead to formation of new stars.
About 600 million light-years away, there’s an ongoing collision of two galaxies jointly known as IRAS F23128-5919. At the center of the southern galaxy lies a supermassive black hole spitting up a ton of cosmic material. Using the MUSE and X-shooter tools on the VLT at the Paranal Observatory in Chile, scientists found that the outflow of galactic winds from the sheer force of the black hole is stirring up enough cosmic gas and dust to form new stars. This never-before-seen discovery, detailed in a new study published in Nature on Monday, has lead to a slew of new theories about SBHs, including discounting a few old ones.
“Supermassive black holes are a million times larger than classical accretion records,” Roberto Maiolino, an astronomer from the University of Cambridge and the lead author of the new paper, tells Inverse. “Until now, the main theory was that they were connected to destruction; in certain phases these winds are supposed to remove a large amount of material out of the galaxy and suppress the host galaxy.”
But, as Maiolino explains, these new findings show that while supermassive black holes can be the ultimate demise for galaxies, they also can form new stars. In the case of IRAS F23128-5919, these newborn stars are just tens of millions of years old. They also appear to be brighter and hotter than stars formed under regular conditions.
“The dynamic properties of stars produced in the violent and turbulent winds of a supermassive black hole are completely different than stars that were formed within a galaxy,” said Maiolino.
They also found that some of the new stars appear to be held in place by the gravitational pull of the black hole, while others are sent spiraling off into the dark abyss of the universe.
“In some parts of the galaxy the gravitational field is much stronger and in other places the force is weaker,” explains Maiolino. “Depending on where stars form they can have a different fate. So, the stars which form in the injected blast of a black hole very close to the center start circulating around the galaxy, becoming part of what we call the ‘bulge.’ Stars that form far away from the galaxy center achieve a lower force and can actually fly away and leave the galaxy altogether; they can be lost forever.”
“The black hole in the center of our Milky Way is dormant now, but we know it was active in the past and it probably produced similar winds that we are seeing in other galaxies,” Maiolino says. “We know this kind of activity isn’t continuous. [Supermassive black holes] have a large life cycle; they can have an inactive period that could last a few million years and they may be dormant for much longer and then have an active period again. They may have this kind of periodic effect several times.”
There is still much to learn about this new phenomena, but Maiolino and his team are eager to continue their exploration. When the James Webb Space Telescope, the Hubble Space Telescope’s successor, is launched and made operational in October 2018, they hope to find evidence of these active and dormant phases.
“It’s a new field, it’s difficult to assess how frequent it is among galaxies,” Maiolino says. “This can probably only be done with the James Webb Space Telescope, which will have the ability to probe these distant galaxies.”
NASA caught a glimpse of Jupiter on Monday, as its Juno orbiter passed the red planet at 4.52 a.m. EST. The spacecraft, moving past the planet for its fifth time, has been collecting data since it entered Jupiter’s orbit in July 2016, after lifting off from Florida’s Cape Canaveral launch complex in August 2011.
“This will be our fourth science pass — the fifth close flyby of Jupiter of the mission — and we are excited to see what new discoveries Juno will reveal,” Scott Bolton, principal investigator of Juno from the Southwest Research Institute in San Antonio, said in a statement released Friday. “Every time we get near Jupiter’s cloud tops, we learn new insights that help us understand this amazing giant planet.”
During the passing, Juno had its eight instruments switched on and collecting data from 2,700 miles above the clouds, moving at 129,000 miles per hour. In other orbits, the satellite has reached as low as 2,600 miles above the clouds.
The mission is aimed at learning more about Jupiter’s origins and structure. Probing below the clouds, the satellite is designed to find out more about the planet’s atmosphere and magnetosphere. So far, the team has discovered that Jupiter has complicated magnetic fields, and that the unique cloud tops extend well below the surface into the gas giant’s interior.
Each of the satellite’s five orbits last for 53 days, but NASA originally intended for only the first two orbits to last for that long. After that, the plan was to switch on Juno’s engines and move the satellite closer to Jupiter, meaning more frequent 14-day orbits that should lead to larger collections of data.
Unfortunately, during a check of the internal systems, the agency found that the helium check valves were taking several minutes to open when they should have taken just a few seconds.
“During a thorough review, we looked at multiple scenarios that would place Juno in a shorter-period orbit, but there was concern that another main engine burn could result in a less-than-desirable orbit,” said Rick Nybakken, Juno project manager at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California. “The bottom line is a burn represented a risk to completion of Juno’s science objectives.”
Instead of undertaking a risky firing that could have put the whole mission at risk, NASA decided to stay at the 53-day orbit levels. The agency has justified it by claiming that they will receive “bonus science” from the repeated passings, which is possibly true, but it’s not quite the exciting information the team could have collected from closerpassings.

Although at present Mars is very cold, dry, and has a very thin atmosphere, it was not always like this. As per scientists, Mars was once blessed with a habitable climate and thick atmosphere that could have allowed liquid water to exist.
NASA is now trying to give Mars its atmosphere back for colonizing the planet in the future!
In a presentation at the Planetary Science Vision 2050 Workshop in Washington DC, NASA scientists have proposed that deploying a giant magnetic shield into space between Mars and the sun could protect its atmosphere from solar wind. They consider that the launched magnetic shield could serve as a replacement for Mars’s own lost magnetosphere.
The researchers explained, “This situation then eliminates many of the solar wind erosion processes that occur with the planet’s ionosphere and upper atmosphere allowing the Martian atmosphere to grow in pressure and temperature over time. Much like Earth, an enhanced atmosphere would: allow larger landed mass of equipment to the surface, shield against most cosmic and solar particle radiation, extend the ability for oxygen extraction, and provide ‘open air’ green-houses to exist for plant production, just to name a few.”
It is a great concept, and in case scientists are successful in deploying a giant magnetic shield, then the dream of colonization on Mars would not be far away

‘Alien abduction victim’ claims extraterrestrials revealed the meaning of life to him - PART I
An alien abductee has come forward and publicly revealed the plan extraterrestrials have for humanity in the next few years. After being abducted by aliens for the last 17 years of his life, the anonymous abductee says he wants to share his experience with the public so they can learn the truth about extraterrestrials.
In an online post on a popular conspiracy forum, the alien abductee reveals:
How aliens are able to communicate via telepathy with eachother and humans
The secrets about Earth’s history hidden from us by our rulers
How the universe came into existence (it was NOT the Big Bang or ‘God’ according to these beings)
What the future for the human race holds
Full Disclosure: Revelations of an Extraterrestrial Encounter.
My name is [redacted]. I’m [redacted] years old and I’m going to let you know right away, there’s a whole lot to digest about who I am, why I’m here, and what I’ve gone through in my life.
The thoughts that will go through your head as you read this have kept me awake hundreds of sleepless nights in my life.
I’ve questioned my sanity many times over, but I assure you, in every way possible, I am quite sane.
I’m not endorsing this story, or saying it even really truly happened. I’m only saying I believe this happened to me.
I could be crazy. I could be getting used to spread distraction. I don’t know. I’m just going with what’s gone on in my head over forty years, and saying it like it is.
Just keep in mind If i was telling this for any other reason than a true love for this planet, I’d be telling it to a Hollywood agent or book publisher and charging you money to read it. I’m not.
We all have our reasons for being drawn to the esoteric. Mine was UFOS.
Not my interest in them, but their interest in me. It started when I was only 4 years old. And it’s gone on ever since.
My first experience was a face to face meeting with a strange little Being. We communicated by telepathy and that connection remains today.
It’s a one way kind of communication. I’ve asked a million questions but never really got an answer to any of them.
Well except for one I suppose. I guess she must be able to hear me. The one question I asked the most was answered. It just wasn’t the answer I wanted.
Naturally I wanted to know what was going on…and I always heard the same response. “When it’s time, you’ll know.”is
I’ve gone years with no interaction but she always comes back. Yes. The Being was female and quite motherly in her communication with me.
She tells me things. About myself and about them, and about this planet. And it’s history.
Seems I’ve been at this for quite some time too. I’m a very old soul. She’s recently told me a bunch of things that in all honesty, I already knew, sort of.
I know one thing for sure. Amongst other things, i’m a warrior through and through. That I didn’t need to be told. But just how much of a warrior, I had no idea.
Unfortunately having the heart of a lion only gets you so far. And for me, it’s never been far enough.
That’s why I’ve learned to fight with my mind this time. Even though I spent a lot of my life in a subculture of violence this time around, I see now I had to be there to unlearn the ways I’ve always handled my confrontations. In this life too, but more so in my past lives.
I really am tired of all this. It’s been long enough. Too many people have died thinking we could beat them (the elite force controlling the world) in a physical confrontation.
They didn’t start actually “abducting me” until I was 31 years old though. And I prefer to think of myself as “taken” not abducted.
For the last 17 years it’s been an on and off again thing. I’d just gone 5 years without any contact or communication incidents, but in Aug 2016, (like 4 months ago) things got very serious, very fast.
Life was as normal as I think it’s ever been for me. I was right where I wanted to be, and comfortable with everything my life was becoming. Mine has been a life of constant rebuilding and change.
I went to bed one Saturday night just like any other night. But Sunday morning was not anything like any Sunday I’d been through before.
I woke up and realized immediately what happened. I was freezing. And soaking wet. And I felt like I was in a dream. Have you ever been under anesthetic? Same feeling when waking up. It’s like coming back from, hmmm, i don’t know where, but It’s the telltale sign.
But this time there was more. I had a head full of ideas and an absolute NEED to search out and connect to people just like all of you.
And, she was back. Like never before. And she had a lot to say in the last three months. Wow!
What I’m going to tell you was revealed to me, a bit here, piece there, over my lifetime. It really never made much sense to me though, until now. Now I have the whole truth.
And I do apologize to the people I’ve been difficult with, but you can’t imagine the pressure I’m under with this.
It’s really, really hard to listen to theories I know are incomplete or distraction, while having no ability to present what I know until right now. I was told not to tell anyone.
So, before I go any further, I need you to understand something. Read this next line as many times as you need to.
We, aren’t what we’ve been taught to believe we are! Not at all. Nothing!
What I’m going to tell you may change your life. In what way is entirely up to you.
I see it one of three ways, you’ll hate me forever, you’ll embrace this and know me forever, or you’ll call me crazy.
The reality is there’s been some very big lies told. And I’m going to do my best to explain the who, want, when, where, and why that surround these secrets.
So here it is, the real story as I understand it.
This planet was not the result of a Big Bang or the creation of “God” as we understand Him. The Universe came to exist because of The One.
The One is neither alive or dead, male or female good nor bad. IT just is…
The One is responsible for creating all the framework which functions to provide an environment for everything to exist in.
IT created this planet, and all the other planets, stars, moons, and everything in between.
Unlike the story we were told, “God” does not work alone. The One had some help.
The One created several intelligent races of benevolent Aliens that function to serve The Universe. Like The One, they are Immortal and never die. They are tangible Beings though, just not in the same way we are.
These Aliens are the craftsmen tasked with maintaining the integrity of all The One had created.
Planet Earth was seeded with life by a race of immortal Aliens called Centaurians from a planet called Eden. It’s located in the Centauri star system.
And when I say life, I mean ALL of it. Especially us.
The Centaurians are part of the immortal workforce that service The Universe. They are scientists and geneticists. It was theiru job to seed life throughout The Universe.
There is one exception though. The sector where The Six Headed Beast ruled.
Using a master set of plant and animal DNA supplied by The One, The Centaurians genetically engineered a vast living library of life.
Earth was their seed bank and it was called The Garden of Eden. Easily it was the most beautiful of all the planets. The One had really done a wonderful job.
They used a process called gene splicing, and did this work in labs on Eden.
Each new plant or animal prototype they created was then taken to Earth where it was cultivated.
Not all planets have the same conditions or type of atmosphere. So it also had to be determined which species could exist in different places.
This planet was designed to support many different types of environments and climates that mimic conditions around the universe.
Once these new products were studied, logged, and samples were stored, they were distributed to the planets throughout the universe best suited for each species.
However, in the face of all The One had created, even IT was not perfect. The One had made only one mistake. But it was a big one.
I’m not going to even pretend I understand it. But in the beginning, when The One was the only thing in existence, IT became “lonely”.
To combat this problem, The One divided itself by 25% to create another, lesser version of itself.
This new Number Two later realized that’s exactly what it was. Lesser. The One could have split in half and made them equal, but IT didn’t.
And when The One finished what IT had set out to do, which was create the Universe, and the immortal work force to help complete it, Number Two took offence.
Number Two realized The One had provided no role whatsoever for IT to contribute to all that was created.
Upon realizing the sole purpose of IT’s existence, was to keep The One from becoming lonely again, Number Two decided to leave.
At the time, Number Two didn’t realize it, but the choice to leave, introduced some new things to The Universe. Conflict. And Free Will.
Number Two took up residence in a far off corner of The Universe. It didn’t take long to realize though, IT was all alone.
As The One had divided itself to solve the same problem, so too did Number Two.
But Number Two didn’t want to face the same dilemma, so IT divided into 6 equal individuals. And they quickly set out to develop this corner of The Universe into their very own version of what the rest of The Universe would be like.
The result was a galactic society of miscreants lead by what would come to be known as The Six Headed Beast.
The division into 6 individuals had corrupted key bits of knowledge and understanding from the consciousness of the whole.
This lost knowledge was the reason all the creatures that were created to reside on the planets in this sector, had no soul.
Some of these creatures were worse than others, but none of them could actually be considered good.
They are flesh and blood creatures who only live for a certain length of time and die one day.
We were created the way we were, with a soul, for a reason. The Centaurians wanted to create an intelligent worker who would live on Earth and be responsible for maintaining the integrity of The Garden of Eden.
Tending to this garden would be an extremely delicate, and sometimes dangerous program. They needed leverage to ensure compliance to the job.
Also, since free will and conflict had come into existence when Number Two left, it was decided that from this point forward, immortality would have to be earned.
So it was decided that a promise of immortality under certain conditions, would help motivate this creature called a human being, to serve its purpose to the best of its ability.
A unique approach that would allow human beings to exist as two separate halves of one entity, had been successfully designed by an amazing team of scientists on Eden.
And quickly this design and reasoning for it, was approved by The One.
One half of the human would exist on Eden. The other half would exist on Earth.
The two individual halves of the human being are connected by something called a soul.
Inside the body of each half of the humans, flows a pure form of energy that binds both parts to one another.
A telepathic connection that allowed the two parts to communicate back and forth was also a very useful feature for completing the work projects tasked to the humans.
The half which existed on Eden would work in the lab as a genetic scientist to create new life forms.
When these plants and animals were cultivated on Earth, the process would be conducted by the Earth halves of the scientists whose team had invented the specific species.
This way the scientist and the botanist or biologist could share information to ensure a well cared for and properly designed product was the end result of their efforts.
This telepathic connection was also a way to never forget home and in times of struggle, a voice of reason to offer advice. A friend, so no matter what, no human would ever be alone, like The One had once been.
You likely won’t believe me yet, but that voice in your head, your conscience, is actually what’s left of the telepathic connection to our counterpart on Eden.
Of course today we are raised to believe thinking anything other than “it’s your own voice” will get you locked up in a psych ward.
Big threats to protect big secrets. And big secrets are certainly being kept from us about how and why that connection was lost.
To become immortal, the humans had to live by guidelines and rules and show the intelligence, loyalty, and desire to be a productive, honest, contributing member of the Galactic Society they belonged to.
A series of tests, and lessons would be incorporated into their lives that would determine when they would be ready to achieve immortality.
On Earth everything living has an expiration date, meaning one day it dies. This applies to everything except for one thing, the human soul.
When a human died on Earth, the soul ascended to Eden for evaluation. If it was decided the soul was ready, the two halves would merge into one immortal being.
However, if it wasn’t ready, the soul would experience something called reincarnation where it was sent back to Earth in a new body.
The human would then encounter a more difficult path designed to address the issues that kept it from achieving immortality.
This complex two part creature would be the prototype for a whole new approach to the concept of being alive. If successful, humans could be placed all over the universe.
As The Centaurians hoped, the evolution of The Garden of Eden, and its new occupants, was a great success.
After nearly a hundred thousand years of evolution, only one major change was made to how this system would operate.
It was originally the plan to allow unlimited reincarnation and guaranteed immortality eventually. However, there were unforeseen issues that arose from that idealistic view.
The result was a decision to permit ten chances to get it right and earn the reward of immortality.
By limiting reincarnation to nine times, the decision to populate some of the other planets that had been seeded into life with humans, had passed the scrutiny of The One.
By the way, I told you which star system Eden exists in without feeling like I’m giving up a secret.
Unfortunately, there are people here on Earth right now searching for it, and they already know where they should be looking.
The Kepler telescope made a discovery this year not six months ago in August of 2016
There is one particular planet quite close to Earth. Like close enough where the technology here will allow a probe to make it there in the next 25 years or so.
It’s not Eden. But it’s one step closer. So they really need to be stopped before they get there.
As I said before, I’m an old soul. And I’ve tried more than once to stop those responsible for what I’m trying to tell you, during several of my past lives.
Obviously, I’ve never been on the successful side of any of the battles that have taken place in an attempt to gain control of our own destiny.
I’m sure you’ve realized something must have gone terribly wrong someplace along the line.
Earth is quite obviously not being used by The Centaurians as a living library anymore. It’s being exploited, polluted, and soon enough, will be destroyed.
If you don’t know, there are several tyrannical groups of very rich, very powerful, business men, political leaders and Church officials with questionable ties to each other.
They belong to groups such as The Illuminatii, The Roman Catholic Church, The British Monarchy, and The Freemasons to name a few.
It’s widely accepted that these Billionaire Boys Clubs are up not on the up and up and exist to serve ulterior motives.
They have created, implemented, and enforced a system of corruption, greed, control, and hostility for thousands of years.
The roots of these shady organizations have been traced back to the time of Jesus.
The last attempt to confront these corrupt, power hungry, tyrants was in the early 1300’s.
A very wealthy group called The Knights Templar, that was aligned with The Roman Catholic Church, had found out some extremely sensitive information about Jesus, and the Bible.
Having expressed concerns to a trusted government official about The Church withholding the secret knowledge, The Knights Templar were betrayed and for the most part, disbanded and killed brutally for going against The Pope.
And ever since then these elite tyrants have taken full advantage of the fear they instilled in anyone who may oppose them.
Their stranglehold on the resources and human lives on Planet Earth grows stronger every single day we choose to do nothing.
The Knights knew what I know. Unlike me, they never got the chance to tell though.
Once you know why, and what is at stake, you’ll understand why I’ve made it my choice to suggest we confront these men, end these lies, and try again to rid this planet from their control.
The elite tyrants who control us using money, work hand in hand with the ones who destroy some of us by taking our soul.
The Roman Catholic Church is the real controlling influence behind those running the world, enslaving mankind, and destroying this beautiful planet.
There is no one more powerful than the guy with the funny hat, The Pope. None that are human anyways.
The Pope is always chosen from a secret, and very long list of bloodlines that go back thousands of years to a time when giants roamed the Earth.
Yeah I just said that. But it’s gotta be said. And someone had to say it. And that’s always been my role. To sound the alarm.
But this time the call, MY call, will be heard. This time, the world is ready to hear it. YOU, are ready to hear it!
The age of information has brought a new dimension, one we have never had available before. If you haven’t realized it yet, she told me, IT’S TIME!
This time, we have the ability to UNITE World Wide!. And we will. And we are.
I can feel the soul of every warrior who ever lived and died at the hands of The Elite. All of them. They’re all here.
Some already know it, most don’t, but you all will. The universe will not let you rest until you accept the responsibility of fixing what we have ALWAYS allowed them to do to us.
The Elite aren’t exactly like us in case you haven’t noticed. There is an empty, void, hole in all of “them”.
The world really is an US vs THEM situation.
You may believe “we are all one” and some spiritual awakening is on the horizon, but please, know this: There are TWO different SPECIES living together here on earth. Humans. And Half Breeds.
And no, they are not shape shifting reptilians. In all ways they are identical to us, except for one thing.
They don’t have a soul!
When they die, they are dead. That’s it. No more. They are manufactured.
These soulless shells i’m talking about are The Elite. And they know what they are. Predators. Nasty, sick, twisted, Predators.
There is another group of people who also suffer an impairment of their soul but they have no idea anything is even wrong with them.
At least they have a soul, even if it has been shut right off. As long as it’s there, all hope is not lost.
It’s imperative if we want to experience any kind of freedom again, we begin working together. All men. All for One Cause. One World United.
United, we can move forward into a new Age of Enlightenment.
United, we can be free from all the pain that’s been our lives here on planet Earth.
It will not be easy. But nothing good ever is. Just be certain, if we continue to fall for the tactics that keep us divided, once again, we will fall short. Divide and Conquer will defeat us like it has before in past lives.
The Elite have slowly divided the entire world into divisions so small, they feel confident that it’s just not possible for us to lay aside our differences or seek a new perspective on our beliefs.
I’m hoping that deep down inside though, you feel it! You’ve always felt it. You probably didn’t understand that feeling was your other half calling out to you. And your home. Eden. In all ways possible, they both need you now, more than ever.
For some of us, the connection to our other half is starting to be established once more. I’ll explain why later.
It’s the ones caught deep in this web of lies I worry about though. The ones with the soul affliction.
Things on Eden have taken a very long time to fully recover from the Annunaki Invasion.
The reason is the soul affliction that has taken hold here on Earth lately, has nearly crippled the population on Eden.
The half of the human that’s born and exists on Eden, that’s attached to the people on Earth commonly referred to as Sheeple, (people who can’t see anything at all wrong with how the world operates) are basically handicapped.
They don’t contribute to the workforce, in fact, they take away from it, as they require constant care and supervision.
Despite all that has changed since humans came into existence, the soul still continues to develop properly and in unison with its Counterpart on Eden.
The changes to the minds of the humans on Earth however, somehow have caused the autism -like affliction of the mind running rampant on Eden.
So I’m here on a mission. I’m here to wake you up to what you used to be, to what you are.
And what you need to be, if we ever want to free ourselves from this nightmare we’ve all been tricked into living.
I guess tricked isn’t the best choice of words either. They didn’t trick us, they genetically modified us is what they did.
And what I’m about to tell you now, is where things get intense.
What you think you know about the history of earth and its many different inhabitants, are all lies. And it’s the job of the church, to protect those lies.
And the reward from protecting those lies, goes to the enforcers of the lie. The Illuminati. The Freemasons. The Elite.
Their reward is your life of servitude! And every man, woman and child belongs to them whether you admit it, or not.
Because the elite know they are soulless shells of what we are, they hate us.
Once I explain what they are lying about, and how far they’ve gone to protect the lie, you’ll understand just how much hate for us they hold.
The only other things that interest them are material riches and the thrill of feeling somehow superior as they treat us like garbage in a ruthless pursuit of the Almighty Dollar.
And we allow it because deep down we feel like our souls will live on regardless.
But that was the old way. Soon you will realize how, like me, you’ve avoided the trap and reincarnated here, over and over again.
Until we get this done, we will continue stuck in this loop, doomed to watch history repeat itself again and again.
And I’m going to tell you why.
There was an invasion on Eden, and they lost. The Centaurians are peaceful scientists, not warriors.
The Annunaki, a race of soulless creatures from the far corner of The Universe developed by The Six Headed Beast had come seeking knowledge.
They required technology to save the atmosphere of the planet they came from, Nibiru.
But Eden refused to help them. They were not in the business of cooperating with any of the soulless abominations created by The Six Headed Beast.
And the Annunaki replied in force. In the process of taking what they came for, they also discovered the location of Earth.
They left Eden in near ruins, and made off with some very sensitive, essential information about all life, and about Planet Earth in particular.
The Annunaki first arrived on planet Earth during a cleansing period.
Once all of the different species were properly sampled and classified, or if circumstances required it, the scientists in charge would initiate a cleansing. The eradication of the old, to usher in the new.
The idea being to repeat the same process with new varieties of plants and animals, as they were developed and created on Eden.
This particular ice-age was also to repair a structural issue with the drainage system. A series of massive trenches and gullies were needed and the only thing powerful enough to dig them were migrating glaciers.
The humans all relocated to Africa during that time, moved by ships sent from Eden.
Unfortunately this relocation turned out to be the very thing that gave full advantage to the Annunaki.
The Annunaki were quite pleased with initial test samples they took. This planet was rich with monoatomic gold just as the stolen information from Eden had stated.
The information from Eden provided them with the formula used to create, or repair, an atmosphere. Monoatomic gold is the key ingredient. And they needed a lot.
The next thing the Annunaki did was set in motion a chain of events which accelerated the melting process.
There was a large area though where life was thriving. Here The Annunaki found a creature they hoped could be used as workers for the massive job of mining the Earth. They had discovered humans.
However, these creatures were quite different than anything The Annunaki had ever encountered. They seemed intelligent enough, but they were impossible to deal with.
Nothing, not fear, not pain, not even watching their friends die would sway them to what The Annunaki wanted them to do.
It was almost like these humans had one purpose and couldn’t do anything else even if they wanted.
But it was love for their home and an outright refusal to damage, destroy, alter, or manipulate the Earth at The Annunaki’s request that kept them from conforming.
The Annunaki even tried, unsuccessfully, claiming they were the ones who created the humans.
However, at that time The Annunaki were unaware of the connection the humans had to their other half back on Eden. The humans knew exactly who had arrived.
The Annunaki were in fact, very intelligent creatures however. A series of genetic manipulations performed on the male humans would solve the problem, or so it was believed.
One by one, the male humans were captured and injected with a DNA upgrade that would eventually change the fate of the inhabitants of The Garden of Eden. It would just be a matter of time.
The Annunaki, having completed the genetic tampering, prepared to leave. They needed to give the melting process of the ice covered planet time to do its thing.
A small team was assembled and would remain on Earth to manage and maintain the breeding process of the humans.
This task was put into the hands of a top scientist named Enki.
Enki was a powerful member of the upper echelon of Annunaki hierarchy.
He was very interested in studying the progress on the rate of change in these creatures.
The Annunaki had an amazing gift bestowed by The Six Headed Beast which created them. They had the power to shape shift, or transform into whatever they needed to be. So they took on human form.
Enki stood among the humans and watched as the other Annunaki boarded their ship and left Earth.
At that point the changes to the human mind had not taken over yet, and as the ship left, a legend was born about the ones who came from the sky in black clouds that burned in the sky.
And in telling this legend, the first of the changes began to materialize in the hearts and minds of the recently injected men, as fear crept in and filled them with a brand new perspective on life.
This new emotion clashed heavily with the very limited emotional database humans had been living with up to this point.
It only took a few generations of reproduction for Enki to realize something had gone wrong though.
By this stage there should have been significant changes in the way this creatures mind worked. But the change was minimal at best.
These creatures were learning to simply adapt, and somehow they retained the sense of self worth they had always enjoyed.
Frustrated, Enki began a series of experiments on his modified humans. What he discovered, shocked, and amazed him
In ways he could not understand, it appeared this creature was in fact, two creatures.
Enki began to decipher a series of files that were part of his spoils of war from the invasion of Eden. And what he learned, he could not believe.
These creatures had something called a soul. Something he had never heard of. Something that made these creatures immortal. As far as Enki knew, only The Six Headed Beast was immortal. More than anything, he wanted that! In fact, Enki became obsessed with the idea of living forever.
So obsessed, he entirely forgot why he had attempted to change the humans in the first place.
All that mattered was finding a way to implant or replicate one of these souls into himself.
Experiment after experiment failed. And as these further modified humans got released back among the others, the more damaged the integrity of the humans became.
After several more generations, significant changes could be seen.
So much so that they began to change in their physical appearance over time, not only mentally as the modification was initially supposed to be.
The most significant change was the colour of some of the creatures skin. There seemed to be several distinct skin tones and physical attributes appearing.
Though Enki had yet to discover the secret of the soul, he was forced to turn his attention back to creating a workforce for the mining operation.
He was rather impressed with one particular group that stood out from the others. It appeared this group was going to be the dominant one.
This dominant version of a human had changed almost entirely in colour.
It began with deep dark brown skin like they all had in the beginning.
But now it had transformed to become pale and light coloured, very much like Enki himself.
Up till this point Enki and his crew had lived unnoticed among the humans. But it was time for a change.
It was now about 190,000 Earth years since the Annunaki had left in their flying spaceship leaving Enki and his crew behind.
Enki and his kind lived to be about 360,000 years old in Earth terms. Which meant if he was going to complete the actual mission he was here for, he would have to find success soon. His age was creeping up on him.
The ice sheets that had once covered the Earth had been greatly diminished by this time. And the redistribution of the humans could begin.
Enki had sent for The Annunaki to return. The first mission was to gather all the humans of each kind based on their skin colour.
Then, each “race” was strategically dispersed around the world to the locations that were no longer inhospitable.
There were 4 distinct races based solely on skin tone. Dark brown, light brown, yellow, and white.
The first three races were relocated in their entirety and kept together. The white race however was divided into three groups.
These smaller groups of white humans were each placed to live with and among the other 3 races.
And just as Enki had envisioned, the white humans did whatever they had to do so they would find themselves in a position of authority.
It didn’t take long, and with the help of the white humans, the mining operations to amass monoatomic gold, were finally underway.
Turning his attention back to the humans, it quickly became clear to Enki there was no way to actually detect the soul while it was inside the body of the human beings.
It frustrated Enki to no end. He had gone so far as to take 13 human wives and father a large amount of children, half human, half Annunaki.
His intention was that if he could not achieve immortality, he could produce children that could.
However, it was this phase of experimentation that nearly took Enki from a distinguished scientist to an obsessed maniac.
There was no way to know if his experiments worked. The soul was no more detectable in his children, than in humans. Whether he had been successful or not, Enki would never know. At this point, he was prepared to give up.
The mining operations were nearly completed, and soon The Annunaki would leave Earth forever.
It was at this time however that Enki made his most crucial discovery.
By chance, he stumbled across some undiscovered information stolen from Eden. Vital information about the soul.
He learned the soul was, in fact, a tangible item. It could only be detected and seen after the death of the human host.
It appeared that as it traversed The Universe on the trip back to Eden, the soul became vulnerable.
And that’s when everything changed. Enki decided he was going to stay.
The rest of The Annunaki thought it was a strange request Enki made, but decided it was his choice to make in the end.
They packed up their ship, and left. Unknown to Enki, another member of their ranks was still on Earth with him.
Having burnt every bridge with his superiors during arguments over the mining expedition, Marduk was banished to Earth, an outcast no longer wanted among his own kind.
Also, unlike Enki, Marduk was open about his relations with human women. Something very much considered to be unacceptable.
It didn’t take Enki long to create a plan to confuse, distract, manipulate and erase any lingering recognition these humans may have about their soul and its purpose.
Enki didn’t want the knowledge of who they were, why they were on Earth, and what the purpose of the soul was, creeping back into the minds of men. He would give them a new, and totally different, understanding to live by.
It was the act of leaving The One, which Number Two had done in the early years of creation, that gave all creatures free will.
Free will would, in the eyes of Enki, become the most favourable of gifts bestowed on creation by The Six Headed Beast.
And Enki was prepared to take full advantage of many of the gifts he possessed if it meant immortality.
The children of Enki were a powerful group. They had no soul, but they did have some of the strengths that made Enki such a powerful creature.
One such quality they acquired was a lifespan much greater than a human. On average, these children would roam the Earth for up to 5000 years.
Another, was their size and strength. The males in particular reached heights of 10 feet, weighed nearly 800 pounds and had the strength of 10 men.
The reaction of the population towards these massive creatures, who otherwise resembled humans, is what gave Enki the idea which ultimately resulted in our current state of world affairs today.
Enki had his children roam the earth in search of the worst human beings alive.
It was now apparent just how wrong some of Enki’s experiments had gone. Murdereres, rapists, thieves, and tyrants made up a decent part of the population.
When they found these offenders, Enki’s children made an example out of them and slaughtered them all in public settings.
They then told the remaining humans the type of behaviour these bad humans displayed was against what they were willing to accept from this point on.
The children of Enki claimed their role as Gods among men. They presented their absent father as The One, creator of Heaven and Earth. And promised anyone who crossed them or their father, would meet the same fate as the many men they had recently slaughtered.
The humans began to cower in fear at the sight of these massive half humans. And they would go to any length to secure the favour of these Gods if they could.
The reason Enki was going to such great lengths to deceive the humans, should be of GREAT concern to every human alive.
Enki had been successful in his attempts to capture a human soul as it ascended to Eden.
What he learned from this was, and still is, a very frightening prospect which affects us as human beings to this very day.
Enki had found a way to harness, drain, and absorb the unique type of energy the human soul contained, into his own system.
And by doing so had secured a lesser version of the immortality he had sacrificed so much of his sanity to while searching for the secrets to living forever.
All he needed was an endless supply of human souls to drain and absorb. Consume.
For as long as he can secure a steady supply of human souls, ENKI WILL NOT DIE. He is very much alive and hiding on Earth. Though I don’t know, my guess is he is safely hidden in a secret room deep down below The Vatican.

In their true form, the Annunaki were not small creatures. Enki was a foot taller and 100 pounds heavier than the largest and most powerful of his children, Zeus.
In his full Annunaki dress uniform and in his true physical form, Enki presented himself to the occupants of Earth.
The weapons of mass destruction he possessed, gave credence to the claim he made to the population in each location he appeared as he demonstrated his powers for emphasis.
Region by region Enki visited all the occupied territories around the world in support of what his children had recently established. The worlds very first religion.
Enki was determined to be their God. Their creator and judge. And ruler of all.
The concept took its place immediately in the minds of the population of earth. To disrespect The One or his many children, meant certain doom.
But serving them with your life, and living to please The One meant great rewards here on Earth. And also in the after-life.
Enki painted a beautiful picture to the humans of eternal life with him. He explained the nature of the Human soul and how it was a part of the “human experience” that could live forever as a guest in his kingdom.
Next, he explained the nature of free will. To gain entry to his kingdom called Heaven, a conscious desire had to be spoken aloud expressing a request to exist there with him.
The humans were forced to drop to their knees in front of Enki . He wanted a pledge, on their life, to abide by the rules he had created for them to live by.
Enki had made some reasonable requests, and the humans were happy to learn that outwardly, Enki appeared to be a fair, and decent giant of a man-god.
Like their father, the children of Enki took human lovers. By the time the first of Enki’s children had grown old and died, his family had grown to be enormous.
By the 5th generation of breeding with humans, Enki’s grandchildren had taken on the human form and were indistinguishable from the actual humans.
Under Enki’s guidance his grandchildren would tighten the hold on humans by introducing governments and the church to all of mankind. Each with its own design to control how the humans lived their lives.
The world was separated into manageable sized sections called countries. Borders were drawn, and several kingdoms established within each country.
The residents of these countries were then divided further to ensure they remained a totally conquered society that would have no hope to ever escape this enslavement.
New churches were allowed to rise up. And new religions. People were all of a sudden concerned with skin color, heritage, and financial status. Anything the Kings could use to divide people, they used.
It was simple, the only thing that could ever cause problems was numbers created by Unity.
The most influential of Enki’s extended family were put in positions of power to rule over the entirety of each country. Kings.
A hierarchy of control over all the humans was put in place. All to secure Enki’s place at the top of it all. The One.
Enki also arranged every marriage that ever happened in his family. He was very insistent certain guidelines be followed to ensure the bloodline his future grandchildren were born into, stayed pure.
And to this day, though we don’t realize or accept it, the descendants of Enki’s children continue to hold control of the world. And they still have no souls.
As observant, intelligent, and cautious as Enki was, it turned out he wasn’t quite as secretive as he thought himself to be. His obsession with the soul had made him careless.
Much to his surprise, he realized Marduk had been left behind and was hiding in plain sight, living on Earth in human form.
And, he had discovered why Enki had gone to such extremes creating this elaborate system of control over the humans.
Being left behind, Marduk was angry. And he hated this planet. He was looking for a way to seek revenge on the human race. Like most deviant minds, he blamed all things, except himself and his lust for human women, for all of his problems.
When Marduk discovered the secret Enki was keeping, he documented everything, including how Enki was taking credit for all creation and falsely claiming to be The One.
Marduk used the evidence he had gathered to blackmail Enki into providing him access to the technology so he could consume souls and become immortal as well.
As miserable, angry, and pissed off at the world as Marduk was, there was no surprise in the way he chose to win possession of the souls he meant to acquire.
He played on the worst of the human traits that had developed in the unfortunate victims of Enki’s obsession with genetic manipulation.
Traits like greed, anger, jealousy and corruption were Marduk’s signature approach.
He would provide material riches such as money, gold, precious gems, and even sultry women. Once his intended victim became obsessed, he would make a trade. A life of gluttony, control and power, for simply agreeing to spend eternity with him in the afterlife.
Marduk painted his own picture of an awesome place to spend eternity, which also would attract it’s fair share of human’s.
Like Enki, Marduk had succumbed to the sex appeal of the women of earth. He had a large family of part human, part Annunaki children and grandchildren just like Enki
He brought them all together. But rather than operate like Enki and create an opposing faction of towns and cities of their own, Marduk decided his approach would consist of infiltrating and corrupting the system of control Enki had established, from the inside out.
In response Enki had the church add a story that told of a fate worse than death for those who would take up sides with Marduk.
To join with Marduk meant your soul would burn and be tortured forever in a truly evil, sick place called Hell.
And just as this battle for human souls really got going in full swing, it came to a sudden stop.
In a stunning display of IT’s intense capability, The One appeared suddenly out of thin air.
In the next instant, swooping from the sky, came a small fleet of spacecraft which landed very close to where The One now stood.
From inside these crafts a group of representatives from Eden stepped foot on the soil of Earth for the first time in well over a hundred thousand years.
Sadness turned quickly to anger as what they saw around them sunk in. They wanted their planet back.
But with something as complicated as The One mediating the situation, it would not be as simple as forcing the Annunaki out.
The One saw opportunity for a test of strength between the soulless creation of The Six Headed Beast and his very own creation, the residents of Eden.
It was the humans The One wanted put to the test. IT had approved the original design of human beings, but now had some serious doubt about the integrity of this mutated creature that was really nothing like it had started out to be.
There were great concerns about gifting immortality to such an unstable life form even if they did have to earn it.
So, to ensure these humans were put to the test, The One decided that the Annunaki would no longer be allowed to reveal themselves in the flesh to humans.
Both Enki and Marduk would have to go into permanent hiding or leave earth, it was up to them.
The residents of Eden were given the same restrictions. They were not permitted to blatantly land in the town center and show themselves to the residents of Earth.
They had to find a way for the humans to see what was happening for the world to end up going from what it was, to what it is now, today, here in 2016.
Enki was quick to approach Marduk with a truce. Considering all that was at stake, the two opposing Annunaki warriors decided to join forces and unite their families.
The One had only asked Enki and Marduk to leave. Their families were permitted to stay on Earth. They had no souls so were of no interest to The One.
At this point Marduk went into hiding. Enki, on the other hand, used his ability to shape shift one last time, as he too disappeared from the face of the earth never to be seen in his true form again.
Enki transformed himself into a fertilized embryo in the womb of a descendant of his own family, a young woman named Mary.
Nine months later Enki was born into the world as a human baby. A baby with no soul of its own. A baby named Jesus. A baby that would forever enslave mankind and provide himself, and Marduk an everlasting supply of souls!
At least that was the plan the two Annunaki had come up with after being confronted by The One.
The Centaurians were also a smart bunch. But this type of mental warfare was not their strong suit. The Annunaki had the advantage since deceit seemed to be the spirit of this contest.
They were not without some tricks and secrets.of their own. The residents of Eden had began abducting humans a couple hundred years ago. They hoped the process of reversing the genetic manipulations that Enki had performed could be discovered.,
It turned out to be impossible. Much of what Enki had done was now a permanent part of human life.
Regardless, they had a plan B. And once more the humans were subjected to further genetic modifications.
It was a tricky process. The human host had to physically die. Then their soul was captured and manipulated.
A jolt of electricity was used to bring the human back to life. And that was it. The altered soul returned to the body. The human was released back to where it was taken from, unharmed.
This method wasn’t the quick fix needed, but in the long run, it would be more effective.
This addition to the soul didn’t change the person who received the upgrade. It was designed to create change in the offspring of the recipients.
It was a process that would take a very long time, but it would eventually produce some very different humans.
They would look the same as everyone else, but their hearts, and minds would be far more in tune with the needs of Mother Earth and her occupants.
And the best case scenario would result in the reestablishment of the telepathic connection of the two halves of which the authentic humans had shared.
And in the early part of the 1900’s, the very first Indigo Soul arrived on Earth, a quirky Australian man named Errol Flynn.
The long awaited results started to trickle in, until the late 1960’s when the first main wave of Indigo Souls were born into this world. And every year since the numbers have grown.
As Indigo Souls matured and began having children of their own, the Crystal children began to arrive.
The Crystal children are to be witness to a great change. It’s their duty and role to document what takes place.
They will use the knowledge of their journey to create a better way of life for the future.
Never again will people suffer the fate the human population has endured so far at the hands of Enki and Marduk.
The union between the children of Enki and Marduk was very powerful. And very corrupt.
For almost 2000 years they have worked hand in hand to ensure the secrets and lies of the past stay buried.
The church knows all the lies. It’s their role to protect Marduk and Enki and keep them alive by ensuring a steady stream of our souls arrive to be consumed.
It was also a key component of the plan to ensure that the world never finds out how two Annunaki madmen fooled the world with the story about Jesus and Lucifer to enslave the world.
If you haven’t caught on, there is only one way to win back the Garden of Eden.
Enki and Marduk have exceeded their lifespan and are vulnerable. The source of their immortality, our souls, is all that is keeping them alive. A recent surge in spirituality, and atheism has weakened them.
The Pope is above all. He commands the legion of soulless tyrants who have taken over the world. They have crafted a web of deceit and corruption in the never ending lust for power and control of the entire planet.
And in doing so, they have enslaved us all. We are bound to them in several ways, the most powerful way is something called the monetary system. The Almighty Dollar.
Value is placed on a worthless object, a simple piece of paper for example.
That object is then provided in great quantity to most anyone with the ability to repay what was borrowed.
By charging a substantial fee for such a loan, these tyrants in control of the monetary system are making a huge profit at our expense for doing absolutely nothing.
They have found a way to control every aspect of our lives. They control food production, food quality and food distribution.
They control energy production and distribution. They control access to water. Healthcare. Education and a whole long list of other essential services. If a dollar of profit can be made, they have found the way to make it.
And they have introduced a massive array of distractions which draw our attention away from everything they do, TV being one of the most potent distractions of them all.
War is another distraction and the profit earned is 10x the return of any investment they would ever allow us to make.
The value of weapons of war are greatly over inflated. The Elite own factories that produce these weapons. Then governments all over the world purchase these weapons using government funding.
Of course it means there will always be a reason for war. And these nasty, sick, monsters have about sucked the world dry of financial security. Money not only keeps us enslaved, it’s the perfect distraction as well.
These distractions serve to create an atmosphere of confusion about, and detachment from, the present moment.
In case it may have slipped past you, the present moment is all we have.
Though their system of time keeping lends a hand to distract you from the fact that time doesn’t exist. It is ALWAYS, right now!
Right now is the time to face these liars. Right now is the time to walk away from their churches, their beliefs,, their laws, their banks, their corporations that monopolize the food industry and their set of principals which guide our entire lives.
Right now it’s time to end this nightmare of illusion and deceit.
