    MAKER VAN NIBIRU GRAANCIRKEL ONTDEKT? ( VIDEO)

    Al in 1994 joegen helikopters van het Britse leger op UFO’s op de plek waar enkele dagen geleden een bijzondere graancirkel werd aangetroffen. 

    Dit alles gebeurt in het Engelse graafschap Wiltshire en daar komt nu ook één van de meest spectaculaire UFO opnames van dit jaar vandaan. 



    We schreven gisteren een artikel over een bijzondere graancirkel die was gemaakt in het Engelse graafschap Wiltshire.

    Wiltshire (vaak afgekort tot Wilts) is een ceremonieel graafschap in het zuidwesten van Engeland, met Trowbridge als administratief centrum. Het grenst aan de graafschappen Somerset in het westen, Dorset en Hampshire in het zuiden, Gloucestershire in het noorden en Oxfordshire en Berkshire in het oosten. Inclusief de unitary authority van Swindon omvat het graafschap 3.476 km². Het landschap van Wiltshire wordt gekenmerkt door open vlakten met krijtheuvels en brede valleien. De laagvlakte van de Salisbury Plains is beroemd vanwege het megalithisch monument Stonehenge. 

    Met een monument als Stonehenge in Wiltshire weet je dat je te maken hebt met een bijzondere plek, waar ook al voor onze bekende geschiedenis buitenaardse bezoekers kwamen. 

    Wanneer we voor nu even de onzinnige theorie van mannen met plankjes onder de voeten die complexe graancirkels maken binnen een paar minuten midden in de nacht omdat ze dat leuk vinden, buiten beschouwing laten, dan zijn deze graancirkels nog steeds een raadsel. 

    Een verklaring voor die cirkels is misschien te vinden in misschien wel één van de meest mooie UFO waarnemingen van de laatste tijd. 

    Enkele dagen nadat de graancirkel waar wij over schreven is gemaakt, werd een bizarre combinaties van UFO’s gefilmdin Wiltshire, de plek van de graancirkel.

    De bewegende beelden volgen hierna en wanneer je dit ziet, dan kan je bijna niet anders dan dit in verband brengen met de graancirkel(s). 

    Verschillende mensen hebben ondertussen de beelden bekeken en niemand heeft tot nu kunnen vaststellen dat ze niet echt zouden zijn. 

     

    De plek in Wiltshire waar de graancirkel verscheen, kwam ook jaren geleden al in het nieuws toen Britse legerhelikopters op die plek jacht maakten op een vergelijkbare UFO en daarnaast probeerden nieuwsgierige mensen op een afstand te houden.

    UFO CLAIMS ON THE RISE AS SKY CLEARS, WEATHER WARMS UP

    It is currently peak season at the UFO hotline in the Netherlands. Reports of UFOs increase every year when the weather warms up and skies clear in the country.

    "The days are long, people are outside a lot and then you always see a peak in the number of UFO sightings", Alex Griffioen, the manager of the hotline, said to NOS. "For the vast majority of these reports there is a very simple explanation, but for 1 in 100 there's really something crazy going on." 

    A video posted online showing a white light slowly pulling over Ouderkerk, turned out to be a plane, for example. Some others are harder to explain. Such as a video filmed above Arnhem that shows three flying objects. They seem to be balloons, gradually disappearing into the sky, until one suddenly makes a sharp turn and shoots left.

    Since the hotline was established in 2011, over 5 thousand UFO sightings were reported. That comes down to about 70 per month. Most of the reports involve strange lights, like white or colored spheres, spots and stripes. Sometimes it involves an object moving in an unusual way. The sightings are all discussed on a forum.

    "It's a pity that this subject is always placed in the fantasy corner, along with crop circles and chemtrials and such. We're just trying to look at it seriously. It's a phenomenon observed by pilots and other very reliable, sensible people", Griffioen said to NOS. 

    He also has some tips for anyone spotting a UFO in the future. "It's useful to download two aps that answer a lot of questions: Skywalk lets you see the position of stars and planets. Flightradar shows the planes that come over." Try to take a clear picture. And if you record a video, make sure you have a fixed reference point in the frame.

    Astronomers Still Can't Rule Out SETI's Wow!' Signal

    '

    I cover over-the-horizon technology, aerospace and astronomy. 

    Nearly four decades after it was received, astronomers still can’t say with 100% certainty that the ‘Wow!’ signal was not an interstellar radio beacon from some far-flung extraterrestrial civilization. But the signal --- which got the Wow! moniker after an astronomer first scribbled those letters in the margins of the incoming data --- was never reacquired.

    Even so, Bob Dixon, Ohio State University’s (SETI) Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence program director at the time, once told me that the signal had to have at least originated at distance beyond the Moon.

    The Milky Way and the constellation of Sagittarius.

    What is known is that the signal was received just after 11 PM local time on August 15, 1977, at OSU’s now defunct Big Ear Radio Observatory. Its position on the sky came from the direction of the star cluster M55 in the constellation of Sagittarius. Yet more importantly, it closely-matched the narrow emission line of hydrogen at 1420 megahertz , a radio-quiet spot long touted as a potential interstellar hailing frequency for E.T. civilizations. And at the time, it was also the strongest such SETI (Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence) candidate signal ever seen.

    “So, ‘Wow!’ was appropriate,” Dan Werthimer, chief scientist at the University of California at Berkeley’s SETI program, told me. But he says it would be more convincing if the signal had appeared one after another along the Big Ear’s two different radio observing beams.

    That, says Werthimer, would be more of an indication that it was an artificial radio beacon from an interstellar point source. But we occasionally see Radio Frequency Interference (RFI) that's modulated in just the right way that makes it look like it is consistent with a distant point source, says Werthimer. But as he emphasizes, if the signal were really from E.T. and was in the telescope’s observing sights for at least a few minutes, the source of the signal should have moved from one beam into the other.

    “It didn't,” said Werthimer. “So, I'm 99% confident that the signal the OSU guys saw was RFI.”

    Still, there’s another possibility and that is that the signal did originate from beyond the moon, but was produced by two active comets orbiting within our solar system. That is, within the vicinity of the ‘Wow!’ signal’s position on the sky.

    A 2015 paper published by The Washington Academy of Sciences proposed that during that summer of 1977, comets 266P/Christensen and P/2008 Y2 (Gibbs) “were transiting in the neighborhood of the Chi Sagittarii star group” and produced by a large hydrogen cloud around their nucleus. Because the frequency for the ‘Wow!’ signal fell close to the radio emission for hydrogen, the paper noted that these local cometary hydrogen clouds would be strong candidates as the signal’s source.

    The comet hypothesis sounds somewhat plausible, but I still don’t buy it. If this cometary phenomena were at all statistically frequent, researchers would likely have picked up something similar over the last 50 years. And to my knowledge, this is the first time that anyone has argued that such narrowband emission is from a comet.

    My personal best guess is that the signal was not RFI. But more likely, it was the product of some very distant or unusual and/or poorly-understood astrophysical phenomenon.

    That’s not to say that E.T. isn’t out there somewhere. But the likelihood that we would only receive a lone radio beacon, that’s never repeated and could never be reacquired, also seems implausible.

    Most people can live with the fact that there may be no one out there. Some prefer the notion that we are the ultimate undiscovered country in a cosmos teeming with intelligent life. But few like the idea that we narrowly missed E.T.’s one-off phone call.

    Werthimer, however, says either the ‘Wow!’ signal’s rise and fall in strength was actually intrinsic to the signal, in which case he says it would have to be RFI. Or if the signal were from a distant source, he says, then it would be constant in power and its rise and fall in strength would be due to Earth’s rotation.

    The remote possibility that it’s the real thing is what makes the ‘Wow!’ signal so haunting . You can dismiss it as Radio Frequency Interference (RFI) until the cows come home. But as Werthimer himself reluctantly acknowledged: “We can't rule out E.T.”

    Roswell Deputy Sheriff: 'I saw four dead aliens and 100ft flying saucer at UFO crash site'

    A FORMER deputy sheriff claimed to have seen a "flying saucer" and "dead aliens" at an alleged UFO crash site in Roswell, New Mexico, in 1947, it has emerged.

    The testimony of Charles H Forgus of Big Springs in Howard County, Texas, is the latest to surface from a person who claims an alien space craft, and not a top-secret US-launched balloon, came down in the desert around the town nearly 70 years ago.

    Roswell has been at the heart of the UFO scene since in July 1947 the military sensationally announced in a press release it had found the remains of a crashed flying saucer in the desert nearby.

    But the following day it retracted the statement, saying it was in fact a damaged US Air Force air balloon.

    Witnesses later came forward to say there had been alien bodies within the "crashed craft", which along with the wreckage were then taken to a mysterious top-secret military base.

    There have been claims and counter claims, including that the bodies were crash test dummies and it had been a top-secret balloon spying on the Russians.

    All the confusion means it is one of the world's biggest conspiracy theories to this day.

    Mr Forgus' account is revealed in the new book UFOs Today: 70 Years of Lies, Disinformation and Government Cover-Up by Dr Irena Scott, which is published by Flying Disk Press tomorrow, June 1.

    He was interviewed, aged 81, in 1999, but the account appears to have lain buried until now, due to copyright issues according to Flying Disk Press publisher Phillip Mantle.

    Mr Forgus claimed to have been driving with an unnamed sheriff on the night of the alleged crash in July 1947, from Texas to Roswell to pick up a prisoner, when details of the incident "came over on the police radio".

    He was interviewed in 1999 by Los Angeles private investigator Deanna Bever, who was looking into Roswell, and another interviewer whose initials are only given as LR.

    Dr Scott said in the book: "Unlike other eyewitness accounts where few people actually reported seeing bodies, this witness reported seeing the craft and the bodies in a crash that appeared significant enough to report."

    He told of a perfectly round saucer being crashed in a canyon, after it appeared to have hit a "side wall".

    Charles Forgus and his wife in 1985.

    Dr Scott wrote: "He thought there are about four beings, around five feet tall with large eyes and feet like ours. 

    "Their skin was brownish and he didn’t see any blood. Their bodies were being picked up by a lift attached to a crane and swung into a truck.

    "He said there were about three or four hundred military people there; he didn’t know from which branch but said they were not Air Force. 

    "He and the sheriff watched for a while and the military people saw them.

    "Later they were told to leave. 

    "He said that a government person came around to talk to him later, but he told him to shut up and go away."

    The book has been written using portions of a rough transcript of a video tape of the interview.

    Mr Forgus said: "What I seen of him looked just like the one we see on television, with big eyes.

    "There was a big round thing in the canyon. It was about 100 feet across. 

    "They put that on a truck and hauled it away. They wouldn’t let us get very close to it either."

    The testimony has met with doubters already.

    In a blog post on website theufochronicles.com Roswell UFO expert Kevin Randle said: "Though Forgus didn’t know which branch of the service they were in, the US Army on their fatigues should have been a big clue.

    The 70th anniversary of the Roswell incident takes place this July.

    "He was asked if there were lights on the craft and he said, 'No, they went out when it banged into the wall in the creek'

    "Though I’m not sure how he would have known that the lights went out when it hit because he wasn’t there."

    He said the crash site location described by Mr Forgus matched that given by the late Frank Kaufmann, whose account "has already been discredited."

    Mr Randle wrote: "He said he could see the bodies, though he didn’t have a good description of them. 

    RELATED ARTICLES

    "He talked about the big eyes. He said 'Their eyes looked like the ones we see on television and the pictures of them.'

    "But he was so far away, according to him, it is difficult to believe that he would have seen the eyes. 

    "The real clue is about having seen alien creatures on television. 

    "He just picked the most popular version of the aliens to describe."

    Mr Randle claimed the roads surrounding the crash site would have been blocked so they would have been unable to even get there.

    He added: "The other part of the story that fails is that they heard about this on the police radio, which seems unlikely, but even if that had been true, they wouldn’t have heard instructions on how to find the place. 

    "You can’t see it from the main roads, and the gravel and dirt roads into the area are quite rough and quite confusing. 

    "If you don’t know where you are going, you’d get lost. Without someone leading them in, or precise directions which wouldn’t have been broadcast, they would never have found their way to the crash site."

    Asked what the author and Mr Mantle thought of the testimony, Mr Mantle said: "We remain open minded on the testimony documented bu Deputy Sheriff Forgus.

    "We hope that by releasing this information now that others may be able to shed more light on it one way or the other."

    JFK saw evidence of aliens and UFOs while he was president, 'former pilot' claims

    A "FORMER pilot" for John F Kennedy has been filmed saying the assassinated president had seen government evidence of aliens and UFOs.

    The man, who features in new documentary 'Unacknowledged’ is seen speaking to camera about a conversation with the president.

    He described the pair discussing a newspaper article that mentioned UFOs.

    The man, who is not named in the clip from the documentary, says the president asked him what he thought, so he threw the question back at JFK.

    He said: "JFK responded, 'well I asked you first'."

    JFK-Pilot

    GETTY*YouTube

    The documentary claims JFK admitted knowing about aliens and interviews in a talk with his 'pilot'.

    The man then said he did not think humans could be alone in the universe.

    He claimed JFK replied: "You're right young man, there is considerable knowledge as far as the being of UFOs and the ET phenomenon that we are aware of today." 

    Unacknowledged claims to expose years of coverups within the US government over the alleged truth of alien visitations of Earth being kept hidden from the public.

    The film is directed by Michael Mazzola and follows conspiracy theorist Dr Steven Greer, who is a major player in the so-called disclosure movement, which is calling for an end to an alleged truth embargo which ensures the cover-up continues.

    You're right young man, there is considerable knowledge as far as the being of UFOs and the ET phenomenon that we are aware of today."

    JFK

    The extensive documentary touches on the death of Marilyn Monroe, which it suggests was a murder coordinated by the CIA because of an alleged affair with JFK and claims she was about to blow the lid on UFOs based on pillow talk with the president.

    In the film, Dr Greer produces an alleged top secret CIA memo written two days before the star was found dead on on August 5, 1962, in Brentwood, Los Angeles, California.

    He claims it shows how she was wire tapped by the agency which had concerns about her liaison with the president.

    Last year, a new theory alleged that JFK was shot dead because he demanded the release of top-secret UFO files from the CIA.

    Alien researcher Scott C Waring, editor of the now defunct UFO Sightings Daily, posted copies to his website of a letter sent by JFK to the then head of the CIA just 10 days before he was murdered.

    He blogged: "Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton doesn't know it yet, but she does not have the power to release such information. 

    "CIA would kill her before she could, just like they did JFK. 

    "Yes, just a week before his death JFK wrote a memo to CIA to release all pertinent info to NASA, but somehow he was killed before it ever happened."

    For decades, Hollywood has pondered the age-old question: Are we alone in the universe? The Orchard’s new documentary Unacknowledged claims to have the answer.

    Directed by Michael Mazzola and narrated by Breaking Bad’s Giancarlo Esposito, the film features the work of Dr. Steven Greer, founder of The Disclosure Project, and is dubbed an important expose revealing covert interstellar secrets (that’s right, Hillary Clinton and other high-level public servants know all about ET visitors, says Greer).

    “There's no question in my mind that Hillary’s aware of the issue,” Greer says. “Her campaign chairperson John Podesta came out in favor of disclosure and said that the government should come forward with this information. And he remained a disclosure advocate all the way through the campaign. And [former] CIA Director James Woolsey first told me that he had made specific directed inquiries into the subject but was denied access.”

    What might come as a shock is how well these documentaries do on digital platforms. After debuting on iTunes on May 9, Unacknowledged shot to the No. 1 documentary spot worldwide and No. 2 in the U.S. (second only to Laura Poitras’ Julian Assange pic Risk). In fact, Unacknowledged, which debuted on VOD on May 23, is outpacing Risk in its first few weeks, despite the latter’s high-profile subject, a Cannes 2016 debut and an Oscar-winning director (Poitras won the 2015 best documentary prize for Citizenfour).

    Greer, a retired emergency room doctor, raised more than $700,000 through crowdfunding to finance the film and an accompanying book, published April 25 by A&M Publishing, but he still needed to find a distributor. Enter The Orchard, a wholly owned subsidiary of Sony Music Entertainment that entered the film distribution space just two-and-a-half years ago and already has an impressive track record with docs, having shepherded Life, Animated and Cartel Land to Oscar nominations in successive years. The company acquired Unacknowledged back in September 2016, with hopes of tapping into the rabid UFO fan base. The film features ET revelations from numerous government sources including Richard Doty, a former special agent for the U.S. Air Force Office of Special Investigations and offers whistleblower testimony, documents and more UFO footage than an X-Files marathon.

    Over the years, several Hollywood projects featuring Greer’s work fell apart “inexplicably,” he says, prompting him to put an unusual clause in his contract with The Orchard that if the movie wasn't released as planned, the rights would revert back to him. Among the projects he says were deep-sixed were a Fox film being developed by Arnold Kopelson (Seven) and an ABC News segment with Ira Rosen.

    “What we did here was ensure that the truth about this issue could get to the public, and if there was any attempt to shelve it, we would call it back,” adds Greer.

    Alas, Unacknowledged is out and doing brisk business since its debut. And given its success on streaming platforms, Greer once again has been approached by a few Hollywood producers that he declined to name about pursuing a narrative feature film based on his work. In the meantime, he and Mazzola say no one should be surprised that their film has found its audience.

    "I think UFOs are totally underestimated in terms of the public interest in this,” says Mazzola. "Besides pornography it's probably the most searched topic on the Internet.  And we're really excited to be the first UFO documentary to have a major distributor backing us."

    ROSWELL BREAKTHROUGH? New official witness to 'alien UFO crash' comes forward

    EXCLUSIVE: A witness that could help solve the perplexing Roswell ‘UFO crash’ mystery once and for all has allegedly come forward.

    Roswell-UFO

    GETTY

    A new alleged witness to the Roswell UFO crash will be revealed in book UFOs Today.

    The testimony will be revealed in a new book, set to be published on Thursday, Express.co.uk can reveal.

    The book, titled UFOs TODAY - 70 Years of Lies, Misinformation, and Government Cover-Up, has been penned by Dr Irena Scott, who gained a PhD in physiology from the University of Missouri.

    Dr Scott said: "This book features the testimony of a former US Deputy Sheriff who was an alleged witness to the UFO crash at Roswell in 1947. 

    "This gentleman’s unique testimony will be published here for the first time."

    UFOs-Today

    FlyingDiskPress

    The new book will be released on Thursday, June 1.

    Roswell has been at the heart of the UFO scene since in July 1947 the military sensationally announced in a press release it had found the remains of a crashed flying saucer in the desert nearby.

    But the following day it retracted the statement, saying it was in fact a damaged US Air Force air balloon.

    Witnesses later came forward to say there had been alien bodies within the "crashed craft", which along with the wreckage were then taken to the mysterious top-secret Area 51 military base in Nevada.

    It has gone on to become the biggest UFO conspiracy theory on record.

    Phillip Mantle, of publisher Flying Disk Press, said: "The UFO crash at Roswell, New Mexico in 1947 is undoubtedly the most famous UFO event in the world. 

    "The new book by American academic Irena Scott PhD looks set to keep the debate surrounding this event moving. 

    "A new witness to the events near Roswell in 1947 is just a small part of this outstanding book. 

    "Is there a government cover-up of UFO events?

    "Did a UFO crash near Roswell in 1947?

    This book features the testimony of a former US Deputy Sheriff who was an alleged witness to the UFO crash at Roswell in 1947.

    Dr Irena Scott

    "This unique books looks to answer these and many other questions."

    The book also looks at Government official investigations into the UFO phenomena since before 1947.

    Dr Scott, who claims to have witnessed a Government cover up over UFOS first hand, said: "Examination of government knowledge of the UFO phenomena is vital because it provides important evidence about whether the subject is taken seriously by government authorities, and can potentially provide technical information about the phenomena.

    "The book also includes never-before-published first-hand interviews and correspondence with many of the most important and the initial investigators of the phenomena. 

    "This is significant because many of these people have died and those who are living are getting old. 

    "Thus, this research provides an historical record of the reasoning and opinions of those making an initial impact in this field."

    Dr Scott went on to work for the Defence Intelligence Agency and the Aerospace Center in satellite photography.

    She was also a volunteer astronomer at the Ohio State University Radio Observatory and has more than 30 years experience as a UFO field investigator with the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON).

    “Very Strange Humanoid Bodies”

    Having written two articles this week on questionable and hoaxed UFO documents, I figured why not make it a “trilogy”? As with the previous articles – one on Marilyn Monroe and the other on the Rendlesham Forest UFO event of December 1980 – this one tells a very odd story. Back in 1978, Leonard Stringfield’s book, Situation Red: The UFO Siege, was published. It’s a book that includes a wealth of material on a wide variety of UFO cases – abductions, UFO crashes, radar-visual events, and much more. Also in the book, there’s a weird tale which revolves around the University of Chicago.

    The story was told to Stringfield, in February 1975, by a UFO researcher named Sherman Larsen. Some months earlier, Larsen said to Stringfield, he was contacted by a Presbyterian minister from Wisconsin. The man had a strange tale to tell. He claimed that when he was a child his father – who was also a minister – took him to the Chicago-based Museum of Science and Industry. During the course of the day, father and son supposedly “strayed off into a labyrinth of corridors and became lost. Hoping to find an exit, they entered a room in which they encountered a large, glass-covered case.” Contained within the case were several, small bodies that were human-like but not human. According to Stringfield, “The minister recalled that instantly his father was grabbed by several men and forcibly taken into another room. Detained for some time, his father was forced to sign papers before they were allowed to leave the museum.”

    It should be noted that within the world of Forteana (and particularly in Ufology) there are numerous tales of people wandering off when in government buildings and military installations, and going down the wrong corridor and stumbling on some terrible secret in a hidden room. The “Chicago story” may very well be just another variation on that theme. The late UFO researcher Todd Zechel took a particular interest in this story. In looking into it, he claimed to have found a connection between the strange bodies at the Chicago-based Museum of Science and Industry and certain events that supposedly occurred at the University of Chicago from the late 1940s to the early 1950s.

    In 1979, Zechel quietly shared a controversial letter with Stringfield and several others, which seemed to confirm some of the tales of strange bodies in Chicago, years earlier. It was written on University of Chicago stationery and was dated May 5, 1979. The letter was supposedly written to Zechel by a professor at the university and reads as follows:

    “I do not know the source of your information but after having assigned several graduate students to spend considerable time researching the University archives, I find that you are correct in your information about some very strange humanoid bodies being examined here in 1948 and again in 1952. The professors you named did indeed participate in the autopsies and studies but unfortunately, all three are deceased so we can obtain no further information from them. All results of the studies were apparently classified and removed from the university by government agents for whom the studies were performed. The only people my graduate students could locate that were even remotely connected with the studies said that they only remembered talk of four-foot-tall, sexless bodies thought to have been the product of Nazi cloning and genetic experiments and recovered from the ruins of German laboratories.”

    Chicago Museum of Science and industry

    When Stringfield took steps to have the doctor approached for comment on the controversial letter (and its beyond-dubious contents), the doctor replied: “The information that you have received is incorrect. As far as I know the basis for it is a letter under my name describing such a strange phenomenon. However, the letter is a forgery, the body of the letter having been inserted over a genuine letter and then xeroxed. I am somewhat concerned about this matter and would appreciate knowing where your information came from.”

    If you ever come across a copy of the letter, the best thing you can do is throw it out with the garbage. That’s where it belongs.

    Filer’s Files #22 – 2017 Philosophical Problems with ET Messages - PART I

    In special reports, this week’s files cover: Toshiki Kaifu, Prime Minister, Japan UFO Problem Is a Reality, Zecharia Sitchin Ancient Clay Tablets Describe Ancient Astronauts UFOs, Folklore and UFOs: Jacques Vallee, Philosophical and Other Problems with ET Messages, Space Aggressors’ Train US Forces for Extraterrestrial Conflict and New York Times Publishes Manchester Bombing Details

    Unidentified Aerial Phenomena sightings were reported over California, Florida, Illinois, Maryland, Missouri, Nevada, New Mexico, New York, and Texas.

    Unidentified Aerial Phenomena sightings were reported over Canada, Chile, Germany, India, Thailand, and England and Scotland in the United Kingdom.

    The Filer Research Institute feels the scientific study of UFOs is for the benefit of humankind and is an important endeavor. The US Air Force investigated UFOs publicly for more than twenty years under Project Blue Book; and I continue this advanced research. I believe the God of the universe has spread life throughout the cosmos and UFO’s are visiting us in ever-increasing numbers.

    Forward these files to your friends and neighbors.

    Happy Memorial Day

    Special Projects

    Toshiki Kaifu, Prime Minister, Japan UFO Problem Is a Reality

     First of all, I told a magazine this past January that, as an underdeveloped country with regards to the UFO problem, Japan had to take into account what should be done about the UFO question, and that we had to spend more time on these matters.  In addition, I said that someone had to solve the UFO problem with far reaching vision at the same time. Secondly, I believe it is a reasonable time to take the UFO problem seriously as a reality.

    I hope that this Symposium will contribute to peace on Earth from the point of view of outer space, and take the first step toward the international cooperation in the field of UFOs. Toshiki Kaifu, Prime Minister, Japan, in a letter to Mayor Shiotani of Hakui City, dated June 24, 1990, endorsing an upcoming Space & UFO Symposium.

    Toshiki Kaifu is a Japanese politician who was the 76th and 77th Prime Minister of Japan from 1989 to 1991.

    The recent election of Prime Minister Yukio Hatoyama of the Democratic Party of Japan was a political earthquake since the outgoing Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) has ruled the country for half a century. Although the main issue was the economy, the LDP was also run by uncharismatic and dull party leaders.

    It now seems that Japan’s new first couple won’t be dull. The new first lady, 66-year old Miyuki Hatoyama, is a former actress, dancer and singer in the Takarazuka Revue all-female theater group, which  has some rather eclectic New Age ideas and lifestyles. Japanese and international media went abuzz with Miyuki Hatoyama’s comments about her astral trip to Venus inside a UFO 20 years ago.

    “While my body was sleeping, I think my spirit flew on a triangular-shaped UFO to Venus,” she wrote in the book Most Bizarre Things I’ve Encountered, adding that “it was an extremely beautiful place and was very green.”

    Zecharia Sitchin Ancient Clay Tablets Describe Ancient Astronauts UFOs

     A few years ago before his death on October 9, 2010, I had dinner with Zecharia Sitchin whose work was based on clay tablets some of oldest recorded writings known to man that were found in modern day Iraq (Samaria). Sitchin’s work consists of eight books promoting an explanation for human origins involving ancient astronauts. He explained to me that much of the ancient data is also contained in the Book of Genesis, which is the basis for many of the world’s religions including Christianity and Judaism. Basically it tells that God created the Earth and all living things. Visitors from space called the Nephilim came to Earth and mated with women. A great war occurred in the planet Heaven and a group of angels led by Satan were forced out and settled on Earth. Satan or the Devil attempts to convince mankind to follow his beliefs. The combatants are referred to in the Dead Sea Scrolls as the Sons of Light versus the Sons of Darkness. This war has continued for over 6,000 years.

    We can assume the craft in our skies have a connection with these ancient writings. Genesis has more relevance to the present day than you might realize. There are two wills in the universe, God’s will and Satan’s will.

    Genesis 19 is one of the most commonly cited passages in the Bible that describes the destruction of Sodom. The term “Sodomite” was originally used to refer to an inhabitant of Sodom — a city which was located in Canaan, present day Israel. It later became a legal term to refer to criminal sexual acts. God apparently had a fierce anger directed at the inhabitants of the town. He destroyed Sodom with fire and brimstone (sulfur) dumped from above. According to the story, he killed all of the inhabitants of Sodom for threatening the rape of two angels who blinded their attackers.

    Folklore and UFOs: Jacques Vallee

    Over two decades ago, eminent scientist Jacques Vallee wrote a provocative book about UFO cases, folklore, and certain unexplained phenomena in Passport to Magonia, which changed our understanding of the UFO phenomenon by connecting documents and data from earlier centuries that related to incidents in the modern era. Among the numerous parallels between UFOs, folklore, and religious traditions were tales of fairies, elves, leprechauns, apparitions, and strange creatures.

    In Celtic regions, witnesses described seeing fairies who were accompanied by strange oval objects from the sky, and these beings were also known for abducting people– not unlike modern reports of alien abduction, he pointed out. A ninth century account from the Archbishop of Lyon, France dealt with three people who were said to emerge from a flying ship– villagers thought they came from a magical land called Magonia. Investigators have neglected to recognize one important perspective of the phenomenon: the fact that beliefs identical to those held today have recurred throughout recorded history and under forms best adapted to the believer’s country, race, and social regime.

    If we take a wide sample of this historical material, we find that it is organized around one central theme: visitation by an aerial people from one or more remote, legendary countries. The names and attributes vary, but the main idea clearly does not. Magonia, heaven, hell, – all such places have in common one characteristic: we are unable to reach them alive, except on very special occasions. Emissaries from these supernatural abodes come to earth, sometimes under human form and sometimes as monsters. They perform wonders. They serve man or fight him. Vallee spoke of how UFO phenomena seems to straddle different layers of reality, and what witnesses actually observe may be modulated by their individual consciousness. People in Asia view the phenomenon as part of nature, and the alien beings hailing from a different plane, rather than another planet, he added.

    Philosophical and Other Problems with ET Messages

    Many of the encounters with extraterrestrials appear to be friendly and even loving while others appear hateful and demonic. It appears we are dealing with various alien civilizations or hidden entities. Some may have been here for centuries while others may be recent arrivals with different motivations, Star Wars like encounters seem real with UFOs crashing periodically for the last seventy years. The damage to their craft appears to have been caused by advanced weapons. Either we have these weapons or the various ET civilizations are fighting one another. The Star Wars films may be closer to the truth than we realize.

    There seems to be reports and research, components which parallel paranormal, psychic, and spiritistic manifestations, etc. Many UFO abductees, contactees and researchers, for instance, believe there is an interdimensional or multidimensional quality to the UFO phenomena and related experiences. Although the UFO phenomena may appear real enough, it also could be a holographic illusion or a transmogrification of matter and energy. Perhaps certain intelligences have the power to shape matter and spirit or to make our dreams so real, we believe they actually occurred.

    Some UFOs and their occupants seem to have an ability to shape shift and appear and disappear.

    Dr. J. Allen Hyneck suggested the phenomena appears to be more psychic than extra-terrestrial and perhaps comes from a parallel world. This also seems to be Dr. Jacque Vallee’s explanation who also notes that there are authoritarian overtones to some of the messages given to contactees i.e. Democracy is obsolete, elections should be done away with, racist ideologies are encouraged – some have more alien DNA etc., a New World Order is needed and will be set up with alien help. Once they are in charge there will be no more wars or crime. Vallee also believes that some kind of control system is being set up by the UFO phenomenon which challenges our traditions and human beliefs systems. Many abductees report implants and feel they are being manipulated for some unknown purpose that’s yet to be revealed. Much of the messages given to abductees and contactees seem to be New Age in philosophical orientation and language: there are no moral absolutes, reincarnation is taught, beliefs such as a vague “kinship with the Cosmos and it’s oneness with the Universe or the Universe as a supreme being are common, we are being told that “we stand on the precipice of a quantum leap forward on both a biological and spiritual level.” Man is or is becoming God…etc. There are several alien types taking credit for the creation of man as outlined in the ancient Sumerian tablets.

    Many alien prophesies to contactees of the 60’s or to-day have failed to come true or appear to be outright lies. Many contactees and abductees to-day are again delivering warnings of coming earth changes and disasters along with promises of help from aliens, So what are we dealing with? New Age aliens with a promise of a Golden Age or some unimaginable deception to enslave undiscerning minds. The evidence seems to point to the latter.

    There have been many false messianic claims and those foolish enough to repeat history by following the voices of deceiving entities have been warned to beware of false prophets and Christ’s who come disguised as sheep but underneath are ravenous wolves “.We should be reminded of the likes of Adolf Hitler who not long ago promised a New Age to unsuspecting Germans.

    Whitley Strieber, in the MUFON Journal, states –

    I’ve come away from this experience convinced of one thing: if there aren’t demons out there, there might as well be, because these guys are indistinguishable from demons. Indistinguishable, to see them, to look into their eyes, is to be less – forever.”

     Strieber seems to swing from horror to naive trust; you see this in his books and statements to the public. Perhaps, he is not so sure of the visitor’s intentions. The Reptilian aliens may be the same ones called demons or the devil by religion.

    Some UFO researchers suggest that perhaps the so called ‘aliens’ aren’t much of a threat, after all if they have been around for this long and have not taken over then why should we be concerned. However, if they are not what they appear to be and the phenomena has other potentials and realities which include: deception, false messianic claims, dangerous ideologies, the formation of cults, etc., then for historical, social and political reasons we should not abandon our need for discernment and caution.

    Here are some great UFO quotes that shed light on the deceptive nature of the “alien” presence. But the UFO phenomenon simply does not behave like extraterrestrial visitors. It actually molds itself in order to fit a given culture. John Ankerberg, The Facts on UFOs and Other Supernatural Phenomena, p. 10

    We are dealing with a multidimensional paraphysical phenomenon which is largely indigenous to planet earth.” Brad Steiger, [cited in] Blue Book Files Released in Canadian UFO Report, Vol. 4, No. 4, 1977, p. 20

    We are part of a symbiotic relationship with something which disguises itself as an extra-terrestrial invasion so as not to alarm us. Terrence McKenna [from a lecture]

    “A large part of the available UFO literature is closely linked with mysticism and the metaphysical. It deals with subjects like mental telepathy, automatic writing and invisible entities as well as phenomena like poltergeist [ghost] manifestation and ‘possession.’ Many of the UFO reports now being published in the popular press recount alleged incidents that are strikingly similar to demonic on and psychic phenomena.” -Lynn E. Catoe, UFOs and Related Subjects: USGPO, 1969

    “UFO behavior is more akin to magic than to physics as we know it the modern UFOnauts and the demons of past days are probably identical.” Dr. Pierre Guerin, FSR Vol. 25, No. 1, p. 13-14

    The UFO manifestations seem to be, by and large, merely minor variations of the age-old demonological phenomenon” John A. Keel, UFOs: Operation Trojan Horse, p. 299

    Human beings are under the control of a strange force that bends them in absurd ways, forcing them to play a role in a bizarre game of deception.” Dr. Jacques Vallee, Messengers of Deception, p. 20

    The ‘medical examination’ to which abductees are said to be subjected, often accompanied by sadistic sexual manipulation, is reminiscent of the medieval tales of encounters with demons. It makes no sense in a sophisticated or technical framework: Any intelligent being equipped with the scientific marvels that UFOs possess would be in a position to achieve any of these alleged scientific objectives in a shorter time and with fewer risks. Dr. Jacques Vallee, Confrontations, p. 13

    The symbolic display seen by the abductees is identical to the type of initiation ritual or astral voyage that is imbedded in the occult traditions of every culture the structure of abduction stories is identical to that of occult initiation rituals the UFO beings of today belong to the same class of manifestation as the [occult] entities that were described in centuries past.Dr. Jacques Vallee citing the extensive research of Bertrand Meheust in Confrontations, p. 146, 159-161

     [The occultist] is brought into intelligent communication with the spirits of the air, and can receive any knowledge which they possess, or any false impressions they choose to impart the demons seem permitted to do various wonders at their request.” -G.H. Pember, Earth’s Earliest Ages and Their Connection with Modern Spiritualism and Theosophy (1876), p. 254 Thanks to Noah’s Dove.

    Space Aggressors’ Train US Forces for Extraterrestrial Conflict

    Elite military units are specializing in mock space warfare, as Russia and China develop anti-satellite weaponry. By Greg Walters

    In a large, tin-roofed warehouse near Colorado’s Rocky Mountains, members of a team of modern space warriors spend their days hatching plots to defeat the US military in extraterrestrial combat.  They’re called Space Aggressors. Their job is to act like the enemy during mock space battles to help US units prepare for a conflict that may one day extend into the cosmos.

    US Army Spc. Angel Mendoza, assigned as a space aggressor operator to the 527th Space Aggressor Squadron, Schreiver Air Force Base, Colorado., secures a helical antenna to a gravel pad adjacent to the flight line Aug. 8, 2016, during RED FLAG-Alaska (RF-A) 16-3, at Eielson Air Force Base, Alaska. Along with two modems and an amplifier, space aggressors at RF-A 16-3 interrupt GPS systems for navigation and weapons, which pilots use during the exercise designed to simulate the first 10 combat sorties of a surge operation or conflict. | US Air Force/Staff Sgt. Shawn Nickel

    “We play the bad guys,” said Captain Christopher Barnes, chief of training for the 26th Space Aggressor Squadron. “Our job is to not only understand the different types of threats and potential enemies, but also to be able to portray them and replicate them for the good guys, our Air Force.

    The 26th and 527th Space Aggressor Squadrons are headquartered in a two-story warehouse at Colorado’s Schriever Air Force Base, stocked with advanced radio and satellite equipment and nicknamed “the barn.” Behind the building, antenna dishes trace the sky. While attacks by the Space Aggressors are simulated, senior U.S. military and intelligence officials warn the threat in space is very real.

    America relies heavily on space assets to project force around the globe, from launching missiles to directing warships across the seas. Indeed, the Global Positioning System, or GPS, is actually a group of 31 high-orbiting satellites owned by the US government and operated by the US Air Force.

    Some worry that disrupting America’s vast network of satellites and ground-based systems could send US forces back to an antiquated era of targeting, communications, and navigation systems — deeply undercutting battlefield superiority.

    This spring, rhetoric from US military officials about the need to bolster American defensive position, and even offensive capabilities, in space has ratcheted up amid concern that Russia and China are rapidly developing anti-satellite weapons.µ


    While we’re not at war in space, I don’t think we could say we’re exactly at peace, either,”

    Vice Admiral Charles Richard, Deputy Commander of U.S. Strategic Command, known as Stratcom, told a conference in Washington DC in March. “We must prepare for a conflict that extends into space.”

    His operational assignments include command of USS Parche (SSN 683) as well as Submarine NR-1, then the U.S. Navy’s only nuclear-powered, deep-submergence submarine. Richard previously served as the director, Undersea Warfare Division (N97) in Washington, D.C., and was responsible for the planning, programming and budgeting for acquisition, operational readiness and modernization of the submarine force and its support

    In his remarks, Vice Admiral Richard pointed to press reports that “China is developing an arsenal of lasers, electro-magnetic rail guns, and high-powered microwave weapons to neutralize America’s intelligence, communications, and navigations satellites.

    The US military has now opened the National Space Defense Center. Thanks to www.space.com/tech-robot

    New York Times Publishes Manchester Bombing Details

    Re “Discovered at the Scene: A Backpack, a Battery and Shrapnel” (news article, May 25):

    As a longtime reader of The Times, I was shocked, saddened and frankly confused by the decision to publish pictures of forensic evidence gathered by the British police from the scene of the bombing in Manchester. The release of any detail from a continuing counterterrorism investigation can have a harmful effect on that investigation. In particular, in a case in which it is suspected that the bomb maker is still at large, the forensic details could provide him or her with useful damage assessment information to “improve” the next device manufactured. Against this risk, it is unclear what public interest or informational need was served by publishing these pictures of the scene of an atrocity. I expect efforts to capitalize on sensational details from my country’s tabloids, but not from The Times. Andrew Gawthorpe Leiden, the Netherlands

    “The alleged leaks coming out of government agencies are deeply troubling,” Mr. Trump said in a statement. “These leaks have been going on for a long time, and my administration will get to the bottom of this. The leaks of sensitive information pose a grave threat to our national security.

    Prime Minister Mrs. May’s statement followed expressions of outrage by top law enforcement officials after The New York Times published images on Wednesday of the shrapnel, backpack and battery used by Salman Abedi, the 22-year-old bomber who killed 22 people and injured scores outside the Manchester Arena as a pop concert ended Monday night. The Times did not disclose the source of its information.

    The National Police Chiefs’ Council in Britain called the leaks a breach of trust, adding, “This damage is even greater when it involves unauthorized disclosure of potential evidence in the middle of a major counterterrorism investigation.” The disclosure of potential evidence “undermines our investigations and the confidence of victims, witnesses and their families, it added.

    On Thursday, Manchester’s top police official, Chief Constable Ian Hopkins, joined the chorus of criticism, saying that the disclosure “has caused much distress for families that are already suffering terribly with their loss.” Thanks to the NY Times

    US Constitution Article III Section 3 — Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying war against them, or in adhering to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort.

     “Islam is coming to take over Germany whether you want it or not … not through war but by the fact that Germans don’t reproduce and Muslims have seven to eight children for each wife but not only that, your daughters will marry bearded Muslims and wear the hijab; their sons will wear a beard!”The Muslims will have four wives and 27 children living on the welfare state, and what does the German man have? One child and maybe a little pet dog! The German has taken advantage of the Muslim for too long, just so he can drive his Mercedes. … “Now Islam is coming and your daughters will wear the hijab!

    Filer’s Files #22 – 2017 Philosophical Problems with ET Messages - PART II

    UFO Sightings in the United States

    California Object

    Joshua Tree — I just return from a weeklong trip for a yearly 4 day UFO/ET “Contact in the Desert” Event.

    This event was well attended by over thirty world renowned UFO personages, and when event was over, as I was on Greyhound Bus back to OKC,

    I took several pictures. But when I decided to review them, I noticed that two pictures had very bright light Orbs in them which I did not see when picture was taken. I have seen several other UFOs in the past, so I know them when I see then.

    I am also a Zetan Contactee since 1998. Thanks to MUFON CMS

    Florida Lights

    Orlando – On May 16, 2017, my dad took this picture near Epcot Center. My dad said he was at a hotel in Orlando on the 18th floor at around 8 AM in the morning. He was looking out his hotel room this past Tuesday admiring the view. He never saw any object in the sky until he got home and looked through the picture. So it could very well be a flash, but he took other photos of the same scene without the object there. My dad used his I-phone 7. I also attached the other pictures he sent me. Thanks for any information you can provide. I find this very fascinating. I hope that you can figure it out. I did some research and there were some pictures and video online of UFO’s in that area.

    Note: Although the photo above is somewhat compelling it is likely a reflection of a light fixture off of the window glass and therefore is not a real object. Several other photos show the object. Thanks to William Puckett, Director Http://www.UFOsnw.com

    Miami – I saw a triangle with orange circle lights on the corners in 2012. I was working outside and doing squats looking at the sky.

    I saw it but got lost in some trees. I am blessed that someone saw it with me (my dad) otherwise I would go mad.

    I told my family about it. It glided smoothly. The second I saw it, I thought it was none other than a ufo it was so distinct how it glided and the lights on it. Thanks to MUFON CMS

     Illinois “Vs” Craft

    The picture was taken with one of my sister’s trail cameras on April 20, 2017 at 11:49:23 am in the southeast sky.

    She leaves the cameras out for a couple of weeks and this strange picture was from one of them.

    She contacted MUFON but has not received anything back. I was wondering if you know what it is and if you seen anything like it before? Thanks to MUFON CMS

    Maryland Object

    Annapolis — I’m traveling all over America, helping people to break the chains. I want you to know that I’m still witnessing UFOs at times during my travels, and as recent as yesterday morning May 15th, 2017 at my home at 5 am.

    I was just getting into bed and turned the TV off at 4:55 Am and the only sound in the room was a fan. I had just gotten myself comfortable, when I heard a copter outside of the building. I quickly dismissed it as the fan motor and tried to go to sleep. It was getting louder and louder. Then I asked my wife if she heard it and she said yes. I jumped out of bed and went to the window to see a very large triangular UFO, slowly moving away to the Northeast. It looked more like a boomerang and it had white lights all over it, with a red light under it. The red light was flashing as it moved away and then it stopped flashing. I saw the craft wobble from side to side and the red light began flashing again as it moved towards I-97. Anyone driving on that part of I-97, at that time surely would have seen it!
    As you know George, I have taken hundreds and hundreds of UFO pictures since October 5, 1995 and I’m attaching a few for your review. Please feel free to add them in Filers Files if you like. I’m convinced that the UFO phenomenon is absolutely connected to paranormal/supernatural activity, (along with divine experiences as well.) Psalm 68:17 says:
    King James Bible
    the chariots of God are twenty thousand, even thousands of angels: the Lord is among them, as in Sinai, in the holy place.

    In my work as a Spiritual Warrior, I have come across a few people who were under demonic possession, and had eyes that looked Reptilian. Some of these people told me of having UFO experiences as well. There’s much more that I could say, but I will stop here.

    GOD bless you my friend Bill Beanwww.billbean.netwww.billbeanministries.com

     Missouri Orb

    Brentwood — During the morning of May 5, 2017, I was taking pictures from across the street from the 360′ free-standing Microwave Tower at the intersection of Hanley and Manchester Roads. I wanted a good picture for a Power Point presentation and didn’t see anything. The next day I was editing the pictures and in two of the three pictures there was a star-like image. The three pictures were taken two seconds apart and the image was in the last two. Within two seconds something wasn’t there and then it was there at 10:20 am, I returned to the exact photo spot on May 7, 2017, at 10:30 am and took a series of 12 tower photos and 11 frames had 22 points of light. Two seconds later in #6 they are gone but now there are two lights considerably right of the tower. I returned on May 9 at 10:20 am and took a series of 10 pictures, 2 seconds apart. Seven of the frames had 9 lights. I have included frames 1 and 2 where the light(s) has a fuzzy quality. I returned at 10:20 AM on May 21, took 10 more pictures and caught 4 more lights. In summary, on 4 occasions I took a total of 35 pictures and zoomed into 38 points of interest. I can’t account for the now-you-see-it and now-you-don’t UFOs and two seconds later two appear somewhere else. Thanks to MUFON CMS

    Nevada Disc

    Las Vegas — On May 15, 2017, at 2:16 pm on Las Vegas Boulevard I was shooting the Nellis Air Force Base aircraft coming in for a landing. I have Sony a350 DSLR, shooting specs of iso 400, f8. I was looking north as some airplanes come straight down the Vegas Boulevard to make two 180 degree turns and land at Nellis. There were. At about plane 18 in a group of 22 planes, I spotted a light coming behind and out of the clouds. I began to shoot, getting 10 shots off in 12 seconds. I recorded an image on 9 out of 10. The UFO is about two miles away that was like a bright light, but when I blew it up, it looked like a descending Smokey Goldfish Cracker. The object started up at 1000 feet and pulled a 45 degree fast descent and just disappeared. The planes run north parallel to the runway, do a sharp 180 and fly south for the landing. Whatever this object was it was observing the aircraft landing?

    Note: Enlargement reveals an irregularly shaped object. I don’t have any reason to believe that the object is bird or balloon. The witness saw the object and thought it was unusual and that it appeared to be observing the Nellis AFB jets landing at Las Vegas Airport. The first photo in the animation shows one of the jets landing. Thanks to William Puckett, Director Http://www.UFOsnw.com

    New Mexico Object

    Albuquerque – I was hiking in Petroglyph National Monument in Piedras Marcadas Canyon on Saturday, May 20, 2017, at 4:30 pm. I was returning to the trail head when I noticed a bright pulsating light pulsating every 5-10 seconds. It was moving south of Sandia Peak and I had my camera with zoom lenses and was able to capture several photos of the object.

    The object was about 10 miles from me descending below the mountain peak. It was too large to be the Sandia Peak Tram. As object pulsated I attempted to capture photos of the craft. I stopped other hikers as the object quickly ascended above the Sandia Mountains. After several minutes, its altitude lowered and it suddenly disappeared. Thanks to MUFON CMS

    New York Light

    Medina — On May 17th 2017, around 7 PM I walked outside on my deck and noticed the southeastern sky was making a twister type cloud. I went and grabbed my camera and took a few pictures and nothing was out of the ordinary. I went back to the other side of the house and looked up, and yelled to my fiancé. “Look at the sky!!” He also saw this amazing sighting for only two minutes or so, the twister had formed and a blue glowing ball was coming closer and closer. It appeared and disappeared, being closer every time. The blue glowing ball, or orb, ended up being only about 500 feet higher before it disappeared. We then watched and took more pictures because the clouds looked like they had something in them. After it all started to blow over, or break apart… there were smoke like clouds that looked different than any other we have seen, and then they were gone. We felt extremely exhilarated and excited about what we had seen. We saw these awesome glowing blue orbs in the pictures and we then decided to share the beauty. Thanks to MUFON CMS

    Texas Green Light

    San Antonio – I have observed a green light arrive nightly about from 8 PM and stay until 4AM, for the last three weeks since the beginning of May.

    I see it only when sitting in my entry way at a certain angle. The object is green, very bright, and has flashing lights that seems to reconfigure.

    Worldwide UFO Sightings

    Canada Disc

    Toronto — My Mother-in-law was visiting Downtown Toronto with my wife on May 17, 2017, and took some pictures of the tall buildings on her way home.

    Next day she was showing pictures of downtown buildings to her friends at the ESL program where she is studying English, and they noticed that there was a strange object flying in the sky.

    The picture is really clear and you can see something flying that looks like a space ship. Thanks to MUFON CMS

    Chile Lights

    Santiago de Chile -After a night storm, I took two pictures of the Snow Mountains on May 18, 2017. My view of the photos shows a light ascending that I couldn’t see when I took the pictures)
    My position is on a little terrace of my apartment. The site is in front of San Ramon mountain in Los Andes, Santiago de Chile.
    I can´t see the object during the shooting of the photos; I only see it while checking the pictures. When I looked up between shots I saw the lights upper movement. Thanks to MUFON CMS

    Germany Object

    Stuttgart — I was filming an American Football game in Germany on November 9, 2009, when I turned around and saw this object hovering in mid air.

    I asked my camera man to film this real quickly, he filmed it sadly not long enough, after he stopped filming, and the object flew offThanks to MUFON CMS

    India Lights

    Bhopal — I was on my terrace at 5 PM, and was clicking pictures of the cloud cover using my mobile camera on May 25, 2017.

    After taking 4-5 pictures and a short video when I viewed those pictures there were two pictures within an interval of a minute without turning on the camera flash. These images had a yellow color circular light which had descended down in the second image from its initial position in the first image.
    The other images that I have taken with the camera flash do not show that yellow circular light.
    I am amazed and want to know what I have clicked. Thanks to MUFON CMS

    Thailand Light

    Bangkok –. I looked out of my balcony and noticed an extremely bright light in the sky, quite low on May 6, 2017. I assumed it to be a star which was burning unusually bright, but on closer inspection it was below the low clouds.

    This object was so bright it would leave a blind spot in my vision with tentacles of frozen/static electricity. The hovering object seemed to be a mushroom or triangle shape with a base. I observed it for almost two hours, even as the sun began to rise. It was still visible in the sunlight but slightly harder to see I became fearful as I had never seen anything like it. I went to bed around 7am and the object was still there. When I woke up a few hours later, the object had disappeared.  Thanks to MUFON CMS

    United Kingdom /England Sightings

    Newton Abbot Devon England — I was watching a propeller plane fly above the clouds when I spotted a black object that was emerging from the clouds.

    I quickly took a photograph and watched as the object went back into the clouds from where it emerged. ‎The Photograph was taken on the 14th of ‎May ‎2017 at ‏‎12:02 PM. Thanks to MUFON CMS

    Newton Abbot Devon England — I have again spotted and photographed an alien craft near a passenger plane. The photo was taken on of ‎May 22, 2017, ‏‎at 11:55 AM. It was a beautiful hot day, so I decided to go out in the hot sun and sky watch. I watched as many passenger planes passed over head, but I didn’t see anything strange so I decided to focus my attention on distant planes. I spotted a passenger plane and an alien craft that was moving up along the planes contrail towards the plane. Once the alien craft was near the plane it matched the planes air speed and began to follow the plane. These alien craft are checking out more and more passing aircraft over this airspace. It is as if they are looking for someone or something. The mind really boggles to why they are so interested with our planes? I continued to watch the plane and the alien craft as they flew across the sky. Then after a while the alien craft seemed to lose interest with the plane and broke off its pursuit and then flew off into nearby clouds. The alien craft was oval shaped and was the size of the passenger plane. There were also other smaller black spheres flying that were ejected by the larger alien craft. Thanks to MUFON CMS

    United Kingdom /Scotland Saucer

    Blairgowrie –. The sun was out and there was far away mist like clouds on April 2, 2017. I was walking on the road not far from the standing stone and thought I saw a giant star in my peripheral vision. I looked closer to it and could see a rough outline of a shadow and seemed like something metallic and spherical. But the shadows did not show spherical but as if it was round and slim and on its side, as if it was a flying saucer.

    The shadow was just on the left side of the edge so I knew it was not spherical like a weather balloon would be. It was not shiny silver but as if was similar to a shiny surface. It was stationary, and I am not too sure if it shrank as it kept fading quickly and coming back again. Then it became a small ball of light and then disappeared completely. Thanks to MUFON CMS

    Aerospace Executive ‘Absolutely Convinced’ There Are Aliens On Earth

    “There has been and is an existing ET presence. I spent more than anybody else in the U.S. has ever spent on this subject.”

    VIDEOFROMSPACE / YOUTUBE
    An illustration of Bigelow Aerospace’s expandable spacecraft

    In an eye-opening interview on “60 Minutes” Sunday night, aerospace mogul and entrepreneur Robert Bigelow said he was ‘absolutely convinced’ there were alien visitors to Earth.

    Most of the segment focused on how NASA and the Las Vegas-based Bigelow Aerospace are in a partnership to develop an expandable craft for humans to use in space. Bigelow’s far-reaching vision puts him right in the middle of a new privatization of space, a race that includes billionaires Elon Musk and Jeff Bezos.

    In the following video, Bigelow describes a typical expandable system to be used on future space flights.

    However, during the “60 Minutes” interview with correspondent Lara Logan, the conversation shifted to Bigelow’s reported obsession with UFOs and aliens.

    Logan: “Do you believe in aliens?”

    Bigelow: “I’m absolutely convinced. That’s all there is to it.”

    Logan: “Do you also believe that UFOs have come to Earth?”

    Bigelow: “There has been and is an existing presence, an ET presence. And I spent millions and millions and millions ― I probably spent more as an individual than anybody else in the United States has ever spent on this subject.”

    Logan: “Is it risky for you to say in public that you believe in UFOs and aliens?”

    Bigelow: “I don’t give a damn. I don’t care.”

    Logan: “You don’t worry that some people will say, ‘Did you hear that guy, he sounds like he’s crazy’?”

    Bigelow: “I don’t care. It’s not gonna make a difference. It’s not gonna change reality of what I know.”

    Bigelow wouldn’t elaborate on what kind of results he had achieved from his well-funded UFO research. When asked if he thought future space missions would result in any encounters between humans and aliens, Bigelow said, “You don’t have to go anywhere. It’s just like right under people’s noses.”

    While Bigelow declined to describe his personal UFO encounters, he offered more elaborate details about UFOs, extraterrestrials and the private space industry during an interview on the national radio program, “Coast to Coast AM.”

    The Professional UFO Skeptic Who Believed in Aliens

    UFOS

    'The Close Encounters Man' tells the unlikely story of how the government's astrophysicist debunker became the phenomenon's most expert defender.

    If you're jonesing for an extraterrestrial, you should check out The Close Encounters Man by Mark O'Connell. O'Connell, a writer for Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and founder of the UFO blog High Strangeness, set out to write "a UFO book people wouldn't need to hide from other people." He found his ideal subject in J. Allen Hynek, the astronomer hired by the United States Air Force in 1948 to debunk the reports of strange objects in the sky flooding in from across the country. Eventually Hynek broke with his handlers and became the first scientist to lend credence to the UFO phenomenon. The author of 1972's The UFO Experience: A Scientific Study, he would go on to found the Center for UFO Studies in 1973, present a speech on flying saucers to the United Nations in 1978, and develop the "close encounter" scale that would inspire Steven Spielberg's popular Close Encounters of the Third Kind ("a huge boon to his work," O'Connell told me. "They shot a scene where the little aliens grab Hynek's pipe from him and stick it up their noses, but it was cut down to a six-second cameo.")

    In telling the life story of Hynek, the "astro-beatnik," O'Connell winds up with a stunning panorama of the UFO movement—from fringe conspiracy theorists to amateur astronomers to agnostic scientists—as well as its colossal impact on pop culture and modern science. I recently spoke with O'Connell over the phone about Hynek's unique story of skeptic turned believer, the scientific study of the inexplicable, and what makes a good UFO witness.

    VICE: What had to happen for a scientist as disciplined as Hynek to reach an epiphany and come around to a belief in flying saucers?

    Mark O'Connell: It was a gradual process punctuated by traumatic moments. He had been involved in the Air Force's first UFO study, Project Sign, where he simply looked over the collected UFO reports and classified as many as he could as misidentified astrological objects like comets or meteorological phenomena like strange clouds, or normal things like aircraft or weather balloons. At the end, there were about 20 percent of the cases left unsolved. He just put those aside, thinking with enough time and resources we could probably explain those away as well. So he filed the report, went back to teach at Ohio State and Wesleyan Universities.

    What led to Hynek getting involved with UFOs again?

    Three years later, the Air Force's UFO studies were reinvigorated under a new commander who wanted to take a fresh look at things. When he discovered Hynek was still teaching about 90 miles up the road, he paid him a visit to hear more about the work he'd done. And Hynek was shocked to discover it hadn't faded away. People were still seeing and reporting close encounters and there remained a consistent 20 percent that couldn't be explained. The numbers never changed, but his thinking changed.

    How did Hynek's thoughts on UFOs change?

    Shortly after that he gave an address to the Optical Society of America in Boston in 1952. He said, "Look, this is something we need to study that could represent an entirely unknown realm of nature, and as scientists we ought to be curious enough to want to study it." And that was earthshaking. But he often outraged the other side too, like in the infamous swamp gas case in Michigan of 1966. Over a hundred witnesses had seen floating lights in the nighttime and it caused huge national furor, made headlines all over the country. So the Air Force sent Hynek in to investigate. After three days of intense investigations, Hynek—a guy who went where the facts lead him and nowhere else—concluded that these people had quite possibly seen swamp gas. Everyone in Michigan was deeply offended to be shown up nationally as crackpots. So Hynek said, "You know, I'm not going to carry water for the Air Force any more," and went his own way and decided to begin conducting his own research. And, by the way, one of the things he said to the Optical Society was something that's always stuck in my mind: "Ridicule is not part of the scientific method, and the American public should not be taught that it is."


    Watch on Motherboard: 'The Space Bear: The First Animal to Survive Space':


    Where's the line between a conspiracy theorist and a fact-based skeptic who becomes skeptical even of other skeptics?

    I don't think we've found that line and that was one of the frustrations of Hynek's career. There was a brief period in the early 1980s when his Center for UFO Studies was really thriving. They had money coming in—they had a lot of support from the scientific establishment and were able to dedicate resources to investigating UFO cases. But over time they became less exciting to other UFO people. They were grabbing fewer headlines; financing fell apart; and the Center wasn't able to do nearly as much. So I think Hynek's efforts to bring the phenomenon into the sunlight and devote scientific study to it never had the opportunity to fully blossom. His goal was to cross that line and bring those two sides together. He came close, but I think he never quite achieved it.

    What were Hynek's chief takeaways about the study of UFOs?

    Hynek observed that a meteorologist can't study a tornado in a lab, only the results. He thought the same thing about UFOs: You have to get a little creative when you're researching something as off-the-wall as UFOs, which do seem to deliberately make it hard for us to understand them. I compare it to the "Confuse-a-Cat" sketch from Monty Python. We're the confused cat and we need to be shocked out of our stupor by something that seems to have little to do with our version of reality. And so many of us who write and think about UFOs have to reach for new frameworks to define the issue and then study it.

    How has our relationship with UFOs changed in the present time as compared to Hynek's heyday?

    It's changed quite a bit. One of the sad things about my book—and maybe this makes a case for writing a sequel—is that Hynek passed away in 1986, and it was exactly a year later that the entire UFO field went through a complete paradigm shift with the publication of Whitley Strieber's Communion [which was later made into a movie starring Christopher Walken]. Strieber was already a successful horror writer at the time, right up there with Stephen King and Peter Straub. In Communion, he tells the true—according to him!—story of his alien abduction while he and his family were staying at their cottage in upstate New York. So all of a sudden, the alien encounter narrative was flipped on its head. Up to that point, close encounters, when they were reported, generally took place in isolated locales—a lonely country highway or a deserted farm out in the boonies where there would be very few people to see what was happening. Now, after Communion, the aliens are appearing in your bedroom at night, a scenario Budd Hopkins and several other researchers confirmed. Now whether that shift is conscious or whether it points to some change in how we see ourselves, who knows?

    If on one side of the spectrum we have Carl Sagan and on the other, say, ErichVon Däniken, who theorized that ancient culture and religion was created by alien astronauts, where do we place Hynek?

    I would put him maybe close to the center, but more on the Sagan side. They both had a lot of contempt for UFO charlatans. So yeah, he would definitely put himself far from the Von Däniken side, but he also would have thought Sagan was being closed-minded and intellectually dishonest to a degree.

    What can ufology bring to modern science?

    The ability to use imagination as part of the scientific process. We hear all the time from NASA how, just recently, we've discovered a planet that has five or six other planets in its orbit or how the Tabby Star dims in such a way as to suggest an alien megastructure. We have all these wild, seemingly impossible things that are now proving to be true. At the same time, we have people—and I'm not knocking them because I love and respect the work they do—like Neil deGrasse Tyson and Bill Nye the Science Guy, who're crusading for scientific education, but will draw the curtain on UFO stuff because it "makes us look silly." I think we need to get past that, because it doesn't make you look silly, it makes you look like someone who is interested in learning more about the world around us and finding the borderline of science and studying the things that science could not explain. And I think that's a pretty good approach for any scientist.

    What makes for a good UFO eyewitness?

    A keen sense of observation is key. A strong linguistic capability is very helpful because people who see UFOs are trying to describe something unheard of in human experience and need to be able to develop a new language. Too often you see people unable to describe what they've seen and experienced simply because there are no words for it, at least not yet.

    I've been haunted by the fear that there is no vast conspiracy guiding the government, only stupidity and bungling. To what extent are you able to believe in the military's ability to orchestrate certain cover-ups, as opposed to just lose things or mishandle data? 

    Hynek made a good distinction: "You can cover up knowing something or you can cover not knowing something." I think government obfuscation is a big part of the story, but for many people that translates into "Oh, they're hiding something from us." One of the first important UFO writers, Donald Keyhoe, was provoked by the fact that nobody in the Air Force would return his calls. His reaction was, "Ah ha, they're covering something up!" Well, no, they just didn't want to talk to you.

    This interview has been lightly edited and condensed for clarity.

    UFO expert accuses co-author of 'deceiving' him with account of sighting during infamous Rendlesham Forest incident

    Peter Robbins has sparked a war of words after revealing he now believes that former US airman Larry Warren's account of the incident near RAF Bentwaters, Suffolk, in 1980, was "not true"

    Peter Robbins has accused Larry Warren of 'deceiving' him

    A UFO expert has become embroiled in a bitter feud with his co-author and one-time friend after accusing him of 'deceiving' him with his 'false' account of the infamous Rendlesham Forest incident.

    Peter Robbins and Larry Warren co-authored 'Left at East Gate: A First-Hand Account of the Bentwater-Woodbridge UFO Incident, its Cover-Up, and Investigation' 30 years ago, but are now at loggerheads.

    US researcher Robbins sparked the row when he accused Warren, a former member of the US Air Force Security Police who now lives in Liverpool, of 'deceiving' him during a radio interview.

    Warren, in turn, blasted Nick Pope, former head of the British government's 'UFO desk', for siding with Robbins. He hit back Pope on Facebook for branding him a liar in an online rant.

    American Warren claims he witnessed a UFO land near RAF Bentwaters, Suffolk, while stationed there with the US Air Force in December 1980.

    Larry Warren has hit back at Robbins' claims 

    He blew the whistle on the so-called Rendlesham Forest incident in 1983 in a News of the World interview and went on to co-write the best-selling book with Robbins, which was published in 1997.

    However, Robbins has now cast serious doubts over the validity of Warren's account.

    Speaking on the Inception Radio Network, Robbins said: "Over the past year, even a bit more, highly specific information has been brought to my attention that has disturbed me tremendously.

    "The encompassed picture is the subjective account of my co-author's story of the events that he was involved in, the events surrounding him, things that don't directly relate to the story but to his life, were not only not accurate but that they were not true.

    "Having worked with him for decades, for having spent several intense years at the beginning we're talking 30 years ago next month when we shook hands, that I would assist him in writing this book. I have a long history with Larry Warren and I felt that after doing the research that he was absolutely good on his word."

    Left At East Gate, by Warren and Robbins, is a bestseller 

    He added: "I felt I had proved enough to myself of Larry's account and details surrounding it that he was telling the truth. And I feel now that in part that was not the case and there was an intent to deceive. To say this has tore me up over the last year is an understatement."

    The Rendlesham incident took place in December 1980 over a series of three nights.

    On December 26, 1980, military personnel at the twin bases of RAF Bentwaters and RAF Woodbridge saw a strange light in Rendlesham Forest, which lies between the two bases.

    Three airmen were sent out to investigate where two of them encountered a small, triangular shaped craft.

    One of them, Jim Penniston, got close enough to touch the side of the object. He and another of the airmen present, John Burroughs, made sketches of the craft for witness statements.

    Two nights later, Deputy Base Commander Lieutenant Colonel Charles Halt and his team then encountered the UFO.

    He said later: "Here I am, a senior official who routinely denies this sort of thing and diligently works to debunk them, and I'm involved in the middle of something I can't explain."

    Despite an MOD investigation the Rendlesham Forest incident remains unexplained, despite theories it was a lighthouse, a meteor shower or a satellite re-entering the Earth's atmosphere and burning up.

    Warren's account differs as he maintains the UFO landed in a farmer's field and was seen by dozens of military personnel including the Base Commander General Gordon Williams.

    He also claims small entities could be seen floating underneath the strange craft, which shone beams of light into the nuclear bunkers at the NATO base at the height of the Cold War.

    Nick Pope, who ran the Ministry of Defence's Secretariat (Airstaff) 2a - dubbed the 'UFO desk', which investigated military sightings but was closed in 2009 due to budget cuts - has backed Robbins' claims.

    Nick Pope, who ran the MoD's 'UFO desk', is siding with Robbins 

    In a post to his 4,980 friends and 13, 852 followers on Facebook, he praised Robbins for "having the courage and integrity to make what was clearly a difficult and painful admission that he'd been taken in by Warren's lies."

    He ended his post by saying: "The verdict from the wider UFO community is clear: the Larry Warren story is officially dead."

    But Warren slammed the ex-MOD man, who now lives in Tucson, Arizona, for "whoring himself out" in a 20-minute Facebook rant.

    He fumed: "I'm aware of your posts on your page, your slander, defamation, whatever you want to call it. You've been out of the UK a long time, you're not really respected here brother. You don't speak for Ufology brother, I can tell you that, you just whore yourself out for just about whatever you can do, that's fine. Works for you."

    He added: "I wrote all my parts in my book and I remain proud of them. I stand by them."

    Warren has engaged in a war of words with Nick Pope on Facebook
     

    Warren also accuses Pope of "abject jealousy" and offers to hand over a UFO courage award he received from UFO Truth Magazine, edited by former police detective Gary Heseltine, at a conference in Holmfirth,Yorkshire, last September.

    He tells Pope: "Your books tanked after months, my book's been in print 20 years and will be print another 100 probably. I've been around longer than you in this and I've seen it all for years."

    Warren challenges Pope to take it off him, saying: "You can have it if you can take it from me. I'll even bring the gift box. You seem to want it because I don't deserve it.

    "You stuck your nose into Rendlesham years ago to the point some morons out there think you were working the MOD desk when they happened - I think you were being beat up on the school yard at that time. So that's impossible but you don't stop that myth."

    He ends his video by saying: "The book is my story, 100 per cent. I've done stuff that you could never do and seen things you'll never see and I'll still be standing tall when you go cock a doodle do ... You were never in the military, you wore a tie somewhere."

    Spacecraft Galileo: To Jupiter and Its Moons

    Galileo was the first spacecraft to examine Jupiter and its moons for an extended period.

    It launched from the payload bay of space shuttle Atlantis in 1989, got some speed boosts by swinging past Earth twice and Venus once, then arrived at Jupiter at last in 1995.

    Circling the solar system's most giant planet for eight years, Galileo beamed back a string of discoveries to Earth despite encountering several mechanical problems.

    It discovered evidence of saltwater below the surfaces of three moons – EuropaGanymede and Callisto – and also got close to the infamous "pizza moon" Io as its volcanoes belched into the atmosphere.

    When Galileo was almost out of fuel, NASA deliberately sent the spacecraft on a suicide plunge into Jupiter on Sept. 21, 2003. The sacrifice, the agency said, was necessary to protect Europa – which likely has a subsurface ocean that could contain life.

    Studying Jupiter from Earth is easier than ever thanks to improvements in imaging technology, making it easier for even amateur astronomers to watch Jupiter's weather and periodic cometary impacts. Along with Galileo's data, this is helping professional astronomers gather data on how gas giants change on the scale of a few years, or decades.

    Still, wider mysteries about Jupiter remain – even as NASA returned to the planet in 2016 with the Juno mission. Some missions are being considered for Jupiter's icy moons in the 2030s, such as NASA's Europa Clipper and the European Space Agency's JUpiter ICy moons Explorer (JUICE)Open questions concerning Jupiter include the global abundance of water in Jupiter, how deep storm features go and where Jupiter's magnetic field comes from.

    Galileo's work at Jupiter has gained even wider implications in the years afterward, because scientists have discovered thousands of exoplanet candidates. Studying Jupiter in our own solar system gives us a window into the formation of these planets outside of our solar system. 

    It's not clear if the solar system shares all of the same "life history" characteristics of other solar systems. For example, some Jupiter-sized extrasolar planets are very close to their parent star, and as such as are called "hot Jupiters." It's possible these planets migrated, but the processes are poorly understood.

    Jupiter was a target of interest for NASA for decades before Galileo's launch. Four spacecraft had flown by the giant planet before – Pioneer 10 and Pioneer 11, and Voyager 1 and Voyager 2.

    Pioneer 10, when it zoomed by the planet in 1973, discovered Jupiter's radiation was far less than scientists had anticipated. This made a long-term mission to Jupiter more feasible, since the spacecraft wouldn't need to be as heavily shielded (making it more expensive to launch.)

    NASA was intrigued by the thought of a Jupiter mission, but the idea went through years of budgetary discussions and management changes, as well as machinations in Congress.

    By 1977, NASA was far enough in its planning to propose a "Jupiter orbiting probe" in its budget, but the idea was thrown out by a congressional appropriations subcommittee with oversight of the agency. That decision was reversed after a massive lobbying effort by the scientific community, and Congress approved the project later that year.

    It would take another 12 years to get Galileo off the ground. There were continual government funding threats to the mission and even the existence of NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, where it was being built. Debates also arose about Galileo's planned launch vehicle. Then, just as the probe was readying for a space shuttle mission, Challenger exploded and killed seven astronauts in 1986, grounding the fleet for two years.

    Named for astronomer Galileo Galilei, the spacecraft launched at last on Oct. 18, 1989, from the payload bay of space shuttle Atlantis. To save on fuel, the probe whipped by Venus once and Earth twice to pick up speed, with the aim to reach Jupiter in 1995.

    Operating missions for the long duration can be a marathon for both humans and spacecraft alike. As components on the spacecraft break down, it's up to the people on the ground to figure out how to resurrect them – or do without them.

    Galileo's most prominent failures were a high-gain antenna that failed to open – threatening the transmissions of data back to Earth – and a data tape recorder that temporarily jammed during the final approach to Jupiter.

    The sticky antenna, shaped somewhat like an umbrella, lay stowed on the spacecraft for nearly two years after launch. NASA determined it might be risky to set it free when Galileo was closer to the sun during its gravity assist by Venus.

    On April 11, 1991, controllers sent a command for Galileo to unfurl the antenna. The motors ran for eight minutes at higher power levels than expected, which indicated there might be a problem. The spacecraft then failed to send a signal to Earth saying the antenna had opened.

    A fault analysis determined that some of the antenna's "ribs" got stuck. Managers did everything from rapidly spinning the spacecraft to exposing the antenna to sunlight, with no luck.

    To get around the problem, they came up with ways to compress data so that Galileo could send back more information to Earth, which helped save the crippled mission.

    NASA now relied on Galileo's on-board data recorder and low-gain transmission antennas to bring information back to Earth. That worked well until the recorder jammed for 15 hours while rewinding on Oct. 11, 1995 – just as the spacecraft was finally closing in on Jupiter.

    Fortunately, NASA found a work-around and was able to resume work a few weeks later. The tape recorder acted up in future years, though, necessitating more fixes.

    "Among the Galileo mission's memorable achievements were the repeated successes of its staff in solving serious technical problems," wrote Michael Meltzer in the NASA publication Mission to Jupiter: A History of the Galileo Project.

    "In each instance, the team attacked potentially mission-ending problems and found ingenious ways to keep the spacecraft operational and productive.

    One of Galileo's first science targets was Comet Shoemaker-Levy 9. Jupiter's gravity had pulled the comet towards the planet and broken it up into more than 20 pieces. When the shards slammed into Jupiter in July 1994, the astronomical community eagerly watched. Galileo was en route to Jupiter at that time and snapped some shots of the hits.

    The spacecraft encountered "interplanetary dust storms" on its way to Jupiter, possibly from particles coming from within the Jovian system. At one point, Galileo was tracking 20,000 dust particles a day, compared to a typical one particle every three days.

    Galileo was still flying at Jupiter when in July 1995, it released a probe to smack the planet's atmosphere in December. When the probe finished its descent, NASA was surprised at its measurements of helium – half of what they expected – and the dryness of the region in which the probe flew.

    "These initial findings are encouraging scientists to rethink their theories of Jupiter's formation and the nature of planetary evolution processes," wrote NASA in a January 1996 press release.

    Galileo itself reached Jupiter on Dec. 7, 1995, beginning its years of circling the planet and its moons.

    These global views of Jupiter's icy moon Europa were captured by NASA's Galileo spacecraft in June 1997. The image on the left shows Europa in natural color, while the right-side image has enhanced colors to bring out subtle color differences to show differences between pure water ice (white and bluish white) and non-ice components (red, brown and yellow spots).

    In the early days, Galileo took a close look at the faint rings of Jupiter to find out how they formed. Data from the spacecraft determined that meteoroids, crashing into small moons around Jupiter, were sending dust up around the planet. Over time, the dust coalesced into rings.

    While Galileo was often called a mission to Jupiter, the spacecraft also made extensive observations of the planet's largest moons.

    It found evidence of a liquid ocean underneath Europa's surface, sparking questions about what sort of life could lie underneath. From watching volcanoes at Io, Galileo's data showed the moon's volcanic activity could be as much as 100 times more than what is seen on Earth. And at Ganymede, Galileo found the first magnetic field around a moon.

    Galileo even made a few side discoveries. When taking pictures of the asteroid Ida, it discovered there was a smaller object orbiting around it. Later called Dactyl, this was the first confirmed satellite of an asteroid.

    In 2003, the aging spacecraft – battling radiation problems and other mechanical issues – was running low on fuel. NASA chose to send Galileo straight into Jupiter rather than leave it in orbit, just in case the spacecraft accidentally crashed into Europa and disrupted possible life there.

    Galileo broke up in Jupiter's atmosphere on Sept. 21, 2003.

    Saturn Solstice: Cassini Gets 'Ringside Seat' to Dramatic Seasonal Changes

    The hexagonal vortex at Saturn's north pole changed color significantly between June 2013 (left) and April 2017 (right), as seen in views from the Cassini spacecraft. For the left image, each frame occurs approximately 130 minutes after the previous one, and for the right, each frame follows after an average of 230 minutes. Researchers combined images taken with the spacecraft's red, green and blue filters for the natural-color views.

    The Cassini spacecraft at Saturn watched over the ringed planet's solstice Wednesday (May 24), accomplishing the main goal of its second extended mission. A solstice occurs on Saturn roughly every 15 Earth years as its seasons change.

    Cassini arrived at Saturn in 2004, and the spacecraft completed its primary mission to study the planet, its rings and its moons by 2008. Its first extended mission, which lasted until 2010, was to observe the system during the planet's equinox, when the sun strikes the rings edge-on and the days are of equal length on the north and south poles. The goal of its second extended mission — a seven-year plan called the Solstice Mission — was to observe all the way up to the north pole's summer solstice (when the days are longest at Saturn's north pole, and shortest at the planet's south pole) and investigate the system's seasonal changes. 

    "During Cassini's Solstice Mission, we have witnessed — up close for the first time — an entire season at Saturn," Linda Spilker, Cassini project scientist at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in California, said in a statement. "The Saturn system undergoes dramatic transitions from winter to summer, and thanks to Cassini, we had a ringside seat." [Epic Cassini Mission to Saturn Gets Awesome Video Treatment]

    A giant storm passed by its own tail after circling Saturn in this true-color Cassini photo, taken Feb. 25, 2011, about 12 weeks after the storm started. Lightning deep in the planet's atmosphere produced significant radio noise during the storm. The storm formed and dispersed over the course of seven months; researchers said this type of Saturn storm happens only about every 30 Earth years.

    During the Solstice Mission, researchers watched a huge storm encircle the planet and disperse over the course of seven months. They watched the hexagonal jet stream surrounding Saturn's north pole change from blue to yellow (except for the very center) over the course of the northern hemisphere's spring.

    Cassini data suggests that the increased sunlight interacts with compounds in the upper atmosphere to form particles called photochemical aerosols, which accumulate into a yellowish haze. The very center may stay blue for one of two reasons, researchers said in an image caption: it hasn't been exposed to sunlight as long as the areas around it because it's at the very top of the planet, or the circulation in the whirling vortex pulls the compounds downward.

    Cassini saw the seasonal changes come over the planet suddenly based on latitude, rather than gradually, the researchers said.

    "Eventually, a whole hemisphere undergoes change, but it gets there by these jumps at specific latitude bands at different times in the season," Robert West, a member of Cassini's imaging team at JPL, said in the statement.

    The solstice's intense sunlight heated Saturn's rings, letting Cassini's instruments better investigate ring particles' composition and the way they clump together. The planet's orientation compared to the sun and Earth, with its rings tipped maximally toward Earth, also meant that Cassini could easily send a radio signal through the densest part of the rings to investigate, according to the statement.

    Storms on Saturn's moon Titan changed as Saturn moved through equinox and toward solstice. In this 2011 image, methane clouds can be seen concentrated near the moon's equator.

    On Saturn's largest moon, Titan, methane storm clouds shifted up from the south toward the moon's equator from 2004 to 2010. Their corresponding shift northward as the solstice approached was surprisingly slow; according to the statement, cloud models had expected the activity to happen years earlier.

    But some action was sudden: In 2013, haze and trace hydrocarbons formerly found only in the north suddenly built up in the Titan's south, indicating that its atmospheric circulation had changed direction due to the changing sun exposure, the statement said.

    "Observations of how the locations of cloud activity change and how long such changes take give us important information about the workings of Titan's atmosphere and also its surface, as rainfall and wind patterns change with the seasons too," Elizabeth Turtle, a researcher on Cassini's imaging team at Johns Hopkins University's Applied Physics Laboratory in Maryland, said in the statement.

    And on Saturn's moon Enceladus, which hosts a subsurface ocean and blasts geysers of material out through its plumes, the main seasonal change was its southern hemisphere's transition to winter darkness. This change let Cassini monitor the moon's temperature more easily, to investigate the intriguing moon.

    Cassini is in the middle of the "Grand Finale" phase of its mission, in which it is diving between Saturn and its rings repeatedly to investigate the planet more closely than ever before. Once it finishes seeing the planet through the change of seasons and charting its moons, rings and surface as deeply as possible, Cassini will plunge into Saturn's atmosphere on Sept. 15. The mission is a collaboration among NASA, the European Space Agency and the Italian Space Agency.

    Surprise! Galaxy's Monster Black Hole Likely Has Huge Neighbor on a Crash Course

    Two monster black holes are apparently on a collision course near the heart of a nearby galaxy, a new study reports.

    Astronomers have spotted an extremely bright object located about 1,500 light-years from the supermassive black hole known to occupy the heart of Cygnus A, an oft-studied galaxy that lies about 800 million light-years from Earth. 

    "We think we've found a second supermassive black hole in this galaxy, indicating that it [the galaxy] has merged with another galaxy in the astronomically recent past," study co-author Chris Carilli, of the National Radio Astronomy Observatory (NRAO) in New Mexico, said in a statement. [Images: Black Holes of the Universe]

    "These two would be one of the closest pairs of supermassive black holes ever discovered, likely themselves to merge in the future," Carilli added.

    The researchers studied Cygnus A in 2015 and 2016 using the Very Large Array (VLA), a system of radio telescopes in New Mexico. These observations revealed the mysterious bright object, which had not appeared in earlier VLA images of Cygnus A from the 1980s and 1990s.

    The completion of a VLA upgrade in 2012 motivated the new imaging campaign, study team members said. 

    "To our surprise, we found a prominent new feature near the galaxy's nucleus that did not appear in any previous published images. This new feature is bright enough that we definitely would have seen it in the earlier images if nothing had changed," co-author Rick Perley, also of the NRAO, said in the same statement. "That means it must have turned on sometime between 1996 and now."

    Additional observations made in 2016 by the radio telescopes of the Very Long Baseline Array, which is also located in New Mexico, detected the object as well. 

    Infrared images captured by NASA's Hubble Space Telescope and Hawaii's Keck Observatory between 1994 and 2002 show a faint object in the same spot within Cygnus A. This mysterious body had originally been interpreted as a clump of stars, but the recent and dramatic brightening is forcing a rethink, study team members said.

    There are only two viable possibilities that could explain the new observations, the researchers added: The object is either a supernova or a supermassive black hole in outburst mode.

    The team favors the black-hole hypothesis, because no known type of supernova could stay so bright for so long, the researchers said. The second supermassive black hole probably became so active after stumbling onto a lot of material to gobble up — perhaps a star that strayed too close, or gas stirred up by the galaxy merger, the researchers said.

    "Further observations will help us resolve some of these questions," said study lead author Daniel Perley, of the Astrophysics Research Institute of Liverpool John Moores University in England (and Rick Perley's son). "In addition, if this is a secondary black hole, we may be able to find others in similar galaxies."

    The new study has been accepted for publication in The Astrophysical Journal.

    Des scientifiques révèlent la signification des lignes de Nazca

    Les lignes de Nazca, située au Pérou actuel, sont des géoglyphes mondialement célèbres. On peut les observer du ciel à plusieurs centaines de mètres de la terre ferme. Si elles sont si spectaculaires, c’est que les civilisations pré-Incas n’avaient ni avions, ni satellites à l’époque où elles ont été tracées. Motherboard rapporte une étude de leur structure en spirale qui permet enfin d’expliquer comment elles ont été construites, et pourquoi. Les scientifiques affirment aujourd’hui qu’elles étaient liées à la ressource la plus précieuse du désert, l’eau.

    Rosa Lasaponara, chercheuse au Conseil National de Recherche de Rome, estime que la civilisation nazca « utilisait l’eau souterraine pour le système d’irrigation de leurs activités agricoles. En ce sens, les Nazcas pensaient pouvoir transformer le désert en jardin ».

    La scientifique a utilisé l’an dernier la technique d’imagerie satellite pour étudier les structures trouvées près des lignes de Nazca : des trous en forme de spirale appelés « puquios ». Grâce à ces images, les chercheurs ont pu observer sous la surface du sol et identifier des canaux souterrains d’eau connectés à ces trous en spirale. Ils se sont ensuite aperçus qu’ils faisaient partie d’un ancien système d’aqueducs.

    Si ces structures appartenaient à un système d’eau aussi sophistiqué, il apparaît évident que les dessins – araignées, lamas, fleurs – étaient tracés près des sources pour remercier les dieux de ce cadeau inestimable. « Il est clair que les puquios et les lignes de Nazca ont la même signification, car l’eau était le seul moyen de survivre dans cet environnement désertique. Les lignes de Nazca sont sûrement un moyen de remercier les dieux pour cela ».

    UFO spotted hovering over Cley Hill near Frome

    The video, taken by a Frome resident, shows a streak of light circling over the National Trust owned land in Corsley

    BY 

    A UFO has been videoed hovering over Cley Hill near Frome.

    The video, taken by a Frome resident, shows a streak of light circling over the National Trust owned land in Corsley.

    Located at the edge of the Longleat Estate in Warminster, Cley Hill has long been thought of as a hot spot for UFOs.

    The resident who took this video believes this streak of light could be one such UFO – although he is a little sceptical.

    Speaking to Somerset Live, he said: “I took this video from my house in Frome last night. It was over the Cley Hill area I think, which is always a hotspot for UFOs”

    “Probably a drone with a fancy flame effect tail or something. It's been spotted a few times locally.”

    For more than 40 years, this lofty hilltop has been a meeting place for UFO spotters, all drawn by talk of lights, flying objects and what have been described as ‘other unidentifiable oddities’.

    Nigel Vile, a local rambler, regularly goes on walks around the area.

    Speaking of the hill, he said: “Some experts have gone as far as to describe the nearby town of Warminster as Britain’s UFO capital on account of a phenomena first encountered in the mid-1960s that became known as the ‘Warminster Thing’.

    “Strange noises were heard in the skies above the town, and an equally strange shimmering light was observed in the vicinity.”

    It’s not just in Warminster that these UFOs are spotted, however. There are many towns around Frome that have similar experiences.

    Nigel said: “More recently, a report in the local press recorded the experiences of a number of people who witnessed a UFO in the skies in June 2001.

    “A slow-moving bright light was spotted at Semington which was buzzed by an aircraft. Later, a number of people in Trowbridge saw an object comprised of three lights in a triangular formation heading west towards Warminster.

    “As one critic noted, however, considering the proximity of the military training area on Salisbury Plain, was it not more likely that the UFOs people have been seeing during the past 50 years or so are more attributable to military activity rather than visits by alien life forms?”

    Cley Hill can be found just off the A36 heading towards Longleat. It is more than 800ft in height and is surrounded by relatively flat agricultural land. At the top of the hill are the remains of a Bronze Age hillfort that encloses two round barrows.

    Superaarde ontdekt op 'steenworp' afstand. Bestaat hier leven?

    Superaarde ontdekt op ‘steenworp’ afstand. Bestaat hier leven?

    De rotsachtige planeet is drie keer zo zwaar als de aarde en gedacht wordt dat er vloeibaar water kan voorkomen.

    De planeet bevindt zich in de bewoonbare zone van een rode dwergster. Onderzoekers hopen de atmosfeer in kaart te brengen om te bepalen of de planeet daadwerkelijk leven kan herbergen.

    Bewoonbare zone

    De superaarde is ontdekt door onderzoekers van het Instituut voor Astrofysica van de Canarische Eilanden (IAC).

    De planeet draait in 14 dagen om zijn moederster, GJ625 (Gliese 625).

    “Omdat GJ625 een relatief koele ster is, bevindt de planeet zich toch in de bewoonbare zone, waar vloeibaar water kan bestaan,” zei Alejandro Suarez Mascareno van het IAC.

    Signaal

    “Of er leven kan bestaan op de planeet, hangt af van het wolkendek in de atmosfeer en de rotatie,” voegde hij toe.

    Aangezien de planeet zich op amper 21 lichtjaar van de aarde bevindt, zou het zelfs mogelijk zijn om er een signaal naartoe te sturen.

    Er is een mogelijkheid dat er nog meer rotsachtige planeten rond GJ625 worden gevonden, aldus onderzoeker Jonay Gonzalez Hernandez.

    Baanbrekende ontdekkingen

    Wetenschappers hebben de laatste maanden verschillende baanbrekende ontdekkingen gedaan van planeten waar buitenaards leven weleens zou kunnen bestaan.

    Vorige maand ontdekten sterrenkundigen ook al een superaarde, op 39 lichtjaar in het sterrenbeeld Cetus. Deze exoplaneet bevindt zich eveneens in de bewoonbare zone.

    NIEUWE GRAANCIRKEL KONDIGT KOMST NIBIRU AAN ( VIDEO )

    We zitten midden in het seizoen voor de graancirkels en vooral in Engeland duiken weer talrijke nieuwe en vooral ook hele interessante graancirkels op. 

    Via een lezer werden wij opmerkzaam gemaakt op een bijzondere nieuwe cirkel, op ook nog eens op een bijzondere locatie. 



    Gisteren schreven wij een artikel over een Braziliaanse politicus die het parlement waarschuwde over de komst van de planeet Nibiru en daarnaast een deel uit de voorspellingen betreffende 23 september 2017. 

    Een datum die zonder enige twijfel wordt voorspeld in het Bijbelse boek Openbaringen die verwijst naar een unieke stand aan de hemel die maar eens in de 7.000 jaar voor komt. 

    In dat artikel kwam ook de volgende afbeelding voor:


    xxx

    Naar aanleiding van dat artikelen bovenstaande afbeelding ontvingen wij het volgende bericht (dank!). 

    In jullie stuk tonen jullie een foto van het Nibiru stelsel (met dat kruis er in), vinden jullie ook niet dat dit op de nieuwe graancirkel lijkt van 25 mei 2017? 

    Dan gaat het om de volgende graancirkel die op 25 mei 2017 is ontdekt in het Engelse plaatsje Alton Barnes in Wiltshire.


    xxx


    xxx


    xxx

    De afbeelding in het artikel van gisteren laat een afbeelding zien van het mini zonnestelsel Nibiru zoals dat eruit zag in 2008, toen deze foto naar verluid werd genomen op Antarctica. 

     

    Net zoals er aan de linkerkant zeven halve bollen voorkomen in de graancirkel, zo komen er op de afbeelding in totaal ook zeven planeten voor en net zoals in de afbeelding vormen deze planeten samen een kruis. 

    Een kruis wordt ook in verband gebracht met Nibiru en het in Engels is de betekenis van dit woord dan ook: Planet of the Crossing. 


    xxx


    xxx

    We kunnen bovenstaande graancirkel dan ook absoluut zien als aankondiging van de planeet Nibiru en misschien is er nog een tweede aanwijzing die tot nu toe, bij ons weten, door niemand is opgemerkt. 

    En dat is wanneer we kijken naar de locatie van de graancirkel, dan ligt deze pal naast het witte paard van Alton Barnes.


    xxx

    En het witte paard is weer bekend uit hetzelfde boek uit de bijbel, Openbaringen waar het voor komt als het eerste paard van de vier ruiters van de Apocalyps. 

    Dat witte paard staat volgens de Wikipedia voor het volgende:


    xxx

    Het lijkt er hier dan ook op dat we met een dubbele aanwijzing hebben te maken: de komst van de planeet Nibiru en de Antichrist die er binnenkort winnend op uit zal trekken in een tijd van valse vrede.

    Billionaire helping develop NASA spacecraft says aliens are HERE - but it's covered up

    A US billionaire entrepreneur, who is working with NASA to create a new expandable spacecraft, has said he believes that intelligent aliens are secretly living on Earth.

    Robert Bigelow, 73, CEO of Bigelow Aerospace, appeared in the latest edition of prime time CBS current affairs show 60 Minutes.

    But, during the programme, which looked at his work on developing the expandable spacecraft, which inflate in space and could one day change how humans live and work in zero gravity, he made the sensational admission.

    He described a UFO encounter his grandparents had on an undisclosed date while driving on a canyon road outside Las Vegas.

    He said: "It really sped up and came right into their face and filled up the entire windshield of the car.

    "And it took off at a right angle and shot off into the distance."

    He told reporter Lara Logan it began an obsession with aliens and is the reason behind his "alien logo" for Bigelow Aerospace.

    He said he had since had his own "close encounters", but did not go into details.

    The business guru also revealed being a subscriber to a widely held conspiracy theory that the US Government, and others across the globe, know that aliens are here on Earth, and even interact with them, but it is all kept top secret from the public amid fears over the impact it would have on religion and the rule of law.

    Bigelow-Aliens

    CBS*GETTY

    Robert Bigelow (pictured) is convinced aliens are here on Earth.

    Ms Logan described it as "the kind of conversation you don't ordinarily have with an accomplished CEO".

    She asked him if he believed in aliens?

    He said: "I'm absolutely convinced. That's all there is to it.

    "There has been and is an existing presence, an ET presence.

    "And I spent millions and millions and millions - I probably spent more as an individual than anybody else in the United States has ever spent on this subject."

    Ms Logan asked: "Is it risky for you to say in public that you believe in UFOs and aliens?

    "You don't worry that some people will say, 'Did you hear that guy, he sounds like he's crazy?'"

    I'm absolutely convinced. That's all there is to it. There has been and is an existing presence, an ET presence.

    Robert Bigelow

    But, he replied: "I don't give a damn. I don't care.

    "It's not going to make a difference. It's not going to change the reality of what I know."

    She said: "Do you imagine that in our space travels we will encounter other forms of intelligent life?"

    Mr Bigelow addded: "You don't have to go anywhere.

    "It's just like right under people's noses."

    The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) confirmed to CBS that for several years, it had referred reports of UFOs and other unexplained phenomena to a company Bigelow owns.

    Ms Logan said: "Robert Bigelow's quirky and he knows it, but when you have as much money as he does, no one - not even NASA - seems to care."

    Stephen Bassett is the executive director of the Paradigm Research Group (PRG), which is campaigning for the US Government to life an alleged "truth embargo" about the existence of aliens.

    He said: "Billionaire Robert Bigelow of Bigelow Aerospace spoke truth to power and finally said publicly what he and hundreds of millions of people around the world already know to be true.

    "And he said it on CBS 60 Minutes Sunday night. There is an extraterrestrial presence engaging the human race.

    "How many military officers, political figures, intelligence agents, scientists, entertainers, and, yes, billionaires have to speak this truth before the investigative journalists in America figure out the biggest news story in history has been right under their noses for 70 years?

    "For decades CBS 60 Minutes has avoided the ET issue with great resolve.

    "It simply would not cover the subject. Better late than never.

    "PRG tips its hat to Robert Bigelow. Thank you.

    "So, hello Elon Musk and Richard Branson. Would you care to say what you really think about the extraterrestrial presence?  Nothing invigorates like speaking truth to power."

    Is Roswell a UFO mecca? New sighting in town preparing for 'alien crash' 70th anniversary

    EXCLUSIVE: A new 'UFO sighting' in the 'alien mecca' Roswell is being investigated as the remote US town gears up to mark the 70th anniversary of the alleged crash of a flying saucer there in 1947.

    Roswell-UFO

    YouTube

    Another UFO sighting in Roswell is being investigated.

    The Mutual UFO Network (MUFON), the world's biggest organisation dedicated to alien and UFO research, is investigating a report from a mother about a bizarre sighting in the New Mexico town.

    In a report to MUFON, the unnamed mother said she was driving with her son at around 9pm.

    She wrote: "Out of the corner of my my eye, I saw a stationary, white and red light, bigger than a star, appear, but I did not pay attention to it right away.

    "It was off the horizon.

    "I could see it easily through my vehicle windshield, then, a few seconds later, another light appeared on the left to the first.

    "That's when I looked directly at them."

    She said after a few more seconds, the first light disappeared, then a third appeared on the left of the second.

    The mum said after about five seconds more the lights vanished, but reappeared in a different location and did the same sequence again.

    She said: "I don't know what these lights were.

    "At the time, I was trying to rationalise them out, but they didn't seem like any kind of aircraft I have seen.

    "I even thought maybe they were fireworks, but I didn't hear any sound, and there was not a trail or explosion.

    I could see it easily through my vehicle windshield, then, a few seconds later, another light appeared on the left to the first. That's when I looked directly at them."

    New witness

    "I pulled over, and stayed parked on the side of the road for another five minutes or so, hoping to see them again.

    "Me and my son were excited, and we were really hoping to see some more. I was hoping to be able to record them,  so i can show someone what I saw. but they didn't come back when we were parked there."

    The case, which happened on April 13, is being investigated locally by MUFON investigators.

    Roswell has been at the heart of the UFO scene since in July 1947 the military sensationally announced in a press release it had found the remains of a crashed flying saucer in the desert nearby.

    But the following day it retracted the statement, saying it was in fact a damaged US Air Force air balloon.

    Witnesses later came forward to say there had been alien bodies within the "crashed craft", which along with the wreckage were then taken to the mysterious top-secret Area 51 military base in Nevada.

    It has gone on to become the biggest UFO conspiracy theory on record.

    The MUFON database holds around 50 alleged UFO sightings connected to Roswell.

    UK alien invasion? Upsurge in UFO sightings rocks THIS county

    A SPATE of UFO sightings is giving a British county a new name for itself – being one of the best places to spot an "alien".

    By Nicholas Bieber 

    The belief that aliens really are visiting Earth is strong in the West Midlands, where regional media have reported an upsurge in sightings.

    A local newspaper reports that there has been 13 UFO sightings in the past four years, including four in the UK's second biggest city Birmingham.

    Ten of the alerts involve objects seen in the sky, mostly at night, while the other three reported seeing lights.

    But as Birmingham Mail reports: "The truth is out there – but don’t ask the police to investigate just yet."

    GETTY

    UFO CAPITAL: The West Mids, known for its many sports clubs, now has a new name for itself

    The publication adds: "Because, perhaps unsurprisingly, none of the calls were investigated by officers."

    Four of the 13 calls came from Birmingham, and the rest from Sandwell, Coventry, Dudley, Solihull and Walsall.

    One sighting came in January 2015, when a mum from Selly Oak, near Birmingham, rushed into her three-year-old son’s bedroom to find him screaming “spaceman” repeatedly.

    She recalls that when later shown a picture of an alien with grey skin, a bulbous head and large eyes – known by researchers as a Grey – her son immediately repeated the same word and began crying.

    There have been numerous sightings of a triangle-shaped UFO have been reported over Dudley, the Mail adds.

    Its most recent appearance was in Quarry Bank in 2011, when a man smoking in his garden saw a mysterious object with flashing lights - which was then chased away by another strange craft.

    In Tipton near Dudley in 2010, two young men saw an “amazing fast-moving and silent craft in the shape of a triangle fly across the sky at a mind-boggling speed.”

    The object has also been spotted hovering over Dudley Castle and the Merry Hill Shopping Centre in Brierley Hill.

    And in April, 2009, builders at West Midland Safari Park were stunned to see a UFO floating right above them.

    Market trader Michele Bardsley filmed mysterious lights over her home in Kingshurst, Solihull in May 2014.

    She said the lights were “just hanging there” as she watched from the back door of her house while having a cigarette break.

    She filmed the lights on her phone and, when the footage was shown on her big TV screen, she could see much more activity among the cluster of UFOs, as some appeared, disappeared and suddenly zoomed.

    And in 2012 an off-duty police officer claimed he witnessed a UFO speeding across the sky near Birmingham Airport.

    The figures, from a Freedom of Information Act request, were originally published on West Midlands Police’s website and covered the years 2013 to 2016.

    Asked how many were investigated, the force told the Mail: “Based on the graded response/log none of the calls were investigated."

    NASA kondigt morgen spectaculaire nieuwe missie aan: ze wil de zon aanraken - HLN.be

     Bron: NASA, ScienceAlert

    © Johns Hopkins University.

    De Amerikaanse ruimtevaartorganisatie NASA gaat morgen een indrukwekkende nieuwe missie voorstellen. Ze wil in de zomer van volgend jaar een sonde lanceren met onze zon als bestemming. Doel is voor de allereerste keer "de zon aan te raken".

    Het is niet de eerste keer dat de NASA een sonde richting zon stuurt. In 1976 werd al eens een toestel gelanceerd dat onze zon tot 43 miljoen kilometer naderde: de Helios 2. Die had voor 370 kilogram aan instrumenten mee en moest zonnewinden en kosmische straling bestuderen. 

    Temperaturen
    De nieuwe missie is nog een flink stuk ambitieuzer. De Solar Probe Plus zal voor de eerste keer in de atmosfeer van de zon binnendringen en de oppervlakte van de zon naderen tot op 6,4 miljoen kilometer. Dat lijkt misschien nog ver, maar op amper negen keer de radius van de zon zal de sonde temperaturen van 1.400 graden moeten weerstaan, terwijl ze haar lading op kamertemperatuur houdt. En dat is goed voor een temperatuur en straling die nog geen enkel ruimtetuig ooit heeft doorstaan.

    Tegelijk moet het toestel de buitenste atmosfeer van de zon bestuderen en antwoorden bieden op enkele eeuwenoude vragen over hoe een ster precies werkt. Met die data hoopt de NASA betere voorspellingen te kunnen maken over zonnestormen, die een impact hebben op het leven op aarde, het werk van astronauten in de ruimte en satellieten. 

    Overleven
    Want we zijn alsmaar meer afhankelijk van technologie en die kan enorme schade oplopen door extreme zonnestormen. Mensen die misschien ooit buiten onze atmosfeer zullen moeten overleven, zullen ook bescherming nodig hebben van zonnestormen en straling. 

    Lancering
    De lancering zal vermoedelijk plaatsvinden in augustus volgend jaar. De sonde zal over een periode van zeven jaar in totaal zeven keer rond de planeet Venus cirkelen, tot ze in een perfecte baan is om de zon zo dicht te naderen als we nooit eerder hebben gedaan.

    © NASA.

    "Het technologische pronkstuk van de missie is het hitteschild", aldus Brad Tucker van de Research School of Astronomy and Astrophysics aan de Australian National University. "Dat is een plaat van 11,5 centimeter dik die bestaat uit koolstof en temperaturen van 1.400 graden aankan." 

    De binnenkant van de sonde - die 1.34 miljard euro kost - zal een speciaal systeem van watercirculatie gebruiken om de instrumenten te beschermen die onder meer de elektrische en magnetische velden van de zon moeten bestuderen, foto's van de zon moet nemen en zonnepartikels moet vangen. 

    Mars
    "De activiteit van de zon begrijpen en het zonneweer voorspellen zijn cruciaal als we de ruimte verder in willen met mensen, denk maar aan bemande missies naar Mars", aldus nog Tucker. "Een beter begrip van hoe zonnepartikels een hoge snelheid krijgen, zal ons ook een beter beeld geven van hoe objecten zich door de ruimte bewegen. En kan ons helpen om ruimtetuigen een hogere snelheid te geven. Zoals het Light Sail-project van de vzw Planetary Society, dat de energie van de zon opvangt met grote reflecterende zeilen en wil gebruiken om snelheid te maken."

    NASA WANTS TO TOUCH THE SUN - BIG ANNOUNCEMENT AHEAD

    NASA is getting ready to make a huge announcement about their first mission to touch the sun.

    ASTRONAUTS WOULD FACE EXTREME TEMPERATURES AND RADIATION LEVELS

    The agency is intending to send a spacecraft much closer to the sun than they have been able to do before. Astronauts will have to face radiation levels along with temperatures that are far more extreme than ever before.

    During the press conference, which NASA is scheduled to hold on Wednesday, they will talk about the Solar Probe Plus; the conference will be streamed live on NASA Television along with shown on the website from 4 pm BST.

     MISSION TO THE SUN BEGINS IN 2018 COLLECTING MECHANISM DATA OF CORONA

    NASA have revealed that the spacecraft is going to set off for the sun during the summer of 2018 and it is going to collect data about the mechanisms that heat up the sun's corona, which is the outermost part of the atmosphere of the sun.

    The corona is said to be many hundreds of times hotter than the surface of the sun, but no one knows why. The temperatures are said to reach around 500,000 degrees Celsius or even higher. It also lies behind the solar wind, which is a stream of constantly charged particles that impact the life on Earth.

    SPACECRAFT WILL BE AROUND FOUR MILLION MILES FROM SUN SURFACE

    NASA said that the spacecraft they are sending up would be placed in orbit around four million miles from the surface of the sun and it is going to have to deal with radiation and heat that no other spacecraft throughout history has had to deal with. It is going to be exploring the outer atmosphere of the sun along with making critical observations that should give some answers to question that are decades old about just how the physics of stars really work.

    The data that comes from the exploration should be able to help with forecasting of big space weather events that may have an impact on life down on Earth along with astronauts and satellites out in space.

    ASTRONAUTS PROTECTED BY CARBON COMPOSITE SHIELD

    The spacecraft is going to have to be able to deal with temperatures that are about 1,400 degrees Celsius and NASA are planning to deal with these temperatures thanks to a carbon composite shield of 11.5cm in thickness.

    The Solar Probe Plus conference is going to be held at the University of Chicago William Eckhardt Research Center Auditorium.

    THIS DECIPHERED MEMO IS THE FINAL PROOF FOR THE ROSWELL ALIEN CRASH

    Ufologists have said that deciphering a top secret memo that was captured in a photograph following the Roswell crash almost 70 years ago, may finally prove that an alien UFO did crash at the site and put an end to one of the most enigmatic mysteries surround UFOs.  

    They say that a part of the memo says ““…And the victims of the wreck…in the ‘Disc’… they will ship…”

    In July 1947 it was alleged that a UFO had crashed in New Roswell Mexico and since this time many theories have come out as what the military attending the crash site actually found.  

    FOR 70 YEARS QUESTIONS HAVE REMAINED UNANSWERED

    Countless questions have been floating around, such as whether they found alien bodies in the wreck, or if it was an actual UFO that had crashed and the government had covered up the whole thing. These are questions that are have been circling around for almost 70 years and up to now have remained unanswered.

    Not analysis has been made of a top secret memo and this may be able to shed some light on what has become one of the biggest and most interesting UFO cases to have ever come out. 

    RELATED ARTICLES

    The crash in Roswell had great weight among popular culture for many decades and it has been the subject in many fiction books along with documentaries. Everything began when many farmers in Roswell New Mexico reported that they had heard loud explosions during the night on July 4 1947.

    PEOPLE OUT WALKING SEE OBJECT WITH LIGHT REFLECTING OFF IT IN DISTANCE

    The following day Gerald Anderson, a father, and his five-year-old son, his brother, and cousin had been walking in a relatively deserted region with the name of Plains of St. Augustine. They saw an object that was in the distance and which had light reflecting off it. This was said to be the alleged UFO that had crashed.

    The book “A History of UFO Crashes” by Kevin Randle and Don Schmitt, said that they researched and during this they found out that military radar had tracked a UFO in the sky over southern New Mexico for four days. On July 4, 1947, the radar suggested that the object had crashed about 30 to 40 miles to the northwest of Roswell.

    Eyewitness William Woody lived to the east of Roswell and he said that he was outside the house along with his father on that night when they saw a brilliant object just plummet to the ground and crash.  

    On 8 July a press release was issued and this was picked up the many news outlets.

    It said that there had been lots of rumors about a flying disc and that the intelligence office of the 509th Bomb group of the Eighth Air Force Roswell Army Air Field had gained possession of a disc thanks to the cooperation between the Sheriff of Chaves County and local ranchers.

    It went on to say that a flying object had crashed close to Roswell on a ranch and the rancher stored the disc until he could get in contact with the Sheriff, as he did not have a telephone. On doing so the Sheriff notified Major Jesse A. Marcel of the 509th Bomb Group Intelligence Office and the disc was picked up from the home of the rancher.

    The photograph that has been of interest to ufologists was taken of a secret memo that is said to show General Roger Ramey at Fort Worth Army Air Field, holding a memo whilst crouching over debris that was said to have been taken from the crash site. This was later said to have been identified by the military as being nothing more than a weather balloon.

    DOCUMENT MAY LEAD TO ANSWERS ABOUT ROSWELL CRASH

    Ufologists think that to solve the long-standing mystery behind the crash at Roswell, people need to get a better look at that document that is being held by General Ramey. Experts have said that the barely readable memo may be proof, finally, that the military did recover a UFO that had crashed in Roswell along with the bodies of aliens.

    The intelligence officer, Jesse Marcel, who was given the job of inspecting and collecting the material, said that he, was told to go along with the story and not to ask any questions.

    It was also claimed later that the debris in the photos taken was a part of the cover-up and that the material from the weather balloon had been used to trick members of the public. The explanation was then accepted by members of the press and public. It was not until the 80s when Marcel came forward that the Roswell incident caught the attention of the public.

    MODERN TECHNOLOGY ALLOWED DECIPHERING OF MEMO

    Thanks to the modern technology of today the experts have managed to decipher some of the Roswell memo that was said to have been seen in the hands of General Ramey. David Rudial said that using technology he managed to zoom in on the memo and this allowed him to decipher around 80% of it.

    It was said that there is a reference to a disc and that part of the memo says ‘and the victims of the wreck’.” It is said that this is finally proof that a disc-shaped UFO crashed at Roswell and was recovered. What happens to be more startling is the fact that it seems to corroborate alien bodies were also found in the wreck.

    US forking out to redesign interceptors for missile defence system

    THE Pentagon is spending big to redesign interceptors for its missile defence system amid a growing threat. But Australia doesn’t have the same luxury.

    THE United States is shoring up its missile defence system in the face of an increasingly belligerent and dangerous North Korea.

    The US government awarded Boeing, the world’s largest aerospace company, $1.48 billion for the development of a “Redesigned Kill Vehicle”, the Pentagon said in a statement last week.

    The extra money brings the total publicly known value of the US government contract with Boeing to a whopping $7.78 billion.

    The White House wants to upgrade the system before Kim Jong-un develops the capabilities to strike the continental US.

    So what is a kill vehicle? Simply put, kill vehicles intercept and destroy long-range ballistic missiles. Launched atop missiles of their own, they use sensors, lenses and rocket thrusters to pick out ballistic warheads and steer into their path.

    When it comes to shooting down ballistic missiles “there is a fundamental difference in the technology — whether you want it to do that inside the atmosphere or in space,” says Dr Stephan Fruehling from the ANU’s Strategic and Defence Studies Centre.

    In the case of medium and long range missiles coming from North Korea, an Exoatmospheric Kill Vehicle (EKV) which intercepts the missile in space would be the technology of choice.

    If a threat is detected by a system of sensors based on land or on warships at sea, then a Ground-Based Interceptor (GBI) will be launched into space using a rocket booster. Once outside the Earth’s atmosphere, operating at the edge of space at hypersonic speeds, the kill vehicle is deployed.

    It seeks out the target using sensors, a sophisticated on-board computer and a rocket motor used for steering in space. It hones in on the missile and destroys it using nothing more than the force of a massive collision.

    Simple, right?

    MULTIPLE FAILURES

    The technology has been around for more than two decades but it hasn’t always worked as intended. In fact it’s been hugely problematic.

    In 2010 a meticulously controlled test of its missile defence technology at a site in Alaska ended in embarrassment for the US military. Despite knowing the exact speed and coordinates of the target, the intercepting kill vehicle completely missed the fake warhead.

    Eleven months later, when the US Missile Defense Agency staged a repeat of the test, it again failed. During a test in July 2013 success once again proved elusive, raising serious questions over missile defence system the Pentagon had poured more than $US40 billion ($A53 billion) dollars into.

    A test conducted last year was announced as a success but it was later revealed that one of the thrusters malfunctioned, causing the interceptor to fly offcourse.

    Dr Stephan Fruehling is a Chief Investigator on the Australian Research Council’s project on nuclear deterrence and was a member of the Australian Government’s external panel of experts on the 2016 Defence White Paper. He says the latest contract awarded to Boeing by the US military is about reinventing a kill vehicle that isn’t wedded to ageing technology.

    The United States deployed an operational GBI system in California and Alaska which was rushed into the field after September 11 under the George W. Bush administration. Essentially the system is situated to intercept missiles from rogue states like North Korean or Iran during their trajectory to the continental United States.

    But much of the system was based on technology from the previous decade, which has been plagued with issued since testing began in 1999.

    “It has a lot of limitations,” Dr Fruehling told news.com.au. “And essentially what the US is stuck with is evolutions of a kill vehicle that remains based on this technology from the 1990s ... and that’s caused a lot of problems that they’ve had with that system.”


    WHY ARE THEY INVESTING IN NEW TECHNOLOGY NOW?

    With North Korea continuing to test nuclear warheads at a feverish pace, the Pentagon is racing to improve its kill vehicle technology.

    “What this is about now is taking a step back and developing a interceptor that addresses those issues,” Dr Fruehling said.

    CALLS FOR AUSTRALIA TO DEVELOP MISSILE SHIELD

    Advances in missile technology made by North Korea — as well as China — in the past few years have taken some western analysts by surprise. And the situation has led to growing calls for Australia to develop its own missile shield.

    Defence specialist Andrew Shearer who previously worked as a national security adviser to Prime Ministers John Howard and Tony Abbott is among those who believe Australia needs to invest in this area.

    He wants the government to examine systems “to defend the continent against the new and growing threat posed by long-range ballistic missiles that could be used to strike or intimidate future Australian governments”.

    “The cumulative effective of these capabilities is to increase the missile threat to ADF forces deployed forward in the (Asia) region, whether independently or as part of an allied coalition,” he told Fairfax Media last month.

    He also warned that over time such weapons could be used to “reduce Australia’s strategic depth and put Australian and allied forces operating from rear bases on the mainland at greater risk.

    “The latter is a new threat but one that will become very real over the next decade,” he said.

    According to Dr Fruehling “there has been an ongoing debate about whether Australia should actually acquire interceptors. But so far that’s not been done.” Largely because it’s not really a threat Australia could thwart on its own with current technology.

    “If you look at the threat to Australia from intercontinental ballistic missile, there’s little that Australia could do to address that on its own,” he said. “If you look at North Korean missiles, for example, you’d have to have a ship with SM3 (a ship-based missile interception system) off the North Korean coast. Or you would have to base ground based interceptors in northern Australia but you would be looking at sensor infrastructure and an investment cost that runs into the dozens of billions, so it’s not really feasible.”

    But that certainly doesn’t mean Australia isn’t engaged in aspects of missile defence systems on the research and development side of things.

    “There’s been some technology co-operation, even going back to the 1990s” with our US ally but these experiments have been “largely in the sensor space in terms of looking at the overall horizon radar and how that could be to detect missiles,” Dr Fruehling said.

    “There is some scope for integrating some Australian sensors into missile defence systems,” he said.

    Famous Hollywood Actor Kurt Russell Admits Witnessing Phoenix Lights UFOs

    kurt-rusell

    Actor Kurt Russell and Chris Prat recently visited the BBC’s The One Show to promote the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 movie. When the host cites a news story involving a pilot’s report of spotting UFOs while on approach at an Arizona airport, Russell comes in and admits that he was indeed that pilot.  Interestingly, the event happened on the same night when mass UFO sightings took place, which is now known as The Phoenix Lights.

    Russel recalled seeing six lights over the airport while on the approach. He said that the lights were on an absolute uniform in a V-shaped. Russell stated that the lights were unidentified and they are six objects, which he reported on his log.

    Since then he never thought about the experience anymore. Two years later, he saw in a television show about UFOs. It was not clear to him at first why he seemed to know the story of Phoenix Lights. The show also mentioned an aviation pilot who reported seeing strange lights on landing. Later, he realised that the pilot was him. He then went to his log books and saw the flight at that time and confirmed it. However, he did not mention anything about UFOs. He just said that they are lights or objects and are unidentified.

    Dozen of UFO Sightings Reported To West Midlands Force

    The truth may be out there, but worried callers may have to wait longer to find out if humans are alone in the universe. The police may not be the right group to call if you happen to experience a UFO sighting.

    In the past four years, twelve UFO sightings have been reported to the West Midlands force. However, the officers investigated none of the calls.

    Ten of the reported sightings involve objects spotted in the sky, mostly at night. Others reported seeing lights.

    The figures were published on the website of West Midlands Police. They are covered from years 2013 to 2016. The data was released through Freedom of Information Act request.

    Four of the calls were from Birmingham, and the rest were from Walsall, Solihull, Dudley, Coventry, and Sandwell.

    When asked the number of investigated reports, the force answered that none of the calls had been studied based on the graded response or log.

    Midlands-ufos

    No other details available on the figures, but the Midlands has been a hotspot of possible unidentified flying object sightings over the past years.

    The Birmingham UFO Group spoke to a mother from Selly Oak in January 2015. The mother recalled having rushed into the bedroom of her three-year-old son after he was screaming, “Spaceman” repeatedly.

    Later, when her son was shown off a picture of a typical Grey alien with grey skin, large eyes, and bulbous head, he immediately repeated the same word and started crying.

    Several sightings of a triangular UFO have been reported over Dudley in the Black Country. In 2011, a man saw a mysterious object with flashing lights while smoking in his garden. The object was then reportedly chased away by another strange craft.

    In 2010 in Tipton, two young men spotted a fast moving but silent triangle-shaped craft flying across the sky at a tremendous speed. The triangle UFO has also been reported hovering above Dudley Castle and the Merry Hill Shopping Centre in Brierley Hill.

    Builders at West Midland Safari Park also claimed to have seen a UFO floating above them in April 2009.

    Mysterious lights were filmed over market trader Michele Bradsley’s home in May 2014 in Kingshurst, Solihull. According to Michele, the lights were hovering as she watched them from the back door while having a cigarette break.

    An off-duty police officer reportedly spotted a UFO speeding across the sky near Birmingham Airport in 2012.

    And in 2010, two fighter jets were recorded on video whizzing above the M5 in the West Midlands, reportedly chasing a UFO.

    Australian Government Investigates Taxpayer Funding of UFO Group

    UFOS Auustralia

    An urgent investigation was launched by social services minister in Australia to determine how a UFO group get thousands of dollars in funds from taxpayers. Christian Porter described being in a “beam me up, Scotty” moment after discovering that his department approved nearly 6,000 Australian dollars or around £3,400 of grants for the Tuggerah Lakes UFO Group in the New South Wales central coast since 2013.

    Mr Porter said that there’s no doubt they are very nice people, and lots of volunteers are getting something out of it, but it did not seem to pass a common sense test looking it from his perspective, representing taxpayers.

    Mr Porter revealed that he asked the department to hold the fund transmission until they could give him a little more information on what the group is all about or what the group does specifically.

    The Labour government initially provided the funding to assist with the cost of transporting volunteers with a disability.

    According to the official records, the department approved AUD 2,645 in the 2017 volunteer grant program for the UFO group.

    Under Labour government, Tuggerah Lakes UFO Group got AUD 2,994 in 2013.

    The UFO group’s Facebook has over a thousand followers. According to their Facebook, the group wants to share information on UFO and related topics, support and encourage like-minded people and promote disclosure on UFO.

    NASA is setting its sights on getting a much closer, deeper look at Jupiter’s tantalizing moon, Europa, and the mysterious ocean hidden beneath its icy crust. With two orbital missions already in the works, by NASA and the European Space Agency, NASA is looking further into the future toward a possible mission to put a robot on the surface.

    Europa’s ocean, which may lie under only a few miles of ice—perhaps only a few hundred feet in some places—may be as deep as 30 miles, and contains more water than in all of Earth’s oceans. With the possibility of some form of hydrothermal vents supplying heat and life-supporting chemicals on the ocean’s floor, like those on Earth, the tiny moon has become one of the hottest subjects in the search for extraterrestrial life in the solar system.

    In advance of issuing a call for formal proposals, NASA is priming the scientific community to begin thinking about what set of scientific instruments should be included on a lander. Ultimately, ten proposals will be selected to proceed to a competitive concept study, which carries funding of $1.5 million for each selected group, who will have a year to submit their technical proposals.

    Europa’s ocean

    Past spacecraft, including NASA’s Voyager and Galileo, gathered the first evidence leading to the discovery of Europa’s ocean: patterns in the cracks of the moon’s icy crust interpreted as ice sheets floating on water, as well as disturbances in Jupiter’s magnetic field in Europa’s vicinity that can be explained by the presence of a salty ocean.

    Most recently, the Hubble Space Telescope detected plumes of water vapor erupting from Europa’s surface, further wetting scientists’ appetites to explore the liquid realm beneath.

    Europa was discovered by Galileo in January 1610, along with three other large moons, the “Galileans.” Through a small telescope like Galileo’s, they appear as mere star-like dots, and for over 300 years that’s about all that humans could see of them. Only when the first robotic probe, Pioneer 10, passed through the Jupiter system did we get a closer picture.

    Envisioning the lander

    How would you design a robot to probe Europa’s deep dark waters from a landing site on the icy surface above? That’s the primary framing question for any competitive design concept. NASA will only select proposals that address specific scientific goals—namely, to look for evidence of life and a habitable environment in Europa’s ocean.

    What instruments would you include? Ground-penetrating radar to survey structures in the moon’s crust? Chemical detectors to sniff for water vapor and other volatiles that may seep up from the ocean? Motion sensors to measure the movements of floating ice? Sensitive microphones to listen for any sounds penetrating the ice from below? NASA has issued just the right challenge to get imaginations churning….

    It’s not technically feasible at present to deliver a probe directly to the waters under Europa’s ice crust—let alone to the ocean floor tens of miles below that—so a lander will need to do its job without direct visual inspection. Pictures of Europan jellyfish swimming around would be nice—but we can’t get a camera down there yet. It’s difficult enough exploring the depths of Earth’s oceans….

    What else does the lander need?

    The final design of the lander ultimately will comprise more than the scientific instruments it carries. There will be plenty of engineering challenges and considerations further along in the design process.

    Simply landing the probe will require some serious thought. Unlike landings on Venus, Mars, and Saturn’s moon Titan, parachutes are not an option since Europa has no atmosphere to help slow a lander down. Some form of rocket-powered descent and soft touchdown might work.

    Deciding where to land requires planning as well. A landing site where the ice is thin and the waters relatively near the surface could make it easier for the lander to measure properties of the ocean, but we know very little about the nature of Europa’s surface terrain. Other than a few pictures taken by passing spacecraft, Europa is mostly unexplored. Planners should get some guidance from surveys by upcoming missions–NASA’s Europa Clipper and ESA’s “JUICE“—but right now the icy moon is terra incognita.

    Another design consideration is a lander’s end-of-mission disposition. The nuclear-powered Galileo spacecraft was deliberately incinerated in Jupiter’s atmosphere at the close of its mission, to prevent it from crashing into a moon like Europa and contaminating a potentially life-bearing environment. Even if the lander doesn’t carry nuclear power cells, an outer space version of environmental “green” responsibility is a requirement.

    Bigelow Aerospace founder says commercial world will lead in space

    NASA and Las Vegas entrepreneur have partnered on a technology that could change how humans live and work in space

    There's a new space race and it's not between the U.S. and Russia. It's between private companies and it's attracted multimillionaires and billionaires, like Elon Musk and Jeff Bezos. A less likely player is Las Vegas real-estate tycoon, Robert Bigelow, who, at 73, is making the biggest gamble of his life -- not on rockets -- but on expandable spacecraft, large, lightweight structures that inflate in space, a technology that could dramatically change how humans live and work in zero gravity.

    Robert Bigelow

     CBS NEWS

    NASA has partnered with Robert Bigelow, who's an unconventional figure in the aerospace world. He's more at home on the Vegas strip than at America's space agency, and he's obsessed with aliens and UFOs. In the spring of last year, he and NASA carried out an historic test to prove his high-flying technology is ready to support humans in space.

    When Elon Musk's SpaceX rocket roared into the skies above Cape Canaveral, it was on a mission for NASA, carrying nearly 7,000 pounds of cargo to the International Space Station -- food, supplies and Robert Bigelow's expandable spacecraft.

    Robert Bigelow: Flying to the International Space Station is a really big deal. It's an experimental spacecraft, which is a big deal. We don't know how it's gonna behave for sure.

    Lara Logan: Does that make you nervous?

    Robert Bigelow: I'm nervous because I'm a nervous person, I think, and I don't necessarily always expect things to go right.

    olympus-01.jpg

    The Olympus

     CBS NEWS

    Bigelow's inflatable was packed inside the rocket's cargo capsule, known as Dragon, which you see here making it's way to the space station. We sped up this video from NASA because it took two days to get there.

    It was moved into place, then just over a month later, we joined Bigelow at Houston Mission Control to see it inflate, the last critical step. If it worked, it would make history, the first expandable structure for humans in space.

    Lara Logan: So what is it like for you this moment watching this happen?

    Robert Bigelow: Severe curiosity as to what's gonna happen next.

    Some 250 miles above the Earth, NASA astronaut Jeff Williams injected air. It was supposed to last about an hour. But took two tries over two days.

    Finally, it worked. In this time-lapse video, you're seeing it expand in seconds. Close to $300 million and 16 years to get here. But for Bigelow, it was just a beginning.

    Inside the Olympus

     CBS NEWS

    Under 80-foot ceilings at his company in Las Vegas, he showed us his next generation plans for outer space. He calls this the Olympus, a mansion for the skies. It's so large the rocket powerful enough to launch it is still years away.

    Lara Logan: Is there anything this big that astronauts are working in today?

    Robert Bigelow: No, nothing even remotely close.

    Bigelow said he can turn this into anything a client wants -- a first-ever orbiting hotel, hospital or inflatable research facility. The B330 is smaller than the Olympus. This is what it would look like if it were used as a space station.

    Lara Logan: This can function on its own?

    Robert Bigelow: Well, it can function as a standalone destination because it has all the facilities that it would take to keep people alive.

    b-330.jpg

    The B330

     CBS NEWS

    For countries hoping to make their mark in space, Bigelow said this offers an affordable way in. Private industry, he believes, is becoming more dominant in developing space.

    Robert Bigelow: NASA and government still has a role because it is still in a sort of embryonic stage. And there will come a time when it's not necessary at all.  And the commercial world will absolutely be the leader for everything in space.

    Lara Logan: What about the idea of national pride and what we do as nations. Neil Armstrong walking on the moon. He didn't do that for a private company. He did that for the United States of America and it meant something.

    "...the commercial world will absolutely be the leader for everything in space."

    Robert Bigelow: You bet it did. And that created a period of inspiration that hasn't been matched ever since. So now we're looking for a new era that says, "All right, how can we now shape this to where it's more accessible for a lot more folks at a lot less cost and still have safety and reliability at the same time?"

    With no formal training in science or engineering, Robert Bigelow created an aerospace company with scientists and engineers that's achieved what no one else in the industry has done. His expandable spacecraft are the first and only alternative to the metal structures that have housed every astronaut in space for over half a century.

    For Bigelow, it all began with growing up in a time of nuclear tests. As a young boy, he would watch the skies over Nevada light up with the bursts of atomic bombs.

    Robert Bigelow: Witnessing those explosions in the 50s and 60s, you weren't aware of the ultimate ramifications of those kinds of things but there was a real strong feeling of energy and a secretiveness and so forth and it was cool.

    Armstrong: "That's one small step for man…"

    Later, he watched Neil Armstrong take the first steps on the moon, a moment in history he said still inspires him.

    Robert Bigelow: The approach wasn't lightening fast…

    But on this canyon road just outside Las Vegas, Robert Bigelow's story takes a turn that some may find, to put it lightly, improbable. He told us this is where his grandparents had a close encounter with a UFO.

    Robert Bigelow: It really sped up and came right into their face and filled up the entire windshield of the car. And it took off at a right angle and shot off into the distance.

     CBS NEWS

    The story sparked his obsession, and explains the alien looking out from the side of Bigelow Aerospace.  And it made for the kind of conversation you don't ordinarily have with an accomplished CEO.

    Lara Logan: Do you believe in aliens?

    Robert Bigelow: I'm absolutely convinced. That's all there is to it.

    Lara Logan: Do you also believe that UFOs have come to Earth?

    Robert Bigelow: There has been and is an existing presence, an ET presence. And I spent millions and millions and millions -- I probably spent more as an individual than anybody else in the United States has ever spent on this subject.  

    Lara Logan: Is it risky for you to say in public that you believe in UFOs and aliens?

    Robert Bigelow: I don't give a damn. I don't care.

    Lara Logan: You don't worry that some people will say, "Did you hear that guy, he sounds like he's crazy"?

    Robert Bigelow: I don't care.

    Lara Logan: Why not?

    Robert Bigelow: It's not gonna make a difference. It's not gonna change reality of what I know.

    Lara Logan: Do you imagine that in our space travels we will encounter other forms of intelligent life?

    Robert Bigelow: You don't have to go anywhere.

    Lara Logan: You can find it here? Where exactly?

    Robert Bigelow: It's just like right under people's noses. Oh my gosh. Wow.

    The FAA confirmed to us that for years, it referred reports of UFOs and other unexplained phenomena to a company Bigelow owns. He told us he's had his own close encounters, but declined to go into detail.   

    Robert Bigelow's quirky and he knows it, but when you have as much money as he does, no one -- not even NASA -- seems to care.

    He bought the idea for his inflatable technology from the space agency. NASA had been working on this since the early 1960s -- but when Congress killed its program in 2000, Bigelow seized the opportunity and invested tens of millions of dollars to advance NASA's original idea.

    It took him just six years to launch the first expandable spacecraft into orbit. His second followed a year later. But those were never meant for humans.

    At that time, Bigelow was still trying to prove his inflatable structures would survive in space. A decade later, with both still circling the Earth intact, NASA felt the technology was ready to be tested for humans. Bigelow still monitors these spacecraft from his own mission control in Las Vegas.

    Robert Bigelow made his fortune with a low-budget chain of rental apartments called Budget Suites of America.

     CBS NEWS

    Robert Bigelow didn't start out a rich man. He made his fortune not far from the Vegas strip, with this -- a chain of low budget, long-stay rental apartments called Budget Suites of America. In a time of glitzy high rises, he focused on creating homes for the city's temporary workers. And it paid off. Today, he has 19 of these across three states.

    Lara Logan: And made you how much money?

    Robert Bigelow: Enough to support the aerospace indulgence and Bigelow Aerospace.

    Lara Logan: Well, "aerospace indulgence" is a big term. So do you want to put a figure on that?

    Robert Bigelow: We're approaching 290 million.

    Lara Logan: Of your own money?

    Robert Bigelow: Oh, yea yea.

    Lara Logan: So for a man who has had extraordinary success in the business world--

    Robert Bigelow: Some some.

    Lara Logan: This space business is financially the worst investment you've ever made?

    Robert Bigelow: It's atrocious. I mean, we are not in control of our own destiny.

    Lara Logan: Who is in control of your destiny?

    Robert Bigelow: We're hostage to what happens with transportation, space transportation.

    Thanks to innovators like Elon Musk and Jeff Bezos, Bigelow told us reusable rockets -- like this one you see sticking a perfect landing after launching his inflatable -- are making routine transportation a real possibility in the next decade.

    When Robert Bigelow's inflatable structure was added by NASA to the International Space Station, humans had never been inside one in space. This test would be the first time. And astronaut Jeff Williams, the first American to experience it.

    The interior only has sensors, and for two years, NASA will use them to monitor how this holds up to solar radiation and extreme temperatures.

    Lara Logan: How far are you from us right now?

    Jeff Williams: Well currently we're over Libya as I recall, but when we started this conversation, I think we were probably over the Atlantic Ocean.

    From Bigelow's Mission Control, NASA connected us with Jeff Williams on the space station. As we spoke to him about Bigelow's inflatable room, he was orbiting the Earth at nearly five miles a second.

    Jeff Williams: I was very excited to be part of it and to be part of something new.

    Lara Logan: And how is it holding up?

    Jeff Williams: Oh, it's holding up well. It was a little bit cool, and that was expected. Cooler than the air here, but not overly cold, and had that new car smell that you would expect. And it was very quiet, too.

    Lara Logan: What do you think about men like Mr. Bigelow, people with deep pockets, private citizens getting involved in your world, in the world of space?

    Jeff Williams: Oh, I'd say anybody that has the means to do exploration and is willing to jump in the game, more power to them. Private enterprise is trying to open up economic doors to space exploration and everybody will benefit from that.

    The Coventry UFO 'sightings' reported to police - from bright lights to glowing rockets

    Coventry has been a hotbed of potential UFO sightings over the years

    BY 

    Twelve UFO sightings have been reported to West Midlands Police in the past four years, new figures show.

    But the worried callers will have to wait a while longer to find out if we really are alone in the universe because none of the calls were investigated by officers.

    Ten of the alerts involved objects seen in the sky, mostly at night, the Birmingham Mail reports.

    Three reported seeing lights.

    The figures, from a Freedom of Information Act request, were published on West Midlands Police’s website and covered the years 2013 to 2016.

    Four calls came from Birmingham, and the rest from Sandwell, Coventry, Dudley, Solihull and Walsall.

    Asked how many were investigated, the force said: “Based on the graded response/log none of the calls were investigated”.

    No other details were available but Coventry has been a hotbed of potential UFO sightings over the years.

    They range from a sighting of a massive tin-can shaped object with gold round the middle, to a glowing rocket steering upwards into the sky.

    Many of the sightings come with video and pictures taken at the time.

    And while they may not provide CONCLUSIVE proof of extraterrestrial intelligence targeting, the descriptions are certainly intriguing.

    The most recent ‘close encounter’ came on August 22 at the University of Warwick.

    The witness said: “I went for a short walk around 8.15pm behind my accommodation, i.e. Heronbank West, Heronbank, University of Warwick.

    While coming back, I happened to look at this glowing (because of the flame) cylindrical type object in the sky, steering upwards in a somewhat fast motion.

    “I was able to take a picture of it. But when I started taking a video, my phones battery died. My first reaction to that was ‘clearly it’s not a shooting star’.

    “It could be a rocket launch though. After gazing at it for about a minute, I walked inside my accommodation building.”

    On May 13, another spotter saw seven circular objects above the city through binoculars - they then drew them out for Mufon.

    Another sighting - again in Coventry - on March 15 involved ‘two bright lights which were ellipses initially but became circles’.

    The witness reported: “I was standing outside work having just finished a shift. A storm had just passed over and a beautiful rainbow was showing. I was taking photos of the rainbow and didn’t actually notice the lights in the frame.

    “I took a series of photos to catch as much of the rainbow as I could but after transferring to a memory chip I put them away and forgot about them. I was sorting through old memory chips a few days ago when I found these photos.

    “The first one showed a couple of ellipses with what appeared to be a solid centre. This was at 15.24 GMT. The next photo showed two large balls of light low to the ground and apparently in front of the lamp post.

    “The time of the photo was also 15.24 so the lights had moved very quickly.”

    Unexplained Roaring Noises Terrify Nottingham, England

    Residents of Nottingham, England were awoken over the weekend to a mysterious noise which seemed to emanate directly from the sky. The sound occurred throughout the night and early morning hours on May 27 and 28 and could be heard throughout the city center and surrounding suburbs. Mystified townsfolk described the sound as a “roaring” or “whooshing” sound and took to Twitter to express their shock and awe:

    It sounds like the war of the worlds in Nottingham at the moment. Unknown catastrophically loud noise every two minutes.

    Nottingham local Hayley Compton told the BBC that the noise was similar to a giant flame in the sky:

    For the last two mornings, I’ve heard a series of noises outside my house in Wollaton which sounds like a giant blowtorch. We went outside and it was really loud, I looked up into the sky expecting either to see flames or a very close aircraft of some sort.

    Nottingham police received dozens of similar reports about the noises but have yet to identify their source. On Reddit’s Nottingham subreddit, users began speculating what the source of the sound might be. Some of the more popular theories included UFOs, (naturally), noises generated by industrial machines at nearby factories, or even a hot air balloon. However, the frequency of the noise and timing would suggest that it’s probably not the latter.

    Although nighttime ballooning sounds pretty fun.

    There are a few factories nearby, but so far none have come forward as the source of the sounds.

    Meanwhile, similar noises were heard around the same time in nearby Derbyshire. With all of the unexplained and strange aerial phenomena being reported in the UK lately, these noises shouldn’t be taken lightly. Sure, there’s likely a prosaic origin of these sightings and sounds involving heavy industry, military testing or the like, but for now, these occurrences all add up to one big English mystery.

    Face to face ontmoetingen met aliens zijn een feit. Lees dit bizarre verhaal van een betrouwbare bron

    De Canadese oud-minister van Defensie Paul Hellyer probeert mensen ervan bewust te maken dat we niet alleen zijn en dat er sprake is van een buitenaardse aanwezigheid.

    Of zoals voormalig astronaut en Princeton-professor wijlen Brian O’Leary zei: “Er is overvloedig bewijs dat we worden bezocht.”

    Waarom worden de uitspraken van dergelijke prominente figuren niet breed uitgemeten in de media?

    Eerste

    Er zijn inmiddels vele honderden hooggeplaatste militairen, politici en wetenschappers geweest die hetzelfde hebben gezegd als Hellyer.

    In 1989 haalden UFO-landingen het NOS Journaal nog. Daarna werden mensen die in UFO’s geloven plotseling gekkies genoemd. Wat is er veranderd?

    Hellyer was de eerste minister van een zittende regering van een G8-land die zich openlijk uitsprak over het onderwerp. In onderstaand interview met Motherboard doet hij zijn verhaal.

    ‘Elk woord klopt’

    De oud-minister was in eerste instantie sceptisch, tot hij het boek The Day After Roswell van kolonel Philip Corso besloot te lezen.

    Hellyer nam contact op met een gepensioneerde generaal van de Amerikaanse luchtmacht om te kijken of het boek echt was of op fictie berustte.

    De niet met naam genoemde generaal zei: “Elk woord klopt en meer nog dan dat.”

    Face to face ontmoetingen

    Hij zei dat er face to face ontmoetingen zijn geweest tussen Amerikaanse functionarissen en buitenaardsen uit andere zonnestelsels.

    De website van oud-minister Hellyer vind je hier.

    Vier bijzondere graancirkels ontdekt. Kijk hier naar deze unieke dronevideo

    In Groot-Brittannië zijn vorige week vier indrukwekkende graancirkels verschenen. De eerste werd op 21 mei ontdekt in het graafschap Wiltshire.

    De formaties zijn door Matthew Williams van Crop Circle Connector, een website die melding maakt van graancirkels van over de hele wereld, in beeld gebracht met een drone.

    De eerste formatie lijkt een zonsverduistering uit te beelden en vertoont opvallende gelijkenissen met een graancirkel uit 2004 die hetzelfde fenomeen leek te tonen, schrijft Coast to Coast AM.

    Pendel

    De nieuwe formatie is net als de graancirkel in 2004 precies drie maanden voor een zonsverduistering verschenen, aldus de site.

    De tweede formatie werd op 22 mei ontdekt in Dorset en de derde, die op 25 mei verscheen, lijkt op patronen die eerder dit jaar zijn gevonden. De vierde graancirkel werd ook op 25 mei gemeld.

    Bekijk hieronder de derde formatie:

    Tijdreizen

    Horace Drew, die jarenlang voor het Australische wetenschappelijke instituut CSIRO werkte, doet al bijna een kwart eeuw onderzoek naar graancirkels.

    Dr. Drew claimt dat graancirkels worden gemaakt door aliens of tijdreizigers.

    Volgens hem zijn een aantal van deze formaties echt en bevatten ze puzzels die kunnen worden gelinkt aan tijdreizen en buitenaards leven.

    Drew zei dat aliens of tijdreizigers graancirkels achterlaten op aarde als boodschappen ‘voor ons of voor zichzelf’.

    Mysterieuze planeet TRAPPIST-1 onthult wat van zijn geheimen - HLN.be

    Bron: Belga

    Wetenschappers wisten tot voor kort weinig over de exoplaneet TRAPPIST-1. 

    © afp.

    De buitenste planeet van het stelsel TRAPPIST-1, dat mogelijk leven kan herbergen, draait in negentien dagen rond haar moederster. Dit heeft een internationaal team van wetenschappers, ook van de Luikse universiteit, berekend.

    Begin dit jaar stond de wetenschappelijke wereld in rep en roer toen bleek dat er rond dwergster TRAPPIST-1, veertig lichtjaar van ons, zelfs zeven aardeachtige planeten wentelen, een groter aantal dan elders (buiten ons stelsel). Zes daarvan hebben de omvang van onze aarde, en drie een vergelijkbare temperatuur. 

    Van zes van de zeven was de tijd die zij nodig hebben om een volledige omloop rond de ster te maken, reeds bekend. Maar volgens een communiqué van de Universiteit van Bern bleef men in het ongewisse over de omlooptijd van de buitenste, TRAPPIST-1H.

    Maar onlangs gaf het Amerikaanse ruimtevaartbureau NASA ruwe data vrij van de expoplanetenjager die de Keplertelescoop is. Onder meer een team van de universiteit van Bern en collega's van onder andere de Universiteit van Luik, stortten zich razendsnel op de tussen december en maart vergaarde gegevens.

    -100 graden
    Niettegenstaande de Kepler niet werkt zoals het hoort, slaagden de wetenschappers er toch snel in de data te ijken. Er was maar één resultaat mogelijk: TRAPPIST-1H draait in 18,764 dagen rond de ster die veel kleiner en kouder is dan onze zon. Terwijl de exoplaneet een iets kleinere straal dan de aarde heeft, bedraagt de temperatuur minus 100 graden.

    Voorts bleek, volgens een publicatie in Nature Astronomy, dat de zeven planeten als een "halsketting" rond de ster zijn gealigneerd, en interageren. De dwergster zelf draait in 3,3 dagen rond haar as, en lijkt iets ouder dan voorheen aangenomen.

    TRAPPIST is een programma dat op gang is gebracht door Michaël Gillon van de Universiteit van Luik (ULG) en Didier Queloz van de Universiteit van Genève. Gillon behoorde ook tot het Luikse team dat de Kepler-data uitwerkte, samen met Catarina Fernandes, Valérie Van Grootel, Emmanuël Jehin en Pierre Magain.

    Een grote openstaande vraag is de samenstelling van de atmosfeer van de planeten rond TRAPPIST-1. Een antwoord kan komen van de opvolger van de Hubble-telescoop, de James Webb, die na jarenlang uitstel eind volgend jaar de ruimte zou ingaan. Dan kan ook duidelijk worden of er op de planeten water- of andere moleculen zijn die leven mogelijk maken.

    THERE HAD IN FACT BEEN FACE TO FACE MEETINGS WITH EXTRATERRESTRIALS FROM OTHER STAR SYSTEMS

    The former Minister of Defence in Canada, Paul Hellyer, has come forward to talk about the fact that aliens do exist and humans are not alone. He also went on to say that the nations on Earth have identified an extra-terrestrial presence.

    RELIABLE SOURCE REVEALS THERE HAVE BEEN ALIEN FACE TO FACE MEETINGS

    It may be easy to scoff at the words of the Minister of Defence in Canada and class him as being plain crazy. However, Dr. Brian O`Leary, the ex-astronaut, and physics professor have made it clear in the past that there is lots of evidence of aliens having visited Earth.

    HIGH RANKING PEOPLE, MILITARY, POLICE, AND ACADEMIA KNOW ABOUT ALIEN EXISTENCE

    The doctor went on to say that many high ranking people in the police, military, and academia are coming forward to reveal that aliens do in fact exist. Hellyer is not alone in his thinking and beliefs; he is among the many who roam among the highest levels of defense and government.

    A five-star admiral of the Royal Navy and Chairman of the NATO Military Committee said that there is a serious possibility that Earth has been visited for many years by people from other planets and it should not be the subject of rubbishing by tabloid newspapers, but it should be scientifically investigated.

    HELLYER IS FIRST AMONG G8 COUNTRIES TO SPEAK OUT ABOUT ALIENS

    Hellyer held an interview recently, and he gave details about personal happenings that had involved him along with his nephew. Bear in mind that many high ranking individuals from Defence Ministers to Presidents and all made statements about aliens that have been eye opening. Hellyer is among the first to have spoken up from the G8 countries of the cabinet.  

    He talked about a conversation that he had with his nephew about the book along with having another conversation with a general of the United States Air Force, in which the general had said that every word of the existence of aliens was true.

    OFFICIALS OF US HAD MEETINGS WITH ALIENS FROM OTHER STAR SYSTEMS

    Hellyer said that he had called the general on the phone and even before he had been able to identify himself and greet the general, he had said that every word was true and more. He went on to say that there had even been meetings between officials of the United States and aliens from other star systems.

    More and more credible people are now coming forward to spread the word to the public, they are not talking about alien movies, they are talking about the real world, a world in which aliens really do exist and have existed on Earth for some time.

    CHINA JUST RELEASED NEVER-BEFORE-SEEN HD IMAGES OF THEIR 2013 MOON LANDING

    Chinese lunar mission has discovered new form of space rock.

    The Chinese space agency’s Chang’e 3 lander have made an incredible discovery on the surface of the Moon. In its travels across the lunar surface, the highly advanced lunar lander managed to discover a new type of moon rock which has never been accessed by human beings before. Furthermore, the high-resolution camera capabilities of the lander have managed to capture thousands of astonishing images of the Moon that allows people on Earth to see the natural satellite in its full, bleak glory.  

    The Chinese launched the Chang’e 3 lander in 2013 and directed it to land in the region known as the Mare Imbrium on the lunar surface. This area was of particular interest to the Chinese scientists as it is believed that water could have once existed in this region of the Moon. The lander explored the region and took thousands of impressive images. Despite the fact that the images were all amassed during 2013, they were not released to the general public until 2015.

    Since the images were released, Emily Lakdawalla of the Planetary Society has been meticulously trawling through the immense haul of images in order to present them to the general public in an easily accessible and downloadable way. She said that the Chinese were fairly open about sharing their data from the lunar mission and it was easy for her to access the images as they use the same system as NASA and the European Space Agency. However, she said that her task was made quite difficult as she cannot read Mandarin.

    The images have generated a great deal of excitement in the scientific community, particularly the ones which depict the newly discovered form of space rock which was not discovered by American or Russian missions to the lunar surface. “China is trying to reach the top tier and show that they’re a major space power, ” said Kevin Pollpete who is a Defense Group, Inc. Analyst affiliated with the University of California in San Diego. “They’re also contributing real knowledge about the moon that we haven’t been able to get before.”

    The Chang’e 3 lander is still functional today, but the Chinese have even more ambitious plans when it comes to exploring the lunar surface. In 2017, the Chinese plan to send another lander to the Moon which will collect and return lunar samples to Earth. It is hoped that these missions will expand the bank of knowledge regarding the geology of the Moon. It is also hoped that the missions may even give scientists an inkling about the origin of the natural satellite which has always been a great scientific mystery.

    STRANGE STATUE DEPICTING AN ALIEN UNEARTHED IN MEXICO

    One ancient civilization that is the most fascinating is found within the American Continent, and it has been from here that some myths and legends that are the most mysterious and strange have come from.

    The Mayan civilization was well known for the huge cities that they built along with erecting some structures of monolithic proportions back in ancient times. A lot of the treasures left behind by the Mayans still hold a great deal of mystery.

    MAYAN STATUE SHOWS ALIEN HEAD LOOKS LIKE GREY ALIEN

    One of the most recent of findings has been that of an ancient statute that has the looks of an Alien humanoid that is holding a human head. This strange statue was found by public workers in Mexico in the Maxtaloyan community while improvement work was being undertaken. The statue seems to show a snake that is surrounding a figure and at the top, there is a head that looks to be the face of a Grey alien or perhaps a reptilian entity.

    RELATED ARTICLES

    It was said that perhaps the statue is a representation of a God that the Mayans worshiped during that time, perhaps with an origin that is extra-terrestrial and that the head may be a symbol of aliens being above humans as creators.

    STATUE DATES BACK TO MAYAN CULTURE DURING 400AD

    The discovery of the statue has been said to be an important piece in the Mayan culture, and it is thought that it perhaps dates back to 400AD. The head of the statue was pointed out to have oval eyes, and the statue has four inlays of semi-precious stones, including jade, obsidian, turquoise and shell. The discovery of the statue is said to be a fundamental sample of culture from the Mayan period. It has been suggested that more pieces of the same type may be found in the region during construction works and experts are going to be monitoring the work as it takes place.  

    PRE-HISPANIC SETTLEMENT MAY BE LOST IF VOLCANO ERUPTS

    The director of the museum that is housing the statue is worried that the nearby volcano could erupt and possibly bury forever an entire pre-Hispanic settlement. More than 5,000 important pieces have been located up to now throughout several parts in the municipality, all of which have been put on display in the museum.

    Experts at the museum are still unsure of what the new statue is meant to represent, but several theories have arisen from those who have managed to get a glimpse of the statue at the museum. Many have said that the statue clearly shows a Grey alien with a long head and oval shaped eyes, holding a human head, while others have said that the statue may represent an alien deity.

    Rendlesham Forest, UFOs, and a Faked Document

    As a (kind of) follow-up to my article on the controversy surrounding Marilyn Monroe, UFOs, and a questionable document, there is the matter of an equally controversial document that concerns the famous December 1980 UFO event at Rendlesham Forest, Suffolk, England. The most widely accepted scenario within the UFO research community is that extraterrestrials landed/manifested in those dark woods in late December. There is talk of a small, intelligently controlled vehicle moving through the trees, of lights beaming down to a weapons-storage area in the vicinity, of bizarre activity in the woods, and of strange, dwarfish entities seen at close quarters.

    Rendlesham Forest alleged UFO landing site

    There is, however, absolutely no doubt at all that this particular document is completely and utterly bogus. I mention it, though, in the event that it might catch your attention and provoke a “WTF?!” response. The document is actually a letter, written on British Ministry of Defense paperwork and is undated. It reads (without interruption) as follows:

    QUOTE: “Dear [Deleted], As you know, OSI has completed a report on the landing of a craft of unknown origin crewed by several entities near RAF Bentwaters on the night of December 29/30 1980. Interestingly, OSI reports that the entities were approximately 1 1/2 metres tall, wore what appeared to be nylon-coated pressure suits, but no helmets. Conditions on the night were misty, giving the appearance that the entities were hovering above ground level.

    “Tape recordings were made on which the entities are heard to speak in an electronically synthesized version of English, with a strong American accent. Similar transmissions intercepted (possible word omitted) irregularly by NSA since 1975. According to OSI, entities had claw-like hands with three digits and an opposable thumb. Despite original reports, OSI said the craft was not damaged but landed deliberately as part of a series of visits to SAC bases in USA and Europe. Reports that craft was repaired by US servicemen or was taken on to the base are not confirmed by OSI.

    “Landing is not considered a Defence issue in view of the overt peaceful nature of the contact, but investigations by DS8 are to be continued on [Deleted] authority. Precautionary plan for counter-information at a local level involving [Deleted] and a [Deleted] is strongly recommended.” END OF QUOTE

    Well, that’s quite a story! But, a story is all it is.

    The document was reproduced in the 1986 paperback edition of a book on the Rendlesham Forest affair titled Sky Crash. The authors were Brenda Butler, Dot Street, and Jenny Randles. In their book, the authors note that the “memo” – sent to the team as a photocopy – was received in early 1984. They added that, “We have investigated it…and our conclusion is that it is a deliberate fake by certain parties, whose identities are strongly suspected by us.” They concluded: “This hoax has clearly been planned to test us or, more likely, to impugn our credibility should we fall for the trick. We call their bluff.”

    I recall how several colleagues in Ufology, in the 1990s, sent copies of the “document” to the British Ministry of Defense, asking for an opinion on it. MoD staff did not avoid commenting on it. They were careful to make it very clear that it was what it really is: a hoax. Ironically, because copies of the document were sent to the MoD for comment, they ended up in the MoD’s “Rendlesham File.” And when, years later, that same “Rendlesham File” was finally declassified, people who accessed it saw the fake document in the file! I know from emails I got at the time, that this created a few issues for people who assumed the document was the real deal! It is, perhaps, for this very reason that I know some people still hang onto the possibility that the document is genuine. But, trust me, it ain’t.

    The Most Interesting Science News Articles of the Week

    Each week we uncover the most interesting and informative articles from around the world, here are 10 of the coolest stories in science this week.

    Archaeologists in England discovered a Neolithic earthwork and burial site that could date back to 2000 B.C.

    A 4,000-year-old henge monument, containing five well-preserved human burials, has been discovered in England, archaeologists announced.

    Archaeologists still debate the purpose and the origin of henges, but researchers know that the earthworks started showing up in the British Isles in the third and early second millennia B.C. Most of these monuments contain no traces of everyday activity, and some feature burials or are aligned with cosmic phenomena. So, some researchers believe henges must have had some sort of ceremonial or ritual significance. [Read more about the henge monument.]

    Stock up on emergency supplies and get those galoshes ready — this year's hurricane season is likely to be a big one.

    This year, there is a 45 percent chance of an above-normal season, a 35 percent chance of a near-normal season and just a 20 percent chance of below-normal activity, NOAA reported. [Read more about the upcoming season.]

    The perplexing cosmic object known as "Boyajian's star" is once again exhibiting a mysterious pattern of dimming and brightening that scientists have tried to explain with hypotheses ranging from swarms of comets to alien megastructures.

    The brightness changes exhibited by Boyajian don't show the kind of regularity that is typical of a planet's orbit around its star, and scientists can't see how the changes could be explained by a system of planets. [Read more about the dimming star.]

    A quartet of adorable baby squirrels recently got into quite a sticky predicament.

    Andrew Day saw the ensemble of squirrels hobbling across the grass with their tails fused "like a giant dreadlock, Day told The Bangor Daily News. After capturing a video of the odd scene, Day took the squirrels to a veterinarian, who liberated them. [Read more about the cute squirrels.]

    Alcohol and marijuana may be the most commonly used recreational drugs in the world, but "magic" mushrooms appear to be the safest, a new survey finds.

    The Global Drug Survey is a London-based research group that's focused on making drug use safer. The results of the 2017 survey were published today (May 24) and included responses from more than 115,000 people from 50 countries. [Read more about the ratings.]

    It's a plane, it's a blimp … it's the world's largest aircraft.

    On May 10, the Airlander 10 flew for a total of 180 minutes to test the aircraft's handling, improved landing technology and more, according to Hybrid Air Vehicles. This was only the third flight of the Airlander 10. It first debuted as HAV-304, and successfully flew in 2012 as part of the U.S. Army’s Long Endurance Multi-intelligence Vehicle program. The reimagined and modified Airlander 10 made its maiden voyage in August 2016, kicking off a flight test program to assess the aircraft's performance and attempting to fly the airship farther away from its base in Cardington, England.

    A new study finds 52 genes that are related to intelligence — a rousing success in a field that has often struggled to find correlations between smarts and genes.

    These genes "are basically a tip of the iceberg," Posthuma told Live Science. "But there are still a lot more genes that are important for intelligence." [Read more about intelligence genes.]

    A botulism outbreak has killed one man and sickened nine other people who ate nacho cheese sauce contaminated with the toxic bacterial protein. Heath officials traced the outbreak to a gas station in California's Sacramento County.

    The toxin blocks nerve messages, which, in turn, causes people to lose control of their muscles, Chapman told Live Science. For instance, people who have consumed the toxin may have trouble swallowing, droopy eyelids and difficulty breathing, he said. [Read more about the tainted cheese.]

    Mouse sperm preserved on the International Space Station for nine months gave rise to healthy pups, a new study reveals.

    This work also raises the possibility of a "doomsday vault" for sperm in space that could help preserve animal species from disasters on Earth, much as the Global Seed Vault in Svalbard, Norway, does for plant species. The sperm-vault idea is similar to one depicted in a novel by the author of "A Game of Thrones," scientists added. [Read more about the mouse sperm.]

    Should We Try to Colonize Other Worlds or Stay and Fix Earth?

    As NASA continues to make incredible discoveries about nearby exoplanets, or planets outside of our solar system, it’s easy to wonder “what if?”

    What if we made successful manned missions to those planets? What if there was life on any of those planets, and we could make contact? These questions have driven astronomers and science fiction enthusiasts alike for countless years. And, as planning for manned missions to Mars and the search for extraterrestrial life continue, these questions become more relevant than ever.

    However, putting aside all the excitement generated by space exploration, it’s important to ask not only if we can, but if we should. According to acclaimed science fiction writer Kim Stanley Robinson, sending humans to nearby exoplanets would be a terrible idea. To discuss his opinions the best way he knew how, Robinson expressed himself in his 2015 novel “Aurora.” In this book, Robinson imagines a capsule-type human society that takes an extended journey to a nearby star on a large vessel built to sustain human, plant, and animal life for centuries.

    While Robinson’s book was technically science fiction, it wasn’t all that far from reality. Darpa funded the construction of an ark-like vessel similar to Aurora’s ship around the time the book was written. But instead of reinforcing Darpa’s aspirations, Robinson’s tale highlighted the issues that could potentially arise and compound on each other with such lengthy space travel. And, as his narrative illustrates, Robinson believes that these problems would be too great for humans to overcome.

    CLOSE TO HOME

    The challenges the fictional crew on the Aurora face paint a picture of the potential issues with space colonization that are rarely discussed. For example, we can clearly see how climate change is slowly but surely wreaking havoc on our planet. Now, imagine that Earth was a smaller, completely contained vessel in which the emissions and gasses produced had nowhere to escape. Even if the ship launched with environmental systems perfectly equilibrated with each other, any changes that occurred over the hundred years in space would throw multiple systems out of balance.

    As time goes on, this imbalance would only become more severe, and a trip to even the nearest exoplanet could take an extraordinary amount of time. These scientific concerns of imbalance in long-term, artificial environments are in addition to the sociological issues that are bound to arise.

    Terra-forming and space colonization are getting a lot of buzz since NASA announced that a nearby dwarf star named TRAPPIST-1 was discovered with seven surrounding planets, three of which orbit within the “habitable zone.” So, we may be wise to take this discussion about the repercussions of a manned mission to a nearby exoplanet more seriously than we would the latest piece of crazy science fiction. A voyage like this is becoming more and more of a possibility, and it’s important to take a step back and think about obstacles that might not be obvious.

    While it will be temping to bound ahead with interplanetary space travel as soon as it becomes more feasible, we might not want to take the leap too soon. The problems we have on Earth will not disappear when we leave — they will follow us wherever we go. So let us remember even while we work towards a technologically advanced future that just because we can doesn’t always mean that we should.

    HE HIGH FIVE

    Astronomers have long been seeking an Earth-like planet that could support some form of life. One prominent discovery is the Proxima Centauri b, also known as Proxima b, which was found in the habitable zone of the red dwarf star, Proxima Centauri.

    Despite these discoveries, there’s still a lot to learn.

    “We know very little about these [types of] planets,” Thomas Barclay, senior research scientist and director of the Kepler and K2 missions, told Space.com.

    So let’s go over what we do know about five of the closest Earth-like planets to us.

    1. Wolf 1061c

    Located in the habitable zone of Wolf 1060 in the Ophiuchus constellation, this exoplanet is 4.3 times as large as the Earth, and is believed to have a rocky surface. It is also the second-nearest known exoplanet to us at 13.8 light-years from Earth, second only to Proxima b.

    2. Gliese 832c

    At five times the size of the Earth, astronomers identified Gliese 832c as a “super-Earth.” It was found 16 light-years away and revolves around Gliese 832 in just 36 days.

    3. Gliese 667Cc

    Located 22 light-years away in the Scorpius constellation, Gliese 667Cc is also a super-Earth (3.9 times larger than Earth). It takes only 28 days for it to revolve around Gliese 667C.

    4. TRAPPIST-1d

    40 light-years away from Earth in the Aquarius constellation, TRAPPIST-1d is one among three Earth-like planets orbiting the dwarf star TRAPPIST-1.

    5. Gliese 163c

    Located 49 light-years away in the Dorado constellation, Gliese 163c is also a super-Earth at a whopping seven times that of the Earth. It takes 26 days for it to orbit Gliese 163.

    MILLIONS OF CHANCES FOR LIFE OUT THERE

    Using the Kepler Space Telescope, NASA has discovered more than 2,000 planets that could possibly support life, but there’s still so much mystery surrounding these alien worlds. “For some of them, we know an approximate mass or an approximate radius, and we know roughly how far they are from their star — but that’s really all we know.” said Barclay.

    And while living on these exoplanets may be possible, it will be an entirely different experience as life forms would have to adapt differently to its unique temperature, climate and environment. On Proxima b, for example,

    “The light also isn’t the bright white-yellow light we get from the sun. It would be much more red. So, you would expect biology to evolve differently,” Barclay said, adding that solar flares from red dwarfs could also have a large impact on exoplanets orbiting them.

    In the end, we won’t be packing our bags anytime soon to settle on one of Earth’s closest neighbors.

    The most startling revelation of the year so far came at the end of a BBCHorizon programme called Strange Signals From Outer Space!. I’ve always admired the lads and lasses who produce Horizon; for decades, they have been giving us programmes that stretch our minds and fill them with uplifting concepts about the possibilities of human endeavour. Clearly, though, the producers haven’t been reared in a newsroom environment. If they’d been schooled in the arts of detecting and conveying hard news, they would have stuck this potentially game-changing information at the top of their programme.

    It seems astronomers and space scientists have been showing more than a fancy to some bursts of activity in the blue yonder, which they believe might give them a chance of detecting alien messages. They’ve been looking at bursts of radio waves produced by neutron stars to search for unusual signal formations. Basically, these signals happen routinely and intermittently. But if any were to form into a pattern then there’s a decent chance that ET and his chinas are trying to contact us.

    This edition of Horizon had been a great wee programme where I got to discover that there was a Scottish connection to another set of signals that, alas, turned out to be less amazing than they’d otherwise promised to be. This was called the Lorimer Burst and can only have been so called in memory of Peter Lorimer’s screamer against Zaire at the 1974 World Cup. That, too, had promised amazing things but, in the end had turned out not to be as Scotland’s challenge ended in glorious heartbreak – just like the Lorimer Burst.

    Then, right at the very end, the narrator suddenly says: “Then in 2016 a new burst was detected; the distinctive pulse of radio waves released as the neutron stars collided and were destroyed, followed by nothing – silence – just as the astronomers expected. [At this point, the producers inserted a long pause for dramatic effect.] But then, when they looked again, the signal came back.”

    And that was the end of the programme.

    Essentially, the narrator was telling us that an alien signal was detected last year from outer space. But then, as soon as he did, the final credits started rolling. They should have put this at the start of their programme and then worked backwards with all sorts of delicious speculation about what it could be and how scientists had reacted. Indeed, the fact that they didn’t is deeply meaningful in itself and slightly unsettling.

    Although I don’t own a telescope, I’ve been keeping an eye on space for a good wee while now. And I can tell you that there’s an international executive protocol whenever there is even a hint of aliens sending us messages. Presidents and prime ministers are informed and soon there is a Cobra-like huddle in Geneva or somewhere similar as they determine whether they ought to be alarmed by the signal. Until now, nothing much has happened at these gatherings beyond the Russians getting an opportunity to collect more material for future blackmail operations.

    I think that last year’s signal – let’s call it the Archie Gemmill Burst in honour of the wee man’s goal against Holland in 1978 – is even now being scrutinised by international heads of state and their military advisers. What if the Archie Gemmill Burst has alarmed them and that they forbade the Horizon team from saying anything further about it? This in itself concerns me and it’s all because of Donald Trump. Prior to Donald Trump, I suspect that the Archie Gemmill Burst would have elicited a proportionate and considered response. Even if they were uncertain about the nature of the aliens’ communique, they would have tried to establish a dialogue. And this is where the Scots could have come in handy again. You see, this wee country of ours has been undertaking quite a lot of space activity recently.

    BBC Scotland even has its very own space correspondent, big Kenneth Macdonald, one of the most experienced and respected of its reporters. According to him, the Scottish space industry is a very vibrant one indeed. While Scotland makes up less than 9% of the UK population, it accounts for 18% of jobs in the UK space industry, while more than 100 private and public organisations have created almost 7,000 jobs and are contributing more than £130m to the Scottish economy. And – get this – in the past two years Glasgow has built more satellites than any other city in Europe. Glasgow has even hosted a conference on how to use the increasing amount of data coming from orbit.

    I think that Glasgow has shown it has all the credentials to represent planet Earth in any dialogue with the extraterrestrials over the Archie Gemmill burst. And that way, the world could be assured that this would be friendly and upbeat. “How are youze all?” we would say, before inquiring after the kids and asking if they’d had a long journey. Then we’d invite them down for a cup of tea and “perhaps something stronger”. We’d tell them that our intentions were friendly and that we’d be looking forward to getting to know them.

    But we’d also issue a friendly warning not to take any liberties. Any extended period of unwanted scrutiny can make Glaswegians feel a bit edgy. Such behaviour can often be met with the response: “What are you looking at, sunshine?” So it would be friendly and business-like at the same time.

    Donald Trump’s presence changes everything though. He’ll breenge his way to the front wearing a ridiculous US military brown leather jacket and daft baseball cap. And you can be certain he’ll have seen yon Independence Day movie where the American president himself leads a global military task force equipped with missiles. He’d immediately assume the aliens were an unfriendly shower and want to build some kind of virtual wall to keep them out. The stupid big bastard would see this as a way of rescuing his failed presidency.

    The aliens, though, will have seen him coming and have probably been bugging his hotel rooms and family apartments for years… as well as all the rest of them. I’ve got a bad feeling about this.

    Juno sees a familiar constellation from Jupiter

    It may look like much, but it's a new view from our solar system

    Imagine that you're standing on an alien world, far out in the galaxy. You look up and see a brilliant bed of stars above you, blanketing totally foreign sky. 

    But what if you were on a different planet a little closer to home? What would you see then?

    A new photo beamed back from Jupiter by NASA's Juno probe, gives us a good idea of what that could be like.

    The new Juno image gives us our first view of what it's like to look out from within Jupiter's rings — yes, the huge planet has its own rings — back toward something pretty familiar: the constellation Orion. 

    "The bright bands in the center of the image are the main ring of Jupiter’s ring system," NASA said in a statement

    An annotated version of the image

    IMAGE: NASA/JPL-CALTECH/SWRI

    "The bright star above the main ring is Betelgeuse, and Orion’s belt can be seen in the lower right."

    While the photo may not look like much, it represents a brand new view of our solar system.

    Juno is the first spacecraft to take a photo looking out from between Jupiter and its rings. 

    The spacecraft isn't done reshaping our view of the largest planet in our solar system either. Juno will continue to send back photos showing off Jupiter's cloud tops and storms along with other images of the huge world until its mission ends next year.

    Buitenaardse levensvormen op het ISS. Russische ruimteagentschap doet opmerkelijke aankondiging

    Het internationale ruimtestation ISS, dat al bijna 20 jaar rond de aarde draait, wordt elke dag geraakt door micrometeorieten en komeetstof dat mogelijk buitenaardse levensvormen bevat.

    Dat onthulde de Russische ruimtevaartorganisatie Roscosmos vrijdag in een persverklaring, meldt persbureau Sputnik.

    Zelfs op een hoogte van zo’n 400 kilometer vangt het ruimtestation constant grote hoeveelheden microdeeltjes op, waaronder bacteriën, schimmels en zelfs plankton.

    Volgens Roscosmos wordt het ISS ook vaak geraakt door komeetdeeltjes ter grootte van een graankorrel.

    “De micrometeorieten en het komeetstof aan de buitenkant van het ISS bevatten mogelijk biogene substanties van buitenaardse oorsprong,” aldus het ruimteagentschap in de persverklaring.

    Russische wetenschappers analyseren aminozuren die aan het oppervlak van het ruimtestation worden geproduceerd.

    Overleven

    Dat is niet eenvoudig, aangezien de monsters erg klein zijn en standaardmethoden niet gelijk resultaten opleveren. Experts werken momenteel aan een oplossing voor dit probleem.

    Kosmonauten hebben tijdens ruimtewandelingen in totaal 19 monsters verzameld buiten het ISS. Die monsters zijn overgebracht naar de aarde.

    In 2013 bleek dat sommige micro-organismen buiten het ISS kunnen overleven en zich zelfs kunnen ontwikkelen in de ruimte.

    Nieuwe bacterie

    Ze waren bestand tegen onder meer de extreme temperaturen en kosmische straling. Het is dus mogelijk dat aardse micro-organismen met ruimtesondes zijn meegereisd naar andere planeten.

    Op 20 mei lieten NASA-wetenschappers weten een nieuwe bacterie te hebben ontdekt op filters die waren geïnstalleerd in het ISS. De bacterie is vernoemd naar een Indiase oud-president.

    De nieuwe levensvorm, Solibacillus kalamii, is op aarde nog niet gevonden.

    NASA-functionarissen zeiden het bericht niet te kunnen bevestigen.

    Ministry of Defence officials 'DID investigate mass UFO sightings in West Wales village'

    The Broad Haven Triangle sightings made national headlines nearly 40 years ago

    BY

    New details have emerged shedding light on a spate of mysterious UFO and alien sightings which gripped a West Wales community almost 40 years ago.

    Dubbed the 1977 Broad Haven Triangle mystery, conspiracy theories went into overdrive when reports emerged that 14 pupils from Broad Haven primary school had seen a UFO landing in Pembrokeshire.

    The head teacher at the time backed up their claims, saying they had all drawn similar pictures of the craft.

    Many others reported being petrified by a strange silver alien.

    Now a new novel claims to have revealed details of a declassified MoD document which suggests top-ranking officials carried out a covert inquiry into the mysterious activities.

    'Archive evidence'

    The Watchers by Neil Spring is said to be based on “true events” and promises to reveal the truth about what really happened at Broad Haven.

    Related: Welsh ministers were asked for information about UFO sightings... and they replied in KLINGON

    According to the Express, Mr Spring researched the case through documents sent to the National Archives 30 years after the bizarre happenings and after a new witness came forward.

    “I visited Broad Haven a sceptic, and came away convinced that some of the locals knew far more about the mysterious occurrences of 1977 than they are willing to reveal,” he said.

    'Faceless humanoid'

    According to documents held at the National Archive in Kew, the story began one night in April 1977 at 2.30am when Rosa Granville, who ran the Haven Fort Hotel in Little Haven, was awoken by strange noise and lights.

    Looking out of her window, she described seeing an object which looked like an “upside-down saucer” in the field next to the hotel and two “faceless humanoid” creatures with pointed heads.

    The incident, she said in a subsequent letter she wrote to her MP Nicholas Edwards, left her “agitated and disturbed and not the least bit desirous of another encounter”.

    'Inundated with sightings'

    On receiving Mrs Granville’s letter back in 1977, Mr Edwards contacted the Ministry of Defence and Flight Lieutenant Cowan, an officer from RAF Brawdy, then visited the hotel.

    The MP said at the time: “I am being inundated at the present time with representations about UFOs said to have been seen in Pembrokeshire.”

    Other incidents reported in the Broad Haven area at the time included a class of schoolchildren who claimed to have seen a spacecraft near their playground.

    Then a family said they saw several UFOs in the space of a week, as well as several sightings of silver-suited creatures.

    MoD officials expressed no interest, saying there was no threat to national security.

    'Discreet inquiry'

    However, among the documents was a letter from the head of the MoD’s S4 wing to the Provost Security Service, the RAF’s internal police force.

    The S4 chief wrote: ”I have not even told the Minister I am consulting you” and called for a “discreet enquiry” after expressing bewilderment at the number of apparently “level-headed” witnesses to the strange activity.

    Mr Spring said: “(The new witnesses’) testimony rocked the very foundations of the British Government.”

    'Bombshell document'

    Nick Pope, who worked as UFO investigator for the MOD, said: “This bombshell document shows how the MoD’s UFO project asked the RAF Police to conduct a secret investigation into these mysterious events, while Parliament, the media and the public were being told the subject was of no defence significance.

    “Defence ministers were cut out of the loop.”

    The disclosures have prompted Tory peer Lord Black of Brentwood to call for a full explanation from the MoD of what it uncovered.

    'More answers needed'

    Lord Black said: “A number of recently released MoD files leave little doubt that a small number of sightings of aerial phenomena - particularly by military personnel, pilots and air traffic controllers - remain unexplained and unidentified.

    “There needs to be further examination of these issues in the hope of learning something new.”

    In A First, Atmosphere Detected Around An Earth-like Planet

    The observations of GJ 1132b, which is located about 39 light-years away from Earth, suggests the planet has a thick atmosphere containing either steam and/or methane.

    universe

    For the first time, astronomers have detected an atmosphere around an Earth-like exoplanet. Although it is unlikely that the planet is habitable due to its scorching surface temperature of 370 degrees Celsius (698 degrees Fahrenheit), the discovery is still being hailed as a major step forward in the search for extra-terrestrial life. Why? Because it is the chemical composition of a planet’s atmosphere that scientists presently use as basis to detect whether life on that planet exists.

    Basically, it has to do with the chemical imbalances caused by living organisms – in our case, it’s the presence of huge amounts of oxygen. Spotting an atmosphere on a planet other than the Earth therefore brings to mind the possibility that life might or might have existed on that planet too.

    The exo-planet is known as Gliese 1132b (or GJ 1132b). It’s located about 39 light years away in the southern constellation Vela and is referred to as a ‘super-Earth’, with a mass and radius that’s slightly larger than our own planet.

    The discovery of the atmosphere was made by a research team led by John Southworth from Keele University in the U.K. and Luigi Mancini from the University of Rome Tor Vergata. Other members of the team include researchers from the University of Cambridge and the Max Planck Institute for Astronomy.

    To get a better idea on the size and composition of the planet, the team — using the GROND imager at the 2.2 m ESO/MPG telescope of the European Southern Observatory in Chile — measured the dip in brightness across seven wavelengths of light as the planet passed in front of its host star (red dwarf star Gliese 1132) once every 1.6 Earth days.

    Based on the amount of light lost, they were able to deduce the size of Gliese 1132b — 1.4 times that of the Earth.

    The team also made a surprising discovery. They noticed that the planet appears to be larger in one wavelength than it does in all the other wavelengths. This suggests that its atmosphere is opaque to this particular wavelength, which is what causes it to appear larger as it is able to absorb some of the host star’s light. At all the other wavelengths, however, the atmosphere appears transparent.

    Researchers say that one possible explanation for this is the presence of water and methane in the atmosphere. As Dr. Southworth said in a statement they issued: ‘The planet is significantly hotter and a bit larger than Earth, so one possibility is that it is a “water world” with an atmosphere of hot steam.’

    Another point of interest about the planet is the fact that it is orbiting a red dwarf of low mass. As it is, such stars are quite common across the universe and though they are often found to host small planets, they are believed to be extremely active that the atmosphere of any nearby planet cannot survive the harmful X-rays and ultraviolet light it produces.

    With the discovery of Gliese 1132b’s atmosphere, it now appears that a planet’s atmosphere can actually endure the continuous bombardment of harmful cosmic rays. This in turn suggests that there are probably more planets like Gliese 1132b. More importantly, this might be an indication that the conditions suitable for hosting life are more common in the universe than we thought. Which is why further study of Gliese 1132b has now become a priority for the world’s most powerful telescopes including the Hubble Space Telescope, ESO’s Very Large Telescope, and the James Webb Space Telescope (scheduled for launch next year).

    Details of the study have recently been published in the Astronomical Journal.

    Mysterious ‘Alien Megastructure Star’ Flickers Again

    It has been puzzling astronomers since first discovered due to its weird flickering behaviour which no other star in the universe is exhibiting.

    Alien Star

    KIC 8462852 — also known as Boyajian’s Star, Tabby’s Star, or the “alien megastructure star” — has gained much interest and attention from astronomers around the world because of its unusual light fluctuations. Located in the Cygnus constellation nearly 1,300 light years from the Earth, the said star regularly loses its luminosity, only to revert to its original brightness after a certain period of time. In short, the star flickers. And this weird phenomenon has not been observed in any other star, which is what makes it so excitingly mysterious.

    Using data from NASA’s Kepler Space Telescope, the flickering of Tabby’s Star was first detected in September 2015 by a team of volunteers led by astronomer Tabetha Boyajian (for whom the star was named after). And now, it’s doing it again.

    As reported by Space.com, scientists all over the world were alerted to the situation by Jason Wright — an associate professor of astronomy at the Pennsylvania State University who is also managing a study of Boyajian’s star — during a live webcast on May 22nd. He received a phone call from the Fairborn Observatory in Arizona confirming that Boyajian’s star has once again exhibited its unusual behavior and was observed to be ‘3 percent dimmer than it normally is’.

    With the return of the perplexing event, amateur and professional astronomers alike have become more determined than ever to understand the star’s puzzling behavior and solve the question of why it behaves the way it does. Triggering the request to ‘turn as many telescopes as possible toward the star, to try and crack the mystery of its behavior’, some of the world’s largest and most powerful telescopes are now focused on Tabby’s Star, including the twin 10-meter telescopes at the W.H. Keck Observatory in Hawaii and the Automated Planet Finder telescope at Lick Observatory in California through the Breakthrough Listen Initiative — deemed to be the most powerful and comprehensive scientific search ever undertaken for signs of intelligent life beyond Earth.

    Scientists have formulated a number of hypotheses that attempt to explain the star’s unusual behavior. The most common hypothesis suggests that nearby planets have broken apart and that fragments of planetary material are blocking the view from Earth. Another popular hypothesis suggests that swarms of comets passing in front of the star cause it to dim. And of course, there’s the alien theory proposing that the dimming (which was up to 20% at one point) is being caused by an alien megastructure orbiting around the star, collecting its energy.

    The fact that there doesn’t seem to be a pattern to Tabby’s Star’s flickering is what’s making the explanation for it quite elusive. Which is exactly why its present flickering is quite significant. With so many scientists focused on it, there’s a better chance of figuring out what’s causing its behavior.

    At the very least, the star’s luminosity can be observed using different colors and light spectra, which can then provide us with a clearer picture of the types of chemicals present when the flickering occurs, or even the characteristics of the objects or materials blocking the star’s light.

    Whatever the answer behind this star mystery turns out to be, the world will surely be waiting. And scientists will be watching.

    Close encounters of a blurred kind! UFO hunters ZOOM in on faded Roswell photo and claim US general’s memo reveals a ‘disc-shaped craft and victims’ found in 1947 mystery crash

    • Air Force General Roger Ramey was pictured in 1947 holding the memo

    • The military maintain that the Roswell crash was a downed weather balloon
    • But it has still become one of the most infamous UFO conspiracy theories  

    Conspiracy theorists claim a blurry letter seen in a picture could be the key to solving the Roswell UFO mystery.

    The photo shows Air Force General Roger Ramey crouching over debris which was claimed to be from the Roswell Crash.

    He appears to be holding a memo, which UFO researchers believe could be key in finally unlocking what happened in the New Mexico desert 70 years ago.

    UFO BOMBSHELL: Could this memo solve Roswell 'flying saucer' crash mystery?

    DECIPHERING this memo captured in an alleged image of the remains of whatever crashed in Roswell, New Mexico, nearly 70 years ago, could solve the world's biggest ever UFO mystery, it has been claimed.

    Roswell-UFO-Ramey-Memo

    USAF

    Mr Ramey holding the memo (circled) in the picture in question.

    Roswell has been at the heart of the alien hunter scene since the military sensationally announced in a press release in July 1947 it had found a crashed flying saucer in the desert nearby.

    But the following day the statement was retracted and officials said the debris was in fact a damaged US Air Force air balloon.

    Witnesses later came forward to say there had been a cover up and alien bodies were found within the "crashed craft", which along with the wreckage were then taken to the mysterious top-secret Area 51 military base in Nevada.

    The alleged cover up has become the world's biggest UFO conspiracy theory.

    The photograph in question shows General Roger Ramey in his office at Fort Worth Army Air Field, later known as Carswell Air Force Base. 

    He is holding a memo and crouching over debris that he claimed was from the Roswell crash and was identifiable as coming from a weather balloon.

    The Ramey memo in close up.

    But, many UFO researchers doubt the debris in the photo is actually from the object which crashed outside Roswell in July, 1947. They say it is was used as part of a cover up.

    They believe the text in the memo could proves their claims once and for all.

    Just hours before the pictures were taken, the public information officer at Roswell Army Air Field, sent out the infamous press release saying they had discovered the remains of a crashed flying saucer.

    This was on the orders of his superior, Colonel William Blanchard.

    Then the story gets stranger.

    Jesse Marcel was the intelligence officer who was sent to inspect and collect the material a day earlier.

    He was ordered to bring the material to Fort Worth.

    He later testified that when he got to Fort Worth, he was taken to Mr Ramey’s office where a photographer and chief of staff, Colonel Thomas Dubious, were waiting. 

    He claimed on the floor was different material that clearly came from a weather balloon and he was made to pose with it as if it was the debris he collected.

    These were the pictures that accompanied the subsequent article which claimed a mistake had been made and it was a weather balloon and not a UFO.

    Alejandro Rojas, a presenter for Open Minds Radio, said: "Marcel says he was ordered to go along with the story, and like a good soldier, he did what he was told, no questions asked.

    "Incidentally, Dubois also later claimed the debris in these photos were part of a cover-up. He said the weather balloon material was set out to trick the public.

    "The weather balloon explanation was accepted by the press and the public. 

    "It was not until the 1980s, when witnesses like Marcel came forward that the incident began to catch the public’s attention." 

    But the plot thickens.

    An inquiry into Roswell by New Mexico Congressman Steven Schiff, led to an admission from the Air Force that the weather balloon explanation was a cover-up.

    He says it is clear that there is a reference to a disc, and believes he can also make out a portion of a sentence that reads 'and the victims of the wreck’.

    Alejandro Rojas

    But this inquiry still concluded there was nothing extraterrestrial.

    The conclusion stated a top secret project called Project Mogul - to send balloons with sensitive listening devices used to detect Russian nuclear tests - was underway, and the debris was from one of these devices. 

    The weather balloon cover-up was to stop Project Mogul being compromised, the inquiry concluded.

    But, now UFO researchers think modern technology could solve the case once and for all.

    In the photos, the memo is seen in Mr Ramey's hands. 

    David Rudiak has used modern technology to zoom in on the text and claims to have deciphered some of the words.

    Roswell-Memo

    DavidRudiak

    David Rudiak claims to have deciphered these words in the memo.

    He believes he is now able to read 80 percent of it.

    Mr Rojas added: "He says it is clear that there is a reference to a disc, and believes he can also make out a portion of a sentence that reads 'and the victims of the wreck’.

    "Rudiak says this proves that a disc-shaped craft was recovered. 

    "However, perhaps more startling, he says it also corroborates the claims that extraterrestrial bodies were recovered from that wreck."

    The inquiry report said it had not been possible to decipher the text, saying: “The photo was sent to a national-level organisation for digitising and subsequent photo interpretation and analysis.

    David-Rudiak

    David Rudiak claims to have been able to read 80 percent of the memo.

    This organisation reported on July 20, 1994, that even after digitising, the photos were of insufficient quality to visualise either of the details sought for analysis.”

    Not all researchers agree with Mr Rudiak’s interpretation, but it is felt more needs to be done to read the memo in full.

    An anonymous donor has pledged a huge reward for information, says UFO author Kevin Randle.

    In a blog titled “Ramey Memo and the $10,000 Reward”, he wrote: “A trusted colleague who is not a Ufologist but does have an interest in Roswell and UFOs and who has the money, has taken this in a slightly different direction. 

    "He is offering a $10,000 reward for the first person or group/lab that can provide a definite read of the Ramey memo.

    “To claim the reward a number of criteria will need to be met, including full reproducibility of the result (with methodology of the individual/lab completely explained and transparent so that anyone knowledgeable can replicate in much the same way that the placard on the Not Roswell Slides was revealed). 

    "There must be overwhelming agreement that the result is definitive with most of the text clear enough that there is little or no disagreement on what it says across a broad spectrum of people of all opinions whether true believer or complete sceptic.”

    Roswell geen mysterie meer? Doorbreekt deze vreemde memo de geheimzinnigheid rond de UFO-crash?

    Een dag later werd dat bericht weer ingetrokken en zeiden de autoriteiten dat de wrakstukken afkomstig waren van een beschadigde weerballon van de Amerikaanse luchtmacht.

    Getuigen zeiden later dat het incident in de doofpot was gestopt en dat er lichamen van buitenaardse wezens waren geborgen, die naar Area 51 in Nevada waren gebracht.

    Doofpot
    Roswell geen mysterie meer? Doorbreekt deze vreemde memo de geheimzinnigheid rond de UFO-crash?

    De Ramey-memo (Wikicommons)

    Op de oorspronkelijke foto’s is te zien hoe generaal James Ramey in zijn kantoor op het Fort Worth Army Air Field een memo in zijn hand houdt.

    UFO-onderzoekers zeggen dat die memo voor eens en voor altijd kan bewijzen dat het incident in de doofpot is gestopt.

    Inlichtingenofficier Jesse Marcel moest de wrakstukken inspecteren en verzamelen. Hij kreeg de opdracht het materiaal over te brengen naar Fort Worth.

    Anders

    Hij getuigde later dat het materiaal dat in het kantoor van generaal Ramey lag anders was dan de wrakstukken die hij had onderzocht.

    “Marcel zei dat hij het spelletje moest meespelen en zoals een goede soldaat betaamt deed hij wat hem werd opgedragen,” zei Alejandro Rojas van Open Minds Radio.

    De fotograaf en stafchef, kolonel Thomas Dubois, claimde later dat de wrakstukken op de foto’s onderdeel waren van de cover-up, aldus Rojas.

    Misleiden

    “Hij beweerde dat het materiaal van de weerballon werd gebruikt om het volk te misleiden,” zei hij. “Pas in de jaren tachtig kwamen getuigen zoals Marcel naar buiten.”

    Het Amerikaanse congreslid Steven Schiff stelde een onderzoek in naar het Roswellincident. De luchtmacht gaf tijdens dat onderzoek toe dat er inderdaad sprake was van een doofpot.

    Moderne technologie kan deze zaak voor eens en voor altijd oplossen, denken UFO-onderzoekers.

    Ontcijferd

    David Rudiak heeft ingezoomd op de memo in de handen van Ramey en claimt 80 procent van het document te hebben ontcijferd.

    “Hij zegt dat er duidelijk wordt verwezen naar een schijf,” zei Rojas. “Hij denkt dat één van de zinnen betrekking heeft op ‘de slachtoffers in het wrak’.”

    “Rudiak zegt dat dit bewijst dat er een schijfvormig vaartuig is geborgen,” voegde hij toe. “Hij zegt dat uit de memo ook blijkt dat er buitenaardse lichamen zijn geborgen.”

    PHAETHON - THE MISSING PLANET OF OUR SOLAR SYSTEM: DESTROYED BY AN ANCIENT NUCLEAR WAR?

    There is a belief that if we study other planets in our solar system, we might be warned of the fate that could befall the earth if we aren't careful. This could certainly be the case when it comes to Phaethon, the tenth planet in our solar system. Some of you are no doubt thinking wait there are only nine planets in our solar system, and we have never heard of Phaethon. Well, some have heard of Phaethon and have been researching the existence of the planet for years. A scientist has for years studied the asteroid particles that seem to hoover around the area between Mars and Jupiter. These asteroids have scientists and even writers of science fiction wondering if perhaps hundreds of year ago another planet existed in our solar system.  

    TENTH PLANET IN SOLAR SYSTEM DISCOVERED

    The planet which has been named Phaethon has been researched for years, and many believe that this planet could have been highly advanced civilization. So, what happened to Phaethon, why does it no longer exist? Well, many believe that the asteroid belt that surrounds the large expanse of space between Mars and Jupiter is all that remains of Phaethon and that it was lost in a huge blast that caused it to explode literally. There are those who speculate that the blast was so monumental that it could be that of a nuclear explosion. But was the nuclear explosion man made or was it done by the atmosphere itself? Well, this has also been researching, and some scientists believe it was an implosion by the atmosphere itself. There is also a belief that Phaethon got into a battle with it's closest neighbor Mars which many believe was also habitable at that time. Either way, there could be a cautious lessen for the earth itself since the atmosphere if the earth is now suffering and the earth has much unrest along with nuclear technology.

    But despite the research evidence that Phaethon did exist there are those who argue the other side of the coin. There are researchers who dispute that Phaethon ever existed at all, despite the distance between Jupiter and Mars, along with the huge asteroid belt that surrounds this area. According to these researchers believe though that these asteroids aren't the debris of a planet but the beginnings of new planets that will evolve in the future. It turns out there is an argument for this theory as well, along with proof. So, which theory is true, perhaps none of us will know in our lifetimes. After all, if these asteroids are the beginning of new planets it could take millions of years for these to form and none of us will be around. In the mean time the area around Jupiter and Mars remains a mystery one that scientists, researchers, and authors have pondered, even if they don't always agree on what this area represents.

    RAW FOOTAGE OF UFO CRASHING - NETHERLANDS EARTHQUAKE

    Today at 3h30 local there was a 2.6 earthquake in the Netherlands. Right after the earthquake a sky watcher that was watching the skies above Groningen for the last couple of days shot this amazing footage of a UFO that was clearly shot down right after the earthquake.

    The raw video shows us an object falling down while it's attemping to correct it course. It appears that it's main propulsion system is down but it's trying to gain altitube to boosting some kind of trusters. The video shows the object in a falling trajectory, while it's attempting to regain control of it's propulsion system.  

    The sky watcher tried to shoot as many video as possible but suddenly the object outsmarts the tracking system and we don't know whether the object crashed to the ground or whether it regained altitude.

    The video is unique because it's shows the raw inside of a UFO and it's propulsion technology.

    A Model Series: Six Of The Best From UFO

    UFO is currently being broadcast on Forces TV at 6pm on Saturday and Sunday. We’ve restored some beautiful pictures of our favourite models from the show.

    Let us know your favourites and make sure you watch UFO this weekend!

    The SHADO Rocket
    The SHADO Rocket

    Only featuring in one episode (The Man Who Came Back) and located at The Cape, the rocket is one of our favourite models because of how incredible the launch sequence is. Check out the video above to see it in its full glory.

    The MoonBase Interceptor
    The MoonBase Interceptor

    Designed by Mike Trim and then revised by Derek Meddings. Armed with a single nuclear missile distinctively attached to the front of the craft, SHADO’s first line of defence against the UFO attacks.

    The Lunar Carrier & Lunar Module
    The Lunar Carrier & Lunar Module

    The gorgeous Lunar Carrier is responsible for flight within the Earth’s atmosphere. It carries the Lunar Module which is released into the upper atmosphere before flying on to the Lunar Base.

    The Lunar Mobile
    The Lunar Mobile

    Charged with ground defence of the Moonbase and equipped with rocket launchers. These fantastic models still look incredibly modern.

    The Skydiver
    The Skydiver

    It’s never said how many Skydivers are patrolling the oceans in UFO. If a UFO penetrates the Earth’s atmosphere SHADO launchers a fighter to intercept it.

    One of our favourite episodes, Sub Smash, will be broadcast on Sunday, June 4, at 6pm. It features a damaged Skydiver in the dept

    A UFO

    hs of the ocean.

    A UFO

    The aggressor itself, the UFO. Pronounced as “You-FO”. They have a transparent outer shell protecting an opaque core.

    Capable of travelling at 12 times the speed of light but forced to slow down in the atmosphere, these are a force to be reckoned with.

    UFO continues at 6pm on Saturday and Sunday on the Forces TV Channel, Sky 264, Virgin 277 and Freesat 165

    Inside the 'UFO state' of Nevada: Cruising the Extraterrestrial Highway and hearing eye-opening tales from the owner of the Little A'Le'Inn by Area 51 makes for an out-of-this-world trip

    •  Nevada boasts the most UFO sightings in the world, is home to the mysterious Area 51 military base
    • To find out more MailOnline dropped in to the aptly-named Little A'Le'Inn in Rachel, near the installation
    • There we spoke to owner Pat, who told us tales of strange craft 'really weird manoeuvres at high speed'

    They say that Nevada has the loneliest roads in the whole of America.

    You can certainly travel for hundreds of miles and not see a single person. But are you really alone?

    After all, Nevada boasts the most UFO sightings in the world, is home to the mysterious Area 51 military base, where many say alien technology is being analysed – and it even has a road called the 'Extraterrestrial Highway'.

    To find out more MailOnline Travel dropped in to the aptly-named Little A'Le'Inn in Rachel, the nearest town to Area 51, to have a chat with the owner about the area’s strange goings on.

    Pictured is MailOnline reporter Anthony Joseph on the Extraterrestrial Highway in Nevada

    Pat, the owner, has lived in Rachel all her life.

    To say it's a small town is an understatement - only 50 people live there.

    She is utterly convinced that Area 51 is testing alien life and is adamant she has seen UFOs.

    The 63-year-old said: 'I have actually watched a craft do manoeuvres. It was probably 15 years ago. I can tell you I was just coming home with my niece. It was in a place where there were things that just should never have been there.

    Many people around the world have their theories, but local knowledge is always the best. MailOnline visited the Little A'Le'Inn cafe and chatted to the owner, Pat, about her out-of-this-world experiences

    THE MYSTERIOUS PASSENGER JETS THAT FLY FROM LAS VEGAS TO AREA 51 

    At Las Vegas McCarran International Airport is a fleet of passenger aircraft (pictured) it's impossible to buy tickets for - because they fly to the US's secret Area 51 military base

    At Las Vegas McCarran International Airport is a fleet of passenger aircraft (pictured) it's impossible to buy tickets for - because they fly to the US's secret Area 51 military base

    In August 2016 it was revealed that a number of passenger planes were flying from Las Vegas McCarran Airport to Area 51.

    They don't carry any company logos – they're plain white with a red band down the side - and anyone who boards one is sworn to secrecy about where they're going and what they do for a living.

    The reason that the aircraft, mostly Boeing 737s, are so shadowy in nature, is because they serve America's most secret military base.

    But why are they there and what do they do? A Las Vegas taxi driver who served as a pilot for these aircraft said: 'The people there (at Area 51) are not like us.'  

    'It did really weird manoeuvres at high speed. I think we work side by side with alien beings – can I prove it? No. But I feel that. Just the shape of it – it was a saucer shape. It could have been a new technology that we were never aware of yet. But things just happen like that.

    'We told reporters of a sighting that had happened and they did their report. They got part way up the road and saw this thing and they got scared and came back.

    'They came inside and said “I want a shot of tequila” and then he told us their story.

    'They couldn't get to their cameras as there was actually a vehicle that they couldn't describe. It was really awesome.’

    A sign that all is perhaps not as it seems: Rachel in Nevada is the nearest town to Area 51

    Other locals are also convinced that aliens have landed.

    She continued: 'Some of them (the locals) have their own stories. Other people don't talk about it. We have one lady who was followed from Alamo to here by a craft. She could see it. She feels the only reason she didn't get abducted was because she was over child-bearing age. Can I prove it? No, but that was what she told me.

    'Many people have seen things happen over the years. Strange things. I think we've had beings too – I think about three. We had one who came and attended a conference and we were in the building and in 12 hours he never used the bathroom, never drank anything or ate anything.

    'Can I prove it? No. But I can tell you what happened. I think he was an alien being – I think a lot of them are just like humans.’

    Pat talks about aliens almost as if they were an accepted part of life.

    She added: ‘It's kind of common knowledge in these parts that they exist. It's not to be afraid of. Everybody talks about – it's been going on so long.' 

    NEVADA'S OTHER BIZARRE ATTRACTIONS

    There are many places to visit between Las Vegas and the Extraterrestrial Highway (State Route 375) in Nevada.

    Around two hours north-west of the city you will find yourself in the ghost town that is Rhyolite.

    There you will find whacky art displays, including the ghost sculpture of the Last Supper.

    Further up the road there is an abandoned school, pub and jail from the early 1900s, which is intriguing.

    One hour's drive north from here is a tiny place called Tonopah. This town was once the home of a mining industry worth $2million.

    But real estate and gaming became big business throughout central Nevada and by 1910 the town of Tonopah had less than half the population it had 15 years earlier.

    The Mizpah Mine still exists and has now become an attraction for visitors.

    If you are staying in Tonopah, it is recommended that you stay in the Mizpah Hotel.

    The hotel is said to house a ghost deemed 'the Lady in Red' by guests who have experienced her presence.

    A book at the reception of the hotel has regular updates of similar ghost sightings and experiences from guests who have stayed there.

    ZIJN CHEMTRAILS ONDERDEEL VAN BUITENAARDSE OORLOGSVOERING?

    Vooral het laatste jaar is het aantal waarnemingen van UFO’s in de buurt van chemtrails nogal fors toegenomen. 

    Als daar nu eens, mogelijk bovenop de bekende redenen zoals klimaatmanipulatie en het onzichtbaar maken van de naderende planeet Nibiru, een hele andere reden voor is dan dat wij tot nu altijd hebben gedacht? 



    Niemand weet formeel wat deze vliegende objecten zijn, waar ze vandaan komen of wat ze willen. Zijn ze gewoon nieuwsgierig zoals sommigen denken of zit er veel meer agenda achter dit veelvuldig(er) verschijnen bij chemtrails? 

    Het gaat zelfs zo ver dat die UFO's soms deze chemtrails als het ware lijken op te eten zoals we vorig jaar heel duidelijk hebben kunnen zien in de buurt van Parijs. Iets wat tot nu toe ook nog niet echt duidelijk is, is wie verantwoordelijk zijn voor de chemtrails in de lucht en ook hier weer: waarom? 

    Er zijn verschillende theorieën zoals het blokkeren van het zonlicht op aarde om verdere opwarming tegen te gaan, het verbergen van de planeet Nibiru voor al te nieuwsgierige ogen tot aan het testen met en het uitroeien van de wereldbevolking door het sproeien van giftige deeltjes in onze atmosfeer. 

    Maar, wat als die chemtrails nu eens met een heel andere reden in de lucht worden gesproeid? Wat als die reden zou zijn het verstoren van elektromagnetische velden in het kader van oorlogsvoering waar buitenaardsen bij betrokken zijn? 

    Dit klinkt voor velen uiteraard als sciencefiction. We leven echter in een tijd waar dingen gebeuren waarvan we dachten dat het sciencefiction was, maar nu steeds meer realiteit aan het worden zijn. 

    Van een lezer ontvingen wij (dank!) het volgende bericht

    Dat Poolse filmpje zie je een vliegtuig met chemtrail en die andere is een zelfde vliegtuig alleen dan zonder chemtrail. zelfde soort die een andere positie inneemt een paar bochten vliegt om vervolgens zijn rook kanon weer aan te zetten. 

    De rasters die ze vliegen lijkt wel op een soort kooi van Faraday en wat zo raar is boven Nederland heb ik er 5 geteld van deze vliegtuigen die dus weer niet op internet zijn te traceren. 


    De lezer refereert aan een deel uit een eerder artikel: 

    Een vergelijkbaar verhaal deed zich onlangs voor in Polen. Ook daar filmt iemand een vliegtuig met daarachter een enorme chemtrail. 

    Ook daar zie je op een gegeven van rechtsboven een UFO naar beneden duiken richting chemtrail, alsof het wil onderzoeken welke ellende daar in het luchtruim wordt gesproeid. 

    Net zoals wat de getuige in Engeland beschrijft, lijkt het alsof degene die deze UFO’s onder controle heeft ronduit nieuwsgierig is


     

    Wat is een kooi van Faraday? 

    Kooi van Faraday, genoemd naar Michael Faraday, is de benaming voor een kooivormige constructie van elektrisch geleidend materiaal, zoals koper of ijzer, die ervoor zorgt dat statische elektrische velden niet tot binnen de kooi kunnen doordringen. De kooi is wel doordringbaar voor statische magnetische velden zoals het aardmagnetisch veld. De kooi biedt bescherming tegen statische ontladingen zoals bliksem. 


    De voortstuwing van UFO’s gebeurt door middel van antizwaartekracht en elektromagnetische velden. Onderdeel van wat er in onze atmosfeer wordt gesproeid zijn metaaldeeltjes die natuurlijk heel goede geleiders vormen en waarmee je een magnetisch veld kunt creëren. 

    Een dergelijk veld zou het weleens heel moeilijk kunnen maken voor UFO’s om te vliegen en te navigeren. 

    Nu er ieder jaar meer wordt gesproeid boven onze hoofden, zie je ook vaker UFO’s opduiken in de buurt van deze chemtrails. Zijn deze misschien op onderzoek om te kijken wat ze eventueel kunnen doen om dat verstorend magnetisch veld te elimineren? 

    Woedt er wellicht binnen de heersende macht een oorlog tussen twee verschillende kampen die zich voor een deel afspeelt in de ruimte, een oorlog waar wel of niet ook buitenaardsen bij betrokken zijn? 

    Voor het gemak gaan we er altijd van uit dat die chemtrails door vliegtuigen worden gemaakt, maar misschien is dat wel helemaal niet zo. 

    Precies vijf jaar geleden publiceerden wij al een artikel waarin de mogelijkheid werd onderzocht dat chemtrails misschien wel eens door buitenaardsen gemaakt zouden kunnen worden. 

    Een klein deel uit dat artikel: 

    Het is een theorie, geschreven door een voor ons onbekend individu. Misschien is het vergezocht, maar er zou ook een kern van waarheid in kunnen zitten als je luchten ziet zoals op de volgende foto:

    ct 1

    De eindconclusie van het artikel is als volgt: 

    De chemtrails zijn echt en hebben een echt effect in de derde dimensie. De sproeivliegtuigen, die niet van de aarde of de maan of uit de derde dimensie afkomstig zijn, komen “ergens anders” vandaan. Het sproeien wordt niet gedaan door onze regeringen. En de regeringen hebben ook geen controle over de sproeivliegtuigen. Dus, het enige wat de regering kan doen is wat ze deden met UFO’s. Ze gaven als verklaring “Venus” of “moerasgas”. Chemtrails? Dat zijn contrails mijn vriend. Einde discussie. 

    Chemtrailpatronen zoals op de hierna volgende foto kunnen eenvoudigweg niet gemaakt worden door vliegtuigen, ook al halen ze nog zulke vreemde capriolen uit.

    ct 2

    Uiteraard weten wij ook niet hoe het precies zit en wie voor wat verantwoordelijk is, maar door het verleggen van grenzen en het denken buiten de normaal gangbare patronen zijn tot op heden al heel wat onduidelijkheden opgelost. 

    De lijnen van de machthebbers stoppen niet aan de rand van de aarde en daarom kunnen chemtrails wel eens (óók) voor iets heel anders dienen dan wat tot nu toe altijd is gedacht.

    Credible Source Says Extraterrestrial Prevented The Nuclear Detonation Test In Space

    Nuclear UFOs

    Colonel Ross Dedrickson was working as inventory maintenance of the nuclear weapons stockpile for the US Atomic Energy Commission (AEC) in the 1950s. He was also responsible for assisting security teams monitoring the safety of the arms and among many other duties.

    His obituary states that he was assigned to the AEC between 1950-1958. His responsibilities included administration at Nevada test sites, nuclear weapon manufacturing and quality assurance in Albuquerque, management of Pacific Nuclear Test Area in the west of Hawaii, and inspection of facilities across the country both nuclear and non-nuclear. He was put to the 5th Air Force in Japan and later served as a ranking Colonel. He then served as an officer in charge of the Pacific Unified Command in Hawaii. He was transferred to the 832 Air Division at Canon Air Force Base in Clovis, New Mexico and served as deputy. In 1964, he retired from the USAF.

    His verified professional background has made him one of the credible whistleblowers from the military. His testimony involving UFOs and nuclear weapons can now be corroborated with information and evidence within the public domain.

    Dedrickson explains how the U.S. government attempted to detonate a nuclear weapon on the moon.  The plan that was called Project A119 wanted to investigate the capability of weapons in space and get insight on the detonation of nuclear devices within the space environment.

    However, Dedrickson revealed that space aliens destroyed a couple of nuclear weapons sent into space. He said that they tried to put a nuclear weapon on the moon and explode it for scientific measurements and other things at the very end of the 70s and the early 80s, but extraterrestrials destroyed the weapon before it reached to the moon.

    Canada’s Falcon Lake Incident Still A Mystery 50 Years Later and The Best-Documented UFO Case

    stefan-michalak

    His father came home sick and injured from the Falcon Lake woods in Manitoba on the long weekend of May 1967. It is how Stan Michalak can still remember the ongoing mystery that put his family life into upheaval. The incident remains one of the best-known UFO encounters in the world.

    stefan-michalak-ufo

    Michalak, who was nine years old at the time, recalled that his father was in bed and did not look good as he looked pale and haggard. When Michalak walked into the bedroom, he noticed a major stink in the room. He described it as like a real horrible aroma of Sulphur and burnt motor all around. He later discovered that the smell was coming out of his father’s pores.

    Michalak, who co-authored the book “When They Appeared,” was terrified to learn that his father had been injured as he did not know anything about it. Within a couple of days, he knew more, but so did much the public. The Winnipeg Tribune newspaper ran a story about of a UFO that burned his father. It was the time everything hit the fan.

    The Encounter

    An industrial mechanic by trade, Stefan Michalak is also an amateur geologist who is interested of the wilderness around Falcon Lake, about 150 kilometres east of Winnipeg, specifically for quartz and silver. The prior year, he had staked some claims, so he decided to explore some more on the long weekend of May.

    The 51-year-old Stefan was close to a vein of quartz along the Precambrian Shield on May 20, 1967, when a gaggle of nearby geese, which erupted into a clattering of honks, startled him. Stefan looked up and spotted two cigar-shaped objects having a reddish glow floating about 45 metres away. One of the two landed on a flat section of rock and now took more of a disc shape. The other one stayed in the air for a few minutes before flying off.

    Stefan thought it was a secret U.S. military experimental craft, so he decided to sketch it over the next 30 minutes. Then he approached the object and felt the warm air and smelt a sulphur-like smell as he got nearer. He also heard a whirring sound of motors and a hissing of air.

    The door on the side then opened with bright lights inside. Stefan said that he heard voices muffled by the sounds from the craft. He called out and offered mechanical help, but he got no answer. Stefan decided to speak his native Polish but still got no reply. He also tried Russian and German, but only whirr and hiss of the craft responded.

    stefan-michalak-metal

    Stefan claimed he went closer and noticed the smooth metal without seams of the object. He then looked into the bright doorway and saw light beams inside and panels of several coloured flashing lights. However, he could not see anyone or anything inside.

    When Stefan stepped away, three panels slid across the door opening and sealed it. He reached to touch the craft but shocked to see the fingertips of the glove he was wearing melted. The craft then started to turn counter-clockwise, and Stefan noticed a panel that contained a grid of holes. Moments later, a blast of air or gas struck in his chest that pushed him backwards and set his cap and shirt ablaze.

    As he ripped away the burning garments, the craft lifted off and flew away. Stefan stumbled through the forest and vomited. Fortunately, he made his way back to his Falcon Lake’s motel room then ride a bus back to Winnipeg. He cared for burns to his chest and stomach at a hospital. His injuries later turned into raised sores on a grid-like pattern. Weeks after, he suffered from weight loss, blackouts, headaches, and diarrhoea.

    Eventually, the story was out of the media, RCMP, the air force, various government agencies, and the public. All of them descended to the Michalak’s’ small bungalow in River Heights, Winnipeg. Michalak received endless visitors and phone calls as the media and people camping on the lawn. It had taken several years before it died down.

    Stefan, who died in 1999 at the age of 83, felt that time that it was his duty to share the story for the others to avoid it and not get hurt. Stefan was a military policeman back in Poland before he moved his family to Canada. As a police officer, he had set moral guidelines and that if something happened, it should be reported.

    The family endured criticism and condemnation, Stefan’s sanity was questioned, and Stan was bullied in school. However, these were not enough for Stefan to back away from the story. Until his death, Stefan’s story never changed.

    After intense investigations that were carried out by a number of levels of government, the official conclusion was that the case was unexplained. Investigators retrieved Stefan’s glove and shirt, as well as some tools from the encounter site, but no one could tell what caused the burns.

    At the landing site, investigators found a circle measuring about 15 feet in diameter. They saw devoid of the moss and vegetation in other areas of the same rock. Samples of clothing and soil samples were tested, and they discovered that they were highly radioactive.
