    Eclipse will lead to upsurge in UFO sightings and crazy behaviour claims ex MoD man

    A MAN who was been at the heart of organising Ministry of Defence (MoD) contingency plans for upcoming total eclipse sightings has warned there could be an upsurge in UFO sightings and strange behaviour today.

    Nick Pope worked for the UK MoD in the 1990s and was involved in investigating the UFO phenomenon and contingency planning for the chaos caused by a total eclipse.

    Today’s total solar eclipse will be seen in the UK at around 7.40pm.

    It is called the Great American Eclipse because it can be seen at totality from the west to the east coast.

    Mr Pope, who now speaks at UFO conferences across the globe, expects an increase in UFO sighting.

    He said: “Past experience suggests there will be an upsurge in UFO sightings during the total eclipse. “I suspect many of these will turn out to be news helicopters filming the crowds, or drones flown by amateur photographers, and maybe the sightings occur simply because more people are looking at the sky. 

    “But don't be surprised if Monday's eclipse results in hundreds of UFO sightings all across America.”

    There could be UFO sightings and crazy behaviour during the eclipse.

    He also said to expect strange behaviour during the eclipse.

    He added: “Sadly, there's a dark side - pun intended - to the eclipse. 

    “Such events bring out the crazies, and I confidently predict that there will be an upsurge in nutjobbery at the time of the total eclipse. 

    “I’ve already seen predictions that the world will end, along with suggestions that we'll see more sightings of Bigfoot, demons, and all manner of other weird stuff.”

    Mr Pope also revealed how eclipses were a headache for the authorities due to huge numbers of people descending on areas where the eclipse will reach totality.

    He said: “With millions of people squeezing into a small geographic area, there are tremendous pressures on infrastructure. 

    “Petrol stations run out of fuel, cash machines run out of money, and shops run out of food. 

    But don't be surprised if Monday's eclipse results in hundreds of UFO sightings all across America.

    Nick Pope

    “Nobody can resupply because the area is gridlocked. 

    “I was involved in contingency planning for a Ministry of Defence operation - imaginatively entitled Operation Eclipse - that involved hundreds of troops being placed on standby to deal with a breakdown of various essential services, and I'm sure the US government has a similar plan in place for today.”

    Yet, Mr Pope did not help the MoD during the total eclipse seen over the UK in August 1999.

    He made sure he could experience it as a member of the public three years in advance.

    He said: “I'm an eclipse geek. I saw the total eclipse in August 1999 in Devon, and while it was overcast, nothing can quite prepare you for totality. 

    “It's as if a giant dimmer switch is suddenly turned, with it going from day to night in a few seconds.

    “I booked annual leave from the MoD three years in advance, just so I could get away from London and travel to somewhere in the path of totality. 

    “With only a short time left to the total eclipse, I urge anyone who can do so to travel to the path of totality. It's an experience like none other.”

    Scotland an alien nation as expert reveals over 1000 UFO sightings a year

    Malcolm Robinson insists the country is a hotspot for strange goings on in the skies and claims the Government is trying to cover it up.

    BY 

    Robinson is a self-styled expert on alien visits

    A self-styled UFO expert has revealed there are about 1000 reported sightings in Scotland every year.

    Malcolm Robinson last night insisted Scotland is a hotspot for strange goings on in the skies but claimed the Government are trying to cover it up.

    p:nth-of-type(2)","sizes":[[8,8]],"hideOnSensitiveArticle":true,"relativePos":"after","additionalClass":"in-article","name":"div-gpt-ad-vip-slot","type":"VIP"}" data-response-start="831.0500000000001" data-type="gpt" data-requested="867.08" data-google-query-id="CJ3jzvy36dUCFdKUdwodIQcIYw" data-timer-slot-rendered="1793.785" data-rendered-width="1" data-rendered-height="1" data-response-end="2677.81" style="text-align: justify;">

    The Scot, from Tullibody, Clackmannanshire, is the founder of Strange Phenomena Investigations and speaks at events on claims of alien visitors.

    Robinson admitted 98 per cent of sightings can be explained. But he said the remaining genuine reports give cause for curiosity.

    Robinson, who now lives in Hastings, said: “It’s extraordinary. Something is definitely going on in the skies above Scotland.

    Robinson believes the Government are trying to cover up UFO sightings

    “Sightings are on the rise and interest in the subject is increasing. Of the roughly 1000 reports we get from Scotland every year, 10 to 20 can be be described as accurate.

    “There are natural explanations for 95 per cent of them, around three per cent are test aircraft and sometimes there is rare atmospheric phenomena.

    “There are several hotspots in the country – Bonnybridge is one of the best in the world.

    “It’s my job to unmask frauds and prove to sceptics that this is reality.” Robinson worked alongside former Bonnybridge councillor Billy Buchanan in the 90s when sightings began in the town.

    More than 300 are still reported every year and the pair have written to every Prime Minister since John Major to ask for an inquiry – without response.

    Robinson believes the Government are withholding information.

    He said: “There are many sceptics and I started off as one of them. But I did research, looked at the overwhelming evidence and had my eyes opened.

    “Sightings are on the rise and I am certain the British Government know what is going on.

    “They have information they aren’t willing to share. The $1million question is, ‘Where are these objects coming from?’”

    His book UFO Case Files of Scotland is being re-printed next month.

    ET modified Human DNA

     “Francis Crick, the discoverer of DNA, and winner of the Nobel Prize although an atheist published a book which subscribed to the theory of intelligent design, that our universe was not simply the result of a series of chemical accidents.

    He states, Life did not evolve first on Earth, a highly advanced civilization became threatened so they devised a way to pass on their existence. They genetically-modified their DNA and sent it out from their planet on bacteria or meteorites with the hope that it would collide with another planet. It did, and that’s why we’re here.”

    Our DNA was encoded with messages from that other civilization. They programmed the molecules so that when we reached a certain level of intelligence, we would be able to access their information, and they could therefore “teach” us about ourselves, and how to progress.

    “An honest man, armed with all the knowledge available to us now, could only state that in some sense, the origin of life appears at the moment to be almost a miracle, so many are the conditions which would have had to have been satisfied to get it going.” ― Francis CrickLife Itself: Its Origin and Nature

    Missouri MUFON Has Equipped a Level 1 Lab

    Missouri MUFON has equipped a Level 1 Lab to assist MUFON International with preliminary trace level case evidence, thus saving MUFON International the cost of analyzing trace evidence that may be able to be identified within our organization. We have acquired a Forensic Comparison Microscope capable of comparing metal samples with reference samples to determine type and alloy using the grain pattern size.  The Lab is in need of sample alloys to complete this process.

    Here is a list of the aluminum alloys needed to produce reference samples for the Lab along with other things we can use. We are starting with aluminum alloys as they are the ones most used in aerospace applications. We will also need alloys and pure stock of other metal types. These are going to be made into reference samples so I need the alloy number or indication they are pure stock when received. The reference samples are needed to compare case metals against when field samples come in. There are several places that make reference samples but due to the cost (400 to 500 dollars) per ten we will have to make our own. If anyone has access to already made reference samples that they would donate we will of course be glad to have them. Other things that are needed at present are: a small acid cabinet and supplies such as are needed to sterilize soils in my kiln (crucibles of various sizes, large filters).

    This Level 1 trace evidence lab is open to all States and Canada for use. Any sample found with an “unknown” or sample the lab is not equipped to analyze, will be immediately forwarded to MUFON International for high level testing. The alloy numbers on the Aluminum are attached to this e-mail.
    The best for this use would be aluminum pieces no thinner than 1/2 inch but we would take this in any shape and can cut small pieces off any rod , bar, sheet etc. as long as the alloy number is known.

    Earthquakes Likely With Sun Moon Eclipse

    Mitch Battros Recent studies reveal accelerated tectonic movement involving fluid distribution of super-heated rock (magma) in worldwide ‘hotspots’, also known as mantle plumes.

    A mantle plume exists along the Mediterranean Sea, particularly along the length of Italy and in many of the islands in the southeastern Tyrrhenian Sea. The eclipse on August 21 may trigger earthquakes.

    The same gravitational force that creates high tides when the moon and sun align may also play a role in triggering major earthquakes, according to a study released Monday.

    Better understanding of this mechanism could help predict when known faults are more likely to produce killer quakes, the researchers said.

    “Large earthquakes are more probable during periods of high tidal stress,” the scientists concluded in the peer-reviewed journal Nature Geosciences. When the tug of gravity is strongest, they added, “the probability of a tiny rock failure expanding to a gigantic rupture increases.” For centuries after the discovery that solar and lunar forces affect the ocean tides, scientists speculated whether they also cause Earth’s crust to buckle and fracture.

    But only recently has statistical research started to establish a firm link between planetary alignments and temblors. Satoshi Ide, a professor at the University of Tokyo, and his colleagues zeroed in on large earthquakes — magnitude 5.5 or greater — around the world over the last two decades. His team reconstructed the strength of gravitational pull, known as “tidal stress,” in the two weeks prior to each tremor.

    Many of the largest earthquakes occurred during periods when the pull of the moon and sun were particularly forceful.

    These included the Dec. 26, 2004, quake in Sumatra, which ravaged a large swath of the island and delivered deadly tsunami toward South and Southeast Asia. Some 220,000 people died.

    The same link held for two other mega-quakes, the 2010 temblor near Maule, Chile, and the magnitude-9.0 quake on March 11, 2011, off the Tohoku region that claimed about 19,000 lives and crippled the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant. Exactly how strong earthquakes start and evolve is still poorly understood.

    One theory suggests that all quakes begin with a tiny fracture and grow, in a cascading process, into large-scale ruptures. If this is true, then the new study suggests that the likelihood of this happening increases during the spring tide, the period just after a new or full moon. The findings “can be used to improve probabilistic earthquake forecasting, especially for extremely large earthquakes,” the study said. https://www.japantimes.co.

    The US Space Corps Would Be a “Combat-Ready Space Force”

    The full House is now set to consider the bill that proposes a US Space Corps. The mission: Send combat forces into space to save the world from potential Star Wars. A Congressional committee is proposing that the US armed forces add a new military branch that would, quite literally, send soldiers out of this world.

    US military prepares for the next frontier: Space war

    The crew of real-life Buzz Light-years is described in the National Defense Authorization Act, which is now headed to the full House for a vote.

    There isn’t usually anything extraordinary about the NDAA, which every year lays out military spending.

    But this time, the House Armed Services Committee voted 60 to 1 in favor of a bill that would, among many other things, create the first new branch of the armed forces since the Air Force’s founding in 1947.

    Among the Space Corps’ official duties, as established in the bill, would be “providing combat-ready space forces that enable the commanders of the combatant commands to fight and win wars.”

    Space Corps would fall under the Air Force in the same way the Marine Corps does the Navy. The chief of staff of the Space Corps, a presidential appointee with a six-year term, would be on equal footing with the Air Force’s chief of staff. Both would report to the Secretary of the Air Force.

    War in space: Kamikazes, kidnapper satellites and lasers

    So far, there’s just one main problem with the proposal: Neither the Air Force’s secretary nor its chief of staff are thrilled with separating America’s own “Guardians of the Galaxy” from the rest of the armed forces.

    “I’ve been shocked by the response by the Air Force leadership,” Rep. Mike Rogers, R-Alabama, said during a June 22 committee hearing. The congressman chairs the subcommittee that wrote the Space Corps into the legislation.

    Senior Air Force officials see the proposed corps as an unnecessary change in the force’s existing space efforts. (The Space Corps wouldn’t exactly be boldly going where no man has gone before. The Air Force Space Command has been working toward that since 1982.)

    “This will make it more complex, add more boxes to the organizational chart, and cost more money,” Secretary Heather Wilson told reporters June 21. There are still plenty more congressional hoops for the Space Corps to jump through before it would become official. But, hey, at least the name sounds cool.

    John Lenard Walson Captures Space Ships

     Thank you for the space ship images: once again they show that you are an excellent photographer. There are of course many satellites in orbit, which look very different and appear much smaller. This space ship looks much larger than even the space shuttle and may be armed. 

    These space ships are readily seen by astro-photographers like John all over the world.

    You should just enjoy the excellence of your images, and make them available as widely as is possible, through the public web-sites, magazines, etc, so you can get the credit you deserve for your skills.

     Your help is greatly appreciated. John needs to go to an area with less light and cleaner atmosphere clearer pictures. You can help obtain even better images by helping him purchase a van to travel to better locations.

    We Can Modify the Weather

     Several UFOs were spotted during the flooding and dozens of tornadoes were reported in August throughout the Midwest. An average of 60 people are killed each year by tornadoes. Another 200 are drowned by flooding with about 50 people dying each year from lightning. The damage from cumulonimbus clouds (CBs) can run into the billions of dollars to buildings and homes.

    The National Severe Storms Laboratory NSSL Site Information –   NOAA’s reports, “The most destructive and deadly tornadoes occur from super cells, which are rotating thunderstorms with a well-defined radar circulation called a mesocyclone. (Super cells can also produce damaging hail, severe non-tornado winds, unusually frequent lightning, and flash floods.) Tornado formation is believed to be dictated mainly by things which happen on the storm scale, in and around the mesocyclone.”

    When I was in Vietnam in 1968, the Air Force extended the Monsoon season by over a month by cloud-seeding with silver iodide crystals using two C-130s and two F-4s on the Ho Chi Minh trail. I encourage the Air Force to use weather controlling tactics to protect American lives and property.

    I suggest tornadoes can be tamed and potential flooding storms should be spread out. For example, the Chinese, in August of 2008, used 37,000 people to seed clouds aiming for a dry Olympics. Hundreds of teams used anti-aircraft guns to shoot shells of silver iodide into approaching cloud masses and kept Beijing dry.

    The most common chemicals used for cloud seeding include silver iodidepotassium iodide and dry ice (solid carbon dioxide). Liquid propane, which expands into a gas, has also been used. This can produce ice crystals at higher temperatures than silver iodide. After promising research, the use of hygroscopic materials, such as table salt, is  becoming more popular.

    Surplus Harvard T-6 single engine aircraft were fitted with racks under each wing containing 32 railroad fuses that were impregnated with silver iodide were ignited individually or all at once, depending upon the threat. In coordination with ground units, the aircraft would lay a plume of silver iodide in front of approaching cumulonimbus clouds (CBs) with noticeable effect. Large, active Cumulonimbus clouds CBs which cause most of the damage were reduced to nothing. Heavy hail storms were also reduced in intensity.

    A C-5 Galaxy aircraft can carry a standard: payload of 240,000 pounds of dry ice or chemicals that could seriously effect a mesocyclone. Maximum payload capacity of the C-17 is 170,900 pounds with a service ceiling of 45,000 feet. Even drones could be used to tame dangerous clouds. Air Weather Service is headquartered at Scott AFB, IL, where I briefed the commander on a regular basis. AWS was restructured as a field operating agency during the reorganization of the former Military Airlift Command now called Air Mobility Command.

     Below is radar readout of a typical tornado. The actual tornado early in its track is located in the southern reddest hook near the bottom of the image. Craft inserting cloud seeding chemicals would likely stop the tornado formation.

    Recent theories and results from the VORTEX 2 program suggest that once a mesocyclone is underway, tornado development is related to the temperature differences across the edge of downdraft air wrapping around the mesocyclone. Storm spotters look for low bands of ragged bands of low cumulus clouds extending from the main storm tower usually to the southeast or south. The presence of inflow bands suggests that the storm is gathering low-level air from several miles away. If the inflow bands have a spiraling nature to them, it suggests the presence of rotation and the forming of the tornado.

    The beaver’s tail is a smooth, flat cloud band extending from the eastern edge of the rain-free base to the east or northeast. It usually skirts around the southern edge of the precipitation area. It also suggests the presence of rotation. (Possible attack point)

    A wall cloud is an isolated cloud lowering attached to the rain-free base of the thunderstorm. The wall cloud is usually to the rear of the visible precipitation area. A wall cloud that may produce a tornado usually exists for 10–20 minutes before a tornado appears. A wall cloud may also persistently rotate (often visibly), have strong surface winds flowing into it, and may have rapid vertical motion indicated by small cloud elements quickly rising into the rain-free base. (Possible attack point),

     As the storm intensifies, the updraft draws in low-level air from several miles around. Some low-level air is pulled into the updraft from the rain area. This rain-cooled air is very humid; the moisture in the rain-cooled air quickly condenses below the rain-free base to form the wall cloud.  (Possible attack point)

    The rear flank downdraft (RFD) is a downward rush of air on the back side of the storm that descends along with the tornado. The RFD looks like a “clear slot” or “bright slot” just to the rear (southwest) of the wall cloud. It can also look like curtains of rain wrapping around the cloud base circulation. The RFD causes gusty surface winds that occasionally have embedded downbursts. The rear flank downdraft is the motion in the storm that causes the hook echo feature on radar. (Possible attack point)

    A condensation funnel is made up of water droplets and extends downward from the base of the thunderstorm. If it is in contact with the ground it is a tornado; otherwise it is a funnel cloud. Dust and debris beneath the condensation funnel confirm a tornado’s presence. (Possible attack point)

    Coordination between radar, ground observers, and airborne aircraft equipped with suitable chemicals such as dry ice has the potential to disrupt the tornados. An excellent comprehensive list of questions and answers about tornadoes can be found here: http://www.spc.noaa.gov/faq/tornado/

    NSSL is working to simulate storms that produce tornadoes in computer models to better understand how they form and behave. The Air Force could gain tremendous support from the American people if they could calm the tornadoes, lightning, and flooding deaths. Thanks to NSSL.

    Underwater Airport

    UFO Sightings Daily’s Scott C. Waring believes this alien base is connected to all the UFO sightings coming out of Mexico and the entire Central America. This base is huge and it’s no wonder why we hear about so many UFO sightings over Mexico,” he writes. “This base is just 45 miles away from the Mexican coast. The chances of this being an intelligently-made structure I put that at 100 percent.”

    It’s interesting to note the similarity between the structure’s arrangement and that of an airport’s landing strips when viewed from above. However, the sheer size of the tubular structures that make up the underwater network means they must have served a different purpose. It is unfortunate that we might never know what that purpose was, but unless the scientific community decides to investigate the matter in a thorough, transparent way, we’ll remain clueless. Coordinates for the underwater base here.

    NASA Photos from Mars


    Frank Jacobs has found some astounding images of Mars that indicate precision cuts on stone of ancient archeological ruins.

    This image appears to show some type of truck or vehicle carrier. If it represents stone it is obvious the stone has been cut in the past similar to that found on Earth in the building of the pyramids at Giza, Egypt. Speculation suggests Martians left Mars and came to Earth.

    Mars image found by Frank Jacobs shows Mars from space taken by the Hubble telescope. It appears to show clouds or at least strong winds blowing up dust. The pictures indicate some kind of atmosphere.

    Not usually known is that temperatures around the Mars equator in the summer months reach 90 degrees.

    Life apparently existed on Mars and the archeological remains are available for all to see who wish to take the time to investigate the images.

    See the trailer Packing for Mars. Thanks to NASA images.

    The Olmec Heads

    The giant stone heads of the Olmecs found in La Venta, Tres Zpotes and other sites in Mexico can be classed as artifacts of a similar type. These colossal heads carved of black basalt are from 1.5 to 3 meters high (5-10 feet), weighing from 5 to 40 tons. They are placed on stone stands like similar large globes also found in the area. The globes would be easier to role and later carved into heads.

    The nearest basalt quarries are 50 to 100 kilometers (31-62 miles) away. How could a people without a wheeled vehicle or pack animal bring the masses of rock across swamps and jungles to the erection sites?

    These immense faces of La Venta and San Lorenzo have been dated to 1200 BC – another surprise for the historians of science. (CC by SA 3.0)

     The Strange Spheres of Costa Rica

    Another strange discovery was made in Costa Rica, also in the fifties. Hundreds of perfectly shaped spheres made of volcanic rock were scattered in the jungle. Similar spheres have been located in Guatemala and Mexico but nowhere else in the world. A number of questions have been raised with the discovery of these balls. What ancient race could have carved and polished them so perfectly and what was the purpose of them? Or are they natural geological formations as some scientist believe? Some rest on stone platforms, others are arranged in clusters, then again others in geometrical patterns forming triangles, squares or circles. Do they have astronomical significance in the manner of the Stonehenge megaliths?

    The Coming of Tan

    Dr Bruce Cornet writes, “Riley Martin published a book in 1995 by Historicity Productions about his childhood abduction experiences at age seven and older.” Riley was born on 9 May 1946. When I met him in 1995 he came across as very intelligent and artistic.  One could therefore dismiss what he says in 369 page book as the product of imagination.  Yet he goes into so much detail about abduction experience and the types of aliens he met, that one has to wonder where he got all his information, since he only has his GED.  What he reveals in his book is extraordinary, unlike anything you will find in other accounts by abductees and contactees.  If true, he not only remembered everything he saw and learned aboard an enormous mothership that orbits Saturn, which is 40 KM across.  Two major alien races divide up this mothership: The Batavians and the Targzissians.

    The Biavians look very human like but with distinct differences.  The Targzissians closely resemble what anthropologists have identified in ancient civilizations as the Reptilians or Naggas.  I attach five pages from his book on the Targ Terror – May 1988.  Few others have had such contact with this reptilian race as Martin has had.  I also attach some of his figures showing the variety of aliens he met aboard the Biavian MothershipThanks to Bruce Cornet

    The Big Lie

    New York Times bestselling author Dinesh D’Souza is out with a new book aimed at exposing what he calls “The Big Lie” of the progressive Left. 3 to 5 million Democrats in 1930 were in the KKK

    “Ever since Trump, the Left has been accusing him of being a fascist; the Republican Party is the party of Neo-Nazis — all of this is based on the assumption that fascism is on the Right, (that) it’s a ring-wing thing,” D’Souza told CBN News. “What I do in the book is kind of a deep history of fascism and National Socialism. I show, “These have always been on the Left.'”

    In his new book, The Big Lie: Exposing the Nazi Roots of the American Left, D’Souza says it is not the GOP that is the party closely aligned with fascism, but the Democratic Left.

    He makes the claim that Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger inspired Nazi racial theorists. “Margaret Sanger was part of a community in the United States and they were the community of eugenics. Eugenics means you sort of encourage the people you think are fit or successful to have children, and you try to prevent the people you consider to be inferior from breeding at all,” explained D’Souza. Planned Parenthood even now aborts some 500,000 babies a year.

    “So Margaret Sanger supported forced sterilization, and these forced sterilization laws that were promoted in the United States were copied by the Nationalist Socialist Party (Nazis) in 1933 for the notorious Nazi-forced sterilization program,” he continued.

    “And similarly American progressives were advocating what one guy called lethal chambers to kill off people. And the Nazis again established a euthanasia program using lethal chambers and carbon monoxide gas,” he said.

    “If you go to the college campuses you see these groups called Antifa. The name actually stands for anti-fascist, and yet if you look at them they’re wearing costumes; they wear masks; they carry bike locks and baseballs bats as weapons,” D’Souza told CBN.

    “They intimidate. They terrorize. They use violence yet they’re doing it supposedly to fight fascism — except they look like the fascists, they talk like the fascists and they behave like the fascists.”

    D’Souza told CBN News that he was inspired to write this book at this particular time in history because he considers his work the intellectual equivalent of investigative reporting. “I find that there’s fake news and there’s fake scholarship,” he charged. “Fake scholarship is the way in which progressive scholars distort the narrative of American history to serve their political agenda. Part of my work is unmasking and exposing them.”  “It’s a big lie, and that’s the title of the book. When Hitler spoke of the big lie he said small lies can be caught, but sometimes lies are so audacious and so big that you can’t get your head around them so it’s kind of easier to sell a big lie than a small lie and that’s what the Left is doing in America right now,” he said.

    The Washington Times reports, a majority of Americans – 51 percent – now disapprove of the news media’s treatment of President Trump, a sentiment shared by 77 percent of Republicans and even 26 percent of Democrats.

    UFO Sightings in the United States

    Arizona Light

    Tolleson — I was sitting in my backyard having a cigarette and there was a full moon out so I thought I would take a picture of it on August 7, 2017.

    When I went to send it I looked at it this was there. So i took several photos some had this and some didn’t. This happened 2 nights in a row. Do you have any clue what this might be. Thanks to MUFON CMS

    California Object

     Stockton – I was taking photos of the full moon when I noticed a black object flying above the moon and into my shot on August 6, 2017. It made no sound and had no lights. It flew from left to right, then down, then hovered, then back to the left.

    When I got home and dumped photos to computer I noticed that there were actually 3 objects in the photos and sometimes 2.

    They were flying saucer shaped. I kept shooting but the objects were no longer visible. They just vanished. –

    Thanks to MUFON CMS

    Colorado Disc

     Durango — On August 5, 2017, departed on the Durango to Silverton Train at about 9:00 am. As the train was traveling I was taking numerous photos of the breathtaking scenery until we reached Silverton. Later that evening at the motel I downloaded the photos and noticed in one photo that it had some kind of an object in the background. I then zoomed the photo in and noticed it was some type of an object above one of the mountains. I was very surprised and to me it looked like a UFO. The only time I saw the object was in the photo and never noticed it as I took the photo. I still what it could be. Thanks to MUFON CMS

    Georgia Green Light

    About a little before 7:00 pm, I went outside of my house so I could take some photos of the super moon on November 13, 2016. I had my iPhone camera on and I faced towards the east at the moon. Almost immediately I noticed an extra “spot” of light in the photo next to the moon. I raised my phone again and looked through the lens and saw the spot of light, but when I lowered the camera I didn’t see the “spot” by the moon.
    I checked one of the photos then by zooming it out and noticed something that looked like a blue ball next to the moon like. I thought it was funny, because it looked as if the moon had a little planet next to it! I cleaned both phone lenses with an alcohol wipe and looked through the lens and saw the same “light spot.” My son tells me maybe the orb/sphere in my photos is “lens flare.” Later O took more pictures and noticed the sphere would be in different places in relation to the moon. There are 17 total photos and the orb appears clearly in 11 of them and in the rest I just see some colorful streaks or smudges.  Thanks to MUFON CMS

     Illinois Orbs

    Edinburg – Pamela Stark writes I took this photo on August 4, 2017, at 9:04 pm of these possible UFOs.

    My friends were in the sky. Sure did not look like this when I took the picture.

    The one was closer to the Earth than ever before and allot brighter.

    Thanks to Pamela Stark

    Oregon Light

     Forest Grove – On August 6, 2017, at 10 PM, I was given your email by a friend who sent you footage before. I recorded this on Sunday August 6, 2017, in Forest Grove, around 10 PM. It’s a short clip, but at the end you can definitely see it. I have so much more. I would like to share the footage and a story that will blow your mind. But I wanted to send this one first. Thank you for your time. Thanks to William Puckett, Director Http://www.UFOsnw.com

    Texas Discs

    Ben Wheeler — Photos Received August 5, 2017, the aliens are talking to me. I got photos of it and photos of flying disk. They come in through the walls at night. I am in Benwheeler, Texas. I have so much more I can blow your mind. At an old Indian battle ground I got two disk and eight orbs and sixty white things flying around me all on photos. It’s a female alien talking to me. She likes me a lot. She said get ready and she flew out in front of me. I was in a flying disk with her. I am one man that is not a waste of your time. I can change the world with what I got. I got about one hundred photos of alien technology. I have taken about 3,000 photos hunting aliens in three years. My work is convincing for sure. I hate to type all this on text. I can tell you better. Call me when you can any time day or night. I got to get this out. If this is breaking the law, I will get a life sentence that is how good my proof is. I was at an Indian battle ground where 800 Indians were killed by 500 Texans. When I got there I took 360 photos. I got two disks and eight orbs on one photo and got about sixty white square things flying around me of alien technology. Thanks to William Puckett, Director Http://www.UFOsnw.com

    Washington Lights

    Kirkland –, I saw the same thing only it was higher up and on a crystal clear day with a bright blue sky. I was in near Seattle at my nephew’s house. I recorded it in two different sittings and I observed it for a good 10 minutes before it disappeared. I have pictures and videos. I forgot to mention that I spotted it on Tuesday, On July 18, 2017, at 5:27 PM PDT.

    Witness and his nephew were outside and saw the object. The witness then grabbed his cell phone and shot 3 videos and a photo. He is familiar with drones and all concur that the object was not a drone. The witness also stated that one his video clips show the object making a sudden movement downward and to the left. A view of the footage and slowed speed does show that the object may have moved.

    Note: The witness is referring to the sighting of a bright object hovering over Seattle, WA on April 24, 2017. The object is quite likely not the planet Venus. Venus was only 8 degrees above the horizon at the time of the sighting. Also the object disappeared in 10 minutes. It was not a weather balloon or a high altitude balloon because these balloons generally are suspended at a constant height and are generally airborne for several hours. The object vanished in 10 minutes. Thanks to William Puckett, Director Http://www.UFOsnw.com

    Washington DC Disc

    District of Columbia — It flew in front of the capital building while I was watching Fox News on August 14, 2017.

    Fox News did not discuss it.

    Thanks to MUFON CMS

    Worldwide UFO Sightings

    Canada Light

    Prince Edward County — On August 1, 2017, while on vacation in the in southern Ontario I was fishing in a river near the Sandbanks Provincial Park at exactly 8:41 pm. something caught on my eye.

    It was miles away moving quite fast of a very bright and I managed to get one picture as I lost sight of it over the tree line. This sighting lasted only twenty to thirty seconds. Minutes later I noticed a military jet buzzing about that maybe related? Later on August 2, 2017 while on the beach the military jet did a fly by and I took some pictures. Same jet I had seen earlier after the UFO. I have today witnessed 30 sightings this year. Enjoy Paul Shishis

    Croatia Orb

     Korcula — I was on my vacation on Korkyra Island and like every morning I take a ride to the town to get coffee.  I saw a beautiful sunrise above the old town on August 8, 2017, so I stop the car and take a photo with my iPhone. It has live photo and makes two pics in one second. In my iPhone I’m able to click to each photo and then a have a few frames to see before the final photo is shown (like a mini video, a cool feature).
    After few days I wanted to post some photos on Facebook and noticed something strange. I’ve had two pics, one is normal and on the other pops up some flying object from nowhere. The photos were taken just outside the town of Korcula, with a nice view to the Monastery of St. Nikola. It is very clear that ufo on second photo appears out of nowhere. When I realize that maybe I have something I went to my husband to show the photos. He is an amateur but passionate photographer and he was astonished. After closer examination he concluded it’s definitely it is a real flying object. When you use the iPhone feature you can see the movement of the bird in the beam of light in the position above the object so you can actually see the quick time that passed from the moment the 2 photos were taken and also clearly the moment of the appearance of the ufo. It seems to be a small spaceship 3 or 4 meters. If you look at other elements on the photos and compare it the ufo you will see that the bright and dark regions are just perfectly fitting, reflecting the sun correctly since it seems that the ufo is flying at a small angle and little descending, too. The strong light reflecting from the back side must be from some highly reflective material

    Estonia Light

     Lihula — I was in my work place which is a cow farm in a small village on August 12, 2017. I had just gotten there and it was very beautiful sunset so I took out my phone and decided to take some photos but after I had taken the photo I noticed something. There was this weird light in the sky. First I thought it was just a sunlight reflecting on the cloud but it didn’t look like a cloud and it also wasn’t moving. So I just stood there trying to figure out what it is. After some minutes the clouds started covering it and I took quickly one more photo. Finally I could not see it anymore and so I just left. I still have no idea what it could have been. If you zoom in the picture it almost looks like there is some oval object with light around it. Thanks to MUFON CMS

    UK England Light

     Disley — We were visiting Lyme Park on August 13, 2017. It was a sunny day with only some high cirrus-clouds at the time. We sat down in the garden to look at the estate and took some pictures. After lying down in the grass I saw a plane flying by at high and behind it I saw a bright star. This was odd, because it was 3:45 PM and neither moon nor stars were visible.

    The star changed brightness perhaps it was a satellite or the ISS. After a few minutes some cirrus clouds past in front of it and although the ‘star’ was a bit less visible, you could still see it changing in brightness. I tried to focus on it -after the clouds were gone- with my camera 200 mm lens and took a photograph. I took a second photograph and at zooming in I saw that it had a shape.
    When I looked up again, some more cirrus clouds passed but the object had disappeared. Thanks to MUFON CMS

    Stonehenge — I have a photo taken on August 5, 2017, that I later have noticed what could possibly be a UFO sighting.

    I did not hear or notice anything on the day so whatever it was must have been quietly hovering. It was only after reviewing the photos a few days later I noticed what could be something unusual.
    Thanks to William Puckett, Director Http://www.UFOsnw.com

    Uruguay Disc

     MontevideoI’m a spotter, I take pictures with airplanes, and it’s a hobby. I heard a plane; it was a C-130 of the Uruguayan Air Force, clearly a military airplane. I run to get my camera and I take two pictures. When I finish taking the photos, I look directly at the plane and see those objects that also appear in the attached images, I thought of dirt, file with errors, birds, flight in formation among other possibilities.
    In the photo you can check the EXIF ​​information of the photos.
    That has never happened to me. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to send you this information.
    The objects are shaped like rice, oval, like a plate, they are gray, Thanks to MUFON CMS

    8 Very Early UFO Photos Taken Before Photoshop

    by 

    The vast majority of UFOs that aren't lens flares or natural objects are probably drones or some form of advanced government technology. Think about it – over 60 years ago our government built the atomic bomb in an underground city (the Manhattan Project) – God knows what insidious teleporting and nanotechnology they're up to now!

    There is a tiny percentage of UFO cases that have no rational explanation. These UFOs could actually be of extraterrestrial origin, and some of the most interesting evidence comes in the form of old photos that were taken before the age of drones and Photoshop – when there really shouldn't have been anything up there flying around besides early planes, and when complex photo manipulation was next to impossible.

    Here are some of the most compelling old UFO pics. Real or not, they're still fascinating documents from a cosmic blip in time on the planet Earth, somewhere in the Milky Way galaxy…

    1. The Oldest UFO Photo Ever - Mt. Washington, New Hampshire 1870
    The Oldest UFO Photo Ever - Mt. Washington, New Hampshire 1870
    One of the oldest and best UFO sightings on record (Photo Source)
    This photograph depicts a cloud formation over the summit of Mt. Washington in the Winter of 1870 - 1871. The image is part of an antique stereoview that happens to contain an unexplained cigar-shaped object. 

    It is simultaneously the oldest and one of the best UFO sightings on record. Remember, there were no planes in the sky in 1870 and no digital manipulation.

    In 2002, this image was purchased on Ebay for $385.00 by Samuel M. Sherman, president of Independent-International Pictures Corp. (Source)
    2. TIENSTEN, HOPEH PROVINCE, CHINA - 1942
    TIENSTEN, HOPEH PROVINCE, CHINA - 1942
    War II-era photo discovered in old Chinese scrapbook (Photo Source)

    This World War II-era photo was discovered in an old Chinese scrapbook. It was taken by a sidewalk photographer, who snapped a picture of the strange object and then sold it. It shows a UFO in the sky above a Tsientsien Street and there appears to be at least one person pointing at it. (Source)

    3. Farming UFO Photo, USA - 1920s
    Farming UFO Photo, USA - 1920s
    Look to the northeast of the horse-drawn transport (Photo Source)

    The only thing known about this picture is that it was taken somewhere in the United States in the early 1920s. The hilly terrain indicates that it could be on either the west or east coast, and is less likely in the central flat part of the country. 

    Wherever this is, the object up and to the right of the horse-drawn transport looks to be a flying object in the sky at a time when biplanes were rare and monoplanes didn't quite exist yet. (Source)

    4. WARD, COLORADO Sawmill, USA - APRIL, 1929
    WARD, COLORADO Sawmill, USA - APRIL, 1929
    Object that preceded a “terrible thunderous bellow” (Photo Source)

    Better photo context HERE...

    Taken at the Ward sawmill. The man in the picture (featured in the above link), who died a few years later, said there was a “terrible thunderous bellow” and then a large object rose up in the near distance and flew off. (Source)

    5. Vancouver City Hall UFO - 1937
    Vancouver City Hall UFO - 1937

    The story goes that 21-year-old soldier Leonard Lamoreux snapped this image in 1937 while visiting the brand new Vancouver City Hall.

    Here's the full description:

    "The two were suddenly astounded to see a 'bright bright blue light' drop straight down from the sky. It became larger as it did so and they were able to observe the source of the light as an object that Leonard described as 'two saucers' open ends facing each other, glowing bright blue. The object then moved 'dead straight' horizontally across the sky. When it just appeared to clear the flagpole on the roof of the City Hall it came to an almost dead stop and Leonard clicked the shutter on the camera. The object then shot straight back up into the sky. 'They never seen anything fly so fast!' This scared them to death and they ran from the scene. The object made no sound."

    It's important to note that this photo has no negative in existence and the UFO could very well be a “watermark defect that appeared during the development of the print.” (Source | Photo)

    6. ROSETTA/NATAL, SOUTH AFRICA - JULY, 1956
    ROSETTA/NATAL, SOUTH AFRICA - JULY, 1956
    Authenticated photo taken by meteorologist in 1956 (Photo Source)

    This photo is one of seven taken by meteorologist Elizabeth Klarer just before a thunderstorm. Its authenticity has been confirmed in a notarized affadavit and she stood by her story until she died in 1994 at the age of 83. 

    I'd be remiss not to add that Elizabeth also claimed she was impregnated during a later encounter with a spaceship pilot. (Source)

    7. The Battle of Los Angeles - 1942
    The Battle of Los Angeles - 1942
    The infamous Battle of Los Angeles UFO (Photo Source)

    One of the classics. This image portrays searchlights and anti-craft shells converging on a UFO during what would later be called The Battle of Los Angeles. Though visually stunning, this image is almost certainly not evidence of extraterrestrials. Most analysts believe this was a combination of heightened tensions with the Japanese and a weather balloon. 

    But have you ever watched the Fox TV Series, Fringe? Maybe someone is observing our reactions to these kinds of spectacles, studying us in some kind of experiment....you never know. 

    It's also worth pointing out that although the object took direct hits from ballistics, it never fell from the sky. (Source)

    Earth Looks Like A Living Creature In This Amazing NASA Video

    IN BRIEF
    A timelapse simulation from NASA's Scientific Visualization Studio (SVS) depicts seven days in 2005 when a category-4 typhoon developed off the coast of China.

    NASA’s Scientific Visualization Studio (SVS) has released a stunning video that shows Earth in a way you may have never seen before.

    The video is a timelapse simulation that depicts seven days in 2005 when a category-4 typhoon developed off the coast of China. The seven-day period is repeated several times during the course of the visualization.

    Scientists used data from NASA’s Goddard Earth Observing System Model, Version 5 (GEOS-5), to depict the simulation’s volume-rendered clouds. This particular run of the simulation, called 7km GEOS-5 Nature Run (7km-G5NR), was executed on a supercomputer. This short visualization produced petabytes of output and referenced nearly a terabyte of brickmap files.

    According to the SVS website, the goal of videos like the above is to provide the public with a clearer picture of our planet and our own place within it, as well as give people an idea of what NASA is all about: “The SVS works closely with scientists in the creation of visualizations, animations, and images in order to promote a greater understanding of Earth and space science research activities at Goddard Space Flight Center and within the NASA research community.”

    Based on this video, I’d say that they seem to have gotten things right.

    UFO sighting caught on tape over El Paso, Texas

    ufos-el-paso

    Here’s one interesting daytime footage of a bright lights in the sky above El Paso in Texas. This was filmed on 19th March 2017.

    Witness report: 

    Observed several round, reflective spheres ascending in sky. Continued watching them assume a pattern as they moved slowly from my sight. Sunday March 19 2017, while instructing a martial arts class at Eastwood park, El Paso TX, I stopped to drink some water. As I threw my head back to swig from the water bottle I noticed a series of perhaps 6 bright reflective balls, ascending quickly in a row, but curving in a C shaped flight pattern while ascending. They were not floating like balloons but rising rapidly. That caught my attention for sure ! It was midday and I marveled at this sight. From my initial vantage point, it looked like this string of spheres had started low to the ground. Within seconds they had reached an altitude of approx. 3000 ft. I work in army aviation and am fairly confident of the alt. Several of the spheres shot straight up and out of sight the remainder seemed to float aimlessly into a pattern. That’s when I grabbed my iPad and took the video. I clearly filmed what I thought were 3 spheres which had formed a triangular pattern, but in the video I see one or two more . One of my students also witnessed this event, but not from the beginning, only after he saw me run for the iPad and start filming. We both agreed this was high strangeness. The event ended with the spheres gradually moving in an eastern direction out of sight , while still in a triangular pattern. One of the objects appeared to be more reflective than the others. I have ruled out reflective balloons based on the way they flew. And the wind direction seems to have been out of the NE that day. Not sure what these spheres were. I got the feeling they were under controlled flight.

    Video of Triangular-shaped Craft Spotted over the UK

    triangle-ufo

    Sightings of bizarre triangular-shaped UFOs are being reported day by day, leading to claims that aliens could be visiting the Earth in the mysterious crafts. Unidentified flying objects come in all sizes and shapes, from a flying saucer that looks like cartoons up to cigar-shaped space ships. Triangular-shaped objects are another common breed, with the more famous encounters occurring in the 1980s and 1990s. Accounts of silent and large triangular-shaped crafts are now being reported every week, with hundreds of videos, photos, and drawings resurfacing every single day.

    riangular-shaped aliens have been spotted all over the world, with notable sightings documented in South Carolina, California, Maryland, Texas, Buenos Aires, Virginia, and the United Kingdom.
    A bus driver saw a strange video footage of three aircraft. According to the latter, the strange object seen in the footage appears to make any altering triangle formation in the skies above the Exmouth. In fact, it formed a triangular pattern wobbling slightly and rotating on its axis. Currently, the case was being examined by the UFO specialist and investigators on April 17. The witness firmly believed that the object was not normal. Though he was already interested with aliens and extraterrestrials before, this does not hinder his credibility as an eyewitness of a strange sighting. He admitted, however, that his camera had a hard time focusing on te formation due to the street lights. He moved closer to the river for a better view and was able to shot a footage which lasted for 2 minutes and 40 seconds. Afterward, he took seven photos and shot another 41-second video. He even shared his difficulty in going back to the bus and saw four people getting out of the car. He managed to point out the object to the people, but they seem not very interested.

    Sightings of mysterious triangle spaceships do not appear to be the reason for any injury or harm.

    Mysterious ‘Apocalyptic’ Cloud Appears Over Brazil

    Yes, I know … if it was truly ‘apocalyptic’, why are we here reading about it? That’s a good question – one of many we’ll try to answer as we look at a cloud that appeared over Brazil recently that looked pretty sinister to Brazilians and ‘apocalyptic’ to headline writers.

    The mysterious cloud appeared on the evening of August 17th over Teixeira de Freitas, located at the southern in of the state of Bahia on Brazil’s Atlantic coast. It’s claim to fame until the possible apocalyptic sign has been its rapidly expanding array of large eucalyptus plantations which feed an expanding array of factories processing the plant for cellulose.

    The primary witness to the eerie cloud was João Paulo Magalhães, who says he captured it on video at about 5 pm in the Santa Rita neighborhood of Teixeira de Freitas. He posted it on Facebook and gave this description:

    It really looked like the entrance to a meteorite or something. I was scared too, we thought it would form a tornado.

    “We” as in the other people who were with him at the petrol station where he saw the phenomenon. Magalhães was apparently not the only witness to record the cloud with his phone as other pictures soon appeared on the Internet. The reports with the photos said that the ominous-looking cloud dissipated after about five minutes — reducing fears and increasing speculations, especially with the full eclipse of the sun just four days away – even though it would not be seen in Brazil … no sense wasting a good opportunity to connect remote dots. That’s what many media outlets did with their “apocalyptic” headlines.

    Another view of the mysterious cloud

    Cooler heads – i.e., meteorologists who have their heads in the clouds as part of their job – looked at the photos and proclaimed the phenomenon to be nothing more than a “dust cloud”

    A dust cloud. Move along. Nothing apocalyptic to see here. Well, that’s a relief. Or is it? No one gave any explanation for what caused the “dust cloud.” Dust clouds are not normal meteorological events. As mentioned before, Teixeira de Freitas has a booming eucalyptus economy that is controversial because the non-native plant is a huge consumer of water yet is ironically a big fire hazard because eucalyptus oil is highly flammable. Was this ‘dust cloud’ the result of a fire or dry conditions that those possibly responsible (agribusiness and factories) wanted covered up?

    The residents of Teixeira de Freitas should demand more answers about this “dust cloud.” Ignoring the impact of business on the ecology of Brazil is a true apocalypse.

    ‘Massale UFO-waarneming’ in Phoenix. Wat hebben mensen hier vastgelegd?

    In Phoenix in de Amerikaanse staat Arizona zouden afgelopen week onbekende objecten in de lucht zijn waargenomen. Er wordt gesproken van een massale UFO-waarneming.

    In onderstaand filmpje zijn vijf objecten te zien die in formatie door de lucht vliegen. Joe Martino van Collective Evolution schrijft dat dit één van de duidelijkste en meest intrigerende UFO-filmpjes is die hij ooit heeft gezien.

    In april werden er ook al UFO’s gesignaleerd in Arizona. Toen legde Mauricio Morales vreemde objecten vast terwijl hij onderweg naar Phoenix was.

    Niet het geval

    Een bericht dat hij op Facebook plaatste werd in korte tijd vele duizenden keren gedeeld. Uiteindelijk berichtten ook de media erover, maar zij claimden dat het ging om een meteoor.

    “ABC15 meldt dat de foto’s een meteoor tonen. Dat is niet het geval,” reageerde Morales.

    Martino merkt op dat veel mensen UFO’s zien, maar er geen melding van maken. Of ze zien een UFO en leggen het object niet vast op beeld.

    Bekijk het filmpje van de vijf objecten hieronder:

    Phoenix Lights

    Op 13 maart 1997 werden in het luchtruim boven Phoenix in Arizona de zogeheten Phoenix Lights gezien, een reeks massaal gemelde UFO’s.

    Het incident is één van de best gedocumenteerde UFO-meldingen. Er werden foto’s en video’s gemaakt en CNN deed er verslag van.

    Niet van deze wereld

    Meer dan 700 ooggetuigen beweerden dat ze toen driehoekige UFO’s hadden gezien met vijf bolvormige lampen of lichtgevende motoren.

    Fife Symington, de toenmalige gouverneur van Arizona, was één van de ooggetuigen. Later beschreef hij de objecten als ‘niet van deze wereld’.

    Nieuwe graancirkel in Essex verwijst naar zonsverduistering. Wat betekenen deze vreemde symbolen?

    In Sutton Hall in het Engelse graafschap Essex is een intrigerende graancirkel verschenen die lijkt te verwijzen naar de totale zonsverduistering die vandaag te zien is.

    De formatie is op 17 augustus ontdekt, maar het is nog niet duidelijk wat de betekenis ervan is, schrijft Collective Evolution.

    De graancirkel doet denken aan een zendmast met een schotelantenne. In de schotelantenne is een zonsverduistering te zien.

    Timing
    Nieuwe graancirkel in Essex verwijst naar zonsverduistering. Wat betekenen deze symbolen?

    Symbolen (Crop Circle Connector)

    Betekent dit dat we een radioboodschap van iets of iemand gaan ontvangen?

    Verder zijn in drie verschillende ‘kolommen’ een aantal symbolen te zien die zijn verdeeld in meerdere ‘blokken’. Het is onduidelijk wat al deze symbolen betekenen.

    De onderzijde van de ‘zendmast’ wijst richting London Southend Airport.

    Hoewel we nog niet weten wat deze graancirkel betekent, is de timing interessant.

    Smalle strook

    De zonsverduistering is vandaag zichtbaar vanuit een smalle strook die vrijwel diagonaal over de VS loopt.

    Vele miljoenen mensen zullen er getuige van zijn hoe het felle oppervlak van de zon gedurende enkele minuten wordt afgedekt door de maan.

    Zeldzame verschijnsel

    Het is voor het eerst sinds 1979 dat er vanuit de VS een totale zonsverduistering te zien is.

    De eclips zal naar verwachting leiden tot enorme files en verkeersopstoppingen. Alle Amerikaanse media besteden uitgebreid aandacht aan dit zeldzame verschijnsel.

    Apocalyptische wolk gespot boven Brazilië. Kijk hoe lokale bewoners erop reageerden

    Brazilianen keken donderdagmiddag raar op toen ze een mysterieuze wolk in de lucht zagen. Sommigen dachten dat het een teken van onheil was.

    Op het eerste gezicht lijkt de wolk op het spoor van een meteoriet of een tornado, schrijft zender RT.

    Joao Paulo Magalhaes legde de wolkformatie in al zijn glorie vast boven de stad Teixeira de Freitas in de deelstaat Bahia.

    Werk van God

    Magalhaes zei dat de ‘zeer ongewone’ wolk slechts vier minuten te zien was. Mensen waren bezorgd dat de formatie een tornado zou vormen.

    “Het leek echt op het spoor van een meteoriet of zoiets,” zei hij. Ook andere inwoners van de stad plaatsten foto’s van het fenomeen. Sommigen spraken van het ‘werk van God’.

    Massive UFO and Multi Level Structure appear near the Sun

    NASA’s SOHO satellite LASCO C2 has transmitted some images of strange anomalies very close to the sun on August 20, 2017.

    A massive anomaly appears at 07.48 and seems to be a multi level structure containing a number of square/rectangular looking entrances, then at 08.12 a huge unknown object (UFO?) appears at the same spot upon which the object and the structure disappear moments later.


    It looks like the structure is not connected to the sun and although it seems unlikely, could it be that a UFO flies into an interdimensional portal or maybe the multi level structure is a giant extraterrestrial mothership with hangars/landing platforms for incoming or outgoing UFO’s?


    Whatever it may have been, both objects certainly were not high-energy particles called neutrinos coming from the sun. Interestingly, the images of the unknown objects have been captured a few hours before the onset of the solar eclipse on August 21, 2017.

    NASA: “We’re Going to Try and Make Oxygen From the Atmosphere on Mars”


    Image result for MARS 2020 ROVER MODEL VIDEO
    IN BRIEF
    For any Mars exploration plans, surviving on the Red Planet is as important as getting there. This is why NASA is looking forward to its Mars 2020 Rover mission, which would include a test for making oxygen on the Red Planet's surface.

    SMALL STEPS FOR MAN

    Getting humans to land on Mars is the biggest space project this generation will ever see. Such a bold endeavor—getting humans to another world—comes with a cornucopia of nitty-gritty details to iron out. These details need to be set before we can even begin to proceed with a manned mission.

    The most obvious is the need to build rockets and spacecraft able to ferry probes (carrying food and other supplies) and people. For NASA’s mission to Mars, this also entails the construction of a lunar space station that’ll serve as a jump-off point to the rest of the solar system.

    Speaking to Futurism after the successful launch of SpaceX’s CRS-12 mission on Monday, NASA Acting Chief Administrator Robert Lightfoot, Jr. explained how getting to Mars requires small, incremental steps, and he noted that NASA has a remarkable project in the works. “When you look at our plans today [for getting to Mars], we use the International Space Station as much as we can…for example, our life support systems, we test them up there.” He added that the Moon would be the next logical step in this process.

    But getting to Mars and surviving there are two disparate yet equally important aspects of the same mission. “We try and make sure that, when we do a science mission or a human spaceflight mission, that we have a cross between the science and the human exploration,” Lightfoot explained.

    MAKING LIFE POSSIBLE

    Now no one wants to fly to Mars, land on the ground, yawp “I did it!”and then turn around and head home. Space exploration is more than symbolic pretense. We want to stay on Mars and install a colony. Of course, the eventual plan is to terraform Mars, but that could take thousands of years to accomplish — if it’s at all possible.

    So, in Lightfoot’s mind, we ought to start small, and there’s nothing more basic for survival on Mars (or anywhere) than having a secure source of air to breathe. “The next lander that is going to Mars, Mars 2020, has an experiment where we are going to try and actually generate oxygen out of the atmosphere on Mars, clearly that’s for human capability down the road,” Lightfoot said.

    nasa mars oxygen

    What we know is that the Red Planet’s atmosphere is thinner than Earths, with some 95.32 percent carbon dioxide, 2.7 percent nitrogen, 1.6 percent argon, and about 0.13 oxygen, plus a bunch of other elements in even smaller amounts. By contrast, the Earth’s atmosphere has 78 percent nitrogen and 21 percent oxygen. Water won’t be much of a problem, though.

    Is it possible to make oxygen from Mar’s atmosphere?  NASA’s had plans for this since 2014, when it first revealed the Mars 2020 Rover. It involves bringing some microbial life to Mars, perhaps bacteria or algae, that would would use Martian soil as fuel and then pump out oxygen as a product. The oxygen could then be harnessed and made available for breathing and also to make rocket fuel for return flights to Earth.

    It may sound like science fiction right now, but lab experiments have shown that it’s possible. That’s why the Mars 2020 Rover mission is crucial. Other efforts to make Mars habitable include plans of building a magnetic shield around the planet, similar to Earth’s, building a nuclear reactor, as well as growing potatoes like in Matt Damon in The Martian.

    Millions of people will gaze at the Great American Eclipse on Aug. 21, shooting photographs and taking selfies. A thousand years ago, early Pueblo people, called Chacoans, captured their experiences of a total solar eclipse by carving it into a rock — a circle with looping streamers that resemble the sun's outer atmosphere, or corona.

    A woman in Arizona who was born without a vagina — the result of a rare condition — is speaking out about her condition, and raising money for a surgery to treat it.

    People with this condition are genetically female (meaning they have two X chromosomes), and have normally functioning ovaries. They also have normal external genitalia, and so the condition is usually discovered only when women do not get their period, as was the case for Moats. [Read more about the rare condition.]

    Whiskey connoisseurs have long thought that mixing a few drops of water with the drink could enhance its flavor.

    Many historical figures have waxed poetic over whiskey. For instance, playwright George Bernard Shaw opined that "whisky is liquid sunshine," while author Mark Twain thought "too much of anything is bad, but too much good whiskey is barely enough." [Read more about the drink.]

    So far, dogs seem to be the only animals affected by the blue dye. But animal rights activists said that other animals, including birds and reptiles, may also be affected. [Read more about the pollution.]

    More than 2,000 years before the Great American Solar Eclipse, which will darken the skies over the U.S. on Aug. 21, astronomers in ancient Greece developed their own "supercomputer" to predict eclipses just like this one.

    Though the mysterious astronomical calculator's 2,000 years under the sea have corroded it, scientists have used 3D imaging to reveal some of the text on the box, which provides instructions on how to use it, according to a 2016 study published in the journal Almagest.

    Total solar eclipses have inspired wonder and awe throughout history, with the first known reference to an eclipse dating back about 5,000 years. But when the moon passes between Earth and the sun and darkens skies across the United States on Aug. 21, there will be one major difference between modern-day skywatchers and ancient cultures that witnessed the same celestial phenomenon: We'll have much less fear.

    Bionic Contacts: Goodbye Glasses. Hello Vision That’s 3x Better Than 20/20

    Eye, Iris, Algae, Macro, Blur, Natural, Girl, Eyebrows 
    IN BRIEF
    The Ocumetics Bionic Lens essentially replaces a person's natural eye lens, given them the ability to see three times better than 20/20 vision. Though not yet available to the public, human trials are expected to begin on the lenses in July 2017.

    A CLEAR PROBLEM

    Most of us take our vision for granted. As a result, we take the ability to read, write, drive, and complete a multitude of other tasks for granted. However, unfortunately, sight is not so easy for everyone.

    For many people, simply seeing is a struggle. In fact, more than 285 million people worldwide have vision problems, according to the World Health Organization (WHO).

    Cataracts account for about a third of these. The National Eye Institute reports that more than half of all Americans will have cataracts or will have had cataract surgery by the time they are 80, and in low- and middle-income countries, they’re the leading cause of blindness.

    But now, people with vision problems may have new hope.

    A WELCOME SIGHT

    Soon, cataracts may be the thing of the past, and even better, it may be possible to see a staggering three times better than 20/20 vision. Oh, and you could do it all without wearing glasses or contacts.

    So what exactly does having three times better vision mean? If you can currently read a text that is 10 feet away, you would be able to read the same text from 30 feet away. What’s more, people who currently can’t see properly might be able to see a lot better than the average person.

    This development comes thanks to the Ocumetics Bionic Lens. This dynamic lens essentially replaces a person’s natural eye lens. It’s placed into the eye via a saline-filled syringe, after which it unravels itself in under 10 seconds.

    It may sound painful, but Dr. Garth Webb, the optometrist who invented the Ocumetics Bionic Lens, says that the procedure is identical to cataract surgery and would take just about eight minutes. He adds that people who have the specialized lenses surgically inserted would never get cataracts and that the lenses feel natural and won’t cause headaches or eyestrain.

    The Bionic Lens may sound like a fairy tale (or sci-fi dream), but it’s not. It is actually the end result of years and years of research and more than a little funding — so far, the lens has taken nearly a decade to develop and has cost US$3 million.

    There is still some ways to go before you will be able to buy them, but if the timeline Webb offered in an interview with Eye Design Optometry holds up, human studies will begin in July 2017, and the bionic lenses will be available to the public in March 2018.

    Enormous Pyramid Just Discovered in Antarctica Could Change How We Look At History Forever

    Google Earth: It’s good for more than just looking at aerial views of where your ex is living now.

    As it turns out, it’s good for a whole lot more, actually: Recently, Google Earth satellite imagery discovered a constellation of three snow-covered pyramids in Antarctica. Scientists and researchers are, admittedly, rather taken aback.

    Two of the three pyramids are about 10 miles inland, while the third is directly near the coastline.

    The implications? Well, this discovery could end up re-writing our entire history. No research has ever mentioned a civilization in Antarctica, much less one with the technological know-how to construct pyramids. So, how did these pyramids get there? That answer requires a look back in time.

    As any 3rd-grader knows, Antarctica is cold. Really cold. Frozen, actually, at least until climate change has something to say about it. But it wasn’t always this way; over millions of years, Antarctica has drifted from a position closer to the equator to its present perma-frozen location. The British Antarctic Survey backs this up:

    with doctor Vanessa Bowman saying “Go back 100 million years ago, and Antarctica was covered in lush rainforests similar to those that exist in New Zealand today.

    NASA seems to agree, too. In an expedition to Antarctica’s Lake Vida, they discovered unexpected microbial lifeforms trapped under a 65-foot-thick sheet of ice. They resemble descendants of microorganisms from much warmer climates.

    Today’s technology couldn’t begin to touch the idea of building a pyramid in Antarctica. Manpower and logistics alone would tank the project before it even started. Clearly, these pyramids were built in the past — a time when Antarctica was inhabited.

    Which presents a tremendously complicated problem for our view of history: About 100 million years ago, someone was building pyramids on the Antarctica that was then located at the equator. With estimates of human civilization not stretching back even close to far enough to account for this, maybe it’s time we start looking for some different timelines.

    Egyptian pyramids are still a point of fascination for generations of modern humans. They’ve stood the test of time. So what of these even-more-ancient pyramids? What might we learn of their builders, should we go explore them?

    Strangely, this wouldn’t have occurred without climate change — making it, officially, the only time that I’ve had reason to be happy that it’s so much hotter outside every year.

    7 Ancient Sites Some People Think Were Built by Aliens

    These spots might not have been crafted by extraterrestrials, but that doesn’t mean they’re not out of this world.

    Clouds roll over Easter Island's monolithic statues.

    By 

    Planet Earth is home to some spectacular relics from bygone eras, constructions that seem to defy the technological capabilities of their time either because they’re too big, too heavy, or too complex.

    As such, some suggest the ancient builders of the Egyptian pyramids, the Nasca lines, and others were following an extraterrestrial instruction manual. Perhaps the hands that crafted these sites weren’t really of this world.

    To be sure, it’s fun to think about whether aliens have visited Earth. After all, humans are on the threshold of expanding our reach in space, and places like Mars are in our sight. But the truth is, there’s no evidence suggesting that aliens have ever been here. And invoking a supernatural explanation for some of the most monumental of human achievements means skipping over the fascinating ways in which prehistoric civilizations managed to make some of the largest and most enigmatic constructions on Earth.

    1. SACSAYHUAMÁN

    The ancient fortress of Sacsayhuamán contrasts with Cusco's modern buildings. 

    PHOTOGRAPH BY HEIKO MEYER, LAIF/REDUX

    Outside the old Inca capital of Cusco, a fortress called Sacsayhuamán rests in the Peruvian Andes. Built from enormous stones that have been chiseled and stacked together like a jigsaw puzzle, some say Sacsayhuamán could be the work of an ancient civilization that had a little help from interstellar friends.

    The 1,000-year-old interlocking fortress walls are made of rocks that weigh as much as 360 tons each, and which were carried more than 20 miles before being lifted and fit into place with laser-like precision.

    How an ancient culture accomplished such a feat of engineering is a fun little problem to solve; turns out the Inca were as adept at building houses and fortified complexes as they were at watching the sky and keeping calendars. In fact, Sacsayhuamán isn’t the only example of this intricate masonry: Similar walls exist throughout the Inca Empire, including one in Cusco where a 12-angled stone has been carefully wedged into place.

    More recently, archaeologists have uncovered traces of the rope-and-lever system the Inca used to transport stones from their quarries to their cities—a system that relied on strength and ingenuity, rather than alien architects.

    2. NASCA LINES

    A plane glides over an ancient spider geoglyph in the Peruvian desert.

    On a high and dry plateau some 200 miles southeast of Lima, more than 800 long, straight white lines are etched into the Peruvian desert, seemingly at random. Joining them are 300 geometric shapes and 70 figures of animals, including a spider, monkey, and hummingbird.

    The longest of the lines run straight as an arrow for miles. The biggest shapes stretch nearly 1,200 feet across and are best viewed from the air. Scientists suspect the Nasca drawings are as many as two millennia old, and because of their age, size, visibility from above, and mysterious nature, the lines are often cited as one of the best examples of alien handiwork on Earth. Otherwise, how would an ancient culture have been able to make such huge designs in the desert without being able to fly? And why?

    Turns out, it’s rather easy to understand the how. Called geoglyphs, these enigmatic designs are made by removing the top, rust-colored layer of rocks and exposing the brighter white sand underneath.

    The why is a bit tougher to comprehend. First studied in the early 1900s, the designs were initially suspected to be aligned with constellations or solstices, but more recent work suggests the Nasca lines point to ceremonial or ritual sites related to water and fertility. And in addition to being visible from the air, the shapes can be seen from surrounding foothills.

    3. EGYPTIAN PYRAMIDS

    The sun sets over the Giza necropolis on the outskirts of Cairo, Egypt.

    Just outside Cairo, in Giza, the most famous of Egypt’s pyramids rise from the desert. Built more than 4,500 years ago, the Pyramids at Giza are monumental tombs where ancient queens and pharaohs were buried.

    But how, exactly, did the Egyptians build these things? The Great Pyramid is made of millions of precisely hewn stones weighing at least two tons each. Even with today’s cranes and other construction equipment, building a pyramid as big as that of Pharaoh Khufu would be a formidable challenge.

    And then there’s the astronomical configuration of the pyramids, which is said to align with the stars in Orion’s belt. As well, alien theorists often point to the fact that these three pyramids are in way better shape than others built centuries later (never mind the amount of work that has gone into preserving them over the past several centuries).

    So are Egypt’s pyramids artifacts of aliens? Not exactly. It’s true that scientists aren’t quite sure how the ancient Egyptians build the pyramids—and especially how they did it so quickly—but there’s ample evidence that these tombs are the work of thousands of earthly hands.

    4. STONEHENGE

    A huge circle of stones, some weighing as much as 50 tons, sits in the English countryside outside Salisbury. Known as Stonehenge, the Neolithic monument inspired Swiss author Erich von Däniken to suggest it was a model of the solar system that also functioned as an alien landing pad—after all, how else could those massive stones have ended up hundreds of miles from their home quarry?

    No one knows what, exactly, the meaning of Stonehenge is, but, as with all the other sites in this collection, the explanation is not aliens. Instead, scientists have demonstrated it’s actually possible to build such a thing using technologies that would have been around 5,000 years ago, when the earliest structures at the site were built.

    And now, it appears as though the stones are aligned with solstices and eclipses, suggesting the Stonehenge builders were at least keeping an eye on the heavens, even if they didn’t come from above.

    5. TEOTIHUACÁN

    Teotihuacán’s Pyramid of the Sun rises up against the cobalt sky in Mexico City. 

    Teotihuacán, meaning the "City of the Gods," is a sprawling, ancient city in Mexico that’s best known for its pyramidal temples and astronomical alignments. Built more than 2,000 years ago, Teotihuacán’s age, size, and complexity can make it seem otherworldly, but it’s very much the work of humans.

    Scientists suspect that over centuries, a mix of cultures including Maya, Zapotec, and Mixtec built the city that could house more than 100,000 people. With its murals, tools, transportation system, and evidence of advanced agricultural practices, Teotihuacán is often considered much more technologically developed than should have been possible in pre-Aztec Mexico.

    By far, the most well known of Teotihuacán’s buildings is the massive Pyramid of the Sun. One of the largest such constructions in the Western Hemisphere, the pyramid’s curious alignment is believed to be based on calendrical cycles.

    6. EASTER ISLAND

    Moai dot the grassy hills of Easter Island, a Chilean territory located in the southeastern Pacific. 

    The enigmas surrounding the moai, Easter Island’s fleet of large stone figures, pretty much follow the same narrative as the other sites described here: How in the world did the Rapa Nui make these figures more than 1,000 years ago? And how did the moai end up on Easter Island?

    Carved from stone, the nearly 900 human figures are sprinkled along the flanks of the island’s extinct volcanoes. The figures average 13 feet tall and weigh 14 tons and appear to have been chiseled from the soft volcanic tuff found in the Rano Raraku quarry. There, more than 400 statues are still in various states of construction, with some completed figures awaiting transportation to their intended resting place.

    The reasons for carving the moai are mysterious, though they were likely sculpted for religious or ritual reasons. It’s also not exactly clear what happened to the stone-crafting Rapa Nui, but a leading theory suggests their civilization succumbed to an environmental disaster of their own making … which is something that probably could have been prevented had ancient aliens bestowed their infinite wisdom upon the culture.

    7. THE FACE ON MARS

    NASA's Viking 1 orbiter took this photograph of Mars in 1976. Shadows in the rock formation create an illusion of a human face. 

    If Elon Musk has his way, humans will be capable of visiting the “face on Mars” sometime this century. Spotted by the Viking 1 orbiter in 1976, the so-called face is nearly two miles long and is in a region called Cydonia, which separates the smooth plains of the Martian north from the more cratered terrain in the south. At the time, scientists dismissed the “face” as shadow play, but over the decades it has become a favorite among those who suspect aliens with a penchant for building things have been visiting the solar system.

    In 2001, NASA’s Mars Global Surveyor took another good look at the face—using a much higher resolution camera—and saw … no face. Turns out that what had appeared to be a face is just another boring old Martian mesa, kind of like the landforms that litter the U.S. Southwest.

    But that doesn’t mean it wouldn’t be fun to visit.

    Scientists Discover Egyptian Secret to Making the Pyramids

    IN BRIEF
    Researchers from the University of Amsterdam think they may have solved the mystery of how the Egyptians constructed the pyramids. They believe that the ancient builders could have use sleds to transport the massive stones after adding water to the sand in front of the sled.

    AN ANCIENT MYSTERY

    Scientists are plagued by a number of questions regarding ancient times, and one of the most perplexing is how the ancient Egyptians moved the huge stones needed to build the pyramids. The stones often weighed as much as 2.5 tons, and without the assistance of modern technology, moving an object of that size and weight is a truly amazing feat.

    A number of individuals have proposed different ways this task could have been accomplished — alien builders is probably one of the more far-fetched. Now, it seems that we finally have a clear answer, and no, it does not involve extraterrestrials.

    Researches from the University of Amsterdam think this ancient architectural mystery may have a rather simple solution: water.

    Ultimately, the problem of moving these massive stones comes down to decreasing the amount of friction. In order to transport materials, ancient peoples would often utilize large sleds. Much like individuals who use sled-dogs in snowy climates, these sleds enabled dessert dwellers to carry a lot of material a long distance across the desert sands.

    However, if you try to transport something really heavy (say, 2.5 tons) via one of these sleds, it will simply sink into the ground, digging into the sand at the front when it’s pulled. This sand would eventually build up, forming what is called a “berm,” and it would have to be regularly cleared away.

    Obviously, this would be a terribly slow and tiresome process. In fact, it would be a very, very slow process. We know that the Great Pyramid took 20 years to build and required some 100,000 slaves, and the numbers just don’t add up when standard sled transportation enters the equation.

    So if all of the aforementioned conditions make it highly unlikely that the structure could have been completed in such a timeframe using that method, how was it built?

    A NEWLY DISCOVERED SOLUTION

    The key is water. Wet sand does not build up the same way that dry sand does. If you achieve just the right level of dampness, microdroplets of water will bind the grains of sand together, with capillary bridges forming across the grains.

    Ultimately, this prevents the sand from berming in front of the sled. Amazingly, this process also cuts the amount of force required to drag the sled in half, which would make it possible to complete the project in the time we know that it took.

    The University of Amsterdam press release explains how the researchers reached their conclusion:

    The physicists placed a laboratory version of the Egyptian sledge in a tray of sand. They determined both the required pulling force and the stiffness of the sand as a function of the quantity of water in the sand. To determine the stiffness, they used a rheometer, which shows how much force is needed to deform a certain volume of sand.

    Experiments revealed that the required pulling force decreased proportional to the stiffness of the sand…A sledge glides far more easily over firm desert sand simply because the sand does not pile up in front of the sledge as it does in the case of dry sand.

    What’s more, ancient cave art seems to support this hypothesis. The artwork in the tomb of Djehutihotep reveals a scene of slaves hauling a colossal statue of the Middle Kingdom ruler. At the front, a person is depicted pouring liquid into the sand.

    Now, we just need to figure out how the heck they made Stonehenge

    The Plane That Can Fly Anywhere In The World In 4 Hours

    IN BRIEF
    British aerospace firm Reaction Engines Limited (REL) is working on an aircraft that will be able to transport passengers anywhere in the world in just four hours, while also being able to reach outer space.

    FASTER TRANSPORTATION

    Who wouldn’t want to have breakfast on the French Riviera, take a walk along the Great Wall of China in the afternoon, and then cap off the evening by staring at stars above the Alaskan wilderness? That fantastic day might be possible soon, thanks to British aerospace firm Reaction Engines Limited (REL). The company is working on an aircraft that will be able to transport passengers anywhere in the world in just four hours.

    Yes. That’s four hours.

    Passengers will have options beyond just traveling fast here on Earth — they’ll also be given the opportunity to journey into space aboard the in-development plane, which the firm refers to as the Skylon.

    The Skylon is powered by a new kind of engine known as a SABRE. The company is already testing the engine system and is planning the first test flights for 2019. REL asserts that this engine will be capable of operating as a jet engine and a rocket engine. Amazingly, it will have the ability to power an aircraft at up to five times the speed of sound within the atmosphere, or it could send a craft directly into Earth’s orbit at 25 times the speed of sound.

    A number of tests (more than 700, thus far, including experiments that analyze the structural integrity and aerodynamic stability) have so far proven successful. If things continue to unfold as planned, David Willetts, the United Kingdom’s Minister for Universities and Science, believes that this design will completely alter the way that we travel and the way that we get to space. 

    According to the BBC, he claims:

    The engine being developed by Reaction Engines is a potential game-changer in terms of space technology. This successful testing validates the assessment made of the engine concept by the UK Space Agency back in 2010 and is yet another example of the UK’s world class space industry. It would be a fantastic achievement if we could one day use this home-grown technology for our own commercial space launches.

    CHEAPER SPACE TRAVEL

    Many of REL’s recent developments come thanks to the European Space Agency (ESA), which is working with the firm in order to secure cost-efficient space transportation.

    In July of 2013, the U.K. earmarked £60 million for the development of a full-scale prototype of the SABRE engine, citing the viability of its core technologies based on testing performed by the ESA. In June of 2014, a study was carried out in response to the ESA’s New European Launch Service requirements, which are aimed at lowering the cost of European launch services by around 2020. The study found that Skylon is, potentially, Europe’s most cost-effective way to achieve space access.

    Ultimately, each of these crafts are estimated to cost the equivalent of $1.1 billion United States dollars. Yes, that sounds like a lot of money. However, the Association of Aerospace Universities notes that it will be able to repay its development costs, meet its servicing and operating costs, and make profits for its operators whilst being an order of magnitude cheaper than current space transportation systems.

    REL also conducted a study on the passenger capabilities of the craft, and they found that a trip to orbit in an upright seat would be suitable for stays in Zero-G for up to 14 days. It would initially cost around 350,000 Euros, which very few of us could afford, but the company notes that the cost would drop significantly in time (using the craft for standard travel would, presumably, cost a lot less).

    A SUPER-COOL DEVICE

    The plane relies on a device called the precooler in order to function. This technology will cool the air entering Skylon’s engines from more than 1,000 degrees Celsius (1,832 degrees Fahrenheit) down to -150 degrees Celsius (-238 degrees Fahrenheit) in one one-hundredth of a second. This means that the engine system will be able to run at a much higher power than is currently possible.

    The company explains further:

    The SABRE Engine is a hybrid air breathing rocket engine. In the past, attempts to design single stage to orbit rockets have been unsuccessful largely due to the weight of oxidiser, such as liquid oxygen. To reduce the quantity of oxidiser that a vehicle is required to carry, one feasible solution is being able to use atmospheric oxygen in the combustion process. The SABRE engine does this, allowing a two mode operation using both an air-breathing and conventional rocket type operation. This is made possible through a synthesis of elements from rocket and gas turbine technology.

    Unfortunately, the plane won’t have any windows; however, that isn’t necessarily a bad thing. Some companies are now putting cameras on the outside of the planes and live streaming a 360-degree view on the inside walls for passengers.

    REL is also in talks with the United States about using this technology, and it may be utilized in hypersonic aircraft built by the U.S. military. Alan Bond, who invented Skylon and SABRE along with a team of engineers, shared some details with Space.com:

    The Air Force research laboratories in the States have carried out some modeling to verify that the SABRE does actually work, that it is a real engine, and so I am hoping they are going to confirm that very soon. This is obviously opening doors in the United States, and again, I can’t say a great deal about that, but we have very good dialogue going across the Atlantic. In the next couple of years, it’s going to be quite exciting.

    Experts willen verbod op killerrobots: "Doos van Pandora niet openen" - HLN.be

    Bron: ANP

    Tesla-baas ELon Musk 

    © epa.

    Een groep pioniers op het gebied van robotica en kunstmatige intelligentie, onder wie Tesla-topman Elon Musk, heeft de Verenigde Naties in een open brief opgeroepen de ontwikkeling en het gebruik van killerrobots te verbieden. Volgens The Guardian is de brief ondertekend door een groep van 116 specialisten uit 26 landen die vragen om een ban op autonome wapens.

    De brief werd gelanceerd rondom de opening van de Internationale Gezamenlijke Conferentie over Kunstmatige Intelligentie in Melbourne. De Verenigde Naties stemden onlangs in met het beginnen van formele discussies over zulke wapens, zoals drones, tanks en geautomatiseerde machinegeweren. Vooruitlopend hierop heeft de groep, onder wie ook Mustafa Suleyman van Google, de open brief gestuurd, waarin de VN wordt opgeroepen de wapenwedloop voor killerrobots die aan de gang is een halt toe te roepen.

    De specialisten waarschuwen dat killerrobots na buskruit en kernwapens de derde revolutie in oorlogsvoering dreigen te ontketenen. ''Eenmaal ontwikkeld zullen gewapende conflicten met dodelijke autonome wapens op een grotere schaal dan ooit kunnen worden uitgevochten, en veel sneller dan mensen kunnen begrijpen. Ze kunnen worden ingezet door terroristen en despoten tegen onschuldige mensen. Daarnaast kunnen gehackte wapens zich op ongewenste manieren gedragen'', aldus de briefschrijvers.

    Doos van Pandora

    De specialisten wijzen erop dat er niet veel tijd is om deze ontwikkeling tegen te gaan. ''Als deze doos van Pandora eenmaal is geopend, wordt het heel moeilijk hem weer dicht te krijgen.''

    Experts waarschuwden eerder al dat kunstmatige intelligentie inmiddels zo ver ontwikkeld is, dat de inzet van autonome wapens niet eens meer binnen decennia, maar binnen een paar jaar haalbaar is. Hoewel de inzet van kunstmatige intelligentie het slagveld voor militairen veiliger kan maken, vrezen experts dat de drempel om te vechten zal dalen, met een groter verlies van menselijk leven tot gevolg.

    Overheid weet meer over aliens. Ex-minister doet in dit gesprek alles uit de doeken

    De Canadese oud-minister van Defensie Paul Hellyer gaat in onderstaande video in gesprek met The Hannibal TV over disclosure.

    Hij is ervan overtuigd dat de Amerikaanse overheid veel meer weet over UFO’s en aliens dan ze doet vermoeden.

    Hellyer stelt daarnaast dat buitenaardsen geïnteresseerd zijn in ons kernarsenaal en legt uit waarom de media altijd zo lacherig doen over UFO’s.

    Paniekknop

    Verder vertelt de oud-minister wat er volgens hem achter de aanslagen op 11 september 2001 in New York zit.

    “Ze bezoeken onze planeet al duizenden jaren,” zei Hellyer enige tijd geleden tijdens een interview met RT.

    “In 1961 vlogen ten zuiden van Rusland zo’n 50 UFO’s in formatie over Europa. Het Supreme Allied Command maakte zich zorgen en stond op het punt op de paniekknop te drukken,” vervolgde hij.

    Vier buitenaardse rassen

    “De UFO’s keerden uiteindelijk om en verdwenen boven de Noordpool,” aldus Hellyer.

    “Men heeft drie jaar onderzoek gedaan naar dit incident en kwam tot de conclusie dat tenminste vier buitenaardse rassen de aarde al duizenden jaren bezoeken,” zei hij.

    Atoombom

    “De laatste decennia is er meer activiteit gemeld omdat we de atoombom hebben uitgevonden. Ze zijn bezorgd dat we er opnieuw gebruik van maken,” sprak de oud-minister.

    Paul Hellyer was in de jaren zestig minister van Defensie. Tijdens de Koude Oorlog had hij de leiding over het Canadese leger.

    THIS IS NASA'S PLAN TO SAVE MANKIND FROM YELLOWSTONE SUPERVOLCANO ERRUPTION

    Ex NASA Advisory Council member Brian Wilcox has made a revelation that is horrifying during the discussion of a space agency report. He said that if the risky proposals of NASA go ahead, to prevent an eruption, they might go wrong and it could lead to consequences that are disastrous and could see the Yellowstone volcano erupting.  

    NASA ATTEMPT MIGHT END IN DISASTER

    One of the ways that NASA plans is to drill into the bottom of the volcano and by way of a spurt of water that is pressurized, release heat out of the magma chamber. However, Wilcox has said that there is a good chance that the attempt would not be successful and it could end in disaster.

    NASA plans to save people from what has been termed a super volcano eruption like from the ones shown of some of the most astonishing eruptions of volcanoes. Photographs have been captured of lava floating down Kilauea with ash spitting out of the craters, sending plumes of smoke that rise many thousands of feet into the air. One of the most violent of eruptions was that of Mount Sakurajima.

    YELLOWSTONE IS DUE FOR AN ERUPTION

    It was said that Yellowstone explodes around every 600,000 years and the last time that it exploded was 600,000 years ago, so the volcano is about due to explode again. Wilcox said that if NASA does go ahead and drills into the magma chambers top to try to cool it down from there, it would be a very risky procedure. He went onto say that it might make the magma chambers cap even more brittle and this would mean it would be prone to fracturing. Wilcox went on to say that the release of harmful gases might be triggered in the top of the chamber, which would otherwise not have been released. While Wilcox knows that something must be done, he does not believe that NASA has the right answer.

    There have been many disasters in the world throughout the centuries and many have been man-made thanks to terrorism and wars. However, Mother Nature does play a part in them too and can do a lot of damage.

    VOLCANO ERUPTIONS BIGGER THREAT THAN ASTEROID OR COMET COLLISION

    Wilcox said that he had been a member of the NASA Advisory Council on Planetary Defence and this studied various ways in which NASA might be able to defend Earth from comets and asteroids. He said that he had reached the conclusion during a study that a super volcano threat is bigger that one from a comet or an asteroid. There are 20 super volcanoes on Earth and if they were to erupt they would trigger off effects that could change the planet.

    When the Iceland Eyjafjallajokul volcano erupted in 2010 air travel around Europe almost came to a halt. This has been the biggest disruption to air travel since World War II. The smoke pillar that came from the eruption reached a height of 11km and as far as Russia. Now there are fears that the same super eruption might happen again this year.  

    HUGE VOLCANIC ERUPTION COULD END HUMAN RACE DUE TO STARVATION

    The last major eruption to occur was around 26,500 years ago in New Zealand and they are very rare. However, if a similar event were to occur today it could bring about a nuclear winter and it may mean that human beings are wiped from the Earth in a matter of months, due to starvation.

    Wilcox said that an eruption of Yellowstone is imminent and so it is urgent that something is done. He went on to say that it is about due to explode and when and if it does people would be forced to sit up and take notice.

    THESE ARE THE 5 MOST IMPORTANT DISCOVERIES OF THE YEAR 2017 (SO FAR)

    Ever wonder what the future will hold and what we will be capable of doing as far as scientific research? Well, so far 2017 seems to be a year that is showing that we are definitely on track to some great scientific discoveries. So far there have been several notable ones, but here are some that stand out and could certainly shape the future.

    1. REGENERATING TISSUE AND ORGANS  

    This is such vital research when we stop to think about how important the human organs are to each of us. There has now been advancements made in actually growing human tissue and organs within a lab. Such research and advancements could one day repair nerve damage, damage tissue, and also help a person in need of a organ transplant.

    2. DISCOVERY OF A PLANET THAT COULD SUSTAIN LIFE  

     We have often wondered if there was life on other planets. Although it was determined that odds are most of the planets in our solar system don't have alien life forms, now that we are venturing beyond our solar system we may have actually discovered a planet where other life forms can be found. On a planet labelled as LHS 1140b, and appears as if it has an atmosphere that is habitable to life.

    3. EDITING A HUMAN EMBRYO

    No, this has nothing to do with changing the gender of a child while in the womb but actually doing away with diseases such as heart disease. It would seem such a procedure has now been done successfully remove the gene that has been linked to heart disease. This is truly a great breakthrough since it would seem many types of debilitating and even deadly diseases can be linked to our genetics.

    4. A REUSABLE ROCKET  

    Yes, in the past rockets were considered one way trips. These weren't reusable, that is until now. It would seem that SpaceX has relaunched the Falcon 9 which was made with the recycled parts from other rockets. This is an advancement which could save millions of dollars in money when it come to space program.

    5. CREATING LIFE OUTSIDE THE WOMB  

    This is a fantastic development for women who are able to create the egg needed but unable to actually carry their child to term. It would seem a group of scientist have successfully experimented using a lamb embryo to prove the a fetus could grow and mature within a sort of incubator like bag. The next step is to use this advancement on a human embryo. As things stand the same process has been successful in saving the lives of children born far to prematurely to have survived prior to such an advancement in fetal research.

    These are just five of the scientific advancements that occurred during the first half of 2017. There were several others as well. So, as things stand the future of science and technology does hold much, and we will no doubt benefit from all these great discoveries.

    MYSTERY SOLVED! THIS IS HOW THE PYRAMIDS OF EGYPT WERE BUILT

    The Pyramids at the Giza plateau in ancient Egypt are considered by many to be the most incredible ancient structures ever created on the face of the earth. The Great Pyramid of Giza, although built thousands of years ago, continues to astound specialists who cannot seem to understand how it was managed by ancient man to construct such a creation without modern day tools that make building structures much easier.

    Some of the seemingly infinite amazing aspects about the Great Pyramid of Giza include:  

    • "Radioactive sand" has been discovered by experts by the Queens chambers.
    • The erection holds enough stone to create an almost 2-feet-high wall around the whole planet.
    • The relationship between Pi (p) and Phi (F) is conveyed in the fundamental proportions of the Great Pyramid.
    • Hieroglyphics were never found inside of the Pyramids. 

    How did the workers manage to build such a flawless structure? What was their reasoning behind making such big pyramids? How did people thousands of years ago possibly manage to transport, raise and place massive blocks of stone that weigh over 50 tons?

    As reported by the most established adaptations, the Pyramids were built by colossal armies of builders. Greek Philosopher and historian Herodotus was the first in history to mention this theory. He claimed that the Pyramids at Giza were manufactured by leagues of 100,000 men, which varied month-to-month, for a period of 20 years. However, for this to be factual, it would mean that one block of stone had to be perfectly placed into position ever 3 ½ minutes, 24 hours a day.

    One of the greatest misconceptions that have inevitably led to numerous misinterpretations about Ancient Egyptian society, their culture, and origins, is the idea that of mummy findings inside the Pyramid. Not a single mummy has been found by experts inside the Pyramid. It is a proven fact that The Great Pyramid of Giza does not hold a Pharaoh's mummy, and nothing uncovered inside the Pyramid suggests that there ever was one.

    The weight of the pyramid is predicted at 5,955,000 tons. Multiplied by 10^8 gives a plausible prediction of the earth’s mass.

    As of today, not one single expert has been able to answer three of the most fundamental questions surround the Pyramids at Giza which are: Who constructed them, why were they constructed, and maybe how they were constructed?

    Nonetheless, a documentary on YouTube may shed light on how these amazing creations were assembled thousands of years ago. The documentary talks about the processes used to construct the Pyramids. How could materials such as wooden rollers and mud bricks take the pressure put on them by tons of stone? Thousands of men allegedly dragged the building blocks across the desert in the excruciating heat – how did the ancient project managers keep spirits up amongst the dust-covered and exhausted workers?

    'It's coming towards us' Black ringed UFO leaves beachgoers transfixed

    CROWDS were left in awe when a black, ringed UFO flew in the skies above a packed beach in Dalian, China.

    Strange footage emerged online of a object appearing in the sky over Jinshitan beach in the city.

    The video shows the object floating among the clouds before disappearing.

    Swimmers and beachgoers can be seen observing the ring as it flies above them.

    In the video, onlooker Jing Qi said: "There is an unidentified flying object appearing in the sky. Its oval shape is expanding and it's coming towards us closer and closer."

    Before disappearing, the UFO-like ring changed its shape into a parallelogram.

    Following the publication of the video, social media users began to speculate on the possible origin of the object on China's version of Twitter, Weibo.

    According to ET Today, some eyewitnesses suggested the ring could have been formed by a group of insects moving together.

    However, web users were quick to point out a reasonable explanation for the sudden appearance.

    Local residents said the ring had been caused by special visual effects from a performance that had just taken place.

    A spokesperson from a local playground confirmed the ring was a flame effect from a show organised for the public.

    They explained that the smoke from the special effect manifested as a floating ring.

    Are You Ready? As the Solar Eclipse nears, a 140,000 miles long sunspot group is about to burst!

    Only a few weeks ago, it seemed that the sun would be quiet and featureless when the Moon eclipsed it on Aug. 21st.

    This weekend, however, the sun is welcoming the eclipse with a burst of renewed activity as a remarkably-long sunspot group AR2671 is sprawling across the solar disk, stretches 140,000 miles from end to end, almost twice as wide as the planet Jupiter.

    Solar Minimum was in full swing and suddenly there is renewed activity, is it just coincidence?

    There are no coincidences!

    The “Great American Eclipse”: The totality will reach Oregon at 10:16 AM Pacific, which is the 33rd state in the USA and will end in South Carolina at 2:49 PM Eastern which is on the 33rd parallel That means it will take 1 hour and 33 minutes to cross the country.

    This eclipse happens on day 233 of the year. If the Revelation 12 sign is valid, then the day of the Total Solar Eclipse, to the date of September 23 is exactly 33 days. (Read the full story about the August 21 eclipse and its 33+ facts at Countdownreport.)

    On September 23rd a unique astronomical alignment of the Sun, Moon, constellation Virgo, constellation Leo, and planets Jupiter, Mars, Mercury, and Venus is going to fulfill this passage from the book of Revelation:

    “And a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars. She was pregnant and was crying out in birth pains and the agony of giving birth.”

    The last time we had a full eclipse in 1918 – it was accompanied by pandemic and war. Flu crisis of 1918, millions died and the US was involved in World War 1.

    Now as we face the next eclipse, besides that it is said that such a celestial event can lead to strange behavior whereby people suddenly abandon their peaceful ways and devoted themselves with uncharacteristic fervor to making war on their neighbors and fighting among themselves, we have an Opioid crisis and an upcoming World War 3?

    Coming back to AR2671, this unexpected sunspot has a 'beta-gamma' magnetic field that harbors energy for M-class solar flares. It is quite possible that the sunspot will explode during the eclipse, so if you are in the total eclipse path set your clock to greet this awesome spectacle on Monday.

    At all it seems that we are about to witness an extremely unusual convergence of events the coming month that many believe could represent a major turning point, especially for America.

    There are no coincidences, it is all connected!

    Stanton Friedman on Close Encounters of the Third Kind




    Steven Spielberg's 1977 film, Close Encounters of the Third Kind is headed back to theaters. In its original release, the audiences went in not knowing what to expect. The previews and ads suggested something a bit sinister and mysterious.  Spielberg was famous for terrifying audiences with the shark and Jaws, so many people may have been expecting CE3K to be a space monster movie. We were told to "Watch the Skies," and that, "We are Not alone." It sounded like a warning.

    “When Steven Spielberg made Jaws, the world went shark crazy. Reports of shark attacks increased by the thousands and people began to approach the beach with caution and even with fear. Now with Close Encounters of the Third Kind, Spielberg is making a film about an even more fascinating subject and one thing seems certain. Just as Jaws gave us a new respect for the mysteries that lie beneath the surface of the sea, after seeing Close Encounters of the Third Kind, we will probably never look at the sky in quite the same way again.
    Like Jaws, Steven Spielberg’s newest film begins in a small American town but this time it leads to one inescapable conclusion: we are not alone. WATCH THE SKIES”

    6 minute teaser

    CE3K& Ufology

    Close Encounters became a huge financial success, a beloved classic of cinema and a touchstone for the UFO topic. However on it's original release, the reviews were mixed. Let's take a look back at what critics were saying about it at the time. In Variety, A.D. Murphy said:
    “Close Encounters of the Third Kind” is a daring film concept which in its special and technical effects has been superbly realized. Steven Spielberg’s film climaxes in final 35 minutes with an almost ethereal confrontation with life forms from another world; the first 100 minutes, however, are somewhat redundant in exposition and irritating in tone.
    Ufologist Dr. J. Allen Hynek was a consultant on the film, and deeply involved in the project, and a big supporter. He participated in its promotion, had a cameo in it, published a non-fiction book The Hynek UFO Report released in connection with the film, wrote the epilogue to the CE3K novelization, and received funding and publicity for CUFOs, the Center for UFO Studies.

    Friedman With Portrait Of Sculpture
    made from a recollection of a close encounter
    Ufologist, Stanton T. Friedman, "the flying saucer scientist" was less enthusiastic about the film. Prior to resurrecting the Roswell case, Friedman was a flying saucer lecturer who chiefly promoted the Betty and Barney Hill abduction story. He'd consulted on the 1975 TV movie based on the Hill case, The UFO Incident, but he gave low marks to Spielberg's film. Close Encounters of the Third Kind was criticized by Stanton Friedman as "inaccurate." He said that, " 'Close Encounters' is visually spectacular- a feast for the eyes- but UFOlogically a disaster," and in his opinion, "about 20 percent legitimate and 80 percent overdone."



    The Sarasota Journal,  Jan. 11, 1978 

    It's not known if Friedman's disapproval prompted Spielberg to tamper with the film, but CE3K has been re-edited several times over the decades, with footage added and cut. With the new re-release, Spielberg has one last chance to fix his mistakes, and just maybe, to finally win the praise of the flying saucer scientist.

    A Fast UFO Flying was Filmed by a US Air Force Veteran, He Sent the Footage to MUFON for Investigation

    usaf-veteran-UFO-NASA 

    The UFO was filmed with a DJI Phantom 3 Professional 4K aerial camera mounted on a drone above Ayden District Park travelling too fast to be spotted with a naked eye. The 59- year-old veteran was astonished after reviewing the recorded footage that showed a UFO flying in a blur under the drone.

    The retired USAF veteran has told MUFON that he had never previously experienced anything similar in his 20 year military career and that this footage took him back.

    The object travelled around 1.2 miles just in one-third of a second, meaning, it travelled at around 13,000 mph per hour or 17 times the speed of sound an altitude of just 50 feet.

    The object on the footage can be seen clearly only when slowed down. It is when it stays on the screen long enough to be seen. The description on YouTube video says that it traveled 6200 feet (about 1.2 miles) in 1/3rd of a second.

    The UFO was reported with MUFON and then a copy of the video was sent to NASA. Both agencies are investigating and anysing it.

    The object looked like a solid metallic object which reflected or emitted its own light.It appears like a blur and it covers a distance during one-third of a second without making a sound.

    MUFON’s North Carolina investigator Sanford Davis wrote in the official report that the object was not observed nor seen personally. It was spotted after reviewing drone footage and the whole sighting occured within a third of a second – a stroke arising in the background, streaking across the screen before disappearing in the foreground.

    It appears as a white dot, turning into a ‘light disk’ right before it disappears off screen.”

    Some users on YouTube commented that it has prosaic origins while the others see it as valid proof of UFO’s existence .

    Without any doubts, the results of the NASA analysis will share the former’s opinion.

    Top 5 UFO sightings in history: Brit expert's secret X-files that ‘PROVE aliens real'

    A BRITISH UFO investigator has revealed his top five secret X-files for the first time.

    By David Trayner 

    World-renowned expert and author Philip Mantle, of Pontefract, Yorks., has probed hundreds of close encounters over the years but says these previously unreleased cases are the ones that made him believe extraterrestrial life is real.

    They include a mum and six children who saw three aliens in Yorkshire, and an RAF officer who encountered mysterious objects on his radar system.

    The former director of investigations of the British UFO Research Association and UK representative of MUFON – the world's biggest UFO organisation – has chosen his top five, cases which have convinced him the truth really is out there.

    Wing Commander Alan Turner

    CASCADE

    WITNESS: Wing Commander Alan Turner

    1. Mysterious high-speed objects spotted on three different RAF radar

    His first unexplained case involved Wing Commander Alan Turner OBE, who was duty military supervisor at RAF Sopley in 1971.

    Mr Turner described seeing objects on radar climbing at supersonic speeds from 3,000ft to 60,000ft, way beyond the capabilities of any aircraft at the time.

    The objects appeared 20 nautical miles east of the Salisbury Plain Danger Area, in Wiltshire, in southern England.

    A series of six or seven blips moved on a south-easterly track, each being separated by about six miles.

    At about 40 miles from where they appeared on radar, they disappeared – and another blip would appear almost immediately back at the starting point.

    Mr Turner said they were at about 3,000ft, but climbed so rapidly they were at 60,000ft when they disappeared.

    He said: “To climb to such a height in only forty miles was beyond the ability of any fighter aircraft at the time.”

    The phenomenon was witnessed by four civil and six military controllers on duty at the time.

    Mr Turner called Heathrow Radar to discover that they, also, were seeing a similar picture. The same situation was observed at RAF Neatishead.

    The three units used different radars at different frequencies.

    Mr Turner said: “I am at a loss to explain what I, and many other people, saw. In those days aircraft could not climb at such a rate.”

    2. Dad and son’s UFO photo confirmed as genuine

    Roy and Ralph Keane captured extremely rare photographs of a UFO in Melbourne, Australia, which have been studied by experts and determined genuine.

    The dad and son took the picture in their back garden on September 19, 1995.

    Mr Keane said the object was photographed, it hovered then dipped and moved to the left very suddenly.

    GENUINE: An expert has confirmed the photos are real

    The pair went round the house to try to see the object but it had disappeared.

    The pictures were analysed by photographic expert Winston Keech.

    His report said: "Using extreme gamma adjustments and edge detection algorithms, no supporting wires or other linear edge features were found – so the object is not suspended by wire.

    “This does appear to be a solid reflective object that is unsupported in mid air.”

    4. Woman suffers strange injuries after “alien” encounter

    The strangest case Mr Mantle ever encountered happened on January 24, 1992, in Mezobbereny, in Hungary.

    A 50-year-old woman was at home with her husband when a “dull black egg-shaped object about 120cm in height” shot across her kitchen, making a “rippling” movement.

    A loud snorting sound was heard.

    The upper part of the object became a blue-grey colour, with a vibrating orange vertical stripe.

    Next to this stripe stood a “wonderful-looking woman”, who looked directly at the witness.

    BIZARRE: Strange marks on the body of woman after an alien encounter

    The Hungarian woman said she felt well – but was unable to talk.

    She followed the strange being into an adjoining room, but when she entered the room the woman had gone.

    A few days later, she felt very tired and went to bed at 6.30pm.

    Out of nowhere, she heard a woman's voice, which asked her to lift up her arm.

    She raised her arm and felt a severe pain in her elbow joint.

    Next the witness got up and went outside to the garden, still in her night gown and with nothing on her feet.

    In the garden stood a cabin-like object.

    She count see anyone in the object, but she felt a “presence” – as if someone was there unseen.

    The woman lost consciousness. When she came round, she was back in bed, fully clothed but with a sharp pain in her abdomen.

    A few days later, a number of large red marks appeared on the upper part of her abdomen and the lower part of her breasts.

    Neither her nor her doctor could find a cause for the strange marks, which didn’t hurt or irritate her.

    5. Whole family sees UFO and alien beings in Yorkshire

    Mr Mantle’s number one unexplained case involved UFO craft landing and aliens appearing, witnessed by an entire family.

    A woman named Mrs Westerman was at home in Normanton, West Yorkshire, in 1979 when her eight-year-old daughter came in, saying an “aeroplane” had landed in a nearby field.

    Mrs Westerman and her six children went out to find a large dull-grey object, “shaped like a Mexican sombrero”.

    Around the object stood three very tall “men”, all of whom appeared to be dressed in metallic silver suits, which creased as they moved.

    Philip Mantle

    CASCADE

    EXPERT: British UFO expert Philip Mantle

    The “men” had dark objects like torches, but without a light, in their hands and were pointing to an instrument on the ground.

    The children and Mrs Westerman made their way over the field towards the object and stopped at a fence.

    The men walked to the rear of the object and it rose vertically, stopped in mid-air, and then shot off at an angle at high speed.

    Mrs Westermen and all six children gave the same account to Mr Mantle when he interviewed them.

    Mr Mantle will speak at a major UFO conference organised by Outer Limits Magazine in Hull next month.

    From tall men in silver suits standing by a UFO-shaped object in a field to the woman who woke up with bizarre markings on her stomach, these are UFO expert Phillip Mantle's top five secret X-files

    BY 

    Philip Mantle, a top British UFO investigator, has revealed his top five secret X-Files

    Whether you're a believer or not, this is bound to make you shudder.

    A top British UFO investigator says he has proof aliens are real - and he has now revealed details of some pretty chilling close encounters .

    Philip Mantle, a world renowned expert, has probed hundreds of cases over the years, but these are his top five secret X-files...

    Even if you're a sceptic, you'll have to admit that some of these do seem a little bizarre - and downright terrifying.

    1. Random flying objects caught whizzing through the air on THREE different radars in 1971

    Wing Commander Alan Turner was left stunned by the mysterious objects whirring on the radars 

    Wing Commander Alan Turner was duty military supervisor at RAF Sopley in 1971 when he noticed something amiss in the sky.

    He described seeing objects climbing at supersonic speeds from 3,000ft to 60,000ft beyond the capabilities of any aircraft at the time.

    It was his duty supervisor who spotted the phenomenon and nobody had ever seen anything like it before.

    Mr Turner said: "Emanating from a point some 20 nautical miles east of the eastern extremity of the Salisbury Plain Danger Area were a series of six or seven blips moving on a south-easterly track each being separated from the other by about six miles.

    "At about 40 miles from the point they appeared on radar they disappeared to be followed almost immediately by a replacement at the point of origin.

    "I put the FPS 6 Height Finder onto some returns to discover that they were about 3,000 feet when they came into radar cover and climbing extremely rapidly so that, by the time they disappeared from radar, they were in excess of 60,000 feet.

    "To climb to such a height in only forty miles was beyond the ability of any fighter aircraft at the time."

    But he and his colleague were not the only ones to notice the spooky UFOs whirring through the air.

    He called Heathrow Radar to discover that they, too, were seeing a similar picture - as were the Fighter Control Operations Rooms at RAF Neatishead.

    They were all using different frequencies and the weather forecast in the area was calm and sunny. So what could it have been?

    "I am at a loss to explain what I, and many other people, saw. In those days aircraft could not climb at such a rate.

    "To be seen on displays by three different ground radars, plus the airborne radar in the Canberra, is also a mystery."

    2. Father and son capture rare photographs of a UFO in their back garden in Melbourne, Australia, in 1995

    Experts said the photos taken by Mr Keane and his son were not doctored 
    The bizarre encounter is in Mr Mantle's top five secret X-Files 

    The pictures, taken by Roy and Ralph Keen in Kilsyth on September 19, 1995, have been studied are are, in fact, genuine.

    Mr Keane said at the time: “Each time the ‘object’ was photographed, it appeared to be moving on a trajectory to our right as we looked up at it.

    "Almost immediately after each picture was taken, the flying object seemed to momentarily ‘hover’, then ‘dip’ and move to the left very suddenly. 
    “Each time this occurred, both my son and I rushed around the side of our house in an attempt to see where the object had moved to.

    "Each time, on arrival at the front of our house, there was no sign of the object anywhere to be seen in the sky.”

    The pictures were analysed by photographic expert Winston Keech whose report said: “Using extreme gamma adjustments and edge detection algorithms - no supporting wires or other linear edge features were found.

    "So the object is not suspended by wire - as the cloud contrast is good, this would have been found.

    "This does appear to be a solid reflective object that is unsupported in mid air. Due to the high shutter speeds used, it may well be moving at reasonable speed without any discernible image blurring.”

    3. The longest reported sightings of a UFO in Darwen, Lancashire, in November 1985

    Mrs Howard drew this detailed drawing of her encounter 

    Mrs Josephine Howard, from Darwen in Lancashire, was just "happened to look up" as she was walking to her car one day and spotted two, round red lights in the sky.

    Mr Mantle said: "They were about the size of car headlights. Her curiosity aroused and Mrs Howard s topped to take a better look. There were no beams coming from the lights as they came overheard there was no noise."

    It was one of the many sightings in the mid-1980s that spanned the borders of both Yorkshire and Lancashire.

    Mr Mantle added: “The witness estimated that she had the object in sight for about eight minutes in total which is a long time for UFO sightings.

    "It was a ‘diamond’ shape with two lights at the front and it was totally noiseless at all times. She estimated that to her it was 200-300 feet above her.

    Mrs Howard described the scene at the time saying: “I could not see the lights as it moved overhead but I could see the underneath of the object.

    "This object was very large and seemed to be very heavylooking. I kept wondering how something so big and heavy looking could move so slowly and not make a noise.

    "I kept watching and took in as much detail as I could. The object was huge and its underneath had what looked like round-headed studs.

    "The object moved overhead and I kept watching it until it was almost out of sight at which point it seemed to tilt upwards and shoot off at a great speed and was gone.”

    4. The woman who woke up with strange markings on her stomach after encountering "bizarre" woman in Hungary in 1992

    The bizarre marking on the woman's stomach appeared days after she saw a mysterious woman in her house 

    The strangest case he ever encountered which doctors were unable to explain happened in remains in Hungary on January 24, 1992.

    The case involved a 50 year old woman from Mezobbereny in Hungary.

    She was at home with her husband when a dull, black egg-shaped object around 120 cm in height shot across the kitchen, making a ‘rippling’ movement during which a strong ‘snorting’ sound was heard.

    The upper part of the object became a blue-grey colour with a vibrating orange vertical stripe. Next to this stripe stood a ‘wonderful looking woman’ who looked directly at the witness.

    The witness felt well, but she was unable to talk. She followed this being into another room but when she entered, the woman had gone.

    She told her husband what had happened but he did not believe her.

    The weekend passed without any further events but on Monday she felt very tired and went to bed at 6.30 pm. Her husband was in the same room with her watching TV.

    Out of nowhere she heard a woman’s voice which asked her to lift up her arm. She raised her arm and felt a severe pain in her elbow joint.

    Next the woman got up and went outside to the garden still in her nightdress and with nothing on her feet.

    In the garden stood a cabin-like object.

    Explaining what happened, Mr Mantle said: “The witness entered the object but did not see anyone else in there but she did feel a presence as if someone was there but could not be seen.

    "When she came around she found herself back in bed, fully clothed but with a sharp pain in her abdomen. On Thursday and Friday a number of large red marks appeared on the upper part of her abdomen and the lower section of her breasts.

    "These marks were not painful and they did not itch either. The marks were not sensitive to either hot or cold water.

    “These ‘close encounters’ were the first in a series events that went on over the next few week."

    Neither the lady involved nor her doctor could find a conventional cause for the strange marks on her body.

    5. Family watch spacecraft land in a field near a field as men in silver suits survey the area in Normanton, West Yorkshire, in 1979

    An artists impression of the Normanton landings 

    Mr Mantle says this case has stayed with him ever since he first investigated it with colleague Mark Birdsall of the Yorkshire UFO Society.

    A woman, Mrs Westerman, said she was at home doing the washing one sunny afternoon as he children were outside playing a ballgame in the sun.

    It was around mid-afternoon when her eight-year-old daughter suddenly ran into the house shouting and crying, telling her mother to "come quick, and airplane just landed in the field".

    The Waterman’s was near to the end of a cul-de-sac, and beyond that, fields which contained electricity pylons.

    “Mrs Westerman ran outside and a few hundred yards away, in the fields adjacent to her house, she saw an object on the ground. It was a dull grey colour and had the appearance of a ‘Mexican hat’.

    “Around the object stood three very tall ‘men’ all of who, appeared to be dressed in silver suits. These men seemed to be pointing to a dark instrument on the ground. The children and Mrs Westerman made their way over the field towards this object and stopped at a fence.

    "The men walked to the rear of the object and it rose vertically, stopped in mid-air, and then shot off at an angle at a high rate of speed.

    “Needless to say they were speechless. All six of Mrs Westerman’s children related similar accounts to us.

    "There were very minor discrepancies but only as you would have expected to find from different people. All of the children were of the opinion that the dark object the men had in their hands, of which they moved about, looked like a torch but it had no light and gave off no sound."

    The ‘uniforms’ the men wore, were metallic silver and would crease when the men moved. All of the witnesses stated quite clearly that both upon landing and departure, this object never made a sound.

    Mr Mantle, the former director of investigations of the British UFO Research Association and UK representative of MUFON - the world's biggest UFO organisation, is due to speak about his research for the final time in September.

    Why Brazil’s Night of UFOs Is the Most Legitimate Encounter

    Humans tend to interpret every object since they are pattern-seeking creatures. Sometimes, we are correct in our assessments, but many times we just misunderstand, misperceive or misremember. Due to the demanding and challenging nature of the UFOs, it is not uncommon to see and hear the idea of ignoring the thoughts of alien and extraterrestrial enthusiasts. With alien encounters, people usually find that an explanation depends on not necessarily in the skies, but the mentality of every individual.

    ufo-brazil1986

    While the opinions of critics drown out the voices of those who believe the existence of legitimate aliens, some events beguile explanation. The best illustration would be the Brazil’s Night of UFOs. Enthusiasts and locals alike have been amazed to such incident, which is probably the reason why it has become the most legitimate UFO-related encounter in decades. Interestingly, the incident has been easily forgotten despite the comprehensive national coverage of the encounter in the days that followed. Brazil’s Night of UFOs took place on May 19, 1986, and it covered approximately 21 unidentified objects that were seen by the Air Force radars of the country. According to a Redditor, the strange objects were observed by different witnesses in various parts of the country, comprising Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro. What was terrific about the Night of UFOs in Brazil was not the number of strange objects that were spotted that night, but the transparency and the reaction of the Brazilian government and military during the incident was notable.

    The country’s Air Force night was deployed during the Brazil’s Night of UFOs to investigate and engage with mysterious objects. The aircraft released were capable of soaring at high speeds. However, reports say that strange air vessels outran the military fighters, flying as fast as 2500 mph. The entire rivalry between them has lasted for three hours. According to later reports, the U.S. government got involved, but its full disclosure was never revealed. The incidents released were the usual sceptical explanations regarding what might have taken place during the Night such as the ball lightning, meteor showers, a reflection of the full moon, or an issue concerning the Air Force’s radar system. Without a doubt, interest in the incident died for decades.

    A Ring UFO Flies Over Beachgoers and Swimmers In China

    ufo-ring

    A black UFO that flew in the skies over Dalian, China has amazed crowds enjoying the Jinshitan beach. A video recording was uploaded online showing a strange object over the beach in the city. It depicts an unknown floating object among clouds.

    The unusual thing moves in the sky over the swimmers and beachgoers as they observe it flies over them.

    One of the witnesses Jing Qi says that an oval shape UFO appears in the sky and expands at it comes closer to the crowd.

    The ring UFO appears to change shape into a parallelogram before disappearing.

    Social media users who saw the video online speculate on the possible origin of the bizarre object on Weibo.

    Some say the ring could have been a group of insects flying together and forming such shape. Others say that it could have been special visual effects from a show organised for the public.

    However, some other viewers of the video suggest that extraterrestrials have something to do with the UFO.

    'Jellyfish' Galaxies Reveal Feeding Habits of Monster Black Holes

    Glowing "jellyfish" galaxies have revealed a new way to power some of the most powerful objects in the universe. The same process that feeds the most voracious black holes at the galactic centers may also create dangling "tentacles" of newborn stars, a new study found.

    While most galaxies, including the Milky Way, hide massive black holes at their centers, only a few produce enough electromagnetic radiation as they eat to create active galactic nuclei (AGN). AGN shine brilliantly in the universe, and why they form around some black holes and not others has been an ongoing mystery. But jellyfish galaxies may help crack the case. 

    "When a galaxy enters a galaxy cluster, falling into it at high velocity, the hot, dense gas that fills the cluster — the so-called intracluster gas — acts like a strong wind on the galaxy gas," Bianca Poggianti, lead author on the new study, told Space.com by email. "It strips it away and creates the tails," which give the galaxies their "jellyfish" nickname. [When Galaxies Collide: Photos of Great Galactic Crashes]

    This same wind that forms the jellyfish galaxies may also feed growing AGNs, she said. 

    Poggianti, a researcher at the INAF-Astronomical Observatory of Padova in Italy, is part of an international team of scientists using the Multi-Unit Spectroscopic Explorer (MUSE) instrument on the European Space Observatory's Very Large Telescope (VLT) in Chile to examine jellyfish galaxies. The researchers found that an unexpectedly high fraction of the tentacled galaxies contain AGN.

    "Ours is the first study that systematically searches for [jellyfish galaxies] and tries to have a complete census in different regions of the local universe," Poggianti said.

    Supermassive black holes constantly feed. As they draw in surrounding gas and dust, they produce intense radiation that can sometimes be seen from Earth, leaving scientists to ponder these objects' food source. While black holes are common, the more powerful and visible AGN are rare.

    Poggianti and her team are part of an ongoing program to observe 114 jellyfish galaxies, an order of magnitude more than previously observed in detail, she said. Of the seven galaxies with the longest tails, the researchers found that six housed a supermassive black hole, suggesting a link between the two types of object. Previous studies suggested that the powerful cluster winds stretched the tentacles out for tens of light-years in a process known as ram-pressure stripping. These same winds could feed the supermassive black holes, constantly nourishing them by carrying material to the center of the galaxy.

    But, the scientists wondered, did the winds feed the black holes, or did the black holes produce the winds?

    "In a sense, this is similar to the problem of the chicken and the egg — which one comes first," Poggianti said. "While both effects are probably at work, we have good reason to think that the first effect prevails."

    By studying the positioning and velocity of the galaxies, the researchers found that all of these objects lie close to the center of the cluster and have high speeds compared to that of the cluster itself.

    "They are in the ideal conditions for ram-pressure stripping to be the strongest," Poggianti said.

    On the other hand, if effects from the galactic center formed the massive tentacles, she said, the galaxies would be scattered more randomly.

    The new work was detailed Aug. 16 in the journal Nature.

    As cluster winds sweep away the dust and gas in a galaxy, the tentacles they create fill with brilliant young stars. These stars shine brightly in optical wavelengths of light, making the objects stand out to researchers who picked through images of over 70 galaxy clusters hunting for tails, Poggianti said. The scientists also found jellyfish outside of clusters, some as part of galaxy groups and others off on their own. Galaxies found in groups tend to lack the spectacular tails of their cluster compatriots, and all of those found with AGN lie in clusters, Poggianti said.

    Simulations combining ram-pressure stripping and AGN-hosting galaxies would be both complicated and computationally expensive, requiring significant time and computer power, Poggianti said. That's why no such simulations exist — yet, she said.

    "I imagine that, following our discovery, there will be research groups in the world that will attempt to simulate the two processes together," she said. The paper said that such simulations would be valuable for interpreting the new connection.

    The seven jellyfish are only part of a larger swarm. Within the GAs Stripping Phenomena in galaxies with MUSE (GASP) program, Poggianti and her colleagues are continuing to investigate over a hundred more of the intriguing galaxies. [Amazing Space Views of ESO's Very Large Telescope (Photos)]

    "When all of the observations will be in our hands — I expect [in] about a year from now — we will be able to have a complete picture," Poggianti said. Once the researchers have obtained all of the data, the team will be able to see how features change and evolve. Observing the jellyfish — some at the beginning of gas removal, others with long tails and still others devoid of gas with no fuel to birth young stars — will allow the researchers to investigate the various stages of the jellyfish lifecycle, Poggianti said.

    "This is like seeing galaxy evolution happening in front of your eyes from a front row," she said.

    The team is planning, and in some case already working, to observe the galaxies at different wavelengths with the Karl G. Jansky Very Large Array in New Mexico and the Atacama Pathfinder Experiment and Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array in Chile, Poggianti said. Such observations will help researchers to understand how gas in the jellyfish galaxies evolve over time, she said.

    "This is really great, because these are the most powerful astronomical observational facilities in the world, each in its own field and wavelength," Poggianti said. "Their combination will allow us to study all the different gas phases, [and] how they relate to each other and to the formation of new stars."

    10 spacecraft hit by massive solar flare, says ESA

    10 spacecraft hit by massive solar flare, says ESA

    The space weather event, known as a coronal mass ejection (CME), was observed by three satellites operating outside the path of the flare, namely ESA’s Proba-2, the ESA-NASA joint project SOHO and NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory, in October 2014.

    The ESA’s Olivier Witasse had been leading the space agency’s Mars Express, a project examining the effect of the comet Siding Spring on the atmosphere of the Red Planet. During the research, the team detected signs of the CME on Mars and, in the subsequent investigation, accessed data collected by the 10 spacecraft in its path.

    CME speeds with distance from the sun is not well understood, in particular in the outer Solar System,”said Witasse. Thanks to the precise timings of numerous in situ measurements, we can better understand the process.

    The data gives an indication of the speed, distance and direction of travel of the CME, with the effects of the flare reportedly felt by NASA’s Voyager-2, then at the edge of the solar system approaching Pluto.

    After emission, the solar flare travelled at speeds of up to 1,000km per second (6,000 miles per second) before slowing to 500km/sec after reaching the Cassini space probe in November 2014.  

    Luckily, Earth was not in the CME’s path – a phenomenon that scientists say has potential to be hugely damaging to our way of life.

    Experts have warned that a powerful geomagnetic storm would likely knock out power grids, communications and satellite technology, causing trillions of dollars worth of damage to the global economy. They even cite as evidence the 1859 ‘Carrington Event’ in which a solar flare knocked out telegraph systems all over Europe and North America.

    7 conspiracy theories that just won’t go away

    1. 9/11 was an inside job

    The terrorist attacks on 11 September 2001 were actually orchestrated by the US government.

    The theory is that the jet fuel from the planes was not enough to melt the steel beams of the World Trade Center towers. The buildings were brought down by a controlled demolition.

    One reason for the theory’s longevity is that it has been proven that the war in Iraq was justified by using false information about the existence of so called weapons of mass destruction.

    2. A secret group controls the world

    This elite group is mostly referred to as the Illuminati and it has been controlling the world for centuries. Its end game is to create a New World Order which will dissolve national boundaries and people’s identities while allowing for total authoritarian control.

    Other versions of this theory see other groups in a similar position of world domination – the Freemasons, the Jewish people, the Bilderberg Group or the “globalists” that are often invoked in the right wing media. President Trump himself mentions “globalists” and invokes fighting against insidious “elites” as a battle cry for his base.

    3. The moon landing didn’t happen

    The moon landing did not happen and evidence was orchestrated by NASA and the US government to make them seem superior to the Soviet Union and to boost national pride.

    NASA faked the landings to avoid humiliation and to ensure that it continued to get funding.

    Moon-landing conspiracists focus heavily on NASA photos. They point to oddities in photos and films taken on the Moon.

    Another theory is that Stanley Kubrick, director and producer of 2001: A Space Odyssey was the mastermind behind the fake footage of the moon landing.

    4. Roswell, Area 51 and aliens

    The remains of an alien spacecraft that crashed near Roswell, New Mexico in 1947 are stored at Area 51, a top-secret military base about 250 km from Las Vegas where government scientists conduct research on alien technology and time travel.

    This theory is partly fueled by UFO sightings in the area and the testimony of a retired army colonel who says he was given access to extraterrestrial materials from Roswell.

    The US government’s secrecy about Area 51 and the fact that information about it is classified “for purposes of national security” is further proof that the military is hiding aliens or alien spacecraft.

    5. Reptilians are running the world

    Famously espoused by David Icke, this is another version of secret groups controlling the world. According to a national survey 12 million Americans believe this theory.

    The belief is that the top echelons of governments are controlled by shape-shifting reptilian aliens, who have been wielding power over humans for thousands of years to turn them into mindless slaves.

    6. Chemtrails

    The lines of clouds in a clear blue sky are actually “chemtrails” – chemicals sprayed by the government to control the population.

    The purpose of the claimed chemical release may be solar radiation management, psychological manipulation, human population control, weather modification, or biological or chemical warfare. The trails are causing respiratory illnesses and other health problems.

    7. The Holocaust never happened

    In spite of a well-documented historical fact that six million Jews were exterminated by German Nazis during the second world war there are people who believe the Holocaust did not happen.

    Only about 54 percent of the world’s population has heard of the Holocaust, according to a large 100-country survey by the Anti-Defamation League. Only a third of those who’ve heard of it believe the Holocaust is portrayed correctly

    Alien sightings


    I’m writing this column from my hotel room in Roswell, N.M. Roswell is, of course, famous for the alleged alien crash landing that happened in 1947.

    Roswell also happens to be the last leg of my family’s summer vacation. We opted for a two-week vacation instead of our customary one week because we had a lot of places we’ve always wanted to visit.

    My husband had absolutely no interest in visiting Roswell and hearing about aliens, but my son and I couldn’t wait to get here. While it’s been a blast hearing about the supposed cover-up at Roswell (and I’ll keep my opinion about that to myself), most of the alien-like sightings we’ve had during this trip haven’t been at Roswell.

    They’ve been at the slew of national parks we’ve visited on our trip – places like Yellowstone, Grand Canyon, White Sands National Monument, the Grand Tetons and Lake Mead.

    We had planned for months to visit these places, but we only learned right before we left that we qualified for free entry into all national parks we visited because my child had just completed fourth grade. Under a program established by then President Barack Obama, all fourth-graders and their families receive free entry into any of the national parks they visit. Hopefully, this program continues, so more families can experience the natural beauty these parks have to offer.

    While we would have visited these places regardless of what we were charged to see them, having free access saved us a bundle.

    I think introducing kids who are in middle school to national parks is a great idea because they are at such an influential age. A trip to Yellowstone may put them on a career path they may have never considered.

    Plus, it gives them a sense of ownership. My daughter felt like a special guest of the parks we entered. She had her own card that gave us free access, and the employees would ask where our fourth-grader was when we pulled up to the admission gates. She’d wave her hand like a celebrity, and we’d get right in. And now, as our trip is winding down, that card will serve as a unique souvenir of the biggest trip we’ve ever taken together.

    It will help her remember the mind-blowing things we saw, the natural landscapes that made us feel like we were the aliens on a whole different planet entirely. That card will remind her of the world-famous geysers we saw at Yellowstone, and the things we didn’t even know existed like the colorful geyser basins and the Dragon’s Mouth formation that hinted at the enormous volcanic pressure under our feet at Yellowstone.

    Years from now, that card may spark a memory for her of the half-mile walk we took down into the Grand Canyon – a walk that consisted of a narrow dirt path and no handrails in sight. Although we had all obviously heard of the wonder of the Grand Canyon, hearing about it and seeing it in person are two different things entirely. Walking down that pathway, I felt like a visitor on the planet I have lived on all my life. It was completely foreign from anything I had ever seen.

    Another alien-like place we visited was White Sands National Monument in New Mexico. The giant white sand dunes there are completely cool to the touch, unlike beach sand. The dunes are so tall, we rented sleds to slide down them as if it was winter in summertime. I couldn’t let my kids have all the fun so I slid down them too, laughing as I wiped out on the particularly steep dunes. The whole landscape seemed like something you might see in Star Wars movies instead of here on Earth.

    But while the landscape we saw may have seemed extraterrestrial, we also saw flashes of human creativity and ingenuity everywhere we went. There were roads built through mountains and tales about people conquering the wilderness of the Grand Canyon long before they had any sort of technology to help them.

    We saw a bottle forest in California – a man had created it alongside the highway. For whatever reason when he looked at an empty bottle, he didn’t see it as junk. He saw it as a piece of a glass tree and he built a forest of those trees for people to enjoy at no cost. It might seem like a strange thing to do, but it was a spectacular sight.

    I’ve always been fascinated by the idea of aliens, ever since I was little. But as it turns out, you don’t have to look to the skies to spot something that looks like it belongs on another world. You just have to explore the places and people that are already on our planet. There’s still plenty of wonder here if you look hard enough.

    Image result for Alien sightings

    There appears to have been something in the air in June. According to an international group of alien hunters, the number of UFO sightings doubled last month. High-profile sightings last month included one of a 'flying saucer' UFO which visited Stonehenge

    Doomsday gap?

    Andrew W. Griffin / Red Dirt Report
    A trio of front page articles from 1962 addressing crisis in Cuba.

    OKLAHOMA CITY – Exactly 14 years to the day, before I was born, when U.S. Sen. John F. Kennedy first used the term “missile gap” – a phrase that was later parodied in Stanley Kubrick’s Cold War classic Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb and called a “Doomsday gap.”

    In that film, which was scheduled to be previewed by film critics on Nov. 22, 1963 – but was held off because it was the same day Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas – the Russian ambassador explains that his government had heard – via The New York Times! – that it was reported the U.S. was also working on a “Doomsday machine.” An arms race of insanity.

    We were afraid of a Doomsday gap,” the ambassador tells President Muffley (Peter Sellers).

    After the assassination, Kubrick and Columbia Pictures opted to hold off screening the anti-war farce until a few weeks later, in early 1964.

    But that “Doomsday gap” comment, in retrospect, comes off as a backhanded criticism of Kennedy’s presumed militarism.

    It happened on August 14, 1958. The same year Kennedy was re-elected to a second term in the Senate, representing Massachusetts. But he was also planning a run for the presidency in 1960 and began pounding away at President Eisenhower and the Republicans about being “weak on defense.”

    Why? The Soviet Union had launched Sputnik in 1957 and Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev announced that the USSR had an ICBM with a range of 8,000 miles and that they were in “mass production.”

    Kennedy said: “Our Nation could have afforded, and can afford now, the steps necessary to close the missile gap.

    Naturally, this being the Cold War, there was concern about this and so certain interests wanted to ramp up production of America’s nuclear arsenal in those dark days of the Cold War, leading up to the October 1962 missile crisis – nearly two years after outgoing President Eisenhower warned Americans of the growing “military-industrial complex.”

    Nevertheless, Kennedy wanted to appear strong on defense and so initially (and unwittingly) Kennedy used inflated numbers provided to him by U.S. Sen. Stuart Symington (D-Mo.). Symington was a former Secretary of the Air Force from 1947-50, who provided those inflated U.S. Air Force numbers.

    Coincidentally, Symington was head of the U.S. Air Force when Project Sign was initiated in 1948 , a government study of the UFO phenomenon, and its follow-up, in 1949, Project Grudge. Sec. Symington likely knew A LOT about the UFO mystery he did not share with his Show-Me State constituents or the rest of the American people.

    These would lead up to the launching of the notorious Project Blue Book (1952-69), which was later viewed as a government project designed to actually cover-up real reports of UFOs.

    Curiously, Sen. Symington’s cousin, Fife Symington III, was governor of Arizona when the widely-reported “Phoenix Lights” UFO sighting occurred in March 1997.

    At the time, due to public pressure and so many witnesses, Gov. Symington said he was going to investigate the mass UFO sighting over Arizona’s capital city, only to later hold a press conference and bring out his chief of staff in an alien costume – making the whole thing a big joke.

    But 10 years later, Symington made a major admission, saying he actually saw the UFO himself, calling it a “great mystery.”

    It was enormous and inexplicable. Who knows where it came from? A lot of people saw it, and I saw it too. It was dramatic. And it couldn't have been flares because it was too symmetrical. It had a geometric outline, a constant shape.

    KENNEDY & UFOs

    So, with the Cold War heating up during Kennedy’s term as president, it is said that he had a serious affair with actress and starlet Marilyn Monroe in the years leading up to her death (allegedly a suicide induced by an overdose of pills)

    In a book I read and reviewed – Dr. Donald R. Burleson’s UFOs and the Murder of Marilyn Monroe, the author alleges the Kennedy brothers had Monroe killed because she allegedly “knew too much” and had evidence kept in a secret diary. Apparently, Monroe was upset that she was being increasingly left out in the cold by the Kennedys. She felt used and wanted revenge and allegedly planned to hold a press conference about “what she knew.”

    Was this about Kennedy’s acknowledgement that the UFO “threat” was real? Classified investigations were taking place during the Kennedy administration as they were during the Eisenhower years, presumably with their knowledge. This was the era when most Americans "trusted" their government. Sure, secret projects were being conducted, many assumed, but with our best interest in mind, right?

    As I noted in my review: “Apparently, Marilyn Monroe was aware of not only the crashed Roswell saucer, but of JFK’s plans to kill Cuba’s Fidel Castro.”

    And then there was Kennedy's assassination a little over a year later. A lot of high weirdness surrounding that horrific event in our history.

    CRISIS MODE

    Again, this was in late summer of 1962, just weeks before those 13 days in October, better known as the “Cuban Missile Crisis.” With tensions between the U.S. and USSR at their heightes, particularly over concerns regarding Soviet ballistic missile deployment in Cuba – 90 miles from American shores – the Joint Chiefs of Staff wanted to attack and invade the island nation, controlled by Fidel Castro.

    Direct aggression against Cuba would mean nuclear war,” said Ernesto “Che” Guevara , as reported in The Times of London in an article headlined: “Attack us at your peril, Cocky Cuba warns U.S.”

    Che Guevara would be executed five years later in remote Bolivia under suspicious circumstances, as we’ve noted before.

    Fortunately, cooler heads prevailed back in '62 and a nuclear exchange was avoided. But the nukes never really went away. Many still exist and more countries now have nukes, as North Korea has announced. And with the egomaniacal and crazed Kim Jong-un in power, it seems as though these two bad-haired narcissists are bringing the world ever closer to World War III.

    REPEATER

    History has a funny – and frightening – way of repeating itself. Look at the tensions between right and left here in the United States. With the U.S. Civil War having ended 152 years ago, we seem to be fighting the same battles again, while addressing issues regarding race and equality that have not been adequately addressed for all these years, as things came to a head last week in Charlottesville, Virginia, which left a 32-year old protester, Heather Heyer, dead - and Nazi sympathizers practically gleeful.

    And yet President Trump sends signals to American fascists, racists and Nazi sympathizers that while he may not support them, the anti-fascist groups are equally bad.

    A meme making the rounds notes that that is similar to the Star Wars rebels fighting the Empire being compared and on a “level-playing field” with the planet-destroying Death Star.

    As author and Dartmouth College lecturer Mark Bray, an expert on “Antifa,” told Democracy Now this week: "And, you know, President Trump’s comments that the alt—quote-unquote, "alt-left" and alt-right are equivalent moral forces is really historically misinformed and morally bankrupt. The anti-fascist movement has a global history that stretches back over—about a century. You can trace them to Italian opposition to Mussolini’s Blackshirts, German opposition to Hitler’s Brownshirts, anti-fascists from around the world who had traveled to Spain to fight in the Spanish Civil War. 

    Over the past four years I have devoted a lot of time studying the history of the Spanish Civil War. While this was a conflict between fascists and anti-fascists in Spain, international help came from around the world, including the United States. People like longtime Dougherty, Okla. resident and congressional candidate Eugene V. "Debs" Poling, who left Oklahoma to fight the Gen. Franco's fascists in the late 1930's, only to be given a hard time - like so many other American anti-fascist volunteers - when we entered World War II, as being "premature anti-fascists." 

    That, of course, is absurd. Ask yourself: Is there ever a bad time to oppose fascism? Here at Red Dirt Report we have been warning readers for a long time now that fascism would truly take root in this country if Trump was elected president, as we predicted in a December 2015 article "Trumpism and the fascist menace."

    But many people, in those months before the election, did not want to believe that Trump truly held such odious views and was not willing to wholeheartedly condemn white nationalists, racists and fascists from the get-go. Here in Oklahoma, some of Trump's most vocal supporters were people like the disgraced State Sen. Ralph Shortey (R-OKC) and Islamophobic legislator State Rep. John Bennett, a Republican from Sallisaw.

    Isn't there something to be said about "the company you keep"? 

    In any event, Trump's ongoing "dog-whistle politics" helped elect him and now he seems to be doubling down as Democrats, and a few Republicans, call for Trump's censure over his repugnant "defense of white supremacists," as House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi of California said in a statement today.

    And then there are those seriously questioning Donald Trump's mental health.

    (Andrew W. Griffin / Red Dirt Report)

    But back to that Democracy Now interview with Mark Bray and the anti-fascists opposing Trump and the growing fascist menace in America:

    More recently, modern antifa can largely trace its roots to the anti-fascist movement in Britain in the ’70s, and the postwar period more generally, that was responding to a xenophobic backlash against predominantly Caribbean and South Asian migration, also to the German autonomous movement of the ’80s, which, really, after the fall of the Berlin Wall, had to respond to a really unprecedented neo-Nazi wave—unprecedented in the postwar period, of course.

    We should also note, in regards to the Spanish Civil War template, that international volunteers from around the world have been coming to the northern Syria area of Rojava to help the leftist YPG (People's Protection Units) fight ISIS and other related butchers and madmen running amok in that corner of the world. One wonders if Trump is aware of the egalitarian and anti-fascist YPG and what they actually stand for, considering YPG spokespeople said this week that the U.S. intends to stay in that autonomous region "for decades to come."

    KING MIDAS IN REVERSE, WITH NUKES

    Meanwhile, back in Washington (and at a few town halls, including here in Oklahoma) you see formerly spineless Republicans starting to back away from toxic Trump, who, despite his mass wealth, is a sort of “King Midas in Reverse" and causing the GOP to sink ever deeper into the shithole of their own making.

    And when that is the case, where everything you touch turns to shit, it gets mega-scary when one thinks about the power a president has, particularly when it comes to the threat of thermonuclear war.

    Today, in the New York Post, North Korea’s Deputy United Nations Ambassador Kim In Ryong said that if the Trump administration keeps up its “hostile policy and nuclear threat,” they will never put their nuclear weapons program “on the negotiating table.”

    And with Trump's administration is full-scale crisis mode and more rats ("the best people!") flee that sinking ship, we can only wonder what horrors and doom lie just around the corner. 

    I'll end with a "letter to the editor" we received from Oklahoma City resident Frank Silovsky. He has distinct memories of those 13 days in October 1962 when the world was at the precipice of a global thermonuclear war.

    Never will I forget that October day in 1962 when I sat in my dorm room "frozen" by the image of President Kennedy announcing to the nation that he had ordered our navy to stop and search every Soviet vessel heading to Cuba for the possibility of finding and removing missile launchers and/or nuclear explosives. Armageddon seemed nigh! That had been my deepest sense of impending doom. Until now.

    Khrushchev and Kennedy had both experienced the horror of war so their steady hands averted ultimate war.


    We are presently experiencing a very different and even stronger possibility of nuclear war. To our horror, the competing nations this time are led by two absolutely uninformed, bombastic, immature heads of state with no concept of war playing "chicken" with nuclear weapons! 

    North Koreans are helpless under their mad dictator. However, we have our illustrious Constitution providing ways to prevent "mad leadership" from dooming us. The 25th Amendment could eliminate our half of the madness. Is there time? Is there the courage? "We the people" can determine our fate

    NASA heeft ambitieus plan om aarde te behoeden voor supervulkaan Yellowstone - HLN.be

    Het is een toeristische trekpleister, bekend om zijn onwaarschijnlijke natuurschoon. Maar diep onder het prachtige Yellowstone National Park in de VS loert een potentiële wereldramp: een supervulkaan die, als hij uitbarst, de gehele mensheid kan bedreigen. NASA wil dat vermijden en heeft daarvoor een ambitieus plan.

    Onze planeet telt, voor zover bekend, een twintigtal supervulkanen. Gemiddeld barsten zij ongeveer om de 100.000 jaar in alle hevigheid uit. Voor Yellowstone is dat om de 600.000 jaar. Zo'n supereruptie kan catastrofaal zijn voor de mens. In 2012 berekende de VN dat de wereldwijde voedselreserves door de zogenaamde vulkanische winter zodanig zouden slinken dat er slechts genoeg eten voor 74 dagen overblijft. We zouden dus gewoon uitgehongerd worden.

    De laatste keer dat de vulkanische hotspot onder Yellowstone tot een desastreuze uitbarsting kwam, dateert inmiddels van ongeveer 600.000 jaar geleden. Toen belandde er 1.000 kubieke kilometer as en lava in de atmosfeer, waardoor de temperatuur op aarde stevig daalde. Niets wijst er voorlopig op dat de vulkaan nieuwe plannen in die richting heeft, ook al is het theoretisch gezien 'weer tijd'. 

    Voorkomen is alleszins beter dan genezen, denkt ook Brian Wilcox van NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory (California Institute of Technology): "De bedreiging van een supervulkaan is wezenlijk groter dan die van een asteroïde of komeet". Wilcox ziet wel gelijkenissen tussen deze twee mogelijke bedreigingen voor de mensheid en de aanpak daarvan: "De wetenschap moet erin investeren én moet er op tijd aan beginnen."

    En dus zoekt NASA al langer naar manieren om een nieuwe allesverwoestende eruptie te voorkomen. De wetenschappers vertrekken van het principe dat de magmakamer onder controle kan gehouden worden door de supervulkaan af te koelen. Die van Yellowstone laat ongeveer 60-70 procent van de uitgestote hitte ontsnappen in de atmosfeer - vandaar de talrijke geisers en warmwaterbronnen in het onmetelijke park. Maar de rest van de hitte stapelt zich ondergronds op en dat maakt een explosie uiteindelijk onvermijdelijk. Er zou daarom méér warmte moeten kunnen vrijkomen.

    Een mogelijke middel om voor verkoeling te zorgen is natuurlijk water. Maar het zou niet alleen ongelooflijk duur zijn om een megaconstructie te bouwen die meer water naar de vulkaan brengt, het zou bovendien ook erg moeilijk liggen bij de mensen, die het voor henzelf broodnodige water waarschijnlijk liever niet voor zo'n doel 'verspild' zien.

    Het alternatief van NASA bestaat erin om water onder hoge druk tien kilometer diep in de magmakamer op te pompen. Ook niet simpel en, met een kostenplaatje van zo'n 3 miljard euro, ook niet goedkoop. Maar NASA bedacht daarvoor eveneens een oplossing. Het rondstromende water zou terug naar boven komen met een temperatuur van 350 graden Celsius. Zo geeft de vulkaan stelselmatig meer warmte vrij én het is een uitstekende basis voor een geothermische centrale die aan een erg competitieve prijs elektriciteit zou kunnen produceren. 

    Win-win dus. Of niet? Er zit helaas nog wel een addertje onder het gras. Boren in een vulkaanschacht is niet zonder risico. In het slechtste geval kan je zelfs de eruptie uitlokken die je net wou voorkomen.

    Het is in elk geval een werk van erg lange adem: "Zij die aan zo'n project beginnen, zullen nooit de voltooiing ervan zien, of er tijdens hun leven zelfs maar een idee van hebben of het al dan niet succesvol blijkt", zegt Wilcox aan de BBC. Tienduizenden jaren zou de mens nodig hebben om Yellowstone op die wijze helemaal af te koelen. Dat moet wel niet om de bedreiging op zich alvast weg te nemen, maar zelfs dáárvoor zouden we, volgens Wilcox, honderden of zelfs duizenden jaren geduld moeten hebben. Toch moeten we volgens de wetenschapper best op lange termijn denken. En intussen de huidige voordelen ervan meepakken, zoals zo'n nieuwe elektriciteitscentrale, besluit hij.

    Studie VUB: robots kunnen nu ook eigen beschadigingen herstellen - HLN.be

     Bron: Belga

    © rv.

    Net zoals mensen een snee in hun handen, een breuk of een spierscheur zelf verzorgen en herstellen, kunnen robots nu ook zichzelf helen. Dat blijkt uit de studie "Self-healing soft pneumatic robots" van de Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB). Op deze manier zullen robots in de toekomst langer en zelfstandig kunnen werken.

    Het onderzoek richt zich op "soft robots" die gemaakt zijn uit flexibele en zachte materialen. Door hun flexibiliteit worden de soft robots ingezet voor talloze toepassingen zoals het grijpen van delicate en malse voorwerpen te grijpen in de voedselindustrie of in de minimaal-invasieve chirurgie. 

    Door hun zachte materialen garanderen ze veilig contact met mensen, maar zijn ze tegelijkertijd ook kwetsbaarder voor contact en schade door scherpe voorwerpen of overmatige druk. Het project aan de VUB gaf een grijper, een robothand en een kunstmatige spier in hun programmatie daarom een zelfhelende functie. 

    Nadat de prototypes gecontroleerd beschadigd werden, bleek dat het wetenschappelijke principe ook in de praktijk werkt. Realistische schade kon volledig worden hersteld, zonder zwakke plekken achter te laten. Zo konden de "soft robots" nadien hun taken weer volledig opnemen, terwijl ze in de realiteit vaak door mensen hersteld moeten worden of zelfs in de vuilnisbak belanden.

    "Robots kunnen niet alleen lichter en veiliger gemaakt worden, maar kunnen straks ook langer zelfstandig werken zonder telkens gerepareerd te moeten worden", vertelt professor Bram Vanderborght.

    De resultaten van de studie werden vandaag gepubliceerd in het vaktijdschrift Science Robotics.

    Mysterie ontrafeld: zo kwamen eerste dieren op Aarde - HLN.be

    Bron: The Independent

    De Aarde was ooit haast volledig bedekt met gletsjers en die hebben een sleutelrol gespeeld bij het ontstaan van complex leven. 

    © Wikipedia.

    Recent onderzoek werpt nieuw licht op de oorsprong van de eerste dieren. Daarin spelen reuzengletsjers een hoofdrol. Tijdens de periode van de 'Sneeuwbalaarde' verpulverden die gletsjers hele bergen en de daaropvolgende periode waarin de Aarde spectaculair opwarmde zou hebben bijgedragen tot complex leven. Daarmee was de dominantie van bacteriën voorbij.

    Dit voltrok zich over een periode van miljoenen jaren: hele bergketens werden tot stof vermalen door gigantische gletsjers die de hele Aarde bedekten en daarna luidde een drastische klimaatverandering een nieuw biologisch tijdperk in.

    Volslagen mysterie
    Tot zowat 650 miljoen jaar geleden werd het leven op Aarde gedomineerd door eenvoudige bacteriën, tot complexere levensvormen het overnamen. Waarom dit gebeurde, was tot voor kort een volslagen mysterie.

    Australische en Duitse wetenschappers stellen nu dat ze het keerpunt hebben vastgepind waarop het leven op Aarde begon te evolueren naar een gevarieerd dierenrijk: van insecten tot dinosaurussen en mensen.

    Deze "revolutie van ecosystemen" begon 700 miljoen jaar geleden, toen onze planeet de 'Sneewbalaarde' werd en zowat het hele aardoppervlak met ijs bedekt was.

    Levensnoodzakelijke voedingsstoffen

    Gigantische gletsjers vermaalden bergketens tot poeder, waarbij levensnoodzakelijke voedingsstoffen zoals fosfaten vrijkwamen. Daarna, tijdens een "extreme opwarming van de Aarde", smolt de Sneeuwbal en  voerden rivieren die voedingsstoffen naar de oceaan. 

    Het nieuwe gematigde klimaat en de plotse toestroom van voedsel schiepen de perfecte omstandigheden voor het eerste complexe leven. Denk daarbij niet aan gewervelde dieren, laat staan zoogdieren. Het ging toen om algen, ons aller voorouders.

    Hoe de onderzoekers dat uitvogelden? Professor Jochen Brocks, van de nationale universiteit van Australië, verklaart dat ze bewijzen hebben gevonden door gesteente uit die periode te verpletteren en er zo 'molecules van oude organismen' aan te onttrekken. "Die molecules leren ons dat het 650 miljoen jaar geleden interessant werd. Dat was een revolutie van ecosystemen, de opkomst van de algen".

    Basis van voedselketen
    De bacteriën die tot dan de oceanen domineerden, werden weggedrongen door deze complexere levensvormen. "Deze grote en voedzame organismen lagen aan de basis van de voedselketen en zorgden voor de energie die nodig was voor de ontwikkeling van complexe ecosystemen waarin steeds grotere en complexere dieren, zoals de mens, konden floreren", stel Brocks.

    De restanten van die oude organismen werden aangetroffen in afzettingsgesteente uit Australië dat dateert uit de periode net na het smelten van de Sneeuwbalaarde. Daarin werden tekenen van moleculaire fossielen gevonden. "Toen wisten we meteen dat we een baanbrekende ontdekking hadden gedaan, namelijk dat de Sneeuwbalaarde betrokken was bij de ontwikkeling van grote en complexe levensvormen", stelt professor Amber Jarrett van dezelfde universiteit.

    Het onderzoek werd gepubliceerd in het vakblad Nature.

    VEEL BUITENAARDS CONTACT BOVEN NEDERLAND ( VIDEO )

    Sommige mensen schijnen heel gemakkelijk contact te kunnen maken met beschavingen van andere planeten of dimensies, terwijl anderen nooit iets zien. 

    Dat ze er zijn, laten ze op alle mogelijke manieren weten zoals tijdens een nieuwsuitzending op de Amerikaanse zender FOX waarbij ze prominent voor het Capitool langs vliegen. 



    Het is toch wel mooi om te zien hoe zelfs tijdens mainstream nieuwsuitzendingen UFO’s door het beeld scheren, alsof ze draak steken met de wereldwijde doofpot rondom dit onderwerp. 

    Zo komt er tijdens een FOX nieuwsuitzending waar beelden van het Capitool in Washington worden uitgezonden, opeens een UFO door het beeld.


    xxx

    Het is dus ook geen klein onbeduidend bolletje wat dit keer over het scherm vliegt.

    xxx

    Maar, zoals gewoonlijk ziet het merendeel van de mensen het niet of doen degenen die het wel zien, net alsof het niet bestaat. Als we net doen alsof er niets is, dan is er ook niets. 

    In de volgende korte clip zie je aan het eind de beelden van het Capitool en de UFO die van links naar rechts door het beeld vliegt. 

     
    Maar, niet alleen in Amerika hebben ze bijzondere dingen, ook in ons land komen best spectaculaire dingen voor. En net zoals met bovenstaande nieuwsuitzending, zijn er maar heel weinig mensen die het echt zien. 

    Enkele maanden geleden publiceerden wij een paar UFO opnames van een dame die deze met de regelmaat van de klok waarneemt en filmt. 

    We hebben echter geen idee wie het is of zelfs waar die opnames worden gemaakt. Maar, ze verschijnen nog steeds zo goed als iedere dag en wat het ook is dat ze vastlegt, het is duidelijk dat het geen vliegtuigen of drones zijn. Alhoewel, op sommige dagen vliegen er ook wel eens vliegtuigen door het beeld, maar die zijn dan te herkennen aan de verlichting die ze voeren en het feit dat ze een bepaalde koers volgen. 

    Uit het patroon en de koers van de enkele vliegtuigen die langskomen is af te leiden dat ze niet ver van een vliegveld woont, want de toestellen die je zo af en toe waarneemt, lijken een pad en een koers te volgen die wijzen op een landing. 

    Op de meeste dagen zijn er echter geen vliegtuigen waar te nemen en het lijkt erop dat een soort afspraak heeft met die UFO’s. 

    Zoals de volgende die ze enkele dagen geleden heeft gemaakt: 

     

    Een andere aanwijzing dat er wellicht iets meer achter zit dan alleen maar “geluk” dat die objecten net opduiken op het moment dat zij staat te filmen, zie je in de titel van de volgende video, eveneens enkele dagen geleden opgenomen: “UFO´s vandaag mooi prachtig om te horen stem van alien op camera apart” 

    Het lijkt alsof zij één van die mensen is die bewust of onbewust contact hebben met bewoners van andere planeten/dimensies dan de onze en dat deze zich op bepaalde tijden aan haar laten zien en horen. 

     

    Vooralsnog blijft het een raadsel hoe iemand, ergens in Nederland, er in slaagt om dag na dag bijzondere opnames te maken van onbekende objecten in de lucht.

    Nazis, Antarctica, and Bigfoot

    Nazis. Has there ever been a greater villain or evil force out there? Throughout history they have not only served to be the perpetrators of horrific acts, but also the target of numerous, countless conspiracy theories and strange tales. They really manage to fit whatever the creepy story calls for, and there are many such stories. Among the many are the rumors that the Nazis had a secretive, cover base in the cold depths of the continent of Antarctica, a tale which in itself has spread out to cover many facets of the weird. Yet there is one accounting particular that I feel is particularly surreal and odd. It is a harrowing and horrific tale of soldiers out in the frigid elements, fighting not only the landscape itself, but unknown entities dwelling within it. In short, it is the perfect story of Nazi bizarreness.

    Before beginning, it is first perhaps best to first understand a little of the history surrounding the legends of secret Nazi bases buried in Antarctica. The Nazis did indeed come to this bleak, remote wasteland of a continent, but officially only once. The expedition in question was carried out from December 1938 to April 1939, and involved a small contingent sent to Antarctica aboard the vessel Schwabenland. While this all sounds rather ominous, the expedition was mostly exploratory in nature, involving marine science, collection of specimens, surveying, mapping in the region, in particular the western part of Queen Maud Land, and it also had the intention of staking a claim to whaling rights in the region, which were being monopolized by Britain and Norway at the time. The expedition went about its work and left, with no real evidence that they ever even began to build any sort of permanent base there, and this was the only time they went to Antarctica at the time, with further planned expeditions apparently scrapped with the coming of World War II. The next time the Germans would ever set foot in Antarctica was with a Russian expedition in 1959. Officially anyway.

    Some of the original Nazi expedition to Antarctica

    Of course since this is the Nazis we are talking about here, conspiracies of a German Antarctic base were immediately flying around even at the time, with the facility being claimed to be a gathering place for German occultists, scientists, and various members of shadowy groups such as the Illuminati. Such tales were only fueled by cryptic alleged statements made by German naval admiral Karl Dönitz, who would go on to be president of Germany in the wake of Hitler’s death, who said that they had just such a base, claiming it was an “invulnerable fortress, a paradise-like oasis in the middle of eternal ice,” as well as alleged reports from Argentina in 1945 that a German U-boat had been captured there that was found to be responsible for ferrying Hitler and other high ranking officlas from Germany to Antarctica. From here the legends and myths of a Nazi Antarctic base really took off, and covered the full spectrum of wild conspiracy theories, with claims ranging from the Nazis experimenting with UFO technology, to discoveries of ancient civilizations, to alien lizard people living under the ice, to stashing stolen artwork there, to claims that Hitler had been whisked away to the base for his own protection rather than dying, to the idea that it was meant to be the launching point for a shadowy, sinister new world order.

    One of the events that really cemented the idea of a Nazi base in Antarctica into persistent lore was a very real operation called Operation Highjump, a 1947 American led military mission which was to be the largest scale expedition to the continent ever mounted, involving 4700 men, 33 aircraft, and 13 ships. The official reason for this massive operation was to train troops for fighting and test vehicles and equipment in extreme cold and icy conditions in case a war broke out with Russia in the Arctic, as well as to establish a U.S. presence in Antarctica to counter any Russian activity there. Of course, with such a large military expedition to the continent and rumors already swirling of a Nazi base there, it was not long at all before conspiracies were drawn to it like moths to a flame.

    The main idea behind these theories was that the U.S. actually went there to hunt down and destroy any remaining German troops stationed at their Antarctic base. Despite the fact that the Germans had already surrendered and the war was over, the Nazis were claimed to still be operating in secret in Antarctica, and it was thought that Operation Highjump was sent to wipe them out once and for all. The theory really takes a sharp right turn into weirdness with claims that the U.S. force met resistance from Germans utilizing “flying saucers” and other assorted alien weaponry, forcing the Americans to resort to annihilating them with nuclear bombs. Although there is no evidence at all that this ever happened, and despite the fact that not only was Operation Highjump carried out nowhere near anywhere the Germans had ever been to, but that none of the 11 journalists embedded with the operation made even the faintest reference to such an outlandish event, this conspiracy has remained stubbornly entrenched in the spooky lore. Only adding to the whole conspiracy was the persistent presence of British troops in Antarctica in the years after World War II, which were seen as there specifically to fight the remaining Nazis, often teaming up with the Americans to do so.

    Regardless of their many permutations, rumors of secret Nazi base in Antarctica refused to die, and only picked up speed in the years after the war, helped along by an array of rumors and hearsay. In a bizarre book in 1962 by an Albert Bender, called Flying Saucers and the Three Men, the former Air Force veteran claimed that he had been abducted by aliens and taken to a secret Antarctic base, which was populated by the descendants of the reptilian beings who had originally built the facility. These aliens told him that after World War II the Germans had also been there and that they had shared their technology with them. It is all very strange to be sure, but it and other stories like it served to spark far-out conspiracy theories even further.

    Stories of a Nazi base in Antarctica have continued right up to the present. Although they have consistently been debunked, they just refuse to go away. It is all bizarre to say the least, and there is certainly more to it than I have gone over here, but this is just a brief history, and the purpose of this article is not to focus merely on the idea of a Nazi Antarctic base but rather a damn strange story connected to the legend, which was originally published in Nexus Magazine, Vol. 12, #5; August-September 2005, and which involves Nazi bases in Antarctica, British SAS special forces, and Bigfoot.

    The story is related by a person who claims to have been an SAS officer, who states that in October of 1945 he was called to participate in a mission so secret that even his commanding officer had no idea what was really going on. After a stop at Gibraltar, he was then whisked away with a special unit to the Falkland Islands, during which time the troops were ordered to complete silence, forbidden from talking amongst themselves or speculating about why they were there. Upon arrival at the Falkland Islands, they then for one month engaged in intensive, grueling combat training in cold winter conditions and arctic warfare, under a Norwegian who had once served in the Norwegian Resistance.

    At the end of this hellish training regiment, the group was finally properly briefed on their true purpose, bing told that they had been recruited for a ultra top-secret mission to investigate anomalous activity reported at the time from a British base in Antarctica at Maudheim, in eastern Antarctica, as well as wipe out the supposed German base lying there deep under the ice, which was referred to as “Britain’s Secret War.” They were told about the secret German base located near the British Maudheim base, and briefed on the various German activities and movements in the region, as well as on the numerous German officials who had supposedly been sequestered away in the subterranean compound.

    Things steadily got weirder as the briefing continued. The group was told that the original scientists stationed at the base and their armed entourage had claimed that they had found a tunnel leading beneath the ice, followed by rantings over the radio talking of “Polar Men, ancient tunnels and Nazis,” but that shortly after this contact with the British base had then been lost after an ominous last transmission that allegedly proclaimed “The Polar Men have found us!” The special forces that were gathered there were told that they were first to investigate why radio contact had been lost with the base and who the “Polar Men” were, which all sounded like a rather spooky proposition that no one present felt comfortable about. They were also told that great pains were being taken to make sure that the Americans and the Russians did not get wind of the existence of a Nazi base in Antarctica. The unit was then flown over the icy, bleak landscape of Antarctica to a remote drop-off point located around 20 miles from the British Maudheim Base, all under complete radio silence. Once on the ground, they were on their own, the only assistance provided being some snow tractors left for them to use. They then stalked their way through the icy, inhospitable terrain, ever wary of an enemy attack, until they reached the supposed entrance to the abandoned base. Although they expected the place to be bristling with activity, it was found to be oddly silent, even devoid of life. The witness would described what happened then thus:

    Instantly, our suspicions were roused, but, just like all the previous campaigns I had fought during the War, we had a job to do and so our personal fears could not shroud our judgement. As we split up to search the base, a trip wire was detonated and a siren sounded, destroying the silence and startling the whole force.  A shout was soon heard, demanding us to identify ourselves, but the voice could not be targeted.  With our guns raised the Major introduced us to the voice, and then, thankfully, the voice was given a body.  The voice belonged to a lone survivor, and what he divulged made us more anxious and had us wishing that there were more troops amongst our ranks.

    What this lone survivor told them was that there was another survivor in “Bunker One,” where he was trapped within with one of the beastly “Polar Men” they had heard about. The unit decided to try and make their way to this Bunker One and try to open it, much to the objections of the survivor they had found. They warily approached the door to the isolated bunker, wondering what sort of horrors might lie within, and argued amongst themselves over who would be the first one to enter. The witness would say of what transpired next:

    Fortunately, I was not selected to enter; that honour was bestowed on the youngest member of our unit.  He proceeded inside, hesitating slightly as he struggled with the door. Once inside, a silence descended across the base, followed moments later by two gunshots. The door was opened and the Polar Man dashed to freedom. None of us was expecting what we saw, and the Polar Man had fled into the surrounding terrain so quick that only a few token shots were fired. Out of fear and awe at what we had seen, we all decided to go into the bunker.  Go in we did, and two bodies were found.  The soldier who had pulled the short straw was found with his throat ripped out, and, more heinous, the survivor had been stripped to the bones.

    The death of one of their own so soon after arrival unsettled and angered the unit, and they relentlessly grilled the survivor they had found for more answers. They asked him why the dead man they had found had been stuck in the bunker in the first place, and the frightened survivor chose to tell the tale from the beginning. It turned out that the area they were in was one of Antarctica’s “dry valleys,” devoid of ice and snow, which had facilitated the discovery of the “ancient tunnel.” After that, personnel were sent to see where the tunnel led, and it turned out to stretch for miles underground before ending in a vast cavern which was supposedly warmed considerable, perhaps by geothermal action.

    The deeper the expedition had gone into the cavern, the more discoveries they had made. It seemed that the Nazis had been there, as they had set up artificial lighting and built hangars and docks for U-boats in the subterranean lakes that were found strewn about, as well as inscrutable excavations down in the dark with unknown purposes. Some Nazis had apparently still been roving about, as they proceeded to capture and kill several of the survivor’s expedition. The remaining expedition members fled and tried to block the tunnel, and this was when the Polar Men had descended upon them, generating that eerie last message. The creatures in question were described as being heavily built, hairy creatures with a mix of ape and human features and possessing supernatural strength and speed.

    The unit managed to retreat and make their way back to their base, but they had then split up into separate bunkers. One of these survivors had then managed to lure one of the Polar Men into his bunker and lock it in, which had later led to his death and the destruction of his radio gear. The stammering survivor then cryptically told the SAS unit that these Polar Men were the result of Nazi experimentation, although no further details were forthcoming. This revelation was immediately shot down by the unit’s scientist as hogwash, but the others gave it weight and wanted to know what the “Polar Men” wanted, which was meant with the sinister response of to “wait, watch and wonder just how different we taste.” With this alarming revelation, a guard detail was allegedly set up to keep watch, and the next day they were ordered to investigate the tunnel for themselves. They made their way to the entrance in the dry valley which the survivor had told them about, and the witness would say:

    Upon arriving in the dry valley we were all amazed, for we had been told that Antarctica was completely ice-bound and yet here we were in a valley that reminded me of being back in the North African Sahara.  We were forbidden from even approaching the tunnel until the temporary base camp had been erected; and whilst the men constructed the base, the scientist and Major investigated the tunnel.

    After a few hours, they returned to the now complete camp to chronicle what they had seen and what our next plan of action was to be.  The tunnel was not an ancient passageway at all, claimed the scientist, although the Major added that the walls were made of smooth granite and looked infinite.  We were informed that we would be able to make our own minds up after we had rested for the night.

    Unfortunately, that night these strange creatures would come to them in the darkness, and one of them was apparently shot and killed when it ventured too close. The team scientist ascertained that the thing was some sort of hairy, cold adapted human, and the corpse was purportedly put on ice for further later study. When morning arrived, the Major and the survivor went on into the tunnel with a small contingent of men as the others waited behind to guard against further attacks and keep the mysterious corpse safe. They eventually reached the cavern the survivor had spoken of, which was artificially lit just as described, and they had to be careful to stay in the shadows and hide from the various Nazi forces that were buzzing about as they slowly went about laying mines and explosives. The unit was apparently spotted and pursued by both Nazi soldiers and the ape-like Polar Men, and the witness would describe the next part of the tale thus:

    Upon reaching the tunnel, we needed to put an obstacle in the way to slow down our enemy long enough for the mines to detonate.  Some mines were placed at the entrance to the tunnel, and when the explosions were heard we were hopeful that not just the base had been comprehensively destroyed but so, too, the enemy forces giving chase.  We were wrong. The mines did indeed close the tunnel, but, for those Nazis and Polar Men behind, the chase was still on.  In a fighting retreat, only three of the 10 escaped the tunnel:  the Norwegian, the scientist and myself.  The rest had fallen gallantly in making sure that some of the party survived.

    The unit supposedly managed to escape to the entrance of the tunnel and close it for good with explosives, leaving little evidence that it had ever been there at all. The unit was subsequently disbanded and sent their own ways, after being told that they were strictly forbidden from ever discussing what they had seen. The team’s scientist would go on to try and explain it all away, saying that the Polar Men had merely been “unkept, insane soldiers,” but the rest of the group knew better. The mission in the meantime was swept under the rug and never made official.

    It is all a very dramatic report and full of quite cinematic imagery, but it was truly reported as happening in just this way, and I have not embellished it at all. I have  to say it is one of the more far-out accounts I have ever seen, and you can read a fuller transcription of this account here. It could be a completely fabricated story or just another of the many, many outlandish Nazi tales out there, but it certainly is quite an entertaining read. Make of it what you will. As ridiculous as this report may sound, it serves to add yet another twisted, very odd tale to the pile of Nazi lore out there already. Nazis just have a way of drawing such tales to them, and they have made the perfect villains and conspiracy targets for decades. Among all of the weird tales and conspiracies, I would have to say captive Bigfoot-like creatures at a secret base in Antarctica has to rank up there on the meter of the bizarre.

    An ominous “cloud tsunami” rolls in along the coast of Sydney, Australia, on Friday, signaling the coming of severe storms for the area.

    The massive formation, actually called a shelf cloud, stunned Australians, with a flurry of photos hitting social media.

    The Australian Bureau of Meteorology issued a severe thunderstorm warning for the area with possible threats of large hail storms, heavy rains and forceful winds.

    Powerful thunderstorms hit parts of Australia throughout the past week.  

    Meanwhile, New Yorkers and their neighbors enjoyed an unseasonably warm day on Friday, with record highs in the Big Apple, as well as in Connecticut.

    The National Weather Service reported temps of up to 75 degrees in New York City, a high for Nov. 6 ( via nypost.com ).

    MENACING-LOOKING CLOUD STUNS BRAZILIAN TOWN 

    At first look the obscure cloud resembles a meteorite trail or tornado, frozen in time, seconds before the impending doom. At second glance,it looks more like a freaky cloud formation.

    João Paulo Magalhães captured the cloud in all its glory at 5pm in the city of Teixeira de Freitas, in the extreme south of the Brazilian state of Bahia.

    Magalhães said while the “very unusual” cloud remained only about four minutes, people were worried it would form a tornado.

    “It really looked like the entrance to a meteorite or something,” he said.

    Other residents posted pictures of the freaky phenomenon, some calling it the “work of God”.

    UFOs hidden in clouds - Flying Saucer emerging from cloud formation

    Many people throughout the world have captured images of strange looking UFO-shaped clouds. 

    The impressive thing is that, while in most cases the weird phenomenon can be explained as ordinary clouds, there are special clouds that seemed to be made artificially.


    UFO-hunters are convinced that UFO’s are hidden inside these special cloud formations to monitor us.

    The video below is an interesting compilation of UFO’s who have camouflaged their self inside unnatural looking cloud formations, including a flying saucer emerging from a cloud.

    NASA: “We’re Going to Try and Make Oxygen From the Atmosphere on Mars”

     
    IN BRIEF
    For any Mars exploration plans, surviving on the Red Planet is as important as getting there. This is why NASA is looking forward to its Mars 2020 Rover mission, which would include a test for making oxygen on the Red Planet's surface.

    SMALL STEPS FOR MAN

    Getting to Mars is the biggest space project this generation will ever see, that is until we actually land people on the red planet. Such a bold endeavor has a cornucopia of nitty-gritty details to iron out, in one way or another, before proceeding with a manned mission. The most obvious is the need to build rockets and spacecraft able to ferry probes and people. For NASA’s mission to Mars, this also entails the construction of a lunar space station that’ll serve as a jump-off point to the rest of the solar system.

    Speaking to Futurism after the successful launch of SpaceX’s CRS-12 mission on Monday, NASA Acting Chief Administrator Robert Lightfoot, Jr. explained how getting to Mars requires small, incremental steps. “When you look at our plans today [for getting to Mars], we use the International Space Station as much as we can…for example, our life support systems, we test them up there.” He added that the Moon would be the next logical step in this process.

    But getting to Mars and surviving there are two disparate yet equally important aspects of the same mission. “We try and make sure that, when we do a science mission or a human spaceflight mission, that we have a cross between the science and the human exploration,” Lightfoot explained.

    MAKING LIFE POSSIBLE

    Now no one wants to fly to Mars, land on the ground, yawp “I did it!”, turn around and head home. Space exploration is more than symbolic pretense. We want to stay on Mars and install a colony. Of course, the eventual plan is to terraform Mars, but that could take thousands of years to accomplish — if it’s at all possible. So, in Lightfoot’s mind, we ought to start small, and there’s nothing more basic for survival on Mars (or anywhere) than having a secure source of air to breathe. “The next lander that is going to Mars, Mars 2020, has an experiment where we are going to try and actually generate oxygen out of the atmosphere on Mars, clearly that’s for human capability down the road,” Lightfoot said.

    What we know is that the Red Planet’s atmosphere is thinner than Earths, with some 95.32 percent carbon dioxide, 2.7 percent nitrogen, 1.6 percent argon, and about 0.13 oxygen, plus a bunch of other elements in even smaller amounts. By contrast, the Earth’s atmosphere has 78 percent nitrogen and 21 percent oxygen. Water won’t be much of a problem, though.

    Is it possible to make oxygen from Mar’s atmosphere?  NASA’s had plans for this since 2014, when it first revealed the Mars 2020 Rover. It involves bringing some microbial life to Mars, perhaps bacteria or algae, that would would use Martian soil as fuel and then pump out oxygen as a product. The oxygen could then be harnessed and made available for breathing and also to make rocket fuel for return flights to Earth.

    It may sound like science fiction right now, but lab experiments have shown that it’s possible. That’s why the Mars 2020 Rover mission is crucial. Other efforts to make Mars habitable include plans of building a magnetic shield around the planet, similar to Earth’s, building a nuclear reactor, as well as growing potatoes like in Matt Damon in The Martian.

    The Most Mind-Bogglingly Weird Alien Encounters

    Accounts of close encounters of the third kind, in which human beings are directly confronted with alleged beings from another world, are by nature already quite bizarre and otherworldly enough as it is. There is no denying that this is an area that has pushed out and stretched against the boundaries of the strange and then some, yet there are some cases among these that truly rocket out into the outer fringes of the surreal and the deeply weird. From space goblins to floating brains, to amorphous blobs from beyond and spacemen that can fit in the palm of your hand, here we will look at the strangest of the strange when it comes to supposed contact with aliens from another world.
    One of the earlier, weirdest, and indeed more famous of accounts that seem almost too bizarre to possibly be true is the infamous case of what have become known as the the Hopskinsville Goblins. The story begins at a remote, rural farmhouse in the wilds of Christian County, Kentucky, on Old Madisonville Road near the town of Hopkinsville on the night of August 21, 1955. On this quiet evening the Sutton family had a guest over by the name of Billy Ray Taylor, as well as his wife, June, and at at some point Taylor went outside to get some water from the well at around sundown. As he made his way to the well, he allegedly saw a bizarre sight in the air above, which looked like a streaking light that was spewing multicolored sparks and flames all over the place. The light passed overhead and then seemed to drop down into a nearby gully around 300 yards away, after which the humid night was infused with an eldritch glow, and the startled Taylor ran back to the safety of the house.

    Once inside, he excitedly told everyone about what he had just seen, but at the time no one really believed him and they thought he was just messing around, despite his obvious fear and insistence that he had really seen it. However skeptical the rest of the family was, they would soon have a change of heart when the dog began to start barking wildly at some unseen trespasser outside in dark. Looking outside it was noticed that what was at first thought to be just a faint light that was seemingly bobbing about and approaching the house, and as it drew closer it was found to be one of the strangest looking creatures anyone present had ever seen or even imagined.

    There hovering in the air was a small glowing humanoid figure around 3-feet in height wearing a metallic suit of some sort. It was described as having greenish skin, bulging eyes, and an oversized bald head with bat-like ears and a large, lipless mouth that stretched between them. The body was thin, and its arms were long, tapered and spider-like, tipped with what looked like talons. The frightened Suttons quickly did the human thing, gathering up a rifle and shotgun as the thing hovered around outside, and when it was close enough they fired upon it. Although they thought they had hit it, the creature merely flipped over and retreated into the shadows. Shortly after this, the head of another, either the same creature or another, peeked in through one of the windows, prompting another volley of fire that once again failed to do any noticeable damage to whatever it was, merely blowing out the window in a spray of shards of glass as the strange monster ran off.

    Curious as to whether they had hurt the thing or not, Taylor and the Sutton father, John Charley Sutton, warily crept outside, guns at the ready, and took a furtive glance around. At first there was nothing, but then Taylor let out a scream as a clawed hand purportedly reached down from the eve of the back door and grabbed at his head, managing to gain a fistful of hair as Sutton dragged his friend back inside and slammed the door. The oldest Sutton son, 24-year-old Lucky Sutton, then opened the door to take a potshot at the roof with his shotgun, after which the creature floated down to the ground, apparently unhurt, and scampered off.

    As bizarre and terrifying as this all was, there soon appeared other entities similar in appearance to the original one they had seen out in the night, and it became apparent that they were under siege by a whole group of the creatures, an estimated 10 to 15 of them. For the next three hours the sounds of the rural Kentucky night were punctuated by the staccato blare of gunfire as the mysterious floating monsters made passes at the house as the family cowered within and took shots at them. For the most part the bullets whizzing out into the murk either failed to hit their mark or were ineffectual, with the few that did hit occasionally letting out metallic pings, like “a coin hitting a metal bucket,” as if the creatures were made of steel. All of this happened against the backdrop of a faint green haze glowing from somewhere in the distance, perhaps the location where the “spaceship” had gone down in the gully.

    Since the home had no phone service, the family were at the mercy of the monsters lurking outside, unable to call anyone for help and slowly running out of ammunition. At some point the activity died down, and the creatures’ relentless, seemingly aggressive yet ultimately inscrutable passes at the house ceased. Seeing this as a chance to get out of there, the family and their guests piled into their cars and sped away towards town, where they promptly informed rather bemused police of what had happened to them. As skeptical as they were, officers nevertheless made their way out to the farm to take a look, but found no sign of the reported “goblin” creatures other than the damage inflicted by all of the gunfire. In some accounts, Air Force personnel also came to the farm to investigate the strange occurrence, although it is unclear if they found anything of note.

    The police left without incident and the family returned to their home, but soon after a second attack would occur, as glowing faces began to bloom out of the darkness once again, much to their horror. Once again the bizarre beasts came at the farmhouse, floating about, popping up to peer into windows, and scurrying around on the roof as the family once again opened fire, and this went on until dawn, when whatever the strange intruders were stalked off and this time did not return. From the very following day the dramatic, spooky encounter was splashed all over newspapers of the area, fanning out to become national news as reporters and the curious converged upon the farm. Faced with reporters and monster hunters camping out on their property hoping to see the creatures for themselves and the relentless, never-ending media attention focused on them, the family sold their farm and moved off.

    It seems like something out of a horror movie, just so incredibly dramatic and bizarre in nature, and it has remained one of the oddest UFO accounts ever. To this day, the Hopkinsville Goblin incident has been picked apart and written of countless times, and has become one of the weirdest and most well-known alien encounters out there. What happened to these people and what was it that came down to seemingly attack them? What did these things want? Were they ever even real at all? If they were, then whatever they were, one things seems clear; they certainly seemed to have not received the warmest welcome to Earth.

    Other such inexplicably bizarre alien encounter reports were made throughout the 1950s as well. In 1957, a retired teacher named Mary Starr allegedly woke up in the middle of the night in her home in Old Saybrook, Connecticut, in the U.S., to see a piercingly bright light outside of her bedroom window. The object was described as floating over her yard, and seemed to be a large craft of some type with rectangular windows on its sides. Fascinated by what she was seeing, Starr then supposedly gazed into one of the windows and could see two decidedly bizarre entities moving about within, which were about 4-feet tall. According to the witness, they had translucent cubes for heads holding within them bright red cores, rubbery bodies that were like “skirts,” and handless appendages akin to tentacles. After a moment of observing the outlandish beings, the windows then apparently vanished as if they had never been there, and an antenna or protrusion of some sort came out of the craft, after which the whole thing began to glow before silently shooting straight up into the night sky.

    The following year, in 1958, there was a weird account from Sweden, in which witnesses Stig Rydberg and Hans Gustafsson claimed to have been driving along a remote road through a thick fog at around 3 AM when they spotted a UFO measuring around 12 feet across and ringed by four “jelly bags” that were blue in color and which jumped wildly about through the air around the main craft. As the two men stopped their car to look on at the unusual sight, the four entities then reportedly descended and attacked them, demonstrating some sort of suction power with which they grabbed the witnesses and began pulling them up to the craft. The two horrified witnesses claimed that they had tried to struggle to get away, but that their arms and legs merely sank into bodies composed of gelatinous ooze that smelled like “ether and burnt sausage.” Somehow Rydberg managed to squirm free, after which he laid on the car horn and this apparently startled the creatures enough for them to drop the other man and retreat into their ship to take off into the night at astronomical speeds. The two men would say that they felt sick for days after the encounter with the “space blobs.”

    The 1970s really brought a wealth of such incredibly bizarre apparent alien encounters, and some of the best can be found in this era. On August 19, 1970 there was a curious encounter in the country of Malaysia. On this day, six children were apparently playing in a forested area when a tiny UFO measuring around 3 feet across came down to land in a clearing, after which five miniature, 3-inch tall humanoids descended out of the vehicle wearing odd blue spacesuits and one in a yellow helmet adorned with spikes. The diminutive beings then marched over to a tree and seemed to be busying themselves with installing some sort of mechanical device to a tree. One of the kids apparently went over and tried to grab one of the little creatures, and it promptly shot at him with a “ray gun,” injuring his thigh. Interestingly, there have been many other such sightings of mini UFOs and humanoid beings in Malaysia as well, with the witnesses typically being children.

    The following year, on August 17, 1971, there was a perhaps even stranger alien encounter from Palos Verdes, California. Witnesses John Hodges and Pete Rodriguez were allegedly headed to their car at 2 AM when they saw off through the trees a faint, mysterious glow emanating from beyond. They got into their car, switched on the headlights, and their suspended in the beams of light from their vehicle were what were described as two large, blueish entities that looked just like disembodied human brains, hovering right in the middle of the road and surrounded by clouds of vapor that seemed to cling to them. The larger one of the “brains” was described as having a prominent red eye set within it, and this is the one that began to move towards the vehicle for purposes unknown.

    The two terrified men understandably got out of there as fast as they possibly could, and it was later noticed that they had 2 hours of missing time. In 1976, Hodges would undergo hypnotic regression after years of being plagued by nightmares and wondering what had happened to them out on that lonely road. Under hypnosis, Hodges revealed that he had dropped Rodriquez off at home and arrived at his own house to find the larger brain waiting for him there, which had then telepathically spoken to him. He claimed that he had then been taken into the brains’ ship to some sort of “control room,” where it was revealed that they were merely telepathic tools being used by other aliens, this time more akin to the “grey” aliens typically described in more mainstream reports, although in this case they stood over 7-feet tall.

    These master aliens then apparently showed Hodges various images of nuclear war and destruction as they explained that the human race had grown too powerful for its own good. He was also shown another planet that had been completely destroyed by another race that had met the same fate, and was admonished that humankind would be the “instruments of their own fate,” telling him, “Take the time to understand yourselves. The time draws near when you shall need to!” Hodges then says that he felt a potent buzzing sensation in the back of his head and found himself back in his own car. In the years after, he became convinced that these aliens had implanted him with what he called a “translator cell,” and that he received frequent telepathic communications from them through this device, in which they made dire predictions such as an apocalyptic war in the Middle East and the future widespread use of nuclear weapons. Whether you think this story and its “space brains” has any truth to it at all or not, you have to admit it is a damn strange tale all the same.

    Also quite unusual is the encounter reported by Charles Hickson and Calvin Parker, who on October 11, 1973, were fishing on the Pascagoula River in Mississippi. As they cast their lines out they suddenly began to hear a series of strange hissing, whirring noises coming from behind them. When they turned around to look, they apparently came face to face with an egg-shaped spacecraft hovering over the river not far away, and a door then opened to regurgitate forth baffling creatures that really defy any easy classification. There standing in the doorway of the craft were three 6-foot tall beings with grey leathery, wrinkled skin and thin, carrot-like protrusions jutting out of their heads. The hands and feet were said to be fused into pinchers, and the eyes and mouths were just slits.

    Just as they were reeling from the shock of seeing such a thing, the men realized that they had been somehow paralyzed by an unseen force, which kept them glued to where they were. Stuck as they were, the two witnesses made easy pickings for the bizarre aliens, who plucked them up and dragged them aboard their unearthly vessel. Hickson would later claim that he was brought aboard the ship and brought to a room with a blinding light, in which he was subjected to an examination by an oval shaped robotic probe of some sort. After around 20 minutes, the two were deposited back onto the bank of the river and the mysterious craft floated off. Hickson then claimed that he had found Parker on the riverbank as well in a rather disheveled state, crying and praying to God.

    The two went back to their car and sat there in shock for an undetermined amount of time, before heading home. They would later contact the Kessler Air Force Base and the local sheriff with their bizarre tale, which went about as well as you would expect. No one really took the eyebrow-raising story seriously, but the whole case inevitably became splashed about local newspapers soon after. Hickson in particular went on to entertain questions on the matter and even help publish a book about the whole incident called UFO Contact at Pascagoula, while Parker ducked out of the limelight, and eventually moved out of state to avoid the constant media attention. For is part, Parker claimed that he had passed out at the beginning of the ordeal and only come to after it was over, only recalling bits and pieces under hypnosis.

    The case was picked apart by some of the most eminent UFO researchers at the time, who for the most part agreed that the men at least really believed that what they had seen was real. The case of the Pascagoula aliens has since been met with a good amount of skepticism. It has been called everything from a shared hallucination to a flat-out lie, which has only been made more complicated by the fact that Hickson’s account only seemed to get more and more bizarre and complex as time went on. It has been suggested that they had a shared imaginary experience, that they were drinking, or even that they were just tripping balls on LSD at the time, but no one really knows what happened except the two witnesses themselves.

    Moving on into 1977, there is the weird account of 19-year-old Lee Parish, who on January 27, 1977, claimed that he spied a rectangular UFO hovering in the sky before he was whisked into the air by a beam of light while driving home. He then found himself upon some sort of spacecraft, where he was presented to three very bizarre beings. One of the entities was described as being like a black “tombstone” 20-feet high, with a robotic arm extending from its front. Another of the things was smaller and looked like a red prism of some kind, while yet another was 6-feet tall and described as being a motionless white prism with two robotic arms and a “wedge-like” head, which produced strange noises like teeth being brushed.

    At the time, Lee had the strong feeling that the white one was the leader, although he did not know why he had this impression. During the encounter, the red one was seen as the most anxious, seemingly afraid of their human guest and hiding behind the others, although it did at one point extend a robotic looking arm to try and touch him, which produced a vague, unsettling sensation of coldness and pain. Eventually, the three beings lined up and seemed to merge together, after which Lee felt a warmth permeate his body and soon found himself back in his vehicle, along with 38 minutes of missing time. It is all rather odd to say the least.

    Moving on to 1977 we come to Paciencia, Brazil, where 33-year-old bus driver Antonia La Rubia was allegedly walking to work when he spied a rather strange object shaped like an “enormous wide hat” sitting in a field  Soon after he noticed the mysterious craft, it lashed out with a thin, bright beam of light, which caught La Rubia and whisked him away to a room of pure white. Within this room were various mechanical-looking beings with bright scales and arms like tentacles, as well as egg-shaped bodies and heads adorned with what appeared to be antenna. Instead of legs, the strange creatures reportedly sat upon rigid pedestals of some sort.

    After this initial meeting, the frightened La Rubia claims that he shouted at the creatures, which seemed to have the effect of making them cower in fear. He lost consciousness again, and when he awoke he says that he was now subjected to a series of images projected onto the wall, including various surreal scenes such as a dog being melted and a train entering a tunnel, the meaning of which could not be discerned. At one point during this screening of oddities and grotesqueries one of the robot beings apparently reached out to draw blood from one of La Rubia’s fingers, after which it splashed it across a wall to form a pattern of three circles and an “L” shape. At this point, La Rubia claims he lost consciousness once more, and when he awoke he was purportedly back in his car, vomiting and dizzy from the whole puzzling ordeal.

    In Italy the following year there was the case of Pier Zanfretta, of Italy. On December 6, 1978, Zanfetta was working as a security guard doing his rounds when he apparently saw four bright lights approaching him. He went out to investigate with pistol drawn and saw that the source of the lights were reptilian being standing 10-feet tall, with green, saggy looking skin, heads adorned with spines, and in place of a mouth a strange breathing apparatus. Upon noticing him, these entities purportedly shot out some sort of heat beam, which sent Zanfretta running in terror. He would later be found by another security detail passed out on the ground. When the area was checked there were found to be a series of large footprints imprinted into the ground and scorched branches in the trees, lending some credence to the dramatic story the witness would weave.

    Zanfretta would go on to outline several more encounters with the lizard-like beings, in which he would be brought aboard their spacecraft and experimented upon. They would also introduce themselves as beings from the planet “Teetonia.” During his last visitation in December of 1980, the aliens supposedly brought him to a mothership fashioned of a crystalline substance and shown aliens resembling frogs which were being held captive in tube-like structures and which the reptile aliens claimed were an enemy species. Other captured alien specimens in the menagerie aboard the ship were shown as well, including bird-like creatures, tiny reptilian saurian beasts, and some sort of troglodyte that looked somewhat like “a caveman.”

    These are just some of the weirdest reports of alien encounters I have come across, and there are certainly others as well. What are we to make of such cases? These are creatures that do not fit at all into the traditional reports of UFO occupants, and one wonders just what this could all mean. Are these different species or races? Something from another dimension? Are they shapeshifters that just take whatever form they want, regardless of how outlandish? Or are these just the result of hallucinations, psychosis, hoaxes, tall tales, or just the effects of drugs and alcohol? Whatever the answer to these questions may be, such insanely bizarre reports certainly add color to the already colorful world of close encounters, and hint that this is a phenomenon that is perhaps even stranger and more inscrutable than anyone can guess.

    Will truth about aliens soon be known? UFO sightings TRIPLE in just 16 years

    UFOs-Triple-802243.jpg
    THE number of reported UFO sightings across the United States has more than tripled since 2001, it has emerged.

    The statistics are compiled in a new book written using the databases of two of the world's biggest organisations dedicated to logging UFO and alien reportings and encounters across the globe.

    UFO Sightings Desk Reference,” written by Cheryl Costa, 65, and wife, Linda Miller Costa, 62, from Syracuse, New York, used 121,036 eyewitness accounts across the states recorded separately by the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) and the National UFO Reporting Center (NUFORC) between 2001 and 2015 to chart the increase.
    The book looks at the timing and location of incidents and types of UFOs seen which include flying circles, spheres, triangles, discs, ovals, and cigars.
    According to Cheryl, a former military technician and aerospace analyst, and Linda, a librarian at Le Moyne College and a former librarian at the National Academy of Sciences, NASA and the Environmental Protection Agency, MUFON and NUFORC decided most sightings were explainable, but a small amount can still not be explained.
    The key findings from the book were that overall numbers of UFO sightings more than tripled by 2015, from their average levels in 2001.

    Methane May Explain How Ancient Mars Had Liquid Water

    MysteryScience

    Harvard scientists have suggested that methane on ancient Mars may explain why it was once warm enough to support liquid water on its surface. The findings are published in Geophysical Research Letters.

    What made Mars warmer in its history is a bit of a mystery. Previous theories have leaned towards carbon dioxide, which, as we know from Earth, is a decent greenhouse gas. But even though CO2 makes up 95 percent of the thin Martian atmosphere today, it can’t account for a much thicker atmosphere necessary to support significantly warmer temperatures in the past.

    So, the team modeled how methane might behave in the atmosphere of Mars billions of years ago, when the Sun was 30 percent fainter than it is today (known as the faint young Sun paradox). Various geological processes are thought to have been releasing much more methane into the atmosphere back then than today.

    This methane would have been slowly converted to hydrogen and other gases, a process that is sort of happening on Saturn’s moon Titan today. When the effects of methane, hydrogen, and carbon dioxide were combined, the team found they did a better job at warming early Mars than carbon dioxide alone by trapping incoming solar radiation.

    “This research shows that the warming effects of both methane and hydrogen have been underestimated by a significant amount,” said Robin Wordsworth from the Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) in a statement.

    In 1977, the late astronomer Carl Sagan suggested Mars could have been warmed by hydrogen in its past. But this is the first time we’ve got a good estimate of the effect it might have had, alongside methane.

    And we might get a better insight into methane on Mars soon, too. ESA’s Trace Gas Orbiter (TGO) is currently in orbit around the Red Planet, with the goal of working out where the methane in the Martian atmosphere is coming from. And this may have implications for life existing on other planets.

    “Early Mars is unique in the sense that it’s the one planetary environment, outside Earth, where we can say with confidence that there were at least episodic periods where life could have flourished,” said Wordsworth. “If we understand how early Mars operated, it could tell us something about the potential for finding life on other planets outside the Solar System.”

    50 Years Ago, a Small Town Ohio Policeman Chased a Flying Saucer Into Pennsylvania… And It Ruined His Life

    AliensThe Unexplained

    We met at Mike’s Place, the greasy spoon near Kent State with the X-Wing parked out front. It seemed appropriate – it was fifty years ago, this week, that James Evans’ father chased some kind of spacecraft into Pennsylvania. They seated us inside the converted school bus near the back of the place. He ordered biscuits and gravy and told me about what his old man saw, back in 1966.

    “He didn’t like to talk about it,” James said. “And when he would, he always said, ‘I wished I’d never seen it.’”

    James Evans, Dale Spaur’s son

    Dale Spaur was a deputy Sheriff for Portage County in 1966. Big dude – 6’7”. Wicked sense of humor. Former gunner on a B-51 in the Korean War. He was known on the force for having a bit of a lead foot, reprimanded for taking turns too fast in his cruiser on Main Street in Ravenna. He worked the night shift with his partner, Wilbur Neff, known as “Barney” to friends. Spaur was a good cop with a good family – a wife and two boys at home. But everything changed the morning of April 17, 1966.

    Spaur and Neff were called out to an abandoned vehicle on the side of State Route

    224, near the town of Atwater, at about 5 a.m. It was an isolated stretch of country road, lined with trees. 

    Dale Spaur

    They got out of their cruiser to investigate and that’s when Spaur spotted a glowing craft rising out of the woods. It reached treetop level and then began to move toward them, according to an article that appeared in the Record-Courier the following day. It was shaped sort of like an ice cream cone tipped on its side, a little pointed end sticking up in the back, and it made a sound like “an over-loaded transformer.” When it came close, they could feel the heat baking off of it. Slowly, it started east, down 224.

    The two deputies returned to their cruiser and radioed in to dispatch. The sergeant on duty told them to follow it. The chase was on.

    The faster Spaur pursued in his cruiser, the faster the object accelerated. Soon they were speeding east down old Route 14 into the rising sun, the odometer edging past 100 mph. Occasionally they’d have to stop for lights or traffic, though, and when they did the craft slowed down, too, like it was playing a game of “cat-and-mouse,” Spaur would later explain.

    Along the way, Spaur and Neff were joined by East Palestine police officer, Wayne Huston, who followed in his own car. They chased the UFO all the way into Pennsylvania, where Spaur was finally forced to stop for gas. Another cop – Frank Panzanella – was already waiting at the service station. The four officers watched the UFO dart straight up into the sky and disappear.

    source86miles

    By the time Spaur made it home, the local newspapers had the story.  The national news picked it up and within three days, they were getting calls from Japan. At the station, Spaur and Neff were ridiculed. Neff took it in stride but it really got to Spaur, who lost twenty pounds from the stress of it all. Then men from Project Blue Book – the military’s Cold War UFO-investigation department – arrived. After interviewing everyone, they determined that the object the four police officers saw that morning was the planet Venus refracted through fog.

    By all accounts, Spaur suffered an emotional breakdown after this. Within six months, he’d lost his job. His wife left with the children. In October, a Plain Dealer reporter found him living out of a motel, subsisting on peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. “Thirty-four years old and what do I have? Nothing,” he said. “Who knows me? To everyone, I’m Dale Spaur, the nut who chased a flying saucer.”

    James didn’t know who his real father was until he was thirteen – after the divorce, his mother remarried and James was adopted by his stepfather. He was watching Good Morning America with his older brother, Dale Jr., when a tall man was invited on the program to talk about flying saucers.

    “My mother came in and said, ‘That’s your dad.’” The boys wanted to meet him so Daneise called the television station and the show’s producers passed along her message. Two weeks later, Dale Spaur pulled into the driveway in a big pickup truck. “I remember watching him get out,” said James. “It was like he unfolded out of the truck when he stepped out, he was so big.” During his visit, he told his boys about his adventures since leaving Portage County.

    Spaur

    It had taken time, but Spaur had finally gotten his life back together. Not long after that reporter found him at the motel, Dale moved to West Virginia, where he worked in the mines. He had a terrible accident there, falling seventy feet down a shaft, breaking his back. He lay in a coma in the hospital for several days, eyes wide open but completely out of it. “A nurse was supposed to sit with him the whole time,” said James. “But she only lasted a couple hours. I guess she came running out of the room, screaming, ‘This man is possessed by an alien!’”

    When he recovered, Spaur moved back to Ohio and settled in Rocky River. He remarried, opened a bar called the Avenue at West 65th and Detroit Road in Cleveland, and on rare occasions told stories about the UFO he called “Floyd,” which he claimed visited him sometimes when nobody else was around.

    Later, he did a little consulting for Stephen Spielberg’s movie, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, but walked off set in a huff after he found out the main character was not a cop, said James. The film opens with a police officer chasing a UFO shaped kind of like an ice cream cone on its side.

    Spaur died on April 4th, 1983, never recovering from severe pneumonia after catching the flu. James remembers an endless stream of people he’d never seen before at his father’s funeral. He never knew his father had so many friends.
    “I look up and five Eskimos are standing there. Where did they come from? How did they know my father?”

    I asked James what he thinks after all these years. What did his father see in the skies above Portage County fifty years ago?

    extra-terrestrial

    “He believed what he saw was extra-terrestrial,” said James. “I believe him. Nothing we made could fly like that. In Pennsylvania, it hovered over his car. He could feel the heat coming off it. Then it went straight up and disappeared. Poof. Gone! And remember, my father served in the Air Force. You couldn’t put a bird up there he doesn’t recognize.”

    If there’s definitive proof, the military has it. Spaur and Neff kept a camera in the cruiser. They took dozens of photographs. But when Blue Book came to town, the G-men confiscated the negatives. They have never been released.

    Did Fox News catch a UFO buzzing the U.S. Capital?

    A video was submitted to a UFO investigation organization showing something zipping in front of the camera during a shot of the U.S. capital building on Fox News.

    The video was submitted earlier today to the Mutual UFO Network’s (MUFON) UFO reporting database. The witness did not have much to say. The report simply says, verbatim: “It flew infront of the capital building while I was watching Fox News.”

    video and a screenshot from the video were also included. The witness did indicate the sighting took place in Rolling Meadows, Illinois, presumably the city where the witness lives.

    In the video, the object appears to be cylindrical and shiny. It moves quickly and steadily from the bottom left of the screen to the upper right. The shape of the object might not indicate the true shape and size of whatever passed in from of the camera. The object was likely close to the camera, making it seem very large. Since it was moving so quickly, the object’s shape could also appear more elongated than it actually is.

    Closeup of object in video.

    Closeup of object in video.

    In many cases such as this, birds and bugs are mistaken for something more mysterious. Motion blur cause the object to appear elongated and large, like a giant flying saucer. However, often in those cases wings flapping cause the object to look like it has ridges or multiple appendages. That effect cannot be seen in this video. I uploaded a version of the video slowed down to 10%, seen above.

    So what is it? I dunno. I suppose it could also be a hoax or maybe a yellow frisbee. Take a look at the video yourself and let us know what you think.

    On the modern battlefield, it appears drones are here to stay — and the latest development may see them bearing arms far more precise than a bomb or grenade.

    Duke Robotics, a private company that specializes in military technology, announced the TIKAD last week, an eight-rotor drone platform capable of carrying and shooting infantry small arms. The TIKAD is one of the small drones to carry direct-fire weaponry like rifles and grenade launchers. Although the company appears to be in the first stages of development, it represents a new force on the battlefields of the future.

    Smaller military drones, like the U.S. military’s fixed-wing RQ-11 Raven, are usually used for observation, not direct combat (with the exception of small, kamikaze drones). While guerrilla forces in Syria, Iraq, Ukraine, and other battlefields have utilized commercial quadcopter drones to drop bombs and spy on enemy positions, firing a projectile weapon like a gun from a small airborne platform is incredibly difficult. The recoil of a typical infantry rifle would heavily distort any shot the drone could take, which the TIKAD claims to solve with a complicated rig that it claims “takes the full force of the weapon’s recoil” and readjusts its aim to fire again.

    Duke says it has already supplied an early version of the system to the Israeli military, which used it in combat, according to Defense One. They also report the Israeli military has agreed to purchase several TIKAD units.

    Duke Robotics was founded by Lt. Col. Raziel “Razi” Atuar, a 20-year veteran of the Israeli military and a reservist in the Israeli Special Forces, who told Defense One he wanted the flying weapons system to address the challenges of precision targets in a dense, urban battlefield. For instance, a larger drone, helicopter, or artillery system can take out hostile forces on top of a building but usually not without significant destructive force.

    “You have small groups [of adversaries] working within crowded civilian areas using civilians as shields,” Atuar told Defense One. “But you have to go in. Even to just get a couple of guys with a mortar, you have to send in a battalion and you lose guys. People get hurt. The operational challenge, it bothered us.”

    The company’s promotional video — it’s still openly trying to attract investors — features a few shots of a weapon firing from the platform. It’s clear it still has a lot to address to make it a viable weapon (accurate sustained fire at range is important, the video does not show that), however.

    Is This The Terminator? New Robot Has Self-Healing Powers

    “In this research, we propose to construct soft robotics entirely out of self-healing elastomers. On the basis of healing capacities found in nature, these polymers are given the ability to heal microscopic and macroscopic damage.”

    Robots can now regenerate themselves

    Robots can now regenerate themselves using soft materials

    That doesn’t sound so bad … unless you add the following three words:

    I’ll be back.”

    Scientists at the Brije Universiteit Brussel in Belgium have invented robots with self-healing appendages that can “recover” after being stabbed, cut, smashed, shot, blown to bot bits or anything else its human overlords can do to it. OK, stabbed and cut – yes. The rest? Those capabilities aren’t available … yet.

    Image result for Is This The Terminator? New Robot Has Self-Healing Powers

    The process, described in the current edition of the Science Robotics Journal , is surprisingly simple. The team built robotic arms and grippers covered with soft rubbery polymers. When bumped, bruised or dented, the polymers bounce back to their original shapes on their own almost immediately. When cut or gouged, no bandage is needed to stop any bleeding or polymer leakage and the robot doesn’t require a painkiller or workmen’s compensation. All it needs is a little heat and a little time. According to the study, the material will close and seal after just 40 minutes at 80 degrees C (176 degrees F) and will return to full strength and flexibility after 24 hours at 25 degrees C (77 degrees F).

    (credit: Bram Vanderborght )

    This seemingly slow but miraculous healing depends on the soft polymer’s network of cross links that allow the heat-induced process known as the Diels-Alder reaction to take place. According to professor and researcher Bram Vanderborght of VUB in an interview with Wired UK, the heat causes the cross link molecules to break, creating mobility that allows them to realign and, when the heat is removed, close the gaps, heal the ‘flesh’ and completely repair the damage.

    Realistic damage could be healed completely without leaving any weak spot. The prototypes were able to fully resume their tasks.”

    If you just imagined a robot looking at a human holding a blowtorch to its severed finger and yelling, “Come on! Hurry up! I’ve got work to do!”, you’re not far off. Vanderborght already sees applications for the self-healing robots with the soft polymer hands in the grocery industry — for picking up delicate items – and on factory floors where the machines that smash human thumbs and cut off fingers will not be held liable when doing the same thing to a robot’s self-healing hand.

    Will the robot sneer at the hurtful factory machine and snarl, “I’ll be back” Only time will tell.

    HAWKING: 'THERE ARE ASPECTS OF REALITY BEYOND THE CAPACITY OF HUMAN BRAINS.'

    Extraterrestrials are out there for sure, Hawking says, but he added that it is "probably in our best interests to avoid any contact rather than seeking them out." In a recently released documentary series, he reveals his latest thinking on some of the universe’s greatest mysteries.

    In the new series aired on the Discovery Channel, Stephen Hawking made the following conclusion:

    "A few life forms could be intelligent and pose a threat. Contact with such a species could be devastating for humanity, with aliens raiding our planet for resources and then moving on."  

    HE GOES ON TO SAY:

    We only have to look at ourselves to see how intelligent life might develop into something we wouldn’t want to meet. I imagine they might exist in massive ships, having used up all the resources from their home planet,” Hawking says. “Such advanced aliens would perhaps become nomads, looking to conquer and colonize whatever planets they can reach.” 

    HAWKING CONTINUES:

    If aliens ever visit us, I think the outcome would be much as when Christopher Columbus first landed in America, which didn’t turn out very well for the Native Americans,” he concluded.

    Recently, another popular astronomer, Lord Rees, issued the following warning about alien life for humanity in a lecture.

    I suspect there could be life and intelligence out there in forms we can’t conceive,” he said. “Just as a chimpanzee can’t understand quantum theory, it could be there are aspects of reality that are beyond the capacity of our own brains.”

    UFO HUNTERS SPOT 'WEIRD ORBS' IN THE BLUEHILL SKIES NEAR BOSTON

    UFO hunters took a video of a mysterious objects glowing in the sky while they were lost in Bluehills near Boston.

    According to reports three young hikers set off looking for UFOs on BlueHill reservation area in Boston.They were later lost in the woods and had to be rescued. Ramona DeFranco,18 of Plymouth one of the hiker said their harrowing night in the forest paid off when they spotted several UFO's in the sky during their expedition, she saw 2 UFO's in the Sky they have never seen before in night sky at this time of the year

    "well, we saw these two ships that had these bright spotlights and then we saw a weird orb that looks sort of a beacon in the sky," she told reporters

    She showed the reporter a photo of mysterious objects she said had been taken with her smart phone. The UFO's were reported to the National UFO Reporting Center [NUFORC] and remains unexplained.

    Infinite Solar Power Technology Could Completely Change Our Future

     
    Land Art Generator Initiative
    IN BRIEF
    • According to an energy expert, the proliferation of solar energy is going to allow for cheap and effectively infinite energy, with prices plummeting to as little as a penny per kW.
    • Solar energy is slowly being integrated into major infrastructure projects, which will only help speed it along the path to energy dominance.

    THE SUN GOES UP, AND OIL GOES DOWN

    Last 2016, solar power saw a resurgence — from cheaper solar panels to innovative roofing for houses and cars, to solar powered roads, and even to powering an entire island. It seems we have entered a new age in solar energy. Well, it doesn’t end there. In the years to come, we may see the rise of solar power, according to Thierry Lepercq, French energy company Engie SA’s head of research, technology, and innovation.

    “The promise of quasi-infinite and free energy is here,” Lepercq declares, in an interview with Bloomberg. His arguments aren’t based on any environmental concern. Rather, he takes the perspective of price.

    “Solar, battery storage, electrical and hydrogen vehicles, and connected devices are in a ‘J’ curve,” Lepercq said. “Hydrogen is the missing link in a 100 percent renewable-energy system, but technological bricks already exist.” Lepercq believes that the price of solar power will probably fall below $10 per megawatt-hour (roughly 1¢/kWh) in the world’s sunniest places.

    As a consequence of the rise of renewables, oil prices are expected to plummet. “Even if oil demand continues to climb until 2025, its price could drop to $10 if markets anticipate a significant fall in demand,” he said.

    “As carmakers offer more electrical vehicles with a range exceeding 500 kilometers, charging stations being progressively deployed and more cities banning gasoline and diesel cars, a shift will progressively take place,” Lepercq added.

    Indeed, gone are the days when people viewed renewable energy sources as too expensive. Instead, we are moving away from conventional coal-based sources, which could even be more expensive in the future.

    SOLAR POWER SHINES

    Lepercq isn’t alone in seeing the price potential of renewables, particularly solar energy. The World Economic Forum (WEF) recently published a report showing how solar power now costs cheaper than fossil fuels.

    [R]enewable energy technology, especially solar and wind, has made exponential gains in efficiency in recent years, enough to achieve economic competitiveness and, in an increasing number of cases, grid parity. For instance, the unsubsidized, levellized cost of electricity (LCOE) for utility scale solar photovoltaic, which was highly uncompetitive only five years ago, has declined at a 20% compounded annual rate, making it not only viable but also more attractive than coal in a wide range of countries.

    This is all because, as mentioned above, we have seen an increased use of solar energy. Innovations thrived. Nations and private corporations were both in on it, too. We are seeing the construction of large-scale solar energy infrastructure.

    We now have a farm that uses seawater and solar power to grow crops, we’ve built the largest solar desalination plant, and we’ve even managed to have supercomputers that run on solar power. And the ways that solar power is being used will only get better in the next couple of years.

    Indeed, quasi-infinite and free energy is well on its way.

    UFO Seen at US Capitol 65 Years After Famous DC UFO Incident

    Are extraterrestrials watching what’s going on in Washington these days? It would be nice to know that someone or something is and perhaps that’s why some people believe they saw a UFO buzz past the US Capitol Building on a Fox News broadcast. Has this ever happened before? Yes! It turns out this year is the 65th anniversary of the 1952 UFO sighting that has come to be known as the Washington National Airport Sightings, the Invasion of Washington or the Washington Flap. Flap? Sounds like these sightings might be related. Let’s find out.

    The 2017 Washington Flap II started on August 14 when a story about college interns on Capitol Hill showed a clip of the US Capitol Building that appeared to include a yellow saucer-shaped UFO flying in front of it. The blurry object appears to be much closer to the camera than to the Capitol, which prompted speculation that it’s a plastic flying disc (you know the brand), a flying creature or a CGI graphic. Are people REALLY tossing discs that close to Capitol security guards these days? And if it’s CGI, it’s pretty poor. Since there were no reports of any unknown aircraft breaching DC airspace on August 14 (Would we really hear about them? Definitely.) and the witness is one of the thousands of anonymous sources in DC, that’s all we have on this sighting. For now, you’ll have listen very hard to hear any flapping.

    On the other hand, the flapping in 1952 was loud and clear.

    Never before or after did Project Blue Book and the Air Force undergo such a tidal wave of (UFO) reports.”

    Aerospace historian for the Smithsonian Institution and UFO skeptic Curtis Peebles sets the stage for the 1952 sightings – yes, there were more than one. At 11:40 p.m. on July 19, 1952, Washington National Airport (now known as Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport) air traffic controller Edward Nugent saw seven objects on his radar 15 miles (24 km) south-southwest of the city and notified his superior, Harry Barnes, who watched them with him. Upon checking, Nugent found that other controllers in the control tower and controllers at nearby Andrews Air Force Base also saw the UFOs, which had increased in number and were traveling randomly across the sky at an estimated 130 miles per hour. The objects vanished when two Air Force jets arrived and returned again after the jets left to refuel.

    One week later on July 26, UFOs were spotted by a stewardess and a captain on a flight into Washington National Airport. The strange lights were seen by other pilots in the nearby airspace and an officer at Andrews Air Force Base.

    Both incidents made national news and President Harry Truman demanded explanations. In what was called the largest Pentagon press conference since World War II, Air Force Major Generals John Samford and Roger Ramsey said the UFOs were “misidentified aerial phenomena” like stars or meteors and the blips on radar screens were caused by temperature inversions. A 1969 scientific report released by the Air Force concluded that a temperature inversion strong enough to create the radar blips was meteorologically impossible, but the theory has joined swamp gas and weather balloons in the annals of non-alien UFO explanations.

    It doesn’t look like the 2017 Washington Invasion was a temperature inversion. Was it a toy disc, a bird or a bug? Possibly. CGI? Maybe. Will it go down in history like the 1952 Flap? Highly unlikely.

    And whatever happened to those UFOs seen before and afterthe inauguration? Shouldn’t someone find out why those aliens haven’t done anything for us yet?

    Or maybe they have.

    Clouds on 'Failed Stars' Resemble Those on Neptune

    Researchers have found Neptune-like bands of clouds circling the surface of a brown dwarf, an object in between the size of a planet and a star.

    For the first time, scientists have seen bands of clouds drifting across the skies of failed stars known as brown dwarfs.

    This work could help scientists analyze Earth-like planets someday, the new study's researchers said.

    In the past 25 years or so, astronomers have confirmed the existence of more than 3,500 exoplanets, or planets outside Earth's solar system. Scientists have also detected numerous so-called brown dwarfs, objects that are about 13 to 90 times the mass of Jupiter — too big to be planets, but not quite big enough to be true stars. Researchers sometimes call brown dwarfs "failed stars," because nuclear fusion never ignited in their cores. [Brown Dwarf Photos: Failed Stars and Stellar Misfits Revealed]

    Scientists have previously detected evidence of clouds on exoplanets and brown dwarfs. However, this is the first time that cloud bands have been spotted on one of those objects, study team members said. 

    Previous work suggested that brown dwarfs have much in common with giant exoplanets in terms of size, temperature and composition. As such, study lead author Daniel Apai, who is an astrophysicist and planetary scientist at the University of Arizona in Tucson, and his colleagues investigated brown dwarfs to learn more about giant exoplanets.

    The fact that many brown dwarfs are located away from stars makes them easier for astronomers to examine than many giant exoplanets, Apai told Space.com. In contrast, giant exoplanets are typically obscured partly by the brightness of their stars, he added.

    In the past five years, a number of studies have found that the infrared light from many brown dwarfs could vary in unusual ways over time. However, until now, there was no convincing explanation for this phenomenon.

    To help solve this mystery, Apai and his colleagues analyzed data from NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope. They focused on the way the infrared brightness of three brown dwarfs changed over time as the objects completed a total of 192 rotations over the course of 1.5 years. 

    The observations of these brown dwarfs helped "derive crude maps for how their clouds are distributed and how they evolve," Apai said.

    The scientists discovered rotating bands of clouds in the atmospheres of these brown dwarfs that are broadly similar to bands of clouds seen on Neptune. As the bands on the brown dwarfs rotated, slight differences in the speeds of the bands generated a pattern of beats in their infrared light, explaining the mystery regarding their shifting brightness, Apai said.

    "This is the first time that the presence of bands is shown in brown dwarfs," Apai said. He added that scientists have not yet reported any evidence for bands of clouds in exoplanets.

    Although the researchers looked at only three brown dwarfs, "the fact that all three brown dwarfs behaved the same way suggests that what we see should be a common, perhaps general behavior," Apai said. "What we learn from brown dwarfs should be applicable to the majority of the gas giant exoplanets, too."

    In the future, the next major NASA space telescope, the James Webb Space Telescope, will help researchers analyze brown dwarfs and exoplanets in even greater detail, Apai said."The same technique we used for brown dwarfs now could be used to build crude maps of Earth-like planets, once we have the right telescopes, and NASA is exploring some designs that could do that in the future," he added.

    The scientists detailed their findings in the Aug. 18 issue of the journal Science.
