    UFO'S - MET HET LAATSTE NIEUWS OVER UFO'S BOVEN BELGIË EN IN ANDERE LANDEN...
    UFO's in België en de rest van de wereld
    In België heb je vooral BUFON of het Belgisch UFO-Netwerk, dat zich met UFO's bezighoudt. BEZOEK DUS ZEKER VOOR ALLE OBJECTIEVE INFORMATIE ww.ufo.be. Verder heb je ook het Belgisch-Ufo-meldpunt en Caelestia, die prachtig, doch ZEER kritisch werk leveren, ja soms zelfs héél sceptisch... Voor Nederland kan je de mooie site www.ufowijzer.nl bezoeken van Paul Harmans. Een mooie site met veel informatie en artikels. MUFON of het Mutual UFO Network Inc is een Amerikaanse UFO-vereniging met afdelingen in alle USA-staten en diverse landen. MUFON's mission is the analytical and scientific investigation of the UFO- Phenomenon for the benefit of humanity... Je kan ook hun site bekijken onder www.mufon.com. Ze geven een maandeliiks tijdschrift uit, namelijk The MUFON UFO-Journal. Since 02/01/2013 is Pieter not only president (=voorzitter) of BUFON, but also National Director MUFON / Flanders and the Netherlands. We work together with the French MUFON Reseau MUFON/EUROP.

    Ze vlogen razendsnel voorbij! Zwerm onbekende objecten vastgelegd boven Amsterdam tijdens maansverduistering

    Tijdens de maansverduistering zijn boven Amsterdam een aantal onverklaarbare blauwe lichten in de lucht gezien. Uit verschillende delen van de stad kwamen meldingen binnen.

    “Rond half 11 ’s avonds zag ik een grote formatie lichten, soort van sterren, snel door de lucht vliegen,” zei Tim, die op dat moment in Amsterdam-Oost naar de bloedmaan stond te kijken.

    “Het was een heel indrukwekkend verschijnsel wat moeilijk te verklaren was,” voegde hij toe.

    Te snel

    “Het konden geen wensballonnen zijn omdat ze te snel bewogen,” aldus Tim. “Ze veranderden tijdens de vlucht van formatie.”

    Op de website van UFO Meldpunt Nederland maakte hij melding van de lichten, waarna hij reacties kreeg van andere Amsterdammers die hetzelfde hadden gezien.

    “Ik zag ze ook in Noord,” schreef Zeola. “Ik rende naar binnen om mijn kind te halen en die zag ze ook. Ze vlogen razendsnel!”

    Ik dacht dat ik gek werd

    “Ook gezien, ik dacht dat ik gek werd,” reageerde Lisa. “Ik heb ook nooit eerder op een site als deze gezeten. Ik was zo gefrustreerd dat ik [hierover] niks las op het internet. Blij dat ik niet de enige ben!”

    Sterrenkundige Lucas Ellerbroek dacht dat het satellieten waren, terwijl iemand anders erop wees dat bij een trouwerij ballonnen met lichtjes waren opgelaten.

    Voor nu blijven de objecten ongeïdentificeerd.

    Most Russians believe NASA’s lunar missions were fake
    Over a half of all Russians believe that US astronauts have never been on the Moon and that the US authorities and NASA covered up this fact by forging proof of moon landings, a new poll shows.

    In the recent survey titled “Science and society: authority and trust” experts of the Russian state-run public opinion research center VTSIOM wrote that 57 percent of Russians currently think that the US claims of successful manned Moon missions are lies and that the documented proof of these missions was forged. Only 24 percent of respondents said that they believed that the manned Moon missions were real.

    Researchers also specified that 65 percent of those who think that the US authorities are lying about the moon landings have secondary education.

    However, Russians are not only suspicious about the NASA moon missions. 59 percent of the poll participants share the opinion that “scientists conceal the truth from common people.” Even among Russians with higher education the proportion was extremely high – at 45 percent.

    When facing the question if the scientists possessed some “objective knowledge” about the reality the Russian public again split into almost equal parts: 42 percent agreed that this was true while 41 percent said that in their opinion the scientists who claimed this weren’t telling the truth, albeit in good faith.

    In the same poll, three percent of Russians said that they personally supported the flat Earth theory. 93 percent said that they shared the traditional opinion of Earth being a ball-shaped planet and four percent found it too difficult to answer the question.

    As far as space aliens are concerned, 45 percent of the poll participants said that they believed in the existence of extraterrestrial civilizations and 42 percent think that aliens either don’t exist or for some reason prefer not to visit Earth and contact humans. 18 percent of respondents said that in their opinion the authorities were hiding proof of alien visits from the general public.

    Russen geloven niet dat we op de maan zijn geweest. Bekijk de verrassende uitkomsten van deze peiling

    Meer dan de helft van de Russen is van mening dat Amerikaanse astronauten nooit op de maan zijn geweest en dat de Amerikaanse overheid en de NASA de maanlandingen in scène hebben gezet. Dat blijkt uit een nieuwe peiling.

    Uit onderzoek van de Russische opiniepeiler VTsIOM blijkt dat 57 procent van de Russen denkt dat de succesvolle Amerikaanse maanmissies berusten op leugens en dat het bewijs voor deze missies is vervalst.

    Minder dan een kwart (24 procent) gelooft dat we echt op de maan zijn geland.

    Waarheid verborgen houden

    De Russische bevolking is niet alleen sceptisch over de maanmissies. Bijna twee derde (59 procent) stelt dat ‘wetenschappers de waarheid verborgen houden voor het volk’.

    Opvallend is dat ook bijna de helft (45 procent) van de hoogopgeleiden deze mening is toegedaan.

    Op de vraag of wetenschappers objectieve kennis hebben over de realiteit, antwoordde 41 procent ontkennend. Dit deel zei dat de wetenschappers niet de waarheid vertellen.

    Buitenaardse beschavingen

    Drie procent van de Russen gelooft in de platte aarde-theorie, terwijl 93 procent zei dat aarde bolvormig is.

    Er werden ook vragen gesteld over ruimtewezens. Bijna de helft van de ondervraagden (45 procent) zei te geloven in het bestaan van buitenaardse beschavingen.

    Bewijs voor buitenaards bezoek

    42 procent zei te denken dat aliens niet bestaan of om de één of andere reden geen contact willen maken met mensen of de aarde niet willen bezoeken.

    Bijna een vijfde (18 procent) zei dat de overheid bewijs voor buitenaards bezoek achterhoudt voor de bevolking.

    Physicists Claim The Great Pyramid of Giza Focuses Electromagnetic Energy

    The Great Pyramid of Giza remains one of the world’s most enduring sources of mystery. For thousands of years, the Great Pyramid has stood in the desert of what is now El Giza, Egypt to serve as a monument to the ingenuity and technical prowess of its builders. After its construction, the Great Pyramid bore the distinction of the world’s tallest man-made structure for close to 4,000 years. Not bad for an oversized mortuary.

    One of the reasons the pyramids remain mysterious is the fact that there is still significant disagreement over how the pyramids could have been constructed with the materials and methods available at the time. Aside from the mystery over how the pyramids at Giza were built, there is the longstanding suspicion that the pyramids might have some unknown purpose or function which has been lost to history. Hidden structures and voids continue to be discovered within the pyramids, leading some to speculate that perhaps the pyramids still might contain more than meets the eye despite the countless research projects and excavations conducted on them over the years.

    To build on that speculation, a new study conducted by an international team of physicists has concluded that the chambers inside the Great Pyramid might actually be capable of capturing and focusing electromagnetic energy. According to the authors, their research has “revealed that the Pyramid’s chambers can collect and concentrate electromagnetic energy for the both surrounding conditions” and “shown that basically the Pyramid scatters the electromagnetic waves and focuses them.” The study has been published in the Journal of Applied Physics.

    While this study sounds like it might hint at further high strangeness surrounding the ancient Egyptians, researchers found that only electromagnetic radiation within a specific, narrow wavelength has the ability to resonate within the Pyramid. Furthermore, this discovery is purely theoretical, having been discovered through the use of advanced simulations. As scientific supervisor and coordinator of the research Dr. Andrey Evlyukhin points out in a press release, “due to the lack of information about the physical properties of the pyramid, we had to use some assumptions.” Still, he notes that “with these assumptions made, we obtained interesting results that can find important practical applications.”

    It remains unknown if the ancient Egyptians who built the Great Pyramid were aware of this unique feature – or even if they knew what electromagnetic radiation was at all. While theories alleging the ancient Egyptians possessed technology or scientific knowledge far more advanced than what we know are often thrown around, we’ve yet to discover any concrete evidence supporting such claims. Could it be possible that ancient cultures possessed technology as advanced or even more advanced than our own? Who knows what we might find in the ground if we dig deep enough.

    All of this has happened before. All of this will happen again.

    Are We Being Supernaturally “Fed” On?

    The world around us is not as it appears to be. In fact, far from it. As we go about our daily business, working, and living our lives, behind the scenes something dark and dangerous is taking place. And it has been going on since the dawn of civilization. Most people remain oblivious to the truth and don’t even realize it. Now and again, however, someone will stumble upon the startling reality that, potentially, affects and dictates the lives of just about all of us. What am I talking about?

    Nothing less than a monstrous collection of supernatural entities that terrify and torment us, and have done so for millennia. They do far more than that, however: they feed upon us. Like bloated, paranormal leeches, they suck us dry as they seek to fuel themselves with our psychic energy, high states of emotion, sexual energy, and the human life-force. They hate and despise us, but, paradoxically, they cannot live without us.

    Have you ever woken up, drained and utterly exhausted, from a terrifying nightmare that didn’t seem like just another, regular dream? If the answer is “Yes,” then you may have been “fed” upon by these infernal things.  When we sleep, we are at our most vulnerable. And that’s exactly how they want us. A dream is not always a dream, as strange as that might sound. Sometimes it’s an indication that, as you sleep, and as your guard is down, these voraciously hungry monsters are, in essence, eating you.

    Among these creatures are the Shadow People: hostile things that typically manifest between 1:00 A.M. and 4:00 A.M. and who have the ability paralyze us and drain our bodies of energy in much the same way that the vampires of folklore would drain people of blood. In fact, and as the book shows, such distorted tales of vampirism almost certainly had their origins in the worlds, and actions, of these multi-dimensional things.

    In a paper prepared for me a few years ago, Jason Offutt wrote, in part: “Like the Men in Black, the Hat Man has floated in the periphery of our lives for decades, observing our movements, occasionally interacting with us, but always threatening. Charles was 13 years old in 1949 and lived with his mother, brother and grandmother in San Jose, California, when the Hat Man crept into his life. He lay in bed with his brother, talking before they drifted off to sleep, when the window sash moved. ‘A dark figure dressed in a black cloak and wearing a black hat with a wide brim appeared in the window,’ Charles said. ‘No facial features were discernible on this person, but I took it to be a man.’ This Hat Man opened the window and reached through with both hands. ‘I thought he was going to climb in,’ Charles said. ‘At that moment I started yelling my head off.’ As Charles’s young voice pierced the night, the Hat Man closed the window, turned and disappeared from sight. The next morning, Charles saw the window was locked from the inside. ‘I saw something,’ Charles said. ‘What in the hell was it?'”

    Equally dangerous are what can accurately be termed supernatural seducers: dangerous entities that thrive on sexual energy are also part of the equation. A highly-charged, sexual dream may be deliberately initiated by such things, which, over the centuries, have been referred to as Incubus, Succubus, Lilith, and the Old Hag. Also relevant to this angle is the reason why so many supernatural encounters occur at so-called “Lovers Lane” locations. In these cases, voyeurism and sexual emotion lead to feeding. Indeed, at such Lovers Lane’s we can find numerous encounters with the likes off Bigfoot, Mothman, Goat-Men, and aliens.

    Poltergeists – violent entities that can cause chaos in the home and who delight in tormenting us as much as they are energized by us – are also part of the equation, as are thought-forms and Tulpas; creatures created within the human mind and the depths of our imaginations, but which can be externalized and given a strange form of life in the real world. Key to the survival of Tulpas and thought-forms is that we believe in them. The stronger our belief, the greater the ability of the Tulpas to live. In other words, they feed on – and coldly and carefully nurture – our belief-systems.

    Then, there is the Slenderman: a sinister figure which started out as an Internet experiment, but which has mutated drastically in the last few years, to the extent that numerous people report having seen the Slenderman in the real world. It’s a perfect example of a modern day Tulpa / thought-form running wild in our reality. Witnesses describe seeing the scrawny, black-suited figure looming over their beds in the dead of night, extracting energy and dining in a fashion that we don’t even want to think about.

    The Men in Black fall into this category, too: those who have had UFO encounters and who have been visited by the pale-faced ghouls known as the MIB state that while being threatened and intimidated by the Men in Black they have felt cold, clammy, weak, and light-headed. As many of the unfortunate witnesses have stated, it’s as if the MIB are draining them in the same way that a flashlight drains a battery. And, using the same analogy, when the light finally goes out, we do, too. To slightly alter the words of Charles Fort: The stark and terrifying truth is that our planet may well be one big farm. And, for these energy-based entities, we are the cattle.

    Something BIG spotted traveling through Solar System going behind Jupiter!

    A sky watcher has captured an unknown object traveling through our solar system and going behind Jupiter.


    It is difficult to say whether it is a huge alien spacecraft or something else, like a meteor, asteroid or eventually a satellite speeding through our solar system.

    MrMB333 talks about Jupiter but is it really Jupiter or could it be another planet, anyway an interesting footage and if you look closely, it looks like the object has even disturbed the planet.

    S02 E03 Ancient Aliens: Underwater Worlds

    Ancient monuments deep under water. A once-thriving metropolis now half a mile under the sea. Lost cities submerged for thousands of years. All over the world, there are sunken cities.

    There are more than 200 known sunken cities in the Mediterranean alone.  What we’re looking at are the remains of cities at a time when mainstream archaeology tells us there were no cities, uh, anywhere in the world.

    Underwater Worlds

    Are underwater monuments examples of mankind’s earliest civilizations?

    Or is there evidence of skills far beyond that of primitive man? And if so, where did it come from?

    The native legends are very clear that something or someone landed, and then, knowledge, all of a sudden, spread. There are many, many legends with lights coming from under the water.

    You start to get the idea that there’s some kind of ancient alien underwater base Millions of people around the world believe we have been visited in the past by extraterrestrial beings. What if it were true? Did ancient aliens really help to shape our history? If so, what evidence lies deep underwater? Covering more than oceans are a vast and largely unexplored mystery.

    For most of recorded history, mankind could only guess at what lay beneath the ocean’s surface. But new technologies are reaching new depths.

    Researchers around the world are finding the unexpected underwater complexes and sophisticated monuments that defy the conventional historical record.

    There are remains of urban civilizations on parts of the Earth that were exposed on land 10,000 and more years ago.
    Possible.

    Scientific theory suggests that during Earth’s last Ice Age, ocean levels were once much lower than they are today. You have to envisage a world in which there are two-mile-deep ice caps sitting on top of northern Europe and North America, in which are accumulated enormous quantities of water.

    And we know that this water began to melt about 21,000 years ago, and finished melting about 10,000 years ago.

    As a result, rich coastal lands were slowly submerged by rising sea levels.

    Ten million square miles of land was flooded all around the world. That’s roughly the size of Europe and China added together were just rubbed from the record.

    They just disappear from the story.

    And in my opinion, archeology is not doing enough work to investigate those lost and submerged lands.

    While much of the ocean’s floor remains unexplored, for thousands of years, philosophers and scientists have been drawn to one of the greatest mysteries of the sea, the legend of the lost city of Atlantis.

    It’s been said that more books have been written about Atlantis than any other subject.

    But most of what we know comes from the Greek philosopher Plato, who wrote two books about Atlantis, the Timaeus and the Critias.

    Written in 360 BC, Plato described Atlantis as a highly advanced city, ringed by concentric walls, which flourished 9,000 years before his own time.

    There are descriptions of huge palaces for kings.

    It’s stated that Atlantis had huge naval forces, which it used to conquer other parts of the world.
    It was an urban civilization.

    According to the ancient Greek texts, Atlantis was connected with extraterrestrials from the beginning.

    It was founded by the Greek god Poseidon.

    Poseidon can be regarded as an extraterrestrial in the sense of not being of this Earth. Poseidon, one of the extraterrestrials, found a pretty, wonderful, young woman-girl on Earth. And he took this woman-girl, and he impregnated her.

    And to protect his new family, he founded Atlantis.

    According to the legend, after a failed attempt to invade Athens, disaster struck the island. According to Plato, Atlantis was destroyed in a day and a night a cataclysmic destruction that sank the entire island and its capital city.

    Some researchers believe that the Atlantians somehow destroyed themselves.

    An artists illustration of what Atlantis may have looked like.

    According to Plato, Atlantis was located in front of the Pillars of Hercules, a location beyond what some scholars attribute to modern Gibraltar. And to the ancients, as they left the Mediterranean Sea to go into the larger Atlantic Ocean, this was where they went beyond the Pillars of Hercules between Spain and Morocco.

    Across the Atlantic lies the island chain of the Bahamas, just southeast of Florida. Here in 1968, archaeologist J.Manson Valentine believed he found part of Atlantis when he discovered an unusual rock formation off the coast of North Bimini Island.

    It’s only in about 12 to 18 feet of water, so you can, uh, view it easily. At first, scientists thought this was just beach rock, but then several other scientists exploring the Bimini Road noticed that the beach rock was on top of other beach rock, with balancing stones wedged in between.

    And nature doesn’t do that; man does. And they realized this is a harbor, a breakwater for a harbor.

    From the shallow edges of Bimini all the way to the Gulf Stream in 300 feet of water, we have found many fascinating complexities that look like remnants of ancient cities or structures roads, pathways, structures covered in coral.

    Could the Bimini ruins be remnants of Atlantis?

    And if so, could these roads lead to other sites buried under sand and water?

    In the year 2000, while mapping the seafloor off the western coast of Cuba, a research expedition led by Russian-Canadian oceanographer Paulina Zelitsky spotted symmetrical stone structures deep below the water.

    Remarkably, they were over a half mile down. Divers cannot do this kind of, uh, investigation, so we have to use a remote operating vehicle. And this vehicle is equipped with video cameras and manipulators. And it controlled, uh, from the deck of the ship.

    The expedition was also armed with side-scan sonar equipment used to create images of large areas of the sea floor and underwater objects. I was in the control room on board the ship, and we were receiving that image coming from side-scan.

    And this is just one of the many other images that we were obtaining of, the 80, uh, structures made of large stones placed one on top of another.

    An alleged underwater structure just off the coast of Cuba

    Well, what do they end up with?

    It is an image that shows these rectangular 90-degree angles, over and over and over, on very large structures that seemed to have wide avenues.

    The exploration found huge stone blocks in pyramid shapes, others more circular. Most were gigantic, reaching 16 feet in height and weighing several tons.

    30 geometric structures emerged, appearing to be the remains of streets, buildings, tunnels and pyramids, all at a depth of 2,200 feet below the surface of the water.

    We might well have here the evidence of a prehistoric culture that would probably go back tens of thousands of years, and that’s very exciting indeed.

    Using dating techniques based on the presence of nearby volcanic ash, geologists estimated the underwater city sank over 6,000 years ago.

    Could this be, a half mile down, some part of the sunken Atlantis from 9,000, 10,000 yrs ago that Plato talked about? Well, the Atlantis myth is integrally related with the area of the Caribbean and the Bahamas, in particular, Cuba.

    Plato talks about an island empire.

    He’s probably talking about dozens of different islands of different sizes, not just in the western Atlantic, but probably stretching out right into the central Atlantic area.

    Both the Cuban and the Bahaman ruins lie on the western edge of the Bermuda Triangle, an area of ocean covering over 500,000 square miles, known for magnetic anomalies, extraterrestrial sightings and unexplained disappearances of aircraft and ships.

    Could there be a connection between Atlantis and the area known as the Devil’s Triangle?

    On the edge of the Bermuda Triangle, there are underwater ruins of the ancient city of Atlantis, the prehistoric city of Atlantis.

    So, yes, there is a theory that Atlantis lies, not near Greece, but in the Bermuda Triangle. If Plato’s texts are true, then other Greek myths may provide a hint of the true fate of Atlantis.

    One myth tells of the Titan goddess named Asteria, who fell from the sky and became an island.

    In ancient Greece, we have a number of myths which describe islands bronze, gleaming islands that fell from the sky and landed in the water.

    I don’t think that Atlantis, therefore, was an actual stationary, physical island. Atlantis, according to Plato, disappeared in one night with a lot of fire and a lot of smoke.

    See, I don’t think that Atlantis sank. I think Atlantis lifted off. Was Atlantis a safe haven for ancient aliens before the end of Earth’s last Ice Age? And if so, could there be other alien cities submerged deep underwater?

    Yonaguni, Japan.

    This small island is at the westernmost tip of the Japanese archipelago. Scholars believe the first inhabitants migrated here from Southeast Asia during prehistoric times.

    Composite image of the Yonaguni ruins

    In 1987, in nearby waters, dive tour orator Kihachiro Aratake made a shocking discovery. A massive complex of stone formations lay hidden a mere 60 feet beneath the ocean surface.

    Experts call it one of the greatest discoveries in the history of underwater archeology.

    What’s intriguing about the complex at Yonaguni is that there is a whole range of monuments, pretty much side by side, and this, to my eye, looks unmistakably to be the work of human beings, not the random action of the ocean on differential layers of stone.

    There are several reasons why I think this is not a natural formation. Some tools and engraved stones are found at the site.

    Because of these things, there is no doubt that this is made artificially.

    Submerged beneath largest of the underwater formations resemble a massive, five-layered stepped pyramid, the size of two football fields.

    You see unambiguous carvings that clearly are geometric in nature, tons of right angles. We see channels that you can walk through with stairwells at the end that are perfectly rectangular in shape.

    There are places where you find megaliths piled on top of one another to create a tunnel through which you can swim.
    There is a set of megaliths positioned side by side against the side of the cliff. There’s a gigantic human face carved underwater.

    There is a stone that inscribes a big face, about seven meters in height. Our first impression was that it looked a lot like the Moai on Easter Island.

    Then we began to realize that it strongly resembled the sphinx which guarded the pyramids, and we wondered, “Is that the function the face is serving “here?”

    It’s the whole combination of all these structures together which convinced me that we’re looking at a at a ceremonial complex.

    The mystery surrounding the Yonaguni underwater structure is, when did it go underwater? The geological evidence is that it was submerged during the meltdown of the last Ice Age.

    All around the world, whether it is France, India or Japan, there are man-made structures that lie underwater.

    Two ways how our ancestors could have done this. Either they had scuba gear I don’t think so or this stuff was built when the ocean levels were lower, and that was over 14,000 years ago, and 14,000 years ago, according to mainstream archeology, we were just dwelling in caves, hunter-gatherers.

    Could the Yonaguni structures have been built by such primitive people?

    And what evidence exists of the people who inhabited this island?

    Human fossils were found, so I’m sure there were people living on the island, but I’m not sure if they had the technology to create structures or anything like this.

    It’s not so much the question of could the stone have been chipped away and removed. It’s a question of the vision, of the scale of the complex, of thinking in those kinds of terms.

    And we know of no other, uh, Stone Age culture that thought in those kinds of terms, of creating a gigantic, seemingly ceremonial complex.

    If, according to scholars, the ancient Japanese people could not have built this monument, who did?

    And how did it get here?

    The speculation is that extraterrestrials created the Yonaguni monument.

    The engineering is just beyond the capacity of Stone Age civilizations.

    Ancient astronaut theorists also believe the key to the Yonaguni mystery is found in its global positioning.

    Strangely, the complex lies within an area of the Pacific long suspected of extraterrestrial activity.

    It’s called the Dragon’s Triangle.

    Just south of Japan, you have a mysterious area called the Dragon’s Triangle, which is very similar to the Bermuda Triangle, because you have planes that have disappeared from the air, ships that have disappeared from the ocean.

    In fact, Japan had declared this a disaster area. Don’t sail through it. Don’t fly through it.

    Stay the heck away, because if you go in there, terrible things can happen to you.

    In ancient Japan, and even into the relatively modern era, there are stories about the Dragon Sea, in which objects rise out of the water and sail through the air. In ancient Japan, these were winged monsters breathing fire.

    In more modern times, these took on the appearance of actual machines.

    When you compare those descriptions of these devices with the description that Columbus gave of a craft nearing the Bermuda Triangle actually rising out of the water, a light that followed the ship, you realize there’s a similarity in both of these locations to things, objects, that are in the water and rise out of the water and fly through the air.

    But why are the two submerged structures found within the perimeter of these strange regions of the planet where so much unusual activity occurs?

    Is it a coincidence that the Earth’s 25th parallel north cuts through both the Bermuda Triangle and the Dragon’s Triangle?

    They lie on a plane along the same line, and both of them have the same magnetic phenomena, in which compass bearings are lost and instruments go down.

    People wonder if there’s a real, strange UFO connection. If UFO’s and flying saucers do exist, then we should suspect that they could originally come from an ancient super civilization.

    It makes you wonder if flying saucers, UFO’s, whatever you want to call them, actually use the area of the Triangle as their major base, and perhaps are even coming back to the remnants of a civilization that they were familiar with.

    What if the sunken monuments at Yonaguni and near Cuba had alien origins?

    Might they have been used as alien bases?

    And if we believe extraterrestrials functioned on land, could they have also functioned underwater?

    Could there be more evidence lying in the vast Pacific?

    As an island nation, it should come as no mystery that much of Japan’s rich history is tied to the waters of the Pacific Ocean. But although many of Japan’s legends are largely unknown to the West, some are drawing the attention of ancient astronaut theorists.

    One such legend dates back to a beach north of Tokyo. Allegedly, a craft that was quite large in size washed up on the shore in Japan. A strange round ship drifted ashore in this area.

    The woman did not speak any language they could identify. There were written inscriptions inside her craft that they could not identify, and she’s clutching this box that she didn’t want anybody to touch.

    Known as the legend of the Utsuro Bune, or “hollow ship,” the details of the story have puzzled historians for centuries.

    Where, for example, did the mysterious hollow ship come from? Could it have come from the area of the submerged Yonaguni monument? Who was the strange woman? And what were the contents of the box she guarded so carefully?

    Was it a human head? Or was it, as some ancient astronaut theorists believe, a type of brain or other forms of extraterrestrial intelligence?

    If so, could it have been intended as a gift to the early Japanese by an ancient space traveler? There are five different drawings that have survived from completely different regions of Japan. They’re almost identical to modern UFO reports.

    As evidence to support their claims, ancient astronaut theorists point to early Japanese carvings and statuary, each suggesting a variety of extraterrestrial encounters. This is a Dogu figure, and it comes from Japan.

    And even to the untrained eye, you look at this, and it’s as if this being is wearing some type of a suit with a helmet, some goggles, on the back, there are all these weird buckles and circles, you know, straps.

    Very similar to a modern-day space suit.

    In my opinion, this is a likeness of a possible extraterrestrial that visited Earth thousands of years ago.

    A Dogu figurine

    Dogū, Ebisuda Site in Tajiri, Miyagi Prefecture, 1000–400 BC.

    Archaeologists have cataloged the existence of more than 15,000 Dogu figures made during the Jomon period of prehistoric Japan, dating from approximately 14,000 to 300 years B.C.

    But could, as ancient astronaut theorists believe, these strange Dogu figures really be a primitive interpretation of a pressurized space suit or diving apparel?

    The story behind those Dogu figures is very clear, and anyone can go and read translations of the ancient texts that the Dogu, a long time ago, descended from the sky and taught the first Japanese people in various disciplines.

    And the whole Japanese culture, including the kimono, the tea ceremony, the use of wasabi and ginger for eating sushi, the way that they build their architecture, their written language, everything they say came from these visitors, from these gods, from the universe.

    The pictures show beings who look like astronauts. They are dressed like an astronaut. They have the helmet as an astronaut. They have some strange tools in their hands, tools which we do not understand. Now, there is a link.
    The Japanese call it “Dogus.”

    In North America, we have still the Hopi tribe, in Arizona, and the Hopi Indians are still making today kachina dolls. Kachina dolls look similar to the Japanese Dogu figures. Further back, in the Sahara Desert, Africa, we found cave paintings.

    When you see the picture, you see definitely an astronaut suit. No doubt. Absolutely.

    Now, you compare these cave paintings with the kachina dolls of the Hopi, and with the Dogu of Japan. You have one line.

    Do the mysterious Dogu figures provide tangible evidence of extraterrestrial encounters in Japan’s ancient past?

    And does the legend of the Utsuro Bune suggest that the Earth’s oceans may be hiding even more proof of alien contact?

    Perhaps the answer can be found deep in the waters off the coast of India.

    In 2001, researchers from India’s Oceanic Institute detected anomalies on the bottom of the Gulf of Khambhat, seven miles from shore.

    They had been commissioned by the Indian government to do a survey of pollution in the Gulf of Khambhat up in the northwest of India. And they were not expecting to find anything except a mess down there.

    But suddenly, their side-scan sonar started returning images of regular structures. The images revealed an enormous network of stone buildings, now shrouded in mud and sand, and covering a distance of five square miles.

    What we’re looking at in the Gulf of Khambhat are the remains of cities. There’s actually two of them.

    And it turns out that they are positioned on the side of ancient river channels. They look lime cities that have been submerged for a very long time, at a time when mainstream archeology tells us there were no cities anywhere in the world.

    Powerful crosscurrents made it nearly impossible to dive the 170 feet to the bottom. Still, scientists retrieved dozens of artifacts, including wood and pottery shards.

    Some of the dates on some of the human artifacts that were brought up extended as far back as 32,000 years. But the oceanographers concluded that the area had been covered by water about 9,000 years ago.

    So this city had apparently existed from 32,000 to about Mainstream scholars today claim that ancient Indian civilization only goes back 4,000 or 5,000 years. Yet, Hindu scholars themselves say that Hindu civilization is going back, uh, many tens of thousands, even hundreds of thousands of years.

    Might the ruins below the Gulf of Khambhat prove the Hindu scholars, right? Another recent discovery may support their claims.

    The modern city of Dwaraka.

    An artists rendering of a legendary ancient city.

    Archaeologists digging deep under the city found signs of a settlement once inundated by the sea. Inspired by this clue, they began searching for more ruins in waters just off the coast.

    In only 70 feet of water, divers discovered sandstone walls, cobblestone streets and evidence of a prosperous seaport.
    Scholars declared these ruins to be the remains of the ancient and legendary city of Dwaraka.

    Ancient Hindu texts explain that the legendary city of Dwaraka was said to be the dwelling place of Lord Krishna, a deity worshipped across many traditions of Hinduism.

    Imagine what it would mean for the Christian world to all of a sudden discover the actual Holy Grail, the actual Ark of the Covenant.
    That would be akin, for the Indian population, to discover an actual Dwaraka. This was a very powerful city, which was ruled by Lord Krishna. And Krishna is still revered until today. He’s one of the highest gods that we have in Hindu culture.

    Hindu texts explain that a king named Salwa attacked Lord Krishna in the mythical Dwaraka. Ancient astronaut theorists believe the descriptions of the battle suggest the use of alien technology and even spacecraft.

    According to the ancient Sanskrit texts, with this spacecraft, Salwa attacked the city, raining down energy weapons that resemble lightning. He destroyed large parts of the city in this way When this happened, the king of the city, the god Krishna, responded by firing weapons at this spacecraft.

    The weapons are described as arrows, but they’re not ordinary arrows. It’s said that they roared like thunder when they were launched, and resembled bolts of lightning or rays of the sun.

    In response, it is said that the spacecraft began to appear in different places simultaneously. It appeared to be moving in ways that resemble modern descriptions of UFOs.

    So what I find interesting about this account is, there’s a spacecraft made of metal that is firing down weapons on a city on Earth. The legend says that Krishna eventually departed Earth, and the ocean consumed his city of Dwaraka.

    For many people, the description of fabulous ancient cities in the Sanskrit writings of India were simply mythology, but with the discovery of the remains of a sunken city off the coast of India in the location of Dwaraka, all that has changed.

    People are beginning to look at these ancient writings in a new light, and see them not simply as mythology, but actual historical records.

    Did India’s ancestors witness a war between extraterrestrial entities?

    If the mythical city cited in the Hindu texts turned out to be real, could there also be evidence of Krishna and his supernatural powers?

    Ancient alien theorists believe a link between the submerged ruins and extraterrestrials can be found in another set of texts known as India’s Sangam literature. Sangams were assemblies of sages.

    It says that the first two Sangams took place on a sunken landmass called Kumari Kandam. This area was once above water thousands of years ago, according to the accounts, but it’s now underwater.

    It’s also interesting that these assemblies of sages included extraterrestrial beings, as well. And this fits in with evidence discovered in the Gulf of Cambay, and off the coast of the present city of Dwaraka.

    Are the interpretations of India’s ancient texts proof of alien contact in Earth’s past?

    And are the descriptions of gods actually descriptions of extraterrestrials?

    Perhaps another discovery one beneath a mysterious lake will yield even more evidence of alien visitors in the remote past.

    The Andes Mountains, Peru.

    Here, at an elevation of 12,500 feet, lie the dark waters of Lake Titicaca, the highest navigable body of water in the world.

    In August of 2000, an Italian team of divers and archaeologists launched an underwater investigation of the legendary lake.

    There, submerged under 100 feet of water, the team uncovered traces of a paved road, a stone terrace, and a wall nearly a half mile long.

    For centuries, local legends have spoken of a lost underwater city called Wanaku.

    Could these ruins provide proof that such a city did, in fact, exist?

    Then, another shocking discovery. Lying on the lake bed was a large, sculptured stone head.

    Could this ancient relic offer a clue to the origins of this incredible archaeological find? Comparisons were quickly made to similar stonework found at the nearby ancient city of Tiahuana, just 12 miles south of Lake Titicaca a city long thought by ancient astronaut theorists to have extraterrestrial origins.

    When the early conquistadors talked to the local Aymara Indians they were told that-that giants at the beginning of creation had created Tiahuanaco. The Spanish, too, were amazed by the gigantic blocks of stone. They felt that the devil had built this building.

    If you look at some of the rock cut on megalithic structures at the site of Tiahuanaco, I personally believe very strongly that we are looking at an older episode of construction and the traces of a forgotten episode in the human story.

    The Gate of the Sun at Tiahuanaco. Image credit: Shutterstock.

    But if the ruins found at the bottom of Lake Titicaca are from the legendary lost city of Wanaku, what happened to it?

    Did it fall prey to a major earthquake or another natural disaster?

    Or was the city, as some ancient astronaut theorists believe, deliberately flooded?

    The more you know about Lake Titicaca, the stranger it gets. Archeologists have problems in really explaining why there are sunken ruins there because they’re saying that the ruins aren’t that old. They’re only 1,500 years old.

    And that would mean that Lake Titicaca has gone through a number of major changes in that period. And it’s possible that somehow the lake itself and the shorelines were manipulated so that certain areas of Lake Titicaca were flooded in a sort of artificial way.

    There is a type of seahorse that lives in Lake Titicaca. And seahorses are coming from saltwater and oceans, yet these seahorses are living at nearly 13,000 feet in the Andes.

    But just how could an ancient people have artificially created South America’s largest lake?

    A lake that is 118 miles long and 50 miles wide? When you ask the local population, “How did all of this come into being?” the Aymara Indians will tell you that all of this has existed since before the beginning of time.

    In the Aymara legends, the lake is like the place of Genesis, the place where it starts all the civilizations in our continent.

    We have these very, very, very old roots. I mean, we’re not talking only about this civilization, this humanity. We are talking about our seeds, the roots of the stars.

    Some people believe that the extraterrestrial built, but what I believe is that the space brothers help us, direct us, teach us, because they had the experience in many ways.

    The legend says that once the space brothers came to this planet to live with us, they were very important in our lives and they used to be very powerful people.

    But is it possible that the lost city of Wanaku was really built, or inhabited, by the ancient ancestors of the indigenous Aymara people?

    And if so, could it have been deliberately flooded to avoid detection from the outside world?

    The elders, they used to talk about the underwater city.

    They talk about the lights like stars connecting with the lake.

    The stars, when they come down to the lake, there are changes in the temperatures.

    There are many legends with lights coming from the underground of the lake.

    It seems they come, they go and they return in different moments.

    You start to get the idea that there is some kind of ancient alien underwater base. And it’s possible that some of these sunken ruins are, uh, somehow part of that base.

    Could the ancient city of Wanaku really have been built by alien visitors?

    And if so, why?

    What was their purpose?

    Could the discovery of this and other sunken cities pride the evidence that mankind has been seeking for centuries evidence that proves that we are not alone?

    These mysterious underwater structures really don’t have any context or any background; they just seem to come from nowhere.

    They seem to stand out as being out of place in time, so there’s some question marks, some mystery surrounding them that might shed new light on human history.

    Atlantis, Lake Titicaca, Dwaraka. All those ancient mystery places always have had a connection to the gods.

    The gods who, in the ancient astronaut opinion, were flesh and blood extraterrestrials.

    And in the end, the ancient astronaut theory will be proven right.

    Russia's Doomsday Weapon Revealed In New Video

    Russia's Doomsday Weapon Revealed In New Video

    Leaked video shows Russian "Doomsday Device" capable of triggering tsunamis of up to 300-feet.

    Following President Trump's contentious meeting with Vladimir Putin, the Russian governmenthas released a series of videos showcasing an array of new nuclear weapons. One video, in particular, is most disconcerting. It is rumored to be a giant torpedo purpose-built to avoid US defenses. One expert has nicknamed it a "Doomsday Machine."


    Putin himself has addressed the weapon on March 1st. According to a Kremlin translation of Putin's remarks, the weapon is said to be remotely-controlled, allowing for no Russian casualties, be able to hold masses of nuclear power, as well as have few vulnerabilities. "It is really fantastic," said Putin, "there is really nothing in the world capable of withstanding them".

    A torpedo-shaped device called 'Poseidon' featured on the Russian Ministry of Defenses' YouTube account on July 19th. The new clips show real-world footage of a prototype warhead. Defense analyst H.I. Sutton believes Poseidon could measure in at about 2 meters (6.5 feet) wide and 20 meters (66 feet) long rendering capable of holding great nuclear power.

    Nuclear Weapon Russia

    Why is this new weapon so terrifying?

    In 2015 the Russian government released diagrams of weapon that looks eerily similar to Poseidon which suggested the weapon would be capable of carrying a 50-megaton nuclear bomb which is about as powerful as Tsar Bomba, the largest nuclear device ever donated.

    US nuclear tests of the 1940s, '50s, and '60s, including the underwater operations Crossroads Baker and Hardtack I Wahoo, illustrated why bombs detonated underwater could be so devastating. Warships were staged around the explosions to test the effect of the bombs, which were roughly as energetic as the bombs dropped on Hiroshima or Nagasaki on August 1945. Some warships were vaporized, others were flipped and sunk, while only a few sustained cracked hulls and damaged engines.

    However, experts have questioned the purpose and effectiveness of Putin's device. While it could potentially create a Tsunami, if detonated above ground the effects could be far more destructive and widespread. There is also no guarantee the Tsunami would occur, especially as the bomb would be detonated miles from shore and waves lose energy as they approach land meaning it would be a waste of a nuclear bomb and a significant amount of money for Russia.

    Why Would Russia Develop Such A Weapon?

    While the reports and leaked videos/images portray a terrifying 'Doomsday Machine', it is still unconfirmed whether Putin has developed this weapon of mass destruction or not.

    In 2015, Jeffrey Lewis, an expert on nuclear policy at the Middlebury Institute of International Studies, wrote an article saying there wasn't speculation that the underwater bomb might be "salted", or surrounded with metals like cobalt, which would drastically increase the radius of fatal radiation levels from fallout for at least several months, or possibly even decades. However, if detonated underwater, the vast majority of the fallout or 'source term' will never escape the water as airborne particles.

    Whereas, if it was dropped on land, almost 100% of the source term would end up on the land and so the devastation from a "salted" weapon detonated on land would be far worse than that of a weapon detonated below the water, salted or not.

    To Lewis and many other nuclear experts, it doesn't really matter whether the rumors are real or not and Russia really has this kind of weaponry:

    "Simply announcing to the world that you find this to be a reasonable approach to [nuclear] deterrence should be enough to mark you out as a dangerous creep, "Lewis said.

    To conclude, this is certainly a worrying development emerging from one of the most powerful countries in the world, and we should all be wary indeed.

    Asteroid on a collision course with Earth? These astronomers will likely see it first. NASA’s Center for Near-Earth Object Studies – now entering its 3rd decade – makes over 90 percent of near-Earth asteroid and comet discoveries. Here’s how and why they do their work.

    NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory originally published this story

    On March 11, 1998, asteroid astronomers around the world received an ominous message: new observational data on the recently discovered asteroid 1997 XF11 suggested there was a chance that the half-mile-wide (nearly one km wide) object could hit Earth in 2028.

    The message came from the Minor Planet Center, in Cambridge, Massachusetts, the worldwide repository for such observations and initial determination of asteroid orbits. And although it was intended to alert only the very small astronomical community that hunts and tracks asteroids to call for more observations, the news spread quickly.

    The animation depicts a mapping of the positions of known near-Earth objects (NEOs) at points in time over the past 20 years, and finishes with a map of all known asteroids as of January 2018. Asteroid search teams supported by NASA's NEO Observations Program have found over 95 percent of near-Earth asteroids currently known. There are now over 18,000 known NEOs and the discovery rate averages about 40 per week.

    Most media outlets did not know what to make of the announcement, and mistakenly highlighted the prospect that Earth was doomed.

    Fortunately, it turned out that Earth was never in danger from 1997 XF11. After performing a more thorough orbit analysis with the available asteroid observations, Don Yeomans, then the leader of the Solar System Dynamics group at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, along with his colleague Paul Chodas, concluded otherwise. Chodas, who is now director of NASA’s Center for Near-Earth Object Studies (CNEOS), located at JPL, said:

    The 2028 impact was essentially impossible.

    To this day we still get queries on the chances of XF11 impacting in 2028. There is simply no chance of XF11 impacting our planet that year, or for the next 200 years.

    Chodas knows this thanks to CNEOS’ precise orbit calculations using observation data submitted to the Minor Planet Center by observatories all over the world that detect and track the motion of asteroids and comets. For the past two decades, CNEOS calculations have enabled NASA to become the world leader in these efforts, keeping close watch on all nearby asteroids and comets – especially those that can cross Earth’s orbit. Chodas said:

    We compute high-precision orbits for all asteroids and comets and map their positions in the solar system, both forward in time to detect potential impacts, and backward to see where they’ve been in the sky. We provide the best map of orbits for all known small bodies in the solar system.

    The chart depicts the cumulative number of known Near-Earth asteroids (NEAs) versus time. The area in red depicts the number of known NEAs larger than 0.6 miles (1 km). The area in orange depicts the quantity of known NEAs larger than 460 feet (140 meters). The area in blue depicts the number of known NEAs in all sizes.

    Mapping the Celestial Hazard

    Near-Earth Objects (NEOs) are asteroids and comets in orbits that bring them into the inner solar system, within 121 million miles (195 million km) of the sun, and also within roughly 30 million miles (50 million km) of Earth’s orbit around the sun.

    The media frenzy around NEO 1997 XF11 demonstrated the need for clarity and precision in communicating with the public about the close passes by Earth of these objects, as well as, Chodas said:

    the importance of peer review before public statements like these are made.

    NASA’s original intent was to fulfill a 1998 Congressional request to detect and catalog at least 90 percent of all NEOs larger than one kilometer in size (roughly two-thirds of a mile) within 10 years. To help reach the Congressional goal, NASA Headquarters requested that JPL establish a new office to work with the data provided by the Minor Planet Center for submission of all observations of asteroids and comets. The new office would also coordinate with observatories operated by academic institutions around the United States, as well as U.S. Air Force space surveillance assets.

    In the summer of 1998, NASA established the Near-Earth Object Observations Program, and JPL became the home for the agency’s research data and analysis on NEOs, then called the Near-Earth Object Program Office.

    In 2016, the office was renamed the Center for Near-Earth Object Studies (CNEOS) in conjunction with the establishment of the Planetary Defense Coordination Office at NASA Headquarters in Washington.

    For about 20 years, CNEOS has been NASA’s central hub for accurately mapping the orbits of all the known NEOs, predicting their upcoming close approaches, reliably assessing their chances of impact to our planet, and delivering that information to both astronomers worldwide and the general public.

    Predicting Close Approaches and Impacts: Sentry and Scout

    The first and most important step in assessing the impact risk of an asteroid or comet is to determine whether any given object’s orbit will cross Earth’s orbit – and then how close it will actually get to our planet. JPL was determining high-precision orbits for a few NEOs even before NASA launched its NEO Observations Program, and has since upgraded its orbit models to provide the most accurate assessment available for asteroid positions and orbits.

    Observatories around the world take digital images of the sky to detect moving points of light (the asteroid or comet) over days, weeks, months and even decades. They then report the positions of these moving objects relative to the static background of stars to the International Astronomical Union-sanctioned Minor Planet Center (for more details, see How a Speck of Light Becomes an Asteroid). The CNEOS scientists then use all this observation data to more precisely calculate an NEO’s orbit and predict its motion forward in time for many years, looking for close approaches and potential impacts to the Earth, its moon, and other planets.

    A CNEOS system called Sentry searches ahead for all potential future Earth impact possibilities over the next 100 years – for every known NEO. Sentry’s impact monitoring runs continually using the latest CNEOS-generated orbit models, and the results are stored online. In most cases so far, the probabilities of any potential impacts are extremely small, and in other cases, the objects themselves are so small – less than 20 meters in size, or nearly 66 feet – that they would almost certainly disintegrate even if they did enter Earth’s atmosphere. Steve Chesley of JPL, a member of the CNEOS team who was the main developer of the Sentry system, said:

    If Sentry finds potential impacts for an object, we add it to our online ‘impact risk’ table, and asteroid observers can then prioritize that object for further observation. The more measurements made of the object’s position over time, the better we can predict its future path.

    In most cases, the new measurements mean the object can be removed from the risk list because the uncertainties in the orbital path are reduced and the possibility of impact is ruled out.

    More recently, CNEOS also developed a system called Scout to provide more immediate and automatic trajectory analyses for the most recently discovered objects, even before independent observatories confirm their discovery. Operating around the clock, the Scout system not only notifies observers of the highest priority objects to observe at any given time, it also immediately alerts the Planetary Defense Coordination Office of any possible imminent impacts within the next few hours or days. A recent example is the Scout-predicted impact of the small asteroid 2018 LA over Botswana, Africa.

    More Hunting to Do

    With the addition of more capable NASA-funded asteroid surveys over the years, NASA’s NEO Observations Program is responsible for over 90 percent of near-Earth asteroid and comet discoveries. There are now over 18,000 known NEOs and the discovery rate averages about 40 per week.

    Although the original Congressional goal from 1998 has been exceeded and much progress has been made in asteroid discovery and tracking over the past two decades, the work isn’t over. In 2005, Congress established a new, much more ambitious goal for the NEO Observations Program – to discover 90 percent of the NEOs down to the much smaller size of 450 feet (140 meters), and to do so by the year 2020.

    These smaller asteroids may not present a threat of global catastrophe if they impact Earth, but they could still cause massive regional devastation and loss of life, especially if they occur near a metropolitan area. CNEOS continues to make improvements to its orbital analysis tools, image and graphic presentation capabilities, and updates of its websites to quickly and accurately provide the very latest information on NEOs to the Planetary Defense Coordination Office, the astronomical community and the public.

    • Bottom line: Asteroid heading toward Earth? NASA’s Center for Near-Earth Object Studies – now entering its 3rd decade – makes over 90 percent of near-Earth asteroid and comet discoveries.

    Strange Golden Lights Captured on Camera in Northwoods Wisconsin

    night-976900_640.jpg

    A man camping with his family on private land in northern Wisconsin reported seeing a floating cloud of glowing golden lights at approximately 3 a.m. on July 28th.

    The man told the Singular Fortean Society that he had awoken from a "dead sleep" and saw the lights hovering next to a lantern.

    He managed to take a video with his cellphone camera, which captured some of the golden lights floating near the blue-white light of the lantern.

    "[The lights] had a lot of smaller spots that floated around, zig zagged, and left glowing lines in the air inside this aura of gold color," he said. "And then larger brighter golden lights that winked in and out, and sort of moved around but slower, which is about all you can see in the video," 

    The unusual aerial display lasted for around 15 minutes, at which time the lights disappeared.

    "They winked out in the same place, the smaller ones first and then the big ones," the witness said. "Since they were appearing and disappearing it was more like they just went out one by one and didn't come back. Then the entire golden aura/blob went out that contained the lights."

    The area in which the lights appeared was northeast of their campsite, and a hill obscures the only house in that area, which stands about 1/2 mile from the site--meaning the lights could not have come as a result of distorted houselights.  Otherwise, the campsite exists within nothing but hundreds of acres of woods and water.

    Historical weather data from the date and location of the sighting shows that the temperature at the time was hovering near 47 degrees, which is much cooler than fireflies prefer, making it unlikely that the glowing insects were responsible for the sighting. Fireflies prefer warm, humid air, and are significantly less active when the temperature dips below 60 degrees; they also don't often swarm in such tight, cloud-like formations.

    "[There were] no insects really," he reported. "Normal flies during the day, but no biters and almost no skeeters. Then at night, nothing."

    Other natural phenomena like ball lighting and swamp gas can likely be ruled out, since they do not appear as dozens of tiny individual glowing lights, but rather as a single object.

    The witness and his family do stay regularly at the site, and he has promised to investigate the phenomenon should he see it again.

    "If I see it again I'll hit it with a high powered flash light," he said. "But I had that sitting on my truck."

    "Believe it or not getting out in the woods with 'something' isn't really an attractive thing when you're there."

    First Successful Test of General Relativity Near Supermassive Black Hole

    Einstein's Relativity Tested by Giant Star and Monster Black Hole | Exploring Nature
    Obscured by thick clouds of absorbing dust, the closest supermassive black hole to the Earth lies 26,000 light-years away at the centre of the Milky Way. This gravitational monster, which has a mass four million times that of the Sun, is surrounded by a small group of stars orbiting around it at high speed.This extreme environment - the strongest gravitational field in our galaxy - makes it the perfect place to explore gravitational physics, and particularly to test Einstein's general theory of relativity. New infrared observations from the exquisitely sensitive GRAVITY, SINFONI and NACO instruments, developed under the lead of the Max Planck Institute for Extraterrestrial Physics (MPE), have now allowed astronomers to follow one of these stars, called S2, as it passed very close to the black hole during May 2018. At the closest point this star was at a distance of less than 20 billion kilometres from the black hole and moving at a speed in excess of 25 million kilometres per hour - almost three percent of the speed of light.

    The team compared the position and velocity measurements from GRAVITY and SINFONI respectively, along with previous observations of S2 using other instruments, with the predictions of Newtonian gravity, general relativity and other theories of gravity. The new results are inconsistent with Newtonian predictions and in excellent agreement with the predictions of general relativity.

    These extremely precise measurements were made by an international team led by Reinhard Genzel (MPE) in Garching, Germany, in conjunction with collaborators around the world, at the Paris Observatory-PSL, the Universite Grenoble Alpes, CNRS, the Max Planck Institute for Astronomy, the University of Cologne, the Portuguese CENTRA (Centro de Astro?sica e Gravitacao) and ESO. The observations are the culmination of a 26-year series of ever-more-precise observations of the centre of the Milky Way using ESO instruments.

    "This is the second time that we have observed the close passage of S2 around the black hole in our galactic centre. But this time, because of much improved instrumentation, we were able to observe the star with unprecedented resolution," explains Genzel. "We have been preparing intensely for this event over several years, as we wanted to make the most of this unique opportunity to observe general relativistic effects."

    The new measurements clearly reveal an effect called gravitational redshift. Light from the star is stretched to longer wavelengths by the very strong gravitational field of the black hole. And the change in the wavelength of light from S2 agrees precisely with that predicted by Einstein's general theory of relativity. This is the first time that this deviation from the predictions of the simpler Newtonian theory of gravity has been observed in the motion of a star around a supermassive black hole.

    The team used SINFONI to measure the velocity of S2 towards and away from Earth and the GRAVITY instrument in the VLT Interferometer (VLTI) to make extraordinarily precise measurements of the changing position of S2 in order to define the shape of its orbit. GRAVITY creates such sharp images that it can reveal the motion of the star from night to night as it passes close to the black hole - 26,000 light-years from Earth.

    "Our first observations of S2 with GRAVITY, about two years ago, already showed that we would have the ideal black hole laboratory," adds Frank Eisenhauer (MPE), principal investigator of GRAVITY and the SINFONI spectrograph.

    "During the close passage, we could even detect the faint glow around the black hole on most of the images, which allowed us to precisely follow the star on its orbit, ultimately leading to the detection of the gravitational redshift in the spectrum of S2."

    More than one hundred years after he published his paper setting out the equations of general relativity, Einstein has been proved right once more - in a much more extreme laboratory than he could have possibly imagined!

    "Due to the extremely strong gravitational field we expect to see the effects of general relativity - but only if we can look close enough," says Stefan Gillessen, "This is why we needed to push the technology. With SINFONI we can measure the radial velocity of stars very accurately and GRAVITY gives us extremely sharp images and accurate positions."

    Continuing observations are expected to reveal another relativistic effect very soon - a small rotation of the star's orbit, known as Schwarzschild precession - as S2 moves away from the black hole.

    Xavier Barcons, ESO's Director General, concludes: "ESO has worked with Reinhard Genzel and his team and collaborators in the ESO Member States for over a quarter of a century. It was a huge challenge to develop the uniquely powerful instruments needed to make these very delicate measurements and to deploy them at the VLT in Paranal. The discovery announced is the very exciting result of a remarkable partnership."

    A clean curation lab at Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas, holding Apollo rocks collected from the moon.

    NASA ‘clean’ room is contaminated with fungus

    Clean rooms are the final line of defense in extraterrestrial exploration: Spacecraft departing for other worlds are stripped of any biological contaminants there, and samples returning from space, such as the Apollo moon rocks, are stored in pristine conditions to be studied later. But a new study suggests that a clean room storing meteorite samples at NASA’s Johnson Space Center (JSC) in Houston, Texas, may not be quite so clean, after all. It’s contaminated with an abundance of terrestrial fungus. The microbes—most from the common genus Penicillium—could confound the search for life in off-world specimens, just as the lab is preparing to receive samples from Mars and the carbon-rich asteroid Bennu.

    “I’d characterize it as eye-opening,” says spectroscopist Marc Fries, who curates the cosmic dust collection at JSC but was not involved in the new work. “It drives home this point that fungi are an important part of microbial contamination.”

    The results aren’t entirely shocking—the room in question was designed to be what’s known as ISO class 6, an international standard running from class 1 to class 9, in which class 1 is the cleanest—but they still mean that researchers need to be on their toes when curating future samples, says geomicrobiologist Aaron Regberg of JSC, who presented the findings this week at the 2018 Lunar and Planetary Science Conference in The Woodlands, Texas.

    As part of a series of in-depth evaluations at JSC, Regberg and his colleagues swabbed the floor, table, and workbench of the lab where Antarctic meteorites are stored and processed for research. The meteorites, which blasted from the surface of other worlds before landing on Earth, are kept in cabinets pumped full of nitrogen at above-atmospheric pressures to help prevent material from entering the sealed environments. The researchers found between four and 28 viable cells per passport photo–size unit of area—similar to those in clean rooms at the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, and the Kennedy Space Center in Florida where spacecraft are assembled. Much higher contaminant counts were detected inside the air filter for the nitrogen gas—installed in 1979 and not opened for nearly 40 years—but Regberg says the bugs were growing on the filter’s outer parts and multiple additional lines of defense separated this fungi from the actual samples.

    Although most microbes in the other facilities were bacteria, between 83% and 97% of the microbes at the meteorite lab were fungus. That’s alarming because fungi can easily penetrate samples and grow branching filaments that chemically alter rocks. Some fungi also produce the amino acids α-aminoisobutyric acid and isovaline, which are rare on Earth but often found in carbon-containing asteroids. Were such earthly impurities to find their way into extraterrestrial samples, they could skew results, Regberg says.

    In fact, the findings have already caused astrobiologist Daniel Glavin of NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, to rethink his own research on lunar soils stored at NASA’s Astromaterials Acquisition and Curation office, which had detected some α-aminoisobutryic acid. He originally suspected that the amino acid came from meteorites crashing into the moon, but now he wonders whether it might have a more terrestrial origin story.

    Exactly why the researchers found more fungi than in previous tests is unclear. It’s possible that the low-nutrient environment at the curation office somehow favored fungal growth, but Regberg suspects that it’s because prior analyses failed to include the right mix of food and incubations times and temperatures in the growth media they used to cultivate the samples. “I wonder if we’ve not found fungi in other locations because we weren’t looking for them,” he says.

    Secrets of the Great Pyramid of Giza continue to unravel as scientists discover it can focus electromagnetic energy through its hidden chambers

    • New analysis shows pyramid concentrates electromagnetic energy in chambers
    • This includes two chambers inside, and a third unfinished one beneath the base
    • Scientists say breakthrough could lead to more efficient nanoparticle designs

    The remarkable electromagnetic properties of the Great Pyramid of Giza could soon inspire nanoparticle designs for highly-efficient sensors and solar cells.

    Scientists have discovered the famous pyramid concentrates electric and magnetic energy into its internal chambers and below its base, creating pockets of higher energy.

    If this concentrating effect is able to be recreated on a nanoscale size, it could lead to a wave of new, more efficient sensors and solar cells, the researchers claim.

    While the 481-foot pyramid constructed thousands of years ago for Pharaoh Khufu has long drawn intrigue for its purported mythical qualities, the study is among a growing body of research that attempts to finally get to the bottom of its physical properties.

    Scientists have found that the famous Great Pyramid of Giza can concentrate electric and magnetic energy in its chambers and below its base, giving rise to distinct pockets of higher energy

    Scientists have found that the famous Great Pyramid of Giza can concentrate electric and magnetic energy in its chambers and below its base, giving rise to distinct pockets of higher energy

    ‘Egyptian pyramids have always attracted great attention,’ says Dr Andrey Evlyukhin, scientific supervisor and coordinator of the research.

    ‘We as scientists were interested in them as well, so we decided to look at the Great Pyramid as a particle dissipating radio waves resonantly.’

    The international research team looked into the relationship between the shape of the Great Pyramid of Giza and its ability to focus electromagnetic energy.

    To do this, the team led by ITMO University in Saint Petersburg, Russia, created a model of the pyriadmid, one of the seven wonders of the ancient world, to accurately measure it electromagnetic response.

    However, due to the lack of reliable information about the properties of the pyramid, the team was forced to fill-in the blanks for some factors of their model.

    ‘We had to use some assumptions,’ Evlyukhin admitted. ‘For example, we assumed that there are no unknown cavities inside, and the building material with the properties of an ordinary limestone is evenly distributed in and out of the pyramid.

    ‘With these assumptions made, we obtained interesting results that can find important practical applications.’

    Scientists used multipole analysis – a method widely-used in physics to study the interaction between a complex object and electromagnetic field – to reveal how the pyramid concentrates electromagnetic energy into in its underground chambers.

    A multipole analysis shows the pyramid concentrates electromagnetic energy in its hidden chambers. The distributions of electric (a)¿(e) and magnetic (f)¿(j) field magnitude in the Pyramid and its supporting substrate is shown above

    This includes the two chambers believed to have contained the remains of Pharaoh Khufu and his wife, as well as the third unfinished chamber buried beneath the base.

    The Ancient Egyptians that built the pyramids more than 4,400 years ago were not aware of this quirk of design.

    However, researchers now believe the relationship between the design of the pyramid and its ability to focus wave energy through to its core could play a hugely-important for nanoparticle research in the future.

    When considering the pyramid on a substrate – such as the limestone plateau – the researchers say it focuses the energy through the empty spaces to the substrate.

    ‘In the case of the Pyramid on the substrate, at the shorter wavelengths, the electromagnetic energy accumulates in the chambers providing local spectral maxima for electric and magnetic fields,’ the researchers wrote in the study.

    ‘It is shown that basically the Pyramid scatters the electromagnetic waves and focuses them in to the substrate region.’

    THE PYRAMID OF GIZA 

    The Great Pyramid, also known as Khufu's Pyramid, is the sole survivor of the ancient Seven Wonders of the World

    The Great Pyramid, also known as Khufu's Pyramid, is the sole survivor of the ancient Seven Wonders of the World

    For more than 4,500 years, Egypt's pyramids have kept their secrets hidden deep within the labyrinth of passages and chambers that lie inside their towering stone structures.

    But the long-running row over whether the Great Pyramid of Giza is hiding a network of previously undiscovered tunnels behind its stone walls has now been answered.

    The researchers confirmed the find using cosmic particles known as muons to scan the Great Pyramid of Giza.

    They used the scans to create maps to reveal the internal structure of the 479 feet (146m) high pyramid.

    Last year thermal scanning identified a major anomaly in the Great Pyramid, the largest and oldest of the pyramids at Giza and one of the seven Wonders of the Ancient World.

    Those scans identified three adjacent stones at its base which registered higher temperatures than others.

    Those scans identified three adjacent stones at its base which registered higher temperatures than others.

    This led to theories that they may be hiding a secret chamber that had yet to be discovered.

    A team of experts then set up the ScanPyramid's project to use muons, tiny subatomic particle that are typically produced by cosmic rays smash into atoms on Earth, to peer through the pyramid's huge stone blocks, some of which weight up to 15 tons.

    Dr Hawass has in the past been sceptical of the usefulness of conducting such scans.

    He recently clashed publicly with British Egyptologists over their theory that a secret burial chamber may be hidden behind the walls of Tutankhamun's tomb in his pyramid in the Valley of the Kings.'

    Although this research seems unconventional, modern physical approaches have been previously used to study the Great Pyramid, and led to a discovery of a completely new structure,' said Antonija Grubisic-Cabo, a physicist from Monash University who was not involved in the research.

    'As this research is completely theoretical, it is difficult to say what we can expect it to lead to, or if it is even possible to do this in real life.'

    However, the researchers behind the study are confident that the manner in which electromagnetic energy distribute in the pyramid could help scientists create efficient nanoparticle designs in the future. 

    That depends on whether the researchers are able to recreate the concentrating effect observed in the Great Pyramid of Giza on a nanoscale size.

    Dr Polina Kapitainova, of the Faculty of Physics and Technology of ITMO University, said: 'Choosing a material with suitable electromagnetic properties, we can obtain pyramidal nanoparticles with a promise for practical application in nanosensors and effective solar cells.'

    I’m assuming it took place over Nevada based on the time. If you look closely, a white blinking light appears randomly both in front and behind the object.

    This object when viewed by human eyes was white and glowing. Lost sight of it after 5 or 6 minutes as it slowly went behind the wing.

    UFOs on the Moon? Space agency captures bizarre flashes of light on dark side of the Moon

    THIS is the moment two bizarre flashes of light erupted on the dark side of the Moon – but could these lights be alien UFOs?

    The bizarre phenomena were observed from Earth by the Moon Impacts Detection and Analysis System (MIDAS) on the nights of July 17 and July 18.

    MIDAS observatories in Spain scan the surface of the Moon on a daily basis, in search of asteroid and meteor impacts.

    A European  Agency (ESA) statement revealed the flashes were registered almost exactly 24 hours apart, “seemingly in pursuit” of one another.

    Detailed photographs of the Moon’s bumpy surface, captured by high-sensitivity CCD cameras, show the exact moment of impact.

    But could this footage be the evidence  hunters need to finally settle the debate on whether alien visitors to Earth exist or not?

    It is extremely unlikely the lunar photos have anything to do with aliens but both MIDAS and the ESA agree the flashes were very much extraterrestrial in origin.

    The ESA said: “On July 17, 2018, an ancient lump from space thwacked into the Moon with enough energy to produce a brilliant flash of light.

    “With another rock seemingly in pursuit, a second flash lit up a different region of the Moon almost exactly 24 hours later.”

    Despite the force of impact, current estimates suggest the foreign impactors were no larger than the average walnut.

    Space rocks of this size dubbed meteoroids are typically remnants of bigger asteroids and comets drifting aimlessly through space.

    The flashing meteoroids in question most likely originated from the dusty comet trail left behind in the wake of the Alpha Capricornids meteor shower.

    The Alpha Capricornids shower usually starts as early as July 15 and continues until mid-August.

    The ESA said: “For at least a thousand years people have claimed to witness short-lived phenomena on the face of the Moon.

    “By definition these transient flashes are hard to study, and determining their cause remains a challenge.”

    Three astronomical observatories in Spain scan the Moon for the transient flashes on behalf of the MIDAS project.

    The observatories use powerful telescopes and CCD cameras to detect and identify the various impacts that rock the glowing orb.

    Jose Maria Madiedo, MIDAS, said better understanding these lunar impacts can help better protect Earth from similar dangers.

    The space expert said: “By studying meteoroids on the Moon we can determine how many rocks impact it and how often, and from this we can infer the chances of impact on Earth.”

    humans on Mars

    Preparations are already underway for missions that will land humans on Mars in a decade or so. But what would people eat if these missions eventually lead to the permanent colonization of the red planet?

    https://youtu.be/LMKl-KAg07U

    Growing Food on Mars | MARS: How to Survive on Mars

    Once (if) humans do make it to Mars, a major challenge for any colony will be to generate a stable supply of food. The enormous costs of launching and resupplying resources from Earth will make that impractical.

    Humans on Mars will need to move away from complete reliance on shipped cargo, and achieve a high level of self-sufficient and sustainable agriculture.

    The recent discovery of liquid water on Mars — which adds new information to the question of whether we will find life on the planet — does raise the possibility of using such supplies to help grow food.

    But water is only one of many things we will need if we’re to grow enough food on Mars.

    What Sort of Food?

    Previous work has suggested the use of microbes as a source of food on Mars. The use of hydroponic greenhouses and controlled environmental systems, similar to one being tested onboard the International Space Station to grow crops, is another option.

    This month, in the journal Genes, we provide a new perspective based on the use of advanced synthetic biology to improve the potential performance of plant life on Mars.

    Synthetic biology is a fast-growing field. It combines principles from engineering, DNA science, and computer science (among many other disciplines) to impart new and improved functions to living organisms.

    Not only can we read DNA, but we can also design biological systems, test them, and even engineer whole organisms. Yeast is just one example of an industrial workhorse microbe whose whole genome is currently being re-engineered by an international consortium.

    The technology has progressed so far that precision genetic engineering and automation can now be merged into automated robotic facilities, known as biofoundries.

    These biofoundries can test millions of DNA designs in parallel to find the organisms with the qualities that we are looking for.

    the red planet

    Mars and Earth still differ in many ways. 

    Mars: Earth-Like but Not Earth

    Although Mars is the most Earth-like of our neighbouring planets, Mars and Earth differ in many ways.

    The gravity on Mars is around a third of that on Earth. Mars receives about half of the sunlight we get on Earth, but much higher levels of harmful ultraviolet (UV) and cosmic rays. The surface temperature of Mars is about -60 degrees Celsius, and it has a thin atmosphere primarily made of carbon dioxide.

    Unlike Earth’s soil, which is humid and rich in nutrients and microorganisms that support plant growth, Mars is covered with regolith. This is an arid material that contains perchlorate chemicals that are toxic to humans.

    Also — despite the latest sub-surface lake find — water on Mars mostly exists in the form of ice, and the low atmospheric pressure of the planet makes liquid water boil at around 5 degrees Celsius.

    Plants on Earth have evolved for hundreds of millions of years and are adapted to terrestrial conditions, but they will not grow well on Mars.

    This means that substantial resources that would be scarce and priceless for humans on Mars, like liquid water and energy, would need to be allocated to achieve efficient farming by artificially creating optimal plant growth conditions.

    Adapting Plants to Mars

    A more rational alternative is to use synthetic biology to develop crops specifically for Mars. This formidable challenge can be tackled and fast-tracked by building a plant-focused Mars Biofoundry.

    Such an automated facility would be capable of expediting the engineering of biological designs and testing of their performance under simulated Martian conditions.

    With adequate funding and active international collaboration, such an advanced facility could improve many of the traits required for making crops thrive on Mars within a decade.

    This includes improving photosynthesis and photoprotection (to help protect plants from sunlight and UV rays), as well as drought and cold tolerance in plants, and engineering high-yield functional crops. We also need to modify microbes to detoxify and improve the Martian soil quality.

    These are all challenges that are within the capability of modern synthetic biology.

    Benefits for Earth

    Developing the next generation of crops required for sustaining humans on Mars would also have great benefits for people on Earth.

    The growing global population is increasing the demand for food. To meet this demand we must increase agricultural productivity, but we have to do so without negatively impacting our environment.

    The best way to achieve these goals would be to improve the crops that are already widely used. Setting up facilities such as the proposed Mars Biofoundry would bring immense benefit to the turnaround time of plant research with implications for food security and environmental protection.

    So, ultimately, the main beneficiary of efforts to develop crops for Mars would be Earth.

    Aztec Ball Court Discovered Beneath Mexico City Streets

    One of the great travesties of the European invasion of the Americas—if you can set aside the genocide, the chattel slavery, and other war crimes—was the destruction of history. Across the continent, invaders burned books, wiped out languages, and replaced ancient cities with their own settlements. That's what happened in Mexico City, built on the ruins of the Aztec capital of Tenochtitlan. But now, the excavation of an Aztec temple and a ceremonial ball court in the city itself has revealed that history can look strangely familiar to modern eyes.

    A Dream Beneath The City

    Because so many great indigenous cities were destroyed, it's easy to slip into the assumption that they were small, or primitive, or ephemeral by design. But Tenochtitlan was an undisputed architectural marvel. Using advanced draining and construction techniques, the city of stone seemed to rest on the surface of Lake Texcoco, and used freshwater springs that fed the lake as a constant source of drinking water. In the words of conquistador Bernal Díaz del Castillo, "We were amazed and said that it was like the enchantments... on account of the great towers and cues and buildings rising from the water, and all built of masonry. And some of our soldiers even asked whether the things that we saw were not a dream."

    The discovery of this 15th-century ball court and temple has already revealed much about the customs of the Aztecs before the Spanish invasion. The temple was devoted to Ehecatl, a god of the wind, and its prominent, half-circle design would have stood in stark contrast to the angular buildings that made up the rest of Tenochtitlan. The ballcourt may be the more significant discovery, however, because of the role the Mesoamerican ball game played in cultures as far north as Arizona to Nicaragua. The game wasn't just a national pastime, and that's putting it mildly. Besides the play area at this particular court, for example, archaeologists unearthed no fewer than 32 severed neck vertebrae—likely belonging to the losing teams. So what was this game that would inspire players to literally risk their necks?

    The Ultimate Contact Sport

    It's hard to overstate the importance of the Mesoamerican ball game to indigenous cultures across the Americas. It's one of the oldest sports in the world, and the first we know of to have used a rubber ball—examples of these balls have been dated to 1600 B.C.E. The game changed a lot as it slowly migrated north over its long history, but some rules remained constant in pretty much every iteration. Like racquetball, the goal is to keep the ball in play, and points can be scored when the opposing team knocks it out of bounds. In most versions, players can only knock the ball around with their hips—hands and feet are off limits. Later versions added the great stone-walled courts, which were then further modified with vertical hoops that players could bounce the ball through in order to score bonus points.

    But as you might have guessed by that pile of vertebrae, winning the game wasn't just a matter of hometown pride. In the Mayan version of the game, opposing city-states might choose to settle their differences on the ballcourt instead of on the battlefield, and also used the game as a means of foretelling the future. By the time the Aztecs adopted it, the ritual decapitation of the losing team was as much a part of the game as the pop-up fly rule is in baseball—though probably not as controversial.

    Believe it or not, the Mesoamerican ball game isn't just one of the oldest known sports, it's one of the oldest that's been continuously played up to this day. Called ulama, the modern-day version of the game features substantially less decapitation than its predecessor. It survived in remote communities, and in recent years, a new generation of the descendents of Mesoamerican peoples have found a new fascination with the game. In 2017, hundreds of people from various Latin American countries visited the ancient city of Teotihuacán for the first international ulamatournament. If it's true that ulama can be used to tell the future, then maybe the game is on the cusp of a new revival.

    All this time, outer space was secretly much closer than we thought

    Nothing changed with our atmosphere — just our calculations and assumptions have gotten better.

    Horizon atmosphere.

    Image credits NASA.

    A new research paper proposes that we are all one step closer to space than we assumed. If the calculations are proven correct, we might, in fact, be a full 12 miles closer. The exact altitude of this boundary — the plane where the laws that order airspace get superseded by those governing outer space — is an important piece of information in world politics, the authors note.

    The recalculated frontier

    The argument about where the atmosphere ends and space begins predates the launch of the first Sputnik,” wrote Jonathan McDowell, an astrophysicist at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, and sole author of the new paper. “The most widely accepted boundary is the so-called Karman Line, nowadays usually set to be 62 miles altitude.”

    The boundary between atmosphere and space is known as the Kármán line after its discoverer, aerodynamics researcher, and engineer Theodore von Kármán. In 1963, when the line was proposed, von Kármán suggested that the speed needed to lift an object into the atmosphere is the same as the speed needed to keep it in orbit around the Earth. He also believed that the horizontal movement of the object on orbit would counteract the effects of gravity. According to McDowell, however, this just isn’t true. The position of the line was therefore calculated based on a faulty assumption and without any real means of testing — this was a time before real-life orbital readings could be performed.

    For his study, McDowell drew on North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) data detailing the orbital comings and goings of over 43,000 satellites. Most of these orbited far above the Karman line, so McDowell removed their paths from the study. About 50 satellites, however, were used in the calculations.

    What set these 50 apart is that they all performed at least full rotations around the planet at low altitude (below 100km / 63 miles) as they re-entered the atmosphere at the end of their missions. The Soviet satellite Elektron-4, for example, performed ten full rotations around the planet at around 83 km (52 miles) before it burned up in the atmosphere in 1997. In other words, these cases revealed that satellites could still behave as if they were in outer space below the Karman line — which raises the possibility that the altitude line itself is overestimated.

    McDowell used a mathematical model to find the altitude at which the orbits of these satellites finally started to degrade and they dropped back into the atmosphere — he found that these events occurred between 70 to 82 kilometers (41 to 55 miles) high. However, for most satellites, the 80-kilometer (50-mile) mark seems to be the lowest possible stable orbit. So McDowell proposes this altitude as the new accepted boundary between our atmosphere and outer space.

    The suggestion may actually get some traction in the scientific community. The 80-kilometer mark fits with what we know of the atmosphere’s structure. The mesopause, stretching roughly between 83 and 100 kilometers high, is an area where the air’s chemical composition changes dramatically and charged particles become more abundant — which harkens more to the state of gases in outer space than those in our atmosphere. Below the lower edge of the mesopause, Earth’s atmosphere becomes a stronger force for airborne objects to reckon with, McDowell wrote.

    It is noteworthy that meteors (traveling much more quickly) usually disintegrate in the 43 to 62 miles altitude range, adding to the evidence that this is the region where the atmosphere becomes important,” he adds.

    While most outer space operations, such as rocket launches, should remain relatively unchanged if the new boundary is adopted, McDowell wrote, it could raise some important political and territorial issues

    The airspace above each country is generally considered to be part of that country — but outer space isn’t owned by anyone. If the limit of space is set at 100 kilometers high, for example, and an unauthorized satellite passes at 80 kilometers high, it could be rightfully considered an act of military aggression between states. Seeing as satellites tend to sometimes wobble up and down along their orbits, a lower limit of the atmosphere might help ease tensions.

    • The paper “The edge of space: Revisiting the Karman Line” will be published in the October issue of the journal Acta Astronautica.

    German Television Station Program Shows a Mysterious UFO

    ufo-tv

    Conspiracy theory YouTube channel ‘mavi777’ seemingly shows an unidentified flying object (UFO) in a German TV station program. Soon after the video was uploaded, it became the hottest debating point among alien enthusiasts and conspiracy theorists. The incident took place over a month back, revealed the YouTube channel.

    The clip shows a UFO in the backdrop of a TV studio. The strange object emanates light at times. It seems to appear and vanish rhythmically, which rules out a meteor.

    The UFO sighting video soon went viral, and multiple conspiracy theorists began suggesting that this event captured on camera is authentic evidence of space alien existence. These theorists also criticized the government for staying mum about the incident. They believe governments are aware of these extraterrestrial visitors, but they are covering up the facts to prevent public panic.

    A few days back, another UFO sighting was recorded on video during a weather program Skywatch7. WKBW-TV, an ABC affiliated TV station, released the strange sighting showing a blinking UFO in the skies during the live show.

    The show’s newscaster was also seen pointing her fingers at the object. She then suggested that it could be a drone. However, conspiracy theorists said that a human-made drone could not travel at such astonishing speed across the skies.

    Some conspiracy theorists think that Nibiru’s approach towards Earth causes the increasing number of anomalies in the skies. According to these theorists, Nibiru is a killer planet and now in its collision course with the Earth, and when this happens, devastating catastrophes will destroy the entire world.

    An easier way to search for life on Europa

    Jupiter’s moon Europa is a promising place to search for evidence of alien life. New research provides insights on what might be the best – and easiest – way to search.

    Artist’s concept of a plume from Europa’s subsurface ocean. Radiation from space has the potential to destroy organic molecules that have made their way via plumes like this one to the surface of Europa. New research now shows scientists where to look for such organics.

    Image via NASA/JPL-Caltech.

    When it comes to the question of what places in the solar system would be the best to search for alien life, Europa immediately comes to mind. This small moon of Jupiter seems to have everything necessary – a global subsurface ocean and likely sources of heat and chemical nutrients on the ocean floor. But looking for evidence isn’t easy; the ocean lies beneath a fairly thick crust of ice, making it difficult to access. That would require drilling through many meters or even several kilometers of ice, depending on the location.

    But there may be ways around that problem. It is almost certain now that plumes of water vapor can erupt from the surface, originating from the ocean below, where they could be sampled and analyzed by a flyby or orbiting probe. And now there is another potential solution – a new study, described in Space.com on July 23, 2018, shows that a lander on Europa (now in preliminary concept studies) might only have to dig a few inches/centimeters into the ice to search for evidence of active or past biology, such as amino acids.

    It all depends on radiation, which Europa receives a lot of, from Jupiter. The study, led by NASA scientist Tom Nordheim, modeled the radiation environment on Europa in detail, showing how it varies from location to location. That data was then combined with other data from laboratory experiments documenting how quickly various radiation doses destroy amino acids.

    Europa as seen by NASA’s Galileo spacecraft.

    Image via NASA/JPL-Caltech/SETI Institute.

    The results, published in a new paper in Nature Astronomy, showed that equatorial regions receive about 10 times more radiation dosage than middle or high latitudes. The harshest radiation zones appear as oval-shaped regions, connected at the narrow ends, that cover more than half of Europa.

    According to Chris Paranicas, a paper co-author from the Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory in Laurel, Maryland:

    This is the first prediction of radiation levels at each point on Europa’s surface and is important information for future Europa missions.

    The good news from this is that a lander in the least-radiated locations would only have to dig about 0.4 inches (1 centimeter) into the ice to find viable amino acids. In more radiated areas, the lander would need to dig about 4 to 8 inches (10 to 20 cm). Even if any organisms were dead, the amino acids would still be recognizable. As Nordheim told Space.com:

    Even in the harshest radiation zones on Europa, you really don’t have to do more than scratch beneath the surface to find material that isn’t heavily modified or damaged by radiation.

    Artist’s concept of a future lander on Europa.

    Image via NASA/JPL-Caltech.

    As Nordheim also noted:

    If we want to understand what’s going on at the surface of Europa and how that links to the ocean underneath, we need to understand the radiation. When we examine materials that have come up from the subsurface, what are we looking at? Does this tell us what is in the ocean, or is this what happened to the materials after they have been radiated?

    Kevin Hand, another co-author of the new research and project scientist for the potential Europa lander mission, elaborated a bit more:

    The radiation that bombards Europa’s surface leaves a fingerprint. If we know what that fingerprint looks like, we can better understand the nature of any organics and possible biosignatures that might be detected with future missions, be they spacecraft that fly by or land on Europa.

    Europa Clipper’s mission team is examining possible orbit paths, and proposed routes pass over many regions of Europa that experience lower levels of radiation. That’s good news for looking at potentially fresh ocean material that has not been heavily modified by the fingerprint of radiation.

    Data from the Hubble Space Telescope in 2013 showing the location of a water vapor plume.

    Image via NASA/ESA/L. Roth/SWRI/University of Cologne.

    Nordheim and his team used data from the old Galileo mission (1995-2003) and electron measurements from the even older Voyager 1 mission (Jupiter flyby in 1979).

    Since material from the subsurface ocean is thought to be able to come up to the surface through cracks or weaker areas of ice, it should be possible to sample it right on the surface without needing to drill. That would be a huge advantage, and it would be possible to send a lander to a location where there is a relatively fresh deposit not yet completely degraded by radiation. Right now, the images of Europa’s surface are not high enough resolution, but the ones from the upcoming Europa Clipper mission will be. As noted by Nordheim:

    When we get the Clipper reconnaissance, the high-resolution images – it’s just going to be a completely different picture. That Clipper reconnaissance is really key.

    Artist’s concept of the Europa Clipper mission at Europa.

    Image via NASA.

    Europa Clipper is tentatively scheduled to launch sometime in the early 2020s, and will be the first mission back to Europa since Galileo. It will perform dozens of close flybys of the moon, studying both the surface and the ocean below. Mission concepts for the lander to follow Europa Clipper are also being devised, using data from Clipper to select a landing spot. Both missions should be able to bring us closer to knowing if any kind of life exists in Europa’s dark ocean.

    Bottom line: Europa’s subsurface ocean offers the tantalizing possibility of alien life elsewhere in our solar system. Drilling through the thick ice crust on top of it for a sample would be difficult though. But now new research shows that a future lander might only have to “scratch the surface” to access any organic molecules deposited from the ocean below, in areas where there is less radiation exposure. Looking for life on Europa may actually be easier than we thought.

    Are there buildings on VENUS? UFO hunters claim newly released maps show 'huge cities and artificial structures' 

    • Images are from the Magellan probe that shipped off to Venues in 1989
    • Youtuber, mundodesconocido, created 3D interpretations of 'buildings'
    • Some of the structures appear to be giving off light 

    It seems aliens, in the eyes of UFO hunters at least, aren't content with just building on Mars. 

    Recently published images of Venus appear to show ‘huge cities, artificial structures and all kinds of elements’, according to one researcher.

    He says the buildings were created by some kind of alien race.

    Scroll down for video 

    Recently published images of Venus appear to show ‘huge cities, artificial structures and all kinds of elements’ that some say aren’t natural to the planet Martian researchers believe these buildings were created by some kind of alien race, making Venus the second planet in our solar system to be colonized

    WHAT MAKES VENUS INTERESTING? 

    Venus is the second planet from the sun, orbiting at a distance of about 67 million miles (108 million km). 

    One Venus year lasts longer than a day on Venus. 

    A year lasts 225 Earth days and the planet spins so slowly that its day lasts as 243 Earth days

    It is a dim, but hot and volcanically active planet and it spins in the opposite direction of most planets.

    YouTube and alien hunter mundodesconocido put a video together explaining the large cities he claims he found while analyzing the collection of photos.

    He even created 3D models of the structures.

    ‘Artificial bizarre shapes appear to be cities and seem to have elements that emit light,’ he said in the video.

    Mundodesconocido takes viewers on a tour through the 'great city' on Venus, showing raised structures all over the planet that could be alien apartment complexes or just craters on the surface.

    These images came from the Magellan probe that was shipped off to Venus in 1989, which arrived a little over a year later to collect data.

    Its mission was study land forms and tectonics, impact processes, erosion, deposition, chemical processes and the planets interior.

    Scott C. Waring of UFO Sightings Daily, published the YouTube video on his blog to share with these findings his followers.

    ‘Wow! This person not only found these structures, but made a CGI duplicate so we can see what it truly looks like,’ he shared.

    ‘Note, the entire…and I mean entire, surface of Venus is covered in structures.’ 

    POLES ON VENUS ARE COLDER THAN ANYWHERE ON EARTH

    Venus is the second planet from the sun, orbiting at a distance of about 67 million miles (108 million km).

    Venus is the second planet from the sun, orbiting at a distance of about 67 million miles (108 million km).

    It is a sad reality that some spacecraft like Nasa's Philae lander don't last as long as they should, while others such as Esa's Venus Express continue to surprise us.

    As part of its recent swansong, as the probe plummeted toward the planet, the Express gathered new and unexpected information about the planet's polar atmosphere.

    This data has now been studied and reveals the poles are colder than any place on Earth. 

    They are also covered with rippling atmospheric waves.

    Venus Express arrived at Venus in 2006. 

    It spent eight years orbiting the planet, greatly exceeding the mission's planned duration of 500 days, before it ran out of fuel.

    The probe then began its descent into Venus' atmosphere, before the mission lost contact with Earth in November 2014 and officially ended the following month.

    Before it plummeted down through the planet's atmosphere, the probe's measurements showed it to be rippling with atmospheric waves and, at an average temperature of -157°C (114K), is colder than anywhere on Earth. 

    These recent observations show the planet's atmosphere is much more interesting than first thought.

    During the final months of its mission, Venus Express orbited the planet low enough to measure drag from the atmosphere.

    Our previous understanding of Venus' polar atmosphere was based on observations gathered by Nasa's Pioneer Venus probe in the late 1970s. 

    These were of other parts of Venus' atmosphere, near the equator, but extrapolated to the poles to form a complete atmospheric reference model.

    Its mission was study land forms and tectonics, impact processes, erosion, deposition, chemical processes and the planets interior. At least 85 percent of the surface was found to be covered with volcanic flows, which could explain the protruding structures referred to as ‘huge cities’ in YouTube clip

    Mundodesconocido shows viewers different areas of Venus and and shows other conspiracy theorists how to find the structures on their own. These images were taken from the Magellan probe that studied land forms and tectonics, impact processes, erosion, deposition, chemical processes and the planets interior

    YouTube and alien hunter mundodesconocido put a video together explaining the large cities he found while analyzing the collection of photos and created 3D interpretations for each. ‘Artificial bizarre shapes appear to be cities and seem to have elements that emit light,’ he said in the video

    UFOs Over West Virginia Town Remind Many of Mothman

    Has the legendary Mothman returned to West Virginia? One might think so with the amount of attention being given to photographs taken in Crum, West Virginia, less than two hours from Point Pleasant, which show an unidentified flying object that could (and apparently do) appear to some to be a flying winged humanoid similar to Mothman. Is it the real deal? Why has one photo gotten so much attention when a similar flying humanoid picture just a few weeks earlier in the same city seems to be ignored? Is Crum becoming a new Mothman or UFO hotspot in West Virginia?

    “Was cutting grass in my yard today. Saw a really pretty cloud. Took two pictures of the cloud. Didn’t see anything but the cloud when I was taking the pictures! Afterwards when I noticed the strange black object in both of the pictures!”

    That’s the report to MUFON accompanying two photos (see them on MUFON here (upper left, top of cloud) and here(closeup)) taken on the evening of July 25, 2018. The magnified version looks more like an object than a flying humanoid, prompting comments on some sites showing it that it resembles a ship, a kite, a drone or a balloon. On the flying humanoid side, there’s suggestions of Mothman or a human in a flying suit, glider wing or parachute.

    Easy to identify close up and in daylight, but can it be mistaken for Mothman at night?

    “I was taking pictures of the clouds and sunset in Crum West Virginia around 5:30 pm June 15, 2018. At the time of the photo there was no birds of any kind flying. I didn’t even notice it until later when I was checking my photos. I took dozens of photos that day. And this was the only image with this strange dark looking object in it.”

    This photo (see it here) looks more like a flying human but could also be a large bird or a camera anomaly, especially since it reportedly only appeared in one of a series of photos. That could explain why it hasn’t received as much attention as the later photograph.

    Why Crum? The southwestern West Virginia town is tiny (population around 182), close to the borders of Ohio and Kentucky and about 100 miles from Point Pleasant. Prior this, its claim to fame is “Crum: The Novel,” a fictional account of life in Crum written by a former resident (Lee Maynard) who was accused of basing it too closely on real people.

    Easy to identify close up and in daylight, but can it be mistaken for Mothman at night?

    The speculations that these photos might be humans in flying suits or parachutes comes on the heels of an article by Nick Redfern in Mysterious Universe which details how some people believed at least some of the 1966 Point Pleasant Mothman sightings were actually Green Beret parachutists wearing luminous paint in secret training exercises before being sent to Vietnam. Parachuting, parasailing, personal gliders, jet wings and jet packs have come a long way since 1966. Could these new sightings in Crum be something similar?

    Crum residents would be wise to keep their eyes on the skies if they want to prove that Mothman or some other flying entity has moved in and they want to capture it, get rid of it or turn it into an annual festival.

    The Mysterious Bradshaw Ranch v1

    High Strangeness at the Mysterious Bradshaw Ranch

    One of the most popular destinations in the state of Arizona is the town of Sedona, which over the years has accrued a reputation as quite the mecca for New Agers and paranormal researchers from all over the country as well as droves of tourists every year. Arizona, and in particular this area is rather well-known for a high concentration of UFO sightings and for the mysterious energy vortices said to dot the landscape here, where earth energies crackle and which are believed to confer all manner of health benefits, as well as said to aid in meditation and self reflection. It is largely because of these alleged magical vortices that a bustling business of spiritual healing tours and metaphysical medicine outfits have sprung up here, and one can already see that Sedona is already a rather strange and unique place in an already rather unique and strange state. However Sedona is also the home to a very unusual patch of land where there have long been reported all manner of high strangeness, from UFOs, to ghosts, to dinosaurs, and more.

    Go off the beaten path for while, off down a remote unpaved, rough dirt road just 12 miles outside Sedona in the Verde Valley, and you will be met with the site of a rather large, abandoned ranch, now inaccessible and blocked of by an intimidating gate plastered with signs from the U.S. Forest Service warning away trespassers. The desert scrub and wilderness area around the ranch is as remote and uninhabited as you can get, and the now uninhabited ranch itself has devolved into a feral place overgrown with weeds and partially devoured by the landscape. It was obviously once an expansive and successful ranch, so what is this place and why is it just sitting out there forgotten to be slowly reclaimed by the ravenous wilderness around it? For that we have to go back to the beginning, back to 1945.

    Sedona, Arizona

    It was in 1945 that a Hollywood stuntman and actor named Bob Bradshaw moved out to the Sedona area, where he opened a modest business in the form of a photography shop. With his Hollywood connections, Bradshaw also had a hand in many of the Westerns that were en vogue at the time and which favored the deserts and canyons of the area for sets, with over 50 full length features made in this vicinity over the years, and which helped to revitalize the area. With his new found influx of cash and good-standing amongst the locals, in 1960 Bradshaw purchased a 140-acre parcel of land out in the Verde Valley at a place that was then known as Bitter Creek, and this ranch and its old adobe house would also go on to become a popular place to shoot movies, such as the 1967 Elvis Presley film Stay Away Joe and others.

    In the 1990s, Bradshaw’s son, John Bradshaw, turned the land into a more functional, actual working ranch, and it also became popular as a recreation spot for camping, horseback riding, and other outdoor activities. At the time this was a secluded place of natural beauty, with a veneer of Hollywood laid over it, but things would begin to take a turn for the strange beginning from 1992, when a series of escalating strange phenomena began to creep across the ranch.

    Bradshaw Ranch

    It supposedly began with John Bradshaw’s wife, Linda, who claimed to begin seeing mysterious orbs of light in the sky over the ranch, as well as sudden bright flashes with no discernible cause and streaking mystery lights. This was perhaps to be expected because the region was already long known as a hotspot for UFO sightings, but things would escalate quickly and further branch out into the weird. As if UFOs and anomalous lights in the sky were not odd enough, Linda claimed that odd comets would move across the property shooting beams of light, and that the place was crawling with barely glimpsed shadow people and other entities. Her and her son would also claim to have had a rather far-out encounter with actual aliens on the property, which she would see outside of her window one evening and describe thus:

    Strolling past the window were four short-statured aliens wearing tight-fitting one-piece uniforms of a light tan color. They were what are typically called the Zeta Reticuli (also known as the Grays), only these appeared to be a bit more ashen-colored, almost white. Once the beings were out of sight and the witnesses recomposed themselves, the three of them jumped into their car and sped to the house where I was sleeping. I remember so vividly how my son vigorously shook my arm to wake me up. I can still hear the trepidation in his voice as he said, “Mom, wake up. They’re here!” I raised up and said, “Who’s here?” He exclaimed, “The aliens, Mom.”

    The next day she allegedly went out to investigate the area where the entities had been seen and found tiny footprints in the ground, which they took video footage of. On top of aliens there were also sighings made of large, hairy Bigfoot-like creatures on the property, in particular one Linda nicknamed “Big Girl,” which was seen frequently, and other less discernible creatures. Even stranger than these sightings were accounts of spotting what were described as actual dinosaurs at the ranch, with Linda herself claiming one time to have seen a 5-foot-tall bipedal lizard with a long tail standing on a dirt path one evening. These apparent “dinosaurs,” purportedly left large, reptilian tracks that were sometimes found on the property as well.

    Linda recorded these and all manner of other strangeness at the ranch, such as livestock and other animals falling ill for no apparent reason or the manes of her horses torn off, and after several years of this in 1995 compiled it all into a book called Merging Dimensions: The Opening Portals of Sedona, along with UFOlogist Tom Dongo. The book also features numerous photos that were captured at the ranch, with many of the strange phenomena not seen until the film was developed. UFOs, aliens, Bigfoot, Shadow People, living dinosaurs, what in the world is going on here? Linda Bradshaw believes that all of these disparate phenomena are the result of some sort of inter-dimensional doorway that has for whatever reason opened up at the ranch, and through which spew all manner of entities. She would say of her theory:

    I believe these openings have always been on our plane and they’ve perhaps been the portals to allow others in, but if one were to ask my opinion of my experiences regarding this magical place, I would say that not only are they being allowed in, but they are coming in in great numbers. I would also love to say that only compassionate beings of light are scooting through these portals, but this does not always seem to be the case. I have come face to face with a few decidedly nasty beings.

    The ranch subsequently became a haven for paranormal researchers, and it was featured on numerous TV programs, with orb and UFO activity commonly caught on film at the location. Readings taken at the ranch also showed the anomaly that it had a much stronger magnetic field than the surrounding area, by some estimates around 500 times greater, although why this is or what connection it has to the purported phenomena no one knows.

    In May 2003 the mystery was deepened and conspiracy theories were spawned when the U.S. government suddenly and without explanation purchased the ranch and quickly had it locked off from the rest of the world. Locals claimed that there were frequently military personnel seen around the area, and in addition to the signs keeping people out were also armed guards said to patrol the area and turn people away in no uncertain terms. Unverified reports exist of hikers being confronted and turned away by heavily armed guards with no visible identification or insignia, or even more ominously chased off the property by either guards of all terrain vehicles that are all black with no noticeable markings. Dongo said of this in his book Mysterious Sedona:

    A machine gun, usually an M-16 (or in some cases semi-automatic pistols) is then leveled at the hikers. By the tone of the voice of the “soldiers” the hiker(s) is left with no doubt that he will be shot on the spot if he does not turn around, retrace his steps, and rapidly leave the area. Those looking for hard evidence of these claims won’t find it. There are plenty of stories of suspicious activity, missing persons, and aliens and UFOs spotted in conjunction with soldiers, but no substantiated evidence exists to prove these theories. Military activity in the area could very well be routine training exercises and those hikers asked to turn around may be done for their own safety.

    It seems odd for this to be the case with just a ranch out in the middle of nowhere, so why is this? Well, that depends on who you ask. For some it is because the U.S. Forest Service is looking to preserve valuable Native American archeological sites in the area, but of course considering all of the strange phenomena reported from here and the rumors of portals and vortices, there are others who think that the government confiscated the land in order to cover it all up.

    It is hard to say just what is going on with all of this, but Bradshaw Ranch has continued to be a hotspot for the paranormal nevertheless, with hikers and tours that skirt the property often coming back with myriad tales of the weird. A very strange experience supposedly happened during the filming of a 2013 episode of Discovery Channel’s show Uncovering Aliens, with this episode focused on the ranch. According to the report, at some point a man named Steven Jones wandered away from the crew and onto the actual property of the ranch. When he returned half and hour later he was apparently in a daze, and he claimed that he had heard disembodied voices all around him and that he had missing time, and making it all the more bizarre was that his watch had reportedly stopped working. This was not put in the final episode, but it probably should have been. What happened to him out there? No one knows, and it just adds to the rest of the lore on this very strange location.

    What is going on at Bradshaw Ranch? Is this all just kooky conspiracy tales, tall tales, and fiction? If any of it is real, then is it as Linda Bradshaw says, and there is perhaps some sort of interdimensional phenomenon at work here? If so, then why does it congregate to this one place? It is interesting to note the extremely wide range of different types of phenomena reported from here. Orbs, spook lights, UFOs, Bigfoot, aliens, dinosaurs, and others, all of them coexisting in this one patch of high strangeness, gravitating to this place for inscrutable reasons. Why should that be? Also worthy of note is that although the ranch had been there for years before Bradshaw even came along, why is it that the disturbances did not begin until 1992? What activated it, if any of it even exists at all? Why did the governement buy up the land and then prohibit access? Whether this is all urban legend, conspiracies, interdimensional portals, or something even stranger, Bradshaw Ranch certainly inhabits its own little corner of the strange in a state already steeped in the bizarre.

    SCIENTISTS SAY—AT LEAST ONE ADVANCED ALIEN CIVILIZATION MAY EXIST IN THE MILKY WAY

    Based on their research, scientists have demonstrated the possibility that at a galactic scale there is at least ONE extraterrestrial civilization that has the necessary means of communication with Earth in our galaxy—the Milky way.
    Controversy or not but… American scientists Luis A. Anchordoqui, Susanna Weber and Jorge F. Soriano demonstrated the possibility that an alien civilization capable of communicating with humans exists in the Milky Way Galaxy, according to an article published on the website of the University of Cornell.

    Image Credit

    Experts based their research on the Drake formula in order to estimate the number of civilizations in our galaxy—the Milky Way—likely to possess technology that could intercept or transmit radio emissions.

    According to their calculations, at a galactic scale, there is at least ONE extraterrestrial civilization that has the necessary means of communication with Earth.

    Furthermore, scientists compare the number of planets where there could be advanced civilizations capable of contact with the rate of birth of celestial bodies that are within the habitable zone around their star. However, scientists note that powerful gamma ray bursts could endanger the existence of alien life. According to experts, the TESS (Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite) and JWST (James Webb Space Telescope), which are preparing for a historic launch, will allow them to verify the results of their work

    And while scientists say that at least one alien civilization may exist out there, they have explained that the fact that the percentage of intelligent alien civilizations in the Milky Way is extremely small—about 0.5% when compared to the total number of alien civilizations that may exist in the Universe, which is something that significantly complicates their search for our cosmic neighbors.

    This fact, according to them, is one of the reasons why we have not yet found aliens to this day. Searching for clues leading to the discovery of other civilizations, according to Soriano and his colleagues, will only be possible in the future when scientists discover more of Earth’s “twin” planets.

    In the research paper the scientific trio notes:

    A new arsenal of data will certainly provide an ideal testing ground to improve our understanding about: (i) the occurrence of exoplanets in the habitable zone, (ii) the early star formation rate models, and (iii) the GRB phenomenology. The past few years have witnessed the discovery of more and more rocky planets that are larger and heftier than Earth.

    Finding the Earth-twins is a higher order challenge, because these smaller planets produce fainter signals and hence only a few have been discovered. Technology to detect and image Earth-like planets has been developed for use of the next generation space telescopes. The Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS) is NASA’s next step in the search for planets outside of our solar system, including those that could support life.

    The NASA roadmap will subsequently continue with the launch of the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) and perhaps the proposed Wide Field Infrared Survey Telescope – Astrophysics Focused Telescope Assets (WFIRST-AFTA) early in the next decade. The ability to detect alien life may still be years or more away, but the quest is underway.

    In 2016, scientists adapted the Drake Equation with data from NASA’s Kepler satellite on habitable planets in the cosmos. Researchers modified the Drake Equation from detailing the number of extraterrestrial civilizations that exist now, to about the chance of our civilization being the only one ever existed.

    The research indicates that unless the odds of intelligent life forms evolving on habitable planets are extremely low,  life on Earth is not the only one that evolved to an advanced stage.
    Scientists explain that the chance of an advanced civilization developing would need to be less tan one in 10 trillion, for our civilization to be the only intelligent one in the known universe.

    Is that Mars lake way too salty for life?

    Mars’ south pole ice sheets/NASA

    Hugh Ross thinks so. From Tyler O’Neil at PJ Media:

    On Wednesday, media outlets breathlessly reported that scientists have discovered a “lake of liquid water” on Mars. Fox News called it a “game changer” in the search for alien life, and Yahoo News reported something similar. The New York Times headline spelled out the implications: “Raising the Potential for Alien Life.”

    Hugh Ross

    He quotes Hugh Ross,

    Ph.D. astronomer Hugh Ross told PJ Media that these reports twisted the truth. In reality, the scientists found what could be a lake, but Ross noted that it certainly does not contain life. The peer-reviewed study published in the journal Science reported on findings from 22 planetary astronomers in Italy working on data from the MARSIS (Mars Advanced Radar for Subsurface and Ionospheric Sounding). The word “lake” is a gross mischaracterization of their tenuous discovery.

    "What we found is some kind of sludge, or it could be localized brine pools," the astronomer Ross, president and founder of Christian apologetics group Reasons to Believe, told PJ Media on Thursday, elaborating on his own article. "That's a whole lot different than you can take a speedboat on."

    The astronomers used radio waves to discover a small, very bright echo suggesting something underneath Mars' south polar ice cap. The echo was consistent with the radar reflectivity of liquid water.

    Here's the catch: the "lake" was buried under 1.5 kilometers of ice, the thickest part of the south polar ice cap. The pressure from this ice actually raises the temperature of the likely liquid water layer — to -68°Celsius (-90°Fahrenheit). That's right, this "water" is liquid at a point far below freezing. "The only way it remains liquid is if it's super-saturated with perchloric salts," Ross explained.

    "This is not a possible site for life, it's way too cold and way too salty," the astronomer told PJ Media. "Even the most extreme forms of life on Earth are not able to handle this much salt and cold."

    That's not to say the discovery isn't remarkable. Ross explained that the radar "found a spot that was too bright to be ice or rock — only liquid water would reflect atthhat surface." The researchers admitted this is an estimate, however — "we can't prove for sure it's water."

    As for life on Mars, Ross said scientists will certainly find fossils, but that these fossils and other life remains will be from Earth, not Mars.

    "I've been on written record since the 1980s," the astronomer explained. "If we look hard enough, we will find remains of life on Mars. We know that Earth life has been deposited on Mars through meteorite transport." How does it get there? Meteoroids hitting Earth would dislodge soil, and quite a few of them would have made it all the way to Mars.

    But life — at least life like it is on Earth — cannot have ever thrived on Mars, he insisted. While Mars was "much warmer than it is today and much wetter than it is today" back about 4 billion years ago, any liquid water was "ephemeral."

    Ross explained that Mars experienced a "carbonate catastrophe" that destroyed water on Mars. In his book "More than a Theory: Revealing a Testable Model for Creation," Ross wrote that "the Late Heavy Bombardment 3.85 billion years ago brought a lot of water and carbon dioxide to Mars," which reacted with Mars's surface rocks, depleting the Martian atmosphere of carbon dioxide and water. "Thus Mars was swiftly and permanently transformed into a dry, cold wasteland."

    Mars also has an unstable rotation axis, unlike Earth. "If you've got a liquid drop of water on the surface of Mars, it evaporates because the freezing point and the boiling point on Mars are the same temperature," Ross explained. The boiling point of water drops even on high mountains on Earth. "Mars has such a thin atmosphere that water cannot be stable on the surface."

    Even though liquid water may exist on Mars, Ross argued that the search for extraterrestrial life needs to involve more factors. "Water is only one of many requirements for life to be possible. Given how much water there is in the universe, that's not a good strategy," he explained. Furthermore, "too much water and too much carbon are a problem for life."

    Earth, which Ross described as a kind of "goldilocks planet," has about 1200 times less carbon than what is typical for rocky planets of its size.

    While Christians mostly doubt the possibility of extraterrestrial life, Ross argued that Bible believers have options on the subject, while atheists do not. "If you come from a perspective that God loves to create and He's compulsively creative, then aliens are possible. If you take the position that God' doesn't waste miracles, this is the only planet."

    "From an atheistic perspective, however, you've only got one option — life has got to be everywhere," Ross quipped.

    Ross, who has posited a "testable creation model," melding scientific theory with Bible interpretation, urged NASA to return to the moon. Referencing the human life remains that made it to Mars, he added, "We know that the moon has received 100 times as much as Mars has."

    "We need to go back to the moon because the moon has the fossils of Earth's first life," the astronomer urged. "We can go to the moon and determine who got the life model right: theists or non-theists."

    "That could be a real coup for NASA if they were able to prove who got the origin of life model right," Ross declared. "I think every taxpayer should be excited about that."

    The news copy around life on Mars generally sounds as though it is written for people who have an emotional need to believe that there is life on Mars, whether there is or not. Call it a specialized version of the Drake Equation. The last place to look for reasonable skepticism often turns out to be science writing.

    See also: But if we don’t find life on either Mars or Europa… … are we justified in drawing the conclusion that life is just not very common in the galaxy and that we are special? As opposed to They Must Be Out There Somewhere, experienced as an act of faith? What makes that act of faith “science”?

    If we are alone in the universe, shouldn’t that make us feel more special? Instead of meaningless? How exactly did we get from “alone” to “meaningless” via eloquence from tenured pundits? Where do we buy return tickets?

    “Behold, countless Earths sail the galaxies … that is, if you would only believe …

    and

    Don’t let Mars fool you. Those exoplanets teem with life!

    One Response to Is that Mars lake way too salty for life?

    1. OK, so this is really a 2 part problem.

      Part 1. Assuming Mars was WAY more Earthlike a couple billion years ago, Mars had the same problems as Earth in developing (being GIVEN?) primitive life.

      Part 2. Without useful van Allen Belts, Mars was then stripped of its atmosphere. Without a protective atmosphere to form the Biosphere, whatever simple, primitive Life that may have developed as pond scum in tidal pools would have died a thousand deaths from galactic radiation, hurricane force winds, and cold deep enough to freeze any surface water.

      So that pretty much leaves us with the freaks that on Earth are called Exremophiles. And as on Earth, Extremophiles are an END STATE, not a development path. That is, surface life deforms itself to invade environments in which life was not intended to live.

      This means that Mars is to be considered MUCH more dangerously INFECTED with nasty little bugs than The Moon. This is just another reason Earthlings should never ever set foot on Mars. And never ever bring back any Mars rocks for direct analysis here on Mother Earth. But humans are smart little critters, and sending REALLY sophisticated MACHINES to locate and analyze really interesting Mars rocks on Mars is clearly cheaper, faster, and MUCH less dangerous than sending humans with specimen bags.

    One of the things I like about the film is the way the whole world reacts to the first contact with aliens.

    I think it really is an accurate representation of how human beings would react as a group.

    Gigantic Algae Bloom 'Whirlpool' Appears in Baltic Sea

    NASA's Operational Land Imager (OLI) on Landsat 8 acquired a natural-color image of a gigantic swirling bloom in the Baltic Sea.

    The massive 'whirlpool' is more than 15 miles across, which mean Manhattan Island could fit inside it.

    There is no explanation for what's causing the strange pattern.

    According to NASA, an ocean eddy may be pumping nutrients up from the depths.

    These "dead zones" have also accompanied the spread of such algae blooms in the Baltic Sea in recent years.

    The Sun Pyramid in Bosnia - Knowledge about the mysterious place of power

    The Sun Pyramid in Bosnia - Knowledge about the mysterious place of power

    The "Sun Pyramid" is probably the most impressive appearance of the pyramid complex in Bosnia.

    Situated on the edge of the city of Visoko, it towers above the landscape. Visoko, a city with more than 20,000 inhabitants - Location: 30 km in the north of Sarajevo, the capital of Bosnia.

    In its size and monumental splendor, the Pyramid of the Sun - or Sun pyramid - far surpasses the impression that the Great Pyramid of Giza leaves on the viewer in Egypt. The Pyramid of the Sun, a hill with regular pyramidal geometry, with a cover of artificially produced concrete.

    In April 2005 the pyramids were discovered in Bosnia by Dr. Sam Osmanagich, a world-famous pyramid researcher. Shortly afterward, scientists began non-invasive archaeological research. Field inspections, aerial photo reconnaissance and the study of historical documents and maps as well as modern topographic visualizations.

    The sun pyramid impresses with a height of 220 meters and is thus a third higher than the large pyramid of Giza. This makes it one of the highest pyramids on earth today! According to the discoverer, the Pyramid of the Sun was built by a tribe of pre-Illyrians, which was only documented in the Balkans since the 6th century B.C. but was said to have lived there well before 12,000 B.C. - before the end of the last ice age.

    Bosnian Pyramid of the Sun is one of the largest ancient structures on Earth

    The latest research and scientific laboratory tests revealed a date of origin around 28,000 B.C. This is proven by a radio-carbon study of a found enclosed leaf, which was carried out in 2010 in several laboratory studies in various countries in Europe. They all came to the same conclusion. Already at the beginning of May 2006 the customer of the sensational pyramid finds reached the experts in Egypt. PyAly Abd Alla Barakat, one of Egypt's best-known pyramid experts, traveled to Visoko to explore - what these discoveries are all about.

    The then President Sulejman Tihic also visited this "new discovery" - he was accompanied by 15 researchers from many countries - among them representatives from Peru, Egypt and China.

    The excavation started in 2008 and revealed fantastic archaeological finds! Discoveries: Hewn stones, wondrous ceramic cast megalith formations weighing tons and widely ramified tunnel systems. All pyramids are connected by this underground tunnel system.

    A tunnel system whose meaning and purpose can only be guessed today. Inside the tunnel system, there are several large megaliths weighing tons. The megaliths contain characters and symbols whose meaning has not yet been fully or at least partially discovered.

    Bosnia And Herzegovina Visoko Bosnian Pyramid Claims

    Again, there are clear indications that an exclusive natural or only human creation of the pyramids in Bosnia was highly unlikely, if not impossible.

    All signs suggest that in prehistoric times there was a high culture there, which had excellent possibilities to produce materials whose quality today can only be reached or surpassed by modern production processes in a few very highly civilized regions of the world.

    A prime example of this is the material that makes up the main large geometrically shaped blocks of the solar pyramid. Cemented geopolymer concrete, which in its density has almost already achieved the best quality concrete that can be produced worldwide today. And this 28,000 years ago! It thus exhibits extremely high compressive strength and stability.

    Prof Dr. Joseph Davidovits, the founder of the French Institute of Polymers, prepared an electron microscopic analysis back in 2008: "The chemical composition of ancient cement is based on a lime/potassium geopolymer concrete."

    Sonnenpyramide Bosnien Visoko Pyramid Of The Sun

    Prof. Davidovits is considered THE expert in materials science and holds more than 50 patents in this field. His expert status is complemented by other award-winning books on the construction of pyramids in Egypt. Fact: The builders of these ancient buildings at that time used a gravel conglomerate as the base material. This is identical to the material used in the construction of the tunnel facilities (Ravne Tunnel).

    Later tests brought this connection. Gravel conglomerate" mixed on site with water, an excellently composed binder, and gravel mass. This liquid porridge was poured directly at the place of use at the solar pyramid - in sandstone molds under the influence of high heat and pressure. Numerous well-known international and national scientific institutes confirm the presumed production and composition of these finds in a highly precise manner.

    The foundation structure of the solar pyramid - geopolymer cement blocks. A cover/cover made of geopolymer plates. These panels are joined/glued together with a binder that withstands the harshest loads. Highly visible to the naked eye. Modern cameras precisely document these fine white splices.

    Energetic characteristics

    The Solar Pyramid - an energy-producing prehistoric building! An extremely strong energy beam emerges from the solar pyramid. Surprisingly, with increasing distance to the solar pyramid, this energy beam does not become weaker - as one might actually expect - but becomes many times stronger and more intense on its way.

    The exit point of this mysterious energy was located by measurements of anthropologist Prof. Paolo Debertolis in 2010 at a depth of 2440 meters below the solar pyramid. The radius of the energy beam is as much as 4.5 meters - that is a measurable 9 meters in diameter. Consistent energy emissions - for over 28,000 years.

    In the search for the source of this energy, it was discovered that the source of the frequency was probably a metallic, parabolically shaped "plate" with a diameter of 800 meters. According to Prof. Debertolis, this enigmatic object generates electromagnetic waves of exactly 28,300 Hz, a uniform sinusoidal curve that produces longitudinal electromagnetic waves concentrated 15 meters above the top of the solar pyramid.

    The findings and research results were largely confirmed by the investigations of the Croatian physicist Dr. Slobodan Mizdrak - however, in his opinion, the origin can only be assumed.

    Dr. Debertolis assumes that a prehistoric civilization could have created the inexplicable "energy machine" under the mountain. Several finds from the tunnel system suggest that the builders of the corridors had an immense knowledge about the functioning of pyramids.

    For the discoverer of the "Valley of the Bosnian Pyramids" archaeologist Dr. Semir Osmanagich, the amazing energy phenomenon is the first proof of extraterrestrial technology on our planet.

    It seems that the pyramid builders created a perpetuum mobile a long time ago and that this "energy machine" is still working. The extremely hard, ancient concrete blocks, which weigh millions of tons and cover the pyramids, serve among other things to focus the energy generated.

    The pyramid of the sun works like a huge generator. A Free Energy Machine! The measurable 9 m diameter beam directly at the top of the summit plateau represents the discharge of the produced energy. This energy beam is topographically measured slightly different from the actual center of the pyramidal building.

    Current measurements of further experts speak of energy vortexes, which move continuously in a spiral form from the bottom upwards and move in their locations or cannot always be measured at the same location.

    Spiritual

    The emergence of the "Bosnian pyramids" solely by man or nature is more than unlikely in view of the possibilities available at that time and on the other hand by the laws of nature. A hybrid project with guidance and monitoring through extraterrestrial influence, help, and support would be conceivable and more obvious. With what intention, however, that is still unexplored, although several theories are being discussed.

    Even if it may seem like a science fiction story at first... many science fiction elements of the 70s are now part of our everyday life reality. The results of many other researchers clearly show that the solar pyramid has a special and remarkably strong electromagnetic field which differs significantly in its strength from the other hills around it. The solar pyramid pulsates and is acting like a living being.

    The well-known English physicist Dr. Harry Oldfield took fascinating energy photos with a special camera, which clearly and credibly prove that the solar pyramid continuously builds up a strong energy in its interior, further amplifies it and radiates this energy vertically upwards at the saturation point. The pictures of the neighboring hills, on the other hand, show horizontal, uniform energy radiation throughout.

    Local connoisseurs of the excavation sites lead us enthusiastically to a "healing stone". A large excavation site, a ca. 150 sqm exposed part of the cover of the Pyramid of the Sun. Easily accessible via 200 steps. Many visitors there feel the very special energy. It is good if they settle down on these surfaces and spend some time in meditation and silence.

    Gentle pulsation, female energy, deep calmness and inner peace - release from inner pressure, so tensions and consequently, also pain can be released. Many visitors report very impressive experiences.

    The special energy and frequency capabilities of the solar pyramid support our systems very competently here. From the cell frequency, over the heart rate - up to the brain frequency - liberating and energizing.

    The 28 kHz beam at the top of the solar pyramid, a widespread energy spiral network that moves in and around the solar pyramid in vortexes, natural beings and orbs that are perceived by clairvoyant and clairvoyant visitors and that are present in particularly large numbers in these fantastic light fields - all this inspires energy-sensitive visitors from all over the world, who now flock there in droves to experience the places of power, to experience transformation - and to return home inspired as a "new human being" with a changed, finer perception. Whoever meditated for several hours up there on the top of the solar pyramid in the energy ray knows how fine and very special a healing change can occur.

    Pyramids In Europe Visoko Great Pyramid Of Giza

    Pre-History and Pre-Astronautics

    For some time now, border science areas have been investigating phenomena on this earth for which the technical materialistic view of the world provides little or no explanation. Or even deliberately misinformed. Thus, there are numerous books and specialist publications on the market that report very special contexts of phenomena that cannot be explained normally (Mann, who built a gold-plated replica of the Great Pyramid, reveals mysterious energy (videos)).

    Among other things about the topics of extraterrestrial influence on the emergence of mankind and our planet. The global pyramid system, in particular, stimulates the imagination and also the intention of research into these special structural structures.

    And often the connection with UFOs, intelligent star races and their existence and work on this planet earth emerges. Also in the area of the solar pyramid - many cameras of my seminar participants show unknown phenomena, well photographable unknown flying objects, just - UFOs. Sensitively gifted people with a high level of visual perception explore the "moving" airspace with enthusiasm, as even simple locals confirm.

    Conclusion: For Dr. Sam Osmanagich, the solar pyramid is an ingenious energy generator - built by a sophisticated civilization. The use of "free energy" (see Nikolas Tesla and others) is the best-kept secret on our planet.

    And this secret must be rediscovered and solved by the right people so that we can finally stop our self-destructive energy production. We can take the first step on this path by already using these energies - at least spiritually - for our spiritual and spiritual development.

    NASA has been covering up the truth about life on Mars

    Image: NASA has been covering up the truth about life on Mars

    (Natural News) NASA announced recently that it discovered organic molecules on Mars. In a press release, the agency said that the Curiosity rover discovered new evidence in rocks suggesting the planet may have supported ancient life, along with new evidence in the planet’s atmosphere related to the search to find current life on the planet.

    The findings include organic molecules in sedimentary rocks that are billions of years old found near the planet’s surface, and they also discovered seasonal variations in atmospheric methane levels.

    Although it’s being touted as a “new” discovery, Mike Adams says NASA had proof there was microbial life on Mars as far back as 1976, when the Viking mission found it with mass spec equipment.

    On that occasion, Gilbert Levin, who was tasked with heading the mission’s life detection experiment, said that space probes found signs of life on Mars but it was covered up. The scientist has been critical of NASA ever since. He theorized that microorganisms may have made their way to Mars in a frozen and dried state after being injected into space from meteor strikes. Carl Sagan even reportedly congratulated this scientist on what many considered one of the greatest discoveries in science history, but it was quickly covered up.

    In a video posted to the free speech platform REAL.video, Mike Adams talks about how NASA covered that up for political reasons, which begs the question of what else they might be covering up. He also talks about why carbon in the atmosphere is essential to life rather than the pollutant that the global warming camp would have you believe.

    Adams believes that NASA preferred to slowly leak out the possibility of life on Mars discovered in the 1970s rather than catching the public off guard with the finding because they feared global chaos across various religions.

    Organic molecules contain carbon, like the molecules in our body. Organic molecules are generally created by living organisms, such as plants. Adams points out that what they found were bigger molecules, which does support the idea that life is or was on Mars. All organic molecules can break down over time due to exposure to heat, radiation, and other conditions, which means what they found could, in theory, have been created fairly recently.


    Getting closer to the truth

    Could life even be there right now creating these molecules?

    It’s not impossible when you consider the presence of water under the ice caps on Mars. Scientists reported in a study released this week in the journal Science that they found a lake under the surface of an ice cap situated at Mars’ south pole. The lake, which spans 12.5 miles, was found using the MARSIS radar and is believed to be a legitimate body of water rather than mere runoff from ice.

    Scientists say that it could be our best clue at the possibility of life on Mars. Unlike the planet’s surface, which is considered inhospitable to life, the lake could well prove to be a good environment for microbial life to thrive. A similar lake found below the ice in East Antarctica on Earth, Lake Vostok, is home to thousands of species of fungi and bacteria.

    The lead scientist of NASA’s Mars Exploration Program, Michael Meyer, said: “Are there signs of life on Mars? We don’t know, but these results tell us we are on the right track.”

    NASA verdoezelt de waarheid over leven op Mars. Bekijk deze video

    De Amerikaanse ruimtevaartorganisatie NASA kondigde onlangs aan organische moleculen te hebben ontdekt op Mars.

    Marsrover Curiosity heeft materiaal gevonden dat het bestaan van leven op de rode planeet, in ieder geval in een ver verleden, aannemelijk maakt.

    Hoewel wordt gesproken van een ‘nieuwe’ ontdekking, stelt Mike Adams van Natural News dat de NASA al in 1976 bewijs voor microbieel leven op Mars heeft ontdekt, met de onbemande Vikingsondes.

    Politieke redenen

    Hoofdonderzoeker van de Vikingmissie Gilbert Levin stelde dat de ruimtesondes bewijs voor leven hadden gevonden op Mars, maar dat het in de doofpot werd gestopt.

    Hij theoretiseerde dat micro-organismen mogelijk via meteorieten op de planeet waren aanbeland.

    Volgens Adams verdoezelde de NASA de waarheid om politieke redenen. Je kunt je afvragen wat het agentschap nog meer voor ons verborgen houdt.

    Wereldwijde chaos en paniek

    Adams meent dat NASA het publiek in de jaren zeventig niet wilde vertellen dat er leven op Mars was gevonden omdat men bang was dat het zou leiden tot wereldwijde chaos en paniek.

    De kans is groot dat er ook nu nog levensvormen zijn die organische moleculen achterlaten. Wetenschappers hebben namelijk een enorm ondergronds meer ontdekt op Mars.

    Een soortgelijk meer is ontdekt onder Antarctica en daar bevinden zich duizenden soorten schimmels en bacteriën.

    ER GEBEUREN LANGZAMERHAND TE VEEL KRANKZINNIGE DINGEN OP AARDE ( VIDEO )

    De bewoners van een kustplaats in de Amerikaanse staat North Carolina gaan ’s avonds slapen en wanneer ze wakker worden is het strand compleet verdwenen. 

    En een 80-jarige Chinees gaat voor een wandeling en verdwijnt van het ene op het andere moment in de grond. 


    Wanneer je verbanden gaat leggen tussen vreemde gebeurtenissen die zich wereldwijd voordoen, dan krijg je een compleet ander beeld van de wereld dan wanneer je naar iedere gebeurtenis afzonderlijk kijkt.


    En dat laatste is wat er in het algemeen gebeurt en dus kijkt bijna niemand naar het grotere beeld. 

    Zoals bijvoorbeeld wat er enkele dagen geleden gebeurde in de Amerikaanse staat North Carolina, waar van de ene op de andere dag een compleet strand verdween. De ene dag was het er nog gewoon, de andere dag worden mensen wakker en wrijven zich vol verbazing in de ogen. 

    De “experts” zijn er uiteraard als de kippen bij om met een “logische verklaring” te komen, zoals de wind die uit een bepaalde hoek komt, maar voor de lokale bewoners klinkt dat als een vreemd en ongeloofwaardig verhaal als het strand van het ene op het andere moment is verdwenen. 

    In de volgende video van Secureteam wordt daar aandacht aan besteed, maar ook aan vergelijkbare situaties elders. Gebieden waar in één klap de zee zich zover teru trekt dat er enorme droge vlaktes ontstaan waar heel kort geleden de zee was. 

    En wanneer je al die gebeurtenissen op een rij zet, dan zie je duidelijk dat er “iets” aan de hand is, waardoor al dit soort dingen wordt veroorzaakt. 

    Tyler van Secureteam staat wel open voor veel dingen, maar is toch ook een vrij nuchtere man die niet zomaar wat uitkraamt. 

    Maar, ook hij begint nu toch enigszins bezorgd te klinken over zaken zoals de enorme scheuren die in de grond verschijnen, de vreemde geluiden in de lucht en de verdwijnende zee of stranden. 

    Ook hij vraagt zich nu hardop af of er niet bepaalde krachten inwerken op onze planeet die dit veroorzaken en dat er een verband moet zijn tussen al die vreemde dingen die nu plaatsvinden. 

    Dingen die 20 jaar geleden niet of nauwelijks voorkwamen, maar nu al worden beschouwd als een normaal onderdeel van ons leven. Zoals de bekende sinkholes die overal op aarde spontaan ontstaan en die we nu al eigenlijk heel gewoon vinden. Als je 20 jaar geleden iemand had gevraagd wat een sinkhole was, dan hadden ze je heel verbaasd aangekeken. 

     
    Iedere dag opnieuw verschijnen er vreemde beelden van onze lucht. Beelden die dingen laten zien die voor ons normale mensen absoluut niet gewoon zijn. 

    Zoals onlangs te zien was bij Mr. MB333 die een foto kreeg opgestuurd van een abonnee uit Australië. De foto is gemaakt in de staat Victoria en liet de volgende bizarre lucht zien. En nee, dit is geen jet hole zoals "experts" dan weer roepen.

    xxx

    Enkele dagen geleden verscheen er in de buurt van de plaats Nizhny Novgoro in Rusland een enorme sinkhole van het ene op het andere moment. 

    Een gat met een doorsnede van 32 en een diepte van 50 meter. Zoals gewoonlijk heeft men geen idee wat dit veroorzaakt.


    xxx

    Of wat te denken van het volgende: 

    Je rijdt rustig over de weg in je Toyota SUV in Sheridan, een voorstad van Denver in Colorado, en het volgende moment verdwijn je met auto en al in een sinkhole. 

    Gelukkig is de vrouwelijke bestuurder er dit keer goed vanaf gekomen en kon ze zelf weer naar boven klauteren. 


    Of je bent een 80-jarige Chinees die voor een wandeling gaat en vervolgens in de grond verdwijnt. 


    Wanneer men in de mainstream wereld eindelijk eens wereldwijd verbanden zou gaan leggen tussen gebeurtenissen, dan zou er waarschijnlijk spontaan totale paniek uitbreken op onze planeet. En aangezien dat soort dingen de voorbereidingen van de elite op de komende dingen zou verstoren, zal dat absoluut niet gebeuren.

    Bij alle onzekere tijden is het in ieder geval zaak om goed gezond te blijven:

    Iets dat daarbij uitstekend bij kan helpen is chlorella zoals de biochlorella van Orjana die door Mike Adams van Natural News na tests is uitgeroepen tot beste ter wereld.

    Vanwege de vakantie kunnen de Niburlezers de komende week deze biochlorella va uitzonderlijk kwaliteit kopen met tien procent korting. Voer tijdens het afrekenen de code "zomeralg" in en ontvang de korting. Actie geldig tot en met woensdag 1 augustus.

    Worms frozen in permafrost for up to 42,000 years come back to life

    Worms frozen during an ice age 42,000 years have been brought back to life
    After being defrosted, worms “nematodes” frozen in permafrost for up to 42,000 years showed signs of life, they started moving an eating since the Pleistocene said a report from Yakutia, the area were the worms were found.

    Credit image: Siberiantimes.

    The roundworms from two areas of Siberia came back to life in Petri dishes, says a new scientific study.

    We have obtained the first data demonstrating the capability of multicellular organisms for longerterm cyrobiosis in permafrost desposits of the arctic; states a report from Russian scientist from our institutions in collaboration with Princetown University.

    Some 300 prehistoric worms were analyzed and two were shown to contain viablenematodes.

    One worm came from an ancient squirrel burrow in a permafrost wall of the Duvanny Yar outcrop in the lower reaches of the Kolyma River – close to the site of Pleistocene Park which is seeking to recreate the Arctic habitat of the extinct woolly mammoth.This is around 32,000 years old.

    Credit image: Siberiantimes - Image left variable nematodes.

    Currently the nematodes are the oldest living animals on the planet. They are both believed to be female.

    The worms came back to life in a laboratory at the Institute of Physico-Chemical and Biological Problems of Soil Science in Moscow.

    Our data demonstrate the ability of multicellular organisms to survive long-term (tens of thousands of years) crybiosis under the conditions of natural cryoconservation, scientists said to siberiantimes.
    Video: Worms frozen in Siberian permafrost come back to life

    Worms frozen in permafrost have come back to life after up to 42,000 years, say scientists. Two nematodes from Siberia are moving and eating again for the first time since the Pleistocene age, it is reported.

    They’re back! Worms unfrozen after 42,000 years are alive and eating

    HOW CAN YOU TELL IF THAT ET STORY IS REAL? SCIENTISTS REVISE THE RIO SCALE FOR ALIEN ENCOUNTERS

    A team of international researchers, led by scientists from the University of St Andrews and the SETI Institute in Mountain View, California, redefines alien detection scale.

    What are the consequences for the human race if we encountered extraterrestrial intelligence? If you see a story about aliens on TV or online, how excited should you be? A new study, published in the International Journal of Astrobiology, revamps a long-used tool for classifying potential signals from extraterrestrial intelligence, making it fit for the modern world of news and social media.

    First developed in 2001, the Rio Scale is a tool used by astronomers searching for extraterrestrial intelligence (ETI) to help communicate to the public ‘how excited’ they should be about what has been observed. The Scale measures the consequences for humans if the signal is from aliens, as well as the probability that the signal really is from aliens, and not a natural phenomenon or human-made. The scale gives a score between zero and ten, so that the public can quickly see how important a signal really is.

    “The whole world knows about the Richter Scale for quantifying the severity of an earthquake; that number is reported immediately following a quake and subsequently refined as more data are consolidated,” said Jill Tarter, co-founder of the SETI Institute. “The SETI community is attempting to create a scale that can accompany reports of any claims of the detection of extraterrestrial intelligence and be refined over time as more data become available. This scale should convey both the significance and credibility of the claimed detection.  Rio 2.0 is an attempt to update the scale to make it more useful and compatible with current modes of information dissemination, as well as providing means for the public to become familiar with the scale.”

    There have been many dubious signals reported as ‘aliens’ in recent years, and learning the truth about these stories is increasingly difficult. As such, an updated Rio Scale is required.

    The new study, led by Dr. Duncan Forgan at the University’s Centre for Exoplanet Science, highlights the changing nature of news media, the growth of 24-hour news and the new landscape of social media. Coupled with an increase in efforts to detect ETI by teams around the world, the Rio Scale is needed more than ever, and it must remain relevant when communicating to the public about ‘alien signals’.

    The international team of researchers’ revision of the Rio Scale (Rio 2.0) aims to bring consensus across academic disciplines, when classifying signals potentially indicating the existence of advanced extraterrestrial life. Rio 2.0 can quickly calibrate the public expectations of a reported signal, and educate them as to how SETI scientists actually evaluate a signal, from its initial detection through the various verification stages needed to determine if a signal is credibly from ETI.

    Key to the research is also the development of a single set of consistent terminology for discussing signals, both among researchers and in the media.

    The team has published an online Rio Scale Calculator, an interactive tool for scientists and science communicators to evaluate signals and give advice on how to use it for better reporting of ETI in the media.

    Lead researcher, Dr. Duncan Forgan, Centre for Exoplanet Science, University of St Andrews, said: “It’s absolutely crucial that when we talk about something so hugely significant as the discovery of intelligent life beyond the Earth, we do it clearly and carefully. Having Rio 2.0 allows us to rank a signal quickly in a way that the general public can easily understand, and helps us keep their trust in a world filled with fake news.”

    The new Rio Scale has now been submitted to the International Academy of Astronautics Permanent Committee on SETI for official ratification.

    The science of planet-hunting has truly taken off in the 21st century, with the transit method leading the way. When a planet passes in front of its parent star, relative to our line-of-sight, some of the star’s light will disappear for a short while. These transits are a prolific method for exoplanet hunters to search for worlds around other stars. As of today, we know of thousands of stars with worlds around them, and most of them were discovered by transit.

    When you design a mission optimized to look for planets, you expect that the technique is going to uncover a few oddities. But nothing prepared astronomers for the oddball that is Tabby’s star, whose flux dims by a tremendous amount, without any regularly repeating signals. After years of speculation involving scenarios ranging from comet storms to alien megastructures, scientists have finally solved the mystery. Dust, in an entirely new way, looks to be the culprit.

    The infrared (L) and ultraviolet (R) emissions from Tabby’s star: KIC 8462852. They show no evidence of a great many of the natural explanations for the flux dips observed. (INFRARED: IPAC/NASA (2MASS), AT LEFT; ULTRAVIOLET: STSCI (GALEX), AT RIGHT)

    NASA’s Kepler mission changed the game, surveying over 100,000 stars for a period of many years. Of the hundreds of thousands of stars that NASA’s Kepler spacecraft observed, one stands out as the most unusual. KIC 8462852 — known colloquially as either Tabby’s/Boyajian’s star (after the discoverer of its interesting behavior, Tabetha Boyajian) or the WTF? (for where’s the flux?) star — has a combination of properties that make it entirely unique. All at once, it:

    • exhibits huge drops in its flux, by up to 22% (while most planets cause <1% dips),
    • fades slowly over timescales of decades with occasional brightening events(which no other, similar stars are known to do),
    • where the overall brightness fluctuates around the dips (rather than the smooth decrease-and-increase seen for planets),
    • but with no infrared emission (which all other stars with large flux dips possess).

    This created a huge puzzle.

    A large number of protoplanetary systems have been imaged, but the state-of-the-art infrared imager designed for exoplanet disk pictures is SPHERE, which routinely obtains resolutions of ~10", or less than 0.003 degrees per pixel. KIC 8462852 does not have these properties or this infrared emission. (SHINE (SPHERE INFRARED SURVEY FOR EXOPLANETS) COLLABORATION / ARTHUR VIGAN)

    It couldn’t be planets, because no planet is large enough to block that much light from its star. Even if you envision a planet with an enormous ringed system, like a super-Saturn, those flux dips would be both periodic and exhibit a smooth pattern with a plateau. This contradicts the available data.

    Artist’s conception of the extrasolar ring system circling the young giant planet or brown dwarf J1407b. Worlds with extraordinary ringed systems could produce large flux dips, but those dips would be periodic and contain a planet-like component, which is not observed.(RON MILLER)

    This could have been a very young star, with planetesimals, a proto-planetary disk, and an extremely dusty environment. We’ve seen stars with large flux dips around them, and they’ve all fallen into this category.

    But Boyajian’s star is much too old to have a protoplanetary disk: many hundreds of millions of years too old. It also, most importantly, doesn’t exhibit the infrared flux emission that a star with a protoplanetary disk ought to have. This is why the star was originally named the “WTF?” (for where’s the flux?) star.

    It could be a series of cometary events, where they emit large amounts of dust being kicked up as they infall onto the inner portion of the solar system in question. This could, as was shown relatively recently, explain the short-term flux dips that have been seen.

    But there’s another phenomenon that this proposed solution cannot account for: the long-term dimming of the star. This star isn’t called “Tabby’s star” or “Boyajian’s star” because it was discovered by that particular scientist; only because she led the scientific investigation concerning the interesting and important new behavior.

    But this star has been known for over a century, and observations indicate a long-term fading, which this model cannot account for. Cometary dust gets blown off on the timescales of months; it would take a near-continuous bombardment of comets to sustain a reduced flux over the timescale of over a century. Many comets in a similar orbit would be required, which is not something we know how to obtain.

    So, what possible explanations remained? One popular idea that was advanced was that of alien megastructures: that a civilization far ahead of humanity, technologically, was constructing an apparatus that periodically (or aperiodically) blocked a large percentage of the star’s light. As the structure became more and more complete, that would increase the amount of light that was blocked. Over the past century, the fact that the light from this star had dimmed by such a significant amount could be explained by an advance in how completed the structure would be.

    It’s a compelling, if out-of-the-box, idea.

    A partially-obscured star could be due to an alien megastructure that is not yet complete, and could potentially be detectable by the Gaia spacecraft. However, that is not what’s occurring around KIC 8462852. The spectral evidence rules that out. (KEVIN MCGILL / FLICKR)

    But thanks to a myriad of follow-up observations, we know that it’s wrong. The reason? An object like an alien megastructure would be completely opaque to light: it would be unable to pass through it. This is equally true of things like planets, moons, or any other “solid” objects you can imagine.

    From over 19000 images taken over the past three years, in four different wavelength bands from blue light all the way to infrared light, we’ve learned that blue light is preferentially blocked in all dimming events: from the short-term flux dips to the long-term fading of the star. There’s one thing known that can cause bluer light to be blocked while redder light is preferentially transmitted: dust particles that go down to at least a certain, minimal size.

    Visible (left) and infrared (right) views of the dust-rich Bok globule, Barnard 68. The infrared light is not blocked nearly as much, as the smaller-sized dust grains are too little to interact with the long-wavelength light. (ESO)

    It must, therefore, be dust. Whatever is causing the flux dips, as well as whatever’s causing the long-term fading, must both have a dusty origin. The Kepler dips and the “secular dimming” are caused by the same phenomenon. According to the new paper itself:

    This chromatic extinction implies dust particle sizes going down to ~0.1 micron, suggesting that this dust will be rapidly blown away by stellar radiation pressure, so the dust clouds must have formed within months. The modern infrared observations were taken at a time when there was at least 12.4% ± 1.3% dust coverage (as part of the secular dimming), and this is consistent with dimming originating in circumstellar dust.

    This is where the evidence points: to dust. But this is still a bit mysterious.

    An illustration of a complex, dusty region around a star, superimposed with recent data from Tabetha Boyajian (2018, via Twitter) showing some recent flux dips. The dust could not be on the surface of the star, as illustrated here. KIC 8462852, an F-class star, is too hot for this to be plausible. (T. BOYAJIAN / TWITTER)

    After all, Boyajian’s star is a combination of things that we wouldn’t expect to find together.

    • It’s consistent with having a large amount of circumstellar dust, which normally indicates an extremely young star still in the formative stages.
    • The star itself is brighter, hotter, and more massive than the Sun: it gives off more than four times the amount of light our Sun does.
    • The star is old: hundred of millions of years old, burning stably on the main sequence by all accounts.

    In other words, the dust we see should last only months given the properties of the star itself. There must be some way for the star to replenish its dust. As far as we know, there are two possibilities that make sense: either there’s an external dust ring that has dense dust clouds in it or infalling bombardment events, or there’s something external to the star that leads to this blocking of the starlight.

    The leading idea, at present, is that a disk of dusty debris should exist around this star. If so, it’s incredibly serendipitous that the plane is so perfectly aligned with our line-of-sight, a remarkable and unlikely occurrence if true. Even if the odds are as great as 1%, it would be a puzzle that we haven’t seen other, similar stars (the 99%) without such an alignment. (NASA / JPL-CALTECH)

    The declining brightness that’s been observed since 1890 appears to continue through the current 2018 data, but it’s not steady. In addition, there are long-period dips lasting months, and shorter dips lasting a day or less superimposed on top of them. It’s definitely due to dust particles, down to maybe about 100 nanometers in size. The ratio of how the light dims in different wavelengths/colors demonstrates that and rules out other hypotheses.

    But where does that dust come from? To help narrow this down, the scientists involved calculated how much dust must be involved to explain the past 100+ years of dimming and dipping events. For what’s merely in the transiting plane defined by our point-of-view alone, we need to have an amount of dust equal to about the mass of the Moon.

    Originally, a scenario of a shattered comet was considered to explain Tabby’s star. Instead, a series of long-period comet-like objects with massive dust halos could cause these temporary, transient flux dips, but a very large amount of mass, that isn’t in the form of opaque objects, must exist to do it. (NASA/JPL-CALTECH)

    But there could be much more. Previous researchers have also suggested that there could be a large amount of more distant, interstellar dust, which the data supports.

    This could either replace or be in addition to the circumstellar dust’s presence. As far as a disk of material around the star goes, the disk is a bare minimum. There could be a large amount of dust that isn’t just in the plane we observe, but also outside of it: in perhaps a halo. We simply don’t know, but we do know that if it does exist, it cannot be close enough to emit infrared radiation. Comets, too, should create infrared radiation; the James Webb Space Telescope should be able to tell, when the flux dips occur, whether the comet hypothesis is in or out.

    A dusty debris disk either around the star itself or the planets that orbit it close in would emit infrared radiation, where none is seen. If there is a dust ring (or halo) farther out, however, that could explain these observations. (ESA, NASA, AND L. CALCADA (ESO FOR STSCI))

    And finally, there’s a curious candidate explanation that’s been proposed: this dust could be the result of a case of stellar indigestion.

    If a gas giant planet — say, the size of Uranus — were devoured by this star, it could be the culprit. An inspiral of a planet or a series of planetary bodies a long time ago, perhaps centuries or even many millenia ago, could have caused a temporary brightening, from which the star is now returning to its original, stable state. The flux dips we observe, then, could be due to planetary debris from an earlier disruption, or evaporation and outgassing of smaller bodies.

    An artist’s impression of HD 189733 b, a Hot Jupiter so close to its host that its atmosphere is being boiled off into space. If a gas giant was recently swallowed by KIC 8462852, it could potentially be ‘belching’ dust particles that might cause the observed dimming.(NASA / GSFC)

    Regardless of the mechanism in question, we can be certain of one conclusion: the reason for the dimming of Boyajian’s star is due to dust. This is normal, particulate dust, containing particle sizes down to about 100 nanometers, or smaller than the wavelength of visible light. The same dust that causes short, day-or-less dips also causes dips that last many months, and also cause the decline that’s lasted more than a century. It’s all due to plain, normal dust.

    The big, open question that now remains is where this dust came from? It’s not because the star is young or still forming, and there are incredible constraints on the star having an unseen companion. It cannot all come from interstellar dust. Was a planet devoured? Is there something even more unusual afoot? The only way to know will be with more — and better — science on this object. But one thing’s for certain: even if alien megastructures exist somewhere, they aren’t here.

    Dust that ‘killed’ Nasa Opportunity Rover came from mysterious alien volcanoes, scientists discover

    Jasper Hamill

    Hope must be running out among the Nasa scientists battling to get in touch with a Mars exploration robot that’s feared to have been killed during a huge dust storm.

    But now scientists think they know where the murder weapon came from – a gigantic volcanic deposit identified as the source of most of the fine particles that coat the Red Planet.

    Nasa’s Opportunity Rover was only designed to survive for 90 days on the surface of Mars but has kept on trundling for 15 years.

    Sadly, the plucky machine has now been lost and is feared dead after being battered by one of the most intense dust storms ever observed on the Martian surface.

    This sad fate would never have occurred if it weren’t for the presence of vast amounts of dust on Mars.

    The powder floats in the atmosphere and is made from sulphur and chlorine.

    On Earth, dust is separated from soft rock by natural processes such as wind or water erosion, volcanic eruptions or even asteroid impacts.

    Undated NASA handout image of a Mars Rover. NASA's Mars rover 'Opportunity' managed to climb up and out of the crater that it explored for nearly two months, Monday March 22, 2004, overcoming a slippery slope that left the vehicle spinning its wheels during an earlier attempt. Today's short drive across the sandy inner rim of Eagle Crater placed the rover outside the shallow depression for the first time since it landed on January 24. See PA Story US Mars. PA Photo: NASA.

    ‘How does Mars make so much dust, because none of these processes are active on Mars?’ asked Lujendra Ojha, a co-author of a study which traces ‘the single largest source of dust on Mars’.

    He traced the dust back to a volcanic deposit called the Medusae Fossae Formation that’s near the Martian equator and about half as big as the continental United States.

    It’s believed to have been produced by volcanic eruptions which took place over an interval of 500 million years.

    ' Analysis showed the area had a very similar chemical composition to the dust in the atmosphere of Mars, suggesting it has been eroded over billions of years and is the source of the tiny particles.

    ‘Mars wouldn’t be nearly this dusty if it wasn’t for this one enormous deposit that is gradually eroding over time and polluting the planet, essentially,’ said Kevin Lewis, an assistant professor of Earth and planetary science at the Johns Hopkins University and co-author of the research paper.

    Unfortunately, this information will not help the Opportunity Rover, which was solar-powered and could not keep itself going when a dust storm enveloped the entire planet.

    Nasa last heard from Opportunity on June 18. There is a chance it could come back to life once the dust settles and begins to fall off its solar panels, but this depends on powerful the storm was.

    In The Martian, a dust storm sparks a series of nightmarish events that leaves Matt Damon stranded on Mars.

    Let’s hope there’s a similarly happy ending to the story of Opportunity.

    There's something you're not being told about Earth...

    Last night, whilst trawling through YouTube I came across an interesting 44m video that I think deserves a rational debate.

    Through the ages of modern civilisation, mankind has become divided on the subject of Planet Earth.

    • Flat
    • Hollow
    • Round
    • Holographic

    Most open-minded intelligent people know that there is something about Earth that we aren't being told. Due to this, there is a growing mistrust between Citizens, Governments and Corporations, which leave many to believe in alternative narratives.

    The Government's & Corporations will not admit, (or deny) with full transparency, or disclose anything but the 'official' narrative it developed itself - on a need to know basis, which amounts to confusion and conspiracies both from far-fetched to plausible.

    For arguments sake, I'm going to go ahead and say that the Earth isn't F... Shhh. Calm down already. OK fine. Let's pretend the Earth isn't flat because everything points to it being round. OK? Just watch the damn video.

    The video is about Antarctica, Agartha, and Admiral Bird.

    This may also explain:

    • Our missing history - where we came from
    • The home of the Cabal who rule us.
    • UFO's
    • Underground tunnels and bunker systems.
    • Hitlers research expedition teams.
    • Atlantis
    • Other lost tribes & civilisations
    • Earth's magnetization

    Cover-Up?! Underground City of Giants at the Grand Canyon

    Cover-Up?! Underground City of Giants at the Grand Canyon

    At the beginning of the 20th century by chance, an underground city of giants was discovered in the Grand Canyon.

    According to an April 5, 1999 article published in La Gazeta, Arizona the Grand Canyon was the home of a civilization of cyclopean proportions. Only some structures were left as a testimony of its existence.

    Smithsonian hides all traces of giants.

    The things still kept hidden from humanity have the power to change the world and how we view it. Secrecy is paramount and keeps mankind shackled i ignorance. Cut off their funding.

    The entire government, all of its branches, and every country besides Iran cover up the truth.

    Another Smithsonian cover-up. I wonder how different the world would be if they would just tell us the truth. Truth is a radical concept.

    Smithsonian is a part of many cover-ups.

    The Anak in scripture are the Anunaki the demigods that Egypt worshiped, they drew them holding lions like house cats in their hydroglyps. Genesis 6:4 in the bible tells how the fallen angels took human wives and had children with them they bore Giants (Nephilim and the Rephaim) mighty men of old men of renoun. Every culture speaks of them. All through Exodus, numbers, Duet God used Jacob (house of Israel) to wipe them out, women, children and animals, because the fallen also mingled with strange flesh (animals) that's why God flooded the earth and how he explained why he saved Noah and his family because they were pure, their genetic gene code had not been tampered with.

    Theres a story where they sent spies to spy out the land of Canaan before God sent them in to conquer it. But they reported back that there was cities fortified to the heavens and men so great they looked like grasshoppers to them. Now when these beings died there was no place for them in heaven because they were not of Gods creation, so they were destined to roam the earth until judgement day. Hence your Ghost and bad spirits. God said the end will be like the days of Noah when the son of man returns. Aliens sister are fallen angels they are not from outer space they live in the oceans and earth, aka Sheoul the underworld. What did Satan say to the Lord when he asked him where he had been? That's a clue! This will be the coming alien deception or disclosure whatever you choose to call it! Hence Trumps space force. Do not believe for a min that they are aliens! Seek a relationship with Christ we will all need him. God bless you.

    Similar places and giant remains have been found around the globe. However, for unknown reasons, it appears the authorities and museums appear to be making every effort to cover them up.

    The Lakenheath UFO Chase Incident

    Written by Marcus Lowth  Estimated Reading Time: 4 minutes

    On the evening of the 13th going into the 14th August 1956, one of the most well-documented and military-radar-confirmed UFO encounters took place in the skies over eastern England. As well as being tracked on three separate ground radar systems, further confirmation came from an airborne radar. And further still, visual sightings came from two pilots in separate planes, as well as from multiple personnel from two different control towers.

    Lakenheath Radar UFO

    As well as the amount of military documentation of the incident, the fact that it stretched between US and UK intelligence networks shows that not only were both governments aware and actively investigating the instances, but they were apparently doing so, at least on occasion, through combined and coordinated efforts. This, despite public denials to both of their respective citizens. As the true “UFO history” is revealed through the persistent investigations of UFO researchers around the world, it is highly likely we will discover such coordinated efforts go out in many directions and under many directives.

    Before we examine this most fascinating military encounter with an apparent other-worldly craft, check out the short video below. It features some of the better photographs captured by members of the public during the early-to-mid-1950s. A time when UFO sightings were more and more commonplace.

    Not A Meteor, Comet, Or Conventional Aircraft!

    At a little after 9:30 pm on the evening of 13th August 1956, the radar system at RAF Bentwaters (utilized by the US military) picked up an anomalous object on England’s east coast. It moved at a pace somewhere between 4,000 and 9,000 miles per hour. Aside from the abnormal speed, the size of the object was that of a standard jet fighter. As the object vanished from the radar screen “it diminished in size and intensity”.

    Around 30 minutes later at 10 pm another mysterious object appeared on a radar monitor at Bentwaters. The distance it covered suggested a speed around 12,000 miles per hour. As well as the radar returns, which were again of a similar size to a conventional craft, those on duty in the control tower would report visually witnessing a bright light passing overhead at the same time as the radar was tracking the object. Further still, a C-47 craft was passing high overhead, also at the same time. The pilot would report a streaking white light below him.

    Personnel at Bentwaters would notify the nearby RAF Lakenheath station, also a US military outpost at the time. They too managed to track the same objects on their systems. Several Lakenheath personnel also reported visual confirmation of the UFO from the ground. They would report a “luminous object” head in their direction which then came to an “abrupt stop”. It hovered for a moment before “streaking away” and out of sight.

    Whatever the object was, it wasn’t a meteor or a comet, and it certainly wasn’t a conventional aircraft. That much was certain.

    Pursuit By A UFO!

    Shortly after midnight, following a call of a sighting near the RAF Station in Neatishead, a Venom night fighter jet scrambled from Waterbeach. It would first head towards a “target” which then vanished before the fighter could intercept it. Seconds later, however, the fighter would receive new coordinates, just north of Cambridge. This time, not only did he confirm the object on his own radar, he would send back visual confirmation. Furthermore, radars at Neatishead and Lakenheath would also confirm the sightings.

    Several seconds following these confirmations, the object would appear just behind the Venom fighter. It continued to “pursue” the jet, maintaining a steady distance of only a quarter of a mile. The pilot of the fighter performed several maneuvers in an attempt to “shake off” this mysterious craft, but to no avail.

    This would continue for around ten minutes. Although the craft was not aggressively chasing the fighter jet, it would maintain the close proximity. Then, it suddenly became stationary, simply hovering and allowing the Venom plane to increase the distance between them. Taking the chance, the plane immediately returned to base.

    Several moments later, the UFO zipped northwards. Traveling at an estimated 600 miles per hour, it was soon out of range, its ultimate destination unknown. The radar system at Lakenheath, however, would continue to receive “echoes” of the craft until around 3:30 am. This would suggest that, even though the object was out of range, its effects were still being felt for several hours following its disappearance. Although purely speculation, perhaps this would suggest the craft was closer than many would think. Perhaps, as we have examined before, the North Sea and the waters of the North Atlantic Ocean contain the bases these apparent alien crafts come from.

    F-15 UFO

    Recent Sightings Over Lakenheath

    The Lakenheath case has gone under close scrutiny from many different groups and individuals alike over the years. Perhaps not least from those behind the Condon Report, who would describe the case as “the most puzzling and unusual case in the radar-visual files”. They would go on to state that “at least one genuine UFO” was in the encounter was “fairly high”. Furthermore, the “rational, intelligent behavior of the UFO suggests a mechanical device of unknown origin”. They would, though, insert the caveat that “conventional explanations” couldn’t be dismissed as a possibility.

    As credibly documented as the encounter is, it remains unexplained. Whether the intelligence behind the mysterious objects of August 1956 is the same as some of the many other sightings over the United Kingdom in the 1950s also remains unknown. It certainly isn’t that much a stretch of the imagination.

    In 2007, over fifty years following the incident, two US pilots of a US Air Force F-15 were contacted by London Military Air Traffic Control with a request to “intercept an unknown target” in their vicinity and flying at an altitude of between 3,000 and 4,000 feet. Not only would the F-15 lock-in on the mystery object, they would perform two passes, both at 17,000 feet. The pilots would later describe the object as completely black and “unlike any aircraft they had ever seen”.

    The video below features the audio exchange of the two pilots. It is an interesting few minutes. As always, make of it what you will.

    The UFO Sighting That Was A “Family Secret” For Over Thirty Years!

    Written by Marcus Lowth  Estimated Reading Time: 9 minutes

    Joan Vincent, along with her husband, Roy, would witness a UFO over the skies of Cornwall one evening in 1965. It was a sighting they would keep secret to all but close family until 1998 when they would finally speak of the encounter. Perhaps it was Joan Vincent’s long-standing position as a county councilor that encouraged her to maintain her silence. At a time when most were labeled “crazy” if they were to speak of such encounters, it is easy to understand why the sighting remained the Vincent family secret for so long.

    Joan and Roy Vincent UFO

    Joan and Roy Vincent

    In November 1998, however, with the subject considered much less taboo, if still a little “wacky”, Joan Vincent would finally reveal the encounter to the Cornish Guardian newspaper. As we will look at shortly, 1965 was a year of increased UFO activity throughout the world, not least the United Kingdom. Cornwall also has a long history of strange and paranormal activity, including UFO sightings. And those sightings, it would seem, continue in abundance today.

    The short video below, for example, is just one of many contemporary sightings. This one is from 2015.

    Late One Night In 1965

    At the time of the sighting in 1965, the Vincents’ family home was in Stenalees, a rural area of Cornwall. It was late one evening and the couple were driving home on the largely empty country roads. According to Joan, they had been driving for around fifteen minutes when “suddenly it was as if a light had been switched on outside”. She would further tell how they could “see for miles” over the fields and open countryside such was the brightness of the light.

    The area they were driving through had a well-known reputation in recent years for being a place where “flying saucers” could be seen. Many students would hold all-night vigils in the hopes of seeing one of these cosmic visitors. With that in mind, the Vincents were already sure of what was unfolding around them.

    As they scanned their surroundings from inside their vehicle, Joan would notice a dome-shaped, glass-like object that seemed to be hovering behind a large edge in a nearby field. Joan would explain three decades later that the hedge was so thick that “neither of us know if it was hovering or resting on the grass”. The light appeared to be emanating from inside the dome itself on top of the object.

    They would later estimate the craft to have been between fifty to seventy feet in length and around forty feet high. Joan would even state that inside the dome she could see “big cabinets with dials on them”. The material around the dome was more solid and metallic. It was of a grey-green color and contained several portholes.

    The couple remained motionless, staring at the magnificent sight for what seemed like minutes. In reality, it was merely thirty seconds. Then Joan urged her husband to “get (us) out of here”.

    Not A Bizarre Hallucination!

    Roy did as his wife requested and pressed down on the accelerator and they sped away from the scene. Once home, each would approach the sighting with very business-like mindsets. They would each go into separate rooms to draw the object they had just seen. Once done, they would compare the sketches. Not surprisingly, they were practically identical. While they couldn’t explain what they had seen, they could at least rule out, if only in their own minds, that it was some kind of bizarre hallucination.

    They would, however, make the decision to keep the matter to themselves. They would tell only their son and Joan’s mother, who unfortunately both passed away before the couple went public with the account. Consequently, no investigation would take place. And perhaps most unfortunate, is that no further corroborating witnesses were found who very well might have seen the events from a different vantage point.

    The Vincents would return to the field the following day but could find no evidence of what they had seen. This only further strengthened their conviction that they should keep the matter to themselves. Incidentally, the field where the sighting took place is now a spoil tip for the (then) newly built industrial estate. Furthermore, the road where the Vincents would view events from their stopped car also no longer exists as it was re-routed during the developments of the following decades.

    While we might learn any more about this particular sighting, both the location and the year are of interest to UFO researchers.

    The Sighting Of Max Beran And Further Incidents From Southern England

    While we will look at more recent UFO sightings in Cornwall shortly, several other sightings in 1965 are also perhaps worth mentioning here. Much of the United Kingdom, and indeed the world in general, experienced higher than normal rates of UFO sightings in 1965. And several of them, although not over Cornwall itself, still took place towards the south of England, which in relative terms, is in the same region.

    On the afternoon of 5th January of 1965, for example, came the sighting of Max Beran. He would write of his encounter in March, Cambridgeshire, to the Meteorological Office Unit (MOU). He would claim that the object resembled a curved parachute, although it was moving much too quickly. It “remained visible while in the sunlight”, suggesting that the object was metallic and reflecting the sun’s rays. Although Beran didn’t at any point insinuate that the object was extraterrestrial, he would end his initial letter by simply asking, “What could the object have been?” No satisfactory was ever offered to Beran’s request. At least none that undoubtedly explained the object.

    Another sighting, this time in Essex, took place in the early hours of 14th September, at just after 1 am. 29-year-old engineer, Paul Green, would see a “thing” in the skies overhead. He was returning home on his motorbike following a visit to his fiancée’s home. He was traveling at around forty miles per hour, and aside from a scooter (which he overtook), there was no other traffic on the roads. As he approached Langenhoe Hall, he noticed a “high-pitched humming” heading towards from his left-hand side.

    Landing And Paralysis

    Green glanced upwards expecting to see a small aircraft overhead. However, he could see nothing but the black of the night sky. He did, though, pick out a “small pinpoint of blue light” in the same direction the humming appeared to be emanating from. The light was blinking on and off and was now getting increasingly larger. And increasingly quickly. Realizing it was heading in his direction at considerable speed he noticed that the humming was also increasing in volume. In fact, the closer it got, the more it took on the sound of a “high-pitched buzz”.

    Just as he began to contemplate increasing his speed his bike “began to cough and splutter”. Several seconds later it “stopped dead and the lights went out”. He turned to face the sound, noticing that the object was now only a mile or so away. It was spinning as it moved and “resembled the upper half of a large spinning top”. On the top of the object was a dome that appeared to be sending out the blue flashing light.

    As the object descended, Green noticed how the underside of the craft contained “numerous round objects”, some of which appeared to glow. He stepped from his bike and began in the object’s direction. However, within a few steps, he was suddenly unable to move. Nor could he speak to call out for help. He was paralyzed – something we have seen in many close-contact UFO encounters.

    He continued to watch the object as he remained unable to move. The flashing light increased in brightness until it hurt his eyes to look at it. He could almost feel the light “hit against” his chest. As he stood motionless, he noticed the scooter he had passed earlier approach. Its engine cut out dead.

    A Quick And Sudden Getaway

    The rider of the now crippled scooter stepped off the vehicle, all the while staring in disbelief at the awesome sight in front of him. In fact, so engrossed was he with the glowing craft, that he didn’t notice Green stood just a few yards up from him.

    Green then realized he was beginning to regain some movement in his limbs. He began to concentrate on moving from where he stood. It was taking all the effort he could muster, but slowly he was able to move. As soon as he regained the strength to take steps from where he stood, he picked up his bike and began to push it away from the bizarre scene. After several steps, he decided to give the engine a try. As it roared into life he quickly sat on it, revved it once or twice, and sped away from the glowing craft.

    The further away he got, the light became dimmer, but it was still visible for some time. What became of the rider of the scooter, or who he was, remains unknown. By the time Green arrived home, it was after 2 am. His head throbbed from the experience, and a mixture of fright and adrenaline rushed through him.

    Cornwall UFO

    Does this show a UFO over Cornwall in the early-2000s?

    Aftereffects And A Further Witness

    The following day he noticed how his clothes from the previous evening were riddled with static. They would even “crackle” as he moved them. As would his hair if he ran his hand through or over it. Perhaps most interesting, though, was an unintentional corroborative witness in a friend who he discussed the incident with a few days later.

    According to his friend, at a little after 1 am, his dog suddenly became very agitated at the front door of the house. He would open the door to let it into the garden. As he did so, “a large blue light passed by rapidly” directly over his property. The two friends would figure out that it was heading in the direction that Green was traveling in. It was almost certainly the same object.

    Whether these sightings share a connection with the sighting of Joan and Roy Vincent is unknown. It is, however, not that much a stretch of the imagination to suggest so. And while such sightings would become more sporadic in the years following the 1965 wave, certain areas would maintain a higher than usual rate. One such area is Cornwall. And those sightings have continued well into the twenty-first century.

    Over Twenty People Witness UFO, December 2000

    According to long-time Cornish UFO investigator and founder of the Cornwall UFO Research Group, David Gillham, one evening in December 2000, a mass sighting of a UFO took place over the skies of the southern-most English county. At a little past 6 pm, four lights were spotted in the dark skies overhead. As one light went off, another would come on. As witnesses watched the strange lights from the ground, it appeared they were part of a solid, circular structure.

    Gillham would tell Cornwall Live in 2017 that the strange craft would make its way over the towns of Marazion, Helston, Falmouth, and Truro before heading “up the A30 towards St. Austell”. Perhaps even more note-worthy is a helicopter would fly directly over the path of the UFO almost as soon as it had disappeared. In total, over twenty people would come forward to give statements regarding what they had seen. One witness even managed to capture footage of it.

    Five years previously in 1995, Gillham had his own sighting of a strange aerial craft over Cornwall. As he looked out on the Nansavallon Woods from the window of his hilltop home one evening, his attention was drawn to “two red lights hovering just above the trees”. He would call his wife to join him. She too witnessed the glowing red orbs, which would begin in the direction of Truro. Not wanting to lose sight of them, Gillham ran from the house aiming to locate the lights once more.

    2000 UFO Cornwall

    Persistent Sightings Continue

    Gillham would venture down a small lane which ran behind the Richard Lander School. He was looking down towards the woodland but couldn’t locate the red lights. Then, out of nowhere, three military helicopters criss-crossed over the top of him. They were followed by the sound of a plane, which judging by the rumble he could feel as it passed, must have been relatively low to the ground.

    He remained where he was, hoping to witness further activity. After thirty minutes, however, he made the decision to return home. Once there, he found his wife still at the window where they had seen the lights nearly an hour earlier. He would tell her of the helicopters that had flown over him.

    Gillham would open his own research file into the incident. The following day he would literally knock on residents’ doors one after another asking if they had seen anything unusual the previous evening. He was unable, though, to find another corroborating witness. He continues to investigate UFO sightings. In particular those in the Cornwall region. And given the persistent UFO and paranormal activity in the region, there will be plenty to investigate for many years.

    The short video below looks at some of the strange activities and sightings over southern England, in particular, Cornwall.

    Vliegtuigbouwers als Lockheed Martin gebruiken buitenaardse technologieën. Professor trekt gordijn weg

    Meerdere mensen hebben gezegd dat veel van de technologieën die worden gebruikt door vliegtuigbouwers als Lockheed Martin niet afkomstig zijn van onze aarde.

    Eén van die mensen is professor Heather Sartain van de University of Houston-Downtown.

    Haar vader Edward Glen Sartain, die enkele jaren geleden overleed, was als ingenieur werkzaam bij Lockheed Martin. Hij vertelde haar over buitenaardse vaartuigen en technologieën die niet op aarde konden worden bewaard.

    Aliens

    Haar vader was naar eigen zeggen betrokken bij verschillende geheime ruimteprogramma’s. Hij begon bij de luchtmacht, werkte daarna voor de NASA en eindigde bij Lockheed, waar hij werkte als ruimtevaartingenieur.

    Toen Sartain 13 jaar oud was begon ze vragen te stellen aan haar vader over een UFO die haar moeder en haar zus in 1966 hadden gezien.

    “Was die UFO echt of was het iets van het leger?” vroeg ze. “Het was een echte,” antwoordde haar vader, toevoegende dat ze aliens in het vaartuig konden zien ziten.

    Greys

    In de UFO, die in de buurt van het Johnson Space Center verscheen, zagen haar moeder en zus tenminste drie kleine wezens.

    Haar vader zei: “Dat waren de greys. Het zijn robots die geprogrammeerd zijn door een hogere intelligentie, een oudere beschaving, en die geregeld in onze atmosfeer komen.”

    Hij vertelde haar dat er verschillende groepen op onze planeet zijn die onder ons leven en dat ze dat al doen sinds de oudheid.

    Reverse engineering

    Sartain merkte op dat haar vaders collega’s, ook ruimtevaartingenieurs, vaak bij haar over de vloer kwamen en gesprekken voerden over aliens.

    Ze spraken ook over het manipuleren van energie, hoe je de rotatie van de planeet met behulp van mentale krachten kunt beïnvloeden en hoe je de atmosfeer kunt beïnvloeden.

    Ze hadden het ook over technologieën die de overheid uit gecrashte UFO’s wilde halen met behulp van reverse engineering, aldus de professor.

    Ancient frozen worm brought back to life

    Worms Frozen For 40,000 Years Brought Back to Life, Fueling Hope For Human Cryogenics

    Scientists sure are good at making us constantly feel like we’re in the opening scenes of a horror movie. The latest case of science toeing the line between being really cool and going too far comes out of Siberia, because of course it does. According to the Siberian Times, Russian scientists have successfully resurrected two roundworms—nematodes— that were frozen in the Siberian permafrost since the Pleistocene era. For context, when these worms were frozen, woolly mammoths were stomping around Siberia. The two nematodes are 32,000 and 40,000 years old, approximately, and now that they’ve woken from their slumber are the two oldest living animals on earth.

    Nematodes

             Nematodes (Representational picture) YouTube grab/ The Soil Association Videos                                                                                                                                                           Scientists say that this is a major breakthrough and could pave the way for human cryonics—the ability to freeze a person for long periods of time and bring them back, for applications like long term space travel or the arrogant quest for immortality. According to the scientists:

    “Our data demonstrate the ability of multicellular organisms to survive long-term (tens of thousands of years) cryobiosis under the conditions of natural cryoconservation. 

    It is obvious that this ability suggests that the Pleistocene nematodes have some adaptive mechanisms that may be of scientific and practical importance for the related fields of science, such as cryomedicine, cryobiology, and astrobiology.”

    Frozen nematode

    This is a frozen nematode.

    Russian scientists at the Institute of Physico-Chemical and Biological Problems of Soil Science, working in collaboration with scientists at Princeton University in the U.S., collected samples of frozen nematodes from the Yakutia region of Siberia, the coldest part of Russia. This is close to the proposed “Pleistocene Park” which would recreate the habitat of woolly mammoths. All in all 300 samples of frozen nematodes were taken. Only two were actually brought back to life, so don’t go taking a nap in the walk-in freezer just yet.

    According to the research once the worms were defrosted in petri dishes, they began showing signs of life, moving and eating food, as if they hadn’t just slept for all of recorded history.

    If you’ve spent at least a decade or two on this planet you’ve heard of cryonics or cryogenic freezing. The plot of the show Futurama is based on a 21st century man accidentally freezing himself and getting defrosted in the far future. Then there’s the persistent—and likely false—rumor of Walt Disney having his body frozen so he might get resurrected when they found a cure for cancer.

    Not Walt Disney.

    This is not Walt Disney.

    Cryonics holds a lot of promise to a lot of people. Apart from the medical applications, the other use is in space travel. Assuming we don’t develop faster than light travel, the only way to get a space exploration team farther into deep space than the human lifespan will allow is to freeze them. The basic premise is this: it should be possible to lower a persons body temperature enough so that there is no deterioration, even after centuries (or millennia) spent frozen. The second part is harder: bringing them back. Thawing out two worms is definitely a far cry from freezing the crew of a space ship and bringing them back a century a century or more later in the middle of deep space, but at least it’s a start.

    Unless these worms keep eating and growing until they’re the size of school buses and then we have that problem to deal with. Be careful when you jump into sci-fi territory, people, you never know which version of the future you’re going to get.

    Container Found That May Have Held Remains of Three Apostles

    Another biblical story becomes closer to reality as archeologists digging on the shore of the Sea of Galilee found a giant stone block with depressions carved into which may have, based on the location of the discovery, contained the remains of apostles Peter, Philip and Andrew. This may also be proof that the area where it was found is the location of the biblical Roman city of Bethsaida (or Bethsaida Julius), which the gospel of John says is the birthplace of these three apostles.

    Philip, like Andrew and Peter, was from the town of Bethsaida.
    John 1:44

    They came to Philip, who was from Bethsaida in Galilee, with a request. “Sir,” they said, “we would like to see Jesus.
    John 12:21

    The story begins in the Hebrew Bible at the sea of Kinneret or Kinnerot, the freshwater lake in modern Israel that also was referred to in the Old and New Testaments and other biblical era writings as the Lake of Gennesaret, Sea of Ginosar, the Sea of Galilee and the Sea of Tiberias.

    Sea of Galilea

    While the sea, whichever name you use, is easy to find today, Bethsaida Julius is not. Archeologists and historians have long thought that et-Tell, a site (Jordan Park) near where the Jordan River flows into the lake, is the location of the lost Bethsaida. However, Haaretz reports that Professor Mordechai Aviam of the Kinneret Academic College discovered a Roman-style bathhouse in August 2017 that is 2 km (1,25 miles) south of et-Tell in el-Araj that be believed at the time that this was the true location of ancient Bethsaida. Now he may have the proof. (See the photos here.)

    Before finding the relic-holding stone, Aviam found the remains of “a richly endowed Byzantine-era church.” Even today, Byzantine churches contain elaborate reliquaries – containers built to hold the relics of saints or other holy people that are generally placed on the floor underneath the altar. Anaim believed the church was possibly the Church of the Apostles mentioned in Huneberc of Heidenheim: the Hodoeporicon of St. Willibald (or Willibrord), an eighth century Byzantine pilgrim St. Willibald, who wrote:

    “Then they went to Bethsaida, the native place of Peter and Andrew. A church now occupies the site where their home once stood.”

    What happened to Philip? St. Willibald doesn’t say, nor does Aviam. But the professor admits that the basalt reliquary with the three carved depressions was not found among the remains of the church but very close by.

    “It was found in the debris of an Ottoman-era, two-story house built by a rich man from Damascus, who owned all the land locally in the late 19th century.”

    It was close enough for Avaim to connect both the dots and the spots and declare that the reliquary with the three carved depressions was from the Church of the Apostles and makes it highly probable that el-Araj is the site of the biblical Bethsaida. To strengthen his theory, Aviam points to artifacts which indicate that el-Araj began in the first century BCE as a fishing village (the apostles were fishermen) and grew into a Roman urban center by the fourth century. At that point it was abandoned, possibly due to rising waters from the Sea of Galilee. Now, due to drought, the body of water is back to those ancient low levels and exposing the biblical sites once located around it.

    Simon Peter with Andrew (Phillip Medhurst collection)

    Proof positive that the big basalt stone with three depressions was the reliquary of apostles Peter, Philip and Andrew? Not quite. Proof that el-Araj is the location of the biblical city of Bethsaida and the Church of the Apostles? Possibly.

    An interesting set of discoveries that brings the tales of ancient religious books closer to reality? Definitely.

    Near Surface Red Colored Light Anomaly Total Lunar Eclipse

    During the lunar eclipse SplendidDragon1 has filmed a strange near-surface red colored light anomaly that first appears at 8:30 and then is either replicated or moved to the 9:00 position.


    SplendidDragon1: First three items are still photos of the blood moon followed by an eclipse taken from Germany between 10:30 p.m. and midnight.

    This is followed by short video clips showing some eclipse progression.

    The last few clips focus on a (red-colored) near-surface anomaly that first appears at 8:30 and then is either replicated or moved to the 9:00 position.

    A bit uncharacteristic of a UFO (but then what isn't), but baffling.

    Three UFOs Seen By Eyewitness From Passenger Jet, Video, UFO Sighting News.



    Date of sighting: 7-9-2018
    Location of sighting: LAX, USA

    This is a fantastic recording of several white craft seen following a passenger jet over LAX. Its amazing at how close UFOs come and how frequently they are seen. This video is going to blow your mind. Absolutely incredible evidence. 

    Scott C. Waring

    Video states:

    New York - 07-09-18 - Flying to LAX, I noticed the bright lights out the window. Did a second take cause I first thought it must be a reflection. Used my Iphone 10 to record it and could tell almost immediately it was in fact an actual object(s). The lights would go in and out of the clouds, change elevation and location from my particular viewpoint. I’m assuming it took place over Nevada based on the time. If you look closely, a white blinking light appears randomly both in front and behind the object. This object when viewed by human eyes was white and glowing. Lost sight of it after 5 or 6 minutes as it slowly went behind the wing. In a commercial airline so was traveling at least 500mph. I felt beyond excited because I knew then I was seeing something strange and was grateful to have the foresight to record it.

    Research Claims UFOs Are Getting More Difficult To Spot

    UFO sightings in the U.S. are in a permanent downtrend for seven years, and researchers are puzzled, according to new research.

    UFOs are getting harder to spot, research claims | Latest UFO Sightings 2018

    International UFO Congress Researcher of the Year Cheryl Costa has found the average annual UFO sighting in the country are now 7,837 on average, a 41 percent drop from the three-year peak average years.

    Costa explained that UFO sightings rise to a peak during the cycles, decline back toward the baseline, and rise again to initiate a new cycle.

    Costa wrote that the US had a peak average of 13,500 yearly UFO sightings between 2012 and 2014, citing National UFO Reporting Center (NUFORC) and Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) data.

    In 2015, however, the sightings fell 11 percent to 11,.975 and 21 percent to 10,602 in 2016.

    danish-ufo

    Danish UFO

    The significant drop in sightings have puzzled UFO researchers, including Costa but she speculated that it had to do with broadband Internet access.

    Costa wrote that they see relatively flat sighting report numbers from 2001 to 2006. She explained that the flatness is an artefact of reporting as broadband Internet access was still growing in most places. Access to broadband is a primary reason people having routine use of NUFORC and MUFON as well as other web reporting services.

    Costa noted that the state of New York rose to the fourth-most likely area to see an unidentified flying object during 2016 and 2017, but significantly decreased from its peak average at 325 sightings seen in 2017, down from 577 average sightings seen between 2012 and 2014.

    She wrote that New York state and national charts show the classic rise and fall pattern from 2006 to 2010 and the rise starts again in 2011.

    The spike in 2012 could be because of the Mayan calendar media ballyhoo. With that into consideration, the classic UFO cycle is seen clearly from 2011 to 2017.

    Mysteries from the moon’s past

    Closeup view of the moon.

    By Will Ferguson, WSU News

    While the moon is uninhabitable today, there could have been life on its surface in the distant past.

    In fact, there may have been two early windows of habitability for Earth’s moon, according to a study online today in the journal Astrobiology by Dirk Schulze-Makuch, a Washington State University astrobiologist.

    Schulze-Makuch and Ian Crawford, a professor of planetary science and astrobiology at the University of London, say conditions on the lunar surface were sufficient to support simple lifeforms shortly after the moon formed from a debris disk 4 billion years ago and again during a peak in lunar volcanic activity around 3.5 billion years ago.

    During both periods, planetary scientists think the moon was spewing out large quantities of superheated volatile gases, including water vapor, from its interior.

    Schulze-Makuch

    Schulze-Makuch and Crawford write that this outgassing could have formed pools of liquid water on the lunar surface and an atmosphere dense enough to keep it there for millions of years.

    “If liquid water and a significant atmosphere were present on the early moon for long periods of time, we think the lunar surface would have been at least transiently habitable,” Schulze-Makuch said.

    Ingredients for life

    Schulze-Makuch and Crawford’s work draws on results from recent space missions and sensitive analyses of lunar rock and soil samples that show the moon is not as dry as previously thought.

    In 2009-2010, an international team of scientists discovered hundreds of millions of metric tons of water ice on the moon. Additionally, there is strong evidence of a large amount of water in the lunar mantle that is thought to have been deposited very early on in the moon’s formation.

    The early moon is also likely to have been protected by a magnetic field that could have shielded lifeforms on the surface from deadly solar winds.

    Space-travelling microbes

    Life on the moon could have originated much as it did on Earth, but the more likely scenario is that it would have been brought in by a meteorite, Schulze-Makuch said.

    The earliest evidence for life on Earth comes from fossilized cyanobacteria that are 3.5-3.8 billion years old. During this time, the solar system was dominated by frequent and giant meteorite impacts. It is possible that meteorites containing simple organisms like cyanobacteria could have been blasted off the surface of the Earth and landed on the moon.

    “It looks very much like the moon was habitable at this time,” Schulze-Makuch said. “There could have actually been microbes thriving in water pools on the moon until the surface became dry and dead.”

    Lunar simulations

    Schulze-Makuch acknowledges that determining if life arose on the moon or was transported from elsewhere “can only be addressed by an aggressive future program of lunar exploration.”

    One promising line of inquiry for any future space missions would be to obtain samples from deposits from the period of heightened volcanic activity to see if they contained water or other possible markers of life.

    In addition, experiments could be conducted in simulated lunar environments on Earth and on the International Space Station to see if microorganisms can survive under the environmental conditions predicted to have existed on the early moon.

    UFO alert: Letter to President Jefferson may be earliest recorded visit of ALIENS

    FORMER US President Thomas Jefferson may have been sent the earliest recorded written observation of a UFO, according to a letter from 1813.

    A tavern keeper in Portsmouth, Virginia, and a friend visiting from Baltimore believe they saw a UFO in the sky.

    The two men, barkeeper Edward Hansford and Baltimore’s John Clarke, describe in their letter to President Jefferson how they saw a meteor-like object in the sky.

    However, this object in the sky began to change shape, first taking on the form of a turtle “which also appeared to be much agitated and as frequently obscured by a similar smoke.”

    The UFO then apparently “assumed the shape of a human skeleton” which ascended and descended quickly, according to the mail which was reprinted in 2010 in The Papers of Thomas Jefferson: Retirement Series.

    The letter reads: ““We the subscribers most earnestly solicit, that your honour will give us your opinion on the following extraordinary phenomenon.

    “We saw in the South a Ball of fire full as large as the sun at Maridian which was frequently obscured within the space of ten minutes by a smoke emitted from its own body, but ultimately retained its brilliancy, and form during that period, but with apparent agitation.

    “It then assumed the form of a Turtle which also appeared to be much agitated and as frequently obscured by a similar smoke.

    It then assumed the shape of a human skeleton which was frequently obscured by a like smoke and as frequently descended and ascended—It then assumed the form of a Scotch Highlander arrayed for battle and extremely agitated, and ultimately passed to the West and disappeared in its own smoke.”

    It is unclear whether President Jefferson ever responded, but according to the website Monticello, it “is perhaps the earliest recorded observation of a UFO.”

    A Photographer’s Journey Through the Heart of UFO Country

    From Area 51 to Roswell, a believer’s-eye view of the desert.

    State Route 375 is a barren stretch of Nevada highway that runs near the top-secret U.S. Air Force installation commonly known as Area 51—a facility believed to be used for experimental aircraft testing, with a busy side hustle spawning theories about aliens, UFOs, and extraterrestrial technology. Rachel, a town on the highway with a population of just 54, manages to do brisk business, too. The Little A’Le’Inn there, according to one of its managers, feeds thousands of (human) visitors a year along what has become known as the Extraterrestrial Highway. The mythology surrounding secret government programs and alleged alien crash sites has created a landscape unlike any other, studded with landmarks and roadside attractions that have become part of the lore of the desert.

    “[UFO sightings] have transformed cities and roads, turning the legend into part of everyday life,” says Javier Arcenillas, a Spanish photographer who documented UFO culture and sighting locations in the American West for his new photo book, UFO Presences.

    Extraterrestrial Highway, Nevada.

    Places such as the Extraterrestrial Highway and Roswell, New Mexico, about 1,000 miles to the east, have become beacons to an entire community. Roswell, according to a representative for the city, averages 226,000 visitors each year—and embraces its place in the mythos, despite the fact that it is easy to see the whole thing as a joke.

    “Ridicule is pockmarked throughout the entire phenomenon,” says Greg Eghigian, a historian at Penn State University and author of multiple research papers on the history of UFO sightings and alien contact. But he sees a deeper meaning in the way people connect with these sites. “What I consistently see across the board generally are people who are trying to find meaning,” he adds. “I think human beings are essentially meaning-makers and one of the ways, in fact, maybe the key way we often do that, is through stories. Stories bring meaning to our lives.

    “The desert is this place that, because it’s so empty, because there are so few people around … you can write something about your own life or about the meaning of bigger, more cosmic kinds of things,” he adds. Against that backdrop, he explains, people have created landmarks and elevated the locations of sightings to provide them with spaces to focus their energies. Ultimately, they’re grappling with some big existential questions in the otherwise stark desert landscape.

    The 1996 Varginha Episode – A Hoax? Hysterics? Or A Cover-Up?

    Written by Marcus Lowth  

    Estimated Reading Time: 9 minutes

    The alleged sightings of alien creatures in Varginha, Brazil in January 1996, for a time, captured the interest and imagination of much of the international media. Even more so when apparent witness statements claimed Brazilian military personnel had taken the extraterrestrial into their custody. Further claims soon surfaced of an apparent crash of a UFO. One which killed several of the occupants and forced those who survived to flee from the ruins of the crippled vehicle.

    1996 Brazil Alien

    The Brazilian authorities have always steadfastly denied any involvement in the case. However, some researchers have continued to dig away at the claims, even when one of the witnesses allegedly admitted they had concocted the story. And, on this occasion, these suspicious researchers might be correct to pursue their interest. To some, this sudden retraction by one of the initial witnesses to the events in the opening weeks of 1996 is just the latest in a long list of efforts to discredit those who wish to investigate these claims. And in turn, distance themselves, and the truth, from the public.

    The South American continent is a hotbed of UFO activity and has been for a long time. And the incident in Varginha remains one of the most well-known, and controversial. Of all the UFO researchers who have investigated the incident, leading UFO author, Timothy Good’s is one of the better communicated. He would dedicate an entire chapter to it in his book ‘Unearthly Disclosure’, published in 2000. Which was, relatively speaking, in the years immediately following the incident. Before we look at the account in detail, check out the short video below. It features A. J. Gevaerd testifying at a citizen’s hearing about the apparent crash and recovery.

    “Demon-Like” Creature, Huddled Against An Abandoned Building!

    On the afternoon of 20th January 1996, at a little after 3:30 pm, three young girls were walking together in Santana (in the north of Varginha). Sisters, Liliane and Valquiria da Silva, sixteen and fourteen respectively, and 22-year-old Katia Xavier, came to an open and vacated plot of land, and a most remarkable sight. In front of them, was a strange, “demon-like” creature, huddled against the wall of an abandoned cinderblock building. Its skin was a leathery brown color and it seemed to have a “triangular-shaped head” with large red eyes. Its limbs appeared much too small for its body, with an estimated height of two-and-a-half feet.

    As the trio remained where they were, unable to take their eyes from this bizarre creature, they noticed how it appeared as frightened as they certainly felt. They would later report how it appeared to “crouch lower” against the wall of the building, almost in an attempt to escape their gaze.

    After a moment the three girls turned and ran back to the main street. They would continue at full pace until they reached the teenage sisters’ home. It would take around twenty minutes for the ensuing situation to reach a level of calm in order that the account was understood. Katia, along with the sister’s mother would then make arrangements with a neighbor to return to the spot where they witnessed the strange creature. By the time they returned, however, the creature was no longer there. There was an impression on the grass where it had sat previously. There was also a distinct and strong smell of ammonia. This, incidentally, is an aroma noticed in the details of multiple close-contact reports.

    A UFO Crash In Varginha?

    Although they didn’t see the creature, someone else had. An elderly woman and her granddaughter had heard the three young girls’ screams when they had first spotted the strange figure. Although the girls themselves had already turned and left the area by the time the two witnesses arrived, the grandmother and young girl remained and discreetly watched events unfold. They would claim that a vehicle from the city fire department arrived. Firemen would quickly “secure” the creature, before driving away as if nothing had happened.

    The encounter would soon find its way to journalists and UFO researchers. One, in particular, Ubirajara Franco Rodrigues, would investigate further. His notes speak of his belief in the three girls “sincerity”. And furthermore, he would find more corroborating witnesses. Perhaps most interesting of these was a bricklayer Henrique Jose de Souza, who claimed to have seen a fire department vehicle at the location of the alleged sighting, although the time he claimed to have seen this was earlier than the time the three girls saw the creature.

    An even more explosive witness would come forward in the shape of local resident, Oralina Augusta. She would claim to have been woken just after 1 am in the early hours of 20th January by the sound of “bellowing cattle” on a local farm several miles away. When she went to her window, she could clearly see the cattle “stampeding” in agitation. And she could see why. Above them hovered a “submarine-shaped”, brightly glowing object. She quickly woke her husband.

    As both stared from their window, they could make out “grey smoke” rising from one side of the craft. It suddenly began to move but did so in a “rocky” stop-and-start motion. It seemed obvious to both that the craft was damaged in some way.

    More Than One Creature On The Loose!

    In Brazil, the fire department comes under the control of the military police. This, in itself, makes the claims of the fire department taking the creature into their control perhaps more credible. It would further come to light in the records of the Varginha City Fire Department of a call at 8:30 am on 20th January. According to the details of the call, a “strange creature” was roaming around in the woods on the outskirts of the city, not far from the site of the apparent apprehension later that afternoon.

    By the time the fire service arrived at the location, the records show three young boys reported to them they had seen the creature. The direction they claimed it was heading would (in theory) lead to the location of the three young girl’s sighting. Furthermore, two more residents (an unnamed man and women) would confirm the boys’ statement. The woman even recalled the boys were throwing stones at the creature. She would tell them to stop, which they did. It then disappeared into the woods.

    The fire department would send a small search unit into the woodland, but aside from the odd glimpse of something moving, there was no confirmed sighting. That was until two hours later when, according to the notes of Rodrigues, they managed to corner the creature. They managed to “net” it, noticing how it gave no resistance whatsoever, perhaps suggesting it was injured. Might this presence have been the one noticed by Souza?

    Thinking their mission complete, the commander was radioed. When he arrived, he ordered a complete sealing off of the area. Furthermore, the operation was now classified top-secret. According to the notes, more creatures were in the area. The searches would continue under the watch of Lieutenant Colonel Olimpio Vanderlei Santos.

    Hints Of A Cover-Up!

    Another creature was captured later that afternoon, taking the total to three, including the one witnessed by the three girls. An intense storm would break out shortly after, bringing a halt to the search for several hours. However, by 6 pm, the search units would venture back out into the woodland.

    Two officers (described in reports as “plain-clothed agents”) would locate and capture a fourth creature. Unequipped with the devices and tools of the search teams, the two agents forced the creature into the back of their car. According to investigations of local researchers, the agents would drive the creature to a small local clinic. However, the doctor would refuse them access to the premises and would refuse treatment. Instead, he urged that they take it to the hospital in the city.

    One of the plain-clothed agents, apparently identified as Marco Chereze, had “handled the creature with his bare hands” during its apprehension. Within days, he became extremely ill and was hospitalized with the loss of the use of all of his limbs. He would deteriorate rapidly, showing no response to any treatments. Ultimately, he would die on 15th February. However, the events that followed are disturbing, to say the very least.

    The hospital offered no explanation for the officer’s death. They did, however, order that his coffin was sealed shut and that the funeral should take place “within hours”. The family would sue the Brazilian military over Chereze’s death. However, the only new information they discovered was there was a “small amount of toxic material” in his body, and perhaps more damning, an apparent altering of official records showing that Chereze was not on duty on the night in question.

    Brazil Alien Sighting

    The spot of the sighting

    (Another) Alien Autopsy?

    According to Rodrigues’ investigations, an entire wing of the city’s hospital was off-limits in the days following the incident. Furthermore, the military would hold a meeting with all employees of the hospital. They would inform them the events of the last few days was a “training exercise for doctors and military personnel”. Perhaps more ominous, they were instructed to “deny everything” if anyone asked them any questions. Especially “that lawyer” (which was Rodrigues’ trade).

    On the afternoon of the 22nd January, three large military vehicles were present outside the hospital. At this point, the reports state the creature was still alive. By 6 pm that evening, however, it was dead. The military would place it in sealed high-tech containers ready for transportation.

    According to further investigations by local researchers, sometime around 4 am the following morning, in the early hours of the 23rdJanuary, a convoy of military vehicles led by a “yellow Volkswagen van” left the city of Varginha. Their destination remains unknown.

    Some claims state that Sr. Fortunato Baden Palhares would lead the autopsies of the presumed alien creatures. He would always deny this. However, according to a student who asked him about this apparent autopsy in the late-1990s, he stated that he would “really love to give you an answer, but please, ask this question in ten or fifteen years from now”. Perhaps Dr. Palhares was being rather optimistic on the disclosure he seems to be suggesting would happen.

    An American Presence!

    Further investigations would reveal at least one US agent on location in Varginha from the 20th to the 23rd January. Furthermore, it would seem that NORAD had warned the Brazilian authorities the week previously on 13th January 1996 that it had “tracked a number of unidentified objects over the western hemisphere that night. And that one or more had penetrated Brazilian airspace”. Whether one or more of the unidentified objects in question crashed to the ground somewhere in Brazil that evening, quite possibly near Varginha, is open to debate. There is, however, a report of such an incident.

    Carlos da Souza was driving along the Fernao Dias highway early on the morning of 13th January. He was less than five miles outside of Varginha when he suddenly heard a “muffled roaring sound” coming from overhead. When he turned his attention skyward, he could see a cigar-shaped silver craft traveling approximately fifty miles per hour. He could clearly see four windows along the side of the craft, which he would estimate to be around forty feet long, He could also see a jagged tear or crack at the front of the object. Thick, white smoke poured outwards into the air from this mechanical wound.

    The craft soon overtook Souza, and for ten minutes he followed the silver object. However, after that, it disappeared in a “dive” over the tops of the trees. From Souza’s vantage point, there was no doubt it had came down somewhere in the woodland.

    Varginha Alien Sighting

    Advanced Notification From NORAD?

    He continued to drive his truck in the direction he believed the object came down. After several minutes came proof of his conviction. He brought his vehicle to a stop, not wanting to get any closer. In a field ahead of him, he could see the scattered silver remains of what was obviously the cigar-shaped craft that had passed overhead only minutes earlier. Surprising to him, was the presence of around forty soldiers, who were busy gathering up the wreckage and hauling it onto military vehicles. That they were there so quickly didn’t add up to Souza. Of course, we know now that they were likely acting on information from NORAD.

    He noticed a piece of silver material not far in front of where he stood. He moved to it and picked it up. As he did so, however, one of the soldiers shouted out to him to leave immediately. He did so but claims that when he stopped for coffee several miles down the road, “two military men in civilian clothes” would approach him. They knew his name and informed him in no uncertain terms that he was not to talk about what he had seen.

    While there is no absolute proof of Souza’s account, it does correspond with the apparently leaked information about NORAD – details that Souza wouldn’t have been aware of at the time. What is for certain is the case very likely has more to it than a simple hoax. And, at the same time, very likely carries disinformation so as to further hide the truth of the events of late-January 1996 in Varginha, Brazil.

    The video below looks at this most intriguing case in a little more detail. One, like many other such controversial cases, divides opinion in the UFO community.

    Secret Documents On Pentagon UFO Project Released: Invisibility Cloaks And Wormholes

    Secret Documents On Pentagon UFO Project Released: Invisibility Cloaks And Wormholes

    Secret UFO Pentagon papers released.

    Shockwaves went through the UFO research community last December when it was revealed that the Pentagon had been conducted research into UFOs under the auspices of the Advanced Aviation Threat Identification Program (AATIP). Now, two documents relating to the program had been released to the public shining some light on the elusive and mysterious project.

    Documents Shine Light On Mysterious Object

    The first document is a letter written back in 2009 by the now-retired Senator Harry Reid to the Secretary of Defence in which he outlines the aims of the program and encourages the Department of Defence to carry on funding the project. While Reid did not make any overt references to UFOs, he did write that the staffers working on the program had made significant progress "with the identification of several highly sensitive, unconventional aerospace-related findings."

    Invisibility Cloaks, Wormholes, And Brain-Machine Interfaces

    The second document is perhaps even more significant. It contains a list of scientific studies conducted within the AATIP and some of them have sparked extraordinary excitement online. According to the document, the AATIP was working on a number of fascinating projects including invisibility cloaks, wormholes, and brain-machine interfaces.

    Receptionist Document

    It also appears that the researchers were attempting to identify and track UFOs with a project aimed at detecting and following ‘hypersonic velocities’. There was also a reference to improving the statistical approach to the Drake Equation which quite certainly is a reference to communication with extra-terrestrial life.

    Last Project On The List Redacted

    As though this incredible list of projects hadn’t given UFO researchers enough to talk about, the last project on the list is tantalizingly redacted. Given the extraordinary nature of the projects that the AATIP have admitted to having conducted it is presumed that this particular set of experiments must have been something truly sensational.

    Document Line

    UFO researchers have waited for years to discover what the United States government were investigating in the skies. Given that these extraordinary documents are now being released into the public domain and whistleblowers seem keen to offer up further information it is hoped that whatever has been kept under wraps will be public knowledge before long.

    Another Amazing Yet Complex Crop Circle Emerges In Cley Hill, England

    Complex Crop Circle

    Less than a year ago, a fascinating crop circle has emerged in a barley area in Cley Hill measuring about over 300 feet in diameter.

    The amazing formation depicts curled edges with two arcs containing bends at each side of the scalloped top. What makes it even more breathtaking is its inner cube with 12 radiating triangles.

    But the real mystery that troubles everyone is how this crop circle appeared here?

    Such stunning formations emerge all the time bringing mystery for everyone including the scientific community. All in all, crop circles are definitely something intriguing enough worth our attention.

    “Some of these formations are so immense and complex as to defy reason. And after all these decades, none of the perpetrators have been caught in the act of making any of the truly extraordinary formations. – Richard Dolan, historian, author and a UFO researcher. (source)

    If you start digging up deeper into the reality of the crop circles, you will soon realize that they are more fascinating than you have imagined.

    Even though the scientists believe these formations are artificial, many times, they are tongue-tied when it comes to their appearance.

    Richard Taylor, a physicist at the University of Oregon, issued a paper in 2011 regarding this strange phenomenon.

    Crop circle arts are not going to give up their secrets easily. This summer, unknown artists will venture into the countryside close to your homes and carry out their craft, safe in the knowledge that they are continuing the legacy of the most science-oriented art movement in history, he stated in his work.

    Down below we present you some pictures from the amazing crop circle. (source)

    However, as you may already guess, this is not the first crop circle that ever appeared on our planet.

    Below we have a picture of yet another one that emerged in Wiltshire, England in 2001. Back then, its amazing but complex looks gave rise to a lot of confusion.

    The structure contained 409 circles that form a Triskelion which is known as the ancient symbol of Sicily.

    Richard Taylor, the previously mentioned scientist dedicated a lot of studies on these circles. According to his beliefs, this was one of the greatest art revolutions in history.

    He studied the grass involved in the act in his lab and came to a conclusion that the ones who create a crop circle must be using GPS devices, lasers and microwaves in order to create such design.

    Beautiful photos! Full moon eclipse and Mars

    Lunar Eclipse, ISS Flyby and the Mars | July 27, 2018

    Earth flew between the sun and Mars this week, so, during yesterday’s total lunar eclipse, the moon and Mars were close. Photos from the EarthSky community here.

    Prabhakaran A wrote from Trichy, India: “The full moon on the night of July 27-28, 2018 presented the longest and darkest total lunar eclipse of the 21st century. Totality spanned 1 hour 42 minutes and 57 seconds. The most distant and smallest full moon of the year passed through the center of the Earth’s dark umbral shadow which reached its maximum length and width for the year. This beautiful eclipse happened on the same night of Mars opposition.”

    Nurul Fathin wrote, “An optical effect called the ‘Japanese Lantern’. This image was taken during the eclipse of July 28, 2018 at about 3:24 a.m. at the Telok Kemang Observatory in Port Dickson, Malaysia.”

Had to be very patient for clouds to pass over, but then sky opened up very clear. I cropped out Mars as it was so bright in photo and therefore appear blurred. Fantastic early morning experience. I read EarthSky every day and look up info using Star Walk 2 or Solar Walk 2.” That’s a great way to use EarthSky, Tom! We also hear good things about the online planetarium software Stellarium.

    Helio C. Vital in Saquarema, Brazil saw the eclipse at moonrise, when the moon was still low in the sky. Hewrote: “The moon was very low during totality (9 degrees above the horizon only at U3)! I first spotted the moon some 25 minutes after its rise as I had predicted. Such delay was due to the fact it was thousand of times dimmer than the usual full moon when it crossed the horizon. The moon was many times darker than Mars when I first glanced it, only 5 degrees above the horizon at 17:48 (UTC-3h). It was a therefore a dark eclipse not due to recent major volcanic eruptions, but due to the fact the moon crossed the center of Earth`s shadow where the shadow is very dark.

    The Bexleyheath UFO Landing

     Written by Marcus Lowth  

    Estimated Reading Time: 8 minutes

    In the early-to-mid-1950s, UFO sightings, much like in the United States, were increasingly common in the UK. Even incidents of landings and humanoid encounters were relatively rife. Although officially, there was no governing body investigating these reports, we know from our article looking at Room 801 that this wasn’t the case. In fact, to some, the sudden decline in sightings as the fifties bowed out to the sixties, and more specifically how the media would treat them (if at all) was suspicious.

    Bexleyheath UFO

    Writing in ‘Flying Saucer Review’ in 1960, journalist Roger Muirfield states, “Although I cannot explain why the truth is being suppressed, I am certain it is merely a rearguard action that is being fought, consciously or subconsciously, by those who are responsible for the molding of public opinion”. Muirfield, was one of many, who would suspect a “censorship” of such mainstream reporting by “officialdom”. And while he is perhaps prepared through his words to give the benefit of the doubt, many researchers today are not as forgiving. And given that the sightings, as well as contact incidents and abductions, have continued since it is hard not to share their perspective.

    One sighting that enjoyed multiple witnesses during this time was the Bexleyheath Landing in July 1955. Not only did an apparent alien craft land in the middle of a busy street in a London suburb, but the incident took place in the middle of the day.

    “Thing Had Landed In The Roadway!

    It was somewhere between 12 and 1 pm on the 17th July 1955. Fifteen-year-old laborer, Rodney Maynard, along with the rest of the workers at a building site in Bexleyheath, a borough of London in the United Kingdom, were in the middle of their lunch break. As they ate and chatted noisily among themselves, news reached them that “something was happening” in a nearby street, King Harold’s Way. After a second or two of quiet contemplation, the group of thirty men moved, as if as one, to the nearby road.

    When they reached it, they could see a “thing had landed in the roadway”. It was so large it stretched across the entire width of the road and onto the pathways. Maynard would recall in the early 2000s that “it had about eight massive suckers” on the underside which touched the ground and appeared to hold the craft’s weight. He would further state that “the center was still, but the outer rim was spinning slowly”. White lights also flashed “like a camera flash”. There was also a low but very audible humming noise.

    Maynard further remembers the craft had “windows but the glass was concave and molded together so you couldn’t see it”. This is an interesting detail. In our article looking at the sightings of the late UK UFO investigator, Tony Dodd, he mentions how the glass of the UFO had an effect like that of modern bathroom glass that prevents one from seeing through it.

    When one or two of the builders became brave enough to move forward in an attempt to touch the craft “it began to spin faster”. It then began to rise and moved towards Bedonwell Primary School. The apparent spaceship hovered for several moments before shooting directly upwards and disappearing.

    Not A Hoax Or A Prank

    Maynard’s sixteen-year-old brother also witnessed the incident. He too would recall years later that the craft was “black, sleek, and streamlined”. It also had a polished metal finish to it. Furthermore, there was not a doubt in anyone’s mind that the incident was a hoax or a prank.

    Another key witness to the Bexleyheath encounter was Margaret Fry, who was a young woman in her twenties at the time of the incident. On the day in question, Fry was on her way to an appointment at the General Practice in King Harold’s Way. During her visit with Dr. Thukarta, the pair noticed such a commotion outside in the street that both would witness the object land for themselves.

    According to Fry, the craft was “saucer-shaped” and had a mixture of dark colors. She would state over four decades later that it was “blue, silver, grey, pewter (in) texture, yet none of those colors”. Furthermore, the craft had three spheres on the underside. One of these “flopped out” just prior to landing (this perhaps contained the “eight suckers” witnessed by Maynard). A group of children eventually walked towards the craft, intrigued to get a closer look. However, it would rise beyond their reach as soon as they entered its immediate vicinity.

    The sighting is still unexplained, and with many of the witnesses in their advanced years, with several having passed away, it is a sighting that will perhaps hold its secrets ever tighter as the years go by.

    Bexley UFO Sketch

    Recent Sightings Over Bexleyheath

    Although the landing in Bexleyheath is over half-a-century away now, more recent sightings have put the area back on the UFO map. In 2010, two separate reports within weeks of each other had many in the UFO community looking intently at the London borough.

    On the evening of 20th April, Deborah Perry witnessed around “thirty flying crafts” in the sky overhead. She at first thought they must have been part of the traffic at London City Airport. However, after viewing them for over twenty minutes she began to realize there was something more mysterious than mere planes to them. She would recall how they were not behind each other and in a definite group formation. They all also moved at the same slow pace. Furthermore, “there was absolutely no noise” with each light having a “bright white light like an aura” around it. She continued to watch as they moved across the sky before vanishing.

    Less than two weeks later on 2nd May, Debbie Fitzgerald, along with her husband, would notice a “bright orange light in the sky” over their home in Bexleyheath. It was moving at a considerable pace, faster than a plane, yet was completely silent. Several moments later, a second “red pulsating light” was visible.  Both lights then disappeared.

    While these more recent sightings were both from a distance, six years previously, another pair of sightings in Bexleyheath took place in closer proximity to the witnesses.

    Another Near Landing In King Harold’s Way?

    In September 2004, two separate UFO sightings again put the eyes of UK UFO enthusiasts firmly on it. On 13thSeptember 72-year-old, Dorothy Godfrey would report to the London media platform, ‘News Shopper’ that she witnessed three UFOs hovering over her home. From the grounds of her bungalow, Godfrey claimed to see three “light bulb-shaped” crafts overhead, which then “zipped” through the air and vanished.

    Only five days later, on 18th September, came another sighting. This time, from King Harold’s Way, the location of the 1955 landing. As 52-year-old, Diane Taylor sat in her living room watching Saturday night television, a mysterious glow suddenly invaded the room from outside.

    She would later describe the object in much the same way as Godfrey, “like a light bulb”. According to Taylor, her daughter was the first of her household to actually see the craft. As she was looking out of the window, her daughter rushed into the room claiming “it’s a UFO” excitedly. Taylor would state that almost as soon as she had focused on the object it sped off.

    She would further claim that her husband also saw a UFO near their home, thirty years previously. Bob Taylor saw what he claimed to his wife to be “something resembling a fireball”. Although she dismissed his sighting at the time, she is now in two minds regarding the UFO phenomenon.

    The short video below is a recent clip of a UFO filmed over the Bexleyheath area.

    “Mushroom Without A Stem!

    Perhaps it is worth examining a case that occurred almost exactly a year previously to the initial Bexleyheath sighting, in July 1954, in Lyddon, Kent. At around 5 am, Harold Carpenter, an employee at a stately home, awoke to the sound of humming coming from outside. This had happened almost every morning, at the same time, for the last few weeks. On this occasion, and partly through irritation, he got out of bed, dressed, and went outside to determine just what the source of this humming was.

    Once outside, the sound seemed to emanate from a wooded area known to the workers and locals as Sunny Calvert. He made his way to the area, and in turn towards a steep looking slope. It was then, when he looked down, that he could see the strange object and what surely was the source of the annoying humming.

    The object seemed to be hovering around ten feet from the ground. It was a dark grey color and resembled a “mushroom without a stem”. He moved slowly down the slope, eventually settling under a group of trees for cover. From here, he could see underneath the craft. He would estimate it to be around twenty feet in diameter. Even stranger, though, were the five “peculiar looking” entities on the ground directly below it.

    They were no taller than five feet high and each carried what looked like “jam jars with handles” in one hand, and an instrument they used to pick things up from the ground in the other. All were dressed in identical one-piece grey suits which covered everything but their faces. Their faces, incidentally, appeared “human but expressionless”, aside from the nose. Their noses were similar to that of a pig’s.

    A Brief Meeting Of Stares!

    It was then that Harold noticed the humming had stopped. He also noticed that in his excitement at watching this most remarkable event unfold before him he had unwittingly walked out from his secure spot under the trees. In fact, he was now only ten feet away from this other-worldly vehicle. Then, one of the humanoids noticed his presence and turned towards him.

    As Harold stared back at the figure, the others stopped what they were doing and turned to face him also. A surge of fear went through him as he began to back away as calmly as he could. He realized the figures were also retreating and boarding the craft, which now hovered only a foot or two from the ground.

    After all of them were on board, the craft began to rise into the air. It would move to one side in order to negotiate the trees above it before beginning to increase its speed. Harold remained where he was, watching as the craft grew steadily smaller. Then, without any warning, a bright flash filled his vision. When his eyes focused a second later, the craft was gone.

    1954 UFO UK

    A local newspaper “proof sheet”of Jessie Roestenberg’s encounter (below)

    The 1954 Encounter Of Jessie Roestenberg

    Around three months after the encounter of Harold Carpenter, came a similar incident in October 1954. This time in Staffordshire in the West Midlands. Late in the afternoon, with the sky beginning its rapid descent into darkness, Jessie Roestenberg suddenly heard a sound like “water being poured on a fire” coming from outside. She quickly went to the door of her small cottage, going outside to check her two sons were safe. Each lay on the ground, staring upwards. When they noticed her each shouted, “There’s a flying saucer!”

    As Jessie made her way outside she suddenly felt a compulsion to look upwards. Above her was an object shaped like a “huge Mexican hat”. It shined brightly and was made of a “metallic-silver substance” and had a dome on top of it. Further still, she could clearly see two “beautiful occupants” inside the dome. Each had long, golden hair, and each wore the same style pale blue one-piece suit. From her vantage point, she could see that the bottom of the faces were human-looking. She could also see, however, that the top half of their heads were “proportionally larger”.

    Jessie would later recall how the atmosphere changed and she had the feeling of time standing still. She was also “paralyzed with fear” during the encounter. She suddenly thought about her children and moved her focus in their direction. When she looked back to the UFO, it was no longer there. They managed to pick out a small dot in the sky. It was circling in a bizarre manner. Jessie was satisfied this was the craft, even more so when it “shot away” and vanished completely.

    The short video below features an overview of the Staffordshire incident. Just one of many in the UK in the 1950s.

    Cosmos: New Season Will Present Possibilities of the Future

    Neil deGrasse Tyson and Cosmos producers discuss the upcoming season and the importance of science and truth at Comic-Con.

    The third season of the epic Cosmos series will present what is possible for the future of our planet and potentially habitable worlds elsewhere. According to producers of the show, science hinges on truth, and in a time in which the public struggles with both of these concepts, Cosmos is in a unique position to shed light on how important both are to our existence.

    The new season is titled Cosmos: Possible Worlds. National Geographic promoted the show at this year’s Comic-Con, where Den of Geek was able to interview the show’s host, Neil deGrasse Tyson, as well as some of the producers.

    “[Cosmos: Possible Worlds] is a voyage in space and time into the distant future to various exoplanets, the stars, other suns as well as a trip into the future of this planet that I think will captivate and inspire,” says producer Ann Druyan.

    Druyan co-wrote the original Cosmos series in 1980 with show host Carl Sagan and Steven Soter. She went on to marry Sagan and remained married to him until his death in 1996. Druyan created the second Cosmosseries which aired in 2014 and is now an executive producer and writer for Cosmos: Possible Worlds set to air in early 2019. 

    Druyan said Cosmos is important because science is important. She also makes the point that the bedrock of science is truth.

    “Science requires of us that we actually be truthful,” Druyan says. “Science says it matters what’s true, unlike so much of our existence. And so, if we are going to survive and if we are going to explore the universe, you cannot B.S. your way to Mars.”

    “And so, I say,” Duyan continued, “We have to reintroduce into our public lives and our personal lives that belief at the core of science that makes science so much more effective than anything else we do. Which is that it matters what is true.” 

    Producer Jason Clark echoed the sentiment that the story of Cosmos is bound by truth.

    “We have to be sure everything we do is accurate and truthful,” Clark says. ‘In today’s world where there are so many alternate facts, it’s great that we get to employ the scientific method to tell our story.”

    Clark stresses that Cosmos: Possible Worlds is not a negative story about the possibility of a “dystopic kind of future.” Instead, it is a “positive vision of what is the future, how fast thing can change, and how much opportunity we have.”

    Tyson is also excited to bring science to the public and says with Cosmosthey attempt to present science in a way that is more acceptable to general audiences. He says when we teach science, it is often, "here is this body of knowledge, learn it." High school and college students “slug through it” and then continue with their lives.

    “You give your textbook back, and then you are done,” Tyson explains. “So, we are not trained to think of science as a fundamental aspect of what it is to be alive.”

    “So what Cosmos has done in all three incarnations, what he have done is present science in all the ways that you see that it matters,” Tyson continues. “Not only to you, and understanding your place in the universe, but also to what role it can play in survival. What role it can play as informing us as shepherds of our own civilization as well as the ecosystem that sustains it.”

    When it comes to science, “rather than beat people over the head, ‘you must listen,’ that’s not the right way to do it I don’t think, you offer it,” says Tyson. “[Cosmos] is an offering that will empower people to recognize and embrace what role science plays in their lives.“

    It is a formula that seems to work. When Cosmos: A Spacetime Odysseywas released in 2014, Clark says over 135 million people watched it. According to National Geographic, it was their most watched series ever internationally.

    The original, Cosmos: A Personal Voyage, also set records when it aired in 1980. At the time it set the record for the most watched program on public television in history. It held that record for a decade.

    Tyson credits Sagan for paving the way to enable scientists to participate in educating the public on the fruits of their efforts on television.

    “He pioneered this enterprise if you will,” Tyson says. “The idea that you would make a career, a big part of what your career would represent, is bringing hard-earned research to the public.”

    Tyson says Sagan faced resistance from colleagues who were taken aback by Sagan leaving the laboratory to bring science to television. But now it is a function of what some scientist, like Tyson, strive to incorporate into their career.

    “It is a privilege to do so,” says Tyson “It is an honor to do so, and Cosmosis probably the most expressive evidence of this activity that we have today, and most impactful I would say as well.”

    Why so few arrests for Crop Circles makers? Is there microwave evidence?



    There have been hundreds if not thousands of Crop Circles popping up mysteriously for decades and some historical records that indicate they might have been happening for centuries. When they first drew attention as possibly being related to UFOs they were still limited to simple circles. Then they started becoming more complex and there was no doubt that hey could be an unexplained natural phenomena. 

    This was first explained away years ago as hoaxer when Doug Bower and Dave Chorleyconfessed to doing it for years as a hoax. They claimed they were responsible for crop Circles dating back decades. The circles have been appearing all over the world and there is no way that just these two could have done it, but there have been more people saying they're creating the hoaxes. They were eventually paid £10,000 for their exclusive interview, which means that if they were telling the truth they were satisfied with their hoaxes for decades without any compensation or attention doing an enormous amount of work and never getting caught or telling anyone. 

    This is the accepted explanation for the skeptic community. 

    Farmer David Gwinn seems to accept this explanation and claims Not aliens: 'Clever' crop circle was vandals, says Shropshire farmer 08/12/2015 Why haven't many people been arrested for this vandalism? As far as I can tell there is only one arrest that I've been able to find fifteen years ago. 

    Police Make First Arrest Over Crop Circles, (By Cahal Milmo 11/04/2000) when they arrested Matthew Williams after photos were sent to them anonymously. According to an article The Anatomy of Deception another group of hoaxers trying to prove that it can be done without getting caught were paid to do at least one Crop Circle shaped like a van over the course of two days with police protection before trying to do one without getting caught at night, and they were caught almost immediately. Supposedly they were unable to reproduce any of the unusual biophysical and electromagnetic features including blown out nodes that are supposedly done as a result of microwaves according to some research. 

    A quick search of the internet turns up an article supporting Team Satan and one with additional criticism. The supporters "A Circular State of Mind" wrote Crop Circle Challenge 2013: Team Satan Respond, which seems to satirize it more than address any of the details. 

    The additional criticism was included in Nancy Talbott's Letter to National Geographic TV's Mr. Sydney Suissa about an offer to participate in another TV show, where she claims that Team Satan was involved in additional scams including taking credit for a circle that had already been created as part of their debunking efforts. This letter also includes criticism about bias on the part of National Geographic which seems to be a pattern with traditional media outlets covering Crop Circles, or many other subjects, for that matter. She also claims that they haven't been able to reproduce the blown out nodes which she believes may have been created as a result of microwaves. 



    Nancy Talbott and several other researchers have all claimed that these are common in Crop Circles and can't be replicated by using the simple planks and ropes that most hoaxers claim to use. From what I've seen the skeptics don't refute this; instead they ignore it when possible or try to distract people from it or use ridicule. On at least one show about Crop Circles someone speculated that may be the ones with the blown out nodes caused by microwaves are just the simple circles caused by an unusual phenomena that they haven't discovered yet and the designs that are clearly done with intent are the hoaxers. They did no obvious follow up on this speculation like checking to see if the facts confirm this; instead they threw it out there, perhaps expecting some to accept this as a possible explanation. However Nancy Talbott's website, BLT Research crop circles sites numerous examples that indicates it isn't the case. Most people that get their information from traditional media might not be aware of this or many of her other claims. 

    About thirteen years ago the Discovery Channel did a show that attempted to explain how these blown out nodes might have been created. After the show aired there were several articles on the internet claiming there were problems with it, however like most other people that watched it at the time I wasn't aware of this so I'll get back to it. Several MIT students had a microwave generator of some kind which was more difficult to carry in and out of fields than the simple planks of wood other alleged circle makers claim to use. They also had to wear protective clothing made out of lead or something similar since the microwaves could be harmful to people. Part of the show included some clowning around which might serve well for entertainment purposes. This isn't uncommon in UFO shows or many other shows but it distracts from the issue. 

    After some troubles they claimed that they were able to replicate the unexplained characteristics although there was some indication that they might not be fully convinced. There was no discussion about whether other circle makers might have known this decades earlier or why they would go to such extreme measures to create hoaxes. Nor was there any discussion about the possibility that if hoaxer had been using this for a large number of circles over decades that they almost certainly would have had some kind of accident with this kind of equipment and gotten caught or that the microwaves would inevitably cause health problems. 

    Even if this really was possible and they could work out the problems it seemed highly unlikely that this experiment could have explained all these crop circles and how the nodes were blown out. that was basically my impression even before I heard about concerns expressed by Nancy Talbott, who was cited in the show implying her approval. Searching the internet for this show no longer turns it up or anything from the Discovery Channel that I can find but there are plenty of articles exposing it as a fraud including one by Nancy Talbott, M.I.T. Kids' Crop Circle Attempt Yields an Interesting (And Totally Inadvertent) Result. She claims that even with all their work they still weren't able to replicate the blown out nodes among other things. 

    This means that even though they cheated they still weren't able to explain how the Crop Circles are made, which actually fits a pattern for several other unexplained phenomena including how ancient megaliths were moved and how ancient civilizations were able to do enormous volumes of carved sculptures that are difficult if not impossible to replicate by technology allegedly known to people in those times, and even now in some cases. 

    I went into this more on 107 Wonders of the Ancient World and an old string discussing Megalith moving experiments which failed to move many if any megaliths above ten tons without cheating. The biggest experiments they tried that I know of were 25 and 40 tons and as far as I can tell they cheated and still only had a very limited success. Further explanation is in the two sources cited. this isn't adequate to prove that the megaliths were moved with influence from an unknown intelligence that causes UFOs, assuming a natural explanation can't be found for the UFOs; however it is adequate to indicate that there are major unsolved mysteries and from a scientific point of view it isn't unreasonable to develop theories then try to either confirm or refute them. 

    I have found that most of the research presented by the media about UFOs is full of incompetent claims from both sides and an enormous amount of their claims are so easy to discredit that I can't help but wonder if they're trying to do an honest job at all. Many of thees mistakes are too easy to recognize so I strongly suspect that they're intentionally doing more to confuse the issue than educate the public. If that is their objective it is successful; however if people take enough time to look at it, with rational skepticism, not to be confused with pseudo-skepticism, then they can find plenty of legitimate unsolved mysteries, even if they can't provide conclusive evidence to fully explain one theory or another. And the one presented by the traditional media always seem to have a large number of flaws that can rule them out to rational skeptics. Which means that sincere rational skeptics might do better to come up with their own theories. 

    This is why I suspect the government just might have decided to "Recruit a group of crackpots" (further discussion in ATS string about MJ-12) as the semi-fictional Roswell movie speculated about. Whether this is true or not the vast majority of information from the traditional media about this subject, and most others, is very poorly done; and the most reliable information comes from sorting through alternative media outlets. However in this case even most alternative media outlets on the subject also have their problems, and most theories will almost certainly fall apart, although claims that there are no unsolved mysteries also fall apart. 


    This is why it might help to have hard facts to fall back on when bizarre theories fall apart and the megaliths and crop circles provide that. Megaliths provide rock solid evidence that activities that can't be replicated took place thousands of years ago and if Nancy Talbott is right then crop circles indicate that other unexplained phenomena still occur. It is hard to tell whatetails without additional back up information is speculative and rational skepticism should be m to conclude from this but the crop circles continue happening so if researchers are sincere they might be able to narrow things down. This could be potential evidence of an unknown advanced intelligence that has been on or near Earth for thousands of years; however filling in the daintained. 

    One claim that people should be especially skeptical of is the assumption that this unknown advanced intelligence might be benevolent, or the most extreme malicious claims. If they were inclined to invade like the war of the worlds, and they've been here for decades, if not thousands of years they would have already done so, and if they were benevolent there would be no need for secrecy. One example of that recently is ‘Aliens prevented nuclear war on Earth’: Edgar Mitchell Former NASA astronaut makes unexpected claim. (08/13/2015) If aliens were benevolent they almost certainly would have opened up a line of honest communication relatively shortly after they arrived, if it was possible. 

    Shortly after this story came out Edgar Mitchell claimed he was misquoted in another article, The UFOs Didn't Come In Peace! Astronaut Sets Record Straight On ET Nuclear War. 08/27/2015this is typical of the information available about UFOs which often turns into bickering but Edgar Mitchell has still been claiming for years that he believes that UFOs are real and that they may involve alien intelligence. 

    The appropriate way to earn trust requires an open line of honest communication. If these aliens really were benevolent and they arrived thousands of years ago they could have provided advise that could have dramatically reduced wars and other atrocities that have taken place since then. 

    Instead, if they influenced cult structures that may have been associated with the megaliths and religion they might have inspired the religions that helped prop up the authority of many tyrants and maintain a steady state of war, often based on religious beliefs. 

    Some of the theories about obtaining technology from aliens include assisting with moving the megaliths and more recently according to Philip Corso's book "The Day After Roswell" they reverse engineered alien technology to create some of the scientific advances over the past 6 decades. Bob Lazar also makes similar claims but both of them have credibility problems so their claims can't be entirely true. However if they're party true then this technology is being used primarily to benefit those that control it and a lot of it is being used to increase their control of the public and maintain a permanent state of war. Corso's claims also include sharing technology with companies like Monsanto, which implies the possibility that we're being used as research subjects as part of a genetically engineered development of crops which are fed to people. If this technology isn't from aliens the research is still going on for other reasons so there should still be demands for disclosure, at a minimum. 

    If people take this hypothesis seriously then the aliens wouldn't be benevolent since they're giving tacit approval, at best, by remaining silent and allowing their technology to be used in such a foolish and authoritarian manner. 

    This hypothesis may sound a lot like the Ancient Aliens series that has been on the History Channel for the past five or six years. This series has an enormous amount of blunders like in the introductory two hour show one of the leading theorists, Giorgio Tsoukalos, says that when he went into the tunnel of an ancient Egyptian tomb his lighter didn't work because there wasn't enough oxygen; however if this was the case then he shouldn't have been able to breath there clearly indicating his conclusion makes no sense at all. The series is full of one blunder after another. Many of them were addressed in Ancient Aliens Debunked; however even though these skeptics are far more rational than the high profile Ancient Aliens theorists they still don't explain how some of the giant megaliths were moved or some other ancient mysteries. 

    This would fit in with the "Recruit a group of crackpots" hypothesis; however consideration should be given to other explanations why there are so many blunders from both the theorists and the so-called skeptics, who are often as manipulative as the theorists. 

    Edgar Mitchell is just one many other astronauts or other government employees including military members that have come out with disclosures about UFOs. the strong implication is that either there is a conspiracy to cover up UFOs or there is a conspiracy to make it seem like UFOs exists and are controlled by aliens. Also It is hard to imagine hoe this could come about without a conspiracy one way or another but I'm sure some skeptics will come up with their ideas. 

    No doubt this all sounds absurd, and it is. However there are an enormous number of absurd things that actually are happening. It is hard to look at the political discussion that is now typical without thinking it is absurd; yet no one is claiming that their clownish behavior isn't happening. 

    The truth is as absurd as many bizarre conspiracy theories. 

    The following related articles include some crop circles that are relatively new; looking in Google news typically turns up more; and the first two sites include crop circles that have been compiled over several decades.

    Heeft u ook kunnen meegenieten van de totale maansverduistering? Het bijzonder uniek spektakel van vrijdagavond was meteen de langste van de eeuw. Tussen 22.22 uur en 23.15 uur stond de maan volledig in de schaduw van de aarde staan en kleurde ze bloedrood. Dat leverde prachtige beelden op.

    De maansverduistering bereikte haar hoogtepunt om 22.22 uur. Ze was minstens gedeeltelijk te bewonderen in Europa, het Midden-Oosten, Afrika, Australië en het grootste deel van Azië en Zuid-Amerika. Van overal werd het spektakel met grote belangstelling gevolgd, met prachtige foto’s als resultaat.

    Het was een uitzonderlijk lange maansverduistering: ze was slechts vier minuten korter dan wat astronomisch mogelijk is.

    Lang wachten

    Op sommige plaatsen was het spijtig genoeg lang wachten tot de bloedmaan kwam piepen van achter het wolkendek. Bij de volkssterrenwacht Mira in Grimbergen bijvoorbeeld, waar verschillende honderden bezoekers waren opgedaagd om met behulp van telescopen de volledige maansverduistering van nabij te zien, moesten de aanwezigen tot 23.30 uur wachten om het fenomeen te aanschouwen. 

    Bij de sterrenwacht van Grimbergen maakten jong en oud zich op om de eclips te bewonderen.

    Tussen 21.30 en 23.15 uur was er een totale maansverduistering, maar die is in Grimbergen niet te zien geweest. “Op het ogenblik dat de maan door de wolken brak was de verduistering al wat aan het afnemen en was deze nog enkel aan de linkerkant van het hemellichaam te zien”, aldus Mollet.

    Maar vanwege de regen die rond 23 uur in Grimbergen neerviel, had de volksterrenwacht op dit ogenblik al haar telescopen weer moeten binnenhalen en bedekken.
