UFO sighting: Strange lights over San Diego prompts extraterrestrial speculation
UFO sighting: Strange lights over San Diego prompts extraterrestrial speculation
UFO hunters were on high alert when strange lights were spotted over San Diego prompting speculation of an alien invasion.
Another resident of San Diego, Nicky Fox, wrote on Twitter: “Extraterrestrial lights randomly appearing in the air of Pacific Beach, San Diego.”
One user, Fluttergirl9, posted on Reddit: “I’m in the San Fernando Valley right now and I couldn't believe how many UFOs were in the sky tonight.”
However, Government officials moved to calm the nerves of San Diego residents and came out with an official response to the sightings.

They state that the strange lights were actually flares released as part of a military test drill 30 miles (50km) off the coast.
But this official explanation still did not conspiracy theorists chins from wagging.
Spirit Walkers commented on a YouTube video of the event: “The most hilarious thing about all these videos is the DESPERATION of all the gov shills trying to explain away each anomaly. ‘Go back to sleep, it's flares…Drones!’.”
While Twitter user Joe Martin contacted prominent conspiracy theorist and former Blink 182 band member Tom DeLonge, who is now a self-proclaimed truth seeker for UFO activity, to ask: “Howdy @tomdelonge , what do you make of this? It was in our (San Diego) night sky tonight. The official word is that it was a military flare exercise. I don't agree.”
New play In Your Skies is partly inspired by the infamous UFO incident in Rendlesham Forest in Suffolk.
Lights in the sky, alien space craft, military cover-ups in the woods, they are the stuff of science fiction and conspiracy theories.
Now a Norfolk theatre company is hoping to combine the two in a new play and is seeking people with real-life stories of strange goings-on to help them.
Diss-based The Keeper’s Daughter is currently developing In Your Skies, a play that will explore the life of ufologists and the wider UFO phenomenon.
As part of the research in October, the theatre company are holding two public events at Flying Saucer Cafe in Ipswich and Biddy’s Tea Room in Norwich and they hope UFO investigators and anybody who has seen unexplained lights in the sky will share their experiences.

The play is partly inspired by the infamous 1980 incident in Rendlesham Forest in Suffolk that has become the UK’s most famous alleged UFO sighting.
American officers stationed at the former RAF Woodbridge site reported seeing strange lights and an alien craft on two occasions. The mystery has inspired for books, documentaries, a feature film and even a UFO trail in the Forestry Commission woods.
Mark Finbow, The Keeper’s Daughter artistic director and co-founder, said: “It’s fascinating and over the years there have been so many versions of the story. Whatever the truth is that people are seeking they are never going to find it. I think something happened but I don’t believe it was aliens and most of the people I’ve spoken to so far don’t believe that either.”
In Your Skies is being developed in conjunction with Eastern Angles, DissCorn Hall, and The Garagre in Norwich.

To research the play, he has already met investigator Brenda Butler, who published a book on the Rendlesham incident in 1984 called Sky Crash. Now he hopes to get other stories too.
The resident theatre company at Diss Corn Hall, The Keeper’s Daughter specialise in science fiction stories. Recent productions includes sci-fi rom com Tomorrow is Your Hope and Wandering Spectre, a children’s ghost story inspired local memories from the people of Diss.
Mr Finbow said: “I prefer the human stories so really this play will be about people who search for UFOs, why they search for them, why this has become a compulsion, possibly obsession, for some of them. They want to believe and you are much more likely to see something if you want to see it.”

The first results of In Your Skies, which is being developed in conjunction with Suffolk theatre company Eastern Angles, will be unveiled in Ipswich and at The Garage in Norwich in February, before it tours the region later in 2019.
As Lisa Barnes points out, if the meteor managed to make it to land, you probably shouldn't grab souvenirs. Remnants belong to the state and any discoveries should be reported to Gravity Discovery Centre.
Lots of reports coming in about a meteor in the sky over Perth last night. Senior astronomer at Gravity Discovery Centre Richard Tonello tells @6PRbreakfast even if a piece hit the ground, it technically belongs to the State Govt & should be reported to the museum #perthnews
Finding actual pieces of meteor is questionable — according to Professor Phil Bland, director of the Desert Fireball Network which studies the fallen space rocks, only about 2 to 3 percent of visible meteors make it to the ground.
But Bland is hopeful. He told ABC that considering how bright it appears on camera, the object must have been large. Larger meteors have a greater chance of making it through Earth's atmosphere intact.
"So that is really exciting," he said.
ABC reports that the Desert Fireball Network should be able to pinpoint where the meteor landed by the end of the day.
Videos : UFO camouflage? Rare clouds that look like UFOs Or is it really a UFO camouflage?
Videos : UFO camouflage? Rare clouds that look like UFOs Or is it really a UFO camouflage?
Different UFO enthusiasts are convinced that aliens are hiding behind the big cloud and that the clouds should be just their cover, with which they can discreetly observe people. However, experts are more skeptical about this theory.
Such a view of the sky, it do not often comes along. This is an interesting, quite rare, lenticular clouds or almond shaped. Even has its name – altocumulus lenticularis. It occurs when air rises rapidly through the topographic barrier
Simply put: if the airflow is obstructed, such as high mountains, begins to rise and is condensed. This provides the cloud, often consisting of two or more layers. When to add extra shine and illuminate them nicely, they may resemble massive fixed object, such as a UFO. Beauty!

Germans . Beyond time and space. NAZI UFO 1935-1945. part3. Secret Nazi Experiments.
At the end of World War II, when the defeat of Nazi Germany was almost certain, the US Army began to discover secret underground laboratories and factories throughout the territories. Missile systems, new cannons, jet planes, an atomic bomb, this is just a fraction of what has come to the surface. German advanced technologies and research were miles away from the rest of the world.
But what happened to the best scientists of the Third Reich and state-of-the-art research? Workers in secret factories used prisoners from concentration camps. Almost everything that has been found in these strictly classified places has come to an end in the US. This in essence reflected the world’s power from non-human research. But what did the Germans also prepare, and what were their plans, which never saw the light of the world?
During World War II, flying plates were developed. This fact is really incredible, although research has probably never achieved the desired results. There are theories that should have been used to transfer a planned atomic bomb.
Official testimonies say that the Germans were far from developing a real atomic weapon. So they told the Nuremberg court. On the other hand, what is the fact? In 1945, Kurt Diebner’s scientific team had to test the atomic bomb at a German shooter in the Jonastal Valley, where we can now look for increased radioactivity. There are also several witnesses gathered by German historian Rainer Karlsch in the book Hitler’s Bomb. Other sources say that Hitler considered nuclear physics to be a Jewish science, and he did not want to share anything with nuclear research.
Solar weapon The project led by renowned rocket scientist Hermann Oberth had planned to create 22 miles above the ground a huge mirror that would be 100 meters wide and the Nazis would be able to burn any city on the sunny rays or arrange a nice weather on the Rimsko Seme. The metal sodium colossus was supposed to be (fortunately) finished up to 50 or 100 years after designing it.

In 1946, one year after the war, 27 US military ships, 4,000 soldiers and 400 scientists flocked to the shores of Antarctica. After two weeks, however, they have suffered huge losses, and so far this megalomania action is only talking about harmless research. Even after almost 70 years we still wonder what is hiding in Nové Švábsko? It was during the Second World War, when the Germans declared part of Antarctica as their territory and was named after New Swabia, and there were many mysterious German submarines that did not go back on its shores. Allegedly, there have been research institutes in newly-discovered warm lakes. But what really happened there?
Too many unanswered questions, many concealments and few answers. It is definitely a phase of history that needs to be deeper. But it could be a dangerous game.
With Mars Dust Storm Clearing, Opportunity Rover Could Finally Wake Up
With Mars Dust Storm Clearing, Opportunity Rover Could Finally Wake Up
By Mike Wall, Space.com Senior Writer
If NASA's Opportunity Mars rover is still alive, we should hear from it relatively soon.
The solar-powered Opportunity hasn't made a peep since June 10, when a worsening dust storm plunged the rover's environs — a spot on the rim of the 14-mile-wide (22 kilometers) Endeavour Crater called Perseverance Valley — into deep darkness.
"The sun is breaking through the haze over Perseverance Valley, and soon there will be enough sunlight present that Opportunity should be able to recharge its batteries," John Callas, Opportunity project manager at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, said in a statement.
Mission controllers are already trying to hail Opportunity three times a week, beaming beep-eliciting commands via the big radio dishes of NASA's Deep Space Network (DSN) during times when the rover might be awake. But as soon as a measurement of atmospheric opacity known as "tau" dips under 1.5, the DSN communication campaign will step up significantly, Callas said. (At the dust storm's height, tau got all the way up to 10.8. More recently, it's been down in the 2-to-2.5 range.)
The clock will start ticking for Opportunity upon the initiation of this campaign.
"If we do not hear back after 45 days, the team will be forced to conclude that the sun-blocking dust and the Martian cold have conspired to cause some type of fault from which the rover will more than likely not recover," Callas said.
"At that point, our active phase of reaching out to Opportunity will be at an end," he added. "However, in the unlikely chance that there is a large amount of dust sitting on the solar arrays that is blocking the sun's energy, we will continue passive listening efforts for several months."
Opportunity has been exploring the Martian surface for more than 14 years. The golf-cart-size rover and its twin, Spirit, touched down in different locales on the Red Planet three weeks apart in January 2004.
Both rovers embarked on 90-Earth-day missions to hunt for signs of past water activity on Mars. And both found lots of such evidence, and then kept rolling along. Spirit last communicated with Earth in March 2010, but Opportunity remained healthy and productive until the dust storm forced it into a sort of hibernation.
The biggest threat to the rover in its current state is cold weather, mission team members have said. Opportunity cannot operate its onboard heaters, so if temperatures drop too much, some of the robot's critical internal components could break. But there's a silver lining to the dust clouds: Dust traps heat, making the potentially dangerous Martian nights a little warmer than they otherwise would be.
"In a situation like this, you hope for the best but plan for all eventualities," Callas said. "We are pulling for our tenacious rover to pull her feet from the fire one more time. And if she does, we will be there to hear her."
I thought I’d check out what ufo videos are out there caught on a flir camera, well actually I mean thermal imaging camera Flir is a brand name. Nearly all flir ufo captures are by military and police forces.
but there are some or atleast one guy I found on YouTube, capturing ufos on a thermal imaging camera. At first I thought there was 2 guys, 1 called UFO MAN and 1 called UFO HUNTER but I’m pretty certain it’s the same guy.
I really want one of these things but at $2500 or £4000 in the U.K for a small camcorder sized one, to $125, 000 for a second hand military grade looking job on eBay, I think I’ll give it a miss.
Ive quite frankly had enough of this shitty little island being ripped of by everyone ...including its own people
$2500 is £2000, so who ever is buying them into Britain is being ripped off .....or the fecker is ripping us off, I suppose it don’t matter cause I can’t afford one.
anyway, I got 3 videos, one is military footage caugh by the puertorican authorities and the other 2 are by the guy called ufo hunter. But this first one is completely mind blowing, not only is it a good capture but it’s what happens towards the end! The ufo goes into the sea and comes out split into 2 separate ufos and although that’s pretty awesome, that isn’t the bit that gets me ...it’s the fact that when it enters the sea, it does not appear to effect it in anyway ....no slowing down, nothing! It doesn’t even seem to make a splash??
To me it just confirms that ufos are not really there “ physically” there is something else going on? But it’s anyones guess what
heres the first video and it’s the military one:
the next 2 are from that ufo guy and are no less impressive. And let me say before anyone calls birds. Birds fly in unison and tend to only over take the other, when taking turns to lead the pack and it is not done at such speed as they are already flying nearly as fast as they can!
ive never seen ufos like this before, they are flying in formation and look to me like an intelligent organic living thing, like someone mentioned the ufos could be in the first video. I’ve always thought orbs could be somekind of living thing ....sky jelly fish or summin? 😆
Let’s face it there could be anything out there beyond human comprehension
"Beyond the Sky" reveals the truth behind UFOs and Alien Abductions
"Beyond the Sky" reveals the truth behind UFOs and Alien Abductions
Fulvio Sestito is having a real moment in Hollywood with his second movie ‘The Curse’ entering pre-production just as his directorial debut ‘Beyond the Sky’ is set to light up the theatre screens.
This autumn, critics have suggested, the world will be stunned by what has been hyped as the terrifying UFO movie to hit the big screen in years.
Beyond the Skies shines a new light on alien abductions
The movie centres on a UFO sceptic named Chris Norton. Norton has spent his life surrounded by stories of UFO abductions and alien encounters, and he believes with all his heart that they are nothing more than nonsense and delusion. He sets himself the mission to debunk claims of alien abductions once and for all and heads into enemy territory to just that.
At a UFO convention, Norton seeks out alleged abductees to confirm his suspicions that they are either lying or just crazy. At first, it seems like Norton’s suspicions are about to be approved until he meets Emily who claims that she has been abducted every year for the past seven years on her birthday. Chris is intrigued by Emily and thinks that there might be more to her story than meets the eye, and so he agrees to accompany her on her birthday which is only a few days away.
What happens next will change Norton’s mind about the UFO phenomenon and open up a seriously terrifying new reality that he could have never imagined existed.
Critics who have seen the film have praised its high-stakes thrills and superb writing team along with the all-star cast of cult movie darlings including Ryan Carnes, Jordan Hinson, Peter Stormare, Dee Wallace, Martin Sensmeier and Don Stark.
The trailer for what is guaranteed to be one of the must-see movies of this year can be viewed below.
WETENSCHAPNa drie maanden is de enorme stofstorm op de planeet Mars eindelijk gaan liggen. Door de storm kon de onbemande verkenner Opportunity, die op zonne-energie werkt, de afgelopen maanden geen onderzoek doen omdat de accu leeg was. Nu de zon opnieuw begint te schijnen op mars, kan de Mars-rover zijn batterijen weer opladen. Als hij het nog doet tenminste.
Volgens de Amerikaanse ruimtevaartorganisatie NASA “breekt de zon door de wolken boven Perseverance Valley”, de plek waar de verkenner geparkeerd staat. Als de lucht op Mars helder genoeg is, probeert NASA een signaal naar de Opportunity te sturen om een idee te krijgen hoe de verkenner eraan toe is. Als ze na 45 dagen nog niets hebben gehoord, gaan ze ervan uit dat de verkenner onherstelbaar beschadigd is door de stofstorm.
De stofstorm werd op 30 mei voor het eerst waargenomen. Op 10 juni liet de Opportunity voor het laatst van zich horen. In 2007 overleefde de Mars-rover een nog veel grotere storm. De kou die daarmee gepaard ging, betekende volgens de NASA vermoedelijk wel het einde van tweelingbroer Spirit, die toen ook op Mars rondreed.
De Opportunity werd in juli 2003 gelanceerd en landde in januari 2004 op Mars. De verkenner rijdt al ruim veertien jaar rond op Mars, terwijl de missie oorspronkelijk negentig dagen zou duren. Hij heeft inmiddels iets meer dan 45 kilometer afgelegd en vond een paar weken na zijn landing al sporen van water. Nader onderzoek wees uit dat de Opportunity op de kustlijn van een opgedroogde zoute zee stond. Later vond de verkenner nog meer bewijs dat er miljarden jaren geleden water stroomde op Mars.

Coördinaten van Grote Piramide komen overeen met lichtsnelheid. Is dit bewijs voor buitenaardse invloed?
Coördinaten van Grote Piramide komen overeen met lichtsnelheid. Is dit bewijs voor buitenaardse invloed?
Als je de afmetingen van de Grote Piramide afzet tegen de exacte coördinaten van de evenaar, kom je tot de ontdekking dat het bouwwerk een soort schaalmodel is van het noordelijk halfrond. Dat wordt gesteld in het nieuwe seizoen van het tv-programma Ancient Aliens.
Aan de hand van satelliettechnologie is recentelijk nog iets opmerkelijks ontdekt.
Als je de locatie van de Grote Piramide weergeeft als een coördinaat, komt dat coördinaat exact overeen met de snelheid waarmee het licht reist.
Ook andere bouwwerken op aarde, zoals de Meso-Amerikaanse piramides en Ziggoerats in Mesopotamië, blijken niet zomaar ergens te zijn gebouwd.
“Deze gebouwen zijn neergezet onder goddelijke leiding,” zegt Jonathan Young, curator van de Joseph Campbell Archives.
“Dit is een merkteken van de goden,” vervolgt hij. “Ze hebben bepaalde dingen in die gebouwen gestopt om ons te laten weten dat ze niet geheel van menselijke oorsprong zijn.”
“Ze staan voor iets groters,” aldus Young.
Het zou om die reden geen toeval zijn dat bepaalde sterrenbeelden zijn uitgelijnd boven oude bouwwerken.
Zo komen de drie piramides op het Gizeh-plateau overeen met de drie sterren in de riem van Orion. Datzelfde geldt voor drie piramides die in Teotihuacan staan.
Lying just off the southern coast of Italy is a small archipelago of islands that comprises the island nation of Malta. The country has a unique and colorful history, first settled in 5,900 BC and then passed through a succession of rulers over the millennia, including the Phoenicians, Carthaginians, Romans, Byzantines, Arabs, Normans, Sicilians, Spanish, French, and British, due to it Naval importance, and finally becoming a British colony in 1814, before gaining independence in 1964. With such a long history spanning back for millennia, Malta is known for its splendid ruins, historical monuments, and ancient sites, but one of these places stands out; a mysterious underground complex that holds with in it many enigmas and oddities that remain unsolved to this day.
The place known as the Hypogeum of Ħal-Saflieni, or also just simply the Hypogeum, was found quite by accident, when in 1902 some workers were digging cisterns at a housing development in the town of Paola when they broke through into what seemed to be an immense chamber of some kind. This chamber seemed to be part of some larger structure that had sat down there in the darkness away from human eyes for a very long time, but for some reason the workers decided to cover up their discovery, meaning that the true extent of this bizarre place would not be uncovered until later.
When word got out that there was a mysterious subterranean complex of unknown origin lying down there right under the town, archeologists were quick to swarm to it, and it would soon prove to be one of the most important and interesting archeological discoveries of the century. Dated to as old as 4,000 BC, it was and still is thought to be the oldest underground complex in the world, and here was a Neolithic structure that held temples, shrines, altars, vast warrens of tunnels that meandered off into the dark, burial chambers, all painstakingly cut directly into the surrounding rock and littered with countless objects such as statues, figurines, pottery, stone and clay beads, shell buttons, amulets, axe-heads, and many, many others. Yet, perhaps the most notable and macabre discovery down there in this ancient place long buried and forgotten down in the bowels of the earth were the remains of an estimated 7,000 individuals, along with numerous burial tools, leading to the theory that this massive complex was meant as a necropolis, or basically a city of the dead, a giant tomb.
The Hypogeum of Ħal-Saflieni
It was already all a mystery as to who had built this place, how it had remained hidden for so long, and why it was packed with thousands of dead people, but these were by far not the only mysteries awaiting discovery in this dark, forgotten place. By far one of the most well-known mysteries of the Hypogeum is the discovery of numerous very anomalous skulls scattered amongst the many remains found there, and uncovered at what appears to be a sacred well adorned with statues of a goddess.
The skulls in question were immediately striking in that they were abnormally elongated and larger than normal human skulls, and further analysis showed that some displayed some kind of mysterious genetic abnormality, while others held evidence that their skulls had been intentionally bound to make them that way, similar to a practice among priests in ancient Egypt, Mesopotamia, and South America. A few of the skulls are very odd indeed, showing an inconsistent pattern of, and in one case a complete lack of, the cranial “knitting,” a line across the skull denoting the fusing of cranial plates, also called the fossa median, which are the plates of the skull that are separate in infancy and later join together into adulthood. This baffled the researchers who looked at them, as there is no known genetic abnormality or mutation in humans. Most of the strange skulls also demonstrated evidence of having undergone some mysterious surgical procedure, with three small holes drilled into the head for unknown reasons.
These bizarre skulls prompted wide speculation at the time, and still do. Why did these individuals have these mysterious elongated skulls and what was its significance? One of the earlier ideas was that these remains represented a whole new race of humans or a new mutation, while others suggested it had some religious implication or was some sort of sign of status. There was also the idea that these could have been settlers from Egypt, where the elongation of skulls was a documented practice, or were descendants from an unknown Maltese tribe or lost civilization. Other more far-out theories have been that these are the remains of ancient aliens or interdimensional travelers, while others say that they were attempts to enhance psychic abilities, or even that they were the remnants of the displaced population of the lost continent of Atlantis.
One of the mysterious Malta skulls
It is hard to say for sure because the skulls themselves have been so little-studied, and remain cloaked in shadow. After their discovery, 11 of the bizarre skulls were put on display at the Archeological Museum of the Valletta, after which they were suddenly removed without explanation, with access strictly limited, making it nearly impossible for anyone to adequately study them. Indeed, some of the only evidence that we have that they ever even existed at all are some photos and records by Maltese researchers Dr. Anton Mifsud and Dr. Charles Savona Ventura. Adding to the mystery is the fact that apparently several of the skulls have gone missing over the years, with only 6 of the original 11 remaining. What happened to the others? No one knows, and it has added a layer of dark government conspiracies and cover-ups upon the whole thing. As a result of all of this, the weird skulls of Malta have remained hotly debated and their exact origins unknown.
While we don’t know exactly where they came from or why they were there, these skulls are not even the most outlandish mystery of the Hypogeum. In the 1930s, a worker from the British Embassy by the name of Lois Jessop came forward with a truly bizarre account from down in the depths of the Hypogeum. She claimed that she had been exploring the ancient subterranean tunnels on a guided tour by candlelight when she came to burial chamber with a steep drop that plunged down into the murk. When she used her candle to look down through the darkness she claims that she saw something very strange down there in the abyss, and she looked down there as someone held onto her sash to keep her from falling, and would explain of what happened next:
I held my candle higher and peered down into the abyss, thinking that with this dangerous drop it was better not to go on further without a guide. Then I saw about twenty persons of giant stature emerge from an opening deep below me. They were walking in single file along another narrow ledge down below. Their height I judged to be about twenty to twenty-five feet, since their heads came up about half way on the wall on the opposite side of the cave. They were covered in long white hair, combed downward and shaggy looking. They walked very slowly, taking long strides. Then they all stopped, turned and raised their heads in my direction. All simultaneously raised their arms and with their hands beckoned to me. The movement was something like snatching or feeling for something, as the palms of their hands were turned down.
Things get even spookier a few weeks later, when Jessop claimed that there had been a group of 30 students and some teachers who had gone down into the very same chamber, only to mysteriously vanish after the cave collapsed behind them. Screams and cries for help could purportedly be heard echoing out from somewhere within for days, even as search parties looked and failed to find them, before finally giving way to silence. Their bodies were never found. After this, the government then supposedly went in and boarded up the tunnels, closing them to the public. Jessop’s tale was published in the publication The Journal of Borderland Research, but her veracity has been controversial since she would go on in later years to express an intense interest in UFOs and even become head of a UFO research organization. Was her account true, and if so what did she see down there? Who knows?
Other oddities of the Hypogeum have been uncovered in recent years as well. For instance, it has been found that the cave consistently produces sound frequencies that fall within the range of 110 to 111 hertz, which is known to have physical and mental effects and is too consistent to have been an accident. It is thought that this place was specifically chosen and designed for this effect, and that it served some as yet unknown purpose for these people or beings. With its air of mystery, unclear origins, unidentified remains, mystical features, and its otherworldly skulls, the Hypogeum of Malta, which managed to remain hidden from civilization for thousands of years, just may hold many of its enigmas for thousands more.
A rod was seen shooting past a security cam just as a Tesla shoots past and became airborne. It appears the the rod, an alien probe was following along side the Tesla to observe its technology and abilities. I mean, how often do you see Tesla cars flying past? Its a rare thing, but probably going to become more common since they are lighter and faster than their gas counterparts.
Now youtube videos can be slowed down. Hit the settings button in the video bar, hit speed, then hit .24. That will make it 1/4 the speed. This way you can see the UFO and the Tesla both.

Three Mile Long UFO Found On Google Moon, Aug 31, 2018, UFO Sighting News.
Date of discovery: Aug 31, 2018 Location of discovery: Earths moon Method: Google Moon Coordinates: Unknown, northern region I was looking at Google Moon map at a UFO that was parked near a crater edge so it was partly hidden in the shadows, when all of a sudden Google Moon crashed. It happened just a second before I was about to copy the Google coordinates. I did not expect that to happen. Its almost like Google was trying to keep me from devolving the location of this UFO. I will however still make a post about it, and one day, someone else will find the coordinates of it again. I did get some great screenshots of it before it crashed. The UFO is 3 miles long and 1 mile wide. Its standing on legs in the shadows. Why did Google Moon crash when my mouse curser was on the coordinates to copy? Could be a program glitch or it could be Google is helping to hide the existence of aliens. Since Google is the largest search engine in the world in control of the worlds total Internet knowledge...it only make sense to use it to the governments advantage. Scott C. Waring
Fireball Lights Up Sky Over Western Australia (Videos)
Fireball Lights Up Sky Over Western Australia (Videos)
By Elizabeth Howell, Space.com Contributor
Dash cam footage shared on Twitter shows the bright blue light
A fireball lit up the sky over the Australian city of Perth late Tuesday (Aug. 28), reportedly generating a powerful shockwave that rattled houses in the area — and some observers caught the dramatic event on video.
Perth's fire and emergency department started receiving calls about the meteor today at 7:40 p.m. local time (7:40 a.m. EDT and 1140 GMT), according to the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC). Several people captured fireball videos with CCTV cameras and dash cams and sent the footage to the Perth Observatory.
"We heard the boom; we saw the light. We just thought it was lightning to start with, but the boom that came after it was definitely not thunder," Robyn Garratt, a resident of York — which lies about 60 miles (100 kilometers) from Perth, the capital of the state of Western Australia — said in an interview with ABC Radio. [The Dazzling Perseid Meteor Shower of 2018 in Photos]
"In York, people felt a lot more than that," Garratt added. "They all went running outside, thinking the sky was falling, basically."
Meteors are incoming space rocks that hit Earth's atmosphere, sometimes producing a powerful light show and/or shockwaves detected by people on the ground. Any pieces of that space rock that make it to the ground are called meteorites. (A fireball is any meteor that blazes more brightly than Venus in the sky.)
Scientists from Curtin University in Perth are among the people trying to determine if any meteorites were generated from the fireball. With so many videos available, university researchers are working to triangulate observations to narrow down the search, Phil Bland, director of the Curtin University-run Desert Fireball Network, told ABC.
"It will look strange. Iit will have a black crust on it, and it'll be kind of slightly rounded in a way that most terrestrial rocks aren't," Bland said. "It will look distinct; it'll look odd. Also, they're usually a little bit heavier than average rocks."
Earth gets hit by space rocks every day, in sizes ranging from tiny pebbles to much larger objects. While most of these impacts are harmless, occasionally a meteor generates more damage.
A prominent, recent example of a more damaging eventtook place over Chelyabinsk, Russia, in 2013, when a meteor broke up in the atmosphere and its shockwave shattered thousands of windows in the city below, injuring about 1,500 people. This particular space rock was probably about 65 feet (20 meters) wide when it crashed into the atmosphere, but much smaller fragments were retrieved on the ground.
It’s no secret that humans (well, at least presidents) are aching to go back to the Moon. And now, we have more concrete plans on how we might do that. Earlier this week, the Human Exploration and Operations Committee for NASA’s Advisory Council presented the most detailed plan to date of how, exactly, it will go about it.
NASA’s plan involves something called the Deep Space Gateway, aka the Lunar Orbital Platform Gateway. First announced in March 2017, the Gateway would be a small habitat that would orbit the Moon and would act as a “spaceport for human and robotic exploration to the Moon and beyond.”
In other words, it would act as a basecamp to explore the surface of the Moon, conduct experiments into the viability of prolonged space travel, and prepare for much (much) farther destinations. According to the presentation this week, NASA plans to have the completed Gateway in lunar orbit as soon as 2024 — that is, if everything goes according to plan.
“Right now, our near-term focus is the Moon and returning humans there,” Kathryn Hambleton, a NASA spokesperson, tells Futurism. NASA’s teams are planning to use the space beyond Earth’s orbit near the Moon “to build up our technology capabilities, test our systems, and test our operations while we are still a few days from Earth before we are ready to take on the multi-month journey to Mars.” To do all that, though, it needs the Gateway in place.
During its meeting, which was open to the public, the Advisory Council noted that the Gateway will be made up a couple of main components:
The Power and Propulsion Element (PPE): The component that powers the Gateway and allows it to move to different orbits.
The Airlock: A point of exit that could be used for astronaut spacewalks or permit other types of rockets to dock to the Gateway.
The Habitat: Pressurized sections of the Gateway that will house up to four crew members for up to 90 day missions.
But before astronauts can populate the Gateway, NASA has a lot of work to do. And it’s gotta do it all in the next six years.
Step 1: Build a giant rocket called the Space Launch System (SLS). Here’s how it would go. The SLS will launch major components of the Gateway into lunar orbit between now and 2024. In 2024, NASA’s Orion Spacecraft that’s currently in development would nudge those pieces into place, making the Gateway ready for human inhabitants.
To send a crew of astronauts all the way to the Gateway, SLS is going to need a rocket capable of sending 37 metric tons (81,000 lbs) of cargo into orbit around the Moon. Right now, we don’t have a rocket that can tow that much — SpaceX’s Falcon Heavy’s max payload to the Moon is estimated to be around 18 to 22 metric tons. Engineers are going to have to figure out how to double that capacity to make the SLS happen.
Complete the SLS and the Orion Spacecraft, and find funding for all components of the Gateway, and launch it into lunar orbit, and send the first couple of astronauts there by 2024? Pretty darn ambitious. Especially since so far the SLS’ development hasn’t exactly been smooth sailing.
The private space industry might help NASA get there. The space agency is hoping that a private space company will take on the substantial task of developing the lander that Gateway astronauts will use to travel from their habitat to the surface of the Moon, but no official partnership has been announced yet.
The Gateway’s doors (or airlock) will be open to rockets launched by both government space agencies and private companies. Since companies like SpaceX are making giant technological leaps — they’re launching rockets that are more powerful and cheaper — they could take a big a big load off of NASA’s back. “There will definitely be opportunities for a variety of rockets to deliver supplies and logistics to the Gateway,” says Hambleton.
Even with private space companies on board, NASA will inevitably face some major roadblocks to getting the Gateway up and running. There’s still the inherent risks that astronauts face during deep space travel – intense levels of radiation, isolation, a lack of gravity, and harsh environments.
Luckily, NASA’s research is well underway, particularly from studies conducted on the International Space Station. “We are working towards greater reliability of systems and more of a closed-loop kind of system in terms of recycling air and water, so we’re less reliant on Earth for those consumables,” Hambleton tells Futurism. No matter the outcome of these experiments, however, NASA still plans to make the Gateway happen in the stated timeframe.
Yes, NASA has a lot of work to do before the Deep Space Gateway is peacefully orbiting the Moon. Six years go by pretty fast, but making things happen in that timeframe is no impossible. With the right public-private partnerships and international collaborations, NASA has a much better shot at getting astronauts back onto the surface of the Moon, and maybe to Mars before we even know it.

WATCH HOW A LIGHTNING STRIKE TEMPORARILY DISABLES THIS UFO’S CLOAKING SHIELD
It seems electrical disturbances have an impact on a UFO’s cloaking device, as evidenced by the following video.
An unidentified flying object’s cloaking shield is one of its best assets since it allows the craft’s occupants to remain undetected while performing their obscure activities on Earth.
Visible light can be considered an oscillating electric and magnetic field and because the cloaking shield works on a visible level, it must operate on some kind of electromagnetic principle we’ve yet to discover. You know what else is electromagnetic? The immense power surge caused by a lightning strike. So it makes sense that when a camouflaged UFO is hit by the thousand or so Giga Watts discharged by a lightning bolt, some interference may occur.
In the following video we are treated to the rare sight of such a phenomenon.
During a recent thunderstorm in the U.S., a large, circular UFO became visible after coming in contact with the immense voltage of an electrical discharge between clouds. It is unclear whether the craft was accidentally hit or it was there exactly for that reason. Perhaps these advanced vehicles are able to harvest energy from a variety of sources, including, but not limited to volcanoes, lightning and solar wind.
After lightning touches its surface, the UFO becomes visible for approximately 30 seconds during which it remains lit and illuminates the sky and clouds surrounding its massive body. Once the UFO disappears, the surrounding area returns to its normal luminosity.
Although videos like this are rare, they are not unheard of. In a previous article, we showed you a fleet of UFOs recharging their batteries during a thunderstorm. Another video that quickly went viral featured a creepy UFO exiting a lightning storm at a high velocity.
It’s obvious that aliens always need two things: human specimens and a whole lot of power.
As a NASA astronaut for 20 years, Michael Lopez-Alegria conducted 10 spacewalks and set a U.S. record for total spacewalking time (67 hours and 40 minutes) that still stands. Now he heads business development for Houston-based Axiom Space, which aims to send private “spaceflight participants” up to the space station (for $55 million a seat), then to attach its own commercial module to the International Space Station, followed eventually by a free-flying commercial station of its own. Lopez-Alegria talked to Senior Editor Tony Reichhardt in June.
Air & Space: The Russians were taking paying customers up to the space station every couple of years in the early 2000s, but we haven’t seen any of those spaceflight participant flights in almost a decade. What happened?
Lopez-Alegria: Pretty simple. At the time, the station had three crew members, and we were rotating one of the three on shuttle flights and the other two on a [three-seat] Russian Soyuz, leaving a third seat open. Once the shuttle stopped flying, all three crew members started rotating on the Soyuz, so there were no more seats available. The demand was still there, but there was no supply.
What was the idea behind Axiom Space?
Our co-founder, Mike Suffredini, was NASA’s program manager for the International Space Station for ten years until he retired in 2015. He went to work with the other co-founder, Kam Ghaffarian, who at the time owned a company called SGT, which is a large contractor with NASA. They wanted to investigate the viability of a commercial space station, and after studying it for about a year Mike thought it was doable. And here we are.
Bigelow Aerospace already has an experimental module attached to the station, and is planning a commercial module of their own. How is your plan different?
We’re largely appealing to the same markets, which, in the beginning anyway, will be foreign professional astronauts as well as spaceflight participants. There are a couple other lines of revenue—research, space manufacturing, advertising, and something called exploration systems testing. When NASA starts going to points farther than Low Earth Orbit, like cislunar space or Mars, they want to have tested the support equipment and other critical components in space before they deploy them to places that are a lot harder to get to. It’s a lot easier to go fix something in Earth orbit than it is to fix something orbiting the moon. So that’s a sixth line of business, working for the companies and governments developing hardware for exploration.
We’re different from Bigelow in that they use expandable technology, which is sort of like a balloon that they inflate. We are going with a more proven system, basically an aluminum cylinder. Our module is going to be manufactured by the same guys, Thales Alenia, who have built something like 40 percent of the habitable volume on the space station. We don’t want to try anything that’s super hard. I mean, we don’t have much time to get this done. The ISS is going to be de-orbited somewhere between 2024 and 2028, maybe a little later. But this is still a pretty ambitious endeavor. It will take time, and we want to make sure we can get this stuff up there and activated. Trying that with new technology doesn’t seem like the path to success for us.
What does NASA have to do to make it happen?
They have to grant access for somebody to use one of the space station’s berthing ports. There’s only one port located in a place where you could attach something big enough to call a space station, or the beginning of a space station. So we think NASA needs to get on with whatever competitive process they want in order to decide which company is worthy of putting their confidence in.
If you’re an investor, and I come to you to invest a whole bunch of money, you’re going to say “What are the risks?” And if I say, “One of the risks is that we may not win this docking port,” you’re going to think twice. So until that docking port is granted, it’s going to be very difficult to raise a lot of money, and until you raise the money you can’t start constructing a module. So the first domino has to be the granting of the docking port. Then construction comes, and we can launch and dock and activate and start making revenue, and prove our worth to NASA so they can say okay, now we can retire the ISS, because we are confident we’ll have a place to go [in low Earth orbit]. Because we really don’t want a gap in our capability to work in Low Earth Orbit.
Has NASA given any indication of when they might start this competition for the docking port?
Oddly, two years ago, in the summer of 2016, they issued a request for information where they asked industry, “If we wanted to give away [the docking port] what criteria should we use?” A bunch of companies, 19 of us, responded, and NASA indicated that the responses were going to form the basis of a solicitation. But then the election happened, and I don’t pretend to know why it’s taken so long, but they still haven’t done it yet. Recently they issued what’s called a NASA research announcement, asking a lot of the same questions they did in 2016. So we’re encouraging them to use the data they already have to develop a [solicitation].
What agreements do you already have in place with NASA? Even before you attach your own module to the station, you want to send up paying customers, right?
Yes, that’s right. We’re getting a lot of interest from investors in spite of the lack of a docking port, because [flying private customers to the ISS] is already a sustainable business in and of itself. We would like to get NASA and other ISS partners comfortable with our operation. Flying to the ISS and demonstrating that we know what we’re doing is going to be good for them and for us, although we already have a ton of NASA experience within our company. So that’s a real reason to do these precursor flights. We have one planned in 2020, and another one or two planned in 2021. Then we’d like to get our modules up there in 2022.
We have a Space Act Agreement with NASA , and the first phase is complete, a kind of feasibility study to outline what services and utilities we would need from the station. We need to get some power and cooling capacity, et cetera, and we’d need to know how our module affects the mass and center of gravity of the station. So they’ve done all that preliminary work.
Have you already got customers lined up for the 2020 and 2021 flights?
No, we’re talking to [potential customers]. We only recently [in June] announced our campaign to market spaceflight participant flights. We’re agnostic as to which launch vehicle we’d use. It could be Soyuz, which has three seats, it could be the SpaceX Dragon, which has four, or it could be Boeing’s Starliner, which has five. Let’s take the Dragon case in the middle. On short duration flights, which are about ten days, we’d like to have at least one professional astronaut and up to three spaceflight participants. We could have more professionals—it doesn’t really matter to us, the price is effectively the same except for the training. We are fairly far along in negotiations with some countries to provide professional astronauts, but we have just started looking for spaceflight participants.
Are you thinking of astronauts from countries that don’t have their own space programs?
Two different categories: One would be countries that are fairly technologically advanced but don’t have human spaceflight programs. We can help with everything from astronaut selection to training. We have quite a bit of experience within our company. SGT [Ghaffarian’s former company] is a contractor to NASA, and today does all the training for NASA astronauts as well as all the flight control functions in Mission Control for the ISS. So you have a huge knowledge base accessible to our company. We would be able to select and then train and then fly astronauts for these countries. The second category are countries that already have astronauts, but don’t get to fly often enough. And a lot of those are in Europe.
One of the barriers to signing up spaceflight participants in the past was the amount of time required to train in Russia. Will your training be shorter?
Yes, and they won’t have to learn to speak Russian, either. I flew with two of those spaceflight participants, and both of them were in Russia for several months. We’re talking about being able to do our training in about 15 weeks, and it would all be in the U.S., with potentially a one-week trip to Russia to understand the Russian part of the space station.
Most of the space tourists a decade ago actively participated in the onboard experiments, and really tried to pitch in. Do you see that happening on your flights as well?
They can do whatever they want, is the bottom line. But I’ll tell you a story. When I was an astronaut and found out I was going to be flying with tourists, I wasn’t terribly excited about it. I figured this is a place for steely-eyed test pilots, and didn’t think very highly of the concept. I ended up flying about ten days with Anousheh Ansari, and she completely inverted that perspective. I saw how she and the guy I flew home with, Charles Simonyi, were both extremely professional, very courteous, and extremely willing to help. More importantly, she wrote a blog that reached millions of people on the ground and really kind of democratized the experience. It kind of opened my eyes to this notion that space is such a unique and magnificent experience that it ought to be shared with as many people as possible.
With all the experience at Axiom, do you see ways to build or operate a space station that might be better than the way NASA does it?
I hate to say it, but things that the government buys are always going to be more expensive just because they have a lot of bureaucracy and a lot of requirements. That’s the advantage of having a team that’s so experienced, that has sat through all the safety reviews. We can tell which [requirements] are valid, that we really need to consider, and which ones are kind of fluff. I think anybody who’s honest would tell you that you a lot of stuff happens that is just a function of the size of the organization.
Secondly, the ISS was built with pretty old technology, basically 386 processors and 1553 [military standard] data, which is kind of overkill for what we need, and drives costs out the roof. With the speed of processors today, you can do so much more with so much less in terms of weight, volume, and complexity. For instance, some of the gear on the ISS was so big that it had to go outside on the truss structure. And if it breaks it’s a real pain to go fix it. You have to have a spacewalk, or use very complex robotics, whereas now, because of miniaturization, we can put something like that inside, behind a cupboard door. So those are the things that will help us save money.
If everything goes according to your plan, how do you see Earth orbit in 10 or 15 years? Will there be several space stations?
I think probably just one company will benefit from the ISS, which is in a particular orbit. Other companies might want to go to different orbits. But once that one company proves the market, then I think you’ll see more investment, other companies trying to build independent space stations. For the first one, it would be advantageous to start attached to the ISS. Once the market gets proven, and I’m confident it will be, I do think you’ll see a proliferation of stations.
Would you like to go up again yourself?
I’ve had kind of a tongue-in-cheek conversation with Mike [Suffredini]. He said “You can be the first guy to go as soon as you write me a check for $55 million.” [Laughs] I don’t think it’s gonna happen any time soon.
It’s the stuff of thriller movie plots and space travel nightmares. A meteorite crashed into the International Space Station and pressure started dropping on the Russian side as oxygen began leaking out of the hole. A good screenwriter could spin this opening scene into 90 minutes of heart-thumping action, but NASA decided to let the crew continue to sleep and deal with it in the morning. Does NASA Need better technicians or better screenwriters?
“As flight controllers monitored their data, the decision was made to allow the Expedition 56 crew to sleep since they were in no danger. When the crew was awakened at its normal hour Thursday morning, flight controllers at Mission Control in Houston and at the Russian Mission Control Center outside Moscow began working procedures to try to determine the location of the leak.”
The current ISS crew consists of station Commander Drew Feustel, Flight Engineers Ricky Arnold and Serena Auñón-Chancellor of NASA, Alexander Gerst of the European Space Agency and Oleg Artemyev and Sergey Prokopyev of the Russian space agency Roscosmos. Upon awakening (to the music of “Fixing a Hole” by the Beatles?), NASA sent them all over to the Russian side to look for the leak. Really!
And? They found it! The hole was no more than two millimeters (.078 inches) in diameter and located not on the ISS itself but in the Soyuz spacecraft currently docked to it. That spaceship has been attached there since June, so it’s considered part of the station. The hole appeared to have been caused by a micrometeorite impact and was apparently found by ESA astronaut Gerst who reportedly … get ready for this … put his finger over the hole! The little Dutch boy with his finger in the dikewould be so proud.
It gets better. The space news website NASASpaceFlight.com was monitoring communications between ground support and the crew gave these updates on the initial repairs:
“Russian ground controllers say they are now into a deep dive evaluation of the hole. Sergey Prokopyev is still trying to hunt down a repair kit. They have taped the hole as a band aid. Plan is to clean up the area and add more permanent patches.”
Tape! Patches! And then …
“Now told to use a toothpick on the hole (likely to aid photography and scale). Then will apply sealant and cover it with a patch. General ISS pressure is holding stable now.”
This is no space thriller movie … this is a sitcom for aliens watching Earthlings in their feeble attempts at space travel.
We’re glad the crew is safe and the hole is repaired. This shows how risky space travel is and how dangerous even a tiny meteorite or piece of debris can be. A permanent fix will most likely have to be made from the outside on a spacewalk.
NASA has probably already put in orders to ship up some Bondo, sandpaper and paint.
Een team onderzoekers heeft bekendgemaakt dat zij de legendarische metalen bibliotheek en diverse andere schatten hebben gevonden in het Tayos grottensysteem in Ecuador.
Zij maakten ook bekend dat ze per ongeluk enkele verborgen tunnels hebben ontdekt die lang geleden door iemand of.... iets gemaakt zijn.
Het team was in staat om één van deze tunnels bijna een kilometer lang te volgen en kwam uiteindelijk uit in een grote kamer die de gouden bibliotheek en diverse andere waardevolle objecten bevatte. Hier volgt een lijst van wat de onderzoekers zeggen te hebben gevonden:
1) Een bibliotheek met duizenden metalen boeken. Het team was nog niet in staat om te vertellen welk metaal gebruikt was voor de boeken, maar het leek op zilver. 2) Iedere pagina bevatte symbolen en vreemde tekens. Individuele platen met tekens erop die eruit zagen alsof ze van goud waren. 3) Honderden verschillende beelden van insecten, dieren en mensen, verspreid door de grote kamer. 4) Veel metalen staven, zowel van (wat eruit zag als) goud en zilver. 5) Ook werd er kinderspeelgoed gevonden en juwelen van goud of zilver. 6) Een grote sarcofaag met daarin een menselijk skelet, versierd met juwelen en goud. 7) Het team vond tenminste nog drie deuren die naar meer kamers zouden kunnen leiden, maar die waren afgesloten.
Tot nu toe zijn de claims van dit team alleen nog gedaan via een radioprogramma en zijn er (nog) geen verdere mededelingen gedaan. Ze meldden verder dat ze voorbeelden hadden van tenminste één van de metalen boeken, een gouden plaat en verschillende kleine beeldjes die aangeboden zullen worden voor professioneel onderzoek. Hopelijk zullen er binnenkort meer berichten volgen.
Daarna is er nooit meer iets vernomen voor zover ons bekend.
Desalniettemin zijn de grotten en de verhalen over die bibliotheek wel echt.µ
Mensen die zich al eerder met deze bibliotheek hebben beziggehouden zijn onder andere Erich von Däniken en de Schotse onderzoeker Stanley Hall. Deze laatste kwam in de jaren zeventig van de vorige eeuw in contact met een Italiaanse priester, Crespi genaamd. Crespi had zich jarenlang onbaatzuchtig ingezet voor de belangen van de plaatselijke indianen en had als beloning ondermeer een soort gouden plaat gekregen, met daarop allerlei vreemde tekens. Ook had hij diverse andere voorwerpen in zijn bezit die erop wezen dat deze bibliotheek inderdaad bestond en gezien de vormen van de aangetroffen beelden, er inderdaad een verband mogelijk is met buitenaardse beschavingen. Stanley Hall heeft diverse expedities georganiseerd in de vorige eeuw, waaronder één waarbij ook de voormalige astronaut Neill Armstrong van de partij was. Alhoewel ze wel in het grottensysteem zijn geweest, zijn ze er niet in geslaagd om de bibliotheek te traceren. Hall is inmiddels overleden, maar zijn werk wordt voortgezet door zijn dochter. Deze kwam er ook achter dat de gouden plaat samen met vele andere waardevolle voorwerpen van de priester, na zijn dood in 1982 ineens waren verdwenen.
Toch is het verhaal over de tunnelcomplexen zeer interessant. Want dit soort tunnelstelsels bestaan namelijk echt. Erich von Däniken vertelde in 1973 in zijn boek ‘Het Goud der Goden’, dat hij ter plaatse foto’s had gemaakt van een enorm tunnelcomplex in Ecuador. Hij vertelde dat de Hongaarse Argentijn Juan Moricz, dit gangenstelsel vond en er via een notariële akte in 1969 eigenaar van werd. Dit klopt als een bus. Dit is middels akte en handtekeningen gedocumenteerd. Moricz ontmoette in 1972 Erich von Däniken en nam hem mee naar de plaats waar hij een rondleiding kreeg. Dit werd wonderlijk genoeg naderhand door Moricz zelf, tegenover de Duitse pers ontkend toen zij hier naar vroegen (hier zodadelijk meer over – want Erich von Däniken moet daar weldegelijk geweest zijn!). Erich von Däniken schreef in zijn boek vol lof over het enorm grote gangenstelsel.
von Däniken schreef hierover:
“Voor mij is het het ongelofelijkste, onwaarschijnlijkste verhaal van de eeuw. Het zou een science-fiction-story kunnen zijn, als ik het niet zelf gezien en gefotografeerd had. Ik heb het met eigen ogen gezien. Het is droom noch fantasie, het is realiteit. Onder het Zuidamerikaanse continent ligt een reusachtig door wie en wanneer dan ook aangelegd tunnelsysteem. Het ligt heel diep onder de aarde en is meerdere duizenden kilometers lang. In Peru en Ecuador werden honderden kilometers betreden en uitgemeten. En dat is nog maar het begin van iets waar de wereld niets van afweet.”
Op de volgende afbeelding zie je Von Däniken samen met Juan Moricz.
Wie meer wil lezen over dit bijzonder interessante verhaal raden wij om hier of hier verder te lezen.
Wie nu precies wel of niet dat grottenstelsel heeft ontdekt is wellicht minder belangrijk dat het feit dat ze er wel degelijk zijn.
Wat opvalt in vooral de eerste video met Stanley Hall en Father Crespi is dat er via dat gevonden beeld weer wordt gerefereerd aan de Soemeriërs en Babylonië.
Waarom werd dit enorme grottenstelsel gemaakt en waarom werd een dergelijke uitgebreide bibliotheek opgeslagen? Hoogstwaarschijnlijk omdat er rampen plaatsvonden of zouden plaatsvinden op aarde, waardoor complete beschavingen zouden worden weggevaagd.
Bij de mainstream wetenschap hoef je niet aan te kloppen voor antwoorden op dit soort vragen, want daar doet men alle mogelijke moeite om mensen in voorgeprogrammeerde gedachtepatronen vast te houden en daar horen dit soort werkelijkheden niet in thuis.
Misschien iets voor Evert Jan Poorterman om hier eens wat dieper in te duiken? Of iemand anders natuurlijk.
Large cone shaped metal looking UFO in the sky over Lake Erie
Large cone shaped metal looking UFO in the sky over Lake Erie
On July 11, 2018 a resident of Huron, Ohio captured a strange large cone shaped metal looking object with two triangular bright lights came out of it over Lake Erie before it all disappeared.
The witness states: I live on a golf course on Lake Erie approximately one quarter mile from the water.
I was out on my patio early evening and looking up the sky and noticed that there were no clouds in the sky, just overcast.
I saw this strange looking grayish vapor like cloud that almost looked like a short jet stream.
There were no planes in the air at that time and the altitude was somewhat low. It appeared to me that it was out over the lake.
I used my phone and took a picture of the cloud and then I took two more within 5 or 6 seconds after that, then the cloud and all objects were gone.
When I looked at the pictures which I have attached this is what I saw. I am the type of person who has to see it to believe it and I can assure you that this was not photoshopped or faked in any way I'm a very skeptical person anyhow this one has me. Your thoughts?
The photographer has submitted the images to Mufon case 94503.

Amazing UFOs caught on tape over Las Vegas, Nevada
Amazing UFOs caught on tape over Las Vegas, Nevada
This really shocking footage was filmed over Las Vegas on 24th July back in 2015 and it was just published online.
I shot this video from my backyard in the Summerlin area of Las Vegas, Nevada on the night of July 24, 2015. The location where these were filmed was above and beyond the Las Vegas Mountain Range which is at least 22 miles from my home where I was filming and is restricted airspace. I know they were a minimum of 22 miles away because you can see them go behind the mountain which is 22 miles away at 21:16:56 on the time stamp in the lower right-hand corner of the video. I know some of you don’t like it when I speed the video up but in this case, there was a lot of footage I wanted to show so I sped it up by five times. There are many times that these amazing objects perform stunts that are unheard of with our current technology and it’s much easier to see when the video is running at a faster pace. I also know that some of you don’t like the music but many others do so I add background music because the night vision camera does not record audio.
Turn your sound down or mute the video if you don’t like the music and it will be a win-win situation for all viewers. I recently decided to put MUFON to the test and turned a video in that is just as amazing as this one and they are the very same objects. It has been two weeks and I still haven’t heard a peep. I am very curious to find out whether or not they will even contact me. Finally, I have some great news… I have been wanting to buy a Nikon Coolpix P900 which gas an 83X optical zoom and 16.1 million megapixels for a long time now and I finally got it about a week ago. It will be great for taking close up photos of where I film and hopefully some of the objects I film. Right now I am just learning how to use it so I can take the best photos possible. I will put a slideshow video out soon showing you how sweet everything works.

Dyson spheres are hypothetical megastructures built by extraterrestrials for the purpose of harvesting all of a star’s energy. Here’s how the European Space Agency’s Gaia mission might help find one.
Artists’ concept of a Dyson sphere. Notice the little moon or planet on the left side, being ravaged for raw materials. This image – called Shield World Construction – is by Adam Burn. More about it here.
When contemplating extraterrestrial intelligence, one of the most tantalizing ideas is that a super-advanced alien civilization could build an enormous structure around its home star, to collect a significant portion of the star’s energy. This hypothetical megastructure is popularly known as a Dyson sphere. It’s a sci-fi-sounding concept, but some scientists have also seriously considered it. This week, a story emerged about how the European Space Agency’s Gaia mission – whose primary purpose is to create a 3D map of our Milky Way galaxy – might be instrumental in the search for Dyson spheres.
In the past, searches for Dyson spheres have focused on looking for signs of excess infrared or heat radiation in the vicinity of a star. That would be a telltale signature, but those attempts have come up empty, so far. The new peer-reviewed study – which was published in the Astrophysical Journal on July 18, 2018, and later described in Astrobites – proposes looking for Dyson spheres with little or no infrared excess. In other words, it describes a technique not attempted before.
Erik Zackrisson at Uppsala University in Sweden led the new study. It focuses on a type of Dyson sphere that would’ve been missed by prior searches focused on infrared radiation.
Suppose you were looking toward a Dyson sphere. What would you see? The visible light of the star would be reduced significantly since the Dyson sphere itself – by its nature – would mostly surround the star for purposes of energy collection. The star would continue shining; it would be shining on the inner portion of the Dyson sphere. Presumably, the star’s radiation would heat the sphere. According to earlier thoughts by scientists on the subject, a Dyson sphere should have a temperature between 50 and 1,000 Kelvin (-370 to 1300 degrees Fahrenheit; -220 to 730 degrees Celsius). At that temperature, radiation from the sphere would peak in infrared wavelengths.
That was the earlier idea, until Zackrisson’s study.
An all-sky view of the Milky Way and neighboring galaxies from the Gaia mission. This view includes measurements of nearly 1.7 billion stars.
Image via Gaia Data Processing and Analysis Consortium (DPAC)/A. Moitinho/A. F. Silva/M. Barros/C. Barata – University of Lisbon, Portugal/H. Savietto – Fork Research, Portugal.
His study suggests the possibility that the sphere might be composed of a different kind of material than what had been previously supposed. Suppose this material had the ability to dim the star’s light equally at all wavelengths? That would make it a so-called gray absorber and would significantly affect methods used to search for Dyson spheres. If you measured the star’s distance spectrophotometrically – by comparing the star’s observed flux and spectrum to standard stellar emission models – then the measurements would suggest that the star is farther away than it actually is.
But then if you measured the star’s distance using the parallax method, you’d get a different number. The parallax method compares the apparent movement of a nearby star against the stellar background, as Earth moves from one side of its orbit to another across a period of, say, six months. The size of a Dyson sphere could be determined by comparing the difference in distances between these two methods. The greater the difference, the greater the amount of the star’s surface that is being obscured by the sphere.
Now, thanks to new data from the Gaia mission, astronomers can do these kinds of comparisons, which could – in theory – detect a Dyson sphere. From the new study:
A star enshrouded in a Dyson sphere with a high covering fraction may manifest itself as an optically subluminous object with a spectrophotometric distance estimate significantly in excess of its parallax distance. Using this criterion, the Gaia mission will in coming years allow for Dyson sphere searches that are complementary to searches based on waste-heat signatures at infrared wavelengths. A limited search of this type is also possible at the current time, by combining Gaia parallax distances with spectrophotometric distances from ground-based surveys. Here, we discuss the merits and shortcomings of this technique and carry out a limited search for Dyson sphere candidates in the sample of stars common to Gaia Data Release 1 and Radial Velocity Experiment (RAVE) Data Release 5. We find that a small fraction of stars indeed display distance discrepancies of the type expected for nearly complete Dyson spheres.
In other words, using this new method, astronomers have found candidate Dyson sphere stars.
Graph showing distribution of covering fractions for all stars in the Gaia-RAVE database overlap (left) and just those stars with less than 10 percent error in their Gaia parallax distance and less than 20 percent error in their RAVE spectrophotometric distance (right). If the parallax distance is smaller than the spectrophotometric distance, that is interpreted this as a negative covering fraction, and could be an indication of a Dyson sphere surrounding that star.
As it happens, these data are very useful when searching for Dyson spheres.
Using the parallax distances from the first data release of Gaia, Zackrisson and his colleagues compared that data to previously measured spectrophotometric distances from the Radial Velocity Experiment (RAVE), which takes spectra of stars in the Milky Way. This resulted in an estimate of what percentage of each star could be blocked by Dyson sphere material.

Of course, figuring out if any of these could actually be Dyson sphere candidates required further analysis. Zackrisson and his team decided to focus on main-sequence stars (like the sun), spectral types F, G and K, and narrowed those down to those which displayed a potential blocking fraction greater than 0.7. Larger giant stars were removed from the data set since their spectrophotometric distances tend to be overestimated compared to main-sequence stars.
This alone left only six possible candidates. Those in turn were then narrowed down to only two, after eliminating four candidates due to problems with the data itself. One of those, the star TYC 6111-1162-1, was then considered to be the best remaining candidate.

So … has the first Dyson Sphere been found? The simple answer is we don’t know yet. The star, a garden-variety late-F dwarf, seems to exhibit the sought-after characteristics, but more data is needed. No other glitch-related weirdness was found in the data, but the star was also found to be a binary system consisting of two stars (the other being a small white dwarf) which might explain the results – but none of that is certain yet. Additional study of the star will be required, including using future Gaia data releases, to determine what is really happening here. From the new study:
To shed light on the properties of objects in this outlier population, we present follow-up high-resolution spectroscopy for one of these stars, the late F-type dwarf TYC 6111-1162-1. The spectrophotometric distance of this object is about twice that derived from its Gaia parallax, and there is no detectable infrared excess. While our analysis largely confirms the stellar parameters and the spectrophotometric distance inferred by RAVE, a plausible explanation for the discrepant distance estimates of this object is that the astrometric solution has been compromised by an unseen binary companion, possibly a rather massive white dwarf. This scenario can be further tested through upcoming Gaia data releases.

Bottom line: Discovering an actual Dyson sphere, or something similar, would be incredible. This new study proposes a new method of searching which shows some promise. It’s even possible that a Dyson Sphere-type object has already been found in the preliminary data, but that will require more follow-up to either confirm or disprove. Regardless, this new search method will prove valuable in future searches as well.
What Would It Take to Land on Mercury? It's Time to Find Out, Scientists Say
What Would It Take to Land on Mercury? It's Time to Find Out, Scientists Say
By Meghan Bartels, Space.com Senior Writer
Mercury has been devoid of spacecraft companions since NASA's Messenger mission ended in 2015, and while the next mission bound for the innermost planet launches later this year, it won't arrive until 2025.
Scientists are passing the time digging through Messenger's data and planning what the new mission will bring, of course. But, they've also begun to think about what's next for the littlest planet in the solar system — and to revive dreams of finally putting a robot on its surface.
"That's going to really be unprecedented, with two spacecraft observing Mercury at once," Nancy Chabot, a planetary scientist at the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory, told Space.com. Chabot was referring to the BepiColombo mission, which consists of a pair of orbiters that will be launched in October. "We all know that we're going to get a lot of amazing data and make a lot of discoveries about the planet, but we also know that mission has been in development for decades." [10 Strange Facts About Mercury (A Photo Tour)]
Chabot is one of the lead authors of a newly published white paper calling for a detailed study to examine the feasibility of putting a lander on Mercury. Although such a study was conducted in 2010, no mission ever came of it because the planet is such a challenging target — but new technology may make a Mercury lander more feasible. And a lander would fit with the typical rhythm of planetary exploration: fly by, orbit, land, rove.
But NASA decides its missions in accordance with reports called decadal surveys, which are produced every 10 years by the National Academies of Sciences. Committees will soon begin working on the next one for planetary endeavors, which will cover 2013 to 2022. And when they do, Mercury scientists want them to consider their favorite planet.
"We need to get working on this now for us to see a Mercury lander in the 2030s," Paul Byrne, a planetary geologist at North Carolina State University and one of the lead authors of the white paper, told Space.com. "Our job will be complete if we can convince people to do one of these studies."
Why send a lander?
There are plenty of questions haunting Mercury scientists, especially in the wake of the Messenger orbiter, which gathered data from 2011 to 2015. And that situation will only improve once BepiColombo reaches the planet in 2025 and begins sending back more orbital data.
Mercury itself is a weird, wonderful world. "Mercury is sort of a planet of extremes — you've got the hot and cold temperatures, you've got the fact that it spins on its axis three times for every two times it goes around the sun," Steven Hauck, a planetary scientist at Case Western Reserve University, one of the lead authors on the white paper and a key figure in the mission study completed in 2010, told Space.com. "There are places on the planet where you can see double sunsets and double sunrises." And then there's the bit where the planet is almost entirely made up of core, with thin shells of mantle and crust surrounding a giant metallic ball.
All that weirdness means that while individual scientists have their own preferences for what a mission could look like, they say that right now, the details are much less important than looking at the feasibility of any mission at all. That's why the white paper doesn't specify any particular landing site or instrument suite — or even what the lander's primary goal would be. [Mercury Photos from NASA's Messenger Probe - Part 2 (April 2011 through 2012)]
"With any of those [mission goals], there's still amazing, compelling science that you could do on the surface of Mercury," Chabot said. "I think I'd be willing to go with a lot of different options, just because there are so many different science questions that a lander could answer."
What makes Mercury so difficult
But missions aren't solely about scientific merit: NASA and its fellow space agencies need to be pragmatic about their resources as well, and that puts Mercury at a disadvantage. "For decades, people have argued that Mercury is just as — if not more — scientifically compelling than Mars, but Mars is much easier to get to," Byrne said. Mars is also easier for a spacecraft to land on and survive, whereas every step of a Mercury lander would be challenging.
First, getting there: "You essentially need three rockets to get to Mercury," Hauck said: one to get off Earth, one to get from Earth to Mercury and one to carefully land on the planet (because it lacks an atmosphere that can slow down a spacecraft). Oh, and the entire process takes six or seven years because of the complex trajectory a spaceship would need to follow in order to reach the tiny, innermost planet.
And it doesn't get easier after landing, given a host of threats on the surface — most notably the incredible temperature extremes on the planet. "It's exceptionally hot on the day side and the exact opposite on the night side," Hauck said.
But since the last mission study was conducted in 2010, a host of new technologies have become available, or close enough for researchers to reasonably consider using them for a mission in the 2030s. That includes high-power rockets like SpaceX's Falcon Heavy, which could help send a mission on its way. And technology developed to enable the Parker Solar Probe to fly just 4 million miles (6 million kilometers) above what we consider to be the surface of the sun may be adaptable enough to allow a lander to survive out of the shade on Mercury, Byrne said.
The team's hope is that a new, detailed mission study could determine whether these factors combined, plus administrative changes — such as, no longer needing to include the cost of the launch itself in a mission plan — might make a Mercury lander affordable under NASA's New Frontiers program, which has created the Juno, New Horizons and OSIRIS-REx missions. That program caps mission costs at $850 million. [Most Enduring Mysteries of Mercury]
The group behind the white paper knows that a detailed-consideration study may not return a favorable result. "A Mercury lander is challenging, we all know this, we're not being naive," Chabot said. But the group's scientists worry that without a study, NASA will simply assume a lander isn't feasible — and in the process, shortchange the scientific merit of the smallest planet.
"We don't know why Mercury is the way it is, only that it's kind of important we understand that," Byrne said. And landing on the tiny planet may be the key to solving some of its many mysteries — if only someone can figure out how to do it.
Archaeologists Find Massive Underground World Belonging To A Long Lost Civilization In Peru
Archaeologists Find Massive Underground World Belonging To A Long Lost Civilization In Peru
Researchers in Peru have discovered a complex underground world belonging to the ancient Chavín culture that has been identified as burial chambers that date back thousands of years.
The culture developed in the northern Andean highlands of Peru from 1,300 and 550 BC. The Chavín extended its influence to other civilizations along the coast. The Ancient Chavin civilization developed advanced knowledge not only in metallurgy, but in soldering, and temperature control. The ancient Chavin used early techniques to develop refined gold work.
Not, researchers have discovered galleries, ceramics and even a place where this civilization carried out burials, located beneath the surface. They say it’s the most important archaeological discovery made in the last 50 years.
Since June of 2018, a team of archaeologists has unearthed three new galleries in an area adjacent to the circular plaza of Chavín. In the place, they have found remarkable pieces of ceramics, utensils and intact human burials.
According to American anthropologist and archaeologist John Rick, in charge of the Archaeological and Conservation Research Program of Chavín, the three discovered galleries come from the late period of this civilization that developed between 1,300 and 550 BC.
“What these galleries show is that Chavín has a much larger underground world than we think,” said Rick.
Inside one of these underground galleries, archeologists discovered artifacts that belonged to the later Huaraz culture.
These successive occupations, found at different levels in the archaeological complex demonstrate the cultural and religious importance that Chavin had in the central highlands for centuries.
The project’s specialists used small robots with built-in micro-cameras to carry out the explorations. These machines – designed on site by engineers from Stanford University – entered very small areas and discovered cavities in the Chavin labyrinths, where pottery was preserved.
Chavin de Huantar was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1985. So far 35 interconnected underground passageways have been found at the site, Peru’s culture ministry said.
Here's a recipe for freaking out Twitter: Borrow a video of a realistic humanoid robot strolling up a driveway. Post it on Twitter. Wait for world famous mentalist Derren Brown to retweet it. Gather nearly 5 million video views. Enjoy the comment fallout as people question whether it's real.
Brown's retweet of a short robot video on Saturday helped spread the footage across Twitter, whose users described it as "scary," "creepy," "terrifying" and "my worst nightmare." It helped that Brown wrote, "WE ARE ALL GOING TO DIE" in his tweet caption.
The artist behind the video appears to be 3D artist Maxim Sullivan, who originally posted the video to Twitter on Aug. 12 with the message, "Glitchy test of Adam from the @oatsstudios Unity film, going for a walk."
Sullivan answered some questions in his own Twitter thread, saying the creation is indeed CGI. While Sullivan's original tweeted video has almost 13,000 views, the version tweeted out of context by another Twitter user (and retweeted by Brown) has almost 5 million.
While Adam isn't real, there are plenty of actual robots out there that can give you the willies. Boston Dynamics' running robot Atlas is a top candidate that should slot nicely into your robo-fear nightmares.
There are fears that tend to come up when people talk about futuristic artificial intelligence — say, one that could teach itself to learn and become more advanced than anything we humans might be able to comprehend. In the wrong hands, perhaps even on its own, such an advanced algorithm might dominate the world’s governments and militaries, impart Orwellian levels of surveillance, manipulation, and social control over societies, and perhaps even control entire battlefields of autonomous lethal weapons such as military drones.
But some artificial intelligence experts don’t think those fears are well-founded. In fact, highly-advanced artificial intelligence could be better at managing the world than humans have been. These fears themselves are the real danger, because they may hold us back from making that potential a reality.
“Maybe not achieving AI is the danger for humanity.”
As a species, Mikolov explained, humans are pretty terrible at making choices that are good for us in the long term. People have carved away rainforests and other ecosystems to harvest raw materials, unaware of (or uninterested in) how they were contributing to the slow, maybe-irreversible degradation of the planet overall.
But a sophisticated artificial intelligence system might be able to protect humanity from its own shortsightedness.
“We as humans are very bad at making predictions of what will happen in some distant timeline, maybe 20 to 30 years from now,” Mikolov added. “Maybe making AI that is much smarter than our own, in some sort of symbiotic relationship, can help us avoid some future disasters.”
Granted, Mikolov may be in the minority in thinking a superior AI entity would be benevolent. Throughout the conference, many other speakers expressed these common fears, mostly about AI used for dangerous purposes or misused by malicious human actors. And we shouldn’t laugh off or downplay those concerns.
We don’t know for sure whether it will ever be possible to create artificial general intelligence, often considered the holy grail of sophisticated AI that’s capable of doing pretty much any cognitive task humans can, maybe even doing it better.
The future of advanced artificial intelligence is promising, but it comes with a lot of ethical questions. We probably don’t know all the questions we’ll have to answer yet.
But most of the panelists at the HLAI conference agreed that we still need to decide on the rules before we need them. The time to create international agreements, ethics boards, and regulatory bodies across governments, private companies, and academia? It’s now. Putting these institutions and protocols in place would reduce the odds that a hostile government, unwitting researcher, or even a cackling mad scientistwould unleash a malicious AIsystem or otherwise weaponize advanced algorithms. And if something nasty did get out there, then these systems would ensure we’d have ways to handle it.
With these rules and safeguards in place, we will be much more likely to usher in a future in advanced AI systems live harmoniously with us, or perhaps even save us from ourselves.
Pour les adeptes du paranormal, les crop circles qui apparaissent dans les champs de blé seraient l'œuvre d'aliens. Pour les sceptiques, ils seraient d'origine humaine. Pour trancher le débat, des youtubeurs ont réalisé une petite expérience instructive.
Ce crop circle est apparu dans un champ de blé de Sarraltroff en Moselle. Il est l'oeuvre de youtubeurs et non d'extraterrestres.
Cette fois, ils ont frappé à Sarraltroff (Moselle). Ils ? Les extra-terrestres bien sûr ! C'était le 9 juin et comme à leur habitude, ils ont laissé une trace de leur passage dans un champ de blé : un immense crop circle ou cercle de culture en français ou encore agroglyphe. Le dessin géant est formé d'épis couchés par “une technologie alienne”. Il est composé de plusieurs cercles disposés de manière énigmatique voire ésotérique et dont la "géométrie parfaite” ne peut s'apprécier que vue du ciel. Selon les exégètes de la chose, cette géométrie est d'ailleurs trop parfaite pour être l'oeuvre de simples êtres humains. La preuve, donc, qu'il s'agit bien d'une production extra-terrestre... Le champ est alors devenu un véritable lieu de pèlerinage New Age, chargé “d'énergie”, “de vibrations” et autres fluides cosmiques obscures.
Malheureusement - pour les exégètes - ce crop circle a bel et bien été réalisé par des humains ordinaires… ou presque. Effectivement, le 24 août, de joyeux youtubeurs ont révélé qu'ils étaient les auteurs de l'agroglyphe de Sarraltroff. Ces mordus de science, sont surtout adeptes de la zététique, l'étude rationnelle de phénomènes prétendument extraordinaires (paranormal, pseudo-sciences, pseudo-médecines etc…). Ils étaient aidés par deux ufologues sceptiques, rompus à l'analyse des phénomènes supposés extra-terrestres. Armés de simples mètres rubans pour les mesures et de quelques bières, les membres du commando ont agi en pleine nuit à la lueur de leurs torches frontales. Une planche sous le pied tenue à chaque extrémité par une ficelle, ils ont écrasé minutieusement les blés dans le champ d'un agriculteur complice (voir les explications de la méthode dans la vidéo). L'opération a duré à peine une heure. Et à la différence d'insaisissables extra-terrestres, les youtubeurs ont tout filmé. Les séquences sont diffusées et largement commentées sur Astronogeek, la chaîne Youtube d'Arnaud Thiry, l'initiateur du projet (trois épisodes sont prévus).
“L'objectif n'était pas de se moquer de ceux qui croient aux extra-terrestres, nous assure Arnaud Thiry. Nous voulions tester la méthode qui permet aux experts d'affirmer si un crop circle est une oeuvre extra-terrestre ou humaine.” Une véritable expérience en aveugle. En d'autres termes, est-ce que ces experts, ne connaissant pas l'origine du crop circle, sont capables déterminer, comme ils le prétendent, s'il a été produit par des humains. La réponse est clairement non. “Tous ceux qui sont venus sur place ont affirmé qu'il s'agissait bien d'une réalisation extra-terrestre", confirme Arnaud Thiry.
« Ce crop est tellement élaboré. C’est vivant, comme dans les cathédrales ou devant un menhir. Un humain n’aurait pas pu le faire. »
Umberto Molinaro, le plus populaire d'entre-eux, est lui aussi tombé dans le panneau. Ce conférencier français, auteur de quatre livres sur le sujet, s'est rendu sur place. Entouré de nombre de ses fidèles qui le suivent notamment sur Facebook ou lors d'une émission diffusée sur la chaîne Youtube CTVM TV, il a pu observer le nouveau “message” laissé par ceux qu'il appelle tantôt “les Etres de Lumière” tantôt “les Galactiques”. Ainsi, interrogé par une journaliste du Républicain Lorrain, il ressort l'argument de la complexité du motif : " Ce crop est tellement élaboré. Chaque cercle est lié aux autres par des rapports particuliers. C'est vivant, comme dans les cathédrales ou devant un menhir. Un humain n'aurait pas pu le faire. " L'occasion d'improviser avec ses amis une séance collective de captation d'énergies et de vibrations assurément cosmo-telluriques.
Alors forcément, quand deux mois plus tard il apprend que les cercles de culture ont été réalisés non pas par des Galactiques, mais par des humains, il change de version. Il affirme notamment qu'il n'a jamais dit qu'il s'agissait d'un “vrai crop circle” (d'origine extra-terrestre). Contacté par téléphone il nous confirme : “Je n'ai jamais authentifié ce crop circle. Pour le faire il faut prélever de la terre et analyser sa résistivité.” (sic). Il poursuit : “J'ai tout de suite vu que c'était un faux.” Pourtant, sur Facebook et sur Youtube, l'expert français n'a pas cessé de gloser sur l'authenticité de l'oeuvre, assénant, photos à l'appui, tous les indices qui permettent de distinguer la main de l'Etre de Lumière du pied de l'être humain.
Outre la complexité du motif, les partisans de l'hypothèse extraterrestre évoquent par exemple la présence de blés coudés. Il s'agit en fait de tiges qui se redressent partiellement vers le ciel. Le phénomène serait l'oeuvre “d'une résonance vibratoire” caractéristique de la technologie alien. Pourtant, comme l'ont montré les youtubeurs, la technologie terrestre consistant à aplatir le blé avec une simple planche de bois, produit les mêmes effets. Le blé coudé s'explique par l'héliotropisme, littéralement une attirance pour le soleil, qui pousse une plante vivante, dépendante de la photosynthèse, à s'orienter naturellement vers la lumière.
Mieux encore, Umberto Molinaro commente la présence de mouches mortes collées sur les épis de blé. Là encore, il s'agit pour lui des effets secondaires de la méthode extra-terrestre. Et pour l'affirmer avec plus de force, il fait appel à une autorité dans le domaine : Valentin, un jeune homme décédé depuis plusieurs années et en contact direct avec les Galactiques... L'explication de Valentin relayée par Umberto Molinaro est alors limpide : “Les insectes sont immobilisés sous les effets vibratoires. Ca les scotche sur place. Ils n'ont plus la force de réagir.”
Au téléphone, le malaise est perceptible. Umberto Molinaro nous confie qu'il a été piégé. Il accuse les youtubeurs d'avoir étudié sa technique pour l'induire en erreur. Mais comme le montre la vidéo, la bande de sceptiques n'a fait qu'écraser le blé en suivant la méthode de la planche de bois abondamment décrite sur Internet. Mieux, le rapport VECA, rédigé par Gilles Munsch du Groupe d'études et d'informations sur les phénomènes aérospatiaux non identifiés (GEIPAN) au Centre national d'études spatiales (CNES), révèle tous les éléments qui permettent de montrer qu'un crop circle a été réalisé par l'homme. Un rapport consultable par tous car en accès libre sur Internet. Gilles Munsch est d'ailleurs venu lui-même, à titre personnel, sur le champ de Moselle : “En quelques minutes il a conclu que c'était l'oeuvre d'humains. Il m'a même décrit comment ils avaient procédé, dans quel ordre ils avaient dessiné les cercles. J'ai du rapidement lui avouer que c'était nous”, raconte Arnaud Thiry.
Coincé par la simplicité de la démonstration, Umberto Molinaro s'emporte et lâche un argument inattendu : “Quand j'emmène des gens sur un crop circle, on est à un autre niveau. On n'est pas là à chercher le vrai et le faux parce qu'on s'en fiche. Ce qu'on retrouve dans un vrai ou un faux crop circle n'est pas lié au crop circle lui-même. On est lié déjà à quelque chose de plus grand que nous.”
Cette histoire de vrai ou faux extraterrestres pourrait faire sourire, faisant passer les adeptes des crop circlespour de doux rêveurs. Mais une vidéo filmée en caméra cachée par Arnaud Thiry sur le site de Moselle, montre un toute autre visage de l'univers parallèle dans lequel ils évoluent : celui de “vibrations” ou encore “d'énergies” bienfaitrices laissées par les Galactiques et qui seraient dotées d'un pouvoir guérisseur.
Unstable Monster Galaxy Hosts Runaway Star Formation
Unstable Monster Galaxy Hosts Runaway Star Formation
By Sarah Lewin, Space.com Associate Editor
Some 12.4 billion light-years from Earth, a monster galaxy can be seen forming stars 1,000 times faster than the Milky Way does. It's less of a mess than researchers expected — but its frenetic pace can't last.
Researchers using the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) observatory in Chile have gotten the closest look ever at the galaxy, called COSMOS-AzTEC-1. So-called extreme starburst galaxies may be the predecessors of modern galaxies like the Milky Way, and so understanding them lends insight into how today's galaxies formed and evolved.
"A real surprise is that this galaxy seen almost 13 billion years ago has a massive, ordered gas disk that is in regular rotation instead of what we had expected, which would have been some kind of a disordered train wreck that most theoretical studies had predicted," Min Yun, an astronomer at University of Massachusetts, Amherst, and co-author on the new work, said in a statement.
The ancient galaxy's structure held other surprises, as well. With ALMA, they saw that instead of just one dense cloud of material in the center, there were two extra blobs of star-generating gas.
"We found that there are two distinct large clouds several thousand light-years away from the center," Ken-ichi Tadaki, the study's lead author and a researcher at the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science and Japan's National Astronomical Observatory, said in the statement. "In most distant starburst galaxies, stars are actively formed in the center. So it is surprising to find off-center clouds."
And its off-the-charts star formation comes from an inherent instability, the researchers said. In most galaxies, clouds of gas collapse and form stars, which eventually explode into supernovas, pushing gas outward again and slowing the pace of star birth. But in this galaxy, gravity is winning: More and more gas is collapsing into stars, without being pushed outward strongly enough to slow down.
Researchers have been wondering for a long time how early galaxies could form stars so quickly, the researchers said.
"How these galaxies have been able to amass such a large quantity of gas in the first place and then essentially turn the entire gas reserve into stars in the blink of an eye, cosmologically speaking, was a completely unknown question about which we could only speculate," Yun said. "We have the first answers now."
If the early universe were populated with galaxies with structures like this one, they could have accumulated huge amounts of gas before suddenly blasting out stars in a runaway effect — although the researchers still don't know how the galaxy was able to build up gas in so stable a fashion before the reaction began.
And the ancient galaxy's life is likely fleeting: The researchers said it will be completely consumed in 100 million years, 10 times faster than other star-forming galaxies.
The researchers speculate that colliding galaxies could have merged to create the behemoth but would need more research — and to look at more ancient galaxies in this much detail — to evaluate how likely that origin is, and to learn more about our mammoth galactic predecessors.
For reasons unknown, the travel fare aggregate Orbitz has decided to create a series of extraterrestrial tourism posters they have made available free online. They are really cool and commemorate potential incidents from around the world of alien visitations.

We are not alone.
Reports of UFO sightings, and encounters of the first, second, and third kind date back to Ancient Egypt, and continue throughout the course of history.
Ruimtestation ISS kampte vandaag met een klein gaatje in de wand. Daardoor is de druk aan boord donderdag een beetje weggevallen. Het gaatje van 2 millimeter is gedicht met afplaktape. De situatie aan boord is onder controle.
Wellicht tengevolge van de inslag van een micrometeoriet is er in de nacht van gisteren op vandaag een noodsituatie in het Internationaal Ruimtestation ISS geweest, zo heeft het hoofd van het Russische ruimtevaartbureau Roscosmos bekendgemaakt. Dmitri Rogozin beklemtoont dat het probleem is opgelost en dat de bemanning niet in gevaar verkeert.
In de loop van de nacht ontstond er zo drukverlies en een zuurstoflek in het ISS te wijten aan een gaatje van twee milimeter. De Amerikaanse bemanningsleden en de Duitser Alexander Gerst voegden zich bij hun Russische collega’s in het Russische segment van het complex. Daarop werd segment per segment afgesloten om te onderzoeken waar en wat er gebeurd is. “Uiteindelijk lokaliseerden wij het probleem, aldus Rogozin.
Het gaatje zat in een Russisch gedeelte van het ruimtestation, de zogeheten Rassvet-module. Dat is de plek waar capsules die vanaf de aarde komen, worden aangekoppeld. Nu zit er het vaartuig waarmee een Duitser, een Amerikaanse en een Rus in juni bij het ISS aankwamen. Het is nog niet bekend of het lek gevolgen heeft voor hun geplande terugkeer eind dit jaar.
Wellicht is er een micro-meteoriet ingeslagen, waardoor een gaatje ontstond. Het is ondertussen gerepareerd. Een ruimtewandeling voor verdere reparaties is niet nodig, aldus Rogozin.
Popular UFO researcher Graham McHardy who ran the YouTube channel 'Streetcap1' has died. The death news was revealed by Scott C Waring, another alien researcher. Waring revealed that Streetcap1 died of a sudden heart attack in June 2018, and he added that the UFO researcher was in a decent health at that moment.
"I am saddened to say that the great UFO researcher Streetcap1 (Graham McHardy) passed away in June. I just found out today. I contacted his family and they said he died of a sudden heart attack, and that no one was expecting it. He was in decent health at that moment," wrote Scott C Waring on his website UFO Sightings Daily.
In his UFO research career, Streetcap1 had pointed out several anomalies in lunar photos taken by various NASA missions. Some of the anomalies pointed out by Streetcap1 were so convincing, and it made many of his viewers believe that space agencies like NASA are covering up something sinister.
The last time he uploaded a video on his YouTube channel was on June 7, 2018. As Streetcap1 did not upload any videos since then, many of his followers asked him whether anything has gone wrong.
Tyler Glockner, another popular UFO researcher also uploaded a video about Streetcap1 on his YouTube channel 'Secureteam10'. After Glockner published the video about Streetcap1's death, viewers also expressed their suspicions regarding the untimely demise.
"Tyler you must continue your mission in honor of StreetCap you must carry this legacy and represent all of us in the seeking of Truth! We are not alone!," commented LP Ripper 24 TV, a YouTube user.
"I had a feeling..He talked about it in the last few videos..It didn't seem right then..It doesn't seem right now..He was one of my favorite, if not my favorite researcher..He will be sorely missed..RIP STREETCAP1..If you haven't seen his work..please do," commented Ancient Knowledge, another YouTuber.
Psychic spies: Inside the government's secret ESP program
Psychic spies: Inside the government's secret ESP program
Many people claim (and many others question) the existence of ESP -- Extra Sensory Perception. Erin Moriarty of "48 Hours" has gone searching for answers (Originally broadcast March 18, 2018):
In the 1970s, a handsome ex-Israeli army paratrooper popularized extrasensory perception, or ESP. Uri Geller claimed he could bend spoons with his mind, see inside sealed containers, and even read other people's minds.
It was great television. But off-stage, Geller had also caught the eye of the intelligence community.
"This is where it got very interesting, because scientists would consider, 'Wait a minute, maybe we can read the minds of other government officials; maybe we can see inside a nuclear facility in Russia,'" said national security reporter Annie Jacobsen.
It sounds incredible, but it's true. Relying on now-declassified documents, Jacobsen has written about the U.S. government's decades-long to attempts to use Uri Geller, and others like him, for psychic espionage.
"It's sort of like a highly-classified black program inside of a black program," Jacobsen said. "One, because you don't want the Russians or the Chinese to know what we are doing; and two, because a lot of scientists didn't want their colleagues to know what they were doing, because of the embarrassment factor."
And there had long been reports, said Jacobsen, that the Kremlin was also experimenting with ways to weaponize people with ESP.
"There's a declassified report that talks about the Pentagon's real fear -- citing Uri Geller by name -- that if he was able to bend metal with his mind, he might be able to use his mind to interfere with the delicate electronic systems on a nuclear-tipped ICBM," Jacobsen said.
But Uri Geller's skills turned out to be unreliable, as on his now-infamous appearance on "The Tonight Show" in 1973.
Johnny Carson: "Uri was telling me, you don't feel, what, strong tonight? Is that…" Geller: "I don't feel strong. I can't…" Carson: "Well, I'm not trying to pressure you. I'm really not."
Still, that didn't stop the government experiments. In the 1980s, the Defense Intelligence Agency began "Project Star Gate," which was, according to Dean Radin, a scientist who worked on the program, top secret. "It's actually beyond top secret."
The program employed about a dozen psychics and mediums. Its aim: espionage.
Moriarty asked, "To see whether someone in the United States could spy on other countries from here, just using their minds?"
"Did it work?"
"It did work, yeah," Radin replied.
Angela Ford was with Project Star Gate for nine years. She calls herself a medium; the Defense Department preferred "remote viewer." "I was good at finding people," she said. "I was good at locating things."
Moriarty asked, "In a sense, were you hired as a psychic spy?"
"I guess, yes!" she laughed.
Her assignment? To look for missing hostages and fugitives without ever leaving a building at Fort Meade in Maryland.
She recalled one assignment, in 1989, when she says she was able to psychically track down a former customs agent who had allegedly gone rogue.
"I was called into session," Ford said. "My boss asked me, 'Where is Charles Jordan?' I said, 'The man is in Lowell, Wyoming.' And I spelled it: L-O-W-E-L-L."
Ford was off by one letter -- it was Lovell, Wyoming.
"Well, when my boss went to Customs and said, 'We're still getting the Wyoming feeling,' Customs said, 'As we are speaking, we are apprehending Charles Jordan, 100 miles west of Lovell, Wyoming.'"
"So you were right?"
Ford said, "We were right."
There is no obvious explanation for how Ford obtained the intel that turned out to be accurate. But could it have been ESP?
Not according to physicists like Cal Tech's Sean Carroll. When asked if there is such a thing as extrasensory perception, Carroll replied, " No. I think we know enough about the brain to say, no, it really doesn't work that way. We'd be able to test that, be able to put a little receiver next to your head and pick up those signals if they were actually coming."
Angel's Ford's response: "They can't detect it yet."
Moriarty asked her, "But you believe ESP exists?"
"Yes, it does. Yeah, of course."
In 1995, Project Star Gate was shut down. But government interest in the paranormal has not been completely abandoned. Writer Annie Jacobsen says the military is working to see if certain soldiers have "enhanced perception," or "precognition" -- sensing what will happen before it does.
Dean Radin, now at the Institute of Noetic Sciences (which studies ESP), put Moriarty through a test: "This experiment is going to see if your body responds before you see an emotional picture as compared to before a calm picture."
If the pupils of Moriarty's eyes dilate before the disturbing pictures appear on the screen, that's precognition.
Does she have any special powers? Yes! She reacts five seconds before seeing an emotional picture.
"Whoa -- I sure didn't see that coming … which is why I have my doubts," Moriarty said.
But those who have seen people like Uri Geller and Angela Ford in action say you can't dismiss the idea that some people may have ESP.
Radin said, "What we're talking about is something like a talent, similar to musical talent or sports talent. So, there will be some people who are at the Olympic level; most of us aren't there."
Journalist Annie Jacobsen said, "There's instances of unusual situations, but there is no proof. It does not pass scientific muster."

Overheid zette jarenlang in het geheim helderziende spionnen in, en met succes. Een uniek inkijkje
In de jaren zeventig trok de Israëlische ex-soldaat Uri Geller de aandacht van de inlichtingengemeenschap door te beweren dat hij lepels kon buigen met zijn gedachten en gedachten van anderen kon lezen.
‘Als we de gedachten van andere overheidsfunctionarissen kunnen lezen, kunnen we misschien een kijkje nemen in een nucleaire installatie in Rusland’, zo dachten de inlichtingendiensten.
De Amerikaanse onderzoeksjournaliste Annie Jacobsen heeft zich verdiept in het decennialange onderzoek van de Amerikaanse overheid naar mensen zoals Uri Geller.
“Het is een soort topgeheime black operation binnen een black operation,” zei Jacobsen tegen CBS News. “Ze wilden niet dat de Russen of Chinezen erachter zouden komen.”
“Ze wilden ook niet dat hun collega’s erachter zouden komen, uit schaamte,” klonk het.
De journaliste merkte op dat het Kremlin ook al geruime tijd experimenteerde met buitenzintuiglijke waarneming.
“In een vrijgegeven document staat letterlijk dat het Pentagon bang is dat Uri Geller mogelijk met zijn gedachten de elektronische systemen van een kernraket kon verstoren,” zei Jacobsen.
Beyond top secret
In de jaren tachtig startte de Amerikaanse militaire inlichtingendienst DIA het Stargate Project.
Volgens Dean Radin, een wetenschapper die eraan meewerkte, was het project ‘beyond top secret’.
De Amerikaanse overheid huurde helderzienden en mediums in om te spioneren. En dat werkte, aldus Radin.
Angela Ford werkte negen jaar voor het Stargate Project. Hoewel ze zichzelf ‘medium’ noemt, gebruikte het ministerie van Defensie liever de term ‘remote viewer’.
“Ik was goed in het vinden van mensen,” zei ze. “Ik was goed in het vinden van dingen.”
Ford lokaliseerde gijzelaars en voortvluchtigen vanuit een gebouw in Fort Meade in Maryland.
Hoewel het programma in 1995 werd beëindigd, doet het Amerikaanse leger hier nog steeds onderzoek naar.
Zo wordt onder meer gekeken of soldaten aanvoelen wat er gaat gebeuren, ook wel precognitie genoemd.
In my recent article,”U.K. Government UFO Research: The Real Picture,” I shared the story of how the U.K.’s police – specifically Special Branch – secretly opened, in the 1950s, a surveillance file on George King, the founder of the Aetherius Society. But who, exactly, was George King? Well, that’s the subject of today’s article. George King was born in Wellington, Shropshire, England in 1919 to parents George and Mary, and went on to become one of the most well-known of all the Contactees of the 1950s and 1960s. Even from a very young age, King was surrounded by distinct high-strangeness. His mother and grandmother both claimed to be psychics; and, in his book You Too Can Heal, King related how, at the age of eleven, and while his mother was seriously ill and confined to bed, he headed deep into the heart of nearby woods, where he prayed intently for her speedy recovery. As he did so, King said, an “angelic being” manifested before him in the ancient woodland, instructing him to return home, as his mother was now fully cured. After excitedly racing home and learning that she was indeed restored to full health, a realization came to King that his life was not at all like that of the other kids in the neighborhood.
At the outbreak of the Second World War, King – a “conscientious objector” who refused to fight for his country against Hitler’s hordes – took a position in London with the National Fire Service, ultimately becoming a section-leader. By the time the hostilities were at a close – in 1945 – King was in his mid-twenties, and had begun to develop a deep interest in yoga, alternative therapies, and new-age-style belief systems. This radical change in the mindset of King came to the fore on a Saturday morning in May 1954, when, while doing nothing stranger than washing the dishes in his Maida Vale, London apartment, he heard a loud, disembodied voice cry out: “Prepare yourself! You are to become the voice of Interplanetary Parliament!”
Allegedly, in the days, weeks and months that followed, said King, he became the recipient of countless channeled messages: from a “great Yogi adept” who materialized in his apartment and warned him of “the unfeeling march of science into the realms of the atom.” Further messages came from a highly spiritual, Venusian being named Aetherius, who bestowed a wealth of words of wisdom upon a shocked, yet profoundly elevated, King. Indeed, so elevated and changed by the cosmic experiences was King that he quickly quit his job as a taxi-driver, and established the Aetherius Society, believing that space-aliens held “the key to the salvation both of the planet as a whole and of every individual on Earth.”
On July 23, 1958, King, somewhat outrageously, claimed a close encounter with none other than Jesus Christ atop Holdstone Down – a 330 meter-high hill above the village of Combe Martin, in the English county of Devonshire. So the story went, thirteen days earlier, King received a channeled message from Aetherius, who advised him to travel to Combe Martin where he would receive instructions from an “adept from Mars.” Seeing nothing strange in this at all, King dutifully did as he was told. Sure enough, upon taking his position on Holdstone Down he could see a “blue sphere” hovering over the waters of the Bristol Channel; after which Jesus – dressed in a flowing and glowing robe, and sporting a wand – manifested in the skies above.
The researchers Dr. David Clarke and Andy Roberts say: “Waves of energy passed between the entity and King who was plunged into a religious rapture before ‘Jesus’ stepped into a beam of light and vanished. King realized that Holdstone Down was now charged, a spiritual power battery whose energies were inexhaustible.” It seems King’s own energies were inexhaustible, too: one year later, he founded an American branch of the Aetherius Society – in Los Angeles, where King ultimately moved to live permanently, and where he continued to spread the words of wisdom bestowed upon him by the various other-worldly entities with whom he claimed to have communed.
Clarke and Roberts add: “The Aetherius Society were never a huge organization, indeed their numbers rarely totaled more than one thousand members worldwide…The Aetherius Societywas not for everyone but, for those seekers who wanted or needed a spiritual dimension to their saucer beliefs, they provided a philosophy, structure and network of sincere like-minded souls.”
George King suffered a heart-attack in 1986, underwent a multiple heart bypass in 1992, and died in Santa Barbara on July 12, 1997. The Aetherius Societycontinues to thrive.

Here is a unique sighting from New York. A craft that has several long thick arms floated over the city. The eyewitness caught only several seconds of footage before it moved past them, but it was enough to get some good screenshots. I added light to one photo (above only) and left the originals below. We can see in the screenshots that the object has an unrecognizable shape and design. Its like nothing I have ever seen before. I do love when a UFO is reported with a shape that I have never seen before...it really challenges the imagination. If seeing is believing, then this is it.

It was very odd looking, moving very smoothly. At first I thought it was a helicopter carrying something, I had to stop and get a closer look. It was almost floating.

The UFO is moving horizontal to the mountains and looks like its moving very fast since it does have a slight blur to it. The blur could also be due to the crafts alien propulsion system causing a distortion around the craft. The disk may have come from an underground base nearby. Often aliens chose to make bases 4-6 miles under volcanos and steep mountains where humans are less likely to travel. Scott C. Waring Eyewitness states:
I identified a strange object in a picture I took on my vacations, it is not a picture defect.
The golf-cart-size Opportunity touched down on Mars in late January 2004, three weeks after its twin, Spirit, landed in a different part of the Red Planet.
The two solar-powered rovers embarked on three-month missions to hunt for signs of past water activity. Both found lots of such evidence in relatively short order and then continued exploring, rolling through the red dirt for years after their warranties expired.
Spirit finally gave up the ghost in 2010 after getting bogged down in a Martian sand trap, but Opportunity has remained remarkably healthy and resilient over the years. No vehicle, robotic or crewed, has ever traveled farther on the surface of another world than Opportunity, whose odometer currently reads 28.06 miles (45.16 kilometers).
In late May of this year, however, NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter spotted a dust storm swirling near Opportunity's locale, the rim of the 14-mile-wide (22 km) Endeavour Crater. The storm intensified over the ensuing days, throwing so much dust into the Martian atmosphere that Opportunity couldn't harvest enough sunlight to recharge its batteries.
The rover fell silent on June 10, apparently putting itself in a sort of hibernation mode. And the storm kept growing; by June 20, it had become a global maelstrom, encircling the entire planet.
The danger to Opportunity is very real. The rover cannot operate its onboard heaters in its current state, so Opportunity could freeze to death if the ambient temperature drops low enough.
"If things get too cold, they can break," Squyres said, citing soldering joints and other key pieces of internal hardware as examples.
How cold is too cold? Nobody knows. During pre-launch tests, both Spirit and Opportunity survived extended exposure to temperatures as low as minus 67 degrees Fahrenheit (minus 55 degrees Celsius). But Opportunity has endured about 5,000 taxing day-night thermal cycles on the Red Planet over the past 14.5 years, so it's unclear how resilient its internal components are today.
"At what temperature do they break now? We don't know," Squyres said.
Somewhat paradoxically, the dust storm mitigates this problem a bit. All of that airborne dust prevents a lot of sunlight from reaching the surface during the day, but it also traps infrared radiation (heat) at night. The result is cooler days but warmer-than-usual nights — and supercold nights are the biggest concern for Opportunity. (In case you were wondering: NASA's other active Mars rover, Curiosity, is nuclear-powered and is therefore largely unbothered by the dust storm.)
The dust is clearing
The storm began abating last month, and the skies are continuing to clear, Squyres said. However, it'll probably take an extended period of relatively sunny weather — not just a single good day — to rouse Opportunity, if the rover is indeed still alive.
Squyres said he's not sure if that good-weather threshold has yet been cleared.
"But with the storm well into its decay phase, we have now reached the point where it really makes sense to start listening closely," he said.
The team is doing just that, scouring all the communications from NASA Mars-exploring robots for any peep from Opportunity. Mission team members are also pinging the rover regularly during scheduled "wake-up times," then listening for a response, NASA officials have said.
If Opportunity does pull through, the rover almost certainly won't get back to business as usual right away. The six-wheeled robot has been through quite an ordeal, Squyres stressed; it'll therefore probably take a few weeks to bring Opportunity out of whatever "fault mode" it has fallen into and assess its health and capabilities.
But again: It's premature to speculate about such things right now, with Opportunity's fate so up in the air.
"It's either going to be a miraculous recovery, or an honorable death," Squyres said.
Incredible NASA Photos Show Jupiter's Marbled Atmosphere
Incredible NASA Photos Show Jupiter's Marbled Atmosphere
By Meghan Bartels, Space.com Senior Writer
A stunning series of photographs captured by NASA's Juno spacecraft highlights the complicated dynamics of Jupiter's atmosphere.
The images, taken July 16 between 12:54 a.m. and 1:11 a.m. EDT (0454 and 0511 GMT) by the JunoCam camera on board NASA's Juno spacecraft, show the atmospheric features in Jupiter's northern hemisphere, NASA officials said in a statement when releasing the image yesterday (Aug. 27).
Those features include an anticyclone storm marked by a white oval, most easily seen in the second image; a storm nicknamed the Little Red Spot, visible at the bottom of the second and third images; and an orange stripe called the North North Temperate Belt, visible in the last two images.
The images were captured during Juno's 14th close skim over Jupiter's surface, when the spacecraft came as close as 3,900 miles (6,000 kilometers) above the planet's clouds. JunoCam is controlled by the public, and members of the public process the raw photographs from the camera and turn them into stunning images like these.
The $1.1 billion Juno mission launched in August 2011 and has been studying the gas giant planet since July 2016. The spacecraft is due to remain at work for almost three more years, which means scientists can keep watching these atmospheric features as they change over time.
The Anunnaki Creation Story: Humanity's Biggest Secret
The Anunnaki Creation Story: Humanity's Biggest Secret
I found this presentation really very palatable and quite easy to understand and ingest.
The information in here is maligned and played down by some/many, but although Sitchin's work has been questioned by certain types, a good argument for its validity is made in this video by saying (paraphrasing):
“Look, A, B, and C are all verifiably attributed to this civilization with zero doubt or controversy…yet somehow D isn’t? Come on. Let’s look at D and see what it says and what’s really going on here.”
Adding to the mystery has been claims that all the monuments of Giza in the African nation were perfectly aligned with certain constellations.
Many have argued for decades that ancestors in Egypt were physically unable to build the incredible Pyramids of Giza.
They suggest that advanced lifeforms from space passed on their knowledge or created the monuments before civilisations emerged.
One conspiracy website outerworlds.com dedicates a whole section to the argument that "aliens built the pyramids”, reports Express.co.uk.
IMPOSSIBLE: Theorists claim it would have been impossible for humans to build the Pyramids
MYSTERY: Some believe intelligent lifeforms were responsible for the Pyramids of Giza
The theory then says because two diagonal lines extend from the pyramids on either side of the Nile River delta, the early Egyptians could not have known this when building them.
It says: "How could the Egyptians possibly have built their pyramid facing the exact magnetic North Pole without even having a compass?
"Those aliens, abundant in their knowledge and drowning in technology, came along and using their compasses, they landed on earth and found the actual magnetic north and south poles.
“Then they built the pyramids."
“Those aliens, abundant in their knowledge and drowning in technology, built the pyramids.”
But theorists claim the Pyramids were just one of a number of incredible structures built thousands of years ago when it would not have been possible with technology of the age.
The potential alien buildings include Stonehenge in Wiltshire which boasts stones weighing as much as 50 tonnes, and a 1,000-year-old interlocking stone fortress outside the Inca capital of Cusco in Peru.
In the same South American country, the 800 long and straight Nasca Lines which feature 300 geometric shapes and 70 figures of animals are another creation of wonder linked to ancients ETs.
And some claim aliens were also responsible for the 900 human stone figures on Easter Island in the South Pacific Ocean, which date back more than 1,000 years.

Being called “The Bermuda Triangle of ____” is never a good thing … just ask the people who have disappeared the Bridgewater Triangle (Massachusetts), the Bennington Triangle Glastenbury), the Dragon’s Triangle (Japan), the Michigan Triangle (you can figure this one out yourself) and the Matlock Triangle (Derbyshire Dales). These other triangles are on land or in the ocean, but none are on ice. That unique distinction belongs to Piteraq Alley, the Bermuda Triangle of Greenland, and this mysterious area is in the news because researchers announced they have found a lost World War II P-38 from the infamous Lost Squadron under over 300 feet (91 meters) of ice in the Piteraq Alley.
Credit for the discovery goes to businessman Jim Salazar and Ken McBride from the non-profit Arctic Hotpoint Solutions and Fallen American MIA Repatriation Foundation (FAMIARF), who have spent a number of years searching for planes and crew remains lost in the area, especially the Lost Squadron – a group of two B-17 bombers and six P-38 fighters flying from the U.S. to Britain in July 1942 as part of Operation Bolero, delivering planes, pilots, equipment and supplies for the war. The path they followed was known at the time as the Snowball Route – a string of secret bases from Maine to Newfoundland to Greenland to Iceland to Scotland. Greenland was a crucial stop – it was the only reliable source of cryolite, a mineral used to produce aluminum for the planes.
“It’s Greenland’s ‘Bermuda Triangle’ … the weather there shifts in a matter of minutes. As a pilot, you can clearly understand why there were so many difficulties in that area.”
By “difficulties,” Salazar means that the Lost Squadron planes weren’t the only ones lost in Piteraq Alley. While the indigenous Intuits didn’t know about airplanes or Bermuda, they did know about the dangers of the Alley – Piteraq means “that which attacks you” and is their word for Greenland’s severe snowstorms that can appear in just minutes. Despite searches, a piteraq likely covered the downed planes quickly and nothing was found until 1992, when the first P-38 from the group was discovered, recovered and restored. Salazar himself has been leading searches since 2011, but it wasn’t until July 2018 that one of his drones using ground-penetrating radar found evidence of something unusual in the ice. They then used a thermal probe to melt through the ice to a depth of 300 feet, where they found red i5606 Hydraulic fluid from the P-38. As Live Science reports, further investigations identified it as P-38 “Echo,” piloted by Army Air Corps Lt. Col. Robert Wilson. (Pictures of the drone and the expedition can be seen here.)
That’s as much as Salazar’s team can do for now … it’s Greenland and winter is already blowing through. Next summer, he plans to dig and melt through the ice to recover the P-38 and any remains, then return it to the U.S. for possible restoration. He will also be looking for two other victims of the Greenland Triangle – a C-53 cargo plane (a converted DC-3 civilian aircraft) which crashed in late 1942 and a U.S. Coast Guard Duck aircraft which crashed in a futile attempt to rescue the survivors.
Are there any other victims of the Greenland Triangle? It appears planes have avoided the area due to the severity and unexpectedness of piteraqs. Also, piteraqs are a low-altitude weather phenomenon. These high-density katabatic winds start on Greenland’s icecaps and are pulled by gravity down the slopes like ground-hugging hurricanes. The Danish Meteorological Institute has measured speeds from 50 to 80 m/s (180-288 km/h; 111-178 mph). On February 6, 1970, the community of Tasiilaq was hit by the worst documented piteraq ever in Greenland, with winds estimated at 90 m/s or over 200 miles per hour. Since then, the Danish Meteorological Institute has been issuing piteraq warnings.
Piteraq Alley has definitely earned its title as Greenland’s Bermuda Triangle. While not as mysterious, it’s unquestionably as deadly and worth avoiding in the air or on the ground.
Russia’s undeniable and outrageous meddling in things that are none of their business has a significant bearing on the UFO issue of yesteryear. With that in mind, I thought it would be timely to bring to your attention a few intriguing and eye-opening issues. Firstly, the pro-Russia stance of a certain famous UFO Contactee. That man was George Adamski. He was arguably the most famous and controversial of all the Contactees: he claimed multiple encounters with human-like aliens from other worlds, including Venus, no less (yeah, right…). The facts concerning the Russian issue are contained in Adamski’s FBI file, which is in the public domain, thanks to the terms of the U.S. Freedom of Information Act. An FBI document of May 28, 1952 reveals that the FBI had a credible source who, back in 1950, had shared with them certain data on Adamski. The file states:
“On September 5, 1950, [source] advised the San Diego Office that he first met Adamski about three months ago at the café which is named the Palomar Gardens Café, owned and operated by Adamski, at the road junction, five miles East of Rincon, California, at a point where the highway branches off leading to Mount Palomar Observatory. [Source] advised that Adamski has four or five women working in the café and according to [source] business does not warrant the employment of four or five persons. [Source] stated that on August 20, 1950, the occasion of his last visit to Adamski’s café, he [source] and a [deleted] of San Diego, became involved in a lengthy conversation with Adamski during which Adamski told them at great length of his findings of flying saucers and so forth. He told them of a space ship which he said he saw between the earth and the moon, which he estimated to be approximately three miles in length, which was flying so fast that he had to take about eighty photographs before he could get three of them to turn out.”
The story continues: “At this time, Adamski showed [source] and [deleted] a number of photographs which he has taken of what he purports to be flying saucers. [Source] commented that one of these photographs was published in the ‘San Diego Union’ under the caption of ‘What is it?’ Adamski stated he had first submitted this particular photograph to the Navy but when it appeared they were not interested, he, Adamski, released it for publication in the ‘San Diego Union.’
“According to [source] Adamski stated that the Federal Communications Commission, under the direction of the ‘Military Government’ of the United States, has established communication with the people from other worlds, and has learned that they are so much more advanced than the inhabitants of this earth that they have deciphered the languages used here. Adamski stated that in this interplanetary communication, the Federal Communications Commission asked the inhabitants of the other planet concerning the type of government they had there and the reply indicated that it was very different from the democracy of the United States. Adamski stated that his answer was kept secret by the United States Government, but he added, ‘If you ask me they probably have a Communist form of government and our American government wouldn’t release that kind of thing, naturally. That is a thing of the future – more advanced.’”
This is, of course, all highly controversial. And, it’s very easy to understand why the FBI should have taken such a deep interest in Adamski’s opinions on extraterrestrials and communism. Let’s not forget that at the time – the very early 1950s – Joseph Stalin still ruled ruthlessly over the Soviet Union. I suspect that if Adamski had actually visited Russia in that period, he would have headed back to the United States in rapid-time. And without a look back. The FBI file continues: “Adamski, during this conversation, made the prediction that Russia will dominate the world and we will then have an era of peace for 1,000 years. He stated that Russia already has the atom bomb and the hydrogen bomb and that the great earthquake, which was reported behind the Iron Curtain recently, was actually a hydrogen bomb explosion being tried out by the Russians. Adamski states this ‘earthquake’ broke seismograph machines and he added that no normal earthquake can do that.”
There was even more, too: “Adamski stated that within the next twelve months, San Diego will be bombed. Adamski stated that it does not make any difference if the United States has more atom bombs than Russia inasmuch as Russia needs only ten atom bombs to cripple the United States by placing these simultaneously on such spots as Chicago and other vital centers of this country. Adamski further stated the United States today is in the same state of deterioration as was the Roman Empire prior to its collapse and it will fall just as the Roman Empire did. He stated the Government in this country is a corrupt form of government and capitalists are enslaving the labor.”
The FBI also recorded the following: “[Source] advised that when Adamski left the group for a brief period, one of the women working in the café came over and entered into the conversation. She stated that some of our servicemen who stopped there to have drinks during World War II and subsequent thereto, told ‘Professor’ Adamski of the atrocities which they were forced to commit, murdering women and children on orders of their superior officers. [Deleted] exhibited a great deal of animosity against the United States, stating the United States committed more atrocities during World War II than did the Japanese but since the Japanese were the ones who lost the war, they were the ones who were tried as war criminals.”
The source had more to say, as the FBI papers demonstrate: “This woman added that a friend of hers who recently returned from Russia stated he was very pleased with everything he found there. He stated to her that the people in Russia received seven tickets per month for the opera and cinema. These tickets are free, being issued by the government. The woman added ‘The people there (in Russia) don’t have to be worrying about where their next meal is coming from. Everything is fine in Russia and in the United States we have to fight for everything we get.'”
There was this, too, from the FBI: “[Source] advised that Adamski returned to continue his conversation stating that the United States will soon be in the same condition that Europe was in during the last war. He added that ‘It is a good idea to be quiet now. Right now if you talk in favor of Communism you will be spotted as a Communist and if you talk against Communism you will be spotted by the Communist, so it’s best to just shut up.’ Adamski stated to [source] that ‘The United States hasn’t a chance to win the war. Russia will take over the United States.'” This was all deeply inflammatory. It’s no surprise, at all, that the FBI made Adamski a person of interest.
Now, let’s focus on the matter of potential Russian meddling and the UFO Contactee movement – way back in the 1950s, no less. Truman Bethurum was someone who, in the early-to-mid 1950s, claimed flirty, close encounters with a beautiful alien space-babe named Aura Rhanes. Most people, very understandably, dismissed Bethurum’s tales as fantasies run wild. After all, at the time, his second marriage was on the rocks. It’s intriguing, however, to note the following words from Bethurum:
“Two or three fellows who had sons in Korea and who read a lot in the newspapers about the Communist underground in this country, were convinced in their own minds that I was, if making contact with anyone at all, making it with enemy agents[italics mine]. They even went so far as to tell me belligerently that they intended to get guns and follow me nights, and if they caught up me having intercourse with any people from planes, airships of any kind, they’d blast me and those people too.” Was Aura Rhanes a figment of Bethurum’s imagination? Could she have been an alien? Or, might she have been one of those “enemy agents” to which Bethurum referred? Just maybe, a Russian enemy agent seeking to manipulate the UFO scene?
Now, let’s take a look at the words of the late Jim Moseley, who, for years, ran the Saucer Smear newsletter. Moseley said of his time spent in 1950s-era Ufology: “…I had fallen under the influence of Charles Samwick, a retired army intelligence officer. Both a saucer fiend and very concerned about Communist subversion. Samwick was active in New York City-area saucering circles. Quite sincere and most convincing, he told me…‘the Communist Party has planted an agent in every civilian saucer club in the United States [italics mine].’”
Interestingly, in the June-July, 1955 issue of his other newsletter, Saucer News, Moseley stated: “…Let us give some very serious consideration to the many alleged space men being called to the public’s attention – all of whom invariably tell us of the dangers of war and the exploitation of atomic energy. No one desires peace any more sincerely than we do, but let us remember too that it is part of the Communist ‘peace line’ to frighten the American people into ceasing our atomic experiments. It is quite possible that some of these ‘space men’ are unwittingly playing into the hands of the Communists.” Or, maybe, the “space men” were communists: Russiancommunists. Moseley also offered this: “Could it be that Orthon[one of George Adamski’s alleged, extremely-human-looking alien visitors] was a Communist agent [italics mine], maybe from the Red Planet – or at least the Kremlin – rather than Venus?”
Orfeo Angelucci was another of the early UFO Contactees. Although he never gained the level of popularity that George Adamski achieved, he certainly left his mark on Ufology. His books included The Secret of the Saucers and Son of the Sun. Angelucci made an intriguing statement in the early years of his time as a Contactee. He revealed that on one occasion, and while on a “tour of the East,” he met with what he described as a “subversive element.” That same subversive element attempted to “convert me to Communism” and – more significantly – to “slant my talks along the Party Line [italics mine].”
Whoever these meddling communists were, Angelucci made his position very clear: “Communism is the negation of all that is honest and good in the world and in humanity. They would enslave the human mind. Their obstructiveness is willful and planned. We must eventually meet this murderous element at Armageddon; when it will be victory for one side or the other. Good will triumph, or evil! Every entity in the world and the adjoining planes is now aligned definitely upon one side or the other. No matter what the outcome of the conflict, the positive element of good will ultimately attain a greater life and progression; whereas the negative will meet death, destruction and a new beginning in a more hostile environment. As you have made your choice, so be it!’”
Was there a concerted, meddling effort on the part of the Soviets, back in the early 1950s, to use the UFO Contactee issue as a means to promote communism and the Russian way of life? Was George Adamski’s clear admiration for communism provoked by him having been influenced by the very same people that approached Orfeo Angelucci? Maybe Truman Bethurum too? And, maybe even to create hysteria and fear in the United States? Don’t bet against it. Take, for example, the matter of the CIA’s Robertson Panel, which, in part, addressed the matter of UFOs and how the phenomenon could potentially be manipulated for sinister purposes. In the very same time-frame that the Contactee movement was at its height, the panel’s members feared that Russian interference might have an adverse effect on U.S. national security. On this matter, I will leave you with the words of the Robertson Panel and their thoughts on the matter of UFOs, the then-Soviet threat, and possible Russian manipulation:
“…although evidence of any direct threat from these [UFO] sightings was wholly lacking, related dangers might well exist resulting from:
A. Misidentification of actual enemy artifacts by defense personnel.
B. Overloading of emergency reporting channels with ‘false’ information [italics mine].
C. Subjectivity of public to mass hysteria and greater vulnerability to possible enemy psychological warfare [italics mine].”

'Sporen van eerder universum ontdekt in de kosmische achtergrondstraling'
Ons universum is mogelijk niet het eerste. En ook niet het laatste.
Onderzoekers denken bewijs te hebben gevonden van een vorig universum. Dat wil zeggen; de overblijfselen van zwarte gaten uit een ander universum. Het onderzoek borduurt voort op het kosmologische model dat kortweg CCC wordt genoemd (dat staat voor Conformal cyclic cosmology). Volgens dit – niet onomstreden – model volgen verschillende universums elkaar op.
Hawking-punten Het bewijs komt in de vorm van Hawking-punten, vernoemd naar Stephen Hawking. Hij theoretiseerde dat zwarte gaten straling zouden uitzenden, die bekend staat als Hawking-straling. Volgens de onderzoekers zou deze straling overspringen van het ene universum naar het andere. En ze denken nu, na een analyse van onze nachtelijke hemel, 30 van deze punten gevonden te hebben in de kosmische achtergrondstraling.
Zwart gat Even een stapje terug. In het centrum van onze Melkweg bevindt zich een superzwaar zwart gat. Over ongeveer 4 miljard jaar zal onze Melkweg botsen met Andromeda, onze dichtstbijzijnde buur. Tijdens die gebeurtenis zal het grotere superzware zwarte gat van dit sterrenstelsel samensmelten met het onze. Als deze zwarte gaten om elkaar heen draaien en samenvloeien, wordt er een enorme energiepuls afgegeven. In de daaropvolgende periode botsen andere sterrenstelsels tegen het onze, waardoor er een enorm zwart gat overblijft, omringd door een uitgestorven stofwolk. Maar dit is niet het einde…
“WAT WE BEWEREN TE ZIEN IS HET LAATSTE OVERBLIJFSEL NADAT EEN ZWART GAT IN EEN VORIG UNIVERSUM IS VERDAMPT”
Overblijfselen Ons universum breidt zich uit en terwijl het afkoelt, zullen de zwarte gaten gaan branden. Hoewel deze gloed buitengewoon zwak is, valt deze wel voor enige tijd aan de nachtelijke hemel te aanschouwen. Dit zijn de Hawking-punten, die vanuit een volgend universum gezien kunnen worden. En waarvan de onderzoekers dus denken er een aantal ontmaskerd te hebben. “Wat we beweren te zien is het laatste overblijfsel nadat een zwart gat in een vorig universum is verdampt,” verklaart co-auteur Roger Penrose.
Of deze theorie juist is, valt nog te bezien. Want op dit moment moet het echte bewijs van deze Hawking-straling, of Hawking-punten nog aangetoond worden. Er is dus nog veel werk te verrichten voordat iemand het definitieve bestaan van een vorig universum hard kan maken.
Instead of cave dwellers gathered around a campfire, roasting mastodon meat, imagine an octopus tribe floating around a hydrothermal vent at the seafloor, boiling lobsters.
That’s the scenario sketched out by Dirk Schulze-Makuch, an astrobiologist at Germany’s Technical Institute Berlin who’s also an adjunct professor at Arizona State University and Washington State University.
Earth’s oceans provide an example in the form of cephalopods. Octopuses and squid are thought to have evolved strictly in the oceans, in contrast to dolphins and whales, which spent part of their evolutionary history on land. Octopuses are also arguably tool users, based on what they can do with coconut shells.
Under the right conditions, could such water-dwelling creatures develop technology on an alien water world? That may be more challenging than it was for our forebears, Schulze-Makuch says.
“Fire can’t exist underwater, and fire is thought to have been essential for humans to develop technology,” Schulze-Makuch notes. However, there’s one potential avenue that he and co-author William Bains explore in their book, “The Cosmic Zoo: Complex Life on Many Worlds.”
“Perhaps smart ocean creatures could use thermal vents on an alien planet’s seafloor to supply concentrated heat energy,” Schulze-Makuch says. “Such energy wouldn’t be as portable or controllable as fire, but the underwater civilization could farm fish without fire, or perhaps use other resources to make tools and technology. As an example, long strands of kelp could be ideal for making rope.”
The prospect of finding life on water worlds isn’t merely a matter for science-fiction speculation: Astrobiologists suspect that hydrothermal activity could support life within the hidden oceans of Europa and Enceladus, ice-covered moons that orbit Jupiter and Saturn.
Ancient 'Alien' Wasp Hijacked Fly Pupae, Ate the Flies Inside
Ancient 'Alien' Wasp Hijacked Fly Pupae, Ate the Flies Inside
By Mindy Weisberger, Senior Writer
Fossilized fly pupae are about as exciting to look at as a handful of dingy, stale Rice Krispies. But despite their humdrum appearance, fossil pupae can hold fascinating secrets inside; in some cases, they preserve deadly examples of insect parasitism.
Scientists recently investigated hundreds of fossil pupae — the inactive life stage between larva and adult — dating to the Paleogene period (about 65 million to 23 million years ago). They found unexpected stowaways inside: four new wasp species.
The wasps reproduced by parasitism, with females laying their eggs inside the bodies of pupating flies. Then, as the wasp larvae grew, they used the flies as a convenient, all-you-can-eat buffet. In most cases, the flies were entirely consumed, and the wasps died and became fossilized while still inside the flies' chrysalis shells. [The 10 Most Diabolical and Disgusting Parasites]
The researchers discovered the wasps by peering into pupae with X-ray scans, then reconstructing what they found inside with 3D computer modeling. They named the most common wasp Xenomorphia resurrecta— the first part of its name alludes to the terrifying, parasitic Xenomorphin the "Alien" sci-fi movies, while the second part of its name refers to the extinct species' "resurrection" through digital imaging, the scientists reported in a new study.
Many species of parasitic wasps are around today, targeting caterpillars, fly maggots, spiders and ladybugs as living meals for their ravenous young. One enterprising wasp species — named Euderus set, after the Egyptian god of evil and chaos — chooses targets that are in its own family, parasitizing other species of parasitic wasps.
But fossil evidence of parasitism in ancient wasps is exceptionally rare. Previously, the only example came from a single mineralized fly pupa from a site in Quercy, a region in southwestern France, dating to about 40 million to 30 million years ago, the researchers wrote.
For the new study, the scientists examined 1,510 pupae, also from the Quercy site in France. They found 55 pupae that showed signs of being parasitized, and 52 pupae preserved the bodies of adult wasps. It's possible that the tough exoskeleton of adults was more resistant to decay than the softer tissues of their earlier developmental stages; this could explain why adult wasps were more abundant in the fossils, according to the study.
In addition to X. resurrecta, the scientists found more wasp species inside the fly pupae: Xenomorphia handschini, Coptera anka and Palaeortona quercyensis. Digital reconstruction of the fossilized wasps' delicate bodies pointed to subtle differences that defined the wasps as different species, and even hinted at the ecological niches they may have filled; the head and body shapes of C. anka and P. quercyensis suggested that they would have been better adapted to life on the ground than their Xenomorph-named cousins, the study authors reported.
Now, a team of German scientists has decided to make the connection between insects and aliens legit by naming newly discovered parasitic wasp species after the Xenomorphs from the sci-fi horror movie Alien.
In the movie, a baby chestburstercrawls out of actor John Hurt's torso in an explosion of blood and guts. The surviving movie characters realize to their horror that humans make perfect hosts for aliens to lay their eggs.
A new study, published Tuesday in Nature Communications, shows that in the real world, parasitic wasps have been using similarly creepy tactics for millions of years.
Parasitic wasps make hosts of other insects just like the the Aliens, laying eggs inside or on top of other insects.
As the young wasps grow, they eat the hosts' bodies from the inside out, and often burst through their hosts' abdomens, just like the chestbursters in Alien.
For the study, scientists from Germany examined 1,510 fossilized fly pupae in total from the Paleogene period found in France.
Fossil evidence for insect host–parasitoid interactions is considered extremely rare, so ideas about parasite evolution has been considered assumptive, until now.
Using synchrotron X-ray imaging, the scientists discovered four new parasitic wasps hiding inside 55 mineralized fossils of fly larvae dating back 30 million to 40 million-years-old.
"It's the first time we definitely have proof of a developing parasitoid wasp inside its host in the fossil record," Thomas van de Kamp, an entomologist from the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology in Germany and lead author, told the New York Times on Tuesday.
The German team, who identified the specimens of the newly discovered wasp species, have officially named two of the species Xenomorphia resurrecta and Xenomorphia handschini.
In the spirit of Aliens, maybe it's time to nuke these wasps from space.
A spider's erection, and other cool things trapped in amber
In many ways, amber is nature's historian. As a tree resin, it starts as a sticky flowing substance that often traps flora and fauna in its path. Then, as volatile compounds in the resin evaporate and other chemical changes take place, it becomes fossilized, preserving its contents for millions of years.
Not only is amber prized by jewelry makers, it's also valued by scientists, who can peer into it to look back at the past in a very real way.
Perhaps one of the most striking examples of amber's ability to freeze time is this specimen of a harvestman spider, also known as a daddy long legs. This particular critter was about to have sex, as evidenced by its erect penis, which is normally hidden inside the body in its less excited state.
The spider is estimated to be about 99 million years old, which certainly adds new meaning to lasting forever. The spider's discovery was reported in The Science of Nature journal in January 2016.
"This is the first record of a male copulatory organ of this nature preserved in amber and is of special importance due to the age of the deposit," reads the paper on the find.

Noah’s Ark was a PYRAMID and he may have been a Pharaoh, Dead Sea Scrolls findings reveal
More than 50 years ago, a shepherd found seven scrolls in the Qumran Caves in the Judean desert of the West Bank near to the Dead Sea.
The findings formed a larger manuscript which have been come to be known as the Dead Sea Scrolls.
The papers contain Biblical and non-Biblical stories and have offered scientists a glimpse into the past and shed new light on Abrahamic religions.
The latest discovery, which was found by scientists who scanned a piece of the Dead Sea Scrolls using different wavelengths of light at 28 times higher resolution than standard scans, revealed that Noah’s Ark was pyramid-shaped.
The Qumran Cave, where some of the scrolls were found
Experts had been unable to read a word following the Hebrew phrase “the ark’s tallness” on the scrolls, but thanks to the high-tech scan, they have now discovered that the word is ‘ne’esefet’.
The translation of ne’esefet from Hebrew to English means “gathered”, which Dr Alexey Yuditsky from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem says means that the ark’s ribs were gathered at the top to form a shape of a pyramid.
and the discovery is actually backed up by previous findings.

This discovery has led some to believe Noah was actually a pharaoh
Dr Yuditsky says the Septuagint, which is a Greek translation of the Bible which dates back to the third century BC, also describes the ark’s shape as a pyramid, while medieval authors such as Maimonides also suggested the same.
This discovery has led some to believe Noah, who escaped from ancient Egypt, was actually a pharaoh, as pyramids were a sign of high standing in the North African empire at the time.
Blogger Jesse Waugh writes on his website: “Many 'alternative' historians now believe that Moses was Akhenaten, who escaped to Amarna with his people and his Queen Nefertiti, and where he set up a new society dedicated to the veneration of the monotheistic sun-god Aten.
“Is the Old Testament actually the story of the Pharaohs of Ancient Egypt?”

Police in Argentina Claim They Have Taken the First Photograph of a Real Alien
Police in Argentina Claim They Have Taken the First Photograph of a Real Alien
If anyone can be trusted to give an accurate description of something, it would be the police, right. Well, police officers in Argentina have claimed that they have taken a photograph of a real-life alien.
While many people have claimed in the past to capture photos of aliens, the images have been blurred, with the supposed alien away in the distance or mostly hidden. This time around, it is different as the photograph came from an official body that is trusted, the Argentinian police force.
Photograph of Alien Has Shocked People
The image had shocked many people, both believers, along with disbelievers when it made its way around conspiracy websites after it was revealed on Facebook, according to Alien-ufo-sightings. com.
Reports attached to the photograph suggest that police officer in Argentina were called out to investigate a disturbance after someone reported strange behaviour occurring in the region of Parque Mitre in Corrientes.
When police responded to the call out, they came across what could only be described as a humanoid-like being. Quick to act the police officers managed to take out their mobile phone to capture a photograph of the creature among the trees.
Some Disbelievers Have De-Bunked the Photograph
As always, there are disbelievers with them saying that the photograph has apparently been edited. Some people say it is a modified version of the alien that was in the movie starring Mel Gibson, Signs or it came from the alien horror movie, Ovni.
Others believe that the photograph taken by the police officers is the best evidence so far that aliens are on Earth. Terry Larch spoke out on the Freaklore website is saying, “In the country of Argentina, one of the most magnificent alien photos ever taken has been recently captured.
“The photograph is incredible and may be the best evidence of aliens living among us yet.”
He went on to report that the local police had attended the scene in Argentina on September 13, 2017, when teenagers in the region reported they had seen an alien in woodland and reported the sighting to the police. He said the teenagers had reported seeing a strange creature lurking around. A group of officers then arrived at the scene. The police found the teenagers, who were said to be in a state of panic, where they found an alien being among the trees.
The police walked slowly over to the being among the trees and at that point realized that it was not a human being. Larch said, “It appeared to be a rather traditional looking extraterrestrial, typically seen in movies or drawings.”
The Alien Creature Disappeared into the River
Reports from the police officers said the creature had fled when they approached too closely. The creature went into the Parana River where they lost sight of it. Larch did say that this is the first time someone has captured the photograph of an alien so closely along with being in such clarity, so it does raise suspicions.
Larch said, “Clearly while glancing at the photograph, the shape and size of the alien is rather remarkable to see. It has the oval head shape and almond dark shaped eyes. Its hands appear to have only three fingers protruding outward. “From the distance of where the photograph was taken, it appears to be fairly tall in height as well.”
The Alien Photograph Has Caused a Stir among Believers
The photograph of the alien was first published on the Facebook page of radio station LT7AM 900 from Argentina. It was then published on conspiracy websites along with Diarioprimeralinea.com.ar. The website said they did not know if the photograph was a fake or the real deal.
Malcolm Robinson who attended the Paraforce Paranormal UK convention recently showed the image. Robinson was giving a lecture about real aliens coming to Earth along with showing photographs and this one was among them.
ALIEN HOAX: UFO researcher Malcolm Robinson revealed the image in the UK at Paraforce today.
Paranormal researcher Malcolm Robinson revealed the image to the UK at the Paraforce paranormal convention in Witham, Essex, on Sunday.
It was during a lecture he gave on pictures that could potentially be real aliens visiting Earth, and he said it was the latest one to emerge.
He said he did not know if it was real or a hoax, but argued aliens are visting Earth, and it was worth looking into further.
Mr Robinson said: "I do believe we are being visited by these creatures. The evidence for me is absolutely overwhelming.
"Just because something looks and sounds ridiculous, it does not mean to say it is."
One debunker with the user name Newdawnrising commented of the image: "Fake. Image taken and reversed from the movie "Signs".
"The face is the only change.
"The exact body positioning only flipped to face exact opposite.
"CGI. Debunked you're welcome."
Scott Brando, who debunks hoax videos through his website ufoofinterest.org, said the image was in fact just a still from a Spanish alien horror movie.
With a video showing the footage that includes the alien lurking behind the same tree, he tweeted: "Alien caught in #Corrientes #Argentina? That pic is a frame from Spanish horror movie OVNI."
He told Express.co.uk: "This is a fake story I debunked. Most likely a fake story created by a blog."
Robinson said it was one of the latest to be revealed. He admitted that he did not know if the picture had been edited or not, but did say that aliens are real and they do visit Earth. Robinson said the authenticity of the photograph should be looked into further.
He concluded by saying, “I do believe we are being visited by these creatures. The evidence for me is overwhelming. “Just because something looks and sounds ridiculous, it does not mean to say it is.”
Scott Brando debunks hoax videos along with photos. He said that he thought the image had been edited with the alien taken from a Spanish horror movie about aliens. He pointed to a video showing footage of an alien between trees. He went on to say most probably it was a photo from a fake story on a blog.
Snel instappen allemaal, we hebben haast. Ons reisdoel vliegt met een onvoorstelbaar hoge snelheid bij ons vandaan, ongeveer 26 kilometer per seconde.
Om het raadselachtige langgerekte hemellichaam in te halen, vergen we het uiterste van de motoren van ons ruimteschip. Het gaat om de eerste interstellaire bezoeker die we ooit konden waarnemen. Een telescoop op Hawaï fotografeerde hem bijna een jaar geleden voor het eerst. Al snel bleek dat het geen planetoïde in ons eigen zonnestelsel is, maar een kosmische binnendringer. Het hemellichaam kreeg de Hawaïaanse naam ’Oumuamua.
We volgen natuurlijk niet hetzelfde traject dat ’Oumuamua aflegt. Dat voerde in het najaar van 2017 op zeer kleine afstand langs de zon. We kiezen een andere route die de baan van ’Oumuamua kruist.
Onze boordtelescoop heeft het hemellichaam inmiddels in beeld. Het is inderdaad extreem langgerekt, met de vorm van een overmaatse komkommer. Dat leidden aardse wetenschappers al af uit de helderheidsvariaties. Je ziet ook duidelijk dat de stenige sigaar op een vreemde, buitelende manier ronddraait.
Landen is er natuurlijk niet bij. ’Oumuamua is hooguit een paar honderd meter lang. In onze telescoop kunnen we duidelijk zien dat het oppervlak extreem donker is, met een enigszins rode tint. Dat is het gevolg van langdurige blootstelling aan kosmische straling.
Ja, op aarde suggereerden sommige fantasierijke lieden wel dat ’Oumuamua in werkelijkheid een ruimteschip is van een andere intelligente beschaving, maar daarvan is niets te zien: geen raketmotoren, geen ramen, geen symbolen. Ook onze gevoelige radioantennes vangen geen enkel teken van leven op.
Maar wacht, er is toch iets merkwaardigs aan de hand. ’Oumuamua lijkt zich niet op de voorspelde positie te bevinden. Hij is al op veel grotere afstand van de zon aangekomen dan de oorspronkelijke baanberekeningen voorspelden. Hoe is dat mogelijk?
Alles wijst erop dat ’Oumuamua iets minder sterk door de zwaartekracht van de zon wordt afgeremd dan je zou verwachten. Anders gezegd: het hemellichaam is een tikje aan het versnellen, alsof het toch een kleine raketmotor aan boord heeft.
Onze navigator berekent een nieuwe onderscheppingskoers, anders valt de geplande scheervlucht in het water. Ondertussen breekt onder de bemanning een verhitte discussie los. Is het dan toch een buitenaards ruimteschip? Proberen de aliens zich aan pottenkijkers te onttrekken?
Terwijl we de ruimtekomkommer aan de dagzijde op kleine afstand passeren – wat een schitterend uitzicht levert dat op! – horen we plotseling zacht getik dat al snel overgaat in een soort mitrailleurvuur van scherpe knalletjes. Ons ruimteschip wordt bekogeld en gezandstraald door een bombardement van stof- en gruisdeeltjes.
Heeft ’Oumuamua het vuur op ons geopend?
Nee, onder invloed van de zonnewarmte is toch wat ondergronds ijs verdampt, waardoor stofkorrels en kleine kiezeltjes van het oppervlak losraakten. De wegstromende waterdamp voeren die mee in de richting van de zon, alsof er sprake is van de vervuilde uitlaatgassen van een raketmotor.
Het effect is hetzelfde: een kleine versnelling van het hemellichaam in de tegenovergestelde richting. Dat raketeffect namen astronomen eerder waar bij kometen. ’Oumuamua is geen dode, uitgebluste planetoïde, maar toch een ijsrijke komeet.
Kijk, daar tuimelt hij weg, de uitgestrekte ruimte buiten ons zonnestelsel in. Vaarwel, ’Oumuamua. Wij keren terug naar de aarde. Het heelal heeft nog veel meer voor ons in petto.
Phobos II was the last space probe designed by the Soviet Union. It was designed to explore the moons of Mars. Unexpectedly, we lost communication with it, and multiple insiders have said we weren't told the truth about what really happened.
Reflect on the fact that there is no so much evidence showing we are not alone, it's overwhelming, yet to a certain extent, society still ignores the biggest story in human history.
There is a serious possibility that we are being visited and have been visited for many years by people from outer space, from other civilizations. This should be the subject of rigorous scientific investigation and not the subject of ‘rubbishing’ by tabloid newspapers. — Lord Admiral Hill-Norton, Former Chief of Defence Staff, 5 Star Admiral of the Royal Navy, Chairman of the NATO Military Committee (source)
Russian Mars probe was downed by aliens - OFFICIAL
Witness testimony when it comes to ‘credibility’ is not really seen as a good source of information within the mainstream world, except when it fits into the accepted view of reality, or the reality that’s given to us by the global elite. At this point, it’s not hard to see the consistent stream of lies, in almost all realms from health to politics, that’s dished out by establishment media on a regular basis. When information is presented which goes against the grain no matter how credible the source, even if it goes far beyond simple witness testimony and into hard evidence, it’s always greeted with a harsh response. We see this today with science, and findings that challenge belief systems and have paradigm-shifting implications (like non-material science).
Things, however, are changing, the collective mind is definitely opening and willing to accept the fact that there are concepts of our reality that we may have overlooked, especially towards things that don’t fit the frame.
One of these topics is intelligent extraterrestrial life. Judging by global polls alone, a large portion of the world seems to believe that we are not alone in the universe and that there is intelligent life out there, it’s not just us…
A large portion also believes that intelligent extraterrestrial life has, and could still be, visiting our planet.
Intelligent beings from other star systems have been and are visiting our planet Earth. They are variously referred to as Visitors, Others, Star People, Et’s, etc…They are visiting Earth NOW; this is not a matter of conjecture or wistful thinking. – Theodor C. Loder III, Ph.D., Professor Emeritus of Earth Sciences, University of New Hampshire (source)
When it comes to the UFO phenomenon, it’s not really taboo to discuss anymore. Dozens of governments have admitted to the existence of UFOs, they’ve released electrooptical data (radar tracking, video footage), and more. The phenomenon is real, and that really can’t be debunked or argued against. The U.S. government has also started a slow process of disclosure, having released multiple videos of their own through to the stars academy.
When it comes to the extraterrestrial hypothesis for the explanation of some of these UFOs, we have hundreds of high-ranking people from within the military, politics, aerospace, and education sector who have been telling the world that yes, some of these UFOs are indeed extraterrestrial space-craft.
There is abundant evidence that we are being contacted, that civilizations have been visiting us for a very long time… that these visitors use the technologies of consciousness, they use toroids, co-rotating magnetic disks for their propulsion systems…That seems to be a common denomantaor of the UFO phenomenon. – Dr.Brian O’leary, Former NASA Astronaut and Princeton Physics Professor. (source)
We’ve written a lot about the phenomenon, and to sift through the articles we’ve published for the past (nearly) 10 years, you can visit the disclosure section of our website. I thought it was important to briefly mention the information above.
Space is a strange place, a place we don’t know much about, and an area that seems to be dominated by Black Budget Special Access Programs (SAP’s), and Unacknowledged Special Access programs. These are programs that are so secretive that they are exempt from standard reporting requirements to Congress. This has been made clear, not only by those who have investigated black budget programs (not many, more on that in the article linked above), but also by whistle-blowers, and people like Gary Mckinnon, who performed the largest military computer hack in history, finding strange pictures of space-ships floating near the Earth, as well as a list of “off-world officers” and “fleet to fleet” transfers of materials.
So, what happened to Phobos II? Phobos II was (from what we’re told), the very last space probe designed by the Soviet Union. It was designed to explore the moons of Mars, Phobos, and Demimos. It was launched on July 12th, 1988, and entered into orbit on January 29th, 1989.
The Probe got close to the surface of Mars, investigating its surface and atmosphere as well as returning approximately 40 images. The probe was also supposed to approach Phobos within 50 meters and release two landers, but all of a sudden, the mission ended and contact with the probe was completely lost. The ‘official’ answer from NASA was that there was a malfunction onboard, but according to others, with ‘credibility,’ this is not what happened.
As Jim Mars points out in one of his books, Our Occulted History:
In mid-1991, six former U.S. Army remote viewers were commissioned by officials within the Russian space program to study the cause of Phobos II’s disappearance. Remote viewing is the term given to a controlled psychic ability that allows one to perceive persons, places, and things at a distance without the use of the normal five senses. Such techniques were studied by both academic and government scientists before the creation of a remote-viewing unit witin the U.S. Amy’s Intelligence and Security Command (INSOCOM) in the early 1970s.
Remote viewing was part of the US Government’s STARGATE program.
Anytime I mention remote viewing in an article, I always have to throw this in there from the declassified literature,
Successful replication of this type of remote viewing in independent laboratories has yielded considerable scientific evidence for the reality of the (remote viewing) phenomenon. Adding to the strength of these results was the discovery that a growing number of individuals could be found to demonstrate high-quality remote viewing, often to their own surprise. The CIA even participated as remote viewers themselves in order to critique the protocols. CIA personnel generated successful target descriptions of sufficiently high quality to permit blind matching of descriptions to targets by independent judges. (sources)
According to Mars, in 1991, the remote viewers issued a report titled “Enigma Penetration: Soviet Phobos II Space Craft Images Anomaly.” The report outlined how a disc-shaped object arose from the surface of Mars as Phobos neared, all while a second object moved even closer, scanning the probe, and then shooting some sort of, what appeared to be, a particle beam device, which disrupted the communication and guidance equipment.
This isn’t the first time a UFO has been said to shoot some sort of beam disrupting Earthly equipment, Colonel Ross Dedrickson, a high-ranking Air Force Officer who had a long stint with the US atomic energy commission provided an example in thisinterview, he also said extraterrestrial destroyed nuclear weapons that the US government wanted to detonate on the moon for scientific purposes… Here’sanother video of Professor Robert Jacobs describing another similar incident.
So, it’s not the first time we’re hearing about something like this.
Back to Phobos, according to Mars, the remote viewers said that “this may have been no accident, as it seems that all of the technology put into space from Earth is scrutinized closely by nonhumans. If it would reveal alien activities, then it is decommissioned. After being struck, Phobos II spiralled down crashing onto the Martian surface.
The remote viewers aren’t the only ones who spoke of such an incident. In 1991, a retired Soviet Air Force colonel and cosmonaut trainee named Marina Popovic, pictured belw on the far right, expressed that one of the last photographs received by the Russians from Phobos II showed “the silhouette of an odd-shaped object approaching the spacecraft.” Popovich said the picture was taken on March 25th, 1989, in deep space near Phobos (moon of Mars) shortly before contact with the craft was lost. She said the object very well may have been an alien spacecraft.” Her belief that this happened was also poorly expressed by the New York Times.
She is holding the photo below.
Why would she be lying? Especially when she is one of dozens of global astronauts to confirm the existence of “UFOs”, and some have confirmed the extraterrestrial hypothesis.
Alexander Dunayev, chairman of the Society Space organization responsible for the Phobos II project, said that “the doomed probe had photographed the image of a small odd-shaped object between itself and Mars. He speculated that the object might have been “debris in the orbit of Phobos” or even jettisoned parts from the spacecraft. His tone was anything but certain.
Here’s another picture:
What’s most intriguing about this story is that the photograph drawn by the remote viewers matched the description of the disc above, which is something that was quite common in the remote viewing program. Again, it had an extremely high success rate, with viewers able to peer into secret Russian military bases and describe weapons facilities, naval facilities and more. They even used the program to locate a lost spy plane in Africa. There are multiple examples found within the declassified literature, and even more from the participants from within that program, like Ingo Swann, Pat Price, Joseph McMoneagle, Paul Smith, and many more.
The military-trained remote viewers, however, said they saw Mars Observer meeting the same fat as Phobos II as well as other, secret space launch that same moe month in 1993. They noted the similarity of fates between the Phobos missions and Mars observer. This pattern may have continued in another failed Russian attempt to probe the secrets of Phobos. In the fall of 2011, control over Phobos Grunt (literally, Phobos Soil) was lost, and fears grew that its ten-ton load of toxic fuel and oxidizer might wreak havoc when the failed craft reentered Earth’s atmosphere. The stricken craft reportedly crashed into the Pacific Ocean on Sunday, January 15th, 2012, with no reported consequence. Why would all these probes be failing? Could it be that something on Mars doesn’t want us observing the planet? One thing seems clear – someone or something continues to operate far outside Earth. (Our Occulted History)
I’ll leave you with this interview, where Buzz Aldrin said that there is a “monolith” on the moon of Mars.
Debbie Jordan-Kauble, describing what's known to Ufologists as "The Copley Woods" encounter. It's one of many supposed encounters that have happened for a very long time. She describes her strange experience in the video below.
All of this information is emerging into the mainstream. All of the people who have had these types of experiences should not be labelled as 'crazy.' Many of them are clearly 'sane' and have had what appear to be genuine contact experiences.
It’s almost 2019, and we now have statements about ET encounters from many credible people who’ve held some of the highest security clearances and positions within the intelligence/military communities. It’s overwhelming sometimes, with hundreds of them from all over the world continuing to speak out about a supposed extraterrestrial presence that is and has been engaging this planet and the human race for a very long time. UFOs are finally accepted within the “mainstream,” and it doesn’t really seem too taboo anymore to talk about them. But when it comes to the extraterrestrial hypothesis, there is not the same level of mainstream acceptance.
Mainstream media outlets have been nothing but mouthpieces for the establishment, one that has a long track record of ‘fake news,’ disinformation and downright deception. Caution and critical thinking should always be exercised in tuning in to them. They are always using topics for ulterior motives, and it’s hard to take anything they say seriously, especially with regards to UFOs. You can read more about my thoughts regarding mainstream UFO disclosure in the article linked below.
That being said, there are many people around the world who have had what seems to be genuine contact experiences with ‘otherworldy’ beings, for lack of a better word. These could be visits with what we call extraterrestrials, they could also be extra-dimensional experiences as well. There is still so much to comprehend and probably so much we would have no way of perceiving, perhaps similar to an intelligent human trying to communicate what they know to an intelligent wasp or bee, for example.
These contact experiences have existed within the lore of UFOlogy for ages, dating back thousands of years and embedded in the stories of Ancient Babylon, within indigenous cultures throughout the world and all the way up to the present day. What’s interesting is that it’s a topic that continues to gain more credibility, but there are many people out there who’ve had what seem to be genuine experiences that I’ve been completely ridiculed for sharing. Many of these experiences come with physical evidence, and an entire host of other factors and correlations that, for someone who has done the research, make it nearly impossible to deny.
“Yes, it’s both. It’s both literally, physically happening to a degree; and it’s also some kind of psychological, spiritual experience occurring and originating perhaps in another dimension. And so the phenomenon stretches us, or it askes us to stretch to open to realities that are not simply the literal physical wold, but to extend to the possibility that there are other unseen realities from which our consciousness, our, if you will, learning processes over the past several hundred years have closed us off.” Dr. John Mack (source)
The Case Of 60 Zimbabwe Students
One interesting case Mack investigated was one where approximately 60 young elementary school students and school staff in Zimbabwe witnesses a large craft and what appeared to be “alien beings.” Some of the children still speak of the experience today; they were implanted with visions of the destruction of Earth by humans, something many contactees have experienced, visions of forest fires and oceans smothering major cities.
The list of such cases is long; those who choose to dive into it can travel down a virtually endless rabbit hole. One thing is certain: the time has long past where people should be worried to speak openly about their experiences for fear of being ridiculed or labelled as mentally ill.
You can read more about this case in more detail here.
The Copley Woods Encounter
Below is a clip from a woman named Debbie Jordan-Kauble, describing what’s known to Ufologists as “The Copley Woods” encounter. She eventually ended up with the late Bud Hopkins, because he was one of the few who took her seriously. He is one of the world’s most prominent abductee researchers in the field. If you’re interested in the phenomena I suggest you look him up. He wrote a book about this specific encounter.
They are at various spots in the yard. At the same time, they all seemed to line up and slide to the left, back to this egg shaped thing in front of me. They were smaller than me. Shorter. I thought they looked like children. Bullet-shaped children. Bigger in the head and getting narrow at the feet. I couldn’t see much detail, mostly just silhouettes.
It’s a very fascinating story, listen below!

The 20 Weirdest Aliens in the Marvel Universe - PART I
The 20 Weirdest Aliens in the Marvel Universe - PART I

0. Marvel Aliens
When "Guardians of the Galaxy" opened in theaters in 2014, it marked a distinct tonal shift in the way Marvel told its stories on the silver screen. Gone were the brooding heroes struggling to cope with the crushing onus of destiny. In their place, we got a motley crew of misfits and mercenaries who were humanoid, if not entirely human.
With Peter Quill (aka Star-Lord) as the sole Earthling lead among a polychromatic cast, the Marvel Cinematic Universe opened itself to a cosmos of possibilities. Even then, the movie studio has only begun to scratch the surface. From household names like Rocket Raccoon and Groot to the boozy aliens known as the Ciegrimites, here are 20 of the strangest species Marvel has to offer.

1. Rocket Raccoon
A member of the Guardians, Rocket is a genetically and cybernetically engineered raccoon from the planet Halfworld. He cracks wise, totes guns, pilots ships and conceals a heart of gold underneath his prickly exterior. Together with Groot, a sentient, ambulatory tree, he roamed the galaxy picking up bounties until Star-Lord recruited him to help him sell an orb containing an Infinity Stone to Taneleer Tivan, also known as the Collector.

The aforementioned tree, Groot is a Flora colossus from Planet X. Despite being a timber of few words—"I am Groot" is his sole refrain—Groot is an expert inquasi-dimensional super-positional engineering. Near the end of the first movie, Groot sacrifices himself to save the lives of his new friends, but Rocket saves a sprig, which is seen sprouting into a Baby Groot in a post-credits scene.

Dubbed the "most dangerous woman in the whole galaxy," Gamora is a green-skinned Zen-Whoberi who was adopted by Thanos the Mad Titan as a child and raised to be a ruthless assassin. At least, until she betrays him in the first movie by stealing the orb and attempting to pawn it off to the Collector. When Ronan the Accuser makes off with the orb, Gamora makes a last stand with her fellow Guardians to reclaim it.

4. Yondu Udonta
Yondu Udonta may not technically be Star-Lord's father, but he's probably the closest thing he has to one, even if the Centaurian space pirate was responsible for kidnapping young Peter Quill in the first place. In the comics, Yondu is depicted with blue skin and a large red mohawk-like fin on his head. He's able to control arrows made from yaka, a sound-sensitive metal found only on his planet, by whistling.

5. Howard the Duck
Howard the Duck, an anthropomorphic, well, duck, from Duckworld makes a cameo in a post-credit scene in the first "Guardians of the Galaxy, but he's probably best known for his widely panned foray into film in 1986. How he wound up among the Collector's exhibits remains a mystery, but his comic-book counterpart found himself in the middle of the Florida Everglades after a demon known as Thog the Nether-Spawn used his magic to tilt the interdimensional cosmic axis.

Ego the Living Planetis a member of a god-like race known as the Celestials. An intelligent, self-aware planet that feasts on unsuspecting interplanetary travelers, Ego possesses a brain-like organ, a digestive tract and an immune system that can dispatch antibody-esque beings to fend off intruders. Besides its ability to shape its terrain at will — it frequently manifests a giant face when speaking to others — Ego can also spawn humanoid avatars if it so chooses.

Eschewing her human comic-book origins in favor of a more extraterrestrial one, the cinematic Mantis is an alien with antennas who uses touch to experience the feelings of others. She can also use her powers to manipulate emotions or induce sleep.

8. The Collector
Taneleer Tivan, better known as the Collector, only looks like Benicio del Toro, at least in the movies. In reality, he's a powerful alien billions of years old and virtually immortal. To occupy his time, Taneleer began scouring the universe for artifacts and life-forms he found rare, valuable or interesting, enough to fill up about 10 museum-worlds.

9. Phoenix Force
Immortal, indestructible, and one of the oldest cosmic entities in the universe, the Phoenix Force is described in the comics as the "embodiment of the very passion of Creation — the spark that gave life to the Universe, the flame that will ultimately consume it." It famously transformed Jean Grey of the X-Men into Phoenix, and later, Dark Phoenix, who inadvertently destroys a planet of 5 billion people after exhausting the energy of a nearby star.

A member of the Inhuman Royal Family, Lockjaw resembles a giant bulldog with a two-pronged antenna on its forehead. Whether he's an Inhuman dog or an Inhuman who just looks like a dog is unclear, but Lockjaw can teleport himself — and up to a dozen people — across incalculable distances and dimensions.

Brought to Earth by Spider-Man, Venom bonded with the web slinger for a time as a black suit before going on to possess Eddie Brock, Deadpool and Flash Thompson, among others. It hails from a race of extraterrestrial parasites known as Symbiotes, which endow their hosts with extraordinary physical abilities in order to feed off their adrenaline.

Galactus, the "devourer of worlds," emerged from the death of a previous universe. Likely the most powerful character in Marvel's pantheon, he maintains his near-omnipotent powers by consuming the life energies of entire worlds.

13. Silver Surfer
The Silver Surfer is exactly that: a surfboard-riding humanoid clad in metallic skin. As one of Galactus' "heralds," he coasts through interstellar space and hyperspace, seeking planets for Galactus to devour.

14. No-Name of the Brood
No-Name is a member of a species of parasitic insectoids known as the Brood, which scour the galaxy to find hosts for the spawn. A gladiator on the planet Sakaar, where she meets the Hulk, No-Name is characterized by her fangs, wings and a giant stinging tail.

Depicted with green skin, pointy ears and furrowed chins, the Skrulls are warlike aliens who can take on the appearance of almost any form, organic and inorganic. Besides being masters of infiltration, they can also use their abilities to sprout weapons from their bodies, making them formidable combatants as well.

16. The Dire Wraiths
The Dire Wraiths are a branch of Skrulls that evolved into their own distinct species. Like their distant relatives, the Dire Wraiths can also shape-shift. Through vaguely humanoid in shape, their true forms include red or orange skin, small beaks, pincer-like limbs and long, spike-tipped tongues, which they use to suck out the brains of their prey.

17. The Phalanx
Similar to the Borg in "Star Trek," the Phalanx is a cybernetic species that shares a hive mind. Phalanx result when organic life-forms are infected with the Transmode virus by the Technarchy, a techno-organic race with shape-shifting powers.

18. The Badoon
The reptilian-like Badoon consist of two factions split across gender lines: the militaristic Brotherhood of the Badoon, who live on the planet Moord, and the more pacifist Sisterhood of the Badoon, who dwell on Lotiara.

The Druffs are short-statured creatures that reproduce asexually and possess a childlike intelligence and timidity. Considered pests by the Skrulls, Druff populations are routinely culled. The fuzz-covered aliens have managed to proliferate on other worlds, however, by stowing away aboard various starships.

Resembling upright snails, the Ciegrimites have eyes on stalks and a carapace that wraps around their backs and torsos. They're described as capitalistic, hedonistic and particularly talented in the art of making alcohol, which they use to barter for technology.
STICHTING SKEPSIS HEEFT HET NIET ZO OP BUITENAARDS LEVEN ( VIDEO )
STICHTING SKEPSIS HEEFT HET NIET ZO OP BUITENAARDS LEVEN ( VIDEO )
Het is moeilijk om je een buitenaardse beschaving voor te stellen die bereid is gigantische investeringen te doen om de aarde te bezoeken, zonder officieel contact te willen leggen noch winstoogmerk.
Dat is wat men zegt bij stichting Skepsis, maar misschien toch hoog tijd dat ze die mening enigszins bijstellen.
Toen wij in een eerdere publicatie Stichting Skepsis een verlengstuk van de overheid noemden, reageerden ze als door een wesp gestoken.
Het ging om dit artikel waarin een burger een UFO melding doet bij 112 en vervolgens wordt teruggebeld door een medewerker van Skepsis.
Stichting Skepsis dacht er het volgende van:
Het getuigt van hysterische vooringenomenheid en ziekelijke achterdocht van de kant van Niburu wanneer ze hier een grootschalige en kwaadaardige samenzwering ontwaren – een samenzwering tussen alarmcentrales, politiekorpsen, inlichtingendiensten en de Stichting Skepsis.
Tja, dat is dezelfde stichting die zegt geen enkele bemoeienis te hebben met de overheid, maar die wel met overheidsgeld in het leven is geroepen:
Skepsis heeft de eerste vier jaar van haar bestaan een startsubsidie van de overheid (de Stichting Publiek, Wetenschap en Techniek, PWT)
Waarschijnlijk ontbreekt het woord “ontvangen”, maar een kniesoor die daar op let. Wij, en waarheidszoekers in het algemeen, krijgen geen overheidssubsidies, maar dat berust op louter toeval en daar mag niets achter worden gezocht.
Het is ook deze zelfde stichting die nu nog steeds amalgaamvullingen op haar website promoot als duurzaam en veilig.
Het is ook de stichting die als taak heeft te proberen de mensheid zoveel mogelijk te laten stoppen met zelf nadenken en zonder morren de gangbare wetenschappelijke theorieën te laten accepteren. De overheid en de door de grote industrieën betaalde wetenschap weten tenslotte wat goed is voor de burger.
Zo hebben ze bij Skepsis uiteraard ook een mening over het ontstaan van de mensheid en buitenaards leven. De arrogantie van Skepsis kent geen grenzen, getuige het volgende stuk op hun website:
Wereldwijd zijn er iedere dag vele ufowaarnemingen en met regelmaat verschijnen meldingen van mensen die buitenaardse wezens hebben waargenomen of er zelfs door zijn ontvoerd. Aangezien er volgens officiële organisaties nooit een dode of levende alien is gevonden, moeten we op onbevestigde observaties vertrouwen om ons een beeld van de wezens te vormen. Het is moeilijk om je een buitenaardse beschaving voor te stellen die bereid is gigantische investeringen te doen om de aarde te bezoeken, zonder officieel contact te willen leggen en zonder winstoogmerk. Nog vreemder is het dat deze wezens, al hun superieure kennis ten spijt, vaak in betrekkelijk simpele ruimtevoertuigen reizen, regelmatig betrapt worden en dan ook nog eens sterk op ons lijken.
Zonder bewijsmateriaal voorhanden, maar open voor iedere claim, kunnen we alleen maar meedenken over het bestaan van buitenaardse bezoekers en daar waar mogelijk is de waarnemingen met logica en wetenschappelijke kennis ondersteunen. Helaas! Tenzij het leven op aarde het resultaat is van intelligent design, is de kans dat zoveel waargenomen ruimtewezens op mensen lijken, nihil. Maar ook intelligent design biedt geen goede verklaring voor de toevalligheden die het leven op aarde gemaakt hebben zoals wij het nu kennen. Als we terugkijken naar hoe het leven zich heeft ontwikkeld, dan had het proces volgens alle bekende chemische regels en biologische wetten ook heel anders kunnen verlopen. Een ander oersoeprecept had wellicht een prima functionerend zelfreplicerend molecuul opgeleverd, met een andere structuur en samenstelling, maar met dezelfde genetische functies als DNA. Als de Proterozoïsche ijstijden hadden aangehouden, had leven zich alleen diep in de oceanen kunnen afspelen. Als door een toevallige botsing met een meteoriet de dinosauriërs niet waren uitgestorven, hadden zoogdieren zich nooit ontwikkeld tot de dominerende klasse.
Als antwoord op deze overheidspropaganda volgt hierna een zeer verhelderende video. Deze duurt 22 minuten en gedurende die 22 minuten krijg je een scala aan wetenschappelijk onderbouwde feiten te horen en te zien.
Aan het einde is er slechts één conclusie mogelijk en dat die haaks staat op die van de stichting Skepsis zal niemand verbazen:
Als je aanneemt dat de maan echt is, kom je uiteraard weer op de aloude vraag terecht of wij daar nu wel geweest zijn of niet en tenslotte is er nog de vraag of er misschien buitenaardse wezens actief zijn op de maan of dat de machthebbers daar een aantal geheime locaties hebben.
Op 18 mei vond de lancering plaats van de vierde bemande ruimtevlucht naar de maan onder de naam Apollo 10. Hier werd het testen van de maanlander uitgevoerd ter voorbereiding van de eerste vlucht naar de maan, Apollo 11, waar daadwerkelijk mensen op de maan zouden worden gezet. Wat ook gebeurde volgens de mainstream kanalen en zij die geloven dat wij mensen op de maan zijn geweest.
Er is nog zoveel dat we niet weten over de maan, ongeacht of wij er wel of niet zijn geweest, maar daar begint nu toch een beetje verandering in te komen.
Wat te denken van de volgende opname:
Hier is duidelijk een gebouw op de maan te zien en deze foto is eveneens afkomstig van NASA en het betreft hier een wat men noemt gerestaureerde foto.
In de video hierna zie je voorbeelden van het werk van een aantal mensen die druk zijn met het bestuderen van het maanoppervlak en de vele bijzonderheden die ze daar ontdekken. De man die bovenstaande foto weer zichtbaar heeft gemaakt, heeft nog veel meer dingen ontdekt en claimt dat er zich complete steden op de maan bevinden. Iets waar wij eerder over schreven.
Dat de maan en wat daar nu wel of niet gebeurt iets is dat leeft onder de lezers, blijkt onder andere uit het volgende wat een lezer schrijft (dank!):
Ik heb op YouTube een zeer interessante lezing gezien over de vraag of de maanlandingen echt waren of niet, met als duidelijke conclusie dat alles fake was.
Op mijn Facebookpagina heb ik geschreven:
The only "rock from the moon" ever scientifically investigated, in the Netherlands (!), turned out to contain a petrified piece of wood! 100% proof that the photos taken on the moon are fake. Very convincing evidence. At 1:22:27 "I find it fascinating how so many people can be manipulated to believe something which, when you get the evidence together, is quite evidently fake. [...] It is easier to fool people than it is to persuade them that they had been fooled."
Hier is de video:
Ik heb zelf eigenlijk lang getwijfeld over de vraag of de maanlandingen wel of niet echt gebeurd zijn. Ik weet het nog als de dag van gister dat ik samen met mijn vader en moeder en broer voor de televisie zat toen de eerste man voet op de maan zette. De filmopnames gemaakt op de maan zijn de duurste filmopnames uit de geschiedenis van de mensheid, en NASA beweert keihard dat de oorspronkelijke opnames verloren gegaan zouden zijn, hetgeen natuurlijk volstrekt ongeloofwaardig is. Er moeten dingen op de oorspronkelijke filmopnames staan die het daglicht niet kunnen verdragen. Ik heb altijd twee mogelijkheden open gehouden: misschien zijn er buitenaardse ruimteschepen gefilmd, of misschien hebben de maanlandingen nooit plaats gevonden. Na het zien van deze lezing kies ik toch voor optie 2.
Misschien zouden jullie nu of in de toekomst nog een keertje aandacht kunnen geven aan de maanlandingen? Ik vind het in ieder geval een interessant onderwerp. De spreker haalt dus ook de Nederlandse maansteen aan, al duizenden keren gefotografeerd door bezoekers. En nu blijkt er dus versteend hout in te zitten! Tenzij er bomen op de maan hebben gestaan, bewijst het dat de door NASA aan Nederland afgegeven steen helemaal niet van de maan afkomstig was!
This week, our global UFO trek takes us to Denmark, and to Pia Knudsen. Pia has had an interest in UFOs since a childhood sighting in British Columbia, Canada. In 2009 Pia co-founded Exopoltics Denmark, which now operates as UFO Denmark. Pia has been interviewed on national radio and for the National Geographic channel; she has written articles on the UFO topic and lectured in both the UK and Norway. In her current role as director of UFO Denmark, Pia says that she “strives to make the best research and documentation available for the Danish public.”
Pia Knudsen, director of UFO Denmark.
RG: Who have been the defining figures in Danish UFOlogy over the past 70 years (for better or for worse), and why?
PK: Major H. C. Petersen was a pioneer in Danish ufology, founding the first nationwide ufo group, Scandinavian UFO Information (SUFOI), in 1957.
As a captain lieutenant in 1952, Hans Christian Petersen was sent to Wright Patterson Airforce base in Ohio for training. During his stay, Petersen became astonished to learn that the Americans took the UFO topic seriously. Project Blue Book had headquarters at the base and the young officer became convinced that UFOs were real. In the mid 1950s, Petersen had his own UFO radar sighting at Skydstrup Airforce base, which fuelled a lifelong interest in UFOs. Due to disagreements regarding George Adamski, H. C. Peterson left the SUOFI group in 1965 and went on to create a second group, IGAP (International Get Acquainted Program) to promote Adamski’s tecahings. Both UFO groups still exist. While the SUOFOI group has become increasingly skeptical of the topic and refers to UFOs as a myth with earthly explanations for all sightings, the IGAP group is slowly diminishing and now has very few members. H. C. Petersen passed away in 2013.
Hans Christian Petersen, a pioneer of Danish Ufology who passed away in 2013.
Early Danish UFO groups include UFO-Fyn, DISC and Nordisk UFO Organisation. FUFOS (Frederiksberg UFO Studygroup) had quite a following in the 1970s, promoting not only UFOs but a mix of topics. The group eventually changed its name and focus; it seldom focusses on UFOs nowadays.
In 2009 I co-founded the Exopolitics Denmark group, focussing on political and environmental activism surrounding UFOs. Each year we invite leading researchers to Denmark. In 2014, you [Robbie Graham] joined George Knapp and Terje Toftenes in Copenhagen to speak about UFOs and the media. Other speakers have included Richard Dolan, Robert Hastings, Timothy Good, Suzy Hansen, Gary Heseltine, Jeremey Corbell, Mary Rodwell, Steven Bassett, A. J. Gevaerd and more. In May 2018, Grant Cameron visited both Copenhagen and Kolding.
In late-2017, Exopolitics Denmark voted to change its name to UFO Denmark. We now have a broader focus to create debate and provide information surrounding the UFO topic.
RG: What do you consider to be the most compelling Danish UFO incident on record, and why?
PK: Police officer Evald Maarup Hansen twice spotted a UFO above his police car on a romote country road in 1970, and again in 1973. Both the car and police radio shut down during the event, but Evald Maarup managed to take three pictures of object. He reluctenly spoke about the event after collegues had contacted the media. In 2010 I located a radar operator, Nis Krog, who had been on duty at the nearby Skydstrup Airforce Base and had seen an unidentified object on his radar at the time and in the area Maarup had his encounter. This case was included in a National Geographic documentary I worked on in 2013 and Nis Krog went public for the first time confirming his radar observations.
RG: What is the Danish government’s official stance on UFOs? When was the last time it issued a statement on the subject?
PK: The Danish airforce released their UFO files in january 2009. There was a big hype in the press. The airforce stated that they had collected 15,000 files since the mid fifties but in fact only released 228 cases on the day. They claimed all files from before 1978 had gone missing. On average, 250 cases were rapported each year, so I estimate that 7,500 cases should have been released in 2009. No members of the press or the SUFOI UFO group questioned why so few cases were released. The airforce’s offical website recommends all new incoming cases be reported to the SUFOI group. I have done much more research into the file release and have an article on the subject. The governement no longer comments on the topic.
RG: Has the Danish government shown more or less transparency on the UFO subject than the US and British governments?
PK: Early on, in the late 1950s the airforce were quite open and even defended Major H. C. Petersen’s right to have a hobby studying UFOs when questioned about his abilty to work as an airforce officer. Since the 1970s the airforce has become much less open regarding UFOs and, since 2009, no longer comments on the subject.
The Danish Ministry of Defence building. The Danish Air Force released some of its UFO files in 2009.
RG: What is the role of your organisation, UFO Denmark (previously Exopolitics Denmark)?
PK: UFO Denmark does not collect UFO reports or do field work. Our role is to create a platform for information and debate. Some indiviuals in our group do independent research and we provide an email address so people can share their sightings.
RG: How many smaller Danish UFO groups or organisations are you aware of?
PK: There is one small UFO group and others who organize CE-5 events. Nowadays social media plays a key role in connecting peole who seek information. UFO Denmark is the only group organizing events and inviting reseachers to speak.
Copenhagen, Denmark on the Nyhavn Canal.
RG: What are the most active regions of Denmark for UFO sighting reports (hotspots)?
PK: I am not aware of any hotspots at the moment. Sightings seem to be spread equally across the country. Very rarely do people see disc-shaped UFOs; it is mainly orbs being reported. There seems to be an increase in contact cases.
RG: Have you personally had any UFO sightings?
PK: Yes, I have had three sightings. I had my first in 1971, together with four other people. It was a daytime sighting of a silver disc (approx. 30 meters away and 40-50 metres in the air). This happened in Surrey, B.C., Canada.
In 2012, together with Gary Heseltine and my Norweigan friend Ann, I had a sighting of a large white glowing orb close to Bergen in Norway.
My last sighting happened in Denmark in 2016 at my summer cottage on the outskirts of Copenhagen. My husband and I saw five white orbs, the size of a frisbee, flying silently opposite the wind pass by our house. I managed to take six pictures (the camera elongated the orb, but it was completly round. You can see the flagpole in the picture).
Photo taken by Pia Knudsen of one of five luminous orbs sighted in the presence of her husband in 2016 near Copenhagen, Denmark.
RG: How long have you been involved in the UFO subject; roughly how many cases have you personally investigated; and what conclusions, if any, have you drawn about the underlying nature of UFO phenomena?
PK: Since my first sighting at the age of 10, and also hearing about my mother’s sightings, I’ve been intrigued by the subject. I have seriously studyed the topic for the past 15 years, and since 2009 together with UFO Denmark members. I have investigated very few cases in a nuts and bolts fashion, but many have shared their experiences with me. The brightest minds in this field have not been able to conclude much about the nature of the phenomena and nor can I, but I do agree that it is much much more than just lights in the sky.
As you may have seen, last week I wrote three articles here at Mysterious Universe on the involvement in the UFO subject of the U.K. Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ). It’s the U.K.’s equivalent of the United States’ National Security Agency (NSA). You can find the three articles at these links: one, two and three. It’s worth noting, though, that there are more than a few agencies of government in the United Kingdom that have been involved in the investigation of (a) UFOs and (b) those involved in the subject, whether researchers or eyewitnesses.
Nick Pope is someone who is well known to many people in Ufology. Between 1991 and 1994 he handled UFO reports for a body within the U.K.’s Ministry of Defense (MoD). When Pope’s first book was published (Open Skies, Closes Minds – in 1996) his publicist billed him as “the Real Fox Mulder.” Well, no, he wasn’t. Pope – when he was working in a branch of the MoD called Secretariat (Air Staff) 2a – told me that: “There is no specific ‘UFO budget,’ except the staff costs, i.e. around 20 % of my salary, together with a tiny percentage of some other salaries, reflecting my line management’s supervisory role.”
The Freedom of Information Act has shown that when Pope received letters or calls from people who may have seen UFOs, it was the job of Secretariat (Air Staff) 2a to forward the reports onto the Defense Intelligence Staff (DIS) and it was the DIS that did the work to determine if the witnesses had seen satellites, aircraft, etc. Their evaluation would then be shared with Secretariat (Air Staff) 2a, who would reply to the caller/letter-writer who wanted answers regarding what they had seen. Notably, too, there was no budget for Pope to travel around the country to investigate cases. It was all done from within the MoD Main Building. So, we have an office that investigated UFOs in the MoD, but which had a budget of only 20 percent of Pope’s salary, plus a “tiny percentage” of funding from “some other salaries.” On top of that, the work was actually done by the far more secret DIS, and Pope never had the ability or the funding to hit the road to investigate even a single case in that 1991-1994 period.
As my earlier articles showed, this is very much at odds with what GCHQ was doing in regards to UFOs. They were intercepting military messages concerning UFOs, investigating cases, keeping Robin Cole under surveillance, and working with the U.K. Police’s Special Branch. On the matter of Special Branch, they opened files on George King and his Aetherius Society in the late 1950s, specifically because of the society’s stance on atomic weapons. Now-declassified files on the Aetherius Society show that Special Branch sat in on lectures given by the society and hung around in the crowds when George King and his followers were expressing their views on atomic weapons at various locations in London. Here, then, is an example of how Special Branch personnel were given funding to investigate UFO-connected issues, and to hang out at Aetherius Society meetings and prepare reports. There is also a Special Branch file on Matthew Williams, the first man in the U.K. to be arrested, charged and fined for making a Crop Circle (the actual charge was criminal damage).
Moving on, there is the matter of what used to be the U.K.’s Provost and Security Services, an arm of the British Royal Air Force that got involved in matters relative to national security and counter-intelligence. When we once again turn our attentions to the U.K.’s Freedom of Information Act, we find that in the 1960s, the P&SS were very active in visiting UFO witnesses to UFO activity. The 1960s equivalent of the office that Nick Pope worked in played no role in any of those visits. In February 1962, the P&SS was involved in the investigation of a “UFO/vehicle interference” case in Aston Clinton, Buckinghamshire, England. It was in the early hours of February 16 when Ronald Wildman encountered a Flying Saucer-type craft that affected the lights and engine of his vehicle. A P&SS team was soon on the scene – and a file was quickly created.
P&SS personnel were also quickly on the scene when Anne Leamon saw a strange light (strange in the sense that it seemed to hover, reverse and move in ways that a regular aircraft could not) over the hills near her Taunton, Somerset, England home. Anne contacted the Air Ministry and was amazed when a Sergeant J.S. Scott of the P&SS turned up on the doorstep one night – and returned on several, subsequent nights. He suggested to Anne that she not discuss the encounter outside of her family. The P&SS were also involved when, in November 1966, a woman named Diane Foulkes encountered a low-flying UFO at Great Ness, England. The object had adverse effects on the engine and the lights of her vehicle. And, she felt “very ill” and traumatized. Once again, the P&SS opened a detailed file.
What all of this tells us is that various agencies, offices and bodies in the U.K. have had deep involvement in the UFO subject: GCHQ, Special Branch, the P&SS, and the Defense Intelligence Staff. All of them seemed to have had significant funding – and the ability to travel around the country – to carry out research into notable cases. Ironically, the publicly visible office that Nick Pope worked in had no budget to allow for travel, no budget to interview witnesses, and no budget to keep a watch on controversial figures in Ufology.
If you’re a fan of Spielberg-flavored sci-fi entertainment (kids chasing aliens around their neighbourhood while being pursued by spoilsport authorities and all that jazz), you may want to seek out a new movie written and directed by Alexander Murillo.
The movie, Watch the Sky, is based on the graphic novel of the same name and was released on August 21 of this year through iTunes, Amazon Instant, Google Play, Xbox, Vudu, Fandango, and On Demand through local cable/satellite providers.
The synopsis reads as follows:
“It all began with a simple question: it’s just one balloon in the entire sky, what’s the worst that can happen? In an effort to capture amateur video of outer space, two young brothers unexpectedly find themselves in harm’s way when an innocent Science experiment becomes a day filled with unearthly events threatening their sleepy coastal town.”
Co-President of distributor Breaking Glass Pictures, Richard Ross told BroadwayWorld.com:
“Murillo does a wonderful job capturing the ‘awe and wonder’ innocence of two brothers in a small coastal town, when they find themselves in the middle of an alien sighting. This is an engaging family-friendly film, with a tip of the hat to Spielberg.”
A number of movies in recent years have sought –with varying degrees of success– to recapture and pay homage to the magic of Spielberg’s sci-fi productions of the 1970s and 1980s, most notably J.J. Abrams’ Super 8 (2011), Dave Green’s Earth to Echo (2014), and Jeff Nichols’ Midnight Special (2016).
Watch the Sky (title surely inspired by dialogue from Spielberg’s Close Encounters: “… Okay, watch the skies please…”, or by the working title for Spielberg’s abandoned movie based on the Kelly-Hopkinsville UFO case from 1955) is produced by Renée O’Connor (of Xena: Warrior Princess fame) and Jed Sura. It stars J. Nicole Brooks (Chicago Med), Luke Albright (Devil’s Pass), Christopher Corbin (Jane the Virgin), Amie Farrell (American Sniper), Miracle Laurie (Dollhouse), and Carol Mansell (Desperate Housewives).
Could this be the year that the Loch Ness monster is found? Is something stirring up the loch and forcing it to surface more frequently? Could that DNA testing experiment have spooked it … or was the experiment a cover for placing something in the loch to bring Nessie out of its lair? These rumors and more are flying after monster sightings were reported at the same location within 12 hours of each other … sightings that include one of the “best photos ever” (according to a local expert) and bring the 2018 total to seven, with another still under study.
The magic Nessie day was August 17th. According to The Scottish Sun, Lynn Locke of Ontario, Canada, was at the loch for a vacation with her husband and daughter. Standing 50 yards from the water at about 9:40 am near Urquhart Castle, a popular spot for spotting the monster, Lynn was ready to see something after seeing nothing on a Ness cruise. Noticing a strange abject 50 yards off shore, Locke locked onto the loch with her smartphone for a minute and recorded … something. (See the photos here.)
Lynn’s pic has now been officially logged
Lynn spotted the object
A young girl took this picture of what could be the Loch Ness Monster on the first day of her holiday
“While we were visiting the castle I noticed something moving in the water, with trails of bubbles leading up to it. It went under the water a couple of times and reappeared.”
Before you say it, Lynn already knows what you’re thinking.
“I do think I saw Nessie – maybe the tail. I’ve seen a stick floating in the water before and that didn’t look like one to me.”
It doesn’t look like a boat.
Well, that plus the photos was enough for Gary Campbell, keeper of the official Nessie sightings register, to enter Lynn’s account into the official log. Little did he know that this would turn out to be one of the biggest days in that log’s history. At around 7 pm, Charlotte Robinson saw something just 12 miles away and only 15 yards from the shore and snapped her “best ever” photo which was also logged in the log. Still waiting for approval is what Campbell described as a similar sighting the day before – perhaps the owners of the photo, if one was taken, are holding out for the highest bidder, rather than taking their chances on the Inverness Courier’s Loch Ness Monster monster photo contest with its $2000 prize.
Gary Campbell, keeper of the official Nessie sightings register, hasn’t seen this much activity since … well, since last year, which had a record number of sightings – 11. This year’s are different because they’re so close together in times and locations. Meanwhile, the DNA collectors have collected their DNA, but don’t plan to release their findings until January 2019. Would they release them sooner if someone gets a conclusive photo? WILL someone get a conclusive photo? Anyone? Bueller?
Whatever they are, sightings in Loch Ness are up — two years in a row. The local tourism bureau and Inverness businesses are certainly reaping the benefits. Are they also floating the logs?
The site attracts hundreds of visitors a year and Mr Jaisli decided to build it when he claims he received a “telepathic message” from extraterrestrials in which they told him they needed a place to land when they arrive at our planet.
He told Argentine newspaper El Tribuno: “I was in Fuerte Alto with my neighbor Luis. It was midnight on November 24, 2008.
“'It's a UFO night,' I said to Luis. And the sentence was not over, when two luminous objects advanced about 200 meters above the Calchaquí River.
“They were solid, circular and like burnished metal. I do not know why, but mentally I asked them to come closer. And they did it!
“They were solid, circular and like burnished metal." (Image: GETTY)
“They landed about 100 metres above our heads and projected on us a beam of light that made us both see their own brightness.
“The funny thing is that it did not affect our vision. Something began to bubble through my brain: it was an order.
“They asked me telepathically to build the airport.”
After supposedly receiving the message in 2008, Mr Jaisli immediately got to work in constructing the star which has 36 points and measures 48 metres in diameter.
“Anyone see the strange purple lights over Tameside earlier? UFO invasion?”
Concerned Twitter user
Another took to Twitter to ask: “Anyone see the strange purple lights over Tameside earlier? UFOinvasion?”
Many suggested the lights were part of the Pride Festival celebrations in Manchester city centre on Monday evening.
But some appeared convinced it could be coming from a drone, a larger aircraft – or even an alien spaceship.
However a more sensible reason for the phenomenon has been offered.
WTF: An other-worldly 'pulsating' glow appeared to hover over Greater Manchester
FEARS: The strange phenomena sparked concerns of an extra-terrestrial invasion
Dozens of Facebook users said the lights looked similar to those on a specialist railwork repairs train, which was seen flashing similar powerful blue lights in southern areas of the UK earlier this year.
A spokesperson for Network Rail said: “We can confirm this was not an unidentified flying object (UFO). It was rather an identified non-flying object (INFO) – namely a railway ballast tamping machine, which uses lasers.”
It was reportedly working to pack ballast under the railway tracks to make them more hardy.
Network Rail is carrying out improvement works on the Manchester to Preston line, via Bolton, as part of a multi-million pound project.
Written byMarcus LowthEstimated Reading Time: 10 minutes
In October 1974, with another harsh Wyoming winter on the way and with food prices rising higher than most Americans could afford, 41-year-old, Carl Higdon prepared to venture out into the woodlands and wilderness in an attempt to hunt down a large chunk of his family’s meat supply for the following few months. He had done so several times before, but with ample space still in the freezer (which had to feed himself, his wife, and four children) he ventured out again. On this particular hunting mission, however, things would take a bizarre and other-worldly turn.
Carol and Margery Higdon
Higdon’s account is one of the most fascinating on record, and one that offers some physical evidence of, at the very least, a strange incident occurring. Furthermore, it is another case that offers details that are found in seemingly unconnected encounters, both across distance and time. Indeed, if there is any truth at all in the account of Carl Higdon – and all indications are that the incident is genuine – then it might offer us some clues as to why the UFO phenomenon exists, and why it is so persistent.
An Unexpected Afternoon’s Hunting!
As the 25th October began, Carl Higdon was not actually planning to go hunting. At least not initially. He was preparing to go to work as normal when he received a phone call from one of his crew before the afternoon shift. He was sick and wouldn’t be into work. Higdon, reasoning that he wouldn’t be able to get anything done without his sick crew member took the day off also. With the afternoon free, he decided to venture out into the Wyoming countryside looking to hunt elk.
He would set out to Carbon County and to McCarthy Canyon with his truck packed up for the afternoon. However, along the way, he encountered some fellow hunters who appeared to have trouble with their vehicle. He pulled over to assist the pair and consequently began talking with them. They would inform him of a place deep in the Medicine Bow National Forest, where there were much more elk and where the “hunting was much better”. It was a remote, little-known spot, but due to his kindness, the stranded hunters were happy to divulge the information to Higdon.
Following his getting their vehicle started, he set off again. However, this time he changed his destination. He would now head to the Medicine Bow National Forest instead. It wasn’t too far out, he reasoned. He was around forty miles from his hometown of Rawlings. By the time he arrived at his destination, it was late afternoon, just short of 4 pm. There was still light, but it was about to go into decline.
The Bullet “Floated Like A Butterfly!”
Upon exiting his truck and preparing his hunting gear, Higdon would spot another fellow hunter, his friend, Gary Eaton. The pair spoke for a few minutes before Gary informed him he was “going higher” into the forest than Higdon, but that he “might scare down some elk” for him. As his friend went on his way, Higdon made his way to the location the stranded hunters had informed about. As he did, he came across a concealed area behind a hill. It was shortly after entering this area that a sudden burst of movement out of the corner of his eye caught his attention. He focused on his surroundings and spotted a small herd of elk.
He was slightly above the elk, five of them in total. With his hunting rifle raised, he took aim at one of the animals and fired. However, not only did the “kickback” from the gun not happen, there was no sound whatsoever. At the same time, Higdon had the end of the rifle in his sights and claims to have witnessed the bullet leave the barrel and travel through the air so slowly it “floated like a butterfly”. It would eventually drop to the ground about fifty feet in front of him. He suddenly became aware of a “painful silence” all around him. Not a sound came from anywhere, or anything. Higdon could sense a feeling of static electricity that “you often get before a fierce thunderstorm”.
Coming to his senses a little, he stepped forward to retrieve the fallen 7mm bullet. He noticed that the lead part was no longer in the bullet, which itself – or the casing of it – was misshapen considerably. Suddenly, a twig snapped somewhere nearby.
Artist impression of Higdon Humanoid
The Non-Human Humanoid!
Higdon would spin around, immediately seeing the figure in front of him. Thinking it was a fellow hunter, he lowered his gun quickly. As the strange figure emerged from the shadows of the trees, however, he realized “something was terribly wrong”.
The figure was most-definitely humanoid, and male, but it wasn’t human. Higdon would later recall that the figure had “no detectable ears” with very small eyes and no eyebrows. He also recalled that his hair was coarse, “like straw growing out of his head”. It had a slit-like mouth that exposed three extremely large human-like teeth. Perhaps most bizarre were the antenna-like objects on each side of its forehead. Higdon would add, “No chin was visible. His face just seemed to blend right into his throat. He had no jaw bone”.
He would estimate the mystery male creature to be around six foot in height and adorned a one-piece, tight-fitting black suit, “similar to a wet-suit scuba divers wear”. On the chest were harnesses that crisscrossed each other. The figure also wore a metallic belt with a six-pointed yellow star where the buckle should have been.
Already unnerved and bordering on panic, when Higdon noticed the creature’s right arm it was all he could do to prevent absolute terror from gripping him. Where the hand should have been, was a drill-like device attached, or blended, on to the wrist. He looked at the left arm, noticing there was nothing at all on the end of the blunt limb. The creature moved forward, directly approaching Higdon. Bracing himself for the worst, it was a disorientating surprise when the creature asked matter-of-factly, “How you doing”?
The Transparent Cube
Already struggling to keep his composure and process what was happening, when the strange creature asked Higdon if he was hungry, it simply threw him even more. Before he could answer the questions, a clear package levitated towards him, seemingly at the commands of the strange visitor. Higdon reached for it. He opened the cellophane-like package, revealing four pills inside. The creature told Higdon that one of them would last him four days, and he should take one now. Without questioning, Higdon reached for one of the pills, placed it in his mouth and swallowed it. He then placed the package into his pocket.
The creature said his name was “Ausso One”. As he moved, Higdon became aware of a “transparent, cube-shaped object” on the ground behind the figure. He would estimate it to be around five feet high and wide, and around seven feet tall. Although he was not told so, Higdon somehow realized this was the strange figure’s ship. As if reading his mind, the creature asked him, “Do you want to come along?” Although he didn’t specifically answer yes, he must have gestured as much. The next thing he knew, he was inside the cube. Next to him was Ausso One. Struggling to understand how they could both fit inside such a small object, Higdon looked around in awe, but still with a persistent panic bubbling away inside of him.
When he noticed the five elk were also in the cube with them, his own memories and senses began to become “fuzzy”. He would recall, though, that “they were motionless – paralyzed”. It was then he realized he was sat in a chair with “bands” holding his arms down firmly.
A Planet 163,000 Light Miles From Earth!
He could feel that the craft was lifting off the ground. He also noticed another of the creatures enter the room. It approached him, fitting a bizarre helmet-like object to his head. The underside to the craft was clear, and beneath him, Higdon could see a planet-shaped object “similar to a basketball”. It was a planet, but it wasn’t Earth or any other planet he knew of. They would enter this mysterious world, and although Higdon’s memories of it are hazy at best, what he does recall is fascinating.
Most prominent in his mind was of a megalithic tower that dwarfed all around it. He would recall that “all around this tower were revolving patterns of multi-colored lights”. The lights were so intense that Higdon couldn’t keep his eyes open to look at them. Apparently, unaffected by their guest’s discomfort, the figures brought the craft to land at the base of the tower.
Higdon could see the alien world through the transparent walls of the craft. He was amazed, then, that in front of him, outside the craft, were several humans, talking to each other, just as they would on Earth. He claimed there were two young girls, one around eleven-years-old and one in her early teens, a teen-couple around eighteen years of age, and an older man in his fifties. As he watched this scene outside the ship, his host approached him once more. They were, he claimed, on a planet “163,000 light miles” from Earth. Higdon questioned if the creature had meant light years, to which he replied, “the passage of time is different” for them. Ausso One then motioned that they should go, and Higdon was led inside the behemothic tower.
Evidence Of A Breeding Program
He was taken into an elevator which took them to a room with a platform in the center of it. He was told to stand on the platform. As he moved he noticed he was not walking, but floating, although he didn’t understand how. Upon stepping on to the raised platform, a “glassy shield” appeared from out of the wall. It stopped in front of Higdon, evidently performing some kind of scan on him. After five minutes or so, the shield retracted away from him and back into the wall.
Then, his host informed him rather bluntly that he was to be taken back to Earth where they had found him as he “didn’t suit their purpose”. What is extremely interesting about this detail is just short of a decade later, an elderly gentleman in England named Alfred Burtoo would receive almost the exact same response to a similar examination on a landed UFO. It is highly unlikely that Burtoo was aware of Higdon’s encounter and perhaps endorses what Higdon believes “the purpose” was – a “breeding program”.
Before he knew it, he was back inside the cube with no real memory of how he had arrived there. He did recall, however, of Ausso One “admiring” his “primitive weapon” before handing him back his rifle. He also, rather bizarrely perhaps, remembers his host informing him that their home planet had no fish in their seas, which was one of the things about Earth that their people most liked. As they prepared to take off, the creature took back the pills as Higdon would now no longer need them. This was his last memory of the cosmic encounter before he found himself back on Earth.
Disorientated and on the verge of mentally breaking down, Higdon didn’t question how his truck had seemingly been moved several miles from where he had parked it to the spot where he encountered the humanoid creature. When the creature stated to him “We’ll see you”, he realized he was floating slightly above the ground. The next thing he knew, the craft was gone, and he was standing on the edge of a rocky cliff edge. Although the drop was only ten feet or so, he was not prepared for it. When he landed on the ground below he would sustain considerable injuries.
Perhaps he also suffered a concussion in the fall as his next memory is of struggling along a dirt road unable to remember what had happened or where he was. He eventually relocated his vehicle, although due to his shredded memory, he didn’t realize it was his truck. He was simply using it to take shelter.
When a voice came over the CB radio he quickly picked up the receiver and asked for help. Unsure of his location he would recall a sign that stated he was at the North Boundary National Forest. A search party would eventually locate him just before midnight. When they did, they were at a loss as to how he had managed to drive the truck there. Furthermore, there were no tire tracks anywhere nearby, despite the muddy ground. And just to add another twist to the whole encounter, as the search party was looking for Higdon they would encounter strange “green, red, and white flashing lights” in the skies overhead.
Artist’s impression Ausso One
Signs Of “Miraculous” Medical Recovery
Higdon’s wife had joined the search effort. However, Higdon, at first failed to recognize her. When he finally did respond to the search party, he exclaimed wildly, “They took my elk”. Higdon would eventually go with his wife to a patrol car and was taken to the nearest hospital. The rest of the search unit, with great difficulty, eventually managed to remove his truck from its mysterious location.
As well as the injuries sustained in the fall, doctors would notice how bloodshot his eyes were. Further tests would reveal more intriguing results, though. His blood, for example, appeared to be enriched with nutrients and vitamins, more so than the average person. Even stranger, scarring on his lungs from exposure to tuberculosis had seemingly disappeared. In short, as Dr. Tongo who examined him would state, “He’s now in A-1 super condition”. It is hard to imagine that this transformation isn’t connected to the encounter.
One of those who took an interest in Higdon’s case was Leo Sprinkle, who was adept at using hypnotic regression to unlock memories of such encounters. Although much of what occurred was already known to Higdon, the sessions in early-November 1974 did manage to reveal some other interesting aspects of the incident. And quite possibly offers us an insight into why such visitations are happening.
According to Higdon, the visitations to Earth are essentially food gathering missions. Many of the animals and fish on Earth do not exist anywhere else in the universe. Groups of such animals – such as the elk on this occasion – go to their home-world for “breeding purposes”. He also stated again that humans who go to this alien world are there for similar reasons. However, no further information came to mind regarding the particulars or details of the program. Higdon did state, however, that he believed the reason he did not “suit their purpose” was due to him having had a vasectomy several years previously.
Incidentally, Sprinkle would find in his evaluation that Higdon “is reporting sincerely the events he experienced”. Aside from the bizarrely crumpled bullet that he retained, it is impossible to explain the vanishing of the lung scars that are on his medical record. And then there is the impossible location of his truck that the search party never could explain how it came to such an inaccessible spot.
Several years later in 1978, Higdon underwent a polygraph test. He passed it unquestionably, with the report stating “something utterly fantastic did happen in this man’s life. The test proves it beyond doubt”.
The video below looks at this most fascinating case in a little more detail.

Filer’s Files #34 – 2018William Tompkins & UFOs- PART I
In special reports, this week’s files cover: William Tompkins Designer of Spaceships. President Reagan and Winston Churchill and UFOs. and Water Planets Are Common
Unidentified Aerial Phenomena sightings were reported over California, Colorado, Florida, Hawaii, Illinois, Massachusetts, Nevada, New Jersey, North Carolina, Ohio , Oregon, Tennessee, Texas and Wisconsin.
Unidentified Aerial Phenomena sightings were reported over Australia, Canada, Eire, France, Germany, Portugal, Puerto Rico, Sao Tome, and England in the United Kingdom.
The Filer Research Institute feels the scientific study of UFOs is for the benefit of humankind and is an important endeavor. The US Air Force investigated UFOs publicly for more than twenty years under Project Blue Book; and I continue this advanced research. I believe the God of the universe has spread life throughout the cosmos and UFO’s are visiting us in ever-increasing numbers.
Forward these files to your friends and neighbors.
William Tompkins Designer of Spaceships.
A friend of mine William Tomkins passed away a year ago. He was introduced to me by Dr. Bob Woods after I spoke about Life on Mars in a MUFON Symposium in Irvine California in July of 2011. I met William just after some NASA personnel assured me there had been life on Mars, but they could not reveal it to the public. William Tompkins testimony to me then was mind blowing, but Dr. Bob Woods vouched for William. I attempted to verify the very advanced testimony of William and found some support from high ranking military officers.
William Tompkins was embedded in the world of secrecy as a teenager, when the Navy took his personal ship models out of a Hollywood department store because they showed the classified locations of the radars and gun emplacements. He was personally present at the “Battle of L.A.” when a thousand rounds of ammo were fired at UFOs, and one of the Nordic craft may have selected him to be their rep in the evolving aerospace race.
Tompkins stated in his book due to his excellent memory and model building skills he was assigned to Naval Intelligence working for Admiral Rick Abatta in World War II. According to Tompkins, his unit had a series of US Naval spies who returned from Germany who had discovered that the Germans were working on advanced wingless aircraft or types of discs apparently with the help of extraterrestrials. Germans reportedly back-engineered a crashed UFO and according to Tomkins the Navy spies claimed Adolph Hitler was working with Reptilian aliens and building early models of UFOs.
The Reptilians had large caverns in Antarctica and numerous scientists were transferred to Antarctica to build advanced craft. The SS allowed a group of personnel to build UFOs in Germany and attempted to develop their own. Tomkins job was to take this information to various aviation companies, universities and research organizations. He often flew to Naval Development Center in Warminster, Maryland. This book is a partial autobiography about his life to the beginning of the 1970s including some of his early work for TRW. In his autobiography, Tompkins describes what the Navy spies had found:
Tompkins explained, the Germans started in 1939, building and importing equipment into a massive cavern in Antarctica that was tied to extraterrestrial operations. They were building large transport submarines and anti gravitational UFOs. These craft allegedly flew Hitler and large numbers of Nazis to Argentina and Antarctica in the last stages of the war.
Selected by the Navy prior to completing high school to be authorized for research work, he regularly visited classified Naval facilities during WWII until he was discharged in 1946. After working at North American Aviation and Northrop, he was hired by Douglas Aircraft Company in 1950, and when they found out about his involvement in classified work, was given a job as a to create design solutions as a draftsman with a peripheral assignment to work in a “think tank”. This work was partly controlled by the Navy personnel who used to work for James Forrestal, who was allegedly assassinated because he was going to publicly reveal what he knew about UFOs. Bill Tompkins was asked to conceive sketches of mile-long Naval interplanetary craft designs.
Tompkins Spaceship Drawing
Later, as he became involved in the conventional aspects of the Saturn Program that later became the Apollo launch vehicle, his insight to system engineering resulted in his offering some critical suggestions personally to Dr. Wernher von Braun about ensuring more reliable checkout using the missiles in their vertical position and also some very efficient launch control concepts adopted by both NASA and the Air Force. Tompkins claimed he designed the NASA Apollo Launch Facility.
This story is peppered with very personal interactions with his co-workers and secretaries, some of whom the author believes to be Nordic aliens helping the “good guys” here on Earth. Towards the end of this volume of his autobiography, he sketches what he personally saw on TV when Armstrong was landing on the moon.
Born in May 1923, Bill Tompkins is one of the few survivors of the “big war” who is lived healthy to age 96, married to the same girl Mary, and is willing to tell his story about what he really did during his aerospace life in the 40s, 50s and 60s that relate to aliens, NASA and secrets that now can be told.
William Tompkins has extensive experience in advanced space research relating twelve years as engineering section chief at the Douglas Missile and Space Division, four years as corporate director of North American Advanced Space Research, founder and chairman of the Advanced Space Concept Staff at the think tank within the TRW Space Systems, four years as program director of the 2020 advanced Anti-Sub Warfare program and was a member of the corporate headquarters Red Team at General Dynamics Corporation. This experience has led to his membership in the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON), and he has done extensive research into extraterrestrials and unidentified flying objects. He was preparing a six-volume autobiographical study on the subject to be released soon to be entitled Selected by Extraterrestrials.
The Navy agents (spies) in Germany discovered what all those “out of this world” aliens gave Hitler: UFOs, antigravity propulsion, beam weapons, extended life and plenty of mind-controlled willing girls programs. Allegedly, the reptilians made a deal with the Third Reich SS giving them this big box full of toys in exchange for letting Hitler enslave the rest of the planet. (pp. 70-71) The Air Force Library contains a document reporting that a team led by Colonel Watkins who later was promoted to general scavenged Nazi Aviation companies and airfields to capture the latest enemy aircraft. These aircraft were loaded on a British aircraft carrier and brought to the US. Most of the craft were named but some experimental ones were not described. General Watkins always maintained UFOs were not alien and were likely Soviet using German engineers..
Over his four years with Navy Intelligence, Tompkins helped in the covert distribution of data from Nazi Germany’s two distinct secret space programs to Douglas Aircraft Company, along with other select aerospace companies and universities that had the scientific expertise to understand what the Nazis were doing.
When Tompkins joined Douglas Aircraft Company in 1950, it had already formed its Advanced Design think tank to design antigravity space craft. Once Tompkins moved over to Advanced Design in 1951, he was specifically tasked to design a variety of antigravity space vehicles, using his knowledge of Naval Intelligence gathered from Nazi Germany and his own talent for technical detailing. Dr. Michael Salla has successfully attempted to verify Tompkins’s statements and has been able to obtain a great deal of favorable evidence.
Mr. William Tompkins has extensive experience in advanced space research relating twelve years as engineering section chief at the Douglas Missile and Space Division.

William Tompkins had four years as corporate director of North American Advanced Space Research, founder and chairman of the Advanced Space Concept Staff at the think tank within the TRW Space Systems, four years as program director of the 2020 advanced Anti-Sub Warfare program and was a member of the corporate headquarters Red Team at General Dynamics Corporation. This experience has led to his membership in the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON), and he has done extensive research into extraterrestrials and unidentified flying objects.
Tompkins’ revelations about the current operations of secret space programs derive from two periods in his life. First is his time at the helm of the Rogue Valley (Medford), Oregon chapter of the U.S. Navy League from 1985 to 1999. During this period, he was given briefings about operations of secret space programs and extraterrestrial life, and shared some of this information through a “Special Projects Committee”; with retired Navy, Marine and USAF officers .Corroboration for Tompkins’ statements about the Navy League
Admiral Hugh L. Webster
Special Projects Committee comes both from related documents and two retired Navy officers who confirmed key aspects of his testimony. Furthermore, Tompkins says that Admiral Hugh Webster, who ran the U.S. Navy League chapter in San Diego and was an executive officer for it nationally, was initially briefed about the Navy’s secret space program by Tompkins in 1985. Webster subsequently began a similar operation in San Diego, and became part of the Navy’s covert operations.
The second period in which Tompkins learned about the operational details of the Navy’s secret space program began in 2000, when he moved to San Diego, giving him more opportunities to work directly with Webster. It was Admiral Webster who gave Tompkins permission to write his autobiography and reveal all he knew about the Navy’s secret space program.
Tompkins has further disclosed that he is a participant in the Navy’s annual “West” meetings in San Diego, where leading aerospace companies come together to share their research and development findings. Among the purposes of these meetings is the goal of finding the latest technologies that may be of use for the Navy’s secret space program.
Photographic Evidence of Space ships
John Walson ‘s claims and disclosures have not been given the coverage which they undoubtedly deserve. He has hundreds of official USAF documents to back up his claims. If he is correct, as the evidence suggests, then the U.S. does have a secret space fleet consisting probably of dozens of 600 feet wide flying triangles, which can go to and from space with ease, travel at Mac 9 +in any direction. For over ten years John Walson has taken up close images of celestial craft in orbit around the Earth John writes, ‘I have so much more that I have not told anyone yet, I have very specially made UV spectrum telescopes and UV real cameras with very amazing footage. I would really like to share my telescope inventions in a TV show to use my equipment to solve famous historical Ufo or Sky space based events.
I’m saving to be able to bring my telescope to a dark area, no atmospheric distractions. I want to give you clear beautiful high quality video, and evidence from a remote location without freezing in the process, and without interference.
Walson claims he discovered that many “stars” in the sky are in fact HUGE structured objects – giant machines are “fixed” in the sky. With this new-found ability, he has proceeded to videotape, night and day, many strange and heretofore unseen objects in earth orbit. Walson claims that he can record them in plain daylight at noon and that he can record sounds from the machines in space. The resulting astro-photographic video footage has revealed a raft of machines, hardware, satellites, spacecraft and likely alien space ships which otherwise appear as ‘stars’… if they appear at all. These discs are seen hovering over thunderstorms appearing to collect lightning strikes perhaps to collect electrical energy.

President Reagan announced in the United Nations an extraterrestrial presence was already among us. Address
“In our obsession with antagonisms of the moment, we often forget how much unites all the members of humanity. Perhaps we need some outside, universal threat to make us recognize this common bond. I occasionally think how quickly our differences worldwide would vanish if we were facing an alien threat from outside this world. And yet, I ask you, is not an alien force already among us? What could be more alien to the universal aspirations of our peoples than war and the threat of war?”
It appears that Reagan was secretly briefed daily about extraterrestrial life, and some of the threats this posed to humanity. It appears he was really warning the world about classified alien secrets withheld from the global public and launched the most expensive defense program ever to protect humankind? Global unity was an imperative to deal with all the implications of such a presence! There is testimony from several witnesses that joint nation military units are on occasion downing alien ships not of the planet. In 1983, President Reagan gave a speech in which he called for the development of a missile-defense system.
The project was called the Strategic Defense Initiative, but the media cheerleaders mocked it as “Star Wars,” and surprisingly Reagan offered to share the technology with the Soviet Union. Solar Warden a series of spaceships with several types of weapons systems appears to exist.
This system now exists with a demonstrated capability although with changed names. It is now the Missile Defense Agency, which is very rare indeed: a federal agency that is generally regarded as both responsible and effective.
Reagan wasn’t the first world leader to think about extraterrestrial life — Winston Churchill, for one, had done that decades earlier. Winston was well aware of UFOs and Earl Mountbatten his Commander of the Navy had seen them up close.
Winston Churchill was the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom during World War II and his spies likely obtained similar information as the US Navy spies that Tompkins interviewed. Predictions Ahead Of Their Time
Churchill begins his 1939 essay pointing out that “all living things of the type we know require water,” and although we can’t say for certain that other liquids are possible sources of life, “nothing in our present knowledge entitles us to make such an assumption.” One point for Churchill: nearly 80 years later, we still use the presence of water as a sign that life is possible on another planet.
After concluding that, due to their favorable conditions, Mars and Venus are the only other planets in our Solar System that could harbor life, he ventures beyond, writing “the sun is merely one star in our galaxy, which contains several thousand millions of others…I am not sufficiently conceited to think that my sun is the only one with a family of planets.” Churchill goes on to say that a sizeable portion of planets outside our solar system “will be the right size to keep on their surface water and possibly an atmosphere of some sort” and some will even be “at the proper distance from their parent sun to maintain a suitable temperature.” That might not seem surprising until you remember that Churchill, a non-scientist, wrote this more than 20 years before the Drake Equation—which laid out the probability of finding life on other planets—and decades more before the first exoplanet was ever discovered.
As Churchill wrote later in 1958, “It is only by leading mankind in the discovery of new worlds of science and engineering that we shall hold our position and continue to earn our livelihood
I feel Reagan’s warning was authentic, and extraterrestrials are already here? I know there is much closer cooperation between nations when chasing and confronting UFOs. The news media doesn’t seem to have any reliable inside information concerning this entire field of research not to mention most other fields .
Huge Spaceships photographed in our Skies Are Evidence for Tompkins. The ISS is on the left, a spaceship right.
What is John Lenard Walson videotaping with his proprietary telescope video camera technique? Are these just satellites or ET spacecraft Or, are we seeing large and very sophisticated spacecraft for the first time that we AREN’T supposed to see? Walson received the following comment about one of the videos:
“Hello again. And, again, my congratulations on your superb astrophotography. MIT Lincoln Laboratory is the group which has built some of the things you are seeing. Much of what they do is what used to be the Star Wars project, which no doubt involves some of your objects.” They examined crashed UFOs held at Wright Patterson AFB and likely back engineered these craft.
Typical Walson Spaceship
Important Navy Sighting
The military personnel who are encountering these phenomena tell remarkable stories. In one example, over the course of two weeks in November 2004, the USS Princeton, a guided-missile cruiser operating advanced naval radar, repeatedly detected unidentified aircraft operating in and around the Nimitz carrier battle group, which it was guarding off the coast of San Diego. In some cases, according to incident reports and interviews with military personnel, these vehicles descended from altitudes higher than 60,000 feet at supersonic speeds, only to suddenly stop and hover as low as 50 feet above the ocean. The United States possesses nothing capable of such feats.
On at least two occasions, F-18 fighters were guided to intercept these vehicles and were able to verify their location, appearance and performance. Notably, these encounters occurred in broad daylight and were independently monitored by radars aboard multiple ships and aircraft. According to naval aviators I have spoken with at length, the vehicles were roughly 45 feet long and white. Yet these mysterious aircraft easily sped away from and outmaneuvered America’s front-line fighters without a discernible means of propulsion.
Jeff Rense Radio Show will honor William Tomkins on August 31, 2018 starting at 10 PM Eastern, 7 PM Western for three hours. Frank Chile, Bob Woods, and I with Jeff will discuss the revelations of Tomkins. Rense.com
The Space Force
President Trump announced he is going to create the Space Force a new military force to defend us from attack from space implying the Chinese and Russians are increasing their forces in space . This force would also be able to defend Earth from aliens coming in from space. The Space Force will be independent from our other military forces. Shortly after the announcement, information started coming out that we already had a large Space Force and it had been kept secret for a very long time. Secrecy had been required to protect the Force from being targeted and attacked by potential enemies, both foreign and extraterrestrial. The following two videos will show you that the existence of the Space Force was known to individuals here who are now talking about it and show how we captured advanced anti-gravity craft from the Germans who used them against us in World War 2.
In The Diary entry for Tuesday, June 11, 1985 (page 334) Reagan wrote:
Lunch with 5 top space scientists. “It was fascinating. Space truly is the last frontier and some of the developments there in astronomy etc. are like science fiction, except they are real. I learned that our shuttle capacity is such that we could orbit 300 people.”
Note: This would indicate a space ship at least as large as a 747 aircraft that is 250 feet long. It is likely much bigger to accommodate sleeping quarters, kitchen facilities, bathrooms, storage radar and weapons. The now grounded Space Shuttle held a maximum of eight people and even if all five took off fully loaded it would be impossible to put 300 astronauts in orbit. Apparently President Reagan revealed the existence of a highly classified space program that could accommodate hundreds of astronauts in orbit that would to be at least 500 feet long?
British hacker Gary McKinnon first hacked into NASA’s Johnson Space Center: He found a high definition picture of a large cigar shaped object over the northern hemisphere.
McKinnon later hacked into classified files of U.S. Space Command incorporated into Strategic Command on October 1, 2002. He found a list of officers’ names. Under the heading ‘Non-Terrestrial Officers. McKinnon stated that what he found was a list of fleet-to-fleet transfers’ ‘fleet-to-fleet transfers, and a list of ship names’. He said that after looking them up. He realized that they were not US Navy ships. What he saw made him believe that NASA was keeping a secret about an off planet space fleet. Gary McKinnon claims to have stumbled upon a secret list of up to ten space warships after breaking into NASA computer databases. A couple ships were named the USSS Curtis Lemay and USSS Roscoe Hillenkoetter. He claims it points to a secret American space program.
Father of Stealth aircraft, Ben Rich was the second director of Lockheed Skunkwork’s from 1975-1991. He developed the stealth fighter, the F-117A Nighthawk. , Rich made several shocking open statements about the reality of UFOs and extraterrestrials.
“We already have the means to travel among the stars, but these technologies are locked up in black projects, and it would take an act of God to ever get them out to benefit humanity. Anything you can imagine, we already know how to do it.”
“We now have technology to take ET home. No it won’t take someone’s lifetime to do it. There is an error in the equations. We know what it is. We now have the capability to travel to the stars.”
“There are two types of UFOs — the ones we build and the ones ‘they’ build.”
When Rich was asked how UFO propulsion worked, he said, “Let me ask you. How does ESP work?” The questioner responded with, “All points in time and space are connected?” Rich then said, “That’s how it works!”(This is related to Quantum entanglement, you can read more about that here.)
Jan Harzan the International Director of MUFON and former senior executive with IBM attended a talk given by Rich to engineers on March 23rd, 1993 at a UCLA School of Engineering.
Rich stated, “We now know how to travel to the stars. There is an error in the equations, and we have figured it out, and now know how to travel to the stars and it won’t take a lifetime to do it. It is time to end all the secrecy on this, as it no longer poses a national security threat, and make the technology available for use in the private sector. There are many in the intelligence community who would like to see this stay in the black and not see the light of day. We now have the technology to take ET home.”

This artist’s conception shows habitable-zone planets with similarities to Earth. From left: Kepler-22b, Kepler-69c, Kepler-452b, Kepler-62f and Kepler-186f. Last in line is Earth itself.
“Water worlds” are incredibly common throughout the Milky Way galaxy, a new study suggests.
Midsize alien planets — those two to four times larger than Earth — tend to harbor huge amounts of water, according to the research. Indeed, some of these exotic worlds are probably up to 50 percent water by weight. (Our seemingly wet Earth, by contrast, is just 0.02 percent water by weight.)
“Our data indicate that about 35 percent of all known exoplanets which are bigger than Earth should be water-rich,” study leader Li Zeng, a postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences at Harvard University, said in a statement. “It was a huge surprise to realize that there must be so many water worlds.” [Gallery: The Strangest Alien Planets]

Filer’s Files #34 – 2018 William Tompkins & UFOs - PART II
UFO Sightings in the United States
Bermuda Dunes — It was August 16, 2018, exactly 6pm as I looked at my IPhone. There was a bank of high white clouds 10-15 miles South East of me as I was driving down Avenue 42 . started to notice two black saucer shape objects slowly come out of the clouds. They each had to be larger than 300 feet due to the distance. They had no lights or other object protruding from them. I was driving at 40 mph so it was hard to focus take picture and drive. I got one picture that shows as they both started going back into the clouds. Thanks to MUFON CMS
Canon City— The object was caught on a game camera with before and after pictures of the horizon which gives perspective on the event. It was captured on film about 7.5 miles SE from the camera location and 1/2 mile in the sky (above the tree line ~ 8400 feet) on July 9, 2018 . Data was discovered upon review of all game cameras on the property. It is located ~ 15 miles NNW of Canon City on a mountain ridge line. Thanks to MUFON CMS
Orlando — I was at a light turning into my business and I noticed three trails high in the sky on August 21, 2018, Three objects appear to be flying in formation above the cloud cover I also noticed a normal commercial airline flying in to MCO which is normal, but these objects were flying super fast even faster than military jets. I’ve seen in the past they appeared to be ascending into the atmosphere almost like a rocket but I am not aware of any rocket launches happening at the Cape today and in perfect formation. It was very odd. Thanks to MUFON CMS
Lahaina, Maui — I was taking a sunset picture prior to the hurricane like I almost always do on my lanai in Napili, when I saw a blurb in my picture review on my camera on August 23, 2018. I did not see anything thru my viewfinder as I was shooting. I looked up and saw nothing in the sky. We are currently in hurricane watch conditions from Lane with winds at 20 – 25 mph at the time, so I don’t think it was a drone or a weather balloon because how could it disappear so fast, maybe 5 seconds elapsed from shooting to looking up. In the picture the wind is blowing right to left. Upon downloading my shots I noticed the blurb and assumed it was a large bird. I zoomed in and saw a round disc with a V shape cut from one side, greyish – green. The photo was taken at 1/1000 of a second, a setting I used in the high winds to ‘freeze’ the trees. Thanks to MUFON CMS
Driving down main street, I first noticed the dark mass coming from clouds then a white line coming from below, It popped up for two pics then vanished on August 10, 2018.. In the clouds you’ll see tons of white orbs and in one pic more to let you’ll see couple black orbs or birds. All this Happen as I drove about two blocks then they vanished. I’m assuming they were using the sun to charge the crafts
Thanks to MUFON CMS
Amherst – On August 25, 2018, witnessed a cylindrical object hovering at approximately 1000 feet altitude with very little movement on a clear day. Event lasted 15 minutes before I lost sight of it, but not after taking pictures. Two small aircraft were seen approaching the object, which seemed to be several times larger than them. It was a clear day with no sound or lights. Eventually it moved out of my line of sight behind some trees. The object was at least 100 feet long. Thanks to MUFON CMS
Sparks — On the evening of August 7, 2018, my wife and I were coming out of a building and I looked up at the amazing Sunset over Peavine Mountain. I took a few pictures and we headed to our next stop. While in route I told my wife Maria Teresa, to take another photo of the Sun setting. We stopped in a parking lot to get a better picture, the Sun was almost gone and I buried her to snap the photo. We didn’t see the craft until we viewed it and expanded the size of the picture. I first thought it was something on the phone lens, but it didn’t wipe away. Thanks to MUFON CMS
New Jersey Light
Clifton — My wife saw it first and then called me as we witnessed the strange ball of light just hovering. We also saw airplanes flying underneath the hovering ball of light.
The was taken on August 14, 2018
Thanks to MUFON CMS
Charlotte — This is something I noticed on my TV screen
Watching the US Open as they went to commercial I noticed this on my TV on August 23, 2018,
Thanks to MUFON CMS
Xenia— My wife was driving home from the store around 8ish on August 12. 2018.
and noticed this light in the sky. Thanks to MUFON CMS
Oregon Bright Light
Portland — At the first I thought it was a star because I have been seeing it f or 3 weeks prior. Tonight on August 18, 2018, I realized it was the second UFO I have ever seen in my life.
It just hovered and changes a buff shape and it seemed to get bigger and smaller the longer I kept watching it.
Thanks to MUFON CMS
State College — Was attending the State College Spikes baseball game when a lightning storm caused the game to be stopped on August 15, 2018.
My wife tried to get a picture of the lightning and this is what we saw in the picture.
Have no idea what it is but a friend also saw these lights on his drive home. Thanks to MUFON Thanks to MUFON CMS
FT Mill— My sister took the attached photo from outside a restaurant. Other people were looking up to the sky so she did too and saw this strange coloring in the sky on September 15, 2016. It almost looks like an object fell out of the cone shape. Could this be a UFO or just a strange but normal weather condition? There was no storm or rain that day. This photo is untouched. I am just looking for a professional to check it out and tell me what you think it is. There really isn’t anything else to add. We didn’t even see the small white object under the cone shape until after the photo was taken. She just thought the cone shape looked unusual.
Hohenwald — A woman found a strange diamond shaped object above her head in a photo taken of her.
Neither the photographer or herself saw the object. Photo was taken on August 12, 2018.
Rockport – On the first day of school I took pictures of my granddaughter. After taking her to school I was looking at my pictures and noticed an object in her pictures. I made the picture bigger and can see it’s not a cloud.
Photo was taken on August 22, 2018
Thanks to MUFON CMS
Oconto – I took this photo on a terrible storm night. Didn’t realize until a couple years later that it sure looks like ships in the lighting if you look close.
I just wanted someone with experience to blow this photo up and get there perspective. Photo was taken on June 14, 2018
