Short drive on Sol 283: 5 off Navcam mosaics acquired after the drive

Perfectly placed for another sample? Or maybe to study the sand ripples, or even sample sand. The short drive was ~ENE, so not really sure what prevented them from continuing south. Must have been a good target that they could not say no to?

Yutu-2 has already found a mystery blob in a crater and now while continuing on it’s trundle around the Far Side of the Moon it has spotted a curious cube-shaped object in the distance.

I’ve slightly zoomed in on the object but the original picture and story is Here

Now I know it’s probably just one or perhaps two of kubrick’s monoliths but the CNSA have found it interesting and decided to trundle over to take a closer look at it, it may be just a giant rock or perhaps one of those Alien Moon bases reported to exist on the Dark Side of the Moon , that was why China went there after all.

Andrew Jones, a journalist who addresses the Chinese room system for SpaceNews and Space.com, highlighted a new rover update in a sequence of tweets Friday. The nickname for the dice-formed object translates to “secret household.”

Ah. We have an update from Yutu-2 on the lunar far facet, together with an picture of a cubic condition on the northern horizon ~80m absent from the rover in Von Kármán crater. Referred to as “神秘小屋” (“thriller home”), the future 2-3 lunar days will be invested getting closer to check out it out. pic.twitter.com/LWPZoWN05I

I’m not saying it’s Aliens but until it’s not Aliens it could be Aliens …. but would the Chinese tell us ?

Here is a wider view. It is estimated to be about 80 meters or 262 feet away.

I am thrilled that they are going to drive over there and take a good look! Fantastic!

In this one I put the dpi up to 300 and cropped it closer.

Wonderful!

A Mysterious UFO Light Shining From Underground Martian Surface Spotted By NASA’s Curiosity Rover

Physics Insight
Sep 16, 2021

An image transmitted from Mars to Earth by NASA’s Curiosity rover has some alien enthusiasts seeing the (artificial) light about the possibility of life on Mars. The image, visible at the raw images database from NASA’s jet propulsion laboratory, depicts what appears to be a white speck of something in its upper left-hand portion. Curiosity snapped the image shortly after arriving at the “The Kimberley” waypoint on April 2. These images were taken by NAV_LEFT_B (Left Navigation Camera) onboard NASA’s Mars rover Curiosity on Sol 589 (April 3, 2014).

This NASA Satellite Has Just Detected A Huge Miles Long Structure Moving On The Surface Of Mars

Unexplained Mysteries
Nov 4, 2021

This NASA satellite has just detected a huge miles long structure moving on the surface of Mars. Today, we take a look at what this NASA satellite detected on the surface of Mars. In recent years Mars has been featured a lot in the news, and this is because space agencies are gearing up to send various missions there. NASA and other companies like Spacex have been vocal about how they plan to send humans there within the next few decades, with the end plan having various space shuttles carrying humans there daily. It sounds far-fetched but it’s something that researchers have said can happen. Although it can happen though it comes with various obstacles, mainly cost. Setting up something like this will easily go into the billions.

Thank you for watching!
Thank you to CO.AG for the background music!

The Malibu Anomaly: Is This an Undersea UFO Base?

Preston Dennett
Oct 22, 2021

Deep underwater, a few miles off the coast of Malibu, California, lies a massive and mysterious stone structure. With a large flat top and what appears to be giant columns and an entrance into a dark tunnel, the “Malibu Anomaly” has become famous across the world. Some say that it’s a natural geological formation, while others believe it’s an undersea UFO base. Which is the truth?

Natural or artificial, the structure is located in the center of a well-known UFO hotspot known as the Santa Catalina/San Pedro Channel. More than 150 documented cases of UFOs and “USOs” (unidentified submersible objects,) surround the area. Reports reach back more than 100 years and are still continuing to the present day.

How old is this formation? If it is a construction, then who built it and why? Is the government aware of it? Could it actually be an undersea UFO base? Is it evidence of ancient aliens? Its unusual appearance, and the fact that there are so many UFO and USO reports lend credence to this theory. However, skeptics point out that there is no hard evidence proving that this structure is, in fact, made by extraterrestrials.

In this video, we take a deep dive into all the known evidence, and objectively examine everything that has been learned about this extraordinary structure known as the Malibu Anomaly. We will look at the distribution of the UFO and USO accounts in this area. We will hear of reports from UFO experiencers who may have actually been taken inside the base. We will hear theories and conclusions from scientists and ufologists who conducted firsthand investigations, including sending down an unmanned submersible to take a close-up look at the structure. We will examine this structure from every angle and see if we can come up with answers to the many mysteries surrounding the Malibu Anomaly.

If you would like to take an even deeper look at the Malibu Anomaly, and the 150 UFO/USO reports surrounding it, and more, you may want to check out my book, “Undersea UFO Base: An In-Depth Investigation into USO Activity in the Santa Catalina Channel.” Now available!

11-02-21 Chris Pittman, Historical UFOs & Bridgewater Triangle

Martin Willis Live Shows
Streamed live on Nov 2, 2021

Guest Chris Pittman on historical North American UFO sightings, early mankind, the Bridgewater Triangle. Why took a break from the topic and where he thinks “THEY” may be from.

BIO: Chris Pittman is a UFO investigator and historian. Born in Massachusetts in 1979, he began investigating local UFO sightings in the mid-1990s. His area of study widened over time, and he eventually focused on looking into historical UFO sightings in North America from early Colonial times through the mid-20th Century. In addition to this historical study, Pittman has been a primary investigator of the anomalous region in southeastern Massachusetts known to paranormal researchers as the “Bridgewater Triangle,” having created the first web site on this topic in 1999. Pittman has written and lectured on paranormal subjects and has appeared in several episodes of the television program Ancient Aliens. He was also featured in the films “The Bridgewater Triangle” (2013) and “The Phenomenon” (2020).

Tons of info that will enrich our understanding of the phenomena throughout history.

I completely agree that the point of origin is here on Earth, based in the water, the oceans and large lakes. Assigning anthropomorphic values to them is risky, I think, but it could be on some levels. The fascination is over the top for me.

Some of it is pretty bizarre.

Ingenuity Mars Helicopter’s Flight 13: Zoomed-In View From Perseverance

Ingenuity Mars Helicopter’s Flight 13: Zoomed-In View From Perseverance (issued November 18, 2021)

Recently downlinked imagery of a September flight has allowed the rover imaging team to put together a video of rotorcraft performing to near-perfection.

Video footage from NASA’s Perseverance Mars rover of the Ingenuity Mars Helicopter’s 13th flight on Sept. 4 provides the most detailed look yet of the rotorcraft in action.

Ingenuity is currently prepping for its 16th flight, scheduled to take place no earlier than Saturday, Nov. 20, but the 160.5-second Flight 13 stands out as one of Ingenuity’s most complicated. It involved flying into varied terrain within the “Séítah” geological feature and taking images of an outcrop from multiple angles for the rover team. Acquired from an altitude of 26 feet (8 meters), the images complement those collected during Flight 12, providing valuable insight for Perseverance scientists and rover drivers.

Captured by the rover’s two-camera Mastcam-Z, one video clip of Flight 13 shows a majority of the 4-pound (1.8-kilogram) rotorcraft’s flight profile. The other provides a closeup of takeoff and landing, which was acquired as part of a science observation intended to measure the dust plumes generated by the helicopter.

“The value of Mastcam-Z really shines through with these video clips,” said Justin Maki, deputy principal investigator for the Mastcam-Z instrument at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Southern California. “Even at 300 meters [328 yards] away, we get a magnificent closeup of takeoff and landing through Mastcam-Z’s ‘right eye.’ And while the helicopter is little more than a speck in the wide view taken through the ‘left eye,’ it gives viewers a good feel for the size of the environment that Ingenuity is exploring.”

During takeoff, Ingenuity kicks up a small plume of dust that the right camera, or “eye,” captures moving to the right of the helicopter during ascent. After its initial climb to planned maximum altitude of 26 feet (8 meters), the helicopter performs a small pirouette to line up its color camera for scouting. Then Ingenuity pitches over, allowing the rotors’ thrust to begin moving it horizontally through the thin Martian air before moving offscreen. Later, the rotorcraft returns and lands in the vicinity of where it took off. The team targeted a different landing spot – about 39 feet (12 meters) from takeoff – to avoid a ripple of sand it landed on at the completion of Flight 12.

Though the view from Mastcam-Z’s left eye shows less of the helicopter and more of Mars than the right, the wide angle provides a glimpse of the unique way that the Ingenuity team programmed the flight to ensure success.

“We took off from the crater floor and flew over an elevated ridgeline before dipping into Séítah,” said Ingenuity Chief Pilot Håvard Grip of JPL. “Since the helicopter’s navigation filter prefers flat terrain, we programmed in a waypoint near the ridgeline, where the helicopter slows down and hovers for a moment. Our flight simulations indicated that this little ‘breather’ would help the helicopter keep track of its heading in spite of the significant terrain variations. It does the same on the way back. It’s awesome to actually get to see this occur, and it reinforces the accuracy of our modeling and our understanding of how to best operate Ingenuity.”

The wide-angle view also shows how Ingenuity maintains altitude during the flight. After an initial ascent to 26 feet (8 meters) altitude, the helicopter’s laser altimeter notes a change in elevation of the terrain below as it heads northeast toward the ridgeline. Ingenuity automatically adjusts, climbing slightly as it approaches the ridge and then descending to remain 26 feet (8 meters) above the undulating surface. Once it flies to the right, out of view, Ingenuity collects 10 images of the rocky outcrop with its color camera before heading back into frame and returning to land in the targeted location.

After Flight 13, Ingenuity went quiet in October, along with NASA’s other Mars spacecraft during Mars solar conjunction, when the Red Planet and Earth are on opposite sides of the Sun, precluding most communications. Following conjunction, Ingenuity performed a short experimental flight test before undertaking Flight 15, which began the multi-flight journey back to the vicinity of “Wright Brothers Field,” its starting point back in April.

Ooh, from the second link:

INSIGHT MISSION NEWS | October 1, 2019

NASA’s InSight ‘Hears’ Peculiar Sounds on Mars

Put an ear to the ground on Mars and you’ll be rewarded with a symphony of sounds. Granted, you’ll need superhuman hearing, but NASA’s InSight lander comes equipped with a very special “ear.”

The spacecraft’s exquisitely sensitive seismometer, called the Seismic Experiment for Interior Structure (SEIS), can pick up vibrations as subtle as a breeze. The instrument was provided by the French space agency, Centre National d’Études Spatiales (CNES), and its partners.

SEIS was designed to listen for marsquakes. Scientists want to study how the seismic waves of these quakes move through the planet’s interior, revealing the deep inner structure of Mars for the first time.

But after the seismometer was set down by InSight’s robotic arm, Mars seemed shy. It didn’t produce its first rumbling until this past April, and this first quake turned out to be an odd duck. It had a surprisingly high-frequency seismic signal compared to what the science team has heard since then. Out of more than 100 events detected to date, about 21 are strongly considered to be quakes. The remainder could be quakes as well, but the science team hasn’t ruled out other causes.

So the labeling within the video is wrong, although the title is right; it was not the mics on Percy, but whatever, all good, eh.

The Coblynau can be thought of as a Welsh ‘Goblin’. They often appeared in Folklore through tales of Miners, who could hear Knocking sounds in the passages, and there were stories of Coblynau directing these miners toward riches in the mine. I’m skeptical of that, however.

Sun, November 14, 2021, 7:35 AM

  • Extreme weather forced snakes and scorpions out of their nests in southern Egypt, per reports.
  • At least 450 people were injured and three people died of scorpion stings, an Egyptian health official said.
  • Doctors were reportedly diverted from COVID-19 vaccinations centers to treat stinging victims.

Extreme weather in Egypt brought out a swarm of scorpions from their nests, resulting in hundreds of people in the southern city of Aswan being stung and three people dying from their injuries, according to multiple reports.

At least 450 people were injured by scorpion stings on Friday, an Egyptian health ministry official said, according to the BBC.

Three people died after succumbing to those injuries, Sky News reported.

Heavy rain, hail, and dust storms near the River Nile, forced scorpions and snakes out of the ground, Sky News reported.

The scorpions, displaced by the weather, then sought shelter in people’s homes, the Independent reported.

Egypt is home to the fat-tailed scorpion, one of the most dangerous scorpion species in the world.

The Egyptian newspaper al-Ahram reported, citing a health ministry official, that those who were injured have been hospitalized and are receiving treatment.

Authorities have provided extra amounts of anti-venom medication to medical units in villages near Aswan, al-Ahram reported.

Doctors were redirected from COVID-19 vaccination centers to help treat the scorpion stings, the BBC reported, citing a health official.

People have been urged to stay at home and avoid places with lots of trees, the BBC reported.

We’re seeing a spate of boars in urban areas these days.

Rome
www.npr.org…

Entire families of wild boars have become a daily sight in Rome, as groups of 10-30 beasts young and old emerge from the vast parks surrounding the city to trot down traffic-clogged streets in search of food in Rome’s notoriously overflowing rubbish bins.
Posting wild boar videos on social media has become something of a sport as exasperated Romans capture the scavengers marching past their stores, strollers or playgrounds.

Barcelona (Spain)
www.latimes.com…

According to the BBC, the vocalist was attacked in a Barcelona park and is the latest victim of aggressive hogs that have invaded the Catalan capital in recent years. Boars are listed among the world’s most invasive species and can survive in almost any environment but have increasingly been drawn to urban areas where they live off garbage discarded by humans.

Hong Kong
news.rthk.hk…

The AFCD said it plans to conduct monthly operations to capture wild boars with dart guns with anaesthetics for humane dispatch.
It pointed out that some wild boars have gotten used to wandering busy urban areas and roads to find food.
The department said that injuries linked to the animal have also been on the rise, with an average of 10 cases per year in the past three years.

Haifa (Jerusalem)
www.jpost.com…

These boars are big, around the size of Rottweilers, and travel in packs. They are smart enough to break into gardens and trash cans, and can potentially turn violent.
Dealing with them is difficult, with Haifa residents having formed “pig patrols” to combat the boars. One resident actually created a 3D-printed whistle to deter wild boars.

there are references to Boars in cities in France and other places but I don’t want to post linques on restricted / pay sites.

I wonder if this is universal among big cities, and just now getting notices? I noticed a few of these stories involved celebrities (Shakira, Coco Lee).

Well, at last y’all can join the club! When people scream about AR’s and 30 round mags, this is one of the reasons to keep them in your arsenal in Texas.

It’s been a problem here for quite a while with feral hogs. They are mostly nocturnal and absolutely destroy yards and fields in one night, then move on.

Hog hunts have become pretty popular as well. Farmers and land owners are more than happy to allow these hunts. Many outfits around Texas charge big money to go in helicopter hunts and the guided dog hunts. The helicopter is self explanatory but the dogs…yikes. I always thought there was something wrong with people who want to stab a giant hog to death with pits holding it.

Wild boars are a big problem across 35 US states. Being prolific breeders of about 6 piglets per litter, and 1.5 litters per year, they’re impossible to control. They do an estimated $50,000,000 in damages to crops each year.
Arizona has javelinas of Arizona are much smaller, but can be quite ferocious and do a lot of damage in towns they inhabit.
Animals of all kinds seem to be making an effort to inhabit populated areas. Stop at a fast food restaurant in the greater Seattle area, but use the drive through; if you get out of your car you’ll be surrounded by some angry, hungry raccoons that won’t back down.

Extra Energy for Extra-terrestrial Science!: Update for Sols 3294-3295 [details in comments]

Extra Energy for Extra-terrestrial Science!:

Curiosity Rover mission update for Sols 3294-3295:

Written by Mariah Baker, Planetary Geologist at Center for Earth & Planetary Studies, Smithsonian National Air & Space Museum,

November 11, 2021.

When the operations team logged on today, we were prepared to pick up where Monday’s team had left off in Curiosity’s ongoing drill campaign at Zechstein. But then we received some news: even though the original plan already included two hefty science blocks, the rover still had extra energy to spare! In order to take advantage of this excess energy, the team added yet another science block to the plan and strategically positioned it to occur in the morning around 8 AM local Martian time. While science blocks typically occur during the middle of the day, this early morning time was desirable because it would provide better illumination for acquiring a ChemCam RMI image of a complex rock outcrop nearby (shown in the Mastcam image above). Plus, the additional heating needed to operate instruments during the cold morning hours would use up more of the rover’s spare energy. In other words, this new morning block was beneficial for both science and operations—a win win!

The other two science blocks in the plan were also filled to the brim with activities: two Mastcam mosaics were planned on local bedrock including target “Hare Stone,” and a third Mastcam mosaic will provide stereo coverage of a curved sand ripple that can be seen from orbit. A ChemCam Passive observation will collect supplementary data on a pebble that was studied previously using ChemCam LIBS. Additional ChemCam LIBS measurements and associated Mastcam documentation images will be acquired on bedrock targets “Tong Saltings” and “Stack of Handa.” A third Mastcam documentation image of the Zechstein drill hole will be used to monitor wind-driven changes in the drill tailings. The rover will also collect a set of environmental Navcam observations including dust devil, suprahorizon, and zenith movies, as well as a line-of-sight image for studying atmospheric dust levels. Even with all the activities planned over the next two sols, the rover is projected to have enough energy entering the plan on Friday for another full weekend of science!

Issik Kul is a remote deep-water lake located in the northern Tian Shan Mountains, in the Transiliysk Ala Tau area of Kyrgyzstan (Central Asia). The name means “warm water”; the lake is surrounded by snow-capped peaks but it never freezes. According to a well-informed Ukrainian writer V. Krapiva, in the late 1930s a Russian researcher of the paranormal, Grabovsky conducted an interview with a reluctant witness. That man and his friends had explored a cave near the Issik Kul Lake, where they discovered three human skeletons, each more than three meters tall.

The skeletons were adorned with decorations that looked like bats (flying mammals) made from silver. The men became scared out of their wits and kept silent about their discovery for many long years.

They did melt the silver decorations, but a small piece had been saved. Soviet scientists who had studied the piece said they could not determine its age. Interestingly, a Kyrgyz legend does mention a submerged city in the lake. The city’s ruler, King Ossounes, was a creature with “long asinine ears”. The lake itself has been known to experience paranormal phenomena. Secrets Of History : Mysterious Giants Inhabit Eurasian Lakes

Yet more Russian waterboys. Very cool stuff and well done.

Mystery Flesh Pit National Park – 2007 Disaster Report

The Exploring Series
Oct 8, 2021

Is the Mystery Flesh Pit real or fake? People have questions about the Texas National Park “attraction” after its creator tweeted about a long-awaited update.

What is the Mystery Flesh Pit?

The Mystery Flesh Pit is the name given to a “bizarre natural geobiological feature discovered in the Permian basin region of West Texas in the early 1970s.”

That’s in the words of the creator, Trevor Roberts. The illustrator goes on to describe the national park’s fleshy central feature, which has posters and brochures.

  • EXPLORED: Who is New York Jets star Carl Lawson’s girlfriend?

He says in a chat with Tor: “The pit is characterized as an enormous subterranean organism of indeterminate size and origin embedded deep within the earth, displaying a vast array of highly unusual and often disturbing phenomena within its vast internal anatomy.”

In other words, it is a pit whose walls are made of a flesh-like substance, and which goes deep into the earth.

Is the Mystery Flesh Pit real or fake?

As mentioned, it’s a creation by artist Trevor Roberts. Thankfully.

It’s what’s called a worldbuilding project. Worldbuilding is the process of constructing a fictional universe so, despite the official-looking brochures, it is definitely something that a creative cooked up in his head.

Most of the lore can be found on either the official Subreddit or on Tumblr, with videos being hosted on a related YouTube channel.

Sodalite is a type of rock that reacts with UV light. When exposed to it, the rock turns to a golden, lava-like color.

This is pretty cool. They should put UV lights on all the rovers.

 

Hey, this might be a good thing.

phone calls from the dead increasing

When the old landlines were up and running many strange phone calls were received, then we had caller ID answering machines, and now a cellphone can just record a message anomalous or just normal, it seems that still, certain rules apply when getting a message from a deceased loved one over this method of communication. The number which it came from is either out of the area or has about ten zeroes in it, the caller cant stay on the phone long, a high level of static is heard. If the call is of long duration, the caller and the recipient don’t seem to realize they are dead. If the caller is told that they are dead the call seems to stop abruptly. Sometimes when there is a missed call and there is a callback number, sometimes it is actually answered by the deceased. The question is what is really going on here. The Video is interesting but more so are the comments, if only ten percent are true we have a very interesting phenomenon that is worth the time of inquiry.
On one comment I read which pops up is that of a dreamed phone call, by the caller, where the phone is answered in real life, which still has the high static but can last for quite a time.

Whoa, this is so odd.

Magical forest, Where Erwin Saunders looks for Pixies, made to relax and calm you.

Moor Explore
Premiered Sep 20, 2021

After watching the Erwin Saunders videos, I read the comments with interest and most people commented that the place where he filmed relaxed them, I recognised the place immediately, and so decided to show you more of this beautiful magical and enchanted wood in the hope it will bring you calmness. I can’t promise any pixies like Erwin Saunders, but sit back relax and enjoy the scenery. If you would like to see more of these please like, subscribe and comment. I would love to know your thoughts. Thanks for watching. —– Music by Bensound.com

Oh, nice!

 

If its really what it looks like, then this must be a faery. I say that because it looks much more human than the pixies that Erwin spots in the UK.

Of course, it could just be pareidolia, too.

No information was posted along with this picture. Which sucks. But sadly is pretty much the norm. The full frame seen in the inset wasn’t even posted.

Searching resulted in only these two versions of the same thing at this site, but there’s still no link to an original source. I mean, really. Sigh.

Weird.

Can you find it?
