In a measurement taken on Wednesday, NASA’s Curiosity rover discovered startlingly high amounts of methane in the Martian air, a gas that on Earth is usually produced by living things. The data arrived back on Earth on Thursday, and by Friday, scientists working on the mission were excitedly discussing the news, which has not yet been announced by NASA.

NASA Rover on Mars Detects Puff of Gas That Hints at Possibility of Life

Methane has been detected by multiple craft on or at Mars multiple times. The speculation is it could be coming from life under the Martian soil, volcanoes or the rover itself. Methane does not last long in the atmosphere, so any that is detected has been released into the atmosphere relatively recently.

Flatulence!

It’s flatulence!

This is pretty old now, June 22, eh, but it was apparently a big one and noteworthily so.

All I know is that I am really digging the phrase, “startlingly high amounts.” Startling! Yes, sirree, I like that a lot.

 

 

Whoa!

Solar system wonderment…!

Some sort of a heat wave warms the rings of Uranus, even though the planet orbits far away from the sun.

New heat images of the planet, obtained by two telescopes in Chile, reveal the temperature of the rings for the first time: minus 320 degrees Fahrenheit (minus 195 degrees Celsius), or the boiling temperature of liquid nitrogen.

While that sounds cold by Earthly standards, consider that most of space is much colder, approaching a temperature at which atoms stop moving. This point is called absolute zero, which is roughly minus 460 F (minus 273 C).

Mysterious Glow Warms Rings of Uranus

A composite image of the atmosphere and rings of Uranus seen in thermal emission.

The scientists who captured the new images said they aren’t sure what’s causing the relative warmth. But the weird temperature proves that the brightest and densest ring at Uranus (also known as the epsilon ring) is very different from other ring systems in our solar system.

This is way cool and rather shocking. At least to me. I would think the rings would be colder, but, like humanity, what do I know? Ha! Napundivricuala, that’s what!

Some of our members are interested in this stuff so I thought I would post the link and some of the article. www.phantomsandmonsters.com…

During the Vietnam War, American soldiers referred to an often-seen hominid as the ‘Rock Ape.’ I’ve heard many encounter accounts of reddish hair-covered primates that stood 4-6 ft. tall sneaking through the jungle at night. Some of these soldiers even claimed to have killed these primates. Was the ‘Rock Ape’ a reality or a result of jungle warfare? Regardless of the claims, people had been seeing something in these thick forests prior to the war.

The Nguoi Rung (Forest People), sometimes known as the ‘Batutut’ or ‘Ujit,’ are hairy, ape-like hominids that the locals say inhabit the dense jungles of Vietnam, especially the Three Forests region, where Vietnam, Cambodia, and Laos converge. Descriptions vary in size, with fur ranging from grey to brown to a reddish color, but the creature is always said to walk in an upright, bipedal position. By 1974, sightings had become so frequent that General Hoang Minh Thao, commander of North Vietnamese forces in the Central Highlands, ordered a scientific survey of the area in an attempt to locate them. While an actual Nguoi Rung could not be located, the scientists did make a plaster cast of a suspiciously wide footprint.

This information leads up to an article in the Phnom Pen Post that references the Tek Tek, the Yeti of Cambodia:

It was a loud evening deep in the jungle, the crickets, frogs and odd cicadas were busy playing their usual nighttime symphony. A group of trekkers were getting ready to bunk down for the night.

“My friend was zipped up in his hammock and beginning to doze off, when he noticed that all of the insects had stopped making sounds: the jungle went completely silent,” said Greg McCann, a field coordinator for HabitatID, a conservation group working in Virachey National Park, where the trekkers were camping.

A few moments later, a horrid smell engulfed the camp –

There are several other stories and links for those who might be interested.

As far as I know there aren’t any photos of one. This unfortunate situation is completely understandable as soldiers don’t carry cameras, usually, out in the field, especially when the field is a jungle and as they’re often restricted and, naturally you’d really have your mind on other things even if they let you have a camera out on patrol.

Ya dig?

America Before: The Key to Earth’s Lost Civilisation, by Graham Hancock

GrahamHancockDotCom
Published on Aug 9, 2019

Graham Hancock’s new book, published 2019, is the New York Times top 10 nonfiction bestseller “America Before: The Key to Earth’s Lost Civilization”. From March through June 2019, Graham toured widely in the UK, the US and Canada, speaking about the book. The talk, offered free-to-view here, is the only version that will be available online and was given in Graham’s hometown, Bath, on Saturday April 6th 2019. The event organiser was Toppings Books and the venue was Christ Church, Julian Road, Bath. Graham’s daughter, Shanti Faiia, formerly a lawyer, now a healer and yoga teacher, sings the song “Waiting on an Angel” in the opening 5 minutes before the talk begins. More on Shanti’s work here: www.shantifaiia.com/. More on “America Before” here: . Graham’s website here: grahamhancock.com/. facebook Twitter

Videography and video editing by Luke Hancock

Was an advanced civilization lost to history in the global cataclysm that ended the last Ice Age? Graham Hancock, the internationally bestselling author, has made it his life’s work to find out — and in America Before he draws on the latest archaeological and DNA evidence to bring his quest to a stunning conclusion.

Hancock’s research takes us on a series of journeys and encounters with the scientific rebels responsible for the recent extraordinary breakthroughs. In the process, from the Mississippi Valley to the Amazon rainforest, he reveals that ancient ‘New World’ cultures share a legacy of advanced scientific knowledge and sophisticated spiritual beliefs with supposedly unconnected ‘Old World’ cultures.

Have archaeologists focussed for too long only on the ‘Old World’ in their search for the origins of civilization while failing to consider the revolutionary possibility that those origins might in fact be found in the ‘New World’? ‘America Before: The Key to Earth’s Lost Civilisation’ is the culmination of everything that millions of readers have loved in Hancock’s body of work over the past decades, namely a mind-dilating exploration of the mysteries of the past, amazing archaeological discoveries and profound implications for how we lead our lives today.

I was fortunate enough to catch Graham giving this lecture at a lovely church in the east SoHo. It was wonderful and revealed much more new info than I ever expected.

It all started here!

That is HUGE.

 

 

NASA’s Alien Anomalies caught on film – A compilation of stunning UFO footage from NASA’s archives

LunaCognita
Published on Mar 24, 2009

This compilation includes many of my favorite NASA UFO encounters/sightings that I have archived over the years. All of these examples (with the exception of the second-to-last one) were captured on film by NASA astronauts or Russian Cosmonauts over the past half-century – showing many amazing examples from different eras – Gemini, Apollo, Apollo/Soyuz Test Project, Skylab, STS, the ISS, plus a couple Russian-source additions from their unmanned Zond and Mir Space Station programs as well thrown in to round things out.

The second last example is the only one in the compilation that features footage that was not taken in space and is not official-source (NASA or Soviet/Russian Space Agency). That clip shows an LTP (Lunar Transient Phenomenon) event captured through a camera connected to the eyepiece of a terrestrial-based telescope that luckily was being focused on the Moon at the time. In this case, the LTP manifests as an object transiting across the face of the lunar disc. Many thanks to amateur astronomer Alberto Mayer of Italy for doing a wonderful job of filming this stunning event (and for stacking the footage for us all to see).

While the examples you will see here captured on film can all be “officially” classified as “unidentified” objects, that absolutely does NOT mean that NASA, the DoD, and certain elements within the scientific community worldwide are completely in the dark as to what these things you are seeing are. Make no mistake: The Powers That Be are indeed aware of far more about our mysterious Universe than they are ever willing to admit to us. We, the plebeian masses of this planet, are being held in a state of enforced ignorance, deemed not worthy of knowing the full truth by those who are REALLY “running the show” down here on Earth. As this video shows over and over again however, there are indeed snippets of that amazing truth that have been left scattered about the official government archives over the decades, there for us to find so we may begin to educate ourselves about what is the most monumental coverup in human history – where the only thing more incredible than the lies is the truth!

Also, be sure to check out Jose Escamilla’s new motion picture documentary “MOON RISING,” where we go into much further depth about what is, without exaggeration, the most monumental coverup in human history. You have NO idea what you have been missing!

Bigfoot screams Sierra Nevada, July 1, 2019

Paranormal Central
Published on Jul 12, 2019

My family and I returned to a spot where we went camping last year. No reason on the spot, The wife just found this location on maps. Last year, as we slept, my 12 year old son woke up to something slapping our trailer. As he was looking up at the window thru the blinds, he saw something very big walk by the window covering the whole window.. from the ground to the top of the window is 7 feet.. it scared him so bad he jumped in bed with us crying hysterically. So we decided to go back, but this time with my sound equipment.. All we were hoping was to get some wood knocks. Well, we got more than that… it went on for a little more than 9 minutes. Needless to say, we will never forget that night…

I am going to need to listen to this a few more times. Yes.

These screams, after just this first listen, are some of the strangest sounds I’ve clapped ears on. Quite a lot of them don’t sound much like screams to my mind. As of now. I am at a loss for words to describe them, even. Tomorrow, when I’m less pooped.

Is it … singing? Is it a concert? Of sorts?

That would be strange.

Interesting discussion going on here.

Somewhere amongst the rubble is a CD by these guys that I got at an INFO conference many, many moons ago.

Here is the basic story of the recordings:

The Bigfoot Recordings – A True High Sierra Wilderness Story

Challenged by skeptics, but time-tested by scientific analysis, these accounts bring to the reader an exciting report of unsurpassed vocal interaction between humans and Bigfoot. Recorded on reel-to-reel tape in 1972-74 at the famous Sierra Camp in California. Take the journey into this unsurpassed phenomenon and decide for yourself; is Bigfoot real, or just the product of a colorful imagination.

Volume 1 CD is 40 minutes. Produced in 1996 by Ron Morehead, it features very clear vocalizations captured in 1972 by Alan Berry, the investigative reporter brought into camp. Narrated by Jonathan Frakes (Commander William T. Riker) of “Star Trek: The Next Generation” fame.

Volume 2 CD is 40 minutes. Produced in 2003. Written, produced and narrated by Ron Morehead. It features rhythmic rapping-pounding sounds, and almost understandable phrases emanating from these creatures. The very same sounds that have been thoroughly analyzed by a former military cryptologic linguist as having a discernible language!

Send Me An Angel: Bizarre Atmospheric Phenomenon Caught on Camera in Brazil

© Photo: YouTube / Disclose Screen ‘The Grimreefar’    VIRAL 23:13 13.08.2019

The massive shining figure was recorded soaring in a cloudy sky, changing direction but retaining its bizarre shape. It is unclear whether the filmed object is an energy source or a remarkable light refraction.

A strange and unique atmospheric phenomenon was caught on camera in Brazil. A video uploaded by a UFO hunter who goes under the name of Disclose Screen “the Greemreefar” shows a T-shaped shining object in the cloudy sky, which roughly resembles an angel in a long robe.

“It looks like light refraction but then again it looks like some type of energy source,” the cameraman says on the video. “It’s even got the harmonious appearance of an angel.”

The T-shaped object remains in motion for a period of time, moving from one cloud to another, changing angle and direction.

People commenting on the video which was posted Monday found the figure to also resemble a dragon.

The nature of the phenomenon remains unclear. Several conjoined ball lightning spheres, however unlikely, could be one possible explanation.

Fascinating! Much more so than the “B.V. Mary” sighting a little while ago. Because it hangs out and moves on the clouds.

Could this be a plasma lifeform in a rare visible state? It needs to be considered. Research has shown that plasma will act in ways that are indicative of life as we know it. That was at a time around Einstein’s early days. I have long been a proponent of plasma life. It just seems so logical. And there is such good evidence pointing in that direction.

Strange Flying Objects Spotted During Tornado in Amsterdam Spark UFO Theories Online

A peculiar phenomenon was recently observed in the skies above Amsterdam just as a tornado swept across the city centre last week.

A video uploaded on YouTube channel Mavi777, depicts what appears to be a strange glowing object soaring in the sky near the top of the swirling column, with a caption claiming that the footage was recorded on 10 August. The veracity of the video could not be immediately confirmed.

I’ve always liked these storm chaser FOs. They’ve been recorded so many times now.

These objects could well be living plasmoids, too, perhaps feeding off the crumbs of the storm’s energies.

Ah, who knows, eh!

They’re nice to look at, these things, nice to wonder about.

After a bit of searching I found the gate on Google maps. It’s on the bend just before Cranbrook. Looks like a genuine report. As usual the 1976 Dangerous Wild Animals Act is quoted as the ‘logical’ reason for animals being released, though reports of these animals stretch far back into history and black leopards held their value, unlike pumas, releasing black leopards was far too infrequent to account for all the sightings.

Elaine Morgan says we evolved from aquatic apes

TED
Published on Jul 31, 2009

www.ted.com

Elaine Morgan is a tenacious proponent of the aquatic ape hypothesis: the idea that humans evolved from primate ancestors who dwelt in watery habitats. Hear her spirited defense of the idea — and her theory on why mainstream science doesn’t take it seriously.

OMG I’m in love with this lady!

I, too, am a supporter of the aquatic apes in our history, you see.

Furthermore, I support the existence of an aquatic species who split off and started when we did. This species is still around today. Possibly having something to do with the ubiquitous USOs.

A Field Guide to Shells and Lifeforms on Mars, part 1

MartianLifeforms
Published on Oct 23, 2015

www.martianlifeforms.com

This is a video by Tim Beech, the owner of the now 22 year old Life On Mars website established in 1997 as The Peculiar Rocks of Mars. There’s only a single video on his YouTube channel, this one, so it looks like the series he speaks of never happened.

Maybe Tim just got disillusioned in his quest? These things are unknown. But this video has mighty few views for being up for four years.

I think the similarity in pattern and shape is quite interesting, but they could actually be just rocks in odd lighting… So many minerals form perfect geometric shapes here at home, so minerals would on Mars, too. Although these examples are not rigidly similar at all, some are rounded and well, it could be something. So there.

Yes… the more I think about it the minerals are out, (noting that rocks are lumps of minerals), but although “I Want To Believe,” it might be that while it’s certainly plausible, it is certainly not probable.

The movement clip (see sidebar) that Tim discovered does still intrigue me, though. The resolution he was working with for all of these shown here is just barely adequate for pleasant viewing, let alone analysis, so, yeah, illusion and pareidolia abound. Having said that, however, note that a few of them are still — of interest. And we mustn’t forget the myriad of fantastic “rocks” that our modern rovers have happened upon. And driven past.

Hey, here’s a link to Tim’s Martian Lifeforms forum. Not a lot there, though.

Be well.

This lovely creature was found swimming all alone in that vat of God-knows-what oily, nasty concoction and was reportedly unidentified.

Right up my alley! This was somewhere in the United States, I’d say 70s or 80s. Wish I still had my photographic memory. Sigh.

Naturally there was never a follow up to the story.

I hate when that happens.

New Finds for Mars Rover, Seven Years After Landing

NASA’s Curiosity rover has come a long way since touching down on Mars seven years ago. It has traveled a total of 13 miles (21 kilometers) and ascended 1,207 feet (368 meters) to its current location. Along the way, Curiosity discovered Mars had the conditions to support microbial life in the ancient past, among other things.

And the rover is far from done, having just drilled its 22nd sample from the Martian surface. It has a few more years before its nuclear power system degrades enough to significantly limit operations. After that, careful budgeting of its power will allow the rover to keep studying the Red Planet.

Curiosity is now halfway through a region scientists call the “clay-bearing unit” on the side of Mount Sharp, inside of Gale Crater. Billions of years ago, there were streams and lakes within the crater. Water altered the sediment deposited within the lakes, leaving behind lots of clay minerals in the region. That clay signal was first detected from space by NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) a few years before Curiosity launched.

“This area is one of the reasons we came to Gale Crater,” said Kristen Bennett of the U.S. Geological Survey, one of the co-leads for Curiosity’s clay-unit campaign. “We’ve been studying orbiter images of this area for 10 years, and we’re finally able to take a look up close.”

Rock samples that the rover has drilled here have revealed the highest amounts of clay minerals found during the mission. But Curiosity has detected similarly high amounts of clay on other parts of Mount Sharp, including in areas where MRO didn’t detect clay. That’s led scientists to wonder what is causing the findings from orbit and the surface to differ.

The science team is thinking through possible reasons as to why the clay minerals here stood out to MRO. The rover encountered a “parking lot full of gravel and pebbles” when it first entered the area, said the campaign’s other co-lead, Valerie Fox of Caltech. One idea is that the pebbles are the key: Although the individual pebbles are too small for MRO to see, they may collectively appear to the orbiter as a single clay signal scattered across the area. Dust also settles more readily over flat rocks than it does over the pebbles; that same dust can obscure the signals seen from space. The pebbles were too small for Curiosity to drill into, so the science team is looking for other clues to solve this puzzle.

Curiosity exited the pebble parking lot back in June and started to encounter more complex geologic features. It stopped to take a 360-degree panorama at an outcrop called “Teal Ridge.” More recently, it took detailed images of “Strathdon,” a rock made of dozens of sediment layers that have hardened into a brittle, wavy heap. Unlike the thin, flat layers associated with lake sediments Curiosity has studied, the wavy layers in these features suggest a more dynamic environment. Wind, flowing water or both could have shaped this area.

Both Teal Ridge and Strathdon represent changes in the landscape. “We’re seeing an evolution in the ancient lake environment recorded in these rocks,” said Fox. “It wasn’t just a static lake. It’s helping us move from a simplistic view of Mars going from wet to dry. Instead of a linear process, the history of water was more complicated.”

Curiosity is discovering a richer, more complex story behind the water on Mount Sharp – a process Fox likened to finally being able to read the paragraphs in a book – a dense book, with pages torn out, but a fascinating tale to piece together.

NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, leads the Mars Science Laboratory mission that includes Curiosity.

WATCH: A fire tornado snatches firefighters’ hose, pulling it up to 100 feet in the air before melting it completely! Canadian firefighter Mary Schidlowsky shot this footage while battling tough ongoing wildfires in British Columbia.

Holy sh!t !

 

 

I find this case to be absolutely fascinating and just had to share it with thee and thine and with thy mind. Yup, it’s neat.

Props to our shawmanfromny for finding this. I doubt I would have known of it if he hadn’t.

First, his report…

I just saw an interesting YouTube video clip on reddit and decided to check out the original source.

The edited clip, posted on reddit here, was credited to UFOvni2012, a YouTube channel that posts videos on astronomy and astrophotography. This person also posts a lot of photos and video clips of anomalies on the Moon’s surface, that he claims are either “alien structures,” or “alien craft.” I checked out a few of those videos and I think he overreaches on his conclusions concerning these anomalies…probably for views. However, he does have some interesting clips of orbs/UAPs that appear on the Moon’s surface.

This particular object, suddenly appears over the Moon’s surface. At first, I thought that it was just some sort of luminous gas exhaust from an underground vent, but then, the UAP does appear to move. If this object was just a capture of a satellite in Earth’s orbit, or of a bird in flight at night, it wouldn’t appear to be stationary. Instead, it would be seen as a small, dark object that’s moving in front of the Moon’s field of view, like what’s shown in the following clips:

However, this object is luminous and at first remains static, before it starts to move. Here’s a screen shot of the object from the original video clip. In the upper right is a superimposed close up.

This has really put a tight grip on my grey matter.

Having said that, I am referring to the object featured out in the second video and referenced with timestamps in the first. I am not supporting the so-called “alien structures” in any way, shape or form. Silliness, to the max. There is no resolution available yo support those claims and there are, of course, hi-res photos of the area available from NASA from various missions and craft. And no one has said a word.

Anyway…

It just appears, as if by wizardry. Or, rather, it’s luminosity just appears, as if, to get all anthropomorphic, it just got “turned on.” And then… it just sits there. For a good, long while. This is not the behavior of the latest hoax project of some basement dwelling kid. The flickering it displays is a bit odd to my neurons, but not awfully so. Can’t think of a good cause for it except sputtering exhaust. There are, actually, comments that it might be gas escaping and somehow being excited into luminosity, which is quite plausible.

But, it stays coherent and…

… it starts to move!

In a way that gas venting from the surface is not going to be able to do, in reference to the subsequent path that’s taken by the light.

Still flickering, it travels at a moderate pace in a reasonably straight line at what appears to be level flight, in front of the little crater it first appeared next to, following along what looks like a ridge line. It then stops and seems to “shut off.”

But…

Regarding the shutting down of the flickering light, note that in the big inset in the top video, which is (said to be the original), I note what seems to be non-luminous “roiling,” of the surface, or the object, between 4:38 and 4:59.

I dearly wish that the resolution was much higher. Even with a 4K sensor, there just aren’t enough pixels on duty in this tiny section of the frame. Everything is just a blur. Ha! Like the old days! But these shots wouldn’t have been possible not that long ago. Perhaps a more powerful eyepiece for his video camera to peer through. Then again, big scopes are big money. Hey, 8K will be the norm soon.

Exceptionally intriguing.

Tell me, what do you think of this? Please leave a comment, as I would love to know your thoughts on this.

Beauty. Gorillas are people, too.

And don’t you forget it.

Capiche?

Good.
