Way back in NASA’s Gemini days, we forteans had some excitement on Gemini 10, a mission to dock with two unmanned craft to get practice with, well, docking. A photo was taken that looked odd and naturally it was deemed a UFO as the shape was strange, two dots with a line between them. It had faded from my memory, to be honest.

The other day, a thread caught my eye on ATS as it was titled Gemini 10 UFO Photo: New Color-Manipulatons. Ooh! The member who wrote it and did the work, peacefulpete, did a nice job amping up the colors to get a better view. It’s a nice technique that I have often used. The top two results below are from those labors. And it is pretty neat looking.

Then our dear Phage popped in saying it was just one of the docking targets… and provided hi-res NASA photos which have been available for several years, unbeknownst to pete, (or to me, actually). Phage is such a font of data it’s incredible. One can clearly see in the high res imagery what it is in fact that was being seen. The third and fourth results below are one of the high resolution photos.

As Jim Oberg often points out, things don’t behave in space like they do here on Earth. The UFO was just sunlight catching the lens at just the right angle.

So, pete made a new video with the proper analysis of the incident, which is below.

But…

In re-examining the photos for the new vid, peacefulpete found some brand new anomalies cavorting above the Earth. Personally, I think they are wonderful and I can’t wait to see what he does with these new finds. Images below! I think you’ll agree that they are, in fact, mighty fine.

Number 10. Giant Trilobite. No, this is not the Indominus Rex from Jurassic World, the I-Rex was actually a prehistoric trilobite species… At more than 60 cm in length, the ‘Isotelus rex’ was the largest species of trilobite ever known – scavenging the ocean floor during the Paleozoic Era 500 million years ago… A specimen of Isotelus rex, from Churchill, Manitoba, is the largest complete trilobite ever found. It measured 72 cm in length and 40 cm in width… Trilobites were simple and adaptable organisms, managing to survive for 300 million years. Number 9. Giant Shrimp. Anomalocaris canadensis – say that three times fast – looked like a blend of giant squid and shrimp… It was around a meter long with a mouth full of razor-sharp teeth. Fossils found in China show that it was a massive undersea arthropod that lived 500 million years ago… It propelled itself through the water by undulating the flexible lobes on the sides of its body. Each side acted as a single ‘fin’, maximising swimming efficiency… Its powerful mandibles were used to catch large prey. It ate using its ‘serrated cigar cutter’ teeth…

O.o I enjoyed this! If you dig bugs, you will, too.

What has two short, chunky arms, a mane of feathery gills, and a sleek, green-marbled, eel-like body as long as your leg? No guesses? Meet the reticulated siren, a massive, two and a half foot-long salamander, described for the first time in a paper published today in the journal PLOS ONE, hailing from the remote, secluded wilds of *checks notes* southern Alabama and the Florida Panhandle.

Sirens are a small family of unusual salamanders found throughout the Southeastern U.S. and parts of Mexico. They are entirely aquatic, living in swamps and ponds and keeping their bushy external gills through adulthood. Ranging from a few inches to over three feet long, sirens have shrimpy forelimbs, and have ditched their hindlimbs altogether, leaving only a long, eel-like body and tail fin. Their name comes from their mermaid-adjacent body plan and their occasional “singing” and croaking.

Knowledge of the reticulated siren didn’t just spring into being overnight. For decades, the salamander had an almost mythical status in herpetology circles.

Sean Graham, a biologist at Sul Ross State University, author of American Snakes, and lead author on the new study, first heard about the enigmatic “leopard eel” in the early 2000s. “It was almost a rumored thing, almost like a unicorn,” he recounted. “Some biologists were familiar with it and had seen it.”

Hearing those biologists’ stories and seeing the handful of preserved specimens that were collected years ago left an impression. “I thought ‘holy crap, this is a big siren species that’s really obviously different,’ boldly colored and crazy looking!” Graham said. About ten years ago, while in graduate school at Auburn University, he mentioned the siren’s possible existence to then-fellow student David Steen, now a research ecologist at the Georgia Sea Turtle Center and coauthor on the study.

“We wanted to describe this mysterious siren that others had noted as occurring in southern Alabama,” Steen said. “But we had no real claim to the project; we knew that if we wanted to work on this species we had to find one in the wild ourselves.”

Graham and Steen periodically visited the salamander’s purported turf, but came back empty handed every time. Then, in 2009, Steen captured one in the Florida Panhandle.

Andrewsarchus—the World’s Largest Predatory Mammal

by Bob Strauss
Updated September 25, 2018

Andrewsarchus is one of the world’s most tantalizing prehistoric animals: its three-foot-long, toothstudded skull indicates that it was a giant predator, but the fact is that we have no idea what the rest of this mammal’s body looked like.

Andrewsarchus Is Known by a Single Skull

as

All we know about Andrewsarchus amounts to a single, three-foot-long, vaguely wolf-shaped skull, discovered in Mongolia in 1923. While the skull clearly belongs to some type of mammal—there are obvious diagnostic markers by which paleontologists can distinguish between reptilian and mammalian bones—the lack of an accompanying skeleton has resulted in nearly a century of confusion, and debate, about what type of animal Andrewsarchus really was.

The Fossil of Andrewsarchus Was Discovered by Roy Chapman Andrews (My Hero!)

rca

During the 1920’s, the swashbuckling paleontologist Roy Chapman Andrews, sponsored by the American Museum of Natural History in New York, embarked on a series of well-publicized fossil-hunting expeditions to central Asia (then, as it still is now, one of the most remote regions on earth). After its discovery, Andrewsarchus (“Andrews’ ruler”) was named in his honor, though it’s unclear whether Andrews bestowed this name himself or left the task to other members of his team.

deer eating a bird

Birds were flying in and running into the head of this young buck in our front yard. I was watching through the window, and I didn’t know why the birds were attacking him. Then, I saw the little bird on the ground. The other birds had only been trying to distract the deer. I decided not to exchange the audio with music because when I played the video back, I realized my overly dramatic reaction was funny. Yes, I know I have a country accent. Please be kind in your comments! I own the rights to this video. RIP Michael, my amazing husband. I miss your laugh! 12/06/60 – 08/10/18

And there it was! I’ve never heard of this behavior before, but obviously if this one did it, then I’m sure millions of others have, too. Gosh, do adult deer also eat birds? Or, omg, babies?!

NASA InSight Lander Arrives on Martian Surface

Mars has just received its newest robotic resident. NASA’s Interior Exploration using Seismic Investigations, Geodesy and Heat Transport (InSight) lander successfully touched down on the Red Planet after an almost seven-month, 300-million-mile (458-million-kilometer) journey from Earth.

InSight’s two-year mission will be to study the deep interior of Mars to learn how all celestial bodies with rocky surfaces, including Earth and the Moon, formed.

InSight launched from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California May 5. The lander touched down Monday, Nov. 26, near Mars’ equator on the western side of a flat, smooth expanse of lava called Elysium Planitia, with a signal affirming a completed landing sequence at 11:52:59 a.m. PST (2:52:59 p.m. EST).

“Today, we successfully landed on Mars for the eighth time in human history,” said NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine. “InSight will study the interior of Mars and will teach us valuable science as we prepare to send astronauts to the Moon and later to Mars. This accomplishment represents the ingenuity of America and our international partners, and it serves as a testament to the dedication and perseverance of our team. The best of NASA is yet to come, and it is coming soon.”

The landing signal was relayed to NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in Pasadena, California, via NASA’s two small experimental Mars Cube One (MarCO) CubeSats, which launched on the same rocket as InSight and followed the lander to Mars. They are the first CubeSats sent into deep space. After successfully carrying out a number of communications and in-flight navigation experiments, the twin MarCOs were set in position to receive transmissions during InSight’s entry, descent and landing.

From Fast to Slow

“We hit the Martian atmosphere at 12,300 mph (19,800 kilometers per hour), and the whole sequence to touching down on the surface took only six-and-a-half minutes,” said InSight project manager Tom Hoffman at JPL. “During that short span of time, InSight had to autonomously perform dozens of operations and do them flawlessly – and by all indications that is exactly what our spacecraft did.”

Confirmation of a successful touchdown is not the end of the challenges of landing on the Red Planet. InSight’s surface-operations phase began a minute after touchdown. One of its first tasks is to deploy its two decagonal solar arrays, which will provide power. That process begins 16 minutes after landing and takes another 16 minutes to complete.

The InSight team expects a confirmation later Monday that the spacecraft’s solar panels successfully deployed. Verification will come from NASA’s Odyssey spacecraft, currently orbiting Mars. That signal is expected to reach InSight’s mission control at JPL about five-and-a-half hours after landing.

“We are solar powered, so getting the arrays out and operating is a big deal,” said Tom Hoffman at JPL. “With the arrays providing the energy we need to start the cool science operations, we are well on our way to thoroughly investigate what’s inside of Mars for the very first time.”

InSight will begin to collect science data within the first week after landing, though the teams will focus mainly on preparing to set InSight’s instruments on the Martian ground. At least two days after touchdown, the engineering team will begin to deploy InSight’s 5.9-foot-long (1.8-meter-long) robotic arm so that it can take images of the landscape.

“Landing was thrilling, but I’m looking forward to the drilling,” said InSight principal investigator Bruce Banerdt of JPL. “When the first images come down, our engineering and science teams will hit the ground running, beginning to plan where to deploy our science instruments. Within two or three months, the arm will deploy the mission’s main science instruments, the Seismic Experiment for Interior Structure (SEIS) and Heat Flow and Physical Properties Package (HP3) instruments.”

InSight will operate on the surface for one Martian year, plus 40 Martian days, or sols, until Nov. 24, 2020. The mission objectives of the two small MarCOs which relayed InSight’s telemetry was completed after their Martian flyby.

“That’s one giant leap for our intrepid, briefcase-sized robotic explorers,” said Joel Krajewski, MarCO project manager at JPL. “I think CubeSats have a big future beyond Earth’s orbit, and the MarCO team is happy to trailblaze the way.”

With InSight’s landing at Elysium Planitia, NASA has successfully soft-landed a vehicle on the Red Planet eight times.

“Every Mars landing is daunting, but now with InSight safely on the surface we get to do a unique kind of science on Mars,” said JPL director Michael Watkins. “The experimental MarCO CubeSats have also opened a new door to smaller planetary spacecraft. The success of these two unique missions is a tribute to the hundreds of talented engineers and scientists who put their genius and labor into making this a great day.”

JPL manages InSight for NASA’s Science Mission Directorate. InSight is part of NASA’s Discovery Program, managed by the agency’s Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama. The MarCO CubeSats were built and managed by JPL. Lockheed Martin Space in Denver built the InSight spacecraft, including its cruise stage and lander, and supports spacecraft operations for the mission.

A number of European partners, including France’s Centre National d’Études Spatiales (CNES) and the German Aerospace Center (DLR), are supporting the InSight mission. CNES, and the Institut de Physique du Globe de Paris (IPGP), provided the SEIS instrument, with significant contributions from the Max Planck Institute for Solar System Research (MPS) in Germany, the Swiss Institute of Technology (ETH) in Switzerland, Imperial College and Oxford University in the United Kingdom, and JPL. DLR provided the HP3 instrument, with significant contributions from the Space Research Center (CBK) of the Polish Academy of Sciences and Astronika in Poland. Spain’s Centro de Astrobiología (CAB) supplied the wind sensors.

The Pascagoula UFO Incident is one of my few remaining favourite cases mainly because the story is so out there it could just be true , Calvin Parker and his friend Charlie Hickson claim to have had an encounter with a UFO and strange robotic creatures in 1973 while fishing the Pascagoula River.

Charlie Hickson wanted answers but Calvin Parker just wanted to forget about it and move on with his life.

The interview was aired yesterday and starts at about 25 min on the video.

Open Minds UFO Radio: Calvin Parker – The Pascagoula UFO Incident

OpenMindsTV
Published on Nov 20, 2018

Open Minds UFO Radio: Calvin Parker was 19 years old in 1973 when he and his friend Charles Hickson witnessed a UFO while fishing in Pascagoula Mississippi. They reported seeing strange creatures that took them into the craft and examined them. Terrified, they went to the police. Their story leaked, and the incident made headlines. Hickson, 42 years old at the time, was a family friend who had just gotten Parker a job. However, Parker wanted nothing to do with the publicity they were receiving and left town. He rarely spoke of the incident until now. With the release of his new book telling his side of the story, he is now doing interviews and a few appearances before he goes back to focusing on retirement and fishing.

Those who know the case may be interested in hearing the account of the incident from Calvin Parker while those who are new to it may be interested in the strangeness of the encounter.

Here’s a thread by karl 12 with some background on the incident for those new to the case.
www.abovetopsecret.com…

Copy of the recording of the pair discussing the incident between themselves recorded in secret by the police at the police station.

“They’re going to believe it one of these days. They’re going to believe it one of these days but it might be too late.”
This is the original recording where law enforcement officers let a tape recorder continue to record after these two men had given their incredible story. They did not know the recorder was running and the idea was to try to capture them in a lie by letting them continue to talk to each other in private.

Truth or fiction , you decide.

They did not know the recorder was running and the idea was to try to capture them in a lie by letting them continue to talk to each other in private. It did not work out the way they thought it would. The recording was really poor quality and what you hear is an attempt to clean up as much as possible. The day started off just like any other for Charles Hickson, 42, and Calvin Parker, Jr., 19. The men were co-workers at the nearby shipyard and planned to go fishing after work. At around 9 pm, while fishing off the west bank of the Pascagoula River, Hickson and Parker’s strange ordeal began.
