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).

The Moon Eclipsing near Pleiades

This was taken before the peak of the eclipse because clouds rolled in. This is a composite image where the star field was shot during the last new moon to make the stars pop here. The Moon was also taken with a telescope to get more surface details and blended in as well.

Hidden cameras expose Kim Jong-un’s clandestine weapon and drugs trade | 60 Minutes Australia

60 Minutes Australia
Mar 29, 2021

Like a petulant child who doesn’t get its way, North Korea likes to throw tantrums. A few days ago the rogue state reminded the world how troublesome it is by launching several short-range missiles in the first weapons tests since President Joe Biden took office, sending a sharp message to the new US administration. But behind the aggression, dictator Kim Jong-un is in serious trouble as his regime teeters on bankruptcy. Tom Steinfort, one of the few western journalists to have reported from the hermit kingdom on multiple occasions, says North Korea desperately needs cash and is willing to do almost anything to get it, even selling weapons and drugs on the black market. Now though, these long-suspected crimes have been fully exposed by the unlikely combination of an extraordinary hidden-camera sting and a heartbroken family determined to get justice for their son, who travelled to North Korea for an adventure holiday but ended up imprisoned and tortured to death.

Totally heinous horseshit from North Korea.

We found a wild Goblin

Part 2 of the Wales Trip. ( Part 1 here youtu.be/BhypaOgXuck ) [And here, too – Ed.]

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.

By buying my artwork, it will enable me to put more resources into making videos and growing the channel. I am very grateful to anyone that helps in this way. I have some new sketches on Ebay for sale www.ebay.co.uk/usr/lynncornwall and a new Shaman Lino cut print on Big Cartel erwinsaunders.bigcartel.com Also there is Redbubble. www.redbubble.com/people/Erwi…

Wow! Yes, Wow!

Erwin and Tom score big time! Filming a Goblin is just as cool as filming a Pixie, eh?

Dig it.

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.

Camionero capta un enorme OVNI en forma de cigarro sobre el puerto de Paita en Perú

Las imágenes de este clip de vídeo fueron captadas a las 5:53 a.m. del 21 de octubre pasado en la ciudad peruana de Paita. Los camioneros que se encontraban en la zona industrial de la ciudad porteña a la espera de fletar sus vehículos se dieron cuenta del hecho, y uno de ellos grabó con su teléfono móvil el incidente.

The images in this video clip were captured at 5:53 a.m. on October 21 in the Peruvian city of Paita. The truckers who were in the industrial zone of the Buenos Aires city waiting to charter their vehicles realized the fact, and one of them recorded the incident with his mobile phone.

Kind of a nice one, methinks. That’s one hefty tictac, paddywhack.

“Isolated Araneiform Topography”

This image of the south pole was taken by HiRISE on (87.123°S, 126.291°E) on March 24th, 2007. Araneiform comes “aranea” (Latin) meaning spider; the HiRISE team saw these channels, carved into the surface by CO2 gas erupting from the ground, and thought they looked spider-like. They form after CO2 sublimates as the seasons change causing a build up a gas below the surface. Eventually the surface ruptures, creating these features. To me they look more like neurons but I can see their resemblence to spiders.

The width of this image is about 1 km.

A Martian frog perched on a rock? A rover track in the sand provides scale. Pareidolia is a wonderful human trait 😉

NASA’s Mars Perseverance rover acquired this image using its Left Mastcam-Z camera. Mastcam-Z is a pair of cameras located high on the rover’s mast.

This image was acquired on Sep. 26, 2021 (Sol 214) at the local mean solar time of 12:06:36.

Lightly processed to bring it closer to calibrated colours and sharpened to highlight the terrain.

There are 48 cleats (treads) on each wheel, these are spaced at intervals of 3.44 centimeters (1.35 inches). So 10 tread marks = 34.4 cm or 13.5 inches 🙂 Makes a handy scale tool for measuring frogs rocks

When I stumble upon this pic, the first thing I thought was if nature can carve out a niche for this frog, chances are it’s carved out a niche or 3 for some other unusual life form….

reminds me of the toad from Mario Bros

A very strange toad. May well be the strangest I have encountered, actually. Plus it is fabulous in it’s visual impact. Thing looks cool. And I agree, it just illustrates the unlimited possibilities of life and the likelihood that they are out there in the flesh.

1971 UFO photos taken from USS Trepang SSN 674

July 9, 2015 By JEAN FRANCOIS CLOUTIER Updated: Aug 5, 2016 @ 20:16

A set of UFO images taken in the Arctic and believed to date from 1971 is currently igniting the various conspiratorial and paranormal discussion forums around the world.

The images are believed to have been taken from the submarine USS Trepang SSN 674 while it was traveling between Iceland and Jan Mayen Island in Norway. Several UFO hunters say the photographs are evidence of secret US aircraft tests, while others claim they are alien craft looking for places to drill for oil.

Alex Mistretta, a paranormal investigator, studied the images after their first appearance in French paranormal magazine Top Secret , according to Black Vault . Mistretta claims that his source told him that the photos were taken from the American submarine, under the leadership of Admiral Dean Reynolds Sackett, Jr .

Official documents seem to confirm this claim, but the information is so readily available that some have said it does not prove the validity of the images. An inscription on one of the photos reads: “Official Photograph. Not to be Released. CT ”Another:“ Unauthorized Disclosure Subject. Security Certificate (sic) SSN 674. Criminal Sanction ”.

Commentator Bill Smillie suggests that all the images may be of a single object that has the ability to change shape, according to news published in The Express . “This is a selection of photos that feature types of UFOs that have been regularly spotted by witnesses in all parts of the world,” said Nigel Watson, author of UFO Investigations Manua .

“Cigar-shaped or airship-shaped spaceships have been reported since 1896 when there was a large wave of ‘ghost’ airship sightings across the United States.” Watson notes that explorer Benjamin Trueblood had seen it on a polar expedition in 1908, the Eskimos he encountered were keen to talk about an airship they had seen. “I am not sure of their authenticity,” says Watson. “There are definitely going to be ufologists who are going to scratch their heads and speculate that UFOs have a base in arctic regions,” he concludes.
