Unknown Object in 1960 Photographs from Mercury-Redstone 1A

by Administrator on June 7, 2020

Case File Status: Unidentified

Originally Published: April 30, 2015. Updated June 7, 2020

Case File Summary

What are we looking at?: This is a photo taken by the Mercury Redstone 1A Mission launched on December 19, 1960.

Out of the 420 photos archived in ASU’s collection, there are multiple photos that capture, what appears to be, an unknown object, or possibly a craft, that shouldn’t be there.

In 1960, there wasn’t much in space, so what could this mysterious object be?

The Analysis

After posting this case file, I received a lot of feedback.  Those skeptical on the case proposed that it was a reflection of something inside the craft. So, I did a bit of analysis to see if that theory holds water.

I used 2 photos from the string above. Photo #MR-1A-9186-266 (B&W) and also Photo #MR-1A-9186-269 (Red Tint). I feel that you can discount this theory of a reflection, due to the fact the “reflection” does not appear in 2 of the photos in between these two frames in or near the spot, and also the theory ignores Photo #MR-1A-9186-268 which may show the object much farther in the background.

But, for sake of argument, we will dismiss those photos and deal with the two argued as a reflection. I used, what I believe, is the only constant (non-moving) object in the frame of photos – the reflection of the mission clock. The spacecraft is moving, so therefore, objects on the outside of the spacecraft would be moving their position in the frame as well.  Matching the clock on the photos, would show what was constant inside the craft as it would appear in the same exact position, and what was ‘moving’ outside the craft therefore being in different positions as the spacecraft moved.

Please read the rest of the article … and view the analytical photos … at The Black Vault.

I love this sort of stuff!

There is nothing better than the unknown!

Aldabra white-throated rail bird

An extinct bird just ‘evolved itself’ back into existence

The Aldabra hasn’t existed in almost 100,000 years. Now it’s back

By Thomas Shambler
18 May 2020

The Aldabra white-throated rail bird was declared extinct, a victim of rising sea levels almost 100,000 years ago.

However, the flightless brown bird has recently been spotted – leaving scientists scratching their heads as to how – and why – the species has come back to life.

According to research in the Zoological Journal of Linnean Society, the re-incarnated Aldabra bird is a product of ‘iterative evolution’. That’s when old genes thought to have died out re-emerge at a different point in time.

That means that while a bird’s ancestors might have disappeared, that DNA still remains – and provided the environment is right, there’s nothing to stop those ancient genes from replicating in modern times.

So identical species can indeed produce multiple, slightly evolved offshoots, throughout the course of their species’ history.

But don’t get your hopes up that this means dinosaurs and wooly mammoths will be popping up next. This scientific phenomenon only occurs within species that are nearly identical to their ancestors.

While iterative evolution has previously occurred in species such as turtles, it has never been seen in the realm of birds.

“We know of no other example in the rails, or of birds in general, that demonstrates this phenomenon so evidently,” said paleobiologist David Martill, in a statement.

“Only on the Aldabra, which has the oldest paleontological record of any oceanic island within the Indian Ocean region, is fossil evidence available that demonstrates the effects of changing sea levels on extinction and recolonization events.”

2020 was already an interesting and confusing year. Looks like now we have to contend with re-materializing birds, as well.

This is fascinating. And rather exciting, too. At least, to me it is. I have always loved this sort of thing; and the more exotic and rare the occurrence, the more I like it. Because discovery and new knowledge is what it’s all about. accompanied always by renewed wisdom, of course.

 

Hubble Space Telescope is 30 Today and to Celebrate it’s Taken a Picture of the Cosmic Reef

30 years ago today the Hubble telescope took its place in space as our eye in the sky peering out into the Universe , 30 years of discovery and mind boggling pictures from the dawn of creation , to celebrate the anniversary the Hubble team have imaged the “Cosmic Reef” , two Stellar nebulae in our neighboring Large Magellanic Cloud.

The accompanying video takes a closer look


This science visualization presents the dramatic landscape of two nebulas in the Large Magellanic Cloud. The video, based on images by NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope, takes viewers on a close-up tour of the nebulas’ three-dimensional structures, as envisioned by scientists and artists.

The movie begins with the Hubble view of NGC 2014 (lower left) and NGC 2020 (upper right). The region has been nicknamed the “Cosmic Reef,” because of its resemblance to an undersea world. The camera then flies past myriad stars for a close-up look at NGC 2014. The first stop is the bubble of hot gas on the left that has a coral-like appearance. Energetic ultraviolet light from the system’s most massive stars has heated the gas, while strong stellar winds (streams of charged particles) help create its bubble structure.

The journey continues into the heart of the nebula, home to extraordinarily massive and bright stars. The glowing gas in this region is bathed in the stars’ intense luminosity. In contrast, the dark, denser gas is resisting that radiation, and is blown back to form craggy, mountainous shapes. The virtual flight moves past ridges, valleys, and pockets of new star formation.

The camera then rises up and over a ridge of NGC 2014, revealing the three-dimensional structure of neighboring NGC 2020. The Wolf-Rayet star at its core is the mammoth, intensely hot source of this nebula. Episodes of outbursts from the young star have produced cloudy rings and clumps in the bright blue gas. While Hubble views NGC 2020 looking down the axis of the stellar outflows, the visualization finishes with a side view that illustrates the nebula’s double-lobed structure.

The world’s largest non-polar desert, is actually the widespread burial grounds of countless, mysteriously unknown, ancient ruins & civilizations, that have long since been forgotten, having been consumed and hidden by the sands of time, thousands of years ago. And here’s the thing…when I say “thousands of years ago”…that’s the part where things start to get really strange…

True Facts – True Facts About The Octopus

Octopi and the rest of the cephalopods are profoundly fascinating creatures who’s intelligence is legend and who’s shapeshifting and camouflage abilities put our Odo to shame. The makeup, including their unique gene structure — have compelled many learned scholars and researchers to conclude that they did not originate on this earth

Which is the coolest thing out there, as far as I’m concerned.

NASA’s Juno spacecraft captured the image on Feb. 17, 2020 and sent it back nearly 500 million miles for us to marvel at.

At the time of the picture the spacecraft was around 15,000 miles from the cloud tops.

Some notable features in this view are the long, thin bands that run through the center of the image from top to bottom. Juno has observed these long streaks since its first close pass by Jupiter in 2016. The streaks are layers of haze particles that float above the underlying cloud features. Scientists don’t yet know exactly what these hazes are made of or how they form. Two jet streams in Jupiter’s atmosphere flank either side of the region where the narrow bands of haze typically appear, and some researchers speculate those jet streams may influence the formation of the high hazes.

The streaks are layers of haze particles that float above the underlying cloud features. Scientists don’t yet know exactly what these hazes are made of or how they form.

For me the most intriguing part of the picture are the streaks that form in the upper atmosphere , it has been theorised that life could exist in the cloud layers of Jupiter feeding on the chemicals in the cloud layers and gaining access to precious Sunlight , perhaps the streaks are something akin to algal bloom seen in Earths oceans , it could be the streaks are our first look at Jovian life.

Just a thought.

NASA’s Curiosity rover captured its highest-resolution panorama yet of the Martian surface between Nov. 24 and Dec. 1, 2019. A version without the rover contains nearly 1.8 billion pixels; a version with the rover contains nearly 650 million pixels. Both versions are composed of more than 1,000 images that were carefully assembled over the following months.

The rover’s Mast Camera, or Mastcam, used its telephoto lens to produce the panorama and relied on its medium-angle lens to produce a lower-resolution panorama that includes the rover’s deck and robotic arm.

Malin Space Science Systems in San Diego built and operates Mastcam. A division of Caltech, NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory manages the Mars Science Laboratory mission for the agency’s Science Mission Directorate in Washington and built the Curiosity rover.

Curiosity Mars Rover Snaps 1.8 Billion-Pixel Panorama (narrated video)

NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory
Mar 4, 2020

NASA Curiosity Project Scientist Ashwin Vasavada guides this tour of the rover’s view of the Martian surface. This panorama showcases “Glen Torridon,” a region on the side of Mount Sharp that Curiosity is exploring. The panorama was taken between Nov. 24 and Dec. 1, 2019, when the Curiosity team was out for the Thanksgiving holiday. Since the rover would be sitting still with few other tasks to do while it waited for the team to return and provide its next commands, the rover had a rare chance to image its surroundings several days in a row without moving. Composed of more than 1,000 images and carefully assembled over the ensuing months, the larger version of this composite contains nearly 1.8 billion pixels of Martian landscape.

Scientist Predicts Higher Forms Of Alien Life on Europa

It’s ‘almost a racing certainty’ there’s alien life on Jupiter’s moon Europa—and Mars could be hiding primitive microorganisms, too. That’s the view of leading British space scientist Professor Monica Grady, who says the notion of undiscovered life in our galaxy isn’t nearly as far-fetched as we might expect.

Professor Grady, a Professor of Planetary and Space Science, says the frigid seas beneath Europa’s ice sheets could harbor ‘octopus’ like creatures. Meanwhile the deep caverns and caves found on Mars may also hide subterranean life-forms—as they offer shelter from intense solar radiation while also potentially boasting remnants of ice.

Professor Grady was speaking at Liverpool Hope University, where she’s just been installed as Chancellor, and revealed: “When it comes to the prospects of life beyond Earth, it’s almost a racing certainty that there’s life beneath the ice on Europa.”

“Elsewhere, if there’s going to be life on Mars, it’s going to be under the surface of the planet. “There you’re protected from solar radiation. And that means there’s the possibility of ice remaining in the pores of the rocks, which could act as a source of water.”

“If there is something on Mars, it’s likely to be very small—bacteria.”

“But I think we’ve got a better chance of having slightly higher forms of life on Europa, perhaps similar to the intelligence of an octopus.”

Well, if that’s the case then the universe could be teeming with life and probably advanced civilizations far ahead of us in technology that would perhaps seem like magic to us. One scientist said that there are more advanced civilizations partying around the universe than there are grains of sand on planet earth!!

I wouldn’t go that far but there is probably more life out there than we can ever imagine!

phys.org…

EnceladusI would go that far. Life teems. It’s the only thing life knows how to do. Just look at our own world, there’s life deep underground…inside the rocks…and they just found life inside the Chernobyl reactor that eats the radiation.

So, yes, absolutely, life is everywhere — and I use the word everywhere quite literally.

I love this stuff. We need to stop killing each other and get out in space! And hey, there is also Enceladus!

 

 

This is a few years old now but some may not know about it.

These cities were vast and they all interconnected with roads. One of my favorite things about it is the recent idea that the immense Amazon rainforest itself is the result of the overgrowth of these people’s farms and gardens after their civilization collapsed. The idea came from the fact that the majority of flora in the Amazon are fruit-bearing. I love that…

Each of these little cells is the size of Texas, for reference. First images from the National Science Foundation’s Daniel K. Inouye Solar Telescope reveal unprecedented detail of the Sun’s surface and preview the world-class products to come from this preeminent 4-meter solar telescope. Full story: newatlas.com/space/boiling-su…

newatlas.com…

The first images and videos are in from the National Science Foundation’s Daniel K. Inouye Solar Telescope, and they show the bubbling, explosive surface of our sun in unprecedented detail. The sheer scale, beauty and violence is breathtaking.

The telescope, positioned on the summit of Mt. Haleakala in Hawaii, has been a 10-year planning and construction project. It uses a huge 13-foot (4 m) mirror, the biggest ever used on a solar telescope, and its curved shape and other optical elements focus a huge 13 kilowatts of solar power, creating enormous heat. Cooling is provided by a “liquid-cooled metal donut,” and it features adaptive optics designed to compensate for the blurring introduced by the Earth’s atmosphere at high resolutions.

As a result, it’s the most advanced solar telescope ever built, and capable of rendering clear images of solar features as small as 20-30 km (12-18 mi) in size. Now, the first images are out, and they show the turbulent plasma of the sun’s surface in magnificent detail.

Each of the cell-like structures in the images and video shown here is around the size of Texas, or about 700 miles (~1,100 km) across. The video at the bottom of the page shows how they rise and fall in the space of just 10 minutes. For a sense of scale, that video covers a width of the solar surface equal to about one and a half times the diameter of the Earth, or about 1/73rd of the diameter of the sun itself.

Triangle UFO of Kaikoura

Kaikoura ufo

UAPleaks
Sep 15, 2019

Hello and welcome to: Triangle UFO of Kaikoura ©

We disclose this information for no reason other than to inform the filmcrew, pilot and co-pilot of what they really witnessed four decades ago. We hope to draw the interest of those who were involved. The people that were present DESERVE TO KNOW THE TRUTH as the New Zealand Defence Force has restricted access to the original case files till the year 2040 / 2050.

On the 31st of December 1978 a filmteam went on board of an Argossy airplane for an interview with the crew. On the 20th and 21st of December another aircraft had reported several UFO and this was the reason for the interview by Mr. Fogarty and his crew. The pilot – and co-pilot were not the ones that had reported the event. Only ten minutes into the flight their was a first UFO encounter. The cameraman quickly changed the lens of his camera to a 100 mm / 240 mm zoomlens and after midnight on the 1st of January 1979 he filmed several UFO that during the entire flight followed and approached the plane. He recorded the UFO from the windows of the cockpit and the presence of these unidentified flying objects were also confirmed by Wellington Radar and Airtraffic Control.

This event is commonly known as the Kaikoura UFO Mystery and the journalist, Mr. Quentin Fogarty, wrote a beautiful book about it titled: Let’s Hope They Are Friendly. Interesting fact: Mr. Fogarty saw something with his eyes that the old video does not not show you.
He mentioned in the video that the UFO appeared to be “rolling and turning.” So was he right?

No one knew that the original 16 mm film still existed. Fogarty’s crew had some very bad (personal) experiences after their film had been shown in the media. They have been ridiculed and called fantasists. As most of the reactions about their eye-witness report were negative, in some cases hostile, despite its importance this film was never supposed to be published! Flux, one of our team members, who lives in New Zealand performed his own in-depth research into the Kaikoura UFO and his good nose led him in 2015 to the original 16 mm film.

Long story short: The 16 mm had been digitized by a top notch film laboratory and our team received 4 High Definition videos of Blue-Ray quality. We almost fainted as they arrived as for the first time we had UFO material of the best possible quality. After you have watched the presentation you will agree that the bright object can no longer be dismissed with a simple
explanation and you will understand why this UFO encounter frightened them and afterwards had such an enormous impact on their lives.

For the past 40 years these UFO only lived in their memory but they never knew what they really looked like in full close up… until today! Without Flux’s curiosity the world never would have seen what you are about to see.

We dedicate this presentation to all who were present that night and witnessed a UFO encounter. This presentation does not provide any answer to the question what these UFO are! We only provide undeniable visual evidence that they exist.

Enjoy the show!

Yours truly,

Image Analysis Team

Without explicit permission of the owner(s) the Image Analysis Team (IAT) is prohibited to provide information to the whereabouts of the original 16mm film nor may she share any of the original material that has been provided for analysis. IAT is not the owner / maker of the original material and according to Australian- and New Zealand law this copyright remains in force until the 31st of December 2028.

You may only embed and distribute the full video. You are prohibited to make any alterations to this presentation. You are prohibited from making commercial use of the (enhanced) images and videomaterial © and this includes all monetization programmes on Youtube and any other social media. If you wish to make use of this presentation contact UAPleaks / 1967sander.

United Nations resolution 59, states that Freedom of Information is an integral part of our fundamental right to inform. We consider the Kaikoura UFO film of major importance to mankind and this unique encounter must be told through any media and regardless of frontiers. UAPleaks has no financial benefit from this disclosure

This, folks, is excellent and I applaud the effort as no one would have ever known about this as the regime in New Zealand are the censorship leaders of all countries and of all time. They go nuts in censoring anything and everything even remotely unusual, including restricting access to sites and not permitting research into the ancient civilization present long before the Maori ever showed up. And just like in this case everything is verboten for decades. It’s a crying shame and a crime against humanity.

Well, we get to see this and it is pretty darn cool.

This team has released a second part to this. Make of it what you will. See my note at the bottom.

It is here:

Kaikoura The Second Encounter

UAPleaks
Jan 11, 2020

Dear friends,

Welcome to Kaikoura The Second Encounter … which actually is the 5th encounter! 😉

Why we named this UAP “Apple” will become clear once you have seen this presentation but … that is not all as for the first time in human history we not only managed to enhance a UAP but also revealed the “ALIEN” in the UAP.

The first part of this video “briefly” describes the major technological challenges we faced trying to enhance this UAP.

The second part contains the first enhancements revealing the controller and the last part shows the final result and there is a small bonus …

However: We must warn you! We strongly advise viewer discretion!

The ALIEN is “clearly visible” but for some of you it may take some time to recognize it. This creature is something you have never seen before and your brain therefore will not immediately be able to identify the shape.

– When you watch the images try not to think of an alien as you may have seen it in the movies.
– Take at least 100 cm distance from the monitor as putting your nose against the screen will have a negative effect because of the noise. By stepping back from the monitor your brain will filter the noise in the image and the entire picture will become clearer and also gamut, borders between colours will be more distinct.
– Look at the colours, follow contours and see where they connect.
– Try to find any shapes which may look familiar.

Finally: When you are easily influenced by what you see in an image you better do not watch this video.

This will be your first encounter with a real ALIEN and this will not be your last.

See you soon for more.

Best regards,
UAPleaks & Image Analysis Team

Well, that is kind of interesting but the WARNINGs and capitalization of ALIEN are way over the top, very silly and they give me the most uncomfortable feelings regarding this crew … and even presenting this episode to you.

I am of the opinion that their new software is not much more, at least in this case, than an amplifier for the phenomena of pareidolia.

Controller? I don’t think so.

Bummed out, I am.

Ooh, I just love this… whenever new pieces of the puzzle are found I get a thrill.

You simply must know that there were at least as many species of all forms of life around back then as there are now… and due to the conditions present in those days potentially a lot more than exist today … the scarcity is simply because fossilization is not a common occurrence. Not in the least.

Astronomers at the European Southern Observatory based in in northern Chile have released high resolution images and the video below of the central region of our Galaxy , the observations give a new take for astronomers on the rate of Star formation in the early Galaxy and challenge the accepted theory that Star formation has been continuous throughout the history of the Milky way.

“Contrary to what had been accepted up to now, we found that the formation of stars has not been continuous,” adds Francisco Nogueras-Lara, who led two new studies of the Milky Way central region while at the same institute in Granada.

In the study, published today in Nature Astronomy, the team found that about 80% of the stars in the Milky Way central region formed in the earliest years of our galaxy, between eight and 13.5 billion years ago. This initial period of star formation was followed by about six billion years during which very few stars were born. This was brought to an end by an intense burst of star formation around one billion years ago when, over a period of less than 100 million years, stars with a combined mass possibly as high as a few tens of million Suns formed in this central region.

“The conditions in the studied region during this burst of activity must have resembled those in ‘starburst’ galaxies, which form stars at rates of more than 100 solar masses per year,” says Nogueras-Lara, who is now based at the Max Planck Institute for Astronomy in Heidelberg, Germany. At present, the whole Milky Way is forming stars at a rate of about one or two solar masses per year.

“This burst of activity, which must have resulted in the explosion of more than a hundred thousand supernovae, was probably one of the most energetic events in the whole history of the Milky Way,” he adds. During a starburst, many massive stars are created; since they have shorter lifespans than lower-mass stars, they reach the end of their lives much faster, dying in violent supernova explosions.

What an absolutely fabulous woman!

Joan Beauchamp Procter

Her best friend was a Komodo dragon and if that doesn’t entice you to read this, I don’t know what will.

Joan Beauchamp Procter

Joan Beauchamp Procter is a scientist every reptile enthusiast should admire.

Joan was an incredibly intelligent young woman who was chronically ill (and as a result of her chronic illness, physically disabled by her early thirties). Her health issues kept her from going to college, but that did not stop her from studying and keeping reptiles. She presented her first paper to the Zoological Society of London at the tender age of nineteen, and the society was so impressed that they hired her to help design their aquarium. In 1923, despite having no formal secondary education and despite being only 26 years old, she was hired as the London Zoo’s curator of reptiles.

Now, that in and of itself is an awesome accomplishment, but Joan was absolutely not content to maintain the status quo. Nosiree, by the age of 26 Joan had already kept many exotic pets (including a crocodile!) and knew a thing or two about what needed to be done to improve their lives in captivity.

So Joan got together with an architect, Edward Guy Dawber, and designed the world’s first building designed solely for the keeping of reptiles. She had some really, really great ideas. Her first big idea was to make the building differentially heated- different areas and enclosures would have different heat zones, instead of having the whole building heated to one warm temperature.

She also set up aquarium lighting- the gallery itself was dark, with dim lights on individual enclosures to make things less stressful for the inhabitants. She also insisted on the use of special glass that didn’t filter out UVB. This meant that reptiles could synthesize vitamin D and prevented cases of MBD in her charges.

The above is just a snip of the article… read it!

I so love this lady… so smart… so lovely… so wow!

143 New Nazca Lines Discovered in Peru with the help of A.I. Technology | Ancient Architects

Ancient Architects
Nov 18, 2019

Huge thanks to Michael Wolf for alerting me about this story!

A team of Japanese researchers from Yamagata University and IBM Research have discovered an incredible 143 stunning geoglyphs, etched into the desert in southern Peru around the enigmatic Nazca Lines.

It is yet another example of how technology is assisting archaeology because a number of images were found using state-of-the-art AI technology developed by IBM, finds that were then confirmed with an on-site investigations.

The geoglyphs include humans, birds, camels, cats and other animals and were found between 2016 and 2018. They were identified through fieldwork and analysing high-resolution 3D data and aerial photography. Incredibly, one geoglyph in particular was solely discovered with AI technology, without the aid of humans, making it the first geoglyph discovered by an AI.

Back in April 2018 I reported in a video that Peruvian archaeologists in the Palpa province of Peru had discovered more than 50 new geoglyphs (youtu.be/gpkc7-9_604) so this new discovery by the Japanese team builds on the ever-expanding line of study.

Watch this video to learn more and please Like, Subscribe and Comment below!

All images are taken from Yamagata University. Please visit www.yamagata-u.ac.jp/en/infor… for full detailed information on the new discoveries.

This is a pleasant bit of news, I must say. I love it when new pieces of the puzzle are discovered!

The Secret Failed Soviet Moon Landing

Dark Docs

Subscribe to Dark Docs – bitly.com/DarkDocs

At the height of the Space Race, the United States and the Soviet Union bitterly tried to outdo one another, each attempting to be the first to succeed in a number of scientific and exploratory challenges. In the beginning the Soviets won many of the ‘firsts’, such as launching the first craft to enter Earth’s orbit, Sputnik 1 in October 1957, sending to space the first living animal, Laika, on Sputnik 2 in November 1957, and putting the first man in orbit with Yuri Gagarin’s mission in April 1961.

In fact, by most accounts, the USSR was even ahead of the United States in sending the first man to the moon by the time US president John F. Kennedy’s famous “We choose to go” speech in 1962. The Soviets had already landed the Luna 2 probe on the moon’s surface in 1959, and they were in the middle of developing a manned-mission that was strikingly similar to the US effort. Yet, that early success would eventually be forgotten as the Soviet Union buried their final moon missions in secrecy. Because just as Neil Armstrong was setting foot on the lunar surface on July 20, 1969, the Luna 15 lander was crashing into the other side of the moon. It is a story the Soviets did not want the world to know…

Navy Pilot sees “dark mass” take torpedo……

Navy Pilot David Fravor claimed on Oct. 5th that a mystery “dark mass” emerged from the ocean and swallowed a torpedo whole. He also claims another Navy Pilot had something like this happen off the coast of Puerto Rico in the 1990’s.

He described what happened:

As they hoist the BQM [torpedo] up, he’s looking at this thing going, ‘What the hell is that?’ And then it just goes back down underwater. “Once they pull the kid and the BQM out of the water, this object descends back into the depths.” While the other pilot thought the incident was strange, indicating some skepticism, the same thing happened a few months later, Fravor claimed. “He’s out picking up a torpedo, they hook the diver up on the winch, and as they’re lowering him down, he sees this big mass,” Fravor said. “He goes, ‘It’s not a submarine,’ he’s seen submarines before, once you’ve seen a submarine you can’t confuse it with something else.” “This big object, kind of circular, is coming up from the depths and he starts screaming through the intercom system to tell them to pull the diver up, and the diver’s only a few feet from the water,” he added. “They reverse the winch and the diver’s thinking: ‘What the hell is going on?’ And all of a sudden he said the torpedo just got sucked down underwater, and the object just descended back down into the depths.”

Fravor said the torpedo was never recovered and was adamant the torpedo didn’t sink and was “sucked down.”
Fravor had an encounter with a ufo while with the USS Nimitz in 2004, and he described the object he saw as “something not from this world.”

Fravor said the object was flying around a patch of white water in the ocean below. “A white Tic Tac, about the same size as a Hornet, 40 feet long with no wings,” Fravor described. “Just hanging close to the water.” “As I get closer, as my nose is starting to pull back up, it accelerates and it’s gone,” he said. “Faster than I’d ever seen anything in my life. We turn around, say let’s go see what’s in the water and there’s nothing. Just blue water.” “I don’t think I was a nut-job as an officer in the Navy. I wasn’t drunk, I don’t do drugs. I got a good night’s rest, it was a clear day,” he said. “I think someone should have looked into it. Having talked to some of the other folks, it’s a big frustration that it’s coming out now and wasn’t discussed back in 2004.” While Fravor is often ridiculed for his theories, the U.S. Navy recently admitted that a series of UFO videos are real.

Fravor talks about this encounter at the 54:38 mark of the video:

Note: on the last episode of the great show called “Contact” on Discovery and the Science Channel they talked about USOs, and it was presented in the last episode that the Navy actually has underwater listening posts stationed around the world to monitor for USOs.

Holy Cow! I would give anything to see this. I have felt for a long time after reading decades of sighting reports that there is some sort of lifeform of a highly advanced nature that is extant in the depths of our oceans. After all that data input it is pretty difficult to deny.

It is one of the most fascinating mysteries that I have encountered. May we someday see video and more information.

The Yi Qi

Art by Emily A. Willoughby

Yi qi – May 2015

Medium: Gouache & digital composite
Time taken: 20 hours
Published in: Wikipedia
High resolution: Purchase print

2-day gouache painting of Yi qi, the bizarre new membrane-winged scansoriopterygid. I wanted to see what the membrane would look like attaching further down on the body than in nearly every depiction I’ve seen so far, which show it attaching on the flank or at the armpit. I can’t get behind a leg-attachment point for this critter; it makes more sense to me that a long-legged animal would want its legs free and flexible. If a sprawling mobile hip-joint can be established for scansors, I’d potentially change my stance on that. Anyway, here’s a semi-new interpretation amidst a flood of recent restorations.

I’m definitely not convinced of powered flight for this critter, so here it is in an extended leap onto a log in pursuit of a Tiaojishan archisargid fly, Calosarugus.

Awesome! Loving it. =D

possible champ animal ©2019 Katy Elizabeth

This, folks, is an exceptionally exciting image.

It was captured by my friend, full-time cryptozoologist Katy Elizabeth, on the sonar unit in her research vessel “Kelpie.”

That shape is undeniably suggestive of an aquatic animal. It’s rather sizeable, as well. It is, after all is said and done, a mighty fine shape to these old eyes.

Champ SearchI am sure there will be more of these. It is terribly unfortunate for our collective, vision-based minds that the waters of Lake Champlain are murky with dense plant life, as it makes photography a serious challenge.

I am digging the apparent resolution on her sonar gizmo, though. It is mighty good.

Visit Champ Search, eh.

The photography issue is a cultural “big one,” for some, but it’s just going to have to be … we shall proceed like modern astronomers … who use wacky wavelengths, occultations and spectrometrics to capture their prey … hey, man, we can watch our prey up close in real time, eh, what! Ha! Haha!

marstruecolor

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!

China’s Chang’e-4 lunar rover is currently exploring the Far Side of the Moon , all was going as expected until on July 28th when preparing to power the rover down one of the Chang’e-4 team noticed something peculiar , a different coloured area in a crater.

The team decided to change their plan and drive over to the area to investigate , they discovered an unusually coloured “substance” in the crater.

The drive team, excited by the discovery, called in their lunar scientists. Together, the teams decided to postpone Yutu-2’s plans to continue west and instead ordered the rover to check out the strange material

With the help of obstacle-avoidance cameras, Yutu-2 carefully approached the crater and then targeted the unusually colored material and its surroundings. The rover examined both areas with its Visible and Near-Infrared Spectrometer (VNIS), which detects light that is scattered or reflected off materials to reveal their makeup.

So far, mission scientists haven’t offered any indication as to the nature of the colored substance and have said only that it is “gel-like” and has an ­“unusual color.” One possible explanation, outside researchers suggested, is that the substance is melt glass created from meteorites striking the surface of the moon.

dragonflyI can’t wait to see the results of this mission on my screen! It’s gonna be good! Long time to wait, though, eh.

NASA Will Fly Quadcopter On Saturn’s Largest Moon Looking For Signs Of Life

The quadcopter will be looking for prebiotic chemical processes common on both Titan and Earth. Dragonfly will be the first time NASA operates a multi-rotor vehicle for space exploration on another planet; it is classified as rotorcraft, has eight rotors and flies like a drone. Flying will be difficult and will use a lot of energy. This is because of Titan’s atmosphere is four times thicker than Earth’s.

Sometime in 2034, Dragonfly will land at the equatorial “Shangri-La” dune fields, which are similar to dunes in Namibia in southern Africa. For the next three years, Dragonfly will leapfrog around the moon, 5 miles at a time. At the end of its mission, it will reach the Selk impact crater, where there could be evidence of water and possible life.

I expect they want a safe landing spot thus what they are calling a desert is their first drop off point?
www.zerohedge.com…

www.nasa.gov…

NASA has announced that our next destination in the solar system is the unique, richly organic world Titan. Advancing our search for the building blocks of life, the Dragonfly mission will fly multiple sorties to sample and examine sites around Saturn’s icy moon.

Dragonfly will launch in 2026 and arrive in 2034. The rotorcraft will fly to dozens of promising locations on Titan looking for prebiotic chemical processes common on both Titan and Earth. Dragonfly marks the first time NASA will fly a multi-rotor vehicle for science on another planet; it has eight rotors and flies like a large drone. It will take advantage of Titan’s dense atmosphere – four times denser than Earth’s – to become the first vehicle ever to fly its entire science payload to new places for repeatable and targeted access to surface materials.

Titan is an analog to the very early Earth, and can provide clues to how life may have arisen on our planet. During its 2.7-year baseline mission, Dragonfly will explore diverse environments from organic dunes to the floor of an impact crater where liquid water and complex organic materials key to life once existed together for possibly tens of thousands of years. Its instruments will study how far prebiotic chemistry may have progressed. They also will investigate the moon’s atmospheric and surface properties and its subsurface ocean and liquid reservoirs. Additionally, instruments will search for chemical evidence of past or extant life.

“With the Dragonfly mission, NASA will once again do what no one else can do,” said NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine.

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!
