EXTRATERRESTRIAL MEMES: Scientists Make Astonishing Discovery Of 'Ghost Particle' In Earth's Atmosphere - Is It Proof Of Alien Life?!

January 25, 2015 -  SPACE
 - A group of astrobiologists at the Universities of Sheffield and Buckingham have released the image of the specter-looking particle to the Daily Express. The particle, which is 10 microns in width or approximately as thick as a single strand of human hair, resembles a wisp of smoke or a chiffon scarf, earning for it the nickname ghost particle.

Prof. Milton Wainwright of the University of Sheffield speculates that the ghost particle is a "living balloon" that once carried alien organisms. He also believes that the particle, which appears to be in its "deflated" state, could be inflated by these organisms using gases that are lighter than air to allow it to float in air or seas of unknown environments.

"This is nothing short of a New Year's present from outer space," Wainwright says.

In a paper published in the Journal of Cosmology, Wainwright and his colleagues say the ghost particle is actually the cell wall (frustule) of a type of microscopic algae called diatom. In July last year, the researchers sent balloons 14 to 17 miles (22 to 27 kilometers) into the Earth's atmosphere to collect samples of particles in the stratosphere. The ghost particle, the researchers believe, may have been delivered by a comet.

"Most people will assume that these biological particles must have just drifted up to the stratosphere from Earth, but it is generally accepted that a particle of the size found cannot be lifted from Earth to heights of, for example, 27 kilometers," says Wainwright. "The only known exception is by a violent volcanic eruption, none of which occurred within three years of the sampling trip."

Skeptics, however, exist. Seth Shostak, astronomer at the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence in Mountain View, California, says the idea that life is distributed throughout the universe by being transported by objects such as comets, a notion called panspermia, is credible, at least over short distances, such as in solar systems. Shostak, however, says Wainwright's claims will have to stand up to scrutiny by the wider scientific community.

"In the past, most members of the astrobiology community have found it easier to ascribe these claims to terrestrial contamination than to extraterrestrial hitchhikers," Shostak says. "It remains to be seen whether that opinion will be changed by these new results."

However, Wainwright insists that the ghost particle, which is made up of carbon and oxygen, did not originate from the Earth. He says the particle appeared on the sampling stub in "absolutely pristine condition" with no traces of contamination by Earth particles, such as pollen, grass, or pollution particles. He also points to the impact craters the particles made on the sampling stub as further proof of their space origin.

Astrobiologist Chris McKay of the Ames Research Center of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) is looking for more proof than that. Although he says it is likely the researchers discovered "curious stuff" in the atmosphere, he still subscribes to the Carl Sagan principle that "extraordinary claims require extraordinary proof."

One example of extraordinary proof McKay is looking for could be a biochemical indication that the ghost particle does not share biochemistry with life on Earth.

"If they were able to show that it was composed of all D amino acids (proteins in Earth life are made of L amino acids), that would be pretty convincing to me," McKay says.

Wainwright says he and his team are planning to conduct further studies on the ghost particle, such as finding the ratios of various isotopes, or the varieties of elements with different neutron numbers in the atomic nuclei. If the ratio of isotopes gives a certain number, the particle is from space; if it gives another, it is from Earth.

Last year, Russian scientists announced that they discovered traces of diatomic plankton on the surface and illuminators of the International Space Station (ISS). Although NASA dismissed the report, Russian ISS orbital mission chief Vladimir Solovyev said that it was the first time plankton was discovered in space. However, it isn't clear up to now how the particles have appeared on the ISS. - Tech Times.

CONSPIRACY: Life On Mars Or Mars Landing Hoax - NASA's Curiosity Rover Photo "Shows" Human "Non-Terrestrial Officer" Performing Maintenance On Mars?!

January 25, 2015 -  MARS
 - Going by the claims of a UFO researcher, we might have obtained the first photographic “evidence” of hacker Gary McKinnon’s claim that he found “fleet-to-fleet” cargo transfer records relating to the ET technology-based “off-world” space operations of U.S. “Non-Terrestrial Officers.” Many in the “Truth movement” have believed Mars to be the “off-world” base of Pentagon’s “Non-Terrestrial Officers.”

According to an unnamed researcher who contacted UFO Sightings Daily’s Scot Warring, the NASA image shown below could be “evidence” backing McKinnon’s story.

Is This A NASA Engineer Pictured Performing Maintenance On Curiosity Rover?

We would recall that McKinnon was the hacker who was accused in 2002 of perpetrating, at his girlfriend’s aunt’s house in London, what was described then as the “biggest military computer hack of all times.”

The U.S. government accused him of hacking into nearly 100 military and NASA computer networks between February 2001 and March 2002, and shutting them down temporarily. But McKinnon later told reporters that he was looking for evidence of secret U.S. government records about UFOs and ET technologies that could prove beneficial to humanity but were being suppressed.

McKinnon claimed in an interview with Wired that he discovered files documenting the existence of up to 30 “non-extraterrestrial officers,” including information relating to their ranks. He also found records dealing with spaceship-to-spaceship cargo transfers of secret deep space missions.
“I knew that governments suppressed antigravity, UFO-related technologies, free energy or what they call zero-point energy… I also got access to Excel spreadsheets. One was titled ‘Non-Terrestrial Officers.’ It contained names and ranks of U.S. Air Force personnel who are not registered anywhere else. It also contained information about ship-to-ship transfers, but I’ve never seen the names of these ships noted anywhere else.”
Below is an excerpt from a 2005 Guardian interview with Mckinnon.
“‘What was the most exciting thing you saw?’ I ask.

‘I found a list of officers’ names,’ he claims, ‘under the heading “Non-Terrestrial Officers.”‘

‘Non-Terrestrial Officers?’I say.

‘Yeah, I looked it up,’ says Gary, ‘and it’s nowhere. It doesn’t mean little green men. What I think it means is not earth-based. I found a list of ‘fleet-to-fleet transfers,’ and a list of ship names. I looked them up. They weren’t US navy ships. What I saw made me believe they have some kind of spaceship, off-planet.’

‘The Americans have a secret spaceship?’ I ask.

‘That’s what this trickle of evidence has led me to believe.’

‘Some kind of other Mir that nobody knows about?’

‘I guess so,’ says Gary.

‘What were the ship names?’

‘I can’t remember,’ says Gary. ‘I was smoking a lot of dope at the time. Not good for the intellect.'”

The photo providing “new evidence” of the existence of McKinnon’s so-called “Non-Terrestrial Officers” manning “off-world” mission bases is one of a set of Curiosity rover Navcam photos from NASA’s JPL website taken on Sol 50, (2012-09-26 13:59:04 UTC), UFO Sightings Daily reports.

A Human Technician Performing Maintenance On The Rover?

“Non-Terrestrial Officer” Photographed On Mars?

“This came in the email this morning. Someone who wants to remain nameless has found a shadow of a human-like being messing with the Mars Curiosity rover. The person has no helmet and their short hair is visible and in high detail. The person has on air tanks on their back and a suit that covers most of the body except the hair.”
The photo shows what the researcher believes is a human-like being in a spacesuit fitted with an air-tank on his back. But, curiously, he is not wearing a spacesuit headgear and his short hair is visible.

The fact that other photos of the set showing the same view of the rover do not show the human-like figure suggests that the shape is not part of the rover, according to Mars anomaly researchers.

Mars anomaly researchers are debating what the non-terrestrial officer was doing with NASA’s extraterrestrial buggy. He appears to be leaning over it performing maintenance – so we could guess is he is an engineer or a technician.

The “researchers” are also debating other possibilities. Some have suggested that the human-like figure is an alien engineer examining NASA’s space buggy. But for those who have seen the 1978 thriller movie Capricorn One, the photo immediately suggests another possibility: That the entire Mars landing was faked and that Curiosity rover is on Earth.

In the movie Capricorn One, NASA officials discovered too late a fault in the Mars mission life-support system. Unable to continue with the mission, yet unable to announce cancellation of the mission out of fear of losing funding, the officials decided to stage a “Mars landing” from an Earth-based studio. - Inquisitr.

NASA Developing Helicopter That Could Scout for Future Mars Rovers


NASA engineers are working on a small helicopter that could "scout" a trail for future Mars rovers.

The low-flying Mars helicopter would fly ahead of the rover almost every day, checking out various possible points of interest and helping engineers back on Earth plan the best driving route, the US space agency said in a statement.

The proposed helicopter could potentially triple the distance these vehicles currently drive in a Martian day and deliver a new level of visual information for choosing which sites to explore.

Scientists could also use the helicopter images to look for features for the rover to study in further detail.

Another part of the helicopter's job would be to check out the best places for the rover to collect key samples and rocks for a cache, which a next-generation rover could pick up later.

The vehicle is envisioned to weigh one kg and measure 1.1 metres across from the tip of one blade to the other.

The prototype body looks like a medium-size cubic tissue box.

Till date, each NASA rover has delivered a wealth of information about the history and composition of the Red Planet but a rover's vision is limited by the view of on board cameras, and images from spacecraft orbiting Mars are the only other clues to where to drive it.

To have a better sense of where to go and what's worth studying on Mars, it could be useful to have a low-flying scout.

The current design is a proof-of-concept technology demonstration that has been tested at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, California. - NDTV.

January 25, 2015 -  EARTH - The following constitutes several of the latest reports of UFO sightings, courtesy of the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON).

Copper Colored UFO photographed over Potrero Hidalgo, Mexico

MUFON case 62893:

Eye-witness Report:

I was walking in the mountains of Potrero Hidalgo. It was approximately 3:30 pm, and stopped to take pictures from the nature.

At about 6:00 pm I was looking at all the pictures, in one picture at first glance, I saw a dark spot, but zooming in I saw it was a copper colored object.

I clarify that I did not see the approaching object, because the eye was not perceptible, and I did not realized I had captured something and it made no sound. I took the photo on September 2007.

Soundless Cigar UFO Moves Over Maine

A cigar-shaped UFO was moving across the sky at approximately the speed of an airplane starting at 4:38 pm on 17th of January 2015, as reported by a Maine witness at Bangor.

Riding in a vehicle with her husband driving, the witness saw the mysterious flying object heading towards them.

According to the reporting witness, she looked out the car window to her right and spotted what looked like at first a long, metallic blimp going down at tremendous speed near them. Reportedly moving as fast as an airplane, the UFO didn’t make any noise at all.

Terrified by what she had seen, she pointed out the unusual aerial object to her husband. She described the strange thing similar to a blimp structurally but long and narrow enough to be regarded as a cigar-shaped UFO.

The reporting witness tried to search online to know if there are planes resembled the UFO, and she also asked her father, who has been a pilot and an amateur astronomer.

The witness said that a half-scale model of an airship was the closest thing that would resemble the UFO, but this airship has not been flown yet and still being constructed as far as her knowledge is concerned. She also noted the flashing red and white lights at the tail of the craft on her report to MUFON.

The witness observed the object until it flew out of sight. She said that what puzzled her most were the speed and complete silence as it flew upwards and quickly out of sight. She claimed that she also saw a flying saucer once several years ago and said she was happy for the second time around because she has a fellow witness to a mysterious event.

This testimony can be accessed in Case 62745 in the witness reporting database of Mutual UFO Network.

Dark Disc in Dome Cloud captured during flight from London to Dublin

MUFON case 62801:

Eye-witness Report:
On 17/1/2015 at approx 10 am while on a flight from London UK to Dublin Ireland I noticed a bright object out of the window. It seemed to be stationary. I had already taken several pictures with my Smartphone as I had a window seat, so I took a picture and then several more of the clouds.

After looking at the pictures I noticed a dome shaped cloud with a solid disc shaped object part sticking out of the cloud.

This object is dark in color and many times bigger than the glowing orb that can be seen in two pictures.

The object in the cloud can be seen in three pictures. All at different distances but when using zoom a large dark disc is easily seen.

Roswell triangle UFO hovers 25 feet off ground

The object was only about 50-60 feet off the ground when it stopped in mid flight, about 40 feet to the north of the road, hovered up about 20 feet and then it
lowered itself to about 25 feet off the ground and just hung there. Pictured: Downtown Roswell, NM. (Credit: Wikimedia Commons)

A New Mexico witness near Roswell reported watching a slow moving, triangle-shaped UFO that stopped and hovered “50 to 60 feet off of the ground,” according to testimony in Case 62824 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.

The witness was driving an RV on a road trip and was just a few miles outside of Roswell when the object was first seen on December 27, 2014.

“At first glance it looked like a black bar flying through the sky,” the witness stated. “It was traveling from the south heading north at a slow rate of speed.”

As the witness got closer to the object they could see that it was flying very low.

“As we got closer to the object it flew over the highway we were traveling on, and it was only about 50-60 feet off the ground. Then it just stopped mid flight, about 40 feet to the north of the road, hovered up about 20 feet and then it lowered itself to about 25 feet off the ground and just hung there.”

The witness got a good look at the unknown object.

“That’s when I could tell that it was actually triangular in shape and the top and bottom of the object appeared to be giving off a lot of heat.”

The witness tried to alert family members inside the RV.

“I began shouting to my family in the RV, asking, ‘Is anyone else seeing this?’ My sister was sitting directly behind me and she was able to look out the window and that’s when she also saw the object. She became a bit hysterical and began to scream.”

The witness stated that he was in shock looking at the object.

“I totally forgot I had a camera strapped around my neck, and by the time I had gotten it turned on, we lost sight of the object and there were no windows in the back of the RV that had a clear line of sight on the object. So unfortunately, I was unable to get a photo of it. The whole thing lasted only a minute or so, but it was by far the strangest thing I have ever witnessed.”

Roswell is a city in, and the county seat of, Chaves County in the southeastern quarter of the state of New Mexico, population 48,411, and is well known for the 1947 Roswell UFO incident, even though the crash site of the UFO was some 75 miles from Roswell and closer to Corona.

UFO Above Southeast Texas Beach

A man asserts that he photographed a hovering UFO on the night of December 11, 2014 above Crystal Beach in southeast Texas.

The witness, who identified himself as Larry Nash, noticed a bright object in the sky while working at a construction facility in Crystal Beach. Nash reportedly not alone to observe the once in a lifetime event as his co-workers also spotted the same thing.

Local media outlet Beaumont Enterprise reported that the witness described the thing up there as round to the naked eye and like a giant bubble.

Nash also said that the alleged UFO has a metallic appearance. He reportedly used the camera of his phone to get a photo of the unusual aerial object. He further asserted that the UFO changed between green and purple in color. However, his sighting was not justified by the image he got from his phone’s camera as it does not show the changing colors.

The witness claimed that he continued observing the UFO for around 45 minutes before they got instruction to get back to work.

Based on his photo, some believe that Nash just caught on camera an atmospheric phenomenon known as a parhelion or sundog, which is common when sunlight shines thru ice crystals in the air. However, Nash is clueless what he and his co-workers had seen. He reportedly tried to approach UFO enthusiasts to help him identify the mysterious aerial thing in the sky, but he has not been successful so far.

EXTRATERRESTRIAL MEMES: "The Visit" - Faux Documentary Depicts Encounter With Intelligent Aliens!

(Credit: Magic Hour Films)

January 25, 2015 -  HOLLYWOOD
 - A new fictional movie explores the event of first contact with an intelligent extraterrestrial under the guise of a documentary film.

The Visit
presents this first contact scenario in a very authentic manner, attempting to depict the real issues to be addressed during such an event. The film’s documentary format provides an extremely realistic element to the situation that helps create this authentic feel.

Perhaps the film’s greatest realistic element is the use of real people who might actually be the ones to deal with a first-contact situation. Scientists, military personnel, and government officials, including Mazlan Othman, director of the U.N. Office for Outer Space Affairs, appear in this film.

 The movie’s official description states:
Earth may not have been visited by aliens, but ever since the invention of radio and television, humans have been sending signals into outer space, announcing their existence to other civilizations, so the question is not ‘what if’ it happens, but rather ‘when’. With unprecedented access to everyone from the Director of the United Nations Office for Outer Space Affairs to experts from NASA, ISU (International Space University), the SETI (Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence) Institute, and military advisors, the film builds up a chillingly believable scenario of first contact on Earth, beginning with the simplest of questions: Why are you here? How do you think? What do you see in humans that we don’t see in ourselves?
Although some firmly believe that extraterrestrials are already visiting Earth, and have for thousands of years, the official word is that first contact has yet to happen. So, The Visit takes this scenario and looks at various issues that would arise, ranging from government reaction to cultural impact.

The film’s director, Michael Madsen, explains, “In case of such a visit we would at the very least be confronted with fundamental, unexplored, and perhaps even unthinkable questions about ourselves, and our place in the universe. My focus is the exploration of our likely reactions and precautions, as well as the consequences and implications of such an Alien encounter.”

The Visit premieres on January 28 at the Sundance Film Festival.

ANOTHER EARTH: NASA Probe Begins Search For Life On Ceres - Never-Before-Seen Images Reveal Crater-Like Structures On The Frozen, Icy Surface?!

This processed image, taken Jan. 13, 2015, shows the dwarf planet Ceres as seen from the Dawn spacecraft. (NASA/JPL-Caltech/UCLA/MPS/DLR/IDA)

January 22, 2015 -  SPACE
 - Impressive new images of the dwarf planet Ceres, captured by NASA’s Dawn spacecraft, have revealed crater-like structures on the frozen, icy surface. The images arrived as the probe became due to enter Ceres’ orbit.

The images will help the Dawn spacecraft as it navigates its way towards Ceres. It is scheduled to enter the dwarf planet’s orbit around March 6 to begin a 16-month study.

Dawn’s arrival at Ceres will mark the first time a spacecraft has visited the planet, and the probe will able to linger in its orbit for in-depth exploration. NASA’s interest in the planet is that its surface contains vast portions of ice, and the agency has previously detected water vapor – a potential signal that Ceres may harbor life.

We know so much about the solar system and yet so little about … Ceres. Now, Dawn is about to change that,” Mark Rayman, Dawn’s chief engineer and mission director, said in a release from NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory.


Ceres apparently formed far enough from the sun under conditions cool enough for it to hang on to water molecules. Indeed, scientists have good reason to believe that water (mostly in the form of ice) may make up an astonishing 30 percent of its mass. Ceres may contain more water than Mars or any other body in the inner solar system except Earth,” Rayman wrote in his NASA dawnblog.

NASA says Ceres is the largest body in the main asteroid belt, which floats between Mars and Jupiter, and has an average diameter of 590 miles (950 kilometers). Rayman said the dwarf planet probably contains organic materials, some produced by chemical processes with the minerals already there, and some delivered by asteroids that fell to its surface.

WATCH: NASA probe begins search for life on Ceres.

He added that the combination of Ceres’ internal heat and the weak-but-persistent heating from the sun provides energy, which also is essential for life. The possibility of life is extremely remote, Rayman said – and Dawn’s equipment will be unable to detect it regardless – but the “prebiotic” chemistry will be extremely interesting.

The team is very excited to examine the surface of Ceres in never-before-seen-detail,” said Chris Russell, the principal investigator for the mission at the University of California. “We look forward to the surprises this mysterious world may bring.”

NASA's Hubble Space Telescope took the best images to date of Ceres in 2003 and 2004. While the latest set of images is only at about 80% of Hubble's resolution, NASA expects the decade-old images to be eclipsed when the spacecraft has another imaging opportunity at the end of this month.

Ceres falls into the same category of dwarf planets as Pluto. The classification, according to the International Astronomical Union, is for a celestial body that “is in orbit around the sun” and “has sufficient mass for its self-gravity to overcome rigid body forces so that it assumes a hydrostatic equilibrium (nearly round) shape,” but is not able to “clear the neighborhood around its orbit.” - RT.

UFO SIGHTINGS: Purple, Pulsating, Diamond-Shaped UFO Videotaped Over The United Kingdom - January 12, 2015!

January 20, 2015 -  UNITED KINGDOM
 - When venture capitalist Craig Lowther took his dog out of his Tynemouth, England, home at 11:30p.m. on Jan. 12, an unusual object in the late night sky caught his eye.

While videotaping the strange twinkling light, he couldn't imagine that a local scientist would later suggest that what he experienced had all the earmarks of one of the best-known celestial explanations of many UFOs.

"I always look up at the night sky when I go out because where I live, you get a great view of the stars," Lowther, 43, told ChronicleLive. "But when I looked up, I noticed what I thought was a plane traveling on an unusual flight path. It was an unusual color for a plane and it was not moving as you would expect a plane to move."

Lowther captured the bright object on the following video:

UFO over Tynemouth.

Lowther later reported that he used his camera's zoom to get a better look, "and what I saw surprised me."
"It appeared to be a dome with a bulge in the middle and it had pulsating lights on it," he said.

The following map shows the area around Tynemouth, England, where Lowther saw the unusual aerial object.

There's certainly one very bright object in the sky this month that's hard to miss and is often misinterpreted as a UFO. It's Sirius, also known as the Dog Star, from the constellation Canis Major (or Big Dog). Sirius is easy to spot because it happens to be the brightest star in the sky.

"The brightness, twinkling and color changes sometimes prompt first-time observers to report Sirius as a UFO," according to EarthSky. "But these changes have nothing to do with Sirius. Rather, they are what happens when such a bright star as Sirius shines through the blanket of Earth's atmosphere. The light from Sirius...passes through a long column of air before it reaches our eyes. Changes in density and temperature of this air affect the light and cause the flickering and shimmering we see when we gaze at this star."

Alex O'Neil, an astrophysics Masters degree candidate at the U.K.'s University of Sheffield, agrees that Sirius is the likely solution of the Tynemouth UFO.

"[Sirius] appears to be twinkling or pulsating because when light passes through the atmosphere, it becomes distorted," O'Neil told ChronicleLive. "Viewing Sirius through a telescope can be very confusing because it appears to move and change color. It is all just a trick of the eye."

In his original report, Lowther said the object was definitely moving in different directions. "It seemed to me to be going south, then north, then it came back east and seemed to go west of my position. I had no clue what it was. I'd love to know if what I was seeing was a star or if there was an atmospheric anomaly."

CONTACT: Mysterious Radio Wave Bursts Observed - Are They Linked To Extraterrestrials, Neutron Stars Or Black Holes?!

January 20, 2015 -  SPACE - Over the past few years, astronomers have observed a new phenomenon, a brief burst of radio waves, lasting only a few milliseconds. It was first seen by chance in 2007, when astronomers went through archival data from the Parkes Radio Telescope in Eastern Australia. Since then we have seen six more such bursts in the Parkes telescope's data and a seventh burst was found in the data from the Arecibo telescope in Puerto Rico. They were almost all discovered long after they had occurred, but then astronomers began to look specifically for them right as they happen. A team of astronomers in Australia developed a technique to search for these 'Fast Radio Bursts', so they could look for the bursts in real time. The technique worked and now a group of astronomers, led by Emily Petroff (Swinburne University of Technology), have succeeded in observing the first 'live' burst with the Parkes telescope.

The characteristics of the event indicated that the source of the burst was up to 5.5 billion light years from Earth. This means that the sources of theses bursts are extremely bright and could perhaps be used as a cosmological tool for measuring and understanding our universe once we come to understand them better.

Now that they had the burst location and as soon as it was observed, a number of other telescopes around the world were alerted - on both ground and in space, in order to make follow-up observations on other wavelengths.

"Using the Swift space telescope we can observe light in the X-ray region and we saw two X-ray sources at that position," explains Daniele Malesani, astrophysicist at the Dark Cosmology Centre, Niels Bohr Institute, University of Copenhagen.

"Together, our observations allowed the team to rule out some of the previously proposed sources for the bursts, including nearby supernovae," explained Carnegie's Mansi Kasliwal who was on the team. "Short gamma-ray bursts are still a possibility, as are distant magnetic neutron stars called magnetars, but not long gamma ray bursts."

Then the two X-ray sources were observed using the Nordic Optical Telescope on La Palma. "We observed in visible light and we could see that there were two quasars, that is to say, active black holes. They had nothing to do with the radio wave bursts, but just happen to be located in the same direction," explains astrophysicist Giorgos Leloudas, Dark Cosmology Centre, Niels Bohr Institute, University of Copenhagen and Weizmann Institute, Israel.

So now what? Even though they captured the radio wave burst while it was happening and could immediately make follow-up observations at other wavelengths ranging from infrared light, visible light, ultraviolet light and X-ray waves, they found nothing. But did they discover anything?

"We found out what it wasn't. The burst could have hurled out as much energy in a few milliseconds as the Sun does in an entire day. But the fact that we did not see light in other wavelengths eliminates a number of astronomical phenomena that are associated with violent events such as gamma-ray bursts from exploding stars and supernovae, which were otherwise candidates for the burst," explains Daniele Malesani.

But the burst left another clue. The Parkes detection system captured the polarisation of the light. Polarisation is the direction in which electromagnetic waves oscillate and they can be linearly or circularly polarised. The signal from the radio wave burst was more than 20 percent circularly polarised and it suggests that there is a magnetic field in the vicinity.

"The theories are now that the radio wave burst might be linked to a very compact type of object - such as neutron stars or black holes and the bursts could be connected to collisions or 'star quakes'. Now we know more about what we should be looking for," says Daniele Malesani. - Daily Galaxy.

A New Mexico witness at Santa Ana Pueblo reported anomalous lights showed up in a photo taken that depicts three lights in a triangle formation, according to testimony in Case 62729 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.

The incident occurred while the witness was on business and staying at the Hyatt Regency in Santa Ana Pueblo, New Mexico, at 7:05 p.m. on January 15, 2015.

“I used an iPhone 4S, and took several photos of the sky around the hotel,” the witness stated. “At no time did I see the lights (objects?) that show up on the attached picture…in other words, this was not visible to the naked eye, and only showed up when I checked the photos I had taken.”

The witness provided one image with the MUFON report, which was filed on January 19, 2015: Image 1.

The witness has an aviation background.

“I am a licensed pilot, with instrument rating, and a former amateur astronomer, so I’m accustomed to observing the skies and noticing details. These lights were definitely not visible to the naked eye at the time the photo was taken. The lights did not appear in any other photo, either before or after the one being attached, so I doubt this was a malfunction of the camera in my phone.”

The witness does not believe other nearby light sources could be the cause.

“There were also no other point light sources in the general area that might have been bright enough to cause reflections in the lens. I have no idea what these lights were, but thought it strange enough to report to you.”

A New Mexico witness driving south of Hatch reported watching and photographing an “extremely large, completely black” object hovering in the sky that could not be identified, according to testimony in Case 62646 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.

The witness was driving at 4:30 p.m. on January 15, 2015, when the object was first seen.

“I continued to monitor it as we drove and eventually took I-10 westbound and the entire time I was going through what it could possibly be,” the witness stated.

The witness attempted to identify the object.

“Would a helicopter hover hundreds of feet for approximately an hour? I don’t know much about helicopters, so I don’t know. Could it be a weather balloon? Maybe, but it seemed extremely large and completely black. I am so very curious about what it could be and I felt a frustration at not being able to identify it.”

The witness pulled over for gasoline along westbound I-10 for about 15 minutes.

“When we came out of the gas station 10 minutes later, it was gone.”

The witness uploaded one image with the MUFON report: Image 1.

An Oklahoma witness at Tulsa reported watching a UFO with “three really large and bright green lights” that made a sound like a lawnmower and moved as close as the tree top level about 2 a.m. on January 14, 2015, according to testimony in Case 62631 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.

The witness looked out a patio door and saw the object moving toward her location.

“Noticed some really bright solid green lights in the sky coming from the north airport area towards me,” the witness stated. “They were so round and bright! Wondered what the heck was in the sky.”

The witness continued to watch.

“When it got close to my house I could see at least three really large and bright green lights in the front. It could have had more green lights. I did not count. It was close to tree top level. I could hear through my glass door it was really a loud noise it made. Sounded like a really loud lawnmower in the sky.”

The object moved closer.

“As it got close to house it turned to the east and I could see a bright flashing red light at the back of this thing. I live near the airport and see lights all the time on airplanes and helicopters. Never heard one that sounded like this or seen anything that had that many large green lights on the front of it. It continued on going to the southeast of me. Really strange! Those bright green lights are what caused me to watch it. Don’t think it was an airplane. Maybe some new kind of craft or helicopter?”

As the object moved close, the witness said it sounded like a really loud lawnmower in the sky. Pictured: Tulsa, OK. (Credit: Google)

UFO SIGHTINGS: UFO Spotted During NASA's Apollo 7 Mission - Astronauts Redact Truth With Duct Tape?!

January 20, 2015 -  SPACE
 - A UFO has been spotted in archive footage of Apollo 7 - the first manned Apollo mission to take astronauts into space and around the Earth.

The unidentified flying object is 'clearly seen' in one of the frames from the mission, UFO fanatics have said.

Their narrative of the events then suggests that the astronauts -- realising what was at stake -- decided they had to hide the truth from the public.

That's when they took out the duct tape.

Sadly censoring technology wasn't what it is today so the astronauts could only use what was at hand, in this case, sticky back plastic.

Having safely blocked the offending object from view, the astronauts then surely breathed a sigh of relief.

This relief would be short-lived, however, as Mission Control would then have almost certainly got in touch saying that while they were enormously grateful for their efforts in keeping the secret, they needn't have bothered because while redaction was still in its infancy, they could you know, just not release the pictures.

Also, it wasn't an alien death craft, because this is real life. UFO hunters have also found aliens in footage of Apollo 12 and Apollo 15. Based on this you would assume space would be literally teeming with Neptunian laser craft. Unfortunately, we've been in space every day for 15 years at this point and not seen a thing. So either the Apollo missions were incredibly lucky, or NASA just has an incredibly large supply of duct tape aboard ISS.

Turns out that was all pointless anyway because both the duct tape and the 'UFO' are plain to see on NASA's website. Now who has egg on their face? - Huffington Post.

EXOPOLITICAL DISCLOSURE: "It's Time To Find Out What The Truth Really Is That's Out There" - John Podesta, Advocate For UFO Disclosure, To Lead Hillary Clinton Presidential Election Campaign!

John Podesta and Hillary Clinton, Podesta is pegged to lead Clintons election campaign and is an advocate for UFO disclosure.

January 20, 2015 -  UNITED STATES
 - John Podesta is an advocate for freedom of information, he has stated that it is time that the book is opened and full disclosure be given on everything, including the existence of Aliens. He has also had to issue an apology for calling Republicans “Killer Cultists”… He is a senior White House aid at the moment, The Wall Street Journal reported that it he may resign and join Hillary Clinton’s election campaign.

The Journal reported, "The precise role Mr. Podesta would play in a Clinton campaign is unclear. People familiar with discussions said he likely would be campaign chairman, should she decide to run." Given his social and political leaning he would be an interesting asset for Clinton.

In 2013 he compared congressional republicans the Jonestown cultists who left more than 900 people dead and committed mass suicide in 1978. "They need to focus on executive action given that they are facing a second term against a cult worthy of Jonestown in charge of one of the houses of Congress." Podesta said of the president's administration in an interview. Naturally the Republicans were very, very angry and Podesta eventually apologized on Twitter. 

A new petitions created by Steve Bassett is to make the US government reveal the full extent of its knowledge in relations to UFO’s and Aliens.

The most interesting aspect of Podesta is his belief that the governments knowledge of extraterrestrial’s should be released to the public, if they have any proof. In 2002 he spoke at a press conference asking the US government to declassify any UFO records. He also wrote the foreword to the 2010 book "UFOs: Generals, Pilots, and Government Officials Go on the Record."

John Podesta on UFO disclosure.

In the book he wrote
, "As someone interested in the question of UFOs, I think I have always understood the difference between fact and fiction. I guess you could call me a curious skeptic. But I'm skeptical about many things, including the notion that government always knows best." The time to pull the curtain back on this subject is long overdue." Perhaps with Podesta in a position of power we may not need Steve Bassett's petition asking for disclosure, it may just come naturally after all.

Could Hillary Clinton make it to the Presidential Office? The next election could see the first female president in US history. She is a strong advocate of human rights and equality, with Podesta at her side we could see full disclosure if she makes office. After all if we look at the press and the media it would appear that we are being prepped for disclosure through predictive programming. Read former MOD Nick Popes thoughts on that here.

UFO SIGHTINGS: High Alert - UFOs Spotted Over Nuclear Plants In France And Belgium!

January 20, 2015 -  EUROPE
 - The French government is on high alert due to a large amount of UFO sightings over nuclear power plants since October, 2014. The latest sighting in France was just last week, and witnesses in Belgium spotted one in December. Most media outlets suspect that the objects are drones, but not all of the witnesses are convinced. If they are drones, the authorities say they do not know who they belong to.

According to Austrian news site, there were 18 separate occasions UFOs were seen flying over nuclear power plants in France between early October and early November. They say authorities suspect it is the coordinated effort of an unknown group.
says the sightings have sparked a debate over nuclear power plant security. Greenpeace has accused the French government of downplaying the danger of these unknown over flights.

The latest incident was announced on January 3, 2015. The nuclear power plant in Nogent-sur-Seine, southeast of Paris, says two security guards saw “two flying objects.”

In late December, an object flew over a nuclear power plant in Belgium. The power plant is in Doel, about 10 miles from Antwerp. The news site Spiegel Online, says that plant had been shut down four months ago reportedly due to sabotage. No further details have been released.

According to Speigel Online, Greenpeace again raised concerns that the plants “are not adequately protected from attacks by drones.”

In November, the UK news site The Independent wrote that three young men were arrested in central France attempting to fly a drone over a nuclear plant. They said the three were “model aircraft enthusiasts.” However, these three were suspected of conducting copycat drone flights. Apparently their drones were simple toys, not like the sophisticated craft believed to be involved with most of the UFO incursions.

According to The Independent, “A campaign of harassment by anti-nuclear campaigners is considered the most likely explanation.” Meanwhile, they say the French government remains on high alert.
, a website on “frontier-science and the paranormal” ran by Andreas Muller, posted an article this week with witness testimony from civilians who have seen some of these UFOs. According to Muller, the testimony was printed in the latest issue of a Swiss magazine called Mysteries. Writer Robert Fleischer found witnesses at, a popular French UFO forum.

Fleischer wrote (translated by Google Translate):
On November 10, 2014 observed three users of this forum in a parking lot close to the NPP Cattenom also a strange object in the night sky The man -. We call him Jaques – mid 50’s and early retirement, he is very careful in the assessment. of what he has seen and his friends. ‘We have a vigil kept, because we finally so wanted to see and photograph a thing,’ said Jacques.

They had already spent two hours in the cold, the sky was cloudless. ‘At about 23.30 clock one of my friends turned us saw a light that was coming from the south on us. The light seemed rather like a neon tube. It was absolutely silent. The exact amount we were difficult to assess, but I have kept my thumb with an outstretched arm up and could see that the light was almost as long as my thumb.’

The light object and pulled evenly its orbit and finally disappeared in the north without fly over the nuclear power plant directly. A short time later, a car stopped next to the gendarmerie observers in the parking lot. ‘These were security officers from the nuclear plant. They wanted to know what we’re doing and demanded our papers.’

The day after received Jaques and his friends a call from the police in Hettange-Grande and were invited to a hearing. ‘For two hours we were interviewed separately, about the appearance of light, about ourselves. Then we were allowed to go. They take it very seriously.’ It was only later learned Jaques that at the time of his sighting of an alarm in the NPP Cattenom was triggered.
Fleischer also interviewed witnesses who saw a UFO on October 30, 2014, over a nuclear plant in Golfech. He writes (translated by Google Translate):
When the lights but then became stronger, the men attacked the binoculars. One minute remains the object of heaven, above the village of Donzac, in close proximity to nuclear power. It hovers just above the cooling towers. Then it starts to rotate. It appears a second light on the object that flashes quickly. One of the observers believe that the object taking shots.

Now the light comes on to the witnesses, then remains stehen- about 20 seconds. ‘It was not hear any noise. On a hill to our right we could hear a tractor, but of this flying object was made no noise.’ The man believes he has something like wings on the object at the ends of light yellow and blue lights. On the underside of a bright red light. ‘The contours seemed very blurry, dark gray,’ he recalls. The apparatus continues its flight direction and eventually disappears from the field of view of an observer.

Muller writes that Fleischer is skeptical of the drone explanation, given the descriptions by witnesses. Fleischer suspects there is more to it than French authorities are willing to admit. - Open Minds.
