Ah ha! The weirdness continues!

Sploid Gizmodo – 11/07/13 — The object in these photographs captured by Hubble is not a comet. It’s something that no astronomer has ever seen before, according to NASA: An asteroid with six comet-like tails that isn’t moving like a comet and it’s not made of ice. It’s just hanging up there, rotating like a crazy space spider.

According to lead investigator David Jewitt of the University of California at Los Angeles, “we were literally dumbfounded when we saw it [in the solar system’s asteroid belt] We were completely knocked out.”

NASA says that “unlike all other known asteroids, which appear simply as tiny points of light, this asteroid, designated P/2013 P5, resembles a rotating lawn sprinkler. Astronomers are puzzled over the asteroid’s unusual appearance.” Read more…

A lot of discoveries out there these days! The more, the merrier, right? Keep ‘em coming!

Some seem to think it’s from a collision. Or rotational breakup. Or pressure from the Sun. Or something. NASA itself doesn’t seem to know what to make of it at the moment.

Good.

Discovery! Investigation! Science!

Peace.

Well now, this is mighty unusual…

Science Daily – Oct. 9, 2013 — An international team of astronomers has discovered an exotic young planet that is not orbiting a star. This free-floating planet, dubbed PSO J318.5-22, is just 80 light-years away from Earth and has a mass only six times that of Jupiter. The planet formed a mere 12 million years ago — a newborn in planet lifetimes.

It was identified from its faint and unique heat signature by the Pan-STARRS 1 (PS1) wide-field survey telescope on Haleakala, Maui. Follow-up observations using other telescopes in Hawaii show that it has properties similar to those of gas-giant planets found orbiting around young stars. And yet PSO J318.5-22 is all by itself, without a host star.

“We have never before seen an object free-floating in space that that looks like this. It has all the characteristics of young planets found around other stars, but it is drifting out there all alone,” explained team leader Dr. Michael Liu of the Institute for Astronomy at the University of Hawaii at Manoa. “I had often wondered if such solitary objects exist, and now we know they do.”

The last line above from Dr. Liu gives me a smile and some hope. The sense of wonder is so important to us. I am glad it’s still out there. Really.

If it can be imagined, it’s out there. Things that can’t be imagined are no doubt out there, too. That’s exciting.

So many questions. Did it form out there? Around a star? If so, what happened to it? Maybe it’s a Dyson Sphere! Might it have life? I bet it does.

We need to build a way to go there and see. That should be our planetary goal.

Peace.

Boffins Baffled!

LOL!

Sorry, I’m OK now.

Hehe. It’s just that I love when the boffins are baffled. Especially in astronomy. There are so many things we have no idea about. Models and paradigms are created based on the data at hand and are seemingly ingrained as fact in the minds of many. But they are not facts, they are merely good ideas given what information is available and people’s interpretation of it.

Planet Kepler-78b, a rocky planet much like our own, has just been discovered orbiting a star that is also much like our own.  It is however, so different that astronomers simply do not understand how it can possibly exist. I like that.

Sky Mania – October 30, 2013 — “This planet is a complete mystery,” says astronomer David Latham of the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics (CfA). “We don’t know how it formed or how it got to where it is today. What we do know is that it’s not going to last forever.” Colleague Dimitar Sasselov said: “Kepler-78b is going to end up in the star very soon, astronomically speaking. It couldn’t have formed in place because you can’t form a planet inside a star. It couldn’t have formed further out and migrated inward, because it would have migrated all the way into the star. This planet is an enigma.” Dr Ken Rice, of the University of Edinburgh said: “Although this planet is clearly too hot to support life, it is still very exciting to now be discovering planets that are not only similar in mass to the Earth, but also similar in composition.”

The main difficulty is that the orbit is only a million miles from the star. A year on it lasts a quick 8 and a half hours. The rocks at the surface are pretty toasty and would be much like permanently molten lava. It is thought that stars shrink as they age, so the mere presence of this object where it sits seems impossible with current thought.

And yet… there it is.

Awesome.

Peace.

This is simply too pretty not to share…

Pretty slick. Looks like something the Electric Universe guys or the Plasma peeps would like.

From the post at Spaceweather.com entitled Unidentified Object:

I usually shy away from UFO stuff these days, even though I have seen several, but, I like this one. As mentioned I think it is visually impressive. And it’s on Spaceweather, which doesn’t hurt. Also appearing here in the local paper/site (in Portuguese (Google translation)). They wrote:

Strange object (maybe an UFO?) In the sky

A citizen from Novo Hamburgo, in the south of Brazil, photographed – between 8:30 and 9 PM on 22nd october – a strange object in the sky. Specialists disagree on what it would be. One of Them que said it’s not a weather balloon. Another said that’s not a paramotor. Some say it’s a drone (unmanned the vehicle). And there are Those Who que defend it’s just lens flare.

Was included in this post for our readers foreign language, an English summary of the original text published in the print edition of the ABC Sunday.

Is it a UFO? Technically, yes, it is, but semantically it depends on what you personally think of when you hear that term. Lens flare is popular in the comments section, as expected. Could very well be lens flare. I don’t think it is at this moment, though. Could of course be lots of things.

Here’s the full photo:

Anyway, enjoy the eye candy, folks.

ETA: Interesting date and time discrepancy in the EXIF data. Not sure what if anything that implies. Still like it…

As we enter the 21st century and a new millenium, Satan has devised the delusion that mankind is entering into an important evolutionary phase – a New Age. The push for “global enlightenment” has now extended to the vast reaches of the universe, into what could be deemed as a “space” religion. However, once this nebulous veil is lifted, a definite correlation emerges between the UFO/Alien phenomenon and occultic/satanic activity.

Photo of a Gargoyle, or perhaps, a representation of humanity’s collective memory of the ‘GODS’ or ‘MICE’ who once walked among us. The ancient civilizations of the Egyptians, Babylonians, Aztecs, Mayans, and Incas shared several intriguing characteristics: They were extremely advanced scientifically and technologically. Animal and human sacrifices were performed at an alarming rate, preceding their demise. They believed they had acquired metaphysical knowledge from the “gods”, whom they perceived as coming from the stars and also the subterranean level of the earth. These cultures disintegrated or became abruptly extinct while at the pinnacle of their existence.

Many of these revered and feared entities were described as looking like winged-reptilians or dragons. Similarly, Satan and his minions were depicted in an identical manner, as seen in artwork throughout the centuries.

A monograph entitled, Reality of the Serpent Race, by Branton, reveals, “In Genesis 3 we read about the ‘Nachash’; Hebrew word for ‘Serpent’. The original Nachash was not actually a snake as most people believe, but an extremely intelligent, cunning creature, possessed with the ability to speak and reason.” Another significant parallel from the Holy Bible is shown in Jeremiah 8:17, “Behold, I will send serpents, cockatrices among you, which will bite you, saith the Lord.” The definition of a cockatrice is a reptilian bird-like creature or winged-serpent. This could very well represent the Phoenix, described in Egyptian mythology.

A theory proposed by Bible scholar I.D.E. Thomas asserts that the race of the “Nephilim” (meaning Giants and/or fallen ones), mentioned in Genesis 6:4 and Numbers 13:33, closely resemble the alien race of the blond Pleiadian Nordics, reported to be eight to nine feet tall. The Nazis attempted to revive this mystical Aryan race in the 1930s and 1940s. Mr. Thomas believes that a hybrid offspring culminated from relations between the Nephilim and the “daughters of man” resulting in increased wickedness upon the earth; and thus evoking God’s wrath in the form of the “Great Flood”.

Interviews taken of ex-Wiccans and Satanists (now Christians) indicate a high level of personal contact with various alien types, especially during coven meetings and holiday rituals. Those coming from the highest echelon of Satanism known as the Illuminati, believe the original people who inhabited the earth descended from Mars via the Moon. They believe the first established civilization was Atlantis. Renowned for their superior intellect, the Atlanteans suffered the same fate as a few of the proceeding cultures already mentioned. The remnant people from Atlantis became the American Indians, according to their interpretation of history.

Dr. Richard Boylan has written extensively about E.T. encounters, and has found five common features of people predominately involved in UFO/alien sightings and abductions: Individuals possessing a high degree of psychic ability. Similar phenomenon occurring with other family members (multi or trans-generational). Native Americans and/or indigenous peoples. Children who have been subjected to severe abuse or trauma. Individuals and/or family members affiliated to government and/or military intelligence agencies or departments.

In conjunction, a strong relationship exists between occultic ritual sites, top secret military installations, and UFO/alien sightings and abductions. There also appears to be a magnetic spiritual vortex (or vacuum) which has drawn an many “New Agers” into these areas (Taos, NM; Sedona,AZ; Boulder, CO, etc.). One prime example is the area near Dulce, NM, where the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has a highly-secured underground complex on the Jicarella Indian Reservation — a region known for Native American shamanism. The facility is said to be used for genetic engineering, including cloning. Several witnesses who were employed there reported seeing different breeds of aliens.

Gosh!

Digging the music… quite the aural treat!

I am not quite sure what to say about the essay, though. I was told that the treatise above was written with me and folks like me in mind, but I do not know that that is a fact or not. Knowing the person who said it quite well does, however, lend credence to that possibility.

Covers a lot of ground, it does, eh? It is… interesting, to say the least.

I also think a Fortean perspective on it is needed, as there are bits in there that are relating to highly speculative happenings.

Make of it what you will… WAAAH!

Enjoy!

Peace.

I love stuff like this. Truly! I find what follows to be absolutely fascinating.

Band of Holes, aerial view.

From above, the “Band of Holes” glistens in the sunlight, as if giving off some sort of code to those who created them – messages in stone viewed from above. Perhaps the code is linked to human DNA and the progression of consciousness through time. Source: Band of Holes near Pisco Valley, Peru

And to think that I thought with near certainty that the photo above was colorized when I first heard about the Band of Holes in a post by my good friend SLAYER69, which was in reply to a thread called More Mysterious Nazca Lines From Space. That thread discusses some of the much lesser-known artifacts extant in Nazca, including an interesting pattern of “dots.” If you have an interest in this area, you should definitely have a look at it and enjoy a good read, it is an interesting discussion.

The feature, located just North of latitude 13°42’55.37″S and longitude 75°52’28.46″W is a mile long and about 60′ across on average. Dating back to extremely ancient times, someone, for some reason, carved approximately 6,900  meter wide holes, eight across each row, right into the barren rock of a plain known as Cajamarquilla very near the Pisco Valley in Peru. It is, of course, unexplained. Which is why I like it.

Here’s a very nice ground level shot:

Band of Holes by BrunoZ

Pisco Valley by Tgraham2This next shot is very nice, no? For a bit of perspective missing from the aerial pics.

It is from Jimmy Kopelia’s blog. Jimmy tells a rather nice and very fanciful tale about how the holes were dug out thousands of years by a bevy of nymphs as both a tool to call their Rain God and an offering to the lad. And he dug it! Yay nymphs!

Hehe, that made me smile.

Oh dear, looking deeper, it seems that  Jimmy may very well have gotten his tale, verbatim, from Enchanted Lands and Fables. Naughty boy.

I guess a little romantic license could be given to such a nice tale … kind of difficult I’d think for nymphs, who tend to be soft and tender creatures, to carve so vigorously into solid rock like that. Magic!

We need to remember that these holes are very old. They’ve been there so long that the people who live there have absolutely no idea whatsoever as to who made them or even why they would, let alone what they were for.

A gap in the Band.The band is not entirely continuous, interestingly enough, there are several clear gaps, the photo on the left from Google Sightseeing shows one such gap nicely. I wonder if these interruptions mean something.

The more I think about it, the more the romantic side of me conjures that they likely do. With civilizations so ancient that there is no history of them left, or even legend referring to them, nothing would surprise me.

There is mention within the admittedly rather scant literature that these holes could represent a code of some kind. Could be.

Noted is the fact that the holes are not of uniform depth… while most are 6 or 7 feet deep, many of them are quite shallow, some just a dent and they are surrounded by the standard issue deep ones, as if on purpose, rather than some being merely “unfinished.”

That is fascinating.

I most definitely think that this aspect deserves looking into… might be a dead end, but then again… it might not. Need to go there, though, as tools like Google Earth get you pretty close, but to my eyeballs at least it’s not anywhere near close enough to do any kind of precision survey.

Archaeologists have come up with some suggestions that seem somewhat silly, really. They have put forth ideas such as the holes were for the storage of grain, or, barring that, maybe they were graves. Come on, now. No evidence that would support either theory has ever been found.

I simply cannot come to grips with a mindset that could or would come up with those two ideas. It ignores, if you look at it, what is right in front of their eyes. It is always assumed, without any consideration, that the people were primitives, although at least in this case they gave them credit for being agricultural.

I just dont understand it. At all. Seems thinking is disallowed. Nothing that might conflict in any way with the prepared itinerary of Homo sapiens could ever have happened, because they know everything about human history and have for a long time. Well, that sort of thinking by archaeologists is as much of an impediment to the discovery of the true history of our kind as the snake oil salesmen and charlatans in general are to the discovery of what those things flying around in the sky are, or what that creature that’s been seen so many times might be. Or anything. My God.

Look at their proposals. Grain storage. Leaving aside the obvious fact that there isn’t a hell of a lot of farming going on anywhere near all that barren rock and the lack of provisions for lids, why would anyone do such a thing? Cart your stuff a mile up a big rock and divvy up your load into each hole? Jeez, maybe they’re for making really big cupcakes for the Gods. Same things would apply for graves. Cart the deceased a mile up the big rock and plop the loved one down and leave him or her there out in the open. Nice. Some of the holes are said to be at up to a 45 degree angle, as well, so, one can imagine. Seriously, dear archaeologists, just, you know, stop it. Really. It’s embarrassing.

Let me mention again that no artifacts have ever been found. No grain, bones, implements, pottery shards, or anything else. There are only the holes.

It’s been mentioned a few times in various forums that the holes resemble the traces left by mining machinery designed to moves along the ground at some pace sampling the ground underneath it for whatever minerals or metals the operators might be interested in. Maybe so, I’m no mining expert so I can’t really say much on the subject except that it could be. But if so, then who did that? Many would jump to the conclusion that aliens did it almost immediately, but I rather think that if such a thing really happened that it was the handiwork of the civilization living there at the time.

I am of the opinion, you see, that there were such civilizations on Earth. They were here a very long time before the ones we know about started up. They were at least as advanced as us if not much more so. This formation may represent evidence of them, as everyone always goes on about there being no evidence for such a people. And if they are so old that even the Inca have no memories, myths or legends of them… well… there you go. It seems pretty reasonable to me. Where did they go? They could have wiped themselves out as we seem intent on doing lately, or perhaps they simply left for other worlds. Maybe we are all their descendants. Who can say? I like thinking about it.

As an aside relating to the above rant, the source site and the others you’ll find which are basically cut and pastes of whoever had it first refer to an interesting feature located not far to the east of the Band which they say looks like the remains of a lost city on Google Earth. And, well, it does. It could also be the result of mining though, as immediately to the north of it, conveniently cropped out of the very impressive satellite picture, is what looks rather like a large mining facility. But then again it would most definitely be a good idea to go and have a look at that as well.

Here’s a strange video… strange only in that it starts out great and begins to get your juices flowin and then just stops in mid-sentence. I hate when that happens. Seriously. There are seemingly no other videos from this man, at least on the web. ’Sup with that?

Uploaded by  on Oct 25, 2010 John Gallatin explores the Band of Holes mystery in Peru.

Where’s the rest, John, I want to watch!

Now here is a rather different take on it. Fair warning, this video is all text and is more than a bit tedious to watch.

Published on Aug 9, 2012 by  In America many of these sites are still a mystery, I am here to convey my opinion to unravel the mystery of the Nazca Lines & Band of Holes, the two sites is very important because it will become a reference point to other sites.

Well, I don’t know about that… it’s an interesting theory, but I just cant bring myself to accept that the holes are remnants of the people carving out cubic blocks. Really? It seems, in my humble opinion, to be a non-starter, but I thought I should post it anyway.

The second video refers to similar phenomena in other locations. Can’t say that I’ve ever heard of any, but the world does tend to go by pretty quickly these days.

Anyway, if you search the Tube for band of holes this next video is one of the four that will pop up. And it is indeed from ‘another location.’

And gol-lee would ya behold the sight, folks, it is indeed a mighty fine find! It certainly does look similar in concept. But it is in a forest… was it forested when built? Seems it should be out in the open and the conditions are conducive to it becoming overgrown after so long, whereas in the local Peruvian area they definitely are not. The best part of this discovery for me is that it’s within a reasonable driving distance, being not so very far away in western Maryland. When things improve around here to a suitable level of background weirdness I might just have a look at this ancient relic in person. Now that would be neat.

Published on Jul 31, 2012 by  I found this while hiking in a very remote location in green ridge state forest it is very similar to the band of holes found near the nazca lines in peru. serious ufo activity has been witnessed in this area. the location is untouched by man, no camp sites on this whole ridge ,it has never been logged , the nearest native american villages were miles to the south and west . 2 miles south of the mason dixon line and 8 miles north of the potomac river and west virginia 4.4 miles east of flintstone maryland. about 2 hours from d.c. i can not figure out what made this but it is man made and not natural.

I’ve been working on this post way too long amidst myriad stops and starts caused by the glorious events of this my best week ever, yes ever, so far in my life (and there have been a hell of a lot of weeks); and actually working on a website for a paying and really rather nice customer for a change as well, so I am going to click the publish button now.

Enjoy, yes, indeed do that thing!

I haven’t posted a tune in a while, so we’re due, but this thread didn’t start out in the usual way. You all know that I’m always lurking on ATS for the latest in high strangeness and conspiracy; I saw a thread entitled North Carolina’s strange, strange pond. by member ColeYounger, which as you might imagine is right up my alley, so of course I had to click it.

In it was the following very cool story and the reference to this song, along with this YouTube music video. Two birds, one stone for WATT, eh? Ha!

On the discussion board, there was an old post by a guy who said he grew up in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. Apparently, the guy had been checking out the online discussions about strange power spots, vortexes and ‘Earth anamolies.’ [sic]

He said that one day in 1969, he and three friends were riding dirt-bike motorcycles in a large forested area near Winston-Salem. He described it as thick forest with bike trails worn through the woods. Deep in the middle of the forest was a large clearing. They had ridden their bikes there many times before, but on this day, when they reached the clearing, they were shocked to see a huge, perfectly round depression in the ground that was probably 80 – 100 feet in diameter . He said it was as if a giant iron ball had been pressed into the ground, buried halfway, and then lifted out. The dirt in the indentation was ‘smooth as glass’. There was not a bump or a ripple anywhere. Of course they thought that it had somehow been man-made…dug out with bulldozers or something. But there was no machinery anywhere. There was no way to get any machinery there! There were no roads, just bike trails. They got really spooked and got the hell out of there. From what the guy said, all four of them were pretty spooked.

They went back to town and told some friends. A couple other guys went there shortly thereafter and they saw it too. The weird depression was gone within a few days, as if it was never there.
Now this is weird! ….supposedly someone took some photos, but never gave them to any news people, reporters, etc. The story became quite a local legend. I’m surprised it’s not really famous. Maybe because the “mystery circle” was there and gone so quickly?

A couple years later, Fleetwood Mac released their song “Hypnotized”. Some of the lyrics definitely sound like the Winston-Salem circle, although the term “pond” is used.

Cole then wonders just exactly how Bob Welch, Fleetwood Mac’s guitarist and songwriter at the time, came up with the lyrics in question…

Well… In FleetwoodMac.net’s The Penguin Q&A Sessions section, ATS researcher Pauligirl found this quote regarding this very happening from the guy who wrote the song, Bob Welch, August 4 – 17, 2003:

Hey Bob! In Hypnotized you talk about a strange pond in North Carolina. What’s the story behind it, and where’s it supposed to be? A curious North Carolinian… (Louie Golden, Charlotte, NC, USA)

A guy that I used to work with from Winston-Salem told me the story of he and some friends riding dirt bikes 20 miles or so out in the woods when they came upon a strange “crater” in the ground with smooth sides like melted glass. It was a “pond” in the sense that there was some rainwater in it I guess.There were no access roads or caterpillar tracks so it wasn’t a construction site. I think the location must have been near Winston-Salem. They all immediately got the feeling they should get out of there. Maybe it was a meteor impact ? I just liked the imagery for the song.

So, Bob actually met and talked with one of the guys who experienced this first-hand. Seriously, how cool is that? What are the odds? Spock?

Needless to say that this is one heck of a mystery. The ‘smooth as glass’ nature of the depression is particularly fascinating. As is the fact that it ‘repaired itself,’ so to speak, after just a few days. Weird! Groundwater rising and falling within a water cave has been suggested, which I suppose is reasonably plausible, but what about the glassy smooth effect? Not a common sinkhole feature that I know of.

And in this reply, posted after I started writing, this feature, or a remnant of it, may have been located! Only those who were there could verify that, of course, but it is certainly intriguing. Maybe they’ll show up and clarify things! It’s happened before. But them Gol darn odds are agin’ us. It would be fabulous if the photos mentioned were to turn up!

I just love how utterly strange our world can be. I really do.

And,  it turns out, much to my delight, that Bob Welch is a big fan of various Fortean subjects, most notably UFOs. I like that and wonder if this incident helped trigger off his interest in the unexplained. If you read the interview with him at the Fleetwood Mac site you will see several questions relating to UFOs and the like. Such as this one…

Hi Bob and thank you for doing another Q&A for your devoted fans ! My questions are….

Since you are into the paranormal like me, who are your favourite authors on the subject ? (i.e. John A. Keel, Stanton Friedman, and Jenny Randles) (Arizona Ranger, Cranford, NJ, USA)

Jacques Vallee, Ingo Swann, Gary Schwartz (the Afterlife Experiments), David R. Hawkins MD (The Eye Of The I), Stephen Greer(Disclosure Project). The ones you mentioned (Freidman etc.) are also good. There are many more…John G White “The Unobstructed Universe” comes to mind. I’m planning to put a list of all the authors I like on my website.

Shame about Greer being in there, really… hopefully Bob has seen the light on that matter. It’s one I fell for initially, too, back in the day, so I can relate and I’m sure all’s well.

May strangeness befall you.

Peace.

Digging through my drafts folder again… under a dozen now! Ha!

This is one of the strangest incidents I have ever seen. I heard about it through my usual hangout, of course, where I proceeded to read all the threads about it as they were posted over a few months worth of time. One of the saner threads about it is called, more appropriately, Madness In The Fast Lane – Suicide Pact?/Mental Illness?/Superhuman Twins?)

It is all about the story of the profoundly bizarre antics of a pair of rather resilient Swedish twins, Ursula and Sabina Eriksson, born in 1967, as they were visiting, if one could really call it that, the United Kingdom.

The threads I read ranged from the logical (pretty much) to the patently absurd.

Theories advanced were

  • various forms of mental illness
  • drugs, although none were found
  • some sort of governmental MK-Ultra type mind control experiment
  • some sort of governmental super-soldier manipulation / training deal
  • that they are really clones
  • and finally – the WATT prize of Most Ridiculous has to go to the one that appeared on Christmas in 2010, a thread called Alien twin hybrids on TV.

Really. We do get our share of them at ATS.

Yet even with three professional psychologists weighing in with psychological speculation, the case to this day remains – unexplained.

The original “Aliens…” post said: (typos corrected)

In latest program UFOs & the Star of Bethlehem, Author L.A. Marzulli Introduce the story about the two twin alien hybrid being shown in a documentary called “Twins Madness in the fast lane”

He say that there is this documentary about two twins that are clearly alien hybrids because of the things they do and because they have super human powers and dont care about pain ( no drugs involved )

I will not go into depth about what is going to happen in this short documentary where the supposedly twin alien hybrids are in, all that I will say is that is jaw dropping even if you believe its alien hybrids, mind control or mental ill persons.

Well. Should have stopped when I saw the words Coast to Coast, but didn’t, as I did not immediately realize on clicking that it dealt with this case. There is nothing therein that has any relation to any aspect of “alien hybrids.” Nothing. Whatsoever.

The entire story is jaw dropping, however. I’ll certainly give it that! High Strangeness!

Just to note, as you will see upon watching, the entire premise listed above is distasteful at best and reeks of charlatan in the worst way… let’s just say that the gentleman person referred to is not one who will be let into the bunker after the SHTF. I abhor charlatans. Especially those who care more for fame and money that the people they directly hurt with their thoughtless bullshit.

As one commenter noted: (typos corrected, emphasis added)

To imply that they are ET hybrids is scraping the barrel of Ufology in desperation for a new story.when they did tests on both of them they both had abnormally high amounts of HGH (human growth hormone)in their system which was said to be naturally occurring? If you do some research you’ll find lots on HGH, and how it makes the user feel invincible, ultra strong

Oh, man, I hate when I go off on such silly tangents. Not altogether sure why it affects me so but I think the impact of those poor souls so desperate to believe such foolishness in the face of reason gets me going a tad too much.

So before I get even further into digression, forget all that alien crap, for crap it is – and savor if you will just how powerful mental illness can be and just how weird human behavior can be.

Two girls, from an admittedly very poor and tragic childhood, later go on to lead pretty much normal lives as far as we can tell, one married with kids in Ireland; one in the USA; finally get together after a being apart for about 5 years… and then, suddenly — what you are about to see takes place.

Madness in the fast lane (Full film)

Uploaded by on May 20, 2011

In 2008, BBC cameras filmed two Swedish sisters throwing themselves into traffic on the M6. When it was shown on BBC One, nearly 7 million viewers were glued to their screens, and millions more watched it later on YouTube.

The footage was shocking. One previewer wrote “On no account miss this documentary. It opens with what is perhaps the most extraordinary footage I’ve seen on TV”.

But this amazing footage was only part of an even more incredible story, one which could not be told at the time for legal reasons.

Now, two years later, this documentary reveals the full story of the hours just before the cameras captured that motorway footage, and the even more chilling story of what happened over next 72 hours, which left one of the sisters fleeing the scene of a crime, after she had stabbed a man through the chest.

Those who were at the centre of this fascinating legal case, including the police and Crown prosecution service, reveal the complex issues involved in both bringing charges and taking this disturbing case to trial.

A leading criminal psychiatrist, Dr. Nigel Eastman, explains the difficulties the judicial system has in achieving justice and deciding punishment when dealing with mental illness. He explains the possible causes of the womens’ behaviour, and why, in his view, it could happen again.

Peace.

I like this phenomena! Weird noises from the sky! I want to experience it very badly. Judging from the recent activity level, I may not have long to wait.

Mystery booms have always fascinated me… the Seneca Guns, my home state’s Moodus noises, all very much like powerful yet distant, unseen detonations of an aerial nature. All, to this day, are continuing unabated… with nary a good explanation in sight.

These new, improved noises are different, though. Very different. They’re not at all like some unseen offshore Admiral is going bonkers with his cannons… no, no, these are sustained loud groanings and creakings and metallic thrashings. They can (and usually do) go for over an hour. They are quite seriously loud. They appear to emanate from the sky, but nothing is ever visible. Could they then be actually from underground? Maybe so. But everyone is adamant in saying it comes from above.

Awaits an explanation, this new noise does, but it would appear that mainstream media and scientists, with rare exceptions, are issuing not a peep about this. Despite the fact that it’s global and frequently scaring the wits out of quite a lot of people. You’ll find mention of it only on conspiracy-type sites and the ubiquitous YouTube… Hmmm. A diligent individual is compiling a map. Updated mapUpdated USA map. Updated Global map. Here is a nice long thread on this subject.

If you have heard this, please comment.

Anyone who watches hockey knows that in order to be an NHL ref you need to know how to teleport. But seriously, what is going on here?

I have been watching this, over and over and over again, trying to figure out what is happening here. Full screen included.

I’ve stopped now, mainly to prevent overheating my neurons. I have a very nice ViewSonic professional monitor and an ATi FireGL V3600 video card. All well and good, but…

I can’t figure it out.

In the discussion about this vid over at ATS, some say the referee can be glimpsed briefly just before. Maybe. Some say the camera started and stopped. Not. Someone, pretending to be a video expert, said some frames were dropped, highly doubtful, or, edited out on purpose to create an illusion. What? This is live coverage of a big game… the producers have neither the time nor the inclination for such tomfoolery. There’s major money at stake for them.

After the fact it could be, but I see absolutely no evidence of frames gone missing; and, why would they do such a thing?

I can’t see where he skates in from. I just can’t. I’m not ready to say it’s a paranormal event, but I do feel it’s pretty damn Fortean. Oh, wait, is that the same thing? Ha!

Someone did say it is perhaps a glitch in the matrix…

Ghosts can have that effect on me. Not sure why except possibly because they were once supposed to be people.

Now as you may know I really loathe hoaxers and fraudsters and that’s why you won’t see certain places in the sidebar any longer like Skipper and Hoagland and Strickler. And ghost hoaxers… well, they are extra bad in my eyes, perhaps due to the effect legit ones have on me as mentioned.

There are some interesting ghost vids out there. I don’t usually watch them as I feel that the vast majority of ‘ghost hunters’ are just completely full of it, and will tell them so to their faces… and I’d never heard of these APRA people, but this came recommended so I watched it, full screen at HD and often, and – well – I was creeped out enough to put it on WATT.

There are a couple of small issues as always, but I feel they are just that. For now at least.

Could still be a hoax, but the chill felt very real.

  • It is not a shadow.
  • It has definition.
  • It seems to start standing up at the end.
  • It looks really sinister, even though “just a little girl.”

Do hit the 1080 resolution. I also strongly recommend seeing it in full screen.

Also a good discussion is ensuing here should you desire more opinions and leads. What do you think of this?


video 1

joininglife | October 15, 2009

This is the original from July 2000. This “phenomenon” was watched for 20 minutes before the call for the camera went out. A slow moving thunderhead sitting above Baltimore seen from 8 or 10 miles south became a head scratcher. The odd changes occur at :20, :31, :37, :58, and 1:26 When the filming came back to the thundercloud it was focussed on the left and wrong part of the cloud. You can see the weird thing happen again (@2:13 or so) as it was panned into the left side when it was in the middle right section. Any thoughts? Whatever it was it seemed VERY large, changing every 15 to 20 seconds.

fckwalm | July 18, 2009

some odd phenomenon in the sky off the pier looking towards the coast

Wow, those be cool, eh, matey?

Hat tip to RavenX at ATS for scoping it out and posting it over there in a piece called UFO In A Cloud??

I must admit that I, like most, am inside a lot and don’t watch clouds all that often. When I have not a lot has really happened… just bad timing… but I must say these two videos have struck me as very, very cool. The second one even stumped the resident weatherman in the resulting thread of comments… and that’s pretty sporty!

So, which one is weirder to all you folks? Which clip makes you say “Whoa”?

For me it’s the mysterious second video, if for no better reason than the fact that to these eyes that freaky deaky motion “it” goes through looks almost organic and close to alive, as opposed to the first video’s “spy casting his flashlight [torch] about” look way up there on top of that cloud. They both qualify for a solid WTF in my opinion.

I’m no meteorologist so I can’t offer up any real insight into what the heck these two lucky groups managed to see and capture for us… these videos are here at WATT both for their wow factor and to add yet another piece to the Fortean puzzle that is our world. Enjoy…

Strange. Very strange.

And disconcerting.

Disappointing, too.

Then again it is NASA. A rather bizarre organization, NASA.

You see, this post was initially inspired by my running across an interesting page at Lunar Explorer Italia last night titled  AS 15-83-11218 and the Stephenville UFO: a VERY SMART image-comparison (by Carlo Contu). As you no doubt have gathered from said title, Mr. Contu noticed that the Apollo image in question and the sportiest image of the infamous Stephenville, Texas UFO are remarkably similar. You know the one, the pretty rainbow colored squiggly line in the night sky…

So I Googled up the image number, all set to do a session in Photoshop. But it wasn’t available nice and large at  NASA History’s Apollo Image Library… in fact they don’t even list the magazine as existing at all! What’s up with that? Note that they do list magazines for which they have no pictures to show yet… so, why not 83?

All was not lost, as they are all shown on the Lunar and Planetary Institute’s Apollo Image Atlas… but the images at LPI are all small, all at low resolution and none are really suitable for delving into in hopes of doing any sort of confident analysis. Some clues came out, though…

Here’s the text at the LPI page for this magazine:

Apollo Image Atlas

70mm Hasselblad Image Catalog

Apollo 15, Magazine ??

Images AS15-83-11218 to AS15-83-11234

Why does it say “Magazine ??”? Huh? What was that? Note, of course, that right below that line, in the picture range it clearly states  AS15-83-xxx to AS15-83-xxx. 83, again, is the magazine number.

Ah, I see, when you go to the individual photos it lists right below them their confusion’s source, they don’t know the Letter sub-designation of magazine 83. Well, why not? And even so does not knowing the letter therefore qualify it’s contents for near oblivion, displayed small and low-res on a sub-site for the Apollo program?

Note: For those not familiar with magazines, they are a removable part of the Hasselblad camera, a film holding ‘magazine,’  pre-loaded with film that eliminates the need to string the film through the camera as in a standard 35mm camera. They just snap on and off the back.

Note, too, that 83 was not the first magazine used by the Apollo 15 crew, so although there seems to be some sort of labeling error, I don’t imagine that there were any other issues with it. The Image Atlas starts at 82… which naturally makes me wonder about the existence of 1 through 81, but that’s not completely relevant here. The ones they do show are otherwise sequential in content.

As you can see below, the images captured are intriguing… to say the least… especially the last one, the swoopy, streaky and oh so freaky AS15-83-11234.

What do they show? I can’t say as I know. I can speculate as well as you can, but unless the impossible happens and the crew of 15 give us a play-by-play description, speculation is all we’ve got. Another thing to speculate about is why are there only 17 pictures? Why did they stop snapping? Must see if I can find anything in the transcripts, but, I rather doubt that if there was anything exciting going on it’d still be within them.

I really do like that last one… what the hell is all that? It’s absolutely fascinating. Was there an encounter with something, something we can barely comprehend, way out there in the cold, vast darkness of space?

Hmmm?

An area of high strangeness lies ahead… be alert… be aware… be safe.

The Thing On The Moon by iggymak

Ah, yes, well, here we have the lovely Luz along with righteous dude Darren both modeling variations of my Thing On The Moon Tshirt, which celebrates what may just be the strangest thing that I have ever clapped eyes on — namely, well, the “thing” — discovered back in the day by none other than the notorious Mr. John Lear.

It’s on a photo taken on the exceptionally notorious far side of the Moon… by the intrepid crew of Apollo 8.

A high resolution version, that is; obtained by Lear from his buds a bit before they got real strict about taking stuff like that out of circulation. Score!

This design is my enhancement of a crop of this particular anomaly from that very high res version.

If you’re motivated, the official NASA image number is AS8-12-2209.

High Strangeness at it’s best, eh?!

I mean… seriously… people… wtf is that?!

Apollo 12 – Pete Conrad – SLA panel “Leaving Area at a High Rate of Speed.”

Ha ha hahaha…

So, apparently, we’re to think that discarded pieces of our spacecraft can just take off on their own, eh?

Right.

Well… as you can clearly hear… Pete doesn’t believe it for one second… “Gee whiz” indeed! Good man, our Pete. Right on, man.

Hey, NASA… Take off, eh!

Apollo 14 , EVA 1 – “We’ve Had Visitors Again”

Edgar Mitchell and Alan Shepard on the Moon discussing the “Visitors”

This exchange always brings a smile… so matter-of-fact… so mundane… so… intriguing!

In my humble opinion, they’re being quite serious — but in a manner calculated to be taken as quite light hearted by the average listener. To hint at something that affected them deeply, (which makes me hold them ever dearer), yet still not break their military secrecy requirements. Same for the “Santa Claus” remarks and others made during the various missions.

Naturally we all want to know exactly what those words really meant; not to mention how they knew the visitors had been there in the first place; but the same loyal and patriotic quality that led to those wonderfully conceived spur of the moment quotes means that they’re not going to betray their oaths.

Although I must say that that may be starting to change in hearing commentary from Edgar Mitchell, who’s in this film, Buzz Aldrin and Story Musgrave. Maybe Neil Armstrong made a hint, but I feel very strongly that the man should be left alone, and I’ll personally clock you if you don’t. The others are willing and able. Respect our heroes.

I will never, by the way, be at all comfortable with the need for classified broadcast channels, oaths of secrecy, withholding of evidence and all the other BS on missions for an allegedly civilian agency that haunts us to this day. The government surely doesn’t think too highly of us.

Apollo 15 – TV Flyover – UFO’s  shadow on lunar surface.

Fascinating. A clip excised from one of the broadcasts this one is… and do check out that lovely hugh speed, independently moving shadow! Woot! Note that the astronaut manning the camera most definitely notices it and does his level best to track it… without mentioning it!

That is really cool.

I speculatively suppose that the command module either just happened to be flying along a regular route, as it were, or they had themselves an escort. I suspect the former as being more likely and that they were just in a right-place right-time sort of continuum…

UFO spotted outside Apollo command module window?

Now this is a good one. And a new one on me! And on a television documentary, no less… very impressive. Good find Easy!

It’s pretty bright out there, so I imagine they were still in good proximity to home, but that object is definitely not something ordinary.

You’d need to go a long way to prove it’s one of those tedious ice particles. The motion just doesn’t say ice to me. You’re welcome to try of course.

The stationary one(s) are likely reflections as far as I can tell, but might be something else as well, I suppose.

– – – –

It’s been slow of late and work is encroaching on quality Fortean time (which I suppose is a good thing =)) so I thought I’d put a few little things together for a postable post.

Many thanks to eagle-eyed Pegasus researcher Easynow for these films.

Yes, indeed… just what in the hell was down there?

I’d really, seriously, like to know…

Was just catching up on my reading over at SHTF411.com by checking out Ocker’s latest post called NASA’s Images and strange Lunar anomalies which presents the nice little video he just made and thought I’d share an extract from a reply therein made by the tireless Pegasus Research Consortium researcher known only as Exuberant1 which I think should, by rights, set off at least a few curiosity triggers in my reader’s heads… because Lunar (not to mention all the other bodies out there) anomaly research needs all the warriors we can muster, after all. And don’t worry, there are more than enough of them to go around.

There’s a lot to be gleaned by careful reading of the transcripts of the astronaut’s conversations during the missions, and the different copies of them, and listening to the recordings… (those that have been released, anyway), for insight into some of the things that went on up there. As you’ll see below, there are spots within them that can really set off one’s imagination.

So here ya go… dig it, droogies…

An Apollo astronaut can hardly believe it….

Sometimes the astronauts got disturbed and they just didn’t want to look down at the moon at all….

It turns out that there is so much stuff on the moon, that it is enough make a man’s head hurt:

(John Young, Apollo 16)

He wouldn’t look. There was too much he didn’t understand…

..And it had nothing to do with the albedo or sunlight.

What could possibly be down there that that would make one of our Finest not want to look at it, what did he not want to see?!

What did he not even want his friend Charlie to see? What the hell was down there?!

Perhaps it had something to do with “them”:

“Just keep on the book”

“That’s why I’m purging the fuel cell”

-Charlie already knows, and that is why he is busying himself…

So again, I ask you… just what in the hell was down there?

You kids and your technology!

I am fond of saying that the further from Earth we go, the weirder things get in a general sense. You’ll never convince me of otherwise. Ever. This object is just the latest in the ever-so-wacky universe that lies way, way, way “out there.”

About the only thing agreed upon so far is that it isn’t a comet and has been therefore classed as an asteroid, based solely on composition… it’s assumed, more specifically to be the result of a high speed asteroidal hit-and-run. You know what happens when you assume.

So we need to know exactly how, if it’s a scooting junk pile of the shattered remains of two rocks whacking into each other, do we get this absolutely fabulous shape… a shape more reminiscent of some kind of alien battle cruiser from a slick Hollywood movie?

Assuming that the “crosspiece” is asteroid A’s trail, how did it make such a hard left turn? I’d always been taught that objects, especially objects in space, tend to go in pretty much straight lines, unless there’s something wickedly dense close by… right? Hence everyone’s, scientists and debunkers, too, reaction being something somewhat similar to … what’s all this, then?

Not to mention that 460 foot wide glowing “rock” at the leading edge of the aforementioned asteroid A’s trail… hmmm… anyone?

So strange is this thing that even arch NASA supporter and “ice crystals and debris” flogger Jim Oberg himself has called it a UFO… yes… he called it a UFO…

In fact, I spotted it first in the very thread started by Jim Oberg at the AboveTopSecret conspiracy site :

“Spiral UFO” Photographed by Hubble — in the Asteroid Belt!!

Sorta spiral shaped, maybe more cross-shaped…

but weird all the same…

Suspected Asteroid Collision Leaves Odd X-Pattern of Suspected Asteroid Collision Leaves Odd X-Pattern of Trailing Debris

hubblesite.org…

FEBRUARY 2, 2010: Something awfully curious is happening 100 million miles from Earth in the asteroid belt. There’s a newly discovered object that superficially looks like a comet but lives among the asteroids. The distinction? Comets swoop along elliptical orbits close in to the Sun and grow long gaseous and dusty tails, as ices near the surface turn into vapor and release dust. But asteroids are mostly in circular orbits in the asteroid belt and are not normally expected to be “volatile.”

photo – imgsrc.hubblesite.org…

And then there’s this piece, too, an article, Space UFO baffles boffins, at The Sun, a not too journalistic journal, but this they couldn’t mess up… for an additional perspective…

THIS amazing UFO has left scientists baffled — after boffins claimed it was NOT a comet streaking through space.

It was first spotted early last month so astronomers turned the Hubble telescope on it last week to get these close up images.

The object — named P/2010 A2 — is of a type never before seen by stargazers and orbits in a satellite belt between Mars and Jupiter. (emphasis mine)

Despite its tail they have ruled out it being a comet, as there is no gas in its trail.

The 140-metre nucleus is also offset from the centre of the tail and its structure is very unusual.

The most likely theory is that it is debris from a collision between two asteroids which were likely to have smashed together at a speed of 15,000 kilometres an hour, five times the speed of a rifle bullet.

The resulting collision would have released more energy than a nuclear bomb.

It is believed that pressure from sunlight then spread the debris out into a trail.

Dr Robert J Nemiroff, astrophysicist at Michigan Technological University and the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, said: “Future study of P/2010 A2 may better indicate the nature of the original collision and may help humanity better understand the early years of our Solar System, when many similar collisions occurred.”

He added: “What is this strange object? First discovered on ground based LINEAR images on January 6, the object appeared unusual enough to investigate further with the Hubble Space Telescope last week.

“What Hubble saw indicates that P/2010 A2 is unlike any object ever seen before. At first glance, the object appears to have the tail of a comet.

“Close inspection, however, shows a 140-metre nucleus offset from the tail centre, very unusual structure near the nucleus, and no discernable gas in the tail.

“Knowing that the object orbits in the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter, a preliminary hypothesis that appears to explain all of the known clues is that P/2010 A2 is the debris left over from a recent collision between two small asteroids.

“If true, the collision likely occurred at over 15,000 kilometres per hour, five times the speed of a rifle bullet, and liberated energy in excess of a nuclear bomb.

“Pressure from sunlight would then spread out the debris into a trailing tail.”

The mysterious object was circling about 90 million miles (144 million km) away from Earth when it was spotted.

I just think it’s seriously beyond cool — and although I don’t think that it’s a cruiser by any means — I just want to know what in the hell that thing really is…

I’ve been reading USO reports as a distraction from the horrors of life… and somewhere in the midst of it I got off track… and became aware of this documentary on the ongoing Hessdalen Project, which I think is really very nicely done so I’m posting it here for you all to enjoy.

Hessdalen’s held a fascination for me right from the start, not only because of the phenomena itself, but also because it’s the only, as far as I know, anomalous event being studied full-time by actual scientists, from two countries, with the full backing of a college and the Norwegian military. They even have a Summer Camp where college kids go and help out for a week. Talk about providing a little inspiration to pursue science! What could be better?

This is how anomalies should be dealt with. I tire of all the cultish “prophets” and all the other charlatans running amok these days… and their wide-eyed credulous true believers as well… they just ruin it all and place tremendous delays on the arrival of real knowledge.

Off topic note: You may have noted in the fourth video Bjørn Gitle Hauge’s tale of the blue spiral trail that was generated by an instance of the Hessdalen phenomenon. Just sayin.’
