Seriously, What's Up with the Moon?

(To check out the actual picture of the hole, go to
What's this?  It's a big black hole on the moon.  And yet another "moon" posting?  Well, ...yes.  Because -WoW!-  All kinds of new discoveries are being made on our moon, "the moon."  (There's a moon in the sky and its called the moon).  First there was the recent (recent? really? Yes, quite recent actually) discovery of WATER on the moon.  Now, they (Junichi and friends) have discovered a "curiousity" in the appearance of a large black hole (a hole in the ground, not a 'blackhole') which scientists think must be a LAVA TUBE.  This is strange because usually lava tubes must appear as a series of holes, not just one singular hole.  Check out this clip from Way to go Japan.  The Kaguya satellite is doing its job, and so is Junichi.  Wow, Junichi is quite a name.  Sounds more like a name for some sort of puzzle or curse.
Junichi Haruyama and colleagues report that they have discovered a mysterious hole in the lunar surface in high resolution images from the Kaguya spacecraft. The hole is 65 meters in diameter and is located in the volcanic Marius Hills region on the near side of the moon, right in the middle of a long sinuous rille. Sinuous rilles are thought to be formed by flowing lava, either on the surface or in enclosed lava tubes.
Couldn't this hole be a fresh impact crater? Nope. Haruyama's team observed the hole nine separate times, at various illumination angles, and even when the sun was almost directly overhead it looked mostly black, suggesting that it is very deep. They calculate a depth of around 88 meters, so the hole is deeper than it is wide. No impact crater is like that. Another possibility is that the hole is due to some sort of volcanic eruption, but there is no sign of volcanic deposits like lava flows or ash emanating from the hole. The hole is isolated, so it isn't likely to be due to a fracture in the lunar crust either – you would expect such a fracture to form a chain of holes.
...So what exactly do they make of this looney lunar sphincter?...
Haruyama's team concluded that the most likely explanation is that the hole that they discovered is a "skylight" – a location where the roof of a lava tube collapsed, either when the lava filling the tube flowed away, or later in the moon's history due to an impact, moonquake, or tidal forces from the Earth. If it is a lava tube, their calculations based on the multiple images of the hole show that the tube could be 370 meters across.

Lava tubes are important in understanding how lava was transported on the early moon, but they are not just a scientific curiosity: they may also provide valuable refuges for future human explorers. The surface of the moon is not protected from the harsh radiation of space by a magnetic field or a thick atmosphere, so a long term human presence would be most feasible if astronauts could spend most of their time shielded underground.
So you see, this is quite a fascinating find for several reasons.  Holy Haruyama! -future human explorers could use these moon tubes as an early moonbase, perhaps.  I guess it makes sense that we are discovering scientific anomalies like this (and water on the moon) because we've only been to the moon less than a handful of times.  But still, the nagging question (Junichi) once again arises, "Why haven't we ever gone back to the moon?" 
Seriously though, why haven't we gone back to the moon?  I mean, we achieve this great feat and then ...just leave it at that?  Why would we go to our moon just once -except for a few "quick scoops" (as astronaut Col. Gordon Cooper explained)?  I've heard that we don't have the money, or that NASA is saving up for Mars, but, given the resources used and NASAs budget (not to mention the military's enormous black budget), that doesn't seem quite right.  This makes me wonder if those who claim that Armstrong described an intimidating alien presence on the moon aren't accurate after all.  But, ...who knows?  Perhaps it truly is just the money.  ....(doesn't seem right, I say)

Well, only 5 days till the full moon.  Check it out (binoculars are awesome on the moon!).  You may just observe some "transient lunar luminosities."  And speaking of full, I hope everyone had a fantastic Thanksgiving holiday.  I sure did.  Butternut squash stuffed with pecans and marshmellow cream, mashed potatoes and mushroom gravy, greenbean casserole, fresh baked bread, chestnut stuffing, celebration roast, pumpkin pie, quinoa pilaf, homemade applesauce....  so much to be thankful for.

UFOs Over Austin, Texas?

Howdy, y'all!
I was initially very hesitant to post about this, because, you know, I'd hate to discredit the subject of UFOs with crappy misinformation.  BUT, (there's always a big but) since I live in Austin, as soon as I saw this posted from MyFox News I just had to look into it.
Turns out, Chris Hardman, from Houston has filmed over 50 of these lights -er, "ufos" over Houston, Austin, and Dallas.  Hmmmm...  I'VE never seen one of these (but I do see a lot of planes and helicopters).  Okay, ...judging from the videos (available on YouTube as well as the news), this guy and his friends definitely sound pretty "country" (as they call it here).  -Normally I would say ...redneck-y.  (no offense, Chris, if you read this ...if you're able to read this -just kidding!)  Seriously, nothing wrong with country.

Nevertheless, whether he's a redneck or not, as a girlfriend of mine once said; A Hardman is Good to Find.   I will watch as many of these videos, search as many blog sites, news forums etc. on this guy as I can -so you don't have to.  Hell, I may even try to track him down -he's not far.  In the meantime, you can fast forward through time by just reading on.  -I'll be right back. . .  .  .   .
   .    .   .  .  . . . ...Let's do the timewarp again... . . .  .  .   .   .    .

....OK, I'm back.
Long story short, -whew!, that's a lot of shaking lights; -I feel like I'm six buds deep.  I couldn't manage to get a hold of Mr. Hardman (because I never tried, to be perfectly honest), and I couldn't find a lot of response on the interweb.  However, his story/video IS posted on quite a few blogs and news forums -I guess because it is so recent, there aren't many responses yet.  In fact, the video shown on the news (watch below) was shot last Saturday11/14/09, while I was out on the town celebrating my partner's big 30th Birthday.  It was a raucus riot, and before the night ended I saw a few unidentified flying objects, but sadly, nothing extra-terrestrial. 
       So, I'm afraid I'm going to have to leave this one wide open.  I'm not sure what to think.  Yes I know that ufo's responding to lighter flicks sounds corny and crazy, but these days, I'm frankly pretty unbiased on the far-out-o-meter (in fact, some people would even say that I, myself, am pretty far out).  Some people think these are real, (and they've actually seen lights like this before), some people say these kinds of ufo sightings are increasing, and some people say that Mr. Hardman needs to invest in a tripod.  (To be honest, that'd help a bit, but he'd still need to move the camera to follow the thing, right?). 
       Anyhow, please watch his most recent video below -its very quiet (if you're at work) and not very long.  This video shows this "ufo" swooping down & appearing to get much closer to Mr. Hardman.  At first, I thought it was just the camera zooming in, but after looking at the background stars, I'm not sure if zooming would be possible...  Anyhow, check it out, and see if you think the "ufo" is going down on him or not.   ...I think you'll get a kick out of it.  I did.

So...... what do you think? Seems like the thing is going down on him, right?  Judging from the number of responses to my blog, I guess I'm asking myself this question.  Well, Greg, I have to say I think that Chris Hardman and his friends are recording some moving lights over Texas.  Whether they are helicopters, ufos, or something else ...I cannot say.  The video (above) showing the "ufo" getting closer to him is (after several viewings) somewhat impressive, or at least thought provoking.  ...If there is an easy way to do this (via zoom, or something else) please let me know -I'll be honest; I'm not extremely tech savvy. 
      I've added a couple of another video taken by Chris Hardman below.  I've also added a surprise video taken by "CallOnYahweh"?  Maybe this is the first clue to figure out what the hell this bullsh*t is all about! BTW If you type HardmanChris into YouTube, you'll find his channel, and links to his friends' channels.

The Curious Case of Gary McKinnon

Hello there,
Family visiting has kept me busy for the past couple of days.  As usual when Aaron and Celina visit (my partner's younger brother & his ...partner), it has been extremely rewarding!  (I mean 'rewarding' in the sense that they are fun and engaging and Aaron shared some interesting knowledge about lucid dreaming, not to indicate anything laborious or unpleasant).

Now, if you are already familiar with the case of Gary McKinnon, you may want to skip this paragraph, as I will briefly introduce and summarize his case for those who are not familiar.  Gary McKinnon: skinny, odd-looking, nerdy, surprisingly eloquent, British stoner dude who is into computers and ufo's.  In the late 90's until 2002 (during the time of high alert) he hacked into various NASA and US Air Force databases, as well as the Pentagon, searching for hidden classified information on UFOs and "free energy."  To the embarrasment of the U.S. gov't, Gary used a purchased software program called "Remotely Anywhere," a slow dial-up modem, and his own email address.  Needless to say, he was caught, and now, the US is claiming damages of $800,000 and that Gary compromised sensitive data.  The US is planning to extradite Gary from England, to be tried "and fried" (so-to-speak) as a terrorist in the US for what one prosecutor called "the biggest military computer hack of all time."  Lawyers, citizens, and a few members of Parliament are fighting to keep his trial in the UK, but so far they have not been entirely successful.

Why this is important:
That Gary McKinnon not be extradited from the UK and treated as a terrorist is important for several reasons. 
First of all, if a self-confessed hacker nerd, obsessed with a supposed "ufo cover-up" stays up at night in his girlfriend's apartment looking for proof of ufos by guessing passwords (and happens to guess correctly several times), this is far from "terrorist" activity.  Something is seriously not right with this situation. As soon as he was arrested by British Police in 2002, Gary immediately confessed to everything that he did.  This is not even a sketchy, super-high-tech break in we're talking about; he literally just assumed (correctly) that not all of the personnel with security clearance would have changed their password from "password."  Using software called "Remotely Anywhere" on a very slow dial-up modem, which took forever to display even partial images, -he wasn't even able to save anything. 
Several times (in poor judgement, he confesses) he even left nerdy messages like "I am solo," and "your security is crap."  He says that it is impossible that he caused damages anywhere remotely (pun intended) close to $800,000.  (This comes from the 'supposed' 5K of damage for every computer he was on, -which is baloney- and is being used to warrant his extradition to the U.S.) The main cost would simply be to update the (complete lack of) security on the government's databases.  Frankly, the US should hire him to revise their computer security, or at least, thank him for pointing out their gross negligence.  A more detailed account of Gary's case is provided on The Black Vault's Encyclopedia site:

So why the severe punishment (60 years in prison)?  Is the US government simply making an example of him, or do they feel threatened in some other way?  Perhaps "they" are hiding something....  Could it be that Gary found something he was looking for?

Gary claims to have found two folders (before and after) of NASA satellite images that had been modified.  He saw images in which large shadows on Earth's surface had been "airbrushed" out, as well as an image of a huge cylindrical object in orbit that was clearly no man-made satellite of any kind. [...I'm listening...go on]

Another finding includes documents mentioning 'non-terrestrial officers' and space-based 'fleet-to-fleet transfers'.

Interestingly, when asked if he found any other evidence of extra-terrestrial activity, he politely stated that he could not confirm or deny. ...perhaps a bargaining chip?... (perhaps not)
You can hear more from Gary directly in the brief interview below!

Gary has stated that if anyone, or any government, is hiding information that would benefit humanity, that is wrong.  I, for one, agree completely.  Furthermore, the UK Computer Misuse Act of 1990 covers hacking into computers of foreign governments, so this should take precedence over the US-UK Extradition Treaty.  That would be 6 months of community service, or a maximum of 6 months in prison.  I repeat; he never even stole anyone's password, -the passwords were set to default!  Another note of concern is why he is being singled out, since during his 'explorations' he apparently found many other IP addresses that had accessed the databases, many of which originated from places like China.

Lastly, our talented friend Gary is also quite the musician.  Cool, huh?  I believe there is also a benefit compilation song featuring Chryssie Hynde of the Pretenders (awesome), called Chicago - Change the World. (original song by Graham Nash) 

> >>=NEWSFLASH=<< <
Apparently, today's launch of the space shuttle Atlantis was a success!  The shuttle is carrying several TONS of parts for the International Space Station (ISS).  I would tell you more, but surely you can look this up for yourself.  Goodbye for now.  Have a wonderful day, and keep your eyes to the skies (but don't crash or run into anything).

China Saucer

What's Up with China? 
They seem to have more UFO enthusiasm than we do.  -Not as much as Latin America, though  That's another post.

Surprisingly, a government owned chinese news site called Xinhua (or China View) has reported:

BEIJING, Nov. 10 -- Aliens are living in Yunnan, Heilongjiang and Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, according to a professor of physics at Yunnan University.

Zhang, 62, was just one of hundreds of sky watchers who convened to discuss unexplained phenomena at the October 31-November 16 Kunming UFO Forum, perhaps the only place in China where "have you seen the saucers?" is a preferred greeting.

UFOs are an "old" topic in China: the elderly took up about half the seats at the forum hosted by Zhang on Saturday, a half-empty hall with capacity for about 200. Zhang joined the Kunming UFO Research Association in 1980 and has shared sightings with associations from other provinces.

Read the entire article for yourself at

I don't know about that article... I mean, predicting ufos?  Um, could he have mentioned how? -or why?  Of course, 'aliens living in the mountains' is also kinda wierd, geez, was this guy born in the year of the loon?
...Who knows?  So, maybe you're thinking, "Hello...fotune cookie say: alien look like chinese lantern."  However, to be fair, there have been numerous mass sightings in China, such as the famous mass sighting recorded by millions of people all across Asia during the solar eclipse of 1981, of a bright, spiral shaped object. 
More Mas Sightings In China:
In recent months, there has been another solar eclipse, during which, viewers also witnessed (and videotaped) a UFO. 

Furthermore, even more recently, xinhua has reported yet another mass sighting  in China, which was captured on film (see above photo). 

According to, the Chinese government has also recently released footage of a ufo recorded in 1995.  The Chinese government has officially deemed the object in the video to be truly unidentified (either natural or extra-terestrial phenomenon), and as such, the video has been "classified" until just recently.

According to, the Chinese government also regularly collects UFO videos for the purpose of identification.

Finally, professional astronomers at China's Purple Mountain Observatory in Nanjiing, have stated that they have filmed an unidentified object for over 40 minutes. has reported:
The UFO world is alive with speculation that China is about to reveal details of startling and detailed footage of an unidentified flying object taken during the solar eclipse on July22.
Not wanting to jump to any conclusions, they have stated that they will be devoting the next 12 months studying the film data to determine what the object could represent. (although the object appears to have started as a glowing blue sphere and to have changed shape and appearance many times)

-There. -That's a good scientific response (the kind we see so little of portrayed by the American scientific community)  They have filmed a UFO.  They do not know what it could be.  They are NOT saying "it must be alien spacecraft."  But, they are also NOT saying, "this is stupid, it is obviously nothing."  They ARE saying: we will spend the next twelve months trying to determine what the object could be.

-Bravo!  ...I hope they find out.  (and I hope they tell us when they find out).

Atlantis Anomalies, Discovery's Strange Discovery... and Other NASA UFOs

        Are these cheezy B-rated fiction titles?  Well, they could be, but actually, these are NASA shuttles that have unwittingly captured some pretty amazing UFO footage.  Now, what are these "ufos" really?  Well, let me just say, in my effort to find out, I discovered enough NASA UFO footage to bore the hell out of anyone who isn't completely insane.  ...Seems like every time they go up there, they're filming something crazy... Maybe they should change their name to Now Another Strange Anomaly.

Actually, it is outer space, so its all quite fascinating.  HOWEVER, let me first say that several of these "videos" can be explained away quite simply, or at least, well enough for me to accept that they are nonsense.  Particles, debris, trash, ice crystals... -all of these things can be quite reflective in outer space, so if a small bright object appears to be floating through the camera view, it doesn't necessarily have to be a flying saucer.  That is, ...if it doesn't change speed or direction (or behave like a flying saucer).

Turns out, ONE out of this plethora of NASA videos, (which is by far the most famous), provides what seems to be the most substantial evidence that ufos are travelling around Earth.  -And even more unsettling, that we may have weapons of some sort that we're firing at them.

This is the video taken by the Discovery Shuttle in 1991.  I'll let you watch it first, before doing any sort of interprative analysis. Please take a moment (it's very short) and click to watch the video below:
(Actually, the main action sequence is from about 1:20-2:00; this is the original NASA footage, so you may want to skip the boring parts -although there are many anomalies in this video)

There are 3 main reasons why this video is (not to mention, the most famous) the most fascinating video evidence of UFOs to date.

1) You saw the video...  It shows several small moving objects (which must be either quite large or very bright) gliding over the Earth, and then a bright FLASH occurs.  Immediately after (or just as) this flash occurs, the objects (particularly the most prominent object) stops, and completely changes direction, zipping up and away from Earth. 

2) Even Better.  NASA has verified this video's authenticity by providing a public explanation of the recorded events.  Two astronauts (who were aboard the Discovery when the video was taken) offer an explanation of the footage that dispels any thought of anomalous activity.  Their explanation is that A: the bright objects observed are ice particles  B: the flash is the shuttle booster firing, and C: the particles change direction due to gases from the booster firing.

3) Now, the very BEST evidence that this is actual footage of our governments firing sometthing at UFOs, is ...that ...the official NASA explanation of this video has been scientifically proven to be false.
First, the shuttle's camera is focused to infinity, which means that anything close up will NOT be in focus if it shows up at all.  This is apparent because the camera is focused on the Earth, and toward the end of the video, when the camera pans down to the shuttle bay, the shuttle bay is out of focus until refocusing.  Certainly any particles of ice or anything nearby of moderate size would not show up, as such, on the video.  So, since the camera was focused on infinity, the bright objects are obviously very far away and relatively close to Earth in relation to the shuttle.
Second, if the "flash" is the shuttle firing its attitude adjustment jets (as NASA claims) the view of Earth and background star would change.  Also, mission control never authorized such a maneuver.  Furthermore, the primary moving object actually slows and stops a second before the flash appears.  Finally, scientists have explained that firing the jets couldn't cause a particle to slow and stop prior to changing direction.

Analysis of the video shows that the "firing" eminates from around Australia.  There is a large American installation at Pine Gap, Australia, belonging to the supersecret National Reconnaissance Office (which is loosely tied to the Air Force, but reports to the CIA).  This base is treated by Aussies as somewhat of an "area 51" type of base, and is involved in the STAR WARS type satellite control and missile defense systems you may have heard of.

To sum up; It is unknown if Pine Gap is the source of this "firing," and it is unknown what these extraordinarily fast-moving objects (which appear to evade the firing).  What is known is that NASA's explanation of the video has been proven to be incorrect.

It seems that the reason why the scientific community is so quick to accept erroneous explanations and to ignore this kind of evidence (as well as mass sightings, pilot sightings, radar readings & ufo footage in general), is that the very notion of "ufos" is culturally shunned and linked to superstition and craziness.  It is culturally crazy to entertain the idea of flying saucers, or ufos, and the scientific community seems to be reinforcing this cultural bias, which is very UNscientific.  They should know better, after all, it was culturally crazy to entertain the notion that the Earth is just one small planet orbiting our sun.  Not long ago, it was "scientifically proven" that getting to the moon would be impossible, because the fuel needed would greatly outweigh the means of leaving Earth. 

I say its time for all of the general scientific community and skeptics to step up and face the issue and analyze the facts.  I guess people are always scared of the unknown.  I, for one, want to know ...what's up with the aliens?  I'm sure I'm helping things with my posts about lesbian nazi hookers, (jk -c'mon, it was funny), but I think people need to start accepting the topic of ufos as a serious matter and a real phenomenon. 

On that note, I will leave you with another interesting video of apparent NASA ufo footage. [Please note: I am unimpressed with the "tether" sequence (at the end), which can be explained as particle reflections]

Lesbian Nazi Hookers Abducted by UFOs and Forced into Weight Loss Programs?

Okay, if you know anything about comedy, you know that this is a reference to Wierd Als' movie, UHF. 

However, thousands of "abduction" cases have been recorded and analysed by professionals such as one Harvard Medical School graduate and Pulitzer prize winner, Dr. John E. Mack.  He sought to uncover and explain the mystery of so-called "alien abuction" cases, and has subsequently decided, after hundreds of thorough interviews, that the phenomenon is real, and not psychological in nature.

Now, I'm not certain how I feel about the whole abduction phenomenon, but I can assure you that I will continue to probe the issue until I get to the bottom of it, if you know what I mean...

Until such a time, here is a random, wierd video for your enjoyement.  I find it quite interesting....

MOVIE REVIEW: The Fourth Kind


I was privelleged enough to win a pre-screening ticket to this movie on, and I will do my best, now, to take on the role of the film critic.  [insert cheezy French accent] ...bud why ze french haccent, yew ask?  eh, do yew say ...just for ze fun!

       Okay, this movie claims to contain actual video and audio clips from actual psychiatric patients who have participated in a sleep disorder study under the real Dr. Abigail Tyler.  -And there is a LOT of audio and video footage throughout the movie.  [SPOILER ALERT] In fact, some of this footage shows the patients convulsing in terror and then mysteriously levitating!  So all of these patients are having terrible nightmares which are difficult to remember, ...but they all remember white owls with large eyes staring at them.  Turns out, the dreams are actually real, and the owls are actually aliens.  Then, late one night while recording her thoughts on tape, Dr. Tyler conveniently falls asleep without stopping the tape -and as the tape plays back we hear (within seconds) her door squeaks open, she starts screaming bloody murder and these deep, cheezy, robotic & distorted sounding alien voices start shouting things in the ancient Sumerian language.  A professor of ancient language is able to translate part of this Sumerian speak, and all the while, the movie asserts that these recordings are legitimate, and that all of this is documented and real.
        Turns out, (according to many sources), as hard as this may be to fathom, everything in this movie is made up.  The crappy part is, it looks and sounds insultingly fake as well.  As much as I'd love a real-life type alien abduction movie to believe, I found myself sighing dissapointedly, "give me a break," way too many times, almost from the very beginning.  The "actual Dr. Tyler," supposedly severely mentally ill or traumatized, looks like she's wearing a pound of white make up with shadow.

       Yet, the very worst part of this film, is that it takes the very real phenomenon of alien abduction, combines it with a few "exorcist-type" levitation elements, and ties it up with some Sumerian-speaking demon aliens, thereby making a complete mockery of many things that may actually true or interesting.  There are dozens of genuinely fascinating pieces of historical evidence regarding Von Daniken's "ancient astronaut theory," but by using bits of this fascinating information, this movie craps on all of that, giving people one more reason to say, "see, that's all a load of shite."  There are countless well-documented accounts of alien abduction from all around the world, yet none of them (that I'm familiar with) involve evil, Sumerian-speaking dragon aliens who claim to be God. (they never actually show the aliens -I just threw 'dragon' in there for the heck of it)

      Don't get me wrong, though; Having said all of that, it was still a somewhat decent time at le cinema.

Alien Base On the Moon: LUNA? or, Looney Tunes?

So, several sources claim that, on the side of the moon that never faces Earth (also called the dark side of the moon), there is an ET base or outpost or something -and that NASA and the Russian Space Agency both know about it!  Is this crazy or what?  This sounds even nuttier than pretending your child has been carried off by a home-made UFO balloon., [calming hands]...folks... let us examine these claims and search for any possible sound evidence before dismissing it completely, ...shall we? -we shall.  After all, even the famous scientist Carl Sagan, an outspoken UFO skeptic, claimed that we should not be utterly surprised should we find alien artifacts on the moon.

FIRST - There are the totally unverified reports (though confirmed by several former NASA employees [Otto Binder and Maurice Chatelain], Russian scientists, and the VHF guys who hacked the transmission) that Armstrong & Aldrin found giant ships on the moon, lining a crater, that basically "warned" them off the moon.  Karl Wolf, US Air Force, has also testified that in 1965, while repairing electronic photographic equipment at Langley Field for NASAs Lunar Orbiter project, he was told by a second class airman, "by the way, we've discovered a base on the back side of the moon." Watch his testimony...

SECOND - There are the well known phenomena of lunar lights called "lunar luminosities," reported more that 200 times, which scientists have no explanation for, despite various hypothoses such as atmospheric lightning and volcanic activity.  Large moving shadows, flashing lights, and beams of light have been reported traversing across the lunar surface.

THIRD - The eerie fact that, despite plans to build a moon base, and many other extremely good reasons to go back to the moon, we have not returned to the moon at all (except for quick soil scoops and such) since the original moon landing.

FOURTH - The Clementine Images. (taken directly from NASAs clementine image database)
NASA has provided the public with images from the 1995 Clementine satellite orbit of the moon (around the far side of the moon).  Several of these images contain portions that appear to be "smudged" or airbrushed.  Interestingly, these smudges appear in shapes that would fit giant towers and structures.

FIFTH - The images from Clementine that NASA provided to the public, are only 170,000 of the approximately 1,800,000 images taken by Clementine.  The rest of the images taken by Clementine are CLASSIFIED.  What kind of moon craters present classified information?

SIXTH - I don't really have a sixth, but.... I don't think I need one.  (It's a blog, not a book)

So, for now, stew on that.  You have NASA images of anomalies on the moon, classified moon images, rumors of encounters on the moon, the fact that we haven't returned to the moon, and all of the astronauts who claimed to have been followed by UFOs.  WIERD, HUH?.... let me know what you think.

....'til next time...

Astronauts Who Claim to Have Seen UFOs

As promised, a follow-up to my "50 cent believes in aliens" post with something a bit more substantial.  There is a shockingly large number of astronauts, astronomers, and high ranking military officers who report direct experiences with or knowledge of UFOs and/or extra-terrestrial beings.

"Like who?" you may ask.  And my reply would be....

Major Gordon Cooper (one of the original Mercury astronauts, and the last American astronaut to fly alone)
During the final orbit around Earth during his 22-orbit flight, he reported to the tracking station at Muchea (in Australia) that he could see a glowing greenish object quickly approaching his capsule.  This object was solid and was tracked on radar by Muchea.  Cooper's sighting was reported by the National Broadcast Company, but when Cooper landed, reporters were told that they would not be allowed to question him about the UFO sighting.
Major Cooper was a firm believer in UFOs. Ten years earlier, in 1951 he had sighted a UFO while piloting an F-86 Sabrejet over Western Germany. They were metallic, saucer-shaped discs at considerable altitude and could out-maneuver all American fighter planes.

Major Cooper also testified before the United Nations:
"I believe that these extra-terrestrial vehicles and their crews are visiting this planet from other planets... Most astronauts were reluctant to discuss UFOs."
"I did have occasion in 1951 to have two days of observation of many flights of them, of different sizes, flying in fighter formation, generally from east to west over Europe."

And according to a taped interview by J. L. Ferrando, Major Cooper said:
"For many years I have lived with a secret, in a secrecy imposed on all specialists in astronautics. I can now reveal that every day, in the USA, our radar instruments capture objects of form and composition unknown to us. And there are thousands of witness reports and a quantity of documents to prove this, but nobody wants to make them public.
 Ed White (first American to walk in space) and James McDivitt
In June 1965, astronauts Ed White and James McDivitt were passing over Hawaii in a Gemini spacecraft when they saw a weird-looking metallic object. The UFO had long arms sticking out of it. McDivitt took pictures with a cine-camera. Those pictures have never been released.

James Lovell and Frank Borman (Gemini astronauts)

In December 1965 James Lovell and Frank Borman saw a UFO during their second orbit of their record-breaking 14 day flight. Borman reported seeing an unidentified spacecraft some distance from their capsule. Gemini Control, at Cape Kennedy told him that he was seeing the final stage of their own Titan booster rocket, but Borman confirmed that he could see the booster rocket AND the ufo.

During James Lovell's flight on Gemini 7:
Capcom: This is Houston. Say again 7.
Capcom: Gemini 7, is that the booster or is that an actual sighting?
Capcom: ...Estimated distance or size?
Neil Armstrong (unconfirmed) and Edwin "Buzz" Aldrin (Gemini astronauts who walked on the moon)
Buzz Aldrin has been filmed in several interviews describing his sighting of a UFO during a Gemini flight.

A bit more interesting, but unconfirmed is that, according to several sources, on their famous walk on the moon, Neil Armstrong and Buzz apparently found giant craft on the moon that "warned them off."

After one of the astronauts describes some sort of light coming from a crater, ground control asks for more information.  Then the broadcast goes silent.  According to former NASA employee Otto Binder, Neil Armstrong was recorded by VHF hackers who bypassed NASAs broadcasting outlets:
Apollo11: These "Babies" are huge, Sir! Enormous! OH MY GOD! You wouldn't believe it! I'm telling you there are other spacecraft out there, Lined up on the far side of the crater edge! They're on the Moon watching us!
 Donald Slayton (Mercury atronaut)
In an interview, Donald Slayton revealed having approached very close to a metallic, saucer-shaped UFO in 1951, while test-flying a P-51 fighter in Minneapolis.
Major Robert White reported on July 17, 1962, having seen a "grayish" UFO at close range while flying an X-15.

Joseph A. Walker (NASA pilot)
On May 11, 1962 Joseph Walker said that one of his tasks was to detect UFOs during his X-15 flights. He had filmed five or six UFOs during his record breaking fifty-mile-high flight in April, 1962. It was the second time he had filmed UFOs in flight. During a lecture at the Second National Conference on the Peaceful Uses of Space Research in Seattle, Washigton he said:

"I don't feel like speculating about them. All I know is what appeared on the film which was developed after the flight." -Joseph Walker
To date none of those films has been released to the public for viewing.
Commander Eugene Cernan (Apollo 17 Commander)
Eugene Cernan, commander of Apollo 17, discussed UFOs in a Los Angeles Times article in 1973, stating:

"...I've been asked (about UFOs) and I've said publicly I thought they (UFOs) were somebody else, some other civilization."
Maurice Chatelain (Former NASA contractor for Apollo communication systems)
In 1979 Maurice Chatelain confirmed that Armstrong had indeed reported seeing two UFOs on the rim of a crater. Chatelain believes that some UFOs may come from our own solar system -- specifically Titan.

"The encounter was common knowledge in NASA, but nobody has talked about it until now."
"...all Apollo and Gemini flights were followed, both at a distance and sometimes also quite closely, by space vehicles of extraterrestrial origin - flying saucers, or UFOs, if you want to call them by that name. Every time it occurred, the astronauts informed Mission Control, who then ordered absolute silence."
NASA's Scott Carpenter stated: "At no time, when the astronauts were in space were they alone: there was a constant surveillance by UFOs."

Dr. Edgar Mitchell (Apollo astronaut)
Edgar Mitchell has been outspoken on his knowledge from first-hand eye-witnesses involved in the Roswell, NM crash, that a crashed saucer and alien bodies were indeed recovered, and that our governement monitors extra-terrestrial crafts.  For a fascinating and revealing interview with Dr. Edgar Mitchell on Discovery's website, click on this link:
WOW.  And that's not even all of them.  You have to admit that this is extremely significant.  If you google "The Disclosure Project" you can watch the youtube video documenting MANY more military officers, pilots, and former NASA employees, all testifiying under oath about their UFO experiences.  You can click on this link to go to the Disclosure Project website: 

You have to ask yourself, "what's more crazy? that all of these credible, high-ranking individuals are delusional or lying, ..or that they are simply telling the truth?"  I think that given the number and quality of the testimonials, it would be crazier if they were all lying, conspiring, or suffering from delusions. 

Also, it is important to remember that although NASA was started as, and is supposed to be a "civillian organization," it is under complete CIA and/or military control with National Security imposing upon its every move.  ALL video and audio transmissions, photos, press releases and -everything else has to be filtered through the federal government & approved prior to public release.

An interesting note -in 1994 NASA sent the Clementine satellite around the far-side of the moon.  Clementine took 1.8 MILLION images and only 170,000 of those images were released to the public.  The rest of the images are classified.  ...CLASSIFIED?  WTF?  Classified moon craters?  (I'll talk more about this on my upcoming MOON post...)

At least one cannot deny that "something" is certainly going on....

But for now, good night (or good day) depending on where you are and when you are reading this.  And if you're not reading this, that means that my typed words are somehow speaking directly to your brain and that is just altogether insane again I say Good Night!
