Mexico: Cameraman Records Unusual Object Over Morelia (2002)

Our friend and colleague Claudio Mora of La Esfera Azul sends us the following:

"In 2002, Guino Perez, a professional cameraman employed by Televisa Michoacán at the time, was able to capture a strange, unknown and static disc-shaped object as it engaged in nocturnal maneuvers over Cerro Punhuato in Morelia, Mexico. We learned of this material and researched it at the time thanks to the videographer himself, subjecting to the correspondin analyses and corroborating that the case was authentic, and given its characteristics, one of the most interesting ones captured at the start of 21st century in our country."

Astronomers Find a Purple Light in the Sky, and call it 'Steve'

Astronomers at Canada's University of Calgary have revealed a previously-uncatalogued, purple-colored luminous phenomenon in the sky, found through observations made by citizen scientists, and confirmed by satellite data. The phenomenon consists of a lighted band or ribbon that stretches across the sky, and although it is not actually a new phenomenon, nobody had bothered paying attention to it before now.

And for lack of a better name, the researchers called it 'Steve'.

Peru: Impressive New Findings Concerning Alleged ET Remains in Nazca
By Alex Sender

During the course of a recent investigation carried out by members of the Asociacion Peruana de Ufologia (APU), contact was made with the new owners of strange archaeological relics of supposedly alien origin, who have been given the pseudonym "Guardians of Atok Marka" in order to safeguard the identities of these people who live in the southern mountains of Peru, where they have over 2000 of these strange relics in their possession.

As will be recalled, in late 2016, two characters from the city of Cuzco - "Luis Quispe" or "Krawix" as well as Dante Rios, brought some of these remains to light, which added up to a dozen, and which included small mummified beings, skulls of extraterrestrial (sic) appearance, as well as giant hands with metallic incrustations. But in this case, the "Guardians of Atok Marka" have a much larger number of pieces, some of them similar to those held by the collectors in Cuzco, along with many other relics, each more intriguing than the previous one.

The "Guardians of Atok Marka" have over 2000 pieces in their possession, as was mentioned earlier. Among these are the mummified remains of entities ranging from 7 centimeters to 3 meters tall (3 inches to 9 feet). Upon detailed observation and contact by APU researchers, everything pointed to these objects being bones and soft tissue mummified with the passing of time and the conditions in which they were found.

When the existence of these remains in the hands of the collectors from Cuzco became known, all of these parts had been removed in a clandestine manner from a subterranean gallery located under the Ica Desert, specifically the Nazca Area, a province located to the south of the region.

According to the story offered by the "Guardians of Atok Marka", these remains were removed from a sacred site, protected by ancestral tutelary spirits for thousands of years, and which had never been located by the archaeological work being carried out at various locations of Nazca Province.

The Asociación Peruana de Ufología awaits the results of scientific tests that have already been commissioned by the "Guardians of Atok Marka" from a specialized organization with a view toward reaching a more satisfactory conclusion as to the origin and authenticity of these enigmatic relics. However, everything seems to suggest that we could be facing evidence of transcendental importance that would definitely change the course of humanity.

Dr. Anthony Choy, APU's director, and Lic. Rafael Mercado, e representatives of the Asociación Peruana de Ufologia, are the first Peruvian researchers to reach the guardians of this priceless and impressive collection of over 2000 pieces of seemingly non-human origin. The completion of the scientific tests being performed on them is crucial. It is also necessary to keep this subject from being distorted or manipulated by shadowy political interests.

The Asociación Peruana de Ufología shall continue to pursue this case.

Peru: Humanoid Remains Allegedly found in Ica

Message posted to Facebook only a short while ago (12:09 pm on 04/24/2017):

Dear Friends: The Asociacion Peruana de Ufologia (APU - Peruvian Ufology Assoc) Presents new and impressive findings regarding the extraterrestrial (sic) remains found in Nazca (Ica-Perú). Peruvian researchers have endeavored to reach the custodians of these priceless archaeological relics, which total over 2000 in number, constituting one of the greatest collection of relics of allegedly non-human origin. They could well change the course of human history should their validity be ascertained upon completion of the analyses being carried out. APU will pursue research on this important case.

Astronaut Gordon Cooper's Space Maps are being used to Find Sunken Treasure

Professional treasure hunter Darrell Miklos is currently organizing a series of treasure hunts, searching for sunken Spanish ships that may have been carrying gold plundered from the Americas. Filming the expeditions for a docu-series that will be shown on the Discovery Channel, called Cooper's Treasure, Miklos has a list of very promising candidate sites, provided by an unlikely source: a treasure map made by astronaut Gordon Cooper while he orbited the Earth in his Mercury capsule in 1963.

One of Cooper's duties while piloting the Faith 7 capsule was to map out potential nuclear threats, but some of the magnetic anomalies that he detected were too faint to be from atomic sources, and were far from land in the Caribbean Sea.

El detector LHCb y otros experimentos del gran colisionador de hadrones del CERN han registrado datos de una rara desintegración de mesones B (un tipo de partículas), que no se ajustan a las predicciones del modelo estándar. La discrepancia entre las medidas y la predicción teórica apuntan hacia una nueva física, en la que se presentan dos posibles candidatos para explicar las 'anomalías': una nueva partícula llamada Z’ y otra hipotética denominada leptoquark.

Gods, Man, War and Reality

Tom DeLonge has said that he will conduct a disclosure event on May 16. But what does disclosure actually mean, and, in a larger sense, what are the visitors anyway, and would disclosure even be about aliens from another planet? Tom refused to interview on Dreamland, so Whitley explores the ideas in his book Gods, Men and War, and what they mean in the context of his own experience of living with the visitors in his life.

Don't assume that you know what this is about. It is a very unexpected journey into a new vision of mankind and what we call aliens. It goes beyond the usual notions that aliens are creatures from another planet and that there were interventions from other worlds in the past that have formed humanity and human life and, in a sense, imprisoned us.

El elemento coronio y su pariente el geocoronio

En el largo proceso por el que se ha ido estableciendo la identidad de los elementos químicos, han aparecido en multitud de ocasiones errores de identificación de todo tipo1. Por ejemplo, a partir de las observaciones del espectro luminoso de una nebulosa llevadas a cabo por el astrónomo británico William Huggins en 1864, se propuso la existencia de un elemento desconocido al que se llamó nebulio. En 1927 se demostró que no era así, sino que el rastro extraño descubierto con el espectroscopio correspondería a cierta forma de oxígeno ionizado (O2+).


Incluso cuando ya estaba prácticamente olvidado, todavía se hablaba del nebulio en la prensa.
Recorte de “La Luz del porvenir”, agosto de 1927, num. 176, página 15.

Pero, sin duda, el elemento químico “imaginario” que más me ha llamado la atención fue el enigmático coronio. En observaciones del espectro de luz de la corona solar llevadas a cabo durante el eclipse de sol del 7 de agosto de 1869, se registró un línea verde de emisión correspondiente a una longitud de onda de 530,3 nm (línea coronal 1474 K). Este hecho fue observado de forma independiente tanto por el astrónomo estadounidense Charles Augustus Young, como por su compatriota, de origen escocés, William Harkness. Como la presencia de esa línea en el espectro de la corona solar no parecía corresponder a ningún elemento conocido, se estableció que se podría estar ante la presencia de un nuevo elemento, al que se llamó, por motivos obvios, como coronio. Hasta bien entrado el siglo XX, ya en los años treinta, no se estableció que, en realidad, el coronio no existía, sino que se trataba de átomos de hierro fuertemente ionizados (Fe13+). Del interés despertado por este elemento cabe recordar algunos recortes de la época, como éste de Octaviano Romero, de mayo de 1902, procedente de la revista El Mundo científico:

Desgraciadamente para los progresos de la ciencia, el estudio de la atmósfera coronal, limitado á los bre­ves momentos de duración de los eclipses totales, ha permanecido casi estacionario desde que en 1859 fue advertida por primera vez la raya verde en el espectro de la corona y pasó a la categoría de hecho demostrado la existencia real de esta sutilísima atmós­fera y que estaba constituida en todo o parte por un elemento desconocido en la tierra: el coronio; nombre dado desde el primer momento a la misteriosa mate­ria que afirmaba su presencia, en los últimos límites de las expansiones solares, por débiles radiaciones en el campo espectral de los analizadores.

Era natural que como en anteriores eclipses, en el de 28 de Mayo de 1900 despertase el interés científico el estudio de la corona, y a este punto dedicaron, efecti­vamente, su atención los hombres más eminentes en la Astrofísica distribuidos en la zona de la totalidad tanto en América como en Europa. (…)

(…) Dentro de la certeza que un hecho de observación puede inspirar, cuando ningún prejuicio ni causa racional de error cabe aducir contra él, admitimos como innegable que la atmósfera coronal se halla constituida casi exclusivamente por ambos gases [hidrógeno y coronio] y que éstos no se encuentran más ó menos uniformemente repartidos en toda la masa formando un medio homogéneo, sino superpuestos en el orden de sus densidades y ocupando por consiguiente el hidrógeno las zonas inferiores, inmediatamente encima de la región del helio, y el coronio las superiores, como una tenue, y en sus limites casi diáfana dilatación gaseosa esfumada y como disuelta en los vacíos del éter. La enorme fuerza expansiva de las masas centrales, sólo contrarrestada por la atracción solar, lanza incesantemente al espacio los elementos que la forman. La espectroscopia permite demostrar los efectos de esta proyección y establecer el hecho de que en el foco de materias incandescentes que constituye la atmósfera solar, los gases se encuentran superpuestos en el orden de sus pesos atómicos. Cuál sea la intensidad de esta fuerza proyectiva lo demuestra la altura de 60′ (2.500.000 kilómetros) a que se ha observado el coronio, la cual supone una velocidad inicial de proyección de la masa gaseosa de 400 kilómetros por segundo.

Un dato más curioso si cabe, con relación al coronio, se encuentra en que el padre de la teoría de la deriva continental, Alfred Wegener, sostuvo que en la alta atmósfera terrestre podría existir un análogo del coronio, al que se llamó geocoronio (la cosa llegó al punto de publicarse algunos estudios en los que se sugería emplear geocoronio como gas para dirigibles y globos aerostáticos… ¡si se lograba demostrar su existencia!)

Estimación de composición atmosférica siguiendo la teoría del geocoronio de Wegener.

Venezuela: Strange Object Over Caracas

Venezuelan researcher Héctor Escalante has posted the following image online. "April 19th, government and opposition forces are marching in the streets of Caracas," he writes. "A very tense moment. Meanwhile, something strange flies across the skies of the Venezuelan capital."

A surveillance drone of some sort, or a bona-fide UFO? Theologian and author Salvador Freixedo always cautioned us that non-human intelligences obtained a form of noursihment from the energy put forth by large human concentrations, whether on the battlefield, the sporting arena or the streets of a city on the verge of riot.

UFO Flap in Arizona?

There have been a number of UFO sightings in Arizona recently, one on April 10 which was photographed by one witness, Maricio Morales, and, according to Mr. Morales, videotaped by another witness a hundred miles away.

Approximately 10 minutes prior to the sighting, a large meteor was sighted over the region, but the anomaly does not appear to have been related to it. Mr. Morales states, "ABC15 is reporting that the photos were part of the meteor. They were not. The meteor struck about 10 minutes before I pulled over on HWY 95 and got footage of these lights. The difference in lighting you see in the photos is because I was using different settings to get a more visible photo of what they were."

A New DNA-Based Search for the Loch Ness Monster is being Launched

A university professor from New Zealand is planning to put our modern knowledge of genetics to work in solving a decades-old mystery: does the Loch Ness Monster, nicknamed 'Nessie', actually exist?

The University of Otago's Professor Neil Gemmell is proposing that new genomic forensic techniques be used to search for the elusive creature. While Nessie gained widespread popularity via the oft-debunked "surgeon's photograph" published in 1934, legends of a large creature living in the lake predate the famous picture. Numerous sightings have been reported over the past century, along with the publication of dozens of photographs that allegedly depict Nessie.

El anillo volante de Henry Villard

El éxito de los Hermanos Wright de 1903 en en Kitty Hawk supuso un cambio radical en la historia de las máquinas volantes. Desde entonces, muchos de los pioneros anteriores a ellos pasaron al olvido. Es natural, se recuerda a quien consigue un logro, no a los cientos de apasionados que lo intentaron… y fallaron. Un caso singular de entusiasta de las aeronaves fue el de Félix Henry Villard (1869-1916).

Uno de los “anillos volantes” de Henry Villard. Imagen de 1902.

Ingeniero francés, se obsesionó desde muy temprano con lograr volar en aparatos más pesados que el aire movidos por motor, esto es: quiso construir un avión, aunque su idea se acercaba más a la de los helicópteros y, por ello, hay quien lo considera un precursor de estos aparatos. Su concepto, al que llamó Ornis, se materializó en varios prototipos desde el año 1901. No logró volar de forma controlada, pero nunca dejó de intentarlo. La revista El Mundo Científico, editada en Barcelona, describía de esta manera uno de sus primeros aparatos en su número del 3 de mayo de 1902:

Los aviadores, o las aeronaves más pesadas que el aire, empiezan a estar de moda, disputándose el dominio de la atmósfera con los globos y dirigibles.Entre unos y otros se encuentran prodigios del ingenio de los inventores, cada vez más cercanos a la definitiva conquista de su ideal, como se encuentran también aberraciones más grandes de la inteligencia extraviada, cuyo resultado llega a ser algunas veces una catástrofe económica cuando no el más lastimoso fin del inventor y del invento.

Entre los aparatos teóricamente viables, si bien sus pruebas no han dado hasta ahora resultado positivo, figura el avión de Henry Villard, en el cual se ponen a prueba varios principios: el del aeroplano, el del paracaídas, el del giroscopio y el de la cometa.

Constituye la parte principal del aparato un anillo rígio horizontal de siete metros y medio de diámetro, reforzado con numerosos vientos de alambre tendidos en su plano, los cuales sostienen además un círculo de tafetán de globos. Este disco de tela, en caso de avería del motor, es suficiente para servir de paracaídas. No es perfectamente plano, y al girar con gran velocidad, hace el efecto de una hélice, contrarrestando la gravedad y evitando el descenso, o produciendo elevación. Este giro rápido tiene otra ventaja: el efecto giroscópico que produce, impide que el aparato se incline y se ponga el disco en vertical. El motor es de gasolina, sistema Buchet de dos cilindros, con 12 caballos de fuerza a 1920 revoluciones por minuto. Mueve, además del paracaídas, una hélice propulsora de forma especial. El timón es circular, de plano vertical y fijo al extremo de una larga horquilla.

Interestingly, the study found a difference in brain activity between novice and experienced mediums, and also produced results during their trance state that they just could not explain.

Cigar Shaped Object Seen North of Breckenridge, Texas- April 7, 2017

Click on an image for larger view.


Time: 13:22
Location: Breckenridge, TX looking North.
Shape: Cigar
Duration: Approx. 5 seconds

I saw an unidentified craft this afternoon. It went from shiny white to smokey black in an instant. I managed to get one picture before it completely disappeared.
It was not an airplane.

I was letting my dogs in and head a small prop plane.  While I was looking for the small plane, I saw a glint of light to my North.  The sound of the small plane disappeared (I assume it was landing at the county airport, south of (behind) me, because when I heard it, it sounded directly overhead.

I focused on the bright white object and saw that it was a cigar shape with no wings.  It also made no sound and it was moving faster than a commercial jet at that altitude.

I ran and grabbed my camera but by the time I had it focused, the bright object was gone and only a shadowy form appeared.   That is what is in the photos above.  I enlarged and cropped the image to see it better.

Físicos de todo el mundo tratan de descubrirla, y si la encuentran, además de llevarse el Premio Nobel, podrían explicar por qué en nuestro universo ha triunfado la materia frente a la antimateria. Ahora científicos del experimento GERDA acaban de actualizarlo para afinar la búsqueda de esta desintegración con una sensibilidad sin precedentes.

El núcleo del niquel 78 es doblemente mágico

En física se conocen como 'números mágicos' ciertos números de nucleones (protones o neutrones), como 2, 8, 20, 28, 50, 82 y 126, que dotan de mayor estabilidad un núcleo atómico. Basándose en cálculos microscópicos de alta complejidad, un trabajo en el que participa la Universidad Autónoma de Madrid (UAM) ha determinado que el isótopo más pesado del niquel, el Ni78, tiene un núcleo doblemente mágico, al tener 50 neutrones y 28 protones,

Researchers to Search for the Presumed-Extinct Tasmanian Tiger

This April, the hunt is on for researchers looking to confirm the continued existence of the presumed-extinct thylacine, better known as the Tasmanian tiger, following recent reports of sightings of the creature. The last known specimen died in captivity in 1936, at the Hobart Zoo in Tasmania. Countless sightings have been reported since, but to date none have been verified.

Nuevo avance de stellarator frente a tokamak en la carrera por la fusión nuclear

Para obtener energía limpia e inagotable mediante la fusión nuclear se están desarrollando dos tipos de reactores experimentales: los tokamat, como el ITER que se construye en Francia, y los stellarator, como el TJ-II que tiene en Madrid el CIEMAT y el mayor de todos: el Wendelstein 7-X que se ha fabricado en Alemania. Ahora se ha confirmado la correcta topología de los campos magnéticos que confinarán al plasma en este stellarator.

Stories from a Lilfe 9: Love, Compassion, Freedom

Whitley talks about working with the visitors, and how different his experiences are from the stories of various alien races, federations, and so forth. And yet, unlike the people telling us these stories, he has been directly involved with the visitors for most of his life.

This is a joyous, deeply inspiring and freeing talk about becoming a companion of God.

Little Girl Encounters Curbside Robot, Assures It, 'You Are Loved'

Despite the uncertainty surrounding the coming revolution in artificial intelligence, there are those of us that prefer not to see the rise of the robots as the advance of an army of tyrannical exterminators or job-stealing drones, but rather a chance to make new friends from what most would consider to be an unlikely source.
