On this Day, 12 years ago …. The ‘Pheonix Lights’.

Posted by dandare on March 13, 2009

phoenix19971As reported by the KTAR.com ” Twelve years later, debate continues over ‘Pheonix lights’ ”  (posted 13th march, 2009). It mentions

The lights were reported March 13, 1997, during a three-hour period, between 7:30 p.m. and 10:30 p.m. in a space of about 300 miles, from the Nevada-Arizona line, through Phoenix, to the edge of Tucson. There were two distinct events — a triangular formation of lights seen to pass over Arizona and a series of stationary lights seen in the Phoenix area ” (extract from article).

Below i have added links and videos to this event: There were those that believe that the phenomena was of alien design, those who believed that they were military flares; others who believed they were a stealth blimp. Will we ever find out what they really were ?

For an interesting report on the Pheonix Lights please see  NUFORC.org

At approximately 6:55 p.m. (Pacific) on Thursday, March 13, 1997, a young man in Henderson, Nevada, reportedly witnessed a V-shaped object, with six large lights on its leading edge, approach his position from the northwest and pass overhead.  In his subsequent written report to the National UFO Reporting Center, he described it as appearing to be quite large, approximately the “size of a (Boeing) 747”, and said that it generated a sound which he equated to that of “rushing wind.”  It continued on a straight line toward the southeast and disappeared from his view over the horizon.

This sighting is perhaps the earliest of a complex series of events that would take place during the next 2-3 hours over the states of Nevada, Arizona, and possibly New Mexico, and which would quickly become known as the “Phoenix Lights” sightings.  It involved sightings by tens, or perhaps even hundreds, of thousands of witnesses on the ground, and it gave rise to a storm of controversy over what had caused the event ” (extract from article).

phoenixlights1997modelAlso a very informative article entitled:

ADDENDUM TO THE REPORT ON PHOENIX LIGHT ARRAYS

by Bruce Maccabee, originally posted Sept. 30, 1998; updated to March, 2002 can be seen here ….in which he believes they were flares?

Skeptics stur up Ufology….Again! but what does it achieve?

Posted by dandare on December 21, 2008

ufosa-hot-topicIt recently came too my attention through the Daily Grail and UFO Chronicles, that Skeptics have been attacking Ufology, especially Stan Freidman and Chris Rutkowski.

For the relevant articles please see below:

Skepticblog.org ( posted november 26th,2008 ) ” Abducted by logic ” Phil Plait.

DailyGrail.com (posted november 27th, 2008 ) ” Astronomers and UFOs

Skepticblog.org (posted december 4th, 2008 ) ” Stanton Freidman doesn’t like me ” by Brian Dunning.

Uforum.blogspot.com ( posted december 10th, 2008 ) ” UFO debunker strikes again ” by Chris Rutkowski.

Skepticblog.org ( posted december 10th, 2008 ) ” UFonies ” by Phil Plait.

DailyGrail.com (posted december 12th, 2008) ” Skeptologists attack Ufologists

DailyGrail.com ( posted december 15th, 2008 ) ” Friedman on the Skeptologists

Skepticblog.org (posted december 18th, 2008 ) ” The top UFO debunker? Really? ” by Brian Dunning.

The whole affair seems regretable, and absolutely pointless, and i’m afraid instigated by the Skeptologists.

 ufo-sightings-5555I must point out from the start, that everyone should have an open mind, and question everything, and  enquire. Also they should not blindly say that every UFO sighting is extraterrestrial, or that they are all fakes….. (yes the majority can be explained, but there are those that cannot, so why not attempt to solve them? ).

The skeptologists decide to put the boot (or rather the DM) in, and attack UFOlogy: especially targeting Stanton Friedman and Chris Rutkowski. 

The DailyGrail.com article (posted december 12th, 2008) ” Skeptologists attack Ufologists ” covers all that was said well, so i will not repeat it again.

600px-dead_end_sign_svgWhat i object too, is the way they go about doing this: it really is quite sad to see them in operation…. what exactly are they trying to prove? and what is their aim? to piss everyone off probably; of course, it all degenerates into insults, and what the hell does this achieve. I do not blaim Stan and Chris on going on the defensive.

However, i just wish for once, they  (skepticblog or should that be skepticfog) could actually have some substantial research of their own to draw on…but i guess that would ask too much.

All this, is a good argument for saying, why the hell can we not pull all resources together, and try to build up case studies, even if we cannot nessecarily agree on the outcome. To just keep slagging each other off constantly, is not very productive, is it. Anyone can do it.

jerseyeveningpost26thapril07For instance, the recent Stephenville UFO sightings and the Channel Island sightings (an excellent report was done for the Channel Islands sighting, for instance- it was a very detailed report, and involved a colaboration of quite a few people).

Do not get me wrong either, i have nothing against skeptics, because to some extent, in Ufology, we all have to be skeptics also……. 

PhotobucketThe only way that the Skepicblog has succeeded, is by drawing attention to itself, in which case it has worked, however, i must also point out, that most will see, that they have not actually grown up?

Interstellar: A Film About Amateur Astronomy And The Search For Extra-terrestrials, by Bill Knell

Posted by dandare on November 6, 2007

written By: Bill Knell

If there is one thankless hobby or job in this world, it’s Amateur Astronomy. Amateur Astronomers are under-funded, underrated and always taken for granted. Yet these little giants of space science are always willing to stretch the bounds of our scientific knowledge without the need to work within the restraints of some established scientific theory or database. Despite the unappreciated nature of this endeavor and often finding themselves at odds with the scientific establishment, Amateur Astronomers are responsible for some of the most significant milestones achieved in Astronomy.

Keiichiro Okamura, a Japanese amateur astronomer, was responsible for some of the best photos ever taken of Halley’s Comet using just his telescope without the aid of computer-enhanced photography. Berto Monard of South Africa was recently honored by NASA after he became the first amateur astronomer to discover an afterglow of a gamma-ray burst, the most powerful explosion known in the Universe. Both were largely ignored or even belittled in the early years of their work.

Michael Oates is a British amateur astronomer that pioneered the technique of using advanced photo-processing techniques to search NASA’s SOHO archives for previously missed comets. Australian amateur astronomer Robert Owen Evans holds the all-time record for visual discoveries of supernovae. America’s own Clyde W. Tombaugh, began his career as an Amateur Astronomer and later discovered Pluto after being hired by Lowell Observatory in 1928.

It took years for Oates to get noticed. Evans is a Minister of the Uniting Church in Australia that has forty visual discoveries of supernovae to his credit, but was initially criticized when he began his work in the 1950s. A young and under-appreciated Clyde W. Tombaugh found his niche at Lowell Observatory. It was founded by Percival Lowell, a businessman, author, mathematician and amateur astronomer that found himself up against the scientific community after sketching what he claimed where canals on Mars. Scientists and Astronomers still argue about what may be artificial structures on the Martian surface.

Enter John Lenard Walson. He is an amateur astronomer who developed a system for photographing and video taping near earth and deep space objects. These objects appear to be huge spaceships or mega-structures built by unknown intelligences. I became aware of Walson through a fabulous new film entitled Interstellar. The film is yet another wonderful creation from eclectic filmmaker Jose Escamilla. UFO researchers and enthusiasts appreciate his work on several films which have documented the evidence for Alien visitations. Jose has once again brought forth a though-provoking, visual work of art that informs as well as it entertains.

Walson represents a new generation of twenty-first century amateur astronomers that have moved beyond merely searching for planets. Unlike most of their professional colleagues, they do not choose to ignore signs of other life in the universe. Instead, they look for and document evidence for those signs. Carl Sagan once summed up the twentieth century attitude of most Astronomers by saying, “I’m looking for stars, moons and planets. I’m not looking for E.T. That’s not tangible science.”

John Lenard Walson’s contraption is unique and his methods as yet unproven, however, he has a substantial body of amazing images. He also has some fans in the scientific community. Astronomers and others from Academia have visited this photographic wunderkind and left impressed with his techniques. Sadly, his work may be the best-kept secret in Amateur Astronomy. I certainly haven’t seen anything about him in the main stream media. However, I believe that will change as the new film from Jose Escamilla takes hold on TBLN.

Interstellar showcases his work and helps make the vast distances of space seem a bit less expansive and empty. The film runs for thirty minutes and is a must-see for anyone interested in space science and the search for extra-terrestrials. It’s fresh air to people like me that have had to endure years of constant skepticism by the majority of Astronomers. Most cannot or will not give credence to any evidence that proves the existence of life outside of our own. Those that tip their hat to the idea of other forms of life in the universe turn right around and claim that it’s just not capable of visiting us.

If astronomers, scientists and the news media are skeptical of John Lenard Walson, he’s in good company. Like the pioneers of astronomy that came before him, Walson is destined to change the minds of many. I hope his work and the film that has done such a masterful job of documenting it will do more than that. It’s my desire to see the direction of astronomy move away from ignoring evidence for extra-terrestrial life forms and back into the business of investigating it.

It wasn’t that long ago that scientists and astronomers believed that the universe was more than just a gathering of lifeless heavenly bodies. Some felt it was “teeming with life.” It’s always been my feeling that a few key scientists and astronomers owing their grants and careers directly or indirectly to government funds or intervention sold out. Being already skeptical by nature, they sold out their profession and lead others along by their influence to a place far removed from the assumption of life other than human in the far reaches of space.

The work of John Lenard Walson and ground-breaking filmmakers like Jose Escamilla provides hope for a more objective tomorrow among scientists, astronomers and the media. Having watched the film, I am not a fan because I research UFOs. I am a fan because no one has given me reason to doubt the amazing images I see recorded from the modest telescope lens of J. L. Walson. Watch and make up your own mind. You can read more about the film and view a trailer at http://Interstellar.UFOguy.com

With the latest intriguing event, that of the peru fireball, National Geographic have written an article entitled “Meteor crash in Peru caused Mysterious illness” (posted 21st September,2007). They say that local Peruvian scientists, have analysed it, and it is of a rare meteor type.

“Numerous arsenic deposits have been found in the subsoils of southern Peru, explained Modesto Montoya, a nuclear physicist who collaborated with the team. The naturally formed deposits contaminate local drinking water.” (quote from article above).

This they think, could have created the conditions (with the impact of the meteor) in the illnesses that later resulted.

In the American Chronicle, Frank Warren has written an article on “Officials in Peru State That The Fallen UFO is a Chondrite Meteor“. It goes into quite alot of detail and covers all areas, even with links and updates to the article, to include other sources; it also proves that alot of conflicted reporting and speculation has taken place, and quite evidently, some of it is not true.

Unfortunately i missed the anniversary of  the Majestic 12 on september 24th ; here is an article by wired entitled “Sept. 24, 1947: MJ-12 — We Are Not Alone … Or Are We?”.

It mentions “1947: If the secret committee known as the Majestic 12 ever really existed, this is the day that the group was allegedly created by a memorandum from President Harry Truman” (extract from wired article).

 There in lies the problem, did it ever exist? I do not know if they are real or not? there is a link to tests made (article in PRweb here ), however, i find problems with Michael S. Heiser, who also has other hidden agenda’s…but i’ll leave it up to you to decide. 

From the article “A total of 17 documents were tested, allegedly written by nine different authors. Dr. Heiser typed the prose text of the disputed Majestic Documents and a set of undisputed control documents for each author for Dr. Chaski’s testing. Of the 17 documents tested, only one can be scientifically validated as having been written by the author who is named……[.].”  OymyNews.com also has an article on this “The Majestic Hall of Mirrors “.

It is claimed that “Parallel universes exist – study” (source breitbart.com, september 23rd, 2007). They mention that “Parallel universes really do exist, according to a mathematical discovery by Oxford scientists described by one expert as “one of the most important developments in the history of science” (extract from article).

An article “UFOs kept secret by U.S. in nationalist fervor?” caught my eye, (in The Register-Herald, posted september 8th,2007). Most of the article is about Stanton friedman, who was “A physicist who once worked for such giants as Westinghouse and General Electric, he has devoted much of his adult life to ferreting out clues in the UFO controversy.” (extract from article).

In English Pravda.ru there is “KGB’s secret UFO files finally made public” which is an old source, but one i was not aware of until now (posted december 12th,2005). It mentions the declassification of the Blue Folder…“Researchers believe the Blue Folder is an invaluable source of information” (extract from article).

In recent news, KodiakDailyMirror.com  (posted 26th september,2007) reports that “UFO mystifies local officials Aircraft accounted for, no craters found during search“. breitbart.com (posted 24th september,2007) says that “NASA aims to put man on Mars by 2037 ” ….i’m surprised not sooner….unless you believe that they have not landed on the moon? (although for the record, i do believe they have landed).

Finally, to my old favourite chinese lanterns/ufo balloons….. in newburytoday.co.uk (posted 26th september,2007), it mentions “Newburytoday.co.uk investigates possible explanation for string of UFO sightings above district“. It goes into some detail about the sightings in their area (involving orange lights,and so on), with a video, in which they use a ufo balloon, to demonstrate the effects that it has at night……

Has a Mythical (chupacabra) beast turned up in texas?

Posted by dandare on September 2, 2007

Has evidence of the chupacabra been found? in this article by Elizabeth White (Associated Press Writer -posted 31st August, 2007), it is mentioned that in

“CUERO, Texas – Phylis Canion lived in Africa for four years. She’s been a hunter all her life…[.]” and “Canion believes she may have the head of the mythical, bloodsucking chupacabra”…. (extracts from the article).

And yep, she keeps it in the freezer, as it will be going off for DNA testing.

There is also evidence of blood drained chickens victims….On the left hand side of this article is a photo of the creature, and a slideshow too.

I have absolutely no idea if this is what she has found, but it has left people wandering what the hell it is?
