IFO’s …..What are they?

Posted by dandare on October 5, 2012

What is an IFO; well it is a term that stands for Identified Flying Objects…. we refer to them, when we are able to identify an object in the sky.

I would like to quickly guide you through some of the many IFO’s in the sky, just to show that there is alot out there that is identified; this is important, as we must always keep this in mind, when looking at possible UFO’s…. for instance, live checks can be made on sateillites and where they are, if you know where to look ……

The Delta Project “Common IFO Phenomena” by Robert Moore;  gives a flavour of the IFO subject (Identified Flying Object).

There are many IFO’s out there:

1  Sateillites

For instance, the Naval Ocean Surveillance Sateillite.

” NOSS is a group of satellites that travel as a group of three in orbit around the Earth and sighting of this trio has given rise to many UFO reports in the UK” (extract from post).Also see here for more links to sateillites, with programmes to track them, ect.

For real time sateillite tracking see Heaven’s Above (recommended). Also for Hubble, Mir and others see here , here and here (real time tracking also).

Paul Maley’s site   (which is way out of date) shows just how much re-entered junk, falls back down to earth.

2  Space Junk

Alot of re-entry space junk, can be another possible IFO.

It has been the cause of quite a few ufo sightings; they are similar to bright fireball meteors, but have been known to be much more dramatic.

Only recently, space junk was the cause of sightings- in the UK.

sky news

BBC News

“On average, one non-functional spacecraft, launch vehicle orbital stage, or other piece of cataloged debris has fallen back to Earth every day for more than 40 years. The majority of these objects do not survive the intense reentry environment. For the minority which do survive in whole or in part, most fall harmlessly into the oceans or onto sparsely populated regions such as Siberia, the Australian Outback, or the Canadian Tundra. Occasionally, components of spacecraft and launch vehicles are found” (extract from NASA Debris Re-entry recovered ). However, this phenomena is becoming more common as the years pass.

Sources for this on the internet are Orbital Debris Quarterly news here , paul maley’s site “satellite ” website, with pictures of large re-entry debris here (still quite rare, especially at these sizes; thats a relief).

3    UFO Balloons

UFO balloons (or fire balloons) are a small balloon, heated by a flame below….. they are based on sky lanterns (invented by Chu Ko Liang), from China, which where traditionally made from a combination of bamboo frames and rice paper…. and used a rag dipped in paraffin, which was then lit, to get them airborne.

UFO balloons (i think commercialy started in 2005?) use a clear plastic bag (others use other material such as dry cleaner bags), and fitted below with a firelighter, held in place by wire; others have used balsa wood and drinking straws to make them, and a candle in place of the firelighter.

A ufo balloon being lit and put into the air can be seen here on you tube…..

These balloons need to be put into the mix, when researching and collaborating UFO sightings, to confirm that it is not these that have sparked off the reported sightings…. they do have some characteristics that can help in this though…. they have a whiteish-yellow glow, although in some weather conditions, these can be orangey red, and do not move quickly (unless in a strong wind-although this could create a fire risk) and always with the wind too, obviously.

They must be used in the right weather conditions, otherwise there is a real possibility that they can catch fire to the surrounding countryside, property, etc.

The ideal conditions to use them are on cool, clear non breezy evenings… they last for around 8 to 10 minutes (but sometimes slightly longer) and can rise as far as about 1000 metres; it can also move with airstream’s as it rises. Although i have heard of some that can last for far longer (up to 40 minutes they claim) using a candle framework to keep it alight for longer…. i’m sure there are other variations too.

Another thing is that they do not come out well on camera or video, but can be quite visual when seen real time.

So UFO followers must take this into account when considering reports of ufo’s, although there are many IFO’s out there (i will when time allows put a permanent page up, with as many references to IFO’s as i can).

This just gives you a flavour of what there is out in the skies……. hope this helps you when you see something in the sky…always ask- is it possibly an IFO.

Time travel and time slips by Kenneth j. McCormick

Time Travel And Time Slips

By Kenneth J. McCormick

Time, the word evokes a unit of measure that allows us to realize how long it is from one point in our life to another. Put more simply it is the interval between two events. It also denotes how long we are on this earth or alive. Time also pertains to how long it takes the Earth to circle it’s Sun. Our calendar has time as it’s basis. In the early days time was thought of as more two dimensional. It was just something that passed. No matter what you did, you just couldn’t alter that fact. Even today we don’t have the ability to change time or do we? We can change it ever so slightly now by traveling in a rocket. Einstein stated that the faster you go the more time slows down. We have observed this phenomena in practice when atomic clocks were put into orbit and slowed down slightly due to their speed orbiting the Earth. But are there other facets of time that we don’t yet understand, is time some sort of dimension that can be entered and exited? We really don’t have these answers yet, but if this is true then we might have time travelers from the future among us right now without realizing it. If we do, could they be changing the future by making changes in our present that we are not even aware of?

There have been certain claims made by people that have to do with time. The year was 1935 and Air Marshal Sir Victor Goddard of the British Royal Air Force was flying his biplane. He flew over an old abandoned air field that was covered with growth from the plant life of the area. Clearly the field wasn’t even being maintained anymore. Strange yellowish storm clouds lay ahead and the Air Marshall could not avoid them. He grit his teeth as he flew into one and the air around him decided to swat his plane. Down he went narrowly avoiding a crash. When he began to pull up he noticed that he was almost over that old abandoned airstrip, but there was a problem, it wasn’t abandoned anymore. There were not only biplanes on the field but also monoplanes and they were painted yellow and the crews wore blue coveralls. Another thing that he noticed that was very strange was the fact that he was completely unnoticed even though he was flying low. The storm caught up with him and when he got out of it the field looked abandoned again. It wasn’t until 1939 that the field was reactivated and crews began to wear blue coveralls and planes were painted yellow. What happened here, did the Air Marshall enter the future and return, it sure looks that way. We know that not only will clocks slow down as speed increases but there is another important effect. As gravity decreases clocks tick faster. So we can assume that it isn’t only speed that effects time, it is also gravity. Could the Air Marshall’s plane have achieved some sort of dive that put him into a state where he was able to have broken free of the present time?

People talk about seeing ghosts and spirits. Many times they seem to be unaware of anyone else in the area. Most of the current thinking is that this means that someplace is haunted, but what if this isn’t true? What if the place is not haunted but some sort of a time portal is projecting the past? Does this sound foolish to you? Does it sound anymore foolish than a haunting? One must always keep an open mind. What might seem foolish today might be routine tomorrow. Another bizarre story tells of a man that returned to this time from 2036 in a Corvette that had a military time travel device attached to it. He even put the photos of it on the internet and they can be seen at http://www.idlewords.com/weblog.09.2003.html this link must be copied and put into the browser’s address bar to go to the site because I don’t have permission for a link. He claimed that he met his younger self who lived in the home. He has said to have moved on only leaving his younger self somewhere in Florida.

At least one person, Dr. Bruce Goldberg, claims that he has met many time travelers. He states that they are all around us and they use dimensional travel. Because of this they are not what we would think of as solid in this dimension and can move through objects that are impassable to mere mortals of this time, such as walls, trees and such. He goes on further to state that they are invisible and this is some sort of byproduct of this type of time travel which will be discovered in the year 3050. He has written the book “Time Travelers From Our Future”

Some people believe that contrary to the thought that a time traveler must be very careful not to alter anything, he can’t alter anything because he can’t pick up or touch anything. They believe that everything can be seen. It is sort of like watching a move. You can watch it and even enjoy it, but you can’t change the story. They go on to say that no one will even be able to see you or talk to you. I have no way of knowing if this is true or not and there are many conflicting theories on this subject, but I sort of favor this one. The reason I like it, is that it sort of indicates that we might be only watching an image of the past and I have believed for a long time that this is much more likely than getting into the actual past which is gone. Some will argue that this is not really time travel, but maybe it is the best we can do.

Some claim that when they had near death experiences, they traveled in time. One man stated that when he thought he was going to die he saw twelve different dramatic world events. All of these events came true in his future. He stated that he actually lived these events before they happened. He had traveled into the future and was then returned back to his own time. It has been said that time is like a river flowing forward but full of eddies and currents. Will one of us ever get swept in the wrong direction by one of these currents, who can say?

Lastly the famous Philadelphia Experiment was said to be an experiment in electronic camouflage that went bad and produced time travel. For those of you that don’t know what I am talking about, the story goes that a U.S. Navy destroyer was fitted with a special generator in 1943. The purpose was to make the ship invisible. The ship was transported when the generator was turned on and some say it also went through time. There are no records that can be found to verify any of these statements.

Meteorite hits Peru (IFO)

Posted by dandare on September 18, 2007

On Peru’s border with Bolivia, a meteorite created a large crater……  In “villagers fall ill after fireball hits Peru” – posted september 18th,2007 – source: msnbc.msn.com). In the msnbc article, there is available a video from the crater site.

Other sites of interest on this topic: 

Although it does not show the present crater in Peru, Google earth hacks (seen here), shows us images of craters from around the world. 

Also an article on what to do if you find a meteorite can be seen here . 

Update: september 19th, 2007

Ok i might have overstepped the mark here……  on quick analysis of the sands around the impact of the crater, it is suggested it could be a meteorite…..experts are now being sent to investigate and start thorough tests to comfirm exactly what it is. Please see Reuters “Peruvians get sick from apparant Meteorite crater” (posted september 19th).For reuters video on this  see here (confusingly in the video they refer to it as a meteorite).

However, The Guardian (www.guardian.co.uk  -posted september 18th 2007) seems to believe it to be a meteorite, in “Peru meteorite crash causes mystery illness“.

So maybe not an IFO after-all.

UPDATE 21st September, 2007

Apparently, yahoo news (written by AP writer -20th sept, 2007) mentions that “Meteorite likely caused crater in peru“.  Such impacts are rare, and astronomists still want to do other tests to confirm the strike“.

Other reports are more excentric, such as the claim than american spy sateillite was downed in peru (see link here)… It does not warrant a serious comment however (its very politically bias led, to meet its own end- anti west and USA).

To start proceedings (ufo sightings have been thin on the ground this week), we have a video clip from WGAL.com (posted 14th september,2007), which mention that “Group calls on government for ufo truth“.

In “UFOS or just party lanterns” (from the UK <-posted 12th september,2007 by icSurreyOnline.com), it says that:

“ASTRONOMERS can give no explanation for dozens of mysterious lights seen flying above Epsom and Stoneleigh”…. however later in the article;

 “With only scant reports of the Epsom sightings to go on, Judy Jaafar, secretary of the British Unidentified Flying Objects Research Association, was unsure”.

On an amusing note, i came across abbreviations of UFO (see here, half way down the page), with Ultra Freak Out given in the  Governmental->Military category. The entry above in the Science Dictionary on the abbreviation of UFO says:

“UFO (yooh-ef-oh)…….The abbreviation for unidentified flying object. Sometimes referred to colloquially as “flying saucers.” Most UFO sightings have prosaic explanations; there is no hard evidence that extraterrestrial beings are visiting Earth“.

 At globeandmail.com, the “UFO believers, skeptics clash at scientific conference” (posted 15th september, 2007 <-Canadian Press); many theories were put forward from both sides:

“… Jaymie Matthews, an associate professor of astronomy at the University if British Columbia, argued that while he and other scientists have spent years searching the universe for Earth-like planets that would support intelligent life, none have been discovered yet.”

 “Mr. Friedman also poured cold water on the argument that an alien landing like Roswell would be too big to cover up. He said thousands of people worked on the Manhattan project to build the first atomic bomb, but it stayed a secret until one was dropped on Japan”.

On the 13th September, it was announced thatGoogle backs private moon landing” (source BBC NEWS). Google is to entice private firms to send robots too the moon, with the first to land being awarded $20 million. It mentions that:  “In a statement announcing the competition, Google and the X-Prize Foundation said it had been created in a bid to stimulate research into low-cost robotic exploration of space. The top prize of $20m will be given to the private firm that soft lands a rover on the Moon which then completes a series of objectives.”

For some video clips of this see below:

Related to this are links  to the lunar Lander challenge both here and  here (october 26-28th october,2007).

The video “Fastwalkers” might be of interest, and can be viewed here (although the quality is not great). To buy the official copy, please go here .  

Also an article worth looking at is “Invaders from Elsewhere” which goes into flying saucers, weirdness and pop culture.

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?

On the BBC website, an article “apollo moon photos reveal detail” (posted 28th August,2007) mentions  that:

Highly detailed photographs of the moon taken by the Apollo missions are being made available to the public for the first time in more than 30 years“.

There are a few scans on the website at the moment (15 in total), but they will be adding more all the time….. the archived site can be seen here . There are several options for downloading the files, including the raw scan; there is also photo support documents too, which is a nice touch, and a resources section.

Also of possible interest, is google sky, which is written about here  , with links to the website in the article.

The sefton and west lancs (uk) has an interesting article entitled “Throwing light on a mystery” (posted 16th August). It mentions that the recent sightings around Liverpool could be Ball lighting, however it goes on to mention…..

“If the lights being seen across this region are ball lightning, the weather may be to blame, as we have had alternating days of rainy and sunny weather recently, but the reports of the Liverpool Lights seem to defy such a rational explanation”.

The Santiago Times  (posted 16th August 2007) reveals that “UFO ENTHUSIASTS GATHER IN CHILE’S REGION VII” 

 “The convention begins Friday, Aug. 17 and is organized by San Clemente’s City Hall and Tourism Chamber. It also enjoys backing from the Chilean government’s National Tourism Service (SERNATUR)”. (extract from article….Santiago Times).

 It also goes on to mention, that of all the ufo sightings in the country, only about 5% are picked up by the press.

The Canadian (blog) has an article “SPP North American summit of leaders shrouded in UFO-style secrecy” (posted 16th August 2007). Not sure about this story, but worth a read, as it seems strange?

In UFOS North West (ufosnw.com) “Two witness Large Flying Triangle with red lights on corners” (posted 13th August, 2007). It happened in San Rafael, in California on the 11th August, was a brief sighting, and the report also has audio and 2 drawings of the triangular ufo incident.

In the Scotsman.com News it is claimed that “Experts do the ‘impossible’ by breaking speed of light” (posted 16th August, 2007). On a similar theme, another article can be seen here .

“…. two German physicists now claim to have forced light to overcome its own speed limit using a phenomenon known as quantum tunnelling”. Of course, they used photons and not humans to do it! A link to Quantum tunneling can be seen here .

Lastly, from the Yorkshire Evening Post “Mobiles capture ufos flying in the sky”  (posted 15th August 2007). There is also a video link to this (watch out for the excited shouting); i’ll leave you to decide what this is??

According to the Northampton Chronicle  (posted 9th August, 2007):

A small band of real-life “ghostbusters” are at work in British universities, including Northampton, trying to understand paranormal activity from UFOs to telepathy”. 

And ….”Dr Richard Broughton, from Northampton University’s Centre for the Study of Anomalous Psychological Processes, is convinced there is a need to look into the matter”.
