A crop circle that appeared 11 miles southeast of Salinas, California on December 28, 2013 contains three coded messages according to renowned crop circle researcher, Dr Horace Drew. According to Dr Drew, a retired molecular biologist who worked at Caltech and Australia’s CSIRO, one of the coded messages was to be vigilant about an upcoming astronomical event. The next message referred to a date in the near future when an astronomical event is to occur by July 8, 2014. The third and most startling message was that comet ISON was a space transportation system.  Taken in their entirety, the three messages appear to be encouraging people to watch the skies for an upcoming astronomical event featuring remnants of ISON that will in fact be an extraterrestrial event of some kind. If genuine and correctly interpreted, the Salinas crop circle is a vindication for those claiming that Comet ISON was no comet at all, but one or more objects under intelligent extraterrestrial control with a specific mission for the inner solar system and Earth.

The December 28, Salinas crop circle attracted widespread attention due to its unusual timing and location. It appeared well after the crop circle season in southern England had concluded, and most crop circle researchers had quietly withdrawn to write summaries of the 2013 summer season. According to an email by crop researcher Paul Jacobs, who began investigating the Salinas crop circle:

No one in the area has made claim to it and the locals had no knowledge of it or its construction. I estimate it would have taken three men working in daylight conditions doing 9-hour shifts for nearly 9 days to complete this pattern. My gut feeling is we have an important event on our hands here.

More tellingly, a security firm was hired by an unknown agency to begin guarding the crop circle on the same day it was discovered. According to Linda Moulton Howe from Earthfiles.com:

On Saturday morning, December 28, 2013, Echelon Security in San Jose, California, was hired by an agency to guard the intricate pattern in the 2 to 3 foot high barley in the Chualar field east of Salinas. This fact was confirmed the afternoon of December 31, 2013, by staff writer Phillip Molnar at the Monterey County Herald.

Howe described an account by Jeff Krause, of how the security firm deployed four security trucks with personnel to keep people out of the crop circle:

I arrived at the site near 7:15 AM Pacific on December 31, 2013. When I got there, four security trucks were parked on the road outside the circle to keep people from going in. They were very adamant about not letting anybody on the field property.

It would be odd for a farmer to hire and pay for four security trucks and personnel to protect a barley field. The clear implication is that an unnamed U.S. agency saw the Salinas crop circle as having national security implications and funded Echelon Securities to keep the public away. So what was the message that the crop circle contained and may have sparked a national security response by an unknown U.S. agency?

The Salinas crop circle had a circular design with a number of complex geometric patterns that appeared to be coded messages. The main breakthrough came when a Braille language interpreter identified some of the crop patterns as being text book characters from the Braille language. The Braille message was quickly interpreted as a series of numbers and letter  – (192)-(192)-2-(192)-1-(192)-(192).

According to Dr Drew, when the British search engine 192.com is used, the code can be translated as: “The blind will see, and those who seek will find.” If interpreted correctly, the message here was that something will shortly happen that will be so unambiguous, that even die-hard skeptics will see what they previously denied. For others, the upcoming event will be vindication for what they have been seeking.

The second message was identified by Dr Drew as an outer code featuring three tall poles accompanied by numbers using Morse code. The message was 3-space-3-space-1. Dr Drew interpreted this as referring to an event timed to occur in the near future: “we should go around the “polar clock” by three full turns (days, weeks, months?) until some “event time” is reached.” According to a retired US Navy Flight Officer, Captain Mark Wood, the date referred to by the number 192 in the main coded message is July 8, 2014, which is 192 days from December 28. Significantly, the alignment of planets on July 8, matches the crop circle configuration of celestial bodies.

The third message was an inner code again using Morse code according to Dr Drew. This message was the most startling since it appeared to refer to comet ISON. He translated the code as: E-T B I-S-O-N S-T-S. Here is how Dr Drew interpreted the code:

 One interpretation of this cryptic message might be: “E T  B(e)” or “extra-terrestrials exist”.  Then “I-S-O-N (comet)” is an “S-T-S (space transportation system)” like for the NASA space shuttles (see  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/STS-1).

So could the Salinas crop circle refer to an upcoming extraterrestrial event connected to the remnants of Comet ISON, which was no comet at all?

Comet ISON received widespread scientific interest as a possible Comet of the century, but fizzled out shortly after its perihelion on November 28, 2013. After perihelion astronomers quickly concluded that the comet had disintegrated. Yet comet ISON made a remarkable recovery surprising many scientific observers. It was only temporary, however, and ISON soon disappeared again. Most astronomers concluded that it had perished after all. All that remained was small comet debris that temporarily lit up after perihelion giving the illusion that the comet had survived.

There were others, however, who claimed that ISON was in fact an artificially targeted object designed to interact with the inner solar system in a specific manner on certain dates. Others went further to claim that ISON was a small fleet of extraterrestrial vehicles on a specific mission designed to educate Earth’s inhabitants about extraterrestrial life. These startling analyses of ISON seemed to be quashed by ISON’s disappearance after perihelion. Now the Salinas crop circle suggests that these analyses of ISON may have been right all along. We will have to wait and see in the months ahead, and the possible July 8 date, whether an astronomical event occurs that settles once and for all the true nature of comet ISON and whether an extraterrestrial intelligence was behind it.

[Update: 1/7/14 – The tech company Nvidia announced on Sunday night that it made the Salinas crop circle as part of a marketing campaign to promote its latest chip. What does this bode for its message – human contrivance or a deeper agenda is being played out? The situation reminds me of Richard Hoagland’s dictum, “the lie is different at every level.”]

On U.S. Thanksgiving Day, Comet ISON survived perihelion – its closest approach to the sun. Initial observations from NASA scientists were that ISON did not survive perihelion as it disappeared into the sun’s shadow. Unexpectedly, fresh astronomical data on the evening of November 28, showed Comet ISON surviving, or at least some of it, as most of its mass may have been lost to the sun. According to Professor Tim O’Brien from the University of Manchester’s Jodrell Bank Observatory: “To all intents and purposes it looked like it had gone, and then amazingly this thing appears out the other side,” Like the proverbial Phoenix, ISON had arisen from the dead after its close solar encounter. According to NASA, Comet ISON continues “a history of surprising behavior” as it “appeared on the other side of the sun … despite not having been seen in observations during its closest approach to the sun.”

Comet ISON will now move back out of the solar system and fly by the Earth at a distance of 40 million miles on December 26, which would still be Christmas Day in parts of the world. ISON may yet put on a spectacular fireworks display living up to the early hopes of astronomers that it would be the “comet of the century.” However, that’s not all there is to ISON according to some observers. ISON is not a natural comet at all, but an object deliberately directed to move along its observed orbit; or, even more surprisingly, an artificially created object.

NASA has provided a series of gif files to show how Comet ISON approached the sun, and surprisingly emerged from its perihelion on Thanksgiving evening.

NASA has officially acknowledged that ISON is behaving in unexpected ways. So is it really just a comet?

According to Richard Hoagland, science advisor on the popular Coast to Coast AM radio show, ISON is following an orbital trajectory that has been artificially created. Hoagland, gave an update on ISON in the early morning hours of Thanksgiving Day which was summarized as follows:

Somebody using the technology of the “secret space program” has maneuvered Comet ISON into its precise orbit for “symbolic, ritual, and celebratory purposes,” as a kind of foreshadowing of amazing announcements or events here on Earth…

For Hoagland, it’s no accident that Comet ISON makes its closest approaches to the sun and earth respectively on U.S. Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day. ISON’s creators have chosen these dates to make possible a chain of global events that fulfill a secret agenda that Hoagland has described at length in his most recent book, Dark Mission: The Secret History of NASA.

Even more controversial are the claims of an individual called Tolec, who claims to be in communications with a group of extraterrestrials from the Andromeda constellation and other star systems. According to Tolec, Comet ISON is actually an extraterrestrial mothership. In a November 28 update on his blogsite, he wrote:

 The biosphere – Xanterexx [called by the news media: “comet Ison”] is in fact the “Blue Star Kachina”.  It signifies the coming of major changes to this planet, the harbinger of change & ‘open first contact ‘

If Tolec is correct, then we can expect more than big fireworks when Comet ISON makes its flyby of the Earth on December 26. A simulation of ISON’s trajectory is available here.

According to both Hoagland and Tolec, Comet ISON is a harbinger of planetary wide changes that we can expect to shortly witness. On the other hand, NASA astronomers claim that ISON is nothing more than a naturally formed comet that has shed most of its mass during its perihelion. With its surprising behavior and and Phoenix-like resurrection, ISON may yet turn out to be the “comet of the century”. One thing that most can agree upon is that ISON’s flyby of the Earth around Christmas Day will raise eyebrows as many peer skyward to observe and contemplate this surprising comet or artificially designed object, and its planetary significance.

Comet ISON and UFOs

The latest news reports reveal Comet C/2012 S1 (ISON) is brightening and may yet become the comet of the century. But is ISON a comet? A startling photo has been circulating of comet C/2012 S1 (ISON) that shows it comprises three objects rather than a solitary nucleus as claimed by NASA astronomers. The photo was taken by the Hubble space telescope on April 30, 2013, and it shows two of the objects are highly symmetrical cylinder shapes. In August, a number of bloggers began claiming that comet ISON was accompanied by two UFO motherships, and/or its core was in fact a large biosphere. Not so according to NASA scientists who officially responded in a post that the three objects are merely an overlay of three different time exposures of comet ISON.

Comet ISON was discovered in September 2012 by Russian amateur astronomers. It was first photographed by the Hubble Space Telescope on April 10. After disappearing behind the sun from June to August, it appeared again in late August. According to NASA, the Hubble image shows a conventional comet with a small nucleus and a large coma. NASA estimates the nucleus as between three to four miles across, while its coma is about 3100 miles wide and its tail is 57,000 miles long.

Comet ISON began passing Mars on October 1. It was photographed by NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter on September 29. Comet ISON will make its closest approach to the sun on November 28, which is Thanksgiving Day in the USA. On its way back from the sun, Comet ISON makes its closest approach to Earth on December 26, where it will be 40 million miles away. Clearly too far away for doomsday collision theories. NASA has plotted the trajectory of Comet ISON showing how it passes relatively close to Mars, makes a close flyby of the sun, and then orbits back at some distance from Earth. Many astronomers hope it displays spectacular fireworks as it passes close to the sun in late November. Some going as far as claiming it will the “comet of the century.” Normally, comets heat up and some expand spectacularly as the icy core heats up and gasses ignite. Comet ISON has begun brightening as it approaches the inner solar system. Alan Pickup from the Guardian newspaper today wrote: “The comet was near the 10th magnitude a week ago and may brighten to the 8th or even the 7th magnitude by the end of October. As such, it may soon become visible through binoculars as it dives closer to the Sun.”

Amateur astronomers have analyzed the Hubble telescope images and found that one of them shows the core of Comet ISON comprises three objects – two of which are highly symmetrical cylinder shaped. The three objects clearly reveal themselves when the lighting in the photo is turned down. You can test this yourself here  or watch the embedded video below. According to the amateur astronomers, NASA could not have failed to have noticed this. It is claimed that NASA is hiding the true composition of Comet ISON with images it has released that show only a solitary nucleus. Did NASA simply overlook that the comet’s core comprises three objects or is it hiding something?

Hubble astronomers claim, however, the April 30 photo of ISON doesn’t show three objects at all. In an official reply to blogger claims, Hubble astronomers claimed that the photo, “is the result of combining three exposures that produce the three components, and the shapes are produced by the combined motion of the Hubble telescope and the comet.”

 What makes the issue even more mysterious is an alleged video of comet ISON that appears to show the nucleus being circled by two UFOs. The video is claimed to be from a Chinese satellite, however, the Chinese Space Agency does not contain the video on its website. Furthermore, the resolution is too clear for such a distant object suggesting the video has been forged. Why would someone go to the trouble to create a fake video of comet ISON comprising two cylindrical UFOs circling a nucleus? Was it to generate confusion over the true composition of comet ISON or to call attention to it being accompanied by UFOs?

Regarding the latter possibility, there are many competing claims. One blogger, Tolec, claims that Comet Ison is, in fact, a large biosphere accompanied by two smaller ships:

It is not a comet. This is a large scale ship operated by Galactic Federation forces. Expect it to arrive in the ‘sol’ (solar) system, in Earth’s ‘space’ & in orbit over this planet… sometime in the near future. Consider this sighting to be another major harbinger of the many changes coming to this planet!

One thing is clear so far, a Hubble image of comet ISON taken in April does appear to show that it comprises three objects making up its nucleus – two of which are highly symmetrical cylinder shaped. Could it be that the image is simply an overlay of three different time exposures as Hubble astronomers suggest? In this scenario favored by NASA, the most we can hope for is that ISON spectacularly expands to become the “comet of the century.” Alternatively, does Comet ISON comprise two UFOs accompanying its nucleus as depicted in the alleged Chinese satellite imagery, or is it a large biosphere accompanied by two escort ships? We will have to wait for the truth to emerge as Comet ISON makes its closest approach to the sun in November 2013.
