Top 10 Exopolitics Stories

2014 was a big year for the field of exopolitics – the nascent science of understanding the political implications of UFOs and extraterrestrial life. There were many exopolitics developments that figured prominently in news articles and videos from around the world. These developments point to two complementary processes that are likely to continue in 2015 and lead to very different outcomes. The first is a decades-long top secret policy of covering up evidence of extraterrestrial life that appears to be slowly unraveling due to an ongoing disclosure movement. Second, there is an official effort to prepare the general public for the impending discovery of extraterrestrial life. These processes can lead to either a “post-disclosure world” where the alien UFO cover-up has been exposed; or a “post-discovery world” where humanity learns that we are not alone. Here are my top ten exopolitics stories (listed in reverse order) based on a combination of popularity, persuasiveness and significance to either a “post-disclosure” or “post-discovery” world in the near future.

ESA Singing Comet# 10.  On Nov. 11, the European Space Agency (ESA) confirmed that it was receiving a mysterious signal from Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko. The ESA described the signal as a “mystery song” and uploaded a recording with the caption: “Hear our comet sing.” The confirmation follows months of rumors that the Rosetta mission was originally sent to explore a radio signal from the comet first detected 20 years ago.

#9. On Feb. 24, a leaked NSA document was released that explicitly reveals a clear connection between online covert operations by the “Five Eyes” intelligence community (US, UK, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand) on the UFO issue. Titled, “The Art of Deception: Training for a New Generation of Online Covert Operations,” the document is smoking gun evidence that the intelligence community is training its covert operatives to deceive the public on a range of sensitive national security issues including UFOs.

Dyson Lens and Sun#8. Over a four day period up to Nov. 9, NASA’s Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO) detected a strange area near the sun where solar activity was apparently being absorbed by an invisible object. The immense spherical lens shaped field was claimed to be part of an advanced technology based on the principle of a “Dyson Sphere.” NASA’s SOHO images appear to be evidence of the sun’s energy being absorbed by a gigantic lens shaped solar collector whose approximate size was larger than the sun itself!

NASA Source Image of thigh bone#7. On Aug. 14, the Mars Curiosity Rover photographed an object that appears to be a thigh bone on the Martian surface. When the photo was released by NASA’s JPL affiliate a few days later, initial observers claimed that the object was a fossilized bone fragment. The first thigh fossil claims generated much media attention and public controversy with coverage by major media outlets such as the Huffington Post and Britain’s Daily Mirror. In an unusually quick response, NASA replied to the growing controversy on August 21 by claiming that the object was a rock. Not so according to a growing number of independent researchers that have uncovered past Curiosity Rover images of what appear to be different life forms on the Mars surface.

1 Title-page-iPart-1-mage#6. On April 8, an alleged USMC whistleblower came forward to claim that he spent 17 years on Mars serving at a secret military base whose main mission was to protect five civilian space colonies. In exclusive testimony released on ExoNews TV, Randy Cramer, who used the pseudonym, Captain Kaye, said that the Mars Defense Force recruits personnel from different military services. He claims that he was recruited from a covert branch of the U.S. Marine Corps called “Special Section,” and also served in a secret space fleet for nearly three years.

Star Visitor Sanctuary Opening Ceremony#5. On June 27, the Hawaii Star Visitor Sanctuary was officially launched in a dedication ceremony on the Big Island of Hawaii aimed at welcoming extraterrestrial visitors to Earth. The extraterrestrial sanctuary was first promulgated in a declaration by official representatives of the reinstated Kingdom of Hawaii. The “Declaration for Creating Hawaii Star Visitor Sanctuary” makes it possible for extraterrestrials to land on sovereign land claimed by the reinstated Kingdom of Hawaii.

Vatican-mothership-Pope Francis#4. On Oct. 27, Pope Francis I endorsed the view that extraterrestrial life – which he referred to as “beings of the universe” – has evolved in ways that is consistent with the plans of “God the creator.” The Pope’s statement was a surprising endorsement of the view that the activities of intelligent extraterrestrial life in the universe can be part of a universal plan. Consequently, Pope Francis’s statement is preparing the Catholic world for the discovery of extraterrestrial life visiting our world in UFOs may be part of “the plan of the creator.”

#3. On Aug. 19, ITAR-TASS reported that Russian scientists have found microbial life on the surface of the International Space Station (ISS). The Russians first detected the microbes over a year ago and confirmed that the organisms can live in zero gravity, extremely low temperatures and with cosmic radiation. Despite the harsh conditions, the scientists reported that the bacteria were thriving on the surface of ISS and could live there for years. The Russian discovery is startling since it confirms that extraterrestrial microbes can flourish in deep space. Read more.

2 NASA and ET Life#2. From Sept. 18-19, 2014, NASA and the Library of Congress hosted a symposium on how society can prepare for the discovery of extraterrestrial life. Leading astrobiologists from around the world convened at the Library of Congress in Washington DC., to discuss the latest scientific theories and developments in the search for extraterrestrial life. Presenters discussed the implications from recent scientific breakthroughs in discovering the existence of exoplanets, new theories of the conditions under which extraterrestrial life can flourish, and how to communicate with them. The symposium took the position that the discovery of extraterrestrial life is imminent and the public needs to be prepared.

1 UFO docked at ISS#1. On Jan 29 the live camera feed of the International Space Station (ISS) showed what appeared to be a strange yellow elliptical object docked with the hull of the ISS. The video shows the sleek looking yellow UFO docked at the ISS for just over two minutes with the Earth slowly rotating in the background. The video ends with ISS live feed going into blue screen mode. This suggested that NASA cut the ISS live feed once it was realized that the video of the UFO docked at the ISS was going live to the world. The docking positioning of the UFO suggests that it is not the result of a camera anomaly but a genuine spacecraft of unknown origin. This led to much speculation that the UFO was docked so that extraterrestrials could meet with NASA astronauts as has allegedly occurred in the past.

Yesterday was a good day for those proposing that extraterrestrial life currently exists on Mars. In a Dec. 16 paper published in the journal Science, NASA says that significant methane levels were detected by the Curiosity Rover over a two month period suggesting that “Mars is episodically producing methane from an … unknown source.” The “unknown source”, as a number of mainstream media articles were quick to point out given what is known about the creation of methane, may be extraterrestrial life, The New York Times published an article titled, “’A Great Moment’: Rover finds Clue that Mars May Harbor Life,” The Guardian wrote “Methane ‘spikes’ fuel speculation of life on Mars.”  ScientificAmerican used as its subtitle: “New results suggest evidence for extraterrestrial life could be near at hand.”  This is not the first time that NASA has released scientific data pointing to life on Mars. On previous occasions, NASA scientists argued over the results. Judging from the number of authors to the Dec. 16 paper, there appears to be rare unanimity. Are we on the verge of a major NASA announcement that reveals life has been found on Mars?

The New York Times pointed out that NASA’s announcement is a major reversal on the position it reached only a year earlier :

“the new findings … are a 180-degree flip from a year ago, when mission scientists said that Curiosity had found no signs of methane,”

The Curiosity Rover also found carbon-based organic molecules the significance of which the New York Times explained from comments given at a News Conference by NASA scientists at the American Geophysical Union:

The scientists also reported that for the first time, they had confirmed the presence of carbon-based organic molecules in a rock sample. The so-called organics are not direct signs of life, past or present, but they lend weight to the possibility that Mars had the ingredients required for life, and may even still have them.

NASA’s announcement is good news for scientists that have claimed that previous scientific data from Mars suggested that life exists there in the form of microbes. The most famous was the “Labeled Release” experiment from the 1976 Viking mission that obtained positive results for evidence of Martian life. The experiment’s designer, Dr Gilbert Levin, thought the results clearly indicated Martian life, but he was not supported by the NASA administration. In a 2012 reassessment of Gilbert’s experiment, he was finally supported by an independent team of scientists who concluded:

The only extraterrestrial life detection experiments ever conducted were the three which were components of the 1976 Viking Mission to Mars. Of these, only the Labeled Release experiment obtained a clearly positive response…. We have applied complexity analysis to the Viking LR data….We conclude that the complexity pattern seen in active experiments strongly suggests biology while the different pattern in the control responses is more likely to be non-biological….These analyses support the interpretation that the Viking LR experiment did detect extant microbial life on Mars.

More controversial are the claims by Richard Hoover, a former NASA senior scientist who claims that in 2004, the Mars Rover, Opportunity photographed what clearly looked like the fossilized remains of a crinoid, a marine animal that looks like a sea lily. Hoover showed it to colleagues who immediately recognized the object as a crinoid. However, rather than examine the exciting possibility that Opportunity had photographed the fossilized remains of a living organism, Hoover said that less than four hours after taking the photo, Opportunity’s rock abrasion tool ground the area where the possible fossil lay into dust. He asked David McKay, the former chief astrobiologist at the Johnson Space Center, why this had been done. The response Hoover received was less than satisfactory.

Gilbert’s and Hoover’s experiences suggest that there are those at a senior level in the NASA administration that have in the past deliberately prevented evidence of extraterrestrial life on Mars being accepted, and even destroyed. This makes NASA’s reversal of its previous conclusions of methane levels on Mars significant, as is the emphasis that the New York Times gives to NASA’s recent backtracking. Has NASA changed its policy on releasing evidence of life of Mars?

Possible support for a recent policy shift can be construed from no less than NASA administrator Charles Bolden who made a surprising statement about life on Mars in an Oct. 9 interview in London:

People always ask the question ‘Why Mars?’ Several reasons: One, Mars is very Earth-like, or least used to be Earth-like. It is a planet, a sister planet to Earth. It is the most likely planet in our solar system, um, that had life at one time… may have life now, and we feel can definitely sustain life.

Was this merely a coincidence, or was Bolden preparing the world public for some surprising future announcement regarding life on Mars? NASA may be simply driven by new scientific data gained by the Curiosity Rover as the Dec. 16 Science article suggests. Alternatively, it may be that there has been a recent policy shift in the higher echelons of NASA, and it is poised to release data finally confirming that life, at least in the form of primitive microbes, does currently exist on Mars.

Images from the Mars Curiosity Rover have been digitally altered by NASA’s JPL affiliate to cover up objects discovered on Mars. The latest digital alteration was revealed in a November 15 video released on Youtube that showed how an object caught by the Rover had been obscured by removing data to hide something from view. The alteration follows another incident revealed on November 9 of NASA JPL tampering with Rover Curiosity images where an object appears to have been digitally blurred. What is it that NASA doesn’t want the public to see on Mars?

The digital alteration involved an object that has a portion of it removed and replaced by surrounding sand. Close image analysis of the altered object in the November 16 video shows how a straight line portion was changed. This created an unnatural looking effect where no shadows appear where they should for the affected object. Whoever had digitally altered the image had done a sloppy job in hiding evidence of their tampering according to the video description:

It has become more and more blatant and in your face what NASA and JPL have been doing to the “Raw Images” being beamed back from the Curiosity Rover on Mars. This is a prime example of how they have been using the blur tool and fake sand to remove artifacts and objects that someone does not want you to see. Whoever worked on this one over at JPL needs to be fired they did a horrible job with the blending of the fake sand.

The digital alteration follows an even more visually striking case of evidence tampering by NASA, this time blurring what appears to be an artificial object. In the second digital alteration (see below), it is clearly seen how an object with straight edges and smooth curves has been blurred using some kind of blurring software. The blurring is easy to see relative to the rest of the environment, and striking evidence of NASA’s JPL altering raw visual data to hide what is being discovered on Mars.

NASA is no stranger to accusations that it has deliberately altered or even destroyed images to hide evidence of artificially created objects found by its spacecraft. Donna Hare worked for NASA contractor Philco Ford, had a “Secret” security clearance, and was shown a picture of a UFO flying over the moon’s surface captured during an Apollo mission by one of her colleagues. She recalled the following conversation:

I said, is this a UFO? And he’s smiling at me and he says, I can’t tell you that. I can’t tell you that. What I knew he meant was, it was [a UFO] but he couldn’t tell me. So I said, what are you going to do with this information? And he said, well, we always have to airbrush them out before we sell them to the public. And I was just amazed that they had a protocol in place for getting rid of UFO pictures on these things…

Hare decided to go public in November 2000 with her whistleblower testimony released through the Disclosure Project.

Other whistleblowers have also come forward to claim that NASA and affiliated government agencies have a policy of destroying or altering photos that reveal artificial structures on the moon or in space. Karl Wolfe, for example, claims that he witnessed NASA, the NSA and the US Air Force cooperating to remove such structures from Apollo and satellite imagery when detected. At a highly classified military facility Wolf says he was shown NASA images by a colleague revealing a base on the far side of the moon:

… he pulled out one of these mosaics and showed this base on the moon, which had geometric shapes – there were towers, there were spherical buildings, there were very tall towers and things that looked somewhat like radar dishes but they were large structures…. I was a little irritated that the government had been lying about all this for years and covering it up.

Yet another whistleblower is Dr Ken Johnston who was a manager of NASA’s Data and Photo Control Department. Johnston claims that he also witnessed moon photos showing artificial structures and was asked to destroy the photos. He refused and was fired by NASA.

The two recent November 2014 cases of digital alteration of Mars Curiosity Rover images are is striking examples of a policy by NASA to hide evidence that some of the objects photographed by its spacecraft and probes are artificial in origin, and have been found on the Mars surface. Together with whistleblower claims that NASA has a decades-long policy of photo tampering with objects that appear artificial, it is not too hard to reach a firm conclusion of what NASA and its JPL affiliate is doing with Curiosity Rover images. NASA is not in the business of discovering extraterrestrial life, but is instead hiding such a discovery from the general public.

ESA Singing Comet

The European Space Agency (ESA) today confirmed that it was receiving a mysterious signal from Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko. In a post on its live streaming website, it described the signal as a “mystery song” and uploaded a recording with the caption: “Hear our comet sing.” The confirmation follows months of rumors that the Rosetta mission was originally sent to explore a radio signal from the comet first detected 20 years ago. The November 12 landing of the Rosetta mission’s Philae probe will be live streamed to the world. The ESA’s surprise announcement hints that the significance of the landing may go well beyond the historic first of humanity landing a probe on a comet.

Here is what the ESA said in its December 11 post:

Rosetta’s Plasma Consortium (RPC) has uncovered a mysterious ‘song’ that Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko is singing into space. The comet seems to be emitting a ‘song’ in the form of oscillations in the magnetic field in the comet’s environment. It is being sung at 40-50 millihertz, far below human hearing. To make the music audible to the human ear, the frequencies have been increased in this recording…

There was a media frenzy back on September 29 from a UFO Sightings Daily post titled: “NASA Records Radio Signals Coming From Comet 67P For Over 20 Years!”  The author, Scott Waring, cited an anonymous ESA whistleblower who wrote in an email that the mystery signal was detected 20 years ago by NASA and this was the true reason behind the Rosetta mission.

Waring and others making similar claims were criticized by many in the mainstream media who debunked the idea of a mysterious radio signal coming from comet 67P. Huffington Post writer, Michael Rundle, for example, wrote:

If the comet is emitting radio waves, why has no one else been able to tune it?… If the radio waves were picked up by NASA, why did they leave the space mission to investigate to the European Space Agency?

Well guess what? The ESA today confirmed that Waring was right and Rundle was wrong. The mystery signal is in fact “a song” being transmitted by the comet, presumably an oscillation in its magnetic field according to the ESA. The ESA did not say when it first recorded the song, but it does lend plausibility to the claims of the anonymous ESA whistlelower. The big question now is whether the song is a random composition of nature as the ESA implies, or was created by an extraterrestrial intelligence.

A September 10 photo from the Rosetta mission showed what appeared to be a radio tower and a possible UFO on the surface of Comet 67P. The photo was one among others held by the ESA that the anonymous ESA whistleblower referred to as revealing some of the mystery behind Comet 67P. Could the alleged tower be the source of the mystery signal, and does the UFO suggest an extraterrestrial intelligence is involved?

If the mystery signal today confirmed by the ESA was detected 20 years ago and led to the Rosetta mission, then it stands to reason that NASA and ESA believed that the signal was more than a random composition by nature. If extraterrestrials are wanting to announce themselves to a disbelieving world, transmitting a beautiful song from a remote comet does appear to be an elegant form of First Contact.

Dyson Lens and Sun

Over a four day period up to November 9, NASA’s Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO) detected a strange area near the sun where solar activity was apparently being deflected or absorbed by an invisible object. According to two independent solar researchers in videos uploaded to Youtube on November 9 (see here and here), the affected area was due to a giant shield created by a UFO to protect itself from the sun’s energy. An alternative explanation is that the immense spherical lens shaped field was part of an advanced technology based on the principle of a “Dyson Sphere.” NASA’s SOHO images appear to be evidence of the sun’s energy being absorbed by a gigantic lens shaped solar collector whose approximate size is a mind staggering five times the sun’s diameter!

The solar images used to identify the alleged “UFO shield”or solar collector can be publicly downloaded from SOHO’s Large Angle and Spectrometric Coronagraph (LASCO). Video data from the LASCO C2 (orange) and C3 (blue) reveals that from November 6-9, an area to the lower right of the sun appears to not have any solar activity while areas around the rest of the sun do so. Either the sun’s energy is being deflected back from the region by a “UFO shield” or absorbed by a giant lens of tremendous size – dwarfing the sun in comparison. The sheer size of the affected area, suggests that the hemispheric object was designed to absorb solar energy towards, rather than deflecting it away from, a UFO at the center of the hemisphere. A close inspection of the LASCO C2 (orange) film footage, in particular, suggests the sun’s activity is actually being absorbed, rather than deflected, by a giant hemispheric lens of some kind.

The idea of an invisible giant hemispheric shaped solar collector is consistent with the development of a new generation of solar panel collectors that are spherical in design and use glass. One of these is called the “Rawlemon Spherical Solar Energy Generator” which is described as follows:

… the Rawlemon design uses a spherical lens to concentrate sunlight on a small photovoltaic panel and combines this with a dual-axis pivot that tracks the movement of the sun. According to the designer the transparent sphere is able collect and concentrate diffuse where traditional devices cannot and as well as providing an efficiency boost, they can be used in far more locations than their flat, fixed counterparts. It’s also claimed that by concentrating the sun’s light in one area, the Rawlemon design reduces the solar cell surface required to just 1 percent of that required by a traditional panel.

Could something similar to the “Rawlemon Generator” be designed on a much larger scale for collecting solar energy by an advanced extraterrestrial civilization?

According to Freeman Dyson, a celebrated astrophysicist, a Type II extraterrestrial civilization would have the advanced technology to harness solar activity on a grand scale. A Dyson sphere, for example, could be constructed around a sun to collect solar energy in ways similar to how humanity harnesses hydro power, through water channels and dams. While a Dyson Sphere is theorized to be big enough to encircle a sun, similar principles could be used for a giant “Rawlemon Generator” type solar collector where a spherical glass lens could be pointed towards a sun. This can be best described as a “Dyson Lens.”

In an earlier live NASA streaming incident from August 2014 involving the STEREO A satellite, a UFO with an apparent spherical lens trailing behind it, is moving past the orbit of Venus. The UFO appears to be using the lens, which is approximately four times the diameter of Venus, to absorb the sun’s energy over a six day period from August 3 – 9.  The August incident provides stunning video evidence of what appears to be a “Dyson Lens” being used by a UFO belonging to a Type II extraterrestrial civilization. It supports the evidence that the object captured by SOHO over the August 6-9 period is in fact a highly advanced solar collector as much as five times the sun’s diameter.

Over the last decade, live streaming from NASA and other national space agencies has provided remarkable evidence that we are not alone in the universe. UFOs have been regularly photographed and filmed in close proximity to the International Space Station, Moon, Mars and other celestial bodies, Rarely, however, has live streaming video captured evidence that answers the question, how advanced is the technology used by UFOs? Do we now have compelling data to answer this question? Is the answer much more than we ever bargained for, and preparing us to think in much bigger terms with our future inevitably leading to contact?

NASA covering up UFO

On Saturday morning, October 25, the Space X Dragon detached from the International Space Station (ISS) as it began its return mission to Earth carrying various cargo items. In NASA’s video footage of the Dragon departure, uploaded the same day to Youtube, a small luminous UFO is apparently monitoring the detachment and start of Dragon spacecraft’s return which conducts three burning maneuvers near the ISS. Video analysis of NASA’s coverage of the incident was conducted by Third Phase of Moon that clearly identified the UFO. Furthermore, Third Phase of Moon makes the remarkable claim that NASA deliberately tried to hide the UFO as it monitored Space X Dragon’s departure.

In the raw footage of the incident provided by NASA, it is hard to identify the UFO which is a small light just above and to the right of the Dragon spacecraft. According to Third Phase of Moon, this is because NASA zoomed out from the Dragon craft as soon as the UFO appeared nearby. After NASA’s raw footage is subjected to video analysis through zooming and light contrasts, the UFO becomes clear. Was NASA’s zooming out at the moment the UFO first appeared merely coincidental; or, as Third Phase of Moon claims, a deliberate attempt to cover up the UFO?

The Space X Dragon incident follows only three days after another small luminous UFO appeared near the ISS, this time during a spacewalk by two Russian astronauts. The UFO was very clear and appeared to maneuver near an object jettisoned by the astronauts. A day before, on October 21, two cigar shaped UFOs appeared near the ISS. In another incident on October 7, an elliptical UFO appears nearby another spacewalk by two astronauts.

The October 25 incident suggests that once again, a UFO has been filmed apparently monitoring ISS activities. If NASA was trying to cover up the latest UFO incident, this may be part of a deliberate policy of countering the frequent appearance of UFOs near the ISS that might lead the public to conclude that we are not alone.

space bug near ISS

On October 22 during a spacewalk by two Russian astronauts, the International Space Station (ISS) live feed showed a luminescent UFO briefly fly nearby. The astronauts had just jettisoned two parts of the ISS that had been removed, and the live feed showed the objects slowing falling towards the earth. As the second object is jettisoned, the UFO appears and briefly maneuvers near it. The luminescent UFO does not appear to be space debris as it clearly changes direction several times. It appears to be under intelligent control suggesting either a luminescent life form indigenous to outer space, or an extraterrestrial vehicle of some kind.

The first possibility of an extraterrestrial life form that can survive in outer space was suggested in a brief video analysis of the UFO conducted by Third Phase of Moon. It was proposed that the UFO was some kind of insect. The idea of space bugs existing in outer space received a boost on August 19, 2014 after Russians scientists announced the results of a yearlong study of a strange substance that had been obscuring the windows of the ISS that had been collected by astronauts during a prior spacewalk. Russian scientists announced that the substance was a form of sea plankton growing on the windows of the ISS. Flying at an approximate altitude of 200 miles, it is extremely unlikely that sea plankton could be carried so high by air currents. Nevertheless, the sea plankton on the ISS was growing, suggesting that it was a form of plankton indigenous to outer space rather than carried into space from the Earth’s surface.

Another possibility is that the luminescent object is an extraterrestrial spacecraft. If so, it would be yet another incident of spacewalking astronauts being monitored by extraterrestrial craft. October 7 was another incident of spacewalking astronauts being captured on the ISS live feed with a UFO nearby that appeared to be observing ISS activities. The UFO was elliptical in shape and stationary relative to the ISS.

The ISS live feed is clear evidence that something other than space debris was briefly captured on video during a spacewalking mission. The video is very suggestive of some form of indigenous space life, or an extraterrestrial vehicle, closely monitoring the ISS and the spacewalking astronauts.

2 UFOs near ISS

Newly released video from the International Space Station’s (ISS) Live Stream shows what appears to be two cigar shaped UFOs near the ISS. The UFOs briefly appear in the video stream before there is a signal interruption. When the live stream resumes the UFOs are gone. The incident was uploaded to Youtube on October 21 and has already begun generating much discussion. It is difficult to estimate the size of the UFOs but previous sightings of similar cigar shaped objects have been estimated to be aircraft carrier sized, big enough to host smaller UFO craft. Leading astronomers and astrobiologists are now telling us that the cosmos is teeming with exoplanets capable of hosting intelligent life, and we need to prepare for its discovery. This leads to the question, are extraterrestrial ships monitoring the ISS?

The latest video incident follows a string of UFOs being captured by the ISS live stream. On October 7, a UFO appeared near two space walking astronauts. The object was also elliptical or cigar shaped, and appeared to be monitoring the ISS. On January 29, 2014 the live stream showed a yellow elliptical UFO that appeared to actually have docked with the ISS. This raised remarkable possibility that the ISS was being visited by unknown astronauts from a classified military program, or even extraterrestrials.

The main objection against past UFO sightings captured on the ISS live camera feed is that these are lensflares caused by the sun or a strong light source nearby as it hits the camera lens. In the live video feed of the two cigar shaped UFOs, there is no significant change in the ambient light as the UFOs slowly appear in the video. If the UFOs were caused by a lensflare, then their appearance would be marked by a clear change in the ambient light. Nor do the UFO appear to be natural phenomena occurring in the Earth’s atmosphere or surface.

If the two UFOs are not caused by a lensflare, camera malfunction or other natural phenomena, what are they? The UFOs may be intelligently guided cigar shaped spacecraft that have been reported by military and government whistleblowers to be very large in size.

One possible explanation is that they belong to a secret space fleet. Another explanation is that the UFOs are extraterrestrial in origin. As far back as the early 1950s, cigar shaped UFO have been regularly sighted and photographed. The most famous photographs were taken by George Adamski who filmed smaller scout ships emerging from larger cigar shaped UFOs near the moon. In a related 1952 incident, Adamski and six witnesses claimed to have sighted a large cigar shaped UFO fly overhead. It was soon followed by a smaller “scoutcraft” that landed near Adamski, who met the extraterrestrial pilot.

The International Space Station’s live camera feed continues to capture strange nearby objects through its various external camera systems. Some of these objects might be explained away as lens flares or natural phenomena. Not so however for all other incidents that likely include the two cigar shaped UFOs captured  on October 21. If these two UFOs are under intelligent control, they could be spacecraft from a secret space program or from an extraterrestrial intelligence. If extraterrestrials are indeed monitoring the ISS, they may be allowing their spacecraft to be captured on video in a First Contact scenario.

Martian skull

Is this an elongated skull on Mars and is it connected to ancient Egypt? Source: UFOvni2012

A photograph taken by the Mars Curiosity Rover shows what appears to be an elongated skull on the Martian surface. According to an October 18, 2014, report by UFO Sightings Daily, the curious object is an elongated head similar to those found in ancient Egypt. In a Youtube video, the Martian skull like object is compared to elongated human skulls found in various Egyptian murals and the similarity is striking.

Around the same time the skull like object began to be discussed on the internet, NASA administrator Charles Bolden made a surprising statement about life on Mars in an October 9 interview in London:

People always ask the question ‘Why Mars?’ Several reasons: One, Mars is very Earth-like, or least used to be Earth-like. It is a planet, a sister planet to Earth. It is the most likely planet in our solar system, um, that had life at one time… may have life now, and we feel can definitely sustain life.

Was this merely a coincidence, or was Bolden preparing the world public for some surprising future announcement regarding life on Mars? Perhaps Martian life once existed, and it was connected to ancient Egypt?

The photograph was taken by Curiosity Rover on September 14, 2014 and was the focus of a video posted a month later. In the video, comparisons with various elongated human skulls depicted in Egyptian murals and statues, the suggestion is that the object is a human skull. If so, then the elongated skull may be evidence of a tangible connection between ancient Egypt and Mars. Both Earth and Mars at one time in their history possessed a human population with elongated skulls that were part of their respective planetary leaders.

Whatever the origin of the mysterious object, it is unlikely that the Curiosity Rover will investigate it more closely due to the standard response by NASA that such fossil like bone fragments are just rocks. For example, in its response to a Mars Rover image of what appeared to be a thigh bone found on Mars, NASA responded that it was nothing more than rock. Former NASA employees, such as Richard Hoover, however disagree. Hoover claims that NASA administrators go to great lengths to cover up the possibility of Martian life, and in one case directed one of the Rover missions to actually destroy evidence of a Martian fossil.

Perhaps NASA’s standard response is right, and the skull looking object captured by Curiosity Rover is just a rock. Alternatively, the object may be the elongated skull of a humanoid species that had a historical connection to ancient Egypt. Was NASA Administrator Bolden’s October 9 claim of past Martian life purely coincidental in timing, or the start of NASA releasing more of what it really knows about life on Mars?

UFO near spacewalking astronauts

On October 7, the live camera feed from the International Space Station (ISS) captured video of a UFO near by astronauts during a spacewalk. In a Youtube video uploaded today by NASA of the spacewalk, an unknown craft is clearly visible as one of the spacewalking astronauts performs his mission. The UFO appears for 12 seconds beginning at the 1:40 minute mark (see embedded video extract). It has an elliptical metallic shape and is of unknown size. It appears to be close by and monitoring the astronauts.

One possible explanation is that the UFO could be one of two resupply ships currently visiting the ISS. On September 23, a Space X Dragon cargo ship arrived at the ISS. It was followed two days later by the Soyuz TMA-14M carrying three additional crew members. The two craft are respectively scheduled to return to Earth on October 18 and November 10. However, both craft are docked, and not floating near the ISS as the unknown object appears to doing in the October 7 video.

Another explanation is that it could be a lensflare or camera reflection of part of the ISS itself. However, lensflares and reflections typically happen as sunlight or a strong light source reflects off the sides of a camera lens and/or nearby objects. However, there does not appear to be any strong source of light near the astronauts or camera during the video segment when the UFO appears. The even light in the background of the video during the critical period appears to rule out a lensflare/camera reflection explanation.

The video footage follows incidents earlier in 2014 which showed what appeared to be UFOs visiting the ISS. The most revealing occurred on January 29 and involved live video feed of a yellow elliptically shaped UFO that appeared to actually have docked with the ISS. This raised remarkable possibility that the ISS was being visited by unknown astronauts or even extraterrestrials. To date, no satisfactory answer has been given by NASA for the unknown spacecraft captured on video docking with the ISS.

The October 7 incident cannot be video of either the Dragon X or Soyuz spacecraft which are docked. Nor does it appear to be caused by a lensflare/camera reflection. The elliptical shape of the object is consistent with earlier incidents at the ISS involving UFOs close by or even docking with the ISS. Is it possible that once again, a spacecraft of unknown origin has been captured on video visiting the ISS, this time monitoring a spacewalk by two astronauts?
