The popular website Third Phase of the Moon yesterday supplied more video footage from one of its viewers who claims to be an extraterrestrial contactee. “Ed”, who is yet to reveal his full name, claims that his contacts started in 1976. He said that while he was a young boy he witnessed a UFO with his uncle who was a former lieutenant in the US Army. Ed claims that soon after, he began having contact experiences with aliens in their spacecraft that continue to the present day. What makes Ed’s stories of contact different to others is that he has remarkably clear footage supporting his claims.
Yesterday’s video footage was recorded in 1987 and shows a UFO taking off during the night. It is emitting a powerful light towards the ground, and is the classic saucer shape. According to Ed, the light was used to both teleport him into the ship, and back to Earth. It was silent as it took off suggesting that the light was not related to any kind of propellant as would be expected from a rocket engine or vertical takeoff aircraft. Ed claims that he travelled back to his truck and then filmed in the direction where the spacecraft was situated, and filmed it as it took off. The approximate size of the spacecraft was approximately 80-120 feet wide, and about 50-80 feet high. He said that the extraterrestrial that communicated with him and that he met on the ship was named “Voss”.
Ed has supplied other video footage from his archive that is compelling evidence for his extraordinary claims. One video released on March 26 in particular is a classic flying saucer captured during daylight hours. His videos are fast becoming the most compelling from a US based contactee since the extraordinary George Adamski who thrilled audiences around the world with his stories and photos of alien contact in the 1950s and 1960s. Ed appears sincere in his claims and is currently providing a series of interviews to Blake Cousins founder of Third Phase of the Moon. The latest video supports Ed’s main contention that he has been contacted and visited by extraterrestrial visitors since 1976.

Yesterday the entire footage of what appears to be a UFO docked at the International Space State (ISS) was released and uploaded to Youtube. 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 likely indicates 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.
The incident happened on January 29, 2014 and was transmitted by NASA’s live camera feed of the ISS which is made freely available on the internet to the general public on Ustream. The live camera feed was recorded and part of it was initially uploaded to Youtube by the user Streetcap1 on January 29. After requests by users to see the full camera feed, Streetcap1 uploaded all that was recorded yesterday, February 5.
The full video shows that the UFO was stationary and appeared to be docked with the ISS. The UFO is seen clearly in relation to the ISS thereby allowing for an accurate estimate of its size. One estimate was 10 meters in length. While the earth slowly rotates, the UFO remains stationary suggesting it is not a lensflare, glare, reflected image or other kind of camera anomaly.
A schematic of the ISS (see above) shows the UFO was docked between the Soyuz escape module and the Russian research and service module. If a UFO was to dock with the ISS, this would be one of the five active docking locations where it could so in order for personnel to be transferred on to the ISS.
The location of the docking is very suggestive. Was this a veiled warning by the UFO’s occupants involving the lives of the ISS astronauts? Was there some kind of communication between the ISS and the UFO’s occupants? If the UFO had occupants, did they actually enter the ISS? Finally, why the blue screen at the end of the live video feed, was this done by NASA to cover up what was happening at the ISS which was possibly an unannounced visit? NASA has a lot of questions to answer.

Report on Ricardo González Workshop at Mt Shasta – August 3-4, 2013
On the weekend of August 3-4, 2013 extraterrestrials delivered an important transformative message for humanity through a workshop led by Peruvian contactee Ricardo González at Mt Shasta, California. Extraterrestrials have come in peace and friendship, and are willing to participate in positive exchanges with humanity. They are willing to support citizen based forms of galactic diplomacy that will help humanity join the galactic community.
There were approximately 50-55 people attending the workshop being held at Sand Flat, Mt Shasta. All participants were camping. The language of instruction was Spanish, and English translations were provided on an ad hoc basis. Participants were encouraged to film/photograph whatever they witnessed.
Ricardo began by discussing his background. He described his experiences as both involving physical sightings and contacts. He claims his first contact exaperience was in 1996 at Paititi, Peru with an “intraterrestrial” from an ancient underground civilization. In 1997 he had another contact. This involved meeting a tall Nordic extraterrestrial called Antarel at the Chilca Desert, Peru. Ricardo was taken up into a space ship with Antarel in 2001. He most recent contact was on August 26, 2012 at Mt Shasta. Prior to the contact, a large group of approximately 55 had a physical sighting of a vehicle that did not appear to be an aircraft or satellite.
The 2012 physical contact occurred after the larger group completed the workshop on the morning of August 26. Ricardo got a psychographic (automatic writing) request to go back to the campsite and in total a group of 13 once again had a sighting of what appeared to be an extraterrestrial vehicle. This was another “programed sighting” for a specific time (9:00 pm) that Ricardo had advised a few individuals previously so they could be prepared. Ricardo received another psychographic request to go deeper into the forest by himself. The vehicle projected a ray of light or plasma ball that transported him into a space vehicle for approx 1.5 hrs. When he returned, it seemed that only 15 minutes had elapsed. An English translation of Ricardo’s 2012 Contact Report is available here.
After the introductory session for the 2013 workshop, Ricardo took questions. When I asked how the universal law of attraction applied to contact in terms of positively and negatively inclined humans/ETs, Ricardo said that there were three important considerations that applied here in determining the nature of the contact experiences he is involved with.
- Intention had to match. Positive intentions attract positively inclined ETs.
- Vibration/Frequency had to match. Generally, this involved human participants raising their consciousness at a level that is compatible with the extraterrestrials.
- There had to be an invitation.
These appear to me to be solid principles upon which a respectful form of extraterrestrial contact can occur. It requires a lengthy preparation process during which any individual fears would be overcome.
Ricardo did a number of exercizes that helped the group feel comfortable with the possibility of an extraterrestrial sighting or contact. Visualizations were used to achieve this, as well as a silent walk in nature. The environment and energy of Mount Shasta did provide a unique opportunity to prepare for the unusual. Between exercizes Ricardo and other members of the group took photos of UFOs that appeared. Here is one taken by Ricardo during the workshop.
Ricardo claims that when a UFO pulses a bright light in response to an intention/request, that is a characteristic of an extraterrestrial vehicle. That is different to satellites that pulse during rotation when the sun is reflected at a different angle, and are generally dimmer. Aircraft are far easier to identify and are always accompanied by the noise from their jet engines.
Prior to the Saturday evening Sky Watch, Ricardo explained that the group would experience what he calls a “programmed sighting,” rather than a spontaneous sighting. A “programmed sighting” involves advance notice of when the extraterrestrial vehicle would appear. In the case of the 2013 Mt Shasta workshop Ricardo had publicly announced a programmed sighting on Chilean TV one month in advance where he also announced that I would be attending. Below is a video showing Ricardo’s televised announcement. According to the psychographic communications he received, the sighting would occur between 9-10 pm.
During the sky watch on August 3, Ricardo explained the importance of distinguishing between satellites, aircraft and extraterrestrial vehicles. The latter were brighter and would pulse in response to the groups intentions. The extraterrestrial vehicles came in different sizes according to Ricardo. There are large motherships that ranged in size from several hundred meters to nearly 20 kilometers. There are scoutcraft that were approximately 30 meters in size. There are also probes that were generally two meters in diameter, or could even be smaller, that were unmanned.
At 9 pm, the workshop participants were instructed to begin chanting OM, and to continue the chanting throughout the hour. This was done in order to match the vibration/frequency with potential extraterrestrial visitors.
With the advance preparation and training, workshop participants immediately began identifying the various objects that were sighted. Aircraft were easily identified, as well as satellites that were very distant and dim. One of the objects at around the 9:10 mark appeared to fulfill the characteristics of an extraterrestrial vehicle. It appeared closer to the earth than a satellite, it pulsed a bright light, and its flight trajectory did not appear to be uniform. Unlike aircraft, there was no jet engine noise. It qualified, according to Ricardo’s criteria, as a possible extraterrestrial vehicle, though it was not unambiguous. As the 10 pm mark approached, none of the other 30 or so objects seen appeared to be an extraterrestrial vehicle.
At approximately 9:55 Ricardo asked the audience to be receptive to any messages from extraterrestrials. Soon after an object moving in a north easterly direction pulsed a bright red light. It was already near the horizon when it pulsed so it was a fairly short sighting. Ricardo interpreted it as a sign that the group would receive a message. Ricardo received a message and was beginning to announce it when an object moving from a southerly direction began to glow brightly and gave a very intense pulse.
It was filmed by several participants (two of these are shown in the video below). It was the most unambiguous demonstration of an extraterrestrial vehicle. Ricardo completed reading the message, and as if on cue another object appeared and glowed brightly before delivering another intense pulse of light. It was a second unambiguous demonstration of an extraterrestrial vehicle. Most importantly, it appeared to be confirming the accuracy of the earlier messages received by Ricardo.
Here is the message:
Yes it is us. You were able to verify our presence in this programmed sighting. We have done it this way to offer our support so that you do not lose the strength to keep going on. The contact with us is real. But more important is our profound relationship with you. We have a message for Michael Salla. We desire that the real reason for our presence reaches more people. This is why it is important that he understands our positive contact intentions and our interest in promoting exchanges with your human society. We will be supporting Michael in this task.
The contact has been established. Very important changes are approaching.
Be attentive. Antarel
On the morning of the final day, there was a further exercize from Ricardo using visualizations. There was discussion of the Saturday night evening sighting and the importance the extraterrestrials attach to preparing the population for contact. Farewells and group photos completed the workshop.
The sky watching on the Saturday evening was a remarkable event insofar as there were at least two unambiguous sightings of an extraterrestrial vehicle, with a possible two further more. The latter two of which occurred after Ricardo’s final message – were captured on video camera. While the night shots are not very clear, it is evidence of two tangible objects in the sky witnessed by 50+ individuals.
It appeared that the sightings also were timed to fulfill the pre-workshop “programed sighting” announcement by Ricardo made on Chilean TV. It is quite an extraordinary phenomenon that a UFO sighting can be announced a month or more in advance, and occur as predicted for the specified time frame. The “programmed sighting” was successful. Ricardo stressed a relatively rare occurrence for events he is involved with. This event was different insofar as an international extraterrestrial researcher (myself) would be attending.
One important conclusion that can be drawn from the successful “programmed sighting” from the August 2013 workshop is that it supports Ricardo’s claim of physical contact occurring at the previous August 2012 Mt Shasta workshop. Ricardo’s report of the 2012 physical contact experience contains valuable information about the intentions and activities of the extraterrestrials he works with.
The personal element of the message received by Ricardo during the 2013 programmed sighting came as a surprise to me. The message reveals the importance extraterrestrials attach to the world learning the truth about their visiting our world in peace and friendship. They desire to promote “positive contact” whereby human participants are helped and uplifted by their experiences with extraterrestrial life. Their willingness to conduct exchanges with human society is a sign of the many ways in which they can help humanity to evolve.
The manner in which the workshop was conducted, and the three requirements outlined by Ricardo for contact (1. Intention, 2. Frequency, and 3. Invitation) do give confidence that they do have positive intentions for humanity. The emphasis the extraterrestrials (whom Ricardo works with) place on the right preparation of workshop participants and respect they show for human free will, does give us confidence to accept their claims.
The feelings evoked by the sightings and the group camradarie made for an unforgettable event. The personal message from the extraterrestrials does reveal that they value peace and friendship with humanity. Importantly, they are willing to work with private citizens in various exchanges that confirm the significance of citizen based forms of galactic diplomacy. These possible citizen based efforts are discussed in my recently published book, Galactic Diplomacy: Getting to Yes with ET. The final conclusion is that extraterrestrials involved with the Mt Shasta sighting from 2013 have a transformative message for humanity that inspires hope for a future where humanity is ready to join the galactic community.

It has just been confirmed that five former members of the US Congress will hear evidence of a sixty year cover-up of evidence of UFOs and extraterrestrial life. In an April 8 Press Release, it was announced that from April 29 to May 3, 2013, former Senator Mike Gravel (1961-1981); former Congressman Merrill Cook (Rep, 1997-2001); former Congresswoman Darlene Hooley (1997-2009); former Congresswoman Carolyn Kilpatrick (1997-2011); and former Congresswoman Lynn Woolsey (1993-2013) will sit and hear evidence from forty witnesses. Modeled on a U.S. Senate hearing room formula, the five members will hear the evidence presented by “researchers, activists and military/agency/political witnesses” in what will be called a “Citizen Hearing on Disclosure.” The former Congressional members will hear evidence that the Roswell Crash did happen, that the US military issued shoot-to-kill orders against UFOs, that the FAA was ordered to cover up UFO sightings, that the reality of extraterrestrial life has officially been covered up since at least 1947, and that nuclear weapons facilities have been deactivated by UFOs.
The “Citizen Hearing on Disclosure” is the brainchild of Stephen Bassett from the Paradigm Research Group who succeeded in raising over a million dollars in funding for the event which will be streamed live to world and held in the National Press Club. Bassett says that:
The Citizen Hearing on Disclosure will attempt to accomplish what the U. S. Congress has failed to do for forty-five years – reveal the facts surrounding the most important issue of this or any other time.
The last time the US Congress heard evidence about UFOs was in 1968 at a symposium held before the Committee On Science And Astronautics, which comprised 30 members of the U.S. House Of Representatives. The Congressional Committee heard evidence from six scientists, and accepted written statements from a further six scientists including Stanton Friedman, M.Sc. who will be a presenter at the 2013 Citizen Hearing on Disclosure.
On the Citizen Hearing website, the format is explained:
All will conduct themselves in the same manner appropriate to a Congressional hearing. To the extent possible the protocols for congressional hearings will be followed. Committee members will receive written statements from witnesses, hear oral statements and ask whatever questions they wish about the subject matter at hand.
Witnesses include former astronaut Edgar Mitchell, former Canadian Minister for Defense, Paul Hellyer, and witnesses/researchers from Brazil, Uruguay, Peru and China.
I spoke today to Stephen Bassett, Executive Director of the Citizen Hearing, about what he expects to emerge from the Citizen Hearing. He said that no report is expected from the former members of Congress who will simply hear witness testimony, receive reports, ask questions and maintain a suitable congressional model for the Citizen Hearing. The main intention is to have the evidence presented for follow up. In this regard, he explained five main goals:
- Send a message to the U.S. Congress that it is not doing its job, by having the Citizen Hearing gather evidence about UFOs and extraterrestrial life that deserves further investigation by the Congress.
- Reply to a White House claim in an official response to an earlier petition that there is no evidence supporting the extraterrestrial hypothesis.
- Stimulate Citizen Hearings in other countries by having the Citizen Hearing translated into the five most important world languages.
- Draw attention to the tremendous number of witnesses, researchers and activists working on disclosing the evidence of an extraterrestrial presence.
- Create a 501(c)3 organization that can gain funding for future Citizen Hearings.
A documentary will be produced from the Citizen Hearing which will be titled Truth Embargo. The April 28-May 3 Citizen Hearing is free and open to the public. More details are available at its main website.

The Pope’s resignation speech on Monday morning has left Vatican experts baffled over the real reason for his resignation. Most are dismissive of his stated health reason for resigning. Some commentators believe he was ordered to go by powerful behind the scenes forces who believed that the time was right for a new Pope. Some speculate that the Pope was ordered to resign by the Knights of Malta, a powerful behind the scenes Catholic order which has sovereign representative status at the United Nations. They may be right. After all, in 2005 when he began his Papacy, Pope Benedict was widely regarded as a place holder. Place holder for who?
The Final Pope according to the Prophesy of the Popes who would rule during the dissolution of the Catholic Church. What would emerge after the end of the Papacy and the Catholic Church, a new spiritual belief system based on world unity? What set of global events could usher in the dissolution of organized religion? For an answer, we can investigate the 1917 Fatima incident which Pope Benedict played a role in interpreting back in May 2000.
Three young children received six apparitions of the Virgin Mary over a period of six months from May to October 1917. Lucia Santos and her cousins Jacinta and Francisco Marto received three prophecies or secrets. Two of the secrets were revealed by Lucia in 1941 in a document requested by Jose da Silva, Bishop of Leiria.
The First Secret concerned a vision of Hell on earth which was mitigated for the children by the promise that they and others would be taken to heaven by their devotion to the “Immaculate Heart of Mary.” Given that the apparitions occurred during the lead up to some of the most intense fighting of the First World War, the First Secret appeared to be a statement of contemporary global events. The Second Secret predicted a second World War and future calamities if Russia was not converted by the prayers of the faithful, and their dedication to the Virgin Mary. Both the onset of the Second World War and the dissolution of the Soviet Union in 1991 have been regarded as supporters of the Fatima event as vindication of the Second Secret which seemed unthinkable at the time it was first publicly revealed. The Third Secret was not initially revealed by Lucia to the Bishop of Leiria in 1941 because she was “not yet convinced that God had clearly authorized her to act.” Two years later, the Bishop ordered Lucia to put the secret in writing. She wrote the secret down on a sheet of paper, put it in an envelope and sent it to the Bishop in June 1944 with the instruction that it was not to be opened until 1960 when “it will appear clearer.” The “Third Secret of Fatima” was not released to the public for another 56 years fueling speculation that it prophesied calamitous times for the Catholic Church. In May 2000, the Vatican released a document that did indeed reveal calamitous times ahead for the Catholic Church:
And we saw in an immense light that is God: `something similar to how people appear in a mirror when they pass in front of it’ a Bishop dressed in White, `we had the impression that it was the Holy Father’. Other Bishops, Priests, men and women Religious going up a steep mountain, at the top of which there was a big Cross of rough-hewn trunks as of a cork-tree with the bark; before reaching there the Holy Father passed through a big city half in ruins and half trembling with halting step, afflicted with pain and sorrow, he prayed for the souls of the corpses he met on his way; having reached the top of the mountain, on his knees at the foot of the big Cross he was killed by a group of soldiers who fired bullets and arrows at him, and in the same way there died one after another the other Bishops, Priests, men and women Religious, and various lay people of different ranks and positions.
Lucia later confirmed in communications with the Vatican that the Bishop dressed in White was a future Pope, but she did not know who. The Third Secret did indeed refer to the death of a Pope in a way that echoed the Prophesy of the Popes. The systematic death of Bishops and other religious figures in a ruined city appeared to symbolize the destruction of Rome and the Catholic Church. So did the Third Secret of Fatima prophesy that the Catholic Church would come to an end, and the last Pope killed? The theological commentary accompanying the Third Secret of Fatima was written by none other than Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, the current Pope Benedict, who then headed the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith. His deputy, Archbishop Tarcisio Bertone wrote: “Fatima is undoubtedly the most prophetic of modern apparitions.” While Ratzinger agreed with the prophetic value of the three secrets of Fatima, his interpretation of the Third Secret was that the death of the Pope symbolized the attempted assassination of John Paul II, and the persecution suffered by the Church in the 20th century.
What is the meaning of the “secret” of Fatima as a whole (in its three parts)? What does it say to us? First of all we must affirm with Cardinal Sodano: … “the events to which the third part of the “secret” of Fatima refers now seem part of the past.” Insofar as individual events are described, they belong to the past. Those who expected exciting apocalyptic revelations about the end of the world or the future course of history are bound to be disappointed.
So what was it about the Fatima event and the apparition of the Virgin Mary that could lead to the Vatican withholding the Third Secret for over fifty years until 2000? Was it because it did allude to or confirm what was found in the Prophesy of the Popes – the end of the Papacy and the Catholic Church? Or was withholding the Secret part of the Church’s strategy to see if it would outlast the Communist ideology, which did directly persecute Christians in the Soviet bloc? Pope Benedict opted for the second answer in giving his theological commentary in May 2000, but he knew that Fatima event was not simply a spiritual incident. The Pope knew that Fatima was actually a case of a UFO sighting witnessed by thousands in this remote Portuguese town. The Marian apparition witnessed by the three girls was related to extraterrestrials aboard the UFO whose revelations proved to be incredibly prophetic. The final of which involved the end of the Papacy and the Catholic Church. The real reason behind the Pope’s sudden resignation announcement may be that the Catholic Church is about to be convulsed by events related to the appearance of extraterrestrial life bearing a transformative spiritual message for humanity – one that will bring an end to organized religion around the world.

On Tuesday November 16, British hacker Gary McKinnon finally won his decade long battle to avoid extradition to the US to face charges of hacking into the computer systems of NASA, the Pentagon and other government agencies. McKinnon claimed to have found photographs, film, and other evidence of alien spacecraft secretly held by various U.S. government agencies. In deciding to block the US extradition efforts, British Home Secretary Theresa May said she decided in favor of McKinnon “after medical experts concluded he was seriously ill and likely to attempt to take his own life." While McKinnon still risks prosecution by British authorities, it's unlikely that further legal action will be taken against him. Will McKinnon reveal more about what the US government knows about UFOs and extraterrestrial life now that he now longer faces extradition?
McKinnon first hacked into NASA's Johnson Space Center and said:
… he found a high definition picture of a large cigar shaped object over the northern hemisphere. He said that he was so shocked by the picture that he didn’t think to immediately save it. He also said that the file size was so large that is was difficult to view it on his computer. Eventually his connection was lost, and so was the picture.
When McKinnon later hacked into classified files of U.S. Space Command (incorporated into Strategic Command on October 1, 2002 soon after McKinnon was caught), he discovered a number of naval terms such as "fleet-to-fleet transfers" concerning non-terrestrial officers. He said:
I found a list of officers' names … under the heading 'Non-Terrestrial Officers’. It doesn't mean little green men. What I think it means is not Earth-based. I found a list of 'fleet-to-fleet transfers', and a list of ship names. I looked them up. They weren't US Navy ships. What I saw made me believe they have some kind of spaceship, off-planet."
McKinnon’s startling discovery cast light on what had been earlier revealed by no less than a former President of the United States: Ronald Reagan. In President Reagan's Diary, the entry for Tuesday, June 11, 1985 (page 334) reads:
Lunch with 5 top space scientist. It was fascinating. Space truly is the last frontier and some of the developments there in astronomy etc. are like science fiction, except they are real. I learned that our shuttle capacity is such that we could orbit 300 people.
Reagan’s comment was revealing since the recently retired Space Shuttle held a maximum of eight people and only five were built for space flight. Even if all five took off fully loaded it would be impossible to place and maintain 300 astronauts in orbit. Was Reagan revealing the existence of a highly classified space program that could accommodate hundreds of astronauts in orbit? Apparently so, according to dozens of military and corporate whistleblowers. Hidden within one of the nine unified combatant commands of the U.S. military, as McKinnon later discovered, appeared to be a highly classified fleet of aircraft carrier sized ships that operate in outer space.
Now that McKinnon no longer faces the threat of extradition and is unlikely to be prosecuted by British authorities, he may be able to reveal more about what he learned from sensitive U.S. military and government computer files about UFOs and extraterrestrial life.
