Over the course of history, many have tried and failed to claim the ultimate prize – the hard, cold, irrefutable evidence, for extra-terrestrial life. In this day and age, surprisingly, this turns out to be harder than imagined. Although we now have smartphones, cameras, and things like YouTube, it’s still difficult to determine whether or not a footage is really showing something other-worldly. I am most definitely not denying that it is the case – it’s just very difficult to come by that one piece of video needed.
So people started looking in other places. For more physical evidence. Believers of ancient alien visitations claim that certain things in writings don’t add up. They say that these people really did describe what they saw before them. And to those believers, the only plausible explanation is that, what is described, is from out of this world.
Oak Island and the “Money Pit”
Some believe that the ultimate prize can be found on a very small island that goes by this name. On it, or rather, underneath it, is something which is now referred to as the Money Pit. Discovered by accident in 1795, it presents one of the greatest enigmas of all time. In precision, it is only second to the Pyramids. In complexity, it contends with the Pyramids. In ingenuity, it is almost as good as the Pyramids.
So it has come to my attention, that, not too long ago, something seriously weird happened in Norway… would you believe it. It’s one of the countries with relatively little UFO activity – or not much that I know of anyways.
What you’re about to see is… well, quite something. I don’t know how to explain it myself. I have seen a few footages of this particular object now, and I’m at a loss to explain it. For lack of a better word, it looks very alien.
To my knowledge, most UFOs are some kind of airborne vehicle that has some form of propulsion – but you could always discern some shape (triangular or example), and you were able to tell that it is moving with unrivaled precision. This one however, really boggles the mind.
The pictured object was seen near a military base in Norway. It reportedly stayed in the sky for a few moments, before it sort of disintegrated into what was only described as a “black hole”. The deformation happens while the spiral is, well, spiraling, and keeps on spiraling until the deformation encompasses the entire object.
What adds spice to the soup of this one is the overall appearance of the object. If you look closely, there appears to be something that could only be described as a trail of some sorts. But from what? Atmosphere (re-)entry? Cruising through clouds at high speed? This is indeed puzzling.
If the trail is not very long, it could be argued that it took off from the ground. If however the trail is much longer than we can perceive with a camera, it is possible it traversed a long distance.
As it stands right now, I have trouble finding a reasonable explanation for this appearance. It does not seem to be a conventional vehicle or flying machine that can be controlled by people – us or aliens. It does not seem to be a threat either.
What exact purpose this served is completely bewildering – and now the fuel of many speculations. Some say it could a be a portal of some kind – a trans-dimensional portal through which UFOs may come and go. One thing is clear though: I do not believe this to be a natural thing, since we would have seen quite a lot of those things by now if it were.
It is often believed by supporters that UFOs and their inhabitants and thus pilots, have found a way to circumvent certain problems that arise with interstellar travel. While the speed of light is relatively (/rimshot) speedy, you can never reach it. And even if you could, it’d still be pretty damn slow for effective travel. One of the theories proposed includes folding of space – meaning bringing the destination closer to the origin – then it would be as simple as stepping through a door – or portal – if you will, and you can traverse billions of light years in a second. It is theoretically possible.
Another similar type of UFOs was seen not too long ago – however this time, the spiral appeared to be traveling, with another object emerging from it mid-air.
All of these are very strange indeed. I most certainly have not seen of, or heard of those kind of UFOs before. It may not even be alien – but if it isn’t, then what exactly are we looking at? A new form of experiment? HAARP even? New propulsion technology? Or are these really of alien origin? If so, maybe the technology utilized is too advanced for us to understand.
Either way. I’m terrified and reassured, that we haven’t yet explained all the mysteries in the universe.
Here are the videos where the screenshots come from, so you can see for yourself.
NASA’s Kepler mission has found the first planet that’s much like our own (average temperature: 22 degrees Celsius), AND is in the habitable zone (also known as “Green Zone”) around it’s star.
This find should put an immediate end to non-believers and skeptics who are in doubt whether or not another planet like Earth exists out there.
I’d say this is the first of many many out there. To the people in the know, it’s clear what’s going on with alien visitors. We are just getting more official confirmation.
NASA’s Kepler mission has confirmed its first planet in the “habitable zone,” the region where liquid water could exist on a planet’s surface. Kepler also has discovered more than 1,000 new planet candidates, nearly doubling its previously known count. Ten of these candidates are near-Earth-size and orbit in the habitable zone of their host star. Candidates require follow-up observations to verify they are actual planets.
The newly confirmed planet, Kepler-22b, is the smallest yet found to orbit in the middle of the habitable zone of a star similar to our sun. The planet is about 2.4 times the radius of Earth. Scientists don’t yet know if Kepler-22b has a predominantly rocky, gaseous or liquid composition, but its discovery is a step closer to finding Earth-like planets.
Previous research hinted at the existence of near-Earth-size planets in habitable zones, but clear confirmation proved elusive. Two other small planets orbiting stars smaller and cooler than our sun recently were confirmed on the very edges of the habitable zone, with orbits more closely resembling those of Venus and Mars.
“This is a major milestone on the road to finding Earth’s twin,” said Douglas Hudgins, Kepler program scientist at NASA Headquarters in Washington. “Kepler’s results continue to demonstrate the importance of NASA’s science missions, which aim to answer some of the biggest questions about our place in the universe.”
Kepler discovers planets and planet candidates by measuring dips in the brightness of more than 150,000 stars to search for planets that cross in front, or “transit,” the stars. Kepler requires at least three transits to verify a signal as a planet.
“Fortune smiled upon us with the detection of this planet,” said William Borucki, Kepler principal investigator at NASA Ames Research Center at Moffett Field, Calif., who led the team that discovered Kepler-22b. “The first transit was captured just three days after we declared the spacecraft operationally ready. We witnessed the defining third transit over the 2010 holiday season.”
The Kepler science team uses ground-based telescopes and the Spitzer Space Telescope to review observations on planet candidates the spacecraft finds. The star field that Kepler observes in the constellations Cygnus and Lyra can only be seen from ground-based observatories in spring through early fall. The data from these other observations help determine which candidates can be validated as planets.
Kepler-22b is located 600 light-years away. While the planet is larger than Earth, its orbit of 290 days around a sun-like star resembles that of our world. The planet’s host star belongs to the same class as our sun, called G-type, although it is slightly smaller and cooler.
Of the 54 habitable zone planet candidates reported in February 2011, Kepler-22b is the first to be confirmed. This milestone will be published in The Astrophysical Journal.
The Kepler team is hosting its inaugural science conference at Ames Dec. 5-9, announcing 1,094 new planet candidate discoveries. Since the last catalog was released in February, the number of planet candidates identified by Kepler has increased by 89 percent and now totals 2,326. Of these, 207 are approximately Earth-size, 680 are super Earth-size, 1,181 are Neptune-size, 203 are Jupiter-size and 55 are larger than Jupiter.
The findings, based on observations conducted May 2009 to September 2010, show a dramatic increase in the numbers of smaller-size planet candidates.
Kepler observed many large planets in small orbits early in its mission, which were reflected in the February data release. Having had more time to observe three transits of planets with longer orbital periods, the new data suggest that planets one to four times the size of Earth may be abundant in the galaxy.
The number of Earth-size and super Earth-size candidates has increased by more than 200 and 140 percent since February, respectively.
There are 48 planet candidates in their star’s habitable zone. While this is a decrease from the 54 reported in February, the Kepler team has applied a stricter definition of what constitutes a habitable zone in the new catalog, to account for the warming effect of atmospheres, which would move the zone away from the star, out to longer orbital periods.
“The tremendous growth in the number of Earth-size candidates tells us that we’re honing in on the planets Kepler was designed to detect: those that are not only Earth-size, but also are potentially habitable,” said Natalie Batalha, Kepler deputy science team lead at San Jose State University in San Jose, Calif. “The more data we collect, the keener our eye for finding the smallest planets out at longer orbital periods.”
NASA’s Ames Research Center manages Kepler’s ground system development, mission operations and science data analysis. NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif., managed Kepler mission development.
Ball Aerospace and Technologies Corp. in Boulder, Colo., developed the Kepler flight system and supports mission operations with the Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics at the University of Colorado in Boulder.
The Space Telescope Science Institute in Baltimore archives, hosts and distributes the Kepler science data. Kepler is NASA’s 10th Discovery Mission and is funded by NASA’s Science Mission Directorate at the agency’s headquarters.
David Martines, a so-called Armchair Astronaut, has found something rather unusual on Google Mars, a knock-off of the well-known Google Maps or Earth. The discovery appears to be an artificial structure sitting on the surface of Mars, on the northern part of the planet. The structure is rather huge and seems to be cylindrical in shape. It is clearly different from the surface, and completely white. What purpose this serves… who knows.
Maybe it’s just a camera glitch. Maybe it’s something of profound importance. We all know that the farthest we have gone is the Moon, unless there’s something not being said to us. Or is this really made by people, other than us? And if so, what is its purpose?

We have all heard of little green men from Mars.
But now an American ‘armchair astronaut’ claims to have discovered a mysterious structure on the surface of the red planet – by looking on Google earth.
David Martines, whose YouTube video of the ‘station’ has racked up over 200,000 hits so far, claims to have randomly uncovered the picture while scanning the surface of the planet one day.
Both of his videos have been removed by Mr. Martines himself – or so YouTube says. I’d doubt that he would go and remove videos of this magnitude. Unfortunately the YouTube page does not reveal the account name, so I could not check for other videos of him.
Describing the ‘structure’ as a living quarters with red and blue stripes on it, to the untrained eye it looks nothing more than a white splodge on an otherwise unblemished red landscape.
He even lists the co-ordinates: 49’19.73″N 29 33’06.53″W so others can go see the anomaly for themselves.
In a pre-recorded ‘fly by’ video of the object, Mr Martines describes what he thinks the station might be.
He said: ‘This is a video of something I discovered on Google Mars quite by accident.
‘I call it Bio-station Alpha, because I’m just assuming that something lives in it or has lived in it.’
‘It’s very unusual in that it’s quite large, it’s over 700 feet long and 150 feet wide, it looks like it’s a cylinder or made up of cylinders.
‘It could be a power station or it could be a biological containment or it could be a glorified garage – hope it’s not a weapon.
‘Whoever put it up there had a purpose I’m sure. I couldn’t imagine what the purpose was. I couldn’t imagine why anybody would want to live on Mars.
‘It could be a way station for weary space travellers. It could also belong to NASA, I don’t know that they would admit that.
‘I don’t know if they could pull off such a project without all the people seeing all the material going up there. I sort of doubt NASA has anything to do with this.
‘I don’t know if NASA even knows about this.’
The ‘discovery’ is similar to that of the infamous ‘face on Mars’
Uncovered by the Viking 1 probe in 1976, a quirk of geography threw shadows over a small hill on the Cydonia region of Mars, making the inanimate rock look like a carved face.
The picture was heralded as proof of an alien civilisation by some but was dismissed as a mere trick of the light by scientists at NASA.
Mail Online has tried to contact both NASA and Goggle for a response to the image, but neither has replied.
Today comes with shocking news to all astronomers and believers around the globe. SETI, the Search for Extra Terrestrial Intelligence, is too broke to continue with the program – effectively ending all current operations immediately. The Government won’t be funding the project, claiming the chase for alien life is more like chasing rainbows than anything else.
The shutdown comes with a bit of irony, seeing that we are now discovering a lot of other planets outside the Solar System – around 25,000 have now been found. If Zeta-Reticulans send a signal, they might get a “Sorry – the number you have dialed has been disconnected”.
SETI’s biggest, most famous moment, happened on August 15, 1977, when it received a signal which appeared as one to be expected from an artificially created transmitter. It is known as the “Wow!”-Signal, and spawned a massive research in its wake.
The name comes from the comment that was made beside it, and news quickly traveled around the world. The signal lasted for 72 seconds, and was not found again. It is believed the signal originated in the constellation of Sagittarius.
In the research that followed, it was concluded with a high probability that the signal was artificial and intelligently created.
The SETI program at the Allen Array was operational for four years.
