NASA's rover discovered mysterious balls on Mars

NASA's rover Opportunity which is on Mars, has sent photographs of mysterious beads that have puzzled scientists. Unusual formations were found last week in an area which is called Kirkwood, in the western part of the crater Endeavour.

When they saw the pictures with unusual beads on Mars, the scientists initially thought that it was a so-called 'Mars blueberries', which were discovered in year 2004. with the same rover, but experts have found that the diameter and the concentration of iron does not suit to them, writes portal Themoderatevoice.

"This is one of the most unusual photos of the mission. Kirkwood is full of these objects. First we thought it was a case of 'blueberries', but this is something else. We have not seen such dense clusters of spherical objects on Mars before," said lead researcher Steve Squyres from Cornell University. Opportunity checked the composition of detected balls and, says S. Squyres, they look like as soft on the inside and solid on the outside.

"They are different per concentration. They are different in structure. They are different by the composition and coverage. Therefore, in front of us is a fascinating geological puzzle," said Squyres, adding that scientists need more time to find an answer to the question of what exactly is that.

Otherwise, 'Mars' blueberries' are formations that were created by water rich with minerals in the rock. They are proof that Mars was much wetter planet.

I am happy that we can hear new informations. It is nice to know that every day we know more about that planet.


The World Will End In 2012

Some scientists believe that there is a real threat to planet Earth this year – that is 2012.

According to these scientists, the Planet Earth will be destroyed on the 21st of December 2012. Many religious leaders have also said that the world will end in December 2012.

But when scientists from NASA were contacted and asked about their opinion regarding the destruction of the world in 2012, they had this to say:

The world coming to an end in 2012 is a big joke. Nothing bad is going to happen to planet Earth in 2012.

NASA seems very confident about the world not coming to an end in 2012 but a certain group of scientists called the Sumerians do not agree with them. According to the Sumerians, they have discovered a planet called Nibiru which is a wayward planet that is rapidly heading towards planet Earth.

According to this group of scientists, the planet Nibiru will collide with earth on the exact date of the 21st of December 2012. The collusion according to them will bring an end to our beloved planet Earth and of course life.

But NASA has debunked this theory reminding us to cast our mind back to several years ago when this same group of scientists had predicted that planet Nibiru would collide with earth in May 2003.

Did it happen? NASA asks us all.

Of course it did not happen and planet Earth is still safe and sound. According to NASA, the Earth ending in 2012 is nothing but a big fable.

NASA backed their statement saying that had planet Nibiru been real and heading towards planet Earth in 2012, then it would have been visible by now by the naked eye.

According to NASA, there is no factual basis for the claims that the Earth will end in 2012.


Top Destinations for December 21, 2012

As the Popol Vuh's penultimate date for our era creeps ever closer, we thought it a good time to poll some Reality Sandwich contributors and find out where they would most like to find themselves on the coming Winter Solstice, December 21, 2012, as the Mayan calendar's 26,000-year astronomic cycle comes to a close. Here is a selection of the responses. 

Beauty, mystery, and danger—what more could you ask for the pre-apocalyptic party? McClure’s Beach has it all: nature at its most stunning and mysterious, as well as the ever-present danger of sneaker waves that sweep away a couple souls a year. The perfect place to be when, as Nikki Scully puts it, “the shift hits the fan.” 

Imagine this: a line of fabulously costumed avatars of advanced states of consciousness, coming down the steep trail carrying firewood, and a feast, poi, and a shrine by which the past will be honored, the present celebrated, and the future acknowledged to be up for grabs. The sun sets; the sacramental Last Supper is consumed at the edge of the thundering waves. Flutes and drums echo from the cliffs. A gibbous moon haunts the horizon. Howling is heard in the distance. The dance begins.

The sky opens like a burst pinata; the path to the galactic center is revealed; choices are made; broken promises are forgiven; karma suspended; love and terror join hands and traverse the stairway to heaven. Sunrise brings the First Breakfast, and the universe begins again, according to custom, with the smell of bacon.

With the ancient Mayan Calendar nearing its much-anticipated finale, modern-day observers are searching for the best party on the planet to celebrate the occasion. Devotees of underground dance music, look no further than Day Zero Festival. The brainchild of visionary DJ/producer Damian Lazarus, Day Zero has been dubbed “the rave to end all raves”—an epic dance party synchronized to trace the course of 24 hours leading to the prophetic crescendo of 6:11 P.M. on December 21st, 2012. Set in an as-yet-unopened Mayan theme park in Playa del Carmen, Mexico, just hours from sacred ruin sites, the revelry unfolds amid a stepped pyramid, two lakes, and four swimming pools. Picture Chichén Itzá meets Ibiza, with a Terrence McKenna twist.

Against this mythic backdrop, Lazarus has curated a suitably stellar lineup of forward-thinking electronic artists including Jamie Jones, Trentemøller, Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, 3D (Massive Attack) vs. James Lavelle (U.N.K.L.E.), and dozens more. The sonic abundance, visual spectacle, and natural beauty Day Zero promises are enough to make any seasoned raver swoon. But Lazarus intends something deeper than just a party. Mayan elders will lead special ceremonies throughout the event, while guests take classes in yoga and meditation to explore the magical energy of the moment. The spirit embraced here is not fear and destruction but a profound transition in time opening up an opportunity for rebirth and positive progression. Day Zero aims to enlighten and uplift—while getting down to the most amazing music in the universe. Bring on the dancepocalypse!

When I think of the approaching "end" of the Mayan calendar, my mind sees it as one of those sped-up movie montages where the passing of time is illustrated by the days of a calendar peeling away in fast-forward, just before slowing to a stop at an important date.

Regardless of what meaning the date has for anyone else, for me it now represents an opportunity. And the vast, empty, virtual quietude of Joshua Tree National Park seems a most fitting place to be when the calendar comes to that halt (permanently or otherwise) on December 21st.

The appeal to Joshua Tree is, like most any ancient and virtually untouched place filled with magical realms both seen and unseen, it seems better equipped at handling such a shift than most anywhere else on the planet. And as a Los Angeles resident deeply involved in my local community, it feels important to be close to home during the galactic alignment. The park, just two hours from LA, provides a wireless respite from the tangled web that keeps Los Angeles abuzz. Free from the nonstop pulse of electromagnetic stimulation and grounding out among the massive, ancient rocks with just the charge of excitement and inspiration about nothing in particular to surge through me, I'll glimpse up at the starry night—as if it were my last—through the park's immense skyline, patiently opening to whatever will happen within the universe…or within me…no difference really, anyway.

On Friday evening December 21, 2012, the place I would most like to be is the same place I would most like to be every other Friday night: at home, cuddled up with my wife Shari and our two cats, Peanut (who never got over a bad Ketamine trip) and Squarcialupi (Italian Catholic stand-up comedian cat)—wearing our pajamas, watching a movie, reading a little, going to bed and snuggling for the 43 seconds it takes for Shari to be completely out.

I once heard Terence McKenna confess that there was a possibility his calculations may have been slightly off—by about 2000 years—and that TEOTWAWKI might not actually occur until December 21, 4012.  (So plan accordingly. A few extra bags of rice, maybe.)

Obviously our world is undergoing massive transformations on every level, but I am convinced that this process began a few weeks before the beginning of beginning-less time, and is likely to continue beyond the end of endless time, regardless of whether or not our planet disappears in the interim, along with its unseemly, surface infestation of two-legged creatures.

My sense is that the end of the world as we know it actually occurs every moment; but if there were going to be a specific, dramatic turning point on a particular day, it is far more likely to happen on a Saturday, when most people have the day off.

My desired December 21 location: a sunny, geologically stable, sovereign landscape, in a lovingly hand crafted home in the forest. Wood stove blazing. Spring water flowing. Family and friends as abundant as the food. All ages and ancestors. Rocket stove roaring. Cheers! Deer and fox, wolves and salmon dance outside in snow. Birds fly by, jungle cats slither, a cow jumped over the moon. Things just got weird – and wonderfully resolved – layers overwhelmingly blooming. Like Lite-Brite the stars re-arrange the big picture for everyone to see – continuously reminding, restoring, and upgrading all. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 dimensions (at least) and at last! Collapsed, unfolded, connected and mingling.

When I asked Terence McKenna what he thought the ultimate goal of human evolution was, he replied, "Oh, a good party." Sounds like a good plan to me.

Whatever it is that’s happening on this wayward  world--evolution, development, order, growth, decay, chaos, or  something else entirely--it’s happening faster and faster, and getting weirder and weirder all the time. So it appears that our  species is headed toward something really big--like the destruction of the planetary biosphere and our extinction, our entrance into a  magnificent, technologically-advanced, spiritually-aware world that  is beyond our wildest imaginings, the Singularity, the end of  historical time, or our descent into the infinite novelty of a DMT vision.

As the interspatial portals to the higher realms dilate into superpositional dimensions, antiquated reality constructs eagerly dissolve themselves into primordial plasma, and the interstellar community merrily welcomes us into the Federation of Awakened Galaxies. On the magical night that the ancient Mayan calendar draws to a close and the great transformation begin, I would most like to be melting in a smiling state of tranquil peace and blissful understanding, in the arms of the great Gaian goddess, nestled deep in her sacred heart of hearts, in the center of all existence, in the eternal void, infinity, the delicious everlasting mystery, home, with You.

This December 21 I will be joining my ayahuasca group at an undisclosed location in the American northeast, participating in an epic psychonautic all-nighter that we are calling “The Armageddon Ceremony.”  We’ll be singing from songbooks with titles like “New Era,” “New Alliance,” and probably the most daunting, “New Dimension,” the last of which prophesizes a dimensional shift toward “a new world, new people, new age, and a new teacher.”  Admittedly, I’m somehow both exhilarated, terrified, and bored by my 2012 prospects, as I could be either sailing the cosmic grooves of the high-vibe ascension love party, fighting to backstroke through a once-in-a-century tsunami on high-octane psychedelics, or simply singing in another shamanic ceremony on another date in another moment of the history of the universe.

Will something extraordinary happen on December 21? Personally, I kinda doubt it. Beginnings and endings occur every day—some major, some less so. But what do I know? Maybe on that day the coasts will flood. Maybe aliens will appear on the White House lawn. Maybe we’ll all be given some sort of glimpse into Eternity. Or maybe something that we could never have conceived of.

If that happens, you can find me at my favorite hometown café. Unlike some of the more “polished” places around, the tables there are a bit rickety and the chairs not all that comfortable. This is where the artists, the eccentrics, the tattooed dreamers go to sit, sometimes for hours on end. (I should know, since I’m there that long myself.) The lovely parrot-haired barrista draws a picture of me in the foam of my latte. It’s where I go to write. It’s where I go to meet with friends.  My husband proposed to me there, got down on one knee beside the woven tapestries on the wall with the sound of the baglama filling the background.

So whether it’s aliens, oceans rising, sudden revelation, or something else entirely, that’s where I’ll be. I’d like to be around folks who are likely to greet the new world with fire and optimism … and a cup of Dancing Goats Blend in hand. In fact, that’s where I’ll be if nothing happens at all. 

The human appetite for drama, apocalypse and terror's edge seems to be hard-wired into our psyches. We crave the tantalizing end of time, as if time could ever end at all.

We lust for the end game, imagining our small lives swept up in a fever tide of monumental events that blow up the entire experience of life in one massive, crashing pitch.

With all this in mind, I intend to spend December 21 2012 with my wife and friends, enjoying holiday cheer and assiduously avoiding yet one more round of apocalyptic chatter.

Humanity is not going to undergo a cosmic thrill ride that alters all of human history on that day. We are not going to be tossed into the yawning chasm of the mysterium tremendum.

If we have learned anything at all from every previous prediction of the end of days, it is that these events are always postponed for another tomorrow. Beneath this constant craving for massive global change and havoc lies a deep desire. That desire, that unfulfilled yearning, is nothing less than the too deeply buried calling of inner illumination. I urge all of us to avoid the repetitive stress of end game consciousness, and to turn instead to the brilliance and the revolutionary change possible through enlightened living. Do you really want a revolution?

This is the way.

Where I plan to be on December 21, 2012 is in the now ever, at the center of time.  12/21//12, as I learned from my close friend and colleague John Major Jenkins, was not thought of by the Maya as the end of time, or the beginning of time, but as the center of time. John first wrote about this in his 1995 book, The Center of Mayan Time.  John and I discuss this in a Trialogue about 2012 the Center of Time and Mythos.

From my perspective, any sort of countdown date takes you out of the now ever, the center of time, and puts you in a state of time sickness where you hope to find your salvation or transformation of some sort in the future. 

Meister Eckart, about 700 years ago put it this way:

"Time is what keeps the light from reaching us. There is no greater obstacle to God than time. And not only time but temporalities, not only temporal things but temporal affections; not only temporal affections but the very taint and smell of time". ---Meister Eckart . (c. 1260–c. 1328)

Eagerly awaiting December 21st 2012 is like hurrying toward tranquility. We are beset with time sickness, and the reset of that orientation is not to be found in time, but beyond time.

In his book, The Perennial Philosophy, Aldous Huxley points out that the religions and political philosophies that are framed in linear time are the ones that cause violence and generate suffering. The progressive may seek radical means to create a future world where conditions are more ideal. The reactionary may take repressive measures to turn the clock back to some imaginary earlier time, when "traditional" values reigned. Both seek to find their salvation in time, in the temporal world, and both will employ temporal means to get there, usually claiming that the ends justify their dubious means.

So on December 21st 2012 I hope to be in the nowever, at the center of time, and that is where I prefer to reside in general.  

Over the course of 2012, I journeyed a number of times with the sacred mushroom and repeatedly experienced a voice channel through me.  This voice repeated the advice that the “new civilizations would begin where the first civilizations had been born,” that “the beings of the earth are becoming a galactic civilization,” that “the visitors are coming to teach the voices of the next generations,” and “these voices are lights gathering at the global festivals.”

Once I learned of Synthesis Festival, a holistic indigenous and electronic music, healing, arts, and teaching festival at Chichen Itza, I knew that this event echoed the call of my medicine journeys.  Etymologically, Chichen is the serpent, and the pyrmaid of Kukulcan is filled with images of the feathered serpent—or dragon.  Also, in Chinese Astrology, We are nearing the end of the Year of the Dragon, and about to emerge into the Year of the Serpent.

It seems then, that we are riding within the wheel of the Uroboros, that serpent who swallows its own tail. This symbol of the alpha-omega point, beginning and ending at the same peak moment, is a moment of ultimate novelty, the wide-eyed, the completely new.  In his lectures, pioneering psychedelic philosopher Terence McKenna spoke of The Eschaton—a force magnetizing us, pulling us towards a singularity, and unifying apex of consciousness, a “New Sun,” that pulsing heat-light of self-awareness and identification with our Source.

The reason I chose to be in Chichen Itza was to celebrate the experience of this singularity of BEING through the reflection of thousands of others ready to weave, write, sing, and dance a new meta-narrative of humanity’s sacred role. Once I contacted the organizers and expressed my interest in participating, I was offered a role in presenting a lecture on the Shamanic Artist’s role in the Aquarian Dawn, as well as a DJ gig in the down-temple zone. This invitation confirmed my calling to the Yucatan.

And You?

We'd like to invite the RS community to share where you plan to be on December 21st in the comments section below.


The Maya Calendar and the End of the World

In recent years, there have been many books, and even more websites, concerning the calendar of theAncient Maya and the end of the world in December 2012. There is no need to list and further popularize such works as they can be found easily enough. They are prominently displayed in sections devoted entirely to the subject in popular book stores and even a cursory search of the internet will reveal a multitude of them. While each separate work and author has its own particular bias and agenda to promote, and so offers a different interpretation of the Maya Calendar, the underlying reasoning for a belief in the end of the world in 2012, at least as associated with the Maya Calendar, runs thusly: The present cycle of the ancient Maya Long Count Calendar begins 11 August 3114 BCE and concludes on 21 December 2012 CE and, because of this, the end of the world is a certainty.

In order for the Maya Calendar to be able to accurately predict an end to the world in any way, it would need to begin at the beginning of the world. It is clear from the archaeological, geological, and historical record that the world is much older than the beginning of the Maya Calendar in 3114 BCE. The great Citiesof Mesopotamia such as Akkad and Eridu had already risen to their height by the time the calendar is dated as beginning. The dynasties of Egypt were already old and the Chinese and Indian civilizations in full flourish. The Maya calculated the date of 3114 BCE as the beginning of the world based upon an earlier calendar by the Mixe-Zoque people. Their forward astronomical predictions were based upon careful observations of the skies but were understood according to the belief system which governed their understanding of how the universe worked and that understanding was that time was cyclical, not linear. Vastly different from the theological and cosmological understanding espoused by the three `great’ monotheistic religions, time was, itself, a deity, and, as such, had no end. There is, therefore, nothing in the cosmology of the Maya which suggests an end to anything, much less an end to the world.

Mayan legends routinely concern themselves with regeneration and transformation. The myth of The Xtabay recounts the lives of Xkeban, the sinner, and Utz-Colel, the virtuous, who transform in death. Xkeban, though considered a sinner for having sex outside of marriage, was more virtuous than the self-righteous and cold Utz-Colel and, when she died, filled the village with sweet perfume and exotic wildflowers known as Xtabentun grew on her grave. Nothing grew on the Grave of Utz-Colel but she was transformed into the cactus without scent, the Tzacam, and the flower known as the Xtabay (who also appears as a kind of succubus who waylays unsuspecting traveling men, seduces them, and destroys them). The legend of The Maquech tells the story of the princess Cuzan who falls in love with a man her father does not approve of. A shaman turns Cuzan’s lover into an insect which she then keeps with her always. The tale of Nicte Ha follows along the same lines in which the lovers are transformed into a beautiful red bird and a divine lotus which live eternally by the banks of a sacred cenote. The famous Popol Vuh, of course, also follows this same theme. There is nothing in the literature, Religion or in the archaeological evidence to suggest that the concept of `endings’, as understood in the western, Judeo-Christian tradition, existed in the world of the Maya and there is nothing in the Maya Calendar which supports an interpretation involving the end of the world. As the above epigraph by the Mayanist Gene S. Stuart attests, the Maya believed in “repeating cycles” and their calendar reflects that belief.

To the Maya, time did not travel in a linear movement from the past into the future but was cyclical, as were the lives of their gods (this belief is remarkably similar to that of ancient Mesopotamian Culture and other pagan civilizations which followed). In the same way that the gods of the Maya were born, developed and sustained themselves and human life, and then died to be re-born, so the years followed the same course. The Maya Calendar contains two separately working calendars which function simultaneously: the Haab, or civil calendar of 365 days in an 18 month Period of 20 days each, and the Tzolkin, or sacred calendar, of 260 days divided into three groups of months of 20 days. The Haab and the Tzolkin work together, like gears interlocking in a machine, to create what is known as the Calendar Round but cannot account for dates farther in the future than 52 days. For longer calculations, the Maya devised what is known as the Long Count Calendar and it is this which has attracted so much international attention in recent years regarding the end of the world on 21 December 2012. The Long Count calendar begins 11 August 3114 and goes into its next cycle (known as a Baktun) on 21 December 2012. This is simply a change in the cycle of the calendar – in the same way that people in the modern age observe the end of a year or the end of a century - and there is nothing in the extant writings of the Maya to suggest that any kind of cataclysm accompanies this transition.

On 10 May 2012 it was reported that Boston University archaeologist William Saturno and Boston University student Maxwell Chamberlain, excavating at the Maya site of Xultun in Guatemala, discovered a 6x6 foot room dating to 800 CE which seems conclusively to have been a calendar workshop for Mayan scribes. The paintings and inscriptions on the walls of the room show the Mayan calendar extending well beyond the year 2012 CE and that future Baktuns were understood to already be underway in the great cyclic dance of time. According to David Stuart, an expert on Maya hieroglyphs at the University of Texas at Austin, "Baktun 14 was going to be coming, and Baktun 15 and Baktun 16. ... The Maya calendar is going to keep going, and keep going for billions, trillions, octillions of years into the future." The months of the years of the Mayan calendars were governed over each by a specific God and, as these gods were eternally recurring, they assured the continuance of the energy of their particular month and, by extension, the years.

There were four deities in particular, known as The Bearers of the Years (the Bacab) who held the four cardinal points of the sky and imbued a particular year with certain energy. Muluc was the Bacab of the east and his years were always positive in energy. He was associated with the color red. Kan was the Bacab of the south, associated with yellow, and also brought good fortune. Ix, the Bacab of the north was linked with the color white while Cauac, The Bacab of the west’s color was black and both of them brought negative energy and bad fortune to the year. The Bearers of the Years changed each year as the dominant deity of that particular cycle of months and stones were very carefully rearranged on the statues in the villages and cities to denote the change. The Bacabs further reflect the cyclical vision of the Maya and the improbability that this particular culture could devise a calendar system which aimed at any certain end of the world.

Western interpretations of the Maya Calendar are just that: western. In such an interpretation time is viewed as linear, not cyclical, and, whether a particular writer adheres to Judaism or Christianity or Islam, they are still prone to view time as it has been understood in the scriptures of those religions. In monotheistic western religions God is intimately involved in the affairs of human beings in a straight chronological line from the creation of the world to the present. In Maya polytheism, the gods created the world and then acted more as guides (and sometimes not very pleasant ones) who performed certain functions in accordance with their particular brand of energy and the energy which ran through a given day or month. `Goodness' was thought to be conserved much in the same way that, in Physics, energy is and the gods granted their goodness to mortals based upon the amount of goodness given to them by human beings. This did not mean, and does not, mean that the gods waited to unleash some final wrath on the world but, rather, that one got what one gave, whether individually or as a community. The relationship between gods and humans was a transfer of energy.  The gods were personifications of the planets and of the influences those planets exerted on individuals.

Eternity, then, was not a concept involving some future life beyond the earth but was a reality of everyday life for the Maya and they were, and still continue to be, convinced of its continuance on the planet earth.

Interviews conducted by this writer with Maya daykeepers (shamans) at the sites of Chichen Itza and Uxmal revealed that the Maya calendar does not, in any way, predict an `end to the world’ but, rather, a new age, a new cycle, in precisely the same way that people in the modern age hope for change and renewal in the new year and make new year’s resolutions. If the energy humans send forth toward the gods is good, the energy which returns will be likewise. The end of the Maya Calendar is not an event to be feared but, like any new beginning, is something to be embraced and celebrated as an opportunity to move forward.

The Prophecy of Nostradamus on December 21, 2012

Aside from the Mayans who predicted the end of the world in December 21, 2012, Nostradamus is also one of the important people who also made history by predicting the end of the world as well. Actually, he already made 6,000 prophecies and he predicted most of the important events in the History of the world. He failed many times in his prophecies. However, people still believed him because most of the prophecies that he predicted that came true, became part of the history of the world.

Most of the predictions that he made is directly related to disasters, earthquakes, death, floods, war and natural phenomenon. It is said that Nostradamus predicted the rise of the French revolution. All of his predictions happened after he died. He also prophesized that world wars will happen and it will be led by Adolf Hitler. The most recent prophecy of Nostradamus is the terrorist attacks on the Twin Towers on America in September 11, 2011.

This is also the main reason why people believed the prophecy of Nostradamus about the end of the world in 2012. Aside from this, it is also accompanied by other prophecies like the end of Mayan Calendar. The prophecies that are pertaining to a single point in time made a big deal to people. They are now thinking that the end of everything is near.

However, based on the findings of experts, there is no way that the world will end on 2012. They said that Nostradamus may have predicted a lot of important historic events but still, he made a lot of false predictions. They said that there is a big chance that the 2012 prediction is also a false one. They also said that there are not scientific explanations on the possible event that will explain the prediction of Nostradamus.

Another version of the prediction is another world war between Muslims and Christians. The prophecy stated that during the past years, both Muslims and Christians are starting to make progress in terms of weaponry. Nostradamus said that there will be a nuclear war that will wipe out more than half of the population of the world. It will also leave everything in chaos.

This prediction does not mean that it is already the end of the world because there is still a chance of survival. Most of his predictions also came from the bible. One of the interpretations of his prediction is global climate change or a solar impact on the world that will surely obliterate everything on earth. However, the Bible did not reveal any dates on the prophecy. This is the only difference on the prophecy of Nostradamus and the Bible.

As the date draw closer, people are continuously looking for answers. As of now, there are no clear answers, but there is surely something worth waiting on the said date.


U.F.O. avoids a plane above Houston

On November 28, 2012, a man, living in United States of America, has photographed a U.F.O. above city of Houston (in Texas). On the photo, we can see an alien spacecraft who avoid a human plane in the sky!

Witness is called Irving O. Valencia. I suggest you to read his incredible experience published on website “UFO Casebook”:

« On my way back home, I was in my car listening to the radio while I was driving. It was a bright sunny day (11/28/12) at a red light I spoted an airplane high above the immense dawn sky, leaving a contrails behind it.

This was nothing unusual to me. The light turned green, I keep driving, it was kind of impossible not stare at the contrails in front of my view.

While I was driving and looking up, I started seeing a bright, round circle right where the airplane was going, the airplane started making a turn, like it was avoiding whatever that circle was.

The circle was moving like it was dancing. All I thought at that moment was that nobody was going to believe what my eyes were seeing. So I grabbed my phone while I was driving and took three pictures.

Once I stopped my car at a red light the bright circle shined and it disappeared. I'm not sure what that thing was, all I know is that I hope to see it again.

This picture is 100% real with no editing or photoshop done on it from my HTC Sensation 4G on T-Mobile.

Special thanks to the witness Irwin O Valencia for this sighting report. »


A UFO hunted by military aircraft over Kentucky

A man (who calls himself L.B.) has sent a mail to UFOlogist Scott C. Waring to tell him a very strange story. On December 1st, 2012, with his family, he has sighted a U.F.O pursued by several military aircraft … .

The scene has taken place in the city of Lawrence County (state of Kentucky) early evening …

 "It was a little past 7 o'clock pm, my aunt yelled for my boyfriend and I to come outside and look. We ran out, looked in the sky and noticed this large diamond shaped looking UFO. It was moving pretty fast. The lights were orange/yellow shining all around it. It was the most amazing thing I have ever saw. It was exciting, yet so scary. Not even a minute later, we witnessed several military planes, headed in the same direction. These planes were moving much slower than what, we're positive, was a UFO. The planes just kept coming. It was so crazy to watch. I called my brother next door, told him about it and he said he saw a UFO disappear into thin air half an hour after that. This is my second sighting, this year! I'm so amazed. Thought I'd share this with you!!!!"


The Apocalyptic Prophecies of the Hopi People

Every people know the famous apocalyptic prophecy of Mayas. According to some researchers, our World will finish the December 21, 2012. But another Native American people, the Hopis, have predicted catastrophic events for our future.

Prophecies come from a book written in 1997 by Bob Frissel and entitled “Something In This Book is True”. We can discover the story of Reverend David Young. During the summer of 1958, he meets a hopi who walked along a desert road in Southest of United States of America. The Native American told him the incredible prophecy of White Feather. 

"'I am White Feather, a Hopi of the ancient Bear Clan. In my long life I have traveled through this land, seeking out my brothers, and learning from them many things filled with wisdom. I have followed the sacred paths of my people, who inhabit the forests and many lakes in the east, the land of ice and long nights in the north, and the places of holy altars of stone built many years ago by my brothers' fathers in the south. From all these I have heard the stories of the past, and the prophecies of the future. Today, many of the prophecies have turned to stories, and few are left -- the past grows longer, and the future grows shorter.

"'And now White Feather is dying. His sons have all joined his ancestors, and soon he too shall be with them. But there is no one left, no one to recite and pass on the ancient wisdom. My people have tired of the old ways -- the great ceremonies that tell of our origins, of our emergence into the Fourth World, are almost all abandoned, forgotten, yet even this has been foretold.

The time grows short.

"'My people await Pahana, the lost White Brother [from the stars], as do all our brothers in the land. He will not be like the white men we know now, who are cruel and greedy. We were told of their coming long ago. But still we await Pahana.

"'He will bring with him the symbols, and the missing piece of that sacred tablet now kept by the elders, given to him when he left, that shall identify him as our True White Brother.

"'The Fourth World shall end soon, and the Fifth World will begin. This the elders everywhere know. The Signs over many years have been fulfilled, and so few are left.

"'This is the First Sign: We are told of the coming of the white-skinned men, like Pahana, but not living like Pahana -- men who took the land that was not theirs. And men who struck their enemies with thunder. [First sign of guns.]

"'This is the Second Sign: Our lands will see the coming of spinning wheels filled with voices. In his youth, my father saw this prophecy come true with his eyes -- the white men bringing their families in wagons across the prairies.

"'This is the Third Sign: A strange beast like a buffalo but with great long horns will overrun the land in large numbers. These White Feather saw with his eyes --the coming of the white men's cattle.

"'This is the Fourth Sign: The land will be crossed by snakes of iron. [Railroad tracks]

"'This is the Fifth Sign: The land shall be crisscrossed by a giant spider's web. [Electric power and telephone lines]

"'This is the Sixth Sign: The land shall be crisscrossed with rivers of stone that make pictures in the sun. [Highways and their mirage-producing effects]

"'This is the Seventh Sign: You will hear of the sea turning black, and many living things dying because of it. [Oil spills in the ocean]

"'This is the Eighth Sign: You will see many youth, who wear their hair long like my people, come and join the tribal nations, to learn their ways and wisdom. ["Hippie Movement" of the 1960s]

"'And this is the Ninth and Last Sign: You will hear of a dwelling-place in the heavens, above the earth, that shall fall with a great crash. It will appear as a blue star. Very soon after this, the ceremonies of my people will cease. [The Ninth Sign was the U.S. Space Station Skylab, which fell to Earth in 1979.
According to Australian eyewitnesses, it appeared to be burning blue.]

"'These are the Signs that great destruction is coming. The world shall rock to and fro. The white man will battle against other people in other lands -- with those who possessed the first light of wisdom [Israel?]. There will be many columns of smoke and fire such as White Feather has seen the white man make in the deserts not far from here. [Atomic Bomb] Only those which come will cause disease and a great dying. Many of my people, understanding the prophecies, shall be safe. Those who stay and live in the places of my people also shall be safe. Then there will be much to rebuild. And soon -- very soon afterward -- Pahana will return. He shall bring with him the dawn of the Fifth World. He shall plant the seeds of his wisdom in their hearts. Even now the seeds are being planted. These shall smooth the way to the Emergence into the Fifth World.

"'But White Feather shall not see it. I am old and dying. Perhaps you will see it. In time, in time....'


A strange U.F.O. observed over West Oakland in California

In the port city of Oakland (State of California), a strange unidentified flying object has been sighted, in November 12, 2012. A that moment, in yards, situated in neighborhood of West Oakland, sky was cloudless and viewing conditions were perfects.

Here, you can read the comprehensive witness published on UFO Casebook website:

« I was chatting with my neighbor at her back gate, our yards are connected by a wide concrete walkway, and we were just enjoying the weather and shooting the breeze. I felt in awe of the clarity of the day, and just a bit antsy. I didn't know why.

I kept searching the skies, but there was nothing to see but BLUE... but I always look up when I am out. I had just looked up, and looked down, for a minute, then looked back up again...and there was something in the air that was reflecting the sunlight brightly.

It for all the world looked like a piece of paper, but super shiny.

It floated around at bird flight height, or high as a kite, rolling and tumbling like loose paper. My neighbor said, "Oh, that's a kite, see the string?"

I didn't let her get away with that, so I told her more or less, "THERE IS NO STRING ON THAT, AND YOU DON'T SEE ONE!" which she really didn't, and neither did I.

We watched for 2 minutes more silently... and a large regular bird flew underneath it, but the object was much higher than the bird, and bigger, my neighbor quipped up, "It's a bird!"

I asked, "Do you see any wings flapping?" She smiled, and replied, "Nope." She asked me, "What do you think it is?"

Looking at the object again, which would go higher, then come lower, but always tumbling like blowing paper, or a loose leaf, I said, "It looks like a flying sheet of aluminum foil."

There was absolutely NO WIND for this foil sheet to be tumbling from, yet it was coming from a northeasterly direction headed southeasterly.

We had a clear view of it, and watched it sort of pause from moving horizontally, and watched it begin to ascend vertically, because it appeared to get smaller, and when it would descend a little lower it would get larger, but never close enough for us to determine exactly what it was because it was always reflecting the sun... glowing brightly.

After 5 minutes we had to look at it sideways because it was hurting our necks to look straight up.

I told my neighbor, "Ok, I wasn't expecting one, but that's a UFO. It looks thin as foil, but foil cannot fly, and it doesn't look like that is the sun on it, it looks like it is actually glowing on its own. The glow was a white hot yellow color."

When it moved higher over our heads it looked like a twinkling star in the daytime.

It flew out a bit, farther, but not far, and my neighbor said, "LOOK! can you see them? there is more like that one; there are a LOT of them!"

She was right; the sky was now full of glittering stars, and flying foils; roughly about 15-20 of them, but they didn't loiter. They tumbled and glittered past the one we were observing. A lot of them were higher up.

They were going southeasterly as well, and were ascending.

Our foil trailed them a piece, then came back and loitered over our heads tumbling and glowing. When the last of the glitter past overhead, the glowing foil went higher and joined them; in the distance they looked exactly like stars in the daytime.

We watched till it all disappeared.

My neighbor looked at me and I looked at her. We had nothing to say, but when the mass of glitter bits flew by I felt the 'sudden' need to not be so out in the open.

I felt strangely like we were being observed.

One flying low was strange, but had the others come closer down, I would have jumped my neighbor’s gate, and I can't jump; sort of like trying to escape from a swarm of bees, and we would have run into her house. I didn't have to look at her; I could sense her apprehension was equal to mine as well.

The whole sighting took about 15 minutes total.

After nothing more appeared. We stopped watching the skies and went for a walk. Our only mutual comment was "Huh?"

Just a note: When I thought of taking a picture with my cell phone the object seem to purposefully go out of range, then would come back, like it was taunting me. I gave up trying to catch a shot. »


Indian army seeks to identify Ladhak UFOs

One hundred UFOs were sighted by the Indo-Tibetan Border Police (ITPB) in the Ladakh region of Jammu and Kashmir between August 1 and October 15 this year, throwing the Indian army into turmoil.

The objects in question do not correspond to any known aircraft. They are very bright and give off a glow day and night. They are undetectable by radar and can only be observed only visually. The Indian Army has unsuccessfully deployed a mobile ground-based radar unit and a spectrum analyzer. Teams of scientists dispatched on site confirmed the phenomenon without being able to discern it.

Rising up on the horizon from the Chinese side, the Indian Army has concluded that the UFOs were manufactured in China using new technology. But the main question is: to what purpose?

It looked like a UFO.

Dan Aykroyd house haunted by the ghost of Cass Elliot?

Is the house of Dan Aykroyd haunted? It’s possible. In fact, actor, known for these roles in movie as The Blues Brothers and Ghostbusters, is convinced that a mysterious ghost lived in his home.

More precisely, he believed that his home is haunted by the ghost of Cass Elliot (the former owner), singer of the famous Californian band, The Mamas & The Papas.

“A ghost certainly haunts my house. It once even crawled into bed with me. The ghost also turns on the Stairmaster and moves jewelry across the dresser. I’m sure it’s Mama Cass because you get the feeling it’s a big ghost.”


Matthew McConaughey and his experience with a ghost

Matthew David McConaughey is a famous American actor. As many people, the artist has lived a paranormal experience when he was younger.

According to him, the ghost haunted his mansion and he was called “Madame Blue”. He described this appearance during an interview with AskMen :

“When I first moved in, I had a tent and I put it up on the floor of the upstairs bedroom with my sleeping bag and my dog. That’s when I first saw Madame Blue. The first night I’m hearing noises, I’m hearing bass sounds, wood moving, and coyotes…

So, I get up out of the tent with my dog Miss Hud, and I’m running around buck naked and I’ve got a bat so I’m gonna go and investigate. I go downstairs and there’s nothing there. I now know it was here because I have seen her since. She has no qualms with me. She’s a cool ghost. Maybe me being nude all the time is why we get along!”
