The transmission occurred on 26 Nov 1977 at 5:12 p.m. when a strange unknown voice overrode, took over, or super-modulated the TV signals from five transmitters that were monitored by the Independent Broadcasting Authority (IBA) in England. IBA did not detect the intrusion. The 5+1/2-minute message overrode a scheduled newscast read by Ivor Mills on Southern ITV, England, and was heard by listeners as far away as Andover, London, Newbury, Oxford, Reading, Southhampton, and Winchester.

Some of you may find the interruption a bit annoying and hard to listen to, Sorry about that and i did consider just doing the Transcript but thought it would be unfair to your Judgement of the Incident, Hope you enjoy the rest of the video and please check back in the Future. Any questions, Just ask!

“I have discovered the secrets of the pyramids, and have found
out how the Egyptians and the ancient builders in Peru, Yucatan, and Asia, with only primitive tools, raised and set in place blocks of stone weighing many tons!”
- Edward Leedskalnin
Often equated with the engineering feats of Stonehenge and the Great Pyramid of Egypt, Coral Castle was built by reclusive eccentric Edward Leedskalnin, who single-handledly erected gigantic quarried stones resulting in his enigmatic castle. Originally located in the tiny town of Florida City in the l920′s, the site was later moved to it’s current location just south of Miami, Florida. Ed is said to have built the Castle for his “sweet 16″ supposedly, a woman from his native Latvia who had promised to marry him and then changed her mind at the last minute. Sweet Sixteen is actually a sheilded allusion to his discovery–the ability to redirect the forces of gravity using earths’ magnetics, utilizing uncanny knowledge of hyperdimensional physics.

A feast of coral imagery, the site lies behind massive 8′ high coral rock walls on a ten-acre tract, protecting it from the sprawling suburban city of Homestead. The coral walls fit together with amazing accuracy even though they were constructed without cement. These technical accomplishments have astounded engineers and scientists.
A small statured man barely weighing one hundred pounds, Ed quarried one piece of coral from the earth weighing over twenty-eight tons and then erected it himself! His accomplishments include a rocking chair weighing thousands of pounds that can be rocked with a finger, and an underground structure reached by climbing down a one-piece spiral stone staircase to a subterranean refrigerator. A five thousand pound heart-shaped coral rock table with a red blooming ixora growing from its center, is believed to be the world’s largest valentine according to Ripley’s. Ed liked to read and would sit in a group 


of stone chairs which caught the morning, afternoon, and evening light as the sun traveled over the horizon. There’s a table fashioned from solid rock in the image of the State of Florida complete with a water basin at the position of Lake Okeechobee. Ed reckoned the governor could sit here and figure out how to raise taxes.
Much of the site is calibrated to celestial alignments including an ingenious thirty ton telescope towering twenty-five feet above the complex, perfectly aligned to the North Star. A working sundial calibrated to noon of the Winter and Summer Solstice, is so accurate it tells time within two minutes.
Energy sensitive people will often report headaches while standing inside the archway of the nine-ton swinging gate, thought to be erected over a vortex. This was the case when I visited in the early 1990s, dowsing the site during and after a full solar eclipse. Locating key point


s (ie. 9-Ton Gate, etc.), I found telluric energy literally disappear during the passage, later returning to normal, as my signal showed. Did Ed place his Castle over a convergence of key “energy leys” in order to harness the electromagnetic signature of the land– an invisible web of energy concentrated at points of telluric power, the convergence of which create unusual phenomena, anti-gravity?

The original site remained in Florida City until the mid l930′s at which time, the story goes, someone planned to build a sub-division nearby. A fanatic for privacy, Ed packed up his entire quarry and moved it to the present location in Homestead. No one ever saw him load or unload the massive tonnage from a friend’s truck he’d enlisted to transport the gigantic stones. The relocation progressed easily, and the entire complex was re-erected at its new location. In total Ed quarried over eleven hundred tons of coral rock for his Castle using tools fashioned from wrecking-yard junk, never revealing just how he managed to rise and position the massive coral blocks that make up his compound. An air of mystery surrounded the two story monolith known as the tower, which housed his workshop and living quarters. He was secretive and almost always worked at night; no one ever saw him.
Ed seemed to have a sixth sense with which he could detect when he was being watched, often the hallmark of an intuitive. Ed stated, “if I concentrate on somebody’s back while that person doesn’t know it, they’re liable to get restless and look around. I’ve noticed, I can chase the mosquitos away with this same, concentrated, look.”
Ed disputed contempory science and believed, “all matter consists of magnets which can produce measurable phenomena, and electricity.” Ed would say he had “re-discovered the laws of weight, measurement, and leverage,” and that these concepts “involved the relationship of the Earth to celestial alignments.” He claimed to see beads of light which he believed to be the physical presence of nature’s magnetism, and life force, or what we term today chi

One of Juno's sensors, a special kind of camera optimized to track faint stars, also had a unique view of the Earth-moon system. The result was an intriguing, low-resolution glimpse of what our world would look like to a visitor from afar.

The cameras that took the images for the movie are located near the pointed tip of one of the spacecraft's three solar-array arms. They are part of Juno's Magnetic Field Investigation (MAG) and are normally used to determine the orientation of the magnetic sensors. These cameras look away from the sunlit side of the solar array, so as the spacecraft approached, the system's four cameras pointed toward Earth. Earth and the moon came into view when Juno was about 600,000 miles (966,000 kilometers) away -- about three times the Earth-moon separation.

During the flyby, timing was everything. Juno was traveling about twice as fast as a typical satellite, and the spacecraft itself was spinning at 2 rpm. To assemble a movie that wouldn't make viewers dizzy, the star tracker had to capture a frame each time the camera was facing Earth at exactly the right instant. The frames were sent to Earth, where they were processed into video format.8109169061?profile=original

NASA New Horizons mission Update,
After careful consideration and analysis, the Hubble Space Telescope Time Allocation Committee has recommended using Hubble to search for an object the Pluto-bound NASA New Horizons mission could visit after its flyby of Pluto in July 2015.
The planned search will involve targeting a small area of sky in search of a Kuiper Belt object (KBO) for the outbound spacecraft to visit. The Kuiper Belt is a vast debris field of icy bodies left over from the solar system's formation 4.6 billion years ago. A KBO has never been seen up close because the belt is so far from the sun, stretching out to a distance of 5 billion miles into a never-before-visited frontier of the solar system.
"I am pleased that our science peer-review process arrived at a consensus as to how to effectively use Hubble's unique capabilities to support the science goals of the New Horizons mission," said Matt Mountain, director of the Space Telescope Science Institute (STScI) in Baltimore, Maryland.
Fully carrying out the KBO search is contingent on the results from a pilot observation using Hubble data.
The space telescope will scan an area of sky in the direction of the constellation Sagittarius to try and identify any objects orbiting within the Kuiper Belt. To discriminate between a foreground KBO and the clutter of background stars in Sagittarius, the telescope will turn at the predicted rate that KBOs are moving against the background stars. In the resulting images, the stars will be streaked, but any KBOs should appear as pinpoint objects.
If the test observation identifies at least two KBOs of a specified brightness it will demonstrate statistically that Hubble has a chance of finding an appropriate KBO for New Horizons to visit. At that point, an additional allotment of observing time will continue the search across a field of view roughly the angular size of the full moon.
Astronomers around the world apply for observing time on the Hubble Space Telescope. Competition for time on the telescope is extremely intense and the requested observing time significantly exceeds the observing time available in a given year. Proposals must address significant astronomical questions that can only be addressed with Hubble's unique capabilities, and are beyond the capabilities of ground-based telescopes. The proposals are peer reviewed annually by an expert committee, which looks for the best possible science that can be conducted by Hubble and recommends to the Space Telescope Science Institute director a balanced program of small, medium, and large investigations.
Though Hubble is powerful enough to see galaxies near the horizon of the universe, finding a KBO is a challenging needle-in-haystack search. A typical KBO along the New Horizons trajectory may be no larger than Manhattan Island and as black as charcoal.
Even before the launch of New Horizons in 2006, Hubble has provided consistent support for this edge-of-the-solar system mission. Hubble was used to discover four small moons orbiting Pluto and its binary companion object Charon, providing new targets to enhance the mission's scientific return. And Hubble has provided the most sensitive search yet for potentially hazardous dust rings around the Pluto. Hubble also has made a detailed map of the dwarf planet's surface, which astronomers are using to plan New Horizon's close-up reconnaissance photos.
In addition to Pluto exploration, recent Hubble solar system observations have discovered a new satellite around Neptune, probed the magnetospheres of the gas-giant planets, found circumstantial evidence for oceans on Europa, and uncovered several bizarre cases of asteroids disintegrating before our eyes. Hubble has supported numerous NASA Mars missions by monitoring the Red Planet's seasonal atmospheric changes. Hubble has made complementary observations in support of the Dawn asteroid mission, and comet flybys. In July 1994, Hubble documented the never-before-seen string of comet collisions with Jupiter that resulted from the tidal breakup of comet Shoemaker-Levy 9.
"The planned search for a suitable target for New Horizons further demonstrates how Hubble is effectively being used to support humankind's initial reconnaissance of the solar system," said Mountain. "Likewise, it is also a preview of how the powerful capabilities of the upcoming James Webb Space Telescope will further bolster planetary science. We are excited by the potential of both observatories for ongoing solar system exploration and discovery."
New Horizons should perform a flyby of the Pluto system on 14 July 2015.

The Antikythera mechanism is an ancient analog computer designed to predict astronomical positions and eclipses. It was recovered in 1900--01 from the Antikythera wreck, a shipwreck off the Greek island of Antikythera. The computer's construction has been attributed to the Greeks and dated to the early 1st century BC. Technological artifacts approaching its complexity and workmanship did not appear again until the 14th century, when mechanical astronomical clocks began to be built in Western Europe.

The mechanism was housed in a wooden box about 340 × 180 × 90 mm in size and comprised 30 bronze gears (although more could have been lost). The largest gear, clearly visible in fragment A, was about 140 mm in diameter and had 223 teeth. The mechanism's remains were found as 82 separate fragments of which only seven contain any gears or significant inscriptions.

Today, the fragments of the Antikythera mechanism are kept at the National Archaeological Museum of Athens.

Zecharia Sitchin predicts the 2012 Phenomenon in this Video and even goes on to say he would be Directly Associated with it..
Putting Things Straight in his own way.

One of the few scholars able to read and interpret ancient Sumerian and Akkadian clay tablets, Zecharia Sitchin (1920-2010) based his bestselling The 12th Planet on texts from the ancient civilizations of the Near East. Drawing both widespread interest and criticism, his controversial theories on the Anunnaki origins of humanity have been translated into more than 20 languages and featured on radio and television programs around the world.

In Memory:
Zecharia Sitchin
July 11, 1920 - October 9, 2010


Our teacher, our mentor.
You have opened before us the door of history,
reconnecting us to our ancient past.

You have given us a great foundation
in knowing what was.

We wish to thank you for your dedicated research
and commitment in educating us with this knowledge.

Just as Zecharia in Hebrew means "Remembered by God",
we too will remember what you have taught us
and will share this knowledge with others.

You are truly a ray of light that has touched us all!

-- With sincere admiration, Students of the Sitchin Certification Seminar --

A little after midnight Eastern time on Friday, those with clear skies saw an amber "honey moon" low on the horizon.

What makes a honey moon?

1. The moon is full. This happens once a month — or, really, every 29.53 days.

2. The moon is the shortest distance in its orbit from the Earth. This happens every June.

To the superstitious among us, the honey moon was extra spooky this year.

Why? It fell on Friday the 13th.
We haven't seen a honey moon on Friday the 13th since June 1919. That's the year the Treaty of Versailles was signed.

We won't see another until June 13, 2098. There will probably be flying cars by then.

Friday the 13th, of course, is considered unlucky — even though the number-crunchers over at Vox determined there's not much difference between Friday the 13th and any other day of the year. (Though, technically, Vox did not look at Fridays the 13th that coincide with honey moons, as there have been relatively few of these in recorded human history. Perhaps, if such a study could be done, it would show these Fridays were or are or will be unlucky in some unspecified way. Such things are beyond even Nate Silver.)

So enjoy the honey moon, or fear it.

General relativity, or the general theory of relativity, is the geometric theory of gravitation published by Albert Einstein in 1916 and the current description of gravitation in modern physics. General relativity generalizes special relativity and Newton's law of universal gravitation, providing a unified description of gravity as a geometric property of space and time, or spacetime. In particular, the curvature of spacetime is directly related to the energy and momentum of whatever matter and radiation are present. The relation is specified by the Einstein field equations, a system of partial differential equations


Some predictions of general relativity differ significantly from those of classical physics, especially concerning the passage of time, the geometry of space, the motion of bodies in free fall, and the propagation of light. Examples of such differences include gravitational time dilation, gravitational lensing, the gravitational redshift of light, and the gravitational time delay. The predictions of general relativity have been confirmed in all observations and experiments to date. Although general relativity is not the only relativistic theory of gravity, it is the simplest theory that is consistent with experimental data. However, unanswered questions remain, the most fundamental being how general relativity can be reconciled with the laws of quantum physics to produce a complete and self-consistent theory of quantum gravity.

Einstein's theory has important astrophysical implications. For example, it implies the existence of black holes—regions of space in which space and time are distorted in such a way that nothing, not even light, can esca


pe—as an end-state for massive stars. There is ample evidence that the intense radiation emitted by certain kinds of astronomical objects is due to black holes; for example, microquasars and active galactic nuclei result from the presence of stellar black holes and black holes of a much more massive type, respectively. The bending of light by gravity can lead to the phenomenon of gravitational lensing, in which multiple images of the same distant astronomical object are visib

le in the sky. General relativity also predicts the existence of gravitational waves, which have since been observed indirectly; a direct measurement is the aim of projects such as LIGO and NASA/ESA Laser Interferometer Space Antenna and various pulsar timing arrays. In addition, general relativity is the basis of current cosmological models of a consistently expanding univers

The Higgs boson or Higgs particle is an elementary particle initially theorised in 1964, whose discovery was announced at CERN on 4 July 2012. The discovery has been called "monumental" because it appears to confirm the existence of the Higgs field, which is pivotal to the Standard Model and other theories within particle physics. It would explain why some fundamental particles have mass when the symmetries controlling their interactions should require them to be massless, and why the weak force has a much shorter range than the electromagnetic force. The discovery of a Higgs boson should allow physicists to finally validate the last untested area of the Standard Model's approach to fundamental particles and forces, guide other theories and discoveries in particle physics, and potentially lead to developments in "new" physics.

This unanswered question in fundamental physics is of such importance that it led to a search of more than 40 years for the Higgs boson and finally the construction of one of the world's most expensive and complex experimental facilities to date, the Large Hadron Collider, able to create Higgs bosons and other particles for observation and study. On 4 July 2012, it was announced that a previously unknown particle with a mass between 125 and 127 GeV/c2 (134.2 and 136.3 amu) had been detected; physicists suspected at the time that it was the Higgs boson. By March 2013, the particle had been proven to behave, interact and decay in many of the ways predicted by the Standard Model, and was also tentatively confirmed to have positive parity and zero spin, two fundamental attributes of a Higgs boson. This appears to be the first elementary scalar particle discovered in nature. More data is needed to know if the discovered particle exactly matches the predictions of the Standard Model, or whether, as predicted by some theories, multiple Higgs bosons exist.

The Higgs boson is named after Peter Higgs, one of six physicists who, in 1964, proposed the mechanism that suggested the existence of such a particle. Although Higgs's name has come to be associated with this theory, several researchers between about 1960 and 1972 each independently developed different parts of it. In mainstream media the Higgs boson has often been called the "God particle", from a 1993 book on the topic; the nickname is strongly disliked by many physicists, including Higgs, who regard it as inappropriate sensationalism. In 2013 two of the original researchers, Peter Higgs and François Englert, were awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics for their work and prediction Englert's co-researcher Robert Brout had died in 2011, and except in unusual circumstances, the Nobel is not given posthumously.

In the Standard Model, the Higgs particle is a boson with no spin, electric charge, or color charge. It is also very unstable, decaying into other particles almost immediately. It is a quantum excitation of one of the four components of the Higgs field. The latter constitutes a scalar field, with two neutral and two electrically charged components, and forms a complex doublet of the weak isospin SU symmetry. The field has a "Mexican hat" shaped potential with nonzero strength everywhere (including otherwise empty space) which in its vacuum state breaks the weak isospin symmetry of the electroweak interaction. When this happens, three components of the Higgs field are "absorbed" by the SU and U gauge bosons (the "Higgs mechanism") to become the longitudinal components of the now-massive W and Z bosons of the weak force. The remaining electrically neutral component separately couples to other particles known as fermions (via Yukawa couplings), causing these to acquire mass as well. Some versions of the theory predict more than one kind of Higgs fields and bosons. Alternative "Higgsless" models would have been considered if the Higgs boson were not discovered.

Space shuttle Atlantis and its crew of seven astronauts ended an 11-day journey of nearly 4.5 million miles with a Perfect landing at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida.

The mission, designated STS-129, included three spacewalks and the installation of two platforms to the International Space Station's truss, or backbone. The platforms hold large spare parts to sustain station operations after the shuttles are retired. The shuttle crew delivered about 30,000 pounds of replacement parts for systems that provide power to the station, keep it from overheating, and maintain a proper orientation in space.
The Space Shuttle Atlantis (Orbiter Vehicle Designation: OV‑104) was a Space Shuttle orbiter belonging to the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), the spaceflight and space exploration agency of the United States. Atlantis was the fourth operational (and the next-to-the-last) Space Shuttle to be constructed by the Rockwell International company in Southern California, and it was delivered to the John F. Kennedy Space Center in eastern Florida in April 1985. Atlantis was the only orbiter which lacked the ability to draw power from the International Space Station while docked there; it had to continue to provide its own power through fuel cells.

The last mission of Atlantis was STS-135, the last flight of the Shuttle program. This final flight, authorized in October 2010, brought additional supplies to the International Space Station and took advantage of the processing performed for the Launch on Need mission, which would only have been flown if Endeavour's STS-134 crew required rescue. Atlantis launched for the last time on 8 July 2011 at 16:29 UTC, landing at the John F. Kennedy Space Center on 21 July 2011 at 09:57 UTC.

By the end of its final mission, Atlantis had orbited the Earth 4,848 times, traveling nearly 126,000,000 mi (203,000,000 km) or more than 525 times the distance from the Earth to the Moon.

Atlantis was named after RV Atlantis, a two-masted sailing ship that operated as the primary research vessel for the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution from 1930 to 1966

1 of 6 - In 1905, Albert Einstein published the theory of special relativity, which explains how to interpret motion between different inertial frames of reference — that is, places that are moving at constant speeds relative to each other.

Einstein explained that when two objects are moving at a constant speed as the relative motion between the two objects, instead of appealing to the ether as an absolute frame of reference that defined what was going on. If you and some astronaut, Amber, are moving in different spaceships and want to compare your observations, all that matters is how fast you and Amber are moving with respect to each other.

El Niño is a band of anomalously warm ocean water temperatures that periodically develops off the Pacific coast of South America. Extreme climate change pattern oscillations fluctuate weather across the Pacific Ocean which results in fluctuating droughts, floods, and crop yields in varying regions of the world.

There is a phase of 'El Niño--Southern Oscillation' (ENSO), which refers to variations in the temperature of the surface of the tropical eastern Pacific Ocean (El Niño and La Niña) and in air surface pressure in the tropical western Pacific. The two variations are coupled: the warm oceanic phase, El Niño, accompanies high air surface pressure in the western Pacific, while the cold phase, La Niña, accompanies low air surface pressure in the western Pacific. Mechanisms that cause the oscillation remain under study.

Developing countries dependent upon agriculture and fishing, particularly those bordering the Pacific Ocean, are the most affected. El niño is Spanish for "the boy", and the capitalized term El Niño refers to the Christ child, Jesus, because periodic warming in the Pacific near South America is usually noticed around Christmas.
Most tropical cyclones form on the side of the subtropical ridge closer to the equator, then move poleward past the ridge axis before recurving into the main belt of the Westerlies. When the subtropical ridge position shifts due to El Niño, so will the preferred tropical cyclone tracks. Areas west of Japan and Korea tend to experience much fewer September--November tropical cyclone impacts during El Niño and neutral years. During El Niño years, the break in the subtropical ridge tends to lie near 130°E, which would favor the Japanese archipelago. During El Niño years, Guam's chance of a tropical cyclone impact is one-third of the long-term average. The tropical Atlantic ocean experiences depressed activity due to increased vertical wind shear across the region during El Niño years. On the flip side, however, the tropical Pacific Ocean east of the dateline has above-normal activity during El Niño years due to water temperatures well above average and decreased windshear. Most of the recorded East Pacific category 5 hurricanes occur during El Niño years in clusters.8109151658?profile=original

West Michigan's infamous brush with the unknown isn't fading into the past anytime soon.

In March 1994, UFOs were reported speeding along the shoreline, leaving police and witnesses scratching their heads in wonder. The phenomenon was even caught on National Weather Service radar and recorded on a call to a 911 operator.


Now, 20 years after the headlines have faded, the phenomenon is once again about to be thrust into the national spotlight.

This fall, the sighting -- witnessed by residents in Muskegon and Ottawa counties -- will be the topic of UFO Hunters, a History Channel series that gives extraterrestrial encounters a primetime TV treatment.
The show's stated mission: Separate "fact from fallacy."

There's no denying the fact that something strange, even extraordinary, happened in West Michigan that cold spring night.

And Kevin Barry, who's producing the episode, is confident the public is still hungry for details.

"Everybody loves the idea of investigating UFOs," said Barry, a Michigan native who graduated from Wayne State University with a master's degree in film. "It subverts everything (people) have been taught and everything we believe."

Some witnesses aren't sure what to believe about the lights they saw hovering in the sky.

As he sat in front of Holland High School ready to be interviewed by Barry and his crew, Lee Lamberts seemed both mystified and passive.

Lamberts, who covers sports for the Holland Sentinel, isn't forgetting the glowing object he saw near the school. But he's not wracking his brain for answers, either.

"If I'm driving home late at night from the school I look up at the sky thinking I might see something again," he said as he pointed to where he saw the UFO. "Some people think I'm making this up because I'm kind of a jokester, but this is all true."

Barry doesn't doubt Lambert's recollection.

"I believe most of these stories, that people saw something," he said. "They aren't saying they saw little green men, 


But they did see something."

Saw something.

Ever since a UFO crashed in the New Mexico desert in 1947, countless numbers of Americans have uttered the same words.

It's a topic that stirs passions, raises troubling questions and piques the curiosity of millions of Americans.

So it's easy to be skeptical. UFO sightings are often associated with the most sensational media organizations, making Barry's work all the more difficult.

But he chose Holland for a reason.

The witnesses were regular people, not UFO enthusiasts, and they all reported seeing the same thing -- a glowing circular object.

And then there's the 911 recording of the conversation between a National Weather Service Operator at Muskegon County Airport and an Ottawa County dispatcher.

The conversation -- which at one point features the weather service operator saying, "I've never seen anything like this" -- was obtained by former Muskegon Chronicle reporter Michael G. Walsh using Michigan's Freedom of Information Act.

Before he heard the tapes, Walsh was skeptical too. A quick listen changed his mind.

"You could hear it in their voices, they were mystified, they were concerned," said Walsh, now a Muskegon attorney. "I said, 'My God, this is a story.' "8109155273?profile=original

He was right.

In the following week, the story was covered by major television and radio news networks as well as talk show hosts, including Larry King Live.

"Being the object of the stories was unusual," said Walsh, who wrote a series of stories on the sighting. "Here I am and my claim to fame are the UFOs."

The unexplainable phenomenon has brought other witnesses their 15 minutes of fame, too.

Cindy Pravda, who spotted the UFOs from the window of her Grand Haven Township home, was interviewed by the UFO Hunters last weekend.

The sighting didn't startle Pravda. If anything, the sight of four bright lights silently hovering above the tree line was hypnotic. She watched the object for nearly a half hour.

"I saw my horse, and she was just sitting in the backyard sleeping," Pravda said. "I thought if nothing bothered her, what do I need to worry about."

The chance to tell her story to the History channel "totally amazes" Pravda.

"I'm like a little piece of the puzzle."
