Object burns up over Dillon Montana U.S. (Video)

Published on 23 Jan 2014 By TheLifebeyondearth
DILLON, Mont. -
A Dillon resident saw a huge fireball in the sky, just before 8 a.m Tuesday. Ruth Jackson of Dillon spoke to NBC Montana over the phone and says she had no idea what she was looking at, so she pulled over to take a photo.
"We were driving east on Helena St. in Dillon and the sun hadn't come up yet but there was this bright thing in the sky and I said to my husband, 'What is that?'" said Jackson.
She was a passenger in the car along with her husband and two granddaughters. They were on their way to drop the girls off at school when they stopped to take the picture.
"I am always looking for something to take a picture of, but this was just awesome," said Jackson.

We showed the photos to the MSU Space Grant Consortium and met with Director Angela Des Jardins. She tells us what they appear to be at first glance.
"When I saw it first, the first thing that came to mind is something was falling through the air that was on fire," said Des Jardins.
Des Jardins tells us with so little information it is hard to pinpoint what exactly this could be, but she did rule out a few possibilities.
"You can put to rest that there is any aliens or anything like that, and I am not the biggest expert on meteors but I think you can probably safely say it was not a meteor," said Des Jardins.
The Montana Space Grant Consortium gets photos from people across the state on a regular basis. However Des Jardins tells us these photos are unlike anything she has seen so far.
"I can see why this is capturing people's imagination and why they really wanted to take pictures of it because that is pretty rare," said Des Jardins.

Largest UFO conference in the world returning to Arizona this February


The International UFO Congress, presented by Open Minds Production, is the largest annual conference on UFOs and extraterrestrial life in the world. The conference will be held at the Fort McDowell Resort and Casino in Fountain Hills, Arizona, February 12th – 16, 2014.
The event features more than 20 speakers and wide variety of exhibitors from around the country, and covers a varying degree of topics related to the UFO phenomenon including sightings, technology, government cover-ups, exopolitics, black projects, crop circles, alien visitation, space, and more.

This conference isn’t just for UFO and space enthusiasts; everyone is encouraged to come hear from these seasoned professionals on what might be one of the greatest mysteries of our time.
The diverse and still growing line-up includes Richard Hoover, a former NASA Astrobiologist, George Noory, host of the nationally syndicated radio show Coast to Coast AM, Aaron Sagers, journalist and host of the Travel Channel series Paranormal Paparazzi, as well as Dr. John Alexander, a retired colonel and non-lethal weapons specialist.

Panel presentations on Government Cover-Up , Science and the Search for Extraterrestrial Life, and Alien Abduction will feature authors, researchers, experiencers and TV personalities and provide the audience a chance to interact with speakers and ask the pertinent questions.
“We’ve got a very diverse line-up this year,” conference co-organizer Maureen Elsberry says, “we’ve pulled in speakers and events that will interest the general public as well as UFO and space enthusiasts. The UFO phenomenon is considered one of the great mysteries of our time and by delving deep in the subject maybe one day we will have some answers.”

Another special event will be a night vision skywatch on Friday, February 14th, led by Ben Hansen, the lead investigator from the popular SyFy show Fact or Faked. Night Optics USA, a Bushnell company, will be providing some of their latest military-grade technology for the watch. Night Vision Ops will also have a booth in the vendor room.

The event will also feature the Meet the Speakers cocktail party, the EBE Film Festival Awards Banquet, a performance by local musicians the Austen Mack Quartet, as well as special exclusive premieres of new extraterrestrial shows from the Discovery Network.
Conference admission will be sold in packages for those many guests who make a week of the event, along with à la carte options available for those who just want to check it out for an afternoon. Arizona students will receive a 40% discount when they present a valid student ID at the door. The vendor room, film festival, and skywatch are free and open to the public.

UFO TV: Ancient Mystery of the Carpathian Sphinx / NIBIRU III - Return of the Gods

Ancient Mystery of the Carpathian Sphinx
Now presenting fascinating new theories and discoveries about the missing link of human evolution and the soul of man, as we explore the Ancient Mystery of the Carpathian Sphinx and evidence of an intervening leap in human evolution that occurred deep in our ancient past. Featuring Dr. Robert Schoch and filmmaker Oana Ghiocel. 

NIBIRU III - Return of the Gods

Despite the failed Mayan Calendar prophecies of 2012, there is an unseen infrared planet still inexorably approaching our solar system. Recent astounding Vatican revelations suggest high-level church officials are preparing for the arrival of a highly advanced extraterrestrial race. This may mark the return of the fabled "Annunaki" from "Nibiru," also referred to as Planet-X. 

Google Images Reveal Triangular Moon Mystery: Could It Be An ET Colony?

Pictured is a composite Google Moon image of (left) the region on the far side of the moon known as Mare Moscoviense; (center) an unusual triangular-shaped object located near the bottom-left portion of Mare Moscoviense; and (right) a close-up of the object, showing what appear to be seven lights in symmetrical formation on the object. | Google Earth

Are extraterrestrials using the moon to watch us from hidden bases?
One might jump to that conclusion after looking at an image (seen above) spotted by YouTube poster wowforreeel. Using Google Moon imagery, wowforreeel scanned the far side of our celestial neighbor and reported seeing and capturing the image of what appears to be a huge V-shaped or triangular object that has two rows of seven lights.
At first glance, it certainly appears a bit too symmetrical for a natural object. Some Internet sites have speculated that this might be either an alien spaceship, a base used by aliens from which to study Earth, or that it could even be a top secret moonbase created by humans.
The unusual object -- photographed by NASA's Clementine spacecraft, launched in 1994 -- measures approximately 500 feet x 420 feet, and is located near the region known as Mare Moscoviense. Using the actual Google Moon coordinates of the object -- 22º42'38.46"N and 142º34'44.52"E -- Huffington Post checked it out for ourselves. Once we arrived at the exact location, we decided to spread out and see if there were any other similar objects nearby.
Here's what we found:

In the image above, at the far left is the original object that can be seen in the Mare Moscoviense region on the far side of the moon. It's the same object shown in the composite image at the top of this story.
The other objects here were found by HuffPost while maneuvering around the moon's surface with the Google Moon viewer. While not as perfectly symmetrical as the original object's seven lights, these others are, nonetheless, as intriguing to look at.
So, what exactly are we seeing here?
"I would suspect, from looking at it that [the original] object is a stitching artifact from Google Moon," said Marc Dantonio, chief photo and video analyst for the Mutual UFO Network.
"A stitching artifact is a photographic anomaly that occurs due to the process by which many photos are aligned and put together to make a large photo mosaic. Google Moon, Google Earth, Google Mars, as well as Google Sky, for that matter, are all composed of tens of thousands of images that are aligned as best as possible with each other and draped over a spherical 'planet,' be it Earth or the moon, for instance," Dantonio told HuffPost via email.
Dantonio owns a special effects company that often creates imagery and models for the U.S. military forces. He explained how the Google Moon software "must make choices as to how it will deal with different lighting, angle and exposure. Further, sometimes the imagery are taken with entirely different spacecraft, and the images have to be scaled or mathematically projected to match the imagery not easily attainable from other sources."
He concludes that artifacts often result when the software can't perfectly match the image.

HuffPost also reached out to former FBI Special Agent Ben Hansen, the lead investigator of the Syfy Channel's popular "Fact or Faked: Paranormal Files."
"The photos are very intriguing," Hansen told HuffPost in an email. "When you really get into the moonbase conspiracy, you learn that much of it is actually based on historical fact. The U.S. has had legitimate plans to build a military base on the moon as far back as 1959, when it proposed a venture they dubbed 'Project Horizon.'
"Many photos, allegedly coming from backyard astronomers or leaked NASA photos, have turned up suspicious-looking images depicting buildings and spacecraft on the moon. The biggest problem we face -- as is the case with these current photos -- is authenticating the images as raw and unaltered. Google Earth obtains their lunar imagery through public domain sources. They don't have their own satellites flying around the backside of the moon to take pictures.
"Is it possible someone might add data to an image depicting buildings and UFOs as a joke? If the raw images from NASA contain the same anomalies, we may be on to something," said Hansen.
Let's give the final word on all this speculation to the Brookings Institution, one of the most highly respected think tanks in Washington, D.C. In 1960, Brookings prepared a report for NASA, titled "Proposed Studies on the Implications of Peaceful Space Activities for Human Affairs."
Page 30 of the report discusses the implications of the potential discovery of extraterrestrial life:
Though intelligent or semi-intelligent life conceivably exists elsewhere in our solar system, if intelligent extraterrestrial life is discovered in the next 20 years, it will very probably be by radio telescope from other solar systems. Evidence of its existence might also be found in artifacts left on the moon or other planets.
The consequences for attitudes and values are unpredictable, but would vary profoundly in different cultures and between groups within complex societies; a crucial factor would be the nature of the communication between us and the other beings. Whether or not Earth would be inspired to an all-out space effort by such a discovery is moot: societies sure of their own place in the universe have disintegrated when confronted by a superior society, and others have survived, even though changed.

'Silver Screen Saucers' book due Sept. 2014

Silver Screen Saucers: Sorting Fact from Fantasy in Hollywood's UFO Movies has been scheduled for publication in September 2014 by White Crow Books.

More so than any other medium, cinema has shaped our expectations of potential alien life and visitation. From The Day the Earth Stood Still and Close Encounters of the Third Kind, to Battleship, Prometheus and beyond, our hopes and fears of alien contact have been fuelled by the silver screen. But what messages does Hollywood impart to us about our possible otherworldly neighbours, from where do UFO movies draw their inspiration, and what other factors – cultural or conspiratorial – might influence their production and content? Silver Screen Saucers is a timely and revealing examination of the interplay between Hollywood’s UFO movies and the UFO phenomenon itself, from 1950 to present day.
The book grants the reader a rare, close-up examination of the DNA that builds our perceptions of the UFO mystery: one strand of this DNA weaves real events, stories and people from the historical record of UFOlogy, while the other spins and twists with the film and TV products they have inspired. With our alien dreams and nightmares now more fully visualized onscreen than ever before, Silver Screen Saucers asks the question: what does it all mean? Are all UFO stories just fever dreams from LA screenwriters, or are they based in something else? Could any of them be real and are they part of a bigger message?
From interviews with screenwriters and directors whose visions have been shaped by their lifelong UFO obsessions; to Presidents Carter and Reagan talking aliens with Spielberg at the White House; to CIA and Pentagon manipulation of UFO-themed productions; to movie stars and producers being stalked by real Men in Black, Silver Screen Saucers provides fresh perspective on the frequently debated but little understood subject of UFOs & Hollywood.
The book addresses questions such as:
Does Hollywood fuel the UFO mythos, or vice versa? In other words, are our beliefs about alien visitation shaped by UFO movies, or are UFO movies shaped by our beliefs about alien visitation?
Do Hollywood’s UFO movies fictionalize the UFO phenomenon in the public mind, actualize it, or both?
If and when humanity makes full and open contact with an unearthly intelligence, would we, as cinemagoers, be able to divorce Hollywood’s historical imaginings from the reality with which we are presented? Indeed...
Should we? After all, a great deal of Hollywood’s UFO movie content has been closely informed by supposedly factual UFOlogical literature, events and debates. Perhaps, then, there is more truth to be found in Hollywood’s UFO movies than we might imagine – which raises the question:
Just how has so much dense UFOlogical theory (by its very nature ‘fringe’ and subcultural) managed find its way into Hollywood’s populist science fiction narratives? Is Hollywood’s incorporation of UFO lore attributable to a “Hollywood UFO conspiracy” designed to acclimate us to a UFO/alien reality, or is it merely the result of a natural cultural process?
Silver Screen Saucersis bursting with ideas and information that will excite and intrigue any reader with a passing or serious interest in UFOs and/or science-fiction cinema.

The Gipper’s UFO

By Micah Hanks

There have been a lot of UFO stories associated with U.S. Presidents over the years… well, not that many, but the ones that do surface every few decades are usually of good substance (with the exception maybe of Ike Eisenhower’s alleged romps with extraterrestrials, said to have been covered up and explained instead as a visit to the dentistry offices of Dr. Francis Purcell).
Jimmy Carter’s story was pretty good, which involved a sighting of an unusual object he and a group of men claimed to see while attending a Lions Club meeting shortly before his tenure as governor of Georgia. However, aside from observing a light that changed colors and appeared to move closer as he and his company observed it, little else could be said of the strange light, which he wouldn’t officially report until during his term as governor.
Gerald Ford also talked about UFOs, though mostly on behalf of his constituents. JFK had made a vague reference to “unknowns” in a memorandum written to James Webb, regarding the proposition of a joint-U.S.-Soviet space operation. But perhaps no one would have quite so extraordinary a connection with UFOs, and also go on to serve the office of POTUS, as actor-turned President Ronald Reagan, “The Gipper”, whose encounter still stands out among reports of exotic aerial phenomenon. The details of Reagan’s UFO encounter were apparently unintentionally released to a reporter with The Wall Street Journal shortly after the sighting took place, when Reagan described for Norman Miller a “white light” he and his company aboard then-governor Reagan’s private Cessna had seen. However, what is arguably the best description of the encounter was afforded by the pilot at the time, Bill Paynter, who described it thusly:
We were flying a Cessna Citation. It was maybe nine or ten o’clock at night. We were near Bakersfield when Governor Reagan and the others called my attention to a big light flying a bit behind the plane. It appeared to be several hundred yards away. It was a fairly steady light until it began to accelerate then it appeared to elongate.
I’ll interrupt here, briefly, with commentary in noting the odd nature of this description. “A fairly steady light” that remained so, but then “appeared to elongate” as the craft accelerated. But what follows is, arguably, the most revelatory element to the entire encounter:
The light took off. It went up at a 45-degree angle at a high rate of speed. Everyone on the plane was surprised, Governor Reagan expressed amazement. I told the others I didn’t know what it was. The UFO went from a normal cruise speed to a fantastic speed instantly. If you give an airplane power it will accelerate but not like a hot rod and that is what this thing was like. We didn’t file a report on the object because for a long time they considered you a nut if you saw a UFO.
For reasons that should be obvious already, this remains one of the most–if not the most–important observation of a UFO by a U.S. politician. While the object remained ambiguous, its behavior was both consistent with conventional aircraft (i.e. its behavior while cruising, which, depending on the time of day, might have only resembled a small plane flying behind them with approaching headlights), as well as highly unusual; even exotic once we hear of the craft’s peculiar “elongation” and take-off like a hot rod. And of course, that the entire incident transpired in 1974 makes it all the more confusing; what kind of aircraft in 1974–known or unknown–could have employed such seemingly advanced manoeuvrability?
In fact, given the scope of known technology existent today, there are no modern aircraft that would be able to easily fit the criteria for what Reagan, his pilot Mr. Paynter, and the security guards aboard his plane managed to see on that occasion in 1974. Considering that Reagan also went on to serve as U.S. Commander in Chief, his encounter may even stand out among the more important UFO encounters of the last century.
