LUNAR LIGHTS ON A HOLLOW MOON? Nevertheless, official NASA transcripts and blatant censorship of audio transmissions don't get any more ominous. Over the past year, I have discovered that there are many mysteries in which NASA and the moon share. I've already provided some evidence of NASA obscuring certain elements during the Apollo Missions (more below) - but were they already aware and prepared for spooky things being seen or heard on the moon before the Apollo missions were even launched? Strange lights and objects have been recorded on our moon for hundreds of years. In 1787, legendary astronomer, Sir William Herschel, recorded strange lights traveling across the dark lunar surface. On one particular occasion of that same year, he spotted 3 red lights in the darkness of the lunar surface, describing the brightest one as being brighter than a recently discovered comet. The classical Greek philosopher, mathematician and scientist Plato also reported anomalous lights on the moon sometime around 400 BC.

Called the "heliosphere," it springs from the sun and extends far beyond the orbit of Pluto, providing a first line of defense against cosmic rays and interstellar clouds that try to enter our local space. Although the heliosphere is huge and literally fills the sky, it emits no light and no one has actually seen it. Until now. NASA's IBEX (Interstellar Boundary Explorer) spacecraft has made the first all-sky maps of the heliosphere and the results have taken researchers by surprise. Above: IBEX's all-sky map of energetic neutral atom emission reveals a bright filament of unknown origin. "This is a shocking new result," says IBEX principal investigator Dave McComas of the Southwest Research Institute. Although the ribbon looks bright in the IBEX map, it does not glow in any conventional sense. Stay tuned for updates.

Is Comet Elenin a Brown Dwarf Extinguishing Earth in October 2011? « chaukeedaar's blog Some days ago an interesting video was uploaded on YouTube by several different users (see at the end), showing an animated orbit diagram from the official NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory website. I could not find the initial source, but the narrator presents himself as Mike from silvercoin.com. The video shows the expected orbit of comet Elenin as it will go through our inner solar system this year. It seems that every time this comet aligns with the Sun and the Earth, major earthquakes happened on Earth. Its pretty easy to check the following dates for yourself in the model (Java needed) and see the alignments: Alignment 1, February 27. 2010: Chile earthquake (8.8)Alignment 2, September 4. 2010: Christchurch earthquake (7.2)Alignment 3, March 15. 2011: Japan earthquake (9.0) Future dates from the orbit: Alignment 4, September 27. 2011Alignment 5, October 12. 2011: Physical pole shift?

The Extinction Protocol: 2012 and beyond | 2012 and Earthchanges News events Astronomers Get First Peek at Atmosphere of a "Super-Earth" Exoplanet Someday in the coming years, if astronomers finally succeed in locating a virtual Earth twin outside the solar system—a tiny dot of a world at a temperate, life-enabling distance from a sunlike star—the achievement will hardly be cause for resting on observational laurels. Instead another race will begin: to characterize the planet and its atmosphere and to determine if the world is truly habitable or, tantalizingly, if it is already inhabited by some extraterrestrial life-form. In the meantime, astronomers are honing their techniques on the closest thing available—so-called super-Earths, just a few times the mass of our own planet, which are too hot to be habitable but are interesting in their own right. To that end, a team of researchers has managed to capture the light spectrum of a super-Earth backlit by its host star. "This is the most accessible way to study these planets' atmospheres," says lead study author Jacob Bean of the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics.

Space Zen: Will Humans' Brains Change During Travel in Outer Space? -A Galaxy Insight In February, 1971, Apollo 14 astronaut Edgar Mitchell experienced the little understood phenomenon sometimes called the “Overview Effect”. He describes being completely engulfed by a profound sense of universal connectedness. Without warning, he says, a feeing of bliss, timelessness, and connectedness began to overwhelm him. He describes becoming instantly and profoundly aware that each of his constituent atoms were connected to the fragile planet he saw in the window and to every other atom in the Universe. He described experiencing an intense awareness that Earth, with its humans, other animal species, and systems were all one synergistic whole. Rusty Schweikart experienced it on March 6th 1969 during a spacewalk outside his Apollo 9 vehicle: “When you go around the Earth in an hour and a half, you begin to recognize that your identity is with that whole thing. Newberg's first test subject will not be an astronaut, but rather a civilian. This is done with Faraday cages.
