What the Hell is Going on Up There...or Down Here?

At the same time (late January 2010) that the anomalous objects were photographed in orbit around the Sun we saw bizarre aerial phenomena over Australia, specifically bizarre formations in non-random geometrical arrangements. The first of these appeared two days before the objects were photographed around the Sun.

What's most remarkable about these enormous formations is that all of them resembled the Sun or simplified representations of the Sun. Almost as if a message were being sent- look at the Sun.

But that's crazy talk, right?

Yes or no, reports about UFOs being spotted around the Sun are not new. From a 2006 story in Pravda:

Rumors about UFO’s being photographed by SOHO have been circulating for a long while. NASA would not comment on those rumors or blame irregularities during the transmission of digital images to Earth.

Scott Stevens maintains he has analyzed all photographs available in the SOHO archives. He claims to have found several perfectly identical objects on the photographs taken during a number of years.

“I am confident that UFOs are flying in the vicinity of our star,” says Stevens. “I am talking about a fleet of UFOs operating near the Sun. I believe that both NASA and the U.S. government are aware of the existence of a certain civilization whose spacecraft are capable of resisting extremely high temperatures. The powers that be are simply afraid to admit the fact. They haven’t yet decided on the tactics,” says Stevens.

And here's where it gets really interesting. Remember, this was written four years before the recent SOHO controversy we looked at yesterday (and bear in mind the January photos in question were taken down from the SOHO website):
Another Stevens’s theory has to do with extraterrestrial activity involving UFOs near the Sun. According to the theory, UFOs are usually photographed by SOHO prior to large solar flares caused by some experiments conducted by aliens.
Which, of course, we are witnessing now after a prolonged period of severely-reduced solar activity.

Now, bearing in mind that there were high atmospheric anomalies recorded over Australia in January, there was also another "spiral event" just recently....

Though we saw some strange debunker stories about UFOs (usually conspiracy types chalk this kind of phenomena up to HAARP, not aliens) in relation to the spiral, it seems to most observers that this was the second stage of the Space X rocket test:
Falcon 9 lifted off at 2:45 p.m. (EDT) / 18:45 (UTC) from Launch Complex 40 at the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station located on the Atlantic coast of Florida, approximately 5.5 km (3.5 mi) southeast of NASA’s space shuttle launch site. The Falcon 9 launch vehicle is powered by a cluster of nine SpaceX-designed and developed Merlin engines.

Now, was this all a coincidence? Did this rocket stage veer off course and produce the magnificent spiral effect over Australia purely by accident? Maybe not. There was another spaceship flying over Australia recently:

ADELAIDE, Australia — A fiery burst of light over the Australian Outback late Sunday marked the return of a Japanese space probe that scientists hope carried samples from an asteroid that could offer insights into the creation and makeup of the solar system.

After traveling 4-billion miles (6 billion kilometers) in seven years, the Hayabusa explorer incinerated on re-entry after jettisoning a capsule expected to contain the first asteroid dust ever collected, the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency said.

Hayabusa...what does that mean in English?

The Hayabusa (はや ぶさ?, literally peregrine falcon) probe was an unmanned space mission led by the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency to return a sample of material from a small near-Earth asteroid named 25143 Itokawa (dimensions 540 meters by 270 meters by 210 meters) to Earth for further analysis.

The Hayabusa spacecraft, formerly known as MUSES-C for Mu Space Engineering Spacecraft C, was launched on 9 May 2003 and rendezvoused with Itokawa in mid-September 2005.

The spacecraft also carried a detachable minilander, MINERVA, but this failed to reach the surface.

The Muses and Minerva, eh? Nice touch. But the Peregrine Falcon? Why does that sound so familiar?

Oh, right.

Then there's also Ra, god of the Green Sun, flying in his own Solar Boat towards a doorway to the stars, which is another way of saying "Stargate." Boy, those space agencies sure love their symbolic rituals don't they?

What color did we happen to see the Sun depicted as in those controversial SOHO-UFO photos?

Another interesting falcon footnote here. BP (whose own logo is the green sun) is in the news for the Deepwater Horizon disaster in the Gulf of Mexico. Here's an interesting detail about that rig you may not have heard:
Designed originally for R&B Falcon, Deepwater Horizon was built by Hyundai Heavy Industries in Ulsan, South Korea. Construction started in December 1998 and the rig was delivered in February 2001 after the acquisition of R&B Falcon by Transocean, and was insured for $560 million.

Over and over, we see the same symbols repeating in connection to "anomalous phenomena." It almost feels as if some bizarre conversation were taking place - and sometimes being written in the sky itself. I guess all we can do at this point is keep our eyes and our minds open and see if we can decode what's being said.

Like maybe the Sun is so important to these ancient space gods like Ra and Osiris because those objects have been up there a very, very, very long time.

POSTSCRIPT: Oh, by the way- what else happened that week in January 2010? That was also the week the Royal Society stunned the world by hold an open symposium on extraterrestrial life.

  1. Very interesting.

    Personally, following up on my last comment in your previous blogpost, I get the impression of Western Civilization as some sort of massive interstellar cargo cult.

    Wiki gives a nice succinct definition: "A cargo cult is a type of religious practice that has appeared in many traditional tribal societies in the wake of interaction with technologically advanced cultures."

    Our solar system might be little more than some sort of train station or watering hole for a much more advanced and complex interstellar society. One our limited sensor technology could never detect - possibly because any light or signals we would be able to detect from this civilization's "center" might be too "young" to have reached us. Michio Kaku suggests that it is possible we are receiving these signals all the time, but they are divided into packets that we would never be able to decipher piecemeal just like e-mail. Also, if they are using some sort of stargate tech, EM signals for interstellar communication would be too slow.

    If there was any sort of interaction - or if our ancestors were simply able to witness some of these travelers - then the Chariots of the Gods idea makes sense, but what I find interesting is that it is very possible such an advanced alien race would not have even noticed us while we organized our very complex behavior around our perception and imagination of what they might be.

    Perhaps when we started to emulate them - that's when they noticed us and decided to see exactly how far we could develop.

  2. Great post Chris!

    Re the Falcon 9, i hadn't noticed before that it was powered by nine Merlin rockets - yeah, Merlin/Myrddin, the magician, but the Merlin is also a species of Falcon (Falco columbarius). Way beyond ridiculous! ;-)



  3. The Secret Sun's sure cookin' Chris.

    You gonna comment on the Ray Mabus / Nostradamus situation? Oooh, spooky...

    History's threads are twisting together, got to keep the knots out.

  4. One of Stanly Kubrick's last book is called "Sunstorm" dealing with an alien intervention with our Sun causing unprecedented solar storm that threatens to wipe out everything on earth! Again the insider lets us know of what is comiing..predictive programming.

  5. I meant Arthur C. Clarke...wierd

  6. Thanks for connecting the dots so skillfully!

    Great catch on Hayabusa -- peregrine falcon -- falco pergrinus. Falco "Peregrinus" translates as stranger or foreigner, or could we read "alien"?

    And the recurring number 9 is numerologically connected to Mars, which has also figured in many of the space stories this year. . . not to mention astrological chart of the oil spill.

    And the falcon's connection to the green sun, not to mention BP's green sun logo, is weird and a bit scary especially as we approach the summer solstice.

    Thanks for your keen insights!

  9. Since you included a question mark, let me mention that はやぶさ for Hayabusa is correct, but this straighter angle would be easier to read. The kanji is 隼, but even many Japanese will not know this character, as the hiragana (which you used) is usually used instead. The katakana ハヤブサ is just as acceptable as the hiragana, too. Or the romaji (English) Hayabusa is fine anyway, even for Japanese.
    Now that we're all totally clear on that... Hayabusa is also the name of the new shinkansen (bullet train) that will be put into operation this coming December, extending the line northward on the main island of Honshu.

  10. @: ノールズ博士 [-that's Professor Knowles in Japanese. Knowles-hakase. Sensei would be incorrect, hakase means “Expert”, it's used for Professor, Scientists, and Doctors]

    Hayabusa means Falcon in Japanese. Rarely [like, only in text books] would it mean Peregrine Falcon.

    In children's books/comics, when the Kanji for Falcon 隼 appears, はやぶさ [Hayabusa] will get written on the side in Hiragana as a footnote - Hiragana is syllabic, Kanji is just a bunch of awful symbols. [Since Japanese is pretty much the least user friendly language ever, most Japanese children's literature contains Kana i.e. like, little syllabic footnotes on the side. When you're a kid, reading comics actually helps increase your Kanji vocabulary]

    Weird sync:

    There's this Japanese SciFi show from the 1960's http://ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/%E6%B5%B7%E5%BA%95%E4%BA%BA8823

    Undersea Man 8823 [?] anyway, it's about a submarine named Hayabusa occupied by the survivors of a magical lost civilization that was destroyed by a comet/asteroid. The remnants of the civilization now live/hide on the Ocean floor. They're actually the bad guys.

    @Chris Fitz: Katakana wouldn't be appropriate. That's just the syllabic spelling for non-Japanese words, usually foreign products.

  11. Rebecca -

    I know what katakana is, and in this case it would still be appropriate. I'm in Japan; I've just confirmed it with my wife, who is Japanese and has translated many books. For some things like birds, fish, and vegetables, katakana characters are commonly used, even if there is an original kanji and the word itself was not borrowed from a foreign language. The katakana for cucumber,キュウリ, for example, is what you actually see being used most of the time, more than the kanji or the hiragana. This word didn't come from another language. I'm telling you, the katakana would be fine for the 'hayabusa' bird itself (though the spacecraft and the new shinkansen are in hiragana, usually, as I said), and are often used. In a sentence, the katakana for hayabusa stands out more clearly among the hiragana and the kanji, so that's one reason it's used. Thanks -

  12. @Chris,

    add to it all the appearance of the GREEN comet McNaught (C/2009 R) over Britain (UK) and it gets
    Curiouser and Curiouser my friend!
    (and in the wake of the BP green sun logo so much in the NEWS lately for the Deepwater HoR-i-zon and Gulf Oil Disaster)

  13. @ Chris Spitz:

    Don't move back to America or give your children Western names, because then they'll have to deal with people like you that call them out and question their heritage. Or in this particular case, question their reading comprehension.

    & in your previous post, you never specified if you were referring to the Spacecraft. You said the Katakana would be fine. When I said “No, it would not.” I meant writing the name of the Spacecraft in Katakana. [Btw, I was making a vague generalization about Katakana. I was taught to use it as least as possible in writing; it's used more in advertising and products. Food labels. Names.]

    As for translating experience, I write [Japanese and English] lyrics for a certain notorious J-Pop entertainment company [Wow, I really enforce 'them hafa stereotypes]. As ridiculous as it seems, they try their best to make the English phrases/titles legit.

    Anyway, you were very cruel, elitist, and condescending to me. I'm sure you wouldn't want your children being shamed and belittled because of being mixed [I know I'm no “Japanese wife”].

    - Great, now I feel like I spammed this response page. Which makes me feel more awful.

    *takes deep breath*

    @Strange Eye:

    A green comet? [sounds very pretty]

    Perhaps when the comet vanishes the oil spill will end?

    - That BP Green Sun logo always struck me funny.

  14. @レベッカ

    if only we could be so lucky!
    I try to put out of my mind the research of PH.D's like "IRA LEIFER" (oil spill specialist) at the Coastal Research center (UC Santa Barbara). I've heard him guestimate up to 1/2 million years on this well. (He's part of the President's Expert Spill team)


  15. Rebecca -

    Wow, what an overreaction on your part. You're just wrong in all these things you say. It seems you like to think of yourself as the sole resident Japanese expert on this blog (fine...big deal) and you feel threatened if anybody else dares to make a point about Japanese. My comments weren't personal at all, like yours are.
    First of all, your original comment to me, "Katakana wouldn't be appropriate," is a blanket statement made with absolute certainty that you're right... even though you weren't right. No hint of any qualifying language, such as "usually wouldn't be appropriate," just the simplistic assertion. I just pointed out that Hayabusa is, in fact, sometimes written in katakana, contrary to your claim that it cannot be.
    My comments were not cruel, elitist, or condescending in any way... please try to read my post again objectively, not emotionally. How ridiculous.
    Your own comments were all these things, though! Gosh! Talking about my wife and kids like that? What is your problem? I mentioned that I had confirmed my point with an experienced translator, who happens to be my wife, that's all. I mentioned I'm in Japan just by way of saying that I'm familiar with current usage, that's all. Take some deep breaths and relax, please, before you post.

  16. @ Chris Spitz:

    Dude, did you read anything I wrote? I never said it couldn't be [as in, never] written in Katakana, I just said it wouldn't be appropriate. It wouldn't be appropriate because the Spacecraft [with I assumed you were referring to because you never stated otherwise] would normally be written in Hiragana.

    I never meant to insult you or your family; I just interpreted your post as being condescending because you translated my western name into English, then went all: “I live in Japan, I'm married to a Japanese translator.” - never acknowledged “Hey, this girl might be Japanese too!”

    Even the “thanks” at the end, sounded [insert preferred explicit]. Like, “ha, in your face”.

    Anyway, let's clear this up, once and for all:

    I only corrected you [in my very first post] because I assumed you said the Spacecraft could be written in Katakana. I said “that wouldn't be appropriate” because the Spacecraft's name would be written in Hiragana.

    My explanation of Katakana [which I'm aware can be used for more things than just foreign titles of stuff] is awful because I'm a lefty/dyslexic and word things poorly.

    Anyway, I don't get off on explaining Japanese in these comments. I just explained the Japanese so I could link to that Submarine Man 8823 sync.

    ...IDK, call me sensitive, but something about your response just rubbed me the wrong way. It was very cold.

    You must write a lot of post it notes….you need to add more personality to your writing. Or maybe a few smiley faces ^_^



    1/2 Million year oil leak prediction? Surely you kid...

  17. @レベッカ

    It's not me friend, I'm no marine oil spill and well specialist.

    Wish I didn't hear PhD "IRA LEIFER" (UCSB) say '1/2 million years', but he did!


  18. Rebecca -

    You're the one who is not reading carefully. I DID say that hiragana would be correct for the the spacecraft... it's the first thing I said. You're trying to wriggle out of this now because you realize you were wrong. The fury in your first reply to me was completely misplaced. Instead of thinking, "Wait a minute, maybe I was forgetting something... maybe this person has a point," you imediately went on attack mode (which I've noticed before you do with other people,too)and flamed away at me like crazy

    Okay, since you persist in making fun of my name (calling me Chris Spitz instead of Chris Fitz, which besides being lame and childish is disrespectful of another person who was just trying to contribute to the thread), and since you mention your own name, let me make my own observation: This is an English-language site, right? By using Japanese, which the great majority of people on this site wouldn't be able to read, you're shouting "Look at me, everybody! I'm, like, an exotic woman of the Orient! Am I not very cool?"
    A couple of things you've said make me suspect that you may have parental or cultural identity issues. (You started all this with your nasty comments about my family, please remember.) Ordinarily I would completely understand and sympathize - because people in my family have to deal with these things too, as you sort of guessed - but because of your incredible aggressiveness, it's hard to be as kind as I usually would be. You just attack people instead of pausing to think they might even be interesting to communicate with.

    By the way, I'm sorry but somebody has to say it: J-POP stinks. It's a standing joke among the foreign community in Japan. At least 90% of the Japanese pop singers can't really sing, and they can't play. The very few decent songs that come out each year have usually been lifted to some degree from U.S. sources. The "angry" sound (which you probably like) of hip-hop and related forms is often reproduced, but without the wit and musicality of the original. Shouting incomprehensively throughout a song is a good way to disguise the fact that you can't sing. Then there's the R&B wannabes.. okay, a couple of the female singers are decent. Outside of the increasingly tasteless teens-&-20s set in Japan, and some following in Korea and China, who listens to J-POP around the world? Nobody. Could the readers of this blog name a single Japanese singer, group, or song? I doubt it very much. If you're working in J-POP, maybe that explains quite a bit. :-)

    My precise tone probably doesn't meet with you approval, again. How about your own tone, though?


  19. Ah good! To see a sync with Australia and the sun...there is a solar eclipse there in about 8 months that should be a lot of fun!
