Earth-Like Planet Found in Nearby Star System?

Earth-Like Planet Found in Nearby Star System?

     (Phys.org)—An Earth-like planet may be lurking in a star system located just 16 light years away, according to a new research. The star, named Gliese 832, was recently investigated by a team of astronomers searching for additional exoplanets that may be residing between the two currently known alien worlds in this system. A paper detailing the finding was published online on Apr. 15 in the arXiv journal.
By Tomasz Nowakowski

Gliese 832 is a red dwarf and has just under half the mass and radius of our sun. The star is orbited by a giant Jupiter-like exoplanet designated Gliese 832b and by a super-Earth mass planet Gliese 832c. The gas giant, with a mass of 0.64 Jupiter masses, is orbiting the star at a distance of 3.53 AU, while the other planet is potentially a rocky world, around five times more massive than the Earth, residing very close its host star—about 0.16 AU.

Now, a team of astronomers, led by Suman Satyal of the University of Texas at Arlington, has reanalyzed the available data on this nearby planetary system hoping to find more extrasolar worlds that may be located in a vast space between the two known planets. [...]

5 British UFO Encounters Which ‘Prove’ Aliens Have Visited Us

5 British UFO Encounters Which ‘Prove’ Aliens Have Visited Us

     To this day, people swear there is something eerie about Rendlesham Forest - only last year, dog walkers claimed their pets became ill from walking in the area.

In 1980, U.S. Army personnel stationed near Rendlesham in Suffolk saw a strange, metallic triangle which was ‘dripping molten metal’ - and witnessed a light like a ‘huge red eye’.
By Rob Waugh

The Rendlesham Forest Incident - described as ‘Britain’s Roswell’ - still fascinates UFO fans, two decades on.

But have aliens really visited Britain? Here are five incidents which UFO fans claim is proof that extraterrestrials HAVE visited our country - and could still be here now. [...]

UFO Flies by Seattle’s Space Needle

     A Washington witness at Seattle reported watching a square or rectangular-shaped UFO move silently over the Space Needle, according to testimony in Case 75528 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.

The witness was outside on an eighth-floor terrace of the Hyatt House Downtown Seattle hotel close to the famous Space Needle structure with four friends at 8 p.m. on March 30, 2016, with mostly clear skies with a bluish, and fading to dark sky.

By Roger Marsh

“As I looked toward the Space Needle, I saw what first seemed like a fast jet coming from the east, heading due west toward Puget Sound, slightly to the north of us,” the witness stated.“Not a sound throughout sighting.”

The witness described the object.

“Hadwo twhite, blinking lights pulsating in unison at approximately 1 Hz, as if each wing, left and right, had a big, white light covering most of the wing surface, but could not discern forward fuselage or tail, hence looked like it was a flying straight wing.” [...]

The witness first thought the object could be an airplane despite the unusual white lights pattern.

“I am familiar with airplanes; am engineer working in aerospace. Could be soundless if it might be much higher than it seemed; for instance, despite white lights flashing, thought they could still be landing lights.”

The witness paid attention to how the object moved.

“The object flew in a straight line while displaying white, pulsating lights, very fast, but at perceived constant linear speed, as it subtended an angle of approximately 45-degrees from my viewpoint and initial spotting. Covered this angle in not more than 10 seconds. Given estimated altitude of twice the height of the Space Needle or more, that would still be very fast for a soundless flight; much too fast for a small drone, or for a helicopter if higher in altitude; yet could not be high enough to be soundless, which would have meant extremely fast.” [...]

DARPA's Strange New 24-Motor Drone

     The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency — or DARPA — just launched a one-fifth-scale model of its LightningStrike aircraft for the first time.
By Bryan Clark

Built by Aurora Flight Science, the ‘Subscale LightningStrike’ relies on 24 fans to propel the 325 pound scale model and enable vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL). Not shown in the video, but planned on the full-sized version, is the ability for these propellers to rotate to provide thrust in addition to assisting in take-off and landing.

The full-sized LightiningStrike, once completed, is said to be capable of speeds of 400 knots (about 460 mph) while carrying several thousand pounds of cargo (without a pilot) and running entirely on electric power. [...]

Newly Discovered Galaxy Spotted Orbiting the Milky Way

     The galaxy’s empire has a new colony. Astronomers have detected a dwarf galaxy orbiting the Milky Way whose span stretches farther than nearly all other Milky Way satellites. It may belong to a small group of galaxies that is falling into our own.
By Ken Croswell


Now, Gabriel Torrealba at the University of Cambridge and his colleagues have found a new galaxy about 380,000 light years away in the constellation Crater. “It’s the fourth largest satellite of the Milky Way,” Torrealba says.

Named the Crater 2 dwarf, the new galaxy is not apparent to human eyes, though individual stars within the galaxy are visible. The team were only able to find it this January by using a computer to look for over-densities of stars in data from images taken by a telescope in Chile.

UFOs and Nukes Connection Examined in New Film: The Amazing, Ominous Secret Revealed

Bookmark and Share

     When CNN live-streamed my UFOs and Nukes press conference in Washington D.C., on September 27, 2010, I assumed—far too optimistically as it turned out—that the mainstream media would react with sustained interest and finally begin to ask hard questions of less-than-candid government officials. After all, the seven U.S. Air Force veterans who participated in the event had just divulged still-classified information about UFOs shutting down large numbers of nuclear missiles, hovering over nuclear bomb storage bunkers, monitoring still-unfinished ICBM silos, and other incredible incidents during the Cold War era.

By Robert Hastings
The UFO Chronicles

The press conference was the culmination of years of investigation into such events that I had begun in earnest in 1973, when I started interviewing U.S. military veterans regarding their involvement in cases where UFOs had demonstrated an obvious interest in nuclear weapons sites.

By 1981, it was clear to me that the situation was very real and ongoing and, I concluded, needed as much exposure as possible. Consequently, I went out on the college lecture circuit to attempt to inform the American public, as best as possible, about the dramatic developments that had been kept from them for decades.

UFOs and Nukes Extraordinary Encounters at Nuclear Weapons SitesIn addition to my speaking engagements, my 600-page book, UFOs and Nukes: Extraordinary Encounters at Nuclear Weapons Sites, published in 2008, has gradually captured an ever-larger, worldwide following over time.

Nevertheless, it seemed to me, the largest possible audience would be generated by producing and distributing a documentary film that presented the hidden history of nuclear weapons-related UFO activity in a fast-paced, visually-engaging manner, hence the creation of my documentary film, UFOs and Nukes: The Secret Link Revealed, which is now available at Vimeo On Demand.

While the film has only just been made accessible, initial reviews are very favorable. Gary Heseltine, editor of the UFO Truth e-zine, called it “The best UFO documentary I've ever seen.” Frederik Uldall, of the Exopolitics Denmark group, wrote that the film is “Absolutely brilliant! Definitely one of the top five UFO documentaries of all time.”

So, dear reader, are you tired of the many Fluff-and-Bullshit UFO programs offered up on commercial television these days? Me too, which is why I made my own film. Check it out—you won’t be disappointed. Rent or buy it here.

Watcher takes footage of separate incidents - could it be visitors from another world?
By Ben Hurst

Is this incontrovertible proof that life from another planet visited Sutton Coldfield in the middle of the night?

A sky-watcher took footage of a mysterious light hovering around the area, which he described as ‘smooth and curved’.

Then 50 minutes later a glowing orb reappeared.

The sky watcher said he was looking out of his window on March 30 at 5.37am and saw: “At first I thought I saw something move across the sky so that’s when I got my camera on my phone and that UFO just comes from nowhere.

“You can’t see it on the video but to the naked eye it was very smooth and curved, it even kind of split into two.” [...]
