Unusual structures in Crater Paracelsus C

Abstract

     The authors present an analysis of Apollo 15 and Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter images of two unusual features in the crater Paracelsus C on the far side of the moon. At first glance these structures appear to be walls or towers on the lunar surface. By combining multiple images, we show the larger feature, oriented in a northeast/southwest direction, is not simply a wall but two walls on either side of a narrow valley or “passageway”. Using single image shape from shading and 3D terrain visualization we show in a

computer-generated perspective view looking northeast that the southwest end appears to be the entrance to the passageway. A reverse angle view looking southwest shows the passageway ending at a rise of terrain at the other end, possibly leading underground. The terrain surrounding the two structures is not flat but appears “excavated” by some unknown mechanism, natural or artificial. It is shown that these objects are visually different from the lunar background because their underlying structure is different.

Introduction

The search for extra-terrestrial intelligence (SETI) began in the 1960s with radio-telescopes and has, to date, produced no positive evidence of its existence. During these early years of SETI, Sagan [1] spoke about the possibility of extraterrestrial visitation, “It is not out of the question that artifacts of these visits still exist, or even that some kind of base is maintained
(possibly automatically) within the solar system to provide continuity for successive expeditions. Because of weathering and the possibility of detection and interference by the inhabitants of the Earth, it would be preferable not to erect such a base on the Earth’s surface. The Moon seems one reasonable alternative. Forthcoming high resolution photographic reconnaissance of the Moon from space vehicles – particularly of the back side – might bear these possibilities in mind.”

After six in the afternoon, William Escobar was in the garage of his mother’s house, when he noticed the presence of a planet shining in the sky, so he took his cell phone to capture the extraordinary scene with the camera .

“I’m fond of astronomy, and I wanted to take the photo of Venus that looked pretty nice,” he said. But as he held up the cell phone pointing up at the sky, a reflection in the distance attracted his attention. “I know it was something, because with my eyes off the phone I saw something happen very fast,” he warns, but I was still doubtful.

Shortly afterwards, as he reviewed the images, William found a response to his uneasiness, discovering surprisingly that the opaque flash, almost unnoticed, had been recorded on his mobile device, and that it was not a simple reflection, it had a defined shape.

“My son looked up at the sky, pointed and said, ‘moon?’”the witness stated. “My wife and I looked to see what he was pointing at and we saw a white, cylindrical or rectangular object above the clouds and travelling from south to north at a fast rate.”

The witness immediately noted the direction of wind in the area.

“The wind was blowing in the same direction; however, this object did not look like a balloon, but a solid, reflective structure.”

A Dozen UFOs Suspend Flights at Jorge Chavez Airport | Peru



A Dozen UFOs Suspend Flights at Jorge Chavez Airport - Peru February 2017

     A flotilla of UFOs allegedly caused the suspension of flight operations at the Jorge Chávez Airport in El Callao (Perú). The sighting ocurred during the month of February, and what startled Peruvian ufologists is that the Corporación Peruana de Aeropuertos y Aviacion Comercial

(CORPAC, Peruvian Airports and Commercial Aviation Corporation) recorded the incident in an official document.

With regard to the alleged sighting of the UFO flotilla in the Jorge Chavez Internationa Airport’s airspace, ufologist Mario Zegarra says CORPAC filed official documents recording the incident, which hindered air oeprations that evening.

According to Zegarra, there are recordings capturing conversations between the control tower and those pilots unable to take off or land in the airport for at least three hours.

“The radar at Jorge Chavez captured 12 unidentified contacts on its screen, each identified with code 0000 for UFO,” said Zegarra.

Another ufologist, Joshue Cornejo, says that a UFO was recorded at 7:38 that evening using night vision equipment. “These objects cannot be seen unaided,” Cornejo noted, but can be captured on the infrared band.”

UFO specialist Mario Zegarra will hold a conference on March 11th in Miraflores.

Eyewitness Testimony To The Battle of Los Angeles’ Huge UFO | VIDEO – 75th Anniversary



C. Scott Littleton Ph.D. – Eyewitness To The Battle of Los Angeles

Editor’s Note: On this day we pay tribute to my good friend, colleague, research partner and eyewitness to one of the most significant UFO events in history.

Here is an excerpt of an article by a former student of Scotty’s, Caitlin Hammer. The UFO Chronicles published her piece back in 2006–FW:

– Part I –

     “Scotty Littleton awoke to his parents’ whispers in the hall. He peeked out and saw his father’s pale face. As an air raid warden for his beachfront neighborhood, Scotty’s dad had to leave his family and enforce the blackout outside. The shells weren’t exploding over the ocean

this time, so it couldn’t be a drill. But neither could he confirm his fears of a real enemy attack –nobody answered the phone at the Civil Defense Headquarters. Only after he walked into the street for a better view did the air raid siren start up.

Mrs. Littleton’s father was staying with the family, and he was slow to get out of bed. Slow to do everything actually. But when Scotty’s dad shouted from the doorway, “Mr. Hotchkiss, I think this may be the real thing,” the old widower bolted down the basement steps.

Scotty and his mom were too curious to remain underground. Besides, the old man’s morning breath is deadlier than falling shells, they thought, and ran back up the stairs to the beach at their back door. The two of them stood side by side, clinging together for warmth, their eyes on the sky. Searchlights focused on what appeared to Scotty’s mother as a silvery, lozenge-shaped bug, seemingly paralyzed by the lights, hanging directly over Hermosa Beach.

Glowing shrapnel fell on the beach in front of them, sending the pair back under the eaves for protection. Scotty was so close he could smell the acrid smoke as the shells exploded. His eyes refused to blink and his lower lip dangled. Were the neighbor kids seeing this?

Not far from Strand Street, another air raid warden left his family in the backyard staring skyward. The thing they watched so raptly reminded him of the Graf Zeppelin he’d seen land at Los Angeles’ Mines Field in ‘29, only wider and flatter. He and some neighbors jumped into their cars, tossing a couple of shotguns into the backseat. The object picked up speed and vaulted into the night sky as they followed it, racing down Sepulveda. As it moved away, the warden got one last look at the rectangular silhouette. Three narrow slits, like the gills of a shark, stood out, glow an angry orange-red. And then it was out of range . . ..”
