Strange cigar-shaped ‘Asteroid’ is first interstellar visitor to our solar system!

Last month, the Pan-STARRS 1 telescope in Hawai’i picked up a very strange object moving across the sky. It was originally believed that the object was a comet but astronomers quickly realized it was something entirely different.

Above image shows an impression of cigar-shaped asteroid Oumuamua – European Southern Observatory / M. Kornmesser and a cigar-shaped UFO on the backside of the Moon. 

Observations with ESO’s Very Large Telescope and others have shown that the object is a rocky cigar-shaped asteroid and it has been confirmed as the first ever interstellar object to enter our solar system.

The object has been dubbed ‘Oumuamua’ by the International Astronomical Union. The name means “a messenger from a far arriving first” in the language of the Central Pacific Island.

According to a European Southern Observatory (ESO) Oumuamua is like nothing seen before. It is red, made of dense rock or metal, and is shaped roughly like a giant cigar measuring up to 400 meters long and around 40 meters wide.

Oumuamua varies dramatically in brightness by a factor of ten as it spins on its axis every 7.3 hours. This unusually large variation in brightness means that the object with its complex, convolute shape, is highly elongated and may well have been wandering through the Milky Way, unattached to any star system, for hundreds of millions of years before its chance encounter with the Solar System, reports RT.

It seems to come from the direction of the star Vega. However, Vega itself moves and was not in the area when Oumuamua was last there about 300,000 years ago.

As quickly confirmed by the astronomers the object is an asteroid which became the first ever interstellar object to enter our solar system; but given the very strange shape of the object it reminds me another huge cigar-shaped ‘UFO’ object on the backside of the Moon photographed by the crew of Apollo 15 which is very similar to the cigar-shaped ‘Messenger From A Far Arriving First’!

Nearby ‘Death Star’ Dubbed Kronos has Devoured 15 Earth-like Planets

In mythology, the Titan Kronos devoured his children, including Poseidon (better known as the planet Neptune), Hades (Pluto) and three daughters.

Astronomers discovered twin stars, one of which showed signs of having ingested a dozen or more rocky planets, they named them after Kronos and the companion star is named Krios, after Kronos’ brother. Their official designations are HD 240430 and HD 240429, and they are both about 350 light years from Earth.

Both Kronos and Krios are sun-like stars – yellow G-type – and are about 4 billion years old, orbiting each other about every 10,000 years. They have different chemical compositions – not an unknown phenomenon in binary star systems – but the scale of that difference is unusual, and seems even more bizarre when put in the context of the sun.

“Even if our sun ate the entire inner solar system, it wouldn’t come close to the anomaly we see in this star,” David Hogg, the group leader for astronomical data at the Center for Computational Astrophysics (CCA) at the Flatiron Institute, who co-authored a new study on the subject, said in a statement Thursday.

The terrestrial matter is rich in heavier elements that can make up rock-forming minerals, such as magnesium, aluminum, silicon, iron, chromium, and yttrium. These materials are found in abundance in Kronos’ outer layers. The lighter elements like oxygen, carbon, nitrogen, and potassium are found in the gaseous form. And given the laws of chemistry, heavier elements formed in nature after the lighter ones.

Therefore, usually, a Kronos-like metal-rich star would contain “all the other elements enhanced at a similar level, whereas Kronos has volatile elements suppressed, which makes it really weird in the general context of stellar abundance patterns.

All of the elements that would make up a rocky planet are exactly the elements that are enhanced on Kronos, and the volatile elements are not enhanced, so that provides a strong argument for a planet engulfment scenario, instead of something else.

Further calculations showed “that gaining this many rock-forming minerals without many volatiles would require engulfing roughly 15 Earth-mass planets.”

‘Planet Nine’ Could Be an Alien Intruder

'Planet Nine' Could Be an Alien Intruder

New dynamical simulations suggest that the mysterious unseen world might be an interstellar rogue that was captured by our solar system.

      There are few solar system mysteries quite as compelling as “Planet Nine.”

The hypothetical world, thought to be orbiting at an extreme distance

from the sun, has some observational evidence that supports its existence. But as it is so far away and therefore so dim, it’s not very easy to actually directly observe it.

Calculated to scoot as far away as 1,000 AU from the sun (when 1 AU, or astronomical unit, is the average distance at which the Earth orbits the sun), there’s a huge question mark hanging over how it even formed – it had to have evolved far closer to the sun and then some gravitational process migrated it away. This extreme orbit has led to other ideas that Planet Nine might have been pilfered by our sun when it passed close to another star system in the past.

But there’s an alternative hypotheses that suggests Planet Nine is actually an alien intruder; a captured “rogue” or orphaned planet that was adopted by the solar system.

Aliens Previously Populated Our Solar System?

Astrophysicist: ETs May Have Already
Lived and Died In Our Solar System

The big question: Did they leave artifacts behind for us to find?

Aliens Previously Populated Our Solar System?

     As science continues to search the cosmos for evidence of intelligent extraterrestrials and, at the very least, for habitable planets that might harbor even non-intelligent life, one scientist is raising another eye-opening question: Was there a time in the far distant past when an advanced civilization actually lived on one of the planets of our solar system, long before earthlings evolved?

Pennsylvania State University astrophysicist Jason T. Wright suggests that ancient aliens may have lived on nearby planets hundreds of millions of years ago, before vanishing without a trace.

‘Unknown Objects’ Could Be Planet Nine

'Unknown Objects' Could Be Planet Nine

     Astronomers have been hunting for Planet Nine — the large, mysterious body thought to lurk at the edge of our solar system — ever since researchers at Caltech published evidence of its existence last year.

Ordinary people have now joined the search. And they’ve made some intriguing finds.

Participants in a citizen science campaign hosted by the crowdsourcing program Zooniverse, and the BBC pinpointed four previously unknown objects in the outer solar system that could be candidates for Planet Nine, according to researchers at the Australian National University.

Mysterious Alien Probe operates within our Solar System and it is heading towards Earth

Three space objects are heading towards Earth and NASA has identified only one of the objects as comet C/2016 discovered by the Space Agency on October 2016. According to NASA this celestial body which is visiting the inner solar system for the first time and releases clouds of gas and dust as it gets closer to the sun, is expected to make a close pass to Earth this January (2017).

But there are two more space objects and NASA’s scientists have no idea what these objects (object 1991 VG and object 2016 WF9) are. What they know, both objects are hurtling towards Earth and it is expected that especially object 991 VG will sweep past Earth this summer (2017).

While they suggest that object 2016 WF9, discovered on November 27, 2016, could be a comet, which is not considered to be a threat to the planet, the origin of object 1991 VG which was spotted for the first in 1991 by Astronomer James Scotti from the University of Arizona, is a real mystery.

The mysterious part about 1991 VG is that it showed a rapid rate of rotation and strangely, its brightness fluctuated over time. This behavior, at that time, hadn’t been seen in any asteroid of similar size. Interestingly, astronomers state that the object also had an orbit which was eerily similar to that of our planet.

The object is considered anomalous given its strange rotation and longevity in space. Among the proposed theories about what 1991 VG is, there are those who suggest it might be an alien probe, space junk or even a small meteorite. However, until today, astronomers have no clue what it actually is.

According to two mathematicians from the University of Edinburgh, it’s very possible that there are Alien probes operating within our solar system. Duncan Forgan and Arwen Nicholson suggest that we cannot rule out the possibility that there are extraterrestrial craft within our solar system.

The mathematicians used computing power to inform their predictions, which might not sound out of place in a sci-fi novel. The two mathematicians analyzed the possibility that probes could travel through space in a study published in the Journal of Astrobiology.

In their work, Duncan Forgan and Arwen Nicholson affirm the possibility that highly advanced alien races are taking advantage of the gravitational field of the stars to speed up “their” spacecraft traveling through space.

Maybe it turns out that space object 1991 VG is just a comet or asteroid, but what if it is of extraterrestrial nature?

The Dragon of Revelation 12 could be Planet Nine and it will be discovered “Official” in 2017?

Planet Nine, the undiscovered planet at the edge of the solar system that was predicted by the work of Caltech’s Konstantin Batygin and Mike Brown in January 2016 appears to be responsible for the unusual tilt of the sun and may be adding a wobble to the solar system according to a new study.

“Because Planet Nine is so massive and has an orbit tilted compared to the other planets, the solar system has no choice but to slowly twist out of alignment,” says Elizabeth Bailey, a graduate student at Caltech and lead author of a study announcing the discovery.

Brown and Batygin’s discovery of evidence that the sun is orbited by an as-yet-unseen planet that is about 10 times the size of Earth with an orbit that is about 20 times farther from the sun on average than Neptune’s – changes the physics.

The tilt of the solar system’s orbital plane has long befuddled astronomers because of the way the planets formed: as a spinning cloud slowly collapsing first into a disk and then into objects orbiting a central star but Planet Nine offers a testable explanation for the otherwise mysterious spin–orbit misalignment of the solar system.

With the above in mind, many pieces of the puzzle fall into place.

In 1983 the Washington Post wrote about the discovery of an unknown heavenly celestial body. Then, in recent years several scientists have reported on this mysterious planet and many of them died under suspicious circumstances. Furthermore, since 1983 Governments around the world building huge underground bunkers and shelters. Why? To ensure the survival of the elite from an impending cataclysm?

NASA has sent an infrared telescope into space and the Vatican uses an infrared telescope, named Lucifer and not to forget NASA has placed an infrared telescope in Antarctica.

Now after 33 years of silence, the astronomers Mike Brown and Konstatin Batygin say that there is “something” lurking at the edge of our solar system (Published in the Astronomical Journal on June 24, 2016).

 According to astronomer Mike Brown it will not take much longer than 16 months for Planet Nine “official” will be discovered. (Note: The “official” discovery will be around September 23, 2017?).

If we refer to the position of the stars in the sky everything points to a specific date, which is September 23, 2017, then could the Dragon of Revelation 12 be the rogue planet Nine (or call it Nibiru, Planet X, wormwood) in our solar system? Might it travel out into deep space only to return and to cause havoc on the earth?

Image left: Buzz Aldrin got on a Russian plane to visit Antarctica!

Could the recent trips of Patriach Kirill, then John Kerry, then Buzz Aldrin to Antarctica have something to do with this planet Nine?

There were meetings between secret forces that control the planet from behind the scenes?

Something Appears and Disappears in The sky over Brazil

Residents in Brazil were baffled when they saw a strange white object appears and disappears in the sky on December 5, 2016.

Some witnesses are convinced the object was a cloaked UFO others say it was just a natural sky phenomenon.

It seems like more and more strange things happen in the skies throughout the world, and it has nothing to do with aliens or UFOs.

More likely, a large and distant unknown rogue planet may be adding a wobble to the solar system.

A planet which is not only responsible for the unusual events and sightings in the skies, but also responsible for the unusual tilt of the sun by about 6 degrees compared to the sun’s equator.

clustering of objects in the Kuiper belt and the unusual way they orbit the Sun.

Now Planet Nine predictors Konstantin Batygin and Mike Brown of Caltech, along with graduate student Elizabeth Bailey, offer another piece of evidence for the elusive sphere’s existence: It adds “wobble” to the solar system, they say, tilting it in relation to the sun.

“Because Planet Nine is so massive and has an orbit tilted compared to the other planets, the solar system has no choice but to slowly twist out of alignment,” lead author Bailey said in a statement.

Huge Ring Shaped Object detected in the Inner Solar System

A strange object what looks like an “Ezekiel Wheel” passing Saturn has been detected on the Stereo-A Spacecraft on August 22/23, 2016 and it appears to be headed into the inner solar system.

In 2011 the Stereo-B Spacecraft captured a tetrahedral shaped anomaly which came from the same region in space as this new anomaly. NASA at the time stated that the tetrahedral shaped anomaly was an imaging artifact due to a reflection inside the spacecraft.

Now, this new 2016 anomaly is circular shaped, actually there are two circles at almost the same size next to each other and may be connected with each other makes it hard to believe that this object is another internal reflection.

According to Mrmb333 this object is heading towards earth, but personally I doubt if that is the case.

But there is something else going on, this week, for the first time since the Cold War, the German government told its citizens to stockpile food and water in case of a catastrophe, followed by the Czech government who also warned its population to prepare for the worst.

And on May 31, during a speech at the FEMA National Response Coordination Center in Washington, Obama said that every American is responsible for preparing for disasters, and that includes “having an evacuation plan” and “having a fully stocked disaster supply kit.”

I do not know whether all these warnings have something to do with the threat of a terror attack, a nuclear or a natural disaster or a threat from outer space, but whatever the object is and what it is doing is certainly questionable.
