Observatory Sudden Closing and FBI Visit Spark Heightened Speculation

New Mexico observatory's sudden closure sparks wild speculation

The temporary closure of a New Mexico observatory last week sparked wide-ranging theories, especially after reports that federal authorities were involved.
The Sunspot Solar Observatory, located near the Sacramento Mountains, closed over an unspecified security issue, the facility said in a statement posted to Facebook on Sunday.
“Sunspot apologizes for the continued closure of the facilities,” the statement said. “The Association of Universities for Research in Astronomy (AURA) is addressing a security issue at the National Solar Observatory facility at Sacramento Peak, New Mexico and has decided to temporarily vacate the facility as a precautionary measure.

“AURA, which manages Sacramento Peak with funding from NSF (National Science Foundation), is working with the proper authorities on this issue. We have no further comment at this time.”
Otero County Sheriff Benny House told the Alamogordo Daily News last week the sheriff’s office was asked to stand by and mentioned that the FBI was involved.
“The FBI is refusing to tell us what’s going on,” House told the newspaper. “We’ve got people up there (at Sunspot) that requested us to standby while they evacuate it. Nobody would really elaborate on any of the circumstances as to why. The FBI were up there. What their purpose was nobody will say.”

House said there were a lot of unanswered questions over Sunspot’s closure.
“But for the FBI to get involved that quick and be so secretive about it, there was a lot of stuff going on up there,” House told the newspaper. “There was a Blackhawk helicopter, a bunch of people around antennas and work crews on towers but nobody would tell us anything.”
It was unclear when the observatory was going to re-open and workers decided to evacuate the facility as a “precautionary measure,” AURA spokeswoman Shari Lifson told the Alamogordo Daily News. Lifson couldn’t comment as to whether the FBI was involved.
Frank Fisher, an FBI spokesman, couldn’t confirm or deny the agency’s involvement, according to the Albuquerque Journal.
The mysterious nature of the closure sparked all kinds of speculation on the internet.
“When the aliens invade we have nowhere to evacuate to anyway; the truth will be our destiny,” Gene Alexander wrote on the observatory’s Facebook page, according to the Kansas City Star.
"There was a Blackhawk helicopter, a bunch of people around antennas and work crews on towers but nobody would tell us anything."

“Maybe a celestial body that we have not encountered in a long while for thousands of years is finally making its way back into our solar system,” John Pleites-Sandoval hypothesized.
Whatever is happening at the observatory, one employee told the Albuquerque Journal they weren’t too concerned just yet because they didn’t have enough information.
“That’s what happens when you do something and don’t tell anybody why,” the employee said.

UFO's Are Attracted to Natural Disasters

UFO sightings have been filmed near many natural disasters. Given the fact that we are entering into a strong hurricane season here is a video that captures some UFO's that are attracted to such events.

Footage includes UFO sightings during the devastating Oklahoma tornado, Arizona dust storms, and Hurricane Sandy. Footage also includes a UFO appearing on a live news broadcast,
strange sky glow phenomena, as well as UFOs captured on military night vision cameras. With the appearance of UFOs near catastrophic events - is it possible the alien conspiracy and disasters are somehow connected to a common goal?

Bizarre Square UFO Photo Taken Near Charlotte NC

A mysterious square aircraft hovering in night sky ‘scared me to death,’ NC man says

Javion Hill says he took this photo on U.S. 74 southwest of Charlotte on Aug. 18. 
Another alleged UFO sighting near Charlotte has appeared on Facebook and in this case, it was posted by a husband and father who says he doesn’t necessarily believe in UFOs.
Javion Hill, 35, of Kings Mountain, North Carolina, says he took several photos of the object during a storm on the night of Aug. 18, as he drove on U.S. 74 southwest of Charlotte.
The images feature something square hovering above the treeline, with its edges fringed in lights. Hill told the Charlotte Observer the craft frightened him to the point that he didn’t sleep that night.
“I was on my way home with my wife on the speaker phone, and it looked like there was a tornado coming, so I was trying to take a picture of the clouds for my wife,” says Hill.

Florida Politician Won't Back Down From Her Alien Abduction Belief

Florida Politician Was Abducted By Aliens

Bettina Rodriguez Aguilera won't back down from her abduction experience.

MIAMI — U.S. House candidate Bettina Rodriguez Aguilera has a long list of accomplishments to bolster her campaign in Florida. But she is perhaps best known for claiming that she was abducted by space aliens as a child.

Rodriguez Aguilera is a longshot in the race for the Miami-area seat being vacated by retiring Republican Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen. Yet last weekend, the Miami Herald endorsed her for the GOP nomination in the Tuesday primary out of a field of nine candidates.

In an interview, she said she is grateful for the endorsement and that her tale of kidnapping by aliens does not define her.

“It has nothing to do with what I have done. It happened when I was 7 years old,” she said. “I am so proud of the Herald and what they did.”

Rodriguez Aguilera says she was taken aboard a spaceship as a young girl by blond extraterrestrials who resembled the Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio de Janeiro. She says they told her that the “center of the world's energy is Africa” and that thousands of non-human skulls were once discovered in a cave on the Mediterranean island of Malta.

She has said she witnessed paranormal activity since then and saw a UFO at 17. She also said she has been in touch with the aliens telepathically long after the abduction.

Even if it’s hard to believe there’s a starman waiting in the sky, Rodriguez Aguilera won’t back down.

“I stick to my guns when I believe in something,” she said.

A look at History Channel Upcoming UFO Series

The History Channel’s scripted Project Blue Book arrives later this year

By now, San Diego Comic-Con is far more than a series of reveals for high-profile film and television projects and a giant, geek flea market. Over the years, it’s increasingly become home to immersive pop-up activations that bring to life a tiny sliver of a world for fans. 

This year, the History Channel brought with it a declassified bunker experience to promote its upcoming scripted UFO series Project Blue Book.

Some backstory: At the height of the Cold War, the United States Air Force began a project to document and investigate sightings of Unidentified Flying Objects in an effort to determine if said unexplained sightings posed any sort of threat to national security. Over the course of the study, between 1952 and 1969, it collected more than 12,000 reports. That project is the basis for History’s new show, which dramatizes some of the sightings reported to the Air Force. This year’s activation transported us back to the Cold War — or at least, into the bunker where it all went down — to allow us to report our own unexplained sightings to the government.

UFOs and alien abductions are both long-running staples in science fiction and fantasy circles, running the gamut from Steven Spielberg’s 1977 film Close Encounters of the Third Kind to the SCI FI channel’s 2002 miniseries Taken. In recent years, we’ve seen a number of channels that traditionally focus on documentary programming take the jump into scripted dramas that draw heavily from history or nature: the Paramount Network is currently airing Yellowstone, the National Geographic Channel created Mars and Genius (and ordered a series based on Richard Preston’s The Hot Zone), the Discovery Channel aired Manhunt: Unabomber and Klondike, while the History Channel has produced Knightfall, Six, and Vikings. Its latest drama, Project Blue Book falls under the same umbrella: a series rooted somewhat in history. It’ll star Aidan Gillen from Game of Thrones and Captain America: First Avenger’s Neal McDonough.

UFO- Sighting forms
In San Diego, our first stop was to file our report to the project’s intake personnel. We were issued clearance badges and sat down in an army tent modeled after those of the 1950s. From there, we were asked to describe our encounter, filling out a standardized form — one that a rep noted was nearly identical to the forms used by Project Blue Book operatives for civilian and military UFO sightings — that was then handed off to a sketch artist. I recounted an experience of being lost in the woods, surrounded by bright lights in the air, before blacking out and waking up surrounded by fire.

From there, we were ushered into a clean room where we were briefed on some of the reports from the project’s vast files: sightings from across the country, just a handful of stories of lights in the skies. Once informed of the various sightings from across the country, we were ushered into a busy facility. White-shirted government agents poured over papers, while a bank of computers lined the opposite wall. We were invited to type out a message, which we were told would be beamed out to space, to try and contact the aliens that we described in our encounters. The activation takes down your phone number, and after the event, I received a text confirming that my message — ALIENS, Y U DO? — had already traveled 10,974,000 miles from Earth.

Exiting the facility, we were approached by a shifty “man in black” type who conspiratorially pulled us aside to stress that we were “not being told the whole truth” by the officials inside, that hundreds of the reports contained in Project Blue Book remain classified to this day, because many just “couldn’t be explained” by the operation. After he let us go, we were handed the illustration that had been drawn up by the earlier room full of agents sketching out the sightings that con-goers had reported to them.

The entire experience wasn’t as extensive as some of the other activations that we’ve seen — like last year’s Westworld and Blade Runner 2049 activations, for example — but they do highlight how companies or studios can bring their projects to life in a neat way. History’s Project Blue Book stood out because it’s not just something that you walk through (though the initial “scanning” process and subsequent viewing room, where real accounts were projected on the walls and accompanied by sound recordings and effects, had a very Disneyland Haunted Mansion vibe): you inject yourself into the story by recounting an experience you really had, or make one up, which is then turned into a neat memento that you can take home after the convention.

Alien and UFO Encounter Recorded from 1890

Lafayette Indiana had its first Recorded'Close Encounter' in 1890s

This encounter was recorded by a Lafayette Indiana repoter back in 1890. It is certainly something to think about. 

"The strangest experience of my life," said a well known young man in conversation with a Journal representative last evening, "came to me so unexpectedly Saturday evening that it startled me almost out of my wits for a moment.

"I had been out wheeling [bicycling] and was on my way home. I was on the road between Stockwell and Crane, the new name the post office had assigned to Culver station and was treading at a pretty lively pace to get home in time to make a few purchases before the stores closed.

"Night had fallen and it must have been between 8 and 9 o'clock. The road was deserted and the only break in the monotony of my lonely ride was the occasional glimpse of a light shining from the window of a farmhouse.

"My eyes were bent on the road in front of me and my thoughts were busy with matters common to the thoughts of most young men. I was conscious of the fact that it was dark, that I was alone and that I was moving. Beyond these conditions my mind had but little to do with the materiality of my surroundings.

"All at once there was a change in my mental status. I was brought back to a realization of earthly things by an unearthly occurrence. A loud, hissing noise very similar to the escape of steam from a locomotive sounded so near me that I was startled into alertness. I looked for a railroad and the headlight of an engine, expecting to see the latter at my elbow, but saw neither.

"Before I could get the engine idea out of my mind my hat was almost lifted from my head by the wind of an object passing over my head. I released my hold on the handlebars of my wheel and threw my hands to catch my hat. Just then my wheel struck a rock or something and I was dismounted in a trice, falling on my back on the road.

"As my eyes turned upward they met a sight that made me wish I had fallen into a deep hole with a cover on it. Only a few yards away to my right in a small meadow, I saw the strangest object that any mortal has ever seen.

"It looked to me like a perfecto-shaped cigar about 20 feet long and perhaps 8 feet in diameter at the biggest point. Beneath it was a box-shaped arrangement apparently 6 by 3 feet in dimension.

"This box or car was suspended from the cigar-shaped arrangement by a network of tubular wires. The cigar-shaped affair was pointing toward me and from the end there flashed a large light whose brilliance seemed to be much more powerful than an electric light. It was a scintillating blaze and different colors came and went with startling rapidity. It was a beautiful thing, but it hurt my eyes and besides, my nerves were so badly upset that I was hardly in a condition to appreciate the beautiful.

"Two men were standing on the ground by the side of the strange object and seemed to be busy with several of the wires leading from the lower part of the queer object to the upper part. They spoke occasionally and I heard one remark, 'I wonder where we are?' He spoke with a foreign accent and I thought at the time that he was some French scientist.

"His companion replied in excellent English and I supposed he was an American.

"I was still lying on the ground on my back and the strangers had not noticed me. I was beginning to recover from my fright and my curiosity was taking its place. Convinced that I was within a few yards of the mysterious airship that has been exciting so much interest and comment, I decided to go to the men and make some inquiries.

"I rose hastily to my feet, but at the first step the men saw me, lights flashed from both ends of the cigar-shaped arrangement and in another instant, the object was rising obliquely into the air. It rose like a thing of life and was many hundred feet high before the time elapsed that it takes me to tell it.

"I watched it a moment and then rubbed my eyes to assure myself I was awake. Then I picked up my wheel, took a small pull at an amber-colored fluid I had purchased at Lebanon and then I pedaled for home as fast as I could."
