Visible Light Spectrum from Alien Planet Measured for 1st Time

April 22, 2015

Astronomers have detected an exoplanet’s visible-light spectrum directly for the first time ever, a milestone that could help bring many other alien worlds into clearer focus down the road.

(editor’s note: I believe the planet is to the left of the star in the center)

The scientists used the HARPS instrument on the European Southern Observatory’s 3.6-meter telescope at the La Silla Observatory in Chile to study the spectrum of visible light reflected off the exoplanet 51 Pegasi b, which lies about 50 light-years from Earth in the constellation Pegasus.

51 Pegasi b, a “hot Jupiter” gas giant that orbits close to its parent star, was spotted in 1995, when it became the first alien world ever discovered around a sunlike star. (The first exoplanets of any type were found in 1992 around a superdense, rotating stellar corpse called a pulsar.)

Researchers most often study exoplanet atmospheres by analyzing the starlight that passes through them when worlds cross their stars’ faces from Earth’s perspective. This method, known as transit spectroscopy, is restricted to use on systems in which the stars and planets align.

 

The new strategy used with 51 Pegasi b, on the other hand, does not depend on planetary transits and could thus find broader applicability, researchers said.

The technique offers other scientific advantages as well.

“This type of detection technique is of great scientific importance, as it allows us to measure the planet’s real mass and orbital inclination, which is essential to more fully understand the system,” study lead author Jorge Martins, of the Instituto de Astrofísica e Ciências do Espaço (IA) and the Universidade do Porto in Portugal, said in a statement.

“It also allows us to estimate the planet’s reflectivity, or albedo, which can be used to infer the composition of both the planet’s surface and atmosphere,” Martins added.

The new data suggest that 51 Pegasi b is highly reflective, a bit larger in diameter than Jupiter and about half as massive as our solar system’s biggest planet, researchers said.

The new observations by HARPS (which is short for High Accuracy Radial velocity Planet Searcher) provide a vital proof of concept for the new technique, which could really come into its own when employed with instruments on bigger telescopes, such as the European Southern Observatory’s Very Large Telescope (VLT), researchers said.

“We are now eagerly awaiting first light of the ESPRESSO spectrograph on the VLT so that we can do more detailed studies of this and other planetary systems,” said co-author Nuno Santos, also of the IA and Universidade do Porto.

The new study was published today (April 22) in the journal Astronomy & Astrophysics.

We spoke once about the Ness Sea, therefore Loch Ness in Scotland, in connection with so-called Nessie, whereby it is supposed to deal with a saurian, for which, however, up until now, no proof of existence could be brought forth.
But you have said that such an animal does actually exist in Loch Ness and that all that, therefore, it is not about a fairy tale.
I would like to see the beast.
Can you take me to it sometime?

109. Actually, two parent animals and a young do exist.
110. It thereby deals with an aquatic predatory saurian, therefore about Plesiosaurus which have sustained themselves for many generations.
111. However, proving their existence will be very difficult, because the animals themselves only seldom make their way into the higher waters, or even to the waters’ surface in such a way that they can be sighted.

Let’s Talk About Spiritual Evolution

April 12, 2015

Arie says:

The Spiritual Teachings is the most clear and present source of truth and wisdom – it is the ultimate tool. if I may, I would like to second Michael and perhaps offer that we begin to study the teachings so that we might all learn from each other, help each other understand the lessons, grow and wake up together (each according to their ability and contribution).

Here are some light and inspiring ways to learn/study/share Ruben Dari of the Canadian Group has created which I find to be a good spark driver for deeper dives.

Over the past few years I have had The Might of the Thought, The Psyche and the GOTT at my bed side, in my study room and in my car….I would SO welcome an opportunity where we can all study the Spiritual Teachings together, share insights, perspectives, understanding and techniques that work for the furthering of our spiritual evolution. I echo Michael’s recommendation and resonate with it deeply.

What NASA May or May Not Know About Mars

April 8, 2015

“…Many years will pass before terrestrial human beings find the proof that their former Ur-Ur-Ur-ancestors came to the SOL system from alien solar and planetary systems to settle on Mars before emigrating to Earth. When they do, the first proof may also be found that mankind’s earliest ancestors — the genetically-manipulated people, or rather their descendants — were refugees and exiles who originated in the Sirius regions. This proof will shake up the scientific community and, even more so, the religious world; it will prompt the need for great changes. That moment will come chiefly when artifacts from a previous human civilization are found on Mars, with pyramids and sculptures such as the so-called Mars faces representing but a mere fraction of the entire discovery.

The findings and the message to terrestrials regarding the discoveries on Mars will be the factors one day in the collapse of the legendary picture the terrestrials’ former ancestors had formed of their heritage. Many negators of the truth will realize with frightening clarity that terrestrial Man did not originate on the planet Earth and, furthermore, he is not the only human life form in the Universe…

…Nonetheless, space exploration will continue and a new world discovered in this process; a new Earth that will be suitable for maintaining human terrestrials.

The actual period when space travel and with its many related discoveries commence will begin already in the very near future, however. Overall, expeditions into space will be successful, e.g., terrestrials will discover, or rather locate, ancient human traces and effects left behind on Mars. This will present sufficient reason for terrestrials to build, furbish and fly new spaceships with even greater ranges into the vastness of space, to make ever greater, more interesting and, especially, more significant discoveries. Initially, these spaceships will travel over relatively long periods of time until propulsion systems are developed that make super-speed space travel without time shifts feasible.

Spaceships reaching velocities above the speed of light, indeed, speeds several million times the speed of light, will one day become the rule. But until this occurs, several hundreds of years, even millennia, will pass. Still, these aforementioned predictions shall occur in the near and somewhat more distant future and mankind will not be kept waiting too much longer; even elderly people alive today will experience the commencement of these predictions.

The discovery, refurbishing and renewed operation of ancient extraterrestrial artifacts and stations on Mars in the not-too-distant future, and much later in other places as well, will be accomplished by our more distant descendants…”

A Plejaran explains the Billy Meier UFO Anomalies

March 31, 2015

Contact Report 251/602

Ptaah:

You must continue to keep this secret; do not speak about it under any circumstances. We are only permitted to elaborate to the point as our withdrawal from Earth is linked with the immediate future and related events, in which we are not allowed to interfere in any form so that we may protect and keep close reigns on the secret regarding our own culture and region where we live.

This is tied in also with the fact that some matters are impending. On one hand, we were able to foresee them but, on the other hand, they are the reason for our withdrawal, while events that have been unfolding on Earth for several decades now were part of our assignments. We have fulfilled this task, along with the many others we were obligated to look after, and you have played a very important role in this scenario of making public, worldwide, the so-called UFO phenomenon, as terrestrials have labeled it.

You alone made it possible to promulgate this subject matter worldwide and provoke the controversy to the extent that it is not only religious and pseudo-esoteric sectarians, fanatics, gullible individuals, madmen, etc., who preoccupy themselves with the subject. Finally, for some time now, a great variety of scientists, governmental agencies, military services and governments have also begun to seriously preoccupy themselves with this subject, a fact that could not have been accomplished without your help and great resulting effort.

Actually, alone through your efforts was this successful launching of the worldwide UFO controversy possible, for which we all express our appreciation to you – a recognition you had to really struggle for, when I think of all the harm that came crashing down upon you. And it is irrelevant whether they were health related or associated with the defamations, abusive language, assassination attempts, diatribes of hatred and other things to which we, unfortunately, had to contribute our share, as you know. Had it not been for these occurrences, the UFO controversy would never have come about and scientists, as well as the military and governments, among others, would not have become seriously interested in it.

In your defense I am permitted today to speak officially about these matters and the fact that we used special techniques to analyze and evaluate in great detail the movie and photo montages, along with the movie trick photography used by all those bogus and deceitful, purported contactees or UFO observers. We found that their falsified movie and photo material appealed to terrestrial humans, particularly to those so-called UFO experts who call themselves ufologists and the like, and this even includes some well-respected scientists. The absurdity of the falsifications, and the people who believed them, is stunning yet extremely effective.

For this reason, we executed maneuvers with our genuinely existing flying objects, e.g., jerky pendulum movements and certain skipping and floating movements, which ordinarily are not a part of our flying objects’ normal movements and flight techniques. Instead, they appeared like those ridiculous, abrupt pendulum and strange swaying movements of the manipulated movies and photos by the UFO swindlers, liars and charlatans. The fact that we chose to execute these movement types is based on the reasoning that they, in particular, would result in the worldwide, fierce UFO controversy which resulted in many hardships for you, of course.

You were accused of fraud, deceit, charlatanry and, indeed, dishonesty. You were further charged with constructing models and then photographing and filming them. Often we felt very sorry for you, but were unable to change any of this.

Only by executing certain flight maneuvers, which you then were able to film, photograph and disseminate throughout the globe, was the worldwide UFO controversy ensured that led to the previously mentioned outcome. In the future, they will also bring about additional and by now urgently needed results.

It may be some consolation to you now to know that everything has occurred with the desired and intended outcome, and that you are now the most important person in matters related to contacts with extraterrestrials and UFO affairs – you probably are the most famous personality worldwide in these matters.

Exoplanets detected by Kepler expand with Titus-Bode-based predictions for Earth twins

March 23, 2015

“In the observable universe there are about 100 billion galaxies. Thus there are approximately 1022 stars in the observable universe and twice that many planets in circumstellar habitable zones in the universe.

That’s a lot of real estate for alien development. Not all of these habitable zone planets will be wet and rocky like the Earth, but a fair fraction (about 30%) should be.”

When Captain Cook sailed into Botany Bay in 1770, we did not know how many planets were in our solar system. We only knew about Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn.

Based on the orbits of these planets, 18th century European astronomers invented what is now called the Titius-Bode relation. It’s a simple empirical relation that describes the relative distances between the planets and the sun. It predicted the orbit of another planet beyond Saturn and another planet in the gap between Mars and Jupiter.

In 1781, William Herschel found Uranus – without relying on the Titius-Bode relation – but he found it in the orbit beyond Saturn where the Titius-Bode relation said it would be.

After this success, astronomers started looking for a planet between Mars and Jupiter in the orbit predicted by the Titus-Bode relation.

In 1801, Giuseppi Piazzi found a planet in the predicted position and called it Ceres. The Titius-Bode relation was on a roll.

But when Neptune was found in 1846 it wasn’t exactly where the Titus-Bode relation predicted it would be. And over the years so many small bodies have been found in orbits between Mars and Jupiter that Ceres was plutoed – demoted to an “asteroid”.

And so the Titus-Bode relation lost its shine. And like an old horse, it was put out to pasture. It was only taken seriously by numerologists and cranks.

The search for extrasolar planets

But then along came NASA’s Kepler Space Telescope. Over the past few years Kepler has been able to detect thousands of exoplanets and hundreds of multi-exoplanet systems.

Along with my PhD student Tim Bovaird and Master’s student Steffen Jacobsen, we reasoned that if the TB relation had been such a useful (if somewhat imperfect) guide for predicting planets in our solar system, maybe it would be useful in predicting planets in the new exoplanetary systems detected by Kepler.

We checked the hundred or so systems where Kepler had found at least a few planets and we found that the majority of these exoplanetary systems adhered to the Titus-Bode relation even somewhat better than our solar system did.

Thus, we became convinced that the horse still had some miles left in her – that the semi-taboo Titus-Bode relation could provide useful hints about the periods of as-yet-undetected planets around other stars.

Resurrection

Last year we used a generalised Titus-Bode relation to analyse 68 multi-planet systems with four or more detected exoplanets. We made predictions for the existence of more planets in these systems, based on the Titus-Bode relation.

So far, 5% of our predictions have been confirmed. This may sound like a small percentage, but given the inability of the Kepler telescope to see Earth-sized planets or smaller, a 5% detection rate is what you would expect to see if all the predictions were true.

Almost all of the exoplanets detected by Kepler are larger than Earth and very close to their host stars. This is almost certainly a selection bias.

It is very difficult for the Kepler telescope to spot planets that are far enough away from their host stars to be in the habitable zone (where the temperatures are in the range where H2O will be liquid water).

Using the Titus-Bode relation is a controversial indirect technique, but I think it’s the best one we have if we are interested in answering the question: How many planets (on average) are in the habitable zones of stars?

How many potentially habitable planets?

Our answer to this question is 2 ± 1 and was published this week in the Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society. The figures (above and below) illustrate our result.

With about 300 billion stars in our galaxy, our result means there are 600 ± 300 billion planets in circumstellar habitable zones in our galaxy.

In the observable universe there are about 100 billion galaxies. Thus there are approximately 1022 stars in the observable universe and twice that many planets in circumstellar habitable zones in the universe.

That’s a lot of real estate for alien development. Not all of these habitable zone planets will be wet and rocky like the Earth, but a fair fraction (about 30%) should be. Now we need some zippy interstellar spaceships to colonise and over-populate all these worlds before the aliens do.

Proof Ceres lights is a Mining or Research base

March 14, 2015

According to Captain Bill

ceres3

WE ARE DISCLOSURE a poem

March 11, 2015

SO, hopefully you’ve given up on getting the latest watch or cellphone
And started to wonder if we are alone
From our little blue planet to the star Alycone.
And after this marvelous coming attraction,
You’ll understand why everything else is a distraction.

Did you ever ask your friend as a kid if we would find out where the aliens hid?
Did you ever wonder in the vastness of space if we are the only intelligent race?
After a few years of research and reading every day I found that we are alone in no way.
If life on our planet hasn’t got you depressed, wait till you see how much evidence is suppressed.
We have had visitors for millions of years who came and went with the same hopes and fears.
The reasons were love, the reasons were war, the reasons- to search, discover, explore….

First there is Ptaah, please give him praise,
Let’s hope Errans keep visiting for many years and days.
Some of his friends are Semjase and Quetzel, who frequently visit the land of beer and pretzel.
But seriously, with over 700 visits, the Errans left 600 contact reports as exhibits.
They also let one man photograph, film, and record them,
And that is why religions and governments abhor them.

We wave our flags and salute Uncle Sam, not knowing the whole time it’s all a big scam.
And trillions of dollars are wasted on weapons and the so called secret space program.
But before you try to come up with a rebuttal, why do you think they discontinued the shuttle?
The reason is simple, as Dr. Greer says, it’s the biggest leak since the Exxon Valdez.
They don’t fuel their ships with gasoline. They have fuel and propulsion that’s entirely clean.
So every time you pay your bill, just know that the oil industry’s getting its fill.
The blood of the Earth is being sucked dry, and we are the suckers, and that is no lie.

We don’t have to have cancer, we don’t have to have AIDS. We don’t have to fight wars, or battles or crusades.
These humans have messages to perk up our ears. And we should listen to people who live 1000 years!
We can no longer believe the media or news, or churches or armies or any of that ruse. They have taken the truth and technology and clues, and used it to kill and control and abuse.
I don’t care if you’re pissed and I hope you get mad, because the worst of the offenders is much worse than bad.

It’s the Catholic church, the Vatican in Rome, who knew all along the truth of our home.
The biggest, most slanderous, historical libel is none other than your so called “quote” holy bible.
It’s not my fault they changed the phrasing. And If a being came out of the sky, I’d think it was amazing.
Here is the quote “gods” to honest truth- those angels were extraterrestrials, and this is the proof:
It’s written down and explained to the finest granule, and the document’s called the Talmud of Jmmanuel.

They could not pit people to fight nation against nation, if everyone knew the true Laws of Creation.
And almost everyone out there would call me a liar, except for the one-armed farmer, Billy Meier.
There are artifacts and tools and pieces of the past, but everything is scooped up and hidden real fast.
Roswell was real, it really did crash. And they want you to believe in that swamp gas trash, or a weather balloon, or a flock of birds. And one thousand other kinds of phrases or words.
If you think my stories come out of thin air, just watch the interviews of David Adair.

Isn’t it all clicking? Doesn’t it make sense? They only real enemy is the Department of Defense.
The NSA, the alphabet soup, there is no low to which they won’t stoop.
They know the gigs up and the truth is Verboten.
And I can’t wait to see the real secrets of Snowden.

There’s only so much I can say in just a few minutes,
But when it comes to E.T. life, there’s hardly any limits.
Our galaxy has 587 billion suns, so how many systems have life? There are tons!
7 million planets have life of some kind
And half of these have human life to find!
There are 3.67 million human civilizations, and we think we’re hot stuff with 195 nations.

You do have to wake up and turn off your phone. There’s so much to learn about what is unknown.
We need to get out and spend time outside. And appreciate the planet on which we reside.
We need to look higher- look up at the stars, and ponder the pyramids and bases on Mars.
We need to ask questions and get to the truth. You can be a detective, reporter, or sleuth.
We must understand our galactic history, and everything else will cease being a mystery.
I’m giving you tools, I’m giving you hope. I’m giving our government a noose made of rope.
Declare your freedom. Declare your independence. Study the ways of love and transcendence.

So will you take action? Do we take to the streets?
Do we demand justice and remove the elites?
They are responsible for holding us down. For trying to hold us underwater til we drown.

Reclaim your consciousness. Take back your rights.
I want you to shine brighter than UFO lights.
For everyone wondering when they’ll get closure,
I hate to admit it, but we are disclosure.
