WHAT’S IN A NAME? by Nick Pope. Since the dawn of time, people have seen strange things in the sky, but setting aside Biblical references to “fiery chariots”, and Twentieth Century terms such as “scareships”, “foo fighters”, “ghost rockets” and “ghost aeroplanes”, our story starts in 1947 with Kenneth Arnold’s sighting of nine strange objects over the Cascade Mountains in Washington State. When describing the motion (not the shape, as is often believed), he said that they moved in an odd, jerky way, “like a saucer skipped across water”. The media adapted this quote into “flying saucer” and a modern mystery acquired a new name. More…

UFOS: DO SOME OF THEM COME FROM AN INNER EARTH “PARADISE”? by Sean Casteel. Do UFOs, or flying saucers, originate from an Inner Earth Paradise? That may sound like it’s kind of a stretch, but a selection of books from Tim Beckley’s Global Communications and Inner Light Publications make the argument that they most certainly do, eschewing any beliefs that the mysterious visitors come from outer space at all.

BEYOND AREA 51 AGAIN by Nick Redfern. One of the biggest puzzles concerning secret military-, government- and intelligence-based facilities is this: Why do so many of these classified installations seemingly attract far more than their fair share of UFOs? There are, I believe, several possibilities. The first is that if the stories of crashed UFOs in the hands of officialdom are valid, then it may be the case that what we are seeing in the skies above these bases are attempts by military project personnel to test-fly captured UFOs.

WILL COMET “SIDING SPRING” DEEP IMPACT MARS?by Diane Tessman. While Earth awaits Comet ISON, the Red Planet awaits a comet called Siding Spring. There is the possibility that Siding Spring will graze or even hit Mars in a deep, catastrophic impact. This possibility is not the likely outcome of Siding Spring’s passage but it cannot be ruled out. The date of impact would be October 19th, 2014, at 11:45 a.m. Pacific Time (18:45 GTM). More…

UFO CONFERENCE TO BE HELD IN BETTY ANDEREASSON, OF BETTY AND BARNEY HILL, BIRTHPLACE! by Roger Marsh. New England UFO conference town has historical ties to major cases. The first New England UFO Conference will be set in Leominster, MA, on October 26, 2013, according to organizer Steve Firmani, with some very famous background ties. The town is known as the birthplace of UFO abductee Betty Andreasson – from the Betty and Barney Hill case that took place in rural New Hampshire in September 1961. And this is the hometown of former Air Force Security Officer Steve LaPlume who was involved in the now-famous Rendlesham Forest Incident in late December of 1980 – now well detailed in the book, Left At East Gate. More…

MOUNT ADAMS WILDIFE ENCOUNTER BRIDGES GAP BETWEEN WORLDS by Jon Kelly. A team from the nearby ECETI Ranch including UFO videographer Jon Kelly returned from the reportedly potentially active stratovolcano with video recordings of a Silver Fox, a high-powered laser beam transmission over 13 miles distance and tales of contact with other-worldly entities. Originally broadcast on “As You Wish” talk radio, this updated version includes video footage to accompany the witness descriptions. More…

MORE 1960s UFO INVASIONS OVER OKLAHOMA by Doc Vega. During the volatile 1960’s a burning controversy that eclipsed civil rights issues, the radical challenge to the establishment, and protests to the Vietnam War had loomed over the skies of the United States. With the cold war era still in full swing and as much as the US military tried to turn its back on the UFO phenomena, the more the presence of an unknown mystery imposed its enigmatic presence. Even with the tongue and cheek coverage of news services, and the suppression of the US Air Force in its refusal to acknowledge an enduring paradox, sightings continued unabated without any signs of slowing down in frequency. The unknown was here to stay whether authorities wanted to acknowledge that maddening fact or not!

LATEST LANDMARK CLIMATE CHANGE REPORT HAS IPCC SCRAMBLING FOR EXPLANATIONS by Tony Elliott . The report consists of five findings, the first cover being that Climate Change isn’t limited to rising temperatures but a wide range of natural phenomena showing signs. These are as they stated.

THE DAY OF THE DARSHAN by Louis Hart. It is well known that the extraterrestrial hypothesis (ETH) is among the most acceptable propositions with regard to the nature of the UFO phenomenon. However, there are those who feel that it barely offers an adequate explanation for certain aspects of the problem, such as the absence or scant detection of the phenomenon in space with astronomic devices, which contrasts with what occurs within our own atmosphere.

SUNSET OF THE GOLDEN DAWN by Peter Fotis Kapnistos. A martial obligation of the House of Lords was to shield the British Crown from burden or blame. The entrée of the Illuminati served a strategic goal in this state of affairs. For as the Vatican had previously done, the recently picked lords and ladies could exploit lower groups as human shields. Bavarian bankers and “collection-barons” could unassumingly redirect all detrimental criticism — to gypsies and Jews. Given that a Germanic household had few misgivings about keeping the title of the English monarchy, its well-to-do lineage could also provoke the uncertainties of Semitic laypeople.

BOOK REVIEW: OPENING TO A NEW REALITY by Warwick Associates . Humanity is on the verge of enormous change. More than a paradigm shift, human consciousness is engaged in a process of integration with a higher mind. The process is occurring through encounters with non-ordinary reality that are known as high strangeness events. What exactly are these events? They are incidents that defy the laws that govern our physics and the expectation of our experience. They include interactions with UFO, orbs of light, strange sounds, human and mysteriously made crop circles, and altered states of awareness and/or perception. More…

ROBERT BIGELOW INVESTIGATES REDDING RANCH by Norio Hayakawa. The National Institute For Discovery Sciences (NIDS) (headed by Las Vegas billionaire Robert Bigelow, who also owns Bigelow Aerospace) reportedly had made an investigation earlier (ca. 1998) regarding this ranch. In retrospect, the following report itself by the National Institute For Discovery Sciences (ca. 1998) regarding this ranch seems to be more suspicious now: (QUOTE, from NIDS report) More…
