Are There Alien Messages In Our DNA Strands?

SYDNEY - Forget waiting for ET to call - the most likely place to find an alien message is in our DNA, according to an expert in Australia. Professor Paul Davies, from the Australian Centre for Astrobiology at Macquarie University, believes a cosmic greeting card could have been left in every human cell. The coded message would only be discovered once the human race had the technology to read and understand it. Writing in New Scientist magazine, Davies said the idea should be considered seriously. For more than 40 years astronomers have been sweeping the skies with radio telescopes hoping to catch a signal from an alien civilization. So far the search has been in vain. But Davies believes it is wrong to assume that extraterrestrials who may be hundreds of millions of years ahead of us technologically will have chosen to communicate by radio.

Leaving artifacts for humans to find once they are sufficiently evolved - like the obelisk in the movie 2001: A Space Odyssey - might be a more attractive strategy, he explained. But ensuring the survival of such an artifact over possibly millions of years would be difficult. A better solution would be to incorporate information into the human genome, allowing it to be copied and maintained over immense periods of time. One way to do this might be to deliver alien viruses which could infect cells with message-laden DNA, said Davies.

Scientists have recently discovered large sequences of "junk" DNA that contain no genes and appears to be very stable. "If ET has put a message into terrestrial organisms, this is surely where to look," said Davies. A computer could be used to find obvious attention-grabbing patterns within these stretches of DNA, he said. If a sequence of junk units of DNA were displayed as an array of pixels on a screen and produced a simple image "the presumption of tampering would be inescapable". The DNA code was easily big enough to contain a decent-sized novel or a potted history of the rise and fall of an alien civilization. Davies added: "Trying to second-guess alien communication strategies is fraught with uncertainty, so we should try everything we can afford. The truth may be out there somewhere - or it could be a lot closer to home." http://www.iol.co.za/index.php?set_id=1&click_id=588&art_id=qw1092026521143B252

NASA Scientist Sees Possible Mat of Martian Microbes

COLORADO -- By Leonard David Senior Space -- A future astronaut traipsing across the landing sites of the Mars Exploration Rovers – Spirit and Opportunity – might be squishing into a welcome mat of microbes, according to one NASA scientist. While the twin robots push ahead in scouring their real estate locations at Gusev Crater and Meridiani Planum, they leave behind a tantalizing trail of issues that need to be sorted out. One big unknown: Did life ever take root on Mars? And if so, is that planet home to living organisms today? So far, the life-on-Mars card has not played out. Rover scientists have seen nothing they regard as needing a biological explanation. But the twin robot landers weren't built to prowl around for life.

According to David McKay, chief scientist for astrobiology at NASA's Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas, visual evidence from the rovers is pretty enticing. The chronicle of Mars being viewed as a comfy habitat for biology is an unfolding one, and he led the research group that in August 1996 presented evidence of ancient life from Mars. The observations, they researchers said, strongly suggested primitive life may have existed on Mars more than 3.6 billion years ago. The NASA-funded team found the first organic molecules thought to be of Martian origin, several mineral features characteristic of biological activity, and possible microscopic fossils of primitive, bacteria-like organisms inside of an ancient Martian rock that fell to Earth as a meteorite – the often-called "Mars Rock" or as scientists like to professionally label it: ALH84001."I've seen the saga move from 20 or 30 years ago when virtually no one believed there was life on Mars…or that there was even water on Mars," McKay said last week. "Now the whole pendulum is swinging." Microbial mat McKay said it is now clear a lot of water flowed across Mars. Furthermore, there may still be water spurting out onto the planet at certain times. "The same pendulum may be swinging back toward life," he said. "We'll wait and see. These are exciting times. "The Mars rovers represent an incredibly successful mission, McKay said. Moreover, they seemingly have "uncovered" a major find. He points to pictures taken by the rovers that show areas of the martian surface disturbed by the retraction of landing airbags.

JPL.image: Note: Likeness of a fishhead above!

Patches of surface "acted as a cohesive blanket of some sort" when the airbags pulled back, McKay explains. "It didn't simply crack apart like a dried-up crust. But one possibility is that this is the fossilized remains of a biological mat of some sort," he speculated. The mat would be made up of bacterial parts and pieces. That claim can't be proven at this point, McKay said. "That's one reason you have to go get samples to be sure ."Swept under the Magic Carpet Mars has all the conditions for life: water, energy, and organic substances, McKay pointed out. "It is very clear that Mars was a habitable place in terms of life as we know it. Meteorite evidence show there was microbial life on Mars," McKay said. "And for all we know, there still could be. It's hard to kill off life once it has started. "Early in the mission of Spirit at Gusev Crater, scientists dubbed the region messed up by landing bags as the "Magic Carpet." The crumpled portion of the soil appeared to have been peeled away, as noted by rover scientists. "I think there's really something there," McKay told SPACE.com. "There is some cohesiveness to that material. Talk about the Magic Carpet just went away. I don't think it should have gone away. "He pointed to work being done at Guerrero Negro, Baja California by NASA's Ames Research Center on the evolution of a microbial community functioning in microbial mats. "They've also produced some in the lab. You pick that stuff up and it's kind of like a fabric. It is fairly cohesive. A crusty material like dura crust breaks up immediately," McKay said. Resolving power According to a NASA Ames web site, microbial mats here on Earth are important because their 3.4-billion-year fossil record indicates they are our planet's oldest known ecosystems. 9 August 04 snip

Perseids – May Cause Damage

On August 11, 2004, at about 21h UT, the Earth will pass through the dense core of the Perseid meteoroid stream from the parent comet Swift-Tuttle. The stream is calculated to pass within 0.0013 AU from the Earth's orbit and should provide plenty of shooting stars. Observation should be good throughout the night. There is a possibility that larger meteoroids will pass through our protecting atmosphere. There is always a danger from space, but fortunately our observation of the skies is increasing.

Alaska - Anti – Missile Interceptor Deployed

FORT GREELY – The United States deployed its first of six ground-based missile interceptors that would theoretically stop a nuclear missile attack. Deployment of the interceptor "marks the end of an era where we have not been able to defend our country against long-range ballistic missile attacks", said Major General John Holly, program director for the Ground-Based Midcourse Defense system. North Korea, China, Russia and Iran are believed to be building nuclear tipped missiles that could hit the US. The missile interceptor could likely be programmed to hit an incoming meteorite if needed, although, scientists argue about the effectiveness of this procedure. Actually diverting an incoming meteorite from hitting the Earth would be more effective.

Greenland – Ice Melting Fast

By Hamish Macdonell, The Scotsman reports, "Greenland's cover of ice is melting ten times quicker than previously thought, an increase that could lead to floods across the world," scientists have found. Newly published research shows an alarming rise in the rate of collapse of the massive Greenland ice-sheet as a result of global warming. Scientists now believe the ice-sheet is shrinking at the rate of ten meters a year, not the one meter previously thought. If the entire ice-sheet melts, the resulting flood waters would raise the level of global seas by seven meters, submerging large areas of land, including sea-level cities such as London. Greenland has the biggest ice-sheet in the northern hemisphere: almost 772,000 square miles of ice which is up to 1.9 miles thick, the base of which is below sea level. http://news.scotsman.com/scitech.cfm?id=891712004

New York - Strange Neon Light UFO

STATEN ISLAND --The witness has been going to visit a relative's house for BBQ nearly every weekend and had seen three sightings on three different days. The witness states, '"The latest occurred on July 17, 2004, at 5 PM, when we saw a sphere shaped craft hovering over my house at nearly 2500 feet." It did not move at all, and twice it was not visible and reappeared in the same original location. It was equipped with a self luminous white light like neon a fluorescent white. I did have my camcorder with me, but was hesitant on filming at first because it is very difficult to find small distant objects in the view finder and LCD. When I first pointed the camcorder into the sky and hit record I did not realize that the craft was in the bottom left corner of the viewfinder so I tried to zoom in thinking I did not yet find it. The other sightings were black spheres. The other sightings were also with my sister, and I again pointed out to look in the sky over the backyard which she did and saw what she described as "birds" possibly out of denial. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director www.UFOCenter.com

New Jersey - Disc

EDGE WATER – The witness was riding in a car with my friend along Water Street and reports seeing a curved UFO on July 17, 2004, when he noticed four lights that consistently lighted in the sky. Basically, it's a little curved circle with four lights, while two lights are on each curved side. These four lights attracted me, because they constantly had a little vibration, which is very impossible for a aircraft or a bug. And the light vibration with those four light fly in a curved shape from left to right. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director

BOUND BROOK -- The two objects flew from the right to the left, stopped for about ten seconds and then flew slowly on July 17, 2004, at 12:30 PM. The witness was out looking at the stars through a pair of binoculars, and saw a satellite, and then two white Disc shaped UFOs went across the sky about half way and stopped for about ten seconds and then left. He states, "There was a screech that sounded really weird and the two crafts were too slow for it to be a comet, asteroid or a plane." It was about 12:30 in the morning when it had occurred in a clear sky. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director www.UFOCenter.com

Georgia – Tom Sheets Retires

John C. Thompson and I wish to commend former Police Chief Tom Sheets who is retiring as as an outstanding Georgia MUFON Director. John C. Thompson writes, from my perspective of a once active UFO investigator, "Chief" Tom Sheets, with his departure, leaves mighty large shoes to fill. His leadership as state director for MUFON in Georgia was remarkable, attentive to detail, and always steady. During his long tenure he turned what before had only been amateur UFO investigator training into a professional, no-nonsense, standardized, doctrine of intense examination. His expertise in investigating came about from an exemplary, quarter-of-a-century, career in Georgia law-enforcement. Chief freely provided valuable hands-on experience in investigative techniques--that many private security and investigating firms would have eagerly paid for--to MUFON. Despite having investigated many UFO cases before having the honor of meeting Chief, I was immediately impressed with the quality of his first case submitted to MUFON. The thoroughness of his work provided many ideas which aided my own later investigations. He was clearly a man that ufology badly needed. MUFON looses its finest state director with his leave. For active or future investigators take what he has taught and shared with you and remember it well. I can assure you that MUFON will never have another "Tom Sheets." I wish Chief well in all his future endeavors. I know whatever he does, he will excel. I also extend my best to long-time friend Mark Ausmus, who has spent nearly three decades in ufology, in his new leadership of MUFON of Georgia. Thanks to John C. Thompson" gingerjohnt@dicomm.net

Note: Both Tom Sheets and John Thompson have been exceptionally excellent investigators and Georgia State Directors. Tom was able to take over ably from John and he will be sorely missed. I sincerely thank him for all his great work and outstanding leadership.

Ohio - Circle

PORTSMOUTH -- It started with one white circular object that came out of almost nowhere and dropped above a tree on July 17, 2004, at 10:45 PM. The object(s) moved effortlessly and one came very close to the ground, hovered and emitted beams. The others just seem to float by. The tree is probably 30 feet high and the craft hovered about 20 feet above that. It sent down four beams of light to the street and just stayed there. The witness states, "My girlfriend and I noticed darker squares or rectangles towards the middle of the circle, and after hovering with no noise for about 20 seconds it lifted slowly then bolted out of sight.

A triangular shape also came into focus that was a pulsing red color. When it got closer it turned bright white. We saw about 15 of these that came from the southeast. Five of the craft seem to flow back and forth, and change altitudes the other ten just flew straight. They were red at first and proceeded to change to white. I tried to put it off as a helicopter but it just didn't seem right. All the triangles were changing from red to white. There were also small dark squares or rectangles. We called the local police and guess what the craft stopped coming, so the police thought we were crazy. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director www.UFOCenter.com

LEWISBURG – Also on July 17, 2004, three friends were traveling west on I-70 not far from Dayton at 3 AM, when they spotted an illuminated triangular shaped object about a mile high.

FOSTORIA – George Ritter video taped two UFOs over a near by farm the same day. Many of the UFOs appear to fly east or west across Ohio and land near Fostoria. There are vast underground caverns in the area that could be used by the UFOs.

Thanks to George Ritter

Tennessee – Disc

PARIS – The witness was sitting on a curb, and saw an object sailing by at a pretty fast speed on July 14, 2004, at 9:43 PM. He reports seeing one disc shaped object in bright daylight that was moving at a fast pace and it was silver and reflecting light. I am familiar with weather balloons and this was not one. It was lower than an aircraft, low enough where I could see the light reflecting and determine shape and color quite easily. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director www.UFOCenter.com

Iowa - Disappearing Lights

SIOUX CITY – On July 25, 2004, At first it was on solid bright light, coming from the north, traveling pretty fast. It was a solid light until it got above us, and then it stopped and was flashing, or it moved away. This was really high up. Then we saw about 6 more lights, one of them looked like a cop car in space, circling the sky. All of the others ended up disappearing also, but not as dramatically as the first one. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director www.UFOCenter.com

Nebraska – Fast Moving Light

CHADRON - - The witnesses saw a small light almost straight above them that was solid white or white/yellow in color on July 24, 2004 at 10 PM. It started out very bright and slowly dimmed as it traveled from west to east. It lasted only a few seconds, but seemed to be traveling too fast to be a plane. There were two commercial aircraft in the area and both were traveling northeast to southwest. The light moved quickly from west to east and slowly dimmed then disappeared. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director www.UFOCenter.com

Texas – Orbs and Rectangular UFO

DALLAS -- On July 19, 2004, I took about a dozen pictures of different areas of the sky about 8:15 PM, but there was nothing in any of them, except for one. I'm sending it to you. I took this yesterday, 07-19-04, about 8:15 p.m. or so. Be for sure, I will be doing this some more.

FORT WORTH TO DALLAS -- As I was driving eastbound, from, almost directly in front of me, I saw just for maybe two seconds, a white, possibly round object, disappear into a cloud on July 25, 2004. There are a lot of military aircraft in the area, so it seems like I'm always looking up. I watched the cloud, nothing came out.? Bear in mind, I was driving, probably about 30 mph, so I had to keep one eye on the road. Usually military, and some commercial aircraft, I would have heard, but I heard nothing. I pulled over. I watched the cloud for ten minutes. Nothing came out. I wear glasses, so I'm not above saying I could have been mistaken. It just seemed so clear. The sky was clear with white clouds on a blue sky. What I call a Simpson sky. I don't have the ability to judge the distance of a cloud, but if I had to guess I would guess ten miles away. I just came directly in and entered "UFO" on my computer to see if maybe someone else saw it.

HOUSTON – The witnesses state, "We were driving east down memorial drive at 6:30 PM, between Kirkwood and Dairy Ashford when my daughter and I saw a huge object in the sky on July 25, 2004." It had to have been larger then a football field. It was white on top and light gray on the bottom. It was rectangular shaped but the top was kind of rounded. Not like anything I have ever seen before. It was pretty far away but it was huge. Probably 5 times bigger then any plane I have seen in the sky. It was also completely motionless. We turned back around to look again because some trees got in the way but it was gone. Thanks to Peter Davenport www.UFOCenter.com

Arizona – Numerous Orbs

PHOENIX – The witness reports, "I have noticed for the last month or so that around 1 PM, I have been seeing the same orbs at or around the same exact area in downtown Phoenix on Saturdays. Well July 24, 2004, today was no exception...It is a clear day today and the winds are coming in at a constant 10-15mph from the south. I went to the roof of my parking garage six floors up and spotted a white orb that was heading northeast about 10 mph at 1,500 feet high. I called a friend and described to him what I saw when out of nowhere the object came back and headed in my direction. I video-taped this and noticed it was going southwest against the wind and descending at a slow rate. I saw two strings of orbs float down near the other object. There were eight to ten objects in each bunch. They were multicolored with reds, white, orange, blue and there was a distortion around the objects like they were under water in the sky. At first it was really hard to focus then I finally got in on them and they were changing shapes and colors and barely moving, kind of meandering in the general area. They were starting to go through a thin haze and I couldn't focus in on them anymore. The sighting started about 1:15 and I couldn't see them anymore by 1:50 AM. These are the weirdest objects I have ever seen. They were side by side the whole time as if shadowing each other.

California – UFO Videos

LOS ANGELES -- It was around 11 PM, on July 23, 2004, and there was a red and white blinking light in the sky that flew from one place to another at the blink of an eye. It was circling around the night sky until it flew higher and vanished. It was very small and very high up and continued to circle around and around very slowly. I kept on looking at it until it just went higher and higher into the sky until I could no longer see it. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director www.UFOCenter.com

SAN BERNARDINO – The witnesses report seeing these objects several times in the last two years. On July 25, 2004, the witness reports seeing strange lights in the sky while driving east at 12:15 AM. He states, "I saw one of them, they fly about 1000 feet up and glow orange or red, they just appear out of nowhere for about two minutes and just float there, and then disappear. There are some strange things going on here. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director www.UFOCenter.com

AUBURN -- On August 6, 2004, at 6:55 PM, p.m. local time I witnessed three orbs of light coming out of the setting sun. I was going for my evening walk in Auburn, CA when, I saw the first of the three orbs coming out of the setting sun. I quickly got out my binoculars which I carry with me and was able to track and view the last of the three orbs. It was translucent yet very white and bright. It was constantly changing shape, going from circular to a dodecahedron shape with star or pointed like protrusions coming out of the circumference and then back to circular. All three orbs passed over me at great speed. They looked like about 15,000 feet in altitude and after passing over me they disappeared. One made a 90 degree turn to it's left in an instant then traveled for approximately an inch at my arm's length and disappeared rapidly.) Mark A. Olson, D.M. www.sonorasightings.com drmarkolson@sonorasightings.com "

SONORA -- A new sighting of a flying triangle was videotaped on August 8,2004! This object was videotaped on separate Sony Camcorders, one on Hi-8 using a tripod, the other on a hand-held Digital. (The digital video clip will be added to the later today.) Video clips of the object have been posted at: http://www.sonorasightings.com on the "JULY & AUGUST CLIPS" page.

Washington - Triangles and Helicopters

TROUT LAKE -- James Gilliland reports, "We have had almost a week of constant activity with as many as 13 eye witnesses at a time." Several ships came in very low and expanded into a brilliant light. Some side slipped back and forth changing speeds exhibiting behavior unlike any conventional craft. There was a triangle on August 6th around 10:30 PM which swooped down banked and turned upward like a ghost ship. It was a bit larger than my hand. Two out of thirteen saw it. It happened very quickly. On August 8th at 9:50 PM, a ship came in low from the southeast. It bust into a brilliant golden light dimming to orange then white. It continued northwest and repeated the signal yet this time it was brilliant white like a welding ark. Three witnesses were present. The skies are getting busier. www.eceti.org

Canada -- Record Number Of UFO Sightings

OTTAWA — Jim Bronskill in the Canadian Press reports, "From a translucent, saucer-shaped object in British Columbia to mysterious lights buzzing motorists in New Brunswick, Canadians are on their way to reporting a record number of UFO sightings this year. More than 400 stories of curious encounters were filed through the end of July, compared with just over 300 by this time last year, says Ufology Research of Manitoba, a group that tracks reports of unidentified flying objects.

At this rate, the total for 2004 will surpass the current record of 673 sightings reported last year, said Chris Rutkowski, research co-coordinator for the Winnipeg-based organization. The group receives reports directly by telephone and e-mail from sister agencies that follow the phenomenon, and via federal departments such as transport and national defense.

Rutkowski says, "I think there is a resurgence of interest in space," he said yesterday. Dazzling mid-air maneuvers were a feature of some of the more dramatic otherworldly episodes.

At a military base in Beaverbank, N.S., on April 23, three people spotted several lights in the east, including a slow-moving red one bobbing up and down. Suddenly, a second red light swooped in, prompting the first one to climb upwards and fly over it.

The Prairies seem to be a hotbed of unexplained activity. In Alberta, 61 sightings occurred up to the end of July, compared with 76 in all of last year. There were 50 in Manitoba, already double the total for 2003, while 19 reports emerged from Saskatchewan, topping last year's 13. In a widely reported incident, the pilot of Prime Minister Paul Martin's plane reported seeing a "very bright light" falling through the air, with smoke trailing, while the aircraft passed over Suffield, Alta., on March 21.

REGINA, SASKATCHEWAN -- The craft hovered in the eastern skies, not too far from Regina Airport (YQR ); on July 25, 2004. It seemed to align itself with the approaches to the airport and a bright light would come on just like on night landings at the airport. Then two big lights in an horizontal fashion came on. Then the format changed with four or more lights to look like the crescent moon. The craft spent about twenty minutes in my view and then curved an exit to the southeast. I have two digital images on my Olympus camera. Thanks to Brian Vike www.hbccufo.org

Germany - Oval

KASSEL – On German Highway 44 the witness reports seeing a s star flying towards Earth on July 18, 2004. After two or three seconds it was moving into our atmosphere and became a big oval object at quarter to midnight. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director www.UFOCenter.com

Australia -- Astronomer Sheds Light on 'UFO sightings'

UFO spotters will not need to report a red flare and a fast moving white light in the sky over Darwin on Tuesday, 10 August 2004, - they have already been identified. The white light will be the International Space Station, on one of its rare transits that is clearly visible across the Top End. The red flash comes from an Iridium flare, generated by one of 70 satellites launched by the now-defunct phone company in the 1990s. Charles Darwin University astronomy tutor Geoff Carr says the two phenomenon are often mistaken for 'close encounters'.

"You'll see a tiny light and that will brighten up enormously," he said. "It looks almost like a flare, one of those out of a flare gun, and then it will just disappear and people have rung me up saying 'I'm sure I saw a UFO last night, it just skirted into the atmosphere, then it took off', so you know what they're talking about when they do contact you, because you know when they're visible." http://www.abc.net.au/darwin/news/200408/s1172651.htm

Were World War II Foo Fighters Real Or Not?

Columnist Fred Alexander in The Franklin Press writes, " Foo Fighters was the name given to unexplained balls of glowing light seen by U.S., British, and German pilots late in World War Two in the skies over Europe. The Objects where also seen in the Pacific by U.S. and Japanese soldiers Wally Hoffman recalled, but "The mission to Schweinfurt was historically tough with huge loss of planes and men, but somebody positively was out there trying to help us. Soon after we had dropped are bombs on Schweinfurt we began a shallow right turn away and from the target and the black wall of flak to reform in a tight diamond combat formation. As I looked to the east I could see several groups advancing to the initial point to begin their bombrun.Ithenobserved one of the most baffling incidents of my life. There I observed an enigma, which to this day still defies a suitable explanation.

" I saw that the Bombers of the 384th Bomb Group under a concentrated fighter attacks had turned on the initial point and began their bomb run to the target. The persistent fighter attacks suddenly ceased. I then noticed the reflection of what appeared to be circular type objects all around the bomber formation. There were absolutely no German fighters that ordinarily seemed to swarm around and through the formations with their deadly 20mm cannons. Where were they? It was as if the 384th Bomb Group was flying in a vacuum.

Later I learned the pilots and several crews in the nose and top turret reported a cluster of discs in their flight path and apparently closing on the bombers. The discs in clusters to more silver colored. They were easily seen by the B-17 crewmembers, gliding down slowly in a uniform cluster. One fortress closed rapidly with a cluster of these discs, however the pilot was unsuccessful in trying to evade the discs. He reported at debriefing that although his right wing went through the cluster there was absolutely no effect on the engines or the plane surfaces. The pilot further stated that one of the discs was heard to strike that tail assembly. None of the crew heard or witnessed any explosion as a result. About 20 ft. from the discs the crewmembers sighted a mass of black debris of varying sizes also in clusters of about four feet. Other aircraft were observed flying through the discs with no apparent damage. Other discs were sighted but they were unable to determine where they had originated," concluded Hoffman. Snip.
