“What was so important to these early people that they gathered to build (and bury) the stone rings? The gulf that separates us from Gobekli Tepe’s builders is almost unimaginable.”
– Smithsonian Reporter Andrew Curry
“If you start looking into the religious ideas of cultures and indigenous civilizations, you’ll find that the star Deneb, Cygnus constellation, in the Milky Way’s Dark Rift was seen as a point of entry and exit into the sky world. It was seen as this is where the souls came from and this is where the souls return to in death.”

March 29, 2013 Gobekli Tepe 8 miles northeast of Sanliurfa, Turkey –
On Wednesday, June 13, 2012, as the sun rose I was standing on the Gobekli Tepe hilltop in southern Turkey not far from the Syrian northern border. Carbon dated to 12,000 years ago, Gobekli is older than Egypt, Sumeria, classical Greeks and Stonehenge. I had hoped, expected, that being there physically would help me understand the function of the mysterious 12,000-year-old rings of tall, T-shaped, oddly carved limestone pillars. But instead of understanding, I felt something alien, incomprehensible and disturbing.
Ramps have been built to walk around the archaeological excavations of mysterious 10 to 19-foot-tall, elegantly carved T-shaped limestone pillars placed carefully in circular patterns. Each pillar weighs 10 to 20 metric tons. Many are sculpted with odd, even unrecognizable, animals, insects and humanoid figures. The unusual limestone pillars were quarried from bedrock pits located around 100 meters (330 ft) from the Gobekli hilltop.
Ground-penetrating radar has revealed nearly 300 thin, elegant, T-shaped limestone pillars were placed 12,000 years ago in circles covering 30 acres a thousand feet above the valley floor. Then a thousand years later, the entire mysterious site was covered back over with soil for unknown reasons until it was uncovered again in 1994 by Klaus Schmidt. Since then only 5% of the Gobekli Hill has been excavated.
To his surprise, archaeologist Klaus Schmidt did not find evidence of cooking hearths, houses or trash pits, and no clay fertility figurines. He found some stone hammers and blades, but no specific tools that could explain how the extraordinary 3-dimensional sculptures were made.
Another reporter who sensed the alien quality of Gobekli Tepe was Smithsonian magazine reporter Andrew Curry, during his visit to Gobekli Tepe in 2008. He wrote, “Predating Stonehenge by at least 6,000 years, Turkey’s stunning Gobekli Tepe upends the conventional view of the rise of civilization” far earlier than the academically acceptable timeline of Mesopotamia 5,000 years ago. “What was so important to these early people that they gathered to build (and bury) the stone rings? The gulf that separates us from Gobekli Tepe’s builders is almost unimaginable. Indeed, though I stood among the looming megaliths eager to take in their meaning, they didn’t speak to me. They were utterly foreign, placed there by people who saw the world in a way I will never comprehend. There are no sources to explain what the symbols might mean. Schmidt agrees, ‘We’re 6,000 years before the invention of writing here.’’’
So who placed sophisticated, carved limestone pillars on 30 some acres of the Gobekli Tepe hilltop twelve thousand years ago? And why? Why was the entire Gobekli site deliberately covered over with dirt a thousand years after its construction as if to protect it from – what? Did the original Gobekli creators have foreknowledge about a coming catastrophe? Did Someone with advanced technology rapidly re-bury all the pillars?
The effort needed to erect so many large stone circles over some 30 acres – and then have to bury all those pillars again centuries later – is beyond understanding.
U. K.’s Andrew Collins Finds Link to Cygnus Constellation
Also haunted by these questions is Andrew Collins, author of The Cygnus Mystery © 2006 U.K. and 2007 U. S. Other books include Beneath the Pyramids © 2009; and Ashes of Angels © 1996. Andrew has been exploring the history of ancient religious beliefs and their relationship to the universe for more than thirty years. He first traveled to Gobekli Tepe in 2004 and was so provoked by the strange limestone pillars that he began to work with engineer Rodney Hale, who has studied star alignments with prehistoric and sacred sites around the world. From their work together, Andrew is producing a new book to be released by Fall 2013 entitled Gobekli Tepe: Genesis of the Gods (Inner Traditions). In a prelude to the upcoming book, Andrew Collins summarized some of his new work at his website, andrewcollins.com, in a March 2013 article, Gobekli Tepe, Its Cosmic Blueprint Revealed. See Websites below.
We talked recently about his and Rodney Hale’s calculations that there is a consistent orientation of the larger central twin pillars in two of the stone pillar enclosures referred to as “C” and “D” excavated so far. That orientation 12,000 years ago would have been on the bright star Deneb in the Cygnus constellation, also known as the Northern Cross, and depicted as a flying swan by many ancient cultures.
Interview: Andrew Collins, Author, The Cygnus Mystery © 2009, Essex County, England: “The major central pillars at Gobekli Tepe – these ancient enclosures – are all directed towards the northwest. The entrances are in the southeast. The different pillars are facing the Entrant as they go into the structure. They then walk between the pillars and at this point achieve some kind of altered state of consciousness and enter a sacred space, both in mind and in body, and travel somewhere. Where exactly they travel is the $ million question at the moment. As far as I’m concerned, it’s reflected in the sky in which they are facing and that, of course, is the north.
The north is the eternal place of Darkness. It’s the place where the sun does not reach if you are in the Northern Hemisphere. But it’s also the direction of the Celestial Pole marked today by the Pole Star. But at the time of the construction of Gobekli Tepe, which was around 9,500 B. C. (11,500 to 12,000 years ago), there was no Pole Star. There was only a dark area around which the circumpolar – the stars that never set and just revolve around and around and around. So, what was it that they (Gobekli builders) were actually interested in, in the sky?
At the time I came back (from Gobekli), the first official Gobekli site plans were published. This was in 2004. I looked at these and I realized that all of the main enclosures were orientated just to the west of north. There were other peoples around Gobekli, including the ancient city of i – which is just to the south of Gobekli Tepe.
[ Editor’s Note: Harran was a major ancient city in Upper Mesopotamia whose site is near the modern village of Altinbasak, Turkey, 24 miles (44 km) southeast of Sanliurfa and Gobekli Tepe. ]
In fact, Gobekli Tepe overlooks the Harran Plain, where the ancients there believed in the power of the north. It was for them the point of First Creation. It was the point in the heavens where the souls came from and returned to in death. The Mystery of the North was the great ritual they celebrated each year.
To me, I wanted to try to understand what it was that interested them in the northern sky and I looked at the alignments just west of north and realized they seemed to be looking at a particular star. This was the brightest star Deneb in the constellation of Cygnus, the celestial swan or bird, which is also known as the Northern Cross.”
Andrew Collins: “And it was this bright star that the main central pillars in all of the Gobekli enclosures seemed to be focused toward. This was something that was the beginning of my interest in this constellation. If you start looking into civilizations, risen and fallen around the world – both in the Old World and the New World – it is at the core of religious beliefs, at creation myths, of funerary myths. It seemed to be the point in the sky that was the point of cosmic creation, but also the place of death. The place where the soul would return to in death.
Why was this so important? For two reasons. Firstly, because this was the position on the Milky Way where the Milky Way splits into two, like forks into two (branches) to create what is known as the Dark Rift.

Full Disclosure: Navy Commander Details His Bizarre UFO Encounter
A retired Navy Commander released his official statement about that one time he had a UFO encounter, witnessing a bizarre craft rising out of the ocean and flying past his plane.
On February 10, 1951, Navy pilot and officer Graham Bethune, along with his crew, was flying in a mission from Iceland to Newfoundland.
While finishing the mission, they experienced something rather inexplicable. This event marked the whole life of the ex-Navy commander and the rest of the crew as well.
Namely, the members of the mission noticed a bizarre light on the ocean’s watery surface around 300 miles from Newfoundland.
These lights were so eminent and scattered throughout a large area hence the men felt like they were flying over a city.
During the Disclosure Project Conference in Washington DC in 2001, ex-commander Bethune explained his weird UFO encounter.
“As we approached this glow it turned to a monstrous circle of white lights on the water. Then we saw a yellow halo, small, much smaller than whatever it was launched from, about fifteen miles away.”
In only a matter of seconds, the gleaming UFO equaled their altitude. Thus, Bethune had to free the autopilot and draw the plane’s nose down in order to dodge a crash. But soon, the object shifted going towards them.
“As the UFO approached my plane and flew alongside it, we could see the domed craft which had a corona discharge,” he said.
At the same time, certain plane instruments started failing due to the powerful electromagnetic disruptions the UFO generated.
The plane had 31 passengers, a psychiatrist and of course, the crew aboard. All of them watched as the event was unrolling.
As soon as the plane landed, the witnesses were questioned and pressured on signing a non-disclosure form. Their testimonies, however, were upheld by radar data from an Air Force station in Goose Bay, Labrador.
Do you believe Mr. Bethune and his crew really experienced a true UFO encounter? Tell us your opinion.
Will Vladimir Putin Disclose Alien Presence?
A couple of major news outlets today tossed up headlines saying Vladimir Putin is about to disclose the reality of alien presence on earth. A potential Putin UFO disclosure statement would be world-changing.
The claim comes from the Paradigm Research Group founder, Stephen Bassett. Bassett is a US lobbyist on the issue of alien disclosure (he’s the only one).
If I had two minutes with Putin, my only question would be why do you not tell people about the ET presence. I believe Vladimir Putin is well aware of the ET presence. ~Stephen Bassett in a Russian Network TV interview.
Essentially, Bassett believes a global gag order keeps world leaders from disclosing the truth about aliens and UFOs.
Where’s the Evidence?
I went over all the news articles I could find regarding this revelation and there’s not as much interesting to it as I’d hoped.
Bassett traveled to Russia hoping to convince Putin to disclose what he knows, if anything, about aliens. He never actually got to speak to Putin though. He only had an interview with a Russian television network where he explained his beliefs.
Unfortunately, regardless of what Vladimir Putin knows, there’s nothing in Bassett’s interview to suggest he might be considering any type of UFO disclosure.
Putin UFO Disclosure?
So what might Putin know about UFOs?
Well, he sure as hell knows more about what’s going on than I do. The Russian interest in possible extraterrestrial technology is unquestioned. If there was anything going on, Putin would be one of the first to be grabbing the intel.
I believe Vladimir Putin is well aware of the ET presence. ~Bassett
Whether it happens or not, once one leader spills the beans it’s likely that more will follow. I’d love for Putin or Trump to come out and say, “yes aliens are visiting us and here’s proof.” It’s highly unlikely though. There’s always the possibility that our world leaders don’t even have proof.
Perhaps one day this will be the image with the headline: “Vladimir Putin provides proof of alien involvement on Earth”
The articles I found touting the Putin UFO disclosure seem to really be reporting the beliefs of a specific researcher. But it turns out, he doesn’t have any real information about Putin’s intentions.
I would still be cool though if he said something. It’s fun to think about. I’ll keep hoping that one day it happens.
Mysterious underwater object link to ‘Tic Tac’ UFO sighting
Remember that undated report on the Nimitz UFO incident discovered by a news team in Las Vegas?
Not only did it detail the capabilities of the supposed alien craft, it also hinted at another mysterious object encountered by a different pilot during the training exercises: Something huge and submerged beneath the waves encountered by a Navy fighter pilot.
The details are vague, but they certainly deepen the mystery of what happened off the coast of San Diego.
According to the report (turn to page 6), a Lt. Col. was doing a Function Test Flight (a test to see if the plane was fully functional after being repaired) when he was asked to go check out an “unidentified airborne contact,” along with two other pilots.
He was asked if he had any ordnance (weapons) on board, to which he replied no.
Officials say this was a strange question; no air controller had ever asked him that when dealing with an unknown contact situation.
Soon after, he came close to the coordinates of the unknown object and was told to “skip it” and head back by the controller.
Instead, the Lt. Col. decided to go check it out.
What he found was a “disturbance” in the water between 50 and 100 meters in diameter that was close to a round shape.
It created a large area of frothing white water, and reminded the pilot of “something rapidly submerging from the surface like a submarine or a ship sinking.”
Soon after, he looked toward the area again and found no trace of the disturbance or any craft near the spot.
According to the report, the disturbance may have been caused by an AAV that was ‘cloaked’ or ‘invisible to the human eye.’
The report came to light roughly a month ago when it was published by I-Team, a Las Vegas investigative news team that covers everything from crime to local events.
It’s still unclear whether the document is authentic, but if it is, it’s one of the most persuasive pieces of evidence for modern UFOs.
