Sirius, UFO trickster extraordinaire

by Bob King

Scintillating Sirius is sometimes mistaken for a UFO

I’ve never seen a UFO that stayed a UFO. I remember certain moving lights as a kid but they turned out to be airplanes or geese aglow with light pollution. And who hasn’t been tricked into thinking they’ve discovered the next Milky Way supernova only to realize it was a distant aircraft in your line of sight?

For all the hours of dark sky time amateur astronomers accumulate, few of us have seen a UFO. It makes sense. We’re generally familiar with the stars and their movements, where the planets happen to be and the atmosphere’s uncanny ability to distort and parse light into strange and beautiful phenomena. Not that some skywatchers haven’t seen a few things that defy immediate explanation.

While some might say this takes away the magic of the night sky, rendering us blind to the possibility of UFOs, I’d argue the contrary. Knowledge deepens our appreciation of all we see, hear, smell and touch.

Familiar objects often mistaken for UFOs include bright stars, planets and satellites, but high – if not highest – on the list is Sirius in the constellation Canis Major the Greater Dog.

Sirius has attained UFO status for several good reasons: at magnitude -1.5 it’s the brightest star in the sky, it “moves” both slowly and rapidly and shoots out light of different colors.

Because it’s bright, and for many of us, falls along an easy line of sight on March evenings, we’re bound to notice it. No star sparkles more intensely especially when hovering low in the sky.

Stars. So big but yet so tiny. Despite their enormous size, distance reduces stars to tiny pinpoints even in the largest telescopes. When a star beam hits our atmosphere, it gets yanked around by parcels of air of varying density, speed and size. Each parcel acts like a individual lens, refracting or bending the star’s light into a tiny image. As the air churns overhead, the positions of all those individual images continually change, zigging the star in random directions. While our eyes aren’t keen enough to distinguish the many tiny images moving to and fro, we sense the starlight’s tortured path as sputtering light or twinkling. All stars flitter around – just ask telescopic observers –  but twinkling is most noticeable in bright stars like Vega, Canopus, Rigel and especially Sirius.

Twinkling is caused by moving air pockets in our atmosphere. Twinkling is much stronger and more noticeable near the horizon, because our line of sight passes through a much greater thickness of air.

Mind you, it doesn’t necessarily matter how calm it is on the ground. Some 10 miles of relatively thick air between you and Sirius provide plenty of opportunities for fluttering images on many otherwise tranquil nights. Bright planets generally don’t twinkle because they’re close enough to show actual disks.  Tiny shifts induced by atmospheric turbulence can bodily move a star with ease, but planets are big enough compared to the size of the air cells to hold their own and beam forth a steady light.

 

For some, Sirius’ twinkling creates the sense that a star is moving or shooting about, making it that much more mysterious. Superimposed on this apparent rapid movement is the slow westward drift of the stars caused by Earth’s rotation. People have contacted me about brilliant, slow-moving objects, and it’s clear they’ve been watching a star get a free ride from our revolving planet.

So we’ve got brightness and movement going for us – what about color? Colors come from the air, too. Just as white light is composed of a rainbow or spectrum of individual colors from indigo to red, so is starlight. When Sirius is low above the horizon, refraction (bending of light) is strong enough to create images of the star in every color of the rainbow and cast them about in different directions. Split-second variations in air density and flow make for continuous multi-color sparkles.

Sirius’ colors are fairly obvious with the naked eye, but I’ve found binoculars show them even better. By the way, the jerkiness induced in holding binoculars steady adds another motion factor to the UFO equation.

Once, a fellow came to our local planetarium with video he’d taken of a UFO, hoping for help in identifying the object. We watched it change from a star to a bloated disk and back to a star again as the image jumped wildly about in the shaky, hand-held camera. Knowing the date and time of the footage, we instantly knew it was the camera struggling to maintain autofocus on Sirius.

I remember thinking, “wow, we really helped this guy out”, but he was less than pleased. We tried to explain that he was seeing not only the brightest star in the sky but one twice as massive as the sun and nearly twice its size. But facts were of no use. Convinced he had recorded a UFO anyway, he took his video and promptly left!

I’d love to see a real space ship UFO powered by alien biology. Deep down many of us suspect they exist. With 1,779 extra-solar planets confirmed to date, habitats for potential life seem more certain than ever. But what are the odds of little green men dropping by anything soon? Not only are the distances between stars daunting, but intelligent species may have no interest in outer space or leaving the home planet. After all, whales don’t build space ships.

Fact or fiction

The ancient dragons are awake. Is this the real reason for global self-isolation?

All recent events in the world were extremely illogical, including global self-isolation, and this should have had a very good reason, which required extraordinary and unprecedented actions on the part of the entire world community.

The first hints of the essence of what was happening began to appear three months ago, but the answer hidden behind them was so fantastic that it was very difficult to believe in it, but now everything has changed – a video appeared, and not one, but from many eyewitnesses and filmed from different heights and angles.

A video in which a dragon attacked the building of the local skyscraper with “napalm” Hui Ming, or rather, he demonstrated his capabilities or the purpose of his attack was something located in the building of the local substation or the substation itself. Yes, you read that right – a dragon.

Today we posted this news, which was broadcast in all the world’s media, but they explained everything that happened there – by a lightning strike. We immediately drew attention to the discrepancy between what we see in the video and the very concept of “lightning”. Everything that happened was like an attack from the air of a liquid that ignites spontaneously when in contact with oxygen in its damaging properties, similar to napalm.

When a lot of eyewitness videos appeared on the network, we began to carefully watch it and immediately noticed a strange flying object appearing seconds before the ignition. Moreover, when watching the video from different angles, filmed from different heights, it was obvious that there was no lightning at all, but there was an ignition of the liquid that was thrown out by a stream from above at the level of the building’s roof.

It remained to find out by whom and how it was dropped and what kind of flying object it was in the area of ​​the incident. Watching the video made by an eyewitness from the car near the building where everything happened, we saw the unbelivable – the dragon.

We confess, even we could not believe what we were seeing and we watched all the videos made by eyewitnesses and realized that the dragons really exist. He got on video from different cameras, on video filmed from different directions and from different heights, and it was exactly a dragon.

If you find it funny, you can stop reading and watch the facts that prove our words in the videos that we will post below. This information is for people who want to know what is really going on and what they need to be prepared for. Events in China have shown that you and us have very little time left, and now you must realize and accept the reality of this threat. Threats not personally to us or to several people, a threat to all of humanity.

It is about the survival of humanity as such. For the simple reason that this is a threat of a nature with which modern mankind has not simply not faced, but for which it is not at all ready either materially or morally. Do you think it was easy for me to accept and realize the reality of what is happening now on earth? no, it’s not easy, but we all need to understand, realize and accept this as a fact in order to be ready to fight for survival.

On August 3, 2020, everything changed and the world will never be the same again. Here is a video taken by an eyewitness from the car, here everything that happened can be seen most clearly and from a good angle. The dragon appears on the right, flaps its wings, gains altitude a little, makes another flap of its wings and presses them to the body, sharply gaining height and flies from the back of the building at roof level.

When it reaches the middle of the building, it ejects “napalm” and flies forward – the liquid that it threw out ignites in about 3 seconds, and the dragon dives down behind the building, makes a flip in the air and climbs sharply.

In this video, there is no doubt about it – dragon. The liquid he spits out is likely to ignite spontaneously on contact with oxygen. 3 seconds and a fiery hell begins. Eyewitnesses have published enough videos where it is 100% clear that there can be no talk of any lightning, this is the spontaneous ignition of a substance similar to napalm.

The consequences of exposure to this liquid are more than impressive. In addition to the burned-out electrical substation, the cars that fell under the “napalm” completely burned out, and not only burned out, but the metal of the bodies, pillars, hoods and roofs melted and “flowed”, which speaks of albeit a short burning, but an incredibly high flame temperature.

After all, the first clues appeared a long time ago. For example, on June 4, thousands of residents gathered in the Chinese province of Guizhou to find a mysterious creature that makes eerie sounds like the roar of a dragon.

Locals gathered at the top of a mountain in Xushui in China’s southwestern province of Guizhou to hear loud, frightening sounds similar to the roar of a dragon. Local officials even had to set up roadblocks to stop the crowds and sent a team of experts to investigate the source of the strange sound.

People were dispersed, justifying their actions by the fact that they violate the regime of self-isolation and gather in large crowds, violating quarantine. And, the sounds of power were explained simply – the Yellow-legged buttonquail shouts. And they were not bothered at all by the fact that the locals had never heard anything like this in their lives, but they should have, since it’s just a local bird screaming.

By the way, she screams in a completely different way, but did anyone care. The party said – a bird, then so be it. This is how the Yellow-legged buttonquail screams, completely differently, and in addition, its pis can be heard no more than 20 meters away. In your opinion, her squeak is similar to that roar, from which the mountains seem to even vibrate – no, it is not.

China and dragons in the mythology of this country are very closely connected and maybe this is not at all just like that. The territory of China is vast and mountainous areas are practically deserted, unexplored territory.

Moreover, dragons are mentioned in legends, myths and legends around the world and among completely different peoples. Scientists considered all this to be fairy tales, but could everything be completely different? Maybe they really existed, but at some point the living conditions on the planet reduced their population, perhaps this happened as a result of some kind of cataclysm – a global cooling, a meteorite fall, a greenhouse effect, it doesn’t matter if something happened and they disappeared into caves falling into suspended animation.

Dragons are reptiles, and this species is known for its ability to practically stop their vital activity under adverse conditions, not to mention the fact that they can completely freeze, and under favorable conditions, return to life. For example, crocodiles freeze into the ice, and then when it gets warmer, they come to life. And who knows what these ancient and completely unknown creatures – dragons – are capable of?

By the way, not so long ago, on one of the videos posted by scientists, which showed the destruction of a glacier in Antarctica – a huge layer of ice descended into the ocean, there was one interesting detail. At some point after the ice wall collapses, a dark-colored object is visible, appearing for a second from under the water and clearly having not the shape of ice, but rather something unusual, something with a head and an eye on it.

Yes, this video is controversial, but in view of all that is happening, it can be assumed that the dragons could lie in suspended animation in the ice of Antarctica and in other large glaciers around the world, until global warming began.

The changes that have taken place – climatic, atmospheric and even cosmic, could awaken these ancient giants to life. Global warming, changes in the atmosphere, changes in oxygen levels, solar minimum and, as a consequence, maximum levels of cosmic radiation (radiation, as well as high-energy particles), which have been recorded for more than a year, and the last three months have been at an almost historical record maximum.

Are dragons fantastic creatured? But what happened in China suggests otherwise, they are a new reality. And just think – the emergence, awakening of a new kind of predators, and not just predators, but huge predators, flying, possessing weapons of destructive power, can’t this explain the introduction of this strange quarantine, self-isolation, incredible cohesion in common decisions of all countries of the world, ready to go to destroy your own economy and limit civil liberties.

If a new predator has appeared that can change the existing order where “Man is the king of beasts”, then the natural logical response to this threat will be the introduction of restrictions on movement, on visiting wild places, reserves, mountains and paradise beaches. Why draw the attention of a new super-predator to potential and, most importantly, completely defenseless victims?

By concentrating the population within the city limits, it is possible to organize the protection of the perimeter of these “fortresses”, by concentrating the armed forces there to counter the new threat. Perhaps with the use of some deterrent technologies or the cities themselves oversaturated with cell towers, entangled in power grids and substations, emit such a background (electromagnetic, noise or other kind), which becomes a natural “repeller” for dragons.

Maybe this is what explains the August the 3rd attack by the dragon on the electrical substation, which somehow interfered, scared away, knocked down this predator, or there was not a substation at all, but something else that interferes with him (them).

This is just a hypothesis, but this attack marks a completely new round of confrontation. It is quite possible that during the general quarantine, the armed forces of the countries of the world were already searching for and destroying the awakened ancient threat, and now a new stage begins, when dragons are already counter-attacking a competing predator. There is not enough space for a planet and two predators.

What dragons are and how dangerous they are, one can only guess. At this stage, the first conclusions can be drawn based on the event in China:
– they are large, more than 10 meters,
– they fly, they have excellent aerodynamics,
– they have glands that produce a liquid substance when thrown out of which, possibly an additional gland, an activator reagent is added to this liquid at the outlet, which makes this liquid flammable when it comes into contact with oxygen 3 seconds after the “volley”.

This liquid, in its destructiveness, is comparable to napalm,
– probably their skin (scales) has properties comparable to “stealth” technology (invisibility for radars of aircraft, this property can explain how this or these creatures managed to enter the airspace above a large city without being noticed by the military or civilians) radar, as a result of which the combat aircraft did not rise to intercept, possibly due to low thunderclouds, under the cover of which the attack was made.

Now everything will depend on how successfully the armed forces of human civilization will be able to resist this new enemy. With all the abundance of weapons, they are all extremely vulnerable because of their manufacturability.

If we assume that dragons have the ability to emit a limited electromagnetic pulse, have the ability to be invisible to radars, then a perfect weapon will not be more effective than an ordinary club.

If this is the beginning of a new round of confrontation between people and dragons, then new cases of “lightning” or strange fires from “lightning”, or explosions of warehouses or factories, factories and entire buildings, large fires in cities due to “lightning” should follow. We will monitor this and report all such cases.

Quarantine Round 2 will begin on August 30 and will last for Six months

Quarantine 2: Terminal - Third Street Pictures; RCR Media Group

On July 31, the German website liebeisstleben.de reports that in a month, from August 30, 2020, repeated quarantine blocks will begin in Germany, which will last from three to six months. That is, until March 1, 2021. 

The information is semi-official – there is no message on TV yet, nevertheless, the municipal councilor from the state of Hesse, having learned the plans from his supervisors, immediately contacted independent journalists and informed them on these shocking news. 

The majority of our readers live quite far from Germany, but the news affect everyone. As we remember the epic of the fight against the pandemic this spring, all large and small, proud and, as it were, independent countries acted strictly according to the same scheme, as if they were carrying out a common command emanating from some single global center. Therefore, we suspect that everything will be the same now, only the dates for the start of quarantine will be announced different. For example – August 16 or September 9. 

On what basis the date of August 30 was chosen is not clear. It is possible that in the spring the quarantine left people a chance to escape to the forests for the summer, and if you move to the forest in August, then by winter it will no longer be settled. 

The duration of the blockage also raises bad suspicions. In the spring, when there was, as it were, the most dangerous first wave, the blockages lasted a month or two, but not three and, moreover, not six months. And now the pandemic is on the decline and there are such wild times. 

Moreover, the first blockage was announced for a week, gradually extending it 4-8 times, therefore, if this happens in this case, then the first six months can be extended for several years – this possibility also needs to be borne in mind.

What could be the explanation for the start of such a long quarantine?

The first thing you can think about is vaccinations. So, as Bloomberg writes today with reference to big bosses from Moscow, a mass vaccination is planned for October in the Russian Federation, with the first being distributed among teachers and medical workers. Most likely, the military and law enforcement agencies are on the same list of priorities. It is possible, of course, that something will not grow together with the bosses and everything will be postponed, but it’s not a fact.

The second possible explanation is Nibiru, asteroids, world war or some other global event, on the threshold of which they want to lock everyone at home. Even NASA does not really know when Nibiru will prove itself, and with their first forecast being miscalculated by 10 years, ahead of time, the “pandemic” H1N1 starting to spin. But now, apparently, it is not very long before the special effects, so the quarantine for six months will be sufficient for Nibiru to fit into this six-month window with a guarantee. 

We have already acquainted our readers with some prophecies, according to which the main blockages will begin in the fall. As you can see, people’s dreams come true. 

Vanging of astrologers who promised a world default of everything and everyone somewhere in February are also coming true. There is no default yet, but there is no February either. At the same time, if nothing will work anywhere for 6 months, and people will still be paid some benefits, the world economy will collapse completely and without options.

At the same time, where people will not be paid benefits, people will take up scrap, since the stocks of money and food were heavily used up in the spring. And as soon as the people with crowbars take to the streets, and astronauts with syringes will still run after the people – against the background of the fact that even the default of everything and everything will seem like a children’s matinee

Borg cubes have become frequent visitors to the solar system? SOHO scientist denies it

UFO enthusiasts were knocked off their feet, figuring out what kind of strange square is captured in a picture of the Sun taken recently by NASA.

The scientist gave a detailed explanation. Recently, more and more images of the Sun have appeared, which are being carefully studied. Taking these photographs is not easy and unsafe given that the Sun is a blindingly bright ball of nuclear fusion. But scientists still managed to take photographs from a minimum distance, including detailed images of the sun’s surface.

But this week a very strange photo of the Sun was published, and there were messages on the network about a picture of an alien ship, which is ten times (!) Larger than Earth. SOHO scientist and mission leader Bernhard Fleck gave a simple answer to this wild UFO claim in the solar system.

“This is, of course, complete nonsense,” he said. – The black square appeared due to a missing (damaged) telemetry block. I can send you dozens, if not hundreds, of similar images (with even larger UFOs).”

In other words, the strange dark object in the image is not an object. This “artifact” is a glitch in the picture itself, caused by errors in signal transmission between SOHO and Earth.

SOHO is located in halo orbit about 1.5 million kilometers from Earth. Therefore, the images he sends, for obvious reasons, “lose” a few pixels.

“Most of the missing pixels are closed, but not always, and not all the voids are filled correctly,” explained Fleck. “But it doesn’t affect level 0 scientific data.”
