Edward Snowden says encryption could be squashing space signals from Aliens

Encryption has become a top priority for those wanting to protect their privacy online, but US whistleblower Edward Snowden says the security measure could be making it impossible to detect signals sent from...aliens.

Snowden's comments were made during an interview on the 'StarTalk' podcast of astrophysicist and science communicator Neil deGrasse Tyson.

The whistleblower was speaking from Moscow via a robot video link called a "beam remote presence system." Controlling the robot from Russia, he was able to roll straight into Tyson's office at the Hayden Planetarium in New York.

Comment: Maybe during Snowden's stint with the NSA he learned a lot more about the Extraterrestrial presence here than he's letting on, and wants to seem circumspect on the subject so as not to detract from his main message? Then again, this bit of data may be all he really knows.

Whatever the case may be, there are a whole slew of reasons why humanity has been largely kept in the dark about this subject of subjects.

Pulsating diamond shaped UFO spotted above Merseyside, UK

This strange light was seen hovering in the night sky above Merseyside.

The mystery diamond-shaped object pulsated, getting brighter and bigger and then fading only to reappear again.

It was spotted over the sky in Merseyside at around 4.45am today.

Matthew Oliver, who filmed the curious phenomenon, said: "It caught my eye as it was shining very brightly through my bedroom window and as I watched it began to gradually dim then slowly increase again in intensity as if on a dimmer switch.


Bigfoot with baby sighting reported in Virginia

He's a legend. Most say a myth. People hunt for him on reality television. But a Bedford County woman says her story is no joke. She called the Sheriff's Office about Bigfoot.

ABC 13 spoke to the woman by phone Thursday. She provided details on the condition of anonymity. The woman said she recently moved to the area and does not want to get a reputation with her new neighbors.

"I know this is going to sound crazy," said the woman in a call to Bedford dispatch on September 9.

The woman told the dispatcher she was driving up Route 43, toward the Peaks of Otter, around 11:40p.m. on September 9. She said her headlights hit something strange past Turkey Mountain Road, just before the first bridge.

Owner scraps van after being 'plagued by Poltergeists for 12 months'

Paul Friday of Netherley believes his Ford Transit is haunted by a poltergeist. He says he has images taken on his mobile phone that show ghostly faces of a male spirit that are unexplainable.
Desperate owner Paul Friday even tried selling the Ford Transit on eBay to get rid of the spirits

A 'haunted' van allegedly vandalised by poltergeists has been scrapped by its owner, after 12 months of being 'plagued by demonic spirits.'

Paul Friday, who runs a wheelie bin cleaning company, claims the ghouls moved from his home into his van after a medium from a local church exorcised them - and now he believes they're trying to kill him after switching to haunting him personally.

The 54-year-old also claims he was left with no choice but to scrap the Ford Transit and all of his work equipment after a string of 'terrifying' incidents including having his brakes tampered with and his van being doused with a gallon of petrol by 'demonic entities.'

He said: "It all started about 12 months ago when I bought a new generator.

"It kept breaking and when I took it to be repaired the wires were all ruined. After getting it fixed it happened again and the repairman said 'it must be a ghost.'

"Strange things started happening in the house and in the van so I called someone out from the spiritualist church - they said they had 'sent the spirits to the light' and that they were gone.

"But things kept happening in my van - the spiritualist, Wendy, spent half an hour in the back of there and came out physically drained.

"She said that the spirit was very powerful and that the best advice was probably to get rid of it. It was damaging my business as I couldn't work."

A mushroom ring in the woods
For thousands of years, the sudden appearance of a ring of mushrooms was taken as a sure sign of otherworldly presences. These rings would seemingly appear overnight, or travel from one location to another, with no clear rhyme or reason. Warnings of the dark forces that must create these abnormalities were passed down between generations, and the folklore of fairy rings was established.

These fairy rings (fairy circles, elf circles, or pixie rings) are a naturally occurring phenomenon. A fungi creates a ring or arc shape within the soil, affecting the grass in the area, and grows up through the greenery forming a circle of mushrooms. These rings—a lovely surprise and considered good luck by some, or a dark omen and nasty lawn problem to others—can spread from a very few inches to 164 feet (50 meters) or more. The ring found in Belfort, France, is thought to be the largest ring ever found. It is approximately 2,000 feet (600 meters) in diameter, and an astonishing 700 years old.

Comment: There are several interesting things about the topic of "fairy circles". First of all, it is a well-established fact that lightning (or a special type of thunder) stimulates mushrooms growth and makes them multiply. Considering the electromagnetic nature of meteorites, reference to "falling stars" and "flying dragons" is also very curious.

More so, taking into account many cases of strange disappearances and the existence of the so called "anomalous zones", it wouldn't be too outrageous to speculate that the described circles were indeed a result of some sort of electromagnetic event, and anyone who entered them experienced a range of strange or even "supernatural" phenomena.

For more examples of various mysterious circles, read the following articles: Also consider the following excerpt from Superluminal Communications dated 18 July 2015:
(Perceval) What are those so-called "Fairy Circles" in the desert in Namibia?

(L) What do they look like?

(Perceval) They're in the desert, and it's like really low brush or grass. But there are thousands and thousands of these circles.

(Andromeda) Small circles in the sand, but they've never been able to figure it out.

(Perceval) They're like dead patches in a circle where the grass doesn't grow.

(Andromeda) Like sand circles.

Bizarre shape-changing UFO filmed over New York


The object seemed to change from shape to shape
These bizarre shapes were caught on camera by a man when he started filming the planet Venus over New York.

The video was shot by Tony Shea, who runs his own online space and paranormal site called Shea Magazine, after he said he "felt presence".

He wrote in an article with the footage filmed in New York: "I got up this morning at about 2 am, awoken by a strange dream.

"Somewhere around 5 am I noticed that there was a strange round object in the sky.

"I thought at first it was the reflection of my computer off the window.

"But then something else strange happened, I felt an odd presence watching me somehow, like a beam coming through the window, and then I grabbed a camera and started recording.


UFO enthusiasts say NASA's Mars Curiosity Rover photo shows object that looks like a crashed Star Wars destroyer

© www.ufosightingsdaily.com
If you thought Star Destroyers were only found in Star Wars flicks, you may be wrong. A photo taken by NASA's Mars Curiosity Rover shows an object that, to some UFO lovers, looks like the same warships seen on the big screen.

"I found this anomaly in the latest Curiosity Rover photo. The black object looks like a crashed UFO," wrote UFO Sightings contributor Scott C. Waring.

He added that the "craft" is only about 2.5 to 3 meters across, "so it probably only held a few passengers."

Comment: These NASA photos are showing a lot of interesting objects, but these "UFO enthusiasts" seem to have overactive imaginations.Yes, there are plenty of phenomena ignored and ridiculed by mainstream culture and academia that probably have 'non-mainstream' explanations, but some of the theories, claims, and connections made by these people are just ridiculous. Kind of like the 'Flat Earth Theory': pattern recognition run amok!

Unidentified buried object found in new NASA Mars photo


UFOs videoed by multiple witnesses over Los Angeles

This video shows the incredible moment that a group of bystanders at the Griffin Observatory saw not one, but two UFOs hovering above Los Angeles.

Chris Montague was with a group locals and had simply gone up to the well-known viewpoint to get a look at the city by night, and instead got far more than he bargained for.

What they saw appeared to be two burning lights in the sky, hovering above the city. In the video you can hear both the person holding the phone and bystanders all speculating as to what it could be.

When questioned whether the burning object was a UFO, a man responds 'It has to be, it's not even moving'.

He then jokes, 'We're going to have guys in black suits confiscate our phones on the way out'

Thankfully he didn't, and the video has since ended up on YouTube. While it's difficult to tell visually thanks to the low quality of the smartphone's camera the audio and comments underneath the video seemingly confirm that the phenomenon wasn't just your average 'weather balloon' incident.
