For anyone old enough to remember, the story of the Heaven’s Gate religious organization is more than a little disturbing. To refresh your memory, Heaven’s Gate is what many would consider to be a religious suicide cult. Its members believed that Earth was on the verge of being destroyed, and that humanity’s only chance for survival was to escape to a hidden alien ship that was conveniently lurking behind the moon.
However, escape in this case didn’t mean physical escape, but spiritual escape. In 1997, all 39 members of the organization committed suicide at their headquarters in San Diego, California.
In the months that followed the mass suicide, the media became obsessed with the group and its ideology. For some, the constant coverage translated into a lifelong fascination.
Pieces of Heaven’s Gate memorabilia, such as this authentic Heaven’s Gate uniform, are rare finds, so they always fetch high prices. This particular piece currently resides in Redditor fracasfoam‘s office.
When Americans first landed on the moon back in 1969, it inspired a wave of excitement about space travel. Many believed that this excitement would lead to settlements on the moon, which would make mankind an interplanetary species. Sadly, that never happened.
Could that be because the first men on the moon weren’t alone up there? It sounds like an outlandish claim, but judging by these NASA transcripts from the Apollo missions, there might be some truth to it.
03 08 20 18 IRP: That’s a spectacular crater. 03 08 20 23 CDR: Did you shoot some pictures while you were over there? 03 08 20 25 CMP: No, it’s just going by. We’d better get it later. There will be better times. 03 08 20 42 CMP: Boy, there must be nothing more desolate than to be inside some of these craters, these conical ones. 03 08 20 50 CDR: People that live in there probably never get out.
Some weird stuff was happening on the Apollo 10 mission.
04 06 13 02 LMP: That music even sounds outer-spacy, doesn’t it? You hear that? That whistling sound? 04 06 13 06 CDR: Yes. 04 06 13 12 CMP: Did you hear that whistling sound, too? 04 06 13 14 LMP: Yes. Sounds like – you know, outer-space-type music. 04 06 13 18 CMP: I wonder what it is.
04 12 09 16 CDR: What the hell was that gurgling noise? 04 12 09 25 LMP: I don’t know. But I’ll tell you, that eerie music is what’s bothering me. 04 12 09 28 CMP: God damn, I heard it, too. 04 12 09 29 LMP: You know that was funny. That’s just like something from outer space, really. Who’s going to believe it? 04 12 09 34 CMP: Nobody. Shall we tell them about it? 04 12 09 39 LMP: I don’t know. We ought to think about it some. 04 12 09 41 CMP: Did you hear it, Tom? 04 12 09 42 LMF: Yes, he heard it. 04 12 09 43 CDR: Yes. 04 12 09 47 LMP: Hell, I just want to get out of this suit.
03 12 22 39 I2_P: Really an interesting one, huh? Got a rugged one right out here with the central peaks. 03 12 23 05: Sure does. Really got a very complex central structure. 03 12 23 08 CR: It’s got one of the biggest central peaks. It’s a very unusual crater. But there are some dark areas in it and Farouk has gone on record saying that they are dikes. 03 12 23 37 CMl: That’s one right down there. Just shows how it dominates the whole photograph. Just an extremely bright crater. Sun angle just isn’t high enough for you to see it here …. Yes, they’re mining it, I think.
Google Earth is probably the best thing to happen to alien hunting in the last 100 years. With a simple click of the mouse, users can explore far-flung places and look for signs of alien activity across the globe.
There’s usually not much to be found, but every once in a while, true believers get lucky and find what they consider to be compelling evidence.
Last week, UFO hunters using Google Earth found this bizarre-looking complex in the desert just outside of Cairo, Egypt.
The complex contains two large, pointed buildings and some mysterious structures in circular formations.
As you might imagine, there is a shortage of facts surrounding the purpose of these buildings, which means that speculation is now running rampant online.
The last thing you want to hear in the middle of the night is the sound of high-pitched grinding floating through the trees. To me, this would signal the imminent invasion of aliens and I would be out of there in a flash.
The Redditor says the sounds went on for about 15 to 20 minutes before stopping. According to one commenter, what we’re hearing here is not aliens. It is actually a manual test to calibrate a nearby AM radio antenna. This is usually done during the day when people are at work, but this must have been an emergency situation.
The idea that Mars could have once been home to intelligent life is a theory that has become very popular in recent years. Discoveries like the so-called “Face on Mars” and the occasional sighting of flowing water have only fanned the flames of speculation.
Chances are, however, that you’ve never heard of the best possible evidence of intelligent life on Mars: the monolith on Phobos.
This is Phobos, one of Mars’ two moons. It’s a small, potato-shaped rock that makes its way around the red planet once every seven hours.
Many videos of “UFOs” can be explained away as airplanes or weather balloons, but this footage taken in the fall of 2013 in Minnesota doesn’t look like anything that could immediately be described as man-made.
At first, it appears to be your standard UFO affair, but then the lights start morphing and changing. Suddenly you’re right there with the Minnesota woman when she exclaims, “Freakin’ freaky!”
Apparently this thing can be seen daily in Aitkin County, Minnesota. So if it isn’t a UFO, what is it? Some kind of crazy firework? Many believe it’s just the moon through some branches, but one YouTube commenter claims that she took the video and there weren’t any trees in the way.
Last fall, NASA released thousands of photos from every manned Apollo mission that took place between 1961 and 1972. The collection includes about 13,000 images from the NASA archives, most of which are photos of smiling astronauts living the dream in outer space.
But Redditor my_newz_account sifted through all of the pictures and came across some bizarre shots. This NASA enthusiast is certainly not a space expert, but that hasn’t stopped the Reddit community from wondering what’s going on here. I’m inclined to share their concerns.
This looks like a standard photo of the moon’s surface…except for that tiny dot up there.
I’m going to assume that because NASA released these photos, they have a reasonable explanation for the craziness. But then again, Kipp Teague of the NASA Project Apollo Archive did say that the reason why he released them online instead of publishing them in print was because the organization was facing budget cuts at the time, so maybe it’s up to us to figure it out.
If you’ve seen any movie involving aliens, you’ve probably heard the fictional invaders utter the phrase “Take me to your leader!” Well, according to one former Pentagon consultant, back in 1954, aliens did make this request, and our leader at the time, Dwight D. Eisenhower actually met with them — THREE TIMES!
For decades, conspiracy theorists purported that Eisenhower, who himself was known to be enthusiastic about the possibility of life on other planets, might have met with actual aliens in secret.
But it wasn’t until 2012 that former Pentagon consultant Timothy Good came forward to say he knows definitively that Eisenhower met with extraterrestrials at Holloman Air Force base in New Mexico at least three times.
It should be noted that while Timothy Good is an academic, he is also SUPER into alien stuff.
Good says that while the public thought Eisenhower was vacationing in California, he was actually in talks with intergalactic diplomats called the “Greys” in New Mexico. Supposedly, they communicated telepathically.
And it might not have been just Eisenhower who the aliens met with. Recently released documents suggest Winston Churchill might have ordered that an alien encounter be kept secret, and that he met with Eisenhower to discuss what to do about the UFO sightings.
Of course any definitive evidence of this conference with extraterrestrials mostly likely disappeared when Eisenhower passed away in March of 1969, which is a tragic date for the space-obsessed president to die, considering four months later, Apollo 11 landed on the moon.
While filming, the show’s host, Congressman Renzo Reggiardo, stopped his interview so the camera crew could shift focus to the unidentified object, which appeared to be a fresh, elegant shade of light purple.
Witnesses say the lavender herb-colored object hovered in the sky for nearly two hours. Raelians (an international UFO religion that believes humans were created by an extraterrestrial race called the Elohim) have since claimed that the saucer’s appearance coincided with their press conference, during which they announced plans to ask the Peruvian government to build an extraterrestrial embassy.
