This video shows what future astronauts would see from their cockpit: Mars turning below as they sweep around the Red Planet. Last month, ESA's Mars Express snapped images every minute to create a unique video that loops through a complete orbit of Earth's gorgeous neighbour.
Mars holds a special fascination for humans. Its relative proximity and its solid surface make it a tantalising target for exploration. Thanks to this new video from Mars Express, we can now imagine what it will be like to orbit the Red Planet some day, possibly searching for a place to land.
Last month, mission controllers commanded the Visual Monitoring Camera (VMC) to acquire an image of Mars every minute during one complete, 7-hour orbit. The VMC is a low-resolution, non-scientific digital camera originally used only to confirm separation of the Mars Express lander in 2003.
The resulting still images have been combined to create a unique video as Mars Express loops between its greatest height above the surface, 10 527 km, to its lowest, at just 358 km, and back again. This is the first such video ever generated from a spacecraft orbiting Mars.
A constellation of giant volcanoes
The giant volcanoes of Mars can be clearly seen at the start of the video, visible as a constellation of dark spots on the desert surface. They are followed by a glimpse of the Argyre Planitia, lying just north of the southern polar circle, before the spacecraft plunges into the darkness of the planet's night side. Daylight returns with a soaring ride over the spiral ices of the North Pole.
Near the beginning and end of the video, as Mars Express slows down during the highest arc of its orbit, Mars can be seen rotating on its axis. At the very end, Phobos passes far beneath Mars Express, and the tiny moon's disc can be seen as a dark circle moving from top to bottom in the movie.
The video clearly illustrates the highly elliptical orbit of Mars Express, with the journey around the planet starting slowly at high altitude and gaining speed as the altitude lowers.
It also shows how Phobos orbits Mars as well as numerous geographic features on the surface. The fact that the viewer enters darkness on the night side and comes back out on the morning side (and can see surface features rotating into the light) also shows how night and day are created by a planet's rotation, just like our own dusk and dawn on Earth.
TRIANGLE CRAFT SPOTTED OVER FRESNO, CA, Sunday, 8-22-2010 ... WAS THIS SHOT DOWN BY THE U.S. MILITARY or DID IT MALFUNCTION, CRASH and BURN?!
A clip from my film "Best Evidence: Top 10 UFO Sightings", which was made for Space: The Imagination Station in Canada (and is also showing on TVNZ in New Zealand). Case #4 was the 1950 McMinnville, Oregon UFO photo case.
Exclusive video from Secret Message TV reveals a UFO accompanied by an atmospheric hole recorded during a late-night summer skywatch at a remote canyon location in Southwestern British Columbia, Canada. Examiner.com previously covered a road trip to the same location featuring a Vancouver-based UFO videographer whose astral travels facilitate contact with extraterrestrial intelligences. In the video, the infrared nightshot point-of-view camera detects an object crossing the sky and strobing light at variable intensities over approximately sixteen second intervals. At peak luminous intensity, the UFO registers numerous clusters of dark pixels on the camera's three-CCD sensors, including a dark portion of sky resembling a tear in the atmosphere surrounding the object. Thailand-based Finnish composer Miika Kuisma recently joined Secret Message TV as a musical contributor, firmly establishing the Vancouver-based online video podcast feature as a truly international production.
Antigravity UFO, Tesla time travel, directed energy weapons, mini-nukes: four U.S. black ops in 9/11
This article is part of an ongoing Examiner.com series on U.S. black budget exotic technologies, their use in the 9/11 false flag psyops, and the consequent impact on humanity’s social and exopolitical future.
New computer analysis by UK researcher Richard D. Hall has revealed that an anti-gravity remote controlled UFO drone may have been used to hit World Trade Center tower 2 on September 11, 2001. Mr. Hall made this analysis public in two videos set out in the Examiner.com article below.
"[T]here's definite censorship going on, even within the major UFO community and the talk shows," says James Gilliland, founder of ECETI (Enlightened Contact with Extraterrestrial Intelligence) and UFO videographer extraordinaire. Mr. Gilliland provided Vancouver-based Secret Message TV with exclusive access to new footage of a UFO that descends from Mt. Adams in Washington State, turns and then flies below treetop level over the ECETI Field of Dreams. This same field is where hundreds of witnesses observed UFO's over the July 4th holiday weekend, watching as the mysterious craft appeared on Mt. Adams, changed colors and produced spectacular light displays.
"We sent some top footage out to all the UFO groups, national reporting centres - everything. [We] didn't hear one peep back from them," he explained, "They wouldn't air it". The entire 60 minute interview is also available as an episode of The Secret Message Report - Podcast Edition.
Starchild Skull 2010 DNA Results Results: This is what Lloyd Pye announced on months ago, and it is being discussed in our forums.
It seems that for many years the UFO phenomena has had its share of bumps and bruised along the way. The Ufology community has fought a long and hard battle to get recognition in the main stream world and change its view by the general public of the stereo typical tin foil hat wearing nutters that see little green men. Fuelled by several factors that have been stumbling blocks that have been mountain size for the UFO community, everything from deliberate hoaxes to discredit Ufologists to the silence of the governments of the world.
These things have given a negative atmosphere surrounding anything that has to do with UFO's. The other side of the coin is the giggle factor that has become a normal reaction when the topic arises publicly. For example, we all have seen a news cast where the news reporter of news anchor talks about UFO's with a joking smirk on their faces or tell the story in a half fast joking tone as if they are secretly mocking the story, but needless to say the ufology community pushes forward to new and exciting heights.
Over the past couple of years a few things have come to the public table to shake the foundations of the negative propaganda that even the most fervent of sceptics even have to sit up take notice of. Over the recent past we have seen many professional people coming forward to tell their take and personal experiences about UFO's and ET/ Human contact. One big example was the former Canadian defence minister Paul Hellyer speaking publicly about the governments part in the ufo cover up.
Countless hours of skywatching paid off. On May 30, 2007 I managed to catch a triangular shaped unknown craft on film during a night skywatch. The crafts lights are apparently different from known conventional craft. There are NO blinking FAA lighting on this craft. The craft made no apparent noise. Light traffic from the adjacent street next to my home is only heard.
The UFOs, sighted at Kumburgaz, caused great shock waves around the world and were part of the written and visual media from China to Russia and Brazil to Switzerland and will go down in the World UFO literature as one of the most significant UFO sightings. Nearly a dozen of residents at the Yeni Kent compound witnessed these sightings filmed by the night watchman named Yalcin Yalman.
First of all, the Sirius UFO Space Sciences Research Center studied the footage in great detail for ten days, and as a result of the study the Sirius UFO Space Sciences Research Center concluded that the UFO sightings were geniniue and not a hoax. On January 17, 2008 the Sirius UFO Space Sciences Research held a press conference at the Dedeman Hotel flocked by the high number of attendees. The incident was announced to the public at this press conference and the aforementioned sightings were part of the news covered in both local and foreign media, TV, and newspapers as well as Internet portals. Following these developments some parties who appeared on various TV shows, starting with Prof. Adnan Öktem from the Istanbul University Department of Astronomy Sciences, Prof. Mehmet Emin Ozel from the18 March University Department of Physics and Prof. Kerem Doksat from the Istanbul University Department of Psychiatry claimed with great prejudice that the footages taken in Kumburgaz were a hoax made up by a mockup or computer animation without having conducted an analysis or any kind of study.
Were there UFOs hovering near the recent Bruce Springsteen concert in Philadelphia?
On a sunny and pleasant 75-degree afternoon Saturday, Oct. 4, thousands gathered for the concert in support of Barack Obama. It was held in the heart of the city near the Ben Franklin Parkway.
One of the people at the concert took video of what appear to be four objects hovering in the sky some distance away and at a fairly low altitude.
It may be the first time that a UFO has been captured on video during the making of a UFO documentary. Airing next week on VisionTV's documentary anthology series "Supernatural Investigator" is the Gray brothers' latest film, "The White Mountain Abduction".
The subject of the film is Betty & Barney Hill, the first couple to publicly disclose that they were abducted by aliens. While filming at the abduction site in the White Mountains of New Hampshire, on the 47th anniversary of the event, the Gray Brothers caught a real UFO on tape.
The documentary follows Kathleen Marden (the niece of the Hills) and Stanton T. Friedman (Ufologist) as they retrace the route the Hills took that fateful night in 1961. While Marden and Friedman, authors of "Captured: The Betty and Barney Hill UFO Experience" were being interviewed in the woods a series of strange moving lights appeared in the sky behind them.
Cameraman and documentary filmmaker Rob Spence (Eyeborg) was on his game that night and managed to perfectly capture the bizarre event on high definition video.
Rocketeer Captures Strange Aerial Object. Received an email from Mark Cooper on October 20, 2006. He was wondering if I was interested in watching a video he had taken. This is a very common question that I am asked on a regular basis. But this video was different. To begin this video from taken from a CCD camera attached to a homemade rocket. A few days ago, Mark and his girls and launched a homebuilt rocket with a small camcorder inside. The video was excellent. At regular speed, he noticed an object, throughout the video in the western sky. By the way, there is also a large jet in the video. When he slowed the video down he could clearly see an object.
The drones arrived in the summer of 2007 and since then the "drone factor" certainly has rocked the UFO world with many reported sightings and in some cases photographic evidence has been brought forward to prove the existence of these bizarre objects. But when you sit down and examine each alleged photograph taken of the drone you can't help but feel that the entire scenario is a little too good to be true.
I had to share this with you....it is so weird. Enclosed herein is a recording of a saucer shape object for your observation and analysis to supplement the UFO sightings and subsequent alien abduction story I sent you on June 22, 2007.
On June 11, 2008, at approximately 2:52am, I was alone in the living room when I suddenly got a feeling that I should go outside onto the balcony and there it was again. My camcorder was not in the immediate area, but luckily I had my cellphone with me.
