Were alien objects found on Mars?

An individual known as Rami Bar Ilan has been publishing pictures which he has blown up from sections of offical NASA Mars photos. These pictures appear to show small weather-worn pieces which can only be described as parts of some manufactured objects.  NASA has made no public statements about these pictures. If you would like to decide for yourself whether or not advanced life one existed on Mars, you can visit this youtube site

Lightning Sparks Mid-air Nuclear Reaction
After nearly 100 years of speculating that thunderstorms could trigger a nuclear reaction in the atmosphere, scientists have finally recorded the phenomenon for the first time. On February 6, 2017, a team in Japan observed a “clear signature of positron annihilation associated with γ-ray flashes.” A paper describing the observations was published in the journal "Nature". Lightning produces flashes of electromagnetic radiation called gamma rays. Researchers have long theorized that gamma rays, upon interacting with molecules in the air, can generate nuclei that aren't stable. which can randomly let off bursts of excess radiation including gamma rays, and result in a nuclear reaction  There was no actual explosion.These reactions show us a natural source for generating carbon, oxygen, and nitrogen isotopes that we'd previously never been able to confirm. And aside from the satisfaction of finally recording the existence of something which scientists have been chasing since 1925, this new data might help us understand more about how thunder and lightning actually work.

Surreal Landscapes on our Planet
Earth is full of bizarre, alien landscapes. Some are land formations molded over thousands of years, while others are human-made creations that have altered the planet in strange ways. From the bubbling lava lakes of Ethiopia, to a lake that has been nestled in the desert for 2,000 years, here are 29 landscapes that are so incredible, it's hard to believe they're real.   to see them all go to: 29 alien landscapes.

Object from another solar system visits us
Oct. 19 Rob Weryk, a researcher at the University of Hawaii Institute for Astronomy, noted a fast-moving object that sped its way between Earth and the Sun.
Weryk and his colleagues scrambled to secure more telescope time to study this mysterious, fast-moving object. They called in reinforcements in the astronomy community. Initial observations suggested the space rock was a comet. When new data showed the object lacked some important properties of comets, they decided it did in fact have to be an asteroid. But it wasn’t acting like any asteroid they’d ever seen. When astronomers examined and measured the object’s movements, they were stunned. The object didn’t originate in our solar system. It had come from somewhere else, and had traveled through interstellar space for who knows how long. Astronomers announced the discovery of the object October 26, calling it A/2017 U1. The University of Hawaii team eventually gave it a permanent name of Hawaiian origin, ‘Oumuamua, “a messenger from afar arriving first.” More information was published in "Nature", that confirms "It is the first known interstellar object in our solar system." Oumuamua is a cigar-shaped, 800-meter-long asteroid, red in color, with a surface similar to comets and organic-rich asteroids found elsewhere in our solar system," according to the astronomers little is known about its composition. But its existence is exciting enough. Astronomers believe Oumuamua is an outcast, tossed out of its home solar system

Della Reese Dies
Della Reese, performer and pastor best known for her starring role on the CBS spiritual drama "Touched by an Angel", has died at 86.Costar Roma Downey, said that Ms. Reese "has passed away peacefully at her California home surrounded by love." She added, "I know heaven has a brand new angel this day." Ms. Reese, who was born Delloreese Patricia Early in Detroit, started singing in church when she was six. She was recruited by gospel legend Mahalia Jackson to tour with her at the age of 12. In "Touched by an Angel", Ms. Reese plays Tess, a sarcastic angel boss who is a maternal figure to Ms. Downey's apprentice guardian angel. Ms. Reese said that she consulted with God about whether to sign on for "Touched by an Angel". “As clearly as I hear you, I heard God say: ‘You can do this. I want you to do this, and you can retire in 10 years.’ ” The series lasted nine years. As an ordained minister, Reese founded a church called the Understanding Principles for Better Living Church out of her living room . She delivered Sunday services there for many years, though the church soon outgrew her living room.

Government stops "flat Earth" rocket

 Mike Hughes, a flat-Earth conspiracy theorist,will have to wait a little longer to test his science-busting rocket Seeking to prove a conspiracy exists in which astronauts have lied about the shape of the Earth, the California man intended to launch himself 1800 feet into space. But the launch, which Hughes had said would take place Nov. 25, did not happen. The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) "got wind" of the plan and  shut down Hughes' launch, which would have taken place on public land. (And doesn't this suggest that there actually is a government conspiracy!) Assuming the 500-mph, mile-long flight through the Mojave Desert did not kill Mike Hughes, his journey into the ‘atmosflat’ would have marked the first phase of his ambitious program to prove the Earth is not round. Hughes’s ultimate goal is a subsequent launch that will put him miles above the Earth, where the 61-year-old limousine driver hopes to photograph proof we are living on a disc, not a sphere. At a fundraiser with a flat-Earth group, theories were discussed including the idea that  NASA is controlled by round-Earth Freemasons and Elon Musk is making fake rockets from blimps. We await word on what Hughes' plans are next.

Secret chamber found in Pyramid
Scientists, using advanced instruments, have found a hidden chamber in Egypt’s Great Pyramid of Giza, the first such discovery in the structure since the 19th century and one likely to spark a new surge of interest.  The mysterious cavity, described Nov. 2 in the journal "Nature", is at least 95 feet long.  Though the researchers aren’t sure whether it’s straight or inclined, whether it’s one large space or a series of smaller ones, this discovery has already triggered interest among archaeologists wanting to know its purpose.  30 years ago, E. Hubbard, a local psychic, channeled a message from a 19th century archaeologist who said the designer of the Great Pyramid was a genius who died before the pyramid was completed and whose mummy was placed in the special ch
amber along with artifacts and records.

Like a bad penny, 11/11 is back!

Have you noticed that the  number set 11:11 has been following the New Age community for a while. The number is of spiritual and numerological significance. Interestingly  11/11/2011 was the date of the great Japanese tsunami. This time it's Breathe 11:11 -  a global experiment in the form of a free app that chimes at 11:11 to remind you to take a deep breath, make a  heartfelt wish, and connect with others doing the same thing at the same time. The founders believe there are subtle powers of conscious breathing in the mysterious phenomenon of 11:11.  You are invited to go to (http://breathe1111.com/)and d>ownload the Breathe 11:11 app and tune in to the podcast.  They suggest you try it for a month, and see what happens. Just maybe it could make a change in your life and throughout the world.

UFO at the U.S. Capitol

A video shows something zipping in front of the U.S. capitol building on Fox News, aired August 13. It happened so rapidly, few noticed it. One wirness who lives in Rolling Meadows, IL,  brought it to public attention,  saying, “It flew in front of the capital building while I was watching Fox News.”  The object appears to be cylindrical and shiny. It moves quickly and steadily from the bottom left of the screen to the upper right.  So what is it? It could be a genuine UFO, a hoax or maybe a yellow frisbee. Take a look at the video yourself and let us know what you think  more info and videos

50-year old store concludes its mission

The idea of the Alpha Book Center was first laid in the mind of  Dr. John Rodgers in 1967. Its purpose was to be a place for metaphysics and New Age ideas. The store grew and moved steadily year after year, paving he way for other stores to begin. But, after nearly half a century, Dr. John decided the store had done its job and it was time to put it to rest. August 11 the store's mission ended when the door was closed for the last time..  The history of  the store can be found at encyclopedia listing. All unsold merchandise is available Sunday afternoon, after class, at the Omega Directory, 6418 S. 39th  S. 39th Avenue in Phoenix
