For over sixty years the UFO phenomenon has been capturing our imagination. In this time, all attempts at "reverse engineering" the putative craft have been futile. During the first decade or so, many researchers were inspired to work with the stereotypical "disc" shape and many attempts were made to develop prototypes of a flying "disc" while studying its aerodynamics. As a fourteen year old, I was also inspired to explore these issues to their inevitable dead end.

It was clear from the litany of conforming evidence that we were dealing with apparent magnetic field effects. But back in the 1960s, that revelation did not get us very far, no matter how clever we thought our knowledge of materials and electromagnetism. My first book report, in my junior year at high school, was on Keyhoe's book UFOs Are Real, which is still likely as good as it gets.

All that has changed now. Recent discoveries have finally paved the road to the reverse engineering of the UFO.

In the sixties, we faced two deal breakers with the UFO phenomenum. We had no answer for lift and no good answer for energy supply except a hand wave at fusion energy. We did have an answer for motive power and controls in the form of magnetic field management, provided the craft was light enough and/or the generated magnetic field was strong enough. Computer power sufficient to tackle this type of configuration was certainly on the horizon then.

Today we can reverse engineer the UFO as a design concept and catch up to the implementing technology.

First consideration

The craft is a magnetic field exclusion device. This is extremely important because that is the source of lift. We know that this can be achieved from our experience with a block of super conducting material. It follows that a skin of superconducting material will exclude external magnetic fields. From then on, the engineering is about craft density and both the sphere and the flattened disc optimize craft density. Thus observation is confirming the nature of the source of lift and no new physics is called for.
A superconductor has the ability to carry electric current without dissipation. The perfect diamagnetism of a superconductor makes it possible to levitate magnetic objects. Superconductivity, as we currently understand it, requires that the material be maintained at very cold temperatures.
An excellent analogy is that of a balloon. It has extremely low density compared to the surrounding atmosphere. We can surmise that the craft is set to float without motive power outside our atmosphere. This also infers that the small craft we observe are necessary for deep penetration into the atmosphere. It takes a fair bit of energy to get down to ground level. The flip side of this is that very large mother ships will exist in order to have a very low craft density. These mother ships are able to develop the power to accelerate in the interplanetary areas where magnetic field strength is much lower.
We now know that a first prerequisite must be a skin containing a laminar layer of superconducting material. This also infers an adjoining layer, both under and over that is magnetic solid state refrigeration (SSR). We can assume for now that each layer is a few atoms thick. Powering this up will exclude the ambient magnetic field and provide ferocious lift on the Earth's surface.

So how close are we to having the right materials?

Scientists have been experimenting with superconducting ceramics for over twenty years. Other types of superconducting material are popping up in the labs all over the globe. If we decided to manufacture a layer of such ceramic today we likely could do it without much trouble, but getting the right temperature profile could be a lot harder.

I recently reported on the discovery that super conductance can be achieved at the interface between metal and insulator at up to 30 kelvin.

Superconducting layer

The new research involved a lanthanum copper oxide compound that can be doped over a wide range of compositions, which was used to study a potentially new mechanism of superconduction. A substrate of LaSrCuO4 was used, and an epitaxy technique grew atomically-perfect thin films of three derivative compounds: an insulator and a metal that show no superconductivity, and a superconducting variant with a transition temperature (Tc) of 40K. By growing literally hundreds of combination of interfaces and film thicknesses, the researchers were able to observe superconduction at different temperatures, including superconduction at the metal/insulator interface.

While there is no definitive explanation available for this interfacial superconduction, it opens the door for further research into engineering superconductors out of non-superconducting materials. The small length scales at which the superconduction occurs may make it appropriate for micro- and nanoscale devices.

Nature 455, 782-785 (9 October 2008) doi:10.1038/nature07293; Received 15 June 2007; Accepted 25 July 2008, "High-temperature interface superconductivity between metallic and insulating copper oxides."

This first discloses that we are working on the problem at the atomic layer level which is surely what the idea of a working skin implies. It also suggests that a working layer need only be a couple of atoms thick. This makes the cooling task far more tractable. One could even envisage a mechanical system if it ever came to that.

Next we have this recent note from a lab in France that I covered in this post.

Refrigeration layer

Nanocomposites produced from metallic glasses could make promising magnetic refrigeration materials according to new work by scientists in France. The materials are as good as the best currently available magnetic refrigerants with some added advantages. Refrigerators using such materials would be environmentally friendly and more efficient than existing devices that rely on a vapour cycle. "Magnetic refrigeration is an environmentally friendly cooling technology, unlike the gas-compression refrigerators used today," team member Stéphane Gorsse of the Institute of Condensed Matter Chemistry of Bordeaux (ICMCB-CNRS) told nanotechweb.org. It uses no ozone-depleting, hazardous chemicals or greenhouse gases (such as hydrofluorocarbons used in conventional refrigeration systems). Moreover, the energy efficiency can reach up to 60%, compared to just 40% for the best gas-compression refrigerators.

New Refrigeration System Based On Magnetics More Economical And Quieter Than Current Technology


ScienceDaily (Feb. 12, 2009) -- Your refrigerator's humming, electricity-guzzling cooling system could soon be a lot smaller, quieter and more economical thanks to an exotic metal alloy discovered by an international collaboration working at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST)'s Center for Neutron Research (NCNR).

The alloy may prove to be a long-sought material that will permit magnetic cooling instead of the gas-compression systems used for home refrigeration and air conditioning. The magnetic cooling technique, though used for decades in science and industry, has yet to find application in the home because of technical and environmental hurdles -- but the NIST collaboration may have overcome them.
Magnetic cooling relies on materials called magnetocalorics, which heat up when exposed to a powerful magnetic field. After they cool off by radiating this heat away, the magnetic field is removed, and their temperature drops again, this time dramatically. The effect can be used in a classic refrigeration cycle, and scientists have attained temperatures of nearly absolute zero this way. Two factors have kept magnetic cooling out of the consumer market: most magnetocalorics that function at close to room temperature require both the prohibitively expensive rare metal gadolinium and arsenic, a deadly toxin.

But conventional gas-compression refrigerators have their own drawbacks. They commonly use hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs), greenhouse gases that can contribute to climate change if they escape into the atmosphere. In addition, it is becoming increasingly difficult to improve traditional refrigeration. "The efficiency of the gas cycle has pretty much maxed out," said Jeff Lynn of NCNR. "The idea is to replace that cycle with something else."

The alloy the team has found—a mixture of manganese, iron, phosphorus and germanium -- is not merely the first near-room-temperature magnetocaloric to contain neither gadolinium nor arsenic—rendering it both safer and cheaper—but also it has such strong magnetocaloric properties that a system based on it could rival gas compression in efficiency.

Working alongside (and inspired by) visiting scientists from the Beijing University of Technology, the team used NIST’s neutron diffraction equipment to analyze the novel alloy. They found that when exposed to a magnetic field, the newfound material's crystal structure completely changes, which explains its exceptional performance.

"Understanding how to fine-tune this change in crystal structure may allow us to get our alloy's efficiency even higher," says NIST crystallographer Qing Huang. "We are still playing with the composition, and if we can get it to magnetize uniformly, we may be able to further improve the efficiency."

Members of the collaboration include scientists from NIST, Beijing University of Technology, Princeton University and McGill University. Funding for the project was provided by NIST.

They have developed a metal glass that acts as a magnetic solid state refrigerant (SSR) with an effective range of around 100K. This is extraordinary compared to prior experience which achieved only 10K. Thus we can envisage a sandwich of three to four layers of metal glass with an operating range of as much as 300K to 400K, which is more than enough to strip heat away from a superconducting core layer.

The idea of a multilayered sandwich of specially engineered metal glass and a superconducting core is completely viable. We have found the first examples and it is a matter of chasing down the right combination to manufacture a skin for a magnetic exclusion vessel. It will not be easy or easy to convert that knowledge into a manufactured product, but we know now that this can be done.

Energy storage

Then there is the problem of energy storage. Here EEStor is leading the way with ultra capacitors storing energy in micron and nanometer sized balls. The astounding thing about this research is that the first published application patent was for a battery skin inside body armor.



These recent patent disclosures have opened the door to a superior energy storage system that allows the fabrication of a battery skin. This means that this skin can be added to the inside of the exclusion skin of a UFO providing a massive energy storage capability. This is particularly true as we advance this technology with progressive improvements.
One last addition to this skin sandwich is an outer layer of graphene [above]. This is a newly discovered substance and represents a new form of our old friend carbon. It is the strongest known material and forms a flat layer of tightly bound carbon atoms that will conduct electricity. It will be on the outer surface of the skin and naturally accommodate externally generated magnetic fields and currents. It may also absorb visible light as does graphite and carbon itself. Again, here is my link on the subject.

Therefore our working skin can be assembled in layers of at least from the outside inward of graphene, SSR, ceramic superconductor, SSR and EEStor energy storage skin. We can also anticipate an additional layer of circuitry and metal glass on the inside.
It should be even tough and strong. The graphene layer was suggested by observations made regarding the Pomare disc which is most likely the best known report of a likely lost component of an UFO. The observations are over a decade old and it was made long before graphene was discovered in 2004. Yet I recognized the importance of the Pomare observations because of the outer graphene and the interior metglas and an open edge that revealed layering to the eyeball. I have long anticipated such layering of ceramics and metal glass, but it is just now that the practicalities are been addressed in our labs. I imagine that I was the only reader not surprised by the reported description of the Pomare Disc.

We now have our magnetic field exclusion device that rides the magnetic fields of earth and the solar system like a soap bubble.

The remaining question is how to accommodate magnetic fields generated by the electron flow through the other layers. It could even be that the magnetic exclusion can be used to facilitate the refrigeration aspect. All of this will be exciting work for the lab. There is obviously plenty to do, but it is now directed and understood. And yes, we need to round up the Pomare Disc and other artifacts if possible because it surely is a short cut.

Second consideration

For our next trick we need to move this bubble around. Here at least we have an option. We need to run a powerful current in a ring around the craft orthogonal to the desired direction of motion. This will induce a strong magnetic field as a torus [above] around the current ring. We obviously need to vary the direction of this ring to guide the motion of the craft as the induced field reacts with the external magnetic environment.

At this point it is natural to assume that we are describing physical current guides, but recall that the graphene surface is very conductive even if it is adjacent to a magnetic field exclusion surface. It becomes easy to also envisage a strong current flow from the top and bottom around the rims creating very powerful magnetic fields with a fair bit of directionality control.

We postulate that any magnetic field configuration imaginable can be generated around this bubble without been too difficult from an engineering design perspective. This is a bit of a hand wave, but we all know that we have been dealing with exactly these issues for two hundred years. It is a nice engineering challenge to arrive at an elegant solution.

Third consideration

We need a lot of electrical power to operate this craft and that means access to a small compact fusion power device. The obvious device protocol that satisfies our needs is the focus fusion device now been advanced. It consists of an anode barrel surrounded by eight copper posts acting as cathodes [ see below].

A pulse of current originating in a capacitor jumps from the cathode into the anode forming a strongly wound bundle of plasma filaments that arrive at the bottom of the barrel forming a plasmoid that contains the reactants and hurls them together at the temperatures needed. Work has begun to fine tune the device and discover its limits but a pulse of ions generates a current pulse in one direction and further energy must be bled of in the other direction. It is all very promising and actually looks just like what the doctor ordered.

A next stage may see graphene replace copper in the cathode and anode which should be a major improvement. Again I reported on the device and also posted the company's slide show in the second link. The slide show is very compelling and it is easy to imagine the copper been replaced by graphene which is almost a super conductor in its own right. It is worth the effort to work through each slide.



We have a prospective device that can be built small enough and powerful enough to provide all the necessary power to operate this UFO design. It apparently works now, but needs to be brought up to and past break even as is true for all fusion systems to date. This still looks like it is very close to operational success and deserves maximum support.


All the ingredients for an operational UFO are today in the laboratory been advanced at a very quick pace. We have already mastered digital control systems and the related hardware. We are about to master the manufacture of multilayered atomic skins able to produce the needed characteristics. And the direct fusion device needs a major research drive using graphene in its construction. These problems are hardly trivial but they are very close to solution if not in fact solved. Most importantly, we now know what we must focus our research efforts on and why we must.

Once we master manufacture of the skin, it will be possible to build space craft of very large size able to lift off the Earth on powering up. It just will not be able to land quite so easily. It will be necessary to develop small craft such as the observed UFOs in order to get down to the surface. That will likely be quite a bit more difficult than the larger craft and will possibly delay a full deployment of the technology.
<![CDATA[VISUALLY CONFIRMED: Enormous Craft Detected on Moon]]>Mon, 20 Jan 2014 23:13:16 GMThttp://www.mufon.com/extra-terrestrial-craft/visually-confirmed-enormous-craft-detected-on-moonBy Unknown Author on January 20th, 2014 on TurnerRadioNetwork.com Picture
January 18, 2014 -- (TRN http://www.TurnerRadioNetwork.com ) -- At least one enormous object of unknown origin has been visually verified as having landed on our moon. As a result, on Wednesday, January 15, three Terrier-Orion rockets blasted off within a span of 20 seconds from NASA's Wallops Flight Facility between 1 a.m. and 5 a.m. EST (0600 to 1000 GMT) on hush-hush missions for the Department of Defense (DoD).

TRN has obtained photos of the unknown spacecraft and has an audio interview with an outside consultant from NASA's Meteoroid Environment Office (MEO) who confirms that for almost two years the U.S. government used the McDonald Observatory in Texas to track the approach of two of these enormous objects. A year ago, in January 2013, the objects had gotten to 200,000 miles past Mars when they suddenly vanished.

Realizing these two craft were approaching earth and might not be visible to NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter Camera (LROC) depending upon where they went, the Government reactivated the previously cancelled Lunar Atmosphere and Dust Environment Explorer (LADEE) to be launched to the moon on September 6, 2013. It took almost 100 days for LADEE to be placed into proper lunar orbit because NASA utilized gravity instead of rocket fuel to achieve this. By December, 2013, both the LADEE and the LROC found at least one of the two enormous objects had landed on the moon, in a crater the size of the City of Chicago.

All of this was kept secret until, quite by accident, the LROC images (which are generally made public) were uploaded to the publicly available GoogleMoon service, where intrepid users came upon the enormous object. Now, the whole world can see this "object" on the moon --- the secret is out.

How it began

"Dr. Eric Norton 1 " has worked as a consultant for the National Security Agency (NSA) and NASA for about 12 years. He has worked on many projects for the government, most recently with the Meteoroid Environment Office (MEO) which is involved in several research projects with the underlying goal of gaining a better understanding of the meteoroid environment so that the MEO models can be improved. They basically monitor the skies, track meteors and other objects in space.

On January 22, 2012 Dr. Norton" was called to travel immediately from his east coast home to the McDonald Observatory in Texas, which is one of the largest optical telescopes in the entire U.S.. He was booked on a flight out the same night and was met at the destination airport by an Agent from Homeland Security who whisked him to the Observatory on a matter of national security.
Dr. Norton said he was brought in with the understanding that his job was to aid in gauging exactly what type of composition these objects were made-up of. Were they man-made, natural or unnatural to anything seen before it?

Using the scientific instruments provided by NASA, Norton and his team were able to discern the fact these were not naturally-occurring materials. They were, to their best - but limited- understanding, some sort of metallic, carbon-reinforced material, several thousand times the structural hardness of what we have today; be it naturally-occurring diamonds or carbon nano-tube technology.

As the objects got closer, Norton and his team could see through their telescopes the structural features of these things in high detail. "They were shaped in the best way I can describe, as a three-dimensional L-shaped craft" said Norton. He said he used the term "craft" loosely because he doesn't know if they are piloted or vehicles at all in the strictest sense. "All we knew is they were moving and moving fast" he said.

By January, 2013, the objects had been tracked to about 200,000 miles past the planet Mars. At that point, almost instantaneously, the objects vanished from the telescope lenses. "It was almost like they flipped a switch; we couldn't see them on any form of radar we have or any visual medium" he continued.

From February through April, 2013, Norton and his team scoured the skies looking for the objects to no avail. Norton was sent home and told to be ready on a moment's notice to continue his work if needed. For almost 6 months, he heard nothing.  That changed in October, 2013 just before the US Government budget shutdown, when Norton telephoned a colleague and found out the enormous objects had suddenly re-appeared at our moon and had taken-up positions behind -- or on -- the moon.  According to Norton's colleague, all hell was breaking loose in government to try to determine what these things were, where they were from, and what they were doing.  There were all questions, but absolutely zero answers.


At the time this article was written, for over 1600 days NASA has been operating the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbital Camera (LROC) to take high-definition images of the moon surface.  Despite being active for over 1600 days, LROC has only imaged about twenty percent (20%) of the moon's surface.   Unable to re-task the LROC to go on a wild goose chase for objects that may or may not be near the moon, NASA had to come up with a way to compliment LROC but do so in a fast and inexpensive manner.  The solution: LADEE.


In 2008, NASA proposed the Lunar Atmosphere and Dust Environment Explorer (LADEE) as a robotic mission that would orbit the moon to gather detailed information about the lunar atmosphere, conditions near the surface and environmental influences on lunar dust. Scientists have long sought a thorough understanding of these characteristics to address long-standing unknowns, and help them understand other planetary bodies as well. LADEE was to be a NASA lunar exploration mission led by Ames Research Center in collaboration with Goddard Space Flight Center.
In 2010, the Obama administration cancelled the LADEE program because of budget cuts, but in 2012, when the objects for this story were detected, the LADEE program was suddenly resurrected.  NASA knew it would take over a year just to build LADEE and a rush order was placed to NASA's AMES Research Center to build the LADEE probe.

The probe was launched on September 6, 2013 via a Minotaur V rocket, formerly designed as an intercontinental ballistic missile for delivering nuclear warheads. To reduce fuel costs, the mission was designed to require 30 days to travel to the moon achieving arrival through the use of earth and moon gravity instead of fuel.  After arriving, LADEE underwent "check-out" for 30 days before beginning another 100 days for science operations.  LADEE arrived at the moon around October 6 and finished check-out around November 6.

In December, 2013 LADEE's Ultraviolet and Visible Light Spectrometer (UVS), which determines the composition of the lunar atmosphere by analyzing light signatures of materials it finds, detected something very large and very different from anything "lunar."  The object was located in a crater which is about the size of downtown Chicago.  It was L-shaped, like a wedge, gave off no radio signals but did appear to have seven areas where light of some type was either being emitted or being reflected.

Thanks to LADEE having found the object, NASA knew where to look and sent the LROC to grab high-resolution images.  Those images are classified, but low-resolution images from LROC made it out to the public via routine LROC publication. They ended-up as part of GoogleMoon where intrepid users found the object.    Here now, the low-resolution images of an enormous object, which was tracked by the U.S. Government for millions of miles before it soft-landed on our moon:

Perspective shot for location:

China Moon Launch - No Coincidence

In 2012, the U.S. confidentially shared information about the inbound "objects" with other governments.  Shortly thereafter to the surprise of many,  China announced it intended to land on the moon and launched its Chang e-3 in December.  That launch took place and China became only the third nation to make a successful soft-landing on the moon with its Chang e-3 lunar lander.  Upon landing, the Chang e-3 deployed a rover called YUTU. The U.S. has been in contact with China to see if it is possible to have its Chang 'e-3 moon lander or its "YUTU" rover travel this far to obtain more information.  No word if China will assist.

Worries in the U.S.?

The enormous object has shown no sign whatsoever of hostile intent, but whatever is going on up there seems to have the U.S. Government concerned.  On January 10, NASA's Wallops Space Facility in Virginia made a sudden announcement, with only three days advance notice to the public, saying THREE rockets would be launched from Wallops between January 13 and 15, between 1:00 AM and 5;00 AM on a classified Department of Defense Mission.

The short notice was unusual; the Wallops Space Center usually provides more than a month advance notice.  In fact, on January 15 three Terrier-Orion missiles were launched from Wallops within 20 seconds of each other.  Their cargo was not revealed to the public and the mission is classified.

The Terrier-Orion is a small rocket that is not able to reach the moon. It can carry a small payload about 120 miles into space.  So whatever the Department of Defense launched must have been small enough to fit on that rocket, yet powerful enough to be used as a defense, or perhaps to analyze whatever is on the moon.  Either way, the government's lips are sealed.
<![CDATA[Large Triangle Shaped Alien Craft Near McGuire Air Force Base]]>Tue, 03 Dec 2013 23:31:03 GMThttp://www.mufon.com/extra-terrestrial-craft/large-triangle-shaped-alien-craft-near-mcguire-air-force-baseBy Unknown Author on December 3rd, 2013 on worldufophotosandnews.com Picture
I’ve lived close to McGuire Air Force Base (now Joint Base McGuire Dix Lakehurst) my entire life. There are also several small rural airports for single engine planes and helicopters in the area, along with air traffic from Philadelphia, Trenton-Mercer, Atlantic City, North Jersey & New York area airports. After the time change in early November, the large number of air traffic in the sky has caught my attention on my ride home, but this encounter was different from what I’m used to seeing.

Conditions: Night/dark, clear skies (if there were clouds they were not noticeable or did not play a part in what I saw because I don’t remember them and there were lots of stars). My encounter: Driving home from work on November 20, 2013 at approx 18:15 hrs, I was headed south on Route 206 in Southampton, NJ  approaching the area of Main Street/Retreat Rd intersection, when I noticed an object flying about the same speed as a small single engine aircraft off to about my 1 oclock view (South/Southwest part of sky). There are several small rural airports for small size aircraft in the vicinity so I initially thought I was seeing a small single engine airplane lining up for landing at one of them. The object was flying (sort of) toward me, headed North/Northeast.

The object almost reached Main Street and made a quick 180 degree turn flying back toward Red Lion Rd, headed South/Southwest again. As I passed Main Street, trees along Route 206 started occasionally blocking my view, but in between breaks in the trees I was able to see it make two more quick turns flying in a criss-cross pattern over the wooded and farm areas in the vicinity of Red Lion & Hilliards Bridge Rds before disappearing from my view again. I initially assumed it was a plane positioning itself to land at the Red Lion Airport, but the sudden quick turns I witnessed from the craft and the triangle light pattern on the underside of the craft left me puzzled. As I continued travelling down Route 206, each time there was a clearing/opening in the trees I would see the aircraft. I kept watching toward the airport to see if I could catch it landing when the trees opened up again. As I approached the area of Ridge Rd I realized the craft was now headed in a path that would cross over route 206, from approx West/Southwest toward East/Northeast. It had also slowed down quite a bit and, as I got closer, I realized it was going to cross over the highway right over top of me.

At this point I also realized the craft was much larger than a small single engine plane. Because we are in close proximity to the military base and this is the exact location where Ive encountered military aircraft positioning themselves for landing I now assumed it was military aircraft. I opened my sun/moon roof and cracked my windows so I could hear the plane as it went over me. As we intersected each other the craft seemed a little slower and lower than what I am used to seeing on this flight path. It had an engine noise, but was much quieter and had less of a rumble than the usual large military aircraft that had fly over me before. I could see a small portion of the underside of the aircraft between the three bright white lights and it appeared to be same color and/or pattern (maybe panels?) I would expect to see on the underside of a large airplane. The silhouette against the night sky also appeared that the object itself was triangle in shape with one solid white light at each corner, explaining the triange light pattern. After the object flew over me it took about 15 seconds (give or take a couple seconds) to reach the Red Lion Circle where the sky is much more open.

As I went around the circle and looked back to where I would expect the object to be flying I could not locate this aircraft again. I consider myself to be a skeptical person, but I am opened to the possibility of unexplained experiences. After thinking about it, several things did not make sense to me. 1) The initial flight pattern I witnessed seemed too quick and sudden for this large of an aircraft. 2) I wondered the possibility I had seen two different aircraft, but I really do not think so. The light pattern is what caught my attention. The three solid, bright, white lights in a triangle pattern with no other lights. All aircraft I remember seeing usually have at least one or more blinking lights somewhere on the plane, sometimes in a different color. This did not. 3) The craft was also flying much lower and slower than usual, since it was still several miles (maybe even 10 or more miles) to the runway at JBMDL. 4) Where did it go when I looked back for it about 15 seconds after it flew over me? 4)

I also thought about the possibility it was a drone since there is a lot of talk about drones these days. It seemed a little larger than I would expect of a drone, but I dont know a lot about them. It did have an engine sound, although quieter and less of a rumble than I would normally expect from aircraft of that size. Technology is ever changing, so who knows. At this point I have not been able to put a name to what I saw, so it is (to me) a UFO. Would love to know if there is a valid explanation or if anyone else saw what I saw that night. NOTE : The above image is a rendering.
<![CDATA[Gigantic Alien Craft Photographed By Cassini! NASA’s Cover-Up Blown?]]>Sat, 08 Sep 2007 22:40:44 GMThttp://www.mufon.com/extra-terrestrial-craft/gigantic-alien-craft-photographed-by-cassini-nasas-cover-up-blownBy Mike Singh on September 8th, 2007 on AboveTopSecret Picture
At the outset, I would like to mention that the clearest photographs yet of gigantic alien spacecrafts published in the French newspaper L’actualite insolite had been posted earlier last year in my thread Alien Objects Orbiting Saturn's Rings? by balonO

Unfortunately, balonO’s post had been lost in the deep caverns of the thread and out of sight. Considering its importance, I thought it needed to be exhumed and discussed in a different thread as it deserves more attention than it has. 

That said, this particular photograph is corroborated by another taken in the infra red spectrum by the Hubble Space Telescope of the gigantic object near Saturn, and posted on another thread of mine here. This pic is reproduced below: 
Huge cigar shaped object clearly shown 
following a definite path in an orbit 
along the edge of Saturn’s ring. 
Pic: HST WFPC2, Space Telescope Science Institute (STScI).

Now for the photograph in the French news paper which is similar to the one above, purportedly taken by Cassini near Saturn….. 
It is in French, so what it basically says is that those objects are massive OVNIS (UFOs) photographed by Cassini near Saturn, and put under wraps by NASA. One of the objects is Earth sized and one over 50,000 Km in length (Four times Earth’s diameter!) 

How did this French news paper get its hands on this photograph? Unfortunately, we don’t have more info on its authenticity. Can the photo experts here try and interpret it? 

Keeping in mind the similarity with the HST’s infra red image shown above, it may be an actual photograph taken by Cassini. If genuine, the implications are mind boggling! Are we then seeing incontrovertible evidence of an alien presence in our Solar System? 

And another thing. Small moonlets/asteroids even a couple of hundred miles long have been mapped and named. These objects are Earth size and some more than 50,000 Km long. Then why have these objects not been named? After all, they’ve shown up in the official photographs taken by the HST. But then, that’s probably top secret! You can’t go around naming huge alien objects, can you? Smells of a cover-up, what? 

Whatever, the truth is out there in the rings of Saturn!
