Here is the UFO Headline News for The Weekend of Saturday June 10th/Sunday June 11th, 2017
Headline #1: Jupiter Ends Retrograde on June 10th
Synopsis: Tonight – June 10, 2017 – the planet Jupiter pauses in front of the stars before resuming its usual eastward course along the zodiac. In other words, Jupiter is stationary on June 10. It ends its retrograde (westward) motion in front of the stars of the constellation Virgo the Maiden. This retrograde, or westward, motion for Jupiter began on February 6, 2017. What does it mean? Only that Earth passed between Jupiter and the sun earlier this year, on April 7. That event – called an opposition of Jupiter by astronomers – marked the middle of the best time of year to see Jupiter, since the planet was closest to us and brightest in our sky around the time of its April 7 opposition.
Headline #2: Something in Space is Killing Off Entire Galaxies
Synopsis: When we think about the survival of the human race we often focus on making sure our planet stays alive and habitable, but out there in the depths of space there are entire galaxies being killed off in a manner that is utterly perplexing scientists. A new paper (PDF) from researchers working at the International Centre for Radio Astronomy Research addresses the odd and extremely troubling trend and attempts to propose an answer for what exactly is leading literally thousands of galaxies to die premature deaths.
Synopsis: The California Department of Fish and Wildlife is investigating after a mysterious, ape-like creature was captured on cellphone video recently in the foothills near a hiking trail in La Crescenta, not far from the 210 Freeway. Jake Gardiner, who works near the area, spotted the animal while taking a stroll in the woods during his lunch break last week. “At first, I heard a bunch of strange noises in the trees. Figured it was just some types of bird or something like that,” Gardiner told KTLA in an interview on Tuesday. A still uneasiness came over him as he began to feel like something was out there watching him. So, Gardiner pulled out his cellphone and began recording as he tried to determine whether anything was out there.
Synopsis: Researchers in Myanmar have discovered a 99 million-year-old baby bird encased in amber . The ancient hatchling died when it was just a few days or weeks old after a blob of sticky tree resin fell on it, leaving half of its body frozen in time. Xing Lida, from the China University of Geosciences, led an international team of researchers in analyzing the three-inch specimen. Their study, published in the journal Gondwana Research, will help scientists better understand the toothed birds that lived alongside dinosaurs—and how they differ from birds living today. The amber encases the bird’s skull, neck, a partial wing, a hind limb and one foot. The hatchling would have belonged to a group of birds called enantiornithines, that lived during the Cretaceous period, 145 to 65 million years ago. They died out during the mass extinction event that killed off the dinosaurs.
Synopsis: Ancient Egyptian mummies preserve many details of the deceased: facial features, signs of illness, even tattoos. But not, it seemed, DNA. After trying repeatedly to extract it, many scientists were convinced that the hot desert climate and, perhaps, the chemicals used in mummification destroyed any genetic material long ago. Now, a team of ancient DNA specialists has successfully sequenced genomes from 90 ancient Egyptian mummies. The game-changing results give scientists their first insight into the genetics of ordinary ancient Egyptians—which changed surprisingly little through centuries of conquests. The sequencing success, reported this week in Nature Communications, “finally proves to everyone that there’s DNA preserved in ancient Egyptian mummies,” says Albert Zink, a biological anthropologist at the Institute for Mummy Studies in Bolzano, Italy.
Headline #6: UFO Sighting in Tucson, Arizona
Synopsis: (1.) I was on my apartment’s balcony (coordinates available on request) looking southwest with Sentinel Peak,mountain (32°12′37″n 110°59′32″w) visible in the distance. (2.) Movement of the point of light caught my attention out of the corner of my eye. (3.) At first I assumed it was a meteor but it didn’t burn out or hit the ground, rather it stopped completely and hovered for a few seconds before darting up and to the right.
Synopsis: My husband and I were driving along the roads towards Denali National Park; I took a picture of the clouds and the mountains and later, looking at the pictures, I saw the two bright lights above in the clouds–there were no planes in the area and the light was not reflecting off of anything–it seemed as if it could be “head lights” and these lights disappeared quickly; the second picture I even sent via email to the National Park and never got a response, you can look at it for yourself and determine what you may think it could be–it looks like some sort of craft? with legs.
