Here is the UFO Headline News for Monday July 17th, 2017
Headline #1: Deneb and Cygnus The Swan
Synopsis: Tonight’s chart has you looking eastward at the famous Summer Triangle. Today, notice the star Deneb, the northernmost star in the Summer Triangle. Its constellation is Cygnus the Swan. In a dark country sky, you can see that Cygnus is flying along the starlit trail of the summer Milky Way. If it’s darker out, you might recognize the Summer Triangle by noticing that there is a cross within the Triangle. The constellation Cygnus is that cross. In fact, the constellation Cygnus is sometimes called the Northern Cross. Just remember, the constellation Cygnus the Swan contains the Northern Cross. The Cross is – more or less – just another way to see the Swan. The Northern Cross is what’s called an asterism, or recognizable pattern within a constellation. In this case, the pattern is the whole constellation, pretty much.
Synopsis:The world’s largest currently operating radio telescope will be observing the nearby star Ross 128, which may be the origin of some very odd and inexplicable radio signals picked up in May. The Arecibo Observatory in Puerto Rico will again target the red dwarf star, which is the 12th-closest to our sun at less than 11 light-years away, to gather more data that could eventually help solve the mystery. Abel Mendez, a professor at the University of Puerto Rico at Arecibo’s Planetary Habitability Laboratory, described the signals as “broadband quasi-periodic non-polarized pulses with very strong dispersion-like features.” In a blog post this week, he suggested they could be caused by solar flares from Ross 128, by something else in the field of view or by a high orbit satellite.
Synopsis: A rogue planet spotted wandering through space on its own may be even stranger than scientists expected – as it is not one, but two objects. Scientists now believe that the object might actually be two tiny brown dwarfs orbiting one another – and is the smallest binary system ever found. Brown dwarfs are objects too big to be a planet – but which are not massive enough to sustain the nuclear fusion which makes stars burn. After observing the objects – known as MASS J11193254–1137466 – with the Keck II telescope in Hawaii, scientists believe they are two brown dwarfs which orbit one another. It’s thought to be the lowest-mass binary system ever detected. Writing in the blog of American Astronomical Society, the scientists say, ‘The team found that each component is a mere ~3.7 Jupiter masses, placing them in the fuzzy region between planets and stars.
Headline #4: The Search For Extraterrestrial Artifacts
Synopsis: The first workshop of the new German SETI initiative recently convened in the southern town of Freiburg, with experts in fields ranging from social science to satellite imaging on hand to discuss how to advance the search for extraterrestrial intelligent life.Michael Schetsche from the University of Freiburg started things off with a talk on the possible consequences of first contact with an extraterrestrial species, and how we might prepare for such an encounter. A symposium held at the Library of Congress in Washington D.C. three years ago had a similar theme, but Schetsche’s talk focused more on contact with artificial intelligence or machine-based life. Other talks had to do with SETA, the search for extraterrestrial artifacts, which will be one subject of future research by the German research network. Hakan Kayal from the University of Würzburg outlined today’s technical state of the art in detecting and identifying objects in space, whether natural phenomena such as meteorites and sprites, or presumed extraterrestrial probes. It was sobering that even in Earth’s vicinity we could only detect very large (kilometer-size!) probes, or those that had a huge energy output.
Synopsis: Mystery surrounds an epidemic of sinister black smoke rings that have been forming in the sky across the world. The freaky phenomenon dubbed as “smoke vortexes” have been appearing in remote spots in Russia’s Siberia and the American Midwest – with the latest one being spotted right here in the UK. Kimberley Robinson and her roofer boyfriend Danny Cooper were stunned to look out of their car window to see this black smoke ring floating ominously in the sky. The surreal sight is straight out of the 2016 film “Arrival” where visiting aliens use the circles to communicate. Kimberley Robinson, 22, was driving down the M62 near Birkenshaw with her boyfriend Danny Cooper, 26, when they noticed the creepy black mark in the sky. Full-time mum Miss Robinson described the circle as “the weirdest thing I have ever seen”.
Headline #6: UFO Landing in Dingman’s Ferry, Pennsylvania
Synopsis: Today, July 16th, 2017 at 11:49pm-ish I was getting ready to head to bed so I started to close my blinds and I looked up at the sky and saw a glowing green light–at first I though it was a plane but then it looked like a huge version of a green lightning bug and started descending to the ground and I realized then it wasn’t a plane–when it landed it stayed in one area for about 15 minutes; it looked like a extremely green light was sitting in the woods next to my house!
Headline #7: UFO Sighting in Laguna Woods, California
Synopsis: On Friday, June 10th, 2017 at 5:15pm it was a cool evening not a cloud in the blue sky– I was sitting on my balcony talking to a friend, I was facing east; while gazing at Saddleback Mountain I noticed a shimmering metal object in the sky and thought it was a plane at first; as I kept my eye on it I realized that it was too vertical looking to be a plane, so I grabbed my binoculars to see what it was and while looking through the binoculars I saw a pulsating red light coming from within the center column of the object.
