Here is the UFO Headline News for Monday July 31st, 2017
Headline #1: Waxing Gibbous Moon This Week
Synopsis: Tonight – July 31, 2017 – and in the coming evenings, people will see a waxing gibbous moon in the evening sky. The half-lit first quarter moon just happened on Sunday, July 30. Waxing means we’re seeing more and more of the moon’s illuminated side, or day side. Gibbous means the moon’s disk appears to us now as more than 50% lit by sunshine. On July 31, the moon is barely more than 50% illuminated, but the moon will be appearing bigger and brighter each evening this week. Full moon will come August 7 or 8, 2017, depending on your time zone. And thus, in 2017, the moon will all but obliterate the annual Perseid meteor shower. At the same time, the moon is now edging toward a lunar eclipse, then a solar eclipse.
Synopsis: People have been calling NASA’s latest statement about the upcoming total solar eclipse a “warning,” but the agency simply refers to the suggestions as “safety tips.” Either way, you’ll want to check it out. The list of best practices applies to the celestial phenomenon that’s set to occur on August 21, when an estimated 300 million people may be able to view a total solar eclipse. NASA predicts the total eclipse will be visible in 14 US states. But such celestial events can prove problematic because viewers and space fanatics don’t exercise the same caution they use in everyday life. “It’s common sense not to stare directly at the Sun with your naked eyes or risk damaging your vision, and that advice holds true for a partially eclipsed Sun,” NASA cautions in the official statement, which was released July 21st.
Headline #3: Three New Astronauts Join Space Station Crew
Synopsis: The latest International Space Station crew members have reached their orbiting home without a hitch, docking after a six-hour spaceflight at 5.54pm EDT. NASA’s Randy Bresnik, ESA’s Paolo Nespoli and Sergey Ryanzansky of Russia’s Roscosmos joined the other three members of Expedition 52 already onboard for a four month stint of scientific investigations. Commander Fyodor Yurchikhin of Roscosmos and Flight Engineers Peggy Whitson and Jack Fischer of NASA welcomed the new astronauts when the hatch was opened between the Soyuz spacecraft and the ISS’ Rassvet module, where the craft docked.
Synopsis: Our quest for extraterrestrial life may be closer to bearing fruit. As per recent findings published in Science Advances Magazine, scientists now have a “definitive detection” of vinyl cyanide, described as “the best candidate molecule for the formation of cell membranes/vesicle structures.” And given that cells are the building blocks of life, it’s not too far of an extrapolation to say that the discovery of vinyl cyanide on Titan, one of Saturn‘s moons, could be the discovery of a potential ingredient for, well, life itself.
Synopsis: Laser SETI is an audacious project to place specialized cameras around the globe to look for laser flashes from deep space. They have raised $53,000 of a $100,000 Indiegogo campaign. This is the first project ever to scan the *whole sky all the time* for signals from an extraterrestrial civilization. Laser SETI makes this possible by using multiple, redundant, and inexpensive detectors, located strategically around the globe. And experiments of the past two years have shown that this technology works. The Laser SETI campaign will fund the remaining development and the installation of two detectors in a fully operational observing campaign. This would be a prelude to large-scale production and deployment around the world. The two cameras will be enough to localize targets on the sky and examine the algorithms used in signal detection.
Headline #6: Is This A UFO Spotted Over Shrewsbury?
Synopsis: Richard and Margaret Pugh were leaving their house in Bicton Heath, Shrewsbury, to get a taxi to the airport when they heard a “low frequency buzzing noise”. Mr. Pugh said it was a “strange-shaped aircraft in the sky, about five hundred feet up.” It may look like a frisbee flung in the air, but the couple insist they do not know what the object, seen early Wednesday morning, is–or where it came from. Mr. Pugh added: “Whilst on the way to the airport at about 6:45 a.m. my family and I spotted this strange circle- aircraft.”
Headline #7: UFO Sighting in Saint Andrews, New Brunswick, Canada
Synopsis: I am visiting with my friend at his water front cottage in St. Andrews-By-The-Sea; the weather was perfect; at about 19:00 we are sitting outside on the deck when a micro-UFO–about 1\2″ to 3\4″ in size–passed between us moving from northwest to south; only I noticed it at first, and I watched it move up to the window of the cottage, stop for a few moments as if looking inside, then it moved away through the lattice-work of a cast iron patio chair, when it noticed I was watching it!
Headline #8: UFO Sighting in Newark, New Jersey
Synopsis: I was waiting for a friend in my car and I had the sunroof open when I happened to look up at the sky; I was looking at the clouds, and I saw two white dots moving–I was like “No way!”– they were moving slowly at the same speed; I looked hard, and saw around 10 objects, solid white lights, they seemed quite high up; there’s no way anyone would have seen it if they weren’t looking for it, they were very inconspicuous and they were not arranged in any formation.
