Here is the UFO Headline News for Wednesday July 5th, 2017
Headline #1: Moon, Antares, and Saturn at Nightfall
Synopsis: Tonight – July 5, 2017 – let the bright waxing gibbous moon guide you to the star Antares and planet Saturn. We expect both Antares and Saturn to be bright enough to overcome tonight’s lunar glare. Although we draw in the stick figure of the constellation Scorpius the Scorpion, you might have some difficulty making out its fishhook-shape tonight. But the moon will drop out of the evening sky by mid-month, enabling you to see this constellation in all its starlit glory, For now, use the moon to find Antares and Saturn, and then let Antares and Saturn serve your guides to the constellation Scorpius once the moon has moved onward. Both Antares and Saturn are of 1st-magnitude brightness, so they are still pretty easy to see on a moonlit night.
Synopsis: A small number of stars moving so fast they’ll eventually escape the Milky Way may not come from our galaxy at all, a new study reveals. Until now, scientists have largely believed that such hypervelocity stars originate when binary stars get torn apart by the supermassive black hole at the center of the Milky Way, which consumes one star and flings the other away at incredible speeds. There are alternative scenarios, but none explains why most of the 20 or so hypervelocity stars found so far are all in the same area of sky, in the Leo and Sextans constellations. Now, a team of astronomers has used position and velocity data from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey as well as computer simulations of stellar evolution in the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC, pictured above), a small satellite galaxy near the Milky Way, to show that these speeding stars may come from there.
Synopsis: The threat of an asteroid striking Earth is pretty scary — and not just in all the ways Hollywood movies have depicted — but human technology has reached a point where it might actually be possible for us to prevent an asteroid impact if we see one headed our way. NASA has a concept for a tool that could do the trick. It’s called the DART (short for Double Asteroid Redirection Test), and the agency is finally moving forward with its plan to design and hopefully build the hardware that it needs to save humanity’s bacon.
Headline #4: SpaceX Aims For Wednesday Falcon 9 Launch From KSC
Synopsis: SpaceX might be ready Wednesday evening for a third attempt to launch a Falcon 9 rocket from the Kennedy Space Center with an Intelsat communications satellite. The Air Force has approved a potential liftoff at 7:35 p.m., at the opening of a nearly one-hour window at pad 39A. No weather forecast was available. However, SpaceX was not expected to confirm the mission’s status before Wednesday morning. As of Tuesday afternoon, the company had not reported the cause of the computer-triggered abort that scrubbed Monday’s countdown with 10 seconds left, in a repeat of Sunday’s late scrub.
Headline #5: Project Blue Book Origins-Part 2/Cheryl Costa
Synopsis: A little after 11 a.m. on Sept. 10, 1951, a U.S. Army radar station at Fort Monmouth detected an unknown, low-altitude target. The signal corps operator and an Army officer in the radar clocked the target with an approximate speed of about 700 miles per hour. The tracking station lost contact with the high-speed target as it neared New York City. The radar tracking event resulted in a great deal of interest, as well as somber military trepidations. For in that era, military jets didn’t fly anywhere near 700 miles per hour. While there were test aircraft that had brief periods of that sort of speed performance, nothing the military had could fly and maintain that speed. This incident resulted in the Air Force being severely criticized by the other branches of the military. At issue was the Air Force’s dismal handling of investigations related to a potential threat to national security, namely UFOs. In a knee-jerk reaction to the threat to national security criticism, the Air Force appointed intelligence officer Captain Edward Ruppelt to assume command of the UFO investigation project. The effort was renamed “Project Blue Book.”
Synopsis: Sony released a brand new teaser for “Close Encounters of the Third Kind” over the long 4th of July weekend, prompting reboot and re-release speculation. A new website referencing the 1977 original has also popped up to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the science fiction film. A video entitled “This Means Something” was uploaded to the Sony Pictures Entertainment YouTube page on Monday, which just so happened to be World UFO Day. The video features an air traffic control radar animation locating an unidentified flying object targeting one of its planes. While many fans expected the clip to be an unofficial announcement of a “Close Encounters” reboot or sequel, the studio actually intends to re-release the film theatrically for a week this September, Variety can confirm.
Headline #7: UFO Sighting in Mahopac, New York
Synopsis: This object was a super-bright red light with a white flash, stationary for five minutes as of when I saw it–it looked extremely high in the sky–like the height of a plane, but it didn’t move; eventually it did and when it did, it was in perfect quick, small movements–approximately three smaller movements followed by one movement; two other people saw this with me.
Synopsis: Mike Cataldo, now long retired from the Navy, served in 1973 as a chief petty officer in Mississippi. Like most of the country he was familiar with the Hickson-Parker report and never met or spoke with either man, but for all the years that followed he shared with friends and family another side to the story, something of vital significance that he finally decided to impart publicly late in 2006. He tried to locate a reporter in Pascagoula who wrote the original UFO story, and eventually was put in touch with Natalie Chambers of the Associated Press.
Chambers’ interview with Cataldo appeared in The Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal of October 21st, 2006, but it failed to make the coast-to-coast splash it should have, though even famed radio commentator Paul Harvey realized Cataldo’s importance and devoted part of his Saturday, October 27th, 2006 national broadcast to Natalie Chambers’ shocker.
