Here is the UFO Headline News for The Weekend of Saturday July 15th/Sunday July 16th, 2017
Headline #1: Ophiuchus, The 13th Constellation of The Zodiac
Synopsis: Tonight, look for the faint constellation Ophiuchus the Serpent Bearer. From the Northern Hemisphere, look southward at mid-to-late evening in July. From the Southern Hemisphere, look around this same time, but overhead. From all parts of Earth in the month of July, Ophiuchus crosses the sky westward as Earth spins under the sky, and as evening deepens into late night. Ophiuchus is sometimes called the 13th or forgotten constellation of the zodiac. The sun passes in front of Ophiuchus from about November 29 to December 17. And yet no one ever says they’re born when the sun is in Ophiuchus. That’s because Ophiuchus is a constellation – not a sign – of the zodiac.
Headline #2: Massive Iceberg Breaks Off Antarctica
Synopsis: In recent days, several satellites in Earth-orbit and a British Antarctic research project all have witnessed the birth of a huge iceberg – about the size of the U.S. state of Delaware – which split off from Antarctica’s Larsen C ice shelf sometime between July 10 and July 12. Project Midas, an Antarctic research project based in the United Kingdom, was the first to report the breakage. NASA’s Aqua satellite captured images, such as the image above, and the joint NASA/NOAA Suomi-NPP satellite also confirmed it. The new iceberg is no surprise. Scientists had been aware of and monitoring a growing crack in the Larsen C ice sheet for many years.
Synopsis: A Neolithic burial mound near Stonehenge could contain human remains more than 5,000 years old, experts say. The monument in a place known as Cat’s Brain in Pewsey Vale, halfway between Avebury and Stonehenge in Wiltshire, was identified in aerial photographs. Archaeologists and students from the University of Reading are due to excavate the site. It is the first time such an archaeological site in the county has been excavated for 50 years. The site is made up of two ditches and an apparent central building, which may have been covered by a mound, that has now been flattened due to centuries of ploughing.
Synopsis: The latest in a sporadic series of monster sightings on Lake Norman has appeared on a website called CryptoZoology.com. A 35-year-old Mecklenburg County man told CryptoZoology he spotted the “dinosaur-like creature” Saturday morning, while traveling on a boat with friends. The man described the creature as “splashing around in the water,” 10-feet-long and reminiscent of the mythical Loch Ness monster. It was visible for about a minute before dropping below the surface, he told the website. No photos were included with the July 10 article, which identified the source only as a local a salesman. CryptoZoology.com reports sightings of cryptids (fabled animals) and strange occurrences. This is just the latest in an ongoing series of “monster” sightings on the man-made lake.
Synopsis: The oldest account of Bigfoot was recorded in 986 by Leif Ericson and his men. During their first landing in the New World, the Norsemen wrote about manlike beasts that were “horribly ugly, hairy, swarthy and with great black eyes”. Among his accounts, Leif told of seeing huge hairy men who towered over him and his men. The “huge hairy men”, according to Leif, lived in the Woods and had a rank odour and a deafening shriek. It should be noted that Leif Ericson and his men describe these huge manlike beasts that were loud and foul-smelling as clearly distinct from the native peoples.
Synopsis: “OBSERVED: I stopped at a Nature Preserve to hike. On my way in, I had passed at least 14 people at various ways on their way out. I had walked down across the bridge and was looping back and it was about 4pm. As I was rounding a bend, I heard something big run away in the woods. I thought I had scared a deer and continued on. This is when I rounded the bend and saw a print on the trail going the opposite direction of whatever I heard scamper away. The ground was hard and the print was only about 1/4″ in the dirt. There were no other people prints or anything on the trail, As I’m taking pictures, something crashes in the trees above me… I covered my head waiting for a big branch to fall on me. After that, I high tailed it out of there. I left passing another half a dozen people on their way in as I made my way out. I never expected or was looking for anything on such a populated path. If it wasn’t for the fact I had heard something right before and right after I found the print, I would have seriously leaned toward a fake.
Synopsis: Archeologists in Mexico City say they’ve discovered part of the long-rumored Huey Tzompantli, a rack of humans skulls believed to measure some 200 feet in diameter. The tower sat on the edge of the Templo Mayor, a temple devoted to the Aztec god of sun, war, and human sacrifice. While its existence has been talked about since the conquest of Hernan Cortes, now that researchers have uncovered the skulls they’ve raised more questions about Aztec practices. “Something is happening that we have no record of, and this is really new, a first in the Huey Tzompantli,” said Rodrigo Bolanos, a biological anthropologist working on the dig.
Synopsis: Claims that five 1,700 year-old mummies look more reptilian than human have been causing a stir with conspiracy theorists. New images of the “alien mummies” were unveiled during a press conference called “The mummies of Nazca” in Peru by Mexican ufologist and journalist Jamie Maussan on Tuesday. The new images included X-rays of the mummified remains so Maussan could banish claims that they were fake or made of plaster. Maussan alleges that of the five bodies discovered, three of them had “characteristics that are closer to reptiles than humans.” He added: “Nobody has proved it is a fraud.”
