Here is the UFO Headline News for The Weekend of Saturday July 29th/Sunday July 30th, 2017
Headline #1: Mercury Farthest From Sun July 29th-30th, 2017
Synopsis: Depending on where you live worldwide, the innermost planet Mercury reaches its greatest elongation from the sun on July 29 or 30, 2017. That is its farthest point from the sun on our sky’s dome. Because this is a greatest eastern elongation, Mercury will be to the east of sunset. In other words, it’ll be low in the western sky after sunset. Look for Mercury in the western twilight, starting around 45 minutes after the sun goes down. Mercury will be pretty much on line with two much brighter celestial objects, the moon and the planet Jupiter. Since these two brilliant beauties will pop out almost immediately after sunset, let them help guide you to Mercury.
Headline #2: A Plane-Sized Asteroid Buzzes By Earth Undetected
Synopsis: Astronomers first spotted an asteroid about as long as a 737 passenger jet on Sunday and analyzed its path to determine it had made a close pass by our planet three days earlier. In other words, the big space rock slipped right by us without being detected and was only seen in our cosmic rear-view mirror. While the asteroid flew right on by without incident, it was a relatively close pass. It came within about one-third the distance between Earth and the Moon, roughly 76,448 miles or 123, 031 kilometres. With an estimated size of between 82 and 256 feet (25 and 78 meters), it was around three times as big as the bolide that entered our atmosphere in 2013 and exploded over Chelyabinsk, Russia, blowing out windows and causing numerous injuries on the ground. That house-sized bit of cosmic deris also had been previously undetected.
Synopsis: Up to half of the Milky Way is made up of matter that came from distant galaxies, having been ejected from its home during supernova explosions. This means everything in our home galaxy, including humans, is, in part, of intergalactic origin. Using supercomputer simulations, scientists were able to track how, over time, matter had been moved around the universe via a process called “intergalactic transfer.” The team, from Northwestern University, say their findings have important implications for galaxy evolution, providing an insight into how matter becomes distributed throughout the cosmos.
Synopsis: Last summer, researchers discovered traces of early medieval life at Tintagel in Cornwall, on England’s southwest coast, where the legendary British monarch was said to have been born. Now, they’ve returned to the site for another round of digging, to further explore buried buildings dated from the fifth to the seventh centuries. The striking ruins of a 13th-century castle still stand on the Tintagel headland, but the site’s history stretches back further, to the centuries after the end of Roman rule. It was during this time that King Arthur is said to have fought the invading Saxons. Tintagel is the birthplace of Arthur, according to a 12th-century writer named Geoffrey of Monmouth, who popularized legends about the king and the wizard Merlin. Still, there’s no airtight historic evidence that Arthur existed.
Synopsis: History buffs may have a reason to rejoice after a team of archeologists found evidence of a tomb, which they believe to be that of King Tutankhamun’s wife Ankhesenamun. A group, led by renowned archeologist Zahi Hawass, is sure there is a tomb located near the tomb of pharaoh Ay (1327-1323 B.C.) — Ankhesenamun’s second husband — in Egypt’s Valley of the Kings, but they are still not fully sure whether it belongs to King Tut’s wife or not. “We are sure there is a tomb there, but we do not know for sure to whom it belongs,” said Hawass. The article regarding the tomb’s discovery by Hawass’ team was first published July 7 by National Geographic Italia. The archeologist later confirmed the discovery to Live Science as well. He also said his team plans to excavate the new tomb.
Synopsis: If that T.rex chase scene in the film Jurassic Park gave you nightmares, rest assured: even if the dinosaurs returned to Earth, you’d easily outpace the fearsome beasts in an SUV. According to a new report published in the journal PeerJ, the fastest a Tyrannosaurus rex could have walked was 12 miles per hour. That differs with past theories that the T.Rex could run. This study varies from past research because it includes weight loads for it’s calculations. The study’s authors say that testing on a model T. rex revealed the king of the dinosaurs would have snapped its leg bones if it tried to run.
Headline #7: UFO Sighting in Dundee, Scotland
Synopsis: I was at the beach with family and we saw dolphins in the River Tay; my girlfriend from Bulgaria doesn’t believe that we have dolphins in the river in Scotland so I tried to snap some shots of them with my Sony Xperia x 23mp camera; I took several pictures while focusing on the water and when I looked back to see if I had caught any dolphins emerging, one of the photographs in the middle of the set taken, had a strange brown egg- shaped object in the sky.
Headline #8: UFO Sighting in Tampa, Florida
Synopsis: Watching for the meteor shower around 12 am–saw a couple go by, then a dim light moved in the opposite direction of the meteor shower and stopped and flashed an extremely bright light, hovered and stayed flashing this light at different levels of brightness, then started moving again very slow, repeating the flashes; I ran inside–got my binoculars–and when it flashed bright you could make out a black shape which looked rectangular.
Headline #9: UFO Sighting in San Bernardino, California
Synopsis: While looking at a bright, flickering star on the northern horizon–slightly east of the big dipper but below it–I saw a very slow object moving ; an extremely bright pulsating light that was moving in a somewhat “up and down” flight path; the time was around 10-11pm so the sky was nearly completely dark except for light pollution from the city and around my apartment; I saw no physical surface, but I believe it may have been triangular, since the light pulsed in a somewhat random order but kept going in the same direction.
