Investigative Journalism: Rich Hall Documentary UFO Disappointment

As a Rich Hall fan and UFOlogist, I was excited to hear him unquestioningly state that a UFOlogist, Dr. King, had revealed the  Mayak nuclear explosion in the summer of 1958, nearly twenty years before it was officially declared by the Soviet Union (1.10 in the video).

Hall has always seemed very questioning and criticising, putting himself out there on the edge of controversy, to criticise everything, including his own country the most!

So I thought that gave it more veracity. If it was just a King disciple who’d said it, I’d have questioned it straight away.

That’s also a lesson to everybody, not to trust anybody entirely; even those you trust the most!

Providing Doubt to Dr. King Claim

However, after reading more about King the last week, and relating to some of his thoughts and teachings, yesterday I found an article on sobify about Mayak saying it was reported in the Western press in the spring: ‘Although vague reports of a “catastrophic accident” causing “radioactive fallout over the Soviet and many neighbouring states” began appearing in the western press between 13 and 14 April 1958, it was only in 1976 that Zhores Medvedev made the nature and extent of the disaster known to the world.’ (sobify (.com))

I don’t know if King heard those media reports, or if he was in contact with Aetherius as he claimed, but it does create doubt, and I’d have thought Hall would’ve included that, as the diligent funny cynic he seems.

Aetherius X-File

I wanted to believe, because I like the subject, and like Hall’s documentaries, and what King was claiming, and who he was (someone from my demographic pushing himself to the extreme).

My books were written with the same kind of questioning and edited detail above, learnt over a decade of higher education, spent on the edges of critical theory, pushing the boundaries of the system to the right and left!:

12 Billion Year Old Galaxy’s gYgPOP coincidence

Wolfe Disk galaxy shocks scientists, creating paradigm shift in how galaxies form, according to media reports: as it formed within a couple of billion years of the ‘big bang’, three times quicker than it was thought such galaxies formed: under the premise that galaxies form when hot gases cool; and that the ‘big bang’ happened 13.8 billion years ago.

Two different telescope images are also interesting for greenYgreyologists and POP(PinkyOrangePurple)ologists, as they are those colours… and they are featured in the order that the greenYgrey world formed and the new POP age ended it… with the Wolfe name also a coincidence too, with the werewolf theme!

Image may contain: night and text

In another coincidence, unrelated to the greenYgrey world, but our very own location, the disk galaxy spins around at the same speed as our Milky Way disk galaxy: 170 miles per second.

So that’s how fast our galaxy is spinning in the universe, and…
our solar system spins in the galaxy at a velocity of about 155 miles per second, according to a quick search!

Planet Earth Orbiting Sun Update

And we’re orbiting our sun once a year; with the year inspired by the orbit, rather than being a coincidence. According to a good orrery I’ve used before, we are now south of the sun, in the 7 position on a clock.

In December we were at the 12 position on a clock:

So we’ve nearly gone half way around the clock in five months, and are due to complete the polar opposite next month…

Our Earth is also at an axis of 23.4 degrees, and the northern hemisphere is now pointing towards the sun, meaning the north is now in summer from the heat and light of the sun.

 

UFO Footage Real and Unidentified: Pentagon

USA military release UAP (Unidentified Aerial Phenomena – alternative to sensationalist UFO) footage, declaring them real and the aircraft unidentified article on MSN.

My response, starting with a little (rude) X-Files wordplay joke:

Why did the Pentagon release them now?
For Fox Mulder’s Sake!

Chile released similar military footage of a tic-tac shaped UAP (UFO) from 2014 in 2017: available online.
Not far from the USA for us, and a short step for a bullet-speed aircraft.
Most countries in the world have many UFO cases, with some American documentary series collecting the most notable as those countries’ Roswell: Mexico, Brazil, Russia etc.
If they are alien, I don’t think they are more of a threat to us than we already face from fellow humans, directly and indirectly.

Background

While I’ve been interested in UFOs since childhood I’d become sceptical in adulthood; putting it down to new military technology, such as stealth; and while writing XaW Files: Beyond Humanity (it includes a little X-Files reference, but not much UFO!.. but was investigating my own brain through the writing mind!!).

Ironically, the year after publishing that (X-Files returned during the writing!) I watched the UFOs: The Lost Evidence series on Quest, and its new cases added to old reinvigorated my interest. Ancient Aliens had a lot of good info too, but got a bit much with claiming everything within its theory. Then Blaze channel arrived, with lots more American series from the previous decade. Again, there’s a lot of good info, but a lot that seems sensational and unlikely.

My latest books, full of the mysteries of the mind, and my self-learning mostly through TV and online about science and space, turned into poetry and prose (but not much UFOs!):

Fatboy Slim Closes mistYmuse 2019/20

We’re overtime on mistYmuse 2019/20 now, as we started early in October last year – it runs for the traditionally toughest four months of the year weather-wise, and puts a good spin on it by focusing on the late sunrises in the first two months, and increasing light in the second half.

British Summer Time to GMT (Greenwich Mean Time) / UTC (Coordinated Universal Time)

In October the sunrises seemed to be getting towards the late sunrise times of mid-December, which are ideal for the start of most people’s days, being between 8-9am across the UK; as well as giving more darkness for sleep.

As I wrote in a blog here on fmpoetry (October 22nd), focusing on the Leeds time, mistYmuse central!:

‘The sunrise times will reach their BST late peak on Saturday October 26th at 07.53, and with the clocks going back to Greenwich Mean Time (GMT)/(UTC) overnight, they’ll go back to 06.55 – back earlier than the sunrise time of September 25th (06.56).
They’ll continue getting later a couple of minutes a day, and will reach Saturday’s sunrise time of 07.53 again just over a month later on November 27th.’

GMT/UTC to BST

Now, in contrast, we changed from GMT/UTC to BST  last week, moving the clocks forward an hour from 05.48 on the 28th March, to 06. 45 on the 29th March; with the three minutes difference the normal process for this time of year.

The sunrises (really the time when we can see the sun, due to our planet’s axis tilt and orbit around our star, according to astronomy) continue getting about three minutes earlier (as if we’re climbing a stairs in a skyscraper for a better view, with each day a step).

As it took just under a month to get back to the time before the hour clock change in October/November, it will reach the March 28th/29th time of 05.48 over the 22nd to 23rd April: 5.49 to 5.46.

So enjoy the darker mornings and later sunrises this month, and for all those who’ve completed mistYmuse 2019/20 I praise you! (it seems a long time since Scooter opened it!!):

Try not to look directly at the sun; or spend too much time in front of screens.. and avoid groomers and covid like the plague!

Looking on the bright side, I read there’s a bright new comet in the sky that should be visible to the naked eye soon…

Equinox Poetry

It’s only a week now until the March equinox (spring in north, autumn/fall in south) and the end of mistYmuse 2019/20. Here’s some equinox time thoughts from yesterday evening:

The time has come
for the part
of our planet
that I am writing this
to turn away from the sun.
The light will last
another hour;
like passing headlights lasting
longer than the vehicle view;
and then evening
will become night.

In the week before
one of two
annual equinoxes
when the northern
and southern
hemispheres
balance sunshine
like no other time
light will return
in about the time
it lasted today…

Pagan Poems from a Certain Time of Music

Everything is all
over thrice small
so double suns
illuminate all as one:
sunallsun.

—————————-

Everything is all
and all is everything
so the pixies sing
high on the wing
through gold rays
flying ancient ways
tring, tring, tring
sounds wind bring
on photosynthesis
sky highway bliss
leaves to branches
trunk, trees’ haunches
Earth’s hum translators
emerging in whispers:
what a very thing
life is after all
is said and done.

ADHD Writer Creates Philosophical Poem While Researching Sun

Altering everything to all
allows enough space
for two suns: sunallsun.

Commented on

I had been searching more on our axial tilt (obliquity) and why it affects our temperatures much more than the Earth’s elliptical – oval rather than round – orbit; it’s because its not as oval as it sometimes looks in images. Good ol’ time and date website gave best explanations in the end!

TimeandDate website.

It included this great image showing clearly the tilt and distance:

Confusingly, it has the Earth on different sides of the sun in this other image, but I guess it doesn’t matter, as the sun doesn’t have north and south poles!?

Sunrise Sunset Times Seasons Insight

Over a month has now passed since my December 23rd post looking at where in the solar system we are on our planet Earth. Then, Earth looked at the top of the ‘clock face’. Now we’ve travelled around to 11 o’ clock, as we’re going anti-clockwise:

If Earth’s axis was more like a carousel swung from the sun the north would always be pointed in and the south out, as heads are inside and legs out, so north would always be in summer and the south in winter, but it is more like a toffee apple on a rigid stick, staying in the same position as it orbits the sun, meaning the south is pointed towards the sun on one side, and the north on the other:

Sunrise and Sunset Times

As we reach the end of January, sunrise has now dropped below the 8am mark in Leeds, mistYmuse (#mYm2020) central. It was at 07.55 this morning, according to the Time and Date website. Nearly half an hour earlier than the latest sunrise of the winter at 08.24, which included December 31st.

Likewise, in the other direction, sunset has stretched the light 50 minutes later, from 15.54 to 16.44. So that’s about an extra hour and twenty minutes of light a day.

The horizon cloud gap was back this morning and the light looked a glowing yellow in the gap, as if the colour was compressed below the cloud. Again, I don’t know if that’s an optical illusion!?

Moonday Poem for Pagans

Grilled tomato smoke
wafted greyer than air
as sunlight broke
through window to evoke
before Venus rose
a female soprano voice
emitted from the TV
triggering thought energy
in my brain synergy
the power of three…

to be remembered
half the day later
after seeing Venus
now bright in night
clear as day, as they did say
above new crescent moon.

27 Jan. The Moon returns to the evening sky and appears just 6o from brilliant Venus in the west after sunset. Today, the planet Neptune is less than 0.25 degrees north of Venus. If you have a telescope, try to see these two worlds in a single field of view. As January ends, Venus rises nearly 3.5 hours after the Sun and reaches well above the western horizon at sunset. Other than the Moon or Sun, it’s the brightest thing in the sky.
