A UFO-like object floating in the clouds was caught on camera on the same day ten dead birds were found in a nearby garden.

Calum Sherwood, 23, was shocked to see the outline of what appeared to be a UFO while riding on a bus in Salterbeck, south of Workington, Cumbria, on Monday.

Sharon Larkin, UFO enthusiast and Mr Sherwood’s friend who lives nearby, found ten dead birds in her garden that day.

Ms Larkin claims that ‘dead birds are associated with sightings of UFOs’, and experts are divided over the cause – with some believing it could be a rare cloud formation, while others believe it could be ice crystals from a jet engine.

Just above the chimney is the strange shape Calum Sherwood saw in the sky in Salterbeck, Cumbria UFO outline: Just above the chimney is the strange shape Calum Sherwood saw in the sky in Salterbeck, Cumbria, an area which UFO investigator Sharon Larkin says is a hotspot for supernatural activity

She claims the area, which is close to Sellafield nuclear power plant, was a hotspot for unusual activity.

Ms Larkin said: ‘There is something about this picture. The line around the edge of the UFO is very clear and very specific.

‘I’ve shown it to other people and some people have suggested it might be an unusual cloud formation, but the perimeter is very clear and I don’t think that’s the case.

‘What’s really strange is that the day Calum took this picture I discovered about ten dead birds in my garden, the back and the front.

‘They were sparrows and blackbirds. It could just be a co-incidence but the discovery of dead birds is associated with sightings of UFOs.’

A spokeswoman from the Met Office said: ‘It looks like a it’s just a persisting circular contrail (a condensation trail of ice crystals produced by jet engines at high altitude).

‘There’s patchy high cirrus cloud around, so the atmosphere is moist enough to allow contrails to last for some time.

‘It’s hard to tell whether the contrail is above or below the cloud around it but we suspect that in some places it is below, and the grey bits are then where the contrail shadow falls on the cloud beneath it.

‘It’s unusual for a civil aircraft to be doing this sort of thing so it’s probably military.’

Ms Larkin said she had also heard unusual noises in the sky which sounded like ‘metal being scraped against metal’.

Mr Sherwood, who works at the power plant, said: ‘I was looking at the object for about 20 minutes. It was so strange.

‘When I showed the picture to my girlfriend Michelle, we thought it might be a UFO so we contacted a friend who knows a lot about this kind of thing.

‘I have never seen anything like this before and have no idea what it might be.’

In 2010 a man was walking his dog when he saw a bright solid red light moving in a northerly direction above the town.

He claimed he saw the object flying very low, beneath cloud level, before it changed direction and disappeared from view.

Residents also reported seeing triangular shaped craft in the sky and shining balls of light in 2004.

Sellafield is responsible for decommissioning and reprocessing nuclear waste and fuel manufacturing, on behalf of the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority.

The Sellafield site has been operational since the 1940s, when it was used as a Royal Ordnance factory supporting the war effort. The site is also home to the world’s first commercial nuclear power station – Calder Hall, which operated from 1956 to 2003.

Sighting: Morag Ritchie said she saw the UFO hovering over her house in Aberdeenshire for four hours

Today the site comprises a wide range of nuclear facilities, including redundant facilities associated with early defence work, as well as operating facilities associated with the Magnox reprocessing programme, the Thermal Oxide Reprocessing Plant, the Sellafield Mox plant and a range of waste treatment plants.

The sighting comes as a woman spoke out about a UFO she saw hovering above her house in rural Scotland.

Morag Ritchie, 50, of Aberdeenshire was awoken in the middle of the night by flashing lights in the sky and caught the shocking images of four blinking lights on video.

According to NASA, Jack Scudder—a researcher at the University of Iowa—has found “hidden portals on Earth’s magnetic field [that] open and close dozens of times each day.” Some of them are open for long periods of time.

Scudder says that these portals “create an uninterrupted path leading from our own planet to the sun’s atmosphere 93 million miles away.”

Called X-points or electron diffusion regions, they are located “a few tens of thousands of kilometers from Earth. The portals are created through a process of magnetic reconnection in which lines of magnetic force from both celestial bodies mingle and criss-cross through space. The criss-crossing creates these x-points.

The portals are “invisible, unstable and elusive,” opening and closing without any warning. When they open, however, they are capable of transporting energetic particles at high speed from the Sun’s atmosphere’s to Earth’s, causing geomagnetic storms.

There’s a way to locate them and Scudder has found it. He uses data by NASA’s THEMIS spacecraft and the ESA’s Cluster probes, following crucial clues found in the data from NASA’s Polar spacecraft, which studied Earth’s magnetosphere in the late 1990s:

Using Polar data, we have found five simple combinations of magnetic field and energetic particle measurements that tell us when we’ve come across an X-point or an electron diffusion region. A single spacecraft, properly instrumented, can make these measurements.

Above: This is how the magnetic portals look on the data gathered by NASA’s Polar spacecraft.

NASA is getting ready such a spacecraft in their Magnetospheric Multiscale Mission. A whole squadron of them: four ships that will be deployed around Earth and “surround the portals to observe how they work.” The spacecraft will launch in 2014. [NASA]

Much Kudos to dutchsince for his incredible work:

This is profound and disturbing.  There was a “drill” planned for March 20, 2012 in Mexico for a 7.9M earthquake “simulation”…. also on a separate note.. Barack Obamas daughter was at the epicenter on spring break:  WTH is going on?!

PEPE GALLEGOSAs part of preparations for the next megasimulacro March 20, state authorities of Civil Protection (CP) performed exercise tests before a cabinet to simulate the response to a contingency situation, an earthquake measuring 7.9 degrees on the scale Richter.The Institute of Computer practiced evacuation, meeting in a meeting, and revisions in the infrastructure of the building, said the local unit.He explained that “in the hypothesis of an earthquake of Richter 7.9 °, this exercise was installed immediately the State Emergency Committee, which is made up of members of the three levels of government to the attention of an emergency.”He noted that the difference between an exercise and the mock cabinet, is that the former does not moving any resources, and the other is organized in a cabinet which simulates the response activity that integrate all the emergency.He noted that the State Emergency Committee is a unified coordination group in order to consolidate all operational elements relating to health and emergency management to the restoration of Strategic Services.”To meet the requirements of the affected population in case of a contingency emergency the State Committee is divided into 14 groups, which work in a coordinated and efficient to deal with adverse events,” he added.These guidelines were issued by the General Coordination of Civil Protection Department of the Interior in September last year, which is applied in countries on the issue of cutting-edge prevention against earthquakes, as in the case of Japan, “concluded the report of Civil Protection.

Newspaper La Voz del Norte - Journalism of Truth: The government of Chiapas is ready for the mega drill

The government of Chiapas is ready for the mega drill
================================================== ==============================
Gazette on 13 March, 2012 9:41:00

As part of the Third Meeting of Cabinet authorities of the 3 orders of
government are prepared to carry out the Mega Drill to
be held on March 20 at about 12 o'clock.
Having made the installation of the "State Committee
Emergencies, "Federal, State, municipal and
Civil Associations held the last meeting of Cabinet with the aim
provide a structure in the control and coordination of resources in case
of a contingency situation.
As a special guest at this workshop was attended by the
Director General of Centro seismic recording instrumentation and AC (CIRES)
Juan Manuel Espinosa Aranda who performed in conjunction with the working group
communications a presentation on the seismic alert system, which
collects data and is used to develop prevention schemes
case of earthquakes.
For the realization of this workshop were installed 14 sets of
work in each instance where a representative delegated and which will act as
link to meet the requirements for the completion of the Mega
Mock.
Through the State Emergency Committee was set up a coordination group
unified in order to consolidate all operational elements relating to
care and emergency management to restore
strategic services.
Note that the Mega Drill will be the perfect setting for
test the work of this committee, which will allow us to evaluate the
current status of the State Civil Protection System to meet a
contingency situation.
In this exercise involving staff from the Ministry of Defence
National Secretary of the Navy, Federal Police, Ministry of Communications
and Transport, Civil Aviation Directorate General, National
Telecommunications, Ministry of Infrastructure, Ministry of the Field,
Ministry of Health, Ministry of Environment and History Nature,
Secretary of Transportation, Red Cross, Fire Department, among many others.
In the event attended by over 100 institutions and units of
three levels of government throughout the state of Chiapas, with the sole
purpose of continuing the work to implement the Mega Drill
on 20 March at 12 o'clock hour.
In this framework were announced management strategies
public to carry out the Mega Drill with Earthquake Scenario
Richter 7.9 °, which referred the action to be taken each
dependence and the methodology of work in case of an emergency.

Secretary of Defense (william cohen under bill clinton — testified before congress) warning of this being a possibility…

http://www.defense.gov/Transcripts/Transcript.aspx?TranscriptID=674

Q: Let me ask you specifically about last week’s scare here in Washington, and what we might have learned from how prepared we are to deal with that (inaudible), at B’nai Brith.

A: Well, it points out the nature of the threat. It turned out to be a false threat under the circumstances. But as we’ve learned in the intelligence community, we had something called — and we have James Woolsey here to perhaps even address this question about phantom moles. The mere fear that there is a mole within an agency can set off a chain reaction and a hunt for that particular mole which can paralyze the agency for weeks and months and years even, in a search. The same thing is true about just the false scare of a threat of using some kind of a chemical weapon or a biological one. There are some reports, for example, that some countries have been trying to construct something like an Ebola Virus, and that would be a very dangerous phenomenon, to say the least. Alvin Toeffler has written about this in terms of some scientists in their laboratories trying to devise certain types of pathogens that would be ethnic specific so that they could just eliminate certain ethnic groups and races; and others are designing some sort of engineering, some sort of insects that can destroy specific crops. Others are engaging even in an eco- type of terrorism whereby they can alter the climate, set off earthquakes, volcanoes remotely through the use of electromagnetic waves.

So there are plenty of ingenious minds out there that are at work finding ways in which they can wreak terror upon other nations. It’s real, and that’s the reason why we have to intensify our efforts, and that’s why this is so important.

In a sky filled with bright stars, this image appears to show a massive black hole in its centre.

But, rather than being a genuine black hle, the eerily dark ‘hole’ in this photograph is a cloud of matter –  known to astronomers as a dark molecular cloud – which blocks all light from passing through it. In infrared images, though, it becomes transparent (below).

The interiors of molecular clouds are some of the coldest and most isolated places in the universe.

The bizarre sight is formed due to a high concentration of dust and molecular gas absorbing practically all the visible light emitted from background stars.

Pictured is Barnard 68, which is one of the most notable molecular clouds and is towards the constellation Ophiuchus.

Astronomers say because no stars are visible, this indicates that Barnard 68 is relatively nearby.

But this is still about 500 light-years away and half a light-year across. It is not known exactly how molecular clouds like Barnard 68 form.

In infrared light, the cloud is actually transparent - showing that there's no 'hole', but instead a cloud of cold matter that blocks light from the stars behind itIn infrared light, the cloud is actually transparent – showing that there’s no ‘hole’, but instead a cloud of cold matter that blocks light from the stars behind it

But scientists do know that these clouds are themselves likely places for new stars to form.

In fact, Barnard 68 itself has been found likely to collapse and form a new star system.

In infrared light, it is also possible to look right through the cloud.

2011 WAS THE NINTH WARMEST YEAR ON RECORD – NASA REVEALS

2011 was the ninth warmest year on record, NASA has announced.

The space agency recently released a video which shows global temperature changes since 1880.

And in a sign of how the planet is warming up, nine of the 10 warmest years on record have occurred since 2000.

The average temperature for the world last year was 0.92 degrees Fahrenheit warmer than the mid-20th century baseline period of 1951 to 1980.

According to The Huffington Post, James E. Hansen, director of NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies in New York, said, ‘We know the planet is absorbing more energy than it is emitting.

‘So we are continuing to see a trend toward higher temperatures. Even with the cooling effects of a strong La Niña influence and low solar activity for the past several years, 2011 was one of the 10 warmest years on record.’

Massive US Troop Movements In California Raise Russian Concerns

A disturbing report prepared by the Ministry of Defense circulating in the Kremlin today states that Russian Military Officials were rebuffed by NATO yesterday after questions were raised regarding massive troop and war equipment movements in the United States region of California and said to involve over 78,000 soldiers from various countries.

Reports coming in from the United States verify these extraordinary troop movements are currently underway with videos showing massive amounts of tanks and other war equipment being brought into the California region by train near Santa Cruz [see video HERE] and Morgon Hill [see video HERE] along with reports detailing that areas of Los Angeles were cordoned off this week for secret military exercises.

Important to note, this report says, is that even though Russia had withdrawn in 2007 from the Treaty on Conventional Armed Forces in Europe (CFE) it was still able to get explanations for the transferring and movement of Western European and American troops from the United Kingdom under a separate agreement, but which was suspended without notice or explanation by the British government this past 25 November 2011.

Concerns over the military movements of the Western Powers, this report continues, are due to the United States and its European allies accounting for nearly three-quarters of the entire amount spent on armed troops and equipment in the entire world and that over the past decade have unleashed wars in various parts of the globe which they show no signs of stopping.

Russian military intelligence analysis of the camouflage pattern indentified on the thousands of military vehicles and tanks flooding into the California region [see both videos linked above] note that it is a variant of the MARPAT woodland pattern designed for use by US Marine Forces intended for use in urban environments located in temperate zones or tropical areas, but most certainly is not one used in any of Americas current war theaters of operation.

Analysis as to why these troops are currently massing in California, this report says, could involve any number of scenarios including: 1.) A planned US-EU invasion of either Mexico or a South American nation. 2.) Preparations to put down large scale rioting erupting in the United States. 3.) Preparations to assist the civilian population in the aftermath of a catastrophe caused by war or natural disaster.

Russian military analysts in this report note that Mexico could be a “prime target” for US-European military action as its Drug War which began in 2006 has claimed nearly 48,000 lives and during this pivotal election year is now threatened with disintegration as its drug cartels now have more power than the government.

Another analysis in this report notes the United States growing anger at both oil rich Venezuela and Brazil whose left-leaning governments are becoming increasingly opposed to American-European domination and increasingly siding with China and Iran against the West. Important to note in this scenario are that war concerns in Brazil have increased to the point that many are now calling for Brazilians to begin preparing to crush an expected American invasion.

As to the likelihood that these forces massing in California will be used to put down internal dissent appears to have strong validity due to many experts analysis, including Obama regime backer and billionaire George Soros who this week warned that a violent class-war is about to erupt in the United States and stating, “The situation is about as serious and difficult as I’ve experienced in my career.” Important to note in this scenario is that United States crackdown on protesters has become so violent that the international association known as Reporters Without Borders downgraded press freedom in America to 47th this week, an astounding fall of 27 places for a country that claims it has the most freedom in the world.

To if these troops massing in California are to be used in the event of a catastrophe we had noted in our previous report, Megaquake Warning Issued For US-Mexican Pacific Coast, that there is, indeed, a growing concern among Russian experts this region may be about to experience a devastating earthquake.

In our world today where the Obama regime has called for more of its troops to be deployed to the Philippines to counter China, has ordered 15,000 more of its troops to Kuwait in preparation for a war with an Iranian nation that is itself “preparing for Armageddon,” these strange and massive troop movements in California do raise a number of concerns, but which without the American people themselves demanding to know what is going on will, as always, leave these poor souls at the mercy of the tyrants who rule over them.

And to how truly barbaric the United States has become, one need look no further than Tariq Aziz, a 16-year-old Pakistani boy who offered to collect information on US drone strikes killing innocent civilians if it would help protect his family, but within 72 hours of making his offer was assassinated by the Americans along with his 12-year-old brother when the car he was travelling in was blown up by a missile fired by a drone.

If even children are now considered enemies by the new “god” Obama who now rules completely over “Battlefield Earth,” one must surely ask themselves what chances anyone has anymore… May the Lord have mercy upon us all.

A series of unexplained noises are being reported across the globe and the frequency of these events appear to be increasing. The sounds range in description from “bizarre and creepy” to “industrial and mechanical.” The sounds appear to be omni-directional and seem to have no single traced source of origin or horizontal source of degree graduation- leaving one with the impression they are coming from directly overhead or directly underneath the earth. The videos below are reports of the unexplained acoustic phenomenon. Are these sounds omens of an impending disaster, or the deep-churching in the Earth an indication the lithosphere is becoming unsettled, mistpouffers, or something else? You decide.

Unexplained noise recorded in Colorado by two hikers in August, 2011 some time before the 5.3 magnitude earthquake struck the state.

This incident occurred on January 11, 2012 in Malaysia. The sound is heard for three hours and the noise appears every three seconds from 3 am until dawn. The second incident occurred on the morning of January 12, 2012, the sound is heard for three hours and the noise that appears every three seconds from 3 am until dawn. This audio is successfully captured by one of the people of Kota Samarahan in Malaysia.

“Keep your nose to the ground and your eyes to the sky.”

For a morning, the sky looked like a surfer’s dream: A series of huge breaking waves lined the horizon in Birmingham, Ala., on Friday (Dec. 16), their crests surging forward in slow motion. Amazed Alabamans took photos of the clouds and sent them to their local weather station, wondering, “What are these tsunamis in the sky?”

Experts say the clouds were pristine examples of “Kelvin-Helmholtz waves.” Whether seen in the sky or in the ocean, this type of turbulence always forms when a fast-moving layer of fluid slides on top of a slower, thicker layer, dragging its surface.

Water waves, for example, form when the layer of fluid above them (i.e., the air) is moving faster than the layer of fluid below (i.e., the water). When the difference between the wind and water speed increases to a certain point, the waves “break” — their crests lurch forward — and they take on the telltale Kelvin-Helmholtz shape. [ Astonishing Video Shows a Face in the Clouds ]

According to Chris Walcek , a meteorologist at the Atmospheric Sciences Research Center at the State University of New York, Albany , fast-moving air high in the sky can drag the top of slow-moving, thick clouds underneath it in much the same way.

In the pictures [of the Birmingham sky] there is probably a cold layer of air near the ground where the wind speed is probably low. That is why there is a cloud or fog in that layer,” Walcek told Life’s Little Mysteries, a sister site to LiveScience. “Over this cloudy, cold, slow-moving layer is probably a warmer and faster-moving layer of air.”

Most of the time, the difference in wind speed and temperature between two layers of the atmosphere is small, and so the fast-moving air on top “simply slides smoothly over the slower-moving air like a hockey puck sliding along an ice surface,” Walcek said. At the other extreme, if the wind-speed difference is too large, the interface between the two layers breaks down into random turbulence.

Kelvin-Helmholtz waves form when the difference in the temperature and wind speed of the two layers hits a sweet spot. “What [these pictures] show is air between these two atmospheric layers that is just very close to that threshold for turbulence, and mixing to mix the two layers together,” he said.
