Mars Fossils, Vegetation and Life

A group of scientists, engineers and former intelligence officers familiar with image analysis who are working with the Filer Research Institute and have found strong indications of life of Mars. For years we have seen evidence of water on Mars that includes geysers and liquid water. This water can be seen in the wet tracks of both Mars Rovers as far back as the Viking 1976 landings. Dr. Gilbert Levin and Dr. Patricia Straat who was at the time were working for NASA devised tests to indicate microbiological life. These tests called Labeled Release experiments were positive indicating life on Mars, but the scientific findings were ridiculed and explained as a chemical reaction because there was no water on Mars for life. A national debunking campaign against the realization that life exists in space as been going on since at least 1953. Scientists, military, and the news media have all been ridiculed if they speak of life outside Earth. This ridicule is starting to fold based on the weight of evidence and the courage of a few people such as astronaut Edgar Mitchell and other key scientists.

Spirit and Opportunity find identical spherules- same markings

Yesterday, I spoke with Sir Charles W. Shults III of Xenotech Research who has found numerous fossils in the Mar's Rover images. He is convinced that Mars was once covered by oceans and lakes with live marine organisms. He has found numerous marine fossils that include sharks teeth, squid, fish heads, Trilobite fossils, and sea urchins. His findings collaborate our own. He feels that all types of marine life once existed on Mars. Also clouds are in Mars skies and large amounts of water are in the soil within a meter of the surface, and that reservoirs of water and ice extend perhaps a kilometer deep in the soil. See his great website at:

JPL image of Squid fossil on Mars.

The Mars Global Surveyor satellite has found intricately branched formations of treelike vegetation of radial symmetry and tremendous size. These appear as gigantic living organisms, sprawling hundreds of meters in every direction. They may be a type of tree or ground vegetation that grow to an astounding thousand yards in diameter. The author Arthur Clarke has been shown these photos and agrees they represent life. Indeed they are nicknamed Clarke's Trees and are mainly located at between about 60 and 82 degrees latitudes south.

Each year for over a hundred years astronomers have recorded the annual greening of the landscape on Mars. Despite constant statements to the contrary, the actual surface of Mars in the warmer months reaches surface temperatures comparable to Earth such as 80 to 90 degrees Fahrenheit. Each year, Mars as recurring Dark Dune Spots that are believed to represent living organisms. In early spring the dark spots can barely be seen and are a light gray. By late spring they have turned dark indicating growth. A Hungarian team of Gunti Horváth and others have proposed a very plausible mechanism for the growth of colonies of living organisms. During spring water melts, or water vapor is carried to the warming surface to encourage the growth of the living organisms. It is difficult to explain the apparent growth by any chemical or geological reactions.

It is apparently politically forbidden for NASA to admit the presence of life in space. I for one have been directed by London Control to intercept a UFO and observed it on our airborne radar.

I request that NASA give up the charade that there is no life in space, based on their own recent photographs taken by their rovers, the "Spirit" in Gusev crater and "Opportunity" on Meridiani Planum.

Asteroid shaves past Earth's atmosphere news service reports 23 August 04 The closest observed asteroid yet to skim past the Earth without hitting the atmosphere, was reported by astronomers on Sunday. The previously unknown object, spanning five to ten meters across, has been named 2004 FU162. It streaked across the sky just 6500 kilometers - roughly the radius of the Earth - above the ground on 31 March 2994. The MIT Lincoln Laboratory's asteroid-hunting LINEAR telescope in Socorro, New Mexico, US, observed the object four times over a 44-minute period, several hours before its closest approach in March. Lincoln astronomers, who have discovered over 40,000 asteroids and comets since 1980, quickly recognized the object came exceptionally close.

Despite having only four positions for the object, Steven Chesley of NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory was able to calculate its orbit because it was moving rapidly across the sky.

The Minor Planet Center published Chesley's results on Sunday in its electronic circular. "This was an extraordinarily close encounter and so the orbital change was quite extraordinary. 2004 FU162 was deflected by about 20 degrees because of the Earth's gravity. I've never seen anything like that before," Chesley told

The asteroid was around 30 meters in diameter - big enough to produce a one-megaton explosion in the atmosphere. Thanks to Skywatch-International Web Site

Theory Oil Reserves Bigger Than Expected - E.T. Might Live Underground

Cornell University Professor Thomas Gold says oil is purely geological, not biological, in origin; and life probably started underground, so look there for ET.
It's not exactly a theory of everything, but in his book, "The Deep Hot Biosphere" (Copernicus/Springer-Verlag, $27), Cornell University Professor emeritus of astronomy Thomas Gold says that life on earth probably started deep underground, where it still exists in profusion and that therefore is would be reasonable to look for life on other planets underground as well, even if those planets look quite inhospitable on the surface. The basic idea that a large amount of microbiol life exists in the pore spaces of the rocks down to depths of between 6 and 10 kilometers and arose in the following way. Natural petroleum almost always contains elevated levels of helium and also contains molecules that are unquestionably of biological origin. The evidence that a deep bioshpere exists has now been strongly supported by microbiol studies in deep bore holes. Drilling deep into the crystalline granite of Sweden between 1986 and 1993 revealed substantial amounts of natural gas and oil. 80 barrels of oil were pumped up from a depth between 5.2 km and 6.7 km.

Mars, like the Earth, will have internal heat sources, and temperatures will be increasing with depth. Water is so common on planetary bodies that it seems almost certain it will be present in large quantity on Mars, and there must then be a depth range in which it is liquid. If the surface temperature has decreased over geologic times, the depth range of liquid water would have moved a little lower. The surface itself and a thin layer below are cold, so that any water coming up from deeper levels would generally not spill over the surface, but freeze in the rocks.

Another big idea for Gold is that oil and natural gas, generally regarded as products derived from ancient biology, are hydrocarbon substances created geologically in the early stages of earth's formation. As such, they began very deep and gravitated toward the surface, rather than the other way around. And there should be enormous undiscovered oil reserves buried very deep, he says. Gold was the founding director of Cornell's Center for Radiophysics and Space Research for two decades.

These "bugs," actually archaebacteria, thrive in intense heat and pressure deep underground, without any light -- that is, in a truly alien environment within planet earth. There's no reason to doubt that such critters could exist on many other planets as well, perhaps including Mars and some of the moons of Jupiter and Saturn. Oil contains lots of bacteria because they eat the stuff, not because they make it, Gold says.

Connecticut - Disk

WINSTED - The observer walks his dogs every morning at 4 AM, and on August 10, 2004, he noticed a star like object flying low over Main Street that had slow moving back and forth motion. He states, "The object got my attention when it hovered for a short time, then took off straight up without making any noise and its shape was a disk." The sun was just rising and I could see its outline against the sky line about 1000 feet in altitude. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director

New York - Sphere UFO

EAST WILLISTON -- There was a bright light in the sky that was hovering over Long Island at 3 AM, on August 8, 2004. He got his video camera that was mounted on a tripod and began to video tape with his 360 X zoom lens. He states, "What I saw was amazing; it was round and appeared to have the landscape of a planet." There was a green corona around the outer edge of the circle with a black band that went across the circle horizontally. The object appeared to be pulsating. I checked astronomy websites with planets and determined this was no planet? Thanks to Peter Davenport

BROOKLYN - The witness just brought a brand new Nikon D70 camera with a 400 mm lens - and started taking images on the boardwalk of Brighton Beach on August 7, 2004, at 1:30 PM. He was photographing the sea, sand, sky, and birds filling up the memory card with a lot of practice shots. He went home and transferred all his images to the computer. My Dad noticed a speck at the upper right portion of a shot if a bird flying over the sea. He reports, "I zoomed in on the day time image, and my hair stood up because it wasn't a bird or a star." Later on during the day, I went to soccer practice with my Dad and again we saw something white in the sky, that was very mysterious. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director

New Jersey - Loud Noises in the Sky

GALLOWAY - The witness was awakened at 3:49 AM, from a deep sleep by a loud noise approaching her home on August 5, 2004. As the noise grew nearer the witness states, " I tried to get up and couldn't at first, although I was conscious I couldn't get up." Finally, I was able to go to the window and could only see clouds overhead, but the sound was oscillating, a roaring noise hovering very near. By now my husband was awake and he heard it too. We live near an air force base and a public airport so I hear planes regularly but not like this. The object hovered overhead for quite a while. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director

Pennsylvania - Five Lights in a Row

YORK -- At 4:30 AM, on August 8, 2004, the observer got up to get some water and noticed a very bright light high up in the southeastern sky, which was much larger and brighter than any star or planet. He grabbed the binoculars and saw off in the distance five horizontal lights very close to one another, totally stationery. I got my wife out of bed. He states, "By the time she came to the kitchen, it had moved further away and at a slightly different angle, making it impossible to see it as five lights. "Rather, by this time it was just one bright light." I called 911 and three policemen came to the house. They saw the light in the sky, which I photographed by the time they arrived. Again, it had moved further away but was still clearly visible. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director

Michigan - Flying Triangle

GLADSTONE - On August 5, 2004, the observer saw a round fuzzy light through his binoculars at 1 AM. He states, "I have reported these before but I got a good look at them through 20x50 binoculars tonight." From a distance they look like bright circles with a halo around them, but tonight I saw two within 5 minutes of each other." One was far too fast to see. The second, I caught for about 5 seconds through the binoculars. It came from the south fast and was sort of triangular shaped which surprised me. It was almost like a glowing paper airplane with pointed up wings. I finally lost it as it manuevered and finally disappeared. My neighbors are seeing them also. One of my neighbors is in search and rescue and has served in the Navy for 12 years and never saw anything at sea or out like this. I love tracking satellites and have loved astronomy since I was a boy and cannot explain these things in the night sky. I will keep watching. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director

Ohio - Underground UFO Interference

FOSTORIA -- George Ritter has been able to take video of UFOs near his home on a regular basis. The video taken on August 22, 2004, shows a UFO over a nearby farmer's field. Many of the videos appear to show the craft entering and leaving the field. The Fostoria area is known to have many underground caverns that could provide a base for these craft. The electrical interference is apparent in the image. Often when UFOs are present there are interruptions of electrical service and television interference. The field is now under development for new homes. Thanks to George Ritter.

Illinois - Flash

LAKE ZURICH - There was a sudden extraordinary occurrence in the sky on August 9, 2004, about 17 miles north of Chicago's O'Hare Airport. The witness a former accountant was walking his dog at 11:15 PM, and looked towards the Big Dipper when a bright white light flashed across the sky in front of him. This ball and streak was traveling south horizontal to the ground towards O'Hare Airport, at a speed calculated at a speed of 18,000 mph at less than 5,000 feet, possibly under 1,000 feet about 5 to 10 miles away. The streak or tail was two or three miles long. In summary, this occurrence was like seeing a shooting star, traveling low and horizontally, at an incredible speed. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director

HIGHLAND/POKAHONTAS -- On August 8, 2004, at 3 AM, the witness was returning from my friends house when a white object paced his car on Interstate 70 between Highland and Pokahontas, Illinois. He states, "I caught sight of this object to my right (southeast) as I reached the speed limit. I rolled down the passenger window to make sure I wasn't seeing a reflection or distortion in the glass. It looked the same. The object was illuminated in white light although it was somewhat dimmer than the full moon would be. It looked like a round tube standing on its edge straight up and down. Like the core of a paper towel roll. Except this one had a ring that circled the entire object like rings of Saturn. The whole object was as big as a penny held at arm's length away and hovered 25 to 30 degrees off of the horizon. As I drove it seemed to float a little higher and lower in the sky, but kept pace. I had my little camera with me so I decided to pull off to try to get a picture. But it faded from view. I had my police scanner on, but no one I heard reported anything. It was like a towel core on its edge with Saturn's rings around it." Thanks to Peter Davenport Director

Alabama - Flying Triangle

HOOVER/BLUFF PARK - A father and his daughter were driving back from fueling up her car, when they saw red and white lights through the tops of the trees on August 10, 2004, at 9:23 PM. When they came to a stop sign and a clearing, they saw a strange-looking craft flying northeast not too high up in the sky. It was composed of four white lights and two red lights, none of which were flashing, and it was traveling quite fast. It was triangular in shape with one white light at the forward point, three white lights in a row behind it, and the two red lights at the opposite back corners. There were no green lights and no 'headlights' that we frequently see on aircraft landing at this time of night. At arm's length, it was about one inch long and at about 1,000 feet altitude. It was really close, to me, closer than aircraft usually fly. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director

Texas - Egg

ARLINGTON - A dark object with a glowing green-yellow light was seen on August 10, 2004, at 11:55 PM, by two friends. The witness reports, "I just saw the weirdest thing I have seen since the big meteor a month ago." My friend and I witnessed an object flying across the sky unlike any aircraft I have ever seen. It was a dark oblong shape. The large part looked like a shadow almost. It was colorless but slightly darker than the sky. It had a greenish yellow glowing object suspended just beneath the large object. I thought at first that it might be a balloon and glow stick, but the object was traveling against the wind at a steady rapid pace. It made no sound. It looked to be pretty large and traveled west at least 1000 feet. We watched it for a good while, until it disappeared in the distance. It was freaky, but very cool. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director

Arizona - Cigar

MESA - The witness reports, "I was turning from Baseline onto Hawes Road going southbound on August 9, 2004, at 12:40 AM, when I saw a bright reddish orange blimp looking object." It was very bright, but then became a small light then back to a large shape then it disappeared. I looked over and another car was also stopped in the middle of the road watching as well." Thanks to Peter Davenport Director

Nevada - Objects Light Show

SPARKS -- At 9 PM, it started as a small white light blip in the sky, north of the city on August 5, 2004. and as it came closer, the lights changed color and started to splinter off into different pieces, going in different directions. The night sky gave a good background for the many colors. The witness states, "We looked through a telescope at these objects as they flew in many different directions, and found that they were actually huge round objects with lights going off and on all the way around them." This show lasted approximately two hours. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director

RENO - The observer was walking his dog at 10:08 PM, on August 5, 2004, when he saw a huge craft with two red lights flying over Eastern Reno not far from some commercial planes flying near Reno Tahoe Airport. Coming from the northwest was a strange craft with two reddish blinking lights seemingly connected, but at a distance that would fit between four commercial planes. I think I could make out dim stars between the lights, but I'm not sure. It covered the sky at a lazy speed. One commercial jet was at about 7,000 feet moving in for the landing loop they do from the south, and the jet was moving faster. I watched for several minutes, and stood outside my house watching as it disappeared over the Virginia Mountain Range. There was a pair of blinking aircraft-style lights, but very erratic in the flashing. I held my hand up and the distance between the lights was about four fingers wide too big for any one aircraft. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director

California - Silver Cylinder Turns Into Black Saucer

PAUMA - On August 3, 2004, the witness was driving northeast on Highway 76, at 5:30 PM, when he saw a silver cylinder shaped object flying straight down, then level off, changing colors and shape. The silver cylinder changed into a black saucer shape craft, and sped off at a very high rate of speed climbing to about four thousand feet. It was lower than the tops of the Mount Polimar when just vanished over the horizon. Thanks to Peter Davenport

MODESTO -- R. David Anderson took this picture a few nights ago August 20, 2004. He states, "I noticed a flash of light to the south of Vega at about 9:45 PM. I aimed the camera at the place where I saw the flash and I got this unusual object in the shot I took. The five points of light seem to all belong to one UFO. Also, I started a new web site if you would like to post the link so your readers can access it:

Oregon - Seven Fast Moving Lights

PORTLAND - Around 1 AM, on August 9, 2004, the witness was sitting outside smoking a cigarette when a small flash of light in the sky caught his eye. He states, "I looked at the white lights about seven in all as they moved in a V pattern to the west without any wing tip or signal." It moved forward then right without stopping. The lights then began going out as if the object had some thickness. The object was very dark or black in the dark sky. This incident only took a few seconds and the object moved very fast. My only explanation would be a B2 bomber with landing lights on; but I just can't explain the turn. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director

Washington - Orange Object

SHELTON -- On August 8, 2004, a bright orange object was noticed flying very rapidly to the southwest, at 11:30 PM. The object had no tail and was too fast to be meteorite. It was faster than anything I have ever seen, and was heading slightly southwest of our house. It didn't leave a trail like a meteorite would and it didn't fade out or just shot into and out of sight very rapidly without any stopping or direction change. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director

Canada - Disk

RIDING MOUNTAIN, Manitoba -- An object was seen in the sky to the southeast corner of the Riding Mountain National Park on August 11, 2004, at 1 PM. It was moving up and down and back and forth with blue lights around it with a red light on top. We watched it for about an hour and then went to bed. It darted back and forth in a small area for two hours. Thanks to Brian Vike

Panama - Cylinder

My sister was trying to video tape long strikes of lightning in the evening sky at 9 PM after she had noticed a lot of silent thunder on August 5, 2004. As she filmed a flying object flew right across her video screen clear as day? It's an incredible video how do I send it to you? It's a cylinder shaped ship that is not an normal aircraft. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director

Brazil - Man Snaps a UFO

SAO PAULO -- On Tuesday, August 3, 2004, "three men were driving on the Anhanguera Highway" in Brazil's state of Sao Paulo, when they saw something unusual over a field. They stopped the car, and two of the men jumped over a fence to get a little closer. One man had a modern cell phone with him, and took a photo of a strange, cylinder-like, silver object hovering a few meters above the ground. Under the object some dust could be seen lifting into the air. It remained hovering for 30 minutes and emitted a sound like several engines working together. Thanks to Revista UFO for August 2004.

UK/England - Silver Oval

HAMPSHIRE - At 10 PM, the witness was outside feeding goat's on August 5, 2004, when he looked up and saw a long thin white object passing slowly overhead. This object was at an altitude of about 14 -15 thousand feet and heading in a northerly direction. The object did not make any noise. At one point the sun caught the side of the object, which made it shine but there where no light's on it. This object was not a bird, comet, balloon, helicopter, hot air balloon, flare, fire-work, or satellite. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director

Portugal - Oval

MADEIRA - On August 8, 2004, the witness noticed an aircraft and nearby was a really strange object at 12:43 PM. Although the commercial aircraft made noise the strange object did not make any noise. The strange oval had three white lights and a little red one too. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director

Indonesia to Japan - Morphing Glowing Orange Oval Object

JAKARTA-TOKYO - The witness reports, "Shortly after take-off I was looking at the on-board movie screen which was showing live footage of the clear night sky in front of the plane on August 7, 2004, at 12:30 AM." I could see stars and a small `moon` with kind of orange glow around it. I continued to look at it when to my astonishment this shape began to move across the screen in such a way that it was clearly not the moon or a star. For two minutes, I watched it as it moved across the screen in an S-shape and occasionally disappeared from view only to reappear in a different place. Because of this it could have been possible I was witnessing more than one UFO. I am a 28 year old male and I am writing this report because there is no rational explanation for what I saw. All other passengers appeared to be asleep when this happened. Thanks to Peter Davenport Director

Australia - UFO Triangle Formation

MELBOURNE - Phenomena Research Australia reports that on August 23, 2004, Two large formations of light were captured on video from a location near Pascoe Vale. The objects were in two groups of three lights and each group was in a triangle formation. The video was taken by Mark and Janine Blease of Melbourne and shown on Channel 7 TV.

A check of Melbourne Air Traffic Control, show no aircraft at that location or in formation at that time and no radar contact was reported. This morning on the Breakfast Show - Radio station 3 AW Melbourne, spoke to the couple who took the video and they said it was quite a surprise and very spectacular, offering no explanation. Other people called the radio station and some did come onto the "talk back" line to support the sighting.

Another Investigator Is Being Persecuted

David E. Twitchill writes, "Once again a seeker of the truth, involving the UFO/abduction phenomenon, is being persecuted for coming forward. Dr. Michael Salla, PhD of American University in Washington DC is being censured and threatened with possible dismissal from his position researcher-in-residence as a result of his scholarly investigations into the possibility of an alien presence in our world. Dr. Salla has been investigating the UFO phenomenon for years and has written a book entitled “Geopolitics: Political Implications of the Extraterrestrial Presence.”

Dr. Michael E. Salla, is a pioneer in the development of geopolitics, the scholarly study of the political implications of the extraterrestrial presence that is not acknowledged to the general public, elected officials or the mass media. His interest in geopolitics evolved out of his investigation of the sources of international conflict and its relationship with the undisclosed extraterrestrial presence. He cites evidence of as many as sixteen different extraterrestrial races currently interacting with humanity. He is the author of Geopolitics: Political Implications of the Extraterrestrial Presence (Dandelion Books, 2004).

Dr. Salla is an internationally recognized scholar in international politics, conflict resolution and US foreign policy, and is the author/editor of an additional four books including The Hero's Journey Toward a Second American Century (Greenwood Press, 2002. Dr. Salla has held academic appointments in the School of International Service, American University, Washington DC (1996-2001), and the Department of Political Science, Australian National University, Canberra, Australia (1994-96). He is currently a Researcher in Residence in the Center for Global Peace, American University (2001-2004). He has a PhD in Government from the University of Queensland, Australia.

Harvard University Psychiatrist, Dr. John Mack, faced similar persecution a few years ago when he published his book on alleged alien abduction cases. Dr. Mack was a skeptic who dared to look at the evidence and, as a direct result, became a believer but still enjoys his position at Harvard.

In 1999 the “COMETA Report” was published in France entitled, UFOs and Defense: What must we be prepared for? This ninety page report is the result of an in-depth study of UFOs, covering many aspects of the subject, especially questions of national defense. The study was carried out over several years by an independent group of former "auditors" at the Institute of Advanced Studies for National Defense (IHEDN) and by qualified experts from various fields. Before its public release, it had been sent to French President Jacques Chirac and to Prime Minister Lionel Jospin. They concluded that at least five percent of reported cases defied a prosaic explanation. After citing several of these cases and the method of their investigation, the committee concluded that the phenomenon is “real and not imaginary and that they were most likely of extraterrestrial origin.” .

Presidents Carter and Reagan have reported their own personal UFO sightings.

The Disclosure Project, a group of 500 high ranking military, government and corporate officials, are now coming forward with insider information to expose the truth embargo on the phenomenon by admitting to their role in covert operations involving UFOs and their occupants and seeking open Congressional hearings. Dr. Salla is man of impeccable credentials whose loss would be sorely felt by the University and the world. His employment may be terminated but his work in this field will not be abated nor stifled. The truth ultimately comes to light. The purpose of an institution of higher learning is not only to expound upon yesterday's assumptions but also to explore the possibilities of tomorrow's truths . . .regardless of their controversial nature.

If the reader agrees, I would urge you to write or email the principles bellow and “respectfully” urge them to reconsider their position in the matter of Dr. Salla. At his website,, Thanks to David E. Twichell

Russia - Two Airliners Crash Within Minutes

ITAR-Tass reports that about the same time a Tu-154 disappeared, and a Tu-134 airliner crashed in the Tula region, about 125 miles south of Moscow. Authorities believe the Tu-134 fell from an altitude of 32,800 feet and there were no survivors from either plane. A Sibir airlines Tu-154 jet, carrying 46 people, took off from Moscow's newly redeveloped Domodedovo airport at 9:35 p.m. Tuesday and the other plane, a Tu-134 carrying 43 people, left 40 minutes late. The Tu-134 was headed to the southern city of Volgograd, while the other plane was flying to the Black Sea resort city of Sochi, where President Vladimir Putin is vacationing. The planes disappeared from radar screens about 11:00 p.m., and by early Wednesday morning, the wreckage of both had been found. Terrorism is feared.
