WorldNetDaily: Lights ‘not of this world’ mystery finally solved

WorldNetDaily: Lights ‘not of this world’
mystery finally solved

“Officials say the colorful illuminations seen Jan. 9 over western Arkansas came from special military flares that slowly parachuted to the ground as part of an Air Force training mission involving A-10 aircraft pilots at nearby Fort Chaffee, a base used for testing weaponry.”

But Jim Chadbourne of Waterford, Conn asks reasonably:

“Are you trying to tell us that a retired Air Force colonel doesn’t know the difference between flares and lights from a UFO? But the Air Force trusted him enough to fly F-16s, multi-million dollar jets?” When are the media going to stop listening to the government’s crap and report the truth?”

I believe almost always these sightings have something to do with the military. But flares? Well, at least they said something this time rather than the usual “We have nothing on record, Tinfoil Citizen.”

Zee News – Probe finds eerie calm in Jupiter’s atmosphere

Zee News – Probe finds eerie calm in Jupiter’s atmosphere

“No spacecraft has ever been there. We don’t know what happens there,’ said Spencer.
Apart from measuring the magnetotail, the Mission is expected to carry out detailed search for moons around Jupiter with its telephoto camera. The spacecraft will also get a nearly edge-on view of the planet’s tenuous ring system, which it will map in 3D. “

The New Horizon’s Probe has already found Jupiter to be much calmer than expected. On February 28th, the Probe will be at it’s closest to Jupiter and the pictures will start coming back in about two weeks.

In June, Jupiter’s gravity will accelerate New Horizons 9,000 miles per hour, on it’s way to Pluto. Arrival is expected in July 2015.

Athens NEWS: Lockheed Martin’s new Blimp

“The prototype is called the High Altitude Airship, or HAA. Lockheed Martin Maritime Systems & Sensors in Akron won the $40 million contract from the Missile Defense Agency to build HAA in 2003. It is essentially another blimp. A giant one. Seventeen times the size of the Goodyear dirigible. It’s designed to float 12 miles above the earth, far above planes and weather systems. It will be powered by solar energy, and will stay in a geocentric orbit for up to a year, undetectable by ground-based radar. You can’t see it from the ground. But it can see you.”

I hate blimps. I’m really going to hate a super-sized spying blimp.
