The Russian navy has declassified records of encounters with unidentified objects.
Navy intelligence veteran, Captain 1st rank Igor Barklay comments:
“Ocean UFOs often show up wherever our or NATO fleets concentrate. Near Bahamas, Bermudas, Puerto Rico. They are most often seen in the deepest part of the Atlantic Ocean, in the southern part of the Bermuda Triangle, and also in the Caribbean Sea.”

X-games gets started on Thursday, July 30 on ESPN.
Alien Jesus aren’t tremendous sports fans but X-games is something else.
Our own Godzmonkey takes us on a tour of the Anaheim Resort Area that quickly turns into a hunt for Burgess Meredith and Rod Serling. The Mouse is losing his grip on the reality veil and Godzmonkey gets his camera through to the other side.
Thanks to John Rozum for reminding us there are only 100 Days Until Halloween.

It’s a New Moon, which is also a total Solar Eclipse at 7:35 pm (EDT) at 29°27′ Cancer, the longest one until 2132.
Nasa’s Solar Eclipse Page
“On Wednesday, 2009 July 22, a total eclipse of the Sun is visible from within a narrow corridor that traverses half of Earth. The path of the Moon’s umbral shadow begins in India and crosses through Nepal, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Myanmar and China. After leaving mainland Asia, the path crosses Japan’s Ryukyu Islands and curves southeast through the Pacific Ocean where the maximum duration of totality reaches 6 min 39 s. A partial eclipse is seen within the much broader path of the Moon’s penumbral shadow, which includes most of eastern Asia, Indonesia, and the Pacific Ocean.”
Huge sky happenings for Astronomers and Astrologers.
Don’t know about Neil Armstrong, but I bet Buzz Aldrin would have been ok with this.
Rumor has it that all three Apollo 11 astronauts will make some sort of appearance with President Obama on Monday. Be interesting to see if Armstrong does any sort of speech, or leaves it to the others. Seems very quaint from our perspective 40 years on: a modern media plan would demand that Armstrong overexpose himself in perpetuity, or would have chosen a more media friendly astronaut (like Aldrin) to take the first steps on the moon instead.
