News agencies are quick to report controversial news especially those tabloids that did not really check their facts enough to scare the world with the following news by examiner.com on December 8th, 2010
SETI Astrophysicist Craig Kasnov ( not to be confused with Craig Kasnoff ) has announced the approach to the Earth of 3 very large, very fast moving objects.
The length of the “flying saucers” is in the range of tens of kilometers. Landing, according to calculations of scientists, should be in mid-December 2012.
Date coincides with the end of the Mayan calendar.
There are a few suspicious key words bold for you to see.
- SETI Astrophysicist Craig Kasnov does not exist at least not in the SETI website search, even Wikipedia don’t have such person. Try “googling” him seems to be filled with wild news about the discovery of the 3 Large Objects heading earth instead of this mysterious Astrophysicist.
- Another clue is that SETI will be the first one to announce such news on their website or twitter or facebook but I don’t seems to find the same article anywhere other then examiner.com on the 8th of December 2010.
- According to the article estimation of “tens of kilometers” in length is not an accurate estimation because of the unknown VAST distances between Earth & that particular “object” in question…it’s very difficult to estimate how big the thing is let alone estimate that it will arrive on Earth on mid of 2012
According to the sky-map blog
I don’t know about SETI’s claim on space ships, but I can assure you that what you can find on DSS here is mostly telescopes, photographic plates and image processing defects.
DSS all sky survey is a digitized version of two half sky surveys that took place about 30 years ago. The original surveys were taken on photographic plates (there wasn’t digital photography back then, well, at least not in that massive form as we see it today).
About 10 years ago the plates had been scanned and digitized. The process probably introduced artifacts like scratches and dust in addition to telescope reflection and photo plates defect artifacts.
What I want to say is anything suspicious you find here on DSS survey must have explanation without involving little green creatures.
If you go to the Sky-Map.org and put in the coordinates you can find the 3 objects in question
The news article may be a hoax to paint the above as Aliens UFO & trying to convince us that it’s reaching us by mid of 2012 however I cannot say for certain that it’s not some “new” extremely large Asteroids heading our way or not as thousands of Near Earth Objects (NEO) are found by real astronomers frequently.
Until Sky-Map or Google Sky give us multiple “up to date” space photographs to compare with or real astronomers to see them with their telescope, to be able to determine the validity of the news article.
Do not think of suicides as it’s the most stupid things to do, just imagine all the asteroids do are just pass by Earth and does no harm at all to the people? We don’t even know exactly when they will reach us yet so don’t think too much. :D
There is also other websites debunking this news article too!
- Put yours in the comments below :D
Oh by the way, Singapore news website AsiaOne had published that article with slight amendment and again without verification from the source SETI
According to AsiaOne:
The report claims that the spaceships were detected by the HAARP search system, based in Alaska, which is designed to study the phenomenon of northern lights.
H.A.A.R.P. according to wikipedia main goal is basic science research of the uppermost portion of the atmosphere, known as the ionosphere.
Which means unless the 3 “Very large objects” are within the uppermost portion of the atmosphere of EARTH, H.A.A.R.P. are not designed to detect them!! THIS IS A BIG FLAG WAVING THAT IT’s A HOAX! LOL
Disclaimer : I myself is a witness of UFO 3 times in Singapore (2 times mass witnesses 1 time landing across the road) no doubt UFOs are real and I totally believe in them. Regards to hoaxes trying to claim that UFO are here to ATTACK us, that’s pure SPECULATION and should not use as reality as UFO had been visiting us since the beginning of human ability to record their existence. We should not focus on the FEAR of being attacked but the excitement to welcome back our fellow visitors with no intention of harm UNLESS they attack first.
Government of many countries had been simultaneously released their UFO files already confirming their existence in many way possible and in NO evidence that they are here to wipe us out hence we SHOULD NOT use the FEAR tactics by the hoaxers article and spread fear.
Everyone listen up, they are probably ALREADY here and among us and don’t you deny that possibility.
DO NOT SHOOT at aliens unless threaten by them, shooting them may cause a intergalactic war that we may not really wish for.
