Aries, Taurus & Gemini - Cancer, Leo & Virgo

Comet Hale-Bopp

Archaeoastronomy

 

 

Archaeo-Astronomical Survey of Prehistoric Sites in South Wales

A study of solar, lunar and stellar alignments which may have been incorporated into prehistoric sites in the South Wales region of the United Kingdom. Sites include stone circles, stone rows, cairns, barrows, standing stones and ring enclosures. With an introduction to archaeoastronomy and detailed tables of results.

  

 

The Orientations of Neolithic Chambered Tombs in South Wales

Examines the possible relationship of long cairn orientations to the Sun and Moon, and between the monuments themselves.

  

 

Astronomical Alignments at a Bronze Age Round Barrow in Gwent

During excavation of a round barrow in 1940, two decorated stones were found to have been incorporated into a simple stone circle which was hidden beneath the earthen mound. What was the significance of the decorated stones? This article looks at a possible explanation.

  

 

A Possible Prehistoric Lunar Observation site at Loch Finlaggan, Islay, Scotland

Standing on top of a hillock next to the loch, might a prominent mountain range have been used in prehistoric times to study parts of the 18-year lunar cycle?

  

 

UFOs

 

The Trindade Island UFO Photos (1958)

This famous Brazilian case has long been considered amongst the strongest photographic evidence of extra-terrestrial visitation. But could there be an alternative explanation? This article investigates.

 

 

The Rouen, France UFO Photo (1954)

Allegedly taken by a French military pilot, this controversial photograph appears to show a flying disk with a 'turret-like' structure, and even surface markings. This article attempts to produce a plan, profile & section of the UFO.

 

 

The Hawaii UFO Photo (1989)

A photograph taken by a British tourist showed a peculiar, elongated object in the sky. The Kodak Corporation studied the photo and suggested it could be an airliner. This article investigates the theory.

 

 

 

UFO over the Nellis Test Range, Nevada (1994)

United States Air Force cameras filmed a peculiar 'blimp-like' UFO flying inside the top secret Nellis Test Range in Nevada. This three-part article is the most detailed study of the video footage yet undertaken.

 

Prologue

 

Part 1    -

Examines operations on the Nellis Range, describes the tracking camera displays and identifies the location of 'S-30', from where the footage was filmed.

Soundtrack   -

Read the complete transcript of the S-30 footage, and listen to audio clips.

Part 2   -

Studies the UFO's appearance and behavioural characteristics. It also attempts to reconstruct the UFO, in the form of a three-view diagram and a scale model.

Part 3   -

Examines the UFO's performance capabilities and discusses its possible function and origin.

Identified Flying Objects (IFOs)

Personal accounts of lights in the sky which at first seemed to defy explanation - until a solution was found.
