Here is the UFO Headline News for Monday August 14th, 2017
Headline #1: Ophiuchus Is Part of The Zodiac, Too
Synopsis: Tonight, look for the faint constellation Ophiuchus the Serpent Bearer. It appears in the south to southwest sky on August and September evenings, above the bright ruddy star Antares, the brightest in the constellation Scorpius the Scorpion. Note the planet Saturn in the vicinity of Antares, somewhat brighter than Scorpius’ brightest star. This golden-colored planet shines in front of the constellation Ophiuchus at present and will continue to do for several more months.
Headline #2: Why The Total Solar Eclipse Arrives From The West
Synopsis: Every day, the same routine. The sun rises in the east. Breakfast. Off to work. Work. Home from work. Dinner. The sun sets in the west. Repeat. It’s a pattern familiar to everyone on Earth. For countless generations, we’ve relied on the regular cycles of the heavens to help demarcate our days. But a total solar eclipse, like the big one coming to the continental United States on Aug. 21, will break the routine. In addition to the moon completely covering the face of the sun — which, let’s admit, is already pretty spectacular — the event will move in an unfamiliar and possibly disquieting direction: from west to east.
Headline #3: SpaceX To Send Supercomputer Into Space
Synopsis: SpaceX Technologies, an aerospace firm founded and led by Tesla founder and CEO Elon Musk, is set to launch a supercomputer into space Monday as part of a resupply mission for NASA to the International Space Station (ISS). The computer was built by Hewlett Packard Enterprise Co. (HPE) and has been dubbed the “Spaceborne Computer.” The launch is part of a year-long experiment by NASA and Hewlett Packard to determine whether what is basically an off-the-shelf high-performance computer can survive the rigors of space for a full year. Coincidentally, a year is about the amount of time it would take a manned spacecraft to reach Mars.
Synopsis: NASA is set to wake up its New Horizons spacecraft next month following a five month hibernation, ahead of a journey deeper into one of the most mysterious regions of the Solar System. New Horizons, which captured incredible images of Pluto in July 2015, was powered down in April to conserve energy as it travelled through the Kuiper Belt, a vast region of icy debris which encircles the Sun and planets, also known as The Third Zone. On September 11, the spacecraft will awaken for its 16 month journey to MU69, an ancient object which is thought to be one of the early building blocks of the Solar System.
Synopsis: Intelligent life goes extinct shortly after becoming technologically advanced and that’s why we haven’t been able to connect with any alien species, one scientist is arguing. At the center of his assertion is the mediocrity principle, which is popular among astronomers and dictates that there is nothing special about our species, our planet or our solar system — that everything that went into the evolution of human life on Earth could have happened in other places as well. It thus also dictates that the state in which we find ourselves is completely typical and can be generally applied to the rest of the universe. University of Arkansas professor Daniel Whitmire is suggesting that if we go by this principle, it stands to reason that any technological species would ind themselves in a similar situation to humans on Earth: “that they are both the first such species to evolve on their planet and also that they are early in their potential technological evolution,” according to his paper in the International Journal of Astrobiology.
Headline #6: UFO Sighting in Clare, Michigan
Synopsis: August 1st, 2017–was watching the International Space Station pass over from west to east, when I noticed above me a circular object glowing a pale orange light with a dark center and a perfect cloud surrounding it, diffusing its appearance so I ran and got my brother to also witness it; it was silent and it hovered and took a path to the north till I could no longer see it–I have never seen anything like this in my lifetime; I live in a rural area in Michigan and always have a black sky.
Headline #7: UFO Sighting in White Pidgeon, Michigan
Synopsis: I was watching the meteor shower with my father and after about 45 minutes, I noticed a flash; at first, I thought it was a drone then I realized the height of the object, appearing to be the altitude of a satellite so I pointed it out to my dad and he was also perplexed–it kept flashing, moving slowly across the night sky, at some points it flashed brightly, like a strobe light; i got my mom and she also had no clue of what it was.
