UFO sightings

     Sanni (Marcellina Beckwith) reports what she saw recently: "I was up on Lost Lake on Friday, Sept. 26, and saw a plane making strange contrails that werenít like regular planes make. As I watched, a silver disk came from behind the mountain and then went in and out from the contrail, then vanished rapidly - the sky was clear with only a few clouds near the mountain. My friend was in the restroom and missed it."

     An asteroid discovered by Arizona astronomers in September passed within 52,000 miles of Earth - the closest documented approach of an asteroid that didnít collide with the atmosphere. Images of SQ222, as itís been dubbed, were captured by Lowell Observatory in Flagstaff and documented by Fountain Hills-based nonprofit Minor Planet Research. MPR was testing a computer and image system designed to allow students to look for asteroids and other space objects when a researcher spotted an object moving about twice the speed of the moon that passed less than a quarter of the distance to the moon, on Sept. 27. Had it struck the Earthís atmosphere, it likely would have simply burned up. (Source: Filerís Files #43)

Earth changes

     Mitch Battros (Earth Changes TV) warns that Mount Vesuvius poses imminent danger. The Italian government believes the volcano to be such an imminent threat that they are offering hundreds of families $35,000 each to move outside the eruption danger zone. Many geologists believe that it is only a matter of time before another major eruption will devastate populated areas around the volcano. A large eruption in 79A.D. buried the towns of Pompeii and Herculaneum. Vesuvius is part of a Super-Volcano named "Somma" that sits in a caldera formed about 34,000 years ago. This is similar to North Americaís Yellowstone Super-Volcano that is also acting up. An area of 31 square miles was uplifted, in places up to 5.9 feet, damaging homes. Vesuvius is a dangerous and deadly volcano that killed 3,500 people in 631. About 3,360 people died in the 79 A.D. eruption. For more information, check out www.earthchangestv.com/breaking/2003/october_2003/06vesuvius.htm.

     In the Philippines, 1,000 families may be evacuated, according to the Provincial Disaster Management Office of Legazpi City, while nearby disaster councils in Albay brace for an imminent eruption. Recently, the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (PHIVOLCS) confirmed a general increasing trend of volcanic activity and has now raised the Mayon assessment to Alert Level 2. Incandescence inside the summit crater was confirmed as a persistent and significant phenomenon. Sulfur dioxide emission rates on Oct. 9 rose to 2,386 tons per day. This alert condition signifies a volcano instability that may eventually lead to ash explosions or to magmatic eruption. The most recent eruption, in 1993, began unexpectedly with an explosion that killed 77 people and prompted the evacuation of 60,000 others. (Source: Filerís Files #43)

     Sun spot and solar activity is high as of press time. It is believed this may be related to the buildup of pressure at Yellowstone, Mount Rainier in Washington state, Three Sisters, Mayon and Mount Vesuvius. According to George Filer of MUFON, UFO activity is also generally high near expected volcanic and earthquake activity.
