Recently, the National Geographic Channel aired a show called Is It Real?, which investigates the possibility of ancient astronauts having visited earth hundreds and maybe even thousands of years ago.
The show offered some compelling evidence. The proof, or lack thereof, is to be found in old paintings and artifacts. Actually, it’s not the evidence that is in question, since it’s authentic, but rather what the evidence depicts. Are these really ancient UFO’s? Or, are these merely man-made gods which were drawn in respect, which we interpret today as extraterrestrials? We will let you decide.
The oldest so-called evidence for the ancient astronaut theory is a drawing in Val Camonica, Italy, estimated to be over 12,000 years old. It is carved on a rock near a cave and looks as if it depicts two astronauts holding tools.
Supposedly, more evidence exists. This here is a hieroglyphic in Egypt, painted on a 3,000 year old ceiling in Abydos, a New-Kingdom Temple. It is called Vimanas, meaning a mythological flying machine in Sanskrit. The image looks as if it depicts various, state of the art flying machines. One even looks like a modern helicopter. The others could be interpreted as a zeppelin, jumbo-jet, and even a flying vehicle.
This fresco, from 1350, known as “The Crucifixion”, depicts Jesus on the cross being observed by two hovering crafts. The painting is housed in the Visoki De?ani Monastery, in Kosovo.
And finally, a fresco painting from the fourteenth century called “Madonna and Child”, showing what clearly resembles a flying saucer in the background. Our zoomed in image reveals that the UFO-like object has portholes and other very sophisticated technological dynamics, including lights and a set of antennas. Does this painting reveal a connection between the Christian religion, Jesus Christ, and extraterrestrials?
We are skeptical, but we will admit that these fantastic pictures shake even the most adamant skeptic. Anyone who doubts the existence of UFO’s will give it at least a second, more serious thought. It should be kept in mind that every drawing in this article comes from a very technologically primitive time – compared to our 21st century. Yet, the images clearly portray objects which we consider, by even our 21st century standards, as extremely advanced and technologically superior. What exactly is going on? This is an answer none of us can give… yet.

These huge spherical UFO’s started appearing around January 18, 2010. They are on both the forward and rear images taken by NASA’s Stereo Spacecraft in space. They appear to be moving as they are in different positions on many photos. Remember these are huge possibly at least the size of Earth. Further, if they were planets or some type of huge asteroid comets, they would already have been pulled into the sun by the strong gravity the sun produces as in the case of the recent comet.
Notice also that they are reflecting the suns light just like a metal constructed ship would do.
My best guess is that they are huge planet sized spacecraft either observing the sun, or could it be that disclosure is now happening. Either way, I await NASA’s official explanation. Please help to make this viral so that we can get this out to the world. This could finally be the evidence that NASA can’t cover-up or ignore.
People asking for links so here’s a current and this one shows SIX distinct anomalies. Truly awesome, and kind of puts that hot pixel malfunction theory to rest.
Could the recent comets heading into the Sun and now these huge UFO’s be the signs spoken of in the bible? Luke Chapter 21 vs 5 – And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring.
OK heard back from Dr. Joseph B. Gurman
STEREO Project Scientist, and quite frankly this is the worst response NASA could have . Get ready for the conspiracy videos to go viral. Please be sure to read the whole response.
Response- What you’re seeing is the difference between “beacon mode” (near realtime, heavily compressed, binned [I believe 512 x 512 or smaller]) images and normal playback telemetry images (2048 x 2048 native mode, less heavily but still lossily compressed).
Normally, we get most of each day covered by the near realtime, beacon mode data through the help of a variety of ground stations around the world (including some operated by radio amateurs):
[link to stereo-ssc.nascom.nasa.gov] ,
so we have prompt information when space weather events have originated at the Sun. The full-resolution playback telemetry comes from dedicated periods of downlink (“station contacts”) through NASA’s Deep Space Network (DSN). A single playback can last hours, and covers data from a day or more stored on one of the two spacecrafts’ solid state recorders. Those data are then played back over the Internet to the mission operations center and the STEREO science center, and thence to the instrument teams’ home institutions, where they are processed over the course of a day or so. Thus, in normal operations, the full-resolution images will be ~ three days behind real time. Newer images will be the lower-res, more highly compressed beacon mode images, and older images will have been replaced by the full-res, playback data.
On January 18, at ~ 21:47 UT, the “central data recorder” at DSN, that stores all the playback data from all the missions DSN supports, failed. A backup CDR took over, but apparently started working on data from January 10, instead of just the four previous hours, as designed. (The last I heard, the DSN engineers don’t understand why, but it certainly sounds like a software issue.) For some reason, DSN is unable to reset a pointer and say, please start processing from this time instead of that time. So we, and all the other missions supported by DSN, are waiting for our playback data from January 18 and all following days. As soon as we get it, and the instrument teams have reformatted the telemetry into scientifically useful formats (that allow, for instance, making SECCHI EUVI data into images), we will post the images and other STEREO browse data in the normal places.
And no, I don’t know why DSN designed such an inflexible CDR system. I suspect they may modify it after this experience.
