Celestial intervention and new discoveries
The New Planet..If you haven’t seen a picture of it yet, look it up on http://earthchangesmedia.com/images/comet17Pholmes.jpg. It is awesome! The Winter Solstice is on December 21, 2007 at 10:08 PM, PST. The next day Venus is square Neptune, the moon is square Saturn, Mercury is opposing Mars, which brings storms and strong winds, the moon is square Uranus, which brings lots of water, the Sun is conjunct Jupiter, possible large earthquakes, and the moon is trine Neptune. Basically we have four planets in an alignment including our Sun. The Sun, Mercury and Jupiter are opposing Mars, which is at its closest point to Earth and making an electrical alignment with the huge comet Holmes. The Sun, Jupiter, Mercury, and Pluto are also conjunct the Galactic center or really close to it. This activates a tremendous amount of energy.
NEW light has been shed on ancient burial customs and worship practices following excavations at a 2,000-year-old cemetery in Shakura.
MEXICO CITY - Archeologists have discovered the ruins of an 800-year-old Aztec pyramid in the heart of the Mexican capital that could show the ancient city is at least a century older than previously thought.
BEIJING - After 800 years at the bottom of the sea, a merchant ship loaded with porcelain and other rare antiques was raised to the surface Friday in a specially built basket, a state news agency reported. The Nanhai No. 1, which means "South China Sea No. 1," sank off the south China coast with some 60,000 to 80,000 items on board, Xinhua News Agency reported, citing Wu Jiancheng, head of the excavation project.
Historians have discovered a 25-ft high mound spread over 100 acres at Kondapur in Medak district which they presume to be a Buddhist stupa with myriad segments throwing light on the Buddhist link of the present Telangana region.
Coaxing answers from 1500-year-old clues hidden in soil clumps, BYU environmental scientists identified a marketplace in an ancient Maya city, calling into question archaeologists' widely held belief that people of the era relied on rulers to tax and re-distribute goods, rather than trading them with one another.
The Zohar - a compendium of enigmas that forms the basis of the Kabbalah. The Zohar describes the Arabian Nights-style adventures of a group of Galilean mystics in search of God. Beyond this, facts are largely unavailable or troublingly blurry. It was purportedly written in the second century, around 130-150, and purports to describe the teachings of Shim'on bar Yohai, a miracle-working rabbi of Galilee living under Roman rule after the destruction of the Second Temple.
The first question we must ask ourselves is "what exactly is the Galactic Alignment" or at least how may we best define it? In the broadest terms, the Galactic Alignment has been defined as the alignment of the December solstice Sun with the Galactic equator due to the precession of the equinoxes. Precession is caused by the earth wobbling very slowly on its axis shifting the position of the equinoxes and solstices one degree every 71.5 years. Because the Sun is one-half of a degree wide, it will take the December solstice Sun 36 years to precess through the Galactic equator.
The portraiture of Canterbury has quite a few descriptive sobriquets tagged on to it. Home to the Mother Church of the Anglican Faith, a cathedral with an unusually long choir, a chapel with old stained glass windows, with relics of an ancient monast ic order; a World Heritage Site. Geoffrey Chaucer composed verse and prose and gave a literary immortal sensibility to the Canterbury lands in his work Canterbury Tales. Since medieval times, Canterbury (in Kent, 56 miles east of London) has been Europe’s spiritual pilgrimage spot on the map. A kind of rare celestial hemisphere where believers thronged for their moments of veneration, invocation and benison.
Tomb engravings dating back 6,000 years are among the latest discoveries unearthed on the route of a controversial highway under construction in Ireland.
A 2,500-year-old tomb containing nearly four dozen victims of human sacrifice has been excavated in eastern China, yielding a treasure trove of precious artifacts and new insights into ritual customs during the era of Confucius, archaeologists say.
One of South Yorkshire's most significant archaeological finds ever has been unearthed during work to build a multi-million pound special school. Experts have discovered the remains of 35 ancient bodies - thought to be Vikings or Saxons - in a burial site which could date back as far as the fifth century.
An ancient iron ore mine discovered in Peru reveals civilizations in the Andes mined the valuable rock before the Inca Empire.
New evidence from excavations made by archaeologists at the ash altar of Zeus in Arcadia, Greece, has indicated that the place of worship was in use as early as 5,000 years ago, which is at least 1,000 years before the early Greeks began to worship the god Zeus.
The idea that there may be life on Mars has been around for centuries, but the theory got a dubious boost from recently released photos of the surface of Mars (taken by the NASA robot Spirit) apparently showing a human-like figure. Several Internet sites have glommed onto the image and suggested the figure could be alive.
Five thousand years ago, this sun-dappled stand of oaks was a place where Native Americans came to gather quartz and make tools. In the 1870s, an African American farmstead stood a few yards away. Now, archaeologists are working feverishly to learn all they can about those earlier chapters before this patch of Montgomery County assumes its next role in human history, part of the roadbed of the proposed intercounty connector.
The broken skeletons were scattered like random pottery shards, rediscovered where they had fallen centuries ago. Were these ancient people cut down in some long-forgotten battle? Did European-introduced diseases cause their demise? Were they casualties of some apocalyptic reckoning at this great walled citadel?
The New Year begins with a powerful planetary alignment that occurs both at the beginning and end of 2008. On January 2, Pluto forms a challenging opposition with Mars in the last degree of Sagittarius and Gemini.
Area 51-Fact or Fiction?
Area 51 is a military base, and a remote detachment of Edwards Air Force Base. It is located in the southern portion of Nevada in the western United States, 83 miles (133 km) north-northwest of downtown Las Vegas. Situated at its center, on the southern shore of Groom Lake, is a large secretive military airfield. The base's primary purpose is to support development and testing of experimental aircraft and weapons systems.
The base lies within the United States Air Force's vast Nevada Test and Training Range. Although the facilities at the range are managed by the 99th Air Base Wing at Nellis Air Force Base, the Groom facility appears to be run as an adjunct of the Air Force Flight Test Center (AFFTC) at Edwards Air Force Base in the Mojave Desert, around 186 miles (300 km) southwest of Groom, and as such the base is known as Air Force Flight Test Center (Detachment 3).
Though the name Area 51 is used in official CIA documentation, other names used for the facility include Dreamland, Paradise Ranch, Home Base, Watertown Strip, Groom Lake, and most recently Homey Airport. The area is part of the Nellis Military Operations Area, and the restricted airspace around the field is referred to as (R-4808N), known by the military pilots in the area as "The Box" or "the Container".
The intense secrecy surrounding the base, the very existence of which the U.S. government barely acknowledges, has made it the frequent subject of conspiracy theories and a central component to unidentified flying object (UFO) folklore.
