Quite a few people spotted and shared this story, but frankly, I probably would have blogged about it anyway even if it was only one person who saw it and shared it. When I saw what it was about, it vaulted straight into the "finals" folder right way, no need to wait for my normal "Sunday email sort-and-blog" routine, for it immediately conjured all sorts of high octane speculations. But before we get to those, first, the story itself:
'Mystery rocket' that crashed into the Moon baffles NASA scientists
Note what is being claimed in the article:
NASA has discovered the crash site of a "mystery rocket body" that collided with the Moon's surface earlier this year. The impact left behind a widespread "double crater," meaning it wasn't the average rocket.
However, since its crash landing, none of Earth's space-exploring nations have claimed responsibility for the mysterious projectile, leaving NASA scientists baffled as to who was behind its launch. New images shared on June 24 by NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter show the unusual impact site.
Astronomers anticipated the crash after spotting the unidentified rocket on a collision course with the Moon late last year. It finally hit on March 4 near the Hertzsprung crater, a "complex" impact crater on the far side of the Moon.
Needless to say, we're all probably thinking more or less the same things, but just for the sake of setting down my two major high octane speculations for the record, we can divide the possibilities for the origin of the mysterious "moon rocket" (if rocket it actually was... note that the article is long on assertion and short on telemetry data) into two basic categories: terrestrial origin, and extra-terrestrial origin.
The "terrestrial origin" category can be further sub-divided into two basic possibilities: (a) a covert launch by one of the space-faring powers for whatever purpose, or (b) a covert launch by some other terrestrial organization, i.e., a corporation, paramilitary group, intelligence agency or "cartel", a criminal organization, &c. Obviously, if it was any of these two possibilities, we're faced with a large problem: how can its origin be unknown? Any launch of a rocket large enough to reach the moon from Earth would most likely be detected by at least the USSA or Russia, not to mention the other nations with major spy satellite capability such as France, Japan, Germany, or the UK. About the only place to conduct such a covert launch would be Antarctica, and this would require either a power with access and a permanent presence on that continent, and a covert launch facility, or a very powerful and limited circle of corporations with a presence on the continent, such as Lockheed-Martian (thank you for that one Catherine Austin Fitts).
Even after a launch, the ring of satellites around the earth would presumably have detected the rocket during its burn phase... and this brings us to our first problem: assuming the crashed craft was a rocket with a standard rocket signature, how does it get launched, and go undetected from the burn/boost phase? Answer: either they're lying and it was detected, or someone is able to launch rockets from the earth without being detected. One can imagine the national security analysists' nightmares the last scenario must project.
If it's a "someone" on this planet and not one of the major space faring powers, then who it it? Musk? Branson? Some sort of international fascist organization like SPECTRE....er... I mean, World Economic Form? And if the latter, and they can launch rockets without detection, what else are they capable of "without detection"?
Then there's possibility number two: an extra-terrestrial origin. I must admit that when I read the article, I also could not get Morris Jessup, Carlos Allende, and certain remarks of Richard C. Hoagland many years ago out of my mind. Jessup was, of course, the astronomer who also wrote the early 1950s Ufology classic, The Case for the UFO, a copy of which was bought, read and copiously marked with various colored pens by Carlos Allende, who sent his marked up copy to Jessup. Jessup read the strange notations, and promptly forwarded the marked up edition to the US Navy's intelligence, which in turn thought the annotated version of Jessup's book worth a special edition. Accordingly it contacted the Varo Publishing Company in Garland Texas, which printed the book with annotations in a short run, and distributed the book throughout the US military and intelligence community. In my own research for Secrets of the Unified Field, I note that Dr. Wernher von Braun was probably one of the recipients of the Varo edition on Jessup's book with Allende's notations.
Now why am I going "around Harvey's Barn" about the Varo edition? Because in his annotations, Allende refers to a very ancient cosmic war, in which "asteroids" were used by "the gods" to bombard planets in the solar system, an act which Allende calls "the great bombardment." The idea of using "mass drivers" for bombardments of mass destruction is not new. In fiction, there is Robert Heinlein's The Moon is a Harsh Mistress, and of course for Babylon Five fans like me, there's the Centauri bombardment of the Narn homeworld with mass drivers. In non-fiction, there have been studies since the 1960s of "rods of god," kinetic weapons launched from satellites to the earth's surface.
Years ago, Richard C. Hoagland pointed out, during one of his public speaking engagements wherein he discussed lunar anomalies, the phenomenon of "double craters" that dot the lunar surface, often in a regularly linear pattern, i.e., the phenomenon of double craters was artificially produced, as if the Moon had been targeted for some sort of bombardment.
And now, we have another double crater that was not there before, which NASA says was left by a "rocket" whose origins it does not know, but whose trajectory they have been tracking... of course, one can assume that the trajectory was no dramatically altered, and "run it backwards" to plot a presumed source of origin.
Why won't NASA say if they know?
Well, the final possibility is, of course, that an extra-terrestrial narrative is being deliberately suggested, not by explicit mention, but by suggestive "leading" and careful omission...
Or perhaps, indeed, Allende's gods are back, and sending a little reminder message of their capabilities...
See you on the flip side...
