Search for Aliens Is on Again, but Next Quest Is Finding Money

HAT CREEK, Calif. – Are we alone?

The telescopes in the Allen Array in Hat Creek, Calif., came back to life in December, scanning for signals in the constellation Cygnus. Only 42 of the planned 350 antennas have been built.

It’s hard to imagine what the next 50 to 100 years will bring !!  I know that in my 70 years I’ve seen so many changes but here is just a few:

  • Television black & white,  a 10″ screen, we thought it was amazing even watching the crazy test patterns

  • Gasoline prices – from 25 cents to $3++

  • Washing machines with no wringer and dryers, gosh no more hanging clothes outside in the winter – awesome

  • Typewriters to computers

  • Telephones – Party lines and dial to cell phones

  • Dishwashers – yeah, no more drying by hand

  • Rockets- launching a man into space – (Think of all the Sci-Fi movies prior to astronauts)

  • Shuttles – taking man to the moon

I know this is just a very small list of the changes I’ve seen in my lifetime (since 1941) but to list everything would be impossible.   Now think of everything prior to that.  So for me there’s no way to comprehend what the future will bring.   

I’m sure you’re wondering how in the world all of this ties in with an article about aliens, let’s just say for me it’s my way of realizing I believe in the saying “E.T. phone home” will become a reality…..flagranny2 

Spacecraft Sees Spectacular Solar Eclipse on Moon

There was a solar eclipse earlier this month — but it wasn’t visible anywhere on Earth.

Rather, a Japanese space probe in orbit around the moon got spectacular high-definition video of the sun being blocked — by the Earth, producing an otherworldly “diamond-ring” eclipse.

It may be only the third time such an eclipse has been viewed by terrestrials, human or otherwise.

            [An American lunar lander got a blurry snapshot of a solar eclipse in 1967, 
            and two years later Apollo 12 astronauts got treated to the same thing on
            their way back from the  moon.]

The Kaguya, or Selene, probe was traveling from the dark to the light side of the moon on Feb. 9.

The sun rose over the moon’s surface, as usual, but on Feb. 9 it was just a thin ring surrounding darkness.

(The Earth’s disk is a bit smaller than the sun’s when viewed from the moon; on Earth, the moon just about covers the sun.)

In the video, only a small semi-circle is visible at first as the sun rises over the horizon.

The circle quickly expands, but before it’s complete the sun suddenly breaks forth from the lower right corner of the circle, filling the screen with light.
