MUFON Reports Midwest Cylinders 6/28

The Midwest UFO `Cylinders’ Of June 28th – MUFON Reports

Hello Clockers and new visitors too. Today’s look at the latest MUFONreports had two of the last three (most recent) reports about high flying Cylinders over Indiana and Illinois yesterday; here’s the reports:

While smoking in the parking lot of my business, observed a large dull silver/gray cylinder flying at high altitude from E – W high in the sky. It was a nearly cloudless day, and I was with my co-owner, who also witnessed the craft. She went inside and grabbed binoculars – which I used to observe the craft in more detail. No wings, no tail, no contrail. A large cylinder, at least twice the size of a large jetliner, with rounded ends vs pointy nose and tail. Estimated altitude 30,000 ft. There was no sound, but from that altitude and distance, not surprising. We watched as the cylinder crossed the sky over Kokomo slightly to our North from East to West – a total of maybe two minutes – last seen heading over Burlington due West of Kokomo.http://mufoncms.com/cgi-bin/manage_sighting_reports.pl?mode=view_long_desc&id=29773&rnd=522401309349254

Poland’s Crooked Forest

Thursday, June 30th, 2011

June 28, 2011 — In a tiny corner of western Poland a forest of about 400 pine trees grow with a 90 degree bend at the base of their trunks – all bent northward. Surrounded by a larger forest of straight growing pine trees this collection of curved trees, or “Crooked Forest,” is a mystery.
Planted around 1930, the trees managed to grow for seven to 10 years before getting held down, in what is understood to have been human mechanical intervention. Though why exactly the original tree farmers wanted so many crooked trees is unknown.

Shallow Earthquakes in Japan Cause Injury

Very shallow moderate earthquake injures 9 people in Matsumoto (Japan)

Last update: June 30, 2011 at 9:40 am by By Armand Vervaeck and James Daniell 1 Comment

 

Earthquake summary : A seemingly harmless moderate earthquake has caused havoc in Matsumoto Japan (Nagano prefecture).  Due to the extremely shallow depth and the proximity of a town of 220,667 people, these kind of earthquakes are always a danger for modern cities.

Odd Visitors in Waters off Seattle

Thursday, June 30th, 2011

Odd visitors in local waters a deep mystery

The unusual visit last week of two long-beaked dolphins to waters outside Olympia was just the latest in a string of strange animal sightings in and around Pacific Northwest waters. Lots of creatures that at first glance might not seem to belong have found their way here in recent years.

OCEAN SUNFISH Found locally: 1997 off Cape Flattery; Natural habitat: Warm and temperate waters

There was the brown booby, the plunge-diving tropical seabird that inexplicably hopped aboard a crab boat this spring in Willapa Bay.

And fishermen have caught spear-snouted striped marlin off the Washington coast and a 6-foot leopard shark in Bellingham Bay. The shark, in particular, is hardly ever seen north of Coos Bay, Ore.

Even Bryde’s whales, which normally range from Chile to northern Mexico, have washed up dead on southern Puget Sound beaches. Twice. Just since early 2010.

The unusual visit last week of two long-beaked dolphins to waters outside Olympia was just the latest in a string of strange animal sightings in and around Pacific Northwest waters. Lots of creatures that at first glance might not seem to belong have found their way here in recent years.

The reasons are as diverse as the beings themselves. Green sea turtles that wind up stranded on Washington beaches often are presumed to have ridden warm-water currents up from California during El Niño years. Once they land in the cold Northwest, they grow too lethargic to make it home or swim at all.

Mt. Ranier Rock Slides

Huge rock avalanches rumble down Mount Rainier

Some of the biggest rock avalanches in years have been roaring off Mount Rainier the past several days, kicking up billowing clouds of dust and propelling rivers of muddy debris nearly two miles down the volcano’s flanks.

A large rock/snow slide is photographed on Mount Rainier, originating above the Nisqually Glacier and traveling nearly two miles.

Some of the biggest rock avalanches in years have been roaring off Mount Rainier the past several days, kicking up billowing clouds of dust and propelling rivers of muddy debris nearly two miles down the volcano’s flanks.

No one has been injured, but one group of climbers fled as dust descended on their tent after a rockfall Saturday afternoon.

“From my standpoint of looking at the mountain for 20 years, we’ve probably had rockfalls like this once every five or 10 years,” said Stefan Lofgren, lead climbing ranger for Mount Rainier National Park.

Since Friday, at least three major rockfalls and several smaller ones have sloughed off the rocky ridge called Nisqually Cleaver, at an elevation of about 12,800 feet. The one that let loose Saturday afternoon was the biggest.

Intend Your Day

Wednesday, June 29th, 2011

Each morning, as you lie in bed before getting up or after getting up, take a moment just to think of what would make this day true and rewarding for you.  Intend your day to bring you fulfillment.  Just a few examples: If you are going to be meeting with a friend, intend that that meeting will be joyous and fruitful for you.  If you are working on   some negotiation, intend that the outcome will be positive.  If it is a day of rest, intend that you will find in the freedom of the day new knowledge and certainty.

Intention: Positively directed intention creates for me joy and fulfillment.

 

Ah, the Elusive Solar Eclipse

Wednesday, June 29th, 2011

REMOTE SOLAR ECLIPSE: If the Moon covers the sun and no one is around to see it, did the eclipse actually happen? Philosophical riddles may be all we get on July 1st (0840 UT) when the Moon covers 9.7% of the solar disk. Receiving an actual picture of the partial eclipse is unlikely because of its very remote location:

“This Southern Hemisphere event is visible from a D-shaped region in the Antarctic Ocean south of Africa,” says eclipse expert Fred Espenak of the Goddard Space Flight Center. “Such a remote and isolated path means that it may very well turn out to be the solar eclipse that nobody sees.”
