UFOs, Nukes, and a Side of Mayo

UFOs, Nukes, and a Side of Mayo

I grew up in the small town of Galesburg, IL. I went to school, dueled with wooden swords, played war and spaceship, slid down the stairs inside sleeping bags, became a cub-scout, went backyard-camping, played with transformers, and generally hung-out and talked. It was 1986. Sleeping bags and wooden swords were a thing of the past. It was a long, hot summer in Galesburg and I was bored. I was about to get my first taste of urban exploration.

I explored the old elementary school, Hitchcock, which had been closed and abandoned for a few years. One of the boarded-up windows on the first floor had been pried open, affording me easy access to the building. Inside, I found all sorts of things that reminded us of my recent childhood. I found stories I had written. I found the old tape-players that had been used to teach english to the Vietnamese refugee kids in our school. I explored the darkened halls and staircases of this 1920's red-brick schoolhouse edifice with adrenaline-assisted enthusiasm. I had a strange sense of liberation, nostalgia, and excitement. I returned to the school a few times but this location was starting to lose its appeal, plus, the windows had been newly boarded-up-- it seemed my invitation had expired.

So, it was on to my next adventure: "Old Research". The northeast corner of Galesburg was home to a rather unusual institution: a WWII-era Army hospital which later was transformed into a mental research facility. "Research", as we called it, was abandoned in the early '80's, shortly after the Reagan administration cut-off the funds which kept it alive. One sunny day that summer, I rode my bike out to the place. It was dreamlike. The roads were perforated with grass growing between the cracks in the pavement. The old barracks stood with their doors wide open. There were stainless-steel carts, old medical equipment, and lots of old stinky beds inside the myriad single-storey brick buildings, which I enthusiastically explored. It was definitely spookier than Hitchcock. I remember getting "the chills" upon entering one particular building. There was a rumor that there was a secret missile silo out there, somewhere.

I was incredulous. "They probably thought that old water-tower was a missile silo", I thought, looking at the painted-white cylindrical concrete structure in the distance.


In early March of 1967, a phenomenal wave of UFO sightings occurred in the midwest of the United States. One peculiar thing about these sightings is that they were witnessed by police and military personell at nuclear missile bases. Minot. Echo base. An Ajax base in Indiana. Moline, Illinois. According to the testimony of military personell involved in these sightings, a number of minuteman missiles were temporarily deactivated coincidentally with these UFO encounters. With the gradual accumulation of government documents and statements by retrired military personell, this wave of sightings has found its way into the canon of modern UFOlogy. The descriptions of these UFO's were remarkably consistent: by day, a silvery, disk-shaped craft; by night, a pulsating red disk with a bluish-white halo.

There was one location from this 1967 wave of UFO sightings which stood out to me: Galesburg, Illinois. Knox County Sheriff's deputy Frank Courson witnessed a low-flying, red, saucer-shaped craft fly over his squad car while parked near the intersection of I-74 and Henderson road, just north of Galesburg. He did not officially report the sighting until two days later, when he and a Knoxville police officer sighted a similar object in the sky on the east side of Galesburg. News of the incident spread quickly through the community. The local newspaper ran articles about the sightings. A few local college students attempted some opportunistic hoaxes with kites and balloons. These stunts had the general effect of reducing the initial hysteria associated with the sightings. Still, Courson and others who had witnessed the flying saucer maintained that what they had seen was no kite or balloon. This incident found its way into project BLUEBOOK. "Blue book" was a semi-public inquiry into the UFO phenomenon undertaken by the U.S. Air Force. These pervasive aerial phenomena were generally dismissed as "swamp gas", planets, balloons, or something similarly prosaic. A fraction of the cases they investigated remained "unexplained". The Galesburg event was one of those unexplained cases.

Upon researching the wave of UFO's of early March, 1967, I was struck by an anomaly: Nearly all 0f the red saucer-shaped craft seen in the midwest were in the vicinity of nuclear missile sites. As far as I knew, there weren't any nukes around Galesburg... or were there?

I remembered the claims about a secret missile base out by "research". Was it possible that there was some kernel of truth in these rumors? Although it seemed to be a long shot, I decided to look into the idea. My starting point was Mayo General Hospital.

Riometer Data from HAARP Supports Triggered-Earthquake Hypothesis

The hypothesis that a devastating earthquake was triggered by artificial means is supported by data obtained from the HAARP website.

As detailed in a recent post, particle flux data recorded by a number of geosynchronous satellites suggests that something very unusual was happening in the earth's magnetosphere in the days leading up to the deadly earthquake in Kashmir on 8 October 2005. Riometer data obtained from the HAARP website supports the idea that HAARP was involved. The riometer data for the period 4 OCT 2005 - 10 OCT 2005 all display a curious "drop-out" of the signal. A riometer works by beaming EM radiation into the ionosphere and detecting the signal which is reflected back to the earth.

Riometer plots for several months prior to and following this episode were examined, and none of them displayed the anomalous "drop-out" signature seen here. Riometer data from other locations show no such anomaly. It is a fair conclusion that either;

(1) The riometer transmitting array at HAARP was turned off during these episodes, or,
(2) The ionosphere above Gakona was altered in such a way that none of the transmitted energy was returned to the receiver.

Regardless of the actual nature of these anomalies, the correlation of this data with the space-based observations supports the idea that the earthquake in Kashmir was artificially induced.

Evidence of Artificial Initiation of the Kashmir Earthquake on October 8, 2005

Evidence of Artificial Initiation of the Kashmir Earthquake on October 8, 2005

Satellite data supports the suggestion that a major earthquake was artificially induced.

A catastrophic earthquake struck the Kashmir region on the northern border of Pakistan and India at 03:50 UTC on 8 OCT 2005. The 7.6 magnitude quake claimed at least 70,000 lives. The epicenter was located in a region of great geopolitical importance, on the disputed border of two major nuclear powers. Data from an array of satellites which monitor the charged particle environment at geosynchronous altitude is available on-line from a computer system maintained by the Los Alamos National Laboratory. A glance at the data plots in the days leading up to the quake strongly suggests that the earthquake was triggered by unnatural means. The timing and nature of the charged particle events measured by the satellites displays a striking correlation with the timing of the earthquake.

Briefly, here is a thumbnail sketch of significant observations recorded by all 5 satellites in the plots:

03:50 UTC 5 OCT 2005: a "stripe" of missing data.
17:47 UTC 5 OCT 2005: sudden onset of energetic particle flux.
03:50 UTC 6 OCT 2005: sudden cessation of energetic particle flux.
03:50 UTC 6 OCT 2005: stripe of missing data.
03:50 UTC 7 OCT 2005: stripe of missing data.
03:50 UTC 8 OCT 2005: stripe of missing data.

These anomalies are readily visible on the plots obtained from,
(browse the summary plot database)
and have been mirrored at:

The anomalies occur against a quiet background. Note the surprising correlation of the cessation of the pulsating particle flux with one of the stripes of missing data. The missing data occurs at exactly 03:50 UTC every day for four days; up to and including the day of the earthquake. The earthquake occurred at 03:50 UTC on 8 OCT, the exact time of the last stripe of missing data in the plots. The sudden onset and equally sudden cessation of the anomalous particle flux observed simultaneously by all five satellites is clearly not a natural phenomenon. Even if the anomalies are explainable by some instrumental artifact, the fact that the earthquake occurred at precisely the same time as the daily "glitches" leading up to October 8 seems a remarkable coincidence.

How can electrons and protons in the magnetosphere have any relationship with earthquakes? The global electromagnetic weapons which have been developed and deployed by the U.S. and other entities are capable of generating powerful, focused energy release at any point on the globe. Generation of ELF (Extremely Low Frequency) waves and various ionospheric manipulations are possible. Weather-modification, missile defense, and earth-penetrating tomography are touted as preferred applications of technologies like HAARP by the military. Evidence of this capability is readily found in the U.S. military's own documents. Typing "magnetosphere earthquake" into google will yield a number of scientific articles relating earthquakes and charged particle precipitation. If one does a bit of research, what at first seems a tenuous link can rapidly coalesce into a highly plausible scenario.

A quick look at the geopolitical situation in the Kashmir region and its importance in world affairs suggests the possibility of a political motive. Notably, following the earthquake, NATO forces were inserted into the area to lead the recovery effort. NATO had never previously been used in this way.

While it is possible that the earthquake was an accidental side-effect of another operation, it strains credulity to imagine that no connection exists. Look at the data. Circumstantial? Yes.
Suspicious? VERY.
