Daily 2 Cents: 3 Humanoids Enter Bedroom Through Closed Doors -- Strange Lights on Ceres -- Safest Place to Hide From Zombies

3 Humanoids Enter Bedroom Through Closed Doors

Surf City, NJ - February 2015: We live on an outlet to Barnegat Bay about 2 blocks from the ocean and about a mile from a Coast Guard station. Helicopters, including black ones, are frequent sights. On three occasions this past month around the same time at night - between 1 & 2 am, a brilliant white orb was seen over the lagoon behind our home. We observed this from our third floor bedroom.

We had just gone to bed but were still awake reading. The light was so brilliant, turning more blue, and then thinned into a blue line, which may have been the edge of a craft. We went to the patio doors and what seemed to be a transparent craft simply vanished. This has happened a few times in recent weeks. A previous report I made mentioned a large, dark wedge shaped craft with 5 round white brilliant lights was hovering about 20 feet over the ocean's edge, silent and moving very slowly. It remained in place as long as we stayed to watch- we were there almost 20 minutes. My husband became uncomfortable, so we left. (I wanted to stay and see if they'd take me for a ride).

Since then, the orbs/lights have been a repeated occurrence. On one occasion, my husband observed three humanoid beings surrounded with brilliant blue light come into our room through closed doors. It was about 2 am, he was reading in bed, and I was asleep, and they began to come towards my side of the bed. My husband "heard" one of them say "He is a friend of ____(hard to understand) we must leave". Then they simply went back through the doors. He got up and followed them, but by the time he got to the living room they had vanished. I woke up as they left the room, but neither of us looked out the patio doors for a craft - we were pretty shook up. The beings have not returned, but the orbs/lights turning into craft have been seen by us a few times since that "visit". - MUFON CMS


Strange Lights on Ceres

Scientists are perplexed by a pair of strange lights on the surface of Ceres–a dwarf planet in the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter.

NASA’s Dawn spacecraft photographed Ceres on February 19 from a distance of approximately 29,000 miles. Although regions of higher-than-average reflectiveness have been seen on Ceres before, these new photos from Dawn show two bright spots within the same basin on the dwarf planet’s surface.

“The brightest spot continues to be too small to resolve with our camera, but despite its size it is brighter than anything else on Ceres. This is truly unexpected and still a mystery to us,” said Andreas Nathues, lead investigator for the framing camera team at the Max Planck Institute for Solar System Research in Germany, in a recent NASA press release.

Although scientists are puzzled by these mystery lights, they aren’t without possible explanations. As Mashable describes, “The most obvious contender is ice, although ice would reflect more than 40% of all light hitting it. The difference may be accounted for by the resolution limit of Dawn’s camera at this distance. Scientists have previously detected water vapor coming from the surface of the dwarf planet, making ice — a more likely option.”

But Chris Russell, principal investigator for the Dawn mission, believes, “This may be pointing to a volcano-like origin of the spots, but we will have to wait for better resolution before we can make such geologic interpretations.”

NASA’s Dawn spacecraft will enter orbit around Ceres on March 6, and will continue collecting better photos of the dwarf planet and its mysteries during the next 16 months. With better photos, scientists will hopefully be able to better determine if the strange bright spots on Ceres are signs of an extraterrestrial civilization, or if they indeed have a volcanic origin. - Strange Lights on Ceres


Owl terrorizes town in the Netherlands

Residents have been going out at night wearing protective headgear following a spate of owl attacks.

The town of Purmerend in the Netherlands made headlines this week after it was revealed that dozens of its residents had suffered head injuries over the last month as a result of attacks by an aggressive owl that has been living in the vicinity.

On Tuesday the European eagle owl attacked two runners, one of which required stitches for five head wounds. A home for the disabled has also been targeted by the bird with several workers and residents being attacked after going outside after dark.

"During the day there's no problem, but at night we now only venture outside armed with umbrellas, helmets and hats, anything really, to protect ourselves," said spokeswoman Liselotte de Bruijn.

The bird, which belongs to the largest owl species in the world, typically eats small birds and mammals, weighs up to 3kg and has a wingspan of up to 1.8m across.

It is believed that its strange behavior may either be the result of it being bred in captivity or due to abnormally heightened hormone levels brought on by the beginning of the mating season.

"We are advising people to stay away from the owl," said a local council spokesman. - Owl terrorizes town in the Netherlands


Cornell researchers find safest place to hide from zombies

If a zombie outbreak were to strike US shores, East Coasters should head west ASAP. That recommendation comes by way of Cornell University researchers, who have modeled the statistical mechanics of, yes, zombies and will present their findings at a meeting of the American Physical Society on March 5 in San Antonio.

The researchers used a number of techniques that are used when modeling real diseases, and the abstract ends with this dismal line: "We build up to a full scale simulation of an outbreak in the United States, and discover that for 'realistic' parameters, we are largely doomed." But Phys.Org relays a glimmer of hope by way of Alex Alemi, a grad student involved in the research: He says those who want to remain safe from the undead for as long as they can should head to the northern Rockies.

He explains that while books and movies typically show an outbreak touching all corners of the country immediately, "in our attempt to model zombies somewhat realistically, it doesn't seem like this is how it would actually go down." Yes, major cities could be toast within days, but less populated areas could be unaffected for weeks, and the northern Mountain Time Zone could be safe for months.

"Given the dynamics of the disease, once the zombies invade more sparsely populated areas, the whole outbreak slows down—there are fewer humans to bite, so you start creating zombies at a slower rate," says Alemi.

"I'd love to see a fictional account where most of New York City falls in a day, but upstate New York has a month or so to prepare." (Of course, some people want to be trapped in a room with a zombie.) -
