Finally some good news. London’s Telegraph newspaper reported the winter solstice sunrise over Stonehenge yesterday resulted in local druids stating they felt “good omens for 2012,” with the New Year being “an excellent year,” as the sun shone on these ancient stones that are viewed as the top spot in the world for UFO sightings. In fact, the recently released British government UFO documents state that “Stonehenge is off the chart when it comes to reported UFO sightings over the past 5,000 years.” At the same time, ancient druids considered Stonehenge to be sacred ground were “ancient astronauts” would visit “over the centuries;” while a vortex around these famous stones produces a “concentrated energy field” that druids say “radiates from both the stones and the ground” producing a sort of mental energy and awareness that allows some druid members to “understand such things as if the New Year will be good or bad.” According to the “Stonehenge vortexes,” good things are in store for the planet and its people in 2012; as a counter to the Mayan Calendar predicting 2012 as “a time of apocalypse.”
Omens are good from Stonehenge: Rejoice!
It’s no secret that throughout the recorded history of man, Stonehenge and its surrounding monuments have attracted attention from scientists, antiquarians, astronomers and archaeologists; while the world’s top ufologists also concur with the view that “there’s no place on Earth that draws more flying saucers, or generated a blizzard of sparks about the origins of life on the planet than Stonehenge.”
For instance, early in 1977 The New York Times reported that astronomers researching the grouping of Stonehenge stones said they were in favor of scientific studies of UFOs; with the Times stating that “unidentified flying objects should be investigated further based on the Stonehenge findings.”
Meanwhile, The New York Times reported in 1977 – when any talk of UFOs was still pie in the sky, with anyone mentioning the word “aliens” as nuts – the Times reported stated that “a majority of the world’s top astronomical observers said in a survey that Stonehenge and its UFOs need further investigation.”
In turn, experts who’ve examined Stonehenge and “its magical stone formations” have stated in recently released once top-secret British government UFO documents that Stonehenge has the “highest concentrations of UFO sightings in the world;” while ufologists believe “the aliens are drawn in some way to the vortex that the Stonehenge rocks both create and radiate.”
Reports from Stonehenge on winter solstice
The shortest day of the year often falls on December 21, “but this year the druid and pagan community marked the first day of winter today because the modern calendar of 365 days a year - with an extra day every four years - does not correspond exactly to the solar year of 365.2422 days,” reported elegraph.co.uk; while quoting Rollo Maughfling, the arch druid of the standing stones in nearby Wiltshire -- after yesterday’s winter solstice ceremony – stating that as the sun was rising over the horizon at the end of the religious service, it bathed “more than 1,000 people who attended in pale light, meant good things for the next 12 months.”
Also, the London newspaper reported how “mild temperatures and sunshine at the pre-historic site were a marked contrast to last year's solstice, when the giant stones were surrounded by a thick blanket of snow and the winter morning mist obscured the actual sunrise.”
''Just as the ceremony came to an end the sun came over the horizon, it was excellent,'' Maughfling said. ''It has been a very jolly occasion. It's a good omen for the year ahead.''
During the winter solstice, the sun is closer to the horizon than at any other time in the year, meaning shorter days and longer nights, added the Independent report; while noting how the day after the winter solstice marks “the beginning of lengthening days, leading up to the summer solstice in June.”
Stonehenge rocks moved by ancient astronauts
It was on Dec. 19 that scientists in England said they’ve finally – after 5,000 years of speculation -- located the “exact source of Stonehenge stone that was used to create some of Stonehenge’s first stone circle that ufologists still believe is “some sort of ground control or command center for spacecraft from both within and outside our universe.”
According to London’s Independent newspaper, “researchers have been able to match fragments of stone from around the 5,000 year old monument with an outcrop of rock in south-west Wales. The work - carried out by geologists Robert Ixer of the University of Leicester and Richard Bevins of the National Museum of Wales - has identified the source as a site called Craig Rhos-y-Felin, near Pont Saeson in north Pembrokeshire. It is the first time that an exact source has been found for any of the stones thought to have been used to build Stonehenge. The discovery has re-invigorated a long running debate as to whether the smaller standing stones of Stonehenge were quarried and brought from Pembrokeshire by prehistoric humans or whether they were carried all or part of the way to Wiltshire by glaciers hundreds of thousands of years earlier.”
In turn, leading archaeologists tend to subscribe to the 'human transport' theory, while geomorphologists often favor the glacial one; while “the debate is solely about Stonehenge's smaller standing stones which are sometimes known collectively are sometimes known collectively as bluestones. The larger stones, or sarsens, are accepted to have been incorporated into the monument several centuries later.”
The Independent also reported that this “remarkable find has been reported in the journal Archaeology in Wales and opens up the possibility of finding archaeological evidence of quarrying activity at Craig Rhos-y-Felin which would indicate humans rather than glaciers were responsible for transporting the stone.”
Moreover, the outcrops where some of the stones come from are thought to have been associated with sacred springs and local Welsh stone circles that have also gotten the attention of the UFO community in England that has “always maintained that Stonehenge stones were moved by aliens.” Thus, “by bringing those particular rocks the 160 miles from Pembrokeshire to Wiltshire, the builders of Stonehenge may have thought they were obtaining more than just plain rock. Experts have suggested they may have regarded the stone as having supernatural powers.”
Stonehenge pits discovery points to ancient astronauts command center
Although they’ve been around for more than 5,000 years, another recent discovery of “two pits” at Stonehenge points to a possible “command center for ancient astronauts.”
The breaking news out of England last month pointed to “two uncovered pits to the east and west of Stonehenge that suggest the area around the 5,000-year-old circle of stones may have been a significant sacred site,” and possibly a “command center for ancient astronauts.”
For as long as there has been the written word in England, there’s been tales about the ancient standing stones at Stonehenge.
According to an overview about Stonehenge at the British Museum in London, “Stonehenge is a prehistoric monument located in the English county of Wiltshire; about eight miles north of the medieval town of Salisbury. It is considered to be one of the most famous sites in the world. The ancient site is composed of a circular setting of large standing stones set within earthworks. It is also the center of the most dense complex of Neolithic and Bronze Age monuments in England, and includes nearly 300 ‘burial mounds.’”
British archaeologists think this iconic stone monument was built between some 3,000 years before Christ (B.C.)
In turn, a 2008 research project by the British government point to “radiocarbon dating” that puts Stonehenge as “being erected somewhere between 2400-2200 B.C.
Stonehenge “pits” confirm ancient “alien command center”
While ufologists in England are calling the discovery of two “pit areas” – that were hidden at the Stonehenge site for centuries – as a possible “command center” for alien spacecraft, traditional scientists say they’re just happy about the discovery. And, since it took literally thousands of years to sort out what British scientists currently know about Stonehenge, they’re not in any real hurry to speculate at this time, say officials at the British Museum in London.
“Researchers say they've found two pits to the east and west of Stonehenge that may have played a role in an ancient midsummer ceremony. The discovery suggests that the 5,000-year-old circle of stones we see today may represent just a few of the pieces in a larger geographical, astronomical and cultural puzzle,” reported msnbc.com Nov. 29.
The previously undetected pits could provide clues for solving the puzzle.
"These exciting finds indicate that even though Stonehenge was ultimately the most important monument in the landscape, it may at times not have been the only, or most important ritual focus, and the area of Stonehenge may have become significant as a sacred site at a much earlier date," said Vince Gaffney, an archaeology professor at the University of Birmingham.”
Overall, experts say the pits, which measure about 16 feet (5 meters wide) and at least 3 feet (1 meter deep,"have been covered over for centuries and can't easily be spotted on the ground. But they showed up in a survey that was conducted using non-invasive mapping techniques such as ground-penetrating radar and magnetometry. The survey is part of the Stonehenge Hidden Landscape Project, which was initiated last year with backing from the University of Birmingham's IBM Visual and Spatial Technology Center and the Ludwig Boltzmann Institute for Archaeological Prospection and Virtual Archaeology in Vienna,” added the Nov. 29 msnbc.com report, that also noted how “the placement of the pits is intriguing: They were found on the eastern and western sides of the Cursus, a racetrack-style enclosure north of Stonehenge itself that spans 1.5 miles (2.5 kilometers) from east to west and is up to 100 yards (meters) wide. From the perspective of an observer standing at the Heel Stone, a massive upright stone just outside Stonehenge's main circle, the sun would rise just above the eastern pit on the day of the summer solstice, which is the longest day of the year. The same observer would see the sun set that evening in line with the western pit.”
Stonehenge: an ancient gathering place for aliens and others
Throughout the first and second century, ancient peoples would gather in what are now the recently discovered Stonehenge pits. This practice of a gathering of tribes at the Stonehenge pits later involved what was dubbed as “Neo-druids,” in the late 19th century.
“These modern Druids arrived at Stonehenge just as archaeologists were evicting the ancient Druids from the site,” states British Stonehenge historian Ronald Hutton.
In turn, Hutton notes in a history of Stonehenge at the British Museum how these “Neo-druidic groups” would make good use of the “megalithic monument for secret ceremonies tied to the “Ancient Order of Druids,” that many ufologists believe were hybrids from a “joining of the ancient ones and humans who lived in this part of England.”
During a now famous August 1905 meeting, in which the Ancient Order of Druids admitted 259 new members into their organization; with many of the members being Lords and other British Royals. While a history of this group points to the Druids and “hybrids” being ridiculed in the press, those who mocked them soon learned that these people and others dressed in white robes “were powerful,” state British newspaper reports from 1905.
Stonehenge: haunted by UFOs
Back in November of 2002, a report, now posted on stevequayle.com, and translated by Maria Gousseva – titled “Stonehenge: Haunted by UFOs – caught the attention of UFO watchers in England because it was part of the 8,500 British government’s once top secret UFO documents that were released to the public back in March of this year.
In turn, a link to this story about the ancient Stonehenge site being “haunted by UFOs,” pointed to a sort of “headquarters” or “ground control” operation carried out by “ancient astronauts” or aliens in and around the new Stonehenge “pits” that have been unearthed now at the end of November 2011.
Also, it's known that the majority of Englishmen "know the Salisbury Valley because of the ancient Stonehenge monument. However very few people know that the ruins are haunted by UFOs,” states this report on stevequayle.com. “In August 1957, a war game was held between the London garrison and the Royal Guards from Liverpool in the mentioned valley. According to the battle’s conditions, the defending side (the London garrison) was equipped with five Centurion tanks. The tanks performed a defensive role: they maneuvered and fired at the center of the area. When the tanks were getting ready for the combat mission, the crew of one of the tanks reported that they saw a large, silver, cigar-shaped object; they reported that the tank was ready to open fire. After the report, no more information could be obtained about the tank, and none of its traces could be found. The tank simply disappeared.”
Really strange things occur around Stonehenge
For instance, the reported noted how “one Englishman decided to fly a kite near Stonehenge. He stood on the bed of his pickup, and the kite flew up and up towards the sky. Suddenly, when the kite flew above the cromlech’s edges, 150-200 yards from the car park, a strange unknown source of energy hurt the man’s hands. The man lost his conscience and fell down from his car. His wounds healed only after six months.”
There is another even more fantastic phenomenon, the report adds. “Once, a group of people heard some strange sounds from the direction of the stones. These people immediately left, but the strange sound went up into the sky with a buzzing. Then, these people saw something resembling a huge wheel of fire, turning as it flew up into the sky. Later, after they returned home, they saw a female figure dressed in yellow clothes. The woman’s hair was long, and her coiffure resembled an ancient Egyptian one. This even gave them the impression that they witnessed a struggle between good and the evil.”
One Czech artist says that levitation of sounds was used when Stonehenge was built; the levitation was caused by the strengths of sound and thought.
Moreover, an ufologists named Tony Wedd discovered a very important element of new discoveries: “he discovered a connection between ancient field lines of the area and UFOs. The cromlech area resembles an UFO when seen from the air. Circular embankments and ditches are an exterior rim of the UFO, the Aubrey holes are the illuminators, and the internal stone ring is the UFO’s cabin. The central stone resembles a prominent cabin, and the so-called blue stones are humanoids.”
Stonehenge comes under the control of the Queen of England
The report goes on to state that “although Stonehenge is owned by civilians (it belongs to the Royal family), it is surrounded by closed military zones. Glastonbury’s peace and quiet is not disturbed yet. Over Waminster, UFOs frequently follow a flight path from the east to west, from Stonehenge to Glastonbury. In this place, people have observed UFO landings, giants, sounds of invisible pedestrians, and even exotic space perfume left after a UFO flew away. However, this phenomenon isn’t new. Even John Aubrey in his notes in 1670 mentioned a strange ghost seen not far from Sprinchester. When the ghost was asked whether it was a good or an evil spirit, no response followed, and the creature disappeared, leaving an unusual smell and melodious chime after itself.”
Also, the recently released British government UFO documents point to an UFO sighting from 1968, “when a man named Arthur Shuttlewood saw an UFO close to a circle of fire that emerged from Stonehenge. When Shuttlewood decided to approach the strange object, it shot straight up. Late one evening in November 1977, blazing fires were seen. They moved across the sky in a line, and they could hover and suddenly change direction. At that, the fires didn’t move fluently like planes, by in a very energetic and sudden manner.”
In turn, the British UFO documents point to this UFO sighting by Shuttlewood as “something aircraft do when approaching a flight line, with “Stonehenge serving as a command post for these ancient astronauts.”
