• A $20 silver coin commemorating the infamous October 4, 1967 Shag Harbour USO incident in Nova Scotia, Canada was launched by the Royal Canadian Mint on October 1st. Only 4000 coins were minted, and they sold out in two days. But organizers of this year’s Shag Harbour UFO Festival, October 4 – 6, made sure there were plenty of coins available for festival goers.

• This coin follows the 2018 release of a Royal Canadian Mint coin commemorating the equally infamous Falcon Lake UFO incident. Said Christa Bruce, product manager at the Royal Canadian Mint, “[A]fter the success of that coin we had many of our customers sending us emails …[asking] us to do the Shag Harbour incident.”

• The ‘Falcon Lake’ coin and the new ‘Shag Harbour’ coin are part of the Canadian Mint’s ‘Unexplained Phenomena series’. The coins have a ‘sci fi glow’ when illuminated with a blacklight flashlight.

• “We really wanted to pay homage to the people of Shag Harbour,” said Bruce. “The coin features fishermen on a fishing vessel staring in awe at a UFO plunging into the ocean.” Shag Harbour UFO eyewitness Laurie Wickens and UFO researcher Chris Styles, were instrumental in the development of the coin.

• Styles says that the Shag Harbour UFO incident “… is history not just ufology.” He has heard from graduate students who use the incident as a topic for university dissertations or doctorates in folklore and history.

• One of the highlights of this year’s Shag Harbour UFO festival was the release of documents related to the search in the days following the USO sighting. Styles said that it revealed the names of American Navy divers that he hadn’t seen before. Stiles wants to track down these divers to glean new information, if possible.

 

SHAG HARBOUR, N.S. — While a new collector’s coin featuring the Shag Harbour UFO incident released by the Royal Canadian Mint on Oct. 1 sold out in two days, organizers of this year’s Shag Harbour UFO Festival made sure there were plenty for festival goers to purchase.

The $20 silver coin was officially launched and celebrated on the opening night of this year’s Shag Harbour UFO Festival, which was held Oct. 4 to 6.

The coin is the second in the Unexplained Phenomena series, and features black light technology adding a sci-fi glow whn illuminated with a blacklight flashlight.

“This coin came about by popular demand,” said Christa Bruce, product manager at the Royal Canadian Mint.

“Over the course of the last year many have asked us why are we making another UFO coin and why did we choose the Shag Harbour UFO coin. The answer was quite simple,” said Bruce. “The Royal Canadian Mint issues coins that has shaped the Canadian experience and this includes coins of unexplained phenomena such as the Shag Harbour Incident. In 2018 we launched the first coin in the series based on the Falcon Lake incident and after the success of that coin we had many of our customers sending us emails and feedback and had actually asked us to do the Shag Harbour incident.”

What We Know About The Army Teaming Up With Rockstar Tom DeLonge’s UFO Research Company

Article by Joseph Trevithick             October 17, 2019             (thedrive.com)

• In a press release on October 17th, Tom Delonge’s ‘To the Stars Academy’ (or “TTSA”) announced a cooperative research deal with the US Army. They plan to combine their resources in researching metamaterials and other high technology fields that border on the realm of science fiction. It is called the ‘Cooperative Research and Development Agreement’ or “CRADA” and ultimately falls under the Army’s ‘Futures Command’. It will be handled through the ‘Ground Vehicle System Center’ in Warren, Michigan.

• The Army’s Deputy Product Manager for Science and Technology at the Army’s Ground Vehicle Systems Center, Dr. Joseph Cannon said, “Our partnership with TTSA serves as an exciting, non-traditional source for novel materials and transformational technologies to enhance our military ground system capabilities.” “[W]e look forward to this partnership and the potential technical innovations forthcoming.” More specifically, the Army is interested in cutting-edge developments in material science such as active camouflage, space-time metric engineering, quantum physics, and beamed energy propulsion.

• The press release mentions “novel materials” possessed by TTSA that could refer to certain ‘metamaterials’ – i.e.: engineered composites that have structural and conductive properties alien to this planet. In a 2018 SEC filing, TTSA reported paying EarthTech International, Inc. $25,000 on a “beamed energy propulsion launch system” and $35,000 for a “material analysis” program which included the “scientific evaluation of materials samples the company obtained through reliable reports of advanced aerospace vehicles of unknown origin.”

• In July 2019, TTSA announced that it had acquired metamaterials as part of its Acquisition and Data Analysis of Materials program, or ADAM. They claim that these metamaterials of unknown origin have been floating around the UFO community for years. The were originally given to paranormal radio host Art Bell, who gave them to Linda Moulton Howe, who passed them along to Tom DeLonge, who sold them to TTSA for $35,000. Earlier this month, TTSA official Luis Elizondo told Fox News’ Tucker Carlson that the organization was already conducting tests on these objects.

• It is unclear whether TTSA has actually developed any advanced technology from its research to date, but they do have the resources at their disposal to make the US Army take them seriously. Chief Operating Officer Steve Justice, who is coordinating the effort between TTSA, the Army, and EarthTech International, had previously worked at Lockheed Martin’s Skunk Works research facility. EarthTech’s founder and President is Hal Puthoff, Ph.D, who is also TTSA’s Vice President of Science & Technology. Puthoff worked for the CIA and the DIA on paranormal research including remote viewing, and has studied UFOs, extraterrestrials, and the Skinwalker Ranch.

• Former Skinwalker Ranch owner and billionaire, Robert Bigelow of Bigelow Aerospace has also been affiliated with TTSA since the days of working with Luis Elizondo under the Pentagon’s ‘Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program’ UFO study project and its’ predecessor, the DIA’s ‘Advanced Aerospace Weapon System Applications’ program. Bigelow is renowned for his interest in UFOs and paranormal phenomena. Under these programs, Bigelow hired Puthoff and Eric Davis, Ph.D. of EarthTech International to author research reports on advanced technology, including virtually all of the topics mentioned in the TTSA press release regarding CRADA. Mainstream scientists have deemed these advanced technologies as “junk science”.

• Under this ‘Cooperative Research and Development Agreement’ no money is exchanged between the Army and TTSA. And there will likely be no end product. The research will only yield studies and reports. So what does DeLonge and his curious group of decorated insiders from the military-industrial complex and the intelligence services expect to get from this partnership? TTSA’s COO Steve Justice said, “While the Army has specific military performance interests in the research, much of the work is expected to have dual-use application in support of TTSA’s path to commercialization and public benefit mission.” TTSA bills itself as a “revolutionary collaboration between academia, industry and pop culture to advance society’s understanding of scientific phenomena and its technological implications.” This collaboration certainly raises the profile of TTSA which is at the center of a History Channel series on UFOs and has recently announced a new round of stock offers worth up to $30 million. But the Academy’s Entertainment Division is also poised to exploit the potential commercial value of any technology breakthroughs.

 

The U.S. Army has confirmed that it has signed a cooperative research deal with former Blink 182 frontman Tom DeLonge’s To The Stars Academy of Arts & Science, more commonly known as TTSA. Far better known for its activities investigating reports and sightings of UFOs, which are increasingly referred to as unidentified aerial phenomena, or UAPs, this new agreement covers research into metamaterials and other high technology fields that border on the realm of science fiction.

On Oct. 17, 2019, TTSA announced the Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) with Army’s Combat Capabilities Development Command (CCDC), which is now part of that service’s Futures Command. The public affairs office at CCDC’s Ground Vehicle System Center (GVSC), situated at the Detroit Arsenal in Warren, Michigan, subsequently confirmed to The War Zone that this CRADA exists and that it will be responsible for executing it.

CRADAs are unlike typical contracts and “no money exchanging hands at all” between the Army and TTSA under this present agreement, a public affairs officer at the GVSC told The War Zone. There is also “no articulated deliverable” and if a product comes out of this process, it will most likely be a written study or another similar type of report.

The ostensible goal is for Army researchers to work directly with individuals from TTSA in exploring various high technology developments, sharing resources, and any results. “TTSA’s technology solutions, which leverage developments in material science, space-time metric engineering, quantum physics, beamed energy propulsion, and active camouflage, have the potential to enhance survivability and effectiveness of multiple Army systems,” TTSA’s own press release says.

TTSA bills itself as a “revolutionary collaboration between academia, industry and pop culture to advance society’s understanding of scientific phenomena and its technological implications.” It also has an Entertainment Division that publishes works of fiction about UFOs and the paranormal, serves as the holder of intellectual property rights related to DeLonge’s new band, Angels & Airwaves, and is responsible for merchandising associated with all of these enterprises. The actual origins of the organization are murky, to say the least.

“Our partnership with TTSA serves as an exciting, non-traditional source for novel materials and transformational technologies to enhance our military ground system capabilities,” Dr. Joseph Cannon, the Deputy Product Manager for Science and Technology in the Vehicle Protection Systems division of GVSC, said in a statement. “At the Army’s Ground Vehicle Systems Center, we look forward to this partnership and the potential technical innovations forthcoming.”

This reference to “novel materials” strongly suggests that at least part of the CRADA is concerned with metamaterials. This term refers to engineered composites that have properties that do not appear in nature. It is the structure of these new materials, more than their composition that gives them these attributes, including the ability to have unique impacts on electromagnetic waves.

Ronnie James Dio’s 1978 Close Encounter With a UFO in Connecticut

Article by Cherry Bomb                      October 14, 2019                      (metalinjection.net)

• In April 1978, rock singer Ronnie James Dio (pictured above, died 2010) had just moved to New Canaan, Connecticut with his wife Wendy. The guitarist in his band ‘Rainbow’, Ritchie Blackmore and Ritchie’s wife Amy Rothman had also moved to Connecticut along with the rest of his band. Late one night as Dio and Wendy were unpacking, Dio saw what he thought was a large moon shining brightly in the sky. But it kept getting bigger and closer.

• Their new house was in a forested area, and he could see a car driving down the hill toward this light. When the car got to the hovering light, the light went out. “It was as if someone had taken a black curtain and gone “woosh” and off it went,” says Dio. “I thought now I know that was the presence of a UFO and we were blown away. The next day in the newspaper 20-45 people saw the same thing and then heard a large explosion with light after it. So it wasn’t just me, and I know it was that. I mean, I am absolutely positive that it was that.” Dio didn’t merely believe in UFOs. He told Swedish journalist Mike Eriksson that he “wouldn’t even care” if the UFO landed on his roof and “took him away.” (see 2009 video of Dio discussing his UFO sighting below)

• Not to be outdone, a couple of months after Dio told of his UFO account in 2001, guitarist Ritchie Blackmore told Trouser Press, “We’re just bordering on being invaded by UFO’s, which I think certainly will come in the next five to 10 years. … They’re right here now, so it’s just about ready to happen, I think. They’re obviously watching us now.”

• Connecticut has a long history of UFO sightings. In 1639, James Everell and a few other men were rowing a boat up the Muddy River when a “great light” appeared in the sky, shifted in shape and maneuvered about the boat for several hours before suddenly disappearing. Everell and his companions found that they were a mile from where they first saw the light, but had no idea how they got there.

• There have been thousands of unexplained UFO sightings in and around New England. In 2018 there were 100 documented UFO sightings in Connecticut. As of September 2019 there have been 84 UFO sightings in Connecticut. Connecticut is considered one of the best places to perhaps catch a glimpse of a UFO.

 

This interstellar story about Ronnie James Dio’s account of seeing what he believed was a UFO from the window of his home in New Canaan, Connecticut back during his Rainbow days starts with a short history lesson.

      Ronnie James Dio and Wendy Dio

In 1639, James Everell, an individual described by Massachusetts Bay Colony governor John Winthrop as a “sober, discreet man” reported seeing a “great light” in the sky. Everell and a few other men were rowing a boat up the Muddy River when the object appeared, shifted in shape and maneuvered about the boat for several hours. When it disappeared, Everell and his perplexed pals were a mile from where they first saw the light, but had no idea how they got there. This event would mark the beginning of thousands of unexplained UFO sightings in and around New England, including Connecticut. In 2018 there were 100 documented UFO sightings in Dio’s one-time home state; this year Connecticut’s UFO sighting count is at 84, and it’s only fucking September. As it pertains to extraterrestrial life truth-seekers, Connecticut is considered one of the best places to perhaps catch a glimpse of a UFO. And now that I’ve gone full Carl Sagan on your asses, let’s get to Dio’s UFO sighting, which likely occurred sometime in 1978.

                  Ritchie Blackmore

Swedish journalist (and the founder of the Deep Purple Forever fan club in Sweden) Mike Eriksson met with Dio in Stockholm in April of 2001 where he was performing along with Alice Cooper and Ratt at the Johanneshvs Isstadion in support of his eighth studio record Magica. The incredible, in-depth interview with Dio (which has been republished several times since 2001), was filmed by photographer Michael Johansson who came along with Eriksson for his chat with the formidable vocalist. At the conclusion of the interview, Eriksson lobs the question at Dio inquiring if he is interested in the “UFO mystery,” to which Dio responded with unbridled enthusiasm. Now, RJD didn’t just believe in extraterrestrial life, he was into the idea of a UFO landing on the roof of the building where the interview was taking place saying he “wouldn’t even care” if they “took him away.” This leads Ericksson to ask Dio if he has actually seen a UFO himself with Dio quickly responding, “Yes I have.”
