NASA Probe Snaps Photos of Mercury But Suffers Minor Glitch

A NASA spacecraft that completed its third and final flyby of the planet Mercury yesterday, snapping new pictures of the innermost planet, had a small data hiccup that has delayed release of the images, mission engineers said today.

The MESSENGER probe skimmed just 142 miles (228 km) above Mercury at its closest approach as it whipped around the planet during the flyby, the last of three designed to guide the spacecraft into orbit around the planet in 2011.

The spacecraft did snap several new images of the rocky planet on the inbound leg of its close approach.

"We do have some new science from the flyby," said MESSENGER project scientist Ralph McNutt of Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory.

MESSENGER also took snapshots during its close approach, but "we had a little bit of a hiccup in the data" that has delayed the release of those images, said Eric Finnegan, systems engineer for the mission at Johns Hopkins APL. "It's coming," he added.

The anomaly appears to have happened right around the spacecraft's close approach, so there may not be images from the outbound leg of the journey, McNutt said.

"We missed a little icing on the cake," McNutt told SPACE.com.

Despite the hiccup, the spacecraft is in good health, Finnegan told SPACE.com.

"What is important is that the spacecraft and the instruments are healthy," McNutt said.

The team is sifting through all the data and new images to see just how much they got before the glitch, McNutt added.

"We're all working through this," he said.

MESSENGER made its closest approach to Mercury at about 5:55 p.m. EDT (2155 GMT) when it sped by at about 12,000 mph (19,312 kph). The probe then flew behind Mercury, passing out of communications with Earth for about an hour before restoring contact.

Mercury's gravity was expected to slow MESSENGER by about 6,000 mph (9,656 kph) during the flyby and place it on track to enter orbit in March 2011.

The $446 million spacecraft flew by Mercury twice in 2008 to map the planet in unprecedented detail while using the rocky world's gravitational pull to refine its flight path through space.

The spacecraft is the first probe to visit Mercury since NASA's Mariner 10 mission in the mid-1970s.

When MESSENGER arrives in its final orbit around Mercury, it will begin a long-awaited observation phase that will complete its new maps of the planet. NASA launched MESSENGER - short for MErcury Surface, Space ENvironment, GEochemistry, and Ranging - in 2004. The probe swung past Earth once and Venus twice before beginning its three Mercury flybys.

Former Montreal, Quebec busker and clown, now Canadian Billionaire, Guy Laliberté, founder of Cirque du Soleil launches on his way to ISS...

Cirque founder launches into space
Last Updated: Wednesday, September 30, 2009 | 7:51 PM ET

Guy Laliberté, founder of Cirque du Soleil, became Canada's first space tourist early Wednesday when he blasted off for the International Space Station aboard a Russian Soyuz capsule.

The 50-year-old Canadian creator of the famed circus troupe paid $35 million US to accompany cosmonaut Maxim Surayev and astronaut Jeffrey Williams on the two-day journey to the space station.

The Soyuz capsule shed its rocket stages and entered orbit minutes after shooting up from the Baikonur launch facility.

The Soyuz spacecraft is scheduled to dock at the International Space Station on Oct. 2, where Laliberté, Surayev and Williams will be welcomed by Canadian astronaut Bob Thirsk, who is on a six-month visit, and five other astronauts.

Family and friends on the ground chanted "Guy! Guy!" and sang Rocket Man as it was announced the ship had reached orbit.

"I'm very happy for him. It's amazing," Laliberté's partner, former model Claudia Barilla, tearfully told The Associated Press while she still wore a yellow clown nose.

"I feel a lot more mesmerized than I ever thought I would be," Quebec singing star Garou said after the launch. "Having your friend rising up that fast and that impressively is beyond what I expected."

Laliberté gave the cabin's in-flight camera a double thumbs-up just minutes into the flight and told ground control he felt "super."

Footage from the capsule showed Surayev and Williams strapped in, operating controls and waving occasionally for the camera. Laliberté has a seat on the right-hand side of the cabin, next to a small porthole.

A mission control official communicating with the astronauts said they are all in excellent spirits.

Laliberté said before liftoff that he had packed a collection of clown noses to give to the astronauts on the space station.

"I promise I will plant as much as possible nose clowns in space," he said. "So it will be not only brilliant stars but colourful stars in the future."

Laliberté and his two fellow astronauts were cheered by supporters wearing red clown noses during pre-launch preparations.

As the trio climbed into their capsule on the launch pad, they sang the pop song Mammy Blue.

Laliberté, who is now the seventh private citizen to blast into space, hopes his 12-day stay aboard the station will help raise awareness of drinking-water problems around the world when he hosts the first multimedia event from the station on Oct. 9 to highlight that crisis.

The two-hour show, called "Moving Stars and Earth for Water," will feature former U.S. vice-president Al Gore, and musicians including rock band U2. It is to be carried live on the website onedrop.org.

'The first clown in space'
"I’m not a scientist, I’m not a doctor like the other participants. I’m not a professional. So I’m really the first clown in space,” he told CBC News earlier. “So it's important they understand that. But they also understand that the guy behind the nose of a clown is the chief of the Cirque du Soleil. That I have a mission in regard to humanitarian cause.”

Guy Laliberté jokes after putting on his space suit on Wednesday. (Shamil Zhumatov/Reuters)Earlier this month, Laliberté told reporters he will try to lighten things up on the orbiting station.

"I'm a person with a pretty high spirit, who's there to crack jokes and make jokes to those guys and while they're sleeping, you know, I'll be tickling them," Laliberté said.

Laliberté has been in quarantine for the last two weeks getting ready. To prepare for the trip, he worked out for several hours a day, losing more than 25 pounds. He has spent the last five months biking, studying and preparing for the weightlessness of space.

Shakira Epic Sync-Winks the 17 (UPDATES)

Well isn't that an interesting coincidence!

Just 36 hours after my Shakira SOS Article and Aceshowbiz.com is reporting that her record label, Epic Records, bumped the release date of Shakira - She Wolf from October 13,2009 (10.13) to November 17,2009 (11.17)!


Shakira's 'She Wolf' Album Release Pushed Back
Shakira's 'She Wolf' Album Release Pushed Back - September 21, 2009 04:17:06 GMT
Although it was originally scheduled to hit U.S. stores on October 13, the third English studio album from the Columbian singer will not come out until mid-November. --- Fans apparently have to wait longer to get a hold of Shakira's "She Wolf". The third English studio album, which was set to be released in U.S. stores on October 13, reportedly will not arrive until more than a month later. In the store section of record label Epic Records' site, the singer's latest effort is listed to be released on November 17.

Of the upcoming album, the 32-year-old has opened up to MTV earlier about what to expect. "It's a very electronic album," she stated. "Dance-oriented. Club-oriented. I want people to have fun with it. Forget about the troubles. Forget about the crisis. Forget everything for a minute - at least while they listen to the music."

For "She Wolf", the Columbian songstress teamed up with Pharrell Williams and Wyclef Jean. She incorporates elements of Colombian, Indian, Middle Eastern and African musical styles in this studio project. Lead single which title is also "She Wolf" has been released and topped U.S. Billboard Latin Songs. A music video for the track has also been premiered.

About the song, she previously told Rolling Stone, " 'She Wolf' came to me very mysteriously, I was in the studio in a bad mood that day, then I got inspired and went to a corner and I wrote the lyrics and the melody in 10 minutes. The image of the she wolf just came to my head, and when I least expected it I was howling and panting."



Apparently due to sliding chart numbers for the track "SHE WOLF", EPIC wants to try again with Shakira's - She Wolf cd track entitled "Did it Again"


Shakira in the Jimmy Kimmel Pontiac Garage (9.19.09)


Did Jimmy just say the CD release was next month? I guess on 9.19.09 nobody told him it was going to be 11.17 instead of 10.13, and Shakira didn't correct him...


Shakira in the Jimmy Kimmel Pontiac Garage (9.19.09) with Lyrics



"Now Strangeye, What's with that??", you ask...

Well, frankly I don't know, but you know I'll take a look and speculate ;)
Actually, I'll point out a few interesting coincidences and we can speculate together in the Post Comments...
So here goes...

According to the Wikipedia page on October 13:
Aside from being the famous Templar destruction day (1307), "October 13 is the 286th day of the year (287th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. There are 79 days remaining until the end of the year".
ref: almost all of my posts so far this Month (September 2009)

According to the Wikipedia page on November 17:
"November 17 is the 321st day of the year (322nd in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. There are 44 days remaining until the end of the year"
44 days - as we learned in my previous article on Shakira, she's a big Obama supporter.


On October 13, 2009 the SUN is to rise at 7:16 AM and set at 6:32 PM, and reach a max ALT of 43.1° at 12:54 PM (Washington, DC local time)

On November 17, 2009 the SUN is to rise at almost 7am and set at almost 17:00hrs and reach a max ALT of 32.0° at 11:52 AM (Washington, DC local time)

And another interesting note on November 17, aside from there being 44 days remaining in 2009 on that date...

From and including: Tuesday, November 17, 2009

To, but not including : Friday, December 21, 2012 (The famous MAYAN calendar date)

It is 1130 days from the start date to the end date, but not including the end date

Or 3 years, 1 month, 4 days excluding the end date

Alternative time units
1130 days can be converted to one of these units:
97,632,000 seconds
1,627,200 minutes
27,120 hours
161 weeks (rounded down)


View to the East at sunrise on 11.17.09 -


Venus, the Morning Star / Eosphoros, Ceres, Saturn and Virgo have already risen as the Sun is rising over the hor-i-zon in Libra.



View to the West at sunrise on 11.17.09 -

Aldebaran, the Archangel Michael, and Taurus are setting in the west at Sunrise. Galactic center / Milky Way on the horizon.



Shakira emphasizes the IRA (Eye of RA)
One hand to the R the other to the E (RE)
She's covering/obscuring the AK - the AhK.

With the "W" covered she's got the "FLO"...
Maybe now she'll give'em "SheOL"!

From the Wikipedia Page on the Parts of the Egyptian Soul:
"The Akh (3ḫ meaning '(magically) effective one)"

Shakira wore the same dress as Pink to the 2009 MTV VMAs




SIDE NOTEs:

UNICEF honors Shakira - by Javier Emilio Valencia
World famous Colombian singer Shakira received the ‘Child Right Award’ from UNICEF Germany on Monday, the organization's press office reported.

"Shakira has committed herself to the children and young people of the world’ Regine Stachelhaus, Executive Director of UNICEF Germany, said at the presentation of the award in Offenburg, Germany.

The ‘Child Rights Award’ recognizes the sustained commitment of stars who volunteer as UNICEF international ambassadors to help children and young people to get involved against violence, poverty, and AIDS, and advocate for their right to education.

Shakira has been a UNICEF ambassador since 2003 and has represented UNICEF worldwide. She is also the founder of projects that promote young children education, such as the Barefoot School in Colombia, the International Barefoot Foundation, and ALAS Foundation for Latin America.


On Monday 9.21.09 Shakira was awarded the ‘Child Right Award’. (CRA / ARC!)

Barefoot syncs with Jake's BIGFOOT...

The Hebrew word for foot is "regel".

As you can see from my "View to the East" image above, Ophiuchus (Serpent Bearer) rises with the Sun on 11.17.2009.



UPDATE:

Venus was CONJUNCT Regulus on 9.19.2009. (night of Shakira on Jimmy Kimmel)

November 16 will be a New Moon

November 17 and 18 will be the Leonids Meteor Shower. The Leonids is one of the better meteor showers to observe, producing an average of 40 meteors per hour at their peak. The shower itself has a cyclic peak year every 33 years where hundreds of meteors can be seen each hour. The last of these occurred in 2001. The shower peaks this year on November 17 & 18, but you can usually see some meteors from November 13 - 20. The moon will be totally out of the way this year (in New Moon phase), providing an exceptional viewing experience for the Leonids. Look for the shower radiating from the constellation Leo after midnight.
Regulus is the most well-known star in the Constellation Leo.
Regulus is Archangel Raphael - one of the Four Royal Stars of ancient Persian astronomy, the Four Guardians of Heaven. (see also: The Four Horseman)

UPDATE SIDE NOTE:
For more Raphael, Watch the trailer for Season 5 Episode 3 of Supernatural (airing tomorrow on "The CW")

Regulus enters the sign Virgo in 2012 AD. It entered the sign Leo in 156 BC.

Regulus is one of the four key stars in the heavens, also called archangel stars, assigning:

Tasoheter - Michael (Aldebaran) watcher of the East;

Satevis - Oriel/Uriel (Antares) Watcher of the West;

Hastorang - Gabriel (Fomalhaut) watcher of the South;

Venant - Raphael (Regulus) Watcher of the North.

The Lesser Banishing Ritual of the Pentagram evokes the Archangels, during which the practioner declares the Archangels Raphael, Gabriel, Michael and Uriel to be present, while visualizing them at the four cardinal points and tracing stars.

And an interesting take on Leo-Virgo-Regulus by the Order of the White Lion (O.W.L.).

LEO-Regulus, kinda ties it all back to the CAT syncs (REF: the Synch Whole and Black Dog Star)

SOS She's in Disguise - SOS She's in THE SKIES ! (UPDATE)

In keeping with my ASTRONOMICAL exploration of the 2009 MTV VMA awards...

Here's the inhumanly sexy She Wolf herself, Shakira!
(full name: Shakira Isabel Mebarak Ripoll)
She Wolf is both the title and title song of Shakira's new CD Release.
(Which coincidentally will be released in the U.S. on OCTOBER 13, 2009 (10.13)!
(10.12 in most of Europe - to coincide with Aleister Crowley's Birthday)

Shakira performed on January 18, 2009 at the Lincoln Memorial "We Are One" festivities in honor of the inauguration of President Barack Obama where She performed "Higher Ground" with Stevie Wonder and Usher. She also performed during the evening of January 20, 2009 at the Neighborhood Ball for the President's inauguration.






She Wolf in the skies (DISGUISE)



LUPUS, The SHE-WOLF, is in the Southern Skies. Dancing East to West along the HOR-I-ZON line.

The CAGE being the RIGHT ASCENSION/DEC lines that form grid-like (cage-like) celestial guide lines. Much like the lines of Latitude and Longitude on a map, only in the heavens.


If you didn't catch my other Aleister Crowley link at the beginning of this article go back and check it out because the Lupus page on Wikipedia tells us:
"It was not separated from Centaurus until Hipparchus of Bithynia named it Therion (meaning beast) in the 200s BC. "

Unfortunately for us, embedding of the new SHAKIRA - SHE WOLF video is disabled. So you'll have to
visit YOUTUBE directly to watch the official SHE WOLF video
(Though the vid is in the MAKING OF/Behind the Scenes part 3 below !)

You see her dancing through the pink/red (sunset) ruby cave sky (00:22), with twinkling crystals just like STARS...


You see her dancing with her half-there (half skin - half black material) horizon line dress... (and to digress looking f-ing gorgeous doing it!)


A mere 3 seconds into the video and we are told, symbolically by the Moon through the doorway, to go outside and look at the SKY.

So outside we go...

At 17:00 hrs local time looking south from Washington DC we see LUPUS / The WOLF dead center of the Southern sky view on the horizon:











The Bustier to form the constellation,
and the arms to make an EYE... where the Bustier becomes the pupil (and the symbolic Milky Way, Galactic Center)
(EYES WIDE OPEN)






and then on 10.13.2009 at 17:00 over Washington DC...
Sure enough the SHE WOLF has her EYE on her PREY... VIRGO (The Weeping Virgin) and Ceres between her "thighs"...




And in case you're curious the Full Moon for October 2009 is on the 4th...



(Anyone recognize the city above? Let me know in the comments.)

And just for laughs ;) ijustine...

SIDE NOTEs:
According to People Magazine:
"Beyoncé Knowles confessed that she was taught how to belly dance by Shakira."
The 25-year-old star, who teamed up with Shakira to record the track ‘Beautiful Liar’, had nothing but compliments for her teacher.



Beyoncé Knowles is married to Sean "Jay-Z / J-Hova" Carter:






Shakira ended her 2007 tour in Cologne, Germany.

Shakira owns an island in the Bahamas, "Bonds Cay", with Pink Floyd's Roger Waters, Alejandro Sanz, Miami devolper Arturo Rubinstein, and her fiance Antonio de la Rua. Her fiance, Antonio, is the son of the former Argentine President, Fernando de la Rua.

In 2008, Shakira was the world's fourth highest grossing female singer.


UPDATE: Anonymous (9.21.09@12:42pm): Tells us the city in the video background may be San Francisco, CA. That would make the double-spired church the Saints Peter and Paul Church (located at 666 Filbert Street, San Francisco, CA) and the scene background (probably green-screened on a studio set) filmed from a location likely on Mason St near Columbus Ave.

9-9-09 - AeroMexico Plane Hijacked (...more updates and Beatles)...

UPDATE (CNN video added)


ORIGINAL:
Three Hijackers believed to be Bolivian citizens have hijacked an AeroMexico flight from Cancun to Mexico City. The hijackers are demanding to speak with Mexican President Felipe Calderon.

Breitbart.com via AP is reporting:
Hijackers hold Mexican plane on runway
Sep 9 03:26 PM US/Eastern
MEXICO CITY (AP) - Hijackers are holding a flight from Cancun to Mexico City.
Mexico Communications Secretary Juan Molinar says the plane is sitting on the runway at the Mexico City international airport.

Mexican news media report the hijackers are three Bolivian citizens who are demanding to talk with Mexican President Felipe Calderon.

Mexican network TV Azteca reported that the flight Wednesday was carrying 104 passengers.



And now for the STRANGEYE view...




We start by noting the AeroMexico logo.
It is a Hawk (Horus) with a Man's face.
We also, due to recent events have our attention drawn to the A and M (AM) of AeroMexico.

Second we recall the recent death of DJ "AM"

Third we note the recent downing of the AM Radio towers.

And for the kicker, we note that A = 1 and M = 13
Sure enough Breitbart / AP confirms the checksum by telling us there are 104 passengers on the hijacked flight.

The "AM" value also gives us the much noted 113 (as well as 5 \ 14 \ 6+8 \ 7+7).

To no surprise at all we realize that September 9, 2009, besides being 9-9-09 is also the 252 day (2+5+2 = 9) of 2009.
365 - 252 = 113

We also note that they do not use the full name of the Mexican President only his first and Last, Felipe Calderon. F = 6, C = 3 and 6 + 3 = *9* (on 9-9-09!) (and Mexican President, M = 13, P = 16... 16+13=29, or in occult math "TWO 9's")

To no surprise at all we realize that Mexico Communications Secretary, Juan Molinar, has the initials JM. J = 10, M = 13 thus the 113 is echoed again for another checksum.



SIDE NOTEs:
- 113 is the 30th Prime number
- 30 degrees separate the signs of the Zodiac.
- Cancun is in the Mexican state of Quintana Roo, whose coat of arms has the rising sun. The sun rises in the "AM".
- Mexican President Felipe Calderon's full name is "Felipe de Jesús Calderón Hinojosa" ... the article left out Jesús and Hinojosa (J = 10, H = 8, 1+0+8 = 9)
- 1 + 13 = 14 which is 2 x 7 or 27 (this is occult math). The number 27 is of course (2+7=9) or 3 x 9 or 9 + 9 + 9 !


Regular STRANGEYE readers will spot other (non) coincidences

It's ALL under control...




UPDATE I:

And now you're on your own to spot the same in the story below...


CBS is reporting (via AP)
AeroMexico Plane Hijacked in Mexico City

(CBS/AP) Hijackers seized control of a commercial airplane in Mexico Wednesday and held it on the tarmac at Mexico City International Airport for more than an hour.

All of the airplane's passengers and crew were freed, unharmed, and at least five people were taken into custody at the end of the standoff.

AeroMexico flight 576 Cancun landed at around 1:40 p.m. local time (2:40 p.m. EDT). The Boeing 737 was carrying 104 passengers, according to Mexican network TV Azteca.

The hijackers - initially identified on Mexican television as three Bolivian citizens - had said they want to negotiate directly with Mexican President Felipe Calderon or they will blow up the plane, reports CBS News producer Maria Mercader. It was not immediately known what the hijackers were demanding.

The hijackers themselves apparently freed the plane's passengers after about 45 minutes on the ground, but continued to hold the pilots and crew.

Shortly before 3 p.m. local time, Mexican federal police stormed the plane. There were no explosions and there did not appear to be any shots fired in the incursion.

At least five men were seen being led away in handcuffs following the raid. The pilots and crew appeared to walk away unharmed.

Freed passenger Adriana Romero said that the hijackers were well-dressed and appeared like any other passengers on board. They took control of the airplane after standing up to get their luggage out of overhead bins.

The pilots spoke to passengers over the PA system and asked for them to remain calm and remain in their seats.

STORY UPDATE 9/10/09:

MSNBC/AP tells us about event:
Mexico: Religious fanatic briefly hijacked jet
Mexican police: Bolivian said 9/9/09 was satanic 666 upside down
The Associated Press
updated 11:12 p.m. CT, Wed., Sept . 9, 2009
MEXICO CITY - A Bolivian religious fanatic briefly hijacked a jetliner from the beach resort of Cancun as it landed in Mexico City on Wednesday, police said. All passengers and the crew were released unharmed.

The Bible-carrying hijacker used a juice can he said was a bomb to hold the 103 passengers and crew on the tarmac for more than an hour.

Masked police stormed the aircraft with guns drawn and escorted several handcuffed men away without firing a shot. Police later said there was only one hijacker, and the other men aboard were detained because the suspect had told a flight attendant he had three accomplices. The others were quickly released.

Jose Flores, 44, later told police his three companions were "the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost."

Flores hijacked Aeromexico Flight 576 after a divine revelation, according to Public Safety Secretary Genaro Garcia Luna. Flores said Wednesday's date — 9-9-09 — is the satanic number 666 turned upside down.

Flores, speaking to reporters after he was detained, said he took control of the aircraft with "a juice can ... with some little lights I attached."

"Christ is coming soon," he added, smiling.

As the plane was landing, Flores stood up and showed his contraption to a flight attendant, Garcia Luna said.

He ordered the pilot to circle over Mexico City seven times and asked to speak with Mexican President Felipe Calderon, saying he wanted to warn him of an impending earthquake, Garcia Luna said.

His wife, Elizabeth Melgar, told W Radio that Flores "always told me that he was looking for a way to attract the attention of the media ... he always told me that he was waiting for a signal from God to do something.

"Don't worry if they put me in jail," Melgar quoted him as saying. "(It will be) glory to God."

Garcia Luna said Flores is a drug addict who was convicted of armed robbery in Bolivia, and has lived in Mexico for 17 years. Flores described himself as a pastor in southern Oaxaca state who had gone to Cancun to preach.

He is also a Christian music singer who in videos posted on YouTube sings of leaving drugs and finding God. "I was in jail, I was a despicable drug addict, but Christ freed me a few years ago," he sings along with recorded music at a crowded stadium.


In other videos, Flores, who goes by the stage name Josmar, is seen playing with nunchakus or shooting at a coin he tosses in the air.

U.S., French and Mexican citizens were among the passengers, according to a U.S. official in Washington who was briefed on the situation. The official was not authorized to discuss the case and spoke on condition of anonymity.

A U.S. Embassy spokesman said at least 14 U.S. citizens were on the plane and were being interviewed by Mexican authorities at the airport.

Aeromexico said in a statement that neither passengers or crew suffered any harm.

Passenger Pamela Cheatham, 48, an insurance industry employee from Colorado Springs, Colorado, is cautious about flying on "fateful" dates, but said she didn't make the connection with "9-09-09" — the number that obsessed the hijacker — until after the fact.

"When I was doing my flight I was like, 'I don't want to fly on 9/11, but then it didn't hit me until this was all over," Cheatham said. "I should have evaluated that a little better."

Cheatham said passengers "had no idea anything was wrong until we landed," when the pilot announced that they would be delayed on the tarmac for a security check.

But "when I saw the police with big guns and the SWAT teams on the side of the bus, then my anxiety started to happen," she added. "When they said women and children off, then I knew something had to be on the plane."

The pilot continued to walk back from the cabin to talk with the hijacker, who apparently remained in his seat during the flight. Cheatham said of the pilot — who acted as a mediator and whose performance was praised by federal police — "I could see the anxiety on his face; he didn't panic but I could tell he was anxious."

Randy White, 54, a former law enforcement officer from Houston, Texas, said that "it wasn't a big struggle" when the hijacker was taken into custody, but the toughest moment for him and his wife, Susan, 52, was when women passengers were told to leave while the men stayed aboard.

"I heard they were keeping them hostage," said Susan White.

Susan said her children told her by phone there were reports on the Internet that there was a bomb on the plane.

"I didn't know what was going to happen and I didn't want to be separated, so I said I love you and gave him a kiss," she said.

Passengers said the hijacker — who was seated toward the rear of the plane — did not draw their attention during the flight. Randy White said he had a very serious demeanor, unlike the wildly smiling, disjointed attitude the suspect displayed after he was caught.

Once Mexican officials negotiated the release of women and children through the pilot, they sent in the police. The plane was isolated at the end of a runway in an area designed for emergencies and the airport remained open.


Mary Pereyra de Flores, the suspect's mother, told PAT television in his native Bolivia that "I knew that my son had this revelation a year ago, I knew he was going to try to talk to the president of Mexico."

She also said she knew that 9-9-09 date had significance. "There was a revelation for that date ... today there is a promise for the people of God and retribution for everything that the enemy has stolen."

Associated Content has the following article about the Beatles and 9.9.09
Number Nine, Number Nine, Number Nine

For some, 9/9/09, is a special date because it is the last time we will see single-digit repeating numbers in a date until January 1, 2101. According to Livescience.com, 9/9/09 is significant to numerologists because the number 9 is, to coin a term, "yingyangy." In other words, it is
9/9/09: For Beatles Fans, a Day to Treasure associated with noble qualities such as forgiveness, compassion and success and ignoble qualities such as arrogance and self-righteousness. Some are excited about 09/09/09 because Tim Burton's movie "9" (which reportedly has nine heroes) opens today.

But if you are a die hard Beatles fan, none of the aforementioned reasons for being jazzed about 9/9/09 (or, if you prefer, 09/09/09 or September 9, 2009 or 9/9/9) is more significant and exciting than the fact that 09/09/09 marks the day that the entire digitally remastered Beatles catalog is being released by Apple, and that "The Beatles: Rock Band" video game is being launched.

It's Beatlemania all over again! And, with the release of "The Beatles: Rock Band," a whole new generation will be introduced to the magic of the Beatles, a legendary rock band in the truest sense of the word. They will be introduced to the crackerjack songwriting and performance skills of the Fab Four - and that is a beautiful thing.

To describe the Beatles as "magic" is not hyperbole; no other band compares to the Beatles in terms of their ability to crank out masterpiece after masterpiece. And every single rock band that followed the Beatles owes them a huge debt of gratitude for bringing rock music to a whole new level of acceptability and artistic expression.

It was truly a magic moment when John Lennon met Paul McCartney in Liverpool back in 1957. What are the odds that these two musical geniuses would both be born in Liverpool and end up meeting? To a Beatles fan, it is nothing less than divine intervention. And I can assure you that with the release of "The Beatles: Rock Band," many members of the latest generation of pop and rock music lovers will come to the same conclusion.

The Beatles' music still holds up, and it will continue to hold up until the end of time.

09/09/09 is a special day indeed.

SaTURn and the Weeping Virgin - 10.13

A theoretical and speculative exploration of one of Freemasonry's more peculiar symbols...


(fig. A)


(fig. B)

I believe, and it is just my opinion and interpretation, that this symbol may be referencing or marking this particular moment in time.

We see in both depictions of the symbol above that Saturn (STUR / Kronos / Chronos), the angel-winged figure tucked in close behind the female, has his scythe in the down position... non-threatening.

How Saturn appeared from Earth on September 4, 2009:


This could be said to be the time at which the rings of Saturn disappear as Earth passess through their plane, as it did on September 4, 2009.

Another interesting note is that at this very moment in time...

The Columns were broken - the towers came down (WAEB and KRKO towers of September 4, 2009).

It occured during the time of the Sun in Virgo - Which occurs from August 23 to September 22 in Western tropical astrology and September 13 to October 13 in Sidereal and Hindu (Vedic) astrology.


SaTUR-Day September 19, 2009 is the Jewish New Year's Day in the Hebrew Calendar.

It will be the 1st day of Tishri, 5770 and Rosh HaShanah

Rosh HaShanah, in 5770 / 2009 is celebrated from sundown on Friday September 18 and ends at nightfall on Sunday September 20.

About 10 days later, from Sunset September 27, 2009 to nightfall on September 28, 2009, it will be YOM KIPPUR - the Jewish Day of Atonement

'Massive' ancient wall uncovered in Jerusalem"

'Massive' ancient wall uncovered in Jerusalem
Story Highlights
Made of boulders weighing 4 to 5 tons, the 3,700-year-old wall is 26 feet high
Archaeologist: "I don't know how to do it today without mechanical equipment"
Wall is believed to have been built by Canaanites
Fri September 4, 2009

JERUSALEM (CNN) -- An archaeological dig in Jerusalem has turned up a 3,700-year-old wall that is the largest and oldest of its kind found in the region, experts say.

The wall is built of enormous boulders, confounding archaeologists as to how ancient peoples built it.

Standing 8 meters (26 feet) high, the wall of huge cut stones is a marvel to archaeologists.

"To build straight walls up 8 meters ... I don't know how to do it today without mechanical equipment," said the excavation's director, Ronny Reich. "I don't think that any engineer today without electrical power [could] do it."

Archaeologist Eli Shukron of the Israel Antiquities Authority added, "You see all the big boulders -- all the boulders are 4 to 5 tons."

The discovered section is 24 meters (79 feet) long. "However, it is thought the fortification is much longer because it continues west beyond the part that was exposed," the Israel Antiquities Authority said in a news release.

Watch report on the discovery of the ancient wall




SUN-Day September 13, 2009:
Is day of the little known Christian Feast of the Cross
The date used for the feast marks the dedication of the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in 335 ad. This was a two-day festival: although the actual consecration of the church was on September 13, the cross itself was brought outside the church on September 14 so that the clergy and faithful could pray before the True Cross, and all could come forward to venerate it.
The celebration is sometimes called Feast of the Glorious Cross.

Side Note:
9/13 is coincidentally the date of the MTV VMAs which I wrote about in KT Perry - Russell Brand and the 2009 MTV VMAs

9/15 is coincidentally the the release date of Dan Brown's (Angels & Demons / The DaVinci Code) next novel The Lost Symbol


Before we get back to our Weeping Virgin symbols above...
We need to look at a little astronomy:

September 4, 2009 - We saw the rings of Saturn disappear due to our planar position relative to the rings. It was also a Full Moon.

September 18, 2009 - (Rosh HaShanah) There will be a New Moon.

October 13th, 2009 - there will be a very close conjunction of Venus and Saturn.
Tiny Mercury will also be just below the pair, and all three will be joined by the Moon on the 16th of October. Venus rising in the morning before the Sun, in ancient times was known as the "Morning Star" Lucifer/Eosphorus (When Venus rises after the Sun it was known as Vesper/Hesperus)

According to Sky News Magazine the Saturn-Venus-and then Mercury and Moon conjunction is one of the Top 10 Best Astonomical events of 2009.
October 8-16, 2009 (8/8)
MERCURY-VENUS-SATURN CONJUNCTIONS (MORNING)
A striking performance of planetary dancing occurs predawn in October. On October 8, Saturn swings within 20 arc minutes of Mercury, then on October 13, it passes 30 arc minutes from Venus. Three days later, as shown here, the waning Moon joins the trio of dawn planets, with Saturn above and Mercury below a pairing of Venus and the Moon



IMAGE COURTESY STARRY NIGHT PRO PLUS™/IMAGINOVA CANADA LTD.

According to the NASA Saturn Cassini Equinox Observation web site:
October 2009 - The early bird gets a wonderful view of Saturn, Mercury and Venus this month. On the 8th look for Saturn, tiny Mercury, and Venus together low on the eastern horizon 45 minutes before sunrise. On the 13th Venus and Saturn make a pretty pair. If you are up early, don't miss the moon near Mars on the 11th and 12th. And on the 16th the moon joins Venus and Saturn, all in the dawn sky. Saturn's ring tilt (showing the north face of the rings) is 1.5 degrees this month.




More Astronomy on ARKSKY:

Venus - By Venus standards, this planet is quite small throughout September; it will be far easier to spot Venus in dark skies, before dawn's first glow, the first week of September; after that the planet very slowly will creep eastward and rise just a bit later each morning, until on September 30, it will be on the horizon at dawn. Approaching superior conjunction with the sun from Earth, the planet is distant now and appears only 12 arc seconds, only one fifth what it can appear when closest to the Earth


Again More Astronomy on ARKSKY:

Venus - Now a brilliant morning object, Venus rises ahead of both Mercury and Saturn (see Mercury, above). Venus is nearly fully illuminated this month and will be the brightest object in the morning skies until it is joined by the waning moon during the second week of October. NOTE: look for a magnificent pairing of Saturn and Venus during the mornings of Oct. 10-16 when Saturn moves eastward and "overtakes" Venus in the sky....an incredible show to watch morning after morning. On Oct. 16, the pair will be joined by the very thin crescent moon.
.
Saturn - Saturn is now in the dawn of morning sky; although rising only as dawn breaks on the first, look for the magnificent ringed planet to rise about 3 hours earlier by the END of October. The rings of the beautiful planet are continuing to "open back up" after being nearly edge on in late 2008 and this tilt makes for a beautiful view telescopically. At this time, the rings are VERY much closes up to our line of sight, and angled ONLY 3 degrees! This results in Saturn being much dimmer than it normally would appear, even to the naked eye, when the rings are wide "open" and reflecting maximum sunlight. NOTE the beautiful pairing with Venus (see VENUS, above) Note that on the morning of Oct. 8, Saturn and MERCURY will be only 1/3 degree apart in the sky!....look about 45 minutes prior to sunrise . THEN on October 13, Saturn will pair up with much brighter VENUS and be only 1/2 degree from that planet. Both of these conjunctions can be photographed in the same low power field of view on many telescopes!

OK, Now back to our Weeping Virgin symbols above...

We have SaTURn/STUR and the Virgin/Virgo/Venus, we know that's her because the astrological symbol of VIRGO is appearing in the Ring and Banner in fig.B. above.

So now that we're on fig.B. above, we see that Saturn and Venus are surrounded by an empty/hollow Ring.

This aspect of the image coincides with multiple things:

It shows us that they are close together, as we see they will be from the astronomy above.

It shows us that their closeness will occur during the Sun in Virgo, via the astrological symbol, which we see will be the case from the dates and astrology.

The Hollow Ring can also represent the closeness to the SUN, which we have read will be occuring during this time of Sept 4, 2009 - Oct 16, 2009.

The Column can represent the Sun, the year(changing), or Mercury - All of which we have read are relevant during this time. We see this accentuated by the fallen towers that I recently wrote about.
The FALLEN, in the AM (AM Radio Towers) also links to Lucifer. Further accentuating the Venus in the AM (Morning) as the Morning Star (See above link).

The book on the broken column likely being the Bible, as it holds the center place on the center altar in a Masonic lodge, it, along with the hour glass, further accentuates the time of the Jewish New Year.

We also see that SaTURn, has his spinning scythe - his rings, in the down, non-threatening or there and blade-turned-away position, as we read from my article previous to this one has just occurred. His Scythe forms a small crescent as will the Moon phase when it joins the 3 planets in conjuction.

As SaTURn stands behind the Virgin unfolding the ringlets of her hair, we can see that this alludes to their closeness, proximity to one another, and also that it will take time to unfold the hidden meaning of this symbol.

The Virign is called the Weeping Virgin to attract our attention to the fact that shes actually "VENUS" - from the ancient mythology of "VENUS weeping over Adonis". This mythos is also depicted in another famous painting by esoteric/occult painter, Nicolas Poussin - most famous for his "Les Bergers d'Arcadie"

The Banner shows us three astrological symbols and one planetary symbol. The Symbols from the top-most right to the lower left are: Leo, SaTURn, Virgo, and Libra

It is also interesting to note that the planet Saturn is Exalted in the constellation/zodiac sign of Libra.
and an interesting note that the planet Mercury is Exalted in the constellation/zodiac sign of Virgo.



From the symbols on the Banner, we can see that the Conjunction of Saturn and Venus, depicted in fig.B., is to take place between the time of the Sun's progression in the Zodiac from Leo to Libra. Which, from the astronomy details above, we see is coinciding with this time.
Add to this the current "elevationally invisible" planar position of Saturn rings, a 14 year phenomenon, and we see that this symbol can clearly point to a Venus-Saturn conjunction that is to occur between LEO and LIBRA in the year 2009 !

In Freemasonry the following views on the symbols are held:

Masonry still retains among its emblems one of a woman weeping over a broken column, holding in her hand a branch of acacia, myrtle, or tamarisk, while Time, we are told, stands behind her combing out the ringlets of her hair. We need not repeat the vapid and trivial explanation... given, of this representation of Isis, weeping at Byblos, over the column torn from the palace of the King, that contained the body of Osiris, while Horus, the God of Time, pours ambrosia on her hair.
- Illustrious Albert Pike 33° - Morals and Dogma, page 379



The broken column denotes the untimely death of our Grand Master Hiram Abiff; the beautiful Virgin, weeping, denotes the Temple, unfinished; the book open before her, that his virtues there lie on perpetual record; the sprig of acacia in her right hand, the timely discovery of his body; the urn in her left, that his ashes were there safely deposited to perpetuate the remembrance of so distinguished a character; and Time standing behind her unfolding the ringlets of her hair denotes that time, patience and perseverance will accomplish all things...
- Duncan's Masonic Ritual and Monitor, by Malcom C. Duncan, [1866]



In The Secret Teachings of All Ages author Manly P. Hall 33° (though he was not a Freemason at the time of the book's publication) says this:
Other authors consider Libra, Scorpio, and Sagittarius as the three murderers of the sun, inasmuch as Osiris was murdered by Typhon, to whom were assigned the thirty degrees of the constellation of Scorpio. In the Christian Mysteries also Judas signifies the Scorpion, and the thirty pieces of silver for which he betrayed His Lord represent the number of degrees in that sign. Having been struck by Libra (the state), Scorpio (the church), and Sagittarius (the mob), the sun (CHiram) is secretly home through the darkness by the signs of Capricorn, Aquarius, and Pisces and buried over the brow of a hill (the vernal equinox). Capricorn has for its symbol an old man with a scythe in his hand. This is Father Time-- a wayfarer--who is symbolized in Masonry as straightening out the ringlets of a young girl's hair. If the Weeping Virgin be considered a symbol of Virgo, and Father Time with his scythe a symbol of Capricorn, then the interval of ninety degrees between these two signs will be found to correspond to that occupied by the three murderers. Esoterically, the urn containing the ashes of CHiram represents the human heart. Saturn, the old man who lives at the north pole, and brings with him to the children of men a sprig of evergreen (the Christmas tree), is familiar to the little folks under the name of Santa Claus, for he brings each winter the gift of a new year.


PhoenixMasonry.org provides another long exploration of this symbol and tells us this:

No logical reason has been advanced why the woman who mourned and read in the book was a "beautiful virgin." No scriptural account tells of the Master Builder having wife or daughter or any female relative except his mother. The Israelites reverenced womanhood and appreciated virginity, but they were just as reverent over mother and child. Indeed, the bearing of children, the increase of the tribe, the desire for sons, was strong in the Twelve Tribes; why, then, the accent upon the virginity of the woman in the monument? "Time standing behind her, unfolding and counting the ringlets of her hair" is dramatic, but also out of character for the times. "Father Time" with his scythe is probably a descendant of the Greek Chromos, who carried a sickle or reaping hook, but the Israelites had no contact with Greece. It may have been natural for whoever invented the marble monument emblem to conclude that Time was both a world-wide and a time immemorial symbolic figure, but it could not have been so at the era in which Solomon's Temple was built.

Stur - Saturn - Lost His Rings... (UPDATE)

On september 4, 2009 an interesting astronomical event occured...

The rings of the second largest planet in our solar system and the sixth from the Sun, Saturn (STUR as the planet was known in Chaldee), appeared to disappear from our vantage point on planet Earth.


How Saturn appeared from Earth on September 4, 2009:


The Earth has passed through the plane of Saturn's rings on September 4. Up to that date and since February 1996, the southern face of the rings has been in view. After passing through Saturn's ring plane, the northern face will come into view and remain so until March 2025.
