Alien Spaceport Discovered In California

Aerial Photography

Last year on my flight home from Albuquerque (where I went to photograph birds at Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge), our plane was driven off-course by a strange stream of magno-gravitronic pulses, and we found ourselves over an area of California not normally seen from commercial planes. The pilot requested that all the passengers lower their window shades. As everyone else did so, I noticed outside my side of the plane curious patterns on the ground below. It appeared to be some kind of airport carved into the desert below. I snapped off a photo of it, then noticed that the 6’5″ “flight attendant” was rushing down the aisle toward me with a serious face. Fortunately, he tripped and fell as another magno pulse rocked our plane. This gave me just enough time to pull the flash card with the photos from my camera and replace it with another before he then confiscated my gear. “Dude, this is not Burma,” I thought, but decided not to resist. Once we landed I got my camera back from another burly “flight attendant”, but all the images had been erased.

Anyway, once I got home I pulled the card containing the surreptitious image from where I had stashed it (you don’t want to know) and viewed it in Photoshop. This is the one image I got before Mr. Man got my stuff:

A top secret, high security alien spaceship depot in the desert east of the Colorado River.  Long suspected but only confirmed to exist for the first time with this photograph, this is a derivative high tech interstellar flight complex arising from work originally conducted at the (nonexistant) Area 51.  Strangely, certain curious aspects of this location, such as the circle and long oval tracks which support landings and liftoff of gravity drive Martian and Saturnian craft, are not shown on Google Earth, while other features in this photograph area such as the long ovoid skateboard track are indeed seen on Google Earth and can be matched to this image.  The US Government will likely deny the mere existence of this bizarre Martian landing area, Alien Spaceship Landing Field

It appears to be some kind of alien spaceport. It could be where Elvis and Michael Jackson are. I think all the TARP money is really going to this place. Maybe its a gigantic doomsday neutron-meso-meta-particuloid accelerator capable of creating a miniature black hole to devour liberal California. What I find curious is that some features in this image can be matched against Google Earth’s imagery, while others cannot. Could Google’s images be subjected to government scrubbing before they are loaded onto the Google Earth servers? I smell a conspiracy. Check out the Google Earth view of this same location. You be the judge of whether something fishy is going on:

From Google Earth, this shows the location of an apparent alien spaceport, but the image appears to have been altered to hide the existence of the facility.

I am undertaking considerable personal risk in sharing this information. If my blog disappears, or I suddenly go silent and stop posting for a while, please start asking the difficult questions on my behalf.

My San Diego pictures are now organized into a gallery of photos of San Diego on this website.

San Diego Coronado Bridge, known locally as the Coronado Bridge, links San Diego with Coronado, California.  The bridge was completed in 1969 and was a toll bridge until 2002.  It is 2.1 miles long and reaches a height of 200 feet above San Diego Bay.  Coronado Island is to the left, and downtown San Diego is to the right in this view looking north

Hotel del Coronado, San Diego

An aerial photo of the Hotel del Coronado, known affectionately as the Hotel Del. It was once the largest hotel in the world, and is one of the country’s few remaining wooden Victorian beach resorts. It sits on the beach on Coronado Island, seen here with downtown San Diego in the distance. It is widely considered to be one of Americas most beautiful and classic hotels. Built in 1888, it was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1977.

Crystal Pier, San Diego

Crystal Pier, a combination hotel and pier in the Pacific Beach community of San Diego, extends 872 feet out into the Pacific Ocean. A few dozen cottages sit on the pier near its base. It was built in 1925. Seen beyond Crystal Pier in this aerial photo are Mission Bay and, to the upper right, downtown San Diego.

Here are a couple of new aerial photos from our recently updated collection of San Diego Photos.

New Point Loma Lighthouse, situated on the tip of Point Loma Peninsula, marks the entrance to San Diego Bay.  The lighthouse rises 70' and was built in 1891 to replace the "old"  Point Loma Lighthouse which was often shrouded in fog

Recently I had a chance to go flying with Ron Niebrugge, an Alaska-based photographer who spends a lot of time shooting in California in winter months. We had a picture-perfect flight, just super, and managed to fly over most of the landmarks we had on our wish list. If you use Google Earth, you can see the flight track we had as well as a sampling of the images I took positioned where they were taken by clicking both of the following two links (you’ll need Google Earth installed for this to work):

I managed a lot of keepers and will be posting some of them in the coming days.

North Island, Coronado Islands, Mexico

Aerial Photography, Islas Coronado, Mexico

From a recent flight over Islas Coronados (Coronado Islands, Mexico) recently, seen here is the western exposure of North Coronado Island viewed from the southwest. Do you see the crack between the rightmost tip of the island and the main island? There is a narrow submerged passageway through that crack from the east to the west side of the island which we have swam through while diving. If the water in the slot is calm, there are often sea lions hanging out there. On this day you can see that the wave energy was high and it would have been a ass-over-teakettle tumbler of a ride for a diver to swim through that passageway.
