ATIT Reheated: Alien Lore from 2010

By Jack Brummet
Alien Lore & Unexplained Phenomena Editor

[thanks Jeff Clinton for the find]

Commander George W. Hoover, the "grandfather" of satellite technology--a friend and close associate of Dr. Werner von Braun--revealed that the truth about Roswell is a lot weirder, and closer to the accounts long ago dismissed as wack-job conspiracies, than we ever guessed. 

Hoover worked many years with with the U.S. Office of Naval Research, won a bazillion awards and medals, made huge contributions to atmospheric balloon research and to Werner von Braun's Project Orbiter--which led to the launch of Explorer I.   After he retired from the Navy, he worked with NASA and various companies in the military-industrial-space complex. He helped develop the first flight simulators, and was a very accomplished pilot himself.

In the 1950's, Dr. Werner Von Braun said "Everybody talks about satellites, then nobody does anything. George Hoover's contribution should never be forgotten."   The Vice Chief of the Navy, Admiral Harry D. Fel, said praised Hoover's contributions and organizational and logistical  brilliance.

Some UFOlogists believe that Hoover also assisted Fred Durant in the early UFO government study group "The Robertson Panel" as well as other official--both public and secret--UFO studies.

" [Hoover offered] the driving spirit, organizing genius, imagination and foresight which set in motion the mighty effort toward the first man-made earth satellite, man's first step toward space flight."  - Vice Chief of the Navy, Admiral Harry D. Felt
According to Anthony Bragalia, and Aurimas Svitojus, George W. Hoover Jr. recently revealed some remarkable tidbits about his father, including: the fact that Hoover Sr., in his official capacity, learned the real story (if there is one) about the Roswell crash sometime in the 1950s, or even earlier.  He also told his son that he had seen "evidence about the Roswell crash event that convinced him that it was neither a balloon nor a hoax."  Hoover, Sr., however would not go beyond that, and offered no further details.  George Hoover also says his dad had "both a personal and professional interest in UFOs." 

George Hoover Jr. says that his father spoke numerous times of the Roswell crash during the 1960s. Remember, this was well before the explosion of UFOlogy/coverups/conspiracies in the mainstream media in the 80's.  In the 50's and 60's, it was rarely spoken of, and UFOs and Alien Lore were not a part of pop culture, or the American psyche in general. 

An article by Anthiony Bragalia says there may be evidence that Hoover assisted Fred Durant of the early UFO government study group "The Robertson Panel" as well as on other official UFO studies.

In 1995 George W. Hoover Sr. left his papers with an associate of the History Channel. Some of Hoover's hints about Roswell that he had made to his own son were later corroborated in private, off-the-record conversations that Commander Hoover had with researcher Dr. William J. Birnes.

Commander George Hoover finally revealed what he really knew about Roswell. He explained the truth, or at least whatever version of the truth he had learned about decades ago.  According to more than one source, that truth was mainly the following:

  • UFOs are not the "biggest secret" the government has been sitting on--it is the entities behind them (or, as wel prefer to call them, The Greys, that are of most concern
  • Roswell was  a crash event of "visitors from somewhere else"
  • The Greys were "not so much interplanetary as much as they were...time travelers." They visitors had transcended time!
  • The visitors are clearly "from the future." There is reason to believe that they may even be "us" from a future Earth, and are not actually visiting, but Coming Home.
  • These "future humans" have the ability to "manipulate reality around us."
  • The government feared the intentions and abilities of the "visitors."  Wouldn't you?
  • These visitors are able to use the power of consciousness in extraordinary ways to morph reality.
  • And, maybe the best, or, most hopeful part:  human beings are far more powerful in potential than we ever dreamed. We can't yet even comprehend our amazing future capabilities.

ATIT Reheated (2011): Alien Lore No. 216 - Our Message In A Bottle, Lobbed Into The Cosmos on the Voyager

By Jack Brummet, Alien Lore Editor

For the last forty years or so, we've beamed messages into the cosmos in hopes of contacting our cousins—if we actually have cousins—way Out There. We take our best guess and fire off something we hope they're smart enough to decode or understand. Some of this stuff is pretty strange, to say the least.

The Pioneer Plaques are identical, gold-plated plaques attached to the Pioneer 10 and 11 spacecraft. The plaques contain a picture of the solar system (which they would presumably understand), a picture of the Pioneer, and a picture of "a hyperfine transition of neutral hydrogen," we were sure that whoever was smart enough to recover our spacecraft would Get It.

According to NASA
, The Pioneer Plaque "is designed to show scientifically educated inhabitants of some other star system, who might intercept it millions of years from now, when Pioneer was launched, from where, and by what kind of beings. (With the hope that they would not invade Earth.) The design is etched into a 6 inch by 9 inch gold-anodized aluminum plate, attached to the spacecraft's antenna support struts in a position to help shield it from erosion by interstellar dust. The radiating lines at left represents the positions of 14 pulsars, a cosmic source of radio energy, arranged to indicate our sun as the home star of our civilization. The "1-" symbols at the ends of the lines are binary numbers that represent the frequencies of these pulsars at the time of launch of Pioneer F relative of that to the hydrogen atom shown at the upper left with a "1" unity symbol. The hydrogen atom is thus used as a "universal clock," and the regular decrease in the frequencies of the pulsars will enable another civilization to determine the time that has elapsed since Pioneer F was launched. The hydrogen is also used as a "universal yardstick" for sizing the human figures and outline of the spacecraft shown on the right. The hydrogen wavelength, about 8 inches, multiplied by the binary number representing "8" shown next to the woman gives her height, 64 inches. The figures represent the type of creature that created Pioneer. The man's hand is raised in a gesture of good will. Across the bottom are the planets, ranging outward from the Sun, with the spacecraft trajectory arching away from Earth, passing Mars, and swinging by Jupiter."

The Voyager Record, is literally a metal LP...a long-player. It even includes Chuck Berry's "Johnny B. Goode."

The 12 inch gold-plated copper discs contain "greetings in 60 languages, samples of music from different cultures and eras, and natural and man-made sounds from Earth. They also contain electronic information that an advanced technological civilization could convert into diagrams and photographs. Currently, both Voyager probes are sailing adrift in the black sea of interplanetary space, having left our solar system years ago."

The Arecibo Image is a short binary message beamed into space. When decoded, it creates an image that looks similar to an 80's video game:

Dr. Frank Drake, of Cornell University, wrote the message, with help from Carl Sagan, and others. The encoded message has seven parts:

1) the numbers one (1) through ten (10);
2) the atomic numbers of the elements hydrogen, carbon, nitrogen, oxygen, and phosphorus which make up DNA;
3) the formulas for the sugars and bases in the nucleotides of DNA/the number of nucleotides in DNA;
4) a graphic of the double helix structure of DNA;
5) a graphic figure of a man, the dimension (physical height) of an average man, and the human population of Earth ;
6) a graphic of Earth's solar system;
7) a graphic of the Arecibo radio telescope and the dimension (the physical diameter) of the transmitting antenna dish.

[Ed's note: Arecibo in Puerto Rico sends messages to the universe, and is the site where SETI attempts to track blips in the universe and link them to other intelligent beings.]

It will take 25,000 years for the message to reach its target of of stars (and, presumably, an additional 25,000 years for the return trip for any reply). Interestingly, the stars the message is aimed at will no longer be there when it arrives. According to a Cornell News press release of Nov. 12, 1999, the real purpose of the message was not to make contact, but to demonstrate the capabilities of newly installed equipment.

The Teenage Message was beamed into space in 2001. It starts with some radio-transmission Doppler-tuning and then segues into theremin music, and ends with more binary images, including a logo for the Teenage Message program itself.

According to SETI, in 2001, "a group of Russian teens from Moscow, Kaluga, Voronezh, and Zheleznogorsk participated directly and via the Internet in composing a Teen-Age Message (TAM) to extraterrestrial intelligence, and in the selection of target stars. Their message was transmitted in the Autumn of that year, from the Evpatoria Deep Space Center."

"Two previous interstellar radio messages (IRM), one transmitted from Arecibo in 1974 and the one from Evpatoria in 1999, had digital format and represented binary scans of one (Are) or 23 (Evp) black-and-white stylized images. But one might suppose that transmission of analog IRMs is also possible. So, before composing the message's content (as well as trying to decode future signals from ETI), let us try to determine such a message's possible format and structure."

Television Signals are a longstanding science fiction trope in which greys, or "Martians," or aliens intercept television shows and are so impressed with a show that it becomes the basis for their entire civilization. You may have seen some variation of this story on The Twilight Zone. If our TV signals really do become extraterrestrial messages, who wouldn't love to see the results?

I'd like to see the Hee Haw or the Andy Griffith Show as the basis of a civilization, or maybe Celebrity Boxing, F Troop, The Sopranos,  My Mother The Car, or maybe even Cop Rock.

25 quotes on UFOs by Presidents, Astronauts, and Scientists (and others)

By Jack Brummet

  • UFOs: The reliable cases are uninteresting and in the interesting cases are unreliable. — Carl Sagan, Other Worlds, 1975.
  •  I believe that these extraterrestrial vehicles and their crews are visiting this planet from other planets which obviously are a little more … advanced than we are… — Astronaut L. Gordon Cooper, Mercury 7, letter to the United Nations, 1978.
  • I can assure you that, given they exist, these flying saucers are made by no power on this Earth. — President Harry S. Truman, 4 April 1950, at a press conference.
  • I have argued flying saucers with lots of people. I was interested in possible. They do not appreciate that the problem is not to demonstrate whether it's possible or not but whether it's going on or not. — Richard Feynman
  • [The Airship] looked like a great black cigar with a fishlike tail….The body was at least 100 feet long and attached to it was a triangular tail, one apex being attached to the main body. The surface of the airship looked as if it were made of aluminum, which exposure to wind and weather had turned dark….The airship went at tremendous speed. As it neared Lorin it turned quickly and disappeared in the direction of San Francisco. At half past 8 we saw it again, when it took about the same direction and disappeared. — Case Gilson, reported in the Oakland Tribune, Dec 1, 1896.
  • It was the darndest thing I've ever seen. It was big, it was very bright, it changed colors and it was about the size of the Moon. We watched it for ten minutes, but none of us could figure out what it was. One thing's for sure, I'll never make fun of people who say they've seen unidentified objects in the sky.
  • If I become President, I'll make every piece of information this country has about UFO sightings available to the public and the scientists — President Jimmy Carter

  • I am completely convinced that [UFOs] have an out-of-world basis.  — Dr. Walther Riedel, LIFE Magazine, 7 April 1952. Research director and chief designer at Germany's rocket center in Peenemunde. He also worked on classified projects for the U.S. after WWII.
  • After I give lectures — on almost any subject — I am often asked, "Do you believe in UFOs?". I'm always struck by how the question is phrased, the suggestion that this is a matter of belief and not evidence. I'm almost never asked, "How good is the evidence that UFOs are alien spaceships?" — Carl Sagan, The Demon Haunted World, 1995.
  • For reasons of national security and out of consideration for some people still alive I have omitted certain material. Some of this material cannot be made available for many years, perhaps for many generations. — Preface to the Memoirs of Harry S Truman, 1946-52 Vol II: Years of Trial and Hope.
  • Of course the flying saucers are real and they are interplanetary… . The cumulative evidence for the existence of UFOs is quite overwhelming and I accept the fact of their existence. — Air Chief Marshal Lord Dowding, RAF, August 1954.
  • I believe that these extraterrestrial vehicles and their crews are visiting this planet from other planets--which obviously are a little more technically advanced than we are here on earth. —   Astronaut L. Gordon Cooper,  Mercury 7
  • We all know that UFOs are real. All we need to ask is where do they come from. —   Astronaut Edgar D. Mitchell, after his Apollo 14 Moon flight in 1971.
  • Flying saucers are real. Too many good men have seen them, that don't have hallucinations. —   Captain Edward 'Eddie' Rickenbacker

  • I've been asked [about UFOs] and I've said publicly I thought they were somebody else, some other civilization. —   Astronaut Eugene Cernan, Apollo 17, in the Los Angeles Times, 1973.
  • I've been convinced for a long time that the flying saucers are real and interplanetary. In other words we are being watched by beings from outer space. —   Albert M. Chop, deputy public relations director at NASA
  • I think that it is much more likely that the reports of flying saucers are the results of the known irrational characteristics of terrestrial intelligence than of the unknown rational efforts of extra-terrestrial intelligence. — Richard Feynman
  • Our journeys to the stars will be made on spaceships created by determined, hardworking scientists and engineers applying the principles of science, not aboard flying saucers piloted by little gray aliens from some other dimension. — Robert A. Baker, 'The Aliens Among Us: Hypnotic Regression Revisited.
  • Until they come to see us from their planet, I wait patiently. I hear them saying: Don't call us, we'll call you. — Marlene Dietrich, Venus, 1962.
  • A circle of fire coming in the sky, noiseless, one rod long with its body and one rod wide. After some days these things became more numerous, shining more than the brightness of the sun. — From a series of Egyptian hieroglyphs on a papyrus dated to the reign of Thutmose III (1504-1450 BC)
  • It is my thesis that flying saucers are real, and that they are space ships from another solar system. I think that they possibly are manned by intelligent observers who are members of a race that may have been investigating our earth for centuries. — Hermann Oberth, 'Flying Saucers Come from a Distant World,' in The American Weekly,  October 24, 1954.

  • UFOs are as real as the airplanes that fly over your head… . I'm so concerned about what the consequences might be of starting an intergalactic war, that I just think I had to say something… . The secrecy involved in all matters pertaining to the Roswell incident was unparalleled. The classification was, from the outset, above top secret, so the vast majority of U.S. officials and politicians, let alone a mere allied minister of defence, were never in-the-loop. — Paul Hellyer, Canada — s Defence Minister from 1963-67, speech at the University of Toronto, September 25, 2005.
  • The phenomenon of UFOs does exist, and it must be treated seriously. — Mikhail Gorbachev, 'Soviet Youth,'  May 4, 1990.
  • As far as I know, an alien spacecraft did not crash in Roswell, New Mexico, in 1947… . If the United States Air Force did recover alien bodies, they didn't tell me about it either, and I want to know. — President Bill Clinton, reply to a letter from a child asking about the Roswell Incident

2016 UFO distribution map (the northwest is a hotbed of sightings)

As you can see, we in the northwest report a lot of UFOs. Somehow these craft largely avoid what are sometimes known as the flyover states.

President Ronald Reagan on the movie ET and alien life

By Jack Brummet, Alien Lore Ed.

Over the years, RWR made many references and allusions to UFOs and aliens/greys, including discussing the time he saw a UFO. He and Nancy were portrayed in one of the last episodes (maybe the last) of the great series #DarkSkies.

Here is an audio clip and transcript of Steven Spielberg discussing Reagan's reaction to the film ET.

Quint: "Now, I've heard a story that I wanted to run by you. I have no idea if it's true, but an effects friend of mine told me about a special screening of E.T. for Ronald Reagan. Have you heard this story?"

Steven Spielberg: "I was there!"

Quint: "The story I heard is that when Reagan saw it he started talking about how close to reality it was and he was quickly ushered out of the room. Is that true?"

Steven Spielberg: No, he wasn't ushered out of the room. He was the President of the United States! Nobody could usher Ronald Reagan out of the room! It was in the White House screening room and Reagan got up to thank me for bringing the film to show the President, the First Lady and all of their guests, which included Sandra Day O'Connor in her first week of as a Justice of the Supreme Court, and it included some astronauts... I think Neil Armstrong was there, I'm not 100% certain, but it was an amazing, amazing evening. 

"He just stood up and he looked around the room, almost like he was doing a headcount, and he said, "I wanted to thank you for bringing E.T. to the White House. We really enjoyed your movie," and then he looked around the room and said, "And there are a number of people in this room who know that everything on that screen is absolutely true." And he said it without smiling! But he said that and everybody laughed, by the way. The whole room laughed because he presented it like a joke, but he wasn't smiling as he said it."

"The room did laugh and then later on I'll never forget my conversation with the President. He pulled me aside, he said... and I can't do Reagan. I wish I could do that breathy, wonderful voice of his... And Nancy Reagan was standing right next to him and the President said to me, "I only have one criticism about your movie," and I said "What's that?" He said, "How long were the end credits?" I said, "Oh, I don't know. Maybe three, three and a half minutes?" He said, "In my day, when I was an actor, our end credits were maybe 15 seconds long." He said, "Why don't you let everybody get a credit... three and a half, four minutes, that's fine, but only show that inside the industry, but throughout the rest of the country reduce your credits to 15 seconds at the end?" Nancy Reagan turned to him and said, "Oh, Ronny, they can't do that. You know that." And he went, "Oh, yes, yes. I suppose." (laughs) That was the extent of my conversation about that. That was his only criticism, he felt the end credits were too long! Quint: So, do you think he actually let something slip there? Steven Spielberg: I don't think he let something slip there, no. I think he delivered a joke without smiling, without a little bit of a twinkle behind the joke. I think the joke landed because everybody laughed, but because I'm a little bit of a Ufologist I was hoping that there was something more to the joke than met my eye. I'm sorry to say I think he was simply trying to tell a joke."

Alien Lore: An August, 1950 CIA UFO intelligence report

By Jack Brummet, Alien Lore Ed.

By the 1970’s researchers  knew that the CIA had a large body of UFO/alien research material.  In 1978, the group Ground Saucer Watch forced the CIA to release  900 pages of UFO records under Freedom of Information Act requests. A researcher, Brad Sparks, believes that 200 more documents were directly referenced in those 900 pages, but were not included in the release.

A recently found CIA record
seems to be a copy of information from  US Air Force Intelligence. The subject is “Unidentified Airborne Object”. “At Sea – North Atlantic” is the location. As usual, there are extensive redactions of names and other details.  See the transcription below...

1.On 4 Aug 50 at 10 am my ship, while on a heading of 2450 true, with a smooth sea and clear weather, visibility 14 miles, barometer reading 30.03, was underway from Walton, Nova Scotia, to an East Coast US port. I was in the chart room just aft the bridge when Third Mate, who was at mid-bridge checking the compass, shouted that there was a flying object off the starboard bow. I immediately ascended the conning tower and by this time the object was on our starboard beam. It was travelling on a reciprocal course to ours about 50 or 100 feet above the water at an estimated speed of over 25 mph. From the conning tower i observed it with my binoculars for a period of approximately a minute and a half when it disappeared into the horizon in a north-easterly direction. I would estimate that the closest it approached my ship was one thousand feet and it was an ovular cylindrical shaped object the like of which i have never seen before. The object was quite small and I would judge that its diameter was approximately 10 feet. It had a depth but to what extent I was unable to observe. The object made no noise and as it passed abeam our ship it appeared to pick up considerable speed. It was not flying smoothly but impressed me as having a churning or rotary motion. It had a shiny aluminium colour and sparkled in the sunlight.


2. I was on the main deck, port side, just forward of the bridge when the Third Mate shouted there was an object on our starboard bow. I looked off to the starboard and saw an object elliptic shape looking like half an egg cut lengthwise travelling at a great rate of speed on a course reciprocal to our own. I immediately ran out to the stern, port side, and with my glasses was able to observe the object disappearing into the horizon. From the time I was first alerted to its presence until it disappeared for site, 15 seconds elapsed. I believe that it was travelling at a tremendous rate of speed, probably faster than 500 mph. During the time I saw it, it was approximately 70 feet off the water and i judge it was approximately 10 miles away. I clearly saw its shadow on the water. I last observed it off the starboard quarter and it seemed to be increasing its speed and ascending. It had an elliptic shape and I could clearly see that it had three dimensions. It wobbled in the air, made no noise, and was a metallic white in colour. The length was approximately six times the breadth and its belly had a depth of possibly 5’.


3. At 10:00 am on 4 Aug 50 as I was checking the compass at mid-bridge through a bridge port hole, I observed a flying object off the starboard bow. I immediately shouted to the Captain, who was in the chart room, and the Chief Mate, who was below on the port deck, of my observation and went out onto the flying bridge myself. The object was approximately 70’ above the horizon at a distance of 12 miles. It came toward us, then ran on a course reciprocal to our and turned off into the horizon in the northeast. I clearly saw its shadow on the water. Its impression of the object was that it was elliptical, not unlike a Japanese diamond box kite in shape. I have no idea of its size but length was ix times the breadth and it had a depth of from two to five feet. It made no noise and was travelling at a tremendous rate of speed. As it traveled through the air it made a spinning or wobbly motion. After it disappeared in the horizon, I saw it reappeared several seconds later, ascending at even faster speed than when I first observed it. I have no idea what this object was, I never saw anything comparable to it before, and it was one of the most frightening experiences I have ever had. I roughly estimate that the object travelled 28 miles during the 15 seconds I had it under observation.

Collector’s Note: The Chief and Third Mates were interviewed on 8 August by two Intelligence Officers. The Captain who was absent at that time, was interviewed on 9 August by only one of the two Intelligence Officers. In describing the occurrences, the Chief and Third Mate reenacted their behaviour at the time of sighting, and the period from the time the Chief Mate saw the object abeam until he reached the after deck and saw it disappear off the starboard quarter was timed at 15 seconds. In laying the angles of observation out on a chart and assuming the object was ten miles distant and taking the time into account, it is evident it was certainly travelling at a very high rate of speed, which approximated 400 to 500 miles per hour. It will be noted that there is a tremendous discrepancy between the Captains estimate of speed and the estimate of the two officers which could not be explained as they were very careful in making their statements and asserted that their observations had been correct. All three men were quite evidently very much upset by the sighting. Aside from the discrepancies, it was quite evident to the Intelligence Officers who interviewed these men that they had certainly seen some conventional type of aircraft. XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

Alien Lore No. 397: Marine Officer says he spent 17 years on MARS protecting five human colonies from Martians

By Jack Brummet, Alien Lore Editor

NASA artist's concept of the Mars Excursion Module in a 1963 NASA manned mission to Mars study

A now retired US Marine claims that he spent 17 years on MARS protecting five human colonies from Martians.  The retired officer, known only as Captain Kaye, also claims to have served in a secret 'space fleet' run by a multinational organisation called the Earth Defense Force.

The ex-naval infantryman, who uses the pseudonym Captain Kaye, says he was posted to the Red Planet to protect five human colonies from indigenous Martian life forms.

He claims he then spent nearly three years serving in a secret 'space fleet' run by a multinational organisation called the Earth Defense Force, which recruits military personnel from countries including the US, Russia and China.

Alien Lore: Tom Waits on Aliens

By Jack Brummet, Alien Lore Ed.

"My dad was a radio expert in the army, and in addition to bicycle repair, he had me building my own radios and sending away for kits and creating my own little shortwave radios. And I picked up things when I was a child that I swore were extra-terrestrial, and maintain to this day that I made contact, or at least I was on the receiving end of a relationship with an extra-terrestrial but was unable to communicate with him because my radio couldn’t transmit...... It was a language that did not exist. It was not Russian, I was picking up Russia and Poland and Hungary and China— It was a language, but it was not from around here. And here I was unable to transmit. On earth, we never acknowledge that they exist because it doesn’t fit into our beliefs about the creation of the universe. God made the earth in seven days, then he rested. The idea that there would be creatures out there. The government is apparently keeping creatures they found, and in top secret bunkers in New Mexico, never to be viewed by the public. I believe that.[from a conversation with Jim Jarmusch recorded in 1992]

Departing Obama adviser John Podesta on UFOs and full disclosure

By Jack Brummet, Alien Lore Ed,

Departing BHO senior adviser John Podesta recently reflected on his latest White House post Friday, listing the best moments and biggest regrets from the past year. His biggest regret: keeping the American people in the dark about UFOs.

At a 2002 press conference organized by the Coalition for Freedom of Information, Podesta spoke on the importance of Full Disclosure: “It’s time to find out what the truth really is that’s out there,”  he said. “We ought to do it, really, because it’s right. We ought to do it, quite frankly, because the American people can handle the truth. And we ought to do it because it’s the law.”

Alien Lore: Roswell Alien Photo Slides To Be Released: ‘Smoking Gun’ Evidence Of 1947 UFO Crash?

By Jack Brummet, Alien Lore Ed.

"A team of UFO researchers announced at a livestreamed online press conference on Feb. 4 that it has obtained Kodachrome slide images that provide “smoking gun” evidence that aliens are real and that an alien UFO crash actually occurred in Roswell in 1947, despite government denial.
"According to Anthony Bragaliawho was involved in investigating and authenticating the purported photographic evidence, the slides represent “stunning visual evidence of a humanoid creature that was found crashed near Roswell.”

The Arecibo Image (decoded)

By Jack Brummet, alien lore ed.

Like the famous gold record on board the Voyager, the Arecibo message is yet another attempt to contact our cousins Out There.  The Arecibo Image is a short binary message the U.S. beamed into outer space. When decoded, it creates an image like something from a 1980's videogame.

Dr. Frank Drake, of Cornell University, wrote the message, with help from Carl Sagan, and others. The encoded message has seven parts. 

It will take 25,000 years for the message to reach its target of of stars (and, presumably, an additional 25,000 years for the return trip for any reply). Interestingly, the stars the message is aimed at will no longer be there when it arrives. According to a Cornell News press release of Nov. 12, 1999, the real purpose of the message was not to make contact, but to demonstrate the capabilities of newly installed equipment.

Here is a key explaining the various parts of the image.

Alien Lore No. 266 - UFO over the moon?

By Jack Brummet, Alien Lore Ed.

Crow Tripplehorn, a moon observer who shoots high definition videos through an 8-inch telescope -- captured intriguing footage this month of a UFO flying above the moon's surface. 

On Tripplehorn's YouTube page, he pledges to "never run deceptive or misleading clips on this channel. I strive to shoot the highest quality UFO and anomaly footage possible with the equipment at my disposal." 

Well, we all know the veracity of UFOlogists, but this guy actually sounds fairly sane. The intriguing thing about the video, according to Tripplehorn, is that the object shows enough variation in the navigation that it could not be a satellite.

Alien Lore No. 264 - Intelligent Life Beyond Earth

By Jack Brummet, Alien Lore Ed.

At a panel discussion on Monday, scientists from NASA said they were closer than ever to finding out for sure if we have cousins Out There.

Former astronaut and NASA Administrator Charles Bolden made it clear where NASA's collective head is on this issue in his opening statement: 

"Do we believe there is life beyond Earth?" he asked. "I would venture to say that most of my colleagues here today say it is improbable that in the limitless vastness of the universe we humans stand alone."
