Blue Moon photo by Spuz Shissler - Nov 24, 2009 This “blue moon” photo with orbs encircling it was taken about 11:30 a.m. on November 24, 2009 by Spuz Shissler from her home in Linville Falls, NC. She’s successfully taken many “blue moon” photos since her first one in July 2009, but this one shows encircling orbs more clearly. She continues to use a basic Canon Power Shot A530.

EDITOR’S NOTE: Since her first Sky Ship sighting from her Cashiers home on June 28, 2008, Glynis Heenan has seen Sky Ships so frequently that we only report the more unique ones. This sighting also was witnessed by her daughter and mother.

Sky Ship hovers over house all night

I was standing on the top deck of my house about 9 p.m. on Sunday, October 25, 2009 scanning the clear night sky when I saw another Sky Ship. It was southwest of my house and directly above a small waterfall that’s about 500 yards away. The ship was as big as my thumb at arm’s length and pulsating rainbow colors. There were gold rays on top with green, red and blue lights pulsating from the middle on down.

I was a little excited and nervous because it’s been awhile since a ship has been so close. It’s also been a long time since I’ve seen a Sky Ship with pulsating rainbow colors. After getting a good view of it, I ran inside and called my daughter, Devon, and my mother to come and look. They both saw it.

Next, I grabbed my cell phone camera and snapped pictures of the ship from every angle around the house. While I was doing this, I saw another small Sky Ship to the left of the larger one. I managed to get a photo of the two as well.

I watched the two Sky Ships until I couldn’t stay awake any longer. When I looked out the window the next morning at 6 a.m., THE SKY SHIP WAS THERE IN THE SAME PLACE!

I did not say anything to Devon when she got up, but the first thing she said to me was “Mom, I looked out the window and saw the Sky Ship this morning.”

Second object crosses Sun’s heliosphere
before satellite photo feed stops

An unidentified white object entered the Sun’s immediate heliosphere on September 25, 2009. Thanks to a satellite camera snapping photos every 15 minutes, we were able to watch the object travel slowly across the heliosphere. It never once blinked in and out of sight.

After traveling across three-fourths of the observable heliosphere, a second white object entered on October 12, 2009 following the basic route of the first object. This one was smaller and traveled more rapidly. For four days, both objects appeared in every satellite photo.

Then on Friday, October 16, after the second object was right in the middle of the heliosphere, all satellite photo feed stopped being shown for four days. When the photo feed reappeared on October 20, 2009, only the larger object was in sight and it was about to exit the viewable heliosphere.

This series of six rapidly shot photos shows the “blue moon” near the Sun changing in appearance from one moment to the next. The photos were taken midday from Dillsboro, NC on September 27, 2009 by Mary Joyce with a simple digital Cannon camera.

EDITOR’S NOTE: It’s beginning to look like the object in the following photos has taken up residence near the Sun. It may very well be the “blue moon” many people have been capturing with regular digital cameras since April 2009.
SOHO - Sept 25, 2009 This is another photo from the Solar Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO) which is a joint venture between NASA and the European Space Agency. It was taken Friday, September 25, 2009 and shows a bright object to the right of the Sun.
SOHO - Sept 27, 2009 Two days later, September 27, 2009, the same object was still appearing to the right of the Sun. In fact, we were able to see 64 photographs of it over that 24 hour period. In the last 12 shots, which were taken between 9 p.m. and midnight, there is a horizontal ray of light that radiates beyond the circle of light. The last photo of the day is shown here.
SOHO - Sept 29, 2009

When we checked on SOHO photos on September 29, 2009, the same object in the same location continues to appear in every photo. We’re posting one of those.

This is another photo from the Solar Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO) which is a joint venture between NASA and the European Space Agency. It was taken Saturday, September 19, 2009 and shows a dark object to the right of the Sun. We received it from an intermediary for a self-professed “fanatical amateur astronomer” who monitors SOHO’s live video feed and tries to capture significant photos before they’re wiped away from public view.

SOHO - taken 9-19-09

EDITOR’S NOTE: We’re providing the following information about an object seen over China during the July 22, 2009 total solar eclipse because it just might be the same object we first dubbed the “blue moon” in April 2009.

The British newspaper, The Daily Mail, confirmed on September 7, 2009 that an unexplained object was captured on film for 40 minutes during the July 22, 2009 total solar eclipse over China. The newspaper quoted the Purple Mountain Observatory and Chinese Academy of Sciences as saying:

China Eclipse UFO

“China had discovered near the sun, by observation staff, an unidentified object. Its physical nature remains to be further studied. Currently manpower is being organized to deal with this data, complete the data analysis and reveal the scientific results. This will take at least one year’s time to finalize.

“Purple Mountain Observatory, Chinese Academy of Sciences Fellow Ji Hai-sheng said at present it is impossible to speculate what the unidentified object is.”

The photo shown here was included with a September 12, 2009 article about the same object on the Shanghai Daily’s online news service

EDITOR’S NOTE: An amateur astronomer sent out an e-mail with these photos taken by the Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO) which is a joint venture between NASA and the European Space Agency. We trust you will find these thought-provoking.

Source of photos
: “There have been anomalies showing up on SOHO just about every day for the past week. They scrub everything as soon as it shows up, so thankfully there are a lot of fanatical amateur astronomers like me who check the data about a dozen times per day so that we can capture the anomalies. “ Planet X: “Before you Planet X-ers go off on your tangent, let me be clear – ABSOLUTELY CLEAR – that Planet X is complete and total disinformation. Planet X once existed but is no longer. If you do not believe me, look at the Sun – 40 days without a sunspot. Reckon your big bad brute Nibiru (Planet X) would not be affecting the Sun?”

Source of craft in photos: “These craft that we are seeing are coming from the True Divine Creation and they are coming in multitudes. They cannot be hidden. . . . “

Intense cosmic energy: “There is a lot of energy in the cosmos right now -- high frequency cosmic rays that are off the charts. That is what is affecting the solar system to the point of fragmentation (even putting planets/asteroids into reverse orbital spins), and science can’t figure out what the object is that is creating these cosmic rays. I will tell what is creating them. It is True Divine Mind – not an object, a source, the Source of all perfection and beauty and bliss. ”

SOHO Photo of Grandmother Sky Ship

August 18, 2009:
We would like to bring forth the image of a traditional egg-shaped Russian doll that fits in the palm of a hand. It is painted with intricacy and given a heavy coating of glaze. Most importantly, it divides at the midline into two halves revealing a duplicate of itself only slightly smaller. That one too can be opened revealing a still smaller duplicate. In a similar way, a grandmother sky ship contains mother ships that contain scout ships.

What you have dubbed the “blue moon” and documented with fuzzy photos is a mother ship that has been launched from a grandmother ship. An edge of a grandmother ship just barely can be seen in the first of a series of photos taken on June 30, 2009 and displayed in the photo section of the Sky Ship website.

This grandmother ship has been photographed in its entirety by the Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO )* on many occasions. None of these photos, however, has been displayed on SOHO’s public access website.

A troubled soul within SOHO, who believes truth should not be withheld from the public, absconded with one of the photos of the grandmother ship. You are to include a copy of it in the photo section of the Sky Ship website.

Many of those who greedily clutch such information as their privileged secrets will blow off this grandmother ship reality with all sorts of conjured theories just in the way they have dismissed scout ships as weather balloons. Do not be hoodwinked by conjured theories just because they come from those with various forms of scientific credentials.

As you ponder the absconded photo of a grandmother ship, send out prayers of gratitude and prayers of protection for the troubled soul who seeks only to reveal truth to all of mankind.

Blue Moon - July 16, 2009 - Linville Falls, NC
We received the following photo on July 16, 2009 from Spuz Shissler who lives in Linville Falls, NC. She took it a few days earlier from her backyard with a Canon Power Shot A530. The "blue moon" is very obvious. Upon close inspection of the original photo, we also saw a series of faint orbs slightly arcing to the left of the "blue moon."   » click to enlarge photo

June 28, 2009 - No-Zoom photos

In this series of photos, I didn’t use my zoom until the very last shot. In a matter of moments, the white object near the sun appeared, disappeared and reappeared. When I used the zoom, the white orb turned out to be the “blue moon” phenomena with fuzzy orbs around it which I’ve captured in previous photos displayed on this website. These photos were taken mid-day on June 28, 2009 from Sylva, NC with a small Canon digital camera.

June 30, 2009

The first photo reveals the edge of a large, round, blue object directly above the sun with a smaller, brighter circle of light emerging from it. After that, the smaller circle turns blue and descends toward the sun and almost completely disappears into its brightness. In the last photo, the blue circle just barely protrudes from the left side of the sun. These photos were taken mid-day on June 30, 2009 from Sylva, NC with a small Canon digital camera. As I’ve done before, the photos were snapped in rapid sequence with the camera set on zoom.

“Blue Moon” Sky Ship

On Saturday, May 30, 2009 as I drove on Highway 74 from Sylva to Waynesville, NC, I suddenly felt I should turn on the road through Barber’s Orchard and take photos of the Sun. I had extra time, so I pulled into the parking lot of the only church on that road and snapped a series of photos in rapid sequence about 11:30 a.m.

The results were similar to what I’d taken from Western Carolina University on April 5, 2009. This time, though, I got more than one photo of orbs of light around a larger blue orb which I call the “blue moon.”

For comparison, click on photo #15 from the April 5th photo series. Also read the Sky Ship Message from May 31, 2009 which explains the “blue moon” and the orbs encircling it.

Skyfishing For UFOs In Western North Carolina

Mary Joyce, a resident of Sylva, North Carolina, went "skyfishing" with her new digital camera. Watch this video to hear her describe what she captured on April 5th 2009.

Here's Mary's story -
Sky Fishing for Sky Ships

I bought my first digital camera on March 21, 2009. The very next day, I went to the big lake in Glenville, NC where there have been many sky ship sightings, and tried “sky fishing.” That’s a term for scanning the sky with your camera and snapping lots of photos even if you don’t see anything. Well, that was a bust. No sky ships showed up when I reviewed the photos.

Then on Saturday, April 5, 2009, I tried again. I went to the highest ridge at Western Carolina University, which is another place where many sky ships have been seen. This time 21 photos showed unusual phenomena around the sun which was in the high-noon position. All the photos were taken one right after the other from the same spot in the parking lot behind and south of Robertson Hall.

I couldn’t see anything with my naked eye and couldn’t even look into the sun, but when I reviewed the photos I’d snapped, there was a blue moon-like circle that appeared in all the shots. From one frame to the next, the “blue moon” changed in either size or its distance from the sun.

In one especially interesting photo, when the “blue moon” was further away from the sun, it seemed to be breaking into pieces (photo #15). But when I enlarged that portion of the photo, I saw that it was encircled with at least eight orbs of light. Some were lighter shades of blue and others were dull shades of gold.

Another unusual aspect of the photos was that the sun was encircled with rose-colored orbs or elongated orbs of light. The rays of light from the sun, along with the rose-colored orbs, created a medieval style Christian cross.

It’s important to point out that the 22nd photo I snapped in this series displayed no special visual phenomena. I also took other photos of the sun the next day and did not capture anything unusual. I found it interesting that my first successful “sky fishing” trip was at the start of fishing season and that the rose crosses appeared the day before Palm Sunday.

orbs - photographed by Glynis Heenan
orbs in the yard - photos by Glynis Heenan

Orbs Appear in the Trees

I almost always check for sky ships after dark. It was no different on March 17, 2009. Around 9 p.m., I stepped outside and saw a ship in the distant western sky. When I snapped a photo of the ship, it looked a bit like a faded moon, but the next photos were a first for me. They showed the nearby trees quickly filling with orbs of light. By the final photo, there were so many orbs that they looked like ornamental leaves on the tree branches. They even spilled into the open yard between me and the trees. It was impossible to count the number of orbs. – Glynis Heenan

Valentine’s Day Sighting

Sky Ship - Lake Glenville, NC - photographed by Glynis Heenan
Sky Ship sighting - Lake Glenville, NC - spotted by Glynis Heenan
photos by Dena Williams


Very early on Saturday, February 14, 2009, I was wide awake and decided to go to Lake Glenville to scout for Sky Ships. Bingo! From the south end of the lake at about 6 a.m., I saw a bluish light to the north that was in a traditional saucer shape. It was twice as big as any star. I watched it for about 15 minutes. During that time it made horizontal movements but basically stayed in the same area.

A friend who’s a photographer, Dena Williams, lives on the lake and I decided to wake her up to see the Sky Ship. When she came outside, she saw two pulsating bluish lights that were of equal size. I telepathically asked the Sky Ships to come closer and one did. It also illuminated more. We watched it for two hours until it faded away with the daylight.

Dena and I then decided we’d go hunting for the lights that evening. At 8 p.m. at the same place on Lake Glenville, we saw a big red ball in the sky. At arm’s length it was the size of a tennis ball. It pulsated red, green and gold colors. That’s when Dena took these two photos.

Because Dena is a skeptic and couldn’t believe what she was seeing, we then drove up and down the roads for 30 minutes to check out the ball of light from every angle. But no matter how hard she tried, she couldn’t explain away the phenomenon we saw in the sky.
