Upcoming Appearances


Just wanted to drop by and let everyone know that I will be appearing with my co-author, Richard C. Hoagland @ the Conscious Life Expo in Los Angeles, February 9-11, 2008. Richard will be giving two presentations, one on Sunday, Feb. 10th @ 12 noon, and the other on Monday the 11th @ 7PM. Richard and I will be signing books on both days, so if you want to bring your copy of Dark Mission by we'd be glad to sign them for you.

Richard is also appearing in Seattle at the "Psychic Spectrum Expo" at the Double Tree Hotel @ SeaTac Airport on Saturday, Feb. 22nd from 7-9 PM.

I still haven't decided if I'm going to the Seattle event, but it is my hometown and a chance to catch up with family and friends, so I'm leaning that way. It's just that I hate to fly.

Details on all these appearances can be found on Richard's website,


  1. Not sure who Sir Patrick Moore is, or how he "proved" his opinion that it's just a rock, but I'd be interested in looking at his data.

    I don't think it's anything, Richard thinks it might be, and we continue to argue back and forth.

    One object taken in isolation, no matter how strange, never impresses me. That said, there are a couple of other objects in the panorama that I think are pretty interesting.

    This is a prime example of how the mainstream media only covers this subject when they think they can easily shoot it down.

  2. I don't think it's anything, Richard thinks it might be, and we continue to argue back and forth.

    Why does it have the shape of that well known old grainy 'photo' of Bigfoot ?

    Somone has a sense of humor?

  3. O.K. So what has been the result of the release of your book thusfar?

    Have there been any reactions or responses from government, NASA, SPSR, the astronaust themselves, etc.?

  4. jjrackman asks if the book has provoked any reaction from NASA. An Amazon reviewer named Ali Fant seems to think so -- and what's more, it had an effect a full year before it was even published. Fant wrote:
    "Hoagland's book is having an effect on NASA today. Last year, NASA engineers suddenly "found" high-quality TV recordings of the Apollo 11 mission in Australia".

    Pretty good, huh? LOL.

  5. Yo looksupalot,

    Why does it have the shape of that well known old grainy 'photo' of Bigfoot ?

    It doesn't. I did a side-by-side in MS Paint. Not even close.

    The Mars object looks like possibly a figurine of some kind. This speculation is reinforced by the context as pointed out by J. P. Skipper on his website.

    Moreover, there appears to be a "fallen" matching figure on the ground just beyond and to the right of the still-upright figure. The two together remind me of a pair of French figurines my parents had, which were posed almost identically.

    However, the lack of "hand detail" would suggest Japanese workmanship.
    (The "hands" on genuine French wine flask figurines are far more lifelike. Ask any good antique dealer.)

    Martian impressionism? :-))


  6. One more word, if I may, on the
    Mars figure (or figurine, more

    The "usual suspects" in the space
    media are once again affirming that
    the figure is "just a rock."

    Well, maybe they're *half* right.
    It appears to me to be a ceramic,
    and...well, I guess you could call
    that a "rock."

    This thing, whatever it is, appears
    to have been "fired" in a kiln. It is
    a work of art.

    The glazing is excellent. At this
    level of resolution, no flaws are

    Incidentally, as I notice that no one
    has mentioned any of this, the leg,
    foot, footwear, and base detail are
    outstanding. Even the folds of the
    clothing have a natural look to them,
    and are completely consistent with
    such forms of art.

    The proportioning of the figure is
    essentially perfect. The hair color
    is complementary to the color of the
    clothing. The figure appears to be
    a woman, and is posed in a feminine

    Both legs of the figure are fully
    visible. The figure is seated on
    some sort of ottoman or stool, or
    perhaps something like a tree stump.
    The left-right leg and foot symmetry
    is perfect.

    The paintwork also is marvellous.
    There was considerable attention to

    Finally, the pose is commensurate
    with allusion to a partner figure,
    such as the one in evidence just
    below the ledge, to the right. It
    also shows clear evidence of being
    a ceramic figurine, as described
    above---finish, coloration, shape,

    The opposing figure appears to be,
    or to represent, a male companion,
    and what little is visible suggests
    a complementary pose.

    These two figures are amazingly like
    terrestrial figurines, and are even
    posed similarly to sets I have seen
    in local antique shops. But...this set
    is on Mars.

    I highly discount the notion that
    this is mere "pareidolia." There
    are ENTIRELY too many significant
    details to note---when you know a
    thing or two about the requisite
    subject---namely, figurines.

    As anyone should know, the greater
    the *number* of significant details
    involved, the lower the likelihood
    that anything like "pareidolia" is

    Of course, all this is just my own
    opinion on the matter.


    P.S.: And how can I see all this "detail?"

    It's like photo-intelligence: you

  7. I know this is a little late in the ball game to post this---but when I saw the "figure" the first thing that came to my mind was the portico of the Temple of Athena Nike on the Acropolis. (Yep, seen it with my own eyes, and it's impressive)
    I don't know what that means...but the figure seemed almost "familiar" to me. Not in a past life thing...(ppfft) but in a "I've seen that somewhere before."
    It's cool whatever it is.
