Mars Curiosity Rover yesterday uncovered yet more compelling evidence of life on Mars – with a strange rock formation which looks eerily like an 18th Century naval cannon.
The intriguing discovery comes in the wake of several sightings spotted in Curiosity’s photo stream by ‘enthusiasts’ – which appear to show a traffic light, football and a kestrel on Mars. The terrifying evidence is pictured below.
While HG Wells has little to say on the subject of kestrels, he seems to have predicted the discovery of guns on Mars in the chilling prologue to War of the Worlds, where he speaks of a ‘huge gun, from which their projectiles were fired at us.’
While the identification seems closest to being a gun emplacement, the simple fact is that the object does not appear to be anything which can occur naturally on a planet assumed to be forever without life
Martian kestrel attack
UFO enthusiast site UFO-Blogger said of the kestrel-like bird pictured hovering above Mars’s surface, ‘This is an actual object in 3 dimensions out there in the background. Look at the shading around its edges.
‘The shading gets lighter at the edges indicating this is a real object out there with sun light reflecting more on its top than on its bottom.’
Or it could just be a dot. Scientists have yet to clarify the origin of this new mystery of the Red Planet.

FRISCO (CSBDFW.COM) - First responders have transported a Dallas County Sheriff’s deputy to Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital to be monitored as a possible second case of Ebola.
The patient, Michael Monnig, was transported from a Frisco Care Now facility where he was complaining of “stomach issues,” according to sources.
According to CBS 11’s Andrea Lucia, Monnig’s children said he woke up this morning feeling sore and a little nauseated. He went to clinic as a precaution.
“We were told by federal officials, county officials that you would have to come in direct contact with Duncan or direct contact with bodily fluids, and he did not,” said Monnig’s son, Logan about the possibility of his dad contracting Ebola.
Monning was not one of the 48 people being monitored by federal, state and local health officials because he never had direct contact with the patient. Monnig did enter the apartment where Duncan stayed after Duncan had been admitted to the hospital.
“He was in the apartment for 30 minutes, which we were told is no chance to contact the virus,” said Logan.
First responders transported Monnig from the Care Now located at 301 W. Main Street in Frisco. The clinic reported that he was “exhibiting signs and symptoms of Ebola.”
CBS 11 has confirmed with Care Now that the facility is in contact with the Centers for Disease Control and is holding everyone in the facility until receiving clearance from the CDC. The patient has been transported to Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital by Frisco firefighter-paramedics, the same hospital where Duncan, the first patient to be diagnosed with the virus on American soil, was admitted. Duncan died earlier today, after spending more than 10 days in isolation at that hospital.
Texas Health Presbyterian Dallas confirmed the patient’s arrival to the Emergency Room in statement, which reads in part, “Right now, there are more questions than answers about this case. Our professional staff of nurses and doctors is prepared to examine the patient, discuss any findings with appropriate agencies and officials. We are on alert with precautions and systems in place.” The hospital is still admitting and caring for other patients at this time.
The Dallas County Sheriff’s Office said the deputy “expressed concern and we directed that deputy to the Dallas County Health & Human Services for care.”
Meanwhile, first responders are also examining clinical staff and other patients at the Care Now facility....

He threatened the lives of his own family and even this nation by coming here when he thought he might be infected.
Obama and the Libs were trying to politicize this --however--this death now changes the entire argument.
Ebola IS dangerous and it IS easy to catch~ unless all those bio-hazard suits they're wearing in West Africa are just a radically new fashion statement......The question now becomes whether or not this man infected anyone else in the US?
Ebola patient Thomas Eric Duncan, a Liberian national, died Wednesday, confirmed Texas Health Presbyterian.
According to a hospital statement, Duncan died at 7:51 a.m. on Wednesday morning.
“Mr. Duncan succumbed to an insidious disease, Ebola. He fought courageously in this battle. Our professionals, the doctors and nurses in the unit, as well as the entire Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas community, are also grieving his passing. We have offered the family our support and condolences at this difficult time,” the statement read.
Duncan was the first person diagnosed with the deadly virus on U.S. soil, and had been given the experimental medication brincidofovir. A hospital in Nebraska said it is using the same drug to treat an American journalist who was airlifted from Liberia and arrived Monday.
He had been in critical condition and on a ventilator and a kidney dialysis before his death.
Duncan had been in isolation since Sept. 28.
Authorities in the United States and the public are on alert following Duncan's diagnosis more than a week ago, which raised concerns that the worst epidemic of Ebola on record could spread from three hardest-hit impoverished countries - Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia. Duncan, who arrived in Texas in late September on a commercial flight from Liberia, has been in critical condition since Saturday....

At a DNC fundraiser today, President Barack Obama voiced a concern many Americans might now have.
"[T]here’s a sense possibly that the world is spinning so fast and nobody is able to control it," Obama told Democrats at the White Street Restaurant in New York, New York.
But Obama suggested that he has things under control.
"There are times where I think in this country we doubt ourselves, and there are times when we're uncertain of all the changes that are taking place all across the globe.
And understandably, when you see the headlines every single day and you read about ISIS and Ebola and the Russian incursions into Ukraine, there’s a sense possibly that the world is spinning so fast and nobody is able to control it.
And yet if you look at what happened at the General Assembly on the terrorist group ISIS and the need to mobilize an international community to push back against their radical violence, it was the United States that mobilized that coalition both in the Middle East and around the world.
When you look at Ebola, a humanitarian crisis in West Africa, but also a public health crisis that has the possibility of affecting people around the world, it was the United States that is committed to building the infrastructure that allows health workers to get in and start saving lives and making sure that children aren't dying on the streets.
When it came to blunting Russian aggression, it was the United States that mobilized NATO countries and the world community to stand up for the principle that people are independent and have the ability to make their own decisions about their own lives and to seek freedom and prosperity on their own terms."

Tonight is the second and final Blood Moon of the Tetrad for 2014.
However, this Blood Moon will occur in the early morning hours just before the moon sets.
On Wednesday October 8, at about 6:25 am EST, the second Blood moon of the Tetrad will appear.
It will be the final Blood Moon for 2014; however, there are two more Blood Moons which will appear in 2015 completing the tetrad, one in April and the other in September. As stated numerous times before, this tetrad's appearance also marks the exact dates of major Jewish holidays, making it extraordinarily significant.
But, why is it significant?
Biblical scholars tell us that the tetrad has only appeared a few times in the past several hundred years. Not only that, but this particular tetrad heralds a time in which major events are unfolding across the planet.
So, what does it all mean?
Many believe that the lunar tetrad specifies a time of great change for Jews, while solar eclipses herald trouble or "change" for gentile nations.
The question is, does the lunar tetrad in conjunction with solar eclipses, among other heavenly signs, mean that something extraordinary is about to occur?
When we look at the significant confluence of events which have already occurred in 2014, it would seem that there may be more to these "signs" which we are given, than others would care to admit.
Below is more information on the event
From Farmers' Almanac
"For East Coasters, the total eclipse begins at 6:25 A.M. EDT; the Moon will be hanging low over the western horizon as the brightening dawn approaches, so only part of the eclipse may be seen before the Moon sets. The Moon may appear larger than usual, thanks to the “Moon Illusion."
In Central Time, the total eclipse starts at 5:25 A.M; in Mountain Time, it starts at 4:25 A.M.
For West Coasters, totality begins at 3:25 A.M. PDT (and ends at 4:24 A.M.). The viewing is the most favorable out West in the wee hours of darkness—and the Moon will be high in the sky."
From WQAD8 News: "The Earth will be directly between the sun and the full moon, making a total lunar eclipse visible before dawn Wednesday, October 8, 2014.
The eclipse will happen when the full moon passes directly through earth’s shadow.
“If you live in the Americas or Hawaii, the total eclipse happens before sunrise October 8,” according to earthsky.org. While the total part of the eclipse will last about an hour, the entire event will last more than three hours.
The night before the lunar eclipse, October 7–8, is the night of the Hunter’s Moon, which is the first full moon after the Harvest Moon. During a Hunter’s Moon, the time between moonrises is shorter than usual for several consecutive nights around the full moon, bringing bright moonlight from early evening until dawn on those nights.
This lunar eclipse is also dubbed a Blood Moon. That’s when there are four lunar eclipses in a row without a partial eclipse. This is called a lunar tetrad. This is the second Blood Moon with two more coming on April 4th and September 28th of 2015.
“During a lunar eclipse, the moon passes deep inside the shadow of our planet, a location that bathes the face of the moon in a coppery light,” according to information from NASA’s website.
NASA eclipse experts say some shades of turquoise might also be visible as you look at the moon during the eclipse. That color is especially visible in the first and last minutes of the total eclipse. Binoculars or a small telescope might help you view it."
