Huge Alien Spaceship Discovered Vacuuming Water From Saturn's Inner Ring

Is Saturn's Innermost Moon Actually a parked Alien Spaceship, Resupplying itself with Water?



Be honest: What does this look like to you? A natural satellite, or an alien spaceship in orbit around Saturn?

When Astronomer Mark Showalter analyzed old Voyager 2 probe photos in 1990, he discovered something shocking: An enormous UFO parked in orbit around Saturn.

But wait, there's more: It is vacuuming in ice crystals from Saturn's innermost ring, just what you might expect a visiting starship to do.

Publicly, NASA says Pan is a small, saucer shaped moon approximately 20 miles across and 15 miles wide that orbits within the Encke Gap in Saturn's A Ring. In mythology, Pan was a shepherd. The small moon is a "ring shepherd," responsible for keeping a gap between rings free of ring particles.

If it quacks like a duck and walks like a duck, it's a duck. This "moon" does exactly what you would expect a large UFO from another galaxy to do. It is resupplying itself with water, using the most obvious and easiest to access a source. And it looks like, well, you tell me.

A nuclear submarine can remain submerged for months because it splits hydrogen from oxygen in water, burning the hydrogen as fuel and breathing the oxygen. A spaceship could do the same, as long as it had a source of water.

This is not the first time a small moon in our solar system has been theorized to actually be a large spaceship. In the late 1950s and 1960s, the unusual orbital characteristics of Martian moon Phobos led to speculations that it might be hollow.

Around 1958, Russian astrophysicist Iosif Shklovsky, studying the secular acceleration of Phobos's orbital motion, suggested a "thin sheet metal" structure for Phobos, a suggestion which led to speculations that Phobos was of artificial origin. That it was in fact, an alien spaceship.

Shklovsky based his analysis on estimates of the upper Martian atmosphere's density, and deduced that for the weak braking effect to be able to account for the secular acceleration, Phobos had to be very light-one calculation yielded a hollow iron sphere 16 kilometers (9.9 mi) across but less than 6 cm thick.

Like a spaceship from Earth built by Nasa, Phobos and Pan are apparently both make from the alien equivalent of sheet metal--perhaps titanium hulls.

In a February 1960 letter to the journal Astronautics, Fred Singer, then science advisor to U.S. President Dwight D. Eisenhower, said of Shklovsky's theory:

If the satellite is indeed spiraling inward as deduced from astronomical observation, then there is little alternative to the hypothesis that it is hollow and therefore Martian made. The big 'if' lies in the astronomical observations; they may well be in error. Since they are based on several independent sets of measurements taken decades apart by different observers with different instruments, systematic errors may have influenced them.

The alien's may actually have parked their ship around Saturn prior to 1985. These are clearly beings who can manipulate not just space, but also time, because the two are linked through Einstein's famous equation.


Is Pan, like Phobos, a discarded UFO-- an ancient alien spacecraft? From NASA, the people who brought you (and then denied) the Face on Mars, comes a new enigma: The Flying Saucer orbiting Saturn.

In 1986 Showalter et al. inferred its orbit and mass by modeling its gravitational wake. They arrived at a very precise prediction of 133,603 ± 10 km for the semi-major axis and a mass of 5–10×10−12 Saturn masses, and inferred that there was only a single moon within the Encke gap. The actual semi-major axis differs by 19 km and the actual mass is 8.6×10−12 of Saturn's.

The moon was later found within 1° of the predicted position. The search was undertaken by considering all Voyager 2 images and using a computer calculation to predict whether the moon would be visible under sufficiently favorable conditions in each one. Every qualifying Voyager 2 image with resolution better than ~50 km/pixel shows Pan clearly. In all, it appears in eleven Voyager 2 images.

Did NASA hide Pan's discovery from us long enough to understand its true origin? What does Pan portend for our future? Did its crew die before the resupply was complete, or are they in suspended animation? Only further study will likely answer these and other questions.
