20KM High & 200KM Thick: The Most Perplexing ‘Mountain Range’ In Our Solar System

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    A huge mountainous ridge measuring up to 20 kilometres tall, twice the size of Everest, and approximately 200 kilometres thick can be seen running exactly along the equator of Ipateaus for well over three-quarters of the moon's entire circumference.

  • Reflect On:

    Why do so many employees from space programs and researchers believe that our solar system is full of artificially made structures? This should no longer be taboo.

Our solar system is fascinating, to say the least, and there is still so much we don’t know about it. What makes one even more curious is knowing the organizations and people who operate at the highest levels of ‘security clearances’ probably know a whole lot more. That being said, if you’re independently curious, there are more than enough resources available to satisfy your curiosity, you will find a way to investigate. At the very least you could get access to the best telescope you have and stare at the other planets, our Moon, and the Moons of other planets.

Perhaps the best thing to do is simply sift through the literature and you will find no shortage of strange anomalies that have been discovered in space -there’s truly no shortage. It’s also likely you will come across the tremendous amounts of controversy that come with these discoveries as well. Strange findings have been subject to ridicule within the mainstream, but that hasn’t stopped hundreds, if not thousands, of researchers and insiders from all backgrounds from continuing their study and education.

The Face On Mars Example

The Face on Mars is a good example of anomalies and ridicule. It has been the subject of several published papers that clearly show a high chance of artificial construction. Carl Sagan was even accused by his colleague, physicist and NASA astronaut Dr. Brian O’Leary for covering up the fact that ‘they’ knew the Face on Mars was artificial.

Today, it’s a much different story, and it appears that there is no doubt that life once flourished on Mars prior to the massive climate shift which occurred there that made it what it is today. Not many people know that Mars was once very Earth-like, with vast oceans, mountain ranges and greenery. Little did we know that there may have been a very intelligent civilization there, and still might be, perhaps within in.

A paper published in the Jornal Scientific Exploration was one of the latest to examine the Cydonia region on Mars. As the authors point out, “it validates the earlier measurements obtained using the lower resolution NASA Viking images, which hinted strongly at artificial surface interventions.” The key word there is artificial surface interventions. There are pyramids and faces on Mars, similar and in some cases, larger than those found here on planet Earth. I’ve written about that in detail, providing numerous sources that can be found in the articles linked below.

Our Own Moon

Then we have the Moon, which has also been the subject of recent peer-reviewed research. On more than one occasion, researchers have found what appears to be strange, and large, artificial structures on the back side of the Moon, the side we can never see unless we send probes and astronauts around it. To compliment all of the information regarding the Moon, we have statements from a number of credible sources in the form of witness testimony, from high ranking intelligence and military people etc. It’s safe to say that something strange is happening on the Moon. I do believe we went there, but I also believe what we were shown and told was heavily sanitized. Let’s not forget about Buzz Aldrin being so outspoken about a “Monolyth on the (one of the) moon of Mars.”

You can read more in detail about that in the articles linked below.

Iapetus, Perhaps The Most Puzzling

Which brings me to the topic of this article, Iapetus, one of Saturn’s moons. What’s unique about it is the fact that it has what appears to be a huge mountainous ridge that measures up to 20 kilometres tall, twice the size of Everest, and approximately 200 kilometres thick. It can be seen running exactly along the equator for well over three-quarters of the moon’s entire circumference, but it’s safe to assume around the entire planet. It was discovered in 2004, early in the Cassini mission.

First, let me set the stage. Iapetus is bizarre in a lot of ways. It has a yin-yang surface of dark and bright material. It is unexpectedly flat pole-to-pole. It seems to have an excessive number of large impact basins. And it has a mountainous ridge, up to 20 kilometres tall, running exactly along its equator for well over three-quarters of its entire circumference. The existence of this ridge was revealed very early in the Cassini mission, in an encounter at the end of 2004. – Jim Mars, Our Occulted History

The ‘ridge’ on Iapetus.

A number of prominent researchers and scientists have hypothesized that our own Moon is artificial in nature (read more about that in the links provided above), as so they have done with other Moons, like Iapetus. That being said, we don’t hear much about these theories & the credibility of the people behind them. They’re completely ignored by the mainstream simply because they don’t fit within the mainstream narrative which is nothing more than a theory in itself.

When talking about Saturn in general, Norman Bergrun comes to mind. Dr. Bergrun has worked for Ames Research Laboratory, NACA (National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics), and Lockheed Missiles and Space Company, now known as Lockheed Martin. He then went on to found Bergrun Engineering and Research. You can view some of his publications for NASA, where he worked for more than a decade, here. He states that something extraterrestrial could be creating the rings of Saturn in an interesting interview with Project Camelot.

In the interview, he also reveals images he has seen regarding the Moon landings and an extraterrestrial presence. He referred to them as tall black people, very dark.

Moving back to Iapetus, Jim Mars points out in his Our Occulted History that it’s one of the moons of Saturn that’s considered by many researchers to be artificial. He writes:

Iapetus the planet’s thrid largest moon, has puzzled researchers since its discovery by Italian astronomer Giovaccini Domenico Cassini in 1671. Like our own moon, Iapetus is in a near perfect circular orbit and one side always faces its planetary host. But even more pubblin are suare and hexagonal ctaters that, according to one former NASA employee, appear to be gigantic artifical plantes holding the moon together, maaking Iapetus resemble nothing so much as the Death Star in George Lucas’s film Star Wars.

The point is, no one can adequately explain this huge, and what appears to be the tallest mountain range in our entire Solar System, as far as we know. It’s impossible to hypothesize exactly how it was formed and why it’s confined, exactly, to the equator. The cause of the moon’s unusual inclined orbital plane is also completely unknown. This is the common theme you will find among planetary scientists regarding these pictures.

Here’s what Bergrun published about Ipateus.

You can go on to read more here. He was adamant late in his life about getting the truth out regarding extraterrestrial ‘things’ happening around Saturn and its moons.

Authors Tobias Owen and Donald Goldsmith hypothesized that “The unusual moon is the only object in the solar system which we might seriously regard as an alien signpost…a natural object deliberately modified by an advanced civilization to attract our attention.”

The same has been hypothesized, again, about our own Moon as Carl Sagan once pointed out:

It is not out of the question that artifacts of these visits still exist, or even that some kind of base is maintained (possibly automatically) within the solar system to provide continuity for successive expeditions. Because of weathering and the possibility of detection and interference by the inhabitants of the Earth, it would be preferable not to erect such a base on the Earth’s surface. The Moon seems one reasonable alternative. Forthcoming high resolution photographic reconnaissance of the Moon from space vehicles – particularly of the back side – might bear these possibilities in mind. (source)

The Deputy Manager for the 95 Clementine Mission to the Moon said it was really a reconnaissance mission to check out the bases on the back side of the Moon (Brandenburg, linked in Moon articles above).  In 1962 NASA scientist Gordon MacDonald published a paper stating it’s more likely that the moon is hollow than not. MIT’s Sean C. Solomon furthered this statement citing knowledge of the moon’s gravitation field as evidence for the assertion.

So yes, strange things seem to be going on in our solar system, especially with moons. The name Iapetus is interesting, I often wonder about Greek mythology, and other areas like anthropology, and how much information has been kept from us. Things are clearly not as we’ve been told. If we ever openly go to these places in our solar system we could all imagine jaw-dropping discoveries would be made. Perhaps the black budget world already has made some, perhaps we’re not even allowed up!

The Takeaway

Anytime I write about anything extraterrestrial, it’s always to encourage others to think about the implications of contact or the realization that we are not alone, and have never been alone. The extraterrestrial hypothesis as an explanation of the UFO phenomenon is valid for many reasons, because it’s the one that seems to hold the most evidence.

At the end of the day, our planet and its well-being is what we really need to focus on, and perhaps looking at Earth from an extraterrestrial perspective ourselves, if we could all beam up in spaceships, would perhaps change the way we look at the planet and ourselves as a human race. Perhaps this greater realization may contribute to a big change in perspective that we need right now in order to change our world. Who knows. the implications touch all aspects of humanity.

The US recently released its highly anticipated Pentagon UAP report, but it wasn’t much more than a 9 page rundown of what has been known for decades. Regardless, for many, what was promising was that the UFO subject was being taken seriously again – and perhaps many more scientists might get involved.

For decades many have been warning about leaving UFO disclosure in the hands of a government that likes to use crisis’ or current events to expand its defense budgets. Further, why would we suddenly expect a government, who has been lying about this subject for 70 years, to suddenly come forth with the truth? What would inspire them to suddenly change their mind?

Perhaps it’s because the search for ET is an idea who’s time has truly come. We’ve reporting on this for over 13 years, and are mongst a community of researchers who have been encouraging humanity to look at the evidence for more than 70 years. It feels like an idea that human collective consciousness is more than ready to explore.

The impact the ET question has on our individual and collective worldview has the power to truly change the way we view ourselves and the meaning of life here on earth. Think of the implications answers to this question could have on how we set up and run our society as well. Technology, culture, collaboration etc – I spoke about this more in great detail in my extended interview for Greer’s. prior film Close Encounters of The Fifth Kind here.

Now, a new documentary from Dr. Steven Greer, directed by my good friend Michael Mazzola, seeks to explore what the films calls “the current government and media disinformation campaign promoting 3 big lies:”

1. We do not know what these UAPs/ UFOs are. WE DO.
2. Humans cannot make craft that can maneuver like UFOs. WE CAN and WE DO.
3. The UFOs are a threat. THEY ARE NOT.

Bold statements. Watch the film below and see what resonates most with you.

Pentagon UFO Report: Explanations Fall Into One of Five Categories. Aliens Not Ruled Out

So is it aliens? The long awaited Pentagon UFO report is here, and the executive summary alone gives insight into the nature of this report from US Intelligence Communities.

The limited amount of high-quality reporting on unidentified aerial phenomena (UAP) hampers our ability to draw firm conclusions about the nature or intent of UAP. The Unidentified Aerial Phenomena Task Force (UAPTF) considered a range of information on UAP described in U.S. military and IC (Intelligence Community) reporting, but because the reporting lacked sufficient specificity, ultimately recognized that a unique, tailored reporting process was required to provide sufficient data for analysis of UAP events.

Essentially, the report aims to acknowledge 16 years of this phenomenon, while leaving out the 70 years it has been studying this phenomenon.

Still, as per the report, the U.S. government can’t explain 143 of the 144 cases of unidentified flying objects reported by their own military planes.

It acknowledges that “a handful of UAP appear to demonstrate advanced technology.”

In 18 incidents, described in 21 reports, observers reported unusual UAP movement patterns or flight characteristics. Some UAP appeared to remain stationary in winds aloft, move against the wind, maneuver abruptly, or move at considerable speed, without discernible means of propulsion. In a small number of cases, military aircraft systems processed radio frequency (RF) energy associated with UAP sightings.

The UAPTF holds a small amount of data that appear to show UAP demonstrating acceleration or a degree of signature management. Additional rigorous analysis are necessary by multiple teams or groups of technical experts to determine the nature and validity of these data. We are conducting further analysis to determine if breakthrough technologies were demonstrated.

It goes on to drop the last 16 years of measuring this phenomenon into 5 key categories, non of which mention non human intelligent life, but that is technically a bin for it.

The five categories are,

Airborne Clutter: These objects include birds, balloons, recreational unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV), or airborne debris like plastic bags that muddle a scene and affect an operator’s ability to identify true targets, such as enemy aircraft. Natural

Atmospheric Phenomena: Natural atmospheric phenomena includes ice crystals, moisture, and thermal fluctuations that may register on some infrared and radar systems.

USG or Industry Developmental Programs: Some UAP observations could be attributable to developments and classified programs by U.S. entities. We were unable to confirm, however, that these systems accounted for any of the UAP reports we collected.

Foreign Adversary Systems: Some UAP may be technologies deployed by China, Russia, another nation, or a non-governmental entity. UNCLASSIFIED 6 UNCLASSIFIED

Other: Although most of the UAP described in our dataset probably remain unidentified due to limited data or challenges to collection processing or analysis, we may require additional scientific knowledge to successfully collect on, analyze and characterize some of them. We would group such objects in this category pending scientific advances that allowed us to better understand them. The UAPTF intends to focus additional analysis on the small number of cases where a UAP appeared to display unusual flight characteristics or signature management.

The report does state, rather predictably, that some observations could be the result of sensor errors, spoofing, or observer misperception and require additional rigorous analysis.

As expected, they are claiming that “UAP clearly pose a safety of flight issue and may pose a challenge to U.S. national security.” What’s odd about this statement is that this phenomenon has been known about for 70 years, yet not a single aviation incident has occurred that anyone knows of, so why are they a threat to flight all of a sudden?

Further, one could expect “a threat to nation security” would be mentioned  for two reasons: on a political level this means more attention will be paid to the issue, and there has long been political leverage gained from presenting certain global events as a threat to ‘get other things done.’

In this case, the report makes mention of foreign adversary threats should these incidences fall under that category, claiming these could be breakthrough or disruptive technology.

The report contends that further scientific analysis and more focused measurement apparatus would be required to answer some of the unanswered questions surrounding ‘the few’ instances where UAP performed ‘impossible’ maneuvers.

There is likely a classified version of this report that would be in much greater detail. The question is why after 70 years is the public still in the dark?

Perhaps the takeaway here is that although this is essentially a repeat of Project Blue Book of the 50s and 60s, we are now in a time where it’s being talked about again. Further, we are in an age where information spreads a lot faster and a lot further then back then. Perhaps that will be the kicker this time around.

We’ll have more detailed coverage throughout the day and into tomorrow.

The long awaited Pentagon UFO report is set to be released from the U.S. Intelligence Community. Some of those waiting expect a moment of acknowledgment, but perhaps nothing all that new, while others are hoping for a much deeper admission of non-human intelligent life. Time will tell.

In the wake, Senator Marco Rubio has issued the following statement:

Rubio Statement on UAP Report

Miami, FL — Senate Select Committee on Intelligence Vice Chairman Marco Rubio (R-FL) released a statement on the unclassified report on unidentified aerial phenomena (UAP) issued by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI).

“For years, the men and women we trust to defend our country reported encounters with unidentified aircraft that had superior capabilities, and for years their concerns were often ignored and ridiculed,” Rubio said. “This report is an important first step in cataloging these incidents, but it is just a first step. The Defense Department and Intelligence Community have a lot of work to do before we can actually understand whether these aerial threats present a serious national security concern.”

In 2020, Rubio, as Acting Chairman of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, included report language in the Intelligence Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2021 directing ODNI to submit a report to congressional intelligence and armed services committees on unidentified aerial phenomena.

We’ll have full coverage of the what’s in the report later today, if the report is released, and of course in the coming days as it will inevitably require much analysis and discussion. Sign up to our email list and follow us on Twitter for more to come.
