Many of the speakers addressed the issue of UFOs and extraterrestrial visitation, and discussed transformative aspects of this phenomenon. Crowd favorites included Dr Nick Begich’s discussion on mind control; Dr Brook Agnew’s discussion of the Inner Earth; James Gilliland’s presentation on benevolent extraterrestrial contact; and Angelika Whitecliff’s presentation on Dolphins, Starseeds and ‘human celestial visitors’. Judging by the quality of conference presentations and the enthusiastic audience response, the conference was highly successful.
As more modern conveniences such as
air-conditioning, insulation, etc., are added to the newly completed
conference auditorium, it can be anticipated that there will be many
more successful conferences/events at Sattva Sanctuary.
James Gilliland’s Sattva Sanctuary
offers a number of unique opportunities for communications and
interactions between private citizens and extraterrestrial
civilizations that can occur in remote, ‘protected’ locations. Sattva Sanctuary offers a model for ‘Galactic Peace Sanctuaries’ in
similar remote areas where extraterrestrial visitation is sustained
and observable, and where individuals can visit and spend time in a
There were also photos taken of metallic
looking objects in the vicinity of Mt Adams that did not appear to
be planes of any kind, and were independently photographed after the
conference, on August 22, by two participants not aware of each
other while staying at Sattva Sanctuary. I will subsequently discuss
the numerous photographs of ‘orbs’ taken at the conference that
would regularly appear or disappear in particular locations, and
were independently photographed at the conference.
Finally, I will discuss the implications
of this evidence accumulated at the ECETI conference helping confirm
that extraterrestrials are visiting/monitoring Sattva Sanctuary and
the immediate vicinity. The closing discussion will specifically
address the establishment of Galactic Peace Sanctuaries in other
locations equally suitable for this level of human/extraterrestrial
Many of the sightings were luminous
objects that would cross over portions of the night sky and were
seen by multiple witnesses. Using a laser pointer, these luminous
objects were often pointed out by James Gilliland. He and others
deduced these objects to be UFOs since they behaved in way that
excluded conventional explanations such as satellites, airplanes,
planets or ‘ball lightning’.
The most spectacular phenomenon
associated with these objects was that at different times some of
these would rapidly grow in magnitude and become very luminous,
before diminishing or fading out completely. James Gilliland
described this phenomenon as UFO's 'powering up', and it was claimed
that this was a message being sent by the UFOs that were
This powering up phenomenon would occur anywhere from 20 seconds to two minutes.
brightest has a magnitude of +2.9)
The spontaneous nature of the observations and the lack of a scientific protocol in studying the phenomena during the sky watching led to diverging reports on what occurred at the conference in terms of possible UFO sightings. This article reflects solely what I directly witnessed and/or Angelika Whitecliff photographed at the event, and of my own analyses of the data as being UFO phenomena.
There is a need for a scientific
protocol to be developed for the night sky observations for future
conferences at Sattva Sanctuary in order to better evaluate the
phenomena that are observed and verified by multiple witnesses, and
to distinguish them from satellites and other conventional objects.
However, when it flares its magnitude
can increase to -8.0 which is 50 times brighter than Venus at its
peak illumination of -4.9. The Iridium satellites flare from 5-20
seconds. This means that to the naked eye, most individuals would
see a very dim or barely visible object suddenly brighting up before
dimming once again (for more info go
While Angelika Whitecliff did not take any photos of the luminous objects powering up during the conference itself, she did manage to get some shots of one luminous object that traversed the sky on our last evening at Sattva Sanctuary on August 29. This object appeared at approximately 9 pm, moved from due West to East, and was visible for about 90 seconds.
It was approximately as bright as the star Sirius (magnitude -1.4) when first observed about 30º above the western horizon. It then powered up surpassing the brightness of Venus (-4.4) to what I estimate to be -7 magnitude. It held that intensity for the rest of its journey to about 30º above the eastern horizon before dissolving until it disappeared.
Fortunately, we were able to take a series of four camera shots clearly depicting the luminous object as it traversed the sky (photos below) displaying definite spherical characteristics rather than elliptical, thereby ruling out an Iridium satellite or a bright planet. Furthermore, the pink color contrasts with the white light reflected by Iridium satellites in available photographs.
This object was seen by five witnesses in total including myself.
The behavior and characteristics of the
luminous object Angelika Whitecliff photographed was identical to
the luminous objects that ‘powered up’ during the conference and on
other nights we were present.
Consequently, it does appear that what
was observed at the Sattva Sanctuary were genuine anomalous
phenomenon that qualify as UFOs under intelligent control.
Furthermore, the ‘power up’ had a
tangible emotional effect on those observing them, in terms of
states of elation and euphoria. Some described this in terms of
receiving ‘energy downloads’. While the evidence for ‘energy
downloads’ is anecdotal, it should nevertheless be considered for a
more detailed study of the ‘powering up’ phenomenon.
Using a suitable satellite tracking
system such as
all satellites can be known in advance and thereby distinguished
from genuine anomalous phenomena based on known satellite
trajectories, brightness, speed and behavior. This will ensure a
more rigorous reporting process for the UFO phenomenon observed at Sattva sanctuary.
A close up shows what appears to be a saucer shaped object and not an airplane.
The second set of photos were taken by one of the conference presenters, Angelika Whitecliff who captured what appears to be up to four metallic looking objects flying in the vicinity of Mt Adams.
Her photos were again taken on August 22 using a digital camera and she recorded between one to four of the objects in a series of photos. Two of the photos featuring three and four objects are reproduced below with close ups of each object pointed out by the blue arrows.
Significantly, neither photographer visually saw anything in the sky, and merely felt compelled to take a photograph of the general area around Mt Adams. This would rule out conventional explanations such as planes or birds.
This indicates that there may be regular UFO activity around Mt Adams occurring outside of the bands of the electromagnetic spectrum seen by the human eye, but that can be captured by an ordinary camera.
The fact that anomalous objects were
independently photographed on the same day immediately after the ECETI conference, and did not appear to be any conventional object,
suggests regular UFO activity is occurring in the vicinity of Mt
What follows are successive photographs of me during the sky watching experience taken by Angelika Whitelciff, where orbs appear and disappear. In the first pair, orbs appear to be moving in a number of directions, and disappear altogether in the second photo aside from a partial orb in the top left.
In this second pair of successive photos, one of the orbs in the first photo is particularly bright but disappears altogether in the second while another orb appears to be moving away.
None of the orbs captured in the photographs were seen visually. This suggests that orbs lie outside of the normal electromagnetic spectrum used by the human eye.
ability of orbs to quickly appear and disappear suggests that they
may be monitoring devices under intelligent control. The fact that
orbs were present while we were skywatching for UFOs suggests again
that anomalous phenomena occur regularly at Sattva Sanctuary, and
that these may be associated with UFOs.
Sanctuaries were well established in
ancient Egypt, Greece, Israel and also in more remote locations such
as the Hawaiian Islands.
With its remote location and recognition
by local leaders of its benefits in bringing together rivals and
resolving conflicts, Delphi flourished for centuries as a protected
If a Hawaiian even unintentionally broke kapu by stepping on the King’s shadow or eating with females, they were punished by death. However, if an individual was able to swim across the nearby bay and enter the secluded sanctuary, they were absolved of all wrong doing by the resident kahuna (‘Hawaiian priest’).
For centuries, the sanctuary at Honaunau
provided Hawaiians with a protected sacred space where the harsh
kapu legal code did not extend.
Principles grounded in religious
traditions or spiritual practices such as peace (Eirene), love
(aloha), nonviolence (ahimsa), etc., held sway in ancient
sanctuaries. Modern western societies has witnessed the erosion of
sanctuaries immune to the power of the modern state. In the modern
age, sanctuaries are largely confined to the inner sanctum of
churches and monasteries.
The repression of individuals and
organizations involved with extraterrestrial contact is exemplified
in numerous cases of intimidation, harassment, physical assault or
worse. Consequently, there is need for a sanctuary as a sacred space
providing protection to individuals interacting or communicating
with extraterrestrials. This is especially important given the
possibility that new technologies or energy sources inspired by or
given by extraterrestrials are developed and incorporated into human
It is therefore not unjustified optimism
to believe that enforcers of the national security system will
recognize the special status of Sattva Sanctuary. The national
security system has invoked a covert series of regulations dealing
with extraterrestrial contact, technology and information. The
penalties can be draconian but Sattva Sanctuary offers a means for
circumventing this through its role as a Galactic Peace Sanctuary.
The orbs that Angelika Whitecliff and
others independently photographed provided further evidence that
anomalous phenomena were occurring at Sattva Sanctuary in a way that
was verifiable by multiple witnesses. I look forward to future
journeys to Sattva Sanctuary to better investigate the UFO
phenomenon regularly occurring there, and better substantiate the
veracity of the UFOs powering up and possibly communicating.
