Gigantic Alien Craft Photographed By Cassini! NASA’s Cover-Up Blown?

At the outset, I would like to mention that the clearest photographs yet of gigantic alien spacecrafts published in the French newspaper L’actualite insolite had been posted earlier last year in my thread "Alien Objects Orbiting Saturn's Rings?" by balonO

Unfortunately, balonO’s post had been lost in the deep caverns of the thread and out of sight. Considering its importance, I thought it needed to be exhumed and discussed in a different thread as it deserves more attention than it has.

That said, this particular photograph is corroborated by another taken in the infra red spectrum by the Hubble Space Telescope of the gigantic object near Saturn, and posted on another thread of mine here. This pic is reproduced below:

Huge cigar shaped object clearly shown following a definite path in an orbit  along the edge of Saturn’s  ring.

Now for the photograph in the French news paper which is similar to the one above, purportedly taken by Cassini near Saturn…..

It is in French, so what it basically says is that those objects are massive OVNIS (UFOs) photographed by Cassini near Saturn, and put under wraps by NASA. One of the objects is Earth sized and one over 50,000 Km in length (Four times Earth’s diameter!)

How did this French news paper get its hands on this photograph? Unfortunately, we don’t have more info on its authenticity. Can the photo experts here try and interpret it?

Keeping in mind the similarity with the HST’s infra red image shown above, it may be an actual photograph taken by Cassini. If genuine, the implications are mind boggling! Are we then seeing incontrovertible evidence of an alien presence in our Solar System? 

And another thing. Small moonlets/asteroids even a couple of hundred miles long have been mapped and named. These objects are Earth size and some more than 50,000 Km long. Then why have these objects not been named? After all, they’ve shown up in the official photographs taken by the HST. But then, that’s probably top secret! You can’t go around naming huge alien objects, can you? Smells of a cover-up, what?

Whatever, the truth is out there in the rings of Saturn!

Cheers! :D

New UFO Events in 1996 
by Richard J. Boylan, Ph.D. 

An abundance of leaks and disclosures pertaining to UFO reality are occurring this year. The following examples are but a sample of recent developments. 

1. On January 30, WRFX-FM, Charlotte, North Carolina featured an interview with a NASA scientist, Dr. Norman Bergrun. His book, The Ring-Makers of Saturn, reveals that NASA's Voyager I (1980) and II space-probes of Saturn's rings took photographs of an estimated 7000-mile-long elliptical (cigar-shaped) craft orbiting in the rings. ......

I didn't know that NASA's Voyager I and II took photographs of an estimated 7000-mile-long cigar shaped craft orbiting Saturn's rings! I wonder whether we'll ever get to see the photographs?

Very interesting pictures; they remind me of a similar object allegedly photographed by a Russian probe in the vicinity of one of the Marsian moons.  Whatever it is, it must be truly massive!

Originally posted by mikesingh
That's right! It was the Russian probe Phobos II that took the pic, immediately after which it stopped all transmissions. Was it destroyed by the alien object? Here's the pic...The similarity is striking!

And the preview of one of the objects near the sun:

Originally posted by jamesder  ATS Post ID3497247

If we're talking about the color photograph and not the infrared image, I have a questions:

1) Is there anything in the photo that indicates these objects are anywhere close to the rings of Saturn? I'm not sure there is? 

If you're taking a photo of something a great distance away at a certain exposure and something closer to the lens passes through your frame, the object is going to appear altered. If it's a space object following a trajectory, it will appear to be elongated as it has been exposed longer than it would if you were intending to specifically photograph that object.

For example:

If that's the case, it probably explains this straight little anomoly right here:

Also, if I'm correct about the elongated form due to overexposure and you look closely at the end of the object, it is fairly irregular looking.....and looks very much like an asteroid in shape and color. The "middle" section looks like the end stretched out and spinning a bit.

I think the photo would be infinitely more compelling if these objects were a shiny metallic/gun-metal color as is commonly cited in UFO reports.

The article of the french journal doesn't mentions just Bergrund.
It mentions even Walter Vincenti. If you search on NASA website plenty of results about him.
Anyway, I'll try to get some more info.

I have emailed Norm Bergrum this evening and asked permission to post the real picture of one of the ships in the rings (there are 3 ships). The photo is from Voyager and not Cassini.

I have asked permission to post Plate 5: Ellflux from along the length of the slender body, exhausting at both ends, generates the A-ring. That ship is 31,496 miles in length and 2,422 miles in diameter. The photo is on page 17 of the Ringmakers of Saturn by Norman R. Bergrun available from his website. I will also be making a CD of the Ringmakers of Saturn.

The picture shows the B-ring, the Cassini division, and the A-ring and where the ships is situated at the end of the A-ring.

Although I have not read the text of the French article it is probably a lot from Bergruns book.  The Cassini photo, of course, was fictitious, but the real ships are not.

I expect to hear from Norm by the morning and will post the Voyager photo then.

These pictures were taken with the Hubble telescope. Scientists stated that from these photos in sequence they have discovered new moons of Saturn. 

What wasn't explained was the objects that have been marked A, B and C orbiting Saturn's outer ring. These huge cigar shaped object's are clearly shown following a definite path in an orbit along the edge of the ring.

Take a look at this pic from Cassini. Notice the 'lense flare' on the elongated object? Or is it an elongated moon? Unlikely. And it couldn't be a timed exposure which has produced this effect. It's in 'real time'.

Speech patterns have been found in a ... Speech patterns have been found in a radio signal released by NASA almost 3 years previously in 2004.

Judge for yourself what the voices are saying, it is a very bizarre anomaly but very much worth investigating.

1) Download and save the original WAV file from NASA/Cassini website:

2)Open an audio editor like Cool Edit or Sonar and raise the pitch/frequency of the file by 12 tones with the pitch shifter..

and there it is, speech patterns.

How can anyone explain this anomaly. Certainly NASA have no explanation for it after we presented the file to them for their opinion. SETI also dont know what make of it. What do you think?

Now here's an unidentified object, as NASA has admitted (In the green square), orbiting the rings of Saturn!!

It's NOT a moon of Saturn. Notice its orbit which remains within the outer ring. 

Cheers! There's more where they came from! Keep your eyes peeled! :D

Well there have been observations for hundred of years one of which occured on the 9th February 1917.


Luminous phenomena in the vicinity of the rings have been observed repeatedly, and prove that electrostatic forces are at work. From the 18th Century onwards luminous points on the ring edge, luminous objects and the disappearance of one side of Saturn's rings have been observed. One astronomer (Maurice Ainslie) observed a luminous object pass through the rings and devour ring material as it moved. This object was a mass of ionizing radiation, which can destroy ring material. The rings are known to change in brightness, evidently due to time-varying particle flow. White spots where noted on the rings and the planet numerous times. Bright projections on the rings and "sparkling flocculence" where also observed. For example, a white projection was seen near a white spot at the edge of the south equatorial band on 29 September 1910. Voyager 1 took a photo of Saturn and five of its moons, which included an unexpected luminous object. Images of the F-ring show variable luminosity that includes observations of a helical core and emission jets

I emailed Norm Bergrun for permission to post the photo of the ship in the rings of Saturn as published in the book The Ringmakers of Saturn, the Pentland Press, Edinburgh, LOCCCN 86-81530, ISBN 0 946270 33 3.

Permission was denied.

In his fax to me this afternoon Norm (in part) said,


The two pages faxed to you (the French article) were sent to me from France in 1997. The diagram on the second page you will recognize as Plate 27 (RoS) which the French used without my permission. They also translated the book into French and tried to find a publisher. Never could find out whether they succeeded or not.

One post (ATS, “Gigantic Alien Craft Photographed by Cassini NASA’s Coverup Blown” says the following “I’m a little confused. Is the French article claiming that the photo with the three cigar shapes is real, or is that an illustration for their article?” The answer is: “The photo is a ‘kluged-up” image primarily based upon Ringmakers of Saturn Plate 27 page 50.”

Norm goes on to say that he has been trying to protect his intellectual property ever since the publication of Ringmakers of Saturn. He said “I suggest you post a blurb that tells where the French got their idea, refer them to <> and have them, on their Nav bar, click on the book back cover. The image shown is a latent image that was hidden in a NASA Voyager image because of a very dark background. Details and answers to other thread wonderments are disclosed in the RoS book.”

Norm closed by saying:

“Thank you for bringing the web item to my attention.

Best Regards,


I guess that I should have asked Norm for permission BEFORE I mentioned it on the thread.

Please accept my apologies for any inconvenience this has caused.

I know that many on this thread and other threads feel that it is ‘their right’ to know and view this information about their solar system not to mention the universe.

They feel that if someone has information that they should not be trying to ‘make a buck’ off it; that the information belongs to all of us.

That may be.

Or if they are trying to ‘make a buck’ off it the information is not really true.

There is no denying that this has certainly happened in the past and will continue to happen. It doesn’t mean this is true for everyone.

It certainly isn’t true for Norm Bergrun and the information presented in the Ringmakers of Saturn. And I am certain of that.

I try to share as much as I know about it despite the thousands of questions that I cannot answer, and most of it for which I cannot offer any proof.

I post what I think is true and you can take it or leave it. 

If the government had wanted you to know all of these things they would have told you. Nevertheless many search for the truth anyway.

And despite what one poster said, “John doesn’t really believe what he says”, I really do. At least the things that I post. I really believe there are at least several space stations in orbit about which we know nothing. I believe that we have been mining on the moon and Mars for many years.

I believe that space vehicles under the operational control of Air Force Space Command and other U.S. Government entities go back and forth to the moon every day with the same ease that a business jet flies from Vegas to Albuquerque. Or any other city.

I believe that at least some of these vehicles operate from normal runways and do not have to be launched by rockets.

But for reasons unknown to us this information has been kept secret since the late 1950’s. And will probably be kept secret for ever. I say ‘for ever’ because I see too many projects in place that will obscure what is really going on. For instance the current NASA moon project to go back there in 2020.

Are they kidding? No. Its all part of a gigantic and well organized coverup. And under no circumstances which includes disclosure, threats by Congress, request by the President will any of this ever become public knowledge.

A few weeks ago a few of us got together, me, Zorgon and a few others and we discussed how much we (the public) knew about government secret projects.

After some discussion we decided that on a scale of zero to a hundred, zero representing that we knew absolutely nothing, to one hundred which represented that we knew everything the government was doing that we knew between .5 to .8 of one.

Since I posted those figures several weeks ago I have come upon some additional information that would cause me to revise those figures. I would like to revise the scale to zero to one thousand. But I am still keeping the .5 to .8 of one to represent what we know. 

There are many that do not share my views and to those I can only say I understand. 

I can also say, “If you only knew.” :)

Indell, here's a very valid point brought out by Evasius.

It definitely looks like a huge artificial object that met its demise quickly.

so, a comet's tail always points in the direction opposite the direction of the sun from the comet.  If the comet were headed directly towards the sun, the comet tail would point straight back from the comet away from the sun.  With any other angle of movement of the comet, the tail still points away from the sun or solar wind. 

In this case the 'tail' of the object is parallel to the sun.

Secondly, Comets actually have two tails:  the dust tail and the gas or ion tail.  The 'pieces' breaking off from this object are themselves hundreds of miles long. A dust tail would not look like large pieces breaking off.

Thanks internos. Now the picture I wanted to post and was asking permission to do so by Mr, Bergrun was Plate 5 on page 17, Ringmakers of Saturn which shows the ship labeled "Vehicle III" in your post above.

It is a Voyager photo of Saturn's rings and Vehicle III is is at the end and perpendicular to the A-ring. And when I say 'end' of the A-ring, there is no more to the A-ring. Its as if (and this is what is proposed by Bergrun) that the ship is 'making' the A-ring.

Here are a couple more pics. Cassini snapped the photos on Feb. 23, 2004, from a distance of 62.9 million kilometers (39 million miles). Notice the two ELONGATED objects which I've marked 'A' and 'B'.

These have not been satisfactorily explained so far.

And what's this 'streak' across the rings?

"These following series images are  jpg files of the original news release images, and a comparison to the NASA /JPL image used in "Ringmakers of Saturn" by Dr. Norman Bergrun.  Following the images is the actual news release as published by NASA in 1981.  No comment need be made regarding them, as they pretty well speak for themselves, demonstrating the composed nature of the material." - Source

This is the ORIGINAL NASA/JPL image P-23876C composed from 4 Voyager 1 images.

The caption of the pic claims that Guy Tarade drew it, but now we know it isn't so (thanks to Jonh Lear for his efforts) and the copy he keeps in his left hand looks to have been copied by a book
(RMoS ?).

In according to what Bergrun wrote in response to John's request,  this guy may have (somehow) published the pics somewhere (I know it isn't so much, but is anyway a step).

The pic that John asked the permission to post, is not this:

but plate 5 on page 17.

Originally posted by Beachcoma

That's a nice picture. I've got the false colour composite of the same thing that makes it clearer, but it's in the other HDD which I've disconnected from the PC. But from that picture you can see that the streak is actually behind the rings. In false colour image, you would've instantly recognized it as Saturn itself, or rather, her outline. It looks that way because Cassini was capturing it at a very artistic angle, with the rings in the foreground and Saturn in silhouette behind it. Truly beautiful shot.

The ones above are the so called "shepherd moons" that seem to maintain the shape of Saturn's rings through their small gravitational influences. I forgot their names, but I'll try to look for it later, along with the colour composite.

Edit: Sorry my bad, the shepherd moons are within the rings, specifically within the gaps. Those things are either "transient clumps of dust" or little "icy moonlets". In other words they've no idea exactly what it is. However they've provisionally named it S/2004 S 3 and S/2004 S 6. It's probably what they say it is, but speculate away until they actually name it something more creative :D

Also, the 'known' shepherd moons and inner satellites:

Oh yeah, one more thing... Not exactly the colour composite I mentioned, but you can see the similarity. 

I found a wider-angle shot of the B&W above.

You can see the shadows cast by the ring-system on Saturn, and the bright band between the shadows is actually sunlight passing through one of the ring divisions.

In the Acknowledgments section of his book, the Ringmakers of Saturn, Norman has this to say:

"To Dr. Walter Vincenti, Professor of Aeronautics and Astronautics at Stanford University, special thanks are given for his valuable suggestions at the final phase of the manuscript." 


WALTER VINCENTI has had whole careers both as a cutting-edge aeronautical engineer and as a leading historian of technology. Looking back over them, he discusses what his dual vantage point has taught him about how technological innovation works.

This picture is what Norm Bergrun refers to as the photo that has been 'kluged up' (fabricated). It in no way resembles the photos that Norm used in the Ringmakers of Saturn.

internos, that was an amazing find if ever there was one! WOW! :up: :up:

There were some who said that the cylindrical shape of the object you posted was due to long exposure. It's not! If it is A to B in length, then a long exposure would have resulted in 'A' being 'stationary' and 'B' 'stretching' resulting in an [i]apparent[/i] increase in length over the exposure time. But THE OBJECT REMAINS THE SAME LENGTH THROUGHOUT ITS MOVEMENT.

Ron, I suggest you include interno's images in your web site in that Saturn chapter of mine! :D Needless to say, with due acknowledgment to internos, for his amazing find! We need more guys like him don't we? Not fellas who keep hollering, "Hey! I see nothing but stones!"

Compare both the images. Shades of George Lucas and his Star Wars saga!!

Needless to say, this is conjecture, until someone (Not NASA or ESA or other government agencies) goes there and has a closer inspection!

Now for the bombshell! 

"Scientists cannot explain all observed features... The current dilemma facing scientists is that Cassini is detecting extended objects like those pictured here." [See Below]

Have a nice day! :D

The Clump/Moon Mystery

September 5, 2005  Full-Res: PIA07716

Scientists have long suspected that small moons hiding among Saturn's ring strands might be producing some of the unusual structure observed in the F ring. While the shepherd moon Prometheus is the main culprit behind the strange behavior of Saturn's F ring, it cannot explain all observed features. The current dilemma facing scientists is that Cassini is detecting extended objects like those pictured here -- that may be either solid moons or just loose clumps of particles within the ring.

This montage of four enhanced Cassini narrow-angle camera images shows bright clump-like features at different locations within the F ring.

Two objects in particular, provisionally named S/2004 S3 and S/2004 S6, have been repeatedly observed by Cassini over the past 13.5 months and 8.5 months, respectively. The orbits for these two objects have not yet been precisely determined, in part because perturbations from other nearby moons make the orbits of objects in this region complicated. Thus, scientists cannot be completely confident at the present time if they in fact have observed new sightings of S3 and S6, or additional transient clumps.

The upper two images show features that may be S6. From previous observations, S6 appears to have an orbit that crosses that of the main F ring. This unexpected behavior currently is a subject of great interest to ring scientists.

The upper left image was taken on June 21, 2005, and shows an object in the outer ringlets of the F ring. The radial (or lengthwise) extent of the feature is approximately 2,000 kilometers (1,200 miles). The radial resolution on the ring is about 13 kilometers (8 miles) per pixel.

The image at the upper right was taken on June 29, 2005, and shows a bright feature within the F ring's inner ringlets. The radial extent of the feature seen here is about 2,000 kilometers (1,200 miles); the radial resolution is 36 kilometers (22 miles).

The image at the lower left was taken on August 2, 2005, and shows a feature that may be S3. S3 has been found to have an orbital path that is tightly aligned with that of the main F ring. The radial resolution in the image is 3.5 kilometers (2.2 miles) per pixel.

The lower right image was taken on April 13, 2005, and has a radial resolution of 7 kilometers (4 miles) per pixel. This object does not appear to be either S3 or S6.

Structures like knots and clumps within the F ring often are transient, appearing and then disappearing within months. Repeated observation of the objects seen in this region hopefully will give scientists firm evidence about whether these features are actual moons that disturb the material around them or perhaps the short-lived products of interactions between the F ring and larger moons such as Prometheus.

The Cassini-Huygens mission is a cooperative project of NASA, the European Space Agency and the Italian Space Agency. The Jet Propulsion Laboratory, a division of the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena, manages the mission for NASA's Science Mission Directorate, Washington, D.C. The Cassini orbiter and its two onboard cameras were designed, developed and assembled at JPL. The imaging operations center is based at the Space Science Institute in Boulder, Colo.

Here's a similar pic....

Looks like a gigantic light bulb, what?? :lol: Needless to say, it's gonna be passed off as some moon or asteroid in Saturn's orbit!! 

It does seem strange. Not only the missing pixels, but also the shape which is rather intriguing! Also the 'shadow' in its mid section is puzzling. Let's see what NASA said about it after calibration / validation. 

As per NASA, this image, N00061934, was taken on May 23, 2006 and received on Earth May 24, 2006. The camera they say, was pointing toward TETHYS at approximately 509,689 kilometers away. Hmmm...They seem to be way off the mark! Here’s what Tethys actually looks like..

NASA / JPL / J.Garrido

TETHYS, above. But the shiny 'light bulb' pic of the object is TETHYS according to NASA!!
And this is what the object looks like after embedding…

So what's going on here?

There are objects of many shapes, so far we limited our searches to the saturn area, and possibly to the rings. Of course, we cannot hope to find higly definited objects, due the big distances, and we have to distinguish between "apparently" cigar shaped objects and "actually" ones. This can be difficult sometimes, but in the case of the pic with whic the OP opened the thread, is clear that isn't an "effect due to the exposition".

For instance, it should be simple to debunk these ones: there is simply to say WHAT they are and, then, to PROVE it. :)

The resolution of that pic is a ordinary infrared pic of Saturn resolution from Hubble in that series

A moon IMHO, usually does not appear from nowhere and does not disappear to nowhere but i could be wrong (now i'll go to take a look at the ours one, to make sure it's still there). Edit: it's still there, a fourth crescent, better than nothing. :)

A rock, an asteroid, a comet IMHO shoud have hard time on following exactly the path of the F ring and then, without reason, change deliberately path in order to disappear to nowhere, but i could be wrong. 
Have you found later/previous time pics which shows the same objects?

I haven't. If you have, please post it here.

Of course these objects could be many things, I really agree with you on this point. What we are trying to find out is what they are (this is the reason we're gathering pics of Saturn which shows cylyndrical/cigar shaped objects) possibly basing our deductive reasoning on clues as i.e. NASA pics, instead of much-less-than-clues as i.e. chats .

No one has the proof to state that they are alien moterships:
No one has the proof to state that they are one of the options mentioned. 
If you got some proofs, feel free to provide it, no one will censore you.

What news?  Can I see a version of this pic that does NOT come from an "enhanced plate" in a single book?  It's a bold claim, and the picture is interesting.  I'd love to see the original.

The news is that many of us were searching for it (and something else) and finally we have found it (who has followed the thread will understand it). In your opinion could not be news, for us OF COURSE it is, also i called it so. :) Since I don't know all the long/odd background of the pic and is not my purpose to provide bad informations about it (despite some idiots could think so), I hope that John will accomplish this task, of course if he's available to. :)

The photo below labeled as an enhanced Plate 3 from the book Ringmakers of Saturn by Norman Bergrun would be using the word ‘enhanced’ to avoid a more correct word which would be ‘photoshopped’.

A lot of work has been done to obscure the original detail of the photos in the Ringmakers of Saturn from which sections of this photoshopped composite were obviously taken.

I have labeled some of the original printing and also noted some of the obvious photoshopping in yellow.

Below is a photo of the real plate 3 (page 15) Ringmakers of Saturn by Norman Bergrun.

As you can see the photo at the top of this post could not be an ‘enhanced’ photo because none of the labeling matches and Normans signature has been photoshopped into the photo.

In addition the colors are different and points of light have been added.

The photos below show where Norman’s signature has been forged by a very poor forger. I don’t even think I have to point out the dissimilarities.

Norman’s alleged signature from photoshopped photo:

Norman’s signature from my book:


The original photos in the Ringmakers of Saturn are exquisite in detail. But in all fairness to Norm if he were to authorize their posting without the viewer having read the accompanying text they would be just more anomalous pictures of the rings of Saturn.
