Just recently on December 5th, 2014, a live feed from the I.S.S. showed a flashing red light. This almost instantly caused all types of hype around the video of the feed. Alot of claims came forward of a UFO beaming lasers down to Earth in an effort to communicate. Anyone who knows me or has read anything tht I write, knows very well that i'm a believer in Extraterrestrial life. But I admit, after watching this video, I didn't see the clear-cut evidence pointing to an E.T. craft making an attempt to hit Earth with a laser.
Really my first question in my mind was if it was OPAL? Admittingly, I couldn't remember the name OPAL to save my own butt, but I knew back in early June they were testing the live video and had success. And if you remember, The Antares rocket that exploded at Wallup a little while back supposedly had "Top Secret" encrypting equipment from the C.I.A. loaded onto it. Always was curious as to whether that equipment had anything to do with OPAL?
I.S.S. mission manager, Mathew Abramson, is the gentleman who claims this is what was witnessed on the feed, and goes on to describe how it all works. OPAL-" Is four lasers from the ground beamed up to the I.S.S., which are easily picked up by OPALS beacon at night, but difficult to do so during the day." To fix this problem, new software has been developed to boost OPAL's daytime capabilities.
Whether this is, or isn't what happened that day on December 5th, we may never know for sure. I'd like to be able to believe what NASA has to tell us, but we all know they haven't been exactly truthful with the public in the past. My goal is to make positive contributions to the Ufology field anyway that I can. If anything more developes on this story, you'll be the first to know!
