Have researchers found the lost ancient city of gold? - May 16, 2013

Researchers from the University of Houston and the National Center for Airborne Laser Mapping appear to have discovered an ancient city in the South American jungle.

Researchers believe they may finally have uncovered the lost 'White City of gold' in Honduras using hi-tech scanners that let aircraft 'see' through dense forest.

What the archaeologists found — and what the new images reveal — are features that could be ancient ruins, including canals, roads, building foundations and terraced agricultural land.

According to legend, Ciudad Blanca or the 'White City' is full of gold and has been sought out by explorers and treasure hunters since conquistador Hernando Cortes first made reference to it in a 1526 letter to King Charles V of Spain.

Inspired by this legend, cinematographer and Ciudad Blanca enthusiast Steven Elkins sought backing from private investors to pay for the team at NCLAM to use their laser mapping technology to chart the forest floor of Mosquitia.

The archaeologists plan to get their feet on the ground this year to investigate the mysterious features seen in the new images.

  3. I have to insist since no correction has been made: Honduras is far far from South America.

Flying Saucer disguised as cloud photographed over Milwaukee, Wisconsin

Interesting photograph of a cloaked UFO in the sky over Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Portholes are visible in the upper part of the flying saucer-shaped UFO.


The photographer who has submitted the images to MUFON states:

I parked on Lena’s parking lot, which is a grocery store. I looked up to the sky before getting out of my car when I saw the cloud looking UFO shape in the sky.

I screamed excitedly to my son “Look a UFO” so we excitedly came out of my car quick to take pictures . I was so exited taking pictures I didn’t even think of taking a video.

So then I proceeded after that to go inside the grocery store quick because I wanted to see if it was still there and 11 minutes later I took another photo which was not the full shape UFO I seen, it was like a UFO was there and it left the rest of the cloud behind it or smoke or something.

America Before-Exposing the Cover-Up of Ancient Advanced Civilizations

We speak to Graham Hancock about his new book America Before: The Key to Earth’s Lost Civilization.


Graham Hancock discusses how dogmatism in archaeology has covered up 130,000 years of human history in the Americas and evidence of advanced civilizations that lived in the Americas thousands of years ago, which challenges colonial narratives of uncivilized natives incapable of high culture.

Breakaway Civilization - Do You Want to Go to Mars

The ever-growing expanse of breakaway civilizations requires a vast workforce ranging from menial labor to intelligentsia.



Some people are recruited under false pretenses, some are genetically engineered, and others are outright abducted from their lives on Earth.

None, however, are prepared for what they will face during their tenure inside the program. Those who have returned convey that their involvement challenged the range of human experience from the awful to the unimaginably awesome.

What has been hidden will become evident as the pieces of this intricate puzzle are finally put together.
