Making Contact: Jill Tarter and the

Old thread on Shakespeare's UFOs, good for a few "sun dimmed, rum rose" afternoons.

Eerie similarity to a scene in King John...
+ + +
OVER 100 SEE UFOS OVER STRATFORD
STRATFORD was the scene of an unexplained multi-sighting of
unidentified flying objects on Saturday night-witnessed by more than
100 people near the town centre.
Four bright objects appeared in formation above the Warwick Road area,
and were later joined by a fifth, at around 10pm.
The formation-which appeared without any sound-lasted 15 minutes and
baffled those watching from the ground before fading away.
Witness Tom Hawkes saw the lights along with 15 other people
celebrating his girlfriend's birthday at the One Elm in Guild Street.
He said: "I just saw this light appear, then three others. Everyone
said, 'What's that?' Then a fifth one moved in, quite fast. I have no
idea what they could have been. Maybe someone else can offer an
explanation. There were so many people around who must have all seen
it, most people near us were watching them."

(King John Act IV, scene ii)
KING JOHN: My mother dead!
[Re-enter HUBERT]
HUBERT: My lord, they say five moons were seen to-night;
Four fixed, and the fifth did whirl about
The other four in wondrous motion.
KING JOHN: Five moons!
Greg Reynolds
Congratulations; looks like a legitimate coincidence, and UFOs, no
less! I wonder how many possible combinations of five UFOs that
collect there could be? Both cases here seem to be of four joined by
one other, apparently the same size. Not sure about the four "fixed"
with one "whirling about" though, unless "fixed" is similar to
"formation" and "whirling about" similar to "moved in, quite fast."

Since fatalists tend to believe there are no coincidences, only
significant signs, it might be asked what these strange appearances
signify? Is it the Wise Men?, The Magi? How about fairies?:

Fairy Over hill, over dale,
Thorough bush, thorough brier,
Over park, over pale,
Thorough FLOOD, thorough fire,
I do wander everywhere,
Swifter than the MOON's sphere; . . . .

If anyone knew about the origin of SHakespeare's plays
surely it must have been Burbidge!

On April 2, 1948, Margaret Peachey married Geoffrey Burbidge, also a theoretical astrophysicist, with whom she collaborated in one of the most significant astrophysical theories of the century (B2FH, described below)
. . . .

In 1957, the B2FH group showed the famous result that all of the elements except the very lightest, are produced by nuclear processes inside stars. For this they received the Warner Prize in 1959. In her later research she was one of the first to measure the masses, compositions, and rotation curves of galaxies and was one of the pioneers in the spectroscopic study of quasars.[4]
