Coast listener Martin writes: "With all the news of the Red Planet this week, I submit this photo of "My Closest Approach To Marrs on Earth." Jim Marrs, that is, as in tonight's guest. Martin had his "close encounter" with Marrs at his book signing during Conspiracy Con in Santa Clara. Click here to view.
Mars is ready for it's close-up, reaching its closest distance to Earth today. Click here to view a portrait of the planet taken by the Hubble telescope hours ago, showing Hellas Basin. The recent images are being called the "best Mars globe photos ever." With these unprecedented views of Mars, NASA is inviting the public to submit location suggestions to be photographed by the Mars Global Surveyor. Details are here.

Before there was frozen pizza and canned peaches, there was dried food. In fact drying has been for thousands of years the main method of food preservation. Tonight's guest, Richard Perez has posted an article (in PDF format) by Dennis Scanlin on his website, that details how to use and construct a Solar Food Dryer. By lowering the moisture content in food, spoilage is prevented and flavor and nutrition are to some degree preserved. Just about any food source can be dried, and once completed they tend to take up less weight and bulk than other storage methods. The way the food is dried is affected by temperature, humidity and air flow. Temperatures used vary depending on the item, with higher temperatures drying faster. The Solar Dryer costs about a $150 to make and uses such basic materials as plywood, stainless steel, and aluminum. This outdoor contraption operates by natural convection, and can for instance, dry 7-10 lbs. of thinly sliced fruit or veggies in one to two
One country that has created an elaborate underground labyrinth of bunkers, residences and tunnels is Iraq, and it's possible that Saddam Hussein is currently hiding out in a subterranean location there. The recent special Saddam's Secret Tunnels on the History Channel, explored some of these mysterious underground locations that it's believed Saddam began building back in the 1980's, using equipment and materials from countries around the world. He ordered the construction of an intricate network, "with miles of interconnected tunnels with camouflaged entry points, and escape routes to Syria," Newsweek's Christopher Dickey commented. Saddam is said to have been inspired by the Yugoslavian dictator Tito's impenetrable bunker system. In fact, his underground "Project 2000," built across from the Presidential Palace, was hit by 5,000 lb. precision bombs during the recent conflict, and though, the US military says the state of the bunker is "classified," it is believed it is l
George Noory is proud to announce that Peter Davenport of the National UFO Reporting Center (NUFORC) will be a regular contributor to Coast to Coast AM. "Starting in September, Peter will make periodic visits to C2C, updating listeners with the latest information on breaking UFO reports," said George "and I am pleased that Peter would agree to come back to the show." NUFORC is highly regarded for its collection and dissemination of objective UFO data.
Tonight Friday Night Feature presents two different stories and drawings: The Cackling Shadow Person Here is a rendition of a Shadow Person I saw years ago during a suicide attempt. Definitely not a positive encounter. It horrified me so much, I struggled to keep going. As I was bleeding, this creature moved supernaturally fast and cackled at the fact it was about to take my soul. The entire Shadow Person phenomena has brought all this back to me. --Steve email@example.com The Unknown Animal Five weeks ago, prior to finding your show on the radio, I was driving tothe Salt Lake City Airport about 7:45pm. It's dark but not overly so. On the way, I drive over a mountain pass with a town half way through. So, after passing the town I see this dog's buttside along the side the road just standing there. The dog has very curly hair of a brownish gray color and looks very dirty. Another noticeable feature is it has no paws, almost like curly haired tubes. It
When I interviewed tonight's guest, Sean David Morton, for After Dark back in 1999, he told me about a process he underwent called Direct Time Soul Transference. "I went forward a 100 years into the future in front of 700 people in Anaheim in 1994. In my experience, what you might call a 'post-life progression,' I switched bodies with my next reincarnation, 'Vajra.' I was running around a farm in Omaha looking at things...while he spoke to the crowd in Anaheim." As Morton witnessed unusual geometric buildings at the Omaha complex that had synthesized jewels on the roofs that enhanced functions, "Vajra" filled the audience with details of what to him were past events. Here is a partial timeline: 2017: US war with China, 200 million-strong army invades America. 2027: Planet hit by meteor, huge devastation. 2034: Alien intervention, Messianic figure "Immaneula" born around this time. 2050+: Civilization rebuilt, golden age lies ahead. --L.L.
Coast to Coast AM with George Noory has been named the best Alternative Talk program amongst network and syndicated shows, in a just published poll in the trade magazine Radio Ink. Their annual Readers Choice Awards polled radio executives, managers, programmers and marketers to determine which programs were working the best on their stations, and were the most popular with their listeners. While Art Bell is credited with creating "America's most fascinating radio program," it is "George Noory that has carried the show forward for the past eight months," Radio Ink wrote.
One of the topics tonight's guest, Seth Shostak, the Senior Astronomer for SETI, will be talking about, is the new Allen Telescope Array, now under construction. The facility at theHat Creek Observatory on a remote patch of Northern California land, will be a veritable "antenna orchard," said Shostak, containing 350 small radio telescopes all working together to greatly expand SETI's "stellar reconnaissance." Made possible through funding by former Microsoft technologists Paul Allen and Nathan Myhrvold, the Array will give SETI full time access for their missions, whereas previously they only got a meager number of weeks out of the year to use facilities like Arecibo. With this new form of radio astronomy, SETI's research could be taking a giant leap forward. SETI's current Project Phoenix currently tracks about a thousand stars. When the Allen Array goes online, they will have the ability to monitor transmissions from possibly 100,000 stars or more, because the Array can e
Due to the major power failure on Thursday in the U.S. and Canada, George Noory presented two hours of early coverage last night, which was heard live on Streamlink, and in markets that carry the early feed. The audio archive of this material is posted under Show Clips (above). Here is a rundown of the four guests who appeared, each for a half-hour: Terrorism Expert Bazzel Baz (TerrorismSurvivalHandbook) started the show and noted the proximity of timing of the blackout to the recent computer virus, which he said is believed to have originated in China. Physicist Jim McCanney (jmccanneyscience.com) followed, and spoke of a "low rumbling sonic boom," that had been heard in the area at the time of the blackout. James Chiles (invitingdisaster.com),a technology writer, appeared next, suggesting one possible cause could have been a disgruntled employee who would have the skills to inflict this kind of damage. The two-hour special closed with author Steve Quayle (stevequayle.
Wednesday's first hour guest Shelly Lynn Williams PhD, a primate researcher, spoke about evidence for a possible new ape species discovered in the Congo. These enigmatic creatures appeared on some video footage she shot. One of the animals was gray in color, which Williams said was unusual for an ape. She believes they may be hybrids of either guerilla-chimp or chimp-bonobo, if not an altogether new species that has never been documented previously. Below is a set of pictures related to her work.

On November 9, 1965, over thirty million people in the Northeastern region of the U.S. and Canada were plunged into darkness in what became known as the "Big Blackout."The official cause of the huge outage shifted from one explanation to another, until it was finally pinned on an unknown power surge that occurred at a generating station north of Niagara Falls. But what could have caused this huge wave of electricity (reportedly 1.1 million kiowatts) that led to a relay malfunction? Interestingly, there were a number of documented UFO sightings in the area proceeding and during the blackout. For instance, a pilot who safely landed a plane in the darkness at the airport in Syracuse, said he saw an enormous ball of light drifting in the sky. Around the same time, a flight instructor and a student who were in the air, also saw the object and pinpointed its location to be directly above the Clay sub-station, which was where the original investigation of the blackout began. The l
Just coming out in the mainstream media, such as in this article, is a story we broke 6 months ago on Coast to Coast. Guest Harry Braun discussed how the cryogenically frozen Ted Williams' head had been severed from his body, with the plan being to eventually download his memory onto a computer chip and then reload into a clone of himself.

Tonight's guest, Dr. Bruce Goldberg, has collected case studies of people who say they were visited by time travelers from 1,000 to 3,000 years in our future. Pioneering out-of-body explorer, the late Robert Monroe, wrote of traveling to Earth, at a time beyond the year 3,000 in his book Far Journeys. While out of body, he was escorted by an INSPEC (intelligent species) and at first they viewed the planet from space. "Around the earth was a single flat ring, much like the ones around Saturn, and it was radiating and sparkling...from its own internal source," wrote Monroe. As they flew in closer, he noted there were no visible planes, ships, or people. However, there was a lush growth of trees and plants, some types of which he had never seen before. Monroe was told that the planet was occupied by far less people and those that were here were "H-plus" (humans-plus: indicating modifications from those of our present time). After they "landed," he encountered two INSPEC appearin
This week, we present the first subject of our new Entities Gallery which combines accounts of strange beings with drawings made by the witnesses. The first tale comes from Carolyn K.: Back in 1966, my brother and I, ages 8 and 9 years old at the time, were camping with our father at a lakein California called Cachuma Lake. This lake is located in the mountains above Santa Barbara. We both (without our father) got up pre-dawn one morning and walked to our favorite fishing spot andsettled in for a morning of fishing. There were no other people in the area at this point (around 5:30 a.m.)We were sitting, relaxed and waiting for fish when something caught my eye over by a huge, old oak tree. I looked at my brother who was also staring at this "being" who, in turn, was staring at us. It wasprobably about 40 feet from us sitting on the ground next to the oak tree. Its appearance was strange.My brother and I had a sense that it was sort of human and sort of animal
He could be anyone from Bill Gates to George W. Bush, absurdly even David Hasselhoff!according to various Internet rumor mills. Tonights guest, Kathleen Keating, an investigative journalist who writes from an end times Christian perspective, said she actually saw the Antichrist in her backyard in last appearance on Coast back in March of 2001: There was this guy standing
in a charcoal Armani suit and a turtleneck with his long hair pulled back, uh, very good-looking guy, and I was like startled because there I was in my pajamas. She went on to describe how this figure seemed to vanish into thin air and intimated that this person was a popular spiritual teacher whose real motives hadnt been disclosed yet. The great seer for the ages, Nostradamus wrote of three Antichrists, two of whom (Napoleon and Hitler) have already played out their dramas. In his mysterious quatrains, Nostradamus posited a blue turbaned leader from the East as the third Antichrist who comes under the g
Tonight's guest, Peter Schwartz, has made a prediction on the intriguing site longbets.org, a public forum created to stimulate long-term ideas. Members to the site can log in their long term predictions, and then other participants can bet for or against the proposition, with the wagers going to philanthropic causes. Schwartz's prediction that "at least one human alive in the year 2000 will still be alive in 2150," has already attracted one person to bet $1,000 against it. Ironically, if the person wagering against it is still alive in 2150, she will lose the bet. In his argument for increased longevity, Schwartz points to the current work in stem cell research, as well as in telomerase, an enzyme in DNA, which may yield new life extension therapies. He further notes that human lifespan doubled from 45 to 85 in the last century. If that was to happen again in the 21st century, we could have 170-year olds walking around! --L.L.
George read the following story over the air on Wednesday night: The Pink DressThere was this little girl sitting by herself in the park. Everyone passed by her and never stopped to see why she looked so sad. Dressed in a worn pink dress, barefoot and dirty, the girl just sat and watched the people go by.She never tried to speak. She never said a word.Many people passed by her, but no one would stop. The next day I decided to go back to the park in curiosity to see if the little girl would still be there.Yes, she was there, right in the very spot where she was yesterday, and still with the same sad look in her eyes. Today I was to make my own move and walk over to the little girl. For as we all know, a park full of strange people is not a place for young children to play alone.As I got closer I could see the back of the little girl's dress. It was grotesquely shaped.I figured that was the reason people just passed by and made no effort to speak to her.
Tonight's guest Steve Quayle believes science may be headed down a thorny path with recent genetic breakthroughs. One of the first examples of tissue engineering, was performed at the University of Boston, whereby a "human" ear was grafted onto a mouse. The ear shape was molded out of biodegradable plastic and scattered with human cartilage cells before being implanted onto the mouse's back. Surprisingly, the ear can be removed without hurting the mouse. But extra ears aren't just for mice, the UK-based artist Stelarc is embracing the idea for himself and is planning to have a third ear grafted onto his arm. "While it can't hear, with an implanted sound chip and a proximity sensor, the ear will be able to speak to anyone who gets close to it," BBC News reports. In 2002, miniature human kidneys were grown inside a mouse, and there is hope that this technique may eventually help those in the long wait for kidney transplants. But can these techniques go too far? In the

Technology consultant Larry Park, the author of Forbidden Secrets of the Earthquake Revealed, discussedvolcanic dangers he believes are present in America and particularly in the Northwest, during the first hour on Friday. Through testing with his unique technology, Park has concluded that monstrous pressures are building up underground and could cause volcanoes, such as the one at Yellowstone Lake to blow. Should such an event occur at this location, magma would shoot up thirty miles into the air, and he said, it would be one of the "loudest explosions mankind would ever hear," a sound literally heard around the world. Not only would large amounts of ash be sent up into the stratosphere, but a 75 mile area surrounding the volcano would be devastated, Park warned. For more details about his theories read his article published on yowusa.com.
