Zeta Reticuli

Zeta Reticuli (ζ Ret, ζ Reticuli) is a binary star system located about 39 light-years (12 pc) away from Earth. It is located in the constellation Reticulum, and is visible to the unaided eye in very dark skies. Because of the southerly location of the system, it is not visible north of the tropics.

This system consists of a pair of stars that are both similar in physical characteristics to the Sun. Their stellar classification is nearly identical to the Sun,[7] and they are considered solar analogs. ζ1 has 96% of the Sun's mass and 84% of the Sun's radius. ζ2 is slightly larger and more luminous than ζ1, with 99% of the Sun's mass and 88% of the Sun's radius.[3][4]

The two stars are somewhat deficient in metals, having only 60% of the proportion of elements other than hydrogen and helium compared to the Sun.[2][8] For reasons that remain uncertain, they have an anomalously low abundance of beryllium.[5] Both stars are considered unusual because they have a lower luminosity than is normal for main sequence stars of their age and surface temperature. That is, they lie below the main sequence curve on the Hertzsprung-Russell diagram for newly formed stars. Most stars will evolve above this curve as they age.[9]

ζ1 has an intermediate level of magnetic activity in its chromosphere.[10] Although the kinematics of this system suggest that they belong to a population of older stars, the properties of their stellar chromospheres suggests that they are only about 2 billion years old.[11]

On September 20, 1996, a tentative discovery of a hot Jupiter around ζ2 was reported, but the discovery was quickly retracted as the signal was shown to be caused by pulsations of the star.[12] In 2002, ζ1 was examined at an infrared wavelength of 25 μm, but no indication of an excess of infrared radiation was found.[13] In 2007, the Spitzer Space Telescope was used to find an infrared excess at a wavelength of 70 μm around ζ2. This radiation is likely being emitted by a debris disk with a mean temperature of 150 K (−123 °C) that is orbiting the host star at a distance of 4.3 AU.[14] In 2010, the Herschel Space Observatory, looking for debris disks analogous to the Kuiper belt, around sun like stars, detected signs of a possible exo-kuiper belt, with a semi-major axis of 100 AU around ζ2.[15]

Both stars share similar proper motions, radial velocities and distances,[7] confirming that they form a wide binary star system. The stars have an angular separation of 309.2 arc seconds (5.2 arc minutes);[9] far enough apart to appear as a close pair of separate stars to the naked eye with a dark sky. The distance between the two stars is about 3750 AU.[16]

This star system belongs to the Zeta Herculis Moving Group of stars with common motions through space. The space velocity components of this system are (U, V, W) = (−70.2/−69.7, −47.4/−46.4, +16.4/+16.Cool km/s.[2] They are currently on an orbit through the Milky Way galaxy that has an eccentricity of 0.24. This orbit will carry the system as close as 17.4 kly (5.33 kpc) and as far as 28.6 kly (8.77 kpc) from the galactic core. The inclination of this orbit will carry the stars as much as 1.3 kly (0.4 kpc) from the plane of the galactic disk.[17] This likely puts them outside the thick disk population of stars.[18]

ZETA 2 RETICULI

Visible Light Spectrum
HOME SYSTEM OF THE GREYS?




by Joe LeSearne

Edited by Ken Wright


Since the 6th of October, 1995, several new planets orbiting other suns have been discovered and officially announced.  However, in what may be a breakthrough for ufology, on the 20th of September, 1996, a planet was discovered orbiting the star Zeta 2 Reticuli.

In 1961, Betty and Barney Hill were abducted by aliens and taken aboard their spacecraft.  During her abduction, Betty was shown a star map.  She was asked by an alien to point out the Earth, but since Betty had no knowledge of astronomy, she couldn’t reply.  After her abduction, and under hypnotic regression Betty Hill drew the star map as accurately as possible.  A few years later, Marjorie Fish built a few models of star systems using plastic balls and wire .. one of these models matched Betty Hill’s diagram.  The star system from which Betty had been told the aliens originated from was Zeta 2 Reticuli!

Reference:  The Zeta Reticuli Incident by Terence Dickinson
This highly recommended publication is available in hard copy from Stanton Friedman at
http://www.v-j-enterprises.com/sfpage.html

In 1988, Bob Lazar came forward with an incredible story.  Bob Lazar claimed he had worked at Area 51 (S4) in Nevada to reverse engineer alien spacecraft that had been captured by the US Government.  During his stay at S4 he was given briefing papers to read and some of them described the alien’s home solar system .. and yes, you’ve guessed it ... Zeta 2 Reticuli, and specifically the 4th planet in that solar system!

I have provided some interesting information below I found on several mailing lists:
From the Extra Solar Planets Encylopedia: Star Name    Distance
(Parsecs)    Spectral
Class    Visual
Magnitude    M[.sini]
Jupiter mass: (J)
Earth  mass: (E)    Semi-Major         Axis       
(AU)    Period
years (y)
days (d)    Eccentricity    Inclination
(degrees)    Radius
(Earth
Radius)
Zeta 2 Reticuli    11 pc    G1V    5.24    0.27(J)    0.14 AU    18.9 d    0    --    --


In a rather strange “about face,” the above information was removed from the Extra Solar Planets Encyclopedia site after 4 days.  The official reason for removal was that “the data may have been misinterpreted and there probably is no planet.”

Now this big quarter of a Jupiter mass planet is in an orbit about Zeta 2 Reticuli which lasts 18.9 days and has a Semi-Major Axis of 0.14 Astronomical Unit (AU).  For comparison Mercury has a Semi-Major Axis of 0.387 AU equal to 36 million miles and Earth has a Semi-Major Axis of 1.00 AU equal to 92.9 million miles.  Now if we assume that this newly discovered planet, which we will name Reticulum 1 in accordance with Bob Lazar’s convention, is the closest one to Zeta 2 Reticuli (it’s hard to imagine a closer one), then following Bode’s Law (the law which states each planet is about twice the distance from it’s sun as its inner neighbor) Reticulum 2 should be at 0.28 AU, Reticulum 3 should be at 0.56 AU and, INTERESTINGLY, Reticulum 4 would be at 1.12 AU in between the Earth’s 1.00 AU and Mars’s 1.52 AU, well within the “life-zone” of a G class star!

I just found another possible way that this recent discovery could confirm part of Lazar and Jarod 2’s story.  I found the length of the Zeta 2 Reticulum 4’s year.  How did I do this you might ask?  Simple, with calculator in hand I used two elementary laws of Astronomy.  Bode’s Law and Kepler’s 3rd Law.

The numbers I used were from that data on the Extrasolar Planets Encyclopedia Website are these:

    * The Semi-Major Axis of a planetary orbit is measured in Astronomical Units (AU).


    * The Period of an orbit is measured in Earth days or years.  The newly discovered planet has a Semi-Major Axis of 0.14 AU and a Period of 18.9 days.


    * Some Definitions:


         1. 1 Astronomical Unit (AU)  =  92.9 million miles  =  the distance between the Earth and Sun.


         2. The “Semi-Major Axis” is the measurement of the planets orbit, an ellipse, in relation to it’s star in Astronomical Units.  The Earth’s Semi-Major axis is 1.00 AU.  The “Semi-Major Axis” of a perfectly circular orbit would be the radius of that orbit.


         3. The “Period” is the amount of time it takes to complete one orbit.  A planet’s period is it’s year.  The Earth’s Period is 365.25 days.

First, Bode’s Law:

As I stated before if you apply Bode’s law which states:  The semi-major axis of each planet is double that of it’s neighbor nearer to the star.  Or simply each planet is about twice as far from its star as its inner neighbor (i.e. Jupiter is 5.2 AU from the Sun, Saturn is 9.5 AU).  Now if you apply this to the new discovery of a planet around Zeta 2 Reticuli and you assume this planet is the closest to its star this making it the closest planet to Zeta Reticuli 2 (Reticulum 1 we will call it in keeping with Lazar’s naming convention, which, I should add differs from the IAU convention which would name it Zeta 2 Reticulum A - so far).  At 0.14 AU it’s hard to imagine a closer planet to Zeta 2 Reticuli.  For comparison, Mercury is located at 0.387 AU from the Sun so this newly found planet is Reticulum 1 in all likelyhood.  Using Bodes law we can extrapolate where the other planets of Zeta 2 Reticuli should be.

Kepler’s 3rd law relates the planet’s period or year to it’s Semi-Major Axis of it’s orbit.  Mathematically this is expressed as P2 = a3.  “P” is the Period measured in earth years and “a” is the Semi-Major Axis measued in Astronomical units (AU).  Using both of these we can find out the length of the year on each hypothetical planet in the Zeta 2 Reticuli system, INCLUDING Reticulum 4, Bob Lazar’s home of the Greys.

Now let’s apply Bodes Law and Kepler’s 3rd Law:
Planets of the Zeta 2 Reticuli System Planet    Semi-Major Axis    Period
In Days    Period
In Years
Reticulum 1    0.14 AU    18.9 days    0.052 years
Reticulum 2    0.28 AU    54.0 days    0.1481 years
Reticulum 3    0.56 AU    152.9 days    0.4196 years
Reticulum 4    1.12 AU    432.6 days    1.12 years


So one Reticulum 4 year is equal to roughly 1.12 earth years OR 432 days.  And Reticulum 4 is in roughly the same position in Zeta 2 Reticuli’s “life-zone” as the Earth is in the Sun’s “life-zone.”  Zeta 2 Retituli is a G1V spectral class star, the Sun is a G2V.  They are both “G” class main sequence stars, the difference between the “2” and the “1” indicates that Zeta 2 Reticuli is a little hotter than the Sun.  The higher the middle number the lower the temperature.  The “V” means they are both main sequence (middle age) stars but given Zeta 2 Reticuli’s higher temperature, and lower metallicity, it is probably older than the Sun by a couple billion years.  So basically the Sun is a little cooler and younger than Zeta 2 Reticuli.

For comparison here is a breakdown of the inner planets of our own solar system.
Inner Planets of Our Solar System Planet    Semi-Major Axis    Period
In Days    Period
In Years
Mercury    0.387 AU    87.97 days    0.2409 years
Venus    0.723 AU    224.7 days    0.6152 years
Earth    1.000 AU    365.25 days    1.0000 years
Mars    1.524 AU    686.98 days    1.8809 years


So this brings me to my conclusion.  We can check part of Lazar and Jarod 2’s story by asking the simple question:  “How long is a year on Reticulum 4?”  If the answer is anywhere in the neighborhood of 410 to 445 days (I’m allowing a lot for error), then their stock will have gone up even more.  Keep me posted as to what you find out.

Grey aliens (or "Greys") are alleged extraterrestrial beings whose existence is promoted in ufological, paranormal, and New Age communities, named for their skin color.

Paranormal and pseudoscientific claims involving Greys vary in every respect including their nature (ETs, extradimensionals, demons, or machines), origins, moral dispositions, intentions, and physical appearances (even varying in their eponymous skin color). A composite description derived from overlap in claims would have Greys as small bodied, sexless beings with smooth grey skin, enlarged head and large eyes. The origin of the idea of the Grey is commonly associated with the Betty and Barney Hill abduction claim, although skeptics see precursors in science fiction and earlier paranormal claims.

Polling data

Among reports of supposed alien encounters, Greys make up approximately 50 percent in Australia, 43 percent in the United States, 90 percent in Canada, 67 percent in Brazil, 20 percent in Continental Europe, and around 12 percent in Great Britain.[3]

Features

Greys are typically depicted as grey-skinned diminutive humanoid beings that possess reduced forms of, or completely lack, external human organs such as noses, ears or sex organs.[1] Their bodies are usually depicted as being elongated, having a small chest, and lacking in muscular definition and visible skeletal structure. Their legs are shorter and jointed differently than one would expect in a human. Their limbs are often depicted as proportionally different than a human's; their humerus and thighs are the same lengths as their forearms and shins, respectively.[1]

Greys are depicted as having unusually large heads in proportion to their bodies. They are depicted as having no hair anywhere on the body, including the face, and no noticeable outer ears or noses, but only small openings or orifices for ears and nostrils. They are depicted as having very small mouths, and very large, opaque black eyes with no discernible iris or pupil. Sometimes Greys are alternately depicted as having no noticeable nostrils or mouths.

History

The science fiction writer H.G. Wells, in the article "Man of the Year Million" in 1893, describes humanity transformed into a race of grey-skinned beings, stunted and with big heads. In his 1901 book The First Men in the Moon, Selenites, or natives of the Moon, are described as having grey skin, big heads, large black eyes and wasp stings. He also briefly describes aliens resembling Greys brought down to Earth as food by the antagonists of his more popular novel The War of the Worlds.

In 1933, the Swedish novelist Gustav Sandgren, using the pen name Gabriel Linde, published a science fiction novel called Den okända faran (The Unknown Danger), where he describes a race of extraterrestrials: "[...] the creatures did not resemble any race of humans. They were short, shorter than the average Japanese, and their heads were big and bald, with strong, square foreheads, and very small noses and mouths, and weak chins. What was most extraordinary about them were the eyes – large, dark, gleaming, with a sharp gaze. They wore clothes made of soft grey fabric, and their limbs seemed to be similar to those of humans." The novel was aimed at young readers, and it included illustrations of the aliens.

In 1965, newspaper reports of the Betty and Barney Hill abduction brought Greys to international attention. The alleged abductees, Betty and Barney Hill, claimed to have been abducted by alien beings and taken to a saucer-shaped spaceship in 1961. The term "Greys" did not come into usage until many years later, but the alleged beings described by Betty and Barney Hill generally fit many of the common traits of what we now call Greys. From a star chart reported by Betty Hill, an elementary school teacher and amateur astronomer, Marjorie Fish, concluded that the home planet of these beings was located in the Zeta Reticuli star system (their home planet is alleged to be the fourth planet of the second star of Reticulum). The Greys are therefore sometimes known as Zeta Reticulans.
