Be still now and listen

On the 26th of November in 1977 at 17:12, the early evening news on local ITV televsion station Southern Television was unexpectantly interrupted by a six minute transmission from an unknown source.

The speaker claimed to be an extra-terrestrial being representing the Intergalactic Association.

Here is the message he wished to share with the British public:

1977 Vrillon of the Ashtar Galactic Command Incident

This is the voice of Vrillon, a representative of the Ashtar Galactic Command, speaking to you. For many years you have seen us as lights in the skies. We speak to you now in peace and wisdom as we have done to your brothers and sisters all over this, your planet Earth.

We come to warn you of the destiny of your race and your world so that you may communicate to your fellow beings the course you must take to avoid the disaster which threatens your world, and the beings on our worlds around you. This is in order that you may share in the great awakening, as the planet passes into the New Age of Aquarius. The New Age can be a time of great peace and evolution for your race, but only if your rulers are made aware of the evil forces that can overshadow their judgments.

Be still now and listen, for your chance may not come again.

The statement ended with the broadcast returning to normal shortly before the end of a Looney Tunes cartoon. Southern Television later apologised for the “breakthrough in sound” and confirmed that “a hoaxer jammed our transmitter in the wilds of North Hampshire by taking another transmitter very close to it.” However, they were unable to determine the exact source and did not find the person who sent it.

Public opinion was very clear: if they did not know who had done it, how on earth did they know it was a hoax? Vrillon (or Asteron or Gillon – opinions as to his name varies) could have been a real extra-terrestrial visiting North Hampshire.

On the 27th of November in 2011, these astronomically-good photographs appeared on Twitter. I am unable to determine the exact source for most of them – they could be photographs taken by extra-terrestrials:

Could it be that aliens are using Twitter to interact with us? These are the star-studded submitters:
