Not
from Operation Highjump

“I do not want to scare anybody but the bitter reality is that in the event of a new
war, the United States will be attacked by aircraft flying in from over one or both poles.”

- Admiral Richard E. Byrd, U. S. Navy, after abrupt termination of his
Operation Highjump antarctic Expedition at the end of February 1947, six months early

 

Further Updates November 11, 2017 - After posting the first Earthfiles November 7, 2017, at the end of this Further Updates, in cooperation with NEXUS in Australia, with the goal of learning more facts about the five photographs submitted anonymously to NEXUS on November 5th, Earthfiles has now received the following emails:

Re: Photos from 1947 Byrd Expedition: Evidence of digital photo alteration
Date: November 8, 2017

Dear Linda,

I am a long time subscriber and enjoy your work very much. With great interest I read the article published today in Earthfiles regarding the Admiral Byrd expedition and viewed the spectacular photos of UFOs apparently being engaging by ship anti-aircraft fire.

I wanted to write to advise you that the following photo appears to be digitally altered. The UFO appears too bright for my trained eye (retired geoscientist who has created many digital photo-fusion art pieces). So I looked to see if I could find this original photo. I did.


Image 02: This is the original Battle of the Santa Cruz Islands on October 26, 1942, from which the anonymous source manipulated Image 02 below to create: TS Clench Bolt Task Force 68, February 10, 1947, CV-47. Received by NEXUS on November 5, 2017.

The referenced photo was taken during the Battle of the Santa Cruz Islands, October 26, 1942. The aircraft carrier is the USS Enterprise. Above is the same photo taken from Wikipedia below.


Google: October 1942 Battle of Santa Cruz Islands.

 

That October 26, 1942, photograph was used to insert the round UFO (below) in upper right of one of five anonymous photos sent to NEXUS.


Concocted Image 02 from anonymous source: TS Clench Bolt Task Force 68,
February 10, 1947, CV-47. Received by NEXUS on November 5, 2017.

The digital artist has added two icebergs in the center of the photo and a false background of snow covered land to the left of the USS Enterprise in addition to the UFO. Everything else is a perfect match to the battle photo taken on October 26, 1942.

It was quite odd when I saw that photo in your article today. I have been blessed with excellent memory and - while I have no explanation why - the ac-ac burst patterns in the photo felt familiar. It only took me a few minutes to find the original. I actually tried to find the icebergs used by the digital artist but gave up my search.

There are extremely clever people out there who can create almost anything digitally and I am one of them! Keep up the great work. I absolutely love Earthfiles and your podcasts.

Kind regards,
Eric Zalas
Carmel, IN

This morning on November 9, 2017, I replied to Mr. Zalas: “But there is still the question: WHY would anyone go to the trouble of sending the 5 photos with the El Mercurio March 5, 1947, article to NEXUS in Australia, who sent me the newspaper article and photos - with two photoshopped with the oddly shaped aerial discs? Do you know what the black spherical object is in the 5th photo?”

Then Bill Ryan of Project Avalon emailed that he was also searching to find originals used in the concocted photographs that are not from the February 1947 Operation Highjump. I thanked him for the help and later received this email with images from Bill.

If you look REALLY carefully at the shapes of the waves at the waterline, you can see the fake photo here is a cleverly Photoshopped image that ...


Concocted Image 03

... uses the 1944 photograph of the USS Sennet below, and then Photoshop adds the foreground ship railing, icebergs and round disc in the sky.

Original Report November 7, 2017 Maleny, Qld., Australia - After the end of WWII in 1946, America's Secretary of the Navy James Forrestal ordered a large Antarctic Expedition called Operation Highjump under the command of U. S. Navy Admiral Richard E. Byrd. On August 26, 1946, Operation Highjump's large naval force of 4,000 personnel designated Task Force 68 launched with the flagship USS Mount Olympus, the aircraft carrier USS Philippine Sea, thirteen U. S. Navy support ships, six helicopters, six flying boats, two seaplane tenders and fifteen other aircraft. The armada arrived in the Ross Sea on December 31, 1946, and after aerial explorations and recording ten new mountain ranges, the expedition was suddenly terminated at the end of February 1947, six months earlier than planned. The entire armada returned to the United States under mysterious circumstances never fully explained to the public.


The Operation Highjump armada launched on August 26, 1946,
and arrived in the Ross Sea on December 31, 1946, and made aerial
explorations recording ten new mountain ranges. The major area covered was the
eastern coastline of Antarctica until the expedition was suddenly
terminated at the end of February 1947, six months early with the entire
armada returning to the United States under mysterious circumstances
never fully explained to the public.

 

Operation Highjump Photos
from Anonymous Source

On November 5, 2017, the Editor of NEXUSNewsfeed.com, Duncan Roads, posted the following March 5, 1947 El Mercurio newspaper article from Santiago de Chile after the sudden and mysterious termination of Operation Highjump — along with five black and white photographs, some containing UFOs, allegedly taken during Operation Highjump.


El Mercurio, March 5, 1947, by reporter Lee Van Atta about U. S.
Admiral Richard Byrd's Operation Highjump military expedition to Antarctica.

Partial translation: “Admiral Richard E Byrd warned today of the necessity for the United States to adopt protective measures against the possibility of an invasion of the country by hostile aircraft proceeding from the polar regions. The admiral said: 'I do not want to scare anybody but the bitter reality is that in the event of a new war, the United States will be attacked by aircraft flying in from over one or both poles.'

“On the subject of the recently terminated expedition, Byrd said that 'the most important of the observations and discoveries made was the of the present potential situation as it relates to the security of the United States ... I can do no more than warn my countrymen very forcibly that the time has passed when we could take refuge in complete isolation and rest in confidence in the guarantee of security which distance, the oceans and the poles provide.'

“The admiral warned of the necessity to 'remain in a state of alert and watchfulness.' He said that he 'realized perhaps better than any other person the significance of the scientific discoveries made in these explorations because I can make comparisons' (i.e. between now and when he was in Antarctica pre-war). We are abandoning the region after making important geographical discoveries.'”
