"Nicolas Camille Flammarion FRAS[1] (26 February 1842 – 3 June 1925) was a French astronomer and author. He was a prolific author of more than fifty titles, including popular science works about astronomy, several notable early science fiction novels, and works on psychical research and related topics. He also published the magazine L'Astronomie, starting in 1882. He maintained a private observatory at Juvisy-sur-Orge, France. " "As a young man, Flammarion was exposed to two significant social movements in the western world: the thoughts and ideas of Darwin and Lamarck, and the rising popularity of spiritism with spiritualist churches and organizations appearing all over Europe. He has been described as an "astronomer, mystic and storyteller" who was "obsessed by life after death, and on other worlds, and [who] seemed to see no distinction between the two." He was influenced by Jean Reynaud (1806–1863) and his Terre et ciel (1854) , which described a religious system based on the transmigration of souls believed to be reconcilable with both Christianity and pluralism. He was convinced that souls after the physical death pass from planet to planet, progressively improving at each new incarnation.". Very Good- .

"The United Family of Anomaly Hunters (UFAH) are a team of fourteen research groups that have come together to expose hidden artifacts and space anomalies on planets, moons and comets in our solar system. The discoveries so far have been spectacular and jaw-dropping, to say the least. Many of the UFAH’s members space anomalies have made international news on top new outlets like CNN and the Huffington Post. After downloading close to one million images from official sources, the team at UFAH has discovered thousands of anomalies hidden in plain sight. It appears that NASA and Caltech try to cover up some of the images with distortion and blurring techniques. But it seems they always leave a few breadcrumbs for us to find." (from Gaia website).
