Today I’d like to share some research I’ve done in June 2008 after listening to
“Bashar’s Lab” A Truly Interactive Experience Los Angeles, CA 6-15-08
(Bonus: An extensive exploration of which stars in our galaxy have life)
At the moment mainstream media talks about the discovery of Proxima Centauri, one of the planets which was discussed by Bashar during the above mentioned session.
Back in 2008 I found the following information on Proxima Centauri:
Proxima Centauri: (established colony)
(or Alpha Centauri C) = 4.2 lightyears away
Is too dim to be seen with the naked eye.
- Proxima (Alpha Centauri C) is a very cool and very dim, main sequence red dwarf (M5.5Ve) that appears to have only 0.107 ± 0.021 percent of Sol’s mass and 14.5 percent of its diameter. With a visual luminosity that has reportedly varied between 0.000053 and 0.00012 of Sol’s (based on a distance of 4.22 light-years)the star is as much as 19,000 times fainter than the Sun, and so if it was placed at the location of our Sun from Earth, the disk of the star would barely be visible. It is chromosperically active with a rotation period of 31.5 +/- 1.5 days and appears to be between five and six billion years old.
The star is located roughly a fifth of a light-year from the AB binary pair and, if gravitationally bound to it, may have an orbital period of around half a million years. However, its motion with respect to the AB pair is hyperbolic. Accounting for infrared radiation, the distance from Proxima where an Earth-type planet would be “comfortable” with liquid water is around 0.02 to 0.06 AU much closer than Mercury’s orbital distance of about 0.4 AU from Sol — with an orbital period of two to 16 days. Hence, the rotation of such a planet would probably be tidally locked so that one side would be in perpetual daylight and the other in darkness. Three star spots may have been observed recently with the Hubble Space Telescope.
Like many red dwarfs, Proxima is a “Flare Star” that can brighten suddenly to many times its normal luminosity. Its flares can roughly double the star’s brightness and occur sporadically from hour to hour. Moreover, more than one flare may be emitting at a time. From May to August 1995, several flares were observed with changes within a time-scale of weeks, and archival data suggests that the star may have a long-term activity cycle. Its designated variable star name is V645 Centauri.
- Using data collected up to early 1994, astronomers using the Hubble Space Telescope discerned a 77-day variation in the proper motion of Proxima. The astrometric perturbations found could be due to the gravitational pull of a large planet with about 80 percent of Jupiter‘s mass at a 1994 separation from Proxima of about 0.17 AUs — 17 percent of Earth’s orbital distance in the Solar System from the distance, or less than half Mercury’s orbital distance. The Hubble astrometry team calculated that the chance of a false positive reading from their data — same perturbations without a planet — to be around 25 percent.
- In 1996, another group of astronomers using the Hubble Space Telescope discovered that they might have directly observed a companion to Proxima with the implied brightness of a brown dwarf and an apparent visual separation of only about half the Earth-Sun distance — 0.5 AU. A substellar companion at that distance would imply an orbital period of around a year, or it could be in a highly eccentric orbit with a much greater average distance from Proxima. However, later observations by other astronomers using interferometric astrometry and recent radial velocity data found no evidence to support the existence of a companion greater than 0.8 Jupiter mass with an orbital period around Proxima Centauri of between one and about 2.7 years. Proxima has been selected to be one of the Tier 1 target stars for NASA’s Space Interferometry Mission (SIM) — which is planned for launch as early as 2011 — to detect a planet as small as three Earth-masses within two AUs of its host star.
The following information on Centaurians comes from: http://www.paoweb.com/
Member Name: The Great Star Union of Centaurus.
Accepted into the Galactic Federation: 1.1 million years ago.
Location: The Constellation of Centaurus is located between the constellations of Lupus and Vela. It is best known for its brightest star, the triple star system of Alpha Centauri (also known as Rigel Kentaurus). One of its triple stars is Proximi Centauri, which, at 4.3 Light Years, is the closest known star to Earth.
Distance From Earth: 4.3 to over 1,000 Light Years.
Life Form Type: A humanoid and a reptoid species.
Physical Appearance: The humanoid Centaurian closely resembles those humans now found on Earth. The male is very muscular and well-proportioned with blonde, brown, black or red hair. The eyes are either slightly Asian in shape, or are rounded, and are brown, black, blue, green or hazel in color. In height, males vary from nearly 6 feet to almost 8 feet (1.8 to 2.4 meters). Their skin color can be either a very dark brown or a slightly tanned white color. The female is also well-proportioned but less muscular, and ranges from 5 feet 5 inches to almost 7 feet (1.65 to 2.1 meters) tall.
The reptoid Centaurian has a very scaly lizard-like and muscular body. Its skin color is in patches of either green and blue, or red and green. The hands are narrower than a human’s and contain six digits which end in a razor-sharp, curved claw. The eyes are rounded and bulging with a reptoid-like vertical slit, and are either bright red or golden in color. There is no tail, but the feet have five long toes ending in the same curved claw. The female, at just under 8 feet (2.4 meters), is slightly taller.
Special Traits and Abilities: Centaurians are known for their abilities as great strategists and Federation Liaison Counselors. They excel at bringing groups of diverse sentient Beings together and at achieving their goals in a most peaceful and harmonious manner.
Average Amount of Sleep Needed: 2 to 4 hours.
Language: Humanoid language is quite guttural like German, but tonal-sounding like Chinese. Reptoid language is extremely guttural and filled with sounds that are difficult for most humans to replicate.
Mother Ship and Other Craft: Centaurians have two types of ships visible in Earth’s skies. The first ship is an all-purpose scout. It is bell-shaped, with a large lens-like circular wing attached to its underside. It is about 45 feet (14 meters) in diameter, and nearly 30 feet (9.1 meters) in height. The second is a command ship, shaped like a cigar with a small bulge in its middle, and is approximately 200 feet (over 60 meters) in length.
During the same channeling session Bashar also talked about:
Alfa Centauri, Barnard Star, Sirius, 61 Cygni, Epsilon Indi, Tau Ceti, Epsilon Eridani
If you are interested I’m happy to post about these as well.
