Nostradamus — King of Terror
Quite otherwise will one interpret it,
PAGE SUMMARY: Many scientific discoveries have come about purely by accident. An investigator or a researcher was looking for one thing, when something else completely unexpected pops up. In this case, I was looking for Comet Lee, or something in the tail of Comet Lee. However, what I found in the live NASA feed of the August 11, 1999 eclipse over Turkey were three objects, none of which seemed a likely candidate for Comet Lee, which I labeled Objects A, B, and C respectively. Objects A and C later proved to be man-made. However, Object was not man-made, and the horseshoe corona on its leading edge indicated that it was most likely a comet.
People had watched the eclipse with great anticipation. They expected to see something grand and majestic. However, Nostrdamus never promised this. He simply states that the "monster will be seen in full day," which was viewed via the NASA live feed. Nonetheless, the debate raged on as to what the three objects I spotted in the video feed could be, and it finally came to head thanks to the needling of Richard Hoagland, who jumped to premature conclusion while viewing the video feed playback.
He expressed the opinion that we had seen light bulbs going off, which would have been true if there had been UFO or two high above the crowd taking pictures of the crowd. Nonetheless, I was forced to respond and thanks to the Russian Space Program, we obtained some revealing images taken by a French Cosmonaut on the MIR space station during the eclipse.
Thanks to this heated and rather passionate debate, we eliminated Objects A and C, and focused our attention on Object B. In the final analysis, I owe Richard Hoagland my thanks for making me defend my work, because it did reveal that we had in fact seen the King of Terror during the August 11, 1999 eclipse over Turkey, just as Nostradamus had prophesied.

***** HERE IS WHAT I MISSED *****
We had one man with some very impressive video credentials express the opinion that the QuickTime video had been edited. What he said made sense, but the evidence was a bit thin. Then, I got your e-mail John, and started to review the QuickTime video clip again. This time, I had the QuickTime player and the Real Networks player side-by-side on my desktop and started viewing the same scenes on both files. This time I noticed some odd things I hadn't noticed before.
As the old saying goes, "the devil is in the details."

Was Comet Lee Seen During the August 11, 1999 Eclipse?
There was a tremendous amount of speculation about Comet Lee leading up to the full eclipse witnessed in Europe on August 11, 1999. A great deal of this speculation surrounded the following quatrain: C3 - Q34
When the eclipse
of the Sun will then be,
"When the eclipse of the Sun will then be," -- It was generally accepted that Nostradamus was referring to the Eclipse witnessed in Europe on August 11, 1999 "In broad daylight the monster will be seen:" -- This seems to be the point of disillusionment. It was generally believed that the comet (monster) would be visible to the naked eye.
In my case, I detected three objects in a video clip provided by CNN. Two (referred to as Objects A & C) would later prove to be man-made. The third (referred to as Object B) appears to be fragmented comet.
"Everyone will differ on the interpretation," I have written several articles as a result of what I saw in the original CNN video clip. To date, the controversy over Objects A and C still rages on.
To date, no evidence has been submitted to challenge my assertion that Object B is in fact Comet C/1999 Lee and that it fragmented during its journey around the opposite side of the Sun.
During the eclipse, viewing a Comet during a "Total Solar Eclipse" can be difficult, because of solar glare. However, some ground based telescopes and satellites, such as SOHO/LASCO may be able to observe it.
This is why we were absolutely delighted when we received an anonymous email from someone inside the government. This individual expressed a strong desire for anonymity, but likewise expressed disbelief in an explanation offered by a manager. The email contained a link a government web site, where I managed to download a satellite video clip mentioned in the email.
Upon inspection I found that the frames mentioned by the author had been removed as part of what appears to be a 7-second redaction. Consequently, things are just as Nostradamus predicted, "Everyone will differ on the interpretation." As to the rest of the quatrain, your guess is as good as mine.

No One, Mr. Hoagland"
RICHARD HOAGLAND: It was quite clear to me that the TMG objects were probably flood lights of some kind mounted on stanchions in the background. The mysterious "Object C" seems to be nothing more than someone in the crowd using a flash camera to record the event.
Objects A, B, and C
Our answer to Mr. Hoagland contains images that have been on our site for some time, plus several new images that offer significant insights into this story. These images are presented in the date order in which we received them, along with comments that I hope will help clarify matters.
Eclipse -- August 11, 1999
This eclipse was special in that also coincided with the prophecies of Nostradamus. Consequently, the world watched this event with both joy and trepidation. Those who believed in the prophecies expected to see a huge comet during the eclipse and were greatly disappointed.
Yet, this event continues to stir the imaginations of many. The original story published August 18, 1999 by TMG, Solar Eclipse as Seen From Turkey by Marshall Masters still holds the TMG record for the most widely read article every published on the site. As of this writing, it currently stands as 10th most popular article on the site.
Six months after the first publication of this article, it still being read by well over 3,000 site visitors every month. When TMG analyzed the site traffic logs in September 1999, we learned that a significant percentage of those readers were from the various agencies of the United States Government.
Sighting of Objects A, B, and C from NASA Video Feed
In my first TMG article Solar Eclipse as Seen From Turkey, I analyzed MPEG files with NASA video feed imagery of the August 11, 1999 eclipse in Turkey using Apple QuickTime 4 Pro. During that analysis I identified three visual objects, which I labeled Objects A, B and C.
At that point, the immortal words of Sherlock Holmes took root: "The game is afoot." And so began a long and partially unfulfilled search for answers as to the real identities of Objects A, B and C.
Close-up Composite of Objects A, B, and C
The first real breakthrough in identifying Objects A, B and C came via an extremely talented man by the name of Joseph Malinoski. He sent me a single composite image which I first published in my third eclipse article titled, Solar Eclipse as Seen From Turkey Update #2 - August 24, 1999 by Marshall Masters
August 11, 1999 Eclipse Imagery from MIR Space Station
After publishing the article, Solar Eclipse as Seen From Turkey Update #2, a storm of contreversy sprang up around the true identities of Objects A, B and C.
Many people, like Mr. Richard Hoagland in his December 28, 1999 article speculated that the objects were really camera flashes from the ground.
These explanations did not make sense to me having worked as: A professional photographer for 6 years; photojournalist for the U. S. Army for 2 years; and as a science feature news producer for CNN for 2 years.
Still the same, it was obvious that we needed to corroborate our initial findings. This was a frustrating process, since NASA was and still is a stone wall when it comes to talking about these objects. However, we did get cooperation from the Russian Space Agency vis-à-vis excellent imagery from the MIR space station, captured at the time of the eclipse.
Composite of Objects A and C as Seen From the MIR Space Station
The imagery from the MIR space station helped us to positively identify Object A and Object C, as shown in this composite image. In this breathtaking image, you can see both Objects A and C in low Earth orbit over the European continent.
Russian SB16 Missile Booster as Seen From MIR Space Station
Oddly enough, the brunt of the controversy had swirled around Object A, and a bit on Object C. Nobody ever commented on Object B until Mr. Hoagland decided that it was a camera flash. Mr. Hoagland also decided that Object A was a camera flash as well.
Nonetheless, this second image from the MIR Space Station, settles the issue of Object A once and for all. Object A was a spent Russian SB16 missile booster, which also happened to create a lot of concern for Floridaians when it disintegrated over the Atlantic shortly thereafter.
Comparison of NASA Video Feed with MIR Imagery of the August 11, 1999 Eclipse Over Turkey
Thanks to MIR Space Station imagery provided by the Russian Space Agency, we were able to close the books on Objects A and C.
This left us Object B as the only remaining item on the "unknown" list. Likewise, it also left us with an immutable wall of silence from NASA that remains to this very day.
Object B from August 11, 1999 Eclipse Over Turkey
This is Object B. It has yet to identified, and after many of months of trying there is no real hope in site. I will admit that at the outset I thought that it was Comet Lee. Later analysis showed that it was not Lee, but given that Lee is now headed towards towards the furthest reaches of our system I wish I had been right.
Object B is not a man-made object, a camera flash or a speck on the lens. Rather, it is the real McCoy and it is out there. Furthermore, our government does not want us to know what it is or where it is going. Like Object B, we must forge forward through the darkness.
