Default The Frightening Eclipse of 1976

Not many people outside of Australia (or even Melbourne) probably know much about this event, but it was something very strange and significant.

I remember it vividly as a four year-old.

It had a profound impact on me, but it was only recently that I thought to look into this unusual memory from my childhood in more detail.

There was a genuine sense of trepidation that day that rubbed off on me from my parents and my grandparents. I remember being down the paddock on our farm with my Grandfather and brother as the time approached, and there was an almost 'end of the world' vibe to it and a real urgency that we made sure we got back inside the house before the eclipse happened, to watch it on TV.

That might sound naive and quaint now, but as you'll see below, that reaction was intended and planned by the authorities, for unknown reasons, although a desire to ensure that as many people as possible witnessed this event on live television (a world first) seems to be the main one.

Here's a map of the eclipse path. Interesting to note that it ended in the region of Kenya/Tanzania.



I wonder where a 15 year-old Kenyan born Akhenaton-cloned Sun God named Barack Obama was on this day.

It has been said he was living in Indonesia at the time, not far north of the eclipse path.

Maybe a discreet little trip down south to an island in the Indian Ocean, to Australia, or even back home to Kenya for this celestial event was arranged for the future 'king' to be...

Anyway, something was definitely up with this event, and I think it bears all the hallmarks of some kind of ritualistic psy-op on a cosmic level, as you might come to agree after reading the following article...

23 OCTOBER 1976
A Dark Day for Melbourne, Australia

A digression. I normally greatly enjoy sharing the eclipse experience with the local inhabitants of a region who are lucky enough to have such an event fall right in their own back yards. No less so was my expectation for the October 23, 1976 eclipse, which I successfully observed from the summit of Mt. Delegate in Australia. The path of totality passed directly over Melbourne, a city of no small size and should have afforded the opportunity for millions to enjoy basking in the lunar shadow. It is very sad to say, however, it was not so. Not, as some may come to a premature conclusion, due to weather. Oh, no. Rather due to the reign of mis-informed terror foisted upon the populace by the the Australian Optometric Association proclaiming with great authority that "there is NO safe way to watch the eclipse" and "You WILL go blind!". For days before this celestial event the TV's newspapers, kiosks, and radios of Australia blared with incredulous warnings. No effort was made to educate the masses who were to be blessed with totality as to how to watch the eclipse safely, and no distinction was drawn between totality and partial phases. The theme of the bureaucratic agencies "in charge" was "instill fear" rather than "embue with knowledge". To this day I proclaim SHAME ON YOU, for you robbed literally millions of an opportunity to witness one of natures grandest spectacles. Continually echoed was the mantra "THE ONLY SAFE WAY TO SEE THE ECLIPSE IS ON TV". This from the heart of the path of totality! Such was the fright which was induced in the populous that even those that did watch on TV were so brainwashed that this cartoon appeared in one newspaper:



Should you think I exaggerate I have extracted a representative suite of articles from a collection I have of several hundred which appeared in prominent and respected Australian newspapers regarding the eclipse. What I could not reproduce (as my scanner just handles 8x11 paper) were the huge posters hung on every street corner and and full-sized dual page flyers in those newspapers which proclaimed boldly in a dozen languages:

WARNING!
SOLAR ECLIPSE TODAY
NEVER look directly at the Sun at any time. You may damage your eyes.

A TOTAL ECLIPSE OF THE SUN will occur today, Saturday, October 23, 1976, between 3:30pm and 5:45PM.

DO NOT LOOK AT THE SUN because you may damage your eyes. It is DANGEROUS to look at the sun through any kind of filter e.g. sunglasses, smoked glasses, welding glasses, exposed film.
It is VERY DANGEROUS to look at the sun through a telescope, binoculars, a camera lens, or viewfinder.

WATCH THE ECLIPSE ON TELEVISION - this is the SAFE way to see the eclipse.

Can you believe it?

Obviously the powers that be didn't want people watching this event for real, and/or wanted a massive, live Australian audience for some unknown reason on October 23, 1976.

Could this be why?

This is a map of the end-point of the eclipse (check it for yourself here: http://eclipse.gsfc.nasa.gov/SEgoogl...23Tgoogle.html ) in Africa, near the borders between Tanzania, Kenya, Uganda and the Democratic Republic of Congo, along with a marking in red of the approximate area where Credo Mutwa asserts that the underground Copper City of Umbaba is located.



What's Umbaba all about? Here's a link to a thread started on the DI forum by lumukanda a couple of years back, which contains a great explanation by Credo:

http://www.davidicke.com/forum/showthread.php?t=97

Perhaps the reason why the authorities didn't want people viewing this eclipse was because it had some sacred occult connection to Umbaba, and they didn't want common humans diluting it's ritualistic power and significance by viewing it (Melbourne was the only major population centre it passed through).

And/or they piggybacked some kind of new electronic/mass hypnosis technology on the energies the eclipse generated and drew it in at the Umbaba end-point by ensuring there was a massive live audience in Melbourne watching the event on TV.

EDIT: A sidenote for now, but odds on King Obama/Akhenaton ties into all this somehow too:

"Of course, I've been to Australia many times. I love the Australian people."

- Barack Obama to Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd


http://www.news.com.au/heraldsun/sto...60-661,00.html

Obviously these 'many times' visits took place when he was living in anonymity, and more than likely when he was living close by in Indonesia during his youth...in the mid 1970s.

Hmm.

Below I've listed the years when total solar eclipses in the last 4 centuries were visible in totality either directly above 'Umbaba' or very close to it, according to the NASA webpage, World Atlas of Solar Eclipse Paths: http://eclipse.gsfc.nasa.gov/SEatlas/SEatlas.html

1604
1634
1691
1717
1724
1876
1934
1976 *

The next one isn't due until 2041.

As you can see, only two have occurred in the last 133 years, and only one of those (1976) has happened during the modern, electronic/television age.

If the underground city and it's rumoured advanced civilisation and technology is real, it makes sense that the first modern eclipse would be a perfect vehicle to harness and exploit the cosmic/astral energies it generated via electronic means and employ them on the only major human population the eclipse passed over, i.e. Melbourne.


* I'm not sure why NASA appears to have contradicted itself by omitting the important asterisked 1976 year from the above link, when it lists this eclipse elsewhere, such as here: http://eclipse.gsfc.nasa.gov/SEgoogl...23Tgoogle.html , and since I know that it occurred in reality from memory, from other websites and also from the evidence of the newspaper clippings posted earlier.

If anyone's interested in running with the above listed dates and trying to link them to major historical events, maybe with an Illuminati/mythical underground city/reptilian slant, please post the results here.

Also, I think it would be a good idea at some point to look at solar eclipses around the world in the last few hundred years by using these NASA maps (and others) in detail and attempting to make connections to globally significant events that the Illuminati might have engineered at those specific celestial junctures in time.

don't know if this is at all relevant but i read (entangled minds i think) that during the oj simpson trial when all of america and other parts of the world were transfixed onto their tv's for the verdict that the random number generators derandomised (they became more serial), going along with your theory perhaps not only did TPTB require that humans had no part in the real life celestial event either to prevent the enlightening there own spirit for example or not to contaminate the purposes TPTB wanted it for, TPTB could also have had some use for everyone watching their tv at the same time (the random number generator is an effect also linked to the meditation trials carried out in washington dc which saw a 25% drop in crime rates during the mass meditation) that the effect of singularizing (if thats a word?!) many consciousness at that point may have been useful to them as well in some way?

wondered if there was a link?

Very interesting.

Do you know of any links?

I'll kill the unborn children of anyone who turns this into another Michael Jackson thread but I think they used his memorial concert for a ritual along the same lines you're describing.

gosh not sure the book is called "entangled minds - extrasensory experiences in a quantum reality" by dean radin but i think i have seen something online, can't recall you could google randon number generator & oj trial or transendental meditation experiments in washington dc. I'll pm you if anthing else springs to mind or post it here. it may have been one of the extra films on the what the bleep series one of the researchers who appeared on that was into it. not 100% sure.

i think many things are used this way, christmas, princess diana's funeral, festivals like glastonbury. matt delooze talks about this giving of spiritual respect and there seems to be something in it when you consider these experiements that consciousness when unitfied and channelled on to one thing has effects.

Thanks for your input here...

Yes to what you said above, which gives a powerful appreciation of how valuable commodities celebrities must be to them for their ritualistic potential to draw in the energies of a mass audience all at once...

...particularly when it comes time for them to be sacrificed.

yeah it paints a picture. have you any theories as to how they harness and use it? do you think this is done on another dimension like the astral or 4th denisity and that it is done by beings there, perhaps their food? or is it collected by like an onyx ball somewhere release by them during black masses of some kind, or do you think it simply produces a dumbing down effect in that our energies are going toward useless things, discharged there rather then ways/places that would raise our collective consciousness.

sorry if this is derailing your thread which is mighty interesting.

I remember being at school for this.... we all had brought dark brown beer bottles, welder's goggles, etc to school to look on the eclipse as it happened. We were going to sketch our Grade 4 interpretations of it. Lots of study on the matter. I was 9 then. All I remember is that we were warned not to look directly at it, hence our "filters".

It was cloudy, very overcast that day, and we missed it in Nova Scotia.

Probably for food or energy on another dimensional level, yeah. That seems to be what the age-old rituals to appease otherworldly gods have always been about. Dumbing people down is connected to that, I think. Keep the cattle stupid and docile so you can control them more easily. I don't know anything about 'onyx balls', but now that you've mentioned it, I think I'll look it up.

I remember that eclipse. I was 10 and in Northern Tas. I remember it being cloudy and dark, but not dark like night time. Can't remember watching it on T.V. Can remember being outside and trying to look at it without looking it at, if you know what I mean.

TPTB must hate that they can't demonstrate their great powers to us plebs these days by claiming they are responsible for the sun going dark.

If the moon is an artificial sattellite or part of the time control lock etc, then they are still responsible for it and perhaps we have to 'worship' for them to get their jollies?

It looks like they only ran the 'you must watch it on tv' campaign under it's direct path in Melbourne.

Good point about the artificial moon there. I hadn't considered that when it comes to eclipses.

Is this why they are reffered to as "Stars"? to harness that energy by association .
First thing that came to my mind when i read this thread was in 1976 they attempted to promote the swine flu virus , cure, to bad effect for a lot of people .
Now we have just had another solar eclipse 22nd july and a fresh attempt at swine flu fear panic . We also had full solar eclipse in 1999 but i think they probably linked that into the end of the world Y2K hysteria .

sorry just looked it up in my notes, john dee (hermetic order of the golden dawn) allegedly used an obsidean ball in echnocian magic for communication with spirits/demons, not sure they are different to 4th entities, i figure they're not. the reason i mention it is i have been wondering at the possiblity of some sort of crystal receptacle the illuminati/earth bound elites could use for collecting/directing/being empowered by our energy for their use. I agree however that the age-old rituals do suggest it goes to their "gods" in return for i suppose their position, imortality whatever. another result of syphoning our energy and getting us to direct it a superficial and useless things seems to have the added bonus (two birds one stone) of keeping us stupid, docile and spiritually bankrupt. i guess we'd not give it up so easily if we knew what they were doing and were enlightened.
