APOLLO 14 “MOON WALKER”
Written Thursday, February 4th, 2016
Early on Friday morning, February 5th, my friend Bob Reid notified me with the sad news of the demise of legendary Apollo astronaut Dr. Edgar Mitchell, who passed away in Florida on February 4th, 2016 at the age of 85.
Every February 7th, I celebrate the life of the original “Flash Gordon” with a group of like-minded friends whose lives were touched, moved, inspired by the original Flash Gordon serials, starring the now-immortal science fiction movie hero, Buster Crabbe, who was born on February 7th, 1908.
“Flash Gordon’s Birthday Dinner,” which I convene each year is usually a happy celebration, but today is different, tinged by sadness as I reflect on the passing of one America’s true Flash Gordon heroes, Apollo 14 astronaut and premiere “Moon Walker,” Dr. Edgar Mitchell, in Lake Worth, Florida last Thursday, February 4th, 2016.
The Launch of Apollo 14
January 31, 1971. 4:03:02 pm,
Of course, as a young man growing up during “The Kennedy Era,” I knew very well of Edgar Mitchell and his legendary “Moon Walk.” Edgar Mitchell’s “Moon Walk” lasted more than 9 hours and set a record that may endure through the 21st Century.
However, more importantly, my interest in his flight was piqued further when I learned secret details of his lunar journey. Dr. Mitchell’s work became of life-long interest for me because, as a Fordham University undergrad studying (para)psychology at the time of Dr. Mitchell’s trip to the Moon, I became even more intrigued with his translunar experiences when I read in a major national magazine that while on the Moon and in his return to Earth, Edgar Mitchell had secretly conducted experiments in extrasensory perception, or ESP (as it was called then), including attempts at telepathic communications with friends and associates, acting as ” psychic targets” here on Earth to receive his telepathic transmissions from the Moon! That item was an amazing revelation for the times.
Although few details of the ESP experiments were given at that time, the simple fact that Dr. Mitchell, a world renown Apollo astronaut, had engaged in scientific ESP studies, instantly raised the respectability of ESP research as serious subject to be legitimately explored as Science (with a capital “S”).
Furthermore, the revelation of Mitchell’s ESP experiments instantly elevated the status, legitinacy and respectability of the small group of dedicated ESP investigators and researchers of the paranormal ( including UFOlogists) who, in general, were largely shunned by science and scientists (small “s”) and who, held in disdain by mainstream science, had been relegated , banshed to “the outlands” of what was commonly labelled (and regularly debunked) as “fringe science.”
All of that changed on the day that a very “straight-laced” national news magazine profiled Apollo 14 astronaut Edgar Mitchell, reporting his remarkable feats of strength endurance during his Moon Walk. Foremost in mass media’s attention was Mitchell’s world record set while walking on the Moon for more than 9 hours. That is a record that may stand for 100 years or, perhaps, for even longer, given the chaotic state of world affairs today, and the consequent retardation of manned lunar exploration for the foreseeable future.
Editor’s Note: Since 2016, the situation described above has changed radically since the election of President Donald J. Trump, the establishment of the U.S. Space Force, and the initiation of NASA’s Project Artemis: America’s wreturn to the Moon.
“Something Really Big” Happened To Mitchell Returning From the Moon
As remarkable as the revelation of Dr. Mitchell’s translunar ESP experimentation was, there was an even more amazing, but glossed over detail in the magazine article, which gave me a hint that “Something Really Big” had happened to Edgar Mitchell during the Apollo 14 flight, something which was being“played down” at the same time that it was being reported.
I recall even now (after more than 40 years), the deep and curious impression that the reportage of this event made upon me, striking very strongly on a psychic level. I read the paragraph several times over as I sensed that there was a subliminal message in the account.
I sensed upon reading the report that something of great significance was being veiled , (not quite hidden) but not out in the open.
To me, the narrative implied something bigger than what was being told, and it suggested in coded words, a vague description of a cosmic event of some sort that had transpired during Mitchell’s journey back from the Moon.
Direct Contact With a Higher Form of Consciousness in Outer Space
I was intrigued by the magazine report that while returning from the Moon Edgar Mitchell had had a “peak experience” that involved a significant expansion of consciousness, one that was triggered by the sight of the Earth floating freely in space.
The sense of euphoria that the stronaut felt during that singular experience led Dr. Mitchell to enter a state of higher cinsciousness and gave him a sense he had made contact with a form of superconsciousness that tied all things together into One. It appeared to me that Edgar Mitchell had experienced direct contact with a higher mind, which conveyed a sense of Universal Intelligence.
Hindu yogis desribe that state as arriving at “Samadi.”
Mitchell’s brief description of this psychic state had revealed to to the world the veritable existence of a higher state of consciousness, a higher state of mind, potentially attainable by human beings to arrive at unity with The Universal Mind, .
The concept of One Mind that is all-encompassing in nature is not new. In point of fact, it is more than ancient. It is primordial and symbolized most readily by the image of “The Eye of Providence” or “The All-Seeing Eye.”
In ancient lore, to attain the “All-Seeing Eye”also signified rebirth as Horus the Falcon …
HORUS – The ancient Egyptian Redeemer of Mankind
Arthur C. Clarke predicted in his novels, “2001: a Space Odyssey” and “Childhood’s End,” the eventual merger of the human mind with “Superconsciousness” to become The Star Child in “2001: A Space Odyssey,” but his prediction is even more literal and dramatic in “Childhood’s End.”
The End of Mankind ( to be read here as “the purpose of Mankind’s creation”) as foreseen by Arthur C. Clarke in “Childhood’s End,” will be marked by the the absorption of all minds into one great, overarching field of awareness, which is Universal Intelligence. Clark foresaw that Mankind, having evolved in some future altered state into a telepathic global consciousness, literally a form of “hive mind,” will be absorbed by a yet higher intelligence that is tantamount to God.
At that final moment of “Childhood’s End,” the Hive Mind of Mankind is predicted by Clarke to be subsumed as a whole into an even greater, all-encompassing Universal Mind, a Ring of Power, perhaps symbolically signifying Clarke’s concept of the return of The Cosmic Christ to gather up the souls of the Elect quite literally into ….
One Mystical Body from The Alpha to Omega Point
In his apocalyptic scheme of things to come, Clarke’s end suggests a union with The Divine, i.e. a personal union with the Mind of God, Itself, as a single, unified state of super consciousness, which the Swiss psychologist C. G. Jung called the “Mysterium Coniunctionis,” or “mysterious conjunction” of the human mind and soul with the divine prinicple in a mystical union with the “Myysterium,” namely God.
The Jesuit scientist-philospher, Teilhard de Chardin referred to that same concept of a “Universal Mind” as the “Noosphere,” which means the Sphere of Knowing, or Universal Awareness, i.e Cosmic Consciousness, and from which the Institute for Noetic Sciences derives its name.
Teilhard de Chardin’s own “peak experience,” which had occurred in Asia 50 years before Edgar Mitchell’s, gave Teilhard a vision of the Universe as a Single Living Being from its inception, called The Alpha Point, with a body composed of divine creative energy joined with and matter, coexisting dynamically in spacetime, growing, extending, and expanding forever toward a destination to fulfill a universal purpose, always moving toward an end point called “OMEGA POINT.”
Of course, the magazine article did not state that “Edgar Mitchell has seen God,” but it clearly suggested that something extraordinary, and quite outside of so-called “normal” human experience had happened to Edgar Mitchell “out there” between the Moon and the Earth. It was clear to me that its import was great.
Something unusual, something extraordinary, something beyond our ken and the normal boundaries of the human experience had happened to Edgar Mitchell while on the Moon and, more importanly, during Apollo 14’s transit through deep space in Apollo 14 as it returned to Earth.
For me, the wording and the phrasing, along with a marked reference to “peak experience” (a key word in vogue in psychology at that time), a term coined by psychologist Abraham Maslow, who was best known, “for creating Maslow’s hierarchy of needs, a theory of psychological health predicated on fulfilling innate human needs in priority, culminating in “self-actualization.” (SeeWikipedia)
These Maslowian ideas of “peak experience” and “self-actualization” were identical with “Centering,” “Self-realization,“ “Enlightenment” or “illumination” (in modern terms). These ideas were already familiar to me as a student of parapsychology pursuing the same quest, seeking the very same goal of “self-actualization.”
The mention of these concepts in regard to Edgar Mitchell’s experiences provided strong support for my belief in telepathic ESP and showed me that, in one sense or another, in a state of extrasensory perception, Edgar Mitchell had experienced what we called then and now …
That memorable report made of me a lifelong student of Edgar Mitchell’s work, the most important of which in my estimation were direct outgrowths of the “peak experience” that he had had transiting back to Earth from the Moon. These works were Dr. Mitchell’s establishment and founding of The Institute of Noetic Sciences (IONS) for the exploration of human consciousness, as well as, becoming a strong global voice promoting the peaceful uses of outer space, and working with Carol Rosin, personal assitant to Werner Von Braun,to promote and adavance the De-Weaponization of Outer Space.
The Institute of Noetic Sciences (IONS)
Just as President John F. Kennedy had done with his contraversial Nuclear Test Ban Treaty in 1963, Dr. Edgar Mitchell called for all nation to ban the proliferation nuclear weapons (or Star Wars technology) in outer space.
As Wikipedia recounts:
“Mitchell’s interests included consciousness and paranormal phenomena. On his way back to Earth during the Apollo 14 flight he had a powerful savikalpa samādhi experience, and also claimed to have conducted private ESP experiments with his friends on Earth.
The results of said experiments were published in the Journal of Parapsychology in 1971. He was the founder of the Institute of Noetic Sciences (IONS) for the purpose of consciousness research and other “related phenomena”. On the Opie and Anthony radio show, Buzz Aldrin described a psychic communication experiment that Mitchell conducted during the Apollo 14 flight, wherein Mitchell attempted to transmit information to participants on Earth.
Mitchell’s Remote Healing of Kidney Cancer
Wikipedia continues: “Mitchell claimed that a teenage remote healer living in Vancouver and using the pseudonym “Adam Dreamhealer” helped him heal kidney cancer from a distance. Mitchell said that while he never had a biopsy, “I had a sonogram and MRI that was consistent with renal carcinoma.” Adam worked (distantly) on Mitchell from December 2003 until June 2004, when the “irregularity was gone and we haven’t seen it since”. “
More than 30 years later, I finally got to meet Dr. Edgar Mitchell on January 30th, 2003, when he lectured at The Explorers Club in New York City, just 2 days before the tragic loss of Space Shuttle Columbia.
It was there at the Explorers Club that I heard Dr. Mitchell recount in great detail the circumstances surrounding his “peak experience,” which I had a chance to discuss with him that very night.
Our exchanges at The Explorers Club began a 13-year long friendship and correspondence that lasted through this week just before Ed passed the bar. I would like to add or more aptly assert that if his translunar ESP experiments were successful (as they appear now to have been), I pray that our correspondence may yet continue for a while as we both know with certainty that we don’t need postage stamps for telepathic contact, we just need the right envelope.
A score of friends and fans of Dr. Edgar Mitchell have contacted me expressing their commiseration, sharing sympathies and the experiences that they had Dr. Mitchell over the the last few decades.
UFO Spotlight shines on and salutes Dr. Mitchell as he crosses the bar, and in tribute, we present this memorial page to him and the historic achievements of the Apollo 14 astronauts.

A PEAK EXPERIENCE
A peak experience is a moment accompanied by a euphoric mental state often achieved by self-actualization of the individuals chosen.
“The concept of self-actualization was originally developed by Abraham Maslow in 1964, who describes “peak experiences” as “rare, exciting, oceanic, deeply moving, exhilarating, elevating experiences that generate an advanced form of perceiving reality, and which are even mystic and magical in their effect upon the experimenter.”
There are several unique characteristics of a peak experience, but each element is perceived together in a holistic manner that creates the moment of reaching one’s full potential. Peak experiences can range from simple activities to intense events; however, it is not necessarily about what the activity is, but the ecstatic, care-free feeling that is being experienced during it.“

The Discovery of The Apollo 14 “Sky Object”
Below is a high resolution photograph taken by Edgar Mitchell while on the surface of the Moon, showing an anomalous (UFO) object that approached the Apollo 14 landing zone during his Moon Walk.
The photo shown above (AS14-68-9472HR) was taken by Edgar Mitchell as he shot a series of 70 mm. panoramic photos of the lunar landscape.
I first brought this photo to Ed’s attention in 2008, and again 2 years later, when we discussed the “sky object” again in greater detail when I shared my enlargements and enhancements with him during a telephone conference call with him and a fellow astronaut in 2010.
The Apollo 14 Sky Object – Close Up
Robert Morningstar’s Enhancement of AS14-68-9472HR
To avoid “leading the witness,” whenever Ed and I discussed this photo, on the phone or in emails, I refrained from ever calling it a “UFO,” and so, for our mutual comfort in discussing it, I dubbed it “The Apollo 14 Sky Object,” or simply “the sky object.”
The image I’d shared with Ed in 2008 was not the enlarged enhancement that the reader sees above. So, when we spoke on the phone, I sent him the images shown above via email so that I could gauge his reactions in “realtime.”
I sent the file and I heard a “ping” over he phone, signalling it’s arrival in his omputer. When Ed opened the file, I was delighted to hear him exclaim on the other side, with some measure of excitement :
“Hey, Robert! There really IS something there!”
(Smile) … Ed agreed that the sky object was indeed “anomalous” …
Or perhaps it was something floating down that fell off the spacecraft…. (I smile again).

A Call for World Peace & Disarmament of Outer Space
The American Freedom Radio producer, Danny Romero, played the audio of this at the beginning of my (Carol Rosin’s) first show, today. Here is the American Freedom Radio show:
I’m too sad for words. Sending this with Love in Edgar’s Peace.
Thanks for all you are doing for Edgar. It will be wonderful to be included (in UFO Digest’s & UFO Spotlight’s tribute) …
I sit here with our forth coming book on my lap, in tears, thinking about my best friend in all this work for so many decades dedicated to maintaining the peace in space for peace on Earth since we started collaborating in ’74.
Ed’s been so hoping Russia and China leaders will again champion the updated treaty ASAP that will ban all space based weapons so human conscious will rise and we can live sustainably and explore to learn more about ourselves and our cosmic neighbors.
Ed knew there are no enemy ETs … always repeating “there is zero evidence of that” and always supporting the Treaty signing, always trying to educate everyone about the vital importance of preventing the weaponization of space and the serious relevance of that to our being able to survive sustainably, and so humans can move in peace into the cosmos for all the benefits and opportunities.
This will bring undreamed of benefits to Earth as we learn more about who we really are, and where we stand in the Universe.
Edgar’s intelligence, courage, heart and his determination to get this message across, about the importance of keeping the peace in space “out there,” amidst the same OL’ rumors, ridicule and disinformation, is an inspiration and will be forever to so many of us – on Earth and those in space❣

“Crossing the Bar”
By Alfred Lord Tennyson
Sunset and evening star
And one clear call for me!
And may there be no moaning of the bar,
When I put out to sea,
But such a tide as moving seems asleep,
Too full for sound and foam,
When that which drew from out the boundless deep
Turns again home.
Twilight and evening bell,
And after that the dark!
And may there be no sadness of farewell,
When I embark;
For though from out our bourne of Time and Place
The flood may bear me far,
I hope to see my Pilot face to face
When I have crossed the bar.

Researchers uncover evidence of water on the inside of the Moon…
Researchers at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville are once again turning what scientists thought they knew about the moon on its head.
Last fall, researchers, including Larry Taylor, a distinguished professor in the Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences, discovered “lunar dew” on the moon’s surface — absorbed “water” in the uppermost layers of lunar soil.
This discovery of water debunked beliefs held since the return of the first Apollo rocks that the moon was bone-dry.

Now, scientists, including Taylor and Yang Liu, research assistant professor in the Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences, have discovered that water on the moon is more widespread on the outside and inside of the moon with similarities to water in volcanic systems on Earth.
Their research will be featured in the article, “Lunar Apatite with Terrestrial Volatile Abundances,” in the July 22 edition of the scientific journal, Nature.
Unlike lunar dew, which is believed to come from an outside source such as solar wind which brings hydrogen into contact with the Moon’s oxygen, the water discovered by Taylor and Liu is internal, arising from an entirely different origin.
How it got there is not yet known.
The water may have been added by impacting comets, which contain ice, during or after the formation of the moon and Earth.
The existence of volcanoes on the moon more than 4 billion years ago gave the researchers a clue that water might exist inside the body, since the dynamics of volcanoes on Earth are mostly driven by water.
Therefore, the scientists made their novel discovery by examining a lunar basalt brought back from the 1971 Apollo 14 mission.
Using secondary ion mass spectrometry at the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena, Calif., scientists determined volatile elements in a calcium phosphate mineral are very similar in the same mineral found on Earth.
The scientists said this provides “robust evidence for the presence of water in the interior of the moon from where some lunar rocks were derived.
This demonstrates a closer chemical and geologic relationship between the Earth and moon than previously known. We must now re-evaluate the volatile inventories of the moon, relative to the Earth.”
The finding of volatiles on the moon has deep implications for how it, and the Earth, formed.
It is generally believed that the moon was created when the early Earth was hit by a Mars-sized proto-planet called Theia, melting and vaporizing itself and a large chunk of the Earth.
The cloud of particles created by the impact later congealed to form the moon, which supposedly was devoid of highly volatile elements such as hydrogen and chlorine. However, the researchers’ discovery of these volatiles challenges this theory.
“If water in the Moon was residue, water kept during the giant impact, it is surprising that water survived the impact at all because less volatile elements, such as sodium and potassium, are strongly depleted. The details of the impact theory need to be re-examined,” Liu said.
The discovery of abundant and ubiquitous water on the moon could mean a human settlement on the moon is not so far-fetched.
Currently, the endeavour would be very expensive.
For example, it costs $25,000 to take one pint of water to the moon. However, if scientists devise processes to easily recover this water from the lunar rocks for drinking water and fuel, a human settlement is not out of reach.
“Now we have ready sources of water that can be consumed by plants and humans but also electrolyzed into liquid hydrogen and liquid oxygen to develop rocket fuel,” Taylor said.
“Until the recent discovery of water in and on the moon, it was going to be a very energy-intensive endeavor to separate these elements from the lunar rocks and soil.”
Taylor and Liu collaborated with George Rossman, Yunbin Guan, John Eiler and Edward Stolper at CalTech, as well as Jeremy Boyce at CalTech, and the University of California-Los Angeles.
Their research was funded by NASA Cosmochemistry, the National Science Foundation and the Moore Foundation for Support of the Caltech Microanalysis Center.
