BREAKING NEWS: New Telescope Observes Otherwise Invisible Terrestrial Entities with Intelligent Movement

(Read the article on one page)

A new report published in the latest edition of the American Journal of Modern Physics has revealed a startling finding – a newly developed telescope with concave lenses has observed, for the first time, entities in our terrestrial environment that are invisible to our eyes and to conventional Galileo telescopes with convex lenses.  Even more surprising is the fact that these entities have been observed to move ‘intelligently’ in the night sky in a manner suggesting unauthorized surveillance of the area.

Revolutionary New Santilli Telescope

The discovery was made by Dr Ruggero Santilli, a highly-regarded expert in mathematics, cosmology, and physics, who has been nominated for Nobel Prizes in physics and chemistry. Dr Santilli developed a new type of telescope that was designed to observe antimatter-light.  This form of light has a negative index of refraction, thus requiring concave lenses to focus it, rather than the traditional convex lenses used in conventional Galileo telescopes.

Using a pair of Galileo and Santilli telescopes, Dr Santilli found the first known evidence of the apparent existence in our universe of antimatter galaxies, antimatter asteroids and antimatter cosmic rays. These results were published in the journal Clifford Algebras and their Applications in 2014. But that is not all the new telescope observed…

Detection of Invisible Terrestrial Entities

In his paper, Apparent Detection via New Telescopes with Concave Lenses of Otherwise Invisible Terrestrial Entities (ITE) , Dr Santilli relates the moment his new telescope found a lot more than he anticipated:

“On September 5, 2015, at 9.30 pm the author aimed a pair of 100 mm Galileo and Santilli telescopes at the night sky over Tampa Bay, Florida, as seen from the NE orientation of the terrace of room 775 of the Vinoy Renaissance Hotel in St. Petersburg… The tests were merely intended for the search of antimatter galaxies and, consequently, the paired telescopes were aimed at the sky, but sudden clouds halted the tests and the author oriented the pair of telescopes horizontally over Tampa Bay.

To his great surprise, unidentified yet clearly visible entities immediately appeared in the screen of the camera attached to the Santilli telescope, without any enlargement, without the same entities being visible to the naked eyes, and without any corresponding image existing in the screen of the camera attached to the Galileo telescope.

This unexpected discovery triggered a novel systematic use of the pair of Galileo and Santilli telescopes, this time, for the search of entities, here called Invisible Terrestrial Entities, that are invisible to our eyes as well as to our optical instruments with convex lenses, but are otherwise fully visible via the Santilli telescope with concave lenses, and are located in our terrestrial environment.”

Dr Santilli’s observations were made over Tampa Bay in Florida.

Invisible Terrestrial Entities of the First Kind (ITE-1)

Following his first observation, Dr Santilli carried out systematic tests and observations, and came to identify two different types of Invisible Terrestrial Entities (ITEs), though he acknowledges that further types may be identified in the future. Both types have been independently verified by colleagues, and their existence was disclosed for the first time at an invited lecture delivered at the St. Petersburg Astronomy Club on September 25, 2015.

He defines the First Kind (ITE-1) as entities that:

  1. are not visible to the human eye or to conventional optical instruments with convex lenses, but are otherwise fully visible via Santilli telescopes with concave lenses;
  2. exist in our terrestrial environment, rather than in deep astro-physical spaces; and
  3. leave “dark images” in the background of digital cameras attached to Santilli telescopes.

Dr Santilli notes that the entities moved slowly and rotated. This particular type of motion excludes impurities in the telescope lens or in the camera as possible interpretations.

He further notes that “the emission of antimatter light does not mean that the entity is made up of antimatter, because the existence of the entities within our atmosphere would imply a cataclysmic explosion due to matter-antimatter annihilation.”

“In short,” writes Dr Santilli, “it appears that ITE-1 consist of matter-entities in our terrestrial environment achieving locomotion via the acquisition of antimatter in their interior with consequential use of matter-antimatter propulsion, and achieve invisibility via the emission of antimatter-light as a sort of exhaust.”

I believe something was lost in translation - he was actually using a kaleidoscope.

Thanks for the laugh. Cleaning coffee off desk now.

Astrophysics generally discounts the possibility of widespread occurrence of antimatter in the universe as it would be expected to interact with ordinary matter, leading to large fluxes of gamma rays which would be easily detectable, and is not detected at all. Thus, the announcement the Dr Santilli had succeeded caught my attention. He presents his (copious) findings on the website of the Santilli Foundation ( Checking possible references on Google Scholar, the first (and only) announcement of antimatter detection using Santilli’s apparatus is:
Preliminary confirmations of antimatter detection via Santilli's telescope with concave Lenses
By PM Bhujbal, JV Kadeisvili, A Nas, S Randall & T. R. Shelke. Checking the academic credentials of the authors, I find that two are from small, presumably non-research, Indian institutions, one is from Night Fox Productions, a Florida based wedding video company, one from the Institute for Basic Research ( which exists to support Dr Santilli’s research and one from Thunder Energies Corporation. Since the bio states that ‘Currently, Dr. Santilli is the Chairman of the Board and Head Scientist of the new publicly traded company, Thunder Energies Corporation’ it seems that none of the authors have the scientific training needed to conduct what must be a difficult study.

This paper purports to have been published in CLIFFORD ANALYSIS, CLIFFORD ALGEBRAS AND THEIR APPLICATIONS (to give it its correct title) at . But in their paper, the ‘ff’ of this url is replaced by an applet causing to a redirect to the Santilli Foundation. I find this behaviour impossible to understand and makes me suspicious of the motives of this group. By claiming to publish in a well established journal, it gives the claim spurious support, which cannot be substantiated.

The paper itself is appallingly written, by a group who are astronomically illiterate. The repeated claim to have photographed the ‘Epsilon Alpha and Beta region of the night sky’ means nothing at all (these Greek letters are sued to designate bright stars in constellations, but since no further information is forthcoming, on their own these statement is meaningless). Further, they claim to have photographed ‘antimatter galaxies, asteroids and cosmic rays’. No competent astronomer could write such a thing as these three classes of astronomical objects have very different characteristics and cosmic rays are not detectable using imaged light. Moreover, they claim to be using only a 55mm lens with a 15 minute exposure, which is inadequate for the observations they claim to make.

The thing to realise is that whatever the primary optics of this telescope might be doing, the important thing is the detector. What is it? A photograph? Solid state? We are not told, but must presume that these will be using lenses working assuming the usual laws of optics. If his ‘antimatter light’ needs special optics to collect the light, why would a normal detector be expected to work for it? We are presented with a
series of images from this device. What are they supposed to show? There is no scale to show how much of the sky is photographed and no indication of what the contours of the detection mean. Given that these authors claim to have chosen an observing site in Sebring, Florida chose ‘for the clarity of the sky due to the absence of nearby large cities’, but then indicate they observed from a hotel window in the middle of a holiday resort. I can only think they are detecting stray light reflected into the optics. There is absolutely no analysis of the images which can be considered competent.

In short, the claim made has not been substantiated in their publications, dodgy practices worthy of scammers are used to further their aims and no independent verification of the claims has been made. All in all: a very poor effort. A lot more work, of competent standard will have to be done to convince anyone that these claims are true.

Excellent job! You really did your homework. I thought it was a fast announcement of something too good to be true. Thanks!

You're welcome. It was too good to be true.
