Last night (February 21, 2008), at approximately 10:30 PM Eastern time (3:30 AM Universal), the United States Navy shot down a US spy satellite, using a modified sea-launched SM-3 missile. The three-stage, solid-fuel Raytheon missile was launched from a Ticonderoga-class Aegis cruiser, stationed for the intercept some 600 miles west of Hawaii.
The Navy decided to take this rather
drastic action because the satellite, dubbed USA-193 for purposes of
the shoot down (its real NRO designation is apparently classified),
contained a fuel cell full of
hydrazine, a volatile and potentially
hazardous rocket fuel that could cause sickness or even death to
humans if they were exposed to it upon re-entry.
A public demonstration of such
technological proficiency undeniably changes the balance of
Anti-Ballistic Missile power greatly in favor of the US.
What caught our eye was not so much the
real-world political implications of this technological muscle
flexing, but rather the strange and ritualistic pattern under which
it was being carried out.
As we repeatedly document in “Dark Mission,” over and over again we see these numbers inexplicably expressed:
So, we knew “something” interesting was happening when we saw the planned location and time of the first SM-3 Missile launch.
The launch took place at 3:26 AM Universal time, with the intercept at 3:30 AM Universal time, from somewhere very near 19.5 degrees North latitude.
In fact, in what senior military officials acknowledged was a highly unusual move, Defense Secretary Robert Gates “just happened” to be in the area, in Hawaii, at 19.5 degrees!
And, in a most unusual command decision, the Secretary - not the Captain of the Aegis cruiser Lake Erie - was the one giving the firing orders from Hawaii - personally.
And here (below), courtesy of your government at work, is what happened 150 miles above the Northeastern Pacific last night:

Oh, and by the way - all of this took place smack-dab in the middle of a Total Lunar Eclipse - the last one visible from North America until 2010!
There are just too many “Hyperdimensional coincidences” around this event for our comfort.
In our next installment, we will provide information that this entire incident has far less to do with SDI than with potential actions to be taken much farther from the Earth in future years.
