A BOYLE-BASED astronomer and scientist has published controversial findings showing evidence of space craft following defined paths around the earth, and over Boyle, based on years of data and recordings from the local area and further afield.
Eamonn Ansbro is attracting considerable national media attention for a discovery and breakthrough in his research into extraterrestrial existence.
Mr Ansbro, who has been researching the existence of extraterrestrial intelligence for more then 20 years, has given presentations on his work across the globe, including a presentation to the French government, and said that while his work may prove controversial it was carried out “scientifically”.
His work has been published by the European Space Agency. He works as part of a global group of scientists, OSETI (Optical Search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence).
Mr Ansbro has set up an “all sky camera” comprised of eleven cameras that monitor the whole sky hemisphere around the clock to record anything that moves around or is unusual. He said that he along with other scientists had collated data to suggest that extraterrestrial spacecraft were a reality and are circumnavigating the earth.
“We haven’t proven our discovery to the scientific community yet and don’t have the resources but we can show that extraterrestrial space craft are on specific orbital tracks around the earth,” Mr Ansbro told the Herald.
He refers to the extraterrestrial probes as ‘Identified Flying Objects’ or IFOs rather than UFOs (Unidentified Flying Objects) and said that he had tested existing theories that these objects followed defined orbital tracks around the earth at specific times.
“When you take all that data and apply it to this theory we have found that it fits with the computerised time graphs and that we can predict when future sightings will occur and we have found that it has happened in Boyle,” he explained.
Mr Ansbro said that there had been sightings in the Boyle area in 1997 and that he had carried out a further 10 investigations into local sightings since then. In total he has investigated 120 cases over the past 20 years.
Mr Ansbro also said that given the strength of the research in the local area there was huge potential to put Boyle on the world map by establishing a UFO and science centre in the town.
He said that previous proposals to develop such a facility at King House had the potential to see the historic house becoming a major world tourist attraction and that he was open to getting involved with such a venture.
Mr Ansbro said that it needn’t cost Roscommon County Council anything to set up because funding was available from Europe and agencies, such as the European Space Agency.
He said that the proposal could really work at King House because of the volume of local scientific data recorded in the Boyle area over the past decade.
“The tourism potential is huge,” he said, drawing comparisons with the UFO centre in Roswell New Mexico, which attracts huge numbers of visitors every year and also another UFO centre in Japan.
